  • Lithuanian Bartender Sets Man's Face on Fire While Making Cocktail

    07/25/2014 7:06:12 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 19 replies
    A bartender in Lithuania was making a cocktail called "Flaming Lamborghini" - but instead of the drink, she set a patron's face on fire. This footage on LiveLeak shows the dangers of drinking a dangerous cocktail of flames and liquor, with a customer suffering severe facial burns. The incident happened on July 11, according to online reports. The bartender accidentally sets the man on fire at 0:35. Some of the customers near the man helped put out the flames, and the bartender is seen handing the man a towel. According to the video description, none of the staff was able...

    President Barack Obama’s second inauguration will be book-ended with prayers from the widow of slain civil rights activist Medgar Evers and the conservative pastor of an Atlanta mega-church. The Rev. Louie Giglio, whose Passion City Church just hosted a youth-oriented event that attracted 60,000 to the Georgia Dome, will offer the benediction – a duty assigned four years ago to the Rev. Joe Lowery. The invocation will be offered by Myrlie Evers-Williams, whose husband – a field director for the NAACP – was gunned down in 1963 in the driveway of his Jackson, Miss., home. Myrlie Evers-Williams served as chairman...

    Obama’s Promoting Homosexuality was Foolish, Faulty, Final, and Fatal! Don Boys, Ph.D. President Obama committed political suicide when he climbed in bed with the homosexual crowd (figuratively, I hope). It doesn’t matter whether he was following an orchestrated script or not. The results are the same. American liberal politicians have been sniffing around this issue for many years, but now it is official, and that could be dangerous for Obama and America. God is not pleased and it is a dangerous thing to displease a sovereign, holy God! Look at Sodom! It is trite but true that God destroyed Sodom...

What many do not realize is he was also a great influence in the realm of theology.

Mr. Newton is well noted for his observation and recording of three laws of motion.

    Fools and their Speech“Ihay, I maay a oolfay nday I aysay Oolishfay ingsthay!” It sure would be nice if all people who were engaged in foolish actions or speech would automatically speak in only Pig Latin. Immediately, the choice of whether or not a man wanted to follow the lead of a fool would be obvious. Sometimes man is ignorant or deceived into foolish activities or speech, making himself guilty without informatively choosing foolishness. While still guilty of foolishness through participation, the individual would have most likely wanted to know what he was getting into beforehand. Unfortunately, foolishness is not...

However, most folks associate the word fool with a negative connotation. The Bible has much to say about fools and without hesitation it presents the foolish in a negative light. Why study fools? If the Bible frowns on the foolish, then it would behoove man to learn about fools so that they can avoid being one. The series to be embarked upon will examine foolishness in a number of categories:...

    Christina Romer, the departing chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisors, was at a complete loss of words when it came to explaining the state of the economy when she appeared at her valedictory lunch before her returns to her teaching sinecure at Berkley. Dana Milbank of the Washington Post comments: She had no idea how bad the economic collapse would be. She still doesn't understand exactly why it was so bad. The response to the collapse was inadequate. And she doesn't have much of an idea about how to fix things. What she did have was a binder...

    Conservative web journalists and radio talk show hosts are beside themselves at the stupidity of the Obama administration, and rightly so. We, too, bewail the squander of America's wealth, the weakening of her military, the traitorous, despicable mishandling of the CIA, the celebration of moral wickedness, the encroachment of constitutional liberties, the blind commitment to environmental myths, and so much more. While Bush conducted a war on terrorism (though he didn't really take off the gloves), Obama appears to be conducting a war on the war on terrorism.

    LONDON - The failure of North Korea to meet the "deadline" for "fessing up" to everything in its nuclear inventory should have come as no shock to anyone. The only surprise is that US diplomats and (Bush Administration) spokespeople persisted in saying North Korean disablement of its nuclear program was "on track" and all that was needed to complete this "phase" of the deal was for the North to produce that list. Now the all-patient US State Department is saying all is fine, "They should not sacrifice completeness and accuracy for speed," said nuclear envoy Christopher Hill as he prepared...

Armitage's acknowledgment came in response to comments by Plame, who said the former Bush administration official had no right to talk to a reporter about where she worked. A year ago, Armitage publicly apologized to Plame and her husband. The former No. 2 State Department official remains the only principal in the leak to have done so. At least three one-time administration officials in addition to Armitage discussed Plame's CIA status with reporters. They are former White House political...

