From The Fart Dictionary

I had to chuckle when I read this:
CROP DUSTING: When farting, you walk really fast around the office so the smell is not in your area and everyone else gets a whiff but doesn't know where it came from.
Be careful when you do this. Do not stop until the full fart has been expelled. Walk an extra 30 feet to make sure the smell has left your pants.
Here are some more.

Zero Tolerance. Horseshit.

KATU 2 - Portland, Oregon:

"Salem, Ore. - A picture of a Marine holding an assault rifle has sparked a wave of controversy at a Salem high school.

The problem began when the Marine's sister brought the picture to McKay High School to post on a classroom bulletin board.
The assignment was to show McKay graduates at work.

However, the principal of the school, Cynthia Richardson, would not allow the picture to go up because of the school's zero tolerance policy on weapons.

'What message am I sending to my students if I post that picture?' she asked.


All it takes is one look around the school to see that there may be a problem with that logic, considering that the school mascot is seen carrying a sword.

'He has a sword. (That is) so true. We might have to revisit that,' said Richardson when KATU News asked her about the mascot's imagery."
Grow the fuck up already.

Oh Really?

Jane Fonda Regrets 1972 Visit to Vietnam Gun Site:
"Jane Fonda regrets her visit to a North Vietnamese gun site in 1972, the actress and fitness guru said in an interview with CBS television show '60 Minutes' to be aired Sunday."

It only took 30+ years for the bitch to feel any sort of remorse?

Well, It May Be A Start

Microsoft Files 117 Suits That Target 'Phishing'
Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq:MSFT - news) on Thursday said it was filing 117 lawsuits against unknown Internet site operators it charged were engaged in "phishing" schemes to obtain personal and financial information from unsuspecting consumers.
Kind of a fart in a whirlwind, but here's hoping it does some good.

Having been a victim of identity theft (not from phishing), I know how big of a pain in the ass it is to get cleaned up. YOU are responsible for any charges.

For instance - I don't know about anyone else, but I get probably twenty to thirty pieces of junk mail a week wanting to offer me credit somewhere. All I would have to do is fill in the blanks. My address to get the new card, your name, SSN, etc. No ID, no proof, and if necessary maybe a little manipulation with some whiteout (these apps are read by machinery not humans), and I'm on my way to Mexico.

So let's say a credit account gets opened by me in your name. Currently, it isn't the responsibility of the business to verify who really filled in the app. The app was probably generated from a mailing list, so the company is sure they have all the required information. They run a credit report on the name and give the money away. You don't get called, and the information isn't verified in any other way.
"What about the address?" you say. Well, they assume you've moved.

We need to make it as hard for people to use someone else's information to defraud as it is for us to clear our own names when it has happened. The only way to do that now, is to take precautions.

Until penalties stiffen or at least get enforced, all you can do is hope for the best.

A: It is permissible to seek enjoyment and comfort from one’s wife’s breasts. It is, however, not permissible to take in any liquid that emits from her breasts.

Another Booze Joke

A well-to-do young man met a beautiful young woman at an
exclusive party and was immediately smitten with her. He
took her on the town and eventually to his apartment where
he discovered she was not only a beautiful woman, but
also well-groomed, cultured and very intelligent. Hoping
to impress her, he offered her a glass of wine and asked
whether she preferred Port or Sherry.

"Oh, Sherry," she said, "by all means. To me, it's the
nectar of the Gods. Just looking at it in a crystal-clear
decanter fills me with a glorious sense of anticipation.
When that gorgeous liquid is poured into my glass, I inhale
the enchanting aroma and I'm lifted on the wings of ecstasy.
It seems as though I'm about to drink a magic potion...

"On the other hand, Port makes me fart."


Here's one for the all the folks who say the law shouldn't interfere with whom they marry:
First Cousins Get Married in Maryland:
"First cousins who were denied a marriage license by a Pennsylvania judge earlier this month were wed in a civil ceremony in Maryland, the couple said Monday."
What?!! The law told these first cousins they couldn't get married!!?? Hmm. Sorta like telling gays they can't get married.

