Nothing too crazy or out on a limb. I am on record though! Oh, and the over under last I checked was 48.....I like the under.
While surfing the web the other day, I came across a banner ad for Lowermybills.com. It was on CNN or Yahoo! Finance or something like that. Banner ads don't normally even get on my radar screen, but this one did. How? They had a goose-stepping cheerleader! Swear to God. This cheerleader silhouette was goose-stepping across the ad. Unbelievable. Who is that appealing to by the way? Poor nazis? C'mon site operators, at least look at the crap going up on your site.
After surfing the web, I surfed some tv channels. There I came across the history channel and a blurb about a first century inventor named Heron (AKA Hero of Alexandria). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hero_of_alexandria This guy invented all sorts of things, but the aeolipile, see diagram on Wiki's site, is just a short jump away from the piston engine! Imagine if the Greeks had the piston engine 1700 years before it was actually invented and used on steamboats and such. Wow. So close. Even so, his works had a great impact on science and astronomy in the future as well as how I get the occasional can of Pepsi. Yep, he invented the first vending machine as well. His dispensed holy water though, not a stale bag of Doritos.
