NEWS: Dodgeball Ninjas, Bach, And Bad Astronomy

Road This kid is a dodgeball ninja.

Road Corporations vs. DOMA: Microsoft, Google, Aetna, Nike, Levi Strauss, Starbucks, CBS, Time Warner Cable, and others speak out.

Road Michelle Bachmann on the creation of the capital:

You see, there’s a reason our Founding Fathers decided to establish our political capital in a different city than our financial capital. It’s time for us to reaffirm the wisdom of that decision by getting Washington D.C. out of free markets. I’m running for president because I understand the difference between free markets and Bernie Madoff style government.

Road Liz Jones on the theft of her boyfriend's sperm:

Because he wouldn’t give me what I wanted, I decided to steal it from him. I resolved to steal his sperm from him in the middle of the night. I thought it was my right, given that he was living with me and I had bought him many, many M&S ready meals.

Road Interact with the beauty of Bach.

Road "If you're a bigot when you're angry, you're a bigot all the time." Also, a moron.

Road Why do you lie so much?

Road Australian PM stands alone against marriage equality.

  1. Hey, can you fix the dodgeball link? It goes to the sperm-stealer article.

  4. Hi! Sorry about that. I fixed both links, which took a little longer than it shouldve. (Ive got no modem at my house just now, and Im working from a phone via 3G. Hard to wrangle with HTML that way.) Thanks for looking out ...

  5. The Tami Said article on bigotry and Kelly Osbourne worked, so thanks for that. Definitely some food for thought . . . and probably some controversy. While I think that people can say some ugly things about people who have broken their hearts and not mean them, one has to wonder if the person says/thinks those things in a non-heartbroken situation.

    If a guy broke up with me to date a woman (if I hadn't known he was a bisexual), I don't know how I'd verbally react. I'd like to think I wouldn't react this way. But then again, if I were a celebrity (full disclosure: I'm not), I'd like to think I'd be more careful of what I'd say in public, not that that would excuse what I'd say in private.

    It's a conundrum of sorts. But I'm mostly with the author of the piece.

  6. Michele Bachmann, "I'm running for President because I love to suck down a glass or two (or more) of sacramental wine every night. The visions I have while toasted are gonna rock the world."

  8. the famous handbag, Birkin, was named for actress Jane Birkin. In popular culture, the Birkin bag has been featured on television shows such as Gilmore Girls, Sex and the City, as well as on the arms of well-heeled celebrities like Victoria Beckham and so on.

  9. HISTORICAL CORRECTNESS: The United States capital is located where it is due to a compromise among the 13 colonies. It was purely a geographical decision. In fact, I believe Richmond, Virginia was the financial center when the capital was built.

  10. Would someone please tell Michele Bachmann that our nation's first capital city was, wait for it, New York City. Boy, she is stupid.

  11. The tranny's behavior is despicable. A sell-out whore who ruined Kelly's relationship. Who cares if it is a tranny, a man or a woman? The behavior is worse than anything Kelly did. Kelly is a bigot? The tranny is a scumbag, selling a sleazy story for cash. Let's see how long the tranny's new love lasts...before she does something else equally base?

  12. Oops. Should have written "capitol city." How embarrassing. Don't tell Michele.

  13. As Correcting Michele said, NYC was the first capital. Maybe someone should tell MB what Federal Hall is. The political capital only moved to DC because Thomas Jefferson wanted it there because he had a more agrarian vision of the new country and he thought the capital should better situated to reflect that.

  14. @Correcting Michele. You were right the first time. The Capital is the city. The Capitol is the building. :-)
