GM Recalls 22,000 Corvettes...

...due to leaky roofs.

In a related note, the state of New Jersey is creaking to a halt. However, owners of Firebirds with T-tops are breathing a huge sigh of relief as they head to the gym to wail on their pecs.

One of many reasons why GM sucks. They can't weatherseal the roof on their flagship vehicle.

Today on Z-Man and the Teej: Z-Man drives solo with gripes about the domestic automobile industry featuring a seance with special guest Zora Arkus-Duntov.

texas tech just shitcanned mike leach, one day before they were obligated to cut him a check for $800k. cold-blooded shit, that.

Too bad ND would never have the balls to do it, but I sure wish he had stuffed a pledge in a closet weeks earlier so he could coach the Irish. Pirate mythology meets Catolicism, next on Z-Man and the Teej, live from the penny slots at Mandalay Bay.

On the other hand, that $800 K equals almost half of what it would take to chair an important faculty position.

zoltan said...

At what school does an important faculty member make $1.6MM?

TR said...

If you "chair" a faculty position, you donate an amount that can self-fund a faculty position. If you assume a Texas Tech professor makes $100 K, that means a $2 MM donation invested in munis yielding 5% after-tax will pay for that salary in perpetuity.

It's an oversimplification, but that's how it works. So after you retire from the legal profession, you can take a small chunk of your nest egg to fund the "Z-Man Memorial Professor of Law" at Fairleigh Dickinson University.

i'll chip in to fund the 'the teej memorial professor of hydroponic agriculture' at the university of colorado.

at&t petitioned the us govt in court today to allow it to eliminate landline service. that would be huge.

How will we call smutty chat numbers if they yank all the land lines?

The Z-Man Chair will be endowed at Morehead, alma matter of Phil Simms.

Not sure if anybody has noticed how terrible the NBA's Eastern Conference is again this year, but there are 5 teams above .500. The Knicks are in 10th place, one game out of the #7 seed. If they were in the Western Conference, they would be in 14th place.

In other news of suckitude, the Nets have a winning percentage of .065.
