Fan Death? 0

Another interesting Wikipedia find from regreaser:

The belief is that an electricfan, if left running overnight in a closed room, can result in the death (by suffocation, poisoning, or hypothermia) of those inside. This belief also extends to air conditioners and the fans in cars.

I went. It was great. Hell, it was awesome.

For a good concert-goer rundown, go read this guy.

For the Chicago Sun-Times version, go read this article.

Here’s the opener:

More Morgan Freeman 0

They don’t taste as bad.

Behavior Detection Officers 0

Not Kidding:

Behavior detection officers work in pairs. Typically, one officer sizes up passengers openly while the other seems to be performing a routine security duty. A passenger who arouses suspicion, whether by micro-expressions, social interaction or body language, gets more serious scrutiny.

A behavior specialist may decide to move in to help the suspicious passenger recover belongings that have passed through the baggage X-ray. Or he may ask where the traveler is going. If more alarms go off, officers will “refer” the person to law enforcement officials for further questioning.

I feel ‘freer’ every day.

Ozark Cousins 0

From the talented noggins at Harmony Joyride Productions:

After months of riding and roping, Ozark Cousins, the movie named after the album, named after the band, will have its world premiere on August 25h at 9pm! Can I get a “hells yeah!”? OK, a howdy will do. The flick is showing at Elegant Mr. Gallery in Chicago. The night is BYOB. Since it’s a cowboy movie that also stands for “Bring Your Own Boots.”

For the link impaired, here is the trailer fro this feature length music video. I suggest you check it out, then get in your car and get to Chicago. It’s OK to be early, just bring a sammich.


Playing to Win? 0

I can quit when I want:

If they don’t come prepared, they sometimes “just pee in the seat,” said Arnie Wexler, a recovered gambling addict who operates a gambling hot line and counseling service in New Jersey. “It’s not something the industry really likes to talk about.”

Wonder if the Riverside Casino has much problem with this.
