Maybe Tyra is Right?

So for years Tyra Banks has been telling me for years via America's Next Top Model that being a model is hard and is more than just having a pretty face. Well I was watching the Real Housewives of New York (I know it's a tangent just follow along) and I was curious to find out what these ladies do for a living so I did a little internet trolling. Come to find one of the ladies runs religious jewelry internet store front and (wait for it) she models the jewelry. I just had to post the pictures because she really seems to be the worst choice for a model. I mean sure she is attractive but in her eyes I see a combination of crazy and scared. Oh and did I mention her range of expressions. Well just take a look for yourself.

Neat But Expensive

I was listening to Coast to Coast Am Live last night (no big surprise) when I heard about a new light bulb that could last up to 10 years. It looks pretty cool too. What's the draw back you ask? Only the 120$ price tag. I highly doubt that even if I replaced my regular LED light bulb every 3 months that I would ever recoup the investment from this purchase. None the less still cool.

Something I can get behind

With the recent state of the economy I'm sure we are all reminded that most of us are one or two paychecks away from being homeless. I have been drawn to news stories about modern day
Hoovervilles taking root but today I heard of the EDAR project and this is something I could really get behind. EDAR stands for Everyone Deserves a Roof. It started as a dare so to speak for someone to invent something "better than the cardboard box". What they got a really cool housing idea. Here is a 3 min video that the LA Times did on it.  One EDAR cost approximately 500 dollars but you can make a smaller donation of say $50.00 and put the wheels on one of these babies. I'm thankful to see innovation like this and that it's for the benefit of those that our society tends to throw away.
