Anyone know if he was a good surfer? Heard he was, just wondering...

So, Las Vegas, those bookies that always seem to know MORE then the regular shmo.. says the Giants are a mere 16-1 shot to repeat as supe champs. The NY papers, as expected, blasted them as know nothings. Now I understand that the fans are going to say that they don't agree. But considering that the Giants have a lot of unrestricted FA's to sign and many will not be back, and that if you look at the remarkable run the Giants had, and it was remarkable, there are a slew of plays, or shall I say non plays, that did not happen and if they did, the Giants would not make the playoffs or, win in the playoffs. Just saying. And maybe those bookies know more than they are telling. Congrats to the Giants, they played amazing when they had to.

 ;D Anybody watching this? Here's a trailer.. Very funny stuff..  ;D  Its on the science channel, Saturdays at 10pm.

So, how is this going to happen? Anyone know who will fill in for Clarence? And the bigger Q is, how can Springsteen play without this guy? I mean, Led Zep cancelled their tours after Bonzo died.. Just can't see Bruce go on without him, but that's my selfish feelings..  :'(

Here's a trailer that is supposed to run during the game Sunday..  ;D

McDonald’s confirms that it’s no longer using ‘pink slime’ chemical in hamburgers....  McDonald's announced last week that, as of last August, is has stopped using ammonium hydroxide in the production of its hamburgers. MSNBC reports that the chemical, used in fertilizers, household cleaners and even homemade explosives, was also used to prepare McDonalds' hamburger meat.
And while the announcement is making headlines, you may (or may not) want to know about some other unusual chemicals being used in the production of some of our most-popular foods:
The International Business Times lists some other questionable chemicals showing up in our foods:
Propylene glycol: This chemical is very similar to ethylene glycol, a dangerous anti-freeze. This less-toxic cousin  prevents products from becoming too solid. Some ice creams have this  ingredient; otherwise you'd be eating ice. 
  Carmine: Commonly found in red food coloring, this chemical comes from crushed cochineal, small red beetles that burrow into cacti. Husks of the beetle are ground up and forms the basis for red coloring found in foods ranging from cranberry juice to M&Ms.
  Shellac: Yes, this chemical used to finish wood products also gives some candies their sheen. It comes from the female Lac beetle.
  L-cycsteine: This common dough enhancer comes from hair, feathers, hooves and bristles.
  Lanolin (gum base): Next time you chew on gum, remember this. The goopiness of gum comes from lanolin, oils from sheep's wool that is also used  for vitamin D3 supplements.
  Silicon dioxide: Nothing weird about eating sand, right? This anti-caking agent is found in many foods including shredded cheese and fast food chili.
  So, what moved McDonald's to make the change in their hamburger production? In a statement posted on its website, McDonald's senior director of quality systems Todd Bacon wrote:
  "At the beginning of 2011, we made a decision to discontinue the use of ammonia-treated beef in our hamburgers.  This product has been out of our supply chain since August of last year. This decision was a result of our efforts to align our global standards for how we source beef around the world."
  The U.S. Agriculture Department classifies the chemical as "generally recognized as safe." McDonald's says they stopped using the chemical months ago and deny the move came after a public campaign against ammonium hydroxide by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.
You can watch video of Jamie Oliver showing the process of using ammonium hydroxide on meat here:

The food industry uses ammonium hydroxide as an anti-microbial agent in meats, which allows McDonald's to use otherwise "inedible meat."
On his show, Oliver said of the meat treatment: "Basically we're taking a product that would be sold in the cheapest form for dogs and making it 'fit' for humans."
Even more disturbing, St. Louis-based dietician Sarah Prochaska told NBC affiliate KSDK that because ammonium hydroxide is considered part of the "component in a production procedure" by the USDA, consumers may not know when the chemical is in their food.
"It's a process, from what I understand, called 'mechanically separated meat' or 'meat product,'" Prochaska said.  "The only way to avoid it would be to choose fresher products, cook your meat at home, cook more meals at home."

Hi - it seems an aspiring film maker and actor from Merrick L.I. win a contest by GM for their commercial using a GM car or truck. In it, you will see the kid jump and cheer because he got a new Camaro for graduation. I saw it during the Giants/Niners game. Pretty cool... I believe it will be shown during the Supe too...
