Friday Hot Links - 4/8/11

Friday is here, and I cannot wait for the weekend, although I'll have to do some grass cutting.  We'll be dusting off the crawfish nets tomorrow morning and taking them to the honey island swamp to catch a few mud bugs.  I'm not sure how much success we'll have as it was a little cool earlier in the week, and crawfish crave warm weather.  Either way, it will be fun to get out and give it a go.

  • Can you guess the name of these 50 movies with only 3 pictures to use as hints?

Friday Hot Links - 4/1/11

Happy April Fool's Day today!!!  The blog has been neglected as of late, but hopefully I can settle down and focus on bringing you guys the content that everyone enjoys so much.  I've had alot going on the past few weeks and I look forward to the opportunity to share some stories with everybody.  In the past few weeks, I've moved into a new building, bought a car, received an excruciating sunburn, and have looked into the possibility of purchasing more rental property.  Hopefully, each adventure will turn into some form of article.  I hope everyone enjoys their weekend, and watch out for the pranks coming today!!

Here are today's hot links:

  • Ever wonder how many nuclear bombs have gone off in the world?  This site gives a timeline and light show of nuclear blasts by location and country.  Definitely puts things into perspective. [Scientific American]
  • Talk about a Super Bowl hangover for this one Pittsburgh fan. [AP]
  • A great video of the flight paths of every flight that takes place in the world.  It is amazing how much the US and Europe contributes to air traffic. [E-newsletter]

Don't be a bully or you'll get power bombed

Yesterday, March 14th, a video was posted on Youtube showing some scrawny looking kid bullying a much larger kid (aka Casey).  The antagonizing continues on in the form of throwing insults as well as punches.  Obviously, everybody has a breaking point, and we get to witness that breaking point on video.  Unfortunately, Youtube has taken upon a crusade to remove this video from there site even though it keeps popping up.

The video has been posted on Liveleak however, and you can see it here.

Also, it has been reported that Casey has since been suspended for his actions.  An account of the events that transpired that day can be found here.

Friday's Hot Links - 3/11/11

Happy Friday everyone!!  I must apologize to my loyal followers, as I have neglected the blog lately.  We have currently been in the market for a new vehicle as our old one pooped out on us, and I have been devoting most of my free time at work scouring the internetz looking for tips, advice, and strategies to take to the dealership.  The process seems to be coming to a head as we have settled on a vehicle that we both like and can afford.  Hopefully, once this is behind me, I can refocus and give my single digit subscribers better content.  Until then, the Friday Hot Links will have to suffice!

Here are today's hot links:
  • I enjoy a Fail compilation video as much as the next guy.  Here is good one that I've never seen before. [Youtube]
  • If you have ever suffered from insomnia, then I'm sure you've seen the show "Cheaters".  Here is what happens when an episode of Cheaters interrupts your league kickball game. [Deadspin]
  • When starting a fight, it's best not to be the first one knocked out.  Also, refrain from wearing a jersey with the number 69 on it.  Fight!!![Gawker]

Friday's Hot Links - 2/25/11

The last weekend in February is upon us, and is it me, or does this year seem to be flying by.  At least, we'll be leaving the winter months and heading into the spring months soon.

Sara and I will be participating in the Mona Lisa Moon Pie Parade tonight.  We walked in the parade last year and had a great time, and I'm expecting the same results this year.  We are stocked up on Moon Pies and are ready to throw to the crowds.  Some bar hopping will be in order  after the official festivities are over with.

Here are today's hot links:
  • I've always thought that gold teeth were a waste of money, until I read this article.  I'll have my gold choppers in by next week! [NOLA]
  • With baseball spring training starting, I decided to find the top 10 worst baseball cards of all time.  Mickey Mantle, these guys aren't. [PopHangover]
  • Louisiana, in my opinion, has always gotten a bad name with being a bunch of backwoods drunks.  Well, this collection of photos from a parade in West Monroe isn't doing us any favors. [The News Star]
  • Quite possibly the worst dive in the history of soccer. [Big Lead Sports]

Disc Golf - Buccaneer State Park (Waveland, MS)

About a month ago, I wrote a review about the disc golf course at City Park in New Orleans.  Well, a few weeks back my brother and I decided to venture into Mississippi to play at the course at Buccaneer State Park. I was thinking about trying to compare the two parks, but it is difficult because they both are unique in their own way.

With the course at Buccaneer, the first 5 holes are on the shorter end, but you must navigate a multitude of trees en route to the basket.  After you weave your way through beginning holes, the course opens up with wide open space, but the distances to the basket become more extreme.  In addition to the increased length, the wind is a major factor as the course lies close to the Gulf of Mexico (check out a map).  The holes stay long all the way until hole 18 (which is an afterthought in my opinion).

The only drawback to the course is that it is in the middle of nowhere.  Unlike City Park, there isn't a plethora of local eateries to go to after finishing a round.  Every time that I've been, I just drive back to Slidell and grab a bite to eat there.

Making a trip to Waveland will definitely be a good experience for disc golfers of any expertise that are looking to improve on their long game, just make sure to pack a lunch or eat before you go.
