SASF v6.24

That’s Short Attention Span Friday for my new friends who might be wondering. Seems it’s become a bit of a tradition around here.

Well, summer has officially descended upon Iowa, folks. It was over 90 freakin’ degrees yesterday with a heat index of nearly 100. Ug. I hate that kind of heat – just not nice at all. I always say that if I’m going to be sweating, I want to have a reason to be sweating. LOL

And, for this weeks goodies…


In the Name of Science

Not for the weak minded...
Hmmm...this is fascinating and scary at the same time. It seems that scientists have come up with a nasal spray that makes a person more trusting (read: naive). In the interest of science, this is very significant as it always is when science can bend the emotions, but there are evil connotations, at least for this paranoid mind. What could/would the current administration, our leaders do with this? *shudder*


More Photoshop Fun

Some mad photoshoppers out there have taken this image of this poor, unfortunate dancer girl and had way too much fun with her. *snicker* Good times!


Woo Hoo

Seems my blog has was featured a while back on Blogs By Women for some of my poetry. *blush* wow. That is too cool.


Community Spirit

Had a little too much nicey-nice? Need to get your hate on? Well, check out Nemester.

Nemester is an on-line community that connects paranoids, egotists, villains and monomaniacs through networks of competing agendas and incompatable ideologies for bitter conflicts, mutual loathing or to find their one, true nemesis.

Currently still in the beta testing phase, you can’t sign up yet, but I think I might when it’s ready to go (or find a way to be a beta tester). It sounds like it could provide some dastardly fun.


Give your Lips a Boost

When there just isn't enough caffeine in your life and your lips are dry, it's time for Spazzstick caffeinated lip balm!

Spazzstick comes in two yummy flavours: Mint and Vanilla Toffee. It claims to soothe your dry lips and keep you awake when you're tired which can't be bad. Spazzstick retails for just $2.99.

It's made in Alaska – damn, they’re bored up there. *snicker*

The most interesting part is the fact that they claim that it’s made by trolls. I'm not kidding.
"Trolls are hard workers, require very few benefits, and are never late to work, mainly because they never go home. Also, trolls are technically neither human nor animal. They're faerie beasties. Therefore neither labor laws nor animal control laws apply. We just have to feed them nutritious gruel and keep them from eating the gnomes." Ohhhh kaaaay.


Is your dog a spaz?

Feed him/her Cannabiscuits so they can chill out! (hmmm…random thoughts about hitting these people up for some advertising $ - or maybe free samples, anyway. Heh)

"These ... promote the repair of damaged cells and have a range of health benefits - from a shiny coat and stronger teeth and nails in dogs, to lessening the impact of heart disease in humans." - now, how the hell do they lessen the impact of heart disease in humans?? You wouldn't catch me eating dog biscuits even if they DO have pot in them. lol! Leave it to the Aussies…


Noodling Freaks

This weekend is the fabulous Okie Noodling Festival in Oklahoma!

What the hell is Noodling, you may ask? Well, it’s hand fishing, friends and neighbors. These guys wander around in lakes and rivers, sticking their hands in dark places under the surface looking for these monsterous catfish that apparently lie in wait of prey. Well, they stick their hands in the mouths of these monsters (who then bite down!) and pull them out of their holes!

Once a year, they have a festival with contests for the biggest noodling catch, and a huge fish fry/jamboree.

This is all very intriguing, but you aren’t going to catch me doing this shit. I may lean towards the wild side, but I’m not all about sticking my hand in there to find a poisonous cottonmouth of a pissed off beaver! LOL


Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!


  1. LOL, funny shit as always sweetie! specially the photoshop fun, thats hilarious!!!!

    the link to Nemester is messed up, i was able to figure it out though, weird!!

    have a kick ass weekend!!! *poinkz*~!!!!!!

  2. Cannabiscuits, huh? Odd... but you said it all when you said the Aussies are the creators of it; heck, they're the ones who created NADS, the hair remover. Such an unfortunate brand name...

  3. Ummm, not ALL Alaskans are that weird! I blame it on their location. Being that far north is enough reason to lose touch with reality. Lucky for me, I'm waaaayyy down here in Southeast. No trolls on my island!

  4. Naive Spray? ... and we believe they haven't? How else could that fucker Bush get re-elected?
    Best dancer girl was the Pope w/mike! :lol:
    Cannabiscuits? Probably better than most of the processed crap they have for humans...I'm only sayin' :D
    Have a great weekend! *poink*

  5. Thank you for saving me hours upon hours of net surfing time. LOL!
    Have a great weekend!

  6. Oh but I stole that dancer from you!

  7. I think that dancing girl had been doing a bit too much Spazz-stick!

    I was gonna write a piece about the oxytocin "trust spray" for my science blog. It really is kinda scary to think what big business, the advertising industry and our wonderful government could do with it.

  8. Holy crap, that pic was funny before the photo shoppers! My fav was the ipod!

  9. Hey--my comment from earlier isn't here...

    I guess I have to re-think calling Regan "Noodle" anymore, huh? She might think I'm calling her a cat fish. Nothing worse than cat that smells like fish!

    What? I'm just saying....

  10. Quite the cornucopia of subjects in one post! and Cinci's getting ready to suffer the same heat wave, and on top of that, they've alredy posted a smog alert for Cinci and Dayton for the ENTIRE WEEKEND! Bleah! :(

  11. I soooo want to sign up with Nemester! I've always wanted to rule the world and crush my enemies beneath my feet! That site rules.

    I heard about that noodling thing on the news. I'm sorry, but I don't think sticking your hand in a fish's mouth and letting it bite you is part of the definition of fun. Thanks anyway.

  12. interesting stuff! people actually WANT to stick their hands in fish mouths? This has got to be a guy thing ;)

  13. Great post! Tons of sick fun to pass along to friends!

  14. The photoshop girl was a riot.
    Hope you're having a stupendous weekend.

  15. I am scared to death of fish. Loved the photo shop dancer girl- too funny.
    Mmmmm- caffinated lip balm. Next will be lip-balm Crack!!
    Gotta get some of those doggie biscuts for my dog, yeah my dog. Really.

  16. I think I love SASF! Loads of great surfing and tons of giggles.
