    From Yahoo:

    Well, as we all know by now, last week the judge threw the book at part-time pop star Paris Hilton..... when the judge refused to let Elliot take the fall, the harebrained heiress changed her strategy...and asked her fans to sign a petition urging California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to pardon her because she provides "beauty and excitement to (most of) our otherwise mundane lives"
    I sure am glad Paris is around to spice up my otherwise mundane existence.

    If anyone starts up a petition to Schwarzenegger to urge him to consider capital punishment for Paris, I'll sign. Let me know.

    Man in underwear wrestles leopard out of bed



    Du Mosch's pet cat was in the bed with him at the time, along with his young daughter who had been frightened by a mosquito in her own room.
    Imagine how traumatized this girl must be after freaking out about just a mosquito.

    there is nothing special about this article. I just post it because it is yet another example of why I hate the Arizona Republic so much.

    note: the headline says the exact opposite of what the story says. It's like the page editor is either too stupid or too lazy to comprehend what a simple 5-sentence article says.


    Smoker stabbed in throat after refusing to move

    An argument about smoking in front of a bar led to a man being stabbed in the throat with a pocketknife on the 4100 block of East McDowell Road early Tuesday morning.

    The victim asked 40-year-old Isman Warsame not to smoke near a doorway of Wander Inn Bar and the two argued, according to Phoenix Police documents.

    Warsame then took out a pocketknife and stabbed the victim's throat, according to those documents. The victim is in serious but stable condition.

    Police are searching for Warsame, who authorities believe fled the scene, according to Phoenix Police documents.

    So the smoker was the stabber? Oh man. That is seriously poor editing. I used to subscribe to the Republic back in 2000, but I never had enough time to read the whole thing, and my god, all that paper garbage. And of course the writing is shit. No thanks.

    ahahahahahahhahaa that's funny. but she's right only creepy adults like ken do that shit.

    I liked this part the best:

    “I can’t really comment on your family dynamics,” said Brandee Barker, a Facebook spokeswoman. “But I can say that more than 50 percent of Facebook users are outside of college now. As our original demographic gets older, we want to be able to include their social networks.”

    “Maybe I should lay off my daughter,” I said.

    “Facebook is all about being a reflection of real-world relationships,” she said. “The same thing you’re experiencing with your daughter online is a reflection of how you’re not a part of her social network in real life.”

    “I thought you weren’t going to comment on my family dynamics,” I said.

    yes but the research is not just for research's sake, right? I mean eventually we'll want to be able to apply what we wll have learned. And to do that we're back to the egg/embryo roadblock. at least for now.

    you're the expert, have I understood that right?

    You are exactly right, I am counting on the "roadblock" to be lifted. However, in order to keep up with the rest of the world, until the ban is lifted, these de-differentiated cells provide a novel tool for embryonic stem cell research in the U.S. I am hardly an expert, but, with more work done on these cells and understanding what causes them to go back to their (semi)pluripotent state I see no reason why they could not have the same potential as cells taken directly from an embryo.

    I think they could have been more, um, careful in writing the headline.

    I am still hugely confused by that site. I'm not sure I understand the skewed bell curve they show. And various other mitigating factors.

    Also I hover around 15%.

    Haha, nice, Bryan. I hope it wasn't too scary, coming across my name in a book like that.


    Yesterday I read a review of Boxer which mentioned Alligator as being like "Williard Grant Conspiracy gone post-punk." At the time I laughed at this (and other, more ridiculous statements) but I'm listening to Flying Low this morning and I kinda hear where they're coming from.

    The voice is a little more gravely but it's still mellow and lazy. The music has a little more old time country roughness to it but there's no twang. The strings and such are there, too. Also I love both bands.

    I know this is a little worthless without linking the review (which was no longer than this post) but whatev.

    I predict a huge increase in people saying things like "who gaybombed this party?". This is terrible news for witty banter.

    Girl's feet severed on ride at Six Flags in Kentucky

    (CNN) -- A girl's feet were cut off Thursday when a free-fall thrill ride malfunctioned at the Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom Amusement Park in Louisville, Kentucky, police said.

    A cord wrapped around the 16-year-old's feet and severed them at her ankles while she was on the "Superman Tower of Power," a police dispatcher said. The girl was taken to a local hospital.

    An unidentified witness told CNN affiliate WLKY she saw a cable on the ride snap.

    "The people on the ride just came and hit the ground," she said. "When I got up there, the lady she was just sitting there, and she didn't have no legs. ... And she was just there, calm, probably in shock from everything."

    "That could have been all of us -- riding that ride," witness Whitney Sandfer told CNN affiliate WDRB/WMYO.

    The incident took place shortly before 5 p.m. ET, according to Six Flags spokeswoman Wendy Goldberg. The park remained open, but the ride in question was shut down and will remain so until the full investigation is complete, Goldberg said.

    During the ride, passengers are lifted to 177 feet, suspended momentarily and then dropped, according to the park's Web site.

    Passengers drop 154 feet at 54 mph, stopping "just 20 terrifying feet above the pavement," it adds.

    "I seen the car go up. Then, like, the cable broke, I heard -- pwchh -- and I heard a lot of people screaming," Chris Stinnett, who was at a ride next to the Superman Tower of Power, told WDRB/WMYO.

    "The cable went under the car -- and I seen it pull up and hit a lot of people -- and I seen them bring their legs up," Stinnett said.

    The ride was introduced in 1995.

    Frankly, I need to hear someone pronounce "pwchh," because I just can't make it work in my head. Having grown up in Southwestern Ohio, though, it's nice to be able to hear the rest of the quote in that distinctive Kentucky accent.
