The Ugliest Shoes in History

The shoes listed are ugly but somehow the shoes from Kanye West's Spring 2012 collection were not included on the list and I really think they should be. Just look at them:

My "favorite" ugly shoe has to be Alexander McQueen's Armadillo shoes.  Very creepy, but so cool. See:

Ever wonder what place was exactly the opposite from you on the globe?

Look it up on the Antipodes Map.

Contrary to what I was told when I was a kid, if I dig a hole straight down I will end up off the coast of Madagascar, not China.  To get to China I would have to start digging in Argentina.

41 Regrettably Tacky Photos of Famous People

Not included on the list is my favorite bad photo of my favorite actor:

The whole series of photos is pretty awful.

In my opinion, the biggest contributors of awkward and tacky celebrity photos are Entertainment Weekly and The Face.  The best bad photographer is Terry Richardson.

"I'm Not Being Racist, But..."

P.S. Nice point about the Pepsi/Coke thing. My family calls all soft drinks "coke" even when they are not Coke. When I go to a restuarant and ask for a coke I really mean a Pepsi because I prefer Pepsi. When the server says they don't have Coke, but is Pepsi okay, I am actually glad.

Retro Pattern Test

You Are Unique

You are original and a total nonconformist. You take a lot of pride in doing your own thing.

In fact, you can be downright defiant at times. You don't like anyone telling you what to do.

While you are a rebel, you are also extremely tolerant and accepting. You think people should be themselves.

You are laid back and easy going. You refuse to participate in the rat race, and you're better off for it.

Why'd I Rather Be Punched in the Testicles Than Call Customer Service

About hold music:  Once when I was on hold the hold music came straight from the radio.  It sounded like someone was holding the phone up to a radio.  Anyway, I would hear a person speak and I would get excited because I thought I'd finally got through to a customer service rep, but no, it was always just the DJ.  And then the commercials.  There is nothing more annoying than being on hold and having to listen to commercials.

You Dream of a Beautiful Life

There's a good chance that your life has gotten a little too plain and vanilla lately.

Aesthetics and style are very important to you. You try not to let too much ugliness into your house.

It's likely that you have your dream house, dream car, dream view, and dream wardrobe etched out carefully in your mind.

I comfortably in phase 2 with my computer before it had a sudden and unexpected death.  I didn't have any money to replace it so, instead, I had to dig out an old computer of the garage.  So now I am using a super slow and old computer.  This computer is so old, it has a floppy drive!

6 Misleading Assumptions You Make About Quiet People

Assumption #2:  I get this all the time.  I am not angry and I'm not planning on killing anyone, this is just how my face looks. But now that you're making a big deal about my face I really am now angry and planning on killing you.

Assumption #1:  Since I am quiet, many people get the this weird notion that I am very deep and introspective and am an all around intelligent person.  Not true.  People always think I'm smart and they are always disappointed when they find out that I'm not.
