The McRib, Titanic explained, & a rabbit gets happy with a balloon.

Our show has spent many minutes debating the end of Titanic, when LEONARDO DICAPRIO'S Jack saves KATE WINSLET'S Rose by letting HER sit on the busted plank and wait for help while he floats next to her in the cold ocean...and eventually dies.
We and many others have pointed out that there was plenty of room on that plank for both Rose AND Jack. So he could have just jumped on there with her, and Rose's heart wouldn't have had to go on alone.
A guy and a girl even proved it quite hilariously by putting an outline of the plank on the ground, and showing how many different ways they could comfortably fit within that outline (pic on today’s blog).
So is this a glaring flaw in one of the most popular and successful movies of all time? NO, according to director JAMES CAMERON...because if both of them tried to float on that plank, it would have sunk. He says, quote, "It's not a question of room; it's a question of buoyancy."
OK listen up, I have a very important question for you. How do you feel about the McRib?
I got into a heated discussion last night at dinner with friends who had strong opinions about the seasonal McDonald’s sandwich. I’m not a fan, but in full disclosure I have not tried one in about ten years, and was told numerous times last night that they have gotten much, much better.
The question was raised as to why the food is a yearly treat instead of year-round, so we went to the modern day know-it-all for answers: Wikipedia. Some joker edited the McRib’s Wikipedia entry, you can see the screenshot of on today’s blog – it’s pretty funny.
Perhaps the main barrier I have to true enjoyment of the McRib is the shape. The faux-slab of ribs freaks me out. Should I give the MickeyD’s sandwich another go once it’s released this year? Let me know in the comments below. Like I said; this is a very important question.
The world lets Apple get away with a lot. We've let them turn us into materialistic zombies. We look the other way on their products being hand-assembled by Chinese factory workers making pennies. But THIS could push us too far.
For the new iPhone, Apple changed their charging cable. The port in the new iPhone is much smaller, so all of your old cords won't work with it. UNLESS you're willing to spend an extra $29 on an adapter. Or $39 on a new cable.
And Apple KNOWS us sheeple are going to do that. They're projected to make an extra $100 MILLION in the next year JUST on people buying those adapters or replacing their cables. Which, of course, ISN'T EVEN THAT MUCH MONEY to them. Their revenues top $100 BILLION. This is almost just making money to show off their puppet mastery skills.
Ah, who am I kidding? I’m totes going to buy an iPhone 5.
I try to run a classy blog here, but every once in a while Dave wants me to post videos of animals humping inanimate objects. First we had a turtle with a shoe; today it’s a video of a rabbit getting-it-on with a balloon.
