Would you rather have one free trip to space or free international travel for life?

I got this idea from WordPress after my last blog. I don’t know how this is even a question. Unless you’re really rich and can travel anywhere already, why would you pick the space trip? You can go to space once… and do what? Look out the window. Be uncomfortable for a little, sit in a tight spot and have a good chance of dying? I would most definitely take the free international travel for life.

The possibilities are endless. You can go wherever you want whenever you want.

Skiing in Colorado, yup.

Walk the Great Wall, check.

Have a weekend in the Red Light District, I think so.

I think my life would be complete if I had free travel for life. You’d have no excuse for being unhappy.

This is also my opinion and I’m sure there are people that would disagree. We all know that one trip to space could be so exciting! (note the sarcasm)

If you read this and were shocked by some of these or learned some new things there’s a reason why. To the best of my knowledge everyone of these facts is false. I do a lot of “stumbling” when I’m on the internet and I’m always brought to lists of things I didn’t know. It made me wonder, how much of this stuff is just straight b.s. The title is actually a lie too, there isn’t 25 facts there… hopefully you noticed. I also never read the fine print at the bottom so if I read this I’d believe all of these lies.

Trick or Treat

I have been in quite the blog rut lately. I couldn’t think of anything to write about for the last 2 weeks. I figured I’d do a quick one about the best holiday ever. Which it’s actually not the day that’s the best but the weekend before… HALLOWEEN! What other time of the year can you(if you’re a normal human being) dress up like whatever you want and drink for a week straight!? A plus for most guys (not me) is how girls can show their true selves on this day and dress like the sluts they are! 🙂 I am a sucker for couple outfit’s too. V hates me for it but I absolutely love it! This year we are going as Clark Kent and Lois Lane! 🙂 She’s not very happy about the pick but I gave her Saturday night to pick our outfits and she hasn’t came up with anything yet. Thursday night I will be dressed as the best man on television, Dexter. There’s my rant about Halloween.

 

All I want for Christmas is… my 3 black guns :)

 

With Christmas just around the corner I figured it was appropriate to make a little list of things I’d like. 🙂 In case anyone(V) was wondering what I wanted. Nothing too crazy… At least I don’t think so.

Smith and Wesson M&P. I’d really be happy with any caliber but I’d prefer the 40. All black and any accessories you think I’d like.

Springfield Armory XD. Also any caliber but prefer 40. Same thing applies. 🙂

Collection wouldn’t be complete without an AR-15. Doesn’t have to be this pretty but I wouldn’t complain. I’m just trying to keep us safe for the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse. I’m not just crazy!

Dream Rides :)

This is a list of my dream rides. Although there might be 1 or 2 that might be a reality at some point in my life, most are cars that I will only be able to drive in my head. It’s in a random order so this doesn’t mean it’s the rank I’d want them.

First, a black on black Ford Mustang. I didn’t really like the mustang until the newer models came out and now I love them. I’d want it “murdered out” with a flat black coat. This is one of the few that I would hope I can actually acquire in my life. 🙂

The next one is definitely a dream car. I don’t have a specific style I’d want because I would want any Ferrari. I wouldn’t be greedy. 😉

I fell in love with this car in the first “Fast and Furious” movie. The Toyota Supra. They haven’t made one since the 90’s but it is still an amazing car. There are rumors it will be brought back and I can only cross my fingers. This too is one that I might be able to have in my life.

The ultimate “Man-ride”. The original Hummer H1. I have had the privilege of driving this but the one I drove was probably 2000 lbs heavier. I am also licensed to drive this truck in the Marines. Just an all-around bad ass  piece of machine.

If you’ve ever rode on a crotch rocket than you know where I’m coming from with this. The “Ferrari” of motorcycles, the Ducati. The sexiest bike that has ever laid rubber on pavement. I’d like to think I could handle the 1098 but I don’t know. My GSX-R 600 was more than enough for me. 🙂

I’m not real big into cruisers but this is probably the only one I’d ever think about getting. The Harley V-Rod. There’s not really any other Harley that can compare looks-wise.

Even though I like the older style a little bit more, this was a sick picture. One of the few greats that comes from our own country. The Dodge Viper.

Old school muscle can’t look any better than this. 1969 Dodge Camaro.

And for when I make my first billion. 🙂 I think I’ll get myself a Maybach. The car that defines Luxury. Reclining seats and a bar. It also has power that can compete with any car out there.

 

If you can’t tell, I like black.

My Favorites

I’m bored, I’m going to make a list of some of the websites that I have bookmarked on my computer. It’ll give you a little insight into my head. I don’t know if this is how many most people have. There’s about 20 more that I got too bored to put on because it was taking forever to load and I wanted to check that each site was still up. Here ya go…

http://www.fantom-xp.com/wp_42_1.html – This is the first website in my bookmarks. I think this was when I first got my laptop and was trying to find a background for it because it is a site for desktop backgrounds.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33r142BD7lU – This is just a song from one of the “Fast and Furious” movies that I liked. Apparently enough to bookmark it at the time.

http://www.grapplearts.com/Blog/2004/10/a-roadmap-for-grappling/ – When I was going to try to get into MMA I guess I saved this. I’d still like to do it but don’t have the time or money to train for it so it’ll just be a dream for now.

http://www.lockpicks.com/shovittool.aspx – Seriously, who doesn’t want to be able to pick locks? For my days when I become an international spy.

http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/category/cgotw/page/2/ – Just a site that shows cool stuff.

http://icanhascheezburger.com/page/2/ – Because cats are funny and it takes the mystery out of guessing what they are thinking.

http://dogs.icanhascheezburger.com/page/2/ – Same thing, with dogs.

http://failblog.org/page/5/ – A site with “fail’s”

(Side note: my computer is going so slow right now and it’s making me very frustrated.)

Michigan = WINNING

I haven’t really done anything with the 250 challenge in a while so I decided to take a look at it to see if there were any good topics. One that would go perfect with what is happening now is: “How are sports doing in this city?” Well sports here are doing amazing!

Let’s start with the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers just won the series clinching game against the New York Yankees last night. Not only did they win the best of 5 but they did it in New York! It was a close series coming down to the last inning of the last game but they pulled it off. ALDS Champs!

We’ll move to the next big team in Michigan right now, Michigan Wolverines. The Wolverines are usually a good team but the last few years have been a little average. It’s still early in the season but they are currently at an undefeated record of 5-0! They’ve only had 1 Big Ten game so far and their schedule is getting harder as the season goes on but right now they are HOT! If they can work on their defense they will be a team that can compete with anyone, especially with one of the most exciting players in NCAA Football right now, Denard Robinson.

The biggest shocker of the year is the Detroit Lions. The Lions have consistently been the worst football team in the NFL for the last… what seems like forever. But something happened this year and although everyone is still hesitant about jumping on the bandwagon, the Lions are 4-0! The Detroit Lions, the first NFL team to go 0-16 is undefeated after the first 4 games of the season! They were not small wins either, the last 2 games the Lions trailed by 20 at halftime and somehow managed comebacks in both games!

MSU is doing pretty decently sitting at 4-1 with 4 tough games(Michigan, Wisconsin, Nebraska) ahead of them. EMU is at 3-2 and WMU is at 4-2.

So I guess you could say that, at least in sports, Michigan is WINNING!
