You'll get the AOSQDD dregs and you'll be grateful for them. Just consider this pre-season practice for the camps.

Global Warming Climate Change Getting a New Name: 'Climate Disruption'

Of course whatever you call it hasn't been happening for almost two decades now.

When the Going Gets Tough, Obama Goes Birther

Most people think of Obama as inept but likable; I think inept and mean-spirited is closer to the truth. As he has so often recently, Obama attacked Fox News. He seems to think that he might have had a successful presidency, if only Fox had gotten with the program:
Let's face it, Fox, you will miss me when I'm gone. It will be harder to convince the American people that Hillary was born in Kenya.
The only person trying to keep birtherism alive is Obama, as it suits his purposes to portray his critics as a bunch of wingnuts. But Fox News was not the source of birtherism, Obama himself was. For close to twenty years, his official literary bio said that he was born in Kenya. Also-this is pure speculation - I suspect the main reason why Obama's college and law school records are a state secret is that he applied as a foreign student born in Kenya, and received favored treatment as such.

Did They Learn Nothing from Poltergeist?!

A 4,500-year-old American Indian burial ground-one of the richest and best preserved found in California in the past century-has been paved over for a multimillion dollar housing development in the Bay Area. And archeologists are pissed.

Of course it's my understanding that ghosts fizzle out after a few hundred years. And archeologists can be kept at bay by elaborate man-traps, ancient religious cults, and strictly enforced government regulations. So they're good.

UN Committee To Target Islamic Kidnapping, Rape And Torture

As if. Nope, they're investigating the Vatican over torture and abuse instead.

They were required to analyze information from multiple, credible sources.

The 18-page assignment instructions included three sources that students were told to use, including one that stated gassings in concentration camps were a "hoax" and that no evidence has shown Jews died in gas chambers.

"With all this money at stake for Israel, it is easy to comprehend why this Holocaust hoax is so secretly guarded," states the source, which is a attributed to a webpage on biblebelievers.org.au. "In whatever way you can, please help shatter this profitable myth. It is time we stop sacrificing America's welfare for the sake of Israel and spend our hard-earned dollars on Americans."

The other sources were from the websites history.com and about.com.

U-2 Causes Widespread Shutdown of US Flights Out of LAX

Because the traffic control computers weren't able to handle something flying so high and so fast. Luckily the rumored Aurora plane isn't even detectable by LAX radars.

The Vice Guide to Adulthood

HYGIENE

It is quite possible that your parents didn't teach you certain things about hygiene while you were growing up. It's quite possible that you don't even have human parents, and were perhaps born from a turd similar to the ones you continuously leave in the bowl without flushing after visiting a public restroom, like a DNA stink-abortion for the next person to discover. Hate to break the news to you, pal, but if you haven't managed to tackle how to properly deal with your fecal waste, everything else in life is going to seem like an impossible challenge.

Amen brother.

Where Doritos Came From

Well the idea came from a dumpster.

In 1955, not long after Disneyland opened in Anaheim, California, the Frito-Lay snack company opened "Casa de Fritos," a Mexican-style restaurant in Disneyland's Frontierland. Casa de Fritos got its tortillas from Alex Foods, a local tortilla factory.

One day, a salesman from Alex Foods noticed that Casa de Fritos was dumping stale tortillas in the trash. He gave the kitchen a tip: instead of trashing the stale tortillas, cut them up and fry them.

Some time later, Archibald Clark West, a marketing executive for Frito-Lay, stops by Casa de Fritos and encounters the repurposed snack. He falls in love with them, contracts Alex Foods to produce them, and in 1964 the Dorito is born.
