Do as I say, not as I do

Is there anyone out there in reality land that is not surprised to find out that "Earth in the Lurch" author AlGore isn't nearly as green as he'd like to MAKE the rest of us be?

And to think this jackass was *that* close to being the President of the United States.

4x4 stump shoot

tell me this video does not look like fun!! Take several 4x4's, a bunch of guys with guns, and I'd say several hundred rounds of ammo, and see what happens next...

Amorous woman falls through floor of house

Funny thing - the article says nothing about a partner.

When this lady goes down, she really goes down, huh?

That's about it. I'm done.

Four penguins die after truck carrying Indy Zoo birds crashes

Awww. The cute penguins got killed near Marshall.
Four penguins traveling from the Indianapolis Zoo to a zoo in Texas died Tuesday in a truck accident. Two zoo employees suffered minor injuries when the truck overturned on a highway near Marshall in east Texas.
Oh, yeah - there were people injured, too. They don't say where it happened, but I'm guessing it was I-20, where there are more morons per mile than should be allowed. Slow down, people - save the penguins.

Save the jokes on how they blew a seal, k? BTW, with a little marinade, I hear they taste like chicken.

Reuters withdraws all photos by Lebanese freelance

After finding that two photographs that were posted by a Lebanese photographer that put the terrorists in a positive light and the Israelis in a negative light, Reuters pulls every photograph in its database by this so called "photo journalist".

Good for them - I think that's a step in the right direction. It's also called closing the barn door after the horse got out.

The one burning question that I have after learning of this is simple:

Has the news media been manipulating doctored photographs forever, all the while claiming they are "objective"? Is this a case that they are only now getting caught?

I mean, think of the impact that famous photographs have had on the national conscience. Think of the photographs that turned the American people against the war in Vietnam. How many of them were doctored to give a particular spin?

More and more the media needs to be put back in its place because what I know now is that they are failing us terribly.

KaleCoAuto, Hard to find automotive items!

This site is great. I was looking for a flux capacitor for my Honda, and not only found that, but a lot of other really good stuff, like muffler bearings, a tampon dispenser (for automatics), and a passenger noise reducer.

Texas School District Bans Cleavage

"It's gotten bad enough that, unfortunately, our young males are looking at more than their English book, their speech book, their science book," says school board president Sherri Wade. "And it's kind of nice to have something left to the imagination."
So, by this logic, we could get males to pay more attention to their books if they had boobies in them? Wait a minute - I think I see what's going on here...
While most parents support the new rule, some worry that enforcing it could be a challenge. "I think that's going to be a little tricky, because it puts a little bit of a policeman approach to the educators, and they really need to focus more on teaching," said Tom Pederson, AISD parent.
So we're encouraging the faculty to look at cleavage, but discouraging students from it? Sounds like trouble to me, based on the number of teachers being brought up on sex charges these days. Maybe it's not the kids that are the problem?

Loaded Gun Found on Back of Bank Toilet

You know what I would've done had I found a security guard's gun on a toilet seat? That's right - headed straight for the gun show, and added to my open gun fund.

If anyone would like to contribute to that fund, I'll be setting up a PayPal account soon.

Gun-Toting Granny Still Firing at Age 82

Go, Granny, go! Take it from a guy who has been beaten by a girl (The Girl) more times than he cares to count - smack-talk stings a little.
Roherty admits she sometimes can't resist asking competitors, "You let an old lady beat you?"
Double ouch.
