"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.

I'm sure Brian Nelson is a fine businessman, and he's probably a leader in the party tent business, not. But I'm pretty sure this is the worst business web site I've ever seen.

We received winter-storm damage from yesterdays snow storm and apparent wind
Today Lisa called really upset telling me that our house received some damage from a terrible storm that passed through Georgia early yesterday morning. Schools were closed and most people stayed home during this terrible storm. I told her to calm down and take a picture of the damage so we can make a claim on our insurance and to email me the picture so I can be prepared before coming home from work. I tell you after looking at the picture it really makes me cherish our usual balmy climate, and reminds us not to take life for granted. I decided to post the picture but not on the front page due to it being quite graphic. So if you want to see what our damage looks like click here.

This is too good to be true unless you are an Atlanta Thrashers fan.
Category: uproarious - posted by: Bruce.
The Atlanta Thrashers is a semi-pro hockey team, Okay a NHL pro hockey team that plays in Atlanta hence the name “Atlanta” Thrashers. Had to place their goaltender Byron Dafoe on injured reserves because he injured his back, how you ask because he slipped on ice outside the team's hotel. Maybe that explains why the Thrashers are rapidly falling in the Southeast Standings and the laughing stock of the NHL.

Can you believe it!? Pretty soon, I'll be able to quit my job and live off the boy!

I’m so proud of Mason, my 6-year old son. This morning Mason called me at the office to tell it was snowing, like I didn’t have to drive 33 miles to work traveling about 40 MPH because of it! He told me that he would make me a snowman, so I can see it when I got home from work. This is when I said you know Mason you don’t have to make the same kind of snowman that all the other kids make, use your imagination. So when I got home I was quite surprised to see his Homer Simpson creation not only for how good it was but he even kept my favorite pint cold for me.

Winter Driving Tips for Southern Drivers, I guess
Category: nifty - posted by: Bruce.
As you can tell by now we got snow in Georgia today. After my drive in and seeing the idiots on the road I decided to offer some tips to help my southern neighbors with driving in the snow. Pay attention as these tips may save your life.

  • Northern drivers apparently always have the right of way in winter. You must yield to their superior driving ability in snow. If you ask them they will tell you that this is really not up for debate.
  • Only slam your brakes if you need some time off from work. You’ll be laid up home in a neckbrace for the next six weeks.
  • Lock De-Icer gets stored outside the vehicle. Not in the glove box.
  • Turn your damn brights off. Now.
  • And really, why are you driving? Wouldn’t you rather just stay indoors and watch the news clips of people slamming into each other in 1" of snow?
Do you northern drivers have any other tips for us southern drivers?

Clowning Around
So you thought that being a celebrity was all red carpets, gala premieres and photo shoots? Clearly you never glanced into the private life of every celebrity. For if you had, you would know that behind every celebrity there is another side, a lighter side: their inner clown.

The rules of this Worth1000 game are: Turn any famous person or celebrity into a Celebrity Clown. Don't just photoshop their face into a clown suit - give them makeup and clown coloring.

Hate Mail
Category: uproarious - posted by: Bruce.
Note this hate mail was sent to me in response to the 2/20/04 post I did called Dead Weight which is about people who weigh more than 300 pounds have to be buried in special caskets, known in the trade as “triple wides”. [Spelling and grammar are hers]

I guess you never stop MR. DOWNS? You turn you back on the LAMB OF GOD and you waist you’re time writing about the shameless women you cavort inside. Now you must make fun of the deceased. God did not put you on this earth to spend each. Right?

How are your parents to be buried? Will you mock their funerals with anticipation and agrimony?I wouldn’t be surprised.This is a legititimate business as you know it. They are dserving of the respect they are giving to the loved ones of AMERICAa WHICH INCLUDES MY AUNT WHO IS TO BE BURIED IN THIS FASHION.!!!!!!!!! I am preying for your soul Bruce. And preying that your relatives find something you APPROVE OF to be burried in. I didn’t know there was such a thing as a casket snob but now I do.

Yours in Christ jesus,

When there’s no more room in hell,
The dead will walk the earth, man I love that line and it will be in theaters starting March 19, 2004. I am a huge fane of the original dawn of the dead movie, back during the day around 1980, I must have seen it about a dozen times. Yes back in high school we use to hit the midnight movies almost every weekend. The Dawn of the Dead site just went online, with quite a creepy and gritty design. Lots of cool content... zombie history, survival tips, games, photos and downloads. If you don't know what this movie is about, watch the trailer. I have a feeling there will be a lot of zombie surprises not shown in the preview. And if you haven't seen the original, what's wrong with you? Go rent it, you zombie neophyte. By the way don’t forget to join the Zombie Army.

Which Olsen twin is right for you? No, you can't have both!

Thanks to hours of grueling research through publications from TigerBeat to TeenPeople a test has been developed to determine your best match.

It seems neither Olsen twin is for me, apparently I’m either a sleazeball or just to boring.

Maybe gillette's solution should be 13 blades?

Miss the Cola Wars? Now introducing the razor wars. One from Gillette has three blades, and two strips and a 77% awareness without an ad campaign- and is available for free. The other has four blades and is eating market share but the idea may have been borrowed from the competitor. Maybe gillette's solution should be 13 blades?
