Did she really say that?

     I was reading this morning's Inside Radio (2/22/10) with great interest when I came across this article....FCC: Broadcasters hit hard in Haiti; lessons to be used stateside.  In the article the FCC International Bureau Chief Mendel De La Torre is quoted.  The quote is this...."Broadcasters suffered the most."  This is in reference to the recent earthquake in Haiti.  No seriously, that's what it says.  Really?  Someone please tell me that's out of context because I fail to see out of all of the suffering I have seen on telelvision and read in the newspapers that somehow broadcasters suffered more than anyone. 

A Few Things To Ponder Today

 

1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.  

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong. 
 

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. 
 
 
4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.  

5. How in the world are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet? 
 

6. Was learning cursive really necessary? 
 

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood. 
 

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died. 
 

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired. 
 

10. Bad decisions make good stories. 
 
 
11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.  

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray DVDs? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again. 
 

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to. 
 

14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this --ever. 
 

15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Damn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and runaway? 
 

16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste. 
 

17. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call. 
 

18. My 4-year old son once asked me in the car, "Dad what would happen if you ran over a ninja?" How the heck do I respond to that? 
 

19. I think the freezer deserves a light as well. 
 

20. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay. 
 

Palindrome

A palindrome reads the same backwards as forward. This video reads
the exact opposite backwards as forward.  Not only does it read the
opposite, the meaning is the exact opposite.

This is only a 1 minute, 44 second video and it is brilliant.   Make
sure you read as well as listen..forward and backward.

This is a video that was submitted in a contest by a 20-year old.
The contest was titled "u @ 50"  by  AARP.. This video won second
place. When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and
broke into spontaneous applause.  So simple and yet so brilliant. Take
a minute and watch it.
