If You Haven't Registered, Please Do!

There have been many historical political upheavals around the world recently. Some of them peaceful, some of them violent. For those of us fortunate enough to live in a country in which the vote of the citizens are taken seriously, it is important as citizens to vote. If you vote, as far as I am concerned, you are allowed to complain and gripe about your government as often you want. If you don't vote, shut up.

If you live in the U.S. and are not registered to vote, you can start here to find information. You can also take a look at ProjectVote. For readers outside of the U.S. a few minutes on a search engine should turn up some local election information. There is an "www.elections.org.XX" where "XX" represents your local country code. Give that a shot, hopefully it will turn up some useful data. If you have links to specific places that you want to share, please post them in the comments.

Even if you have registered, make sure your address is correct. Some laws also require you to be registered with one of the major U.S. parties in order to vote in primary elections. Since the concept of voting has been around, corrupt people attempted to manipulate those votes. Make sure everything is in order, and get ready for your next election.

I will re-post this reminder once a month until the upcoming November elections in the U.S. After that, it will be a monthly post. It is important that each citizen exercise their rights and responsibilities!

My Favorite College Prank

A good burn goes a long way in my book.Pranks and practical jokes are one of life's great pleasures. This means fun, and light-hearted stuff, not stupid and ruthless hazing. My favorite prank that I pulled in college was assisted by one of my best friends.

At FSU, once we were legal to drink, our favorite hangout was Bullwinkle's on Tenneseee street. $1 for a Captain & Coke was impossible to beat. $20 will get you enough drinks to get hammered and leave a good tip for the bartender. Like many of you, getting drunk makes me hungry. Few things satisified that drunk hunger like a half dozen pepperoni rolls from Gumby's Pizza. Thankfully for us, it was just a short stumble across Tennesee Street.

Bracing ourselves against the counter in Gumby's, a gallon of Captain Morgan flowing through our veins, we ordered a metric ton of pepperoni rolls. As we waited, the two employees working that night stepped out back, probably to smoke some pot. Who can blame them? Through the drunken haze, we saw our opportunity to strike: switching the VGA cables on the two computers used for placing orders. Quickly, we unscrewed the d-sub connectors, switched the cables, and screwed them back in, unseen by the employees.

A few minutes later, they came back inside, and tried to use the computers. They were at a loss as to why the screens weren't working right. We did our best to suppress our drunken laughter, and almost lost it when the Gumby's employees called corporate for technical support. Finally, our food was ready, and we left quickly before the switcheroo was discovered. If time travel is discovered, I'd love to go back and find out how long it took to get those cables switched back.

As far as pranks go, this was pretty innocent, but at the time, it totally cracked me up. I felt victorious, like the champion of all pranks. What do you think? It was probably one of those, "You had to be there." kind of pranks. Look below to find some videos of other funny pranks.

R.I.P. Neil Armstrong

Neil Armstrong is one of the most iconic Americans ever. He was the first human being to set foot on the moon. Some people deny this but to each his own. What bothers me is that we first landed on the moon 43 years ago and haven't been back since 1972. With our current levels of technology, we should be going there once a week to our moonbase. Budget cuts and politics have formed major obstacles for scientific achievement. We need to change this. Get involved, tell your politicians that space exploration is worth our money, please.

Rest in peace, Mr. Armstrong. The world needs more people like you.

Music Video Saturday: Anti-Autotune Edition

In my opinion, popular music has mostly gone to shit. Most of the blame lies with the prevalence of Auto-Tune software. Any shitty singer or group with decent marketing can now make millions. This week Music Video Saturday brings out some old classics that most definitely do not use Auto-Tune. Enjoy!

Pure Prairie League

The melody and harmony in this song is great. It's perfect for cruising down the highway with the top down under the summer sun. There's also some superb classic rock guitar playing on this track as well.

Otis Redding

Not much else needs to be said about this song.

Internet Genius Epidemic!

The Internet is great for many things. Stupid and pointless videos are among the best. Recently I saw the Banana and Sprite Challenge on tosh.0.

What is this challenge you may ask?

Watch the video below to get a better idea of the wonders of the Internet and the levels to which people will stoop for fame and notoriety.

All I know is, this shit is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
