I had a bit of extra time this Sunday afternoon, so I thought I would do a small post of interesting items that are non financial in nature.
I am not sure if this video is even real, and the fact that the title of the clip is "F-18 Hornet Extremely Low Fly By" when the jet in the clip looks like a Harrier does not help the real case. Anyways, I still found this pretty wild:
Who Needs Defense Anyway?
Today news came that the New England Patriots traded away star defensive end Richard Seymour to the Oakland Raiders for a 2011 first round draft pick. I am puzzled at this move. Seymour is one of the last "old school" Patriots. I understand his contract is up after this season and he will probably want crazy money, but that could have waited until the next off season. The Patriots are not exactly known for their generation of quarterback pressure over the last few years, and this will not help.
Tim Graham of ESPN has a much more positive take on the deal than mine, but I still think this move is a bad one for reasons of locker room moral. Oh well, who needs defense anyway, right?
Modeled along the lines of sites like LOL Cats, and LOL FED, the blog FailBlog is a very funny stop on the Internet. This one from today shows what not to do when trying to sell your home (NOTE: You will have to click on the pic to see the whole thing):

That is just so wrong!
I am not a coin collector, but I really do love old Mexican 50 centavos coins. There is something about holding a coin from the 1800's and knowing that is must have moved all over Mexico and the United States. You can almost feel the history with these things. Here is a picture of one:
That's about it. Enjoy the weekend and leave anything interesting in the comments.
Have a good night.
