Caloric Shotgun

Friday already? I haven’t had much time to websurf, but here’s some stuff I found along the way. Enjoy, if you dare!!!!

  • Pirate's Life: Video (funny, pirate, video)
    • Look out! It's the office pirate! (Check out the videos)
  • TOM CRUISE'S MEDICAL FORUM (blog, article, humor)
    • An interview with Dr. Tom Cruise
  • How to Make a Million Dollars, by Marshall Brain (article, howto, lifehacks, finance)
    • I was talking about a cash cow earlier. Well, here we have it. Just learn how to make a million dollars.
  • 7 Signs You’re Obsessed with Dieting (food, health, diet, article)
    • Dieting should just be the way you eat, not your obsession. Eat right and don't let your lifestyle drive you insane.
  • 6 Tips to Reset Your “Fat Thermostat” (diet, food, health, exercise)
    • Your body is designed to store fat, and dieting can (paradoxically) trigger the fat-storing mechanism. Here are 6 tips to help you avoid that.
  • 10 Weight-Loss Myths: Don't Be Fooled! (diet, health)
    • Myths busted by MSN Health & Fitness. I agree with all of them. One point: Diet drinks do not help you lose weight UNLESS you are using them to replace more caloric eating. In the long run, though, that effect fades.
  • FitDay - Free Weight Loss and Diet Manager (diet, food, health)
    • A website that helps you keep track of what you eat and how you burn it off. No more trips to Burger King, eh?
  • Find Your Spot (fun, geography, quiz)
    • Take the quiz and discover: "…the Best Cities & Small Towns for You!" (at least, according to them)
  • Dress Steve Jobs (fun, flash, comics)
    • Sick oif Steve Job's wardrobe (hmmm, his mode of dress is very familiar). Now you can dress him yourself! "I'm ready for my keynote!"
  • Don't Call Me Crazy On The 4th Of July (video, history, society)
    • Maybe some crazy people didn't get there on their own…
  • b z z z p e e k (audio, language)
    • Beep, cluck, moo and meow in a number of foreign languages.
  • Rapid afterimage (animation, illusion, psychology, weird)
    • Great visual illusion involving your eye's afterimage behavior.
  • Yahoo! Next (computers, tech)
    • This is Yahoo's showcase of what they're brewing over at their labs. Looks like one area they've got that Google doesn't is music. Geek out!
  • AAA Fuel Price Finder (shopping, auto, gas)
    • A search engine for cheap gas prices. Run by AAA and based on credit card transactions, this should help you save a few bucks on gas every week.
  • The Weirdest Book I Ever Got: Cartoon History of Noah's Ark (wtf, religion)
    • Did you know that Noah's flood killed the dinosaurs? See, learning can make you stupid.

Did you know that Noah's flood killed the dinosaurs?

Well duh. If he was going to carry the dinosaurs too the ark would have needed to be too big.

Ok, the grammar in that last post was atrocious. That's what I get for not reading/editing before hitting post.

Love the Tom Cruise interview. :)

I'm the poster child for "Poster's Remorse."

Good shotgun this week. Apparently my ideal home is Little Rock, AR. Blech!

So, the secret to making $1 million is to come up with ideas and work hard at them. Who knew?

HAH! The Tom Cruise inerview is wonderful! I've shared it with a friend at work and told her that the next big thing for pharma is vitamins F and G.

Whoever came up with that test REALLY likes AR. I think three different location came up for me (including Little Rock). Maybe we should all sell our houses and move down there. We'd probably have enough from the proceeds to buy really nice places outright.

The spots of Find Your Spot are provided by the spots themselves. That is, if New Bedford isn't solicited by them to be a spot and doesn't sign up to be a spot, it's not going to turn up on your list of spots, no matter how much you claim to love snow, crime, and poverty.

If ANY of those nice spots had a decent job market, I would go there in a heartbeat. Alas.

Let's start a suburb of Little Rock. We'll buy up a bunch of land, get some nice places, and hand pick who gets to live there. :) They want to call us elite? Fine. We'll BE elite.

In my long and exhaustive list (4 pages), San Fran came up. I could live there, and there are plenty of businesses.

I like Brian's idea. Our own community. We could call it Eliteville, but in Latin, so only those in the know would get it.

Whose Latin is good enough to translate? Anyone? Beuller?

Posted by: PattiM. at June 10, 2005 2:21 PM

Heh, if we don't know how to say Eliteville in Latin, maybe we don't deserve to live there.

All that means is we have to learn to say it. That's part of what makes us elite. We strive to be better than everyone else, and we're proud of that. :)

FYI, bzzzpeek was featured on NPR's "Weekend Edition Saturday," which proves you are on the cutting edge, my friend.
