Trayvon Martin's Mother Files Paternity Action Against Obama Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin, the teen who was shot and killed by a self-appointed neighborhood security guard, has filed a paternity action against President Obama, seeking back child support for the 17 years of Trayvon's abbreviated life.
Fulton filed the claim after President Obama admitted, "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon."
Fulton explained, "I'd noticed the resemblance as well. So it really struck me when Barack mentioned it, too." Fulton stated that while she is not entirely certain that Obama is Trayvon's father, the statistical possibility is such that a paternity test is warranted.
Some have characterized Fulton's lawsuit as a transparent ploy to tap into President Obama's financial assets, while others consider the claim a justifiable attempt to bring new zeal to police's thus-far lackluster efforts to apprehend Trayvon's killer, George Zimmerman. President Obama has neither confirmed nor denied the claims.
Problem with this is that Romans never had war chariots.
Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner.
I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it.
Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn't say much.
I asked him what was wrong; He said, 'Nothing..' I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset He said he wasn't upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it.
On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior. I don't know why he didn't say, 'I love you, too.'
When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore.
He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent. Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed. About 15 minutes later, he came to bed.
But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep; I cried. I don't know what to do. I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.
A five putt ...how in hell can someone FIVE PUTT?
“Problem with this is that Romans never had war chariots.”
Correct. They only used them for racing and as a mode of transportation, especially in processions.
They did use carts and wagons, and something similar to a carriage.
They ran into war chariots when they invaded Britain, but after a little confusion the Roman showed why chariots were obsolete everywhere else.
A Mexican maid decides one day she needs a pay raise and asks the lady of the house for one.
“Why should I give you a raise?” the lady of the house asks. “Give me a good reason why.”
The maid replies, “I can give you three reasons, Senora. First of all, I iron better than you do.”
“What makes you think you iron better than I do?” asks the lady.
“Your husband says so,” replies the maid.
“Okay, what’s your second reason?”
“I am a better cook than you.”
“That’s preposterous! What makes you say that?”
“That’s what your husband tells me.”
“All right. What’s your third reason?”
“I’m a better lover than you.”
The lady pauses for several minutes, then she finally says, “I suppose my husband told you that too, didn’t he?”
“Oh, no, Senora! The gardener did.”
Not only that, but, they built paved roads so that there wouldn’t be any ruts.
AMAZINGLY SIMPLE HOME REMEDIES (That Really Work!)
1. AVOID CUTTING YOURSELF WHEN SLICING VEGETABLES BY GETTING SOMEONE ELSE TO HOLD THE VEGETABLES WHILE YOU SLICE.
2. AVOID ARGUMENTS WITH THE FEMALES ABOUT LIFTING THE TOILET SEAT BY USING THE SINK.
3. FOR HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE SUFFERERS ~ SIMPLY CUT YOURSELF AND BLEED FOR A FEW MINUTES, THUS REDUCING THE PRESSURE ON YOUR VEINS. REMEMBER TO USE A TIMER.
4. A MOUSE TRAP PLACED ON TOP OF YOUR ALARM CLOCK WILL PREVENT YOU FROM ROLLING OVER AND GOING BACK TO SLEEP AFTER YOU HIT THE SNOOZE BUTTON.
5. IF YOU HAVE A BAD COUGH, TAKE A LARGE DOSE OF LAXATIVES. THEN YOU’LL BE AFRAID TO COUGH.
6. YOU ONLY NEED TWO TOOLS IN LIFE - WD-40 AND DUCT TAPE. IF IT DOESN’T MOVE AND SHOULD, USE THE WD-40. IF IT SHOULDN’T MOVE AND DOES, USE THE DUCT TAPE.
7. IF YOU CAN’T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU’VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.
The paved roads did have wheel ruts and all wheels had to have the same spacing. Look at this picture from Pompeii.
Reasonably good explanation here.
Has primarily to do with the fact that similar problems tend to be solved in similar ways. Also that people tend to keep using basic solutions even after they’ve lost their rationale for doing so.
As Snopes points out, there have been many railroad gauges used around the world, and even in the USA. Standard gauge has something over half the total.
Osama Bin Laden was living with 3 wives in one compound, and never left the house for 5 years.
It is now believed he may have called the Navy Seals himself!
An elderly lady was walking on the golf course on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. She slipped and fell.
Obama who was behind her by chance, helped her to get up promptly. She thanked him and he answered,
“It was a pleasure to help you. Don’t you recognize me? I am your president. Are you going to vote for me in the next election? “
The elderly woman laughed and replied:
‘’You know ... I fell on my ass ... not on my head......
Isn’t it ironic....
The United States food stamp program, administered by the Department of Agriculture, seems pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever.
Meanwhile, the National Park Service, asks us to “please do not feed the animals” because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves.
