bald bear

Its El Chupacabra!

No, its a hairless bear, but scary as heck. Look at the claws on that thing!

Its sort of like a hairless cat. Cats are furry and cute normally, but the Siamese variety are just plain ugly and scary.

Roland Burris is getting educated

October 27, 2009 Comments off

My esteemed Senator, Roland Burris, Has a Lot of Questions About How the Federal Government Works.

Take away quote:

Thank you, Mr. Chairman, this is ā€” this is ā€” I mean this is. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Iā€™m done.
Sen. Roland Burris (D-IL)

Read his entire incoherent, rambling, statement at the link above.

Reminds one of a Billy Madison quote:
Mr. Madison Burris, what you have just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

What are they thinking?

Empire State Building turns red-yellow for China’s 60th

Why would we celebrate a communist revolution?

The only reason I can think of is that China is paying someone a lot of money to do this. OR do you think New Yorkers really love the ChiComs?

So much for Reunification

One in seven Germans want Berlin Wall back

The survey found that many westerners are bitter about higher taxes to pay for rebuilding the formerly communist east, where some 1.2 trillion euros ($1,762 billion) worth of state funds has been transferred in the last 20 years.

Eastern Germans are unhappy about income levels that are on average only 80 percent of western levels and that due to higher unemployment depopulation is decimating parts of the east, where the population has declined by about two million since 1990.

20 years of German welfare and wealth redistribution and they still haven’t learned that socialism doesn’t work. Maybe they should try lowering taxes in the East and killing this “solidarity tax” in the West.

Obama and all liberals take note please.

[UPDATE]
Interesting WSJ article on the status of Germany 20 years after reunification.

What’s in a name?

September 16, 2009 Comments off

Apparently a lot for this Nordic dude.

…bus driver Andreas Jankov has formally changed his name to Julius Andreas Gimli Arn MacGyver Chewbacka Highlander Elessar-Jankov. “I wanted to show that it is possible to be serious and at the same time take the name you like,” said the film enthusiast.

He kind of looks like a cross between Gimli and Chewbacka.
OK that was mean of me. Sorry JAGAMCHE.

Check out what this fish picked up down at the reef.

[Queue “Psycho” music please]
Remmick!
The bugger looks like he’s doing a little song-and-dance routine. How cuuute.

A rare parasite which burrows into host fish before eating and replacing their tongues with itself has been found off the Jersey coast.

WHAT THE…! They are in Jersey??? Now is the time to PANIC!!!

Is it just a coincidence that these creatures look just like the invaders from the Star Trek TNG episode Conspiracy?

[UPDATE]
Its a full scale invasion of tongue snatchers!
Even in Russia now.
