Chevy Novas For Everyone!

Okay people, here's one for ya . . .

Wasn't it George Orwell or Jules Verne or Bill Gates who said that we would all be flying around ala The Jetsons in the sleekest, most fuel efficient super-vehicles this side of Epcot Center by now?

Is this not the Twenty-First Century?

So, what the heck happened on the way to the future? I want my own Imperial Stardestroyer already . . . and I want it in an eye-pleasing shade of Candy-Apple Red, please.

Seriously, if you pop in to any suburban shopping mall in the country you're likely to get zapped from all the excess iPod battery power flying around the Cinnabon-infested ether. I can't even count the number of times I've said to myself, "Can't the same company that so easily provides us with endless musical enjoyment also figure out a way to manufacture a car battery that runs on left over potato-chip grease and dryer lint?" I think they can . . . and should.

Here's what I propose - we break in during the night and snag a couple of those pasty-white, cave-dwelling product research junkies out at the main campus in San Francisco . . . and before they even know what hit 'em, they're chained to the wall down in the sub-basement here at PS headquarters.

No snacks until we see something really exciting from you two on this whole "energy efficient automobile" problem.

Who knows . . . we could have iCars by Christmas.

Feedback Friday (#44)

Okay people, here's one for ya . . .

Management is cracking down on "any and all blatant exhibitions of bafoonery and those related acts which would (and should) be classified as shenanigans, goofing off and/or hi-jinks", so I guess we're gonna have to do some actual work around here today - like posting "Feedback Friday" on Friday.

Imagine that.

In honor of the announcement today that Starbucks will be raising the already high price of their coffee, we here at Procrastination Station think it would be interesting to hear all about your favorite Starbucks offering.

That's it, that's the assignment.

What is "Your Drink" at Starbucks?

Should be enlightening, to say the least. I can feel the caffeine flowing already.

Super Fantastic Caption Contest (#16)

Well, we made it back from Chicago with everything intact (but our sanity).

What a cool town!

This week I've got a pretty good snapshot for ya to comment on . . .

Bring on the wit . . .

Super Fantastic Caption Contest (#15)

Okay, this week you're gettin' a lil' somethin' extra.

That's right, due to the extraordinary exchange rate here at The Station, your measly dollar now goes much farther than you could have ever hoped.

I've decided to post a couple of "outtakes" from the not-so-distant past. These are great pictures that just didn't quite have what it takes to be front and center for the World to comment about. I still like 'em though, and since I'm the only one who knows the secret recipe to the Procrastination Station Refried Bean recipe . . . I'm throwin' 'em out there.

Nope, you're eyes ain't deceiving you. You should be looking at 3 photos . . .

This one was plucked from the ever-popular "What the heck is going on here, and why wasn't I invited" section at the local Freaks 'r' Us superstore.

This one is either the best advertisement ever for putting the remote down and getting out of the house or the missing proof that some people shouldn't be allowed to mate.

As everyone knows, Apple just announced new versions of their insanely popular iPod line of mp3 players. They now come in black or white . . . take your pick.

(This should be fun - go ahead and leave a caption and we'll just have to figure out which picture you were referring to.)

Feedback Sunday (#43)

Yowza, this weekend has flown by. It still feels like Friday to me . . . and I bet Mack Brown wishes it still was.

For the ever-popular "Sunday" version of Feedback Friday, Evil Twin Biff, myself and the over-worked, under-appreciated Summer Intern they say works here (but nobody's seen for two and a half weeks) want to know all about the worst trouble you have ever been in.

This one could be a tad tricky. Naturally, we don't want ya to break your parole or anything. The point here is to allow a little insight into the calibre of your average PS reader. I'm guessing that every single one of you out there has never so much as even stepped out into a cross-walk before the appropriate cue from the indicator light.

Evil Twin Biff, on the other hand, is somewhat jaded in his view of humanity and he's got a cool $50 riding on at least two or three instances of jail time.

So let's hear all about the mess you made of your mother's garden, or that time you thought it would be really cool to wear nothing but a confederate flag to work, or you could even go so far as to fill us all in on your part in the Great Cincinnati Water-Balloon Incident of '83.

This should really be interesting . . .

Uh . . . I'll Have What He's Having

Super Fantastic Caption Contest (#14)

Being away from the blog for a few days was enjoyable, but I have to confess that I missed you guys.

I've got another "Star Wars" themed picture for this week's Caption Contest.

Well, sort of . . .

Should be a good one.

Feedback Friday (#42)

Okay, here's one for ya . . .

Kathleen was asking me about Feedback Friday and even though I am about to bolt out the door for parts unknown . . . I wanted to post one, because I think it's actually pretty good.

The question this week is this -

If you were suddenly given $1,000 (no strings attached) what would you buy?

This is tricky, because it ain't no Donald Trump Lotto, so I don't want to hear all about how rich you are . . . 'cuz you ain't. It's one thousand bucks. Just enough to indulge one of those spending fantasies we all have bouncing around in the back of our minds.

So, let's hear all about what you would splurge on.

Should be fun - Ben O.
