Simpsons: Google Earth

Friday, May 4th, 2007


It’s friday, and I thought I’d post up this very true and hilarious Simpsons clip. Besides the fact that everyone Googles themselves and declines it, hopefully we can all play this Google Earth game in the near future if the data ever become real time data. My silver car’s bookmarked in G-earth 🙂

Clay Grass Tennis!

federer nadal tennis court grass clay
How bizarre! First came the breathtaking mile high tennis court with Andre Agassi, and now tennis star Roger Federer dukes it out with French Open champion Rafael Nadal on an experimental exhibition part clay part grass tennis court costing $1.63 million to set up(damn…give me $5000, and I’ll make that happen and pocket the rest). I’ve always been a fan of half&half pizza, drinks, hybrid cars, tools, payments, etc, but I never thought I’d see this happen. It would be interesting to see this again with the split happening horizontally (each player with both floors). Maybe a dangerous oncrete, clay, grass court is next.
