The site is devoted to bringing the 2018 or 2022 FIFA World Cup to the United States. I just signed their petition and you should too! Here's the address: www.gousabid.com/petition Look, we've heard it before -- Americans don't care about the game of soccer, other countries have better players, better fans and are more deserving of the games. Well, this is our chance to prove the doubters and the world wrong, once again. This is our opportunity to show the world we have a deep passion for the game. Be part of the grassroots movement to bring the FIFA World Cup to the United States. Thanks!

Weird-looking cars are a dime a dozen. Far less common are weird-looking cars that can also fly AND have approval from the Federal Aviation Administration. Indeed, as far as we know, there's only one of those babies: The Terrafugia Transition.
The private aircraft/funky-looking car has been in the news before. But the recent announcement that it's going into production sparked mega-searches on the Web. Almost immediately, online lookups for "terrafugia transition" and "terrafugia transition pictures" both, well, took off.
A popular article from the UK's Daily Telegraph explains that the FAA's special exemption allows the vehicle to function as both a "light aircraft" and a car. Normally, for a plane to meet the "light aircraft" designation, it can weigh no more than 1,200 pounds. The Terrafugia Transition weighs 1,320, due primarily to the number of car-related safety features, like airbags and crumple zones. The "light aircraft" designation is key, because licenses for planes with that label require only 20 hours of flying time. Fewer hoops to jump through means more potential sales.
So, how does the plane/car work? Check out the flying car's official video below. So far, 70 people have placed a deposit. The total retail cost: $194,000. Expensive, but really, can you put a price on skipping commercial flights?

It’s so passe to put your dogs in purses and buy them designer clothes these days.
In the newest pet fad, dog owners in China are dyeing their mutts to resemble pandas and tigers, the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph reports.
Chow Chow dogs that normally have golden fur are being dyed white and black to resemble fluffy pandas. Golden Retrievers with light blonde hair are painted orange and given black stripes to look like tigers.
Oh, I love how China’s burgeoning middle class spends its money on the bizarre. More cute/ridiculous photos after the jump.
A Google search for “dog dye” frighteningly returns 2.7 million hits. There are hundreds of websites that instruct pet owners how to dye their dogs’ fur.
The Daily Mail reports that spending in the U.K. on pets has increased by 500% from 1999 to 2008, at the expense of the animals’ dignity, of course.
Check out this horrifying gallery of pooches dyed in every colour the rainbow has to offer.

I was at the park with my boy and we saw this lady walking down the path and we heard some squawking. It is hard to see, but if you look at the backpack the lady is wearing, there is a small bird, probably a parrot in there. There's a first for everything. I was working down by the 710 fwy in Long Beach a couple weeks ago and I was stuck in traffic. When I finally drove by the accident, I saw the problem. Fortunately, nobody was hurt, but the truck driver lost his mobile home on the turn. Imagine making the call to your boss after that happens. "Hey boss, you'll never believe what just happened, and no I wasn't speeding!" I still don't understand how this accident occurred, because with that turn, the load should have fallen in the other direction.
