Every- so- often, an opportunity is presented to you that's just too good to pass up... and then, for whatever reason, you pass it up anyway. At some point, when it's too late, you realize that you're a fool. It happens to all of us... some of more than once. We had a guy who called us a few weeks ago who expressed his regret that he passed on the chance to provide the only penis in a ménage- a- trios back in high school because in the years since, he hasn't received a similar invite. Not every regret is like that, but you get what I'm saying. The inspiration for today's question comes from www.tvweek.com, which put together a list of "11 Actors and the Big TV Roles They Turned Down". We're not sure that all of them regret not taking these roles... but we're sure that some of them do. Today's question: WHAT OPPORTUNITY DID YOU HAVE THAT YOU REGRET NOT TAKING ADVANTAGE OF?
Off the top of my head, I can think of 5 actors who turned down movie roles, and they are: Will Smith turned down the role of Neo in the "Matrix" movies, John Travolta passed on "Forrest Gump" (which is probably a good thing. Try to picture it), Tom Selleck turned down the role of "Indiana Jones", Mark Wahlberg recently confessed that he turned down a role in the "Star Trek" reboot and, believe it or not, OJ Simpson was denied the title character in "The Terminator" because, as a producer said, "no one would believe that such a nice man could be a killer." True.
So, what things did you turn down that you now regret? As we expected, there was plenty of sex:
Could have slept with 4 army broads at once, but turned it down. He was married at the time
Really wishes he'd slept with more girls in high school. If you'd seen the girls in MY high school, you wouldn't feel that way. Ugliest group of women in one place in the history of planet Earth
Had the chance to buy a Geo Metro for $1000, but he viewed the car as a "gutless pig"... then, the price of gas shot through the roof for no particular reason and has stayed high
Turned down a full- ride apprenticeship at an electric company because she's a she... which makes no sense to me
Ran track in high school and was offered a scholarship for college... but who wants to get up at 5am to run at 6am? Not that guy.
Turned down a full scholarship to WSU... ended up at a community college and got a "garbage" degree
Could have slept with a Playboy centerfold... don't know why he didn't. Honestly, I think I had the same opportunity with a centerfold who will remain nameless... but I was in a relationship AND I'm a f**king idiot
Dated a model for a while, after the break- up she offered him a ticket to Tokyo where she was living... with 3 other models.
Had a tryout with the Yankees, the team he always dreamed of playing for, so when they offered him a tryout, he didn't bother to show up
OK bitches, I'm outta here.
Until tomorrow, bang your head and STAY BEAUTIFUL!"
The new material was recorded in two sessions in 1972 and 1973 at Abbey Road Studios in London. The group used some of the most advanced recording techniques of the time, including multitrack recording and tape loops.
The Dark Side of the Moon was an immediate success, topping the Billboard Top LPs & Tapes chart for one week. It subsequently remained in the charts for 741 weeks from 1973 to 1988. With an estimated 50 million copies sold, it is Pink Floyd's most commercially successful album and one of the best-selling albums worldwide. It has twice been remastered and re-released, and has been covered in its entirety by several other acts.
The success of the album brought previously unknown wealth to all four members of the band; Richard Wright and Roger Waters bought large country houses, and Nick Mason became a collector of upmarket cars. Some of the profits were invested in the production of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Engineer Alan Parsons received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Engineered Recording, Non-Classical for The Dark Side of the Moon, and he went on to have a successful career as a recording artist with the Alan Parsons Project. Although Waters and Gilmour have on occasion downplayed his contribution to the success of the album, Mason has praised his role.In 2003, Parsons reflected: "I think they all felt that I managed to hang the rest of my career on Dark Side of the Moon, which has an element of truth to it. But I still wake up occasionally, frustrated about the fact that they made untold millions and a lot of the people involved in the record didn't.

Yesterday during the Lukewarm Topic of the Day, we talked about why 18-year-old Miss Delaware Teen USA had to give up her crown.
Former Miss Delaware Teen USA, Melissa King, who was crowned this past November, had to resign after a porn video of her surfaced online.
Melissa said in the interview before the actual porn video that she was doing it for the money.
She grew up as a foster kid and her platform for Miss Teen USA was to help work with and mentor foster children.
