You Are NOT Correct! - President Obama

Nor are you only "Black, African Am., or Negro."

I cannot believe you filled out the 2010 Census form & only checked 'black' for race!
I find it disgusting that race is defined by colour in this country at all but given that it is, you are black AND white and should have checked both boxes!

To not acknowledge your white half is to show complete disregard for half of your entire family! In fact, you do a great disservice to all multi-racial people in this land by sucumbing to stereotypes & old racist views of 'it only takes a drop'.
Can you imagine the uproar if you had checked just 'white'? That uproar should be loud in your ears right now about your choice of heritage, or more accurately, your choice to only acknowledge half of it.

Is it not illegal to not be completely honest on this Census form?

Shame on you!

I can tell you for a fact, you mother would be very hurt!

Malena & Rodan - A Love Story

Awwwww, doesn't this make you all goose-bumpy?

ZAGREB, March 25, 2010 (AFP) - A male stork proved once again that distance is no bar to true love as it flew thousands of kilometres back to its handicapped mate in a Croatian village, local media said Thursday.

This is the fifth year in a row that the stork, named Rodan, has made the epic journey of some 13,000 kilometers (8,060 miles) from South Africa to the village of Brodski Varos, in eastern Croatia, the Jutarnji List daily reported.

"This year he came a bit earlier," Stjepan Vokic, who cares for the female stork, named Malena, unable to fly since hunters shot through its wing, told the paper.

Rodan looked rather exhausted, Vokic added.

Every year the couple has raised a brood of chicks which Rodan has taught to fly since Malena cannot, Vokic said. This year is expected to be no different.

In August, Rodan and the young will start to prepare for their long journey to winter in South Africa while Malena remains in Brodski Varos until the return of its mate in the spring.

Back Bay - When Bees Attack!

Ok, maybe they were not exactly attacking, maybe they were just moving house...

Either way, thanx Mr. Anonymous Biker with the yellow jersey. You're anguished cry when you rode thru the bee swarm alerted me to the oncoming wall of buzz that I didn't hear due to the dulcet tones of Robbie Williams serenading me thru my earphones.
What do I do?
I remember - I race swiftly away in a zig-zag manner.
So I did...& lived to tell the tale.

Come to find out tho, the zig-zag method of escape is the subject of great debate. Zig-zag or make a 'beeline' to the closest cover - you make the call!

If bees attack you: L.A. County Agricultural Commissioner suggests:
- do not stay in one spot trying to remove bees with your hand
- leave area in a fast zig/zag pattern away
- do not swat at bees as you are running - cover face; use clothes to protect eyes and mouth from bees
- seek shelter inside enclosures where bees cannot enter such as a car or building (lying down or huddling under clothing or partial protection generally will not help)

Insecta Inspecta answers; WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF ATTACKED?
· Africanized bees are slow fliers and most healthy people can out run them.
· Run away in a straight line, protecting your face. Avoid other people, or they too will be attacked.

All agree however that either way you leave the area, you need to run like Usain Bolt.

Others who survived the giant bee swarm...

One that didn't...

& one that I thought did until I realised it was not a skunk...

Robbie - What Verse Is This Now? *cough* - Williams

If Robbie Williams is going to continue to perform, he has got to rehearse more & smoke less.

He needs to give up the durries & learn his lyrics! I'm tired of him forgetting lyrics all the time. It's funny on occasion, especially Angels (how can anyone forget Angels?) since that's by far his most requested song & an alternate national anthem in Britain.

This public relations campaign for Reality Killed The Video Star (his latest album) has been less that stellar & some of the performances have just been embarrassing & insulting & cringeworthy.

Give up the fags Rob & pick up the lyrics sheet - you're beautiful voice is going to shit & your performances are worth a bit more respect from you than a cursory glance at the song book!

Who knows, if you went on stage knowing all the words you were about to sing, maybe your debilitating stage fright may not be so debilitating....just sayin'

Bring Back The Old Next Blog Link

I don't like the 'new improved' Next Blog link!

I want the old one back!

That one that took me to random places & introduced me to things I'd never thought about or seen before. Art I liked or thought was weird, or both. Political opinions on all things from all sides. Space. Frogs. Stupid people & clever pets.

Now all I seem to get is families.
No matter where I start, within a couple of clicks I'm looking at a little face with a rosette covered ribbon around it's head.
Seriously, I didn't do that to my own kid, why do you think a picture of someone else's kid who I don't know would interest me?


I found this explanation...
We've made the Next Blog link more useful, by taking you to a blog that you might like.


I want to opt out of..."The new and improved Next Blog link will now take you to a blog with similar content, in a language that you understand."

I want to opt back into...'The old unimproved Next Blog link that will take me to a blog with nothing similar to the previous blog & not necessarily in the same language'....please?

Most Disgusting Male Award

Who'da thunk it?

I would have bet that Tiger-Lyin-Cheeta Woods & his behaviour would wear the 'Most Disgusting Male' crown for a long time...I would have lost the farm on that bet!

John Edwards is more disgusting than Woods.

The 'Most Disgusting Male' title changing hands so soon leaves me gobsmacked.

NFL Fail

1. ProBowl the week BEFORE Superbowl XLIV?


So not fair for the chosen players from the Colts & the Saints (6 from each team). They either play & risk injury or rest & miss the ProBowl.

2. The Who as halftime entertainment of Superbowl XLIV?!

What whaaat??

They're so old & irrelevant, even the ads being shown for their 'halftime spectacular' are videos from 20 years ago!

The band should be renamed Who Cares & the game renumbered as Superbowl XDED.

Tiger is a Lyin' & He's Always Been A Cheeta

So why is Elin the stalked person?


TigerLyinCheeta has gone to ground like the weasel he is, leaving Elin & his kids to take the tsunami of attention.

Way to man-up TigerLyinCheeta! You need to not only man-up but human-up! A descent person would not let anyone be exposed to this scrutiny if they had the power to stop it. Of course, you gave up that power when you chose to lie & cheat didn't you?

Obviously TigerLyinCheeta is not capable of descent behaviour so I'm calling out the paparazzi on this one - why has TigerLyinCheeta been given a 'Get Out Of The Glare of Public Scorn Free Card'?

Where is he? Palm Beach? New York? Aspen? Africa?

Since he left the hospital there has been sightings but no pics of him, no video, no interviews, no stalking of him while he's on vaykay with his kids.
Oh, that's right, he's not with his kids - Merry Christmas children!

Argh! I digress.

TigerLyinCheeta should be doing the walk of shame, not Elin or their kids or her sister or anyone else from her family.

Paparazzi, you are not doing your job - j'accuse! Leave Elin to her friends & family & make the life of TigerLyinCheeta miserable instead.

Chrisonabike = Illuminati Puppet!

EDIT Jan 9th, 2010.
I don't know how far the Illuminati's crusty, gnarled fingers extend into the blogosphere but eerily enuf, this vid, & in fact this user's whole account has just been closed!

Could it be that I uncovered a secret plot?
Are they corrupting pop culture with subliminal symbols??
Is that lean-to really a sign???
Is Robbie Williams really a puppet???? (no, not this kind of puppet!)
Do I have too much time on my hands right now?????

Prolly ;)

Whatever the case, I'm leaving the original post up as it gave me a giggle...

Bless you theorphan16 for your ernest, however slightly misguided interpretation of Bodies.
I am so tempted to join ATS just so I can post a link to this vid...

Q: When is a lean-to not a lean-to?
A: When it is a Freemason's symbol of a pyramid inserted into a pop video to secretly corrupt the youth of the world! hahahahahahaaaaaa

What do you say about these pics then?
