Pulling muscles from Michelle...

One of my coworkers in the cube next to me is holding forth in yet another of her damn coffee-klatsches. These happen at least once an hour. Some weaselly little twerp from a whole different department comes by for free chocolate (or gummi bears or whatever the crap-du-jour is) and they sit there scarfing down munchies, screaming like wounded beagles and cackling hysterically. I've developed a tic.

26 March 2001, Florida | Many women try to reduce the size of their posteriors, but a few scrawnier specimens attempt the opposite. After exhausting a range less invasive home remedies such as wearing padded layers of underwear, a 53-year-old Fort Lauderdale woman persuaded an unlicensed underground "plastic surgeon" to boost her butt size by pumping it full of silicone in the comfort of her own living room. Hospital officials contacted police to report the suspicious death of the needle-marked woman, who had been delivered to the emergency room by rescue workers after suffering breathing difficulties in her apartment.

October 2001, Norway | A drunken robber, masked in his own underpants, presented a bank teller with a demand note and absconded with the money. But his gains were short-lived: his wife's name was written on the reverse side of the paper.

14 March 2001, Australia | Yet another inebriated man let alcohol impair his judgement. A 40-year-old Brisbane motorist filling a can at a gas station lit a cigarette... and landed fifteen feet away. He was treated for burns, bruises and (surprise) ant bites. A police spokesman said, "We took a vote and this is one of the stupidest things we've ever heard of." (Obviously they've never heard the soliloquies of the Smirking Sockmonkey...)

July 2001 | An Israeli woman nearly died when she sprayed pesticide in her mouth to kill a cockroach that had flown in. (WTF??!!?) The poison burned her mouth and left her hospitalized. "I just did not think," the 20-year-old admitted.

Like Wiping off a Dingleberry - Cleaning Up in Bush's Wake

Japan and South Korea are trying to calm the waters after President Cowpie's continued harsh rhetoric toward North Korea on his trip to Asia last week. Analysts here say the Warmongering Wondermonkey's comments, in which he castigated the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Il and repeated his judgment that the regime is "evil," have further distanced prospects of renewed cooperation by Pyongyang.

The Smirking Simpleton "says he is willing to talk to the North, but he is not willing to make it a priority," said Ji Yeon Yuh, an assistant history professor at Northwestern University, writing in the Daily Yomiuri. When the Clueless Cornpone "labeled North Korea part of an axis of evil, he heightened the potential for military conflict. The losers in any such conflict would be the Korean people."

Howard Baker, the U.S. ambassador to Tokyo, acknowledged that he worried about the miscalculation.*

Newly Spotted Comet Will Soon Grace Night Skies!

A newly discovered comet, now approaching the Sun and Earth, could develop into a relatively bright naked-eye object in coming weeks, researchers say. The best views of the comet may be reserved for those under dark skies far from bright lights, but even city dwellers should be able to spot it.

The comet is called Ikeya-Zhang. The latest orbit calculation indicates it will pass closest to the Sun, a point called perihelion, on March 18 at a distance of 47.1 million miles (75.8 million km). After rounding the Sun, the comet will continue moving toward Earth, making its closest approach to our planet, called perigee, on April 28, when it will be 37.6 million miles (60.5 million km) away.

Ikeya-Zhang's expected path across the sky in the coming weeks will greatly favor Northern Hemisphere observers. During most of March on into early April, the comet will be visible near to the north-northwest horizon about an hour after sundown. Bright moonlight may hinder observations during the last week of March.

After the first week of April, with the Moon no longer a factor, the comet will also be visible in the morning sky, rising earlier and getting progressively higher above the northeast horizon each night.

