  • Fifty Awful Things About The Moderators

    Admin Moderator ^ | Admin Moderator
    There are many moderators, with different kinds of secret knowledge. Anything you might say about them (including this) will be false for some of the Moderators, but true for others, which only adds to the confusion and mystery. The Moderators infiltrate and take over cliques of all kinds, from drug warriors to libertarians to chatters, and turn them to their own ends. And, just as a black joke, some of their secret cliques advertise themselves as Secret Cliques. They have agents and "sleepers" planted everywhere. Many of these people have no idea who they are really reporting to. Others are...

    One of usually peaceful springtime rituals of childhood — the Easter egg hunt — turned nasty at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. Blame the moms. A statement on the Seattle Police Department blotter Monday says the "hard-boiled tale" began Sunday afternoon, "when one woman reportedly pushed a child aside as her own child was scrambling toward some brightly colored eggs."

    Reuters ^ | Dec 23, 2009 | JoAnne Allen
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Tidal forces parallel to a segment of the San Andreas Fault in central California may be causing non-volcanic tremors that could help predict earthquakes, researchers said on Wednesday. Low-level tremors have long been associated with volcanoes, because they often warn of impending eruptions. A study published in the journal Nature says these tremors beneath the San Andreas Fault could provide similar clues about earthquakes. The researchers say the faint tug of the sun and the moon on the fault causes tremors well below the level where earthquakes occur. The finding suggests that rock far underground is lubricated...

Followed by an array of PC protected classes such as, "as a women, or "as a person of color" or "as a single mother",etc. Most of the time after "As a" comes "I was offended by". The jest of their point is always the same, (I don't like what your saying, their will be no debate, shut up!) and they do it alot & get away with it. I'm sick of the "As a's". Am I wrong?

    Man accused of shoving phone down throat 2 hours, 56 minutes ago INDEPENDENCE, Mo. - The assault trial of a man accused of shoving a cell phone down a woman's throat has begun. Prosecutors say 24-year-old Marlon Brando Gill was angry and jealous when he forced the phone into Melinda Abell's throat in December. But defense attorneys insist the 25-year-old victim swallowed the phone intentionally to prevent Gill from finding out who she'd been calling. Gill is charged with felony first-degree assault. A doctor at a Kansas City hospital's emergency room used a tool called a "pincher" to remove the...

He then accidentally knocked one of the hob controls, turning on one of the rings, before going out to meet friends. The heated ring set fire to the basket of clothes which, in turn, heated a...

    Promoting a Culture of Death I've noticed, over the past year or two, that numerous fictional dramas, especially cop/crime shows, use one of the following words, as the last word you hear, just before going to the commercials: dead, death, killed, killer, murder, murdered; basically any word related to death. And it's not limited to crime dramas. I've seen it done in sitcoms, comedic romantic movies; the phenomenon is across the board. It is so prevelant that there is no way it is coincidental.

    Inspired by fringe beliefs that invasive radio signals can probe a citizens' thoughts and that wearing foil on your head may fend them off, an experiment by four Ph.D candidates found that certain frequencies-owned by the Feds naturally-are actually enhanced by such "protection." Overall, the foil effectively weakend radio waves by up to 10 decibels over most of the frequency spectrum (there were no significant differences among helmet shapes). But at 1.2 and 2.6 GHz-which fall within the band reserved for government satellites, GPS systems and mobile-phone corporations-passage through the foil amplified these waves by 20-30 decibels.

Hasselhoff was already a megastar in Europe, but he felt that he needed to kick off the release of his album with a bang. So, you know what he did? He got himself a damned blue screen and made perhaps the greatest music video EVER. And I don’t throw that phrase around often people. Only for something epic like this.

    It's no joke. Last Thursday, President Bush signed into law a prohibition on posting annoying Web messages or sending annoying e-mail messages without disclosing your true identity. In other words, it's OK to flame someone on a mailing list or in a blog as long as you do it under your real name. Thank Congress for small favors, I guess. This ridiculous prohibition, which would likely imperil much of Usenet, is buried in the so-called Violence Against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act. Criminal penalties include stiff fines and two years in prison.

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short.

    One of the greatest female dilemmas - does my bum look big in this? - will be answered by a team of researchers. Scientists in Scotland are launching what may be the world's first study into how clothing can affect the appearance of the female derriere. Female volunteers wearing hundreds of different types of clothing will have their bottoms photographed for the research. And in what is most girl’s worst nightmare, participants will then be asked to look at the pictures to assess how big or small each model's backside appears.

That's when the couple discovered a tiny screech owl in the tree. The couple called the sanctuary's rescue squad. But the story wasn't very interesting until Melissa Dolinsky began assessing the owl's health. "I kept smelling him and smelling him going, 'What is...
