V-Day 2012

So Saturday Night there is the Event that sounds pretty cool I missed it last year also But don't feel like dressing up or trying to get home from it late at night... Plus don't feel like being the creepy single guy with the Camera... ARGh.... But I think things like that and like Prom Of the dead.. Are great if you are part of a couple or a lovely single chick... Or one who is single that night...HA....

Won't be Negative about the V-Day not Victory day that is what the two fingers use to mean not Peace... Not sure what I'm going to do... I know I want part of it to be seeing the 3D Phantom Menace not sure how much better it can really be It will be fun..... Maybe a trip back to Cantina Loco and just a few Pomogrante Margaritas?

Now I would love to find a huge Box of Chocolate that comes with a cool stuffed Dragon... But doubt they make that or that I could find it.. So maybe a tiger?

To me the videos all the same song different versions are kinda about heart break? But good song...... more after the videos....

What the young people know this Bang Bang song from Kill Bill what a great movie...... But that has nothing to do with this post or maybe it does a bit?



Cher doing Bang Bang



Bang Bang by the Recounteurs little different then the original .. But pretty cool....



So V-day is Tuesday and Glee is having their V-day show that night so maybe I should just get stuff that day? But this brings up a question... Is it wrong to want to Have a 3 some with Santana and Britney? How about with the actors.... How about when 90210 was on (not the new version where real teens are the actors) and the kids where played by adults... Its funny lost the new version somewhere and Jenny Garth isn't as Pure white as she was on the original but she still looks just the same and is hot as fuck still............

I'm not going to ... But there is a part of me that says just look up the back of artvoice..... Do they even still run ads? But with all the stuff (and all sad) in the news lately with that poor girl in the tote is it even worth it...

I just want to have a Spartacus inspired orgy :) As much fun as it would be... I don't even have close to enough Purse for that...... Plus some of the guys are as big as my arm :)..... So that can be demotivational .... Maybe some Rainbow Party (if they are even real?) HA... Is a guy Short...HA

Seriously though I'm going to try and enjoy it...

Cantina Loco

  1. Ok I admit since I don't have any pictures it isn't a real review since I can't prove what I got
  2. I've been meaning to go for some time
  3. Other peeps have mentioned it was good....
  4. It was nice to see (e:TK) sorry somehow from you tasting post I missed you worked there
  5. I meant to go there this past weekend but some how with DVR and sports that is why no pix
  6. Nice to have a sit down place
  7. I got a Burrito and didn't know how to attack it ... It was open and does one eat the leaf is it edible ...... I had some of it
  8. (e:Jason) is correct (via facebook) they do have good Margaritas .... First one seemed small but the next two didn't seem small the seasonal (pomogranate) was very good....
  9. The art work on the face book page is from the bar.... after 3 drinks wasn't going to try a 4th...
  10. Want to go back..... and try the tacos.... Liked that the guy admitted the tacos where small and you might want to get two.... Next time that might be what I try
  11. looks nice inside if I where going on a date (yeah right) seems like a nice place to be
  12. again can't rate the bar since I didn't go to the bar
  13. Yes I would go back again
  14. Oh cost wise it is right in line with like Lloyd's but of course Lloyd's and other taco places don't have alcohol and they don't wait on you or have a person at the desk thing.....

Overweight For e:tinypliny



So saw this article in the Buffalo news and thought it was post worthy.....

Now not sure if philosophy is the best cat. for this but I think it fits....
More means less on boats under new weight rules
By Charity Vogel
NEWS STAFF REPORTER
Published:
January 21, 2012, 10:30 PM


Updated: January 22, 2012, 8:12 AM

Put down those chips and that 32-ounce soda and listen up. The federal government thinks we're all getting ... heavier.

An average of 25 pounds heavier, as a matter of fact.

That's the bad news. The good news?

They're trying to keep us from sinking -- or crashing, or plummeting to the ground -- because of it.

This winter, the U.S. Coast Guard -- using federal figures for typical male and female weights around the country -- announced that a new number will be used as the "assumed average weight" for people riding on some types of passenger boats.

The old weight allowance was 160 pounds.

Now, the Coast Guard figures folks average out to about 185 pounds apiece.

The change -- made in December, and being implemented now -- is the first one in assumed weights on such boats in decades.

"This is the first change like this I can remember happening," said Ryan Hayhurst, vice president of Buffalo Harbor Cruises, which operates tours on the "Miss Buffalo."

