Obese folk more at risk than non-obese folk during a car accident. I had better start watching my pork intake.

Congratulations to pickset F%!@ing Mathis submitted by Vince of Charlottesville, VA. Regardless of the outcome of Monday night's basketball game, Vince will win the Second Annual Iracane.com NCAA Tournament Pickem and all its respective awards and honors. ($5 Amazon.com gift certificate) Meanwhile, I will be rooting for underdog Indiana, because Bobby Knight will not be.

What is the 32nd most commonly used word in the English language. No, that's not a question.

Elderly woman gets trapped in newspaper vending machine outside local Wal-Mart...news doesn't get any better than that!
Gross! Here's a contest I would never win: the Messiest Apartment Contest at apartments.com. Some of those shots are reminiscent of 504 Brandon Avenue, though.

Burger King, the fast food restaurant for the insane, has introduced a veggie burger in many of its United States franchises. I don't understand how said veggie burger can contain a whole 10 grams of fat. What's going on in there? Subway sells 7 (disgusting) sandwiches with 6 grams of fat or less, including turkey and ham subs. Shouldn't a veggie burger contain less fat that a ham sub? Gross. Meet me at Wendy's.
People just don't crash into buildings as much as they used to. But people keep on stealing cars, even stealing cars that have other people's artificial limbs in them. "Yes, officer, my car AND my arm were stolen."

Time for an update of the Second Annual Iracane.com NCAA Tournament Pickem...looks like I'm in first place with 47 points with Vince close behind at 46. Both Vince and I have all of our final four picks alive; the biggest difference between our brackets is that he has Maryland beating Duke in the final while I have the opposite. Of course, anything can happen...except Dave winning. Check out all that red!

Cool! John Ivers built his own roller coaster in his backyard.

I no longer have any interest in the Second Annual Iracane.com NCAA Tournament Pickem! My brackets are a disaster. Damn USC and Gonzaga! The good news - 'Nova won their NIT game and Rutgers got beat at the RAC!
GONE-zaga! My poor sister lost one team from her championship game from her bracket and is on the verge of losing a second Final Four team. I guess she won't be winning the $5.
Last chance to enter the Second Annual Iracane.com NCAA Tournament Pickem! Group ID #1171, password: hoops! I think Carl should be disqualified for having two entries!

Ah, good old banner_stadium.jpg. I wanted to set up a new banner for this site, but I felt that falling back on an old classic would be okay since my imagination and creativity recently ground to a halt. I've taken few pictures recently, and the ones that I have taken have been so dry and devoid of personality. I tried to take a picture of this woman in NYC with an extraordinarily large bouffant hairdo, but she was moving too fast. I could have made one helluva banner out of that.

Truck catches on fire, starts up, rolls towards house, and ignites the house all on its own, causing $40,000 worth of damage to the house. Does this sound fishy to anyone else?

Today, a girl drove by me and I wanted to "check her out" so I turned slightly to my left to glance towards my side mirror...then, I realized that I had no side mirror because I was not in my car, I was walking. How awkward.
Stinkfactor.com, home of the Cinnamon Challenge and the Horseradish Challenge, has been completely revamped, including a brand new Tabasco Challenge. Enjoy!

I love stories where cars crash into restaurants or homes or any other type of building, but only when people don't get killed. There's just something about the idea of sitting behind the wheel and careening through an IHOP window that sounds kind of neat.

CRAP! Just as I had switched my Sunday morning cartoon allegiances from The McLaughlin Group to This Week in Washington, Cokie Roberts decides to leave. Cokie is both provocative and well-spoken: two traits that rarely coexist on television news. Allegedly, (yes I *am* a lawyer) ABC is scheming to replace Cokie and co-host Sam Donaldson with wunderkind George Stephanopoulos and frequent Imus guest Claire Shipman. I guess every broadcast network wants a pseudo-provocative Tim Russert type who kowtows to blathering quotes and baseless opinions. Note: I do not bemoan the pending loss of Nightline...I have never seen that show. Of course, I had never eaten trout until tonight. There's always a first for everything.

OUCH! Watch out for those crossing gates at bridges and the like! One such gate killed a 63-year-old man in Daytona Beach this past weekend.
