Gettin' paid

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon has paid more than $100 million in bonuses to veteran Green Berets and Navy SEALs, reversing the flow of top commandos to the corporate world where security companies such as Blackwater USA are offering big salaries.
Overall, more than 1,200 of the military's most specialized personnel near or already eligible for retirement have opted for payments of up to $150,000 in return for staying in uniform several more years.
Blackwater and similar companies are paying 150k a year for ex-military servicemen to "provide security" overseas.

Black and white...because everyone knows black and white is more artistic...less sleazy

WTF? Over

A 6-year-old Park Slope girl is facing a $300 fine from the city for doing what city kids have been doing for decades: drawing a pretty picture with common sidewalk chalk.
Obviously not all of Natalie Shea’s 10th Street neighbors thought her blue chalk splotch was her best work — a neighbor called 311 to report the “graffiti,” and the Department of Sanitation quickly sent a standard letter to Natalie’s mom, Jen Pepperman.
She's SIX, for cripes sake. And if she stays that cute, she's gonna own New York City.

10 Questions for Jenna

If the war in Iraq is so noble, why aren't you and your sister serving our country there? —Donald Pence, San Francisco
I understand that point, but there are many ways to serve our country, and I think my skills are better suited for teaching and representing the U.S. in Latin America through UNICEF. I respect the men and women of our country who are over there fighting. It is an unbelievably selfless thing to do. But if people really thought about it, they would know it's not even a practical question.
well thought our answers.

The Nobel Peace Prize 2007

First, how do you win half a Nobel Peace Prize and split it with a Intergovernmental Panel? In about 20 years when we are fearmongering about GLOBAL COOLING, the Nobel committee is going to slap themselves in the forehead. headline: Woman who saved 2500 Jews during the Holocaust given Nobel Peace Prize --- just kidding, it's the guy who emits over a ton of CO2 a year telling us to stop global warming

Funniest one EVAR

A fighter jet made of BICEPS!

Study: Rise in humidity caused by humans

Higher humidity can be dangerous to people because it makes the body less efficient at cooling itself, said University of Miami health and climate researcher Laurence Kalkstein.
What? Your body's efficiency doesn't ever change. It's a constant. Your body's ability to cool itself at higher temperatures decreases. But the efficiency is the same.
What a bunch of crap.
First run your study for like, ONE HUNDRED YEARS, don't take one of the coldest years in recent history and then measure from there to today which just happens to be one the warmest years in recent history.
That's just stupid.
How about I study how taking a long hot shower with the one you love, first uses lots of water and adds water to the atmosphere.

Hagerstown cheerleading coach on trial for illegal gaming

HAGERSTOWN - A cheerleading coach with a criminal past went on trial Tuesday for allegedly holding an illegal gambling event to repay a parent who had helped bail her out of jail for an earlier transgression.
Anna Lois Miles, 34, of Hagerstown, has pleaded innocent to the five charges, which carry maximum penalties totaling five years in prison and $4,000 in fines. A conviction also could subject her to additional prison time for violating probation.
That's quick thinking. What's that on her neck?

Charlize Theron: Sexiest woman alive

Disk technology takes Nobel Prize

French scientist Albert Fert and Peter Grunberg of Germany have won the 2007 Nobel Prize for physics.
Thank you for making it all possible.


Yesterday, two grad students (husband and wife)that I know were driving on campus and being followed closely by a white car. The white car passes them and then cuts them off and pins them against the curb. The driver gets out and starts screaming obscenities at the woman (who was driving), flipping both middle fingers and repeatedly saying "do you know who I am!".
It was Jo Pa! Is he off his meds or something?

Springfield bank customer in handcuffs after prank

A routine trip to the bank to make a withdrawal became anything but for a New Jersey man in Springfield on Monday morning.
The man, who regularly banks with Chase, stopped by the branch at 200 S. Dirksen Parkway about 11:15 a.m., picked up a blank withdrawal slip from a kiosk, filled it out and went to the counter, where he handed the slip to the teller.
Not funny Dooley.

1 Billion Dollars, bought you NOTHING

Indians eliminate Yankees with 6-4 win
In the last 5 years the Yankees have spent 1 Billion Dollars to field a team. This year spending 189.6 million to field a team.
They were eliminated last night by the Cleveland Indians, who have spent only 61 million this year and 320 million in the last 5 years.
Good work Yankees. Thank you for single-handedly destroying baseball with outrageous salaries.

Cowboys steal last-second win over Bills

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - NFL quarterbacks who turn over the ball six times usually disappear quickly. Tony Romo's isn't going anywhere.
The unflappable Romo overcame five interceptions and a lost fumble to lead two last-minute drives, and rookie Nick Folk kicked a 53-yard field goal as time expired, giving the Dallas Cowboys an improbable 25-24 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Monday night.
That sucks. They didn't deserve to win, well except for the Dallas kicker Nick Folk, he deserved to win.
And yes, I won. I knocked off the last unbeaten team in my league.

