“Hell’s Angels: The Strange and Terrible Saga of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs (1966)”
So earlier this morning one of my friends forwarded this link to me just after I posted Times Are Hard. But Things Are Looking Up. The link was from The Huffington Post By Ross Luippold, the post was about Bill Watterson’s Uplifting Advice To College Grads, Illustrated In ‘Calvin & Hobbes’ Style. Personally this hit way to close to home for me. So close that about half way through the comic my eyes started to water up. It seems everyday I hear what other people’s ideas are about my life and what I should be doing or my favorite line,”looks like you missed you’re calling”. When looking at this comic I can’t help but see myself and my family. I’ve always love Watterson’s work and with this little comic he has changed my out look on life. Thank you Bill Watterson and thank you Samantha Jayne for sending me this.
Oh how I love Japan!!
The feeling of wanting to pick one’s nose is something that every boy and girl can relate to. Unfortunately, society frowns upon people who blatantly go on a booger hunt. In Japan, even blowing your nose in public can be considered bad manners! We’re not sure how sniffling up your snot for hours is better than dispelling it all in one go, but that’s beside the point.
Bandai has a brand new product to ease that natural urge. When your nose has an itch that you’re just twitching to pick, here’s a prosthetic nose that you can pick even in public!

No.. Green Arrow he is NOT HAHAHA! Really? At what point does that even sound like a good idea?
The Green Arrow he’s not, but David Wayne Jordan at least deserves credit for his creative attempt at allegedly trying to deliver marijuana to a Washington State jail inmate. His method? Tying a few grams of the plant to a hunting arrow and shooting it with a bow toward a mesh screen at the Whatcom County Jail.
But he still failed to hit the target, which led to his arrest on Tuesday on charges of trying to introduce contraband into a corrections facility.
Police say Jordan, 36, took the weed and shot it toward the screen which was part of a window to the jail’s recreation area, the Bellingham Herald reported. The screen’s openings would have easily accommodated the arrow and the intended recipient would have quickly gotten the package, said Whatcom County Sheriff Bill Elfo. But Jordan turned out to be a poor marijuana marksman and the arrow…

It started with an idea: How can we get our drinks more quickly at the bar? Dreamed up at 2 a.m. in Coloft, a Los Angeles coworking space, future founder Mike Townsend doodled up an iPad application mockup that he called Apptini to answer the question.
Apptini, a portmanteau of application and martini, wouldn’t last, but the product later known as Flowtab had been born. Its life became a startup story that most don’t tell: A company that didn’t make it. Technology as an industry worships success — the bigger and splashier the better. What’s often left unsaid or swept under the rug or buried under the guise of a micro acqui-hire is failure. And lots of it.
Young companies die by the hundreds in Silicon Valley, but you would hardly know it by reading your local blog. Flowtab, now a shuttered product, did something following its demise that I’ve…
