  1. That’s an old George Carlin recording linked to the racing video. Great moments in comedy! I have a lot of Carlin videos, but none of him actually doing that shtick. I do have the recording as an mp3 however.

BNP leader to attend Copenhagen climate conference

BNP leader Nick Griffin, who has said global warming is “essentially a hoax”, will be at the Copenhagen climate change conference.

The MEP will be there representing the European Parliament, as he sits on its environment committee.

The BNP said he would be “the only politician there prepared to say that the science is somewhat dodgy”.

After the homes are gone

Posted on November 29th, 2009 at 19:10 by John Sinteur in category: News

In its infamous Kelo decision in 2005, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that a New London, Conn., redevelopment agency could seize people’s private homes by eminent domain not only for public works but also for corporate development.

The well-laid plans of redevelopers, however, did not pan out. The land where Suzette Kelo’s little pink house once stood remains undeveloped. The proposed hotel-retail-condo “urban village” has not been built. And earlier this month, Pfizer Inc. announced that it is closing the $350 million research center in New London that was the anchor for the New London redevelopment plan, and will be relocating some 1,500 jobs.

“They stole our home for economic development,” ousted homeowner Michael Cristofaro told the New York Times. “It was all for Pfizer, and now they get up and walk away.”

Branding blunder gives Russia-Nigeria energy linkup a bad name

Posted on November 29th, 2009 at 11:43 by John Sinteur in category: Funny!, If you're in marketing, kill yourself

It probably seemed a good idea at the time. But Russia’s attempt to create a joint gas venture with Nigeria is set to become one of the classic branding disasters of all time ‑ after the new company was named Nigaz.

Senate report: Bin Laden was ‘within our grasp’

Posted on November 29th, 2009 at 11:42 by John Sinteur in category: News

[Quote:]

Osama bin Laden was unquestionably within reach of U.S. troops in the mountains of Tora Bora when American military leaders made the crucial and costly decision not to pursue the terrorist leader with massive force, a Senate report says.

The report asserts that the failure to kill or capture bin Laden at his most vulnerable in December 2001 has had lasting consequences beyond the fate of one man. Bin Laden’s escape laid the foundation for today’s reinvigorated Afghan insurgency and inflamed the internal strife now endangering Pakistan, it says.

[..]

At the time, Rumsfeld expressed concern that a large U.S. troop presence might fuel a backlash and he and some others said the evidence was not conclusive about bin Laden’s location.

Or, you could simply say that Bin Laden was more useful to Bush and Rumsfeld alive.

Law enforcement investigating man injured making pipe bombs

Following a pipe bomb explosion Monday night, police and federal law enforcement officials are trying to figure why a Center Avenue man turned his apartment into a bomb factory.

Police said no charges have been filed against Mark Campano, 56. Police found 30 completed pipe bombs in his apartment along with components to make more, plus 17 guns and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.

No charges? Probably because he didn’t say “Allah Ahkbar!”

Schools vet parents for Christmas festivities

Posted on November 29th, 2009 at 10:59 by John Sinteur in category: ¿ʞɔnɟ ǝɥʇ ʇɐɥʍ

[Quote:]

Parents who want to accompany their children to Christmas carol services and other festive activities are being officially vetted for criminal records in case they are paedophiles.

[..]

Graham McArthur, headmaster of Somersham primary school in Cambridgeshire, said checks on the two dozen parents volunteering to walk his 330 pupils to the carol service at nearby St John’s church on December 17 were necessary — even though they will be accompanied by teachers and a police community support escort when crossing the road.

“We rely quite a lot on parental volunteers. It is a community school and parental engagement is very important to being part of the community,” McArthur said.

“For the carol service they will need clearance [from the banned list] which is basically something we can do on the day. You need to see details of who they are, where they live and make several phone calls.

“Parents accept it’s about safeguarding the welfare of children. They accept it only has to be done once and it’s a necessary chore.”

These parents are fucking sheep. They should loudly complain about this waste and idiocy and very publicly state their children will not be part of this – and given the recent revelations in Ireland, they should probably insist the priests at the carol service be checked instead.

  1. That makes sense.
    They believe in christmas, so they are probably catholics, and catholic religion has strong ties with paedophilia.

    Guess it’s better to be on the safe side.

Shuttle

The Space Shuttle Discovery approaches the International Space Station for docking but before the link-up occurred, the orbiter “posed” for a thorough series of inspection photos. Here’s one:

  1. Great picture! You normally include a link for people who want to see more but I don’t see one here. Any chance you could include one?

  2. Try here.

    Also, view the above picture by its own in a window, it’s much bigger that way.

  3. Oooh, spread those bay doors wide, you saucy little space bus!