Dead Reverend's Rubber Fetish

OCTOBER 8--An Alabama minister who died in June of "accidental mechanical asphyxia" was found hog-tied and wearing two complete wet suits, including a face mask, diving gloves and slippers, rubberized underwear, and a head mask, according to an autopsy report. Investigators determined that Rev. Gary Aldridge's death was not caused by foul play and that the 51-year-old pastor of Montgomery's Thorington Road Baptist Church was alone in his home at the time he died (while apparently in the midst of some autoerotic undertaking).
Everyone just wants to get their freak on.
Not how you want to be remembered. Personal Effects: One yellow metal ring intact on left ring finger, one dildo.

Football Predictions

Somebody stop the madness. Have you seen the Top 25 this week?
This is why I normally don't like doing predictions. But some weeks I feel plucky.

Last week's predictions.

OU over Texas
I got this one right. But the game ended without the huge margin most analysts were predicting. No defensive touchdowns.

Florida over LSU
Boy I thought they might just do it. But alas Florida fell short. LSU really rallied to win that one. As much as I hate LSU they play pretty good football.

Ohio State over Purdue

A lot of people piked this one for Purdue. But Ohio State really played hard.

Georgia over Tennessee

Well I guess Tennessee is not the welcoming mat I thought they were.

Missouri over Nebraska

Missouri put the smackdown on the once mighty Big Red.

Wisconsin over Illinois

Wow did Illinois play a great game or what. Even though I picked Wisconsin to win we were routing for the Fighting Illini at my house.

Some surprises this weekend....
Stanford over USC?
Who was saying USC might be the greatest football team EVAR? I guess not. Cal will probably loose to USC making the one loss mess all that more confusing.

I really, really believe the pollsters want to see Oklahoma play in the BCS Championship. Oklahoma is the highest ranked one loss team. And they didn't drop the Trojans that far down in the polls after loosing to Stanford.
Secretly I think they hope for a USC and Oklahoma rematch. But that pesky South Florida team and Ohio State are screwing it up.
Have no fear...the BCS Rankings start next week. That will tell us who the best in the land is...

Narrow victory in wife carrying contest

NEWRY - By a margin of only a third of a second, a Boston couple claimed victory at the 8th annual North American Wife Carrying Championships held Saturday at Sunday River Ski Resort.
"We could never expect something this good," said Keith Cardoza after successfully bringing Julia Stoner, his girlfriend of six months, through the 253.3 meter course.
Man this looks like a lot of fun.

Something in the Way She Moves?

In a particularly stimulating study, researchers have found that lap dancers--women who work in strip joints and, for cash, gyrate in the laps of seated men--earn more when they are in the fertile phase of their menstrual cycle. The finding suggests that women subtly signal when they are most fertile, although just how they do it is not clear.
Well isn't that interesting. See scientist that are working on cures for cancer and malaria are missing out on the "fun" research. Now I wonder if you tell the women that menstruating women make more money, that their cycles get affected. It's already a fact that women will adjust their cycles when living with other women. Does anyone know a good grant writer?

Embrace digital or die, EMI told

The new owner of EMI, Britain's largest music group, has warned that the industry will not survive if it continues to rely on CD sales alone.
Hands' letter was in response to the decision by Radiohead, one of the biggest bands nurtured by EMI but now out of contract with the label, to release their latest album via the internet and at a price decided by fans.
Music isn't free, so I say to the "Radiohead generation" you will have to pay something. Why all of a sudden do I hear "EMI" in my head?

One dead in heat-shortened marathon

With temperatures soaring to 88 degrees, city and race officials closed the course for runners not past the halfway point at about 11:30 a.m.--three and a half hours after the start.
Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said 302 runners were hospitalized with what he described as heat-related conditions.
Marathon officials report 24,931 runners completed the full distance with about 4,000 finishing in under 3.5 hours. It was the hottest day in the 30-year history of Chicago's marathon.
Soared to 88 degrees? Hell that a pleasant summer day in Oklahoma. So I guess reenacting the first marathon is not for most of these guys. So I learned today that 88 degrees in Chicago is a hot day.

Rubik's Cube solved in 10.88 seconds

BUDAPEST, Hungary - A 16-year-old took the top prize at the Rubik's Cube world championship Sunday, solving the puzzle five times in an average of 12.46 seconds.
But the fastest single attempt was a cool 10.88 seconds, just off the world record of 9.86 seconds.
There's a pattern to it....a very complex pattern but a pattern none-the-less.

Off-duty Wis. deputy sheriff kills 6

CRANDON, Wis. - The residents of a remote northern Wisconsin community struggled to understand Monday how a sheriff's deputy who killed six young people and critically wounded another could have become a law enforcement officer.
The gunman's motive was unclear, but the mother of a 14-year-old victim said the suspect may have been a jealous boyfriend.
I'm going to say it again, there is a specific gene that causes people to twist off like this. I just know it.
