If you have "no place to go," come here!

We all ought to be ashamed.

Even Crosswalk can't say we're not afraid enough now. Look what the GOP and its fearmongering have made of us, America. We're afraid of people praying in public. Oh, but wait -- these six scholars on a plane back to the Southwest from Minnesota weren't praying to Baby Jeebus and God the Wrathful Daddy to nuke all those awful brown heathens, were they?

French Public Service Ads: Why Can't We Have Some Like This?

Thread: 

Simple, powerful, effective. This is what your taxdollars should be doing. The message at the end is roughly translated as "a man who beats his wife teaches violence to his children. I think you'll be able to understand the rest even if you don't speak French. Read below the fold...

Taser Execs Taste Their Own Product

Thread: 

This disturbs me. Not as much as the Iranian-American student being tased five times for not having his student ID card, but still. Is it just me, or is there a "titillation" factor in this video, perhaps some kind of he-man/tough guy prowess demonstration? I suppose it's a "good thing" they understand the effect of their product, but still...it's just weird. Read below the fold...

Hell freezes over, and Lord Kos front-pages a stolen election

Florida. Of course.

Hear the words of Lord Kos: "The evidence is solid".

I don't really have the appropriate department for this one: The Department of Sweet Jeebus, It's About Time, perhaps? Or perhaps The Department of Belated Conversions. Read below the fold...

Turkey recipes, anyone?

Possibly a little late, but then again, my family tradition was to wait until the last possible minute to put the bird in the oven.

Meaning that one Thanksgiving we drove all around town to find possibly the last unfrozen bird in the state, at about 11:00AM on the Thursday.

This was way before the collective national tradition of getting hammered while the Detroit Lions lose again was put in place.

Actually, I do love Thanksgiving. There's no fucking marketing! Read below the fold...

Dogs have owners; cats have staff

How true. Now we have proof:

Your Bi-Lingual Kitty
Adult cats, living apart from humans, have very clear communication with one another. It is spoken mostly through scent, then through facial expression, complex body language, and touch. Meowing is not part of this language. Meow-ese, it would seem, is a language developed exclusively for humans.

So why do cats have two "languages?" Because meowing is unnecessary in a cat's world. But in your world, your pet cat is dependent on you, and quickly learns that you are clearly not picking up the scent messages she leaves on your things, and you are not completely fluent in cat body language.

Savage on Haggard and the bogus Christianist "ex-gay" movement

It turns out evolution happens in real time (as if it would happen in any other kind of time). From the Bradenton Herald (I quote the article almost in its entirety, in case any of the Christianists from Minnesota come back for more):

A new study of lizards in the Bahamas shows that the natural selection pressures that drive evolution can flip-flop faster than previously thought--even in months.

Man, that's even faster than the neo-cons flip-flopped on Iraq! Read below the fold...

TV to Voters: Fuggetabboudit

This doesn't suprise me at all.

•The average length of a single story devoted primarily to elections was roughly
76 seconds. By contrast, a similar national study conducted by the UW
NewsLab during the 2002 mid-term election found the average story ran 89
seconds.

• 41 percent of the election stories were aired in the final week before Election
Day.