NBC Apologizes for Jim McKay's Olympic Boners

NEW YORK (DPI) - NBC today apologized for airing the "Jim McKay's Olympic Boners" segment in which he recounted in detail his Olympic sexual fantasies. Said an NBC spokesperson: "We had no idea there was a problem until he started in with how many humps he would put into the 'Hamill camel,' and the unfortunate incident with 'Li'l Jim'." The segment began innocently with McKay reflecting on the "beauty of sport," but took an abrupt turn when he soliloquized on how "naughty" skater Katarina Witt was and offered to pollinate the entire Olympic village with his superintellectual seed. McKay then confessed his love for Greg Louganis, soiled himself, and fainted.

from The Houston Chronicle:

The Crawford Cowabuser, a former oilman whose campaigns were supported by Enron Corp., has sought to play down his relationship with Lay, but in an Oct 3 2000 meeting of Enron employees, Lay spoke frankly of his political and financial backing for the vapid vaquero-wannabe, and noted that he previously had supported Preznit Poopypant's father. "I strongly believe in his candidacy," Lay said in the videotape obtained by Waxman, a California Democrat. "I strongly supported him when he ran for governor of Texas both times. I strongly supported his father back before that." He noted that Enron's political action committee had made more donations to Republicans than Democrats because Republicans tended to be friendlier to the company's agenda favoring deregulating markets and reducing corporate taxes.

Short snip: Chris from Riverside, R.I.: Why was the national media more concerned with what Bill Clinton was doing with another consenting adult than they are with this entire Bush/Enron debacle?

Maybe it's just me, and I am the only one concerned... but I doubt that.

The truth is out there ... right?

"The culprit responsible for the Sept. 11 attack is now rumoured to be the same one who lurked behind the grassy knoll: the oil-dependent U.S. military-industrial complex.

"...resident George W. Bush and his right-hand man, Vice President Dick Cheney, have taken the unprecedented step of trying to restrict the investigations of the tragedies and how such an intelligence and security breakdown was allowed to occur...according to those who do not believe in The Lone Gunman, the truth is as plain as the nose on your face: Sept. 11's terrorist acts were planned and paid for by the CIA to enable the Bush Administration to "legitimately" bomb Afghanistan into submission on behalf of the oil industry."

Bush E-mail Account Targeted by Terrorist Spam

WASHINGTON, DC (DPI) - President Bush was attacked yesterday by various e-mail-producing hackers believed to be affiliated with terrorist groups. Among the offending e-mail messages were "Instant Axxxcess for $5.95 a month" and "Your diploma is ready." Although the normal White House e-mail goes through screening before reaching the president's eyes, the president's personal account, hotstuph524@aol.com, was the afflicted account. In an attempt to stop the spam, White House officials tried clicking the "remove from list" button, but the terrorists actually started sending more junk e-mail, such as "Britney is nude and masturbating just for you" and an offer for a free cell phone from AT&T Wireless.

Help save Skara Brae!

Erosion washes away Orkney's heritage - by Gillian Harris, Scotland Correspondent, from The UK Times

ARCHAEOLOGISTS fear that coastal erosion will destroy important prehistoric landmarks in Orkney and elsewhere in Scotland unless urgent action is taken. Waves crashing on to the beach below Skara Brae, a World Heritage Site in Orkney, provide a spectacular backdrop to one of the most important archaeological sites in Europe but the sea battering the foot of the 5,000-year-old settlement is now the cause of international concern. When Skara Brae was built on the west side of the Orkney mainland around 3,500 BC it was a sheltered inland settlement, close to a loch but more than a mile from the sea. Today, storm-tossed seas regularly soak the neolithic houses with their stone furniture linked by narrow passages.
The settlement, preserved under layers of sand until it was discovered in 1824, attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year. A seawall built in 1926 to protect Skara Brae is crumbling at both ends under the force of the waves. Sea water is eating into the sand dunes and eventually it will flow around the back of the settlement, effectively turning Skara Brae into an island, open to the elements on all sides and in danger of disintegration. With more than 500 archaeological landmarks on the islands at risk, Orkney Archaeology Trust is urging the Government to spend more money protecting them. At present the annual budget for archaeological rescue administered by Historic Scotland is £1.8 million for the whole country.

