Monk's Phobia of the Week: Olfactophobia- Fear of smells.

I Think I Found a Shortcut

Happy Monday! Here are a few facts to take you into your work week.

California consumed 15.5 billion gallons of gas in 2004—more than any other foreign nation. (Japan used 15.46 billion gallons in 2004; China used 13 billion gallons.)

The United States used 133 billion gallons of gas in 2004, as much as the next 27 top-consuming nations combined.

Americans bought ten percent more gas in the first half of this year than in the first half of 2000, despite its price being 75 percent higher.

Profits of the top five oil companies for the previous quarter:

ConocoPhillips: $5.2 billion; up 65 percent

Royal Dutch Shell: $7.3 billion; up 40 percent

Exxon Mobil: $10.4 billion; up 40 percent

BP: $7.3 billion; up 30 percent

Chevron: $4.4 billion; up 18 percent

It probably took you about a minute to read all this. In that amount of time in the previous quarter, BP earned $55,000 in net profit.

                    • Attention all normal, average, non-professional poker players out there. Rebuy events are a tournament of a different color and if you not ready for a world class rebuy event, you may be in for an experience that if nothing else might be "less than optimal." A rebuy event at the WSOP is not like a super-satellite with rebuys; it is also not like your local cardrooms Thursday night $60 NLHE w/ rebuys event.  - post by rjbailey

I drive all the way out to the dump, pay my five bucks to get in, and the only bikes laying around are those goofy granny bikes from the late 1970's. Dog, what's the deal? I need some new parts! Ok, enough whining, it's payback time. A real chopper artist can chop any bike, even this crusty old codger cruiser. In fact, the more I looked at the bike, the more I thought it would be a sweet ride. Check out all that chrome, look at that long spindly frame, yeah, I could make this happen...

                            The how-to is a great a step-by-step and has dozens of photos!
