Fishing. I loath fishing, but my kids love it. So I go. I've logged more hours fishing in this summer than the rest of my life combined. I hate it. First you buy all the stuff, poles, reels, lines, hooks, spinners, sinkers, bobbers, a knife, needle-nose pliers, a chain to hold all your fish, and a tackle box to put it all in. Boom, I'm out $100 and that's at Walmart for 3rd-rate sh*t.

#7 on the list of the 10 worst drink concepts of all time.
3 ounces light rum
2 cups crushed ice
3 tablespoons pineapple juice
3 tablespoons coconut milk
1 ounce fresh Atlantic salmon
Salmon head (for garnish)
Blend all ingredients and garnish with a salmon head.
If anyone at the party starts talking about the importance of omega-3 fatty acids, merely gesture at your drink and say, “Eh? Eh? That enough for ya? Later in the evening, give your salmon head a name and have it deliver monologues on the commercialization of independent cinema or why the French Laundry is past its prime. VIA Chow LINK

"I thought that grant would last Jim [Neuthom] at least two years, but I simply didn't realize how many hot-air balloon rides, CDs, and spontaneous dinners at tiny French restaurants are required for an in-depth trout study," said UM professor of agriculture Steven Czymedia, who claimed he was "fascinated" by Neuthom's new theory that fine champagne might be directly related to rainbow trout migratory routes.

Ladies, it's spawning season again - for our andromous friends. Yes, the salmon and steelhead have eaten all summer, I know, I know, while we've all been starving ourselves to paint on bikinis, to make their final labors of love on inland rivers. It's constant sex, pregnancy, then death - doesn't it just feel that way for all of us? VIA Happy Woman Magazine LINK

I think I have always had a fishing problem. Fishing is a disease. The more you fish the more you have to fish until the only way you can fish as much as you have to is to be a millionaire or a fishing guide. I am a fishing guide.

Today she met me at the door, said I would have to choose, if I picked that fishing pole today, she'd be packing all her things and she'd be gone by noon....well I'm gonna miss her when I get home tonight. Right now I'm on this lake shore, and I'm sitting in the sun! I'm sure it'll hit me when I walk thru that door tonight. Yeah, I'm gonna miss her. Oh lookie there, I gotta bite!" - Brad Paisley
"Bass fishermen watch Monday night football, drink beer, drive pickup trucks and prefer noisy women with big breasts.
Trout fishermen watch MacNeil-Lehrer, drink white wine, drive foreign cars with passenger-side air bags and hardly think about women at all.
This last characteristic may have something to do with the fact that trout fishermen spend most of the time immersed up to the thighs in ice-cold water." - New Yorker Magazine
