Magnum is Still Relevant

I recently purchased and subscribed to Tivo - I immediately sign-up for a season pass for Magnum. Right now, I am multitasking – work and Magnum.

I am watching the one where Magnum is following some dame to see if she’s cheating on her husband…Thomas quickly finds out that the woman is cheating on her husband…but with Rick, Thomas' buddy and local club owner.

Rick finds out that Thomas was on the case and believes that Thomas ratted him out after the broad breaks off the affair. Rick confronts Thomas at the club with a right cross (upper cut, really, because Rick is so damn short EVERY punch he throws is an upper cut). Thomas has a cement jaw and barely moves his head…Rick kicks him out of the club for good!!!!

The amazing part of this whole episode is that this is but a subplot for the real focus of the story – Thomas’ investigation of a corporate spy inside a laser manufacturer in down town Honolulu. (Believable? YES!)

But even more amazing is that the whole time, Thomas is training Higgens so that he can lose some weight for an impending date with his ex-fiance.

Now, Thomas is speaking with his buddy in the Navy, Mack, about something important…he’s offering him $20/hour (not bad pay for 1984) for some help with some computer security (Foretran?) at the laser company.

The mysteries continue....

Don't Buy "Cocaine"

I read this was written by Mike from the Just Saying dept....

When Selling Cocaine, Putting Up An Online Ad Not Recommended - We all know just how easy it is these days to put up an advertisement for just about anything these days, thanks to things like Google's AdWords program, but that doesn't mean you should advertise absolutely anything. At least that's the lesson one drug dealer learned when he put up an online ad offering to sell cocaine.

The ad, which included the dealer's phone number, was quickly spotted by police, who called him, and proceeded to arrest him after buying some cocaine from him. Unfortunately, the article doesn't say where he was advertising and who allowed him to put up an ad for cocaine, as that would be quite interesting as well.

NPD (National Pie Day) is TODAY!

Go out there and celebrate! Get yourself some pie - it's National Pie Day!

My friend Nick told me this today...
One billion seconds equals 31.7 years. But one trillion seconds equals 31,700 years.....

I saw Blue, and he was glorious!

A sad day for all of us. "Blue" dead at 86.

Dust in the wind.
