    What a nice day. Fall and all of that. I just saw someone on tv make a meatloaf that was one half chuck and one half BACON. Yikes it did sound good. I should do something constructive today. It's really odd waking up and having to do nothing and owe no one my time of day. Interesting and still not used to it. cr****

    We sang almost 60 songs in four hours at karaoke last night. My voice was shredded moving into the fourth hour because I tend to pick screamy songs and did not hold back. But, still, so much fun.

    CHICAGO -- A joke by the satirical newspaper The Onion appears to have gotten lost in translation.

    An Iranian news agency picked up -- as fact -- a story from the paper about a supposed survey showing an overwhelming majority of rural white Americans would rather vote for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than President Barack Obama. But it was made up, like everything in the just-for-laughs newspaper, which is headquartered in Chicago.

    The English-language service of Iran's semiofficial Fars news agency republished the story Friday, several days after it appeared in The Onion.

    The Iranian version copied the original word-for-word, even including a made-up quote from a fictional West Virginia resident who says he'd rather go to a baseball game with Ahmadinejad because "he takes national defense seriously, and he'd never let some gay protesters tell him how to run his country like Obama does."

    Homosexual acts are punishable by death in Iran, and Ahmadinejad famously said during a 2007 appearance at Columbia University that "in Iran we don't have homosexuals like in your country."

    The Iranian version of the article leaves out only The Onion's description of Ahmadinejad as "a man who has repeatedly denied the Holocaust and has had numerous political prisoners executed."

    The article was featured prominently on the Fars website alongside its usual fare of stories about advances in Iranian military technology, condemnation of Israel and Iran's nuclear program. The story appeared to have been taken down by about mid-day, Chicago time.

    Calls to Fars representatives were not answered Friday.

    The Onion reveled in the fact that it had been taken seriously.

    Onion editor Will Tracy put out a tongue-in-cheek statement that referred to Fars as "a subsidiary of The Onion" that has acted as the paper's Middle Eastern bureau since it was founded in the mid-1980s by Onion publisher T. Herman Zweibel.

    "The Onion freely shares content with Fars and commends the journalists at Iran's Finest News Source on their superb reportage," Tracy said in jest.

    It's not the first time a foreign news outlet has been duped by The Onion. In 2002, the Beijing Evening News, one of the Chinese capital's biggest newspapers, picked up a story from The Onion that claimed members of Congress were threatening to leave Washington unless the building underwent a makeover that included more bathrooms and a retractable dome.

    so did I miss it. I went to the link and on tv and didn't see much

    People never fail to make me wonder: I watched a show about selling multi million dollar homes. This head chick agent is going to do an open house. She decides that she is going to have a painter do a live painting during the opening. She says "That is such an original and great idea, I have never seen something like that done in public". I paraphrase a bit but geez, go to Coachella, or an STS9 show and that is old hat. Oh well. I have a question for the board later. Off to the store ..... cr****

    yeah, you missed it. i don't know why some people had problems and others were fine. i had no issue. the live feed was about a minute behind discovery channel; however i heard some people in cali weren't getting the live feed on discovery. it was a success. still verifying if he broke the sound barrier. his freefall was actually shorter than the guy from the 60s, despite the higher altitude.

    Wow, that was some pretty gripping stuff, I just turned it on to see what the deal was and was transfixed the entire time. I'm glad everything worked out fine in the end, because there were definitely moments when it seemed like things were about to go very wrong.

    Do you really think this is "worth a watch" ? Does this even make any sense with out the context explained ?

    I find it so damn embarrassing that our Prime Minister and her opponent behave like monkeys in a tree hurling their own shit at each other. I know this is hardly unique to Australian politics but unfortunately that voice is. Guess I will be voting for The Australian Marijuana Party Again.
