Otod is Dead!

Dear readers and fans  reader and fan……

There comes a time when every great thing must come to an end.

Did it jump the shark and get cancelled? Was it invaded and probed by aliens?        Did Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen sign on as writers?

No dear reader, no.  It’s just that I dont have time to write for this blog any more.  I am now one year old, and have matured as far as I can go.  I fear that by keeping this blog alive, that I may lead you on, and you’ll never get over me.  Well move on I say.  There are plenty of fish in the sea.  Forget about me.

I was thinking of keeping the blog alive with some slight changes. I toyed with “Otow: Obvious Tip Of the Week”, but I was too lazy.   I thought about “Otom: Obvious Tip Of the Month”, but I felt like it would be a blood bath…. end of story. Period. Next?  I pondered “Otoy: Obvious Tip Of the Year”, but I figured I’d forget my wordpress login info by then.

No, my fan (maybe 2)…. I decided to kill it. Murder it. Break its legs and run over its face with a Bronco I bought on ebay.

We had some fun times though. With ridiculous catagories like Fauxtod, effin free otod, & Drunk Ass Otod.  We had some serious tips and some comical tips, but mostly….. tips.  I made some up, I stole some from other blogs, but basically I just tried to do what every other american wanted to do.  Eat fried chicken.

I was gonna make a little movie clip looking back at the good times here at the Otod office….(hehe), with a Sarah Mclachlan track playing in the background….. But I’m too lazy, it’s almost midnight, and I have work tomorrow.  So suck it!

It’s been fun.  Dont bother emailing me, cause I probably wont be checking that email address any more.

If I were to leave you with 1 more tip, it would be this:  A custom made suit should be fully canvassed.

Otod Nate……Out!

Always check the receipt

I’m addicted to honey roasted cashews. So I go to walmart, and I find Planters honey roasted cashews on sale.

Walmrt price, on the shelf says 4.38 for the price.  I checked the brand and can size.

But everytime I go up to pay for them they ring up at  4.88. WTF? I figured this out once by looking at my receipt.

So from then on, every time I bought them, I took a pic of the price on the shelf and showed it to them, and they adjusted it for me. This went on for 6 months before some manager got pissed at me, walked over to the shelf, and just ripped the price tag off.

Now they’re actually priced over 5 dollars. But it was a good 6 months.

Mel Gibsons new movie.

As a fellow Jew I am asking you to read and share.
Mel Gibson has a new movie coming out.  It is named The Edge Of Darkness.
If you recall Mel’s father denies that the Holocaust ever happened. Mel supports his fathers beliefs.

On Ash Wednesday February 25th, 2004, the movie “Passion Of The Christ” opened in thousands of theaters. Mel Gibson co-wrote, directed,and co-produced the movie. Gibson also financed the $25 million it took to make the movie through his own company, Icon Productions. Hollywood’s major studios all passed on offers to distribute the film. New market films agreed to distribute it for a fee.

The movie has probably created more controversy than any other movie in recent years. Some commentators have charged that the movie is Anti-Semitic because it blames the Jews for the death of Christ. The film portrays Jews who adhere to their Jewish faith as enemies of God and the locus of evil..

The above 2 paragraphs were taken from the web site of religious tolerance. org/chrgibson. htm. Yes, there is a web site .

In July of 2006 Mel Gibson was stopped and arrested for drunk driving near his house in Malibu by Deputy James Mee.

In his initial report, Deputy Mee described how Gibson bolted from custody and how he chased the actor back to his car where he handcuffed him.
The report detailed repeated threats against Mee made by Gibson, who said that he “owned Malibu” and “would get even” with the deputy.
The report also detailed Gibson’s “barrage of anti-Semitic remarks” in which he said, “The Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world” before asking the deputy, who is Jewish: “Are you a Jew?”
The article goes on to say that Gibson, because of his celebrity status received a $1300.00 fine and other minor consequences.
He never apologized to the deputy or to the Jewish people. Can we support an individual who hates us?

New York Move Over Law

On January 1, 2011, ( Yes, 1 year ago )  New York’s “move over” law went into effect and people have been issued a mover over traffic ticket ever since.  Did you even know about this law?

The move over law requires motorists on multi-lane highways to slow down and “move over” (when safe to do so) giving safe clearance to approaching stopped emergency vehicles with red flashing lights.  If you do not slow down and change lanes when approaching such vehicle, you can be issued a moving violation which carries 3 points and up to a $150 fine.  On single lane roads, motorists must slow down and use caution.
