What's Your Favorite Scary Movie?

YOU ARE GOING TO DIE! While that statement is universally true (you will die at some point, not me, Bill Compton is my alternate personality), some people may edge closer if the Pig virus has anything to do with it. According to a report issued by the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Tech (PCAST), more than half of the US may catch the swine flu, aka H1N1, this fall and winter.

I know what you're thinking, avid FOX News watcher, and the answer is yes. Yes, this does seem like scare tactics to help Obama push through health care reform (which is headed nowhere according to Sen. Feingold) but less we forget, we've been blatantly lied to more times than I can count the past 8 years. Which would you choose: lies got us into 2 useless wars and built our deficit to astronomical numbers OR lies that would get A LOT of people insured while driving insurance cost down? Hmmmm, no brainer.

Speaking of the health care debate, did you see Jon Steward ROAST Betsy McCaughey's flimsy arguments and misinformation last week? WATCH HERE!

Lastly on health, good news for everyone who rocks the Professor Farnsworth glasses, scientist have created eye cells from stem cells. Will this disrupt weed for glaucoma treatments? That remains to be seen but hopefully, the stickiest of the icky will be legalized anyway soon.

Confirmed: Mike Vick will make his debut Thursday against the Jacksonville Jaguars making this the first time we see the Monovon VickNabb ((c) Goldyn Child) in action. Coach Reid has said, "Look for him sooner rather than later," and don't expect him in the 4th quarter. How he will be used remains to be seen but expect to see him toss the dog pig-skin at least once.

Getting my sports center on, in Baseball news (as Goldyn Child cringes), NY Met's Johan Santana will be out for the season with Herr's bone chips in his elbow. Another blow to the already expected to fail Mets. How dire is the situation there? Santana (no Carlos) is the 12th Met to join the disabled list. Ouch. (pun intended).

Well, today seems to be a bad day to be a Santana as Juelz Santana was arrested this morning for threatening to kill his baby mom's and domestic violence. Juelz was quoted as yell at her to, "Sit in the car! And don't touch nothin, sit in the car!"

Oh and O'Rly has responded to Jay-Z. Would somebody please rip out this dude's endocrine system please?

C-Murder caught another 10 years. So if he somehow serves his life sentence completely, he'll still have 10 more years to go. Overkill? TRU.

I do love it when my two loves hip-hop and video games unite. It's either REALLY bad (Wu-Tang Shaolin anyone?), REALLY good (DJ Hero & Scratch) or just hilarious (50 Cent's Blood On The Sand), but check this out: Pacific Division (aka PacDiv) dropped their flash game Church League Champions: The Game today. Play as Mibbs, Like or BeYoung and try to hit as many 3's or free throws as possible. Nice.

Check out this pack of web programming car stickers for when you just have to let people know how much of a geek you are. Shout out to .NET tho, that's my jammie.

If you haven't watched the two Halo: ODST ViDocs yet, you are definitely playin yaself (c) Jeru. Check out Desperate Measures and Bip. Bap. Bam. NOW! If those two don't get you pumped you are probably a jock with a stupid face who dates the best looking cheerleader who I tried to get with and couldn't because I didn't have a car and didn't have money and wasn't popular and was nervous because she was so pretty that I almost fainted; But if they do get you pumped, pre-order H:ODST at Amazon to receive a $5 mp3 credit, $15 towards a future video game purchase and an unlock code to play Sgt. Johnson [||] in Firefight mode.

Just as quickly The Pirate Bay disappeared, it reappeared and ready to fight. Avast TPB! Man the cannons, raise the flag and prepare to swashbuckle until we can't swashbuckle no more!
