Like a Roller Coaster

Oh my!

Now here's a bit of privacy rights violation that I can get behind.

Hacker's doing the people's work!

Like Cheney but stupider.

Sarah Palin’s Yahoo account hijacked, e-mails posted online | Zero Day |

"On the heels of media reports that Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin was using a private Yahoo e-mail account ( to conduct Alaska state business, hackers have broken into the account and posted evidence of the hijack on Wikileaks.

An activist group calling itself ‘anonymous’ claimed responsibility for the compromise and released screenshots, photographs and the e-mail addresses of several people close to Palin, including her husband Todd and assistant Ivy Frye."

Besides, the Repubs picked the wrong Palin to join the ticket.


Great article on my friend's bro who just won his primary in NY.

Squadron’s Agenda - A More Open Albany -

"In just a few short days, Daniel L. Squadron has gone from neophyte insurgent candidate to wunderkind. His victory in the Democratic primary last week over State Senator Martin Connor, a 30-year veteran of Albany and onetime Senate minority leader, has made Mr. Squadron, 28, one of the most talked-about figures in New York City politics."

Who came up with this crap idea anyway?

I've never understood vodka and Red Bull. Not even the beloved-in-Athens chipmunk.

Isn't it all just a bit self defeating?

States ask MillerCoors to pull energy drink:

"MILWAUKEE - Twenty-five states asked beverage maker MillerCoors LLC on Wednesday to abandon plans for a new caffeine-infused alcoholic energy drink.

Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal said in a statement that the Sparks Red drink is a 'recipe for disaster' because adding caffeine to alcoholic beverages reduces drinkers' sense of intoxication."


Vegetables will kill you!

Thank jeebus I've stuck to a meat a potato diet lo' these many years.

I was doing Atkins before Atkins was cool.

Eating veggies shrinks the brain-Health/Sci-The Times of India:

"MELBOURNE: Scientists have discovered that going veggie could be bad for your brain-with those on a meat-free diet six times more likely to suffer brain shrinkage."

"Brain scans of more than 1,800 people found that people who downed 14 drinks or more a week had 1.6% more brain shrinkage than teetotallers. Women in their seventies were the most at risk.

But then there's this part:

Beer does less damage than wine according to a study in Alcohol and Alcoholism.

Researchers found that the hippocampus-the part of the brain that stores memories - was 10% smaller in beer drinkers than those who stuck to wine."
