Good Idea: Great Cell Reception Indoors

It's always been annoying that a device that (usually) works so well inside, can suck on toast when you bring inside. I read an article from Tom's Hardware about an upcoming family of products that finally lets you use your phone in the location where man has been trying to spend more time in thousands of years --- inside. The product from SignalWide is essentially a glorified repeater. It takes the crap signal you'd usually be getting from your carrier and amplifies it so your phone can get more than one bar. The product also works in reverse, which lets your phone throttle down its output power and lets the battery last longer. Pricing isn't available yet, so I'm sure that will determine how helpful SignalWide will be with more people ditching their landlines.

Environmental Speed

I never thought that a sports car could be economical, but the Lotus Elise proves it's possible. It gets 22 mpg city and 29 mpg on the highway so you won't feel too bad passing all those Prius Assholes as you go 0 to 60mph in under 5 seconds. All for a very cheap (sports car) price of $42,990. I now have something to work back to work.

It Feels Sooo Good to Help Others

I recently found out how good it can feel to help out others in need. A couple months ago a lovely piece of jail bait knocked on my door. She was selling magazines so that she could get something to improve her life...blah blah blah. When I saw that I could get a two year subscription to Penthouse for only $30, I knew I had to help. The 4 to 8 weeks of waiting is over, and now, every time I look some shaved beaver, I know I did something to help someone, and it feels great!

It's Fucking Ret@#$ed

Censorship of radio lyrics has gone to fucking ret@#$ed lengths recently. First up we have the Black Eyed Peas with their hit song "Let's Get Retarded." You may have never heard about this song because the censored radio friendly version is "Lets Get It Started". The lyrics of the original song even state:

In this context, there's no disrespect

So changing the name of the song is in fact ret@#$ed. Another example of stupidity replacing policy is Eminem's latest song "Shake That". I now present to you an unedited sample of the lyrics:

Some girls they act retarded
Some girls are bout it bout it
He said he wants a slut, hope you don't mind
I told him how you like it from behind

Now the edited version:

Some girls they act r--
Some girls are bout it bout it
He said he wants a ---, hope you don't mind
I told him how you like it from behind

Doggy Style okay as long as it isn't with a slut, but they can't say ret@#$ed! That's fucking insane! That's why I'm done with testicle radio and sticking to Sirius!
