Summing Up the Weekend
Joplin: Before and After
Photographer Aaron Fuhrman has been posting photos on his Flickr stream of old Google Streetview images of Joplin with shots taken after the tornado. Amazing devastation.
Too bad that guy looking at the pile of rubble that used to be his house got in the shot. Freaking ruined everything. He really needs to start thinking about others.

St. Louisan Makes the Very First Ford Escort Truck
Driving down Forest Park Parkway, the “intra-city 40”, and a truck pulls in ahead of us.
Seems small though. Can’t figure out what’s wrong with this thing, but something is off. Wait a minute…that’s a Ford Escort…that is a Ford Escort truck! …which aren’t supposed to exist and thus are like a chick with a third boob. You know, like at first you hear about it and you are like “Whoa! Three boobs?! That sounds awesome…and then you get there and after looking at it, its not quite right and makes everything look off because they aren’t lined up horizontally, but the third one is aligned vertically with the right boob making her look like some sort of weird dog girl which isn’t what you were hoping. …maybe if there were four and she was evened out…no, even then, its just wrong and your dreams and expectations tempered like so many Saved by the Bell-themed wet dreams after watching Showgirls.
Have you ever really needed a truck but only had an old 4-door car? Lets say you did. Now let me ask you this: In that situation, would you think to yourself “Well I’ve got a shit-load of time on my hands! Lets just make a truck out of my Ford Escort!”
No. You wouldn’t think that. This guy did though. Thought it. Did it. …and now he is legend.

As the Cardinals Play the Cubs, Lets Take a Look on Their Fans
Another Cubs vs Cardinals series starts this weekend and we felt that is was high time we take a look at a sampling of Cubs fans with a little help from our friends at OtherTeamsFans.com
Some of them are more attractive than others, but one this is for sure, they wouldn’t know what winning felt like if it landed on their face. Which it won’t. Because they like the Cubs and they never win. Get it? The Cubs never win. Ever. They’re horrible. Cardinals are good though. Not the Cubs.

Ever Wondered What St. Louis Looked Like Before the Arch?
The forums at SkyscraperPage.com have some great old photos of downtown pre-Arch. You wouldn’t think it would look that foreign, but it does.
