May the Force Beer With You

After seeing video of a drunk "Darth Vader" in the U.K., I searched YouTube and discovered there are more videos of people getting drunk and dressing as Darth Vader than I imagined.
The results are disturbing: karaoke, trampolines, frat guys, Star Wars conventions (Triumph did it better), paddling, confusing Darth with Superman, (must be the John Williams soundtracks), dancing, and more...

This one has an Emperor's New Clothes vibe to it: simple commentary on drinking and people who dress up as Star Wars characters.

10,000 BC: Bad Cubbies

The Cubs won their 10,000 game last night.
Phillies fans can take comfort that despite their 10,000 losses they have won more World Championships in the past century than the crappy Cubs. And the Cardinals have won 10.

The Cubs still suck. And so do their fans.

*Couldn't think of anything more clever for B.C. Sorry. It's 6 o'clock in the morning.

Put Them In the Iron Mountain

I have roots in Central and Western Pennsylvania. I am also a heavy metal fan.
I hear Iron Mountain, but think Iron Maiden.
Someday some 23rd Century Geraldo will have a prime-time special opening this vault.

As a former geology major I have to take issue with this news program's implication that no earthquakes occur in Pennsylvania. The Appalachian Mountains would not exist were it not for plate tectonics and the accompanying earthquakes.
