    The College Football Czar Week 13 Week twelve in review: The top two teams in the BCS ratings were upset, which, according to the media template, has thrown the championship picture into “chaos.” Top-ranked Kansas State should now be out of the running altogether, after getting the phlegm beaten out of them by ninth-place Baylor, 52-24. Oregon, having lost to Stanford 17-14 in overtime, still has a chance, although they need help from a couple conference rivals. Not only did Oregon lose a much better game to a much better opponent than K-State did, but the human polls are bound...

    Whitehouse, Texas — Joseph Rose and Cole Kellis were leaving their home in Whitehouse on Friday morning when they noticed a deer in their front yard. Rose approached the deer and he says the deer seemed friendly. But then Kellis and Rose say the deer then charged them and started to attack. Rose and Kellis ran to Rose's pick-up truck to try to get away from the wild buck. The deer then "poked" Rose in his ribs, so Rose jumped out of his truck into the back-bed. Rose says he left his driver-side door open and the deer climbed in...

    Russian babushka slays wolf with axe, bare hands Robert T. Gonzalez Do not cross Aishat Maksudova. The Russian grandmother was tending to her livestock when a wolf attacked her village of Novo Biryuzyak, Dagestan. So she cooly axed it in the head. Metro UK has the full story, including an excellent video of Maksudova describing and pantomiming her valiant struggle with the wolf, but her descriptions of the encounter paint a pretty good picture of the scene, and how unfazed she was by the whole thing: [I was] not even frightened. With an open mouth, the wolf suddenly jumped on...

    The coach had put together the perfect team for the Chicago Bears. The only thing that was missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges and even the Canadian and European Leagues, but he couldn't find a ringer who could ensure a Super Bowl win. Then one night while watching CNN he saw a war-zone scene in Afghanistan . In one corner of the background, he spotted a young Afghan Muslim soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand-grenade straight into a 15th story window 100 yards away. KABOOM! He threw another hand-grenade 75 yards...

    Stuff Dutch People Like ^ | January 2012 | Anon
    "Mommy, what's that???" For anyone reading this, it shouldn’t come as a big surprise that Dutch food has yet to sweep the globe. Although pockets of the Dutch can be found scattering the world, delectable Dutch cuisine never seemed to have caught on. “Fancy I pick up some Dutch food on the way home from work?” or “Wow, you have got to try this new Dutch restaurant in SoHo!” are phrases you will never hear uttered. Isn’t it odd that a nation of traveling, colonizing, patriotic, emigrating folk never managed to sow their own culinary seeds? C’mon, who are we...

    COLUMBUS, November 16, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The “War on Women” rhetoric received a new twist this week when Ohio State Senator Nina Turner showed up to a Planned Parenthood press conference wearing a t-shirt declaring that GOP stands for “get out of my panties.” GOP, the other name for the Republican Party, is an acronym for “Grand Old Party.” The press conference was called in response to renewed efforts to defund Planned Parenthood in the state, as well as to pass the “Heartbeat Bill,” which would ban abortion after the point when the unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable. Earlier this...

    All these petitions at the whitehouse.gov website asking for states to secede.....it's just silliness. I mean, I agree with the sentiment, but really? You're going to create an account, give them your name and contact info at the whitehouse.gov website and sign something that says you don't like the federal government? Does anyone remember Obama and his secret "kill lists"? It's just silliness, I say. Does anyone think Obama will actually care what these petitions say? Does anyone think anything will be done about it?  Does anyone think this federal government will take this seriously?Look at some other silly...

    The College Football Czar Week 12 Week eleven in review: Alabama was bounced from the #1 position in the BCS, though not out of the national championship picture, in a 29-24 loss to Texas A&M. The Crimson Tide spotted the Conjunction Boys a 20-0 lead, before pulling within a field goal in the third quarter. A&M, defying well-founded expectations, opted not to choke this time. Although the SEC now dominates the BCS ratings, that league would not currently have a representative in the national championship game. This week’s ratings place Kansas State #1, followed by the only other eligible unbeatens,...

  • Brilliant people solves all the problems in California

    I’m not sure which is my favorite part — probably where the young woman explained that “food is free, all you have to do is pay the farmers” — but I think the “vegetable trees” was the best. Actually, I think the most edifying part was watching the Santa Cruz, California city council sit impassively to the very end, or maybe the strangled applause just before they asked for the next speaker.
