Have you been keeping up with that horrible tragedy with the Cruise ship that crashed in Italy…29 people are still missing. As I am reading about this story, there was one thing that made me scratch my head for the sheer ridiculousness. Apparently there was a magic show going on when the crash happened…and the Magician was in the middle of sawing a woman in half when the crash occurred…so what did he do? He disappeared!!! Yes…he bolted from the show…leaving the woman in the box!!!! Worst magician ever. He must have learned how to be a hero from the ship’s captain, who apparently abandoned ship right after the crash. Wow.
Rough loss for the Donkey’s…our 6 game unbeaten streak came to an end, as my hockey team…the Tacoma Donkey’s lost 7-4. I started off the game playing like crap, but started playing better…hell…I played with balls…literally:

Yes, that is my cup. Proof that A. A protective cup is important. And B. You have to have a screw loose to be a goalie. My bud Yev from the other team wound up with a slap shot, and I went down to make the save…and I saved it all right…with my boys! It was funny, after the shot I looked down to see where the puck was, and could not find it…I was scared that it trinkled in the net, and the pain of having my boys shoot up through my stomach was for nothing…but then after a few seconds…the puck dropped between my legs…yes, the puck was stuck in the cup for a few moments! Wow. My buddy Andy then sent me this video:


 
According to a new survey, HALF of people age 18 to 34 say they're regularly asked for tech help by friends and family. So 1 in 3 people pretend to not to have as much knowledge as they do…so they don't have to help. It’s not just a "selfish generation" thing -- 26% of people age 35 to 49 also pretend they don't have the tech skills to help their family and friends sometimes.
So 1 in 3 people pretend they don’t have much knowledge as they do, so they don't have to help others…what about you… what is something that you are skilled at, that when people find out, they ask for your help? Here are the texts we got:

The number of accidents involving people wearing headphones has tripled since 2004. Now…the numbers are still small, but it looks like a growing trend. In 2004, there were 16 cases where pedestrians wearing headphones were hit by cars or trains and injured or killed. Last year, there were 47. This only counted cases where people were listening to music through headphones, not cases where people were talking on their phones. Overall, 68% of the victims were male, 67% were under 30, and 70% died. In 29% of the cases, reports said that the victim didn't hear horns or sirens before the crash.
The number of accidents involving people wearing headphones has tripled since 2004…so we want to know…What is the most ridiculous way you got hurt, or got into an accident? Here are some of the texts we got:

Seattle Drivers in 2 inches of snow
That had me laughing so hard. I watch that same scene every time we have some snow...what's funniest of all is when I drive by in my lil Honda Accord (with front wheel drive) and see all these big 4x4s stuck in ditches or not being able to get up gradual hills. Regular cars with bad tires are the funniest of all...spin spin spin and go nowhere. Thanks for this video...it gave me such a great laugh at the expense of others.
