Is it just a weird coincidence that four backbone net cables to the mideast have cut within a single week? Or could it be some malicious sabatage or ... terrorist? One thing is it doesn't effect the United States that much as almost all the internet content is located in the States. I do feel bad though for all my Iranian viewers as they can't read my blog!!

Anyway, here is some links:

Shout outs to Eli Manning keeping his composure and leading the Giants to victory

Shout out to James Tyree and his circus catch. You barely heard his name until today

Shout to Burress for coming close to his predicted score of 23-17

Shout out to Giants Defensive cordinator, Steve Spagnuolo and the defense for constantly pounding Tom Brady and keeping the game a low scoring game. Too bad he probably wont be with the Giants next year as he will likely get a head coaching position.

Shout out to Tom Petty for playing his best songs at half time and after all these years still sounding great

Shout to coach Tom Coughlin for not turning red

Shout to Kevin Boss for filling in for Jeremy Shockey as almost an exact replica.

Shout to Bud Light for having the best commercials.

Shout down to Bill Belichick for leaving the game before it was over and for giving the worst press conference... What was that mumbling?

Want to be an instant millionaire?

Report tax evasion to the IRS.

Under IRC Section 7623 the IRS authorizes the payment of awards from the proceeds of amounts the IRS collects by reason of the information provided by an individual (aka the Whistleblower). The reward is between 15-30% of the tax recovered depending on the amount of information you provide. So if you provide information that leads to the IRS recovering $10 million in taxes you could be an instant millionaire!

To be eligble the amount in dispute must exceed $2 million dollars (including tax,interest,penalties, etc.) and taxable income for the violator must exceed 200k in any year of issue.

Oh and don't forget to claim your reward on your tax return, as yes... it is subject to income tax.

To file a claim use Form 211 Download Here

That's right,
The chess-king dies at age 64 and there's 64 squares on the chess board.**

For the tin foiled headed conspirarist this is the perfect concidence for a conspiracy theory.

RIP to Bobby Fisher 1/18/08.

**Some could argue that the chess board actually contains 204 squares if you count the squares made by individual squares, but let's not get too technical here. 8x8 + 7x7 + 6x6 + 5x5 + 4x4 + 3x3 + 2x2 + 1x1=204

[Tags: links, rant] is supposedly a revolutionaly site that offers a searchable and playable database of music and songs. The search is free and could be used as an alternative to youtube when trying to play that one song you just want to hear on demand. However I have not been able to use it. I goto the site and find my song and never hear the song. It stops on "loading.." and if you click the song again it says "now playing" but nothing plays. Is the service broke already? Or am I just dumb? I tried it on two computers.

Try it:

My Coworker : Oh.. now I get it... for a second I thought you meant your doctor told you that.
