Ummm... Other?

Random Pictures for Random People

Dinosaurs Are Really Unicorns

Well, i guess if you can't accept dinosaurs but you have to come up with some reason for them, why not unicorns?

The existence of unicorns is controversial. Secular opinion is that they are mythical. However, they are referred to in the Bible nine times,[1] which provides an unimpeachable de facto argument for their once having been in existence.

In the original texts, unicorns go by the Hebrew name Re-em whereas the Greek Septuagint used the name Monokeros.[2] Unicorn itself is Latin. All three names mean "one horn".

Post-Noachian references[1] to unicorns have led some researchers to argue that unicorns are still alive today. At the very least, it is likely that they were taken aboard the Ark prior to the Great Flood.

Yes, kids. That's the image they have accompanying the Unicorn post. Thanks to Sadly, No! for this one.

Currently, i'm watching the Atheism page to see how long it takes before they "fix" it.

Totally Rootin' For McMahon

Trump and World Wrestling Entertainment owner Vince McMahon will pick a wrestler to represent them in the ring April at Wrestlemania 23 at Detroit's Ford Field on April 1.

If their pick is beaten in the "Battle of the Billionaires," the loser will get his head shaved after the match, the Detroit Free Press reported Monday.

Can't stand Trump's goddamn comb-over. He's got billions of dollars. He can't spend a few hundred on some hair plugs ferchrissakes? The wrestler he chooses should just throw the match no matter what agreement Trump and McMahon actually hashed out just so that the rest of us don't have to keep looking at his stupid hair.

Gadgets Banned in Crosswalks

State Senator Carl Kruger on Wednesday will introduce legislation that would allow officers to fine people crossing the street while chatting on a cellphone, using a Blackberry or listening to an MP3 player in New York City or Buffalo.

Kruger says that when people use the electronic gadgets, they disengage from the world, and are oblivious to other pedestrians and vehicles.

"I'm not trying to intrude on that," Kruger told Reuters. "But what's happening is when they're tuning into their iPod, or Blackberry, or cellphone or video game, they're walking into speeding buses and moving automobiles. It's becoming a nationwide problem."

Krueger says the government has a responsibility to protect citizens. His proposal comes after the death of three Brooklyn residents who were listening to music when they were struck by vehicles at a busy intersection. Kruger says that in one case, bystanders shouted warnings but the person could not hear their appeals.


Now, i'm all for the government protecting its citizenry in certain respects. They should protect you from the recklessness of others. I'm less inclined to go along with them protecting me against me. The harsh, cold view of it is that these 3 people were morons and that's why they walked into speeding vehicles.

If you're crossing the street, as a pedestrian, you certainly have right of way and in court that will definitely work in your favor. But when it comes down to your soft, human body versus a 10 ton metal vehicle plus momentum, you had damn well watch where you're going and get the hell out of the way. Dead is dead. Screw right of way.

Plus, these people were from NYC. If there's one thing i've learned about NYC, get the hell out of the street cause that cabbie is not slowing down for your ass. Nobody's saying the cabbie's right or that he's not an asshole and a danger to society. I'm just saying the smart people out there have some sense of self-preservation, ferchrissakes, and will not be walking into a speeding bus with or without an ipod.
