Traveling at this rate, you can expect them in around a month. This first silhouette of the objects was captured on ...

the second stage of science is reproduction

<t>I'm looking for a guinea pig with $2,000 so I can try to double your money, no fees involved. I made like 900% last year, and if anything that understates how predictable the markets seemed. So for scientific interest, the first step is to try to reproduce this phenomenon with someone else's mone...

<t>The left has gone too far trying to demagogue their enemies. The robots who carry their message have become dysfunctional.I mentioned in another thread how my friend had some college girls over and one of them wanted to have sex with me. But when she found out I support Republicans she snapped, a...

<t>The NFL has a big problem with this gay player kissing his boyfriend with cake and icing on his face. It would be bad enough if Tom Brady were kissing Gisele Bundchen with cake on his face. It might make me puke, but at least the chicks dig it. But when a seventh-tier player who cannot even jump ...

Nigeria

<t>The headline says "A Boko Haram video emerged today purportedly showing some of the kidnapped Nigerian girls and the terror group's leader declaring they have converted to Islam." But to me, it looks like it is the schoolgirls who have converted the group's leader to dressing like a sissy pretty ...

<t>We are in this crazy era of group politics. It was headlines all yesterday that a gay guy got drafted in the NFL. A violent black gay guy. One interesting facet of it, is the thugging of gay culture.My friend reminded me that the 1980's was the gayest era in the US. It was absolutely flaming. Pop...

nothing good comes of not watching television

<t>When I lived in South Beach, there was a TV channel called fTV or fashion television. At that time it mostly showed models walking down runways all day. It is the only TV show I can remember watching on a regular basis. It was hard to turn off, for fear of missing something.In a way, it was like ...

So each time it registers with a t...
