Loretta Nall Over the Place


Oh, boy, if I lived in Alabama I'd be voting/writing in Loretta's name come November. Check out her sites here and here. Read the story about when she was busted for pot. It is tres awesome. She doesn't take any shit, that is fer sure. Platform: Legalize the Weed. Not comply with the Patriot Act. My kinda girl.

Ala. Hopeful Puts Forth Unique Platform:
"MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Loretta Nall, the Libertarian Party's write-in candidate for governor of Alabama, is campaigning on her cleavage and hoping that voters will eventually focus on her platform.
She's no joke, either. She REALLY knows her shit. Check her out on Olberman:

Let stay with the YouTubes on the internets found on the google. Here is Pumpkinhead speaking some rare truth on the race baiting occuring in Tennessee by the Rethugs and the general racist tendency of the Rethugs. Hey, I'm not saying that all Republicans are racist.... but I am saying that all racists are Republicans.

Somebody must be feeling a change in government coming around the bend.

Nothing to see here folks. Just us government types digging around in your trash.

FBI director wants ISPs to track users:
"FBI Director Robert Mueller on Tuesday called on Internet service providers to record their customers' online activities, a move that anticipates a fierce debate over privacy and law enforcement in Washington next year."


Mesmerizing YouTube video of people on YouTube. If you've got 10 minutes of nothing today, this is a good way to fill it. Angst ridden teens, booty shaking, unsuspecting old folks, suspecting old folks.... this one has it all.

The zenith of YouTube's ascent has been reached. I think that's why I've been using them so much of late.

Blinded me with science

Oh, the possibilities. An entirely new version of Porky's could be written.

Scientists Create Cloak of Partial Invisibility:
"Scientists have created a cloaking device that can reroute certain wavelengths of light, forcing them around objects like water flowing around boulders in a stream. To creatures or machines that see only in microwave light, the cloaked object would appear nearly invisible."
They found Jesus.

New images may give clues on universe's origins:
"JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - The newly discovered collision of two galaxies millions of years ago, which sparked rings of fire that are still expanding, may offer new clues on the origins of the universe, astronomers said on Wednesday.


Lack of sleep puts on the pounds, then, aye?

Why staying up makes you fat:
"An analysis of recent data suggests sleep deficits are making people fat. In studies, 1) sleep shortage in babies and toddlers correlated with obesity at age 7, 2) sleep shortage in adults correlated with high levels of a hormone that tells the brain to eat, and 3) kids who woke up tired got less exercise, which in turn would have helped them sleep. Hypothesis: Sleep shortage distorts your body's regulation of appetite and energy use, thereby promoting obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Researchers' advice:"
I'm sure it has nothing to do with this:

Fried Coke a big hit at US state fairs:
"CHICAGO (AFP) - Fried Coke has become the latest artery-clogging hit at US state fairs, local media reports.

The gooey Coke-battered nuggets topped with cola syrup won the 'most creative' title at the Texas state fair in Dallas last month. Since then, the deep-fried phenomenon has spread to North Carolina and Arizona.
Better start eating some purple 'maters!

'Definitely different': Tomatoes the color of blueberries:
"SALEM, Oregon (AP) -- Oregon State University researchers are fine-tuning a purple tomato -- a new blend of colors and nutrients. The skin is as dark as an eggplant. But it doesn't just look cool -- it could be better for you.

The novel pigment contains the same phytochemical found in blueberries that is thought to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. Six years in the making, the purple hybrid could hit salad plates in two years."
