1992: Northern Exposure wins EmmyI fucking loved that show! It was hilarious.
TV series Northern Exposure wins the Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series. The offbeat show, about a Manhattan doctor forced to work in a small Alaska town, consistently ranked in the Top 20 most-watched TV shows until it was cancelled in 1995.
Except the last season sorta started going downhill what with so many 'visions' and all. If you watched the show you would know what I'm talking about.

Metrosexual? Retrosexual? Menaissance? What the fuck is this all about?
These tags people in the media - be it news, fashion rags, some sort of gendered style magazines - are hanging on men to ease them into some sort of classification, for what I think is their own personal comfort or pleasure, or let's just get to the real meat here, to sell clothers, perfume, whatever.
Most fashion magazines don't hold back. You're a fag - buy these clothes.
Others appeal to the 'men' that read them a different way, making them think they're not really gay, calling them 'metrosexual', and getting them to - well, buy the same clothes and shit under a different pretense. One that makes them think they're still stylin', up-to-date, pimp, whateverthefuck the latest phrase for looking like you know how to dress yourself is, while convincing them they're not gay, they just want to look that way.
Real men don't give a fuck about this. Real men are just that - real men. They go about their day, earn their living, do the best they can, and go home to a wife or significant other, who may or may not have also been doing the same.
Depending on their job, a real man may have worn nice clothes - which may or may or may not have matched, a several hundred dollar or more suit, or maybe ratty old jeans, a T-shirt, and gloves. Whatever. Clothes don't make the man.
One way or the other, a real man don't give a shit if he is metrosexual or retrosexual. On top of that, he doesn't give a shit if other people think he is in one of those categories. In fact, most real men don't even know those categories exist.
A real man however will still open a door for a woman, and offer up his seat on the bus, in line at the resaurant or wherever. And chances are, a real woman will accept the offer. And she will be gracious about it too. If she don't, well she's a bitch. Women's Lib, Equality, whatever you want to call it, a real woman appreciates this.
And any man that lets himself be molded or stomped on that way ain't a real man to start with. There's a difference between caring about someone else and being a sissy. And it seems the sissification factor is way to prevelant these days.
I for one, have always been - for the most part - a gentleman, and will continue to be that way. I will open a door and offer up a seat. I will not read GQ, or try to buy the latest fashions. Fuck that. Nor will I give a shit what you classify me as. If you're that shallow, I don't want your company.

Justice Minister Cathy Jamieson announced laws to ban swords unless sold for legitimate reasons.
Shops selling swords will need a licence, as will businesses dealing with non-domestic knives and other bladed weapons such as machetes.
Castro receives Chavez visit :Remember this the next time you stop at 7-Eleven, and think you should fill your tank with Citgo gasoline.
2 hours, 14 minutes ago
HAVANA (Reuters) - Ailing Cuban leader Fidel Castro received a visit at his bedside from his main ally Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, the Communist Party newspaper Granma said on Monday, publishing pictures of the two men.
Just in case you didn't know it, Citgo is a product of Venezuela, wholly owned by the Venezuelan government. The president of Venezuela - Hugo Chavez - is an asshole who, as you can see, covorts with the likes of a communist dictator. Not to mention Ciny Sheehan.
Personally, I think we shouldn't be patronizing 7-Elevens at all, by virtue of them selling that gas in the first place. Franchisees don't have a choice in what gas the corporation tells them to sell, but if we didn't buy it, they wouldn't sell it.

Terror suspects planned to use liquid explosives to blow up planes:As bad as some other countries - take Great Britain for example - want to NOT be involved in some war overseas, well - like us, they are. Or - they will be. No, these morons ain't done yet.
At least some of the suspects had ties to those involved in the July 7, 2005, coordinated bombings on the London subways, a law enforcement source told U.S. News.

You may not know this but many nonliving things have a gender...
- Ziploc Bags are Male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.
- Copiers are Female, because once turned off; it takes a while to warm them up again. It's an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can wreak havoc if the wrong buttons are pushed.
- A Tire is Male, because it goes bald and it's often over-inflated.
- A Hot Air Balloon is Male, because, to get it to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under it, and of course, there's the hot air part.
- Sponges are Female, because they're soft, squeezable and retain water.
- A Web Page is Female, because it's always getting hit on.
- A Subway is Male, because it uses the same old lines to pick people up.
- An Hourglass is Female, because over time, the weight shifts to the bottom.
- A Hammer is Male , because it hasn't changed much over the last 5,000 years, but it's handy to have around.
- A Remote Control is Female. Had you fooled! You thought it'd be male , didn't you? But consider this - it gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know the right buttons to push, he keeps trying!
Thanks again delftsman.

