Top 10 strangest phobias

I always find it interesting to learn the fears of others, things that make people cringe, shiver and shudder. Most of the time I can relate as mine are rather common: spiders, AKA arachnophobia, and dark, open water, AKA hydrophobia (sort of).

However, the list I’m about to surrender to you, Associated Content’s Top 10 Strangest Phobias, is something I can’t relate to in the least, let alone pronounce most of the names. Good luck.

People of Walmart Web site brings controversy

Every so often a Web site is so amazing and so viral that whoever stumbles across it cannot help but become totally, utterly engrossed.

Twitter. Facebook. Now, People of Walmart.

Swine flu shots at schools could do more harm than good

As a child, there was one thing that I hated. School.

Even when I was very young I dreaded the end of summer because I knew that I was soon to be in for nine months of being bossed around by the teacher and dealing with my peers who were always really annoying.

Each year as the little chillins return to their posts, I cannot help but breathe a sigh of relief knowing that I no longer have to deal with that.

This year brings a special celebration after reading that many school districts around the country are turning their schools into vaccination posts for the children.

10 Web sites worth checking out

With a growing number of Americans working on computers or doing school work on computers, no doubt the number of people who play online games has increased. I’m not talking about World of Warcraft or Dungeons and Dragons, but the games that you play when you’re bored…or procrastinating. In fact, it’s probably both.

When playing Brick Breaker gets old, here’s 10 Web sites that you can waste your time on and possibly actually do something productive.

New romantic classics

As a great friend of mine once said, “Love is weird sometimes.” The following two stories are proof.

Our first story starts on a dark summer’s night in May. Twenty-one-year-old Richard McTear Jr. was with the woman he loved, 17-year-old Jasmine Bedwell and her adorable 3-month-old son. As Richard looked at Jasmine, he was overwhelmed by her beauty and could do nothing but…attack her.

To further prove his love to her, he took her baby, Emanuel Wesley Murray and threw him onto the concrete. When he saw this wasn’t enough, McTear drove off with Jasmine’s baby and threw him from a car window while driving on the highway.

Baby Emanuel died.

Kitty killer = Satan, serial rapist = not so bad

News media really is incredible. I mean, there’s nothing like having a wonderful day and turning on the 6 o’clock news to lose your faith in humanity.

Sure, for many of us what we see on television doesn’t come as a surprise. We’re all pretty well aware of what’s going on in the Middle East. We know that the economy is in the toilet. Yeah, yeah, yeah…

As I watched the news last night, I wasn’t surprised to see the same old stuff: shooting, robbery, fire, economy, Obama, missing person, rape, cat serial killer.

Cat serial killer?

In other ridiculous news…

Watching the news sure can get you down sometimes. I suppose it’s important to know about the swine flu and the state of economy, but there’s so many other interesting things happening that we just never hear about. Here is an account of five recent events that didn’t get as much air time as they may have deserved.

1. Today is Odd Day: And you thought that every day was odd. Today literally is odd day. Today’s date (5/7/09) is one of six dates this century with three consecutive odd numbers. What a cause for celebration. Bust out the champagne! Maybe we’re all not ready to admit to enjoying something this nerdy. I will. I’ll admit it especially if we could have made it be a national holiday where we get to stay home and “celebrate privately.” What’s even more exciting is that Ron Gordon, who is really nobody in particular, is offering a prize. (If you have yet to begin celebrating you better hop on it.) The person or group who celebrates most enthusiastically will get…. $579!! Please contain your excitement!

Top 10 hidden meanings in company logos

It may be difficult to believe, but thousands of logos and other graphic images that bombard us on a daily basis – from the flat screen monitors at your local grocery store or Best Buy to the annoying flashy ads that appear on the sides of many of the Web sites you visit – are filled with hidden meaning, and sometimes literally. Maybe you’ve noticed some of these before and maybe not. Either way, the following 10 logos and accompanying explanations will prove just how powerful the “voice” of an ingeniously designed logo can be.

1. Body Wisdom

This graphic image features two outwardly pointing hands joined together at the wrists. Between the ends of the palms comes a point, outlining a nose-like shape and the two white circles in the center make the shape of eyes with black pupils. Body Wisdom is a high-end day spa. The hidden meaning is between the hands, so to speak, signifying a relaxation message through the owl-like eyes, which also convey wisdom.

Asians want to look…whiter?

Yesterday was the first time in three years something more interesting than a pulled muscle happened to me at the gym.

It started a few weeks ago when I first noticed that one of the girls I attended a weekly Pilate’s class with just stopped showing up. I noticed her because she was one of the few women at my all-women’s gym that wasn’t overweight, age 50, or attending an intense core workout class clad in a flowery pink moo-moo.

I have to admit, I had grown to envy this girl’s beauty, mostly because she looked so different than me. She was a beautiful Asian girl with pin straight black hair, exotic dark eyes and a perfectly even skin tone; no fake bake orange or burning fluorescent tanning beds required.

She had never missed a class before. So I knew something was up.
