Unexplainable Toilet Paper Ads

Well, this is all bob's bs, isn't it?

Off looking for cool images again this morning. Needing a roll of TP for an upcoming contest - well, looking for TP on the intarwebs is anything butt shall I say interesting.

Butt there's one ad I found from Spain - in English for some assinine reason - that stands out from the rest(room):

Yes, gentle reader, that's black toilet paper. Also comes in red. And several other colors. Not to worry though, the manufacturer's website states "Colorfast for its intended use".

I'd hope so.

Colonel Sanders Spotted In Rachel, Nevada

So the other night there was a special on SyFy about Area 51. They showed some aerial photos, so I brought up Google Earth to see the area for myself.

Rachel, NV is the nearest municipality to Groom Lake, one of the (in)famous nicknames for Area 51, so I zoomed into there. Sure, there's the little A'Le'Inn, just down the road from Extraterrestrial Highway. And on the corner of Groom Road and Old Mill Street is...

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

OK, so maybe Google is adding random ads to their maps. Or KFC had some extra advertising dollars and didn't know what to do with them.

Or someone is hiding something.

Comments are welcome.

[Update: Seems KFC did have some extra advertising dollars laying around - KFC Unveils New Logo With Giant Image in Nevada Desert]

Kudos To KSTU

Kudos to local channel 13 - KSTU - for being the ONLY station to show the Endeavour liftoff from Cape Canaveral this morning.

Goosebumps I must say.

I've been playing around with a widget I found on another site today - this one's from the News Distribution Network:

It's free. We like free. There are various configurations available, so I may be incorporating it somewhere on the site.

I'll let you know when to look for it...

Well, This Is A Bit Unnerving

One more reason to hate Fox News.

Yesterday, someone on the intarwebs did a search for this phrase:

"viruses after visiting fox new[s] website"

...and landed on this page.

I'd avoid Fox websites.

Can I Quote You On That?

From Mike:

Thanks for the link, Mike!

I Can Tell It's Photoshopped

By now, unless you've been under a rock, you've seen this image:

But what's that sitting on the laptop in front of Hillary?

Nuclear Boy

I suppose the subtitle would be "Sh!t Happens":

Thanks, Ron!


Driving through Layton, Utah, yesterday - this was one of those rare occasions when I get to go past the iron curtain of 60th South - I was stopped at a signal where, as per usual, my mind was drifting off and noticed a most peculiar sign on a building.

My mind read it in total; as the text, in three-foot-high red letters, was rather run together, I saw the literal-sounding DawDrawPin - DODROPINN.

I was trying to find a location I'd never been to, a storage facility just off the freeway. "Just look for this, turn right at that, and you're there," as I'd been told.

Well, I didn't see this, and drove well past that, and ended up at a completely different that.

So I got on the phone with a co-worker that not only works beyond the iron curtain, but lives near the second that.

"Oh, you drove past this, that, and the other thing."

No sh!t.

SO while I looked for that, I had him on the phone. Conveniently, when I saw the three-foot-high red letters.

"What the hell is DawDrawPin?"


"At the corner of Hwy 193 and Hill Field Road. Behind the Pizza Hut."

Much muttering was heard in my truck when he exclaimed "OH! The Do Drop Inn!"

"But... wait... that should be spelled... Oh."

I'll put that on my bucket list. Something else to "do".

Osama bin Laden Was Buried At Sea

And people were concerned about the pollution from the nuclear waste in Japan.

It's FOUR Feet

So I'm sitting in the left turn lane in downtown Salt Lake City at the corner of 3rd West and North Temple. Ultimate goal is to go southbound on 3rd West. You know the corner.

I'm sitting behind a couple cars, waiting our turn. At least it seems there are a couple cars. In fact, there's only one; and it is sitting a good fifteen feet from the crosswalk.

One signal. Two signals. On number three, I'm getting a bit steamed, and so are the drivers behind me, a good five or six by now. So I take the initiative, get out of my car, walk up to the oblivious female driver, and ask "Would you be so kind as to move your car up about ten feet?"

She does, as I'm walking back to my car. And wouldn't you know, on signal number four, we finally get a green arrow. And I can hear the applause from the drivers behind me.

OK, so this wasn't recently, as I have no real reason any more to be this far north, at least on a daily basis. I rarely get further north than about 60th South. This happened ten years or more ago. Since I'm sure it's now a nightmare in itself to make a left turn at that intersection, since North Temple is chewed up beyond any recognition of what it was previously.

Oh yeah, the point.

In Utah, there's an oft-misinterpreted law that says one must wait FOUR feet behind a crosswalk so as to not impede foot traffic in said crosswalk. I don't recall any such law in California where first I learnt to drive. In fact, I seem to recall getting that question wrong in my first written drivers' exam when I first got to Utah.

FOUR feet. Not FOURTEEN. And certainly not FORTY. Fellow Utahns: Take a look at how far some people are behind the crosswalk at your next red light.

NOW you know why.
