Yes, I'm Single

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann was out in Iowa recently. She's considering a run for the White House and suggested changing to tax code; giving married couples a tax break at the expense of singles.

My first thought when I read this was:
Well, I suppose it's only fair to tax bachelors more. Married men already have a special tax to bear. It's called a "wife".
Well, with thoughts like that running through my head, I guess it's no wonder why I'm still single.

Who Needs the NFL?

The NFL lockout shows no sign of ending anytime soon. Luckily, there is an alternative. One that might actually be better than the NFL itself.

There is the Lingerie Football League. It features football, played by women in their underwear. If one adds a beer and some nachos then this very well may be the perfect way to spend an afternoon.

I'm just glad, though, that with the LFL putting beautiful women on the field to play football, they didn't decide to put guys on the sidelines in skimpy outfits as cheerleaders. I'm sure there are some folks out there would love to see that happen. I, however, am not one of them.

Michigan Is Screwed

Rachel Maddow talked about the budget situation in Michigan rather extensively. Her comments are well worth listening to, in my opinion, regardless of where you happen to live.

International Women's Day

Today is the 100th International Women's Day - a special day dedicated to celebrating the economic, political, and social achievements of women past, present and future. In order to celebrate this occasion in true international fashion, I have decided to ogle nothing but photos of women from outside the United States today.

I wonder what kind of sandwich a Brazilian woman would make.

Random Thought #419

I've noticed several things over my years on this planet. One of them is that first person to stab you in the back or steal from you is usually the person who tells you repeatedly how honest he or she is.

Truly honest people, at least in my personal experience, simply live up to their commitments and lead an honest life. They never feel a need to tell anyone how trustworthy they are.

I came to this conclusion several years ago, after dealing with a certain former employer of mine who - I later discovered - was running a narcotics and prostitution ring on the side. I've been thinking about it a lot as of late while listening to a certain politician tell me for the eighth time in two years just how trustworthy he is, even though he hasn't kept most of his campaign promises.

As Long As There's Whiskey In It...

I saw the illustration below on a friend's Facebook page and I had to steal it. I would like to thank whoever it was that invented the right mouse click; this person has given me so much.

Men Will Die (Sooner) If We Don't Stare at Boobs

Some rather strange things have come out of Germany, not the least of which is David Hasselhof's popularity. Today, however, we something that is both strange and wonderful from Germany.

Stare and Live Longer
Researchers in Frankfurt, Germany have concluded that staring at women's breasts actually extends a man's lifespan by about five years. Their research is published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Unfortunately, they did not opine on whether or the breasts in question belong to their respective wives or some other random female.

I suspect this study will prompt some curious discussions between couples.

In the meantime, I'm downloading all of the photos I can of Jessica Alba, Katherine HieglParis HiltonSienna MillerRachel Nichols, and Hayden Panettierre. Heck, I might even throw a little Kirsten Haglund or Rima Fakih into the mix as well.