So where do you draw the line then?
Anybody that wants to get married should be able to do so right? It shouldn't matter if you're queer, straight, a dog, a cat, a zebra, a brother, sister, mother, father....
Why the hell does the law stipulate who you can and cannot marry if you're in love?

Well, because some people are so fucking stupid they have to be told.

Update: Allah says it's okay to marry your first cousin as long as you weren't breastfed by your grandmother.
"If any body parts came out, then it will intercede for the mother on the day of Qiyaamat. (Shaami vol.2 pg.228)

The child who is breastfed by his maternal grandmother cannot marry his/her maternal first cousins. However, his biological brothers and sisters may be able to marry them. (Hidaaya; Hindiyyah)

and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best"
I'm so confused....

I Say Bullshit!

From Roto-Reuters:
NY Jury Awards $17.1 Million in Sick Smoker Case

A New York jury on Monday ordered Philip Morris to pay $17.1 million in punitive damages to a woman who accused the company of failing to warn her about the dangers of smoking, the woman's attorney said on Monday.

The award came one week after the same jury ordered Philip Morris and American Tobacco -- now a subsidiary of Reynolds American Inc. -- to pay $3.42 million to Norma Rose in compensatory damages, said her lawyer Stuart Finz.


Rose, 72, sued Altria Group's Philip Morris and American Tobacco in 1996, charging that smoking caused her lung cancer and that the companies failed to warn her of the dangers of cigarettes.

Rose, who started smoking before warning labels went on cigarettes in the 1960s, also accused the tobacco companies of manufacturing a defective product.
GODDAMMIT!!! What the hell is up with these people? Why are the tobacco companies having to pay these idiots for their stupidity?
So what. She started smoking before the warning labels had to be put on packs of smokes. Did she quit after they started being printed? I'm guessing not.
Even when she would get up in the morning and hack up a lung from smoking, I'm guessing she still didn't quit. In fact, I'd be willing to bet she fired up a quick butt during breaks in the courtroom.

Another opportunistic bitch trying to land the big payola. I'm sure it ain't over yet.


In the year 2005, the Lord came unto Noah, who was now living in the United States, and said, "Once again, the earth has become wicked and over-populated and I see the end of all flesh before me. Build another Ark and save two of every living thing along with a few good humans."
He gave Noah the blueprints, saying, "You have six months to build the Ark before I will start the unending rain for 40 days and 40 nights".

Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah weeping in his yard ... but no ark.
"Noah", He roared, "I'm about to start the rain! Where is the Ark?"

"Forgive me, Lord," begged Noah. "But things have changed. I needed a building permit. I've been arguing with the inspector about the need for a sprinkler system. My neighbors claim that I've violated theneighborhood zoning laws by building the Ark in my yard and exceeding the height limitations. We had to go to the Development Appeal Board for a decision. Then the Department of Transportation demanded a bond be posted for the future costs of moving power lines and other overhead obstructions, to clear the passage for the Ark's move to the sea. I argued that the sea would be coming to us, but they would hear nothing of it.

Getting the wood was another problem. There's a ban on cutting local trees in order to save the spotted owl I tried to convince the environmentalists that I needed the wood to save the owls. But no go!
When Istarted gathering the animals, I got sued by an animal rights group.They insisted that I was confining wild animals against their will.
As well, they argued the accommodation was too restrictive and it was cruel and inhumane to put so many animals in a confined space.
Then the EPA ruled that I couldn't build the Ark until they'd conducted an environmental impact study on your proposed flood.

I'm still trying to resolve a complaint with the Human RightsCommission on how many minorities I'm supposed to hire for my building crew.
Also, the trades unions say I can't use my sons. They insist I have to hire only Union workers with Ark building experience.

