Dale’s Observations For 2010-06-16

Something fundamental has changed with Mr. Sun. We should probably try to figure out what. It seems…important. http://bit.ly/bIS8RC #

You know, there's so many things wrong with my last tweet that I hardly know where to begin. #

A German student mooned a group of Hell's Angels, then hurled a puppy at them before escaping on a stolen bulldozer. http://bit.ly/aRScnd #

Sea levels aren't the only thing that's rising. #AlGorePickUpLines #

AT&T suspends iPhone 4 pre-orders. If AT&T can't handle the orders, imagine what a disaster USAGE bandwidth will be. http://bit.ly/9fv7dG #

Obama's oil speech, with all the talk about Nobel prizes and PhD's sounded like Fredo from Godfather 2: "I'm smart! I can handle things!" #

Obama's oil speech, with talk of PhDs and Nobel prizes, reminded me of Fredo in Godfather 2: "I'm smart! I can handle things!" #

EU chief warns democracy could disappear in Greece, Spain and Portugal, i.e., Europe would be like it was in the 60's. http://bit.ly/a2Yxld #

The new Honda FR1200F books way better in person than in pics. It also feels really light. Egos are a bit sporty. http://twitpic.com/1x4sxy #

How would you like to sequester some of MY carbon? #AlGorePickUpLines #

Hey, baby, I'd like to open up your lockbox. #AlGorePickUpLines #

This Perez Hilton thing is just insane. Doesn't EVERYBODY know the cops get really upset when you show pictures of a 17 year-old's kitty? #

Yet another Obama administration czar, this time to oversee the oil spill. So, what is it that Obama does, exactly? http://bit.ly/a4BVYQ #

I see via @JonHenke that Grover Norquist joined GOProud. That's faaabulous! in reply to JonHenke #

I've been watching that Etheridge video. Jeebus, if that old man had laid his hands on me, he'd have been making his apology from the ER. #

I got the vandalism damage estimate for my truck. $1,044 damage to the passenger door and window. #

Twitter's incapacity tonight is ticking me off. I can only assume it's all the heathen foreigners tweeting about kickball. #

Wow! We just had an earthquake. The whole house shook. We've been having those a lot lately. I'm pretty sure that's not a good thing. #

AT&T IS BLAMING TUE iPad security leak on "malicious" hackers. As oppposed the helpful hackers we're all so used to. http://bit.ly/9inHEx #

BP has a outlines a plan to contain the oil spill. Well. That's, uh, reassuring. "Milord, I have a cunning plan!" http://bit.ly/9KryyQ #

Seriously, what's the deal with the Japanese and whaling? They LOVE it! It's just…creepy. http://bit.ly/9vvEvt #

Why the EU is ultimately doomed to failure: if Belgium is on the verge of dissolution, how do you unify a continent? http://bit.ly/ddfAVm #

Knock-knock.
Who's there?
IRS.
IRS who?
The Internal Revenue Service. #failedjokes #

As far as #worldcup soccer goes, any sport so boring they take commercial breaks without stopping the on-field "action" isn't worth watching #

Who keeps digging holes in my back yard? I may never know… http://twitpic.com/1vuezk #

May retail sales declined 1.2%, against expectations of a 0.2% rise. And it's across the board, as ex-auto sales were down 1.1%. #

If you think AT&T's data network sucks now, wait 'til iPhone 4 users start streaming HD video. Or trying to, anyway. http://bit.ly/aSR1zb #

Obama kills the mortgage interest deduction in the 2011 budget. Drowning kittens in a sack would be more popular. http://bit.ly/cIF2xE #

Jebus Cripes, how is it that we here in California keep sending this dolt back to Senate?! http://bit.ly/crJxdd #

The whole point of uaving a CEO is so the board doesn't have to oversee every decision. #

Gibbs to press: O hasn't spoken to BP CEO 'cuz the board has to approve the CEO's decisions. Pure BS. Corporations aren't run that way. #

Dale’s Observations For 2010-06-09

The Mortgage Bankers Association reports that new mortgage apps were down another 5.7% last week, and 43% since April. http://bit.ly/aWxOJH #

In the near future, links will no longer count against your 140 character limit, as Twitter unveils new changes over the summer. #

Another troubling analysis of Turkey. They are reverting to the Ottoman Empire–and an Islamist one, to boot. http://bit.ly/cZWCYS #

Stupid Californians have voted to allow open primaries, where the election will pick the top 2 vote-getters to run in the general election. #

Looks like Chuck Devore in the CA senate primary is getting hammered by Carly Fiorina, who did such a bang-up job as the CEO of HP. #

Hallmark makes a space-themed greeting card that uses the term "black holes". NAACP screams "racism!" Hallmark cowers. http://bit.ly/9cvzny #

Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk) Is all conservation-y and stuff. But he drives a 7 MPG Navistar CXT. http://twitpic.com/1v1so6 #

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke says there will be no double-dip recession. So, there probably will be. http://bit.ly/acldZl #

Obama to graduates: Don't make excuses…although it's OK to mention that George W. Bush is the culprit for everything. http://bit.ly/cGo8Cc #
