I’m reading– December 7th through December 12th

‘Vocal Fry’ Creeping Into U.S. Speech – Combine this with the growing tendency to make declarative statements sound like questions, starting every sentence with the word “so” and inserting “like” every few words as if it’s a punctuation mark and you start getting really annoying.

Can UT Afford Not To Spend the Money for an SEC Contending Coach? – They are. They’re just paying him to stay home. #fulmer

Woman caught making meth inside S. Tulsa Walmart – HT @joelance “I was too broke to buy the products and take them outside to manufacture the meth.” That’s a sound defense if I’ve ever heard one.

And to think, people in Atlanta worry about small things like needles in the clothes at their WalMart.

Walt Disney’s Five Greatest Innovations – Disney believer right here.

Topless Photos and Tobacco Spit – Man I Miss East Tennessee

It’s days like today when I reminisce about all the times I visited the Wal-Mart Super Center in Alcoa. Oh the things I saw and heard..

“Upon getting the cell phone to ‘unlock’ and work properly, the Wal-Mart employee saw a picture on the phone of a female subject that was topless and whose breasts were exposed,” the report said.

At that point, the man who brought the cell phone into the store became “furious about anyone seeing his ‘private pictures’ and demanded that the cell phone be destroyed.”

The employee complied with the man’s request by hitting the cell phone repeatedly with a hammer until it was in several pieces.

But at 3:11 p.m., video surveillance at the store recorded the man re-entering the store through the Tire-Lube Express entrance while carrying a plastic bottle containing what appeared to be “a brownish colored substance,” which he allegedly poured onto five laptop computers at the store.

The brownish substance was believed to be tobacco spit.

The suspect was recorded by video surveillance driving away in a green-colored Pontiac sedan with hubcaps missing from both front tires.

If I could make stuff like this up, I’d be independently wealthy.

Stuff You Should See– January 15th through January 26th

Celebrity Rehab 3 – Take it day by day. If you can go the whole season without watching an episode, more power to you. But I'll bet you a cold cold beer you can't do it.

Mardi Gras 1956 – This is cool. I haven't been to New Orleans in 6 or 7 years. This makes me want to go back. Not for Mardi Gras, but I still want to go back.

Lost Fans Soon To Be More Annoying – I can't wait to hypothesize on Twitter. For hours.

Trees toppling in national park kills – Wow….this is really sad and such a freak accident. You don't think about things like this happening.

Lane Kiffin Dirt and Cover Up – I've heard for a while there is some of this type stuff out there, but haven't seen anything other than stuff on message boards. I run a message board and can attest that it's not much more than a bunch of monkeys banging on keyboards. But once a blogger takes the time to type it up…maybe there's something to it. Interesting!

Background Apps To The iPhone? – An Apple fan girl told me this already existed. I guess not. I have to say, I LOVE having the ability to stream Pandora and run a Cardio program simultaneously while I'm running. It works just like you'd think it would. Cardio lowers the volume of Pandora to give you distance and pace, and raises the volume back when it's finished.

Dysfunctional Leadership Quotes – It's funny to read this and know that somewhere out there, there are even worse examples of leadership than those described here. LOL!

Venues Can Display Foursquare Mayors – It will be awesome when I'm featured on the WalMart, Publix, Panera, and IKEA websites. You may already believe that's me on the Sea World site when you visit, but that's an actual whale.

15 Steps to Cultivate Lifelong Learning – Very nice article here. Even though I sort of know all of these things intuitively, I need to be more active in implementing some of them.

Delicious Link Dump– October 9th through October 12th

I Married a Mad Man – This sounds more like Mad Men: The Movie

The End of the Email Era – Someone faxed this to me. I made photocopies and sent it to several friends via USPS: "Email, stuck in the era of attachments, seems boring compared to services like Google Wave…"

Hot Pink Mess – Oh. My.

Rob Golding » phpBB3 WSOD (White Screen of Death) – Thanks to these guys for the solution. Short answer…log in to the admin panel and clear the cache. This is something they need to fix. Oh…maybe I should check for an update while I'm at it. 😀

10 things you need to stop tweeting about – I don't violate many of these too often. There are so many other ways to get people on Twitter mad at you without even trying.

The Nobel Intentions Prize – I'm so glad BHO won the Nobel Peace Prize. It's brought out the comedic genius in lots of people on Twitter.

Levels of business intelligence – Nice article that 'splains a lot.

Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize – "…some sort of bizarre Onion gag?" Now that's funny.
