Just some random thoughts today

Who are the Batman Villains?

For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out who were all of the Batman Villains while waiting in line for the Batman 3 movie last night. Of course there was The Joker, Penguin and Riddler. Who am I missing? Catwoman?

The Joker

The original Joker was played by Ceaser Romero in the Batman television series. Jack Nickolson played the Joker in the first Batman movie and now Heath Ledger plays the latest villain.

The Penguin

The original Penguin was played by Burgess Meredith in the TV series and later by Danny Devito in the movie.

The Riddler

Frank Gorshin portrayed the Riddler on TV and Jim Carrey in the movie.

Catwoman

Julie Newmar was the Catwoman in the Batman television series. Machelle Pfeiffer was Catwoman in Batman Returns.

Debbie Clemens Probed About HGH

Debbie and Roger Clemens

Did Debbie Clemens take HGH to get ready for the 2003 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit photo? I don’t believe that she did — and if she did — it would not have any effect on her killer body which takes years to obtain.

But there was evidence provided that suggests that HGH may have been around the time of the photo shoot and it is causing additional probing into this Clemens’ fiasco. Now I don’t want to be anal about this, but the NY Daily News reported that,

According to the sources, the timing of the shipment to Clemens’ home coincides roughly with the dates when Clemens’ wife, Debbie, used human growth hormone in preparation for her participation in a pictorial in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.

The real issue here is do you believe that Debbie Clemens used HGH or did she get that way from working out hard?

Miss USA Trips — Again

What’s up with Miss USA always tripping and falling on their butt? For a repeat performance, Miss USA, Crystle Stewart tripped at the Miss Universe pageant in Vietnam.

What’s even worse, after slipping on too-long gown, she gets up with great poise and claps. No shame at all.

The Evil Trash I Talk About

Toyota Prius is Still Ugly — Even With Solar Panels

IMO, the Toyota Prius is one ugly car.  I don’t care if it gets 100 MPG or 200 MPG, ugly is ugly.  So who cares if Toyota is adding solar panels to power the air conditioner?

As soon as Honda or some other car manufacture introduces a competing hybrid with an ascetically pleasing looks, the sales on the best selling Prius will plummet.

What really bugs me is that there is no mention that the solar panels will recharge the battery while sitting in the parking lot all day long while you’re at work.  Now that would be cooler than the air conditioner.  Perhaps then I would buy a Prius, especially if I didn’t have to toss my cash down the drain to some oil company.

4th of July — Hamburgers, Hotdogs, Apple Pie, Corn on the Cob, and Fireworks

July 4th, 2008. A time to celebrate the birth of an experiment over two hundred years ago. Of course we celebrate it by gorging ourselves with hamburgers, hot dogs, apple pie, corn on the cob and fireworks and avoid the true sacrifice of Democracy.

Ah… the American Dream of over abundance and shameful indulgence. A bankrupt nation where the rich politicians ship jobs over sea to the lowest bidder. A nation without representation unless you’re a multinational corporation.

Our country will experience the eye-opening fate the Russians experienced the past decade when the “wall came down” only to find that their government lied to them and the sacrifice they paid dearly for a bad experiment in dictatorship.

Like the communists, our government has become the brutal dictatorship we’ve feared that ignores laws set forth over 200 years ago to protect the democracy of the people. How many more wars, torture, and espionage against private citizens of this country before our eyes are opened to the truth that we’re no better than the Soviets.

It will be a painful day when this revelation happens. But before it happens, our leaders will rape and pillage every last ounce of wealth out of the citizens by deflating the dollar and inflating unwarranted oil prices.

It may be a warm July 4th, 2008, but wait until this winter when oil hits $300 per barrel and you can’t afford to heat your home or drive to work. Wait until there are no groceries in the market cause no one can afford to deliver them. Prepare, because this is the Democracy we paid for.

Today is July 4th. A time to celebrate an illusion of democracy with hamburgers, hot dogs, apple pie, corn on the cob. And fireworks, the world has yet to see in modern history.

Where’s the Beef Recall?

I’m not worried about the beef recall simply because I don’t eat meat.  It was a conscious decision I made over a year ago never to eat beef again.   All for the better.

But what about you?  Why are you still eating meat when you run the risk of getting E. Coli or even worse, Mad Cow’s Disease?

Just to be fair, we vegetarians had a spinach scare last year, and a recent outbreak on tomatoes.  But if you wash your veggies there’s very little risk.

Try that with ground beef.  I guess you can burn it to crisp to kill all the critters, but then try eating the piece of leather.
