A mini fridge that can throw a nice cold one to you? Yup. Some guy with way too much time on his hands has built a beer launching refridgerator. It can “throw” a beer to someone approximately 13 feet away. And now the inventor is offering to build one for you for the very low price $1500 a pop. Hmmmmm. Where can I find $1500 to waste?

You’ve got to admire the creativeness and enginuity involved. It really makes me proud to know we have people out there like this trying to figure out ways to make us even lazier. God knows I need all the help I can get in that department.

Yesterday the two satellite radio companies, Sirius and XM, announced they were merging. Since I’ve been investing in Sirius for a few years now, I am curious to see what this will mean in the long run. Ironically, just last week I was talking with some friends about the improbabilty of a merger like this. I just didn’t think it was in the cards. Especially with all the articles on the net quoting both companies as having nothing in the works.

But something else happened last week. Something that, dare I say, may have sparked this merger? Yes. I do believe it was a Valentine’s gift I received.

The latest and greatest that Sirius has to offer. The Stilleto 100! I am getting rid of my old crappy one (unless one of you wants to buy it, then it is an older awesome one) after getting this one for Valentine’s Day. I guess Valentine’s isn’t all bad. ;) Anyway, I believe that unseen cosmic forces came into play once I activated the new radio, because 2 days later the merger is announced! I mean, come on. There has to be a connection. Tell me I’m wrong. But if you do, speak up, because I’ll have my new radio on.

And buy some stock in Sirius. Just a suggestion. Don’t get mad at me if it tanks.

Today's Deep Thought

  • To me, truth is not some vague, foggy notion. Truth is real. And, at the same time, unreal. Fiction and fact and everything in between, plus some things I can't remember, all rolled into one big "thing." This is truth, to me.
