Flickr Maps

Just started the long process of editing map information to my flickr photos. You can view them here. You zoom in to the map where you see a number and as you zoom in closer, the location is more precise. Its very difficult work, looking for clues as to where each photo was taken, and going from memory. Of course its never going to be 100% correct. But I am going to strive to achieve that 100% accuracy. I now look back on the 45% of all the flickr photos online, and I realize that they are incorrect. When editing their map data, I was dropping it into a map, and not using the sat photo as a guide. I feel a bit disappointed seeing that sat photos of Birmingham and other parts of the UK are not in detail. The roadways are not in detail either. Yahoo Maps need to get with the program. Looks just like a Google maps clone. But at least with Google Maps you get street level accuracy in Birmingham.

Score: Yahoo 0, Google 1

But I suppose Flickr, being owned by Yahoo are obligated to use them. I do enjoy flickr.

Other news, is Daniella is ill with a fever. She had a 100.3 and has been stopped up and coughing. Getting sick cause the mucus stays in the back of her throat and she is not able to get rid of it. She goes to the doctor's tomorrow to get her flu shot. It would be totally fucked up if she is getting the flu now, probably from some other kid at school, days before getting the flu shot. That would piss me off. But she should be ok. I think she is over the hump of the worst of it now. I hope she can sleep OK tonight cause she needs to be awakened early tomorrow. Bless her.


Holy crap, Fried fucking coke!

A long time ago I blogged about a sandwich that was something grotesque as a Hamburger using 2 Krispy Kremes as buns, And these State Fair Idiots never cease to amaze me.

From this link (file this under What the fucking fuck!!!?):

CHICAGO (AFP) - Fried Coke has become the latest artery-clogging hit at US state fairs, local media reports.

The gooey Coke-battered nuggets topped with cola syrup won the "most creative" title at the Texas state fair in Dallas last month. Since then, the deep-fried phenomenon has spread to North Carolina and Arizona.

"We've been getting calls from everywhere since we introduced it," Elizabeth Martin, a spokeswoman for the North Carolina fair, told the Dallas Morning News. "Everyone wants to know where they can get it."

Fried treats are as big of a draw at state fairs as the rides and prize-winning farm animals. Twinkies, cookies and even pickles are stuck with a stick, dipped in batter and then seared in the deep fryer.

Fried Coke's inventor, concessionaire Abel Gonzales Jr., is a creative fryer whose experiments have proven popular. Last year he sold 20,000 fried peanut butter, jelly and banana sandwiches, the Morning News reported. Fried Coke looks to be an even bigger hit: he sold 16,000 cups of the sticky balls in the first two weeks of the fair, which runs through Oct. 22.

Gonzales has also had more success with changing his recipe than Coca Cola did. He reworked the recipe to make the dough less cakey and more spongy so it would soak up more of the cola syrup.

"They were good before, but they are even better now," Gonzales said.


Makeshift -Unregulated

I saw this little gem of comedy on the way home tonight. A guy who had some really old expired tags and attempted to cover it up by using a magic marker to draw the number 6 over the obvious 5 in 05 on the license plate. I laughed and took a photo while waiting behind him at the train tracks. Then Just down the road I saw another white truck who had some expired tags from JUN 06. And these people actually get away with this shit its funny and crazy at the same time.


F'd up

OK I have upgraded to Blogger Beta and it screwed up all my damn widgets.

Pisses me off too, I probably am not going to have time to fix them until a few days.

More Makeshift

Well, not makeshift per se. I was driving On Hwy 61 North in Kentucky today and some dickhead in desperate need of a cock punching pulled in front of me, I wouldn't have minded too much except the asshole made the next right turn. -I still wouldn't have minded as much if The motherfucking cock bite had working goddamm brake lights! HOLY fucking shit, what the fucking fuck is wrong with people who think they can drive a fucking car with no fucking brake lights! Here I am barreling down the highway -a good 5 car lengths behind and Then for some reason I see that I am moving in on his car. FREAKING FAST! Its because the asshole doesn't have any working brake lights - I didn't get warned that the asshole was turning. -It would have been good if he had at least used a turn signal, but he didn't even do that. What the fucking fuck! These states need to get their freaking act together and start doing car inspections. This is absolute bullshit -where we have people driving cars on the road with no brake lights whatsoever!
