Brain Floss

I'm sitting here on the couch taking care of my pregnant stomach-flu infested wifey and she's watching The View. The four vacuous windbags on the show are spewing platitudes about how fragile mens' egos are when they start talking about some other anonymous windbag that postulated that by 2020 men would be having sex with robots. This caused Barbwa Waltwas to bring up the Steppford Wives movie where men were having sex with robots that not just had sex, but, and I paraphrase, "I don't know how they would make such a thing, but really enjoyed sex."

Now this was bad enough because it got me thinking about Barbwa Waltwas having bad sex for her whole life, but she then committed, what I can only assume, is a UN identified war crime. She said, "And then when its done they (the robot Steppford Wives) do that thing that Meg Ryan did in that movie in the diner where she goes..." and then it all went dark.

I could hear the blood rushing in my ears as the world collapsed in upon me. The glorious prepubescent mental image of Meg Ryan in the diner was superimposed upon Vacuous Windbag the fourth heaving and gasping on my HDTV like a salmon that had been batted on shore by a bear.

I can only hope that medical science some day finds a way to selectively remove images from the human mind.

You had so much hair back then. . .

The carefully chosen words that my wife uttered when I first showed her just how cool her husband was in high school.

By the way, I'm the one in the white coat.

Isn't it ironi*cough* *cough* *hack*

Maybe when you listen to enough of the news you start to tune out some of the awfulness in the world. Maybe you filter things so that you don't just walk around sad all day. Maybe finding humor in the world is the only way to do that. Maybe when you say you, you mean I.

I just think its hilarious that this coal miner is smoking a cigarette.

He should be careful. That stuff'll kill ya.

Yahoo(Exclamation Point) developed Firefox Plugin

I've been slowly migrating all of my web browser bookmarks to That way I can always get to them and I don't have to sync them between work and home and I JUST FEEL LIKE IT OK!!!

Anyway, there are piles upon steaming festering piles of crappy extensions for Firefox, my web browser of choice.  However, Yahoo(Exclamation Point), which owns has released their own Firefox extension (and one extension to bind them).  Quite simply, it kicks @$$.

It replaces all of the Firefox bookmark related keybindings with the corresponding action for your new bookmark sidebar.  You can search bookmarks, post new ones and they behave just like local Firefox bookmarks (aka "loser" bookmarks) but they are stored on with all the Web 2.1 goodness that that implies .

So go check it out.  Its fun.
