Transform Your Ride Sale

"Pauley" the polar bear and "Bumble" the, uh, Camaro is it?, together to promote auto sales. Transformers movie fever at Polar Chevrolet in White Bear Lake, Minnesota.

Cathedral of St. Paul lit May 2007

Some guy paid to have the Cathedral of St. Paul lit on the occasion of the building's 100th anniversary.

Nice sentiment, but all they did was park a big truck with one bank of white football-stadium lights on a pole and aim 'em directly at the front door of the building.

Point and shoot.

The result was rather harsh.

Transformers movie characters

I'm having a hard time matching up the cars with the Transformers robots. The car design is completely fragmented in the making of the robot. I can't easily tell which robot came from which car.

I've circled the cues I've found, but there aren't a lot of them.

And is it noteworthy that all the cars are General Motors products? Hmm. Wonder why the movie makers decided to do that?

(Pictures are from the Yahoo movie site.)

Super-strong thumb

What's with the bottle cap being popped off using the thumb?

Are you supposed to be able to do that? Something you can do if you drink Miller Lite?
