Gore Leading the Parade on Global Warming


This is pretty interesting. Al Gore is planning a 24 hour concert series on seven continents to highlight the dangers of Global Warming.



The list of artists who will be performing is impressive:

Pharrell, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Foo Fighters, Snoop Dogg, Lenny Kravitz, Bon Jovi, Paolo Nutini, Sheryl Crow, AFI, Melissa Etheridge, John Mayer, Damien Rice, Corrine Bailey Rae, Duran Duran, Snow Patrol, John Legend, Black Eyed Peas, Akon, Enrique Iglesias, Fall Out Boy, Mana, Keane, Kelly Clarkson, Korn, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Ray LaMontagne, Robin Thicke, and Kenna.

The one U.S. city that will host the concert has yet to be announced and ticket sales info is supposed to be announced in March.

Why It is Unlikely There Will Ever Be Another 9-11

I have been saying this for a long time. September 11, 2001 was a horrible attack, but this is another example of why that trick will only work once.

Passengers subdue armed hijacker

I know one thing for sure, no plane I am ever on is going to be hijacked while I am still alive. I know a lot of people who feel the same way since 9-11. The "Shoe Bomber" learned that lesson as well.

Superbowl

I watched Superbowl 41 last night and I must say I was a little disappointed. Not in the game but in the commercials. I have always looked forward to watching the new, amusing, and interesting ads. Usually numerous companies take advantage of the captive audience. Such commercials as Ridley Scott's Mac Commercial, the Bud Bowl and others have debuted during the Superbowl.
This year about all of them sucked. It costs millions to get an ad on the Superbowl and it appears a majority of companies wasted their money. For the most part the ads were boring, tasteless and some I swear were reruns.
To make matters worse it appeared as if every other ad was for a CBS show. I mean you always expect whatever network that is broadcasting the Superbowl to plug their own shows. This was ridiculous I think over half the ads were for CBS.

Officials in Boston are Idiots

These guys say it very well for all of us. The blame for this falls squarely on the shoulders of the city officials in Boston who overreacted to cartoon characters on little blinking signs that were hanging for three weeks before they decided to panic.
