Ummm... Other?

While i'm getting pictures off my phone

Min's parents had this bottle in their house. We didn't ask what it was. We didn't want to be invited to share their bottle of sadness.

Can't Shake Those Last 10lbs?

How about a feeding tube?

Brides-to-be looking to shed that final 10, 15 or 20 pounds in order to fit into their dream wedding gown have taken a controversial approach to crash dieting that involves inserting a feeding tube into their noses for up to 10 days for a quick fix to rapid weight loss.

The K-E diet, which boasts promises of shedding 20 pounds in 10 days, is an increasingly popular alternative to ordinary calorie-counting programs. The program has dieters inserting a feeding tube into their nose that runs to the stomach. They're fed a constant slow drip of protein and fat, mixed with water, which contains zero carbohydrates and totals 800 calories a day. Body fat is burned off through a process called ketosis, which leaves muscle intact, Dr. Oliver Di Pietro of Bay Harbor Islands, Fla., said.

"It is a hunger-free, effective way of dieting," Di Pietro said. "Within a few hours and your hunger and appetite go away completely, so patients are actually not hungry at all for the whole 10 days. That's what is so amazing about this diet."

The doctor's wrong about one thing. The amazing thing about this diet is that it's bat shit crazy!

Shouldn't there be some requirement for doctors to only be allowed to do things that are safe and healthy? If not, there really ought to be one. I'm pretty sure feeding someone 800 calories a day does not meet the definition of either.

The crazy woman they interview in this article talks about how she doesn't have time to exercise and crap. Oh, yeah. Much better to just get a tube stuck through your nose for 10 days. Gawd. And i thought getting your stomach stapled was the craziest idea they were going to come up with for weight loss. How naive of me.

In which the Philadelphia Trumpet acknowledges its Gary Gygax influence

If you aren't yet familiar with my Philadelphia Trumpet fascination, see here and here. After a while, it does get kind of tedious, since they are basically pushing the same strange theory every issue. But never before has the theory been accompanied by such an awesome illustration.

AC -3, THACO 3.  Save vs. Breath Weapon for half damage.

Sadly, the accompanying article states that the fourth beast mentioned in Revelations is not, in fact, a 15 hit die hydra-dragon. It is, of course, the revived Holy Roman Empire, by which they mean the German-led European Union which is secretly controlled by the Vatican. Here's a helpful infographic that should make it all clear.

By 'clear', i mean 'Clear that these people are crazy'.

The Trumpet isn't the only "Christian" religious magazine that is anti-Catholic. Friend of the site Wanyas has slipped me another crazy pamphlet (Dear sir: please stop. I beg you.):

They couldn't even crop the Hitler photo to match the height of the other two?  This is why i stick with the Trumpet; i demand better production values from my religious conspiracy magazines.

Say what you want about the publishers of Tony Alamo Christian Ministries World Newsletter (i hope you will say, "these people are crazy!"), they sure did find an awesome picture of the Pope.

I'd say he's a level 15 magic-user, and could probably take the hydra-dragon if Obama will tank.

Pictures of nekkid people!!!

Classic paintings updated to reflect modern standards about women's weights and breast sizes.

This guy calls the results "grotesque", which seems a bit extreme.

Time for another dose of Philadelphia Trumpet wisdom

From the April 2012 issue:

The liberal view is that human nature is fundamentally good and should be given room to flourish. The realist - and biblical - view is that human nature is fundamentally evil and must be conscientiously governed. Thankfully, the Framers [of the US Constitution] took the latter view. That is a big part of the reason that the system of government they created, while imperfect, has stood for over two centuries and done much to guarantee the success of the United States of America and its people.

And now you know... the rest of the story.
