Florida is a separate universe

I had a horse one time, that got the same treatment.

LAUDERDALE-BY-THE-SEA, Fla. (AP)—A man with car trouble is in trouble after shooting his 1994 Chrysler LeBaron.

John McGivney, 64, pumped five rounds from a .380-caliber semiautomatic into the hood, Broward County sheriff’s deputies said Tuesday.

When the property manager at his apartment complex asked what he was doing, McGivney said, “I’m putting my car out of its misery.” He tucked his gun in a pocket and went back inside.

Deputies responding to a report of gunshots Friday ordered McGivney to come out of his apartment and arrested him on a misdemeanor charge of discharging a firearm in public. He posted $100 bail Saturday.

McGivney said the car has been giving him trouble for years and has “outlived its usefulness.” He called the shooting “dumb” and worries he will be evicted. But he doesn’t regret it.

“I think every guy in the universe has wanted to do it,” McGivney told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel on Tuesday. “It was worth every damn minute in that jail.”

More News from Tomorrow Land

New Zealand is one of the most beautiful places on the planet, and hotdamn, they know how to party down too. Nitrous Oxide at a 13 year old’s birthday party!

A father providing nitrous oxide for his 13-year-old’s birthday party is one example of the substance’s widespread reach into New Zealand society, a leading drug counsellor says.
Alcohol and Drug Association manager Cate Kearney said the story of the birthday party “treat” came to light after the father called her organisation’s hotline to check ways to provide “safe and responsible” access to nitrous oxide – or nos – at the teen party.

Our Kiwi correspondent from the future, Illegitimi Non Carborundum, writes all the articles on his blog, while under the influence of Nitrous. Visit tomorrow, today, for an alternative view of reality.

If a tree falls in the forest……

I have been having email troubles this morning.  Could not log on with Outlook nor the host provider’s web mail system.  I just received the following email from them:

Good morning happy ************ mail users! About 30 minutes ago, the mail clusters that handles
your mail started to have problems.  We’re in the process of investigating the issue, and hope to
have it resolved within the next hour. We apologize for the problems this cause.

Does it strike anyone else as odd that they would send out an email alert about email being down, or is it just me?

Darwin Awards Update

We are awash in a cesspool of stupidity.

SIX people were killed and nine seriously injured when a train smashed into a crowd of people enjoying the nightlife in the Indonesian capital in the early hours of today, a railway official said.

The victims were visitors to food and drink stalls that only open at night at the side of railway tracks east of Jakarta, said Mr Rachmadi, head of Greater Jakarta operations at national railway company Kereta Api.

A company spokesman said the victims did not hear the train coming because of music blaring from the stalls, which offer night entertainment for people on low incomes.

“Some of those sitting on the railway track were also drunk so they did not realize the train was coming,” Akhmad Suyadi was quoted by the state Antara news agency as saying.

The passenger train was travelling from the central Java city of Semarang to Jakarta.

START THE DARWIN AWARDS 2005

This was in my in box this morning (thanks Robert.) It is funny and mostly true.

The following mind-boggling attempt at a crime spree in Washington appeared to be the robber’s first (and last), due to his lack of a previous record of violence, and his terminally stupid choices:

1. His target was H&J Leather & Firearms. A gun shop specializing in handguns.

2. The shop was full of customers - firearms customers.

3. To enter the shop, the robber had to step around a marked police patrol car parked at the front door.

4. A uniformed officer was standing at the counter, having coffee before work.  Upon seeing the officer, the would-be robber announced a hold-up, and fired a few wild shots from a .22 target pistol. The officer and a clerk promptly returned fire, the police officer with a 9mm Glock 17, the clerk with a .50 Desert Eagle, assisted by several customers who also drew their guns, several of whom also fired, The robber was pronounced dead at the scene by Paramedics. Crime scene investigators located 47 expended cartridge cases in the shop. The subsequent autopsy revealed 23 gunshot wounds.

Ballistics identified rounds from 7 different weapons. No one else was hurt in the exchange of fire. Here we are at the beginning of March and we already may have the 2005 winner of the Darwin Award.  This guy is going to be hard to beat.

Food Pyramid and Fat Folks

They have demolished the old food pyramid and built this new one. The new one has a staircase on it so you can run up and down and melt pounds of unsightly lard off of your fat ass. There is no word as to how many slaves died in the construction of the pyramid.

Good news for old fat guys everywhere…

People who are overweight have a lower risk of death than those of normal weight, federal researchers are reporting today in an unexpected outcome to the newest and most comprehensive study of the impact of obesity.

Die you skinny little bastards!

A Zebra and Her Stripes…

....are rarely seperated.

Found a link on Kim’s site that I had to read to fully digest.

Carrie Lukas, who is the director of policy at the Independent Women’s Forum, writes for the National Review in Money Isn’t Everything

Hillary is returning to her liberal roots by joining the high priestesses of feminism in marking “Equal Pay Day.” According to feminist calculations, the first four months of 2005 were spent making up for last year’s wage gap; today, women supposedly will have finally earned as much as men in 2004. She will introduce legislation to “fix” this gap and thereby end a grave injustice.

So, the fact that women, as a group, make lifestyle choices that take them out of the workforce for a decade, keep them from traveling as much, and other factors, don’t play into her little fantasy, so we’ll just ignore that.

“There ought to be a law, dammit!”, is so often the cry of the left.  You don’t like what your neighbor is doing?  Pass a law.  You don’t like your working conditions?  Pass a law.  Damn.  If they would just stop “fixing” things, my life would be so much simpler.

By fixating on the red herring of discrimination, many women fail to make adjustments that would fatten their paychecks. Dr. Farrell outlines how women can increase earnings, but notes that higher pay often comes at a price — be it greater physical risk, more time on the road, or more hours in the office.

Even if most women aren’t willing to sacrifice flexibility or comfort for money, knowing that the deck isn’t stacked against them is important. The phony wage-gap debate perpetuates the lie that lower pay is nearly always evidence of sexism. In reality, pay differences may simply reflect different priorities — ones in which women can be proud. Money isn’t everything. A prison guard may earn more than an elementary-school teacher, but most teachers aren’t looking to trade places.

Again, just ignore the unpleasant fact and let’s all gather around, shoulder-to-shoulder, and sing songs in unity for our common plight.  Sheesh.

Hillary Clinton’s legislation would attempt to eliminate these tradeoffs by putting a Washington bureaucracy in charge of overseeing how wages are determined. Under the new regime, employers would have to pay equal salaries to “equivalent” jobs — however bureaucrats choose to define that — and businesses would likely respond by offering fewer employment options. Senator Clinton’s fellow lawyers, who will exploit the system to launch thousands of lawsuits, will be the only real winners from the thicket of red tape.

Yup, the law of unintended consequences.  We’ll pass a law to “fix” the non-problem, and it will create two more problems that need fixing.

I need a martini.

Good News & Bad News

The good news is I just found out that my favorite comic strip is being made into a movie for release in May, 2006. The even better news is that Bruce Willis is doing the voice of “R.J. Raccoon”. The bad news is that William Shatner is doing one of the voices. The best news of all time would be if Shatner is doing the voice of “Zippy The Air-Head Squirrel”. Or maybe Whoopi Goldberg would be better suited for that part. Hmmmmmm ....

Launch photon torpedos, Mr. Sulu ....

Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
