Dear Readers:
We have some big ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,. and small stuff for ya today!
Matter of fact, it’s big, small, fast, slow, interesting, boring and just plain silly!
Here’s a guy that I dislike more than just about anybody else because he is so full of himself ………………….., Steven Seagal!
PHOENIX – Action-movie star Steven Seagal says he is considering a run for Arizona governor.
NY109-62_2013_160439_highThe “Mark for Death” actor told KNXV-TV that he is considering a shot at the state’s highest office and has had a talk about the bid with the self-proclaimed toughest sheriff in America.
The 61-year-old made the comments while talking about his newly released reality series “Steven Seagal – Lawman: Maricopa County.”
Remind me to tell you sometime about the absolutely disgusting stuff this self-centered asshole has done in the past! (Also: Get a look at his dyed black hair!!!)
Boy have we got a great  “Asshole of the day” for you today kids!
asshole trophy
Here’s the scene: Ma and Pa are going out for the night so they drop the kid off with grandpa!
Grandpa gets high and decides to go out for a Burrito!
Since grandpa is already high………………., he forgets he has the kid with him!
A grandfather was arrested in San Diego’s Chula Vista area overnight after he allegedly abandoned his 2-year-old grandson on a sidewalk for several hours while he went to a taco shop to eat a burrito.
According to the Chula Vista Police Department, a skateboarder spotted the abandoned toddler – fast asleep inside a jogging stroller – at around 11:30 p.m. in the 200-block of Quintard Street and called police.
When officers arrived on scene, they were unable to immediately locate the child’s parents and the boy was taken into protective custody while police launched an investigation.
At around 2:45 a.m., police said the boy’s 17-year-old mother called authorities looking for her child.
Police said she was hysterical and told officials her son’s grandfather had taken the toddler out at 10 p.m. to get a burrito. At 1 a.m. the family went looking for the child and found the grandfather sitting at a local taco shop, eating a burrito.
The biggest Ferris wheel

Next year, Las Vegas tourists will be able to get a bird’s-eye view of the strip from 168 m up—riding on the High Roller, soon to be the world’s biggest “observation wheel,” dwarfing the London Eye (135 m) and the Singapore Flyer (165 m). With 28 glass-enclosed cabins that hold 40 people each—and weigh 20,000 kg apiece—it’s made with 3.3 million kg of steel. Other cities have plans for monster Ferris wheels of their own. When it’s complete, in 2016, the 190-m New York Wheel on Staten Island will become the world’s tallest, unless Dubai beats them to it. The proposed “Dubai Eye” is set to be 210 m tall—higher than the tallest building in Vancouver.
The tallest skyscraper

130724171000-sky-city-story-topDubai’s glittering Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world. Yet its title might be usurped in 2014, if Chinese billionaire Zhang Yue has his way: He’s the force behind Sky City, an ambitious and mysterious project under way in Changsha, the capital of Hunan province, which aims to surpass Dubai’s skyscraper by about 10 m. Zhang has promised Sky City will have schools, restaurants, cinemas, even a hospital and a retirement home. It’s scheduled to be done next year, though nobody seems to know if it will be done on time. “We’ve seen the same reports everyone else has seen,” says Daniel Safarik of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, which tracks tall buildings globally. “We haven’t been able to independently verify.”
Sky City or no, 2014 will be a banner year for skyscrapers. When it opens this year, New York’s One World Trade Center will surpass Chicago’s Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower) as the tallest building in North America. Next year will also see the completion of Shanghai Tower, Safarik notes, although both these buildings, measuring 541 and 632 m respectively, are no match for the Burj Khalifa, an incredible 830 m in height. “Based on what we’ve seen, the projected next world’s tallest won’t come until 2019,” Safarik says. The Kingdom Tower, in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, will stretch 1,000 m—a full kilometre—skyward.
The highest waterslide

1384924244000-verrucktThe German word verrückt translates to “insane,” a fitting name for the world’s tallest waterslide, where riders strapped to a four-person raft will drop from a height greater than Niagara Falls. Opening in May 2014 at the Schlitterbahn waterpark, in Kansas City, the 17-storey waterslide required “a lot of new technology,” says spokesperson Winter Prosapio. Riders take one massive plummet and then, after a mere five-storey climb, plummet again. “We had to invent technology to blast riders up that five-storey hill,” she says. Verrückt claims the “world’s tallest” title from the Kilimanjaro waterslide, in Rio de Janeiro, 50 m high. (Prosapio won’t say exactly how tall Verrückt will be.) Verrückt riders will have a long time to contemplate the wet and wild ride before them: to board the monstrous waterslide, they must climb 264 stairs.
The fastest car

imagesCALYG8CSWhat will be the fastest street-legal car of 2014? In September, the Porsche 918 Spyder, a plug-in hybrid with two motors on its front and rear axles, set a new record at Germany’s famed Nürburgring track. It completed one 20.6-km lap in an incredible 6:57, slashing the previous record of 7:12—set by the 2010 Dodge Viper ACR. Some predict the Viper could return to the track this year to reclaim the title. The 2014 SRT Viper, with its powerful V-10 engine, retails for over $100,000, and even has a mini-map of the Nürburgring moulded into its interior.
The biggest telescope

In April, construction is set to begin on the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT), which will be the biggest, most powerful optical telescope in the world. The TMT, which will sit near the summit of the Mauna Kea volcano in Hawaii, will allow astronomers to study planet and star formation, massive black holes, the birth of galaxies and even peer back in time to the edge of our observable universe. A joint project of the Association of Canadian Universities for Research in Astronomy, the University of California and the California Institute of Technology (with China, India and Japan as partners), the TMT’s already been ten years in the making, and should be complete within a decade. Compared to current Earth-based telescopes, its abilities will be astronomical: the biggest ones are now about 8-to-10 m in diameter, but the TMT will be triple that size. In telescopes, bigger is always better.
