Today's funfilled events



...Ah, as the days fly by, I am always reminded of the sheer stupidity of human kind, and how unworthy of life many of us are. Thus, I'll continue to bring you stories that outline, not just the end of this world as we know it in the next 7 years, but those that illustrate the stupidity of humans. Hell, I'll even include the smart things that the few smart folks out there actually do. Thus, we have progress, decent, and possibility. Maybe I just need to go to bed. Here's some crap from the news.....
  • Men still work towards becoming God: Team of scientists maps out 99% of dog genome - Links to humans revealed (yes, that bitch really is a dog!): Scientists have finished a sophisticated map of a dog's genes, providing new insights into the deep links between humans and one of their most treasured animals, as well as creating a unique tool for studying a range of diseases, from cancer to blindness, that affect people and their dogs. The team of scientists, led by the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, determined virtually the entire genetic code, or genome, of the dog, making the achievement the canine equivalent of the completion two years ago of the Human Genome Project, the scientists said yesterday. Rough drafts of the dog genome have been released over the past several years, but the new work represents the first highly accurate version and also includes, for the first time, a detailed library of common genetic variations seen in dogs -- making possible a new generation of fast, accurate genetic studies of diseases and other traits. The researchers also identified a portion of the genome, about 5 percent, that is shared by dogs, humans, and mice -- meaning this portion is apparently essential to mammals. Yet less than half of that is devoted to genes. What the rest of the genetic material does is a mystery, but it is thought that some of this material may regulate when the genes turn off and on in particular cells. Still, the fact that the function of this crucial part of the genome is unknown underlines how much there is to learn. Now, they are working on mapping the genome of Lice. Really. Lice. No, really. I'm not kidding. Lice.
  • One Less Idiot: Marshall kills passenger at Miami Airport. Man claimed to have a bomb. - I don't really need to say more. Idiot killed in Florida. Only (insert number of population size of Florida here) to go.
  • Wild Pigs run rampant in W. Virginia - VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Wild pigs whose blood lines likely date to Virginia's earliest white settlers are tearing up sensitive beach lands with their tusks and threatening rare plants at Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. No, I, Hobbs, did not alter that sentence at all. It really states that the pigs blood lines date back to early white settlers. Something makes me thing they've been fucking pigs in Virginia for a long time.....
  • More people died around the world, suicide bombers, blah blah
  • Earth's Magnetic Pole is drifting, and Fast! - Earth's north magnetic pole is drifting away from North America and toward Siberia at such a clip that Alaska might lose its spectacular Northern Lights in the next 50 years, scientists said Thursday. Yeah, c'mon. More. More.
  • A Volcano has begun erupting in Indonesia. Keep em comin, boys
  • And finally, well, this one seems like its going to be good, but I'll have to do some more research. Click this link here, and PREPARE TO BE DAZZLED. The brief explanation, taken from the site, is as follows: The gradual release of confidential documents pertaining to a top secret exchange program of twelve US military personnel to Serpo, a planet of Zeta Reticuli, between the years 1965-78. This website here provides ABSOLUTE PROOF, from an anonymous source that 'once worked for the military,' that Roswell actually happened, that an Alien lived through it, that he had a device to communicate to his home planet, and that we actually had an exchange student program with them. Apparently physical proof will be released soon. Yes, hold your breath. Its coming. Its all coming!

What the? You are cutting down your posting? Next, you will give up stringing up the barbed wire and then the cows will run into the street and begin to graze on people's front lawns and the horse will knock over birdfeeders!

Sadly, my dear Elaine, I was spending more time doing what I SHOULD be doing (posting) than what the WANT me to do (working). this is a sad day for humanity. one of many
