  • Obama Motorcade Gets The Finger

    White House Dossier ^ | 5/18/14 | Keith Koffler
    A motorist driving along I-66 in Washington gave President Obama’s motorcade the finger Saturday. It’s unclear if the president gave the driver the finger right back. Rumors that the driver was Solange Knowles could not be confirmed. From the White House pool report: Poolster observed one motorist on I-66 from DC extend his middle finger at the motorcade, but unable to tell if said motorist knew who was in the motorcade, or just didn’t like being passed. Well, I assure you, anyone if the Washington area with a car knows who is generally in a big motorcade. Unless it was...

    Take a moment and look at your hands. Specifically, compare the length of your ring finger to the one you use to point. Is the ring finger longer or shorter than your pointer, and by how much? It turns out that the answer to that question can tell a lot about your mental abilities and appetite for risk. As ConvergEx's Nick Colas details, a 2009 study of mostly male traders working in London found that the ones with longer ring fingers were generally more profitable than those with shorter ones. Traders with the largest fourth finger/second (pointer) finger ratios actually...

    Times of Israel ^ | 4/8/14 | Marissa Newman
    Rather than make bold decisions conducive to peace, the government continues to “give the US the finger” with regard to talks with the Palestinians, Meretz MK Zahava Gal-on charged on Tuesday, reacting to statements by Secretary of State John Kerry that ascribed much of the blame for the present impasse to Israel. Kerry’s statements “are further proof that the extreme rightist… coalition has no interests in reaching an agreement, but rather is dragging out the negotiations and endangering Israel’s existential interests,” she said. “Instead of making courageous decisions, this bad government continued to give the US the finger,” she added....

    Jake Owen has lost part of his right ring finger after sustaining serious injuries in an accident last month. The accident took place over July 4 weekend, while Owen was racing go-karts against Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer — both of whom are professional NASCAR drivers. He was wearing protective gear, but sustained a very serious hand injury despite his gloves. He had to have surgery just days later. “I shattered my fingers — the bones inside,” Owen said. “The doctor said it was like taking a cinderblock and dropping it on your hand. Like it spider webbed the bones...

Kinda the shotgun approach to get his opinion on as much as possible in 15 minutes – and it’s a great interview. But as far as gun control, West believes that it just won’t fly with the American people and he doesn’t believe that Obama has the populous mandate that he things he has. West says we’re not talking about the real issues anyway, we’re just talking about a political agenda:

    A Dad had his finger bitten off in a fight — at a school nativity play. Parents waiting excitedly for their kids' Christmas performance were horrified as another father stormed into the primary school hall and launched himself at the victim. They wrestled for a few moments until one dad screamed as the other latched his teeth on to his finger. The attacker then bit through the digit before "spitting blood out like an animal". Teachers pulled the pair apart. The pupils, aged five to 11, were preparing in another part of the school — Harton Primary, in South Shields,...

    MOSCOW, - A Russian TV station said it has dismissed a news anchor for flipping the bird while reading an item about U.S. President Barack Obama. REN TV said it dismissed anchor Tatiana Limanova after she made the obscene gesture while saying the president's name during a Nov. 14 story about the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation conference, RIA Novosti reported Thursday. However, officials with the TV station said Limanova's gesture was not aimed at Obama but rather at "editorial staff" colleagues who were attempting to distract her from off-camera. "This does not diminish her guilt and cannot be considered an...

The only odd thing to note, however, is that Limanova says Obama’s name while simultaneously showing her middle finger.

But even with the mangled digit, Marion has no plans to get the injury fixed. He can’t even remember when it occurred. “It doesn’t hurt; maybe if I bend it a certain way or something [it hurts],” Marion told ESPN Dallas as he bent and pulled and squished his pinkie as if it was made of rubber. “I got full rotation. The doctor’s like, ‘What are you going to do?’...

    PARIS (AFP) – Men whose index fingers are longer than their ring, or fourth, fingers run a significantly lower risk of prostate cancer, according to a study published Wednesday in the British Journal of Cancer. The chances of developing the disease drop by a third, and even more in younger men, the study found. "Our results show that relative finger length could be used as a simple test for prostate cancer risk, particularly in men aged under 60," said Ros Eeles, a professor at the Institute of Cancer Research in Britain and co-author of the study.

    Jon Stewart has met the enemy, and it's the media. The Comedy Central comedian and "Daily Show" host walked a fine line between politics and humor Saturday as he gathered tens of thousands on the National Mall for his "Rally to Restore Sanity." Expectations for what Stewart had dubbed his "million moderate march" ranged from the hope of left-leaning groups that the rally would spark the youth vote ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections to the desire for many attendees to enjoy an afternoon of pointed satire inspired by Fox News' Glenn Beck's massive rally two months ago to "restore honor."...

Few will fault President Barack Obama directly for their party’s plight heading into the fall midterm elections, but the chief executives gathered here for the National Governors Association (NGA) meeting believe the Congress and White House have made an already difficult year worse. While almost uniformly grateful for the financial windfall they enjoyed from the stimulus legislation, the Democrats believe it wasn’t sold well to the public and more still...

Lillian Beasley, 43, was charged with malicious wounding, trespassing and using profane language after a confrontation in March in which police say she bit another woman's finger until she almost severed it. At her appearance in General District Court on Monday, her trial was continued after a psychiatrist said she was unable to assist in mounting a defense. The case will be re-evaluated in November.

    Research at the universities of Liverpool and Oxford into the finger length of primate species has revealed that cooperative behavior is linked to exposure to hormone levels in the womb. The hormones, called androgens, are important in the development of masculine characteristics such as aggression and strength. It is also thought that prenatal androgens affect finger length during development in the womb. High levels of androgens, such as testosterone, increase the length of the fourth finger in comparison to the second finger. Scientists used finger ratios as an indicator of the levels of exposure to the hormone and compared this...

A witness from the scene says a man was walking through the anti-reform group to get to the pro-reform side when he got into an altercation with the 65-year-old, who opposes health care reform. The 65-year-old was apparently aggressive and hit the other man, who then retaliated by biting off his attacker's pinky

    Bird wings clearly share ancestry with dinosaur "hands" or forelimbs. A school kid can see it in the bones. But paleontologists have long struggled to explain the so-called digit dilemma. Here's the problem: The most primitive dinosaurs in the famous theropod group (that later included Tyrannosaurus rex) had five "fingers." Later theropods had three, just like the birds that evolved from them. But which digits? The theropod and bird digits failed to match up if you number the digits from 1 to 5 starting with the thumb. Theropods looked like they had digits 1, 2 and 3, while birds have...

As 55-year-old Blaszkiewitz was giving a tour through the zoo on Monday, he stopped at Pedro...
