Billy v.s Stevey-The Last Crusade

At last. Bill Gates is conquered.


As of Wednesday, Microsoft was officially second.

Microsoft shares shed 4.07 percent on Wednesday to close at 25.01 dollars, dropping its market capitalization -- the number of shares outstanding multiplied by the stock price -- to 219.18 billion dollars.

Apple shares lost 0.45 percent meanwhile to close at 244.05 dollars, giving the company a market value of 222.07 billion dollars.

The only US company with a larger market capitalization than the Cupertino, California-based Apple is ExxonMobil at 278.64 billion dollars.

Apple stock has risen steadily over the past few years as chief executive Steve Jobs, who returned to Apple in 1997, piloted the release of a string of hit products starting with the iPod in 2001, following by the iPhone in 2007 and the iPad this year.

Huh. I guess we all had to expect it.

Cherry Ketchup-A Revolutionary Discovery

Want something new to put on your boring ol' burger?

TRY CHERRY KETCHUP! Here's a recipe:

Cherry Ketchup: If you think that ketchup is made only from tomatoes, think again! Tart fruit can be simmered into delicious lightly spiced ketchup that makes a fine condiment for just about any poultry or meat.
1 1/3 cups
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
1 10-ounce package (2 cups) frozen pitted cherries (not in syrup)
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup water
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Combine pitted cherries, dried cherries, vinegar, water, garlic, sugar, ginger, allspice, cardamom, cinnamon and cayenne in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the fruit is tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool slightly. Transfer to a blender. Cover the lid with a kitchen towel. Holding lid securely in place, blend until smooth. (Use caution when blending hot liquids.) Transfer the ketchup to a small bowl.

There we go! Now, keep in mind I haven't actually tried it yet so if it tastes revolting don't blame me.

My luck is beginning to turn!

My new favourite person in the world right now:Alfred David Klinger


Here's what he said:

"On the surface, Ronald is there to give children enjoyment in all sorts of way with toys, games and food. But Ronald McDonald is dangerous, sending insidious messages to young people."

The counter-argument from Mr.Jim Skinner, CEO of McDonald's:

"He communicates effectively with children and families around balanced, active lifestyles. He does not hawk food,"

Right, that's what they want us to think.

Personally, I think McDonald's is bad. It's like, the devil of fast food chains. McDonalds is just plain gross.

In my opinion anyway.

The world will end as we know it.



Three Hollywood stars were wearing the same romper the other day.


I mean, of all the issues and problems in the world, this one probably takes the cake.

So what if they made THOUSANDS of copies of th efloral patterned jumpsuit? Only ONE STAR is allowed to wear it.

It's kind of upsetting really, if you think about it. There are so many problems in the world and they've decided to tell everybody that (hope this isn't a spoiler!) Audrina Patridge wore it best.
