Teleportation breakthrough made

Is it only because I'm a nerd that I really think this is a big deal?

Some helpful tips for everyone

1. If you are choking on an ice cube, don't panic. Simply pour a cup of
boiling water down your throat and presto! The blockage will be almost instantly removed.

2. Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself while slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while you chop away.

3. Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat by simply using the sink.

4. High blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a while, thus reducing the pressure in your veins.

5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you
from rolling over and going back to sleep when you hit the snooze button.

6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives, then you will be afraid to cough.

Friday funny.

A blind man enters a Ladies Bar by mistake. He finds his way to a barstool and orders a drink. After sitting there for awhile, he yells to the bartender,"Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?" The bar immediately falls absolutely quiet. In a very deep, husky voice, the woman next to him says, "Before you tell that joke, sir, I think it is just fair - giving that you are blind - that you should know five things:

1 - The bartender is a blonde girl.

2 - The bouncer is a blonde girl.

3 - I'm a 6 feet tall, 160 LB. blonde woman with a black belt in karate.

4 - The woman sitting next to me is blonde and is a professional weightlifter.

5 - The lady to your right is a blonde and is a professional wrestler.

Now think about it seriously, Mister. Do you still wanna tell that joke? The blind man thinks for a second, shakes his head, and declares,

"Nah, ......................................................

Not if I'm gonna have to explain it five times."

Do dentists get cavities?

blushUm. So, we suffered a bit of a blackout here at the frog.
Turns out someone let their domain name expire. Some real pro no doubt.

Alton Brown love fest time

I love to cook. I'm a sad excuse for an amateur at best, but I completely enjoy it and I'm constantly thinking of new stuff to cook. I love how new it always is. I could carry on for some time but I won't. Suffice it to say, it's my secret hidden passion. I do 90% of the cooking in my house. Not because my wife can't or doesn't want to, but because I threaten anyone who wishes to take away my fun. A night of relaxation for me is (don't tell anyone) watching the Food Network. I love it. I can get lost for hours.

And like any good nerd, my all time favorite is Alton Brown's Good Eats.

Well, AB has been getting some press lately and doing some fun stuff online. Here is your guide: -> Q&A with Alton Brown (each post is a question to AB, he's answered some 4 pages of them. All enjoyable).

He's got an article in Wired this month.

And Slashdot has a little bit on him.

His site.

His blog.

Thanks to NotSoFast and O'DonnellWeb for pointing me to them.

Throwing myself at your mercy

I need your feedback.

I've been toying with the idea of updating my logo. The current one (nestled upper left) has served me well for the 4 years I've been at this as FrogBody, but I'm itching for a change. Something a bit cleaner, something a bit more frog-ish, something I like more.

So, here's a candidate.


If you wouldn't mind, give me a quick thumbs up/thumbs down in the comments section. If you care to elaborate as to why you voted the way you did, please do so. Hope you'll take a second and let me know what you think.

And given that my mom is probably the only one that actually reads this blog, go ahead and post your comments here Mom. Or next time I'm over for dinner.

Spamnet riddle solved

So Cloudmark's Spamnet has really been performing sub-par lately. I've been growing increasingly dissapointed. Today I finally figured out why. See for yourself:
