We don’t like to report on the finances of our friends, so we will let David explain about why he, David Choe, was on the cover of the New York Times today, just below the Egypt soccer riots, and why he and Facebook will continue to be tied together in some sort of way.

Fuck, have you had the dream where you ARE this guy?!? And then some kind of happy accident happens , and as you’re in the middle of this glorious car crash , you stop to realize , that there is actually no such thing as an accident, and no chance encounters, and that everything has a direct purpose ? am I the only one that has this dream ? You never had that dream?It’s actually very very similar to another dream I have where I wake up at noon to my phone ringing, and the ringtone is butterfly wings, I pick it up and it’s Howard stern, the view, Ellen, Charlie rose, telemundo and every news outlet in the world and they are all begging to have morning breath phone sex with me. I rub one out quick to a cacophony of moans and then I get up and see my picture on the cover of the new york times and I find out that I’m the most highest paid decorator alive……..To be continued ☺ LOL”

Obama suggests you should leave now…

A crowd that is protesting like this generally means you aren’t going to be ruling much longer. And Obama thinks Mubarak should go now, too. Mubarak told Egyptians during a television speech ““The Hosni Mubarak who speaks to you today is proud of his achievements over the years in serving Egypt and its people,” he said, wearing a dark suit and seeming vigorous in the speech broadcast on state television. “This is my country. This is where I lived, I fought and defended its land, sovereignty and interests, and I will die on its soil.”

Actually, he is going to be kicking it in exile in Paris or London, but who is counting where one dies these days?

The Egyptian Military has detained over 50 men trying to break into the Egyptian National Museum and loot some of country’s archaeological treasures, if not the world’s archaeological treasures. Luckily, the gold funerary mask of King Tutankhamun that draws millions of tourists a year was not harmed, at least yet. It is amazing how we in the West care so much about the art in a country going through a revolutionary process, but to be honest, those are the types of things the West thinks about. If someone broke into our house, they better not take our Al Green records.

Science figures out how the Red Sea parted for Charlton Heston, er, Moses

Figured that shit out! Score one for scientist, you bible heads. The Guardian reports that “Researchers at the National Centre for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the University of Colorado at Boulder (CU) claim to have used computer modelling to reconstruct the various wind and wave combinations that could have produced the dry land bridge described in Exodus.

The researchers determined that a strong east wind, blowing overnight, could have driven back the waters on a coastal lagoon in northern Egypt long enough for the Israelites to walk across the exposed mud flats before the waters rushed back in, engulfing the Pharaoh’s cavalry.”

Sorry Moses, no lifting of arms and parting a major body of water for the Israelites to pass on through. Tad more about winds and muds and stuff.
