Ostrich hates iPhone

This is not MY video, but this is the comments from youtube

"iPhone vs Ostrich at Safari West. I dropped my iphone while recording video of ostriches on a safari tour. Safari staff (my heroes) retrieved it eventually and not only did it survive this vicious ostrich attack (it still works) but the video camera captured it all."

Swine Flu Vaccines

 OK... So I have a question for you... the Swine Flu is getting a lot of buzz lately, its all over the news. Mostly they are talking about the vaccines that are on the way. Everyone is talking about how safe it is.

So I have a question, If the vaccine is so safe why is it that in June a document signed by Secretary of Health and Human Services, Kathleen Sebelius grants immunity from law suits for any side effects, including death, to any makers of swine flu vaccines.

 Check this article out.

Update: November 26
Sorry, I was just looking thru some old posts and noticed that this news link was killed.

Here is another article about Sebelius.

iPods Don't Need to Be Washed... How to save one.

OK, So I'm a total spaz... every day I carry my iPhone and my iPod from my car to the apartment to charge and load them with new content.  About a week ago I came home from work right before going on vacation and accidentally left my 2G iPod Nano in my pocket and washed it in the laundry... OOPS!!!

So what do you do? Luckily my wife read online that the trick was this.

1. DON'T TURN IT ON... DON'T PLUG IT IN...

2. Put it in a bag of rice.

3. Leave it for a week.

Perfect. We had a big bag of rice so we put about a cup of rice in a ziplock and dropped the iPod in with it and we left on vacation.

Well, we just got back and I'm happy to tell you.  She seems to be working just fine!  Not sure if we'll have any adverse effects on the battery performance, which had been STELLAR... But I'll let you know about that later... for now, it seems to be working fine.
