Fair and Balanced News? It's difficult to remain a credible news source when one of your vice presidents (Bill Sammon) admits to misrepresenting the facts for a political agenda. I knew something smelled fishy.
Fitness and Other Foolishness I was searching online for toilet-related stuff and came across the following image for urinal etiquette (Thanks to Dave Graff @ deviantart.com): More research lead to individuals comparing the personal space rule for urinals to etiquette for exercise equipment, such as, the treadmill and elliptical machines. Here is one such discussion of many: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/archive/index.php/t-121554391.html.
In response to the need for personal space on exercise equipment, I have developed the following simple solution. Create a sign that states the machine is broken and tape it to the console of adjacent machine(s). I have created signs for 5 of the most popular gyms for your convenience: (Opens in a new window, so allow pop-ups.)
24 Hour Fitness
Bally Total Fitness
While on the Subject of Exercise... I recently joined Gold's Gym for the amazing price of $20 per month (or so I thought). Of course they require a credit card for billing, so for several months when I checked my credit card statement, I was being charged the correct amount. Then a few days ago, I get a charge for three times the agreed amount. Thinking this was an honest mistake, I disputed the charge with my cc company. Apparently, Gold's Gym sneaks a 'price guarantee charge' on your cc and hopes that you don't notice. I say 'sneak' because, first, I never signed a contract that they claimed contained the agreement for this ridiculous charge. Second, I was ranting and raving to the salesman about how great this price was, when, if you add the additional charge, the price is comparable to other gyms. Of course the salesman never uttered a word to this effect. So, anyways, just wanted to give a heads up to anyone shopping for a gym membership....watch for this hidden charge.
Me...Good. Back in elementary school, it seems that many of us were taught not to use the term 'good' EVER! We were supposed to use a substitute of 'well', or the like, instead of 'good'. The exercise was meant to make us sound smarter. Like 'pardon me?' instead of 'huh?' (which I completely agree with). The term 'big' was in there also, but it didn't seem to take hold. Now it seems that EVERYONE has a problem with 'me'. Many people believe that the proper use ALWAYS has to be 'myself'. Try to remember this during your next conversation or when watching TV, you will get a kick out of how many people commit this grammar crime. I might even be guilty myself.
What Happened to Walmart? They must hace changed their business model. They used to be the least expensive store...period. Then they started advertising like crazy, TV, flyers (on super nice glossy paper), probably radio. I imagine they were trying to reach the Nouveau poor. I think they already had the old-school poor and the cheap SOB's like me. Well as far as I am concerned, they better go back to just cheap prices, because once Daddy gets a job again, the suburban housewife that was 'forced' to shop at Walmart is now going back to her gourmet stores. Meanwhile, the tried and true (now discouraged Walmart shoppers) that noticed the price increases and volume reductions, have been price shopping and will not assume as they did in the past that Walmart will have not only the lowest price, but significantly lower price. Oh, and what's up with the ordering/stocking? And they are considering drive-thru's. Ha!
Free Communication Weekend at Eharmony They forgot to mention it's Free Canned Response Communication Weekend. If you actually want to communicate you must join. Big shock there, right? Oh and just to set the record straight...a friend told me about the Eharmony thing.
Independence Day Drink Specials
Seems that some of this 'talk' about curbing drunk driving is just that...'talk'. I'm visiting a friend in Phoenix AZ over the Fourth of July weekend. We decide to check out some local bars. Knowing that a few drinks can put you over the legal limit, I decide to hold off on the first couple drinks and order coffee instead. Well, the bartender at 'Hudsons' informs me that they do not have coffee, and she does not offer to make any or even suggest a non-alcoholic alternative when I told her I was a designated driver (albeit temporary). This was astonishing to me as a newly enlisted designated driver. I had alway heard stories that sounded similar to some kind of super hero, dynamic duo 'local authorities and local establishments team together to fight DUI'.
Turns out after a few more bars that I would have been better off with the bar that didn't serve coffee to designated drivers. Several other bars actually had the nerve to charge me for coffee. The first was a bar called 'Spuds'. They charged me $0.50. Not too bad right? Later come to find that the first cup only comes with one free refill. What?! We didn't stick around long enough to find out what the cost would be beyond that. They probably would have thrown me out for not drinking alcohol. It gets even better. The next bar called 'Bullocks' charged me $2.00 for coffee as a designated driver.
So in the end, it's all about money. Bars claim to care about their customers. Police and Sherrif claim to care about the citizens. So they boast on the local news after the weekend about how many DUI arrests they made. How about trying to prevent them in the first place.
Did you ever wonder if Condoleezza Rice has an Uncle Ben?
Is Dick Army a branch of the military? If so, what kind of weapons do they use? Perhaps a Dick Lugar.