To make matters worse, the IRS seized all my assets, claiming I'm trying to leave the country illegally with endangered species.

So, forgive me, Lord, but it would take at least ten years for me to finish this Ark."
Suddenly the skies cleared the sun began to shine, and a rainbow stretched across the sky.

Noah looked up in wonder and asked, "You mean, You're not going to destroy the world?".

"No," said the Lord. "The government beat me to it.

Home for dinner

A man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner.

The man took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, "If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead?"

"No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied.

"Will you use it to gamble instead of buying food?" the man asked.

"No, I don't gamble," the homeless man said. "I need everything I can get just to stay alive."

"Will you spend this on greens fees at a golf course instead of food?" the man asked.

"Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't played golf in 20 years!"

"Will you spend the money on a woman in the red light district instead of food?" the man asked.

"What disease would I get for ten lousy bucks?" exclaimed the homeless man.

"Well," said the man, "I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a terrific dinner cooked by my wife."

The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting."

The man replied, "That's okay. I just want her to see what a man looks like who has given up beer, gambling, golf, and sex."

More Big Brother

From the AP:
N.D. Debates Black Box Privacy Safeguards
"The bill Holmberg is sponsoring — now up for Senate consideration after being approved Wednesday by the House — would require buyers to be told if their new car or truck is equipped with a black box and would prohibit the data from being used in court. Subscription services such as OnStar, which can be used to track a vehicle's movements, would be exempt."
I'm all for this bill. You should have the option to either use one or not.
The liberals will say "If you're doing nothing wrong, what do you have to hide?"
That isn't the point. The point is that you don't have the choice.
"According to the National Highway Transportation Administration, about 15 percent of vehicles — or about 30 million cars and trucks — have black boxes. About 65 percent to 90 percent of 2004 cars and trucks have them, according to the NHTA."
Yes, about 15% of vehicles. What they don't mention here is, that 15% includes any vehicle manufactured from day one. Vehicles have had these things in since the 90's. In fact, most domestic cars and trucks have them factory installed. So if you bought a domestic vehicle anytime since the early to mid nineties, you probably have a black box or 'Event Data Recorder' which is keeping tabs on you.

Some thoughts on black boxes:
  • What if your local gustappo will be able to write you a speeding ticket without even catching you red-handed.
  • You may have to go to the DMV once a year to download your year's worth of data and they could grant or refuse your driver's license based on your driving habits for the last year.
  • The law requires you to have insurance on your car. What if the insurance company declines you based on your driving habits, or because you don't want to release your black box data?
What, me paranoid? No, just concerned.

Joke Of The Day

Here's a funny(?) joke I stole from Release The Hounds!:
A burglar broke into a house one night. He shined his flashlight around, looking for valuables, and when he picked up a CD player to place in his sack, a strange, disembodied voice echoed from the dark saying, "Jesus is watching you."

He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight out, and froze. When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his head, promised himself a vacation after the next big score, then clicked the light on and began searching for more valuables.

Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard, "Jesus is watching you." Freaked out, he shone his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot.

"Did you say that?" He hissed at the parrot. "Yep," the parrot confessed, then squawked, "I'm just trying to warn you.

"The burglar relaxed. "Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?"

"Moses", replied the bird.

"Moses?" the burglar laughed. "What kind of people would name a bird Moses."

"The kind of people that would name a Rottweiler "Jesus."

Ironic Ain't It

The popular consensus seems to be that we all want tighter borders to keep illegal aliens in check.
"There's too many immigrants coming across the borders taking our jobs, abusing our welfare system and overcrowding our schools."
Not to mention, the thought of a flock of towel heads sneaking across the border only to meet up at Starbucks and decide how best to kill a bunch more Americans, or packing a dirty bomb across the desert so they can set it off in some downtown metropolis. But that's a topic for another day.

