Sick, Twisted…

…and Republican.

Florida Rep. Mark Foley’s resignation came just hours after ABC News questioned the congressman about a series of sexually explicit instant messages involving congressional pages, high school students who are under 18 years of age.

In Congress, Rep. Foley (R-FL) was part of the Republican leadership and the chairman of the House caucus on missing and exploited children.

The fact that this freak resigned so quickly and easily makes me wonder if there’s more that he’s hiding. Not really jumping to conclusions, but wondering out-loud.

Some commenters on the original article that are Republican claimed that it was some sort of witch hunt or slow news day. After the truth comes out, this is honestly not about one party or another. It’s about a sick, twisted guy that made the laws that will be used to prosecute himself.


Best Deal?

Not really sure if this is your “best deal”, but it’s a damn cool ad for McDonalds!

My Mayor’s Pyromania

The mayor of my town would rather burn down buildings than provide funding for an Independence Day fireworks display.

Maybe I should get a better policy for my homeowner’s insurance, now?

Misleading Advertisements?

Over on my main site, I noticed an advertisement that looked interesting to me. I wanted to check out what the link was about, so rather than click on the ad (which is not allowed in the TOS), I entered the address that was listed directly below the ad, in another tab.

The headline read “Student Filmmaker Missing” and the text of the ad said “From The Set Of “The Grudge 2″. Follow His Story. In Theatres 10/13.” Just below the advertisement, the address “www.jasongrudge2blog.com” was written. I opened a new tab, typed in the address and it led me to a placeholder page, where no site had been built, yet.

On some level, this really bugged me, because the address that was listed wasn’t the address that the ad would lead people to. I haven’t clicked on the ad, so I’m hoping that somebody else will see it, click it, and let me know the actual address that they are taken to.

Until I know where the ad leads, I’m not going to worry about it, too much. The fact that this seems misleading, though, has made me doubt the effectiveness of some of the other ads that are shown on the site. If you happen to see the ad and click on it, please take note of the address, and leave a comment, here.

A Different Type of Museum


…sort of.

…I think.

My Nerd Score

Again, this really doesn’t prove too much, but I had to post the results somewhere:
I am nerdier than 59% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!

To be nerdier (I prefer the word “geek”) than almost 60% of all people really isn’t a big deal, I suppose. I really thought it would have been a little bit more in-depth, though. I guess that’s what you can expect from these types of quizes, though.