    An American member of the Christian Peacemaker Team, Tom Fox, was found murdered in Iraq today. He was kidnapped by the Islamist-oriented group known as the Swords of Righteousness Brigades on November 26. Iraqi police reported that Fox had "gunshots to his head and chest and signs of torture on his body." This incident begs the question: Do the Islamist terrorists respect all the appeasement offered them by leftist peace activists like Tom Fox? The answer is a categorical "no," "non," "nein," "nyet," "nr." After all that has happened, the Left still ignores the threat of Islamism, appeasing militant Muslims...

If the west does not stand in solidarity with the Danish, he argues, then the Islamization of Europe will have begun in earnest. The great British philosopher John Stuart Mill wrote in On Liberty, "Strange it is, that men should admit the validity of the arguments for free discussion, but object to their being 'pushed to an extreme'; not seeing that unless the reasons are good for an extreme case, they are not good...

The 18-point guide, under development before the recent London bombing attacks, says "the Muslim community feels victimized and suspicious of counter terrorist police operations and in the current climate a search at a British Muslim household has the potential to become a critical incident and come under intense scrutiny." Befordshire's largest city is Luton, about 30 miles north of London, one of Britain's hotbeds of radical Islam. A nail bomb was discovered...

Arnold Schwarzenegger's retreat on his redistricting plan jeopardizes his entire reform agenda, as well as his plan for a special election, analysts say. Schwarzenegger had already decided to postpone pension reform until next year, then this week softened his stance on redistricting, saying it does not necessarily have to happen by 2006 as he first demanded. But political observers say another retreat could make Schwarzenegger look particularly weak even as his popularity numbers are sagging. "I don't know that he can afford...

I have a feeling she won't be able to help herself, even if the DNC has her hidden away in some secluded and quiet place like was done to the once infamous Martha Mitchell (of John Mitchell/Richard Nixon fame).Teraaaaaayza probably has an over abundance of her favorite gin-soaked white raisins nearby, so what could come from her sweet lips before the election to give G.W. just another little welcome boost? Could she pull a Walter Cronkite and suggest that...

  • KERRY WANT A CRACKER? -- More Vexing Than A Dumb Parrot!

    I once lived next in an apartment complex that was home to a chatty parrot whose comments were impossible to avoid due to the fact they were always delivered at high volume. The parrot would say things like, "You're stupid," and "I love you," and "You're a dummy." But the funny part was that the bird would usually say these things all at once, leaving the confused passerby to wonder how he'd managed to win the parrot's affections when the thing so obviously held his intelligence in such low esteem. One assumes that, being a bird, the parrot had little...

    Syria slams 'foolish' US over Middle East July 27 2003 at 07:24PM By Inal Ersan Damascus - Syria on Sunday said the United States administration was "violent and foolish" and that US policies on the Middle East were influenced by Israel. Foreign Minister Farouq al-Shara also accused Washington of avoiding any rapprochement with Damascus so as not to vex the Jewish state, the United States' main ally in the region. "This administration is extraordinary. Maybe there have been some similar administrations in the past but not with this high level of violence and foolishness," Shara told reporters. 'Most of the...

    Red ink banned from primary booksBBC News Green replacement has critics seething Teachers at a primary school have been told not to mark children's work in red ink because it encourages a "negative approach".

Critics have condemned the change as "politically correct" and "trendy". But Penny Penn-Howard, head of school improvement for Sandwell Council, said: "The colour of the pen used for marking is not greatly significant except that the red pen has negative connotations and can be...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - The Iraqi government announced an amnesty Sunday for all Iraqi prisoners as a thank-you to the nation for reelecting President Saddam Hussein. The statement, read on television by Information Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhafa, said the "full and complete and final amnesty" applied to "any Iraqi imprisoned or arrested for political or any other reasons." Those accused of murder, the statement said, would only be released if the victims' families agreed. The announcement came as the Iraqi government tries to rally domestic and international support in the face of U.S. determination to topple it. The amnesty was...

    Borrowing from the line of Lloyd Bentsen, we are incredibly lucky that we have a president who is Churchillian rather than being Chamberlainesque. Had Western Europe not pretended they could get along with Adolph Hitler and took action early, perhaps millions of lives could have been saved. Peace For Our Time by Neville Chamberlain The following is the wording of the printed statement that Neville Chamberlain waved as he stepped off the plane on 30 September, 1938 after the Munich Conference had ended the day before: "We, the German Führer and Chancellor, and the British Prime Minister, have had a...
