The Nando Times: Adam Ant pleads guilty to charge in pub brawl

So much for being a Goody Two-Shoes. He pulled a starter pistol on patrons who made fun of his clothing, which worries me because I’ve been making fun of his clothing for about twenty years.

Not Rocket Scientists

Anti-gravity device too important to ignore

Since 1966, NASA has tried to repeat Finnish scientist’s work here

Pardon me a moment while I bang my head on my desk.







Okay.

To Ron Koczor, the $650,000 NASA has invested in the project is worth the risk even if the science may seem wild. Koczor, who oversees the project at Marshall, believes the payoff could be advances in space transportation, new types of medical treatments and a host of other commercial applications.

Not to mention the entertainment value. I mean, $650,000 — that’s nothing. I mean, Carrot Top makes that kind of money, and he’s not nearly as funny as government scientists trying to build an antigravity machine. How much are we spending on perpetual motion?

An anti-Bob Barr protester attending a Barr campaign rally dressed as Yosemite Sam was pushed over by a Barr campaign worker. Apparently there’s internet video of the incident, though this machine is creaky and I don’t dare try to play video on it.

I suppose it’s better than gunplay.

Isn’t that usually the case? Economic slowdown = more people shopping at Wal-Mart. Which is probably a good thing, since soon enough most of us will be working there.

Ananova – Islamic militants attack Palestinians in refugee camp

Fighting amongst yourselves? Tsk, tsk… Lebanese “militants” attacked a Yasserite Palestinian “security” post. Two are dead. I’m not broken up about it.

Bush Convenes Forum in Waco on the Economy

My God, he’s turning into Shatner!

I have one question… Is it really wise to hold an “Economic Forum” in a city that not only is best known as the location of the fiery deaths of a cult group but is also only one letter away from being “Wacko”? I’m just saying.
