Ferdinand the Bull is a total steal on eBay
Yeah, your wildest dreams have finally come true. “Ferdinand the Bull” which is 11 ft tall x 16 ft long and weighs around 1000 pounds- is finally for sale on eBay. Get excited. I know I am. It was bought for an ice cream shop, originally costing $16,000.
I know we’ve all been waiting for this. And it’s just in time for the holiday season. How awesome is this thing? But the best part of this auction? …this direct quote from the listing:
“Just look at those big blue eyes. He's really gentle and doesn't eat much. No pooper scooper needed! He just likes to watch kids play and get his picture taken with them. He's kind of a ham.”
You simply can’t make this stuff up. This is quality stuff. Click here to see the actual eBay listing.
Highlights of My Day:
1. Dreamt I invented a font type named "hairy," in which each letter appeared as it would if it were shaved on the back of a hairy man
2. Realized I should probably contact the people at Guinness after a co-worker took what appeared to be the "largest dump of all time"
3. Considered what living in a ginger bread house would do for my sex life
4. Witnessed the worst attempt in the history of parrallel parking...pointed, laughed and continued on with my day
5. Discovered I get a slight twitch in my left eye whenever co-workers ask me to do something that sounds like it would suck worse than dying
6. Wondered when the CEO will read the comment I dropped in the comment box... "I think some exotic dancers would really liven this place up."
7. Tried to figure out how many licks it would take to get to the point where your tongue falls off
8. Made a profile on e-harmony in which I stated I was looking for a "partner in crime", I then went on in blunt detail as to which type of crimes I was looking to commit
9. About lost it when I heard the hostess at our resturant say, "Rimjob, party of two? Your table is ready."
10. Purposely fell asleep with the National Geographic Channel on to see if I'd dream about those weird tribal woman's banana boobs

Device can stop you from speeding via a GPS
Canadian auto regulators are testing a system that would enforce speed limits by making it harder to push down the car's gas pedal once the speed limit is passed, via a global positioning satellite device installed in the car to monitor the car's speed and position.
If the car begins to significantly exceed the speed limit for the road on which it's travelling the system responds by making it harder to depress the gas pedal.
The pilot test, using 10 cars driven by volunteers, is believed to be the first in North America, although similar systems have been tested in several European countries.
Uh, not sure how I feel about this one. What happens if there is an instance where you need to speed a little bit to pass a person? What about emergency situations? I really just don’t like the idea of giving that much control of your vehicle to the government. I mean if they start with the gas pedal, what’s next? However, it would be interesting to see how this would effect the accident rates. Article here.
