Hurricane Rick a "Dangerous Category 5"

MIAMI – Hurricane Rick has become an "extremely dangerous" Category 5 storm off Mexico's Pacific coast.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the storm is now packing sustained winds of 160 mph (260 kph) and it could threaten  Baja California next week.

Authorities in the resort city of Acapulco closed the port to small craft after Rick kicked up heavy waves and gusts of wind.

Rick was centered about 290 miles (470 kilometers) south of the port of Manzanillo, west of Acapulco, on Saturday afternoon and was moving northwest near 15 mph (24 kph).

Forecasters expect it to stay well off the coast for several days before bending east over cooler waters and hitting the peninsula as possibly a Category 2 hurricane sometime Wednesday.

I always wanted a big hurricane to be "Hurricane Rick".

IMDB turns 19 today

Who would've known, the highly addictive website imdb.com turns 19  today.  The website we go to for everything movie and TV is older than sites like Google and Yahoo.

IMDB actually started as a USENET newsgroup in 1990.  It was known as rec.arts.movies, not imdb at this point.  It's popularity on the web soared when it became known as imdb four years later.  In 1998 Amazon bought imdb promising to keep it free to users, although it created a subscriber area for more information on movies.

The site continues to grow.  It now plays video content and has such interactive features as tracking the movie box office results.

Holyfield, Oprah, and Tyson all get Along

Looks like Oprah actually had a worthwhile show on Friday.  A show with Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson was intriquing.

The two have put the incident of 1997 behind them when Tyson but off part of Holyfield's ear.  Holyfield was the gentleman he always is on his Oprah appearance, and Tyson was apologetic, and remorseful in his interview with Oprah.  These boxers by themselves are interesting and get ratings, both together were a great show.

Atlanta may get Pirate Museum

It appears if there is a potential museum looking for a city, the City of Atlanta will be interested.  To go along with the Aquarium, College Football Hall of Fame, Black College Football Hall of Fame, Museum of Patriotism, and a Children's Museum; Atlanta is looking at adding a pirate museum to its Downtown.

Early reports say the pirate museum would be built near Centennial Olympic Park.

Which makes me think... What is a pirate's favorite museum?   Of course, it would be The Museum of aRRRRRt.
