Message in a bottle…c’mon you can hear Sting sayin’ it right?

2 Oct

A year has passed since I wrote my note

But I should have known this right from the start
Only hope can keep me together
Love can mend your life but
Love can break your heart
Ill send an s.o.s. to the world
Ill send an s.o.s. to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Message in a bottle, yeah
Message in a bottle, yeah
Message in a bottle, yeah
Message in a bottle, yeah

Half inspired, half appalled — who litters nowadays ;).

Boston.com reports that a message in a bottle actually made it from the Cape all the way to France!

Each year on her birthday, Ann Hernandez and her boyfriend, Alan Tomaska, would settle on the rocky shore of Thacher Island and uncork a bottle of champagne in a toast to the day. When the bottle was empty and the tide going out, Hernandez would tuck a handwritten message inside and Tomaska would hurl the bottle over the rocks and into the crashing surf.

It would take six years, but someone did. Defying nautical laws and odds, one of Hernandez’s bottles last month bobbed along the coast of France to a quaint village, where a French couple, Michel and Daniele Onesime, scooped it out of the water and read with wonder the note inside.

Deval Patrick is way cooler than the NBA

30 Sep

The NBA wants to use “replacement referees.”  Uhh…you mean scabs?  The SI article details, saying that the league hasn’t been able to come to an agreement with the vet refs.

NBA 0 – D. Patrick 1

At least our man D. Patrick is man enough to stand up to Hyatt when they fired 100 housekeepers in their interest to save a couple of bucks an hour.  Although, Hyatt isn’t really giving them their jobs back.

The Hyatt 100, as they’re now known, thought about the offer over the weekend. Then on Monday, they voted overwhelmingly to reject it. Now the union is calling for a nationwide Hyatt boycott.

Dollar, dollar bills y’all.

Lots of them.

$This is a cellar full of money (duh) that was made by buying sudafed and then turning it into meth.  I guess this is what happens when you sell drugs…you make lots of money, ruin lots of people’s lives…and then watch the 5-0 take it away.

Everyone’s favorite dancing baby.
