The Curse

July 27 (Bloomberg) -- Boston has its infamous curses, including one involving the legendary baseball slugger Babe Ruth. Senator John Kerry may wonder if he'll join the list.

No Democrat in the last 136 years has won the presidency when nominated in his home state. For Kerry, the proximity couldn't be closer. His Beacon Hill townhouse is less than a mile from the Boston arena where he'll accept the Democratic presidential nomination on Thursday.

Chocolate is a Vegetable

Chocolate is derived from cocoa beans. Bean = vegetable. Sugar is derived from either sugar cane or sugar BEETS. Both of them are plants, in the vegetable category.

Thus, chocolate is a vegetable.

To go one step further, chocolate candy bars also contain milk, which is dairy.

So candy bars are a health food.

Chocolate-covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.

CSI Hardball


NEW YORK (AP) - Actors George Eads and Jorja Fox will both be back on the job next week at "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" after learning a lesson in hardball network politics.

Eads reached an agreement Friday to return to television's most popular drama after he was fired for skipping work in what CBS believed was a contract dispute, CBS entertainment spokesman Chris Ender said.

LegoDoug says Balanced Political Humor? on 7/27/2004
I didn't think it was possible! Great fun that shoots at both sides. Hmmm. Maybe they were Libertarians or Greens.

Blessed

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the million who won't survive the week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture or the pangs of starvation, you are ahead of 20 million people around the world.

If you attend a church meeting without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death, you are more blessed than almost three billion people in the world.

If you have food in your refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world.

If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy.

If your parents are still married and alive, you are very rare, especially in the United States.

If you hold up your head with a smile on your face and are truly thankful, you are blessed because the majority can, but most do not.

If you can hold someone's hand, hug them or even touch them on the shoulder, you are blessed because you can offer God's healing touch.

If you can read this message, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world that cannot read anything at all.

You are so blessed in ways you may never even know.

Cheap Date?

On July 27th McDonald's is celebrating the 25th aniversary of the Happy Meal. To celebrate, Mickey D's will be selling Happy Meals for only 99 cents. This could add new meaning to "cheap date."

Gimme gimme

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Two stars of the CBS hit television series "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" were fired for breach of contract, KCBS-TV and Variety reported Thursday.

Actors Jorja Fox and George Eads, who play investigators Sara Sidle and Nick Stokes, were fired after asking for more money to stay on the show, according to the reports.

Identity Theft

The penalties for Identity Theft got a lot stiffer today. Judges and Prosecutors now can really throw the book at individuals charged and convicted of Identity Theft. This is a win for consumers. Hopefully the banking industry will get on board and help us fight these criminals. [Guardian Unlimited]

Last Comic Standing

Ok.. hello NBC why can't we actually see the comics doing comedy in Last Comic Standing? The show is an hour long, take out the commercials, and all the dumb stories and we get left with 5 minutes of comedy.

Here is an idea, at the very least, let the two schmoes that are going head to had have a 15 minute set. Let us see what they can actually do!

Citizenship Test

As a US Citizen (if you are...) how much do you actually know about your own country? Try the US Citizenship Test.

Is that a 4 x 4?

Why do people who own SUVs with tires the size of hippos and a ground clearance of a gazillion drive about 0.0000002mph over speed bumps?

huh? why?

Did you Know?

There are ten human body parts that are only three letters long: eye, hip, arm, leg, ear, toe, jaw, rib, lip, gum.

Underarm persperation contains more than 100 chemicals, so do many popular breakfast cereals
