I got the six

Gimme your nine. Yeh, that's dirty, but it popped up on my iPod today, so there.

At work tonight, and wondering who Obama is going to pick as his running mate. So I went to Not his Website. Yikes. He's a foreigner!

Sorry I disappeared for a while there. Too distraught over Bigfoot hoax. And busy as hell at home. My Google Reader RSS inbox has been filling up, and I have a lot of Starred Stuff to blog on. If I had the time. Been getting ready for new semester of graduate classes, so I can earn a degree in Enviro Sciences and help solve the world's problems (and more importantly, get a master's to hang next to my wife's big fancy master's degree).

One particular story out there got me thinking of AC/DC, as in "I'm on a Highway to Hell." (Which, by the way, uses the "N word" in the third line. Funny that never gets edited out on the radio). Discuss ...

Back to the story, which says that Oregon is finally going to take advantage of those hot asphalt highways. The state, using state engineers and builders, is going to turn a section of sun-soaked highway right-of-way into a solar collector. Good idea. Somebody get over to Oregon and stop them! This is bad for Oil Barons everywhere!

You might say those Oregonians are "Highway Stars" (Best covered by Metal Church ).

It's good to see some innovation like this come out of the U.S. Seems like a good way to light street lights. Charge up the batteries during the day. Light the lights at night. Hope nobody steals the batteries.

Unlike, this project has its own URL,

Bummer, it was all a hoax

Fox News, slightly more believable than a geocities page, says the Bigfoot Find was a Big Ass Hoax.,2933,406101,00.html

Seems it was done for money.

" owner Tom Biscardi paid an "undisclosed sum" to Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer, the two Georgia men who say they found the body, for their frozen corpse and the privilege of trotting them out in front of TV cameras."

And the dead Sasquatch in the freezer was a costume. The maker of the costume recognized it.

"That jibes with what Jerry Parrino, owner of Internet Halloween-costume retailer, told last week.

"It definitely looks like our [Sasquatch] costume," Parrino said after viewing photos of the body."

Looks like we'll never know the secrets of Bigfoot. At least not yet. Environmental movement continues ...

I Not Dead

I love this. Bigfoot has been found. Bigfoots, plural. One body, and a family of other man-apes.

From CNN:

"Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer, a pair of Bigfoot-hunting hobbyists from north Georgia, say they found the creature's body in a wooded area and spotted several similar creatures that were still alive.


DNA tests on the body have begun, said the statement, and "extensive scientific studies" will be done on the body by scientists, including a molecular biologist, an anthropologist and a paleontologist."

Does Bigfoot hold the key to solving the global warming crisis, our addiction to oil, the war in Georgia? Probably not, but some BF hunters from Georgia (U.S.) say they have found "his body."

No doubt. Bigfoot has been writing books for years. "I Not Dead" is his best yet.

The New York Times (yes!) has more.

Runnin with the devil!

Winds of Change

I can hear Klaus Meine whistling the tune. I'm back from the woods and out to change the world. It takes time, and contacts, and networking.

Meanwhile, I'm looking at a new camper. Went out last night and found a nice long one. Perfect. Expensive. New. Outdoor speakers!

But I really wonder about the carbon footprint of this trailer. No I don't. Trailers are one of the last great products still made in America. And I'll be damned if my kids become nature-deprived. I'll still looking for a used one, though. To lower my credit footprint.
