If you follow Across-the-Board, I’ve been posting information regarding Jenn Sterger. She is a college student at Florida State University. She’s made her internet ‘splash’ by dressing sexy for FSU Football games. What do I mean by that? Well take a look for yourself: Click here to look at the photo album that has made here the most famous person on Keep your eyes daily on this blog, I’ve been in contact with Jenn in hopes of landing a ‘exclusive interview.’ I’ll let you know what turns up.

So… I wonder what the world thinks? Who’s hotter? Jenn Sterger or Melissa Theuriau? It’ll be interesting if these two ladies will continue to be wildly popular… for just their looks. Or will their appeal drop as quickly as they were created? Time will tell. Good luck to both, Jenn Sterger vs. Melissa Theuriau.

"Old school" headsets for mobile phones? Why?

U2 sucks... and they don't deserve a Grammy

The 48th Annual Grammy Award nominations came out… and I’d like to say a few words.

For the category ‘Song of the Year,’ the rock band U2 was nominated for “Sometimes You Can’t Make It On Your Own.” WTF? Why the heck was this song nominated? During 2005 this song reached #15 on the Adult Top 40 chart and #29 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart in April 2005. It also reached #97 on the Hot 100.

Hardly impressive statistics for a song that the academy is considering to be worthy of ‘Song of the Year’. They are also being nominated for ‘Album of the Year’ as well. Which doesn’t at all lead me into my next point but I’ll continue anyways.

U2 sucks. In their early years they had their glory days, but even then their music sucked. Yes I’m probably a huge minority compared to the majority of people who actually like U2- but I really feel the public is just ‘misguided.’ Hasn’t anyone noticed that every song sounds the same? EVERY song is HUGE and drawn out, in a ‘monster cathedral-like rendition, and which the same guitar cords are recycled from their old songs… don't forget Bono screaming and splattering the same “Oooohs” all over the songs chorus with tons of unneeded reberb/echo. Boring, boring, boring, awful, awful, awful. I can’t even change the radio station or my iPod fast enough before I want to vomit in my mouth. On top of all that, the entire band is extremely pretentious as well.

Hopefully I’m not skirting around how I truly feel about U2. I’m just trying to tell it straight. Here’s someone that agrees with me. Help us all if they win a Grammy this year. We’ll all know for a fact that the Grammy’s is politically influenced if these guys win anything this year.

Pathetic. Yet understandable. Gamers need their fix. Even if it resorts to ‘whoring yourself out’ (as one person described it). Article here.

You can see them, they can't see you pissing...

Check out this bathroom in the middle of London that is enclosed with one way mirrors. Allowing only the person inside the bathroom to see out. Crazy stuff… probably pretty easy to get stage fright in this thing.

Newspaper errors and corrections, the very best

These are excerpts taken from actual newspaper errors and corrections that have happened in various publications this year:

"The Denver Daily News would like to offer a sincere apology for a typo in Wednesday's Town Talk regarding New Jersey's proposal to ban smoking in automobiles. It was not the author's intention to call New Jersey Jew Jersey."

"Norma Adams-Wade's June 15 column incorrectly called Mary Ann Thompson-Frenk a socialist. She is a socialite."

"Fairchild Publications, publisher of Jane and Modern Bride, announced it will pull some 200,000 copies of YM Your Prom off newsstands after Studio 17, a prom-dress advertiser, mistakenly printed a child-porn Web site address in two of its six ad pages. Fairchild had put a total of 680,000 copies on newsstand in late December, but an estimated 75 percent had already been sold."

"In yesterday's Terry Hall column Fletcher Building revenues should have been $3.9 billion rising to $4.6 billion in the latest year, not $4661 billion. Carter Holt's revenues should have been $3.5 billion, with a broker forecast of $3.19 billion, not $3193 billion as reported."

Superman's penis is way to big for Hollywood

The new actor playing Superman (Brandon Routh) has a large penis.

Hollywood executives have ordered the makers of Superman Returns to cover up the rookie actor’s blockbuster bulge.

“It’s a major issue for the studio. Brandon is extremely well endowed and they don’t want it up on the big screen. We may be forced to erase his package with digital effects.”

Wardrobe artists have had to fit him with a special codpiece for the new film out next year. Parker Posey, 37, who co-stars as bad girl Kitty, told how he was constantly being messed about by costume staff.

She said: “He’s got everyone touching him all the time.

“He’s lying on his stomach and he’s got five people coming up and pulling his underwear down, sticking their hands up the butt of his suit.” Article here.

Alarm clocks are bad. How to wake up properly:

Waking up abruptly by the sound of an alarm clock is an inherently unnatural thing to do. Sometimes you can wake up after 8 hours and feel like crap. Other times, you can wake up after 6 hours and feel completely rested. The problem lies in what you're doing when you're suddenly woken up from your slumber.

Here is how to wake up properly:

1.) Set an alarm to go off before the latest time you want to wake up. Make the alarm really quiet radio or music.

2.) Set a second alarm to go off at the latest time you want to wake up. This is your regular alarm that will wake you up no matter what.

The whole point is that the first alarm should be so quiet that it will only wake you up if you're in "light" sleep. Waking up in "light" sleep should leave you feeling more refreshed than waking up in "deep" sleep. The second alarm is the back up to make sure that you wake up in time.

Can you believe this is a fake/computer image?

Someday video games will have CGI that looks this clear. Amazing don't you think?

Guy builds a $500,000 sports bar without liquor?

A bar in an Ohio is sitting unused after the owner discovered he set up shop in a dry district.

More than $560,000 was invested in Legends Sports Pub & Grille in Plain Township before owner Mike Bolognue learned from the state Division of Liquor Control that he couldn't get a liquor license.

Bolognue said he plans to serve food until May, when voters can decide whether to approve alcohol sales.

''We're the only sports bar in the world, we think, that doesn't sell alcohol,'' Bolognue said.

The pub serves breakfast, which wasn't originally planned, and focuses on specials like steak and hamburgers to drive food sales. At another Legends bar Bolognue operates, 60 percent of revenue comes from alcohol sales.

The liquor agency routinely accepts applications while still researching whether a license can be issued. The agency didn't learn the area was dry until well after it began the process.

Are you kidding? Isn’t that just common sense to think to make sure you are approved for a liquor license before you even start building anything? I can’t believe this. Especially after forking over half-a-million dollars… you’d think you’ve done your homework on such a large investment. Sucks to be him. Article here.


Man goes wrong way on highway for 11 miles!

A guy in France drove up a motorway in the wrong direction for 11 miles, crashing into five other vehicles and killing one person and injuring three others including two children, police said.

The 66-year-old man continued driving after his first two collisions Sunday in the hope of finding an exit off the A35 in eastern France.

No one was injured in the first collision with two vehicles, but one person was seriously hurt in a second accident with two other vehicles.

The retired motorist, driving with his wife, only came to a halt when he collided head-on with another car, killing an adult and seriously injuring two children aboard.

Police said alcohol tests on the driver proved negative and he could not explain why he had turned the wrong way onto the motorway. He was in shock but he and his wife were otherwise unhurt.

Lets think about this. This man and his wife drove in the wrong direction for 11 miles. Why at no time during that 11 mile stretch, did either of them look out in front of them or around them and realize- hmm… we are going in the wrong direction. Furthermore, why in the heck would you not just STOP. I mean STOP and not move your car. Maybe then you could turn around at least. Why fight it? Again, I guess you got to take into consideration that these people are also elderly. I think elderly people should be required to take a driving test twice a year. Just my opinion. Article here.