She’s had a difficult life and is just trying to make a living. I don’t hold any judgment towards her. I think it’s hypocritical that any beauty pageant would fault her for using her looks to make money when that’s the whole point of a pageant! They make money and get attention for the way they look!
Most beauty pageant contestants say they draw the line at “selling their body” and doing porn, but being in magazines and trying to be crowned at a pageant is the same thing. They’re using their looks for money and looking down on Melissa for doing what she did to earn money is just ridiculous!
In Florida, a 37-year-old Pizza Hut employee wanted to impress his girlfriend, so he told her he was a sheriff's deputy. Back in August…Christopher Sharp and his girlfriend moved in together. They must not have been dating very long, because she didn't even know where he worked. Christopher worked at Pizza Hut. But he didn't think his girlfriend would be impressed by that. So he lied, and told her he was a county sheriff's deputy. Every day he would leave the house in a sheriff's uniform. Then he'd change in the car outside the Pizza Hut, and change back after work. And he'd tell his girlfriend, her family, and her friends stories about his adventures as a cop. He gave them advice about getting out of traffic tickets and DUIs. He even went to a New Year's party in his sheriff's uniform. That's when someone tipped off the cops that this guy was going around claiming to be a sheriff's deputy, and it didn't quite add up. They investigated, and Christopher was arrested for impersonating a law enforcement officer earlier this month. Naturally, his girlfriend also dumped him. And he didn't take it well . . . he just got arrested for STALKING her. Now the REAL cops are monitoring him with a GPS ankle bracelet.
Based on this, what have you done to impress someone or what has someone done to impress you? Here are the texts we received:
I once pretended to be topshelf…had free drinks of crown all night…man it’s hard to laugh like him
Told stories from my days in Vietnam, I was born in 1989
I had a large amount of $ in the bank due to selling my home. Printed a bunch of ATM receipts so when I gave a girl my number a $45,000 balance was "discovered". $35,000 went right to my new home.
Had a chick tell us she get get free kegs and had me and my buddy invite all of our freinds to our house... she said she would be there at eight with the beer and never showed turns out I talked with her friend and she said she was lying and it wasn't the first time she did that.
So yesterday BJ, Topshelf, Mono-Nick, BJ’s son The Prodigy, and intern Jay went to Goldberg’s in the Factoria Mall area to eat at Goldberg’s! They tried to tackle the 5 pound Reuben that has been featured on TV before…that’s a pound of meat for each of them! Check this Reuben out…it looks awesome!
Here's an interesting technique you can use to DE-CLUTTER your place. A woman named Vivienne Palmer from Colorado has come up with a technique to de-clutter your place in the course of a year . . . and it actually sounds simple enough to work. All you do is get rid of 10 things a day. Whether you throw them out, sell them on eBay or Craigslist, donate them, give them away to friends, or burn them in a ritualistic bonfire in the backyard . . . just get rid of them. By the end of the year, your house will have 3,650 fewer pieces of useless junk in it. And that's GUARANTEED to make it a more comfortable place to live. Plus, Vivienne found that she's making a surprising amount of money from selling her junk online. She's saving it all, and expects to make several thousand dollars by the end of the year to use on a family trip.
Based on this, finish this sentence: "I wish my significant other would get rid of _____." Here are the texts we got:
I wish my wife what get rid of her vocal cords
I wish my husband would sell his jeep been in garage forever
I wish my boyfriend would get rid of all the underwear he owns. they are all stained and ripped and they smell like balls...but he refuses and said they have character
I wish my wife would get rid of all the f******* clothes that don't fit so I can have room for my s*** Evil chadd
I wish my wife would get rid of her weight lol
My ex still has a 50 gallon garbage can full of Mt. St. Helens ash from the May 18 eruption from when we lived in Yakima. The Dr. in Port Orchard
Today's Video Blog is all about Toppy, BJ, Mono Nick, and Intern Jay's trip to Goldberg's to tackle the Reuben sandwich.
