Wednesday... wow... already?

Not that the Dimwit is complaining, but it's Wednesday already! YAY! Even though this isn't his week for having Friday off, it still means that he's halfway through this mess and he can see the Friday night "frosty adult beverage" in his sights. Oh get ready, you bottle o' suds, you're gunna get it! Yea, that's right, talkin' smack to a beer bottle...

He watched "Man On Fire" last night with a new friend... old friend... it's complicated. Anyways, the point is that the movie was watched, and in the end it gives some pretty exact dates for the birth and death of the protagonist "John Creasy", and the date the antagonist was killed by police. Thus leading one to believe it's a true story, and in a way creating a greater emotional connection with the characters... well, I tell you now it's a fraud. It's not even "loosely based on a true story", it was a re-make of a 1987 film of the same name which was put together from a series of books by an author the Dimwit has never heard of before or since. Needless to say, Hollywood, we at The Daily Dimwit deplore your use of such imagery and shenanigans to try and trap us up in your emotional tomfoolery. If it's not a true story, don't portray it as one. We're onto your game, don't make us take this to the press...

Alright, other than that, great movie. Dakota Fanning is impressive once again and who doesn't like Denzel being the total badass shoot-em-up type? Plus Marc Anthony blows his brains out later in the movie. We don't condone suicide, but there's something to be said about survival of the fittest in this instance... The Dimwit will leave this joke alone... so tempting... must move on... drat...

So, linkage? You want it? Do ya? Do ya? Alright, he can hear all of you biting your fingernails in anticipation... here it is, but don't say we didn't warn you... oh wait, we didn't... nevermind...

1) Why is it that the Dimwit isn't allowed to wear this to work? If only it came in a Polo Shirt style...
2) Ok, so here's the warning: The video below is quite possibly the most disgusting Chinese food cooking demonstration ever. The Dimwit nearly puked. The premise of the competition: take live food, prepare it for consumption, all while keeping it alive, so that the finished product is still moving/breathing/etc on the plate. Not for the weak of stomach... ok, now we can say it.... don't say you weren't warned!!!!!

3) Oh so true...

4) Just in case you all don't know, Michael Phelps is a horrible horrible person... according to Inside Edition the other day, he not only was photographed smoking something in a "bong", but also drank a beer, touched a "dancer" and partied all night in Vegas. Surely he's going down a horrific path leading only to death and destruction...

5) WHO CARES?!?!?!?!?!? Historian geeks have WAY too much time on their hands... So what if she was hot? If we found out she was dog-ugly would we be making such a fuss?

6) Alright, so this guy is a moron...

Good day to you all... have fun and stay away from the Chinese food for lunch...
