Whiskey...now in can form
A Panama-based company believes outdoor drinkers would prefer to crack open a tin rather than lug round a bottle of whisky

Panama-based Scottish Spirits thinks that something is missing from the process
of enjoying fine blended whiskey...tin cans.  SS (perhaps not the best acryonym to
use) - which has an office in Glasgow - is running a test market on their ground-
breaking "whisk(e)y in a can" in the Caribbean and South America.  Each can contains
six shots worth of whiskey and offers the first time that straight whiskey has been sold
in a can (even though said can looks like it went through the Miller High Life design team).

The Scotch Whisky Association (a fearful bunch) has gone forward to propose a ban for 

breaching international labelling rules.  So a heads up before you go blindly chugging an
unknown can of beer in the future...you may be happy.

Steve Jobs Takes a Leave of Absence... Again.


-Wonderful timing on their part to execute the announcement of Jobs leaving when the stock market
  was closed due to black day. Should dip the stock a bit but people will buy up.
-Some Thoughts on Tim Cook stepping in. Cook running the day-to-day, that likely
  means that Apple will continue to hum along largely unchanged.
-We wish Steve a speedy recovery.

Kato and the Fat Man SUCKS ASS!!!!!!!!!!!

http://www.onlinemovieshut.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/the-green-hornet-poster.jpg

Don't see it ever. 34M$ this weekend for a 125M$ movie. BOMB. Huge busto.
it's stupid, insulting to the original charaters. The car and Kato are the only two
reasons to see this film. Kick a bum, Kiss a frog or whipe your ass with sand paper.
Those 3 things are more enjoyable then that moive,
I hope this is the end of Seth Rogen. (im sure it's not)

First Image of Andrew Garfield in

Costume as SPIDER-MAN

he good folks over at Collider did what any good geek would do and they ran over the
picture with a fine toothed comb, looking for goodies. Well, it is a good thing that they
did because it looks like they have uncovered something pretty big.

From the looks of the costume, it seems as though movie Spider-Man will be going

back to using web shooters instead of being able to shoot his web goo organically.

1. “It’s going to be a night of partying and heaving drinking — or as Charlie Sheen calls it: breakfast.”
 
2. “Everything this year was three-dimensional, except the characters in The Tourist. I feel bad about that joke.
I’m jumping on the bandwagon, because I haven’t even seen that movie. Who has?”
 
3. “Do you want to go see Cher? No. Why not? Because it’s not 1975.”
 
4. “There were a lot of big films that didn’t get nominated. Nothing for Sex and the City 2. I was sure the Golden
Globes for special effects would go to the team that airbrushed that poster.”
 
5. “Also not nominated I Love You Phillip Morris. Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor. Two heterosexual actors
pretending to be gay. So, the complete opposite of some famous Scientologist… My lawyers helped me with the wording of that joke.”
 
6. “Our first presenter is beautiful, talented, and Jewish apparently. Mel Gibson told me that. He’s obsessed.
Please welcome Scarlett Johansson.”
 
7. “Who are our next presenter from such films as Hudson Hawk, Look Who’s Talking, Mercury Rising,
Color of Night, The Fifth Element, Hart’s War. Please welcome Aston Kutcher’s dad, Bruce Willis.”
 
8. “Next up, Eva Longoria has the daunting task of introducing the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press.
That’s nothing, I had just had to help him off the toilet and pop his teeth in.”
 
9. “I love this next presenter; he’s so cool. He’s the star of Iron Man. Two Girls and a Guy. Wonderboys.
 I’m sorry are these porn films? Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Bowfinger? Up the Academy. Come on! He has done all
of those films, but many of you in this room probably know him best from such facilities as The Betty Ford Clinic
and the Los Angeles County Jail. Robert Downey, Jr.”
 
10. “And thank you to God. For making me an atheist.”


11. Not in the show. Ricky Dressed as Hitler. "Too soon? oh Wrong crowd. Thats the last time i borrow a costume from Mel Gibson."

Minnesota Planetarium Society's
Zodiac Claim Shot Down


Our zodiac sign may be safe after all, no thanks to the Minnesota Planetarium Society.
Did you wake up a Scorpio yesterday and check your horoscope in the local newspaper?
Breathe easy. You're not a Libra today. Its members had horoscope fans frothing over a
claim that everything we knew about the zodiac was off by a month. But astrologists say that,
at least in Western society, there's no need to adjust your tattoos and your pick-up lines.
Nothing's changed. And don't panic about having to figure out what being a (OFF-ee-YOO-kuss) Ophiuchus is all about.
The society was referring to the sidereal zodiac used by the ancient Babylonians -- and many
non-Westerners. Western astrology, on the other hand, is based on what's known as the tropical zodiac;
has been since the second century when it was adopted by  (Tah-Lo-Mi) Ptolemy. The tropical zodiac isn't tied to
the constellations. It moves with the seasons. It's flexible. 
Plus the last time we checked astrology was still bullshit.

Fox shoots man




– Thu Jan 13, 2:50 pm ET

MOSCOW (Reuters) –

A wounded fox shot its would be killer in Belarus

by pulling the trigger on the hunter's gun as the pair scuffled

after the man tried to finish the animal off with the butt of the rifle,

media said Thursday.

 

The unnamed hunter,

who had approached the fox after wounding it from a distance,

was in hospital with a leg wound, while the fox made its escape, media said,

citing prosecutors from the Grodno region.

 

"The animal fiercely resisted and in the struggle accidentally pulled the trigger with its paw,"

one prosecutor was quoted as saying.

Fox-hunting is popular in the picturesque farming region of northwestern Belarus which borders Poland.





Wis. woman finds $280K of drugs in vacuum










– Sat Jan 15, 3:50 pm ET

GREEN BAY, Wis. – A Green Bay, Wis.,

woman opened a Christmas present from her children to find a refurbished vacuum

- and a load of drugs.

 

Authorities say the woman found 2 pounds of crystal methamphetamine and

2.2 pounds of cocaine shrink wrapped inside the box.

Sheriff's officials estimate the drugs' street value at about $280,000.

 

Lt. David Poteat (poh-TEET) tells the Green Bay Press-Gazette

that a smuggler likely put the drugs in the box before it was shipped

from the Juarez, Mexico, area, where it had been reconditioned.

 

Poteat says no one noticed anything,

including the department store where it was purchased, until the woman opened the package.

Sheriff's officials say the store is cooperating with the investigation.







Once, twice, 3 times a tasing






WBBH-TV updated 1/17/2011 6:15:42 PM ET

A naked man yelling he was "king of the world"

ran into traffic on Big Coppitt Key early Sunday morning.


Keysnet.com reports 43-year-old Richard Gervasi of Phoenixville, Pa.,

was running into traffic on US-1 around 1:30 a.m.

Deputies arrived and found Gervasi and two of his friends,

one of whom Gervasi attacked when the sheriff's office pulled up.

 

He then allegedly ran at Deputy Danielle Malone, who tased him.

But Gervasi pulled the Taser prongs out, so the deputy tased him again

— but that didn't end the confrontation.


As another deputy arrived, Gervasi got up again and started walking toward his friends.

So deputies tased him a third time and then handcuffed him.

As he was being taken into custody, he said he was "made of steel."

Gervasi was charged with disturbing the peace and resisting arrest.

Investigators say he had been drinking and took LSD before the incident.
