Came across this with a friend here at the station. I remember this commercial like it was yesterday! Seems like it was constantly on TV for a while back in the day.  And look at the ridiculous price near the end!!!

Do you remember this one too or are we just weird??

Better yet, who actually owned this CD?

Popeye’s favorite won’t necessarily make your muscles bulge like the pipe-smoking Pipsqueak (although they do make them more efficient), but spinach is rich in the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin that are great for keeping the whites of your eyes clear — a particular benefit if you happen to be a frequent flier on the Vegas red eye. Spinach is great in salads and curries, among other things. The iron-rich green is a perfect accompaniment to steak. Fry or broil a steak to your liking and cook some spinach in a pan with no water, squeezing off any excess after a couple of minutes. Remove from the heat and mix in some heavy cream and crumbled blue cheese. Season and serve, sitting your steaks on top of the spinach so the juices drizzle through.

These ever-ready sources of energy often make the quickest and easiest late-night dinners –– eggs over-easy on buttered toast or stuffed into a bagel are the go-to choices for a satisfying snack. Eggs are high in iron, which can help prevent hair loss (wish someone had told me that when I was younger) and are also high in sulfur (the “bad egg” smell we associate with stink bombs in school), which helps keep your hair soft and smooth.

A Fiorentina pizza combines the powers of both the spinach and the eggs. If you don’t order takeout, grab a pre-made pizza base and spread on some tomato sauce (not ketchup, you at the back). Again, pre-made is fine, but try and find one without additives. Slap on loads of baby spinach and make a little nest in the middle. Crack in an egg, grate over loads of Parmesan and season with plenty of black pepper; bake on high for 10 minutes till the pizza is golden and the egg yolk is still runny.

A banana is a bit of a freaky eat in that it keeps your skin nice and elastic. Try this little experiment: Grab a few people of differing ages and gently pinch the skin on the back of their wrists. Pull it up and release. The quicker it goes back, the more elastic it is. Things like smoking cigarettes do loads of damage to the elasticity in your birthday suit, and the potassium in bananas can help with this, as bananas are foods that can improve your looks.

You can’t get better than a classic banana split done posh. Halve your banana, scoop in some vanilla bean and good-quality chocolate ice cream, pour over 70 percent chocolate sauce, add salted butterscotch sauce, and scatter over chopped hazelnuts and sour cherries. This is the stuff that dreams are made of. If you’re on a health kick, go for a healthy option. Halve the banana, spoon over some thick natural yogurt, drizzle over honey, and add the nuts and cherries along with some granola for extra crunch.

Red cabbage
The more common white’s bright-purple cousin is packed with sulfur and iodine; these both help with the cleansing of your insides. Keeping your insides running smoothly and healthily is incredibly important for ridding your body of toxins, which can effect things like your skin. If you suffer from acne, maintaining a healthy inside is as important, if not more so, than any product you can use on your skin. Fight the battle both ways. Red cabbage is great pickled and is dead easy to consume. Take half a red cabbage and finely shred it into strips.

In a pan, boil together four parts water, two parts white-wine vinegar and one part sugar with a few allspice berries and a bay leaf. Allow to cool and pour over the shredded cabbage. Add a sliced chili or two if you like. Seal and store in the refrigerator. This is mind-numbingly good on a pulled pork sandwich, a burger or a dog.

Our purple pals (or yellow, rainbow or even pink) are a strong ally in the fight to keeping up our appearances. Beetroot contains betaine, which is a bioactive agent that helps with the breakdown of fats. Their juice also contains a form of chlorine that aids digestion by doing the same thing. Now, beet juice might not be the most appealing thing, but you should still be able to get a fair whack of beet goodness from eating them in their natural state.

Grapeseed oil
This newly fashionable oil is bright golden, perfect for drizzling over salads or on Italian bread. It's used in cosmetics now as a skin softener but it is also rich in vitamin E, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles. That might sound like an advert for an expensive skin cream, but you can pick up a bottle of this stuff for around $10 in health food stores. Use it as you would olive oil. It has a decent smoke point, which means it great for frying, or stick it in salad dressings and marinades. Griddle some bread on a barbecue or under a broiler; pour over some grapeseed oil, a drizzle of good balsamic and sea salt flakes; it's the perfect start to a meal

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are Hollywood's highest-grossing romantic film couple, according to Forbes magazine.

The stars have brought in $1.17 billion at the U.S. box office with their last three Twilight movies.

Forbes compiled the list by looking at the top-grossing romantic films in the United States in the past three years as classified by Box Office Mojo.

Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams came in a very distant second, with their movie The Vow earning $125 million domestically.

Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler were third with Just Go With It, which earned $103 million at the U.S. box office.

While it’s true you can buy anything imaginable on the black market, there are some weird things that are actually freely traded on the open market.

Here’s a rundown of some bizarre things you probably didn’t know you could buy or sell:

BUY: Someone to stand in line for you. If you live in Washington, D.C., and are tired of waiting long hours in line, you can pay someone $36 per hour to wait there for you.

SELL: Human plasma. If you’re looking to make some quick cash you can always donate your plasma for a cool $35 per donation.

BUY: Your doctor's cellphone number. A growing number of “concierge” doctors are now offering cellphone access and same-day appointments for patients willing to pay annual fees ranging from $1,500 to $25,000.

SELL: Your body. Pharmaceutical companies offer $7,500 for human guinea pigs willing to take part in drug safety studies. (EliteDaily.com)

New York's Sanitation Department descended upon Times Square yesterday (1/1/13) where they removed 40 tons of party hats, noisemakers, confetti and paper streamers. 100+ workers, 16 mechanical sweepers, 13 trucks and 14 leaf blowers cleared the New Year's Eve celebration garbage.

Some New Year's Eve revelers are upset with the NYPD because officers refused to let them leave their Times Square pens to go to the bathroom. Many people relieved themselves in bottles.
