A Little Test – Left Brained or Right?

Ξ October 19th, 2007 | → 3 Comments | ∇ Costa Rica, Fun Stuff, Idle Thoughts, Maria Luisa, Whatever |

Are you a left brain person? Right sided?

I like these things. My friend Ri sent this to me, and I in turn sent it to a bunch of folks… All have had a blast. All are amazed.

ML and I see the same thing! Do you and your partner? Which way is the dancer turning? To the left (clockwise) or to the right? Can you see both?

Now THIS is Incredible

Ξ June 2nd, 2007 | → 11 Comments | ∇ Animal Stories, Hmmm!, Whatever, YouTube |

I do not spend much time on the YouTube web site as it is highly addictive and a person can spend numerous hours (read that as waste numerous hours) watching stupid videos of no value whatsoever.

Today, however, I went to the site because I could not remember if it was Utube or YouTube and I needed to send the URL to someone. By chance, the video below was on the home page. This has nothing to do with Costa Rica, but has everything to do with a great and lucky amateur video. (more…)

 

Brief History of Conservatives and Liberals

monsters.jpgMy nephew sent this to me. I have decided to share this with my loyal readers. I am presuming that he actually wrote this… though as always, it is possible I am violating someone’s copyright. I tend to think he did as his political bent is somewhat to the right right of Genghis Khan. If I am violating someone’s rights, I apologize but do not bother writing me to tell me to remove it as I live in Costa Rica and I am pretty much threat-proof.

WARNING: If you are a Liberal, you may find this slightly…ummm… well, anyway, read it if you wish! It’s pretty funny and kinda accurate.

Stupid (but funny) (R rated)

Ξ November 9th, 2006 | → 1 Comments | ∇ Costa Rica, Humor, Quotes, Whatever |

I get emails every few days with someone’s idea of silliness. Usually, they are not funny. Some are just grossly off-color, and while I am not a prude, I have lost patience with the raw stuff.

However, this morning I received these gems… I have no idea if these people actually said these things… I always have doubts, but who really cares? Pretty funny stuff IMHO. I am probably violating someone’s copyright, though I am not sure if that is possible if these are actual quotes.

The Middle East

Ξ November 5th, 2006 | → 9 Comments | ∇ Costa Rica, Ewwwwww!, Humor, News and Comments, The Middle East, Whatever |

Map of the Middle EastThe Middle East seems to me like a festering hole. Last night, the Clinton News Network (CNN) tells me there are now something like 8 countries rushing to build “the bomb”.

This made me want to know exactly where ARE these countries in relation to one another. Therefore, you may click the thumbnail map above for a full sized view of the area.

I believe this will place everything in perspective for my loyal readers!

 

I am in love with another woman…

Ξ October 14th, 2006 | → 6 Comments | ∇ Blogging stuff, Costa Rica, Geeky Stuff, Hmmm!, Humor, Idle Thoughts, Life in Costa Rica, Maria Luisa, Rants, Shakira, Whatever |

OK… perhaps it is more of a lustfull thing. I am totally in love lust with Shakira.

I explained to Maria that should Shakira decide to come to Costa Rica searching desperately for a 60+, overweight Gringo with whom she could spend her declining years, I would have to consider leaving my wonderful wife… forthwith. Well I tried to say that, but I didn’t know how to say forthwith in Spanish. For those of you who know not who is shakira, read on…

Getting a Boob Job? Better pay up!

Ξ October 4th, 2006 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Costa Rica, Hmmm!, Humor, Idle Thoughts, News and Commentary, Whatever |

I always like those goofy news articles.

boobs.jpgThe one I read today was about a German plastic surgeon who apparently got fed up with his non-paying breast enhancement clients and decided to send their photos to the the local police in hopes of having them tracked down.

It seems all of the ladies just sort of walked out after the surgery without as much as a “by-your-leave” leaving the good doctor paymentless.

“Tanja” went out for “fresh air” after 8,000-euro ($10,000) surgery to enlarge her breasts. “She never came back and never paid,” Koenig said. He now plans to demand payment in advance.

It seems he also prepared “wanted posters” showing his handiwork.

Now correct me if I am wrong here, but just who is going to SEE these boobs? Husbands, boyfriends, various lovers? And that begs more questions!

1. Who is going to report this if they DO happen to stumble across those felonious knockers?

2. Who REALLY looks at them all that closely in the first place? I mean we need a POSITIVE ID right?? I happen to believe that a truly close breast examination often provides just too much information for the average viewer.

3. Presuming an arrest… Will there be a line-up?

4. Just how much freedom have the German police to examine the… ummm… the evidence… and maybe MOST important,

5. Anyone know where can I get ahold of one of those wanted posters!

 

Something I learned today

Ξ September 28th, 2006 | → 8 Comments | ∇ Costa Rica, Ewwwwww!, Food, Health and Welfare, Humor, Idle Thoughts, Whatever |

Lately, my health has taken a bit of downturn. Seems that past a certain age, things begin to break. I am also becoming intimately familiar with the CAJA health care system in Costa Rica which I will expound upon soon in a future post.

New Blog Design (for now)

Ξ August 5th, 2006 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Blogging stuff, Costa Rica, Geeky Stuff, Life in Costa Rica, News and Comments, Whatever |

man_at_computer.gifAs with my other blog, a fair number of people have complained that the old brown color scheme was difficult to read. Not enough contrast for older eyes I am thinking.

With that in mind, I am switching to new theme which hopefully will be easier to read. About the only thing I may want to change on this one, is moving the posting information to the bottom of each post instead of having it appear just below the title.

Anyway, feel free to comment on this new design… good or bad.

 

The Winds of Change?

small.jpgUnless you have been living in another dimension, you have probably heard of the “Browser War”, the Browser being the program on your PC that you use to visit web sites (like his one) and the War being the two major Players, Internet Explorer and Firefox.

Looking a my stats for this blog, The Real Costa Rica Blog, and The Real Costa Rica, I found something astonishing!
