History of the day for November 13

In 1968, Tommie Smith and John Carlos win gold and bronze in the 200-meter run in the Mexico City Olympics, but lose their medals after giving the black power salute during the national anthem. Kyle Anderson, a white American, faces no punishment for giving the "bunny ears" behind the gold medal winner's head after placing second in the 50-meter freestyle.

I heard about this advertising scheme on a another blog, that gives away free Apple ipods. It sounded like a scam, but after I googled it, it was legitmiate. You have to sign up for an offer from one the sponser companies. I did a free trial one. This is for the new 60GB video ipod! Here's the link, check it out.

It is spam, but I do know sarah. Back in my college days I tried my darnedest to get her to have sex with me. But all she ever did was try to get me to buy shit from her. It's good to know that times haven't changed for my Sarah!

Sarah... Sarah... oh Sarah... your enigmatic smile turns my furry knees to jelly.

I saw spam on a friend's blog where they used his NAME and because it was a post involving me and a dog, the spam included the phrase "Monkey Business". It was advertising a search engine.
