Bomb disposal experts blow up box of used tampons
OK, has the paranoia officially moved in to stay??
Monsanto aims to create non-soggy cornflakes
Oh! The bane of my very existence — soggy cornflakes — is about to be abolished from the face of the earth at last! Finally, I can sleep at night knowing that some morning, in the not-too-distant future, I can get out of bed, pour myself a bowl of cereal, and bask in the knowledge that it won’t ever become soggy — all because of this well-funded, excruciatingly tedious (yet wholly worthwhile) breakthrough in cornflake technology. We should all be thankful that scientists are working hard to alleviate the pain and suffering of their fellow human beings, and using their knowledge to benefit all of mankind in such a profound manner!
Hockey Dad Sentenced to 6 to 10 Years
Yes! Justice prevails in yet another example of sports parents letting their kids’ games drive them over the edge. We’ve all seen parents get excited at their kids’ games, but lately there have been more instances of outright violence. This is what the sports mentality does to people — it gives them an outlet, an excuse for violence. You may think this is ridiculous…but check out the hazing story below.
Victim of hazing speaks out
Mindless, hateful, sports-violence-driven teenagers doing what they’ve been taught by their coaches and school boards: beating the shit out of someone else. They just chose to do it to someone on the same team, that’s all. The Cult of Sports trains people to go out there and hurt someone, right? “Let’s kill ’em out there!” And it’s just SO typical for the school officials to have covered it all up in the name of preserving their school’s “team glory”. These subhumans need to be exposed at every opportunity, and I’m very proud of this kid coming forth and exposing the torture, abuse, and psychological torment that he has endured at the hands of his teammates, classmates, and school officials. Someone needed to expose it, and bring public scorn and shame on those responsible. No game victory is worth hurting anyone over, whether it’s the other team or someone on your own. School sports programs are given far too much power, and far too much influence. Parents need to rip themselves away from their T.V. sets and realize what this stuff can do to their kids when it gets out of control… It’s even more sickening when jock-centric tripe like “Varsity Blues” is shoved in our faces. Someone in that movie actually says, “Now’s our chance to get out there and play like gods!” Oh get over yourself, Mr. Jock.
Will Fast Food Be The Death Of Us?
Why is this a question? Fast food has already been proven to be a health hazard…this has been common knowledge for years and years. But this is a great article on the subject, especially given the fact that it covers material in the book “Fast Food Nation”, one of the most revealing books I’ve ever read.
Anthrax Missing From Army Lab
Wellll, isn’t this interesting! Of course, the Army is quick to point out that this couldn’t possibly be the same strain that has been mailed to our media and government, oh no. “WE wouldn’t have any connection to something like that, even though we’ve been engineering many strains of this stuff for years and are missing some of it. Our lax security couldn’t have anything to do with it, either…or that suspicious late-night research that someone was doing but we ignored. No, it’s gotta be them pesky terrorists again…let’s bomb ’em again!!”
Ex-newsman’s case full of holes
Tom Shales desperately tries his hand at character assassination in this piece about Bernard Goldberg’s book “Bias”. Goldberg is a liberal who chose to write about the media’s liberal slant, and this has gotten him in deep caca with his media colleagues, as you can imagine. Shales prefers to nitpick things like Goldberg’s appearance rather than attack the arguments made in the book…and I’m not surprised.
CNN DECLARES PAULA ZAHN ‘SEXY’ IN NEW PROMO
Yes, and this will only elevate the respectability of CNN as a trusted, unbiased news source which doesn’t stoop to entertainment-network levels to get an audience. MmmHmmm. Now they’re claiming the ad was a joke, or a mistake. MmmHmmm.
25-story crucifix proposed
Ugh, how vulgar. It’s that “bigger is better” thing again. People who support this sort of thing are the smug types who love to shove their faith in the faces of others. “Look, I’m Christian! See? Here’s my crucifix! Look! I follow Jesus! See? Look!” It’s a form of insecurity, I think. Whatever happened to humility? It’s the same mindset behind that guy who wants to build a giant church which is the size of most megamalls (that story is in the Archives somewhere). Bigger is better, even though Jesus himself would never ask for such a thing. But people don’t seem to really care what Jesus said or what he would do these days.
‘Granny’ Busted For Pot Sales
More moronic action to save us from ourselves. “These people can’t be allowed to smoke this evil weed! They need to be taking chemicals and drinking beer like normal people!” To them, anything growing out of the ground is eeeeevil…but if it’s manufactured in a lab or ice-filtered, it’s goooood. See how much your government cares about your welfare? They care so much, they’re throwing an old lady in jail for smoking (and/or selling) a plant that millions of responsible people (in every layer of the social strata) smoke every day without any problems or negative effects. Thank you for saving us from the evils of herbs, Uncle Sam!
Endangered turtles ‘saved by Hindu god link’
This is a bizarre example of a group preying on religious beliefs in order to keep their agenda afloat. Yes, in the Hindu religion, one of Vishnu’s many incarnations on earth was as a turtle. So these people are telling Hindus that they must save this turtle because it’s really Vishnu. The strange part is, Vishnu’s last incarnations were Krishna and Buddha…they’re still waiting for the next (and final) incarnation, named Kalki, when this world is ready to end. So why are they falling for the turtle thing? They oughta be telling these guys, “No, the turtle came and went, man! We’re waiting for Kalki on his horse!”
The Two Faces Of Michael Jackson
OK, let’s get one thing straight. Michael Jackson is NO LONGER HUMAN. He is a construct, a mannequin with a white glove and facial paint. His face has been ripped apart and reassembled more times than a Lego set. So I don’t doubt for one moment that his nose might have been somewhat “dislodged” that night…in fact, I have heard several reports that several celebrities at that awards show were digitally altered to look better on T.V. And by looking at that first photo, can you honestly say that it’s just a “trick of the light”? Ick. The man belongs in a wax museum.
Bush pledges to AIDS fund; critics react
You know, I hate to say it, but some people whine far too much. They should be glad that they’re getting ANY money for AIDS research out of a Republican president. Now they’re not screaming for millions, they’re screaming for billions. Well, let’s see…how many billions have been poured into this research already in the past 20 years? Are we any closer to a cure, or are we just sustaining the pharmaceutical companies and the doctors/researchers who have built their careers around this disease? AIDS money is grossly abused all across the board—not as much of it goes into research that we all would like, and research into alternative treatments is generally scoffed at by the “experts”. Popping pills hasn’t cured one person of AIDS, and yet this is all they seem to offer. We need tighter control of this research money, and full accountability as to where it goes and for what. Needless to say, this is not a popular point of view.
– DEEP POOH-POOH
– POOH SCANDAL IS ‘$HRED’ HOT
Oohhh, I love it when Disney is either in trouble or experiencing financial troubles! This is one empire that needs to be taken down a notch or two. I know how ruthless their lawyers are, but I don’t know if even they can get Disney out of this scrape.
– Gay doll faces legal action
– UPS-like gay doll creates uproar
This is quite funny…I think the gay dolls are kinda silly, but it’s fun to watch a big corporation like UPS get all fussy & fidgety over having anything gay associated with it. They mask it as “copyright infringement”, but you know what it really is.
Writing in sky sends wrong message
This is just like the 250-foot crucifix thing: bigger is better, put it in everyone’s face, etc. He said we all need to get back to God and ask for his blessings, blah blah blah…as long as it’s HIS God, of course. I’m willing to bet that if you worship a different one, then forget it. No soup for you!
This is one of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard of. And that’s saying a lot. 🙂
Read this. Take it to heart. Follow its advice. I cut T.V. out of my life years ago, and I find myself thinking more clearly, finding other sources for news, and spending my time doing more creative things. T.V. is a wasteland of insulting tripe dressed up as entertainment, and more people ought to just stop tuning in!
