Here's the guy's dealership. Go buy cars now! If only to piss off the CNN interviewer.

A giant photo of the soldier hung in the piazza, with the words "Rome wants its citizen Gilad Shalit free" - words Mayor Alemanno repeated at the evening ceremony.
I'm sure you're asking, "WTF?! I thought Gilad Shalit was Israeli!" or maybe if your online alias is Palin Steele, "Who the hell is Gilad Shalit and why should I look up a minor piece of trivia?!" This is the part that is so moving:
Mayor Gianni Alemanno told those assembled of his ties to the Shalit family and to Israel. He met with Noam Shalit several weeks ago, when he visited Sderot, and called on all the capitals of Europe to give Gilad honorary citizenship. "We must bolster the message and all fight towards one goal," he said, "bringing Gilad safe and well to his family."
The city council voted to give Shalit honorary citizenship to coincide with Thursday's third anniversary of his capture in a cross-border raid from Gaza.
For those of you not watching the show, and you really should be, Veridian Dynamics is the company for which they work. I think I posted this before, but it's worth posting again.

Meanwhile, in other news, environmentalists are mourning because they will no longer be able to rant about plastic grocery bags.

Does that mental image make up for Maxine? Absolved?

First, today is my birthday. Yes, it's a Major One. Yes, I'm having Issues. But, hey, it's better than the alternative.
Second, I'm out of the country visiting the BFF for a week and I have limited internet access so I might not be around very much. I'm not ignoring the fascinating things y'all are saying, I'm just not able to read it.
Don't do anything I wouldn't do.

Recall that I'm on record saying that I would be in favor of the gov't providing free facial tattoos, think of it as branding morons so they'll be instantly recognizable.
In today's first example, we have "Crazy Cracker". And no, that's not what Obama's friends call him, that's what he calls himself
It wasn't difficult for the victims of a Tampa, Fla., home invasion to identify the burglar. He was the only suspect with the state of Florida tattooed on his face. That and the words "Crazy Cracker" written on his head.
He has the state of Florida tattooed on his face with the words Crazy Cracker and he didn't cover it while committing a crime.
I'm not sure if that can be made funnier. Well, maybe he could have an arrow pointing to where he lives in Florida, but that's just quibbling.
Next up, another facial tattoo guy in Utah of all places
Police said Reyes was recognized because of his many facial tattoos, including a spiderweb on his forehead.
There's a very strong case that facial tattoos are a societal good and I wouldn't be all that upset if the gov't paid for them. I would suggest it falls under "Promoting the common good".

Guess what? Jeff Bezos issued an apology today. It's an actual apology too.
With deep apology to our customers,
Founder & CEO
Now that is how it's done. Wouldn't it be nice if other people did that as well?
For the record, I love my Kindle like pie. Really, it's one of the best tech purchases I've ever made. Everyone should have one.

The owner, 28-year-old Olga, agreed to hand over the takings but as she was giving him the money, used her karate skills to knock him to the ground and tie him up with a hairdryer cord.
She then locked him in the storeroom and told colleagues she'd call the police.
However, she instead stripped him and cuffed him to a heater with a pair of fluffy pink handcuffs.
She then fed him Viagra and raped him several times over the next four days.
When finally released, Viktor went first to hospital for treatment for his torn frenulum, and then reported Olga to the police. When she was arrested, Olga reported him for robbery.
"What a b......," she complained.
"Yes, we had sex a couple of times. But I've bought him new jeans, gave him food and even gave him 1000 roubles when he left."

Six years, 313 days ago today, Buzz Aldrin showed how full of awesome he is.

Holy fucking shit I love these. Seriously. I would sell several of y'all's organs for those.
Also I now have a strange urge to watch Resident Evil 2 now. Funny that.
Go Speed Racer! Go Speed Racer! Go Speed Racer go! (actually it's a Rizk Auto RA but that's beside the point)
Tru Fax: My first memory is of watching Speed Racer. No lie.
