Every once in awhile when I'm bored, I'll cruise around the local Craigslist and search for
trannies really expensive cars that I can't afford. In a recent search for "V-12" I came across the regulars... a $125,000 Aston Martin Vanquish S, then a little further down I found a $219,000 Ferrari 599 GTB F1. But the one that caught my eye was this $28,000 Mercedes Benz S600, which the guy reports he bought new for $145,600. Think about it; that's a $117,700 drop in value, over 6 years. That's just shy of losing $20,000 per year ($19,600 to be exact) -- and that's assuming he gets his full asking price. If you negotiate down a little from his $28,000 starting point, his investment gets even worse than it's current cost, which is $2.10 PER MILE. And that's not factoring in other scary numbers, such as insurance and fuel. Ouch. But I suppose if you're going to lead the cops on some crazy car chase, money isn't your first priority.
Angry Birds is a puzzle video game developed by Rovio, a developer based in Finland. Since its release for Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch devices, over 10 million copies of the game have been purchased, and versions have appeared for other touchscreen-based smartphones. I kind of snicker at the "10 million copies sold" part, since I was able to download it free on my Android. There have been a few updates posted since its initial release, which has kept me quite occupied when I'm sitting in aw aiting room somewhere. And since the recent peace talks between the birds and the pigs have broken down, a pig-point-of-view sequel is indeed on its way.
Ernie, keep up good work!! long time fan...second time submitter... I shot this aboard "Legend" in North Palm this summer. no explanation needed. Regards, Jason
Ernie, It appears the hotel did not take well to the bad press. The Marine and his bride are welcome free of charge now. I know I am going to spam everyone I can at togetherweserved.com anyway. I decided to add one more pissed off e-mail from one more former Marine to what I am sure is a long list of pissed off veterans. Love the site keep it up. Kevin
Ernie, have been following your site for years. I have always been impressed with your attention to our military and important events. Keep up the good work. I was, however, slightly disappointed to see that you didn't recognize today as the anniversary of the Kennedy assassination. Terry
Elena Dementieva retired today, a surprising announcement for the 29-year-old. She never reached the type of off-the-court fame as Anna Kournakova. Nor did she achieve the type of on-the-court excellence as Venus Williams or Kim Clijsters. Nor did she become the duel threat of both that Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams. But Dementieva had her moments, both on and off the court, and the tennis world must say goodbye to one of the decades great hotties.
I'm sure you've all seen at least one of the renditions of the "It Gets Better" videos out there, yes? Adding themselves to the mix are employees from Pixar, Facebook, and Google -- with someone there setting the high water mark around 1:25.
