A Random Thought

I kind of suspect that this cartoon is going up in restaurant kitchens all over the country.

Just a guess.

I've been on the mailing list for for some time.

But this entry is one of the classics.

FedEx trucker crashes under the influence of pork-rinds

Actually, the title pretty much says it all.

BLAINE, Wash. -- A Washington State Patrol trooper says the driver of a FedEx tractor-trailer rig choked on some spicy pork rinds, lost control of his truck on an interstate and jackknifed it before coming to a stop in a muddy ditch.

Trooper Keith Leary says Edward Sutherland was driving his rig southbound from Blaine near the Canadian border Monday when he began choking and veered from the southbound lanes across the median into northbound lanes of Interstate 5.

See Pork Rinds Lead To Blaine Crash for a little more information, or if you don't believe me.

Now This is a FLASHLIGHT

A long time ago, I got myself onto a mailing list from something called ThinkGeek. I'm not sure I've ever actually bought anything from them, but I've spent many an otherwise useful hour browsing around their website. If you haven't encountered them before, let me just say that most of their products are either computer geeky, or science fictiony, or just plain weird. Some, like this Star Trek lamp with a revolving shade, are all of them together.

Anyway, one of the things I just wondered across there was a industrial strength flashlight. This flashlight is rechargeable, but outputs so much light the run time is only about fifteen minutes. This flashlight uses a 100 watt halogen bulb as a light source, and it gets so hot you can cook an egg on the lens.

Don't believe me? Watch this.

Now this is a flashlight.
