Pork better for sex than Viagra?


Posted using ShareThis

I really love the News sometimes, and I am bewildered why this wasn't reported more.
President Cristina Fernandez(babe #2 in politics, the Prime Minister of The Ukraine is #1) of Argentina in a speech to help promote pork farms in her country said that Pork is better than Viagra with what I hope will be a famous quote where she said she recently ate pork and "things went very well that weekend, so it could well be true."

Can you imagine if President Obama said something like that:
"I just ate some Pork and Michelle and I had a hell of a weekend."

Very sad, but NASA got six more years out of this than they thought. But to think that this little guy is just sitting still functional makes me feel bad. Think of it as WALL-E stuck in sand and he can't get out.

Holy Crap!
I know that there is a shortage of Priests, but my first impression is that the Priesthood and the Catholic Church will always be there. Your chance to play Baseball is a limited window that seems to be open for him.
But who am I to say what a young man should do. If he feels he is getting the call, that is a hard one to say take a message.

There is a scene from "World According to Garp" when they are looking at a house and a small plane crashes into it. They decide to take the house because they figure that something like that can never happen again(or what are the odds of that happening again).

So why not reuse a generator that hasn't been used in 31 years that was part of a reactor that had a stuck valve that led to a partial meltdown. Now what are the chances of anything bad ever happening again?

John Edwards Admits He Fathered Rielle Hunter's Child During Affair - ABC News

This had as much shock value as Mark McGwire admitting he used steroids. Mr. Edwards could have come clean with this a long time ago.

I am also posting a link that suggests that The National Enquirer should win a Pulitzer Prize for their reporting of the Edwards "Affair" and that his admission of fathering the child vindicates their reporting.
Seems unlikely but if a Republican can win in Massachusetts then anything is possible!

File this under the "Duh" category or the "What were they thinking" when it comes to animal studies.

1. Tell everyone it's a new way of curing ham.

2. To do a more accurate study: Use humans!

The deals are getting better, but there is still more the companies can do. This effects the unlimited talk plans while they still require data plans on top of that.
With more data use there is less talking so you are still spending $100 a month, but this could be a ploy to get people to talk more and use less data(as reported on The Radioaffliction!).

NBC Pulls Plug on Jay Leno Shows Prime Time Experiment!

NBC pulls plug on Jay Leno show's prime time experiment

Posted using ShareThis

This could be the end for NBC. This was not supposed to be about ratings this was about saving money instead of the cost of 5 hours of programming(mostly dramas).
It seems like everyone who wants NBC to fail on this was making noise(like CBS) and that freaked out some local NBC affiliates who threatened to air alternate programming.
NBC is in such a no win situation and so many ego's are now in play.
So now NBC's grand idea is to have Jay Leno on for 30 minutes(!?!), then the Tonight Show(which in some parts of the country in will be on at Midnight which is no longer tonight), and then Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
NBC does have the Olympics coming up and that could buy some time for programming in that time slot, but here is my award winning solution for NBC for the remainder of the TV season(appox. early September).
Cut your losses with Leno and instead of repeats of Heroes or Law and Order and please no more stupid News programs. In the 10pm(EST) slot play classic NBC shows from the Past(to remind us that NBC was once a great network).
Little House on the Prairie on Mondays, A-Team on Tuesdays, L.A. Law on Wednesday, Cheers and Seinfeld on Thursday and Bonanza on Friday.
It's just a thought and no worse than Jay Leno!

Dodd Retirement May Help Banking Bill?

Analysis: Dodd Retirement May Help Banking Bill - ABC News

I love the first line of this article
Freed from his liberal base and moneyed donors, Sen. Chris Dodd can now cast himself as the honest broker in negotiations over a massive Wall Street regulation bill.

This is an interesting analysis for ABC News Jim Kuhnhenn, but I can't help but snicker when I read this. That somehow honesty and integrity can only occur when you are without a base or donor or therefore an agenda.

My guess is that a politician can leave politics, but the politics doesn't leave the Politician.
