Best Survival Tip by Ranulph Fiennes
"When you're innocently walking down the street and you hear the noise of men who have drunk too much coming toward you, cross to the other side."
Ranulph Fiennes - British adventurer, 65, was the first man to reach both the North and South poles by land.
Taylor Swift Performs at Bishop Ireton HS
This is really a big deal.
Verizon had a nation wide High School contest with the winner having a concert by upcoming Mega Star Taylor Swift. Little Bishop Ireton beat out the rest of the schools in the country to win todays concert. As you can image the Mangoettes who attend BI are out of control today.
Having the fastest thumbs let BI win as the contest had to do with texting over the Verizon network.
PIx here of Taylor with my buddy Tony Hanagan.
Note: Although the whole school, including teachers and staff participated in making this concert happen, there is always someone who gets the ball moving, credit is given to sophmore Arthur Stier, a huge fan, who primed the pump by a huge school wide promotion.

Needed in Old Town?
From Uber Review:
While public urination might be an incredibly liberating experience, it is against the law and it does turn otherwise pleasant streets into festering stinkpits that regular folks like to avoid. This is presumably the reason that the Urilift was constructed in Reading (for a grand total of $100,000). Throughout the day, the Urilift goes unnoticed beneath the feet of passing pedestrians, but between the hours of 10 p.m. and 3 a.m. it springs into action, saving the streets of Reading from drunken micturition.Uber Review
This just showed up this morning on Think Geek's website. Considering it's April 1st you may want to take this with a grain of salt.
From the website:
A few years after WWII ended, a young man working in a small restaurant in Sweden developed a new way to process bacon. By precooking it and blending it in a special way, he was able to make a fully cooked 100% bacon paste that could be squeezed from a tube. Knowing he had discovered something paradigm-shifting, young Vilhelm Lillefläsk quickly went into business. That, dear friends, is when Squeez Bacon® was born. And this delicious delectable from Sweden has finally been brought over to the USA - now with American Flavor!
We've been working for months now with Vilhelm Lillefläsk (yes, he still runs the company!) to bring Squeez Bacon® here, and boy are we proud. Why? Because Squeez Bacon® is simply the tastiest bacon food product ever made. Did you know that it's rumored ABBA met while eating Squeez Bacon® sandwiches? And even IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad (we've heard) never travels without a case! He loves it on his American style meatballs. Ojojoj!
Vilhelm Lillefläsk's Squeez Bacon® is fully cooked 100% bacon. Due to the patented electro-mechanical process by which Squeez Bacon® is rendered, it requires no preservatives or other additives. Each serving is as healthy as real bacon, and equivalent to 4 premium slices of bacon! You can put it on sandwiches, pizza, pastas, bacon, soups, pies, eat it hot or cold (warm Squeez Bacon® on toasted rye is to die for), substitute it for bacon in your recipes, or even eat it right out of the tube like we do! If it's edible, it's better with Squeez Bacon®. In the immortal words of Vilhelm Lillefläsk, "Aldrig kommer att ge dig upp!" Once you get a taste of Squeez Bacon®, you'll know exactly what he meant.Think Geek
