Doomsday Clock Should Keep Up With The Times

leave a comment »

Yawn.

Man is the only creature that knows it’s going to die, and atomic scientists are the only professionals who measure the amount of time before man annihilates himself. But there is good news from those scientists: Humanity inched away from Armageddon on Thursday morning. The Doomsday Clock was set back one minute, from 11:55 to 11:54, reversing a precipitous slide toward midnight, the zero hour, ultimate self-destruction.

Call me when this clock finally turns digital. Or, better yet, becomes part of a giant cell phone that takes pictures, texts and whatever else these things do nowadays.

Actually, I thought this stupid thing was going to be moved closer to MIDNIGHT, seeing how “climate change” is part of the equation which determines when we all go boom.

Future Looks Breit For Bart

leave a comment »

So some British newspaper is doing another “Top 100 Liberals” and “Top 100 Conservatives.” I’m not reading the list, but I did notice Andrew Breitbart on the list. I couldn’t really miss this because I saw this on … Andrew Breitbart’s website. Anyway, why am I talking about this? Because this snippet made me LOL. I’m sure you’ll figure it out, espeically since someone doesn’t exactly LOL at something and then continue posting additional parts of the story. If you still can’t figure it out, then I don’t know what to tell you.

He took on Hollywood in his group blog site BigHollywood and broke the ACORN scandal when the young unknown filmmakers Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe approached him with undercover footage of employees of the Left-wing community organising group condoning under-age prostitution by illegal immigrants. The mainstream media were slow to pick the story up but eventually they could not ignore it.

The public editor of the New York Times eventually conceded that his newspaper needed “to be alert” to such stories “or wind up looking clueless or, worse, partisan itself”.

One Too Many Swedish Meatballs

leave a comment »

While Drudge posted the obvious in his headline: Weight Watchers clinic floor collapses under dieters, I looked deeper into this story.

The floor of a Weight Watchers clinic in Sweden collapsed beneath a group of 20 members of the weight loss programme who were gathered for a meeting.

As the dieters queued to see how many pounds they had shed, the floor beneath them in the clinic in Växjö, in south-central Sweden, began to rumble, according to a report in The Local, Sweden’s English-language newspaper.

Sweden? I thought everyone was supposed to be blonde and skinny over there.

Cadillac Cash

leave a comment »

Here’s hoping my health insurance resembles the car I currently drive: a Suzuki. Of course, after the Non-Dialect Negro and pals are through, we’ll all be driving Yugos.

President Hussein and congressional Democrats scored a big victory in healthcare talks on Thursday, winning labor union support for a revised tax on high-cost insurance plans that could clear the way for a final agreement.The deal on the Senate’s “Cadillac tax” removed one of the biggest obstacles in the merger of healthcare bills passed by the Senate and House of Representatives, and negotiators hope to reach agreement on the bill’s major provisions as soon as Friday.

In an early evening visit to House Democrats on Capitol Hill, Osama acknowledged that opinion polls show the healthcare overhaul is unpopular but promised attitudes would change once the final bill is passed.

Oh, I’m sure attitudes will change alright.

“Revised tax.” LOL — I can’t wait to see what was “revised.”

And speaking of the deliberations to this shit sandwich, loved those “transparent” deliberations, President Hussein.

The head of C-SPAN has implored Congress to open up the last leg of health care reform negotiations to the public, as top Democrats lay plans to hash out the final product among themselves.

C-SPAN CEO Brian Lamb wrote to leaders in the House and Senate Dec. 30 urging them to open “all important negotiations, including any conference committee meetings,” to televised coverage on his network.

“The C-SPAN networks will commit the necessary resources to covering all of the sessions LIVE and in their entirety,” he wrote.

Forget broadcasting health care deliberations. I just want to see an authentic birth certificate from the most powerful Muslim in the free (and no-so-free) world. Little steps. Little steps…

Late-Night With ?

leave a comment »

So I haven’t watched one of these late-night shows in forever, so this whole Jay Leno going back to the Tonight Show, which is being going back to a later time. (Is it still? I haven’t been paying attention.)

I’m not a Leno hater. In fact, I always preferred him to Letterman. Jimmy Kimmel? Haven’t watched an entire broadcast of his. Not saying he’s bad. Not saying he’s good. I just don’t watch late shows like I once did.

Who’s in the right — Conan or Jay? I don’t care. Both never need to work again. When both sides make as much as they do, I’ll side with whoever pays me.

With all that said, this is great. You can find other parts of this monologue on YouTube.

I don’t know what’s funnier: Kimmel’s impression, the same baseline being played after every joke or the guy acting like Kevin Eubanks and laughing/commenting. I have to go with Option #3.

And on a side note, WTF is with the answer of “My personal life is nobody’s business” from that chick on “The Bachelor”? You’re on NETWORK TELEVISION in a “REALITY SHOW” where you are trying to HOOK UP with some guy. “Personal life” was checked out at the mansion, or whatever they do on that show. (The clip comes at 1:15.)

This Idea Is Not A Slam Dunk. On Second Thought…

leave a comment »

Let’s see. You have an exhibition contest that has lost its luster over the years. What do you do?

Expand on it? What a great idea!

Raptors rookie guard DeMar DeRozan’s chances of making it into the Slam Dunk contest during NBA all-star weekend got a boost last night.

The league has announced that in addition to the three automatic entries into the contest who will be unveiled next Monday, an NBA all-star Slam Dunk-In competition will be held to determine the fourth and final participant in the actual dunk contest.

The participants for the Dunk-In will be announced on television tonight before the broadcast of the Chicago Bulls-Boston Celtics game.

The two players chosen to participate will get two dunks at half time of the Rookie Challenge & Youth Jam event on the Friday of all-star weekend. Fans will determine the winner by voting via text message or at NBA.com with the winner advancing to the actual dunk contest the following night.

I feel for the participants. I’m sure it’s difficult to come up with new ways to throw a ball through a hoop. The one thing I don’t like about this contest is that you have to bring out your best stuff in the opening round in hopes of advancing. So what happens when you get the the finals? Then again, I’m probably over-analyzing this a bit too much.
