Jizz in my Pants Lyrics and Video

YES! If you enjoyed the Natalie Portman Gangsta Rap Lyrics & Video and Lazy Sunday you will probably like this SNL video. I love the bass effect from the vid. Who’s in the Jizz in my Pants video? Andy Samberg & Jorma Taccone, Akiva Schaffer as the DJ, Justin Timberlake as the Janitor, Molly Sims & Jamie Lynn Sigler as… as… the hot babes (job not important).

By the way… if these guys have these faces in real life when they do it, I think their romantic life is in trouble.

Why I miss Mitch Hedberg

He was a funny, funny dude.

Check out Smoother’s earlier post.

Here are some of my fav’s, taken from Wikiquote:

  • Fish are always eating other fish. If fish could scream, the ocean would be loud as shit. You would not want to submerge your head, nothing but fish going “Ahhh, fuck! I thought I looked like that rock!”
  • See, this CD is in stores. The only way I could get my last CD into a store was to take one in there and leave it. “Sir, you forgot this!” “No, I did not. That is for ‘sale’. Please alphabetize ‘it’.”
  • I want to hang a map of the world in my house then I’m gonna put pins into all the locations that I’ve traveled to. But first I’m gonna have to travel to the top two corners of the map so it won’t fall down.
  • I’ve got an oscillating fan at my house. The fan goes back and forth. It looks like the fan is saying “No”. So I like to ask it questions that a fan would say no to. Do you keep my hair in place? Do you keep my documents in order? Do you have three settings? Liar! My fan fucking lied to me. Now I will pull the pin up. Now you ain’t sayin’ shit.
  • I had this parrot. The parrot talked, but it did not say “I’m hungry.” So it died.
  • I order the club sandwich all the time, but I’m not even a member, man. I don’t know how I get away with it.
  • I saw this wino, he was eating grapes. I was like, “Dude, you have to wait.”
  • I hope the next time I move I get a real easy phone number, something that’s real easy to remember. Something like two two two two two two two two. I would say “Sweet.” And then people would say, “Mitch, how do I get ahold of you?” I’d say, “Just press two for a while. And when I answer, you will know you have pressed two enough.”
  • I bought a seven dollar pen because I always lose pens and I got sick of not caring.
  • My friend asked me if I wanted a frozen banana, I said “no, but I want a regular banana later, so … yeah”.
  • I think Bigfoot is blurry, that’s the problem. It’s not the photographer’s fault. Bigfoot is blurry, and that’s extra scary to me. There’s a large out of focus monster roaming the countryside. Look out, he’s fuzzy, let’s get out of here.
  • I like vending machines ’cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential.
  • I have a new CD; it’s in stores, and when you have a CD in stores, you have to do in-store appearances, and if nobody shows up, I just pretend like I’m shopping. That’s how I shop; I sit behind a table with a pen.

Funny stuff.  His new CD came out 9/9.  Get it.  Now.

Olympic quote of the year!

Are Olympic Gold Medals made out of pure gold? The answer… NO!

The medals, which were supposed to be made entirely of gold, were instead found to be composed of 99% lead alloy and coated with a gold-colored lead-based paint.

And without further delay, here’s the Olympic quote of the year!

“I am very, very concerned about my extensive contact with gold medals,” Mr. Phelps told reporters. “But what am I supposed to do? Stop being so awesome?”

What do Olympic athletes earn?

How much money do Olympic athletes earn? I’ve been watching the 2008 Beijing Olympics and I’m totally hooked. But what about their lives beyond the Olympic events? I’ve always wondered how much money Olympic athletes make so I decided to do some searching. Financial support varies from country to country so I’ll take a look at Team USA because I’m from the United States of America.

I read this PDF file from TeamUSA.org that has a lot of information about stipends, bonuses, and reimbursement. Here are the main money makers once you reach the Olympics.

Gold Medal: $25,000
Silver Medal: $15,000
Bronze Medal: $10,000

Here’s a quick breakdown of what each Olympic Athlete from the U.S. gets for the Beijing 2008 Olympics :

  • Competition & Camp Expenses (airline – United VIK, room/board &
    accreditation fees)
  • Monthly Stipends
  • Performance Incentives
  • OTC Resident Program
  • Elite Athlete Health Insurance (EAHI)
  • NIKE Apparel

Monthly stipends range from $250-2000 per month, so I’m sure a lot of athletes have jobs while they’re training. This is only what the country is giving athletes, but there’s a lot more money to be made with endorsement deals and bonuses. Speedo, the swimming gear brand, awarded a $1 million bonus to Michael Phelps for breaking Mark Spitz’s 1972 gold medal record of seven gold medals in single Olympics events (from CNBC) and 21 year old Jamaican, Usain Bolt, received a $1.8 million bonus from his sponsor Digicel for breaking the 100 meter race world record back in May (picture).

5 Benefits of Living in Myanmar. A Foreigner’s Point of View

#1: Business Advantage

Myanmar has just recently opened its country for tourism and economy improvement unlike before the country was not this open to tourists and expats. Now that Myanmar became an open nation, it has given the expats lots of opportunities in the country when it comes to business. Though most of the establishments there are owned by the locals, you can make a fortune through selling a right products and services.

#2: Burmese People are Nice

The Burmese people are really nice. They are honest and very helpful. Expats have nothing to worry about the security as the crime rates in the country are very low. Unlike in any other country, one of the risks that expats need to deal with is that people can cheat on them and take advantage of their lack of knowledge. But in Myanmar, the Burmese give them knowledge about their country and respect the innocence of the foreigners, especially the new comers.

#3: Economic Growth

I’m pretty sure everyone can see how fast Myanmar is improving in terms of economy and in fact, many economic analysts can see that the industrialization in the country will be faster as expected. This economic growth is another challenge of maintaining its natural resources while making it more attractive for tourism and this is another great opportunity for you to take part as an expat. These days, only few countries are industrialized and environment friendly at the same time.

#4: Expat Friendly Living Environment

Myanmar has not only opened its country to expats but it has deeply welcomed them. It has provided everything you need like travel insurance, expat banking, expat health insurance, business and services, and more. All you have to do is approach the right companies or people. There has also no chance of having trouble with immigration right away unlike in other countries.

#5: Myanmar Has Deep Culture

Once you get to know Myanmar, you will learn that it has a very deep culture. And by learning the country’s culture, you will also learn about its role in Southeast Asia and in its surrounding countries. You will get a chance to take part in lives of Myanmar’s leaders, past and present, who are truly proud of their country.

Myanmar is not only a popular destination for tourists but also for expats because of the many benefits that they can get while living in Myanmar as an expat. Here are some of the benefits that expats can enjoy during their stay in Myanmar.

Get Dropbox for Online Backups and Data Sharing

I have a few laptops. One for working… one for the home… and one for traveling. What I’ve been using lately is Dropbox to do some online backups of important files, and also to do some data sharing such as sharing work docs with coworkers through Dropbox and even sharing some photos with family. I love being able to access remote files instantly. You get a free 2 GB account so it’s worth checking out. Get Dropbox right here, check out the video! Free is sweet. I wish I started using this service earlier! A climate mangles a rush myth.
