How can I get paid…

…to do this?

Scientists in the eastern German city of Jena said Wednesday they have finally given up after three years of failed attempts to entice a sloth into budging as part of an experiment in animal movement.

So what do you call a sloth who lies on the floor all day?

Mats! Perfect!

Axel Burchardt, a University of Jena’s Institute of Systematic Zoology and Evolutionary Biology spokesman sums up Mats’ academic curiousity…

“Mats obviously wanted absolutely nothing to do with furthering science,”

Yes, obviously.  I bet he’d excel as a throw rug.  Can I get funding for a study on that?

All this snow amazes me

It does remarkable things…

SUMMIT COUNTY – A snowplow tipped over on the median on the Interstate 70, blocking traffic for a time.

I’m a Colorado native, and I can’t remember this much snow falling, for this long a period in all the years I’ve lived here.  Denver just can’t get on top of it.  Side streets are a mess, and cars are being broken daily.  Contrary to popular belief, Colorado doesn’t get all that much snow, except for the mountains, and this wave of snowstorms is starting to take its toll.

ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!

Of course all my complaining does is get me this.

An area of low pressure will develop in the Pacific Northwest in the coming days and will move toward us for the weekend. The system will bring light snow on Saturday and some flurries are possible early on Sunday. Colder temperatures will also arrive for the weekend with the coldest air staying on the Plains east of Denver.

Great.

What the….?

I worked with this guy….

A veteran Denver-area radio personality was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of using the Internet to lure a child into a sexual relationship.

Scott Eller Cortelyou, 53, of Conifer, was taken into custody at a KRCN-AM (1060) facility in Lakewood, where he co-hosts the morning Business for Breakfast show. The show features market information, interviews and analysis.

Count me shocked.  There are plenty of folks in the mediz biz that I could see getting arrested for something.   Scott would be one of the last guys I’d think would be busted, especially something like trying to hook up with a child.
Unbelievable!

I guess I should have seen it coming.  Scott is the second person involved with “Business for Breakfast” to be arrested.   If I worked for the show now I’d be looking over my shoulder and walking only on green.

I’ve always said radio seemed like “WKRP in Cincinnati.”  I’m starting to understand the Cincy part.
