leave a comment »

On November 4th, the random number generators inside electronic voting machines will switch on and decide who the leader of the free world will be for the next four years. Arguably more important are the sixty ballot initiatives and referenda that will be decided on in sixteen of these United States.

Amazing weather video from Earle, Ark.

leave a comment »

The good people of Arkansas were recently hit by another outbreak of tornadoes in which seven folks lost their lives.

Check out this video from Earle, Ark. No lives were lost as a result of this tornado, and that is almost unimaginable. This is probably the most amazing weather video I’ve ever seen.

Some gems from the LOLCat Bible Translation Project

leave a comment »

There is a rather large group of people somewhere on this crazy series of tubes translating the Holy Bible into LOLSpeak, the language of those oh-so-lovable LOLCats.

Who is God in this LOLCat Bible, you ask?  None other than the all-knowing ever-present Ceiling Cat.

Ceiling Cat

I spent some time today reading the scriptures, and I found a few real gems.  Take, for instance, Matthew 1:22 -25, the passage that deals with the angel coming to Joseph to tell him about the forthcoming birth of Jesus.

22 So all dis was all did cuz Ceiling Cat had sed it wud be. His proffit was all liek: 23 “Hay guise, luk! teh virjn is all preggers, and dey gonna call him A-manual”, dat be joospeek for “Ceiling Cat wit us” 24 Then Joseph walked up, dun wat teh anjel frm Ceiling Cat tolded him too, and was all liek “U wit me now lol” at Mary. 25 And dey didnt has teh buttsechs til affer dey gets a son and calleded him Jebus. Kthnx.

A part of me thinks I should be mildly offeneded by some of this stuff, but I just find it so funny.

International perspective on our presidential election

leave a comment »

I had to pass along this gem from Dvorak Uncensored. This was emailed to John from a reader who got it from her mother in Denmark.

We in Denmark cannot figure out why you are even bothering to hold an election in the US.

On one side, you have a bitch who is a lawyer, married to a lawyer, running against a lawyer who is married to a bitch who is a lawyer.

On the other side, you have a war hero married to a good looking woman with big tits who owns a beer distributorship.

Is there really a contest here?
