    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...

  • Bush works hard to win support from tea party, Koch Brothers, wins polite applause

    The Minneapolis Star Tribune ^ | August 21, 2015 | Thomas Beaumont, The Associated Press
    COLUMBUS, Ohio — Casting himself as a tax-cutting, passionate government reformer, Jeb Bush drew merely polite applause Friday from thousands of the nation's most-active tea party conservatives gathered at the billionaire industrialist Koch brothers' summit. Only when the Republican presidential candidate wrapped up his 20-minute speech by calling for a military buildup did the more than 3,000 conservatives from around the nation join in a sustained cheer for Bush, a familiar face in American politics but a newcomer in front of the tea party crowd. "I promise you, if I'm elected president of the United States, I will restore the...

    The Obama Illusions (aka the "Stinker" dollar) Zero 'dollar' is out. PLease use it in your fight against Obamacare. Obamacare is a stinker, and the fact they exempt themselves from it proves it. The fact none of the reps who came back in favor of it, said they would enroll in it - at least I have seen NO stories of them saying it, is further proof. Front side comes first, then the back. For the whole series of Zero dollar bills, go here: "Flickr Zero Bill Archive"

    Pocono Record ^ | April 16, 2008
    U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., wasted no time going on the offensive against Pat Toomey, his challenger in next year's Republican primary. Toomey officially announced his candidacy on Wednesday morning. Specter came out swinging Wednesday afternoon, accusing his Republican primary opponent of helping to cause the financial meltdown. "Toomey was against regulation. He was with Barney Frank and Dodd," he said, referring to two Democratic architects of the federal bank bailout, Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank and Connecticut Sen. Christopher Dodd. "He's a big part of the problem, and now like the AIG guys, he wants a promotion,” Specter said. “He...

    I have scanned the reviews and I have yet to find one good review of this film. I think we all knew it would be a stinker when the release date kept getting pushed back. Condolences to Ray Bradbury. Related thread

    EXCLUSIVE Hook sues for new hand-out Suing ... Hamza       By JOHN ASKILL LOATHED cleric Abu Hamza is suing benefit chiefs from his jail cell — for stopping cash over his alleged terror links.

A jail source said: “He has a cheek.”      Hamza already gets this lot...   Rent-free £500k house for wife and eight children  £2million from the taxpayer to fund 7-year legal fight against deportation  Bed-linen changed daily plus help to...

    <p>WEDNESDAY'S recall debate broke little new ground as meek journalists and inexperienced citizens lobbed softballs at Gov. Gray Davis and the candidates, failed to ask the toughest questions and let false statements go unchallenged. Why was Cruz Bustamante silent during the gross overspending of the Davis years? Why did Davis ignore former chief economist Ted Gibson that the state's revenue had dried up? Is Arianna Huffington, the anti-tax loophole candidate who uses tax loopholes, merely gathering anecdotes for a book?</p>
  • Privy to secrets of Monticello/Operation of privies a mystery (T Jefferson Indoor Crapper Design)

    <p>CHARLOTTESVILLE - It might not be the mystery of the century, but historical researchers at Monticello are puzzling over just how Thomas Jefferson's elaborate but primitive system of privies operated both inside the great house and out.</p> <p>Was the waste meant to be flushed away by water or hauled out by a wheeled device called an "earth car?" Were the privies locked for use only by the select? Were they used according to gender or station? What was used for toilet paper? Did they wash their hands after? What was the purpose of the long tunnels connected to the privies that Jefferson referred to as "sinks"? Why did he call the privies "air closets?"</p>
