Bush's infamous bathroom note...

So everyone has been talking about this note President George W. Bush wrote to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice during a Security Council meeting at the World Summit. A photographer was taking pictures of Bush, noticed the note he was writing- zoomed in on it, then posted it on his website. The note reads, “I think I may need a bathroom break? Is this possible?” I'm really not sure what the big deal is- everyone needs to go to the bathroom sometime, right? Heck, if your the president you can do what you want can't you?

Russell Crowe can't work in the USA?

Russell Crowe's lawyers are working to win a reduction of the assault charge filed against him after hurled a phone at a hotel staffer.

He was charged with felony assault after he was accused of throwing a malfunctioning telephone at hotel concierge this past June.

If convicted, Crowe could lose his right to work in the United States and could face up to seven years in prison. His lawyers are working to have the felony charge reduced to a less serious misdemeanor.

Guy jumps off bridge while on fire...

A man in New York jumped off a bridge into the Hudson River after his car caught fire. A tractor-trailer had slammed into his disabled vehicle on the bridge, and his first instinct after being caught on fire was to jump off the bridge.

Awesome, just awesome. Talk about an intense chain of events. Tractor-trailer slams into your broken-down car, car catches on fire, you catch on fire, you open door run around in panic, jump off a bridge, wade in the water and collect your thoughts, tread water until emergency crews rescue you. Talk about a bad day. Click to read the article.

Computer enhanced picture…

These are pictures of the same person. Except the one on the right has been digitally enhanced (and they put make-up on her). Another reason to never believe any picture you see in a magazine.

Pole-dancing parties?

So, apparently "pole dancing parties" is the new craze hitting households around the world. Did I miss something? When did this become popular? Does anyone else think this is kind of weird? I can understand why Tupperware and Mary-Kay parties, but pole dancing? Don't get me wrong- I'm not complaining. I'm just confused, really confused. This website sells everything you need to hold your own party. I still can't believe this is real. Check out the website to read more.
P.S. check out the gallery of pictures of example parties, I guarantee a good chuckle.

Guinness World Record holder...

Somehow someway I came across this guy’s website- David Rosdeitcher. Apparently he can juggle seven balls at a time, and recite the location of every zip code in America and abroad. Impressed? That’s nothing compared to his sense of style and the professionalism of his website. What the hell is wearing in this picture? Did he steal the sweater from Bill Cosby?

Two optical illusions…
