Victory. Honor. Pride. All These Mean Nothing... If You Don't Have Balls.

I miss a lot of things from my childhood, mostly someone else paying the bills and doing my laundry. I really miss the games we use to play as children, that even though they were painful and alienated others, were perfectly acceptable and fun. My favorite? Dodgeball. Urban Dictionary defines Dodgeball as:

1. A game played most often in middle-school gym class. Usually fun, although often ends up to the social exclusion of nerds, dorks, etc. Can also be very painful to play. Essentially, people throw foam or rubber balls at the people on the other team. If you're hit, you're out,if you catch it, the thrower is out. Usually enjoyed by jocks and athletic people. Nonathletic people, such as myself, always leave the dodge ball field to a stream of boos and "You suck for being a wimp!". It's still damn fun, though. Is currently being banned from many schools.


What's not to love? A game that immediately weens out the weaker beings and allows people to be scarred for life and socially awkward? Sign me up! Hitler probably kicked ass at Dodgeball. This game should not be banned; it should be mandatory until graduation. I think we're making society weaker by trying to teach kids that fighting is not okay and that we're all equal. Have you been on Myspace lately? Even the ugliest mofos think they're rockstars and super models. We can't all be awesome people! It's our differences that make society interesting. If I wouldn't have got picked on for being poor growing up, I probably would suck at fighting and I know I wouldn't be near as witty as I am now. And if I wasn't witty, this blog would suck ass and you'd still be bored. Good Lord, the humanity!


Watch as 1200 people set the Guinness World record for the world's largest Dodgeball game:


And last but not least, here's Southpark's take on this great American pastime.

Please, write a letter to your Senator if you have to, keep this game alive in school. If you outlaw Dodgeball, then only outlaws will have Dodgeballs. I bet they're really good at Dodgeball in Iran. If our kids don't get the necessary training, the terrorists win. So go take a stand America, and grab life by the balls.

Happy President's Day

I Got This Pictures, Images and Photos

The American President is often called the most powerful man in the world. He is the leader of the free world. But without our forefathers stand against the tyranny of Great Britain, being the President of this great country of ours would be meaningless. Thankfully, we had ancestors with the testicular fortitude to stand up against oppression. Let us not as the American people ever forget that, or feel like we have no options against injustice. On this President's Day, I say lets celebrate our country and freedom instead of the position of one man. My good friend Glen Pond said it best when he said he "Believes u should always be proud of your country, but not necessarily your government...."

Republican or Democrat, Liberal or Conservative, never be afraid to stand up and fight for what you believe. "The shepherd drives the wolf from the sheep's throat, for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as his liberator, while the wolf denounces him for the same act, as the destroyer of liberty. Plainly the sheep and the wolf are not agreed upon a definition of the word liberty; and precisely the same difference prevails today among human creatures."- Abraham Lincoln

July 4th, 1776. We may just be due for another uprising. Mosh with me now.

My Mind's Playin' Tricks On Me

What's the best nation in the world? Imagination. Anyone who grew up without siblings can attest to this. I know I passed many a country day in my head. My Legos were buildings and spaceships. My cousin and I hunted tin cans with B.B. guns, but in our mind, we were stalking deer and boar. Every ramp I built was part of some elaborate Evil Knievel stunt or an X-games competition. I tell you one thing, imagination will cure boredom for a lifetime.

Imagination is the vehicle of progress and invention. Where would we be as a society and technology wise without the imagination and motivation of people such as Archimedes, Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein, and Bill Gates? The scary thing is we only use a small part of are brains. If we could ever fully harness the power of our brains there is no limit to what we could accomplish.

So just how strong is the human mind? Can the mind be convinced that objects exist even though we can't see them? We know this to be a fact. Gravity, Wind, and God are all widely excepted theories because people have convinced themselves that they exist based on the way they effect our daily lives and the rhetoric of our peers. Faith is believing without seeing. So in a world where we've become accustomed to believing things simply because someone told us they exist, we may have in fact set ourselves up for failure. To be such a strong organ,the brain is easily tricked...