Most of us recognize that Drano is one of the common components in the production of meth... and if you didn't know, now you do. Most of us also recognize that the people who choose to make meth aren't always the brightest minds. Case- in- point, 6 people were arrested in Santa Rosa County for their involvement in making meth at an apartment complex. Thing is, there was a child in the home and that child drank Drano. Why? Because, in spite of a child BEING in the house, these geniuses kept Drano in SIPPY CUPS... the multi- colored, plastic children's cups that all little kids use to drink. The kid is currently in critical condition. While this is an extreme case, everyone has accidentally or unintentionally consumed something because we thought it was something else. Miles smoked crack because a guy he was partying with indicated that they were going to smoke weed. ("Wanna smoke a bowl?") My mother once at pot brownies because she thought they were regular brownies. She had a great night that night. ("Your friends are sooooo funny!") And who hasn't gotten a mouthful of cigarette butts or spit because they thought there was BEER in that beer can? And hell, if you live in Europe (thank you for listening) you only recently discovered that you've been eating as much horse as you have beef. Burger King, IKEA and a truckload of grocery stores there have had to discontinue serving their 'beef' because there's so much horse meat in it. Smoking, eating or drinking: WHAT DID YOU INGEST THAT WASN'T WHAT YOU THOUGHT IT WAS?
Ate a cheeseburger that had acid in it... his friends were hiding it from the cops, but no one told him about it
Thought he was drinking apple juice... it was chicken grease
When she was 3- years- old, she drank an entire bottle of cold sore medication and was in the hospital for months as a result. My question is; who in the family had the cold sores?
His buddy "clean" peed into a 5 Hour Energy Bottle and left it in the car for an upcoming drug test... problem was, he didn't know that minor detail and chugged it
Was in Sunday school ignoring the lesson on fighting temptation... and THAT'S why he ate a chocolate covered Brussel Sprout
Another guy fooled by 'apple juice'... it was Everclear. To be fair, it was in an apple juice container
Thought he was gonna be eating pot brownies, but instead, they were 'shroom brownies... made for an interesting day
Buddy drank bong water because instead of being in a bong, it was in a Big Gulp cup (???)
To clear up his nasal congestion, he squirted some nasal spray... didn't work because he used his eye drops instead
Took a sip of his beer, but there was a wasp in it... stung him under his tongue SEVERAL times before he was able to spit it out
Smoked pot, but didn't know it was laced with PCP
Brushed his teeth with Ben Gay... on the bright side, his gums weren't inflamed
Brushed his teeth with diaper cream... nit very minty
Accidentally popped one of her kid's Ritalin pills... terrible night of sleep, great night of sex
Worst story of the day: at age 6, he drank his grandmother's MENSTRUAL BLOOD!!! This crazy broad was an 'earth first' type and believed that the blood from her monthly visits would help her plants grow in the garden... which may or may not be true... but that's no reason to store it in a GLASS PITCHER IN THE REFRIDGERATOR! Like any 6- year- old, he thought it was Kool- Aid
I'll leave you with that. You're welcome.
Until tomorrow, check your brain and STAY BEAUTIFUL!"
So last weekend was the Oscars and I watched them. I liked the fact that Seth MacFarlane was the host and thought he was funny. Now as I said on the show on Monday I get all sides of the Oscar arguments. I do agree on one hand that it is just a bunch of rich people patting themselves on the back but on the same token we watch all these peoples movies so why would they not want us to watch them get awards. I would also say this that everyone gets a hard time sometimes and some of these people take themselves way too seriously. Look at Daniel Day Lewis (no relation to Ray) he won for best actor and known to be a very serious actor but was he upset with the jokes no he was laughing. Hell the guy was even cracking jokes during his acceptance speech. When I watch shows like that as well I start thinking about what awards I would like to win. I do think a Oscar would be cool since its a gold statue and is very iconic. I would just roll up to clubs and parties and say yeah I am on the list then flash my Oscar and walk in. A Grammy is gold as well but I can't sing so no chance of that one. Another award I would like very much is a peoples choice award not because it is a cool statue but because I like what its about and then I could call myself the Peoples Champ.
Yesterday we read an email from a Rock-A-Holic named Cassie who was having issues with her boyfriend and his Facebook relationship status.
Cassie’s boyfriend is a widower; his wife passed away three years ago and Cassie and him have been together for two years.
