Air Force One in Albany

Filed in: General & Mindless Chatter,Green,Photos,Politics,Tech

Quick post about President Obama’s trip to Schenectady, NY.  I was ready to head out to the gym when President Obama had arrived at the General Electric (GE) Plant in Schenectady, NY and I decided to watch him speak before I left. The speech wasn’t long, running about 17 minutes praising GE’s green technology and international exports as a “model for America”. I believe that green technology is a very important part of America’s future success and seeing Obama come to smaller city like Schenectady, NY and last year’s visit to Hudson Valley Community College shows his understanding that innovation, technology and education are of the utmost importance.

Now to my story of Obama’s visit. After watching President Obama speak I left for the gym when I was detoured to go past Albany International Airport and found myself stuck in traffic and to my surprise a glimpse of Air Force One. I didn’t make the connection until a little later but the traffic stoppage and detours were probably because President Obama was en route to the airport.  It took me 45 minutes to get to the my gym which is only about 5 minutes away. The times work out and I’m pretty sure when traffic was stopped near the airport that there was a good chance that the President himself  was arriving at Albany International. It was totally by coincident but I got to see Air Force One. This is one of the few times I really wanted to use my phone for a picture and it did not want to cooperate but I was able to get one good picture of Air Force One at Albany International Airport.

Stripper Scent the Smell of Sucess

Filed in: General & Mindless Chatter

New at Detailed Image is Chemical Guys Stripper Scent.  Very creative idea that smells pretty good, props to Chemical Guys.

The perfect potion derived from that ooh-so familiar scent you simply will not smell anywhere else. The enchanting memory from which this scent is aroused is the never-to-forget evening out to an elegant club where the shiny glow of the copper poles was almost as exciting as the tantalizing fragrance that filled the air.

Kicking it Old School with NBA Jam and Magic Eyes

Filed in: General & Mindless Chatter,Video Games

NBA Jam is making a comeback. The video is giving me flashbacks to the many hours played with the shoving, blocked shots, and “he’s on fire”. We’ll see how the new edition is and how it matches up. Check out the debut trailer below.

I looked at a ton of Magic Eyes aka stereograms back in the day and now you can build your own at Get crossed eye and see if you can find 3d image below or go build your own.

Breathtaking Crystals of Naica Mine

Filed in: General & Mindless Chatter,Nature,Photos

These images from of the Naica Mine crystals are so amazing I had to post about it. The images of these giant crystals are unreal and the magnitude of them almost gives you a feeling of insignificance.

Nestling up to a cauldron of pressurized, molten rock is almost never a good idea. But in Mexico’s Naica mine, the payoff is worth the risk.

About 900 feet below the surface, there is a chamber filled with gypsum. It’s the same stuff that goes in the drywall in your house, only in Naica it spent half a million years parboiling in a chamber filled with magma-heated water.

Suddenly miners showed up and started pumping the mineral-rich broth out to get at valuable silver and lead deposits nearby. The result is a cavern filled with crystals 36 feet long and weighing in at up to 55 tons, easily the largest in the world…

The Lonely Island

Filed in: General & Mindless Chatter,Music

The Lonely Island Incredibad

Some explicit content if you like that.  If you don’t know who The Lonely Island is, they are the artists behind Dick in a Box and Jizz In My Pants.  They recently dropped their debut album “Incredibad” and it’s worth a listen to if you like those songs or comedic music.

When I first discovered Jizz In My Pants I couldn’t stop watching the video. The facial expressions in the video are priceless with lyrics that got me rolling.

This album features some pretty big artist like Jack Black, E-40, T-Pain, Justin Timberlake and others.

For your viewing pleasure I’ve got some videos below for you. The Lonely Island is entertaining enough and funny. I have their album in my Rhapsody and Jizz in My Pants is a must listen. You can also check out their site for comedy sketches and more at Let me know what you think.
