    That is extremely disturbing. All of it. A man traveling 2,000 miles for fornication. A woman who thinks she is a werewolf spirit. The violence. And that fact that she had books describing such things as female werewolf spirits who enjoy fornication and other werewolfy things.

    PETA Protests Use of Fur in Super Mario Bros.
    http://news.yahoo.com/peta-protests-...090358844.html

    According to PETA, "Tanooki may be just a 'suit' in Mario games, but in real life, tanuki are raccoon dogs who are skinned alive for their fur. By wearing Tanooki, Mario is sending the message that it's OK to wear fur."
    If you press down and B you turn into a stone statue too.... should mason's protest too?

    Lawsuit filed in connection to 2008 Petoskey snow globe fire

    when it was exposed to sunlight, which the snow globe refracted, like a magnifying glass, and "ignited an unfriendly fire in nearby combustibles....
    Never thought of snow globes that way, had you ?

    Would you spend a $100 for one ?

    Tim Tebow 'Jesus' Jerseys are latest craze

    The photo fad of Tebowing has been generating smiles and some indignation for several weeks.

    More controversial is the latest expression of fans linking Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow and religion. The appearance of Broncos jerseys with Tebow's No. 15 and "Jesus" on the back are being called blasphemous by some.

    The jerseys have become a big seller on NFLshop.com since Tebow engineered the Miracle in Miami last month in leading the Broncos to a comeback from a 15-point deficit against the Dolphins.

    Yep, of course this is happening in Florida!

    http://www.tampabay.com/news/localgo...esorts/1207074

    Pasco County is just north of Tampa and has long been known for its nudist resorts, and pretty much nothing else.

    Crack is whack, as Whitney Houston said.

    And this story is disturbing on too many levels.

    Sperm donor who fathered 14 kids reveals he’s a 36-year-old virgin

    Trent Arsenault made national news when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration came after him last month for providing his sperm to childless couples for free through his site TrentDonor.org. The FDA “told him to stop giving away his sperm — or face a $100,000 fine or up to a year in prison — on the grounds that he’s ignoring federal regulations that require blood tests every time a person donates any kind of body tissue or fluid,” according to The San Francisco Chronicle. Until the case is settled, he’s permitted to continue giving away his sperm.

    But that’s all old news. Today, the computer engineer who lives in Fremont, Calif., appeared on the Anderson Cooper talk show and revealed more of his provocative story: He’s a 36-year-old virgin. Turns out Arsenault has a sexual drive that makes him desire something different from actual sex.