To this day, he still hasn’t changed his Facebook relationship status from “widowed” to “in a relationship.”
Every time she brings it up, it turns into a huge fight. He says that the reason he hasn’t changed his status is because he is not ready to answer the questions from his friends and family about their relationship.
She wanted to know if she should be as hurt as offended as she’s feeling or try to be more understanding.
I remember when people used to have to wait a long time after their spouse passed away before they started seeing someone else.
That happened in my family; my dad used to get grief because he moved on to quickly in other people’s eyes and I have a feeling that her boyfriend doesn’t want the same thing to happen to him.
Death is a powerful issue and societal morays are a powerful issue so it makes sense that this is an enormously difficult topic.
It says “till death do us part” and I think it’s ridiculous to be mad at someone who is trying to move on from death. Why would anyone get pissed when you moved on to another relationship at a time where it is “acceptable?”
It’s ludicrous when a family member or friend says they don't like the new person just because they feel like they are “replacing” their lost loved one. They need to realize that expecting a widowed person to stay single forever is a selfish thing. Death sucks, but you need to find a way to get over it; go see a counselor to get through the grieving process.
Nothing infuriates me more than someone who keeps pining over a death. News flash, it happens to everyone! I had to experience it at a young age when I lost my parents.
I'm having a great life, and I'm not going to screw that up over death.
That being said, Cassie shouldn’t be pushing her boyfriend to do something that is painful to him over something of little importance. What she should see is how much he cares about her and that he’s with her, not a stupid Facebook status.
The 18-year-old girl who won Miss Delaware Teen USA this past November has resigned . . . after a porn video of her surfaced online. Melissa King appeared in a video for a website called Girls Do Porn. And in the video, she tells the cameraman she just turned 18, and she's doing it because she needs the money, and there is mention of her doing beauty pageants. A few days ago, she tweeted, quote, "Once you move on in life people shouldn't try to use your past against you. Let them be happy." So it seems she knew this was coming. Melissa grew up in foster care from ages 12 to 18. And her platform for Miss Delaware Teen USA was to help work with and mentor foster kids.
I watched the video, for show prep purposes of course, and I have to say…stick to beauty pageants. She was AWFUL in this video…she was just there…if ya know what I mean…plus any video when you can hear the dude and not the chick is NOT OK with me! I’m guessing her beauty pageant talent is being quiet and acting like it’s not fun…waka waka! I do have to say this…she just took a fast track to Vivid…you know they are going to be knocking on her door to have her star in some fine adult films. Hopefully they get her some “acting” lessons.

Monster.com has put together a great list of the seven bad habits that drive your co-workers crazy.
1. Making an Unreasonable Amount of Noise. You shouldn't listen to music unless you're using headphones, or you're in an actual office. You also shouldn't listen to your voicemail over speakerphone, or talk too loud on the phone in general.
2. Adding Unnecessary Background Noise During a Conference Call. Like when someone has music on, or bangs away on their keyboard without muting their microphone.
3. Being a Source of Strong Smells. Including "good" smells, like perfume, which can be just as bad as something like garlic if you use too much of it.
4. Excessive Chit-Chat. Small talk is fine, just as long as you're not distracting people and preventing them for getting their work done.
5. Doing Anything That Grosses People Out. Which ranges from sneezing and not using a tissue . . . to nose-picking.
6. Physical Contact. Avoid things like hugging, tickling, poking, back rubs, or anything else that might seem creepy.
7. Borrowing Office Supplies Without Asking. In fact, you shouldn't go into someone's desk for ANY reason without asking them first.
Based on this list of the seven bad habits that drive your co-workers crazy…what does your co-worker do that drives you crazy? Or…what do you do that you know annoys your co-workers? Here are the texts we got:
I turn everything into a competition. Every month I try to earn the most production dollars. It annoys my coworkers.
My supervisor's name is Jenny. I do the Forrest Gump version of Jenny on her
I used to purposefully buy ranch corn nuts and crunch them as loudly as possible in my co-workers office area. :)
My co worker Shane pretends hes doing WWE MOVES around the machine shop! Brian da Boz Everett
I walk around my office snapping my fingers consistently, sometimes it gets so bad my coworkers have had to duck tape my hands together
