  • Superheros out-rank politicians this Halloween

    Posted by O'Reilly




    Iron Man is more likely to knock on your door this Halloween than President Obama.

    Presidential Halloween costumers are popular every election year, but during this race, neither Obama nor Romney are coming close to movie characters and superheroes.

    For adults and kids alike, the top-selling costumes are Spider-Man, Batman and The Avengers, including characters such as Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor and Black Widow.

  • Paint and logo up your house and get your mortgage paid!

    “Brilliant.  If they rolled this out across the country, it could fix the economy.”  - FOX NEWS

    The paintjob above may look like the work of a madman, but the color combo packs a big punch.

    If you let us turn your house into a billboard we’ll pay your mortgage. When we’re done we’ll repaint your home back to any colors you choose. Oh yeah ... the repaint is on us. 

    Looking better?

    Why are we doing this? Because somebody has to do something!!!!

    The housing market is a mess. Every three months, 250,000 families lose their homes to foreclosure. Foreclosure stinks!!!  It lowers property values in the entire neighborhood. It increases crime, homelessness, and unemployment.  It causes divorce and suicide. 

    Government programs aren’t bailing out homeowners fast enough so rather than sit back and watch, we decided to do something about it.

    Introducing the "Billboard Home" Rescue Plan.

    We painted our first home a few months ago.  We saved a family from ruin and a neighborhood from depreciating home values. Now were’ ready to help 3000 more families and 3000 more neighborhoods. The $925,000 we’re raising will help us achieve our goal. 

    A contribution of $34 from you right now will keep a family in their home for an extra day.  $238 will keep a family in their home for a week.  $1061 will provide relief for a family for a month.  More importantly, the money you provide will help a family save money so they can get back on their feet. Whatever you can contribute please contribute today.

    Need a new ride? Is that Honda Civic just not cutting it for you anymore? Take a look at our list of the most expensive cars on the planet. That’s not the smell of burning rubber. That’s envy.

    1. Bugatti Veyron Super Sports

    Price: $2.4 million

    If you were Bill Gates, you could have a garage with ten of these bad boys (actually, quite a few more than that...). They say you get what you pay for, and this car is the fastest street legal vehicle, capable of hitting a face-melting 267 miles per hour. Is $2.4 million a little too rich for your blood? If that's the case, don't worry—you can buy the “basic” version for a paltry $1.7 million.

    2. Aston Martin One-77

    Price: $1.85 million

    This is the Aston Martin that James Bond wished he had. With a top speed of 220 miles per hour and 750 horsepower, you had better have a license to drive this thing. A license to kill, that is. You'd better try to buy one quickly though, since only 77 were produced, hence the name.

    3. Pagani Zonda Clinque Roadster

    Price: $1.85 million

    The Zonda is another car just shy of a cool $2 million, with a look that had to have been inspired by those little RC cars you cruised around as a kid (and your dad subsequently ran over in his real car). This powerhouse can go from zero to sixty in 3.4 seconds—that's longer than it takes most people to finish picking their noses. With a top speed of 217 miles per hour, your nose might get blown off.

    4. Lamborghini Reventon

    Price: $1.6 million

    Finally, the prices are starting to go down. Set at an affordable $1.6 millos, the Reventon is the defacto wet dream for Lamborghini fans. And it's a real bargan compared to the Zonda above, considering that the Reventon can reach 60 miles per hour in a tenth of a second less at 3.3 seconds.

    5. McLaren F1

    Price: $970,000

    Just for you cheapos in the audience, here's a car that costs less than $1 million. Nearly 20 years ago in the early 1990s, this was the fastest car that money could buy—and it's still freaking insane. The McLaren F1 can reach 60 miles per hour in 3.2 seconds, faster than both the Zonda and the Reventon.
  • Are you kidding me?

    Fargo, North Dakota resident “Donna” recently called in to Y94, a local radio station, to complain about deer crossing signs—specifically, that the signs were directing the deer to cross at unsafe locations. She helpfully suggested that the deer crossings be moved to safer stretches of road, like school zones. The radio segment was subsequently posted to YouTube and now has 1.6 million views. Donna later called back and talked to Y94 about her deer sign misunderstanding and her Internet notoriety.
