The 'Next Blog' Button

or what else is on blogger...

I've always wondered what others blog about, and by 'others', I mean people who's blogs I don't have linked to my page, so i got to thinking, let's use the 'Next Blog' button and see where we go.
To simplify things, i separated the results into the following categories: Religious, Sports, Family, Politics, Hobbies, Snarky/Sarcastic, Cultural (including blogs about travel and blogs in a foreign language), food, and the good old 'Other' category taking all the uncategorizable blogs and dumping them there.
Also, if I ran into a blog without the 'Next Blog' button at the top, I went back to the previous blog and hit 'Next Blog' again.  Rinse and repeat 99 times until I checked out 100 other blogs.
Here's what I found:
Religious: 7
Sports: 1
Family: 27
Political: 8
Hobbies: 11
Snark/Sarcasm: 5
Cultural (w/ travel & in foreign languages): 21
Food: 8
Other: 12
Some thoughts about this 'Project':
A lot of people like to blog about their real-life families, and most are very nice and complementary.  Many of those focus on their kids, which is sweet, i suppose.
Not as many political blogs as I thought there would be, which is refreshing since the major views have their own fucking TV networks.
I started getting bored of the blogs in foreign languages that I could not read, at one point I got five in a row, which leads me to my next thought:
It seemed after the first 10 hits, that it continued to stay in a particular genre of blog, which was rather annoying.  I figured it would start with mine (which is rife with sarcasm) and continue to pull those up. Alas, I was wrong.
One lady had a blog fully devoted to the color green.
There were 3 blogs devoted to pet fish and aquariums.
Two blogs were devoted to high-heeled shoes, and the authors were female (thank goodness).
And one blog devoted to the fetish of spanking.

Japanese Poop Steaks

diving right back into the odd news of the world that the internet has to offer, i find that japanese researchers have figured out a way to turn human feces into edible steaks.  huh!? 
So, for those still following along, here's what we have:  
Japanese Research + Human Feces = Steaks (allegedly suitable for eating)
and randomly, researchers have discovered that you are what you watch. So for those  that religiously watch 'Jersey Shore', or any of the 'Real Housewives', it's making you dumb.

What's the # for 911?

Just when I thought people couldn't get any stupider, someone reaffirms my faith that people as a species are well, fucking stupid.

A few days ago, in Lincoln, Nebraska, a woman let her garage burn to the ground because she didn't know the number for the fire department. (full article)

Ironically, Ruth and her husband live a block from the rural fire station south of town.  She spent several minutes inside her home looking for the phone number for the rural fire department.

I'm gonna go with 9...1...1...

Give to Goodwill, Yes or No?

There are many things that can be donated to Goodwill:

or maybe these:

but certainly NOT this:

Apparently in the town of Fenton, Michigan, an urn full of ashes appeared at the local Goodwill.  The box it was in was labeled, appropriately (or inappropriately) "Grandma's Urn". Ten inches tall and weighing 10 pounds (that's a shit-ton of ashes), Goodwill Manager Allen Ryckman (not the actor playing Severus Snape in Harry Potter) says it is the #1 or #2 weirdest item ever received. (source)

So remember, when selecting items to donate to Goodwill, make sure you don't give granny's remains away.

Dingoes Ate My Baby

Well, not my baby - mine hasn't been born yet.  However, once again, dingoes are being blamed for injuring a child in Australia, though this time it was two of them, and they were found and put down.  Isn't it amazing what makes the news because of topic?

Look at these faces - could they really eat a baby?

Enjoy your day! (formatting isn't cooperating today)

What's in the Cup?

What is in the cup indeed?

Well for Tiffany G., the plaintiff in this case, it was semen.  Not once, but twice.  Apparently one of her former co-workers, Kevin Llana, got off on jacking off into Tiffany's water bottle she kept on her desk. (source)

Congratulations Mr. Llana, you are a perverted son-of-a-bitch, and even better still, you get to register as a sex offender after you check in to the local jail for six months. Douche.

So, let this serve as a warning to anyone with a water bottle on their desk: Check the contents before drinking if you leave it at your desk while you are away.

And I thought the worst place to get something slipped into a drink was at a bar in a college town by lazy frat boys!  Guess I was wrong.

Dumb-ass of the Week

Welcome to my first dumb-ass of the week post. Each week, I will try and find the biggest dumb-ass in the news that I can - preferably from the U.S., but if an international dumb-ass presents himself, I will grant him/her the award.

This week, my award goes to Anthony Garcia of Los Angeles, CA. 

He pompously had a tattoo of a robbery/murder scene that he was responsible for placed on his upper chest.  Apparently he didn't know that when you spend time in jail for other offenses, they will photo your tattoos in case you do something later.

Congratulations, Mr. Garcia. Your confession is inked to your chest. Society will hopefully never see you again.
