It must be bad out there economically--here's a story about a guy who is selling the original starship model used in the movie Forbidden Planet. Before I'd get rid of this item I'd really have to be hurting---http://www.denverpost.com/business/ci_11180380
Here are acouple of just plain strange items that i ran across...first a Mexican beauty queen--Miss Mexico or something like that was arrested with 7 guys, machine guns and dope in an SUV---sounds like a party going somewhere to happen----http://edition.cnn.com/2008/WORLD/americas/12/23/mexico.beauty.queen/index.html
http://rawstory.com/news/2008/Karl_Roves_IT_guru_Mike_Connell_1220.html Festivus for the rest of us...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Festivus_for_the_rest_of_us Festivus picked up this year as a celebration---in some places they even put up festivus poles near nativity scenes for equal time during the holidays....it's really apparently upsetting the christian ethic...http://www.miamiherald.com/news/miami-dade/story/823440.html
Well, it's official---the future's turned out to be crap---the Nakagin building, (one of my favorite "buildings of the future") in Tokyo is in danger of being torn down--i can't stand it---to me this concept was wondrous. A building that could grow as necessary by merely attaching additional cube habitat's---i cannot believe that they are going to demolish this building!So many of the visions of the future from the 1960's and 70's were too hopeful, our future is actually going to be poor and lacking in vision i guess--what a bummer. http://gizmodo.com/5117473/nakagin-capsule-tower-looks-to-be-from-the-future-but-probably-wont-make-it-there
WELL--WELL--WELL--Sarah Palin that great representative of the right wing conservative, religious element of the American populace...Levi Johnston, the 18 year old father of Sarah Palin's out of wedlock, grand baby---well the boy's Mama, Sheri L. Johnston, Palin's Mother in Law---(although in hillbilly terms i don't know what the biological term actually is) was picked up and charged with dealing dope. Sounds like she was cooking meth from the way the article reads--- When i read this all i could think of was the stupidity laden populace at her rallies...I really am enjoying this....I mean i really am, she's unbelievable a perfect storm of an example of what brought America to the state that it is in. "I taught my daughter all about abstinence, and all i got was this lousy grand baby". http://www.adn.com/news/alaska/crime/story/628010.htmlOther members of the conservative Zombie Army in the news lately include these Jesus freaks now with 18 cult like children----I'll say this one more time----IT'S A VAGINA----NOT A CLOWN CAR! http://www.duggarfamily.com/ and to sum up---two members of a death metal wannta-be band in Italy stabbed their guitar player for his lousy playing---how could they tell? but still it makes for wtf(?) reading....http://www.lep.co.uk/weirdnews/First-cut-is-the-deepest.4791893.jp
Information that has interested me this week---Chinese cities are attempting to regulate their citizens tendency to simply wander about doing errands in their pyjama's. Apparently doing one's shopping, hanging out all day in the neighborhood, walking your kid to school why not stay in the PJ's....i have several very politically conservative co-workers whose main rap is that the Chinese are going to take over the world---seems like if they do it they'll be in their footie-pj's.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/3723539/Chinas-pyjamas-police-fight-Shanghais-daytime-love-of-nightwear.htmlI absolutely hate to have to keep writing on this subject but it apparently will not stop until all the Bush appointee's are in jail or pushing shopping carts on the streets of LA--The latest "discovered" demon in the Bush rape of the treasury through the Iraq war comes to you from Armed Forces Information Service chief Alison Barber. Appointed to head a project(called fittingly America supports you--ha) which was supposed to provide money and support programs to armed service families while their significant other who were posted to the needless war zone. Ms Barber instead, provided zero support, zero money to service families and re-directed 8.8 million dollars to public relation firms run by her friends. Of course she's resigned with no jail time---as soon as Obama is in power we need to run these people down and put them in a PMITA prison. Incredible and unbelievable simply does not fit the robbery committed by Bush's minor imps and demons..read it and weep for yourself... http://blog.wired.com/defense/2008/12/asy.html At least their may be light on the horizon...79% of the American public approves of the way, the method the operation of the Obama transition..while 76% of the population wants Bush out of there RIGHT NOW!--maybe the country is not as stupid as i may have thought it was...
http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/12/09/Obama.poll/index.html However---if you're Amish and not a member of the Bush circle--you get fined and possibly do jail time for building your own house without permits. That the Amish are not allowed to comply to signing building permits by their religion.Amazing we are aren't we...Alison Barber goes free while the Amish go to jail??http://apnews.myway.com/article/20081213/D951NEGG0.html
