Bob Barker shows us what the 1970s were like.

What a pretty little outfit, good girl! Look at you, wow, you're not just a pretty face! Now come over here, stand close to me.

Not so stealthy as we'd first imagined...

Sea Shepherd's new 50-knot biodiesel-powered 'stealth boat' the Ady Gil (formerly the Earthrace, and holder of the speed record for circumnavigation) has been cut in half and sunk after a collision with the Shonan Maru 2, in the annual round of conflict (previously) between conservationists and, erm, 'cetacean researchers'. The crew of six have been rescued and are reportedly uninjured.

After Rod died, it just hasn't been the same

Long rumoured, after 35 years on the show, Bob Barker is leaving the Price is Right. His first ever show was September 4th, 1972 (note how much less spazzy the audience is on that intro?). No longer will we hear his reminder to have your pets spayed or neutered, but there's still the DJ&T Foundation that he started to help distribute vouchers and help support low cost spaying and neutering of pets.

Come on down!!!

Come on down!!! You're the next contestant on the Price is Right! A fixture of television since 1972, who can forget the Pricing Games or the lovely Barker Beauties? [warning: swimsuit porn, pop-ups, gator, what would your mother think?] My favorite pricing game was Plinko. Learn how to build your own Plinko for your home and fine tune your mathematical strategy and hopefully get on the Record Book. Even if Bob Barker thinks the show's going to end soon, you can participate in Fantasy Internet adaptions if it does. I bid one dollar!

And, remember....have your Game Show Host spayed or neutered. Why are all the memories of my youth continuing to remind me that I'm getting old? Arg. Guess it's time for me to get an exam, too.

Bob Barker,

Bob Barker, inspiration to all of us who want to someday host a mid-morning game show, seems to be throwing in the towel.

Effective Web Design and the Tao of Plinko

Effective Web Design and the Tao of Plinko all this time I have been reading the wrong web sites to figure out the web. What I needed to be doing was spending some quality time with Bob Barker and friends on The Price is Right! Oh yeah, rumor has it that Bob Barker is set to retire next season (the shows 30th).
