A storm that wreaked havoc as it dumped as much as 10 inches of snow from Texas to Indiana barreled eastward on Friday, promising to bring more of the same.
Ouch… I’ll be thinking of all you folks while I’m out playing golf today
Earth’s north magnetic pole is drifting away from North America and toward Siberia at such a clip that Alaska might lose its spectacular Northern Lights in the next 50 years, scientists said Thursday.
Scientists have long known that magnetic poles migrate and in rare cases, swap places. Exactly why this happens is a mystery.
Previous studies have shown that the strength of the Earth’s magnetic shield has decreased 10 percent over the past 150 years. During the same period, the north magnetic pole wandered about 685 miles out into the Arctic, according to a new analysis by Stoner.
I blame global warming.
I found a new mutual fund to invest in. The Vice Fund. They invest in liquor, tobacco, gambling, and war. As the song says, “these are a few of my favorite things.”
â€œIt is the Advisor’s philosophy that although often considered politically incorrect, these and similar industries and products…will continue to experience significant capital appreciation during good and bad markets. The Advisor considers these industries to be nearly â€˜recession-proof.â€™â€ – Vice Fund Prospectus, July 29, 2005, page 2.
Sounds pretty plausible to me.
I’ve reposted my piece on Natural Rights over at The Liberty Papers.
A Turkish villager who ran away with his friend’s wife has offered his own wife in exchange, newspapers said on Thursday.
Farm laborer Cengiz Esme said Gulhan, his wife of 18 years, disappeared a month ago after leaving their village to go shopping in the southern Turkish town of Tarsus.
The 36-year-old said his village friend Mehmet Yaksi had telephoned him the next day and said: “I’ve run off with your wife …. You take my wife,” the Radikal daily reported.
Esme pleaded for Gulhan to return and said he was ready to forgive her and make a fresh start elsewhere. The reports said Yaksi’s wife, a mother of three, declined to comment on the situation.
She declined to comment, the only sound in the room was Yaksi’s wife loading her Kalashnikov.
Darn right. I do sincerely hope that I can get Georgia to start allowing liquor and beer sales on Sundays. If the stores want to remain closed on Sunday, they can choose to do so.
Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
