Hey, you know what sucks? That whole hurricane thing over there. Seriously, I hope everyone’s finding a way to stay safe and dry. And I would never want to make too-much light of such a serious and sensitive situation, however,sometimes we have to make the best of what we’re given, right? It’s that whole “when life gives you lemons, make lemon drink” thing. Unfortunately, this is not one of those situations – this is serious, my friends. With all this rampant flooding going on, we’ve opened the proverbial “Pandora’s Box” by inviting the greatest modern-day terror onto our Eastern shores: sharks. For reals, guys! This is practically the moment these sneaky water bullies have been waiting for all along. Now, because of this "Sandy" chick, they can come to us. Heck, they can practically swim over to our house, knock on our door (and, of course, it’s right when you’re in the middle of doing something important), and then, before you know it, the shark’s inviting themselves in and then and taking a seat in your spot on the couch – geez, can you believe the nerve on this guy? Now, not only do you have to sit-down and look at his stupid shark face sit in your spot on the couch, but you also have to pretend that you’re interested about his stupid shark stories. We get it sharks, you have cool lives. What shallow creatures, those things.

Oh well, I guess we could all learn a valuable life-lessson from these guys:

For those of you who don’t follow baseball (i.e. “everyone”), the San Francisco Giants swept the Detroit Tigers in the World Series not too long ago, crowning the Giants as 2012’s “Last MLB team to not give-up.” Anyways, I’m pretty sure no one outside of San Fransisco or Detroit knew that – and everyone knows we don’t need to give San Francisco anything else to riot about:

Let’s see, what else? How about Halloween? That was this week, right? Here’s a video of someone who should’ve been arrested for being too old to be wearing a costume for fun – “holiday” or not.

Meanwhile, in Japan:

Yep, that’s right: a high-tech, high-power, high-speed porcelain cannon. Next time I’m in Japan and I need to go to the bathroom, I think I’ll just hold it in…

Of course, you didn’t honestly think I could get through the blog without at least mentioning the start of the NBA regular season, did you? I’m already in the process of writing an NBA Power Rankings blog, so I’ll try to keep the two separate – but this is a special occasion:

Ok, to be honest, I have absolutely no idea what the heck this thing is, but I think it’s kinda cute..?

Ok, I looked it up on Wikipedia, and it’s called an Echidna – it’s basically an Australian porcupine that can also lay eggs. Geez, Australia’s a weird place. It’s probably a good thing that it’s so isolated by any other land – elsewise we’d constantly be worried about them spreading their “weird.” Sure, all Australian’s might be good swimmers (and that’s a fact, so it’s not a stereotype), but that’s only because swimming’s the only way out of there!

Ok, I hope everyone has a good week! Happy November.
