"The Daily Nonsense report” showing on http://BruceDowns.Diaryland.com is just what the name implies, just nonsense. I update this nonsense everyday with links to a wide variety of weird, funny, strange, and just plain entertaining sites that the Internet, so frequently, provides us. On occasion I may feature links that doesn’t necessarily meet the previously mention criteria but are my personal thoughts and observations. I do put witty taglines on this nonsense and mail them to your mother on occasion, especially when you have been bad. So have fun, make comments, and come back often.

Currently over 1.3 million humans for sale!
Category: claptrap - posted by: Bruce.

Have you been thinking about putting yourself up for sale lately? Ever wonder how much money you could get on the open human market? HumanForSale.com will attempt to place a value on your life using a variety of criteria in 4 basic facets of life (physical, mental, lifestyle, personality).

In case you were wondering I am worth exactly $2,149,672.00. Lisa got a damn good deal when she married me! Folks that should put me in the top 10 for the day.

What are you worth? As the site says, the more honestly you answer the questions, the more realistic the dollar value returned will be.

Dead weight
Category: Twaddle - posted by: Bruce.
As some of you may know, I’m on a diet. On 1/5/04 I weighed 192 lbs and today I weigh 174 lbs. In my office 17 people have loss a total 137.5 lbs in 40 days. A couple of us were talking about our weight loss when one person pointed out that people who weigh more than 300 pounds have to be buried in special caskets, known in the trade as “triple wides”. I had a gut feeling that this was a load of baloney, but in a roundabout way, he pointed out that this is the bread and butter of some casket makers, particularly Goliath Casket. They’ve really taken a chunk out of the casket business by harpooning deals with major casket dealers.

Many funeral directors say this problem of burying the portly is affecting more than just casket size. Hearses too, need to be made wider as American waistlines increase each year. It may weigh heavily on your mind, but here’s the skinny: “People are living larger and they’re dying larger, and industries have to adapt to that situation,” says Allen Steadham, executive director of the International Size-Acceptance Association, an advocacy group for the obese.

Let me just point out that Funeral Depot is a very tacky name.
