Yahoo! Some News

Another reason why thomasanton rocks

This is awesome. Of 4,620,000 sites when you search for "cat hunting" on yahoo, ours was third, only behind yahoo and CNN. We are directly in front of "cat hunting" stories by both NPR and the Associated Press.

thomasanton, my friends, is the third best place to go on all the internet for info on "cat hunting". See the article that made it all happen here

I was scanning google news and not a single article looked interesting, except for ones on the pope. But Anton's covering the pope, so for now you'll have to rely on him to find out about the secret, scandalous life of Pope Benedict XVI at his "prayer " ranch in the Alps. So just a quick summary before I go to bed.

-The Senate panel that's reviewing John Bolton's nomination to the UN ambassador post has postponed the vote. This is mostly because a Republican Senator from Ohio said that more time was needed to review the nominee's shady record. "My conscience got to me" he claimed. So what's wrong with all the other Republicans consciences?

-Vandals have drained a lake at a Salvation Army summer camp for poor kids. Whatever happened to unreadable graffiti and smashing mailboxes?

-The city of Baltimore, long plagued by high crime and poverty rates, has decided to auction off its name on eBay. So far the highest bidder is Carlos Mullenos of Des Moines, Iowa, who proposes to name the city "Poopsville". Carlos explained that he thought it was "a sweet prank" to play on Baltimore's 650,000 residents. The current bid is $5.43 and Baltimore promises a free tour of the city to the winner of the auction. Seriously though, I hate stupid eBay auctions.

-Prince Charles is being rebuked for shaking Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe at the funeral of the pope. They somehow came to be sitting next to each other and Mugabe "surprised" the prince by leaning over and offering his hand.

-A deadly hotel fire in Paris this week was apparently caused by a women who had lit candles in a breakfast room for a romantic evening with her boyfriend, the night watchman. But the two had a fight over the candles and left in a rage, throwing clothes (I wonder, were they naked when they left?) all over the floor.

-A teacher is using the video game Myst in his classroom to teach his class creative writing or some crap like that. The real reason? He wants to teach the kids just how boring bad video games can be. For those who don't know, Myst is the worst game in the world. It involves going through a puzzle world and clicking on stuff. That's it. Only 5 people have ever beaten the game, and those are the people who built it. Our teacher let us play this in school in 6th grade, but I found it more entertaining to chew on rocks.

I think I'm done so good night.

So, thomas, i hear you're gonna dress up for the release of Revenge of the Sith. Just thought I'd let eeryone know how cool you are.

We make no money, but we might put up google ads if we can make money off of it and ever get around to doing it.
Carl, I am dressing up for it, and I can accurately say that I will be the coolest Jedi Knight in the theater.

Carl, why are you always saying mean things? Maybe you wish you were as cool as Thomas and Anton. But maybe you just need my love. Here it is:
--my love--.

P.S. T&A- congratulations on being 3rd in the wonderful world of the internet on cat hunting. you win.

Bad news guys, we lost our incredible 3rd place in the wonderful world of Yahoo! cat hunting. In fact, we don't seem to be on Yahoo at all anymore. You can search if you like, but I'm afraid the situation isn't good.

And it all happens as Henry Kissinger is made pope Benedict XVI... coincidence?! Possibly. But I've seen too many terrifyingly real movies not to think that something fishy is up.

So if you're out there, Henry, you should know you've just made an enemy, a dangerous enemy.

P.S. Thank you for the comment annie, though Tom is actually dressing up as an Ewok! Nyar!

Great call on Myst Thomas. Pretty sure that game ruled my family's life when it first came out. I think I remember my dad slaving over the computer screen day after day...trying to accomplish the goal of Myst. Terrible. I hate that game. THAT GAME TEARS APART FAMILIES. Damn them all to hell.

*No just kidding about all that. Actually, not so much about my dad slaving over the game.
