Top 10 Products You Don't Need To Buy (Cuz You Already Own Them)

Well, in light of this supper crappy Obama economy, one needs to save as much money as they can and this list could possibly help out in that regard. Here's your Top 10 Products You Don't Need To Buy, Just Use Something Else That You Already Own.

Skip the harmful Drano, and just grab some baking soda for stubborn drain clogs. If your toilets a little backed up, some laundry detergent can do wonders. If the above products need a little help, you can get in there yourself with a cable tie or duct tape to get the pipes flowing freely again.

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't the laundry detergent need some phosphorous to be effective in this regard? BTW, mixing baking soda and water into a paste and using that to clean your floor grout works very well. Baking soda is great on crab grass too. At least if you have St. Augustine grass. It hurts fescue grass so not an option there.

New OMB Directive Cuts Defense Beyond Budget Cut Agreement

Figures. The DoD is a magnet for any and all budget cuts. Nobody else in government. Any bets on what government agencies will get exemptions?

Unless your agency has been given explicit direction otherwise by OMB, your overall agency request for 2013 should be at least 5 percent below your 2011 enacted discretionary appropriation. As discussed at the recent Cabinet meetings, your 2013 budget submission should also identify additional discretionary funding reductions that would bring your request to a level that is at least 10 percent below your 2011 enacted discretionary appropriation.

Cell Phones VS Sex

1/3 Of Americans Like Their Cell Phones More Than Sex. What? Seriously? What the hell apps are they using to even think that? I'd gladly toss the phone for sex. No question.

Married People Live Longer

Hmmmm. Being Single May Be Harmful To Your Life Expectancy. So married folk may live longer, but are they having more fun than the single folks?

The researchers found the risk of death was 32 percent higher across a lifetime for single men compared to married men. Single women face a 23 percent higher mortality risk, compared to married women.

Green Powered Navy?

Why the hell is the Navy doing this crap? Information Dissemination covered alternative energy here.

The Navy currently buys biofuel from a company called Solazyme, which produces biomass by cooking it. While these are R&D contracts and consist of more than just the fuel, the Navy is still probably paying somewhere between $50 - $150 a gallon for biofuel with these early contracts. For me, I still don't see how a company that has such high costs to cook biomass in a lab is ever going to be competitive on the market, but right now Solazyme is one of the few companies that can produce relatively large quantities of biofuels reliably, so they are getting all the early testing and R&D contracts. Good for them.

Good God. $50-$150 A GALLON??? Here's my first recommended budget cut for the DoD. Now read this piece over at Eagle Speak. I think I agree with his analysis vice Galrahn's. This algae stuff may work but it's not the role of the military to do this. Am I to believe that I'm about to give up my retirement plan to save shit like this?
