Goats R Us

Goats R Us

Jul 06

Officials at San Francisco International Airport hired a herd of part-time employees to toil on the west side of the property and engage in an unusual — but environmentally friendly — form of fire prevention. For two weeks in June, Mr. Fuzzy, Cookie, Mable, Alice and nearly 400 other goats chomped on the brush in a remote corner of the airport. The area needs to be cleared each spring to protect nearby homes from potential fires. But machines or humans can’t be used because two endangered species — the San Francisco garter snake and the California red-legged frog — live there…

Piers Morgan Gets Sick After Flu Shot

Jan 24

This post includes two videos: In the first video, Piers receives a flu shot from Dr. Ox during which Piers says that this is his “first ever flu shot” and Doctor Oz declares that you cannot get the flu from the flu shot. In the second video, Piers, struggling with flu-like symptoms, talks with country western singer Dwight Yoakam. Piers asks Dwight if he has any advice about how to deal with a sore throat. Dwight answers “don’t get a flu shot”. Piers jokingly responds “we’re both doing the math; we both saw him (Dr. Oz) put that thing in my arm and within ten days, I’ve been struck down…”

What If Jesus Had Been A Republican?

What If Jesus Had Been A Republican?

Aug 28

1. When Jesus returned to Capernaum after some days, it was reported that he was at his home. 2. So many gathered around that there was no longer room for them, not even in front of the door; and he was speaking the word to them. 3. Then some people came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. 4. And when they could not bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him; and after having dug through it, they let down the mat on which the paralytic lay. 5. When Jesus saw this he grew angry, “Why did you wreck my roof? Do you have any idea how much that cost to install? Do you know how many tables and chairs I had to make in my carpentry shop to pay for that roof? The reeds alone cost five talents. I had them carted in from Bethany.” 6. The disciples had never seen Jesus so angry about his possessions…

The Difference Between Men & Women

The Difference Between Men & Women

Jun 18

Let’s say a guy named Roger is attracted to a woman named Elaine. He asks her out to a movie; she accepts; they have a pretty good time. A few nights later he asks her out to dinner, and again they enjoy themselves. They continue to see each other regularly, and after a while neither one of them is seeing anybody else. And then, one evening when they’re driving home, a thought occurs to Elaine, and, without really thinking, she says it aloud: “Do you realise that, as of tonight, we’ve been seeing each other for exactly six months?” And then there is silence in the car. To Elaine, it seems like a very loud silence….

Angry Father’s Video About Facebooking Daughter Goes Viral (Updated)

Mar 08

You’ve probably heard of Tommy Jordan, the upset father who posted a YouTube video that dealt with an angry letter his 15-year old daughter had posted on Facebook. To date, the father’s video has been viewed 29,741,167 times — and generated a tidal wave of reactions, mostly positive, in support of the father. There has been so much interest that Matt Lauer of The Today Show contacted Dr. Phil via satellite to get Dr. Phil’s response to the YouTube video. And that produced a video response from Tommy, and a website that addressed the concerns voiced by Dr. Phil. For those of you who might be interested, here’s where you can find out al about it…

Japanese Buddhists Use Bar For Community Outreach

This city is said to be honeycombed with 10,000 nightspots, most no bigger than an American living room. So to Japanese, it makes perfect sense that Buddhist monks would run their own themed bars, complete with incense, mandala sacred posters and religious altars. As for the monks themselves, they say that tending bar is, ironically, one of the best ways of connecting with their roots…

A Chat With Apple’s Siri

A Chat With Apple’s Siri

Dec 21

It isn’t easy to have a lengthy conversation with Siri that is entirely unproductive, but we rose to the occasion. Although still in beta, Siri has already proven to be a very able assistant. She’s so capable, in fact, that it’s common for those who try her to quickly turn from obvious commands to pointless questions in an effort to stump her, only to find that she has a lot more to say than many would have guessed (as evidenced by the current crop of blogs that catalogue Siri’s most comical comebacks). To get a good sense of the “personal” side of this personal assistant, Mac|Life editor-in-chief Chris Slate sat down with Siri for an enlightening one-on-one interview. Every question and answer that follows is written exactly as it was spoken, without so much as an “um” having been altered…
