2007 Darwin Awards:Some of them are old, and no doubt apocryphal, but they’re funny anyway:
1.When his 38-caliber revolver failed to fire at his intended victim during ahold-up in Long Beach , California , would-be robber James Elliot didsomething that can only inspire wonder. He peered down the barrel and triedthe trigger again. This time it worked.
2.The chef at a hotel in Switzerland lost a finger in a meat-cutting machineand, after a little shopping around, submitted a claim to his insurancecompany. The company expecting negligence sent out one of its men to have alook for himself. He tried the machine and he also lost a finger. The chef’sclaim was approved.
3.A man who shoveled snow for an hour to clear a space for his car during ablizzard in Chicago returned with his vehicle to find a woman had taken thespace. Understandably, he shot her.

Not wanting to admit his incompetence, the driverwent to a nearby bus stop and offered everyone waiting there a free ride. Hethen delivered the passengers to the mental hospital, telling the staff thatthe patients were very excitable and prone to bizarre fantasies. Thedeception wasn’t discovered for 3 days.

The man took the cash from the clerk and fled, leaving the $20bill on the counter The total amount of cash he got from the drawer… $15.[If someone points a gun at you and gives you money, is a crime committed?]
7.Seems an Arkansas guy wanted some beer pretty badly. He decided that he’djust throw a cinder block through a liquor store window, grab some booze,and run.

To which he replied, “Yes, officer, that’s her. That’s the ladyI stole the purse from.”
9.The Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man walked into a BurgerKing in Ypsilanti , Michigan , at 5 A.M., flashed a gun, and demanded cash.The clerk turned him down because he said he couldn’t open the cash registerwithout a food order.

FORWARD OPERATING BASE KALSU — It’s a cold winter day at Al Ashbal primary school in the Khadra District of Baghdad. The broken windows and lack of electricity mean coats have to be worn inside the classrooms. Despite the cold, warm smiles appear as students see U.S. Soldiers walk in the school.
“Before today, the children had to share their supplies among their class,” said Muna Ibrahim Hussein, the school’s headmistress. “I’ve been having trouble getting all the supplies I need (for the students).”
Soldiers from Company C, 1st Battalion, 64th Armor Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division visited the Ashbal primary school, Jan. 8, to distribute much-needed school supplies.
The Soldiers brought bags filled with notebooks, paper, pencils, pencil sharpeners, crayons, rulers and toys for the younger children. Soldiers also brought several dozen soccer balls, a favorite of Iraqi children.
While bringing supplies was the highlight of their mission, Soldiers had more than just pencils and pens in mind.
“This school hasn’t received the attention it needs …” said 1st Lt. Ehren Linderman, from Myrtle Point, Ore., tank platoon leader. “We brought the battalion civil affairs team to help us assess the school for any repair projects we can start.”
The civil affairs team, tasked with repairing infrastructure, is looking for a way to rebuild the school.
This cannot be. As When the Left’s propagandists, really dig into this article, they will tell you (and most will believe it) that this American soldier, then turned around and shot this young person, raped all of the females and burned all the evidence.
This American soldier has told Military investigators, that he came upon the scene shortly after this happened and pointed to terrorists, (OH. MY. God.)
BUT we all know it was he and his “cutting off ears, raping, shooting” buddies, that did this heinious act, right U.S. Senator John F. Kerry?
Drinking is good for you! As if we didn’t know that.
I spent three years in Munich back in the 70s, going to various festivals, gasthauses, beerfests, and parties, and the constant refrain was “Beer is liquid bread”. I learned what a poor brew American beer was in those days (no longer, thanks to microbreweries and American beer companies waking up), and I never went back. These days, alas, beer is forbidden to me, but I am allowed a glass of wine a day (when I choose to indulge) now.
Also remember: moderation in all things.
Ms Aim was on a working holiday in New Zealand
A woman from Orkney has died after being attacked while on a working holiday in New Zealand.
Police in the North Island town of Taupo said they were treating the death of Karen Aim as murder. (Editors note: No Shit, eh?)
The 26-year-old, who had been in New Zealand since October, was found in the early hours of Thursday with serious head injuries and died in hospital.
Helen Clark! Obviously some of your people did NOT get your message of peace, love, nuke free, let us all just get along, the rest of the world is a dreadful place..That Means YOU…United States of America!
Well, here’s another nugget of archaeological evidence that corresponds with a Biblical narrative:
In a cool article in the Jerusalem Post we learn that the First Temple era family of Temech has left behind a seal that has been discovered. This family is mentioned in the Biblical Book of Nehemiah as servants of the Temple, and the seal dates from around 500 BC.
Interestingly, the figure depicts two bearded priests, arms raised in worship, standing on either side of a horned incense altar, with a crescent moon – the symbol of the Babylonian god Sin – above. The family name is written below the scene.
I’ll let other’s decide for themselves the significance of Sin and the crescent moon, but I know where I’m going with it, and it has to do with how the Israelites continually alloyed their traditions with those of their captors. Some of this was doubtless a necessity for survival, but not all.
Cool find, though.
G’day to all the new visitors coming over and joining in the party! Have no fear about posting, we’re pretty cool here. Just keep rudeness to a low, mmmmmmmmkay?
And for those who’ve been hanging around here for a while, you’ll notice on the right sidebar –> (NOTE TO SELF: this way Ash!) that we’ve added in a SiteMeter.
Y’all come from some pretty cool places!
In one of those inane decisions that governments and bureaucracies produce every day in a constantly backfiring attempt to justify their existence, the Annapolis “public affairs office” announces that the annual rite of passage known as The Herndon Climb is being reviewed to make sure it’s safe.
OK, let me get this straight: You have a military academy that trains sailors and marines to go into combat to defend the nation, its citizens, and its interests, and you are worried that one of them may get hurt climbing a 21-foot obelisk coated with lard in a friendly competition?!
Shit, fuck, hell. What a load of horse manure.
There’s an organisation down here in Australia, called GetUp!
And they claim to be politically neutral.
Have a look at the survey they’re running, and let me know what you think.
Apropos to the anniversary of Monicagate, I give you Billary.
The above photoshop job either creeps you out, or it’s your political wet dream. If the latter, you have serious problems, among the least of which is you don’t understand what the United States was meant to be.
In order to understand what the US was meant to be, we have to go back to President Calvin Coolidge in 1924.
