Fri 02/26/2010: Catchy slogan or professional credibilty.

Nothing make me feel confident about someones qualifications and capabilities to provide instruction to improve language skills and ablilities like deliberately miss spelling something for a cliched name.
You know it would have worked if they left of the "English"

Bet she purrs like a kitten!

I remember a gas commercial that promised a "Tiger in you tank!" Is he saying there's a tabby in the tank?

Tue 02/23/2010: And this campers is why I wear full face helmets with visor at night.

During the day I make sure I have either a visor down or am behind a full windshield. This picture is the result of a dusk trip through a semi-rural on my smaller motorcycle with a half windshield. And people wonder why I question the intelligence of riders that will not wear a helmet and won't have a windshield.

First of all I'll apologize for the image quality. Most of the shots on this site are taken with a cell phone camera. And available light greatly affects image quality.

So I found this a while ago on a contract gig.
First lets show the setup. This is what I saw approaching the station.
What I saw on approach.

As I came closer I could not help but notice the surge strip had a label on it.
Here's a closer view of the label.

If you cannot read it, it says:
Light on.
Unit is OK.
Light off.
Replace unit.

So here's my amusement with this.
Light on unit is Ok - That works I guess.
Light off, replace unit - ?
How about power is off, or unit is unplugged or unit is turned off, or unit needs to be reset.

I think this person is making a statement. I'm not sure what it is, but they do appear to be enjoying themselves.

This was sent to us by Cabul of Squak!


Seems we've been WebSensed! That is itself would be funny. But the real funny is that this is from a place where Cabul and I worked together. And it appears to be directly added to their filters as I know several other companies that use Websense and they can get here just fine. Seems some people there still don't like me. And they have entirely too much time on their hands.

I especially love the category as there is no mail server on this domain.

Mon 02/15/2010: One weird qwerty.

Not really funny but trippy to the eye. This is apparently an ergonomic qwerty layout. I'm not convinced.

It just looks awkward?!

Fri 02/12/2010: Sometimes it's good to get a little constructive criticism

It will sometimes stop you from making choices you shouldn't. The poster below is a great example. If they had asked someone not involved in the project that created it, they would have been shown their miss fire.
smoke 'm if you got 'm
I think the idea here was supposed to be that smoking is like being on a sinking ship. But really I gotta say that if you are in that position and smoking makes you feel better,... light the hell up. And actually if I'm there with you and smoking keeps you smiling in the situation above, I think I'd take one too. This little poster of fail is courtesy the VA hospital.

Thu 02/11/2010: Evergizer

Would the mascot be the Evergizer Catbit?
I saw this while shopping one day. I thought it funny that flashlight from major battery maker A would include batteries from minor(comparitively) battery maker B.

I later found out that A owns B. But still at this point is the savings worth the brand confusion?
