The Most Versatile Word in the English Language

There are many words in the English language that can have multiple meanings, but none are more versatile than that little four letter word, SHIT.

Consider the following:

  • You can get shit-faced, Be shit-out-of-luck, Or have shit for brains.
  • With a little effort, you can get your shit together, find a place for your shit, or be asked to shit or get off the pot.
  • You can smoke shit, buy shit, sell shit, lose shit, find shit, forget shit, and tell others to eat shit.
  • Some people know their shit, while others can't tell the difference between shit and shineola.
  • There are lucky shits, dumb shits, and crazy shits. There is bull shit, horse shit, and chicken shit.
  • You can throw shit, sling shit, catch shit, shoot the shit, or duck when the shit hits the fan.
  • You can give a shit or serve shit on a shingle.
  • You can find yourself in deep shit or be happier than a pig in shit.
  • Some days are colder than shit, some days are hotter than shit, and some days are just plain shitty.
  • When you're sick, you can feel like shit, look like shit, smell like shit, and sound like shit.
  • You can also sound like you're full of shit.
  • You can have too much shit, not enough shit, the right shit, the wrong shit or a lot of weird shit.
  • You can carry shit, have a mountain of shit, or find yourself up shit creek without a paddle.
  • Sometimes everything you touch turns to shit and other times you fall in a bucket of shit and come out smelling like a rose.

When you stop to consider all the facts, it's the basic building block of the English language.

And remember, once you know your shit, you don't need to know anything else!!

Well Shit, it's time for me to go. Just wanted you to know that I do give a shit and hope you had a nice day, without! a bunch of shit. But, if you happened to catch a load of shit from some shit-head for reading this shit.. well, Shit Happens!!!

Pass this shit on to your friends, because if you don't, you'll have shitty luck for 7 years!

And if you believe that, you're dumber than shit!

New Music from David Gilmour (of Pink Floyd)

The members of Pink Floyd - ALL OF THEM - have "categorically denied" any and all rumors of a pink floyd tour.  These rumors cropped up after the Live8 concert and I think were generally created by media outlets who wanted to drive traffic to their sites by creating buzz about a potential Floyd reunion.

Well, I guess for me the next best thing is new music that sounds like Pink Floyd.

David Gilmour has released a new album called "On An Island" and I've been listening to it for a few days and I really like it.  The Amazon product page has a really cool exclusive "Making of.." video that you can watch.

Some of the music is reminiscent of Pink Floyd's last studio album, The Division Bell, in that a lot of it is pretty mellow.  But the guitar work seems to be more active, more driving than the stuff in the Division Bell.  Some of the songs definately remind me of much older Floyd.

I definately recommend you check it out!

Hey, nice bass!

ESPN reported today that some guy in Carlsbad, California has broken the world record for largest bass ever caught.  He reeled in a large mouth bass on Dixon Lake weighing in at just over 25 pounds!  Holy crap!

Now, I'm pretty sure I've never caught a bass much larger than a pound or two.  Most of the ones I caught on Little Portage Lake growing up in Pinckney were not even legal to keep.

Man, that's one big fish!

Read the ESPN story here if you want.

Jury Duty - Identity Theft Scam

This has legitimate fraud potential, and you can verify it at snopes.com.

Here's a new twist scammers are using to commit identity theft: the jury duty scam. Here's how it works:

The scammer calls claiming to work for the local court and claims you've failed to report for jury duty. He tells you that a warrant has been issued for your arrest.

The victim will often rightly claim they never received the jury duty notification. The scammer then asks the victim for confidential information for "verification" purposes.

Specifically, the scammer asks for the victim's Social Security number, birth date, and sometimes even for credit card numbers and other private information — exactly what the scammer needs to commit identity theft.

So far, this jury duty scam has been reported in Michigan, Ohio, Texas, Arizona, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Oregon and Washington state.

It's easy to see why this works. The victim is clearly caught off guard, and is understandably upset at the prospect of a warrant being issued for his or her arrest. So, the victim is much less likely to be vigilant about protecting their confidential information.

In reality, court workers will never call you to ask for social security numbers and other private information. In fact, most courts follow up via snail mail and rarely, if ever, call prospective jurors.

Action: Never give out your Social Security number, credit card numbers or other personal confidential information when you receive a telephone call.

This jury duty scam is the latest in a series of identity theft scams where scammers use the phone to try to get people to reveal their Social Security number, credit card numbers or other personal confidential information.

It doesn't matter *why* they are calling — all the reasons are just different variants of the same scam.

Protecting yourself is simple: Never give this info out when you receive a phone call.
