AIG – Down and out after a bailout, GO FOR A SPA

What do you do after a federal bailout? Looking at looming unemployment? Worried about your future?

Nahh, don’t worry. How about go spend $440,000 in a posh resort in california?

According to CNN, that is what AIG did..

..its executives, complete with spa treatments, banquets and golf outings, according to lawmakers investigating the company’s meltdown

AIG sent its executives to the coastal St. Regis resort south of Los Angeles, California, even as the company tapped into an $85 billion loan from the government it needed to stave off bankruptcy. The resort tab included $23,380 worth of spa treatments for AIG employees, according to invoices the resort turned over to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

I guess the executives have a different rule than the middle class.

Mover and shaker (neat site too) – StormPulse.com

This is a neat site for tracking storms, hurricanes, etc. Lots of technology behind it but the info that they are using to power it is all FREE. They are pulling info from the Hurrican center and a few other research facilities.

For the hurricane Ike (currently in the gulf of mexico), this website gives you:
-aggregates a dozen different projection models
-give you wind forecast
-historical track of the current hurricane
-lots more tools.

Just look at the Alexa stats for hits.

I think they can sell the site for a few MM after a few years. Or like weather.com, 3.5 BILLION price tag? Maybe a few MM…

Note, I am not related to this company in any way, shape or form.

Boeing Dreamliner 777 stunt – low flyby by Cathy Pacific pilot

What’s better than getting a new car? How about a new plane?

 Cathy Pacific bought a fleet of the latest Boeing 777-300ER and recently took delivery of the plane with an estimated cost up to US$253 million per plane. In the cockpit of one of the planes was Captain Ian Wilkinson.

Captain Ian took the plane for a joy ride, literally. He did a 322mph flyby at 28 feet over the 9,000-foot runway at Paine Field, a regional airport located next to Boeing’s Everett facilities, the manufacturing site of the new 777-300 he was flying to Hong Kong.

He was fired from his job. It was reported that he was congratulated initially until the video circulated the internet and it caught the attention of Hong Kong’s Civil Aviation Authority. It was also covered on CNN. 

About the 777-300ER
The 777-300ER is the Extended Range (ER) version of the 777-300 and contains many modifications, including the GE90-115B engines, which are the world’s most powerful jet engine with 115,300 lbf (513 kN) thrust. (wikipedia)

12 foot ladder sticking out from a car window on Interstate 59 in Texas

Once in a while, you will find a funny pictures about people doing some stupid circus act but this takes the cake for being funny and dangerous at the same time.

Amazing that he did not take out a lot of cars (or cause a major accident) in his dumb act. This guy was driving on Interstate 59 in Houston.
