The final airing of this show attracted the largest audience for a non-sports basic cable program in the US this year.
Remember when this cat was preachin 'bout Fear of a Black Planet? Flav, I want a ticket.

Call your R.A.

Police just put out an A.P.B. on this man- the Gentleman Strangler. If you see this man lurking around your dorm do not try to apprehend. Just play him at MLB 2006. Throw him hard sliders away, while jacking weak offerings over the left field wall. He will eventually go away.


I think I may have found an error in the Random House Dictionary. While reading '1215 The Year of the Magna Carta' I came upon a word I wasn't exactly sure of, "excoriate". I looked this up on and was given a Random House Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[ik-skawr-ee-eyt, -skohr-] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
–verb (used with object), -at‧ed, -at‧ing.
to denounce or berate severely; flay verbally: He was excoriated for his mistakes.
to strip off or remove the skin from: Her palms were excoriated by the hard labor of shoveling.

This is all fine and dandy except the origin is cited as being from 1375-1425. The source in the book is Tristan, which was written in the mid 1100's.
I tried writing RandomHouse on their website to account for this discrepency of dates, but could not find an email address that I could send mail to.
One of the slowest books I've ever read, the exact name of which escapes me, but the subject
being the creation of the Oxford English Dictionary describes the process of creating what is considered the foremost dictionary. The dictionary took like 80 years to complete. It contains either 400,000 or 600,000 words. (Why is it that when estimating we always estimate by evens or odds?) Anyway, many people basically sent in definitions to the dictionary on words they knew. This was back before computers and shit. They basically had a bunch of shelfs with buttfuckin tons of words shuffled in there. It was an arduous process, but created a good dictionary.

And he smote the beast

The two gentleman met on the field of battle for the hand of the lovely maiden.
Apparantly foosball has been around since at least the 1890's when patents were filed. Wikipedia also reported that some expert players have developed a style whereby holding the defensemen with pinky and thumb and holding the offense with elbow and wrist they can control all players at once.
This table was found when I was at the punk rock bar next door and had to take a dump. They just had one of these pits in the floor found in some Korean bathrooms. I don't even know what to do with those. Do I take my pants off? How do I keep my balance?
As it turned out none of this mattered as the maiden was but a chalk drawing on a concrete wall. Which possibly wouldn't have stopped this man 'Man accused of having relations with dog'.
I've heard of fucking some dogs, but come on is your old lady that bad? Apparantly this is a new law enacted after that dude got fucked to death by that horse. Which, by the way, have you seen Jackass 2? There's a scene in there like this. I can't believe those dudes are all still alive.
Go Tigers!

Whirlwind Tour

I feel like I have seen most of Korea the past week. With the family crew in town we have seen: Insa-dong- a traditional styled shopping area, the Chongychong river-a newly built river through the heart of town, Gyeongbukung Palace- the old King's palace, Deongsukung Palace, Cheongsukdeong Palace- the King's vacation home, and Jongmyo- the Royal Tombs: all this in Seoul. We took a Han River cruise the next day. The day after we took a boat tour to Wido Island- a botanical garden, a couple of ocean side cliffs, the Bosung tea gardens, Dangmyang bamboo forrest, and probably 10 other places I'm forgetting.
