Ten years ago: Terrorists attacked America.

Six months ago: An earthquake and tsunami devastated Japan.

Today: New York lives. Kesennuma lives.

We remember. We mourn. We stand together. We rebuild. We go on.

While I have no desire to detract from the level of tragedy in the Metro rail crash, I have to admit a pause for amusement upon reading that the button in the control cab that triggers the emergency brake is apparently called the "emergency mushroom".

I don't have a problem with a 16 year old marrying a 17 year old. I don't have a problem with the girl's dad paying £100,000 for the wedding. I don't have a problem with the wedding dress itself costing £16,000. If that's how they want to spend their money, so be it. But, in the name of all the fashion gods, if you're going to spend that much on a wedding dress, why would you pick one that looks like this?

So I was watching this episode of the Colbert Report (which [profile] hoya99 turned me on to), and enjoying his interview with Queen Noor, when he asked her to knight him. I closed my jaw just in time to drop it again when she agreed. Then I had to scrape it off the floor when I saw the sword he pulled out to offer her, which looks very much to me like Anduril.

Any LOTR geeks want to watch and confirm for me? [personal profile] silmaril?

Condoms are not the answer to AIDS in Africa. Maybe he thinks that African nations should be importing the American concept of purity balls instead.

This has been your edition of The Pope Says.
ladynox25: (Default) can be jailed for screwing a doe. (Well, to be more precise, for screwing *antlers* on a doe.)

What got me was the following quote from the Chief Warden:

"Something wasn't natural about them, in addition to the fact that they weren't natural."

Would you like to know what the US Catholic Church's top priority is right now?

I'll tell you. Their top priority is to pull out all the political stops to fight a bill that doesn't exist.

Figures. Every time I think about becoming a full-time Catholic again[1], they have to pull something like this. I am deeply embarrassed.

[1] And especially now, when I'm starting to make plans to baptize my future child.

This has been a public service announcement.

How did I miss seeing NASA's new lunar rover during the Inaugural Parade? *SO* *COOL*!

Exhibit A:

Boy is dared to lick frozen metal pole. Boy licks frozen metal pole. Boy gets tongue stuck to frozen metal pole.

Exhibit B:

Man carries pistol into restaurant. Man uses restaurant's restroom. Man pulls up pants. Man's pistol falls out of holster. Man's pistol discharges, shooting toilet.

Israel attacking Gaza is bad. No question about that.

Apparently, what Israel wanted was to attack Iran. Instead? In addition to?

Either way, yeah. *That* would have been worse. Much, much worse.

I'm not holding my breath, but I can't be the only one wondering if Armageddon -- without the return-of-the-Messiah but possibly with the end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it connotations -- is about to occur over there.

Laugh: Sarah Palin's pregnant teenage daughter's future mother-in-law arrested on drug charges. Yeah, that baby's gonna have a *real* stable, moral, healthy home environment, yes sir.

Cry: A breakdown of exactly how the Treasury has spent (IOW, wasted) the first $350 billion of the TARP funds.
