Chris Crocker on YouTube

Chris Crocker is the funny guy who did the now-famous "Leave Brittney alone!!!!" video and he has numerous other videos on YouTube. I love his advice on women for straight guys. VISIT HIS YOU TUBE CHANNEL.

These are some animated .gif's I made from one of his videos (the one where he does a take-off on Brittney's newest video). He's just having fun, he's not being mean-spirited or I would not promote him here. I think he's very, very funny.

10 Totally Stupid Online Business Ideas That Made Someone Rich

Hey! Answer my Yahoo question!

I've been fiddling around at Yahoo Answers, mostly answering peoples' questions and now I've asked a question but the turnover in questions is so fast, a hundred questions get asked right after you ask one so your question usually gets buried. Which is what happened to my question, lol.

It's a good question, asking for links/examples of how the media has lied or made horrible mistakes. I posted several links for examples, like the fake Palestinian funeral that showed the "dead" guy getting up and walking.

Anyway, if you see this post here, go have a look-see at my Yahoo question, okay?

Answer: GROW A BRAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From a British newspaper's advice column:

I'M SEX BAIT IN A TRAP - 18 May 2008

Q: My boyfriend wants me to "honeytrap" one of his clients to land him a big-money contract. A few weeks ago we went to France to meet this man and discuss the deal. He's in his late 50s, fat, sweaty and married with kids, but he clearly fancied me and kept touching me up.

I tried to smile and ignore it but when I told my boyfriend later what had happened he was pleased - and actually said I should have flirted back.

This guy is coming over again next month and my boyfriend keeps going on about how important the deal is and how we have to keep him sweet.

He asked me to do "whatever it takes" to close the deal. I'm trying not to think about it, but how far does he expect me to go? He's actually booked us into his hotel for the night. I want him to get the deal but not like this. What can I do?

The question and answer can be found HERE.

My husband, Luis Felipe Espinola de la Vega of Chile

Actually, I just wanted to post this awesome photograph of an erupting volcano in southern Chile. My husband owns a company called Telecheque, located in Santiago, Chile and that's quite a bit north of this natural disaster. See my husband's website.

Should government agencies funded by public tax dollars sponsor religion or a particular religious belief?

Fla. lawmakers debate 'believer's' license plate

MIAMI (AP) — Florida drivers can order more than 100 specialty license plates celebrating everything from manatees to the Miami Heat, but one now under consideration would be the first in the nation to explicitly promote a specific religion.

The Florida Legislature is considering a specialty plate with a design that includes a Christian cross, a stained-glass window and the words "I Believe."

...If the plate is approved, Florida would become the first state to have a license plate featuring a religious symbol that's not part of a college logo. Approval would almost certainly face a court challenge.

The problem with the state manufacturing the plate is that it "sends a message that Florida is essentially a Christian state" and, second, gives the "appearance that the state is endorsing a particular religious preference," said Howard Simon, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida.

I don't know why, exactly, but sometimes my Internet Explorer loads the content of an iframe but does not display it until I click inside the iframe and hit "refresh." Sometimes, you just have to refresh the inside of the iframe to make the good stuff show up. This is worth the effort. Then refresh it again to see a new image!

From Inside Stonehenge

These photos were taken from inside the center altar area of Stonehenge, looking outwards, which is the opposite of the usual view of Stonehenge. It was one long panoramic 360 degree photo and I just stopped and did screen captures along the way. I'm not sure now which St0nehenge website did this but I think it may have been the official website of Stonehenge (see links below photos to find out more about this mystical place).






And now for some info on Stonehenge:

"Your Guide to Stonehenge" - includes photos of solstices, etc.

The Stonehenge Project - The Stonehenge Project is designed to improve the setting and interpretation of Stonehenge. It will remove the sights and sounds of the roads and traffic from the area near the Stones, recreate chalk downland from arable farmland and transform the visitor experience with better access to the landscape and a new world class visitor centre.

Stonehenge Laser Scans - This site allows you to discover Stonehenge using laser scanning technology. Archaeologists have found long lost ancient art on the henge.

English-Heritage.org: Stonehenge - As old as the pyramids in Egypt, was Stonehenge designed as a place of sun worship, or as part of a huge astronomical calendar?

About Stonehenge

Stonehenge from Icons.org - Stonehenge has always been controversial. Who built it? And why? And how? Over the centuries countless myths have sprung up about its origins and functions - in fact, it's likely that some of what you think you know about Stonehenge isn't even true!

"'Breakthrough' at Stonehenge dig" - a news article dated April 9, 2008

So I was farting around with Photoshop and Ulead GIF Animator...

...and here's what I made:

and this...

Oh, yeah... feel free to download these images to your own computer then upload them to your own webhost or image hosting space and use them on your own pages or emails. PLEASE DO NOT DIRECT LINK as I do change images to embarrass "bandwidth thieves." Heh heh... you don't want to be like that poor guy who direct-linked to one of my images for his message board siggie. Oh man, thousands of posts, all over that system, all changed to something extremely embarrassing. And I wasn't even being mean to him -- it's just a matter of routine. So be careful. No direct linking.
