Last time we tried to get together on a Friday, I had to exit stage left in a hurry, only able to leave behind a few clues about what I thought would be worth yapping about. However, this week, I've found my way back to my old routine. Me blabbing at length about the insanity of it all. What do you say we start out with a repeat offender?
Jail Bird: In the "you've got to be kidding me department", here's some of what's recently been found posted on Twitter: terroristic threats, bragging about crimes, and efforts to recruit fellow criminals.

Naughty GPS (Again): Those darn GPS thingies. One minute you are on a nice paved two-lane highway headed to a RV rally, and the next minute, you are on a narrow dirt logging road traveling further and further back into the Oregon wilderness.

Surf's Up: Hey dude, what's up with the rocks in my surf? Freaky as it may be, the September 24th earthquake that took the lives of more than 400 Pakistanis, left behind some brand new real estate. An island where there was only waves before. Marvel at the power of the earth in pictures found above and in the link below:
