airing out the man-thong

obviously this guy was on his way to the jason mraz concert when his shoe got untied.

why even wear anything at all? you would think if he was going to the jason mraz concert, he would just go commando? girls, what’s your take on this?

post garage-sale links

this weekend, people paid us to haul the garbage out of the garage – otherwise known as a garage sale. remnants of excessive credit-card spending, failed home business and overzealous o’reilly book purchases were all on display for our neighbors to see. the serious shoppers came early in the morning, snapping up the good stuff while the casual buyers sorted through the chaff the rest of the day.

read these links while i roll all the quarters up, so i can deposit them at the bank and buy a peet’s coffee:

-> someone felt compelled enough to write up a craigslist posting about the hidden power show present at male urinals worldwide. i think most guys are aware of this, but let it pass without incident [craigslist]

-> some guy reported problems with things missing out of his car after bringing it in for service at a toyota dealership in pennsylvania. after getting the brush off from the dealer, he put a camera in the car before the next service visit and saw employees stealing his change, picking through the console for stuff and also watching a porno on a laptop while working on the car [consumerist]

-> scientific research shows that if you keep a baby picture in your wallet, you are more likely to get it returned to you if someone finds it [times.co.uk]

-> a shoe designer thought that maybe reverting back to paleolithic-era running styles could be beneficial to reducing injuries and returning a more “natural” form of running. the best argument is that our ancestors used to run barefoot – sure, but did they really run several miles a day as part of a fitness routine or were they running so that big wild rhinoceros chasing them didn’t catch and eat them? runner friend dani said she actually has seen runners with these on in the city [wired magazine]

-> nifty explanations of why the salt ponds around the sf bay area are colored the way they are [killer directory]

and…

-> some examples of michael jackson tattoos that people have gotten/are getting. i’m sure you already know how i feel about this but it still makes me feel good about my position in life when i know there are these people at the bottom of the ladder [unfabulouz.com]

random tidbits

not much to say today, not enough links to write up a whole post so this is just a random collection of crap which will hopefully make you smile/cry/wince.

more google suggested searches – remember, these are actual phrases people have typed into google and google is just trying to be helpful so you don’t have to type the whole thing.

someone snapped this picture from a recent wal-mart trip:

and a couple links:

-> some cities thinking of enabling the composting toilet. a classic example of some life coming from the dead [nytimes.com]

-> president obama likes to say things with the correct pronunciation, trying to be as authentic as possible. people will say he’s trying hard when it’s CHEE-leh (Chile) but he’s favoring his muslim past when he says PAH-kih-ston (Pakistan) [politico.com]
