I have to say this before I forget this amazing invention. Seems a good number of pets are getting fleas lately. My coworker friend says she uses Frontline but this just makes the fleas active and jump off her dogs! So the trick is to catch those fleas as they look for more succulent blood! They are attracted to humans!
Here is what needs to be invented and I believe Graham Man might be the engineer to do it! Special sticky shoes. Perhaps impregnated with honey or some other "green" material. The fleas would jump on the honey-shoe and get stuck!!
All you have to do is walk around!!!! Then when the shoes get filled with fleas just toss them out (or let your dog lick the shoes as a special treat).
Then there is the Vikings. I hate the team, the head coach is so lame it's surreal and 10% of their fans are arrogant boneheads. Yet - you have to admit, the Vikings have the worst luck in all of pro franchise's! In fact many of their bonehead blunders actually have names and are urban legends!
** 4 Superbowl losses
** 5 straight losses in NFC Championship games
**The love boat incident
** The Whizzantor
**Gary Anderson who had just completed the first perfect regular season in NFL history (not missing a single extra point or field goal attempt the entire year), missed a 38-yard attempt with less than 2 minutes remaining in NFC championship game that most likely puts Vikes in Superbowl in 98.
**in 2003 Arizona's last second touchdown on 4th and 28 against Vikings eliminated Vikings from playoffs. The moment of Arizona's touchdown was actually the first moment the entire season in which the Vikings hadn't led their division. The Vikings became the second team in football history to miss the playoffs after getting off to a 6-0 start
**The "Hail Mary" pass Drew Pearson caught against the Vikes in 75 NFC championship to give Dallas the win in the final minute.
**Jim Marshalls wrong way run
**The Herschel Walker trade in which Vikings gave Dallas three 1st rounders, three 2nd rounders, plus a 3rd and a 6th rounder in addition to 5 players. Walker lasts only 3 seasons in Minnesota
**Vikings despite being favored, The Vikings lose 41-0 in NFC championship game in 2000.
**Green Bays Antonio Freeman makes one of the all time great miracle catches in overtime to defeat Vikings in 2000
** With 19 seconds remaining in the 2010 NFC Championship game the Vikings call a timeout on 3rd and 10 at the Saints 33 yard line. They had one timeout remaining, so the smart money was on them running the ball and hoping to gain four to five yards -- thus setting up an approximately 45-yard field goal as time expired to win the game. On that next play the Vikings are penalized for 12 men in the huddle. The penalty pushed them out of FG range and most likely cost them a trip to the Superbowl. See below for nail in the coffin on the next play
**2010 Favre`s 4th down 4th quarter interception with seconds remaining vs Saints in NFC championship puts New Orleans in Superbowl.
Now . . . . Moss - at least they have a lot of woods and trees to calm people down.
