Ladies & Gentlemen, I give you, the 2012...
Michelle Bachmann: "Don’t misunderstand. I am not here bashing people who are homosexuals, who are lesbians, who are bisexual, who are transgender. We need to have profound compassion for people who are dealing with the very real issue of sexual dysfunction in their life and sexual identity disorders.” (2004)
Ron Paul: "The rate of AIDS infection is on the increase again. From the gay point of view, the reasons seem quite sensible. First, these men don't really see a reason to live past their fifties. They are not married, they have no children, and their lives are centered on new sexual partners... because sex is the center of their lives, they want it to be as pleasurable as possible, which means unprotected sex. Third, they enjoy the attention & pity that comes with being sick." (1995 in a newsletter)
Rick Perry: "I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a Christian, but you don't need to be in the pew every Sunday to know there's something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can't openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school. " (2011 in a campaign ad)
Mitt Romney: "I should tell my story. I'm also unemployed." (2011 while speaking to unemployed people in Florida. Romney's net worth is over $200 million.)
Newt Gingrich: "She's not young enough or pretty enough to be the wife of the President. And besides, she has cancer." (1994, about his first wife)
Rick Santorum: "Is anyone saying same-sex couples can’t love each other? I love my children. I love my friends, my brother. Heck, I even love my mother-in-law. Should we call these relationships marriage, too?" (2008)
Michelle Bachmann: "Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas." (2009 during a debate)
Mitt Romney: "PETA is not happy that my dog likes fresh air." (2006, when questioned about driving 12 hours with his dog in a cage strapped to the top of his car)
Tests Cast Doubt on F.A.A. Restrictions on Kindle... →
Gadgets are tested by monitoring the number of volts per meter coming off a device. The F.A.A. requires that before a plane can be approved as safe, it must be able to withstand up to 100 volts per meter of electrical interference. When EMT Labs put an Amazon Kindle through a number of tests, the company consistently found that this e-reader emitted less than 30 microvolts per meter when in use....
animalsbeingdicks: As it turns out, cats aren’t nearly as good at parkour as dogs. *Like parkour with dogs, but with cats, because cats purr, so y’know…purrkour? Kiss my ass.
White Noise from the Starship Enterprise! →
Here is 24 hours of the main engine sound from The Next Generation. It also happens to be the best white noise ever. I am thinking of sleeping to this.
animalsbeingdicks: Professor Twix didn’t like Big Brother watching his every move, especially in the bathroom. Caturday!!
I got diagnosed with ADHD.
houseofcards93: oh yay. Now I can actually concentrate and lose weight at the same time… /sarcasm The meds can be pretty nasty over time. Good luck! Let me know if you have any questions about ADHD or treatments. I’ve been diagnosed for 16 years and I’m studying it in some depth as part of my major.
Brain Brew: ADHD & Autism: The Things Your Doctor... →
brainbrew: To be fair, most doctors have no clue anyway so of course they couldn’t have told you. The things that I discuss here I have used to help a lot of parents of not only Autisitc children, but those who have ADHD, and Aspergers. Many of the nutrient and supplement recommendations will work well in…
City of Bridges: nealcrosby replied to your photo:... →
cityofbridges: nealcrosby replied to your photo: In all of its glory - multi-sided dice and wooden… As opposed to single sided dice? :) Also, you are THAT kinda gamer? I have been known to be… I heart you, smart ass. As opposed to traditional six-sided dice. I haven’t played D&D in ages, but those purple glitter dice (4-sided to 20-sided) are actually one of my favorite gifts I’ve ever...
