And for one day, the Indians won!!

Tonight my all Native intramural basketball team RedRage defeated the Godsquad in the quarterfinals of our league playoffs.  Its sort of funny thinking about the underlying contexts of our two team names going against each other. It reminded me of this Smoke Signals clip:

Zombie Banks

I heard this rather amusing and informative story about a new term in the lexicon of the current economic crisis. Chris Arnold from NPR reports on the issue of banks being overloaded with money, but having such significant losses that they can't loan any money. Essentially, being dead (unable to loan), yet still alive and receiving bailout money.

"I always liken Zombie Banks, to Night of the Living Dead. Where you have these creatures, walking around with their arms out. Ripping at the flesh of humans, and turning them into the living dead as well."

Facebook Denies Natives Access

Kind of an interesting story coming out of ICT about how Facebook has denied access to many Native users because of their last name. Apparently accounts with last names such as "Kills the Enemy", were cancelled because they were believed to violate Facebook's terms of use: "Fake names and false identities are actually a violation of the Terms of Use, and we disable fake accounts when they’re reported to us by our users.”

Once again. It's a good day to be Pueblo. lol.

Hydroplaning at its Best

If Jesus had rode a dirt bike on water instead of walking, it might've looked something like this.

Google Maps- Deer Killer

On the Google maps street view on Five Points Road in Rush, NY, the camera captures the death of a deer as the camera car hits it! I know there is some crazy stuff on google maps, but this has to be one of my favorites.