Isn't that amazing? That clip is by far easily one of the best social and psychological experiments I have ever witnessed. Now witness one of the greatest rap songs ever written:

Sorry, I couldn't do this article without this song. It just fit too well. Man I miss old school rap.

When Circus Performers Get Bored

Ever get bored? What to do, what to do? Play cards? Watch TV? Masturbate? Yeah, me too. But not Henry Rochatin. At 65 years old, he has been entertaining himself and others for 60 years. He was in the circus at age 5, and holds more world records for stunts than anyone else. So when he gets bored, it's never a dull moment.

Friday Night Jam!!!

Return of the Mack!!! With the return of my blog, I bring you the return of Friday Night Jams. For all my new viewers, every Friday I post a song to get your Friday night started right. This Friday starts off right with the new jam by Lil Wayne feat Eminem, Drop the World.

They performed this song to close the Grammys, but you couldn't hear it because they bleeped entire lines due to one or two curse words. To everyone who isn't really in to rap, I love all music and every Friday you never know what you're gonna get, so don't write me off just yet. I hope you all have a great weekend.

All Your Friends Are Doing It

Face it, everyone's on Facebook nowadays. I held out as long as I could, and I actually prefer the ability to customize my Myspace page, but I gave in cause FB is where it's at. Ive been witness to the power of FB lately as its helped me breathe life back into my blog and bring new eyes to it. Almost every famous person, real or fictional, has at least a fan page. So what if some older historical figures had Facebook? Well it may look something like this...

(click on the picture to enlarge it)

I've seen a few others like this. Good stuff.

Personal Protection

Women love new technology. Women hate periods. Thank goodness for the Apple's new I-Pad.

Seems like those heavy flow days could be a bit shocking.

Well I Guess That's Settled

Star Trek or Star Wars? Which one is better? Unless you're a die hard fan, you could probably care less. Me personally, I've never gotten into Star Trek, but I hear good things. Watch as these guys give their take on the age old uber nerd argument.

Never knew those scrolling letters were so dangerous. Always wondered where they went though.

He's Running Over People!!!

To quote one of my favorite football blogs, "Herschel Walker is the Alpha Human." I couldn't have said it better myself. Last Saturday, just weeks shy of turning 48 years old, Herschel undertook a challenge that came under both fire and praise from critics and fans everywhere. Herschel stepped in the ring as an MMA fighter on a major promotion. Some said that he had no business in the ring. Many were upset to see an amateur on Strikeforce, the closest competitor to the UFC. Most were just curious to see if he had it in him. Herschel just wanted to compete in the sport he loves. And he did just that...

While it wasn't the most exciting fight, Herschel dominated his opponent. Critics say he fought a weak opponent. Well no shit Sherlock. This was his first fight. Meanwhile, his opponent had 2 pro fights under his belt. Walker just didn't want this fight to be a circus act like Jose Canseco's was.

Overall, Herschel proved he could compete, even at 47. He brought eyes to a sport that wouldn't normally have watched. He trained like a mad man at one of the top gyms around. He took the fight seriously and dominated his opponent, just like his glory days on the gridiron.

Herschel's trainer, Javier Mendez, said that if Walker started in the sport at 23, he would have become the single greatest mixed martial arts fighter of all-time. He called Walker the second best conditioned trainee ever, next to Cain Velasquez. Cain is considered by many the best conditioned heavyweight in the sport. Walker owned the football field in his day and I for one am happy to see him taking a stab at another sport I love. Will he ever hold a championship? No. But he will win his fights, and he will do everything in his power to prove he's not to be taken lightly. Just ask Bill Bates or Greg Nagy, who our both now "that other guy" in a Herschel highlight film!

A Lasting Impression

I love a good impression. I love Christopher Walken. I love the song Like A Rolling Stone. Watch and enjoy as a friend of mine, Luke Johnson, brings all 3 into harmony.

One day Luke will have his 15 minutes of fame and hopefully much more. I'll be proud to say I know him and brag how he would entertain me and my friends while we played cards. You can say how you saw him here and enjoyed a good laugh. For a more serious side of his music and to truly appreciate and support him, visit his Myspace account here. Catch you on the B side Luke.

UPDATE: Just a small taste of his phenomenal talent:
