Scientists create fake heart. Fake brain is two years away, but fake courage still available at the bottom of a bottle of Jack Daniels...
New research has found that people who frequent online sex sites have higher rates of depression. I see a chicken and the egg argument starting here...
"You know, my position is the same as Henry Hyde's. And Henry Hyde put it best when he said, when somebody is the victim of a crime, the law currently says that a rapist can't be put to death. That's the law. A rapist under the court doctrines can't be put to death. He said, why is it that the baby who is the result of that criminal behavior can be put to death? He said, isn't that a sad, sad thing. So my feeling is, look, in the case of that, that's the hard case, right? That's the ultimate painful and difficult case. And what we need to do is love that person and encourage them and support them. But once people are categorized by how they were conceived and the circumstances of their conception, you end up going down a route that ultimately I don't think we want to be."
Interestingly enough, I didn't see any mention of the health and well-being of the woman. The problem with avid anti-choicers like Congressman Roskam is that they always leave women out of the equation.

The party pissed me off....
I understand that everyone has the right to dress up however they want, but offensive costumes should not win contest contests. We should not support ignorant buttholes.
One of the winning costumes was "Obama" bid Laden....
The real terrorist here is the guy putting fear into the minds of Americans...

Man accuses NYC police of sodomizing him with walkie-talkie. He could be telling the truth, or he could just be talking out of his ass
NYPD denies claim of sexually assaulting man in subway
NEW YORK (AP) — Prosecutors are investigating allegations that five New York City police officers attacked a tattoo parlor worker and sodomized him with a walkie-talkie in a subway station.
The 24-year-old man says the officers then wrote him a disorderly conduct ticket and abandoned him as he was writhing in pain.
The police department disputes the allegations and strongly denies the man was sodomized.
"Police officers grappled with an individual who they observed smoking marijuana after he had fled and resisted being handcuffed. His assertion that he was sodomized is not supported by independent civilian witnesses on the scene," NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said in a statement.
The case is being investigated by the police department and the Brooklyn District Attorney's office.
The accusations brought back memories of the 1997 assault of Abner Louima, who was beaten and sodomized with a broomstick in a police precinct by officers in one of the most notorious cases of police brutality in NYPD history.
In the latest case, lawyers for the accuser came forward Thursday afternoon with the startling allegations, and a hospital confirmed that he was admitted on the day of the alleged attack and spent four days there.
The man was back in the hospital on Thursday, complaining he was urinating blood and suffering lingering pain, the Daily News reported.
Lawyers say five police officers approached Michael Mineo on Oct. 15 around 12:30 p.m. because they believed he was smoking marijuana near a subway stop in Brooklyn.
When the tattoo parlor employee entered the station, he claims officers jumped him from behind, handcuffed him and wrestled him to the ground, according to attorney Stephen Jackson.
Mineo told his lawyers that he felt a foot on his neck as the officers beat him, then yanked down his pants and sodomized him with the walkie-talkie. The lawyers say the officers took the bleeding Mineo into a police car, wrote him a disorderly conduct ticket and left him at the subway station.
"My God, this just sent chills throughout my body when I heard this," Jackson said. "This is one of the most horrendous acts of police brutality."
One of Mineo's co-workers took him to the hospital, where he remained most of the week with internal injuries. His attorney says the hospital administrator contacted the Brooklyn District Attorney's office because it appeared Mineo was the victim of a sexual assault.
Jackson said medical records corroborate Mineo's story, but would not immediately provide copies of them. Mineo was not available to speak. Brookdale Hospital officials confirmed that he was admitted on Oct. 15 and discharged four days later.
Jackson said he and Mineo didn't go public with the allegations right away because they wanted to give prosecutors time to investigate.
A law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing, said many initial details about the incident cast doubt on Mineo's claims.
For instance, the official said Mineo initially yelled at the scene that he had been shocked with a stun-gun by the officers, but none of the officers was carrying the weapon.
The Brooklyn District Attorney's office says it doesn't comment on any open investigations. Mineo was previously arrested in June on a charge of gang assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

Top 10 Racist Rush Limbaugh Quotes
"I mean, let’s face it, we didn’t have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I’m not saying we should bring it back; I’m just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark."
Okay Rush, slavery was not a good things for the millions of African Americans who were enslaved, raped and beaten. The streets weren’t at all safe for African Americans. Slavery not a bad thing? Someone should put Rush on a plantation for him to see how great it is. Keep on fear and race mongering Rush, you might get to Goebels status.
"You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray [the confessed assassin of Martin Luther King]. We miss you, James. Godspeed."
Martin Luther King is a national hero, not a black hero. Everybody in the United States celebrates his birthday, children are taught to look up to him as a hero in school. He’s earned the respect and admiration of the world and you believe the man who killed him was a hero? This is beyond racist. This is evil, mean spirited, subhuman. Praising the assassin of one of our great American heroes is beyond the scope of regular racism.
"Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?"
No but I’ve noticed that all racist bigots think like Rush Limbaugh. Comparing a respected black politician and minister to common criminals is Jim Crow racism. Maybe all black people look alike to him, but I’ve never seen a picture of a wanted criminal that looks like Jesse Jackson. A serial killer that looks like Rush Limbaugh on the other hand is a whole different story. Ever heard of John Wayne Gacy?
"Right. So you go into Darfur and you go into South Africa, you get rid of the white government there. You put sanctions on them. You stand behind Nelson Mandela — who was bankrolled by communists for a time, had the support of certain communist leaders. You go to Ethiopia. You do the same thing."
The communist connection is an old way of dealing with black leaders. They used it on Martin Luther King, they’re using it on Barack Obama and Limbaugh used it on Nelson Mandela. By siding with the racist apartheid regime over a world-wide symbol of peace and freedom, Limbaugh has shown he’s a global racist.
"Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it."
Limbaugh is once again fear mongering and race baiting by associating professional black athletes with criminals and gangmembers. He continues the fear mongering association of good decent hard working African Americans as criminals.
"The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies."
Now Limbaugh is saying that a an organization with a storied tradition of representing the positive black people for change in their communities are criminals and rioters. An organization that has been represented by intelligent professional African Americans, that has played a part in the Civil Rights movement and continues to be an intelligent, concerned voice for the African American community is degraded to common criminals. There you go Rush. Keep racism alive!!!!
"They’re 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?"
Decent human beings care Rush. Someone out of that 12% may just become President of the United States. Not caring about black people? Even George Bush wouldn’t admit to that.
"Take that bone out of your nose and call me back(to an African American female caller)."
Okay Rush that’s classy. The old African bone in the nose stereotype. Wasn’t funny when the racist white school kids called the black kids that and its definitely not funny when a grown man with audience of millions of easily influenced dittoheads says it either.
"I think the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. They’re interested in black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well. I think there’s a little hope invested in McNabb and he got a lot of credit for the performance of his team that he really didn’t deserve."
I wsn’t super offended by this, the whole black quarterback/coach thing has been going on for years in sports, but the quote was so offensive that Retired General Wesley Clarke said:
"There can be no excuse for such statements. Mr. Limbaugh has the right to say whatever he wants, but ABC and ESPN have no obligation to sponsor such hateful and ignorant speech. Mr. Limbaugh should be fired immediately."
When a respected, retired general condemns the statement of a sportscaster, you know he’s gone to far.
Limbaugh attacks on Obama. Limbaugh has called Obama a ‘halfrican American’ has said that Obama was not black but Arab because Kenya is an Arab region, even though Arabs are less than one percent of Kenya. Since mainstream America has become more accepting of African-Americans, Limbaugh has decided to play against its new racial fears, Arabs and Muslims. Despite the fact Obama graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law school, Limbaugh has called him an ‘affirmative action candidate.’ Limbaugh even has repeatedly played a song on his radio show ‘Barack the Magic Negro’ using an antiquated Jim Crow era term for black a man who many Americans are supporting for president. Way to go Rush.
So Rush Limbaugh has managed to make racist attacks on four of the most admired and respected people of African descent in the past one hundred years, in Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Colin Powell and Barack Obama. He has called for the assassin of Martin Luther King to be given a medal, and said slavery was a good thing. He has claimed that Joe the Plumber, who isn’t even a plumber is more important in this election than Colin Powell, a decorated military veteran who has servded honorably in three admnistrations. How can the Republican party stand by this man and let their candidates appear on his show? Rush Limbaugh’s comments are so racist, they’re funny, in a Borat, Archie Bunker kind of way. What is not funny is the millions of dittoheads who listen to him, who take in and re-spout all the racist rhetoric that he spits. Limbaugh’s statement are echoed in the racist, angry Palin/McCain supporters who shout ‘kill him,’ ‘terrorist,’ ‘communist’ ‘traitor,’ ’socialist’ and ‘off with his head.’
All I can really say is, what an asshole...
It wasnt funny....it was mean.

The singer is convinced former beauty queen Palin has got what it takes to join the all-singing all-dancing five-piece.
The Buttons hitmaker says, "She seems like a headstrong woman, a tough chick. And she's hot."
It's not the only offer on the table for the 44-year-old Republican governor of Alaska - Playboy boss Hugh Hefner has already asked her to strip naked in the famous men's magazine.
Scientists conclude that brachiosaurs got big because they didn't chew their food. Study sheds light on the reason for large people at buffets!
Their small heads helped, too, by allowing those long necks to reach nutritious leaves high up in the trees.
With body lengths of more than 131 feet (40 m) and heights of 56 feet (17 m), sauropods dwarfed meat-eating dinosaurs and even the largest land mammals ever. Sauropods appeared on the scene about 210 million years ago in the Late Triassic and dominated Earth's ecosystems for more than 100 million years from the Middle Jurassic to the end of the Cretaceous.
P. Martin Sander, a paleontologist at the University of Bonn in Germany, and Marcus Clauss of the University of Zurich propose how the plant-eaters could have reached such super sizes and thrive for so long.
For one, unlike duck-billed and horned dinosaurs, sauropods must not have listened to mom, as they didn't chew their food. In general, food chewing and the associated saliva that gets mixed in help to digest food.
Sauropods instead relied on giant bellies for storing lots of food, which could take a long time to digest. Past research has shown that the ferns and other plant material eaten by sauropods packed high amounts of energy needed for growth.
While a complex gut region was necessary, sauropods didn't need big jaws since they didn't chew their food. The smaller jaws meant sauropods could have small heads, which was a prerequisite for having a lengthy neck (their necks couldn't support too much weight). The neck meant the beasts could snag food that was out of reach for their stumpy-necked neighbors.
But life's tough for big guys. For instance, getting rid of excess body heat could have posed a problem for such a big body. And with such a long neck, a large volume of air had to trek through the also-lengthy windpipe before that fresh air reached the lungs.
These dinosaurs solved both problems with a bird-like breathing system. Instead of flexible lungs that expand and contract, sauropods (and modern birds) had a system of air sacs that pumped air through rigid lungs. Other air sacs and hollow spaces lined the spinal column and helped to shuttle unwanted heat away from the body core.
Sauropods also had staying power. One way their giant genes survived involved sauropod reproductive biology. While mammalian plant-eaters give birth to one offspring at a time, sauropods laid several small eggs at once. This would help to increase the dinosaurs' population size and therefore lower the chances of extinction.
Once hatched, the tiny dinosaurs would grow from about 22 pounds (10 kg) to a fully-grown weight at rates similar to those of land mammals. The fast growth would mean a sauropod would quickly reap the benefits of being so large, such as protection from predators.
The researchers suggest sauropod gigantism may have led to the oversized meat-eating dinosaurs, which also were much larger than carnivorous land mammals. One idea is that sauropod eggs would have provided an easy feast for a growing meat-eater. Since mammals have few young that are well-protected, such a food source would be unavailable to meat-eating mammals.
The research, which will be detailed in the Oct. 10 issue of the journal Science, was funded by the German Research Foundation.

I havent been feeling well lately and I just threw up and guess what I had eaten...you guessed correctly spagettios...
So on to another subject: DIETING. I just realized how strange that subject must seem in a puke blog, but dont worry, my two thoughts were unrelated. I do not promote bulemia. I have known quite a few people with the disease, and I have seen its distructive ways.
Ok, off the soapbox and onto something less dull. I realized that I am fat people! Ok, I know you probably all noticed that I am overwieght before this moment, but I am behind the learning curve. And I love being lazy and eating like a pig....
So, my mirror, my jeans, and the scale are all pressuring me to be responsible in the one area that I usually avoid responsibility: my health.
No more excuses...yes I am accident prone, but I am healing from all my past craziness and I need to lose those extra pounds I gained.
But gaining weight is SO much more fun than losing it.
Ok, focus, focus, focus. See how I fight it? I dont even like to discuss a weight loss plan, let alone follow through with one.
HELP MY LOVELY PEEPS...HELP!!!
After note: after posting this blog, I noticed that puking and spagettios were capped, but dieting was lower case...I just thought it was interesting
For those of you who dont know, I am a super sexy ninja assassin... Well I am at least super. I am working on the sexy part....the ninja part....and uh, the assassin part too. But, I am definately super. Got that down pat!
So what does a super sexy ninja assassin do you say....well, we already established that this super sexy ninja assassin doesn't really do the sexy stuff or the ninja assassin stuff. Basically, they are just cool. Everyone wants to be them. In my delusions of granduer, everyone wants to be me!
I mean classy people always buy the entire bar "pink pussies", "tie me to the bed posts", and "pink panty droppers" right? Isnt that class defined at its best?
So, in the places that said rich in this post, I had to change them from drunk to rich...does this have any significant meaning?

Now, don't get confused...I am not romantically intrigued by rapists/murderers. I promise I only write drug addicts in prison and I only date people who kill in self defense. I do have standards you know.
I just wonder what motivates them to do such horrible things? How does a person become so sick? Is it an impulse that they just can't control?
I mean I try to get myself to avoid checking out what my bowel movements look like, but darn it, I am intrigued...everyday, a different shape and a different shade. Does my compulsive bowel watching addiction make me liable to falling to the dark ways of Charles Manson? Do I need to learn to control my impulses? I had better just go turn myself in right now!!!

Go to it!
I basically wasted my whole day making one for all of my friends. In order to save space and all of your sanitys,I am only including the ones I found most interesting. If I didnt include yours, it meant that either you were boring, uninspiring, or I merely forgot your existence (Amy...just kidding).
We will start with me (Because I always find myself interesting):
Dang, I am sexy.....I did Paranoid in Reverse for fun too:
I thought it turned out super cool and I think I will add it as a permanent image somewhere on my blog.
My favorite friend one was Allanna's because her actual pic showed up in it:
I also really like Renae's because alot of red and floral stuff is prominent. It reminded me of her:
Bekah's evoked a lot of emotion for me; very fitting:
And I thought Jenny's was just beautiful (I will never forget my Oregon Babes!):
