Several Subjects

1) My wife went to visit her friend in Minneapolis over the weekend so it was just me and the boys. We had a good time. Our main staples were pancakes, waffles, and pizza.

2) We are approaching 50 days this year over 100 degrees in Austin. The weather the past week has been nothing short of ridiculous. On my training ride on Friday all I wanted to do was curl up under a guardrail and die. It is just brutal.

3) My new favorite show MANswers has done a scientific study to determine which animal is most like having sex with a woman. The answer - the Dugong. Apparently they were favorites of ancient sailors. Let me get this straight, it is like having sex with a woman, but without the complaining?? What is the downside? HA!

Here is #5 on the List of "Top 5 Retro Superhero Cartoon Introductions."

I have no luck with the ladies right now... maybe I should move to Australia to find me a dugong.

Underdog was pimped... still is!

Zach, while I agree with you that UD was the cartoon bomb, you have to get a little excited about the Hong Kong Fooey video. I'll assume UD will be later! The Butthole Surfers version

Nice topic Chris, as Blue said eewwwww! LOL...

I couldn't imagine "living" in those temps. Are you in hurricane lane? I see that the season is brewing....good luck and please don't curl up under a guardrail!

1. This explains #3. Enjoy your waffles boys.
2. Bummer. Might want to move a little further north. Like MI. Just a thought.
3. Who asks questions like that?

Hong Kong was cool but I actually was a big fan of Lancelot Link Secret Chimp. And he was real!

I'd have to disagree with oldman in the previous comment. Don't move to Michigan!! You might have really hot temps there this summer, but we get really cold temps for 5 - 6 months out of the year. Now that sucks. If you curl up under that guardrail next time...can I have your bike? LOL!!

1) Foods of the gods.
2) You can come back here; temps this week are staying near 70 in most locations.
3) There is no substitute. And I think it is time to find you some better TV for viewing.

Chris: Jahowie is right; 5 months of cold. And you know how much I bitch about it. But even he can't deny the summers here are pretty darn sweet.
But 100+? Man, I don't think I can take too much of that. Even Minneapolis' cold sounds better than that.
70 in February is pretty sweet though. I will plan to be down there for "training camp" next year if you will let me! :^ )

I can't believe someone actually got paid to study that. And, what about the dudes who got to "sample" and make notations of their findings. That's just weird.

Glad you're enjoying the man time! I'm sure your wife had a lovely weekend.

Zach - you should give the Dugongs a go. They are kind of cute when you really look.

Mallie - I don't think I know the Butthole Surfers version. I will have to check it out.

Fat Lad - I will take his word for that.

Blue - temps still suck. I am moving to Iowa.

Lilly - I live too far inland to be at a real threat from hurricanes.

Oldman - I have never heard of Lancelot. How old are you dude??

Jahowie - it's yours!

Eclectchick - there is still lots of time this year!

Sydney - try self hypnosis

Rick - constant 70 degrees is why everone wants to live there in the first place.

Betty - don't sweat the competition!

Donald - agreed. HKP was underrated as a super hero.

Chatterbox - I think they use the term "study" loosely.
