Ramblings of the Mad Cow » 2007 » March


Cool little color test at http://vn247.net/flash/Color-and-Me.swf told me that :

You have a strong personality that likes to take risks if the rewards are worth it. You don’t like being told what to do and prefer to take matters into your own hands.

Fashion is marketing vice that only the weak fall victim to. You like to rise above it all, dressing in a way that is your own unique style.

You have a lot to say and love talking to your friends, always staying in close contact wherever you go. You are outgoing, fun and have people are drawn to you.

You are a very practical person. It’s more important to you that the things you own are useful, rather than nice to look at.

You are very sociable! You are the center of attention and have great stories to tell. But this often prevents from establishing deep relationships.

You are very considerate. Friendship is the world to you, and you are friends with everyone. Be careful, as sometimes this works against you if you are too trusting.


Well, the Evinator is a little sick.

Here’s Evin, as a kitten, getting groomed by Smokey.

Will took him to see the magical Dr. Brent and he worked his mojo and got Evin on some sinus meds. That and a little rest and I’m sure he’ll be feeling good as new.

‘Kings down Blazers in Game One 3-2!

The Memphis RiverKings are the first club in the CHL to take a step towards the Ray Miron President’s Cup championship, posting a 3-2 win in Oklahoma City Thursday night in the first game of the Central Hockey League’s post-season. All five goals came in the second period of play, with Louis Dumont’s power play tally at the 19:28 mark proving to be the difference.

Dallas Flaman and Ryan Watson accounted for the Oklahoma City goals, with Derek Campbell (who scored the post-season’s first goal) and Travis Banga also scoring for Memphis. Larry Sterling picked up the win in the RiverKings net (in his first career playoff start) with 28 saves, while Sebastien Centomo took the loss, stopping 19 of 22 shots.

The win is magnified by the fact that the next two games of the series will be in Memphis (Friday and Sunday) providing the RiverKings an opportunity to take a 3-0 stranglehold if they can protect home ice.


I know this one has probably been shouted from rooftops since the theatrical release, but I didn’t see it til we rented it and watched it last night, so I’m going to babble about it now.

If you haven’t seen Snakes on a Plane, don’t worry, I’m not about to ruin anything for you. Well, I am about to reveal an Easter Egg, so if you’re looking to discover them all on your own, move along. Beyond that though, I don’t think I’m spoiling anything. If you’ve seen one trailer for this movie, you know it’s on a plane, and there are a bunch of snakes.

Ok, so during one of the crazy, super dark, snakes everywhere scenes, the mail flight attendant, Ken, finds a snake in the galley, well it finds him, and he manages to step on it, pick it up and toss it in a microwave. Sounds cool enough, right? Here’s the part I’m talking about, courtesy of YouTube. See if you can spot it, if not, read on.

Ok, if you watched the video clip, it happened at about 12 seconds in. Well, watching the DVD last night I thought I saw something hokey with the nuker, so I made Will rewind it and slow it down and sho’ nuff, they added a new feature to this nuker. Ken has a special “Snake button”. Click on this thumbnail to see it blown up, and made a little lighter, so it’s easier to read the button. But how cool is that? I mean, the whole movie is funny. It’s supposed to be, I think. But either way, it’s funny as hell. The only thing I didn’t like was that it took so long to hear “…M***** F***ING snakes on this M***** F***ING PLANE!” come out of Shaft’s mouth, I mean Mace Windu, I mean Sam…… oh whatever. You know what I mean. Ooops, I might have just spoiled something.

Hotmail users = internet retards

From sugiero

“a guy, who works in the department of a Human Resources consultancy company, says they made a selection process in which, among other things, they asked for a person with ample experience in using the internet (navigation, searches, formats…).

They received 50 candidacies, from which 30 came from Hotmail-directions, all of them erased as they entered.

The reason: You can’t pretend being an internet expert and use a Hotmail account at the same time.”

That’s too funny. How long before Hotmail users realize they’re wearing the dunce caps of the internet? Should we tell them? How long before AOL users take off the “tricycle wheels” and start surfing with the grownups?


Come join us while we celebrate the RiverKing’s return to the CHL playoffs! We’ll be tailgating this Sunday, April 1st at 1:30 pm. We’ll be grilling in the SouthWest corner of the DCC parking lot.