Back to the 'flood' of mexicans sneaking to America looking for a better way of life.
We've become accustom to buying fresh vegetables at the grocery store at acceptable prices. What keeps those prices low enough to afford these veggies? Illegal immigrants getting cheap wages to collect these veggies and get them to market.

Now again, americans bitch all day long about how there are too many mexicans sneaking across the border taking these lettuce picking jobs away from us, so we tighten the borders. We cut down on the number of illegals but that cuts back the workforce. So now the produce growers are hurting because they have fields full of produce that needs to be harvested, but they don't have the manpower to harvest it, and they have a time limit on the harvest. If the product stays in the field too long, it will spoil and be of no use.

But wait a minute. Without these illegals in the field taking our jobs, there should be tons of job openings now for citizens, right?
Yeah, right. Americans refuse to work as hard as these illegals without making more money to do the same job. Besides, they need more money so they can pay the tax on what they make. In order to pay the workers more money, the prices will have to go up. So we will be paying a lot more at the checkout counter for these items.

So what do we do then? Let the illegals in and keep our prices low, or bite the bullet and pay more for extra border security, and more for fresh produce?

It's a quandry ain't it.?

Halabja Anniversary

Just a little reminder of why we got rid of that fucknut Saddam.
March 16th marks 17 years since Saddam Hussein unleashed a poison gas attack against Kurdish villages in Halabja.
Populations of towns in northern Iraq, especially the town of Halabja, represent the largest civilian populations ever exposed to chemical and biological weapons. 250 population centers and 31 uninhabited strategic areas are known to have been attacked by Iraqi forces from April 1987 to August 1988.

In addition to chemical weapons use, for which there is forensic evidence, the Iraqi regime may also have used weaponized biological and radiological agents during the attacks. The population of northern Iraq is 4 million, and initial estimates suggest that as many as 250,000 people may have been exposed at some level. (Saddam's regime also used chemical weapons against Shi'ites and marsh Arabs in southern Iraq following the Gulf War. Additionally, an estimated 100,000 Iranian soldiers also survived Iraqi chemical attacks during the Iran-Iraq War.)

Of all the atrocities committed with weapons of mass destruction, none proved more horrific than the attack on Halabja, which took place over three days in March 1988. Halabja was bombarded with a concoction of chemical weapons which included mustard gas, and the nerve gases sarin, tabun and VX.

Five to seven thousand people of 80,000 inhabitants died immediately and a further 20,000 to 30,000 were injured, many severely. Initial studies indicate approximately 52% of current inhabitants were exposed at the time of the attack.

Since then, the HALABJA POST-GRADUATE MEDICAL INSTITUTE (HMI) was established to study and treat long term effects of these weapons.
Since being established, HMI centers have undertaken the following activities:

1. Medical Survey to identify all major medical problems and disability in 40,000 adults and children in order to provide prioritized care to those with greatest needs as a result of chem/bio exposure: HMI personnel are implementing survey using an innovative pictograph form.

2. Systematic study to determine frequency and types of cancers, congenital malformations, stillbirths and patients with serious or lethal medical conditions in order to effectively develop palliative care, prevention and treatment programs.

3. Mapping 281 known WMD attacks in Iraqi Kurdistan
Get that? 281. That means at least 281.

Bonus? For what? The most efficient way to manipulate the court system so they file bankrupcty? Learning how to bullshit the government into bailing them out? With our - the taxpayer's - money? So we could pay him a nice bonus?

There's way too many things wrong here.

