How Long Ya Got? World Life Expectancy at Birth

Congratulations. If you're reading this, you have won the lottery of life.

If you're a moron, you should pace yourself for about 75 years on the disco floor; moronettes, you get an extra 5 years to party down and wait in line for the bathroom.

Of course if you're a regular here, you'll also have to apply the AoSHQ LifestyleTM lifespan discount. So be sure to use your remaining 16.361 years wisely. i suggest giving up corect speling local news and not seperating yur recyclubables


Obligatory: The "Tea Party Zombies Must Die" Video Game of Hate
Eh. Normally I wouldn't give a crap about this except we were all lectured incessantly back in January about how the atmosphere of 'incivility' and cross-hairs on web pages led to actual political violence. Yet here's a game whose whole premise is based on killing your political enemies. But the MFM's outrage meter is currently reading 0.00. There's hypocrisy and then there's utter shameless f*cking MFM-style hypocrisy.


10 Myths About Introverts
Don't like to leave your cave and deal with <shudder> people? Then you might be an INT-type personality.

Myth #1 Ė Introverts donít like to talk.
This is not true. Introverts just donít talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they wonít shut up for days.

Myth #2 Ė Introverts are shy.
Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They donít interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Donít worry about being polite.

So what you can do about it beside the off-label medications and unproven surgeries?
Well there's this: 7 Strategies for Introverts (by Introverts) to Ignite Your Social Skills

Another Severed Foot Washes Up In Pacific NW

The discovery of a human foot in a rubber-soled shoe washed up on the Canadian coast near Vancouver has deepened a four-year mystery.

DNA testing is under way but police are at a loss to explain how it got there.

The macabre find brings to a dozen the number of human feet Ė all in rubber soled shoes Ė which have been discovered since August 2007.

Pro tip: Always dump your hobo carcasses at least 50 miles away. This keeps the police guessing and the local game from getting wary.

Ten Enduring Myths About the U.S. Space Program

6. ďNASA's budget accounts for nearly one-fourth of government spending.Ē
In truth, NASAís budget as a percentage of federal spending peaked at 4.4 percent in 1966, and hasnít risen above 1 percent since 1993. Today, the U.S. space program accounts for less than one-half of 1 percent of all federal spending.

Where The Finnish Women At?
Apparently in Michigan's upper peninsula. And I'm proud to say that my peoples are Americans of American descent.


The Top 10 Most Extreme Substances
Here's the list of most Xest substances. How about a little ClF3, Scarecrow!

Chlorine triflouride has the dubious honor of being terrifyingly flammable, to the point that historyís evil boy-scouts, the Nazis, deemed it too dangerous to work with. When people who consider genocide their lifeís goal donít want to use something because it is too deadly, it bears treating it with some caution. There is a story that a ton of the stuff was spilled once and caught fire, and it burned through 12 inches of concrete and another meter of sand and gravel before going out. I hate to say it, but in this case, the Naziís were right.
