    The NFL might have seen its last bit of Tebowing. A new report claims that some of those closest to Tim Tebow have suggested that the unemployed quarterback’s NFL career is likely done. ESPN’s David Fleming reports that members of Tebow’s own camp privately told him that his days in the league are “probably over.”

    You can argue all you want whether ObamaCare puts into place “death panels” or not. What we can all agree on is that ObamaCare has provisions which allow a government review board to decide if you receive treatment or not based on your “need”. The existence of this review board is not in question. Thousands of pages have been written on this subject both pro and con, and these arguments have established two basic ways of looking at this process. One side is straight logistics and economics: Implementing this kind of healthcare on a massive scale can never be cost...

    THE FREEHOLD ^ | 04/30/2013 | JONATHAN DAVID BAIRD
    I am constantly seeing the same idea repeated in every blog I read, on every site I visit, and in many personal conversations. Libertarian minded people are pushing the idea that someone should never get a graduate degree in liberal arts or even attend college at all if possible. If a person does get a degree it should be in the hard sciences or they should go to a trade school. I for the most part agree with the reasoning behind this. In fact I think that Aaron Clarey makes a very valid point over and over again on his...
  • MEPs to vote on EU 'ban on all forms of pornography'

    The Telegraph ^ | 03/08/2013 | Bruno Waterfield
    Controversy has erupted over next Tuesday's European Parliament resolution "on eliminating gender stereotypes in the EU", meant to mark international women's day, after libertarian Swedish MEPs from the Pirate Party spotted the call for a ban in the small print. While not legally binding, the vote could be the first step towards European legislation as the EU's assembly increasingly flexes its political muscle within Europe's institutions.

    Jeremy Clarkson, the oft-offensive co-host of the long-running BBC car show "Top Gear," has frequently sacrificed his bod and critical sphincter control for the show's various challenges and stunts. Here we see Clarkson behind the wheel of the "smallest car in the world," a fully street-legal vehicle allegedly designed by Clarkson himself. Apart from looking hilarious, there are a variety of downsides to piloting the world's tiniest car, which Clarkson discovers in quick succession.

  • Christmas History

    12/12/2012 4:56:40 PM PST · by KevinDavis · 15 replies
    The history of Christmas dates back over 4000 years. Many of our Christmas traditions were celebrated centuries before the Christ child was born. The 12 days of Christmas, the bright fires, the yule log, the giving of gifts, carnivals (parades) with floats, carolers who sing while going from house to house, the holiday feasts, and the church processions can all be traced back to the early Mesopotamians.

    It's been in the works for a while, and now we finally know when and how we'll get to see the eagerly-anticipated Battlestar Galactica prequel Blood and Chrome. So what's up? The series will first roll out as a 10-episode web series on Machinima, broken up into 7-12 minute installments. If Machinima sound familiar, it should, as it was also home to the epic Mortal Kombat web series Legacy. The first episode goes live late this week on Friday, Nov. 9, with the rest breaking out over the next four weeks.

    European astronomers have discovered a planet with about the mass of the Earth orbiting a star in the Alpha Centauri system -- the nearest to Earth. It is also the lightest exoplanet ever discovered around a star like the Sun. The planet was detected using the HARPS instrument on the 3.6-meter telescope at ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile. The results will appear online in the journal Nature on 17 October 2012.
