I'm so naive . I'm so shocked!!! I sure as hell didn't see this happening. What about you?

Days after President Joe Biden bypassed the congress to approve a $6-billion ransom payment to Iran, the Mullah regime has taken another Western national hostage as part of its ongoing ‘hostage diplomacy,’ media reports say.

On Saturday, Iran’s Islamic Guard (IRGC) disclosed that it has taken yet another Westerner in its custody, less than a week after Biden White House agreed to pay $6 billion for the release of 5 U.S. hostages. The media reports did not specify if the captive is a U.S. or a European national.


When you reward evil, you reap evil.

Happy Birthday US Consitution.

On September 17, 1787, members of the Constitutional Convention signed the final draft of the Constitution.

This motion, supported by George Mason and Elbridge Gerry, was voted down and the Constitution was adopted.

Investigative journalism at its finest.

Irish TV station Virgin Media News broadcasted a news segment on Wednesday about a "mysterious crater" at a local beach north of Dublin, which it said could be evidence of a meteorite violently impacting with the sand in a "once-in-a-lifetime cosmic event."

The smoking gun: a mysteriously charred rock in the middle of the almost perfectly circular hole.

Jerry Rivers and Al Capone's vault it is not.

University students are learning math up close and personal.

The board of West Virginia University voted to make campus-wide cuts to academic programs and faculty positions after falling into a $45 million budget downswing. This comes after students urged the campus to "stop the cuts."

The Associated Press reported that the university is set to cut 28 of its majors, amounting to about 8% of the total majors offered.

The term, "Foxy Bitch" takes on a new meaning.

The world’s first confirmed dog-fox hybrid was found in the Brazilian wilderness.

In 2021, the animal, a female, was hit by a car and taken to a veterinary hospital for treatment.

The staff at the hospital were unable to determine whether the animal was a dog or a fox, as it had physical characteristics of both species.

During his last years Williams's consumption of alcohol, morphine and painkillers severely compromised his professional life. Williams died aged 29 on January 1, 1953. via thisdayinmusic.com
