    Planned Parenthood is harnessing star power in a new effort to advertise abortion. But with its straw-man messaging, Planned Parenthood and its celebrity PR team are only preaching to their choir. They’re not converting anyone. On August 26, Planned Parenthood announced that it had collected the signatures of nearly 140 musicians as part of its latest campaign for abortion called “Bans Off My Body.” To boast about its supporters, the nation’s largest abortion provider purchased an ad listing the artists – from Lady Gaga to Ariana Grande – in Billboard magazine. Planned Parenthood began its campaign in June in response...

    You hit the fast food drive-through a couple times a week, and your grocery cart is regularly filled with cookies, packaged doughnuts, ice cream, chips (and dip). But you’re thin. You run—a lot—and you’re not gaining any weight, so all’s good, right? Well, not exactly. Put down the chocolate cupcake and hear us out. While runners do tend to be much healthier than the general population, with lower rates of diabetes and heart disease, that’s largely due to a healthy diet rather than running regularly, says Sara Mahoney, Ph.D., chair of the department of exercise science at Bellarmine University.

  • The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon [funny fake movie trailer]

    The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon is a trailer for a movie that doesn’t actually exist. It’s the trailer itself that is the complete work. It’s ten minutes long, brilliantly hilarious, and violent enough that the fake opening says it’s for Restricted audiences, i.e., if it were an actual movie, it would be rated-R. So it’s definitely not for young children, the squeamish, or anyone else who might be offended by such content. Personally, I loved it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VDvgL58h_Y&feature=player_embedded

The three held the man on the ground. Police eventually had to shock him with a Taser.

    LOS ANGELES, November 7, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Top celebrities released strong endorsements for the YES on 73 campaign today during the final push for Prop 73, the "Parents' Right to Know" initiative on California's special election ballot next Tuesday, November 8th.

    President Bush, his brother Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and congressional leaders have all but abandoned their efforts to keep Terri Schiavo alive. But not Mary Porta and her giant spoon. When she heard on Sunday that religious activists planned to stage a protest in Washington on Monday, the Florida woman left the vigil outside Schiavo's hospice and checked herself -- and her five-foot-high Styrofoam spoon that says "Jeb, Please Feed Terri" -- onto a flight to the capital. The utensil was still wrapped in United Airlines plastic and tagged with a security seal from the Department of Homeland Security when...

    Christening spoon found in grave of Saxon king By David Derbyshire, Science Correspondent (Filed: 09/04/2004) An ancient silver spoon buried in the grave of an early Christian king may be one of the earliest christening spoons found in Britain, archaeologists said yesterday. The spoon was discovered alongside a lyre and copper box for holding relics in the burial chamber of the so-called Prince of Prittlewell, a high-ranking aristocrat who lived in Essex 1,400 years ago. When the grave was discovered this year in Southend-on-Sea, archaeologists described it as one of the most important finds in decades. Although the bones had...

    SOMERSET, Pa. (AP) -- A state prison inmate is charged with attempted homicide for allegedly attacking a prison guard with a sharpened plastic eating utensil known as a spork. State police this week charged Steven Cave, 22, who is serving a five- to 10-year sentence for robbery, for the Dec. 18 attack at the State Correctional Institution-Somerset. A corrections officer told police the trouble began when Cave threw a container of urine at him while he was serving meals in the restricted housing unit where Cave was being held. After the meal, Cave then refused to return his tray and...
