Cool custom table gif of the day

Now that is a cool table. But with my luck it would jam somewhere halfway and be like figuring out a Rubik's Cube to fix it.

Whoa Nellie!!!

Johnny F'n Football!!!
A&M may have lost to Alabama 49-42 today. The Crimson Tide may have run up 35 unanswered points on a overmatched Aggies defense at home. But the 2nd largest crowd ever at Kyle Field were treated to some of the greatest plays in Aggie history by Johnny F'n Football. 

Too bad he had a Pick 6 and another INT in the end zone that led to a touchdown. Too bad the Aggie defense couldn't stop Bama from gaining double digits on every play. A&M came very close to pulling off the upset again.

It was a classic game that sealed a new rivalry in the SEC. Just how close was it? After the game, Nick Saban told Kevin Sumlin: "You just took 10 years off my life."

The full plays:

Well, ain't that just dandy

WASHINGTON (AP) — The income gap between the richest 1 percent and the rest of America last year reached the widest point since the Roaring Twenties.

The top 1 percent of U.S. earners collected 19.3 percent of household income in 2012, their largest share since 1928. And the share held by the top 10 percent of earners last year reached a record 48.2 percent.

The new data shows that the top 1 percent of earners experienced a sharp drop in income during the recession, of about 36 percent, and a nearly equal rebound during the recovery of roughly 31 percent. The incomes of the other 99 percent plunged nearly 12 percent in the recession and have barely grown — a 0.4 percent uptick — since then. Thus, the 1 percent has captured about 95 percent of the income gains since the recession ended.

Madness



They remove a child from the home because the parents smoke out after the kid is asleep? This is beyond outrageous. But we are far from done. While the parents are "being rehabilitated" CPS murders their daughter.

Isn't it time to remove the moral stigma from recreational pot smokers? The War on Drugs is a failed concept.

Things I Learned From Flight Sims

"Basic Flying Rules: Try to stay in the middle of the air. Do not go near the edges of it. The edges of the air can be recognized by the appearance of ground, buildings, sea, trees and interstellar space. It is much more difficult to fly there."


This video is a textbook case of flying into the edge of the envelope. He should have aborted his path at the 3:00 mark but he didn't and at that point his confidence overrode his ability and signed their death warrant. At the very least he should have known he was in serious trouble. He had a second chance to circle and climb over the lake 40 seconds later, but he didn't take it. Overconfidence again. Instead he pushes onward with a heavy aircraft in high alt and climbing terrain.

When he finally does decide to abort and circle 2 minutes later, it's too late. He's too low, too heavy and too slow. Sir Isaac Newton wins. The video was found by hikers 3 years later.

Never, ever think you or your passenger are immune to the laws of physics. It will kill you both every time.

Worst Twerk Fail EVER


Here are some lessons we can take away from this experience:
Do not twerk near an open flame.
Do not twerk on or near a door.
Do not twerk if your roommate is just going to run away screaming when you accidentally light yourself on fire.
Do not twerk.
