With the cost of fuel soaring ever higher just sitting in commute traffic, watching your discretional income vanish out the tailpipe, is beginning to push people over the edge. Anger used to be something reserved for the privacy of your home. Then it transcended onto the roadways. Today the workplace is now where people vent. The concept of maintaining a professional demeanor on the job seems to have vanished. Has anyone come close to "going postal" where you labor?

Everybody has to call off from work on occasion. And some of those times we are legitimately sick. This news article covers some of the DO's and DON'Ts of this time honored procedure. I wonder how people used to call off before there were phones? Oh, thats right, they didn't. There wasn't any sick-time. You showed up for work. OR ELSE!

Have you cut back on your driving? That may be unpatriotic. Seems the 18.4¢ per gallon that goes to the Feds for highway maintenance is being depleted even more rapidly than originally anticipated.

There is one good thing about the rising gas prices. For every 10% rise in the price of gas, the number of traffic fatalities drops 2.3%. And the effects are even greater for teen drivers.

How would you like to have a bird sing outside you window at 5am every morning? What if it was a blackbird that mimics sounds. Like ring-tones, ambulance sirens, etc. The link has some video worth watching.

Al Qaeda's leader in Europe lives in a $1.6 million house and gets $100,000 a year courtesy of the British taxpayers, and he's mighty happy about it.

One-night stands. Its a "Venus - Mars" thing. Women are flattered to be asked and men...
Well men are just men.

"Goodbye from the world's biggest polluter."
I don't think I have met anyone more adept at sticking his foot in his mouth as Dubya. All the way up to his kneecap. The above were his parting words following the G8 conference in Japan.

It doesn't always take brains to reap in the money when you are the CEO of a major company. Sometimes just having a pulse will suffice.