USATODAY.com - Lohan wants to visit U.S. troops in Iraq:[My emphasis]
NEW YORK (AP) — Lindsay Lohan says she wants to go to Iraq with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and entertain American troops there.
'I've been trying to go to Iraq with Hillary Clinton for so long. Hillary was trying to work it out, but it seemed too dangerous,' the 20-year-old actress says in an interview in the September issue of Elle magazine, on newsstands Wednesday.
Lohan, whose screen credits include Freaky Friday,Mean Girls and the upcoming Georgia Rule, says she hoped to emulate Marilyn Monroe, who performed shows for about 100,000 troops stationed in Korea in 1954.
'It's so amazing seeing that one woman just going somewhere, this beautiful sex kitten, who's basically a pinup, which is what I've always aspired to be,' Lohan tells the magazine, adding that she would prepare for her trip to Iraq by taking shooting lessons with her security guard.
Okay, typical Hollywood type; out with the fairies.
Can she really be that fucking stupid? Oh, never mind. I answered my own question.
Yeah, taking shooting lessons will totally prepare you for any insurgents you could possible encounter in a war zone. The best we could hope for is her pane getting shot down on the way over. Whilst accompanied by Hillary.

Activists sued Wednesday to strike down a new city law that makes it illegal to feed homeless people in parks. The law violates free speech, free assembly and other rights, says the federal suit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada.Fuck off you dickheads. How about you feed and house them then if you're so worried about it.
Why am I so uncaring about the homeless? Aren't they just displaced people? People who have been given a bad deal? Mentally impaired? Blah blah blah?
"The shelters provide food, beds, counseling services and doctors," he [City attorney Brad Jerbic] said. "What this is doing is, it's pulling them away from services and abandoning them in these parks."Ah. There's the rub.
We do take care of our homeless. But evidently, they get a better meal elsewhere. Trouble is, after you do-gooders pack up and leave for the day, the homeless are still there.
Not that I think giving them free meals, room and board, doctor visits, ... is doing them any good in the first place.

Court nixes verdict against beer vendor:What about the part where the dumb bastard bought his own beers? Then drove drunk?
The family claimed that vendors for Philadelphia-based Aramark Corp. continued to sell beer to Daniel Lanzaro during a 1999 New York Giants game even though he was clearly drunk, and that the concessionaire fostered an atmosphere in which intoxicated patrons were able to still buy alcohol.
The vendors weren't holding him down puring beer down his throat. He did it himself.
However, the court said a new jury can consider whether other defendants previously excluded can also be held responsible in the case. Those defendants include the National Football League, two bars where Lanzaro drank after the game and a friend of Lanzaro's who drank with him on the day of the accident.Okay, let's just sue anyone and everyone we can think of. That'll fix things.

1892 Lizzie Borden took an axe . . .And the famous jingle was born:
Andrew and Abby Borden, elderly residents of Fall River, Massachusetts, are found bludgeoned to death in their home. Lying in a pool of blood on the living room couch, Andrew's face had been nearly split in two. Abby was found upstairs with her head smashed to pieces.
The Bordens, who were considerably wealthy, lived with their two unmarried daughters, Emma and Lizzie. Since Lizzie was the only other person besides the housekeeper who was present when the bodies were found, suspicion soon fell upon her.

And gave her mother forty whacks;

They - for the most part, are not pets. They are occupants.
Most cats just exist. They wait around for dinner, scratch around in a filthy box, then climb up on your lap when they want you to pet them, after they've walked all over the kitchen counters with their shit filled paws. They don't come near you when YOU want to pet them, just when THEY want to be petted.
Of course, there are cat lovers out there who will disagree, who will point out just how loving and friendly their cats are, how they make great pets, blah blah blah.
Those are the exception, and more power to you. But you can keep your stupid cat.
However, I do like cats when I see them dragging a freshly captured pigeon around, like I did this morning. I despise those creatures more than cats.

2 men who sneaked into mine found safe:The stupidity of some people just amazes me.
MAMMOTH, W.Va. - Two men who sneaked into a closed coal mine to search for scrap metal to sell were rescued after they became lost about 3,000 feet inside the mine, authorities said. Crews found Franklin Johnson, 44, and Glen Edelman, 35, Monday evening, a few hours after family members reported them missing.
They were treated at a hospital and released.
The rescuers traced them by following the fumes from a fire the two had set after their flashlight failed as they hunkered down in the mine, authorities said. An expert said they were lucky they didn't set off an explosion or suffocate themselves.
First of all, these brainiacs snuck into an abandoned mine. That's stupid enough. Why? First, there's no ventilation. They could have died from Black Damp, which is absence of oxygen. Coal absorbs oxygen as it is exposed and releases carbon dioxide, so that builds up.
Next, there's always roof fall. There has been no stabilization of the roof since the mine was closed in 1993.
Then the dumb asses lit a fire when their flashlight quit. They're lucky there was no buildup of methane, or they would have blown themselves right out of that mine. Not to mention, it was a fire. In a COAL mine. Just so you know, coal burns. Besides the entire mine catching on fire, they were once again, depriving themselves of oxygen.
I don't know how those idiots llived, but someone or something was looking out for them.
