Downtown Saginaw was recently hit with a bulging traffic delay, as illustrated by Siobhan Riley of ABC 12, who inadvertantly drew a 9
inch block penis across the chroma key.
Pennsylvania resident Chris Reynolds got quite a shock when he opened his most recent PayPal statement — it said he had a $92,233,720,368,547,800 balance in his account.
“I’m just feeling like a million bucks,” Reynolds told the [Philadelphia] Daily News yesterday. “At first I thought that I owed quadrillions. It was quite a big surprise.”
When asked what he would do with the money, he said, “I would pay the national debt down first. Then I would buy the Phillies, if I could get a great price.”
The Daily News speculates that the astronomical balance may be related to PayPal’s new Galactic initiative, announced last month, to expand its business beyond Earth. “Perhaps Reynolds’ astronomical PayPal credit could get him a few trips to the moon, or at least a nice stay at a space hotel.”
Meet Brett Stalbaum… A self-described social libertarian, economic liberal and University of California San Diego lecturer by day. In his free time, he’s a criminal enabler, bent on outing the privacy of honest everyday citizens that own guns.
This anti-gun hippie developed an application on the Android platform, called Gun Geo Marker, that relies on crowdsourced information; allowing users to mark the homes and businesses of “suspected unsafe gun owners”. He does this under the guise of “helping others in the area learn about their geography of risk from gun accidents or violence”.
Just as he’d like to get your name and info out there with certain other members of society – I’m sure many of you would love to call him, write him, or maybe pay a visit in person to have a friendly conversation about his app, and express your frustrations or debate it’s merits. I’m sure certain members of society would also love to thank him personally for giving them that informative tool to use. I’m sure they’d love to send him a gift, or maybe stop by person to deliver it – without worry of surprising him, because I’m sure his house doesn’t have any unsafe guns there.
If you’d like to write him or maybe drop personally and chat, his home address is:
Brett Owen Stalbaum, Sr.
1016 Stage Coach Trail
Julian, CA 92036-9317
He might be at work though, in which case that would be:
University of California San Diego
9500 Gilman Drive # 0320
La Jolla, CA 92093-0320
If you’d like to call him, he’s got a hotline specifically setup to discuss the app. That number is 225-267-7346. He might be busy though, and could have someone else working that hotline.
If you’d like to get a hold of him personally though, his work number is 858-822-2926, or 858-534-2860. Or maybe you just want to send him a thank you fax instead, at 858-534-5575.
Then again, it might be easier to reach him at home at 760-263-4103 or 760-765-1403.
He might be on the go somewhere though, in which case his cell phone would probably be the best way to get him at 619-757-9992.
Oh his date of birth is December 28th, 1966 if you’d like to send him a birthday card.

This coming from the domestic terrorist that bombed the Pentagon…

AFP – An obviously tired German bank employee fell asleep on his keyboard and accidentally transformed a minor transfer into a 222 million euro ($293 million) order, a court heard Monday.
The Hessen labour court heard that the man was supposed to transfer just 62.40 euros from a bank account belonging to a retiree, but instead “fell asleep for an instant, while pushing onto the number 2 key on the keyboard” — making it a huge 222,222,222.22 euro order.
The bank discovered the mistake shortly afterwards and corrected the error.
The case was taken to court by the man’s 48-year-old colleague who was fired for letting the mistake slip through when verifying the order.
The court ruled that the plaintiff should be reinstated in his job.
On this day – June 2, 2008, just two weeks shy of what would have been his 21st birthday,

I was made aware of a birthday celebration today through the “I Love Texas” Facebook fan page that I follow (your blog host is a native son to said Great State).
Today is the 74th birthday of one of my all-time favorite music artists. A man affectionately known as the “Gentle Giant”, a legend in classic country music – Don Williams. He was born on this day in 1939 in Floydada, Texas.
In his honor, I present you with a live performance of one of my all time favorite songs…
