  • How a Fart Killed 10,000 People

    Farting, breaking wind, cutting the cheese, or gas. The English language has numerous words for flatulence and this is even before we devolve into the subcategories that make up the genre. Whatever you call it, farting is a taboo act, but it is also a source of fascination. It’s not for nothing that there is a popular children’s book series called Fart Squad or that the preview of the most recent installment of the Alvin and the Chipmunks dynasty led with the punchline, “Sorry, pizza toots.” Today farting is something for which we perfunctorily ask forgiveness, but in the past...

    There were several events yesterday that suggest to me the winds have shifted in Ted Cruz’s favor since he named Carly Fiorina his running mate. First, John Boehner had a complete and utter meltdown about Ted Cruz yesterday. He referred to Cruz as both an S.O.B. and Lucifer. Then Peter King, the noxious congressman from New York, came out and declared Cruz worse than the devil. He was followed up by former senator Judd Gregg who declared he would rather Trump than Cruz, even though he is a Kasich guy. The fact that . In fact, more polling out of...

    Donald J. Trump 24 mins · I have no idea whether or not the cover story about Ted Cruz in this week’s issue of the National Enquirer is true or not, but I had absolutely nothing to do with it, did not know about it, and have not, as yet, read it. Likewise, I have nothing to do with the National Enquirer and unlike Lyin’ Ted Cruz I do not surround myself with political hacks and henchman and then pretend total innocence. Ted Cruz’s problem with the National Enquirer is his and his alone, and while they were right about...

    The state of Hawaii claims that the "birth certificate" for Barack Obama in its files – presumably the document that was copied and distributed by the White House – remains confidential. The image released April 27 by the White House was described by administration officials as "proof positive" of Obama's Hawaiian birth. At that time, officials in Hawaii's health department and governor's office refused to provide confirmation to WND that the image released by the White House accurately represented the birth documentation in the state's custody. Now, officials have refused to respond to a subpoena requesting the birth record, citing...

    A referee ordered a penalty to be retaken in a Sunday league football game when an opposition player broke wind as the ball was kicked. The Chorlton Villa player got a yellow card for the noise which was classed as "ungentlemanly conduct". The team, who conceded a goal on the second take, went on to win the match 6-4 against International Manchester FC at Turn Moss in Stretford, Manchester. Villa manager Ian Treadwell said their conduct was "normally exemplary". "One of our players 'broke wind' and only the referee heard it and he booked the player," he said. "The other...

    Hey all! I was listening to Ramon Raquello and his orchestra (and who doesn't?) and just as they were playing "La Cumparsita", the program was interupted by a breaking news story from the Intercontinental Radio News with a bulletin on Mars. "At twenty minutes before eight, central time, Professor Farrell of the Mount Jennings Observatory, Chicago, Illinois, reports observing several explosions of incandescent gas, occurring at regular intervals on the planet Mars. The spectroscope indicates the gas to be hydrogen and moving towards the earth with enormous velocity. Professor Pierson of the Observatory at Princeton confirms Farrell's observation, and describes...

    The $700 million project in Logan County will be the third-largest in the nation, producing 400 megawatts with 267 turbines. Developers broke ground Wednesday on a $700 million wind farm in northeast Colorado that will be the nation's third-largest wind generator. FPL Energy and Invenergy Wind will develop the 400-megawatt project, which will yield enough power to supply about 120,000 homes. Xcel Energy will buy the facility's entire electric output. Combined with purchases from three other wind farms, the Peetz Table project will allow Xcel to meet the requirements of Colorado's renewable-energy standard seven years early.

    Does this guy Jose have a day/night job other than calling into Talk Radio shows throughout the day? I keep hearing him call into several talk radio shows all the time. I find it rather suspect the way mystery shoppers are plants for retail stores. Pretty transparent... Zzzzz... Geez, (lol) at least have him change his name.

  • E.D. Hill is a Moderate Democrat

    I apologize if this has been discussed before. I was watching Fox News this morning and heard E.D. Hill refer to herself as a moderate democrat. While I have no personal "beef" with her, I wonder why in the world would Fox News put a moderate democrat (besides Alan Combs) on the air on a consistent basis. There have been numerous times where I wondered where she was at politically because of some off-handed comments she's made. Now I know. Did anyone else pick up on this?

    Hong Kong - A primary school in China is fining pupils five yuan each time they fart in class, a news report said on Friday. Hu Zhuang Elementary School in Beijing has begun imposing the fines as part of a crackdown on bad hygiene habits in the wake of the Sars outbreak, according to the South China Morning Post. No one has been fined so far at the school which has also introduced rules banning pupils from dropping litter or coughing without covering their mouths.