Hygiene 101

  • 1- Go to the dentist and get your teeth cleaned.
  • 2- Floss every day. Food rots in between your teeth causing breath to be very offensive.
  • 3- Brush your tongue every time you brush your teeth.
  • 4- Use mouthwash.
  • 5- Stop drinking coffee on a regular basis. Coffee causes horrible breath.
  • 6- The small crevasses on your tonsils can collect food which may rot and turn white. These little white balls of rotten food can cause horrible, offensive breath and a bad tasting mouth. You may try pushing out this white stuff in your tonsils with a Q-tip. Be extra careful or have your doctor help.
  • 7- Stop using sugar based breath fresheners to hide your breath. Sugar may cause yeast build up which bacteria thrive off of, making your breath worse. Be careful of too much aspartame (Nutra Sweet), it could cause health problems.
  • 8- Cut your fingernails and toenails.
  • 9- Clean under your fingernails and and toenails with a small brush.
  • 10- Cut or pluck your nose hair.
  • 11- Clean inside and behind your ears.
  • 12- Shave your hairy ears
  • 13- Wash your butt hole. It may get exposed more than you think during sex
  • 14- Clean the inside of your belly button with soap and a wash cloth.
  • 15- Shave the back of your neck
  • 16- If you have bumps on your face or neck from shaving, ask your doctor for Retin-A.
  • 17- Push out all those blackheads on your nose or use a peeling strip from the drug store.
  • 18- Use a petroleum based lip conditioner or olive oil for your lips.
  • 19- Know the difference between "anti-perspirant" and "deodorant".
  • 20- Throw away your old, stained underwear and buy some new ones.
This goes for you too guys.

Got Gas?

Retail Gasoline Hits Record - AAA:
"U.S. retail prices for regular gasoline hit a record average of $2.055 a gallon on Thursday, according to motorist club AAA."
So what the hell here? If this is an average, the means elsewhere in the country people are paying what, $1.75 or less per gallon?
I pay about $2.35 here. So I don't want to hear how bad prices are in the rest of the country.

Drilling ANWR

From Roto-Reuters:
Senate to Vote on Alaska Refuge Oil Drilling:
Republicans trying to open Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling said on Tuesday they had the votes to win U.S. Senate approval of the controversial plan.
I would really like to see this pass for several reasons. The first being our usage of foreign oil. Now I didn't say 'dependence' on purpose. We have oil. A lot of it. We choose to use foreign oil rather than our own because of deals with devils years ago.

ANWR, and other places in Alaska is loaded with oil and gas. We also have massive reserves here in the lower 48.
The obvious sources such as Texas, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and so on. But what most people don't know is there are reserves of oil, coal and natural gas all over the western states such as Wyoming, Utah and Colorado that have been explored, drilled and capped. Yes, capped. I don't know why they were capped. But there are hundreds of wells drilled just to find resources then closed.
Read a little about Wyoming oil here. Do some reading and viewing of maps on Utah natural resources here, here, and here.
Drilling in ANWR is a long-sought Republican goal and a key part of the Bush administration's energy plan to boost domestic oil and natural gas supplies.
And it's time to bitch-slap the caribou hugging, dope smoking liberals to their senses here. After reading some articles on the area and talking to some people from Alaska, the conclusion is that the drilling site is so miniscule compared to the actual area inhabited or migrated across by the caribou, that the impact of having a roughly ten acre drilling site in a several thousand acre refuge is nonexistant.
And, Alaskans are chomping at the bit to get the drilling going. It would bring a healthy income to their economy.
"There is no way for America to drill it's way out of our energy crisis," said Democrat John Kerry of Massachusetts. Drilling in ANWR "doesn't change the price of oil for Americans."
Let me state the obvious here, what a moron. Of course there won't be any immediate drop in the price of oil. But eventually, there would be at least some competetive pricing. Since we have our own sources, we could genuinely compete with OPEC. The first word that comes to mind is - Duh. Competition drives down prices.
Alaska's congressional delegation is lobbying hard to open ANWR to oil drilling.
Again I say. Alaskans - at least the ones I have gotten an opinion from - really want this to happen. It would be a huge economical boost, and the environmental impact is virtually nonexistant.

But we still have the granola munching, seal squeezing whale huggers to contend with.
It's time for these idiots to wake up and realize that it is impossible to preserve every single blade of grass and every single field mouse in the world and still progress as a race.

