Tonight we're gonna kick-it Martian-style.
Expect a Bailout 2.0 in Obama's 2nd term:
They're digging mass graves behind the Renaissance Center:
Okay Axelrod and Obama are really digging through the bottom of the barrel on this one.
But Romney does look pretty sharp in that uniform.
Churchill in 1945 just days after the Nagasaki bombing:
There are voices which assert that the bomb should never have been used at all. I cannot associate myself with such ideas. Six years of total war have convinced most people that had the Germans or the Japanese discovered this new weapon, they would have used it upon us to our complete destruction with the utmost alacrity. I am surprised that very worthy people, but people who in most cases had no intention of proceeding to the Japanese front themselves, should adopt the position that rather than throw this bomb, we should have sacrificed a million American, and a quarter of a million British lives in the desperate battles and massacres of an invasion of Japan.
Iowahawk: "Paul Ryan represents Obama's most horrifying nightmare: Math."
Verified by NASA's recent Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter:
By comparing images of the sites taken at the same angle at different times of day, they could compare them, and the shifting shadows would reveal the height and shape of objects on the ground (see the video below). When they applied this to the Apollo sites, there were what looked like the flags ... at five of them. The sixth, Apollo 11, had no flag. It looks as though Aldrin was right.
Full disclosure: I've never seen the movie but I have heard about it and seen parodies/riffs on it for years. But based on everything I've read and know about people, I'd say yes - they got it wrong.
So what if they probably let a guilty man go free?
When you consider what would have to be true for all the evidence to be present and yet the kid to NOT be guilty, you can see why most juries would have convicted.
Well Christina Aguilera appears twice and supposedly wears Eau de Hot Dog. Meanwhile Leonardo DiCaprio is busy saving the Earth by not taking showers or using deodorant.
It's hard to believe that a mother would contact a porn producer to sell a home video of her own daughter having sex, until you realize that the mother is Kris Jenner and the daughter is Kim Kardashian. Then it's not hard to believe at all, because that's absolutely something they would do.
Yep. And apparently she got around $300,000 for it.
