Perhaps I've been out of the loop for the past few years but I just noticed today the growing use of the fist bump as a sign of "Good Luck" to ones associates. This bump between friends has permeated culture and has become popularized by our current president. Even the Ghost Hunters share a bump at the end of a mission. It is my theory that within the next 25 years (Assuming that the Maya calender is indeed wrong and the end of the world doesn't come) the fist bump will indeed replace the handshake as the international form of greeting. Just imagine dignitaries fist bumping. Several business people in their stuffy 3 piece suits on a subway with their briefcase fist bumping each other. A circle bump if you will.
Some might say that the fist bump has become obsolete but as of this moment I am hard pressed to see a greeting that is as superior as that of the fist bump. Join me friends and welcome yourself into the realm of the fist bumpers. I cannot promise that you'll find yourself. I can only promise that you'll be helping to usher in a new era of social networking. A network that has people bumping fists not giving thumbs ups. It truly is the future... roll in it!

I sometimes wonder at things in an odd floaty way... why are we here... is there life after death... oh and I also wonder about very good jugglers and Palm Pre cellphones...
In reality what I wonder is who thought that this was a good idea? That this advertising strategy would be conducive to selling a crap ton of phones? Sure it looks like the phone has promise as a great smart phone but as I watch this I find this increasingly creepy. This terrible line of commercials is, to me, similar to the five dollar foot-long jingles of Subway. You don't sell products by thinking me a simpleton who loves a good song, nor will you sell me an expensive product by scaring the crap out of me. And oh by the way... who's the carrier of this phone? I would watch it again but I'm afraid she'd assimilate me!
As if to make things much worse the Palm people have decided in their infinite wisdom to keep releasing new commercials they just feel the need not to say anything now. So at the creative meeting they said "Hey everyone loved the last 4 we made now lets just have the pale woman stand and stare at the camera! Then she holds up the phone and gives the camera the faintest of creepy smiles"! To which everyone in the room said "Fantastic". It's like the Snapple slogan room... no one had any good ideas so lets just take the one that is easiest to execute.
In summary you can't substitute a good product in with a terrible idea to sell it. Oh and screw you Palm Pre for giving me nightmares!

Today was Harass a Kitty Day. A day wrapped in honoring tradition and is relatively unknown. This is very unfortunate; those that celebrate see it as the best way of playing with their furry feline friends. I for one wish I had a kitty to partake in this growing holiday. So I spent today spreading the good word.
For those of you out their who harass a cat, how did you prepare?
What did you do?
For those of you like me I've provided videos of people and kitties enjoying today.

Throw a cat in water
Finally: Dressing your Kitty up
As Harass a Cat day ends just consider all the fun you and your kitty can have with all of the above ideas and more. If you don’t celebrate ask yourself, why? Please consider it as you go through your days for the next year so you are ready next time and remember this isn’t fun just for the kitties.