But then, they would rather us be sitting in the dark, freezing.

Again, From The 'DUH' Files

Yet another bonehead study:
Malt Liquor Drink of Homeless and Unemployed -Study:

"Malt liquor, a type of beer that is higher in alcohol than other brews, is largely a drink of the homeless and unemployed, and is likely to be abused, U.S. researchers reported on Monday."
Likely to be abused? Are you sure? I don't believe it.
"Rhonda Jones-Webb, an expert in alcohol consumption and behavior at the University of Minnesota who reviewed the study, said she was concerned about the marketing of malt liquor."
An expert in alcohol consumption, eh? I'll bet she is. She's still at a university after all.

We needed a study for this? Good gawd. Work a shift in any 7-11 in a 'less than stellar' part of any city. You'll have all the study you need. And it won't cost the taxpayers a dime.

Idiot Gunman

Dallas Gunman Kills 3 From Car Sunroof:
"A man in a Jaguar stood up through the sunroof and opened fire with an assault rifle on another vehicle early Tuesday, killing three men and critically wounding a fourth, police said."
[emphasis mine]
Assault rifle? Of course it was an assault rifle. It was used in an assault.
"Authorities were searching for the gunman, whose car was described as a white or silver Jaguar with fancy wheels, said Cpl. Max Geron, a Dallas police spokesman."
Someone driving a Jaguar with fancy wheels, shooting at whomever.
Yup. That's a fine upstanding citizen there.

But in reality, it was all the gun's fault. Since it was an "assault" rifle, it was just randomly going off by itself shooting anyone who happened to be nearby. DAMN THOSE GUNS!!!

"Florida's Legislature is flush with good ideas. Sen. Al Lawson's involves a 2 cent-per-roll tax on toilet paper...

Bwah! What more could I possibly add to this?

Steaming Pile Of Shit Award

From CNN:
Ex-hostage disputes U.S. account of shooting:
"She was told 'we were less than a kilometer' from the airport, where a plane was waiting to take her back to Rome, 'when ... I only remember fire. At that point, a rain of fire and bullets hit us, shutting up forever the cheerful voices of a few minutes earlier.'
[Emphasis mine]
The pictures shown of the car she was in reveal no "rain of fire/bullets". Barely a scratch.
She then thought of something her captors had told her: 'The Americans don't want you to go back.'
Do you think maybe, just maybe, her captors lied to her? Perish the thought.
But then, we probably don't want a liberal, lefty, idiot, lying journaist to go back and make up more lies.
Saturday, the left-leaning Il Manifesto accused U.S. forces of 'assassinating' Calipari.
Sgrena's partner, Pierre Scolari, also blamed the shooting on the U.S. government, suggesting the incident was intentional.
But of course.
'I hope the Italian government does something because either this was an ambush, as I think, or we are dealing with imbeciles or terrorized kids who shoot at anyone,' he said, according to Reuters.
No, y'all are the imbeciles for thinking that. Ambush? You're screaming down the road, through checkpoints, and get shot. Uhh. That's what's supposed to happen.
Sgrena and her newspaper fiercely oppose the war. She wrote that she told her kidnappers that repeatedly, but they refused to let her go."
Journalists don't lie now do they?

So with that, the latest award recipient is :

"Erasing medical bills, credit card charges and other debts in bankruptcy soon will become more difficult under landmark legislation that has vaulted its last major hurdle before Senate passage."
Now I have no problem with someone who legitimately files for bankruptcy. For example, you or someone in your family gets hurt or sick, runs up a big hospital bill, and the dumb-ass insurance companies or HMO's we have now don't want to pay for shit. It can overwhelm you.
Or because of that injury or illness or even some other reason, you end up out of a job. People have their reasons.

