There is an upside to Paris

Hilton, that is. Word is, Barron Hilton, patriarch of the Hilton family, has been so embarrassed by his granddaughter's antics, that he decided to give 97% of his fortune to charity on his passing. To clean up the family name, no doubt.

I believe future beneficiaries of Hilton's philanthropy owe Paris a debt of gratitude. And no, you dont have to boink her to show your appreciation.

Dear Benny

Ahhhhh... tis indeed the season

Love, peace, and all that, reigns in this season of brotherhood, especially among those who chose to follow the path of Christ and the apostles.

blind arnis

pfffshhh. really?

I had 2 cameras stolen in 2007: my Olympus FE100 digicam and my OM2n. Long story. I loved the super-macro function of the relatively low-tech 4 megapixel FE100 which was a bit quirky at times -- the software sometimes focused on the wrong thing -- but when it's on, it's on. I had lots of plans for the OM2n: buying it a new flash, a wide-angle lens, and a 135 mm lens but that's over now. I hope it found a new owner who knows how to use it.

What I have left are my Olympus XA2 which is in its final stages of usefulness since its shutter is starting to go, and a previously owned Canon IXY 450 4 megapixel digital camera. Four megapixels is more than enough for decent photos. According to professional photographer Ken Rockwell, a 3 MP camera pretty much looks the same as a 6 MP camera, even when blown up to 12 x 18. All those megapixels camera companies are dumping onto their cameras are just a ploy to make the average consumer think that theyre getting a better camera, and so charge them more. For the average photographer who won't plan on getting prints larger than A4 size, 4 megapixels is plenty. More isnt better.

Here are a few pictures I took with my clunkers. Happy New Year.

Yep, Christmas spirit allright...

Bah, humbug.

Muslim kid saves Jewish kids from beating by thugs in the Christmas mood.
He was mystified as to why the men became so outraged when the women
and their male friends wished them a "Happy Chanukah" while they were
yelling "Merry Christmas" on the train car.
Well, it's Jesus' birthday so we celebrate it the best way we can. By beating up Jews and Muslims. Halleluiah! You want some? Come git some!
"That a random Muslim kid helped some Jewish kids, that's what's
positive about New York," said Adler, 23, who suffered a broken nose
and required four stitches to close a lip wound.

well, duh.
for those who can't hold their alcohol
oh shit.

what drinking problem??
now that's customer service.


Or is "May you rest in peace" more appropriate?

Be careful out there. This is serious shit.
Gilbert alerted state health officials, a decision that led
investigators to realize that a new, apparently more virulent form of a
virus that usually causes nothing worse than a nasty cold was
circulating around the United States. At least 1,035 Americans in four
states have been infected so far this year by the virus, known as an
adenovirus. Dozens have been hospitalized, many requiring intensive
care, and at least 10 have died.

Da Vinci code

It seems that Leonardo's secret is really the fact that he's, no, not gay, that's not a secret, but his secret is really the fact that he's... an Arab.
Professor Luigi Capasso, an anthropologist who led the team, said the
central whorl of the [Leo's] fingerprint was a common pattern in the Middle

"Around 60 per cent of the Middle Eastern population have the same structure," he said.
What a twist this puts in the whole Priory of Sion thing if Leonardo were really a Semite (Arab or Hebrew)! I can see Dan Brown frantically taking notes for a sequel. (And Dan? Da Vinci isnt his family name. So technically, The Da Vinci Code is a stupid title. Every person born in Vinci at the time can call himself da Vinci. So if it isnt too late, call the sequel The Leonardo Code. Ok?)

An Office

forget The Office, watch An Office instead.

Raising kids

I totally agree with this Scientific American article. Parents who keep harping on how special their kids are almost always end up raising obnoxious kids.


You just can't trust them. Looks like the National Geographic has been taking... liberties... with their scholars' translation of the so-called Gospel of Judas. Tut-tut. [wags finger]
Several of the translation choices made by the society’s scholars fall
well outside the commonly accepted practices in the field. For example,
in one instance the National Geographic transcription refers to Judas
as a “daimon,” which the society’s experts have translated as “spirit.”
Actually, the universally accepted word for “spirit” is “pneuma ” — in
Gnostic literature “daimon” is always taken to mean “demon.”

Stay together and save the planet...

... or in other words, HAHAHAHAHA!!!
Scientists have quantified for the first time the extent to which divorce damages the environment. The researchers found that the combined use of electricity across the two new households created rose 53% while water use was up by 42%.
This is serious research, folks.

And in the You Just Can't Win department, banning smoking in pubs and restaurants will one day kill us all.

Pubs are likely to pump hundreds of thousands of tons
of additional carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as a result of the
smoking ban.Policy advisers predict that
emissions from patio heaters in pubs and restaurants will increase from
22,200 tons of greenhouse gases a year to up to 282,000 tons - the
equivalent of flying a jumbo jet 171 times around the Earth.

Rudy should have just stayed home

your ass is theirs

that's it ... Jack Bauer- and Sam Fisher-types will kidnap you in the dead of night, even if you're vacationing in Phuket or sleeping in Puerto Galera, if you are wanted for crimes in the U.S. i don't think they limit their scope to Brits.
