  • 'Alien Megastructure' Star Only Gets More Mysterious

    Popular Science ^ | May 10, 2016 | Sarah Fecht
    Every now and then, a distant star called KIC 8462852 dims by as much as 20 percent. That's huge. Even a passing planet as big as Jupiter would only block about 1 percent of the star's light. Ruling out a planet, scientists have no idea what could be eclipsing the star (which is informally known as 'Tabby's Star'). The leading hypothesis is a family of really big comets, but that doesn't quite fit. Astronomer Jason Wright pointed out that the light patterns are consistent with what we'd expect if aliens had built a Dyson swarm of solar collectors around the...
  • Transvestite Day at My Local Wal Mart??

    may 22 2016 | an amused, middle-aged woman
    Anyone out shopping yesterday notice more transvestites than usual? In my local WalMart I counted 5 definitely and maybe 7 and no I didn't go into the bathroom. In a good year I'll see maybe .75 total transvestites in this lily-white, upper-crust area Wal Mart in the Capital District of NY. No pictures as I'm awful with my phone/camera and being sneaky. I realize evidence is crucial to the believability of this event and I am sorry, and that's why I'm wondering anyone else saw this. It looked like an organized event, or maybe the bus of a traveling Drag...

    Sierra Vista Herald ^ | Elizabeth Cowan
    Let’s be frank. Human beings are a vengeful lot. They are emotional and strike back in the heat of the moment. Few have learned that “Revenge is a dish best served cold.” Whether we admit it or not, each of us possesses both a light and dark side. But in most cases, one or the other is in control. Very few people find total balance and manage to maintain that balance. Consequently, our lives are a continuous roller coaster ride. Shall we start at the beginning and revisit the famous pastoral couple — Adam and Eve? Since there is no...

    Comas. Ha ha. There’s a funny topic. In the news recently was the story of a man named Jake Booth, who is a 35-year-old Army veteran living in Florida. He had suffered a heart attack as a result of a bad case of pneumonia and was put into a medically-induced coma. He woke from the coma on April 3, after a full 48 days of lying unconscious in a hospital bed. As he slowly opened his eyes, he saw his closest friends and family members sitting anxiously by his side, waiting for him to speak his first words. You would...

First of all, let me say that this is sick. An Abomination.

Somehow, she managed to say this with a straight face, which is a far cry from what I was doing as I watched this clown show – So, the women in her office building are standing around resembling human popsicles and her best idea was to go on TV and complain about it?

    A member of the United Church of Christ’s former Executive Council and a transgender leader within the denomination has been appointed to serve on President Barack Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-based Neighborhood Partnerships. Barbara Satin is the first transgender woman to serve on the advisory council. "Given the current political climate, I believe it's important that a voice of faith representing the transgender and gender non-conforming community—as well as a person of my years, nearly 82—be present and heard in these vital conversations," said Satin, who was involved in the church’s 2003 decision to affirm the inclusion of transgender people...

    For those of us who remember bits and pieces of Greek mythology, or who play lots of role playing video games, a Chimera was a monstrous hybrid creature often depicted as part lion, part goat, and part snake. In today’s world however Chimeras are very real and in this writer’s humble opinion, very disturbing. The word Chimera today refers most often to animals that are gene spliced with other animals creating a kind of hybrid species. As if this attempt at playing God isn’t alarming enough, human cells are being added to pigs, sheep, goats, mice, and other animals that...

    "Hang up the phone." comes from one specific kind of land-line phone that had a kind of hook you'd hang the handset from when you were done. Doing so would pull down the hook that was connected to a switch inside the phone that would disconnect the line. And lots of nautical stuff: Groggy - In 1740, British Admiral Vernon (whose nickname was "Old Grogram" for the cloak of grogram which he wore) ordered that the sailors' daily ration of rum be diluted with water.

    As it stands now Sen. Cruz has 550 hard delegates and 15 soft delegates. He will pick up 20 here, and 27 there, and maybe even 100+ delegates. It is highly foreseeable that Ted reaches 666 delegates. Sadly, many are fearful that Ted may be 'locked in' or cursed at 666- the "Mark of the Beast." This can not be Ted's fate for 2016. Republican delegates must be in agreement to raise him above 666. An uncommitted delegate must be persuaded to vote for Ted and carry him beyond 'the mark' to 667.

    Control language and you control thought. That is why progressives have been erasing our language one word at a time, boxing us into an ever smaller corner of what they decide should be permissible. The latest word to be banished is “Eskimo.” The taxpayer-funded thought police at NPR explain that although the word comes from the Ojibwe language, it has a “controversial history.” That is, it could be tainted with Western culture: -People in many parts of the Arctic consider Eskimo a derogatory term because it was widely used by racist, non-native colonizers.- Anything used by the colonizers who brought...

He's also the one most likely to talk about UFOs, or as advocates prefer to say these days, “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.”(VIDEO-AT-LINK) Podesta's credentials as both a political insider and a UFO advocate are sterling. He was White House chief of staff at the end of President Bill Clinton’s second term and, more recently, a counselor to President Barack Obama. Since 2002, Podesta has openly advocated for the public release of documents concerning UAPs and Area 51. Since...

    Media coverage of Pope Francis’ Amoris Laetitia typically noted that it reaffirmed the Catholic Church’s opposition to gay marriage. Slate’s William Saletan acknowledges the literal truth of that reporting, but suggested in an April 8 article that the document contains seeds that will sprout into Vatican acceptance of same-sex unions, though he admits that process “might take centuries.” Saletan argued that in time, the Church will extend Amoris Laetitia’s treatment of infertile heterosexual couples to same-sex couples: “This double standard, between homosexuality and other forms of infertility, is the cracked pillar at the foundation of the church’s policy against same-sex...

The annual event is aimed at promoting the theory of White Privilege – that American society is hopelessly stacked against minorities and the only way to fix the system is for white people to acknowledge their immense "privilege" and repent.

In the new ad, a girl portraying Alice from the beloved childhood fairy tale "Alice in Wonderland" comes across a handgun and shoots herself in the face. An actor dressed in a white rabbit costume looks on in horror for added effect. As the young girl shoots herself and creepy music plays, a narrator is heard saying, “Over one-third of all American households have a gun. Ask your neighbor: Is there a gun where they play? Asking saves kids.”

Smiley did have some criticism for Democrats––they’re taking the black vote for granted––but also said that black people shouldn’t be expected to vote for Republicans running a “segregated campaign.” He said that Donald Trump and Ted Cruz have not engaged in minority outreach and let other groups know that their votes matter.