But on the other hand, if you're one of the morons in the world who get as many credit cards as they can, buy as much shit as they can, remodel their house, buy a car, a boat, new clothes, then file bankruptcy to get it all written off, you should go to jail for fraud.

There are some really stoooooopid people in this world:
  • We, the people, are tired of having our schools invaded by psychotic youngsters.
  • We, the people, are tired of being robbed of our political leaders by some psychotic with a gun or a rifle.
  • We, the people, are tired of passing through metal detectors on our way to our courts and our governmental buildings.
  • We, the people, are tired of being victimized by gun carrying criminals.
Let me add my own statement:
"We the people are too fucking stupid to realize that it is psychotics and criminals causing these problems, not the implement they are holding in their hand."

Take note here how several times they pointed out that it was psychotics and criminals performing these actions. Now substitute the word gun in any those sentences with any weapon of your choice, and the statements would be just as strong, but it would still be people causing the problem and not the weapon.

Martini 101

True martini nirvana consists of three distinct layers. The top layer is mostly aromatic, and comes from the oils from a twist of lemon peel. The oils float upon the middle layer, which is the gin/vermouth/water mixture. The bottom, and final layer is the domain of the olive. The olive adds a positive tactile experience with its smooth skin and chewy texture. But the flavor, especially the saltiness, is important too.

The large surface area at the top of the martini glass allows the lemon oil to dissipate in a very thin layer across the surface of the liquid. It also helps to promote perception of the lemon oil, as it forces the drinker’s nose to be centered over the glass. It also serves as a “trap’ to contain as the volatile aroma, and exclude outside air currents.

The small cone at the bottom of the glass holds the olive in place. Brine from the olive leaches into the martini liquid over time. The brine is heavier than the martini liquid, and the cone shape contains the brine flavored liquid in the bottom of the glass, so that it may be enjoyed last.

To maximize the contrast between the layers, it is best to follow a certain construction method. First, mix the liquids as described earlier, and strain into the glass. Then drop in the olive. If the olive is added first, the splashing of the liquid over it can disperse the brine throughout the drink. After the olive has been added, the lemon peel is twisted above the surface of the liquid, and the spray is allowed to settle on the surface. The peel is thrown away.

The experience of the transitions between layers is not exactly binary. But it can be fun experimenting with your construction (and drinking) process, trying to keep the transition region as distinct as humanly possible.

One of the great joys of true martini nirvana is in experiencing the change in flavors, textures, and aromas as one moves between the layers.

The lemony hit is strong at first, and the oily mixture is bitter sweet. As the lemon oil is consumed, the martini mid-range is entered. Here, you’ll observe mostly pure gin/vermouth flavor, with an occasional remembrance of lemon, and maybe a tease of salt and olive aroma that hints at what’s to come. As the end approaches, the olive flavor becomes more intense, and the texture more robust. Finally, the glass is tipped, and the olive is consumed. The chewing sensation and the burst of salty brine serves as a climactic ending to the experience, while your entire mouth is left a bit parched and puckered. In other words, perfectly primed for another…."

So the mayor of Las Vegas goes to reading week at the local elementary school:
Mayor endorses gin to fourth graders

School officials say Goodman's remarks were inappropriate

School officials say Goodman's remarks were inappropriate
Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman told a group of fourth graders on Monday that if he was marooned on a desert island the one thing he would want to have with him is a bottle of gin.

And when a student quizzed Goodman about his hobbies he replied that "drinking" was one of them, said Mackey Elementary School Principal Kamala Washington, who was present for the mayor's visit.
Uh-oh. That'll get him some trouble.
Goodman was unapologetic for his comments that came during his visit to the elementary school in North Las Vegas.

"I'm the George Washington of mayors. I can't tell a lie. If they didn't want the answer the kid shouldn't have asked the question," Goodman said. "It's me, what can I do?"
He's well know around here for tipping a glass or two.
But even worse than the PTA, school board, angry parents, ...
Goodman said the comments did get him in trouble at home though.

