You like dags?

Hey everyone, Victoria and I have been talking about getting a dog for awhile now. I've always said I will get one once I graduate college. I even went as far as to make sure my apartment post college was animal friendly.

I just wanted to make sure that I had the time to put towards the young and restless life destroyer known as a puppy. And some of you may know that Victoria and I have been checking the Wisconsin Humane Society dogs daily, sending each other pictures of the dogs we would like to pick. We even made a trip a week or 2 ago and realized that the turnover rate at the humane society is insanely higher then you would assume. I thought maybe a dog sits there for months, maybe a year, and finding homes is near impossible. It's the opposite, these dogs are gone usually same day they hit the showcase. I'd be surprised to see a dog last longer then 1 week in this place without getting scooped up. It really is a great deal too, you are helping the world solve an over abundance of dogs without homes, and its an affordable price (between $125 and $250).

Please note that for those of you who haven't researched dogs, a purebread breader sells dogs for $500-$1k. After you get the dog, you buy a couple hundred in supplies, food, and then couple hundred for Shots, Deworming, Flea treatment, and if you're smart, please tell me you are, the neutering or spaying. (If you splurge, you get a microchip inserted for quick and easy identification by the pound/firedept/police) Now heres the big seller. The $250 humane society price includes all of this. Because for the 2 weeks before they hit the showcase, these dogs have been taken care of. Completely. So now you help out the streets, and you save $1-$2k in monies. A win win in my book. And just look at him!

Phantom Police Jammer

So I was in my car this morning, and a crazy commercial starts up about "making your car invisible to police speed detection." I am kind of interested simply because of the blatant disregard to the law. The "Phantom" is self-proclaimed illegal in YOUR state, and renders your car invisible to all police speed detection devices. It is available to try free for 30 days, and this really gets me, if you get a ticket in those 30 days Phantom will pay for it. (some restrictions apply)

I am pretty curious now and I make sure to look this thing up when I get to work. Unfortunately I do not find the actual Phantom website. But I did find this. Which is an interesting read. I dunno if it is the same phantom radar jammer I heard this morning, but while reading I found out that police have radar detector-detectors. So the people that drive around with radar detectors are probably getting noticed easily by police and singled out and not given the benefit of the doubt. Also, I was pretty amazed that the technology does exist to jam the police. Atleast back when that was tested it was working. Who knows how fast the police's detection technology is updating.

The bottom line, no I probably wouldn't invest in something like this because I feel that anything which screws with the police equipment is most likely to anger them or make them suspicious. Which gives them all the more reason to pull you over and disregard your civil rights.
