Dr. Drew Pinksy - Media Whore

I don't know what kind of "doctor" that Drew Pinsky is, but I am amazed at his lack of ethics. He will say anything to garner attention. The thing that irritates me the most, is that he will make a snap diagnosis of a celebrity like Charlie Sheen or a public figure like Casey Anthony who is on trial for killing her daughter, without even seeing the "patient". In other words, he does his consultation and makes his diagnosis by watching TV.

Now there has got to be something wrong with this. The latest is that when the defense attorney tried to introduced allegations that Casey Anthony was sexually molested by her father (to save her from the death penalty), he said on TV "it certainly sounds like she was". My goodness. If I were the father, I would sue for millions of dollars.

Oftentimes psychiatrists will tell you that it takes multiple, multiple sessions to probe the personalities to discover the pathology of mental illness. Drew Pinsky can do without even seeing the patient. He is a quack, a charlatan and a media whore. I don't know what his ratings are, but he shouldn't be on TV.

Casey Anthony Trial

Casey Anthony is on trial for her life, for murdering her two year old daughter and disposing of the remains. I was checking out the CNN website and they said "Watch Live" so I clicked on it. Just before the court resumed from a recess, the camera was on Casey. She appeared to be laughing behind her hand as she was talking to her attorney.

I can tell you one thing. If I was fighting for my life in front of a jury, I wouldn't find much to laugh about.

Dog For Adoption

My house was broken into last night by two robbers who locked me in the bathroom, and proceeded to steal all they could carry. My watchdog, "Killer", did not alert me, and for this reason I am giving him away. I no longer want a dog - I´m installing an electric fence and detection devices with alarms. They´re cheaper and more reliable. For those interested in adopting the dog please send an e-mail.

A photo of "Killer" is attached below.

He does have a few issues but with help he should be ok!!

The Evolution of Maria Shriver Schwarzenegger

I am amazed at the evolution of Arnold Schwarzenegger's wife Maria Shriver through the years.

First look at her wedding video:
She is the sweetest young thing with chubby cheeks, and a gorgeous looking girl.

After a couple of years of marriage, she had lost her baby fat on her cheeks:

Now she is a glamorous, gorgeous sexy woman.

And then after twenty five years of marriage to Arnold, we have this:

After their separation, the evolution is complete:

The evolution of Maria Shriver has come a long way.

Exclusive Photo - Arnold Schwarzenegger's Love Child

I hate to pander to the lowest common denominator, but I had to post this world exclusive picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger's love child. Enquiring minds gotta know.

Coincidence -- I think not ....

This picture arrived in my email box and I just had to post it. It was entitled: Coincidence, I think not.....
When I first saw it, I was wryly amused looking at the top picture. However the bottom series sealed the deal for me. I think that there was a bit of Disney plagiarism going on.

Donald Trump without the Comb-Over

Did you ever wonder what blowhard buffoon Donald Trump looks like without the comb-over. Essentially he grows his hair really long and pastes it down over his bald pate.

Man, you would think that with all of his money, he would have a hair transplant or something, instead of a stupid toupee or a comb-over. There is no telling what vanity drives a man to do -- especially a man as truth-challenged as Donald Trump.

Usually the Donald frequents places where his mouthy spoutings are taken seriously because of his perceived wealth and power. However, it was good to see him get a good comeuppance at the White House Correspondents dinner. He just stared straight ahead not believing that every one in the world doesn't buy into whatever drips out of his mouth.

It was one of the first times that the Donald got a taste of reality without him interpreting it.

The 20 Most Common Words In The English Language

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the following are the 20 most common words in the English language in descending order.


It is no surprise that the word "the" is the most common word in the English language. It appears four times in the previous sentence.

Precision Flying

A British air crew were in the back of a Hercules C-130 transport to photograph a fighter pilot in mid flight.

A British fighter jet pilot approaches with his magnificent flying machine.

He is asked if he can get a bit closer.

He obliges.

In a show of precision flying, he asks "Is this close enough?"

A truly amazing feat, and one that someone should be court-martialled for because of the risks.

Kodak Easyshare Camera won't turn on

One of the handy-dandy littlest cameras that I have had, was the Kodak Easyshare. I have had both the 5 mega-pixel and 6 mega-pixel versions.

First and foremost, I am amazed at the quality of the camera and quality of the lenses. I remember the days when Kodak turned out consumerism junk. The Instamatic took blurry pictures. Then they had the 110 camera that had no resolution at all. Plastic lenses were the order of the day.

It was explained to me that when digital cameras came about, Kodak had an epiphany. They had to turn out a quality camera to compete. And as far as I am concerned they did.

My 6 mega-pixel camera was ruined when I took a tumble into a snow bank. The camera was buried and it was warm, so the snow melted, and water got into the circuits, destroying the totally electronic camera.

The one pictured above is on its last legs. It stopped working (presumably after it took a bump). When turned on, the red light on the back near the peephole blinks red and it appears as if the battery is dead. Changing the batteries doesn't help. It never came with a charger because I didn't buy the dock.

I read online where if you pressed the "up" arrow on the back and turned the knob on the top to the auto position (on), then you could get the camera to start. I tried this, and the camera did open and immediately closed again. I experimented by pushing the OK button, the up button and turning it on. It turned on, and immediately turned off again. I didn't do anything but kept pressure on the buttons. It turn on and off.

I set the camera down, and a few minutes later, I turned it on. It worked perfectly. I took a few pictures, and then it went flaky again.

There is something wrong with the firmware or hardware of the camera. It does flake out, but it still takes pictures when it works by fiddling with it. After three or four pictures, it flakes out again.

I can't really complain. This camera is over three years old and has taken thousands of pictures including close-ups. For a cheap snapshot camera, I will probably replace it with the same thing.

Anti-Obama Illiterates

I can't for the life of me, figure out why many Americans disrespect their own president. I am convinced that it is Racism.

The election of Obama has forced many to re-assess their views of Blacks. Obama is an intelligent, educated, high achiever and this doesn't jive with the racist point of view.

The birther issue over Obama's birth certificate was overt racism. And now that Obama has eliminated Osama bin Laden as a threat to America, those same Americans are saying that it was a hoax. They are known as deathers.

These are signs that were posted along the roadway 88 miles south of Seattle and were widely distributed on the internet.
In the sign above, bogeyman is spelled wrong.

In the sign above, comrades is spelled wrong.

In the sign above, tax is spelled wrong.

Obviously, these signs are the signs of an illiterate racist.

The thing that blows me away, is that Republicans have support of two groups --the rich business men who take care of themselves, and the poor, and poorly educated rurals who support them. The poor, uneducated don't realize that they are being exploited by the Republicans.

I think that the United States has come a long way in electing Obama as president. However it still has a long way to go.

Peeing on the Bathroom Floor

Picture this. You are in a 10th floor apartment. You have to go to the bathroom. This is how the bathroom floor is painted.

I think that I would be afraid to step onto the floor, and I think that as the owner of this bathroom floor, a lot of people would pee on it -- involuntarily.

World Exclusive -- Photo of Osama bin Laden's Body in Pakistan

This is a world exclusive. I have just gotten access to a picture of Osama bin Laden's body in Pakistan before it was exfiltrated by American Navy Seals.

As you can see, there was some damage after the head shot, but it was effective.

Actually, this is what Pakistan TV is showing for Osama bin Laden's body:

Reuters is calling this picture a fake.
