Questions mount in South Korean ferry disaster; hundreds still missing
Jindo, South Korea (CNN) — Anguished relatives of missing South Korean ferry passengers waited sullenly for answers Thursday as rescuers fought bad weather, murky water, darkness and time to find a way deep into the capsized ship.
Authorities believe 287 people — many of them high school students on a field trip — remain trapped inside the five-story ship. At least some, authorities say, could still be alive more than a day after the ship rolled over.
Meanwhile, the ferry’s captain is facing mounting questions about the incident.
i remember seeing some tweets about this yesterday, but thought most of the people on it got off… 287 people? daaaamn… how the hell does a ferry capsize like that anyways? i mean, it’s a ferry, so one would assume it’s probably ferrying people across daily.
time to pause for a few moments and enjoy the fact that we’ve all made it through the halfway point of yet another week… as i get older, it’s all about the small things. *g*
here’s a few more random booties.
happy hump day!
just stumbled across this and kinda weirded me out a little.
just wondered if any of you guys happened to watch “fargo” lastnight? i got home just in time to sit down and tune in, which was great since i was curious about the show anyways.
i’ve been a fan of Justified for the past couple years and was a little bummed that the season ended (damnit), but Fargo does look like a great follow-up show.
pretty damned bloody for the first episode, too… and that Minnesota accent cracks me up for some reason. *chuckle*
In the latest episode of Archer, Doctor Krieger entered a launch code…
a little crazy to see all the samsung galaxy sizes — i didn’t realize there were so many.
on the flipside, i have a feeling it’ll start to look the same for apple once the iphone 6 rolls out this fall… 4″ iphone, 4.7″ iphone, 5.5″ iphone, the ipad and ipad mini, etc.
i saw this guy earlier struggle to get his phone out of his front pocket of his jeans, which looked pretty damned funny… then he finally whipped out his phone, which looked to be one of the larger 5.5″ phones and i couldn’t help but think, “yeah, that’s exactly what i’m talking about dude.”
i know i’ve said this before, but the UI of these windows phones does look rather busy, y’know? maybe it’s simply because i’m not used to it… but i usually think the same thing everytime i see one.
What if women where horny all day long?

What Could You Accomplish in the 111 Days It Takes to Reach Tax Freedom Day?
American’s will spend 111 days working to pay off the combined $4.5 trillion federal, state, and local tax bill in 2014, according to the latest Tax Freedom Day report.
To offer some perspective on just how long 111 days really is, here are a few things you could accomplish in the time it takes the nation to reach Tax Freedom Day on April 21.
The average required qualifying time for the guaranteed entrance to the New York City Marathon is about 4 hours. At that pace, if you ran non-stop, 24/7, you could completed 666 races for a total of 17,462 miles.
A regular NFL season lasts 256 games, around 3 hours each, for a total of 768 hours of game time and commercials. You could watch the equivalent of every single game of more than three NFL seasons, including commercials, before reaching Tax Freedom Day. [...]
In 1969, the Apollo 11 mission took 3 days and 3 hours to reach the moon, and 8 days and 3 hours for the total round trip. At those rates, we could reach the moon 98 times or complete 13 Apollo 11 missions.
i almost completely forgot that today, april 15th, was tax day — probably because i filed back in the beginning of march, which feels like ages ago right now… then again, just like 70 million people around the country, today was just… tuesday… since they don’t pay federal income taxes from what i’ve read.
i never really thought about it like this, but thinking about how i work over 111 days a year to pay the government really kinda burrs my ass. unbelievable.
p.s. aside from the 442 proposed tax increases, obama paid 18.4% in taxes, which means he must have some exceptionally gifted tax attorneys working for him… which is totally “fair”, since he’s not in the top 1% or anything.
almost forgot about titty tuesday, but then again i figure kate upton usually fits the bill… but what the hell, here’s a pic i just stumbled across.
not showing much in the funbag department, but she gets extra points for the t-shirt in my book.
now that’s one sexy sandwich right there… candice and adriana.
A 3-Day Weekend…Every Weekend? This Company Makes It Happen
Everybody loves the relaxation and recharging that comes with a long, three-day weekend. One startup loves them enough to make it policy.
Treehouse–an online service for teaching web design, coding, and more–has flaunted a four-day workweek since launching in 2010. Treehouse does so with no strings attached. Workweeks range from Monday through Thursday, and each day is comprised of the typical eight hours. According to CEO and co-founder Ryan Carson, Treehouse has never done business on a Friday.
daaaaamn… they’ve never worked a friday? i don’t know about you guys, but that would be one helluva bennie as far as hiring goes… some stock options that usually amount to nothing? a 401K plan? sounds good, but throw in 3-day weekends every week and i’m sold.
Kate Upton Wishes She Had Smaller Tits
what the hell is wrong with her? shit, she should be damned proud of her tits.
Kate Upton has a pair of magnificent chichis that look like two fat angels taking a long nap on pillows made of clouds and they’re a HUGE part of why she has millions of dollars, two Sports Illustrated covers, a Vogue cover and they’re the reason why the bed sheets of many teen boys are crusty and can stand up on their own.
Man Vs. Food Hailed As ‘Perfect Al-Qaeda Recruitment Film’
A TV show that features Americans filling their bodies with gigantic amounts of meat has been hailed as “the most effective Al-Qaeda recruitment film ever made”.
Man Vs. Food, which features a bellowing American host celebrating oversized portions of bland meat, has led to a massive spike in recruitment numbers for the global militant Islamist organisation.
“After watching only a few minutes of Man Vs. Food it’s hard not to think ‘Death to America!’ and start looking for the ‘contact us’ section of the Al-Qaeda website,” said terrorism expert Walter P. Fugue.
stupid shit like this just makes me wish (for the millionth time) that these militant islamic fucktards would just get over themselves… now they have a fatwa on giant cheeseburgers.
Thank You, Pittsburgh, For The Greatest Cake America Has Ever Made
US Airways Just Tweeted Out One Of The Most Graphic Things You’ve Ever Seen A Brand Tweet
following this thread of tweets just kinda made my day…
i’m sure it was the @USAirways social guy’s last day, or maybe just his way of giving everybody a parting salute. *chuckle*