That's not to say Hayhurst is entirely surprised, either.

"The public is the public," he said, with a laugh. "I'm trying to look at the positive side of it."

But before fluttering with offended dignity, consider this: Local tour operators in Western New York -- and others whose jobs have to do with how much the public weighs -- said that people do seem to be heavier than they used to be.

"My balloon is rated for 10 passengers, but I usually fly 8, max, because people are bigger," said Sean Quigley, owner and chief pilot of the hot-air balloon touring company "Balloons Over Letchworth."

Quigley needs to ask people their weight when booking balloon rides in his seasonal May-to-October business, in order to calculate the physics that will allow for lift-off. He said he has developed a strategy that permits people to preserve their modesty while still answering the question.

"I ask everybody their weights on the phone. But I ask combined weights," said Quigley, who has run the business since 1987. "That lets the lady off the hook."

He chuckled.

"I've had people who are 300 pounds before. I've had people who refuse to tell me; then I tell them, 'You can't fly. This is FAA regulations,'" Quigley said.

Another area where weight matters is with elevators.

Elevators and weight

In the City of Buffalo, where he inspects a good many of the city's 3,000 elevators on a regular basis, Chief Elevator Inspector Joe Schiavone said that elevators have maximum weights, but that such figures are calculated in pounds, not persons. (Some of the inspections are contracted out by the city.)

"The elevator industry, it's the total weight," said Schiavone, who has been doing his job for 26 years.

That means, he said, that as Americans get heavier, elevators can still carry the same amount of pounds up and down.

It just translates to fewer actual people.

"Twenty-five years ago, it would take nine or 12 people to overload a car," said Schiavone. "Now it takes less, because people are bigger. Because people are larger, you're going to overload the car with less people -- quick."

Schiavone put it this way: "An elevator that used to take 10 people, now, with the obesity problem in America, it takes six people."

But don't worry, Schiavone said. The elevator will let you know if a load gets too heavy.

"When it exceeds the capacity," the inspector said, "an alarm bell will go off."

Quigley, at "Balloons Over Letchworth," said his customers tend to be middle-aged and older, because of the price of tickets for balloon rides.

That may play into the situation as well, he said.

"Let's face it, when somebody's in their 40s, they weigh 20 pounds more than when they were in their 20s," Quigley said, joking. "Including me."

At the same time as boaters are recalibrating loads to accommodate heavier people, one airline is redesigning airplane cabins to fit more -- not fewer -- people.

Southwest Airlines announced last week that it is reconfiguring the cabins of its 737-700s with thinner, less-tilty seats that will allow for 6 additional passengers per flight.

Increasing weights of typical Americans were not really a factor in the redesign, said a Southwest spokeswoman at the airline's Dallas headquarters.

Airline adding seats

But, said Brandy King, the renovated cabins may actually be more comfortable for all types of passengers now.

"The thinner seats, in combination with the pitch and incline being less, allows us to add six more passengers, so that takes us from 137 to 143 [per flight]," King said. "But there won't be a difference [in comfort]. There might actually be more room, because were using (a different) design. Your personal space will actually be better."

At the Buffalo station of the Coast Guard, officers said that the changeover is going smoothly.

Coast Guard personnel said that most boaters have been happy to comply, typically by reducing the maximum occupancy for their vessels.

"A lot of the mariners out there agree -- America is getting heavier," said Lt. Andrew Sweeney, chief of the inspections division of U.S. Coast Guard Sector Buffalo. "It's kind of hard to argue that one."

Some boat operators are opting to have their vessel's stability calculations retested, to see if they can handle the same number of passengers, the Coast Guard officers stated.

At Buffalo Harbor Cruises, Hayhurst said that those are the two options open to his tour boat -- and that's a bit frustrating.

He said the weight guidelines really apply more to smaller boats, which are more affected by per-person poundage. For bigger boats like the Miss Buffalo, he said, a few extra pounds on individual passengers doesn't make too much of a difference.

"When it comes down to the weight issue, it's more of an umbrella rule," Hayhurst said. "The weight of a passenger affects a smaller boat much more than a larger boat. Our boat is so large, but we unfortunately fall into the same guideline, and it doesn't really affect us at all."

"There's no way out of it," he added. "The only way out of it is a very expensive way."

Miss Buffalo limit cut

That expensive way would be having a naval architect do load-testing on the Miss Buffalo to prove that the boat can handle more pounds. Hayhurst said there are no such recalibration businesses in Western New York, so he'd have to take the boat out of the area for the tests, which would be "very costly."

