It is probably in your best interest to get your information from Cecil instead of the Learn Something, because it obviously lists some erroneous information.

Side note...

I was reminded a few times today that people actually read this blog on a semi-regular basis. I was turning lackadaisical with things lately, focusing on other things. See, I don't have a widget that shows me how many hits I get (if anyone knows where I can get one, please let me know). I was beginning to think that this was all futile.

I started this blog because every morning I would send out about 50 emails to various friends of anything that would interest them. Some people had trouble opening my links, and some started to think I had nothing better to do with my time then send emails. This morphed into a laborious process, so I had the idea to combine them in to one place. There are other career related objectives here, but I won't bore you with that.

Anyway, for those of you that know me, you know I don't like to get mushy. However, I would like formalize this. Thank you.

The 11 Stupidest 911 Calls Of All Time

Ok, The pictures are awesome. They really paint a picture. However, I am DEEPLY disturbed that the dispatcher let this lunatic keep talking so long and did not send a deputy to write her a ticket for a phony 911 call. Sometimes when you call 911 you are put on hold. THIS IS WHY.

The Timeless Wisdom of Larry David | Sloshspot Blog

I just read an article in EW about the Seinfeld reunion spanning a few episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm. I have never watched the show. I'm sure I would love it, I quote Seinfeld at least once a day... ANYWAY, I will be sure to check on this as it transpires.