Silbury Hill's spiral may reveal its secrets
The latest scanning techniques may have solved some of the mysteries of one of Europe's largest prehistoric structures. Ground surveys of Silbury Hill in Wiltshire have revealed it was built up in a spiral and not layer by layer like a wedding cake. Britain's Stone Age people saw the spiral as a sacred symbol and archaeologists are now beginning to believe Silbury may have been a ceremonial site. The chalk hill would have been brilliant white when it was built around 4,500 years ago and it still stands 120ft high. - from Ananova

So that "Pearl Harbor" movie was just fiction!
from Hypocrites.com:
"Is Bush telling a deliberate and historically monumental lie - or is he simply the stupidest man on the entire planet? You decide, because the Washington Press Corps doesn't have the balls to ask B$#@ why he scrubbed World War II from world history in his address to the Japanese Parliament. "My trip to Asia begins here in Japan for an important reason. It begins here because for a century and a half now, America and Japan have formed one of the great and enduring alliances of modern times. From that alliance has come an era of peace in the Pacific." Hey Shrub - your own DAD was shot down over the Pacific in WWII during your "era of peace in the Pacific"! Do we need to demand an investigation of B%$#'s brain???

Pentagon Admits Scrubbing Thomas White's Enron Past

More from the Honor 'n' Integrity Administration. The late-night "comics" are blowing it big-time - they have great material like this to work with and they're making jokes about the Olympics:

According to Defense Week, "The Army today gave its reasons for editing nearly out of existence references to Enron in the Army secretary's official homepage biography. The redaction was done to save space on the page and to ensure that Thomas White's history included more words about the future, a spokesman said. Before the edit, White's bio included about 120 words near the top on his 11 years at Enron Energy Services. As of last week, all that verbiage had been trimmed to one small sentence-which was moved to the end of the page." That's the most ludicrous explanation we've ever heard - last we checked, there was NO limit on the length of a Web page. Now that the Pentagon is officially in the business of LYING, there's no reason to believe a single word they say.

Britain's most prestigious annual award for unconventional art (the Turner Prize, with more than $30,000 in prize money) went in December to Martin Creed, 33 (who once described his work as about the qualities of "nothing" and who was described in a news report as "looking utterly bewildered" upon being named the winner), for an installation consisting only of an empty room in which lights switch on and off automatically every five seconds.

The French artist Cho was profiled in a December BBC News report for his street-beautification project of sticking little flags into some of the many piles of dog droppings on Paris sidewalks (an estimated 5,800 tons per year) and then painting artistic borders around them.

Police, examining remnants, concluded that the pipe bomb that blew up a pickup truck was constructed out of a 12-inch dildo.

Bin Laden Video Tapes Doctored: Bush Administration Cover-up?

"There is now conclusive evidence that the official U.S. transcript of bin Laden's amateur videotape was doctored by the Bush Administration to remove evidence of Saudi Arabian involvement in the September 11 attack on America. Comparisons of the official text with texts from independent newspaper and TV versions prove this: The omissions from the official tape consistently remove or distort the statements that reveal Saudi Arabian involvement. An inescapable conclusion: The official transcript was deliberately doctored by high level officials in the Bush Administration. Oilmen with an "Enron Mentality" believe it is more important to conceal this direct Saudi Arabian connection to the September 11 strike than to protect ordinary Americans against future Saudi suicide bombers."

"The unspecified terrorist threat against Boston that scared many city residents and suburbanites away from downtown for a weekend last September was based on lies that an undocumented immigrant told investigators... The purported threats were immediately brought to the attention of (p)resident Bush, FBI director Robert S. Mueller, and Ashcroft. Federal investigators had not been able to verify Martinez-Flores's claims before Ashcroft warned Swift and Menino, US officials acknowledged yesterday. Martinez-Flores, 28, later admitted that he made it all up." Hey John, congratulations on your outstanding work - NOT!"

