I remember us talking about this back in 2002... Apparently it's finally come to fruition. Looks awesome.

Campaign Update: Racial Profiling?

A reliable news source states that Sen. Barack Obama's campaign bus was stopped by Marion County deputy sheriff on Tuesday. Addressing him as "Barry," the sheriff told Obama that "someone 'bout his height, 'bout his skin color knocked out a Piggly Wiggly a coupla hours ago."
Sheriff Clutter then turned to Obama's wife, Michelle, looked her up and down, and wiped his mouth with a handkerchief. (read more)

For the next marathon we need to watch The Running Man. This is not open to debate. Good gravy was that movie bad, just brutally, painfully bad. It makes Commando look like Citizen Kane (or House Party 2!).

Netflix Movie Watching World Championship

I just came across this site for the Netflix Movie Watching World Championship. The contestants have to watch 56 movies taking approximately 121 Hours. Apparently the Guinness World Record is on the line. There are some messed up things that make it into that book. How is staying awake and watching 121 hours of movies noteworthy? I dunno, but Jay, India currently represents with the current Guinness record holder clocking in at 120 hours and 23 minutes. He's back to defend his title too.
The event started yesterday and is being held in a plexi-glass living room in the center of Times Square. To count as actually "watching" the movies their eyes cannot stray from the screen. A "team of medical professionals" is going to monitor them to make sure they don't just zone out with their eyes open. Damn, some people take this pretty seriously.
I'd argue that I could find a better use of my time for 121 hours, but in reality, I'd probably squander it on, um, watching movies. And sleep. I'd probably throw some sleep in there too.
You can get more info at the "official" facebook site (keyword search: Netflix Movie Watching World Championship).