"My wife wanted me to say her," Goodman said about what he would bring to a desert island.
Oh well. Can you blame him?
Quips about drinking and drinking gin are commonplace in Goodman's public appearances, although usually those are in front of older audiences.

The mayor is particularly fond of gin martinis and became a pitchman for Bombay Sapphire gin in late 2002.
Hmm. I don't think he'll be making many more stops at schools.

Once Again, I've Missed Out

I never had teachers like this when I was in high school:
Teacher Has Sex with Pupil While Baby in Car: Cops:
"A California high school teacher was arraigned on Monday at a Sacramento court accused of having sex with a student in a car as her two-year child was strapped into the back seat.
'They found them to be partially clothed and engaging in what appeared to be sexual intercourse.'
Now, most people would think that there are a couple stories here. First we have the teacher giving the sixteen year old kid a real education. [wink]
Then we have the story of the teachers' kid in the back seat, who is also getting an education [wink]. (Not that the kid is going to remember any of this in a few years anyway.)
But the real story here is, knowing how careless kids are these days, the teen was probably looking right into the eyes of the kid as he was bouncing around on the teacher and not even thinking about the fact that what he was doing would make another one just like it.

Then again, maybe he wasn't skin diving. Maybe he had a wet suit on.

"There's more evidence that overindulging in drink can have very serious consequences: A new study finds drinkers are three times more likely to die from injury as non-drinkers or former drinkers."
Again I say, this took a study? One trip to the emergency room or police station on any given holiday weekend would have given you all the obvious information they needed.

'The last thing he said was "Here. Hold My Beer."'

Chris Rock at the Oscars

Transcript: Chris Rocks Comments on President Bush at the Oscars:

"Now I watched Fahrenheit, I learned some stuff man. Bush did some things you could never get away with at your job, man. Never, ever, ever."
Just goes to show how stupid hollyweirdos are. He learned some stuff? From a goddamn movie? Uhhhh Chris, did you forget something here? You're hollywood, the movie is hollywood, it wasn't real. It wasn't a documentary. It was a movie.

Besides, The Oscars ain't what I would consider a political rally. It's a fucking show-and-tell. A "Look At Me" day.
Dress up in stupid shit you wouldn't wear any other time, rent expensive bling-bling to wear once, prance around a little to look and act important and "be seen", say stupid bogus shit about someone you really don't give a fuck about, and hope you get a reward for it all.

Now who in their right mind would really expect to get a dose of truth and enlightenment from that bullshit?

What a fool.

Given A Different Context This Would Have Been A Hoot

From Reuters:
Tapes of Bush Chat Turned Over to Bush Lawyer:

"Wead was an old friend ..."

Wead not weed, you dope smoking dummy.
At least I humor myself sometimes.

This Is Just Getting Too Stupid

Lighters to be banned on airline flights:
"Airline passengers will have to ditch their lighters or lose them to airport security screeners when a new ban on lighters takes effect in April."
Soon, you will no longer be able to carry pencils on a plane, because rubbing two sticks together can start a fire. Any bad guy who really wants to can explode a bomb. You can use a battery and steel wool to light a fire. Those are still legal carry-on items.
I think they should concentrate more on finding the bombs rather than banning everything hey can think of.
Maybe it's a plot - the government is trying to shut down all the airlines by driving away all the passengers, so they don't have to keep shelling out money to keep them in business and bail them out of bankruptcy.

Another Hostage Pleading For Their Life

From Reuters:
French Hostage in Iraq Pleads for Help
Kidnapped French journalist Florence Aubenas, taken hostage with her driver in Baghdad more than seven weeks ago, made a desperate appeal for help in a video tape released by Iraqi insurgents Tuesday.

"I ask particularly for the help of the French deputy Didier Julia. Help me Mr. Julia, help me. It's urgent," she said
"Oh Fra-aance. Where are yooouuuuu?! Anybody home?"
