Nike’s latest product

04.29.2008 · Posted in Absurdity, Technology

I saw a facebook ad for this strange looking Nike product called the SportBand. Am I the only one who thinks this looks like one of those electric dog collars? I have images of people being forced to run farther and faster, trying to rip this thing off their neck as if it were a ...

After The Today Show aired a clip of this girl, Jim told me about it. How amazing, and strange, that she would continue to cheer after she had fractured her spine, sufferred a concusion and bruised her lung! She was back on the show this morning and Katie asked her what she was thinking. She ...

Amazon recommends …

02.26.2006 · Posted in Absurdity

I’ve always been a big fan of amazon.com. Yes, they’re bad for the locally-owned bookstore, and that’s unfortunate. It’s always great to see when the little guy goes online to sell their wares via Amazon’s partner programs.
