Now Playing - Want You Bad by the Offspring

So, I try to keep up with the news on a daily basis, and I've been keeping tabs on Saddam Hussein's trial over there in Baghdad. I may be the opnly guy who thinks it's hilarious how out of touch with reality this guy is. Of course the first Gulf War failed to get him, he bounces around like Jim Carrey in The Mask.

Judge: Please state your name and occupation
Saddam: I am Saddam Hussein, President of Iraq.
Judge: You mean former president...
Saddam: No, current.

He then goes on to denounce the trial against him as illegal. Now this is a man I'd like to have a beer with just to see what comes out of his mouth next.

Now, it looks like Hurricane Wilma, the strongest hurricane ever recorded is about to pound the shit out of Florida, and I got to thinking about Huricane names. Firstly, they switch years between female and male names, and they start alphabetically and go on from there. The next one is going to be Xena, and BNJ p[ities the fool who gets his house destroyed by the princess of power hurricane.

I was curious, though... surely a Hurricane John must have come around, and it did:

Storm that wouldn't die

From time to time, a hurricane sails past Hawaii to cross the International Date Line, which makes it a typhoon. In 1994, Hurricane John did even better.
It formed over the eastern Pacific and grew into a hurricane on Aug. 11, with winds reaching 170 mph at one time.

John weakened before hitting Johnson Island, south of Hawaii, where the U.S. Army destroys chemical weapons, but still did $15 million damage. All of the people on the island were evacuated before the storm hit.

John crossed the Date Line on Aug. 28, becoming Typhoon John. It then turned around and crossed back to the east side of the Date Line on Sept. 8, to become Hurricane John again. before dying on Sept. 31.

John covered a total of about 4,000 miles during its month as a storm.

I'm not sure how that correlates to me, but there's something to be said for my longevity and stick-to-itiveness... also Hurricanes that hit Hawaii are rare and uniqie... much like myself, I Imagine. I've never hit hawaii, but I did put a guy named Horatio in a sleper hold once.
