  • Heavy Snowfall Causes ‘Moose Emergency’ in Alaska

    National Post ^ | Feb 1, 2012
    Heavy snows in parts of Alaska are taking a deadly toll on moose as deep snowdrifts force the animals into hazardous detours on plowed roads and railroad tracks, prompting one group to seek declaration of a “moose emergency.” State and local officials said the ambling animals are being killed in increasing numbers in rail and road collisions. In the Matanuska-Susitna Borough north of Anchorage, 315 moose have been killed in vehicle so far this winter, said Tim Peltier, a biologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game. The average is roughly 270 for the winter, he said. The state-owned...

    First, turn on your speakers, or headphones. Then click this, to set the right mood:     Okay, is it playing? Good….                 Do any of you remember when I said my last girlfriend, turned me off of love forever? Well, go figure. Last night I met the love of my life. She and I will have beautiful times together. Tender, private moments. Moments of hilarity. Special times. We will take pictures together. We will go places together. Eventually, we will become as one. Here’s her picture: Her name is Egg Bacon...

    <p>Thank you, FR, for the truly marvelous entertainment (as I haven't been laid in so long I get no other entertainment other than watching people on here like a perv stalker) . While lurking tonight (the internet version of peeping in your windows) for the first time in ages, the amount of schadenfreude I'm experiencing is bordering on orgasmic (which is the closest I've gotten to the real thing in years).</p>
  • Pat Buchanan: Reagan White House saw Newt as ‘something of a political opportunist’

    Over the last week, several people that worked in the Reagan administration have come forward and countered former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s claim that he is a “Reagan Republican.” These people say Gingrich “wasn’t on board with a lot of what President Ronald Reagan tried to accomplish during his two terms.” And although that claim has been disputed by other Reagan administration officials, former Reagan communications director Pat Buchanan told “The McLaughlin Group” this weekend that Gingrich wasn’t seen favorably by those in the administration. “[I]n the Reagan White House, Newt Gingrich was considered quite frankly by a lot of...

    National Review ^ | January 25, 2012 4:00 A.M. | Elliot Abrams
    In the increasingly rough Republican campaign, no candidate has wrapped himself in the mantle of Ronald Reagan more often than Newt Gingrich. “I worked with President Reagan to change things in Washington,” “we helped defeat the Soviet empire,” and “I helped lead the effort to defeat Communism in the Congress” are typical claims by the former speaker of the House. The claims are misleading at best. In the Reagan years I was an assistant secretary of state — Mr. Gingrich voted with the president regularly, but equally often spewed insulting rhetoric at Reagan, his top aides, and his policies to...
  • If You See a Bigfoot, Should You Shoot Him?

    MSNBC ^ | 1/23/2012
    In the new Animal Planet reality TV show optimistically titled "Finding Bigfoot," a team of experts examines video of an alleged Sasquatch spotted in the Canadian Rockies. The video, shot by a man named Todd Standing, shows something large and dark, standing atop a wooded ridge and then ducking back behind a bush. It could pretty much be anything, and when the experts concluded that the subject was probably not a Bigfoot, Standing expressed his frustration: "No video is ever going to be evidence, ever. It's never going to be good enough…" Standing, like many Bigfoot researchers, misses the problem:...

    Has anyone noticed that rats and Occupy Protestors have some sort of linkage? I mean a spiritual bridge or karmic connection. Really. I didn't see it until I was exposed to some of the news stories; you know the ones I mean. “Rat population has ‘exploded’ around Occupy D.C. Camps” Washington Post 1-9-12. This link seems to have influenced DC so much that rats must now be relocated rather than killed; almost as if they were actual Occupy Protesters. Anyway that caused me to muse to my self – what are the similarities and differences between Rats and Occupy Protesters...

    JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Going to the bathroom will never be the same for one local woman, not since she was bitten by a water moccasin who was apparently hiding in her toilet. Alicia Bailey spent three days in the hospital. She's now at home but she's not resting comfortably. She remembers what happened the night she got up to go to the bathroom. "Walked in (to the bathroom) opened up the lid to the toilet and got bit by the water moccasin on the leg." She was bitten once on the thigh, and given the size of the bite on...

    ORANGEBURG, S.C. — Newt Gingrich on Friday backed at least a portion of the Dream Act, saying that he would grant a path to citizenship to illegal immigrant youths who agree to sign up and serve in the U.S. military. That’s a much tighter standard than the full Dream Act, which President Obama wants. That legislation would allow legal status and an eventual path to citizenship for children and young adults who join the military, but would also apply to those who go to college — a much broader class of people. “I am opposed to anybody who came here...

    What does the cheeseburger say about our modern food economy? A lot, actually. Over the past several years blogger Waldo Jaquith ( set out to make a cheeseburger from scratch, to no avail. “Further reflection revealed that it’s quite impractical—nearly impossible—to make a cheeseburger from scratch,” he writes. “Tomatoes are in season in the late summer. Lettuce is in season in spring and fall. Large mammals are slaughtered in early winter. The process of making such a burger would take nearly a year and would inherently involve omitting some core cheeseburger ingredients. It would be wildly expensive—requiring a trio of...
