There are tentative signs that BP's latest tactic, known as 'top kill,' to plug the oil leak in the Gulf may actually be working. The process involves "injecting heavy drilling fluid deep into the well in hopes of stemming the relentless flow of gas and oil."
This is obviously a complicated process, and one that has never before been tried underwater at this depth. The chemical reaction at work is "dilatancy."
For an explanation of this in terms the layman can understand (along with an interesting visual aid), we turn to Bill Nye (The Science Guy.)
A shop owner says (quote) "Many people ask me about the male bra: How are they different from bras for women? They appeal to two groups of men: Obese guys with droopy breasts can hide their 'man boobs' or "moobs". Also, men with skinny chests are often looking for some extra padding under a shirt. The male bra makes their pecs look bigger and more masculine. It's no different from women with a padded bra."
That's the phonetic spelling of a baby crying and also the sound of former Playboy Playmate/Hugh Heffner paramour Kendra Wilkinson whining. If you do not know of whom I type, she's the REALLY REALLY dumb one with the most annoying laugh in the history of annoying laughs. Back to the business at hand... Why is Kendra sad ? She just got married to an NFL player (Hank Basket - he fumbled the off-side kickoff in the Superbowl last year), had a baby and has her own reality TV show on the "E" network - life's good, right? Well it seems when she was young (and possibly even dumber than she is today - if that's at all possible) Kendra shot some home-video footage of her and her boyfriend at the time knockin ' boots. Well fast forward 10 years later and Vivid Video is releasing "Kendra EXXXposed". The former boyfriend got $100k for his collection. But Kendra's not happy QUOTE, "IT BREAKS MY HEART [TO HAVE A VIDEO ONLINE AND ON SALE]. HOW CAN YOU DO THAT WHEN I HAVE A BABY? I HAVE A KID. I HAVE A HUSBAND. IT JUST SUCKS. IT'S THE HARDEST THING TO DEAL WITH RIGHT NOW, AND IT'S HARD ON [MY HUSBAND]. I MEAN, IT INVOLVES ME BEING SEXUAL WITH ANOTHER MAN"
Now, consider Kendra herself was "shopping" this footage just a few years ago. But now Kendra or "KenDUH" as I like to call her is outraged and embarrassed that it's hitting video shelves and hard drives.... SHE SAYS, "IT BOTHERS ME THAT PEOPLE ARE GOING TO JUDGE ME AND STUFF. I JUST HOPE TO GOD NOBODY LOOKS AT ME LIKE A PORN STAR OR SOMETHING. I REALLY HOPE THEY DON'T PRESS 'PLAY' SINCE THAT'S NOT ME. I MEAN, THAT WAS ME, BUT THAT'S NOT ME NOW" Eloquent as always Kendra. "Don't Press Play"? Really??
O.K. Let's make a deal. I won't press play if YOU promise not to cash that $680-THOUSAND DOLLAR check Vivid just cut you. Better yet... donate all of it to charity. How about that?
You're an idiot Kendra!!!
Your "career" is based on you being a sex symbol, a dumb blonde who took her clothes off, took 1000's of pictures and slept with an 80 year old man for fame and fortune. And NOW you're outraged and complaining about a sex tape being released??
Do everyone a favor Ken-DUH... Cash the check and just shut up and go away. Oh, and please stop at one child while you're at it - the gene pool is at the breaking point already. Ugh!
MASON CITY — A 25-year-old Mason City man was fined $65 in magistrate court Tuesday for allowing his pet snake to be on the loose at the Holiday Inn earlier this month.
Police said Michael Salo permitted his 5-year-old bull python to be at large in a hallway without control or supervision on May 1. He was charged under the city animal-control ordinance.
Brandy Smith Branstad, hotel manager, said Tuesday employees noticed the snake at about 7 a.m. and notified authorities. The incident caused no disruption for patrons, she said.
“The man was a guest at the hotel. The snake was not,” Branstad said Tuesday.
Branstad said Salo was apologetic about the incident.
“We like to think of ourselves as pet friendly,” she said, “but when we say that, we really mean cats and dogs.”
Eloquent words from Dough Boy (Ice Cube) from the film "Boyz In The Hood" but WOW did you ever think you'd see a baby just chillin' in the middle of the street!? Well now you can. The video comes via a bus-cam in San Antonio, Texas. I mean what terrible parenting ... at least get the kid a reflective vest if he's gonna' kick it Abby Road style *sheesh* !!!
The baby was "safely" recovered by his parent of the year candidate. Great.

