  • I do not like throw pillows. I find them annoying.

    It does seem that men are wearing neckties less and less. Taking the train to Manhattan, I only see a few men wearing ties these days. I'm thinking maybe they keep their ties at the office and put them on there? After all, not only do I keep a stash of ties in my office but I have my dress shoes there as well so I don't have to wear them back and forth on the train. Instead, I come into the city wearing slip-ons like Mr. Rogers used to put on when he came into his house on that...

    Police in West Virginia have apprehended masked bandits who were drunkenly acting up in town -- but they weren't humans. Neighbors had reported two raccoons that they thought were rabid to police, but it turned out they were just drunk on fermented crabapples, the Milton Police Department wrote on its Facebook page.

  • Monty Python live (mostly), review: poignant and predictable, but tremendous fun

    Watching the livestream of Monty Python's last ever performance on GOLD, it was impossible not to experience a tingle of sadness. So this was it, the final performance by the most influential comedy troupe of all time. Forty-odd years since Monty Python's Flying Circus revolutionized television humour and unleashed a legion of surreal catchphrases John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin departed the stage at London's O2 Arena to the strains of their darkly hilarious (or is it hilariously dark?) anthem Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life. Watching the swan-song was a 15,000 live...

    A WOMAN suffered injuries to her face and chest after being headbutted by a 7ft MOOSE. The 50-stone animal attacked her as she tried to CUDDLE it. The 24-year-old woman had spotted the moose eating from a tree in Anchorage, Alaska. A police spokeswoman warned people "not to agitate the moose".

    So, my daughter thinks she lost her favorite D.S. games in the back of the car. It either went behind the seat, or down that little hole where the seatbelts come out of. Is there a way I can get it back short of shoving my hands down blindly in there?
  • Danger on the highway with moose on loose

    Two fatal highway collisions with moose in recent weeks serve as a frightening reminder of the dangers of driving in this province.On June 30, a 58-year-old male was killed on Route 8 in Lavillette when his vehicle struck a moose. Just a day later, a 66-year-old female died after hitting a moose near Duff Lake on Highway 11 in Atholville.Dwayne Sabine, a fish and wildlife biologist with the Department of Natural Resources, said moose are moving around a lot this time of year so it's important to be on the lookout."They can be on the road any time of year...

    About me: Lurker - since 1998 Member - since 1999 In self-imposed exile - since April 2007 The tone of the debate and the attacks on long-time fellow Freepers for the cardinal sin of daring to support Rudy Giuliani in early 2007 around here have really saddened me. Instead of fighting the enemy FR is now imposing an 'ideological purity' test on FR members. The well-oiled train has gone off the rails and Mr. Robinson risks becoming the next Joe Farah - a fellow who started a great website for conservative news and opinions, but who gradually drifted off to...

  • Riots in Qalqiliya (West Bank): several wounded

    02/12/2006 4:51:42 PM PST · by struwwelpeter · 3 replies · 117+ views ^ | February 12th, 2006
    In the Arab village of Nabi Elias in the Qalqiliya region, unknown culprits wrote 'Mohammed is a pig' on the wall of a mosque, and added the six-pointed Star of David as their signature. This was reported by the KURSOR news agency. According to witnesses, the graffiti was done on Sunday night. At about 04:30 AM local time on February 12th, a car with Israeli plates drove up the mosque and several men with small aerosol paint cans got out. Later in the days the writing was removed from the wall of the religious building, with help of soldiers from...
  • Russian editorial on the 'caricature war'

    Original title: Short memory, narrow horizon The 'caricature war' has certainly resulted in a wave of urgent commentaries. In Russia they essentially are reduced to the theory that the Moslem world is displaying unity in the face of a weakening and de-Christianizing Europe. In the Russian liberal media regret prevails about the 'sunset of Europe', while our nationalist-patriotic press shows approval of the Moslem behavior and complain about a lack of unity among our own Orthodox. Here and there one detects a slight nervousness: what if the dusky merchants at the Cherkizovsky market decide to burn cars in front of...

    It is a complex topic, what can you say? What can offend someone is not always understandable, and in that sense if someone really wants to be offended, he will find a reason. Recently I was in the Moscow Metro and in a big hurry. In my haste, I accidentally bumped into a man. I immediately apologized, but at the same time I was excusing myself there followed a blow to my back. "What's that for?" I asked, dumbfounded. "Why did you push me?" he replied. "But I apologized." "And why should I care that you apologized?" "But I didn't...

    Weve all seen and heard of a place called Free Republic, its full of divorced or wife-beating conservative slobs who have the hygene of John Goodman after a long picnic. They thrive on stupid,worthless topics that focus around the "wonder of life" and "lets keep people who cant feel or think alive because were to stubborn to admit that its pretty damn foolish". But above all other abominations in this world is the wretched "Admin Mod", a man of horrible values and the judgement of a meth lab. It is he who makes free republic, well not free at all,...

    The Norwegian Nobel Institute and VG ^ | 27/04/05 | Olav Njølstad
    Olav Njølstad of the Norwegian Nobel Institute has written an Article that claims that US. Int. services stopped the Norwegians from creating the A-bomb. Norway and Sweden coroporated in enriching uranium and had large amount of "heavy Water" which they planned to use in the creation of the bomb. Us. Intelligence warned Norwegian auth. that this could lead to agression from U.S.S.R in 1947/48 and again in 1950 when Norway had started negotiantions with France in an energy program, this time due to the fact that they meant the french leader of the energy program was a communist.

    At night on a dark country road, all that the headlights catch are the shadowy legs the size of tree trunks rising out of the pavement. Standing six feet at the shoulder, weighing up to 1,000 pounds, with massive antlers more than five feet across, moose tower over automobiles and have no fear of them. AP Photo Increasingly the undisputed giants of the northern forest are tangling with traffic as they expand south. Massachusetts motorists hit 52 moose last year, a more than sixfold increase in four years. For decades road officials have relied on warning signs and publicity campaigns...

    If nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition, then how about Monty Python's surreal humour brought to a London stage, in French, with English surtitles? That is exactly what a French troupe has done in the first and only authorised stage version of the television series that earned Monty Python international cult status. "It is like we have been adopted as knights of Camelot," said producer Remy Renoux, referring to "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" in which French soldiers taunt King Arthur and his companions with insults like "Your mother was a hamster!" "If Python fans are a little anxious they...

    With a quick glance, it looks just like any other pedestrian crossing sign -- a yellow, diamond-shaped sign with a person walking. But a long stare at the sign and there's something strange -- a Hula-Hoop around the pedestrian's body. Across the country -- and now Chicago -- these unusual pedestrian crossing signs are popping up and leaving people scratching their heads as to who left them and what they mean. The signs have also appeared in New York, Washington, D.C., and even Utah's Arches National Park. "I figured it was done as a joke," said Paul Puskar, who lives...