Thus, in part as a response to the Coast Guard change, the Miss Buffalo's capacity will be trimmed to 185 this season, Hayhurst said.

The boat has been operating at a capacity of 200.

Small price increases will be made to the hourly rates for cruises, Hayhurst said, "just to absorb a little bit of that change."

But there may be bright sides to the change.

"People might be more comfortable in the long run," he said. "With 185, it'll be little bit roomier, the bathrooms will be better, the bars will be better.

"We'd rather have 185 happy customers," he said, "than 200 unhappy customers."

..... This isn't really about Health..... Yes health is an issue.... But people over time have gotten Taller and bigger... This does tie into health also.... But maybe this is a good thing? Maybe now with people getting bigger those chairs at movies and sports events will in the future be made more comfortable so that everyone has more space and more room.... But who knows.....

Article on Facebook sadness



I don't post many articles on here but this is one I thought I should... Anyone who has been to even lets say a dating site or a site where pictures are rated knows that there is a way to take pictures so that certain things are shown off and certain things can be hidden..... Well if it is Facebook or Myspace or some site where you write a blog You only get the perspective of the person they are showing.... Not as much here or other blog sites but most out looks are positive.... Party Pictures lots of smiling .... Fun Events.... It isn't pictures of the women laughing who ripped out their heart .... Or even the crappy job they have.... So yes it often looks like people have this perfect life.... So I do agree with this article ..... So I say play games on facebook?

Facebook: Friends' Happy Pictures Make You Sad?

Facebook: Friends' Happy Pictures Make You Sad? (ABC News)
There are plenty of reasons to feel down in today's fast-paced, hectic world, and you wouldn't think that the world's most popular social networking site would be one of them. But that's exactly what a new study by Utah Valley University has found.
According to the study, Facebook is making us sad. Why? It's all about the kinds of pictures people to post on their pages.
Facebook photos generally depict smiling, cheerful people having good times, conveying a sense of happiness. Of course everyone likes to smile for the camera, so that good cheer may be inflated or false. As others view the photos, they may believe this conveyed sense of intense happiness is real, making them think that their friends are much happier than they are.
Sociologists Hui-Tzu Grace Chou and Nicholas Edge said they interviewed 425 students, asking them whether they agreed or disagreed with such statements as "Many of my friends have a better life than me," and "Life is fair."
They also asked about the students' Facebook usage, including how many "friends" they had on the site, and how many of those friends were really people they knew.
After controlling for race, gender, religious beliefs and whether the volunteers were unattached or in a relationship, the researchers saw a pattern: The more time students spent on Facebook, the more they thought others had it better than they did.
"Those who have used Facebook longer agreed more that others were happier, and agreed less that life is fair, and those spending more time on Facebook each week agreed more that others were happier and had better lives," wrote Chou and Edge. "Furthermore, those that included more people whom they did not personally know as their Facebook "friends" agreed more that others had better lives."
The study, which was published in the journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior and Social Networking, also found that people who spent less time socializing with friends in cyberspace and more time socializing with them in real life were less likely to report they were unhappy.
So if you are looking for a way to cheer yourself up, the researchers say you may do well to log off Facebook. Call your best friend instead.

Best Buy!ARGH.. Warrantes ARGH

So Don't like to write about people who aren't me but Warranties are something I wrote about before in the past and how they are kinda stupid... Yes they do help people but in terms of a camera you might be covered but it snows to much and you aren't covered....

Here is the issue My Sis bought a computer some kind of dell with monitor and printer it is a wireless printer so no USB cord... Really that cheap that it doesn't come with a USB cord...ARGH! In any event she gets Kasp... how ever you spell it and the extra warranty from best buy.... So we go out there today cause she has the from what I've heard nasty windows 7 virus and guess what virus isn't covered the people with the virus protection I guess hung up on her..................... $200... What?! Sounds like a scam to me.... Who has $200 when how much would a new tower be maybe you could find a decent one for 300-400? Again it just isn't right... If you make something and you charge people just fix it......................

Now she does have a friend who has a Brother who knows about computers she might take it to Rochester but not sure what she will do.... But I think Best Buy should just fix it.... If they give you software that doesn't do what it is supposed that kinda puts them at fault .... Yes I get it you have to pay the geek squad people in every store... But pass part of the cost onto the virus people?
