Backless g-string

these look pretty cool!

NEWS.com.au | Backless g-string revealed (August 13, 2004): "Backless g-string revealed
By Dominique Jackson
August 13, 2004
AUSTRALIA could be on the brink of a startling underwear revolution, thanks to Gold Coast couple Jan and Chuck Digney ('just your average mum and dad') and their invention: the backless brief.
Jan had a visible G-string problem and asked her daughters for advice.
'They said they freebag it, basically, `We don't wear undies Mum.'
'Well,' says Jan, speaking after a champagne-fuelled lunch to celebrate the launch, 'there's got to be something out there to stop people from doing that'.
She worked through 50-odd prototypes before arriving at a design that replaces the back with two bra-style straps under the bottom.
'It's like freebagging but you're protected,' she says.
The challenge, says Chuck, is to get people to believe they stay up.
The couple has spent $300,000 on the first run of 35,000 and patenting the invention across the world.

Real Friends

My friend Jen sent me the following in an email and I proceeded to laugh so hard that I nearly cried (mainly because it fits our relationship perfectly)

Are you tired of all those sissy "friendship" poems that always sound good, but never actually come close to reality?  Well, here is a series of promises that really speaks to true friendship:

1. When you are sad - I will help get you drunk and plot revenge against the sorry bastard who made you sad.

2. When you are blue - I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.

3.  When you smile - I will know you finally got laid.

4. When you are scared - I will rag on you about it every chance I get.

5. When you are worried - I will tell you horrible stories about how much worse it could be and to quit whining.

6. When you are confused - I will use little words.

7. When you are sick - Stay the hell away from me until you are well again.  I don't want whatever you have.

8.  When you fall - I will point and laugh at your clumsy ass.

his is my oath..I pledge it till the end. ! Why?, you may ask.because you are my friend. Send this to 10 of your closest friends, then get depressed because you can only think of two and one of
them isn't speaking to you right now anyway.

Love, Jen

Apple - Mac OS X - Tiger Preview

Apple - Mac OS X - Tiger Preview
Steve Jobs says "Apple has the best displays in the industry bar none. Our competitors buy the panels we reject." (laughing in audience) "It's true."

Apple came out with new displays that is AMAZING LOOKING! There is a 30 inch display that is 2560x1600, with 4.1 million pixels! That's bigger than my television! But it's also $3,299 and only works with the PowerMac. They had to come up with a new graphics card for it. And not only one, but dual dual link that will come up with 8.2 million pixels for one PowerMac!
Looks like Apple is coming out with a new OS. MacOSX v10.4 Tiger looks like it's going to have some cool new features. There is a video on the WWDC 2004.
"There are over 150 new features in Tiger" says Jobs.

Spotlight is a very cool new new feature in Tiger. It is basically a search engine for your entire computer and allows you to have Smart Lists like the ones that are in iTunes for your Address Book, Mail, etc.

SelectSmart.com Selectors

With all the Presidential Hoopla going on, I thought that I would take a quiz to see who I should be voting for. I know that I was really a HUGE supporter of Kerry until I saw him rooting for the BoSox so I figured that I should take this quiz to see who my political views are supported by.

New York Yankees News

I went to the Yankees game yesterday in The Bronx with my father and friend A. A sat in the bleachers (as he usually does) and my father and I were in the loge. It was a really cool game to see. El Duque pitched and had something like 7 strikeouts. It was great to see him make such a HUGE comeback. Bernie Williams was the MAN yesterday as well. He had a two-run double that was so great to see. I LOVE Bernie! And I got pictures of it all. And about 50 pictures of Derek Jeter bending over. Damn he is so fine! We got to watch batting practice. I took a picture of the flags that they have, Yankees in 1st place, Boston in 2nd...that's the way it should always be..oh yeah, it pretty much is!

Orlando Hernandez was the latest Yankees hurler to dazzle the home crowd, as El Duque continued his storybook comeback with eight shutout innings against the Blue Jays. New York topped Toronto, 6-0, beating its AL East foes for the sixth time in seven meetings this season.
"It's great for us," said manager Joe Torre. "Everybody is in a pretty good mood. The last three games, everybody has been on their toes and doing good things."
