Now that's a fish tale.

The record for catching the world's largest fresh water fish was set recently in Thailand. Fishermen there captured a 646 pound catfish. Makes that 86 pounder in Missouri seem like a minnow.

Even if you don't want to read the story, you've got to at least click the link to see the picture. It's pretty stunning.

As if we needed another example of American ethnocentrism.

Listening to the radio yesterday, (not the Jesus Radio this time), and the DJ was talking about Avril Lavigne's engagement. She talked about how the two were friends for a long time and were even from the same providence of Canada. I'd be more offended if it weren't just Canada.*

*I AM kidding for the one Canadian reader I have.

An upset English housewife sold her husband's $48,000 Lotus car on ebay for 90 cents. She heard her husband, who is a radio dj, joking about leaving her while on the air, posted the listing, and sold it immediately. Nice.

Friday Spies ©: In Lieu of Actual Content Edition

1. What's your favorite season?
Fall fading into winter. Football weather. No leaves on the trees, sweater needed but no coat.

2. Do you have a green thumb?
Only if green has recently become a shade of brown. The closest I get to plants is watering my mother's outdoor flowers while she's away. And I've come pretty close to killing a few of those off if she doesn't keep her away time to 36 hours or less.

3. What is your favorite sport to watch? What is your favorite sport to play? Do you have a sports hero?
Football to watch. Everything else is frivolous. I do enjoy college basketball watching, but pro basketball is pointless anymore. Playing, I enjoy tennis, but haven't picked up my racket in a couple of years, so I may enjoy it less once I start again and realize I suck. No sports hero for me.

4. Which would you rather be: Mayor, Governor, Senator, or President?
Mayor of the Jesus Town. From what I can tell, you get elected based on how many people you know in town, and then get to sit around and get paid for doing nothing. Cush job.

5. What are ten must-own items for single men and single women?
I will come back to this. I have to look up something. Not for this question, but I'm looking it up before I forget.

I'm starting to believe all that's being said about Tom Cruise being controlling and psychotic. I just saw a clip of his Today Show interview, and the dude is off his rocker. It's making the allegations that he was shopping for a young Hollywood star who was open to scientology and that he tells Katie what roles she can take seem very plausible.

I must go take my vitamins and run a mile so to combat my psychotic condition.

Pleasant Thought

I was told today that I have handwriting like a serial killer. Not quite sure how to take that.

And yes, I've been a little slacking in the posting area. We will return to our regularly scheduled programming Aug 1. Until then, posting will be sporadic and when I'm inspired.

Money, Money, Money

I have been hearing this commercial on the radio about Indiana unclaimed property and how a bunch of people have property out there and don't know it. And they gave the website, and I forgot about it.

But tonight, I checked my information, and lo and behold, I have unclaimed property. $10 bucks from my dorm my freshman year. All I have to do is fill out a form and mail it in, and they send me my money. It's only ten bucks, but hey, 10 bucks is ten bucks.

So those Indiana residents out there, check it. You may have money just like I did. The page is Indiana Unclaimed. Enjoy.
