Target Attempts to Kill My Unborn Child

In a study released Thursday they found that the smell released from new shower curtains is toxic.  This smell may cause:

liver damage as well as damage to the central nervous, respiratory and reproductive systems

But you’re okay after the smell goes away right?  Wrong!

some chemicals were found in the air 28 days after a PVC shower curtain was unwrapped and hung.

Throw away your PVC/Vinyl shower curtains now!  Then was your hands very well!

Do I feel lucky…Well do I?

Friday the 13th is my birthday and Jason happens to be my name. No wait…..Don’t run and hide really. See…. It’s a lucky day…..

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Unlucky for some? Dutch statisticians have established that Friday 13th, a date regarded in many countries as inauspicious, is actually safer than an average Friday.

A study published on Thursday by the Dutch Centre for Insurance Statistics (CVS) showed that fewer accidents and reports of fire and theft occur when the 13th of the month falls on a Friday than on other Fridays.

“I find it hard to believe that it is because people are preventatively more careful or just stay home, but statistically speaking, driving is a little bit safer on Friday 13th,” CVS statistician Alex Hoen told the Verzekerd insurance magazine.

In the last two years, Dutch insurers received reports of an average 7,800 traffic accidents each Friday, the CVS study said. But the average figure when the 13th fell on a Friday was just 7,500.

There were also fewer incidents of fire and theft, although the average value of losses on Fridays 13th was slightly higher.

OC Podcasters MeetUp & Fox Sports Grill

I had a great time at the MeetUp for OC Podcasters as usual.  However, I had another sub-par experience at Fox Sports Grill. All the staff there is great.  Actually, really nice people.  The only problem is I can never find anything good on the menu.

To date I have had the turkey burger, by the way the best one at the spectrum is at the Yardhouse, the buffalo chicken burger, which was extremely hot.  It came with onion rings that were more like onion strings (very limp and not crispy at all).  The fries there are good.

Also, although I am not a big beer drinker I do really like the Blue Moon beer they have there on tap.  I have also had the sliders there, they are ok, but not really good.  I’m just trying to find something that is very good there.  I once tried the chicken fingers, reasoning that no one can really screw those up.  But once again they were not what I was expecting.  I really want to find something good at this place since it seems that many groups I meet friends/collegues like to eat here.  Can anyone reccomend something on the menu that is REALLY good?
