Hey There

Sorry...been going through some more drama courtesy of the a-hole of the f-i-law. Hopefully things will get better soon so my mind is clear enough to write.

I don't know why, but this song is getting me through this drama

With Halloween just around the corner I thought this post would fit the season...Odd ways of dying.

You always hear about deaths that revolve around natural causes or diseases...but what about those weird deaths that you just shake your head and say what?!?!

Here are some notable odd deaths.

Carol Gotbaum, died trying to escape from police. No, she didn’t get shot down in a desperate escape. No, she didn’t careen off the highway on a high speed chase. She died by strangling herself trying to escape out of handcuffs.
In 2007, an unlucky cab driver found two bodies. One of a man and another of a woman, both attire-less and dead at a base a 50 story building in Columbia, South Carolina. Apparently the authorities found their clothing and identification at the top of the building. They fell off the building while having sex.
Jennifer Strange, died of water intoxication during a “Hold Your Wee for a Wii” contest in Sacramento, California. Can we say that the Wii is boring after 20 minutes and is only fun when you’re drunk. Oh…one more thing, she came in second. If you’re going to die for a Wii, you better well come in first place.
A 28-year-old Korean named Lee Seung Seop, (p.s. I am so ashamed. Way to represent my race, man), died in an Internet cafe after playing 50 straight hours of Star Craft.
You might have heard this guy, Timothy Treadwell, the subject of that documentary, ‘Grizzly Man.’ He lived with Grizzly bears in Alaska for 13 summers and one day, he was half-eaten by one while another ate his girlfriend. I used to live in Alaska, bears will eat you and they don’t want to be your friend. Period.
Brian Wells, rigged himself with a bomb around his neck and proceeded to rob a bank. This pizza deliveryman hatched the grandest of schemes that would make a heist in Ocean’s 11 seem tame. He would tell people that someone told him to rob a bank or the bomb around his neck would go off if he didn’t. Well, Brian forgot that he inadvertently made a real bomb and it went off. Thanks Brian, you still make people smile, four years later.
Canadian attorney Garry Hoy in Toronto wanted to show a group of potential lawyers how unbreakable the windows of the Toronto-Dominion Bank Tower were by hurling himself at them. After two demonstrations and 24 stories later, Mr. Hoy met the ground.
Isadora Duncan is a legendary dancer, but in 1927, she got herself into an ultimate fight against a car wheel. While riding in an automobile in Nice, France, her long silk scarf got caught in the wheel and dragged her until she died before the driver realized she had fallen off. Moral of the story? Don’t wear fashionable silk scarves in an open top car.
Former U.S. President William Henry Harrison showed that you really need to put a jacket on in the cold. He died one month into his term as President because he didn’t wear a coat during in inaugural speech. He died a month later of pneumonia.

Dinner Conversation

So yesterday, the wife and I met up with some of her friends to have dinner at Claim Jumpers. They lived in Vermont while going to school for a few years so there was some catching up to do...

One question that I asked them half way through the dinner...

Me: "What airline is Vermont's regional airline?"

Them (including wife): "Huh?"

Me: "You know, like Southwest is the cheap regional airline for here, what's Vermont's?"

Well about 15 minutes of them trying to answer my question it came out that jetBlue was Vermont's regional airline.

I did the research for you and found the following airlines are for regional flights...
* Allegheny Airlines
* AmericanConnection
* ATA Connection (defunct)
* Bonanza Air Lines
* Continental Connection
* Continental Express
* Delta Connection
* Frontier JetExpress
* Frontier Airlines
* Midwest Connect
* Midway Connect (defunct)
* Mohawk Airlines
* North Central Airlines
* Northwest Airlink
* Pan Am Express (defunct)
* Piedmont Airlines
* Southern Airways
* Southwest Airways (renamed Pacific Air Lines in 1958)
* United Express
* US Airways Express
* West Coast Airlines
* America West Express (defunct, now operates as US Airways Express)
* American Eagle (extant, for detailed information about the brand refer to American Eagle, as discussed under Executive Airlines operations, and American Eagle Airlines code-share operations inherited from TWA Connection)

Something New

I tried something new today...

Using my computer mouse with my left hand. It was awkward at first but started getting used to it right away. I had to switch back though cause the cord wasn't long enough.
