This was big on the blogs a few days ago, but anyhow BeenMapped.com seems pretty neat. Basically it lets people mark of interesting things they’ve found on Google Maps so you can browse them.
For example, someone noticed that the Google Map near Boston captured two flying planes and thier shadows on the ocean. Note, you may have to pan the image down and to the right to see the second plane.
Schulte and I agreed to see War of the Worlds today at 3:55. Unfortunately, I was 15 minutes late, so we decided to see Fantastic 4 instead. Neither of us expected either of these movies to be good, it was just something to do.
Well, let me tell you, I have never so regretted not being on time. Fantastic 4 was so awful I was ready to leave the movie after the first fantastic 5 minutes. Schulte and I started in with a usual array of awful jokes. For example: “I hope I can follow this movie, I didn’t even see Fantastic 3.” Boo-yeah. Pretty much the highlight was the fact that Jessica Alba often wore low-cut clothing, which Schulte repeatedly referred to as “the fantastic two”. Other than that, the movie was uninteresting nonsense followed my more ridiculous crap. I think a 10 year old boy might like this movie, but by age 13 or so he would have grown out of it.
So, in case you had some remote thought of ever seeing this movie, even via a rental or illegal download, just get that idea out of your head. It’s really that awful.
This Onion article was great.
According to Oebrick, Michael is fussy during meals and picky about his clothes. When he hurts himself, he “cries like a baby.” Additionally, the toddler has a “very strong attraction” to a stuffed lion with a rainbow-striped mane, an apparent preference for bottle-feeding over breastfeeding, and an evident love for bouncing up and down in his jumper device “like some guy at a club.”
