Grumpy old man claims global warming is a hoax

Here's an amusing / frustrating video of Weather Channel founder John Coleman trying his best to blast global warming. He's concerned about how 'upset' people are, as though being worried about the environment is slowly killing people's souls. He also believes things are just fine, and there is no need for concern. It seems his biggest proof is simply that the polar icecaps are not going to melt, despite cl ...

Mugabe claims cholera outbreak is contained

Zimbabwe is in trouble. Not only is the country suffering from hyper inflation (they printed a 50 billion dollar note a few months ago), but it's also in the grips of an epidemic of cholera. The World Health Organization estimates roughly 15,000 people are infected, and 700 have already died. The outbreak is leading many to flee to South Africa, but they in turn are not quarantining any of the refugees, whi ...

I knew it, Christmas IS evil!

More on the War on Christmas, and this time, it's not coming from us filthy atheists. Anjem Choudary is a Muslim chairman for the Society of Muslim Lawyers, and preaches on the corrupt influence Christmas apparently has on Muslims. Now it's one thing to dislike a holiday, but it's another entirely to decree yuletide festivities are a 'pathway to hellfire'. You gotta love these brimstone and hellfire guys. T ...

Prohibition anniversary goes mostly unnoticed

December 5th is not a special day for most, but it does mark the 75th anniversary of the repeal of the 18th Amendment, which constitutionally prohibited the purchase, manufacture, and distribution of alcohol. The 25th Amendment was created specifically to invalidate it, and serves no other real purpose in the Constitution. The 75 years is more symbolic than anything else, since many states did not ratify th ...

In GOP we trust

I must have been asleep the last few days, because I could have sworn the US was facing one of the worst financial crisis in its history, accompanied by two wars that are not going very swimmingly. It must be all fixed, since a group of Senators are busy trying to have the motto "In God We Trust" posted in the new Capital Visitor Center in Washington. The building is your classic boondoggle; it cost 3 times ...

Misleading title: Osama Bin Lego

As a kid, I loved my Lego collection. I find the whole idea behind those little blocks to be pure genius. It stimulates creativity, and it also makes up for the fact that when you don't get a lot of presents each year you can at least build your own. So it doesn't surprise me at all when someone tries to capitalize on my nostalgia for a few bucks. Enter this little fellow, who is an obvious cheap attempt to ...

Custom officials found explosives hidden in his spare tire, and more bomb making materials in his apartment in Montreal, Quebec. He was subsequently interrogated, and in return for a lighter sentence, Ressam would reveal the existence of a complex sleeper cell network to investigators, eventually leading to ...

Shocker: scientists are not getting laid

An Australian study found that men who study science in University are less likely to get laid. It found science 'nerds' were more likely to be doing homework and far less likely to go to parties and bars. As a general rule, I hate garbage studies that only reinforce the stereotype science is somehow unhip, uncool, and something only nerds do. I'm sure there's a similar correlation between level of educatio ...
