WOW - talk about polar opposites when it comes to fixing America. I don't think the Democrats and Republicans can be farther apart when it comes to stimulus. But since the Republicans did SO well the last eight years why not give the Democrats a crack at it.
So when it comes to the extra boost in our checks in April of $13 a week ($26 a pay check) I hear people complaining that it's a waste because it's so little. Well, being a poker player and knowing about bankrolls this is a pretty smart way to get money flowing into the economy.
Sure $13 a week sounds small but you ask any restaurant owner and he will tell you that that $13 per person will really help his buisness. It's not like it's being tossed in the garbage. Millions of $13's will slowly creep into the economy every week. It might not help YOU immediately but it will help the economy which in turn will help you in the long run.
If you gave a lump sum to me I would run out and buy some Chinese Electronics. Instead I will go to a restaurant or a movie or buy a DVD or some other small trickling thing.
Like poker - anytime I can save a tiny amount, in the long run those tiny amounts really do add up, you just don't realize it . . . unless you have a graph :-)
I'm almost afraid to say this but I have relatively firm information that the Public Enemies trailer COULD be out in a few days. 80% chance my source has mentioned. Plus any rumors of a premiere in Madison are just silly talk. Don't ask me about reshoots (seriously, don't ask and don't get excited as there is nothing to get excited about . . . . . unless things change . . . and we all know Michael Mann never changes anything and is always on time.)
And I'm still trying to digest why this person mentioned September. Could have been a slip or just a brain cramp, a red herring perhaps or just toying with me as he has done for the last 10 months.
Thanks to krisx for sort of coming up with a label idea for my Scottish Heavy. I was always leaning towards Scotty from Star Trek but she came up with Fat Bastard for the label. But taking it a step farther and I will now call the brew Fat Bastard. With Fat Tire, Fat Squirrel, Fat Gary, Big Fat Tuba, Fat Cat, Fat Dog, Fat Freddy, Fat Head, Fat Altbier, it sort of fits. Plus Scottish Ales are rather fat in texture anyway, malty, and smooth.
PLUS - the idea was thought of on FAT TUESDAY!!!
That new breakthrough in flu vaccine sounds exciting. Take it once in your life and never get the flu!!! They say it should be out 3 years. ALTHOUGH - remember Will Smith in that zombi movie? Everybody took a breakthrough vaccine and 10 years later they all died? Or another idea is that aliens invented it and while it cures the flu all of your children are sterile but no one knows it until it's too late and the aliens can them come down to the sterile earth full of old people and take over. Yea - think about it.
Coming soon to a store near you (if you live in Columbus). Beautiful two sided laminated bookmarks - collect the entire set (2), trade them with your friends, put them in the spokes of your bike. And on the back there is a little story (small changes might occur with the finished product, like with the date - I'm making it 3/08 or something, March 2008? hmmmmm).