Bitter over Campaign Finance Defeat, House Republicans Resort to Mafia Tactics to Get MORE Tax Cuts for the Rich

NY Times columnist Paul Krugman writes, "The hard men of the House leadership refuse to allow a clean vote on unemployment benefits. Instead they continue to insist that it's their way or no way: they won't allow a vote on benefits extension except as part of a bill that mainly consists of tax cuts for corporations and families in upper tax brackets... And they rammed that bill through last Thursday. Let's leave aside, for a moment, the economic merits of those tax cuts. What's really striking about this tactic is its sheer bloody-mindedness: the House leadership is willing to impose pain on some of the most vulnerable people in the country, desperate families whose breadwinners have been unable to find jobs, in order to push a divisive, partisan agenda... tax-cut advocates have moved from promises to threats. Support tax cuts for the elite, the House leadership says, or we'll cut off your unemployment benefits. So what's next? Support tax cuts or we'll break your legs?"

Europe's largest archive of broken pots, scraps of clothing, household junk and human bones has thrown open its doors to the public. The archaeological collection, stored in 120,000 cardboard boxes stacked on more than six miles of shelves, includes some of the most important remains dug up in Britain over the past two centuries.
More than 18,000 human skeletons are stored at the centre, along with Roman pomegranate seeds, Saxon jewellery and Tudor tankards from more than 4,000 digs.
It is the first time such a large British collection has been brought together and made available to the public. More than 200,000 individually recorded finds collected since the 1830s are stored at the centre. They include Roman dog and cat footprints, medieval loaded dice and 17th-century graffiti.

Boxes are filled with thousands of Roman shoes but only one matching pair. The oldest artefact is a 20,000-year-old flint knife. The remains of the Globe and Rose theatres are housed in the archive, along with remains from the Temple of Mithras, one of Roman Britain's greatest treasures discovered in the City of London.

Anyone with access to the internet will be able to search for archaeological sites or particular finds.

The new London Archaeological Archive and Research Centre, run by the Museum of London, is based in a warehouse in north London.

'Mud pack: the war-profiteer-in-chief' - another great article by Chris Floyd:

"George W. Bush's teleprompter reading of his word-massagers' "Axis of Evil" speech last week certainly was a ring-tailed wonder. While those supine sentinels of truth, the American media, strained their tiny little brains to find apt comparisons for Bush's rhetorical greatness - some likened him to Churchill, others to Teddy Roosevelt; one even thought Bush surpassed Julius Caesar - the rest of the world sat slackjawed in amazement at the farrago of undiluted leavings issuing from the Oval orifice.

"Those with even the slightest acquaintance with history were scratching their heads at Bush's yoking of Iran, Iraq and North Korea in an unholy pact to destroy America. Surely there must be some mistake, they said. Surely there'd been a squiggle on the screen, and Bush had simply misread the lines that had been written for him. Perhaps he meant to say "taxis of evil," referring to the devilish problems of urban transport in America's cities. Or maybe even "Texas boll weevil," naming a threat to the American "heartland" much more real and immediate than the imaginary gizmos of his chosen dastards." {snip!}

"Why mince words? Bush is a war profiteer on a vast, historic scale, a man with only one animating principle: the aggrandizement of his own pampered self and his elitist clique. This greed compromises every action taken by his regime - because they all result in profits for his gang. Another example: Bush puts U.S. bases in Central Asia; Dick Cheney's Halliburton gets the construction contracts; Daddy's Carlyle Group supplies the weaponry; Dub's buds in the oil bidness get protection for their new pipelines

Not sure what to make of this one: "Stargate Edinburgh"
by Andy Hennessey, BeyondBoundaries - a weird mix of history, legend, conspiracy, and sci-fi:

"For me, the story begins in 1980, in Edinburgh, Scotland. For others, there is a much more ancient reality behind Edinburgh and the Lothians, dark secrets, arcane bloodlines and a procession of alien beings and Scottish thrones receding into the mists of time - to the fabled remains of Atlantis, and the Watchers whose magical powers have stretched across the aeons and whose grasp on the temporary hopes of humanity today is still yet to be proven and put to the test. But it looks like that time is soon to come.

"Britain, is the white isle of Atlantis, of the Hesperides, Thule, the isle of the dead, and isle of ancient tombs and underground secrets. Scotland is the holy land, sacred to the Romans for they put the ditch on the English side to protect it from the south. What terrible secrets, what terrible heresy occurred here that even the hands of medieval
monks would alter the place names so drastically. What is the terrible secret of Edinburgh?"
