The baseball playoffs are in full swing, and you know what that means. Yes, very soon we’re going to hear aging Baby Boomer sportscasters lamenting about how they “snuck their handheld radios into school to listen to the games” when they were kids. No one cares, guys. While you were huddled around a static filled radio, some of us were off getting your girlfriend to go to second base. (Second base is holding hands in public, right? Yeah baybee, I was a STUD) My point is this; real baseball fans will watch the playoffs and the World Series no matter what time the games start, so shut yer pie holes. Oh, and for Halloween I’ve decided I’m going as a slutty shortstop.

Noowwwww!!!” OR Schwarzenegger said Russia is a "gold mine" for foreign investors, but some of the U.S. high-tech executives remain wary about doing business in the corruption-plagued economy. You know, because doing business in our own corruption-plagued economy has gone so smoothly lately.