Well if it wasn't one of those three... I guess the game's afoot!
Treasure Island, Florida - If you've seen this Tiki on or around Sunset Beach in Treasure Island, the police would like your help.
Here's the official release we've received from the Treasure Island Police:
Between May 14th and May 20th, 2010, unknown person(s) stole a wooden tiki statue from the property of a Sunset Beach residence near 86th Ave. The statue is 6 ½ feet tall and painted in some areas.
Anyone with information regarding the theft or its known location are encouraged to contact the Treasure Island Police Department (727) 547-4595 and ask for Officer Hilland, Detective Taylor or Alice the Housekeeper.
Referring to the Seinfeld episode where George's wallet was so overstuffed with junk that it made him sit at a tilt with it in his back pocket; forcing him to even it out by stuffing his other back pocket with napkins. Eventually, the wallet exceeds maximum density and explodes on the street in a shower of cash and receipts.
Time for some life skills training ... According to Guyism.com, here are some things every guy should have in his wallet:
20 Dollars in Cash -- Almost all businesses take debit and credit cards now, but every once in a while you'll run into a situation where cash is needed. A quick 20 does the job in most situations.
The Business Card of a Lawyer -- Consider this a simple (and cheap) insurance policy for you when things get out of hand and jail is a distinct possibility.
Matches -- Either a pack of them or one or two strike anywhere matches will do. It's nice to know that you have the right answer when a woman asks if you have a light.
The Phone Number of a Good Friend -- Write it down and put it in your wallet in case you're drunk and passed out. You don't want the authorities calling your mom. You want them calling someone who can get you out of this mess.
According to a new study from Australia, pictures of skinny or slightly chubby men were no less appealing to women than muscular men with six-pack abs.
Study author Phillippa Diedrichs said young people may have negative reactions to very fit or very pretty people because they assume those people are vain.
On the other hand, models with more realistic body types were considered more approachable -- and more lovable.

Hulk Hogan former/current pro wrestler has had his problems lately; he went through a nasty divorce, his son did time in jail of paralyzing a friend in a street racing incident, his daughters "career" as a singer/actress/model/nobody is going nowhere, he had a reality show (which is the beginning to all bad things that happen to celebs).
Now "the Hulkster" is mad - BROTHER - at the Flintstones? H.H. is suing Post, the maker of Cocoa Pebbles, after noticing that the villain in a recent commercial bears a striking resemblance to his own iconic persona. The commercial stars the sugary cereal's animated mascots from "The Flintstones" going up against said competitor, which the lawsuit says goes by the name of "Hulk Boulder." According to a Tampa Tribune report, Hogan contends he used the name "Hulk Boulder" early in his career before wrestling promoter Vince McMahon decided he should have an Irish name. (A visit to Hogan's Wikipedia page revealed one of his early nom de brawls as having been "Terry Boulder", but there's no mention of a "Hulk Boulder".)

MELBOURNE, Fla. -- A Brevard County doctor dressed up in a Captain America outfit was arrested with a burrito in his tights. What he allegedly did at the police station got him into more trouble.
RAW VIDEO: Capt. America Booked At Police Dept.
Doctor Raymond Adamcik, 54, would probably rather forget about the weekend when he was arrested on charges of battery, disorderly conduct, drug possession and trying to destroy evidence. It's not what you would expect from a doctor or Captain America.
On Saturday night, when a costume party full of medical professionals stopped at On Tap Cafe, police said Adamcik had a burrito stuffed below the waistband of his costume and was asking women if they want to touch it. When one refused, he allegedly took out the burrito and groped her. The woman called police and, when they arrived, the officers wrote in their report "there were so many cartoon characters in the bar at the time, all Captain America's were asked to go outside for a possible identification."The woman pointed out Adamcik and the burrito was found in his boot. He was taken to the police station. There, while in a holding cell, police said, he asked to use the bathroom and tried to flush a joint, also hidden in his blue tights, down the toilet."The officer observed him try to flush something into the toilet. He tried to flush it. The officer was able to reach inside and grab part of what he tried to flush," said Jill Frederiksen, Melbourne Police Department.
No super powers got Adamcik out of jail. He needed $2,000 cash bail and then, once he got out of jail, he still stopped to pose for pictures on the way out. It is unclear right now whether the doctor could lose his medical license if he's convicted. Tuesday, Eyewitness News learned that Adamcik was checking himself into a rehad program and taking a temporary leave from his medical practice.

Movie theater concessions have gone way beyond the traditional popcorn and candy. Nowadays you could park yourself in a seat next to someone eating nachos, hot dogs or pizza and washing it down with a latte. Has movie food (and prices) gotten a bit too ridiculous, or is any type of food O.K. in a movie theater? Would you be all right with the guy next to you eating a spicy tuna roll or sitting down with a sizzling plate of fajitas? Are you more traditional when it comes to movie snacks -- popcorn and candy?
