Genki Sudo is a recently retired mixed martial artist and a kickboxer from Japan. He's fought on K-1 HERO'S, UFC, and Pancrase. But I'm not going to talk about his Fighting career. To me the sport is boring. You may not know who's going to win but you pretty much know the outcome the whole time, and it's not even visually pleasing. Genki Sudo is a musician and a dancer. This music video of his is incredible. Not just Genki Sudo, but his whole group of dancers move like some kind of alien force, and in unison. It's a pretty good song too.

This phone has to be one of the coolest phones I've ever seen. This concept is getting allot of attention which means it's only a matter of time before it's made for production. Kristian Ulrich created this brilliant phone with a custom Android interface and the most unique functionality ever. It's only draw back from the market is the battery for running three displays simultaneously for an extended period of time, does not yet exist. Rather then explain the phone and how it works, heres an inspiring video.

AT&T is implementing a new contract termination for those who are abusive to there customers service. I guess they see their customers whom are angry enough to complain about there services in an ill mannered way, would be punished by not being able to live out their contract. They just gave everyone that is fed up with AT&T's crap, a way out of their contract. I wonder how many people will call up AT&T just to curse at the poor operator just to get out of the contract free and clear. It's funny to see a business as big as AT&T start to drown because they'd rather loose customers then fix the problems they complain about.
AT&T spokesman Seth Boom says this “is about ensuring that our employees are treated with respect and not subjected to verbal abuse…and ensuring they’re able to help all of our customers. It’s also designed to be used in extreme cases and would only happen after multiple incidents and warnings." “We’re not saying customers can’t get upset. This is about truly extreme and abusive situations.”
What constitutes an "extreme and abusive situation" is too objective for those who actually want to stay with their provider. This is all actually a precaution for the changes they will be making to people's service plans in May. According to their spokes person, in an interview on Broadband Reports,“the company will be implementing a new 150GB monthly usage cap for all DSL customers and a new 250 GB cap on all U-Verse users starting on May 2.” They know this will piss people off so they are making sure they don't have to deal with the storm coming their way. Sprint and Verison are looking better and better, especially if you're an online gamer.

Rep. Scott Randolph (D-FL) is in trouble with Florida House Republicans for saying a new dirty word on the House floor:
"At one point Randolph suggested that his wife "incorporate her uterus" to stop Republicans from pushing measures that would restrict abortions. Republicans, after all, wouldn't want to further regulate a Florida business.
Apparently the GOP leadership of the House didn't like the one-liner.
They told Democrats that Randolph is not to discuss body parts on the House floor.
"The point was that Republicans are always talking about deregulation and big government," Randolph said Thursday. "And I always say their philosophy is small government for the big guy and big government for the little guy. And so, if my wife's uterus was incorporated or my friend's bedroom was incorporated, maybe they (Republicans) would be talking about deregulating.
"It's not like I used slang," said Randolph, who actually got the line from his wife. He said Republicans voiced concern about young pages hearing the word uterus."
Talking about lady parts? EEEW COOTIES!!
