Chevron's annual profit for 2007 was $18.7 billion.

Nearly $9 billion of money spent on Iraqi reconstruction is unaccounted for because of inefficiencies and bad management.

R.I.P Triop

So for about a month we grew our Triop more than 2 inches long. The craziest thing was when you by the kit you get hella eggs and from the eggs we got 8 triops and 6 sea monkeys. In two weeks there was one triop that was a beast and everyday we would be missing a triop and we figured out that the beast was eating everyone. So by the third week he was all alone and the water was just nasty. So we finally decided to change his water and that wasn't a good idea within an hour he was upside down...done. Sucks cause we actually like his ugly ass but oh well.

Check him out...ugly - right???

Experiment is done and lets move on to bigger and better things...stay live!

1st Place

Congrats to Leon for winning the custom painted Dunny by Gem.

You are looking at the long awaited grand prize. I wanted to appologize to Leon because he had to come back 3 times for his prize. I even tried to persaude him take a Skull Candy MP3 watch instead but he really wanted the Dunny - I don't blame him I would have waited too. It took a little over a week to complete and at one point the head popped off and rolled all over our new floors.

It was hard work but somebody had to do it, thanks Gem.

Should we have another raffle for custom Dunny #2? Gem what do you think?

I just got this Penfield Mackinaw jacket in black, and I'm super stoked that we carry this in our store. I live in the outer sunset and it's usually foggy and cold in that side of town. Well, anyways it sucks going to downtown and its sunny, and your wearing a thick bubble winter jacket. Not with this jacket its thin,lightweight (thermore insulation) and warm, looks good in any wide range of weather condition.

Triops Round 2

So our fist batch of Triops started good but in a couple of weeks Chris killed them. We had 5 Triops swimming around and they were about a half inch long. But Chris wanted to feed them like an all you can eat buffet which made the water hella dirty and more food means more shit. The water was pretty low from evaporation and dirty so he gave them fresh bottled water and when I checked up on them they were belly side up. Boo!

This time we gave them an upgrade...a bigger home and tropical weather right on Gem's office desk.

Results are in and the winners are....?

So tonight was the weight for the team that gain/lost 20 lbs

Previous weight: 183 lbs
Current weight: 194 lbs
Total weight gain: 11 lbs

Previous weight: 176 lbs
Current weight: 172 lbs
Total weight loss: -4 lbs


Previous weight: 138 lbs
Current weight: 152 lbs
Total weight gain: 14 lbs

Previous weight: 167 lbs
Current weight: 156 lbs
Total weight loss: -11 lbs

Tom and Gem wins.

How did Tom gain the weight: Pretty simple, I had to drink a protien shake in the morning and right before I slept. And in between just ate as much as I could. I didn't really hit the gym which wasn't a good idea because now I have fat then muscle. So who knows maybe I might have to do a PX90???

(this is *Chris taggin in on Tom's post)
.... how did I lose 4 ponds? I cheated myself :(
But this is the original regiment that I stuck to that made me lose 10lbs the previous month before the bet.

Wake up to: fruit, one serving... ex. banana, apple

1/2 later: small bowl of oatmeal

Snack: handful of raw almonds or raw cashews *handful= 8-10 pieces

Lunch: Lean meat like grilled fish or chicken with a serving of brown rice

Snack: handful of raw almonds or raw cashews *handful= 8-10 pieces

*Hit the gym

Dinner: Lean meat with veggies

1/2 later: Protein shake

Snack u before sleep: handful of raw almonds or raw cashews *handful= 8-10 pieces

The rules: No Dairy, No sweets, and try to minimize the salt. Only carbs you can have brown rice. There are pastas, tortillas, and even bread made from brown rice, these are okay. Trust, just try this for two weeks and you'll see mad results.
