Dumbass Of The Day (So Far)

What’s the quickest way to get your ass shot off in our current terrorist infected world? Why that’s easy ... just whip out a pistol and fire off a few shots outside a football stadium right before the game. It doesn’t matter if you’re working with the Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco and are trying to get the attention of a few drunk tailgaters. Some cop will undoubtedly pop a cap in your ass ... just for being stupid.

Officer Killed At Football Game in Fla.
ORLANDO, Fla. (WASHINGTON POST)

A university police officer working with the state to curb underage drinking was shot to death by an Orlando police officer outside the Citrus Bowl Saturday as fans were arriving for a football game, authorities said. Mario Jenkins, a canine officer working with agents of the Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco, was killed, said police Sgt. Troy Williamson of the University of Central Florida. Williamson said Jenkins was wearing street clothes. He did not discuss the circumstances of the shooting.

“You’ve got about 50 police officers and beverage agents who are in complete shock,” Williamson said. Witnesses told the Orlando Sentinel that the incident started when an undercover officer tried to break up a tailgate party. When he encountered resistance, they said, he fired three shots into the air. An Orlando police officer saw the man with the gun and shot him several times, the newspaper said.

Authorities believe a third person was involved, said Barbara Jones, spokeswoman for the Orlando Police Department. Jones did not say whether the person was injured. The shooting occurred before a game between the University of Central Florida and Marshall University, which UCF won. “It’s pretty freaky. You don’t think you would see this at a UCF game,” said junior Nicole Jorgensen, 22.

The Pussification Continues

It has been noted by Kim Du Toit in his venerable essay “The Pussification Of The American Male” that the male population in this country is going to the dogs. Kim has recently taken his blog off-line and gone on hiatus for a time or else I would give you a link to that editorial that strikes at the heart of several things that are wrong in our modern world. We’ve got homosexuals in the military thanks to the liberals and if the ACLU had anything to do with it we’d have them in the Boy Scouts. The American male is being driven undercover, made to look foolish in nearly every advertisement you see and if that don’t beat all, we have recently been given a new word to add to our vocabulary, thanks again to the liberal Left. That word is “metrosexual”.

What is a “metrosexual”? I don’t have a clue. All I know is that I’m probably not one based on what I’ve read. According to the liberal media that probably also means I’m an unreconstructed neanderthal (note to the “cavemen” in the GEICO commercials: I feel your pain). I consider myself to be a rational, intelligent, hard-working male of the species. I love women and am willing to put up with a certain amount of grief from the “fairer sex” in the interests of harmony. I have no “feminine” side though and I have no need to try and get in contact with my sensitive “inner man”. That is all patent bullshit, as far as I’m concerned.

Does all that make me a “sexist pig” (with apologies to Oink)? I don’t think so. All it makes me is a man who believes that blurring of the gender roles is contributing to the downfall of civilization. I believe every man has to make up his mind what he will make of himself, in the context of being a man, not of being part man and part woman or any combination thereof. I know who I am and what I am and that’s all I need to know about myself. I take comfort in the fact that John Wayne and Humphrey Bogart would probably agree with me.

The men described in this story below obviously have other ideas. That’s because they’re not real men. They are “metrosexuals” and seem to be proud of that fact. I wouldn’t give a plugged nickel for any one of them in a street fight though ....

Metrosexual Matrimony
When modern men prepare to wed, many wax, tan and help plan. Here come the “groomzillas”.
(TIME)

By the time Pasquale Pignatelli visited luxury clothier Hickey Freeman for the final fitting of an $1,800 custom-made worsted-wool suit, he had devoted as much time perfecting his wedding outfit as his fiancé had spent selecting her bridal gown. Pignatelli, 29, a cargo salesman, also carefully chose his groomsmen’s and ushers’ outfits and bought white-gold bracelets to accessorize them. He arranged for them to get eyebrow waxings and manicures on the day before his Sept. 18 wedding. “It’s not about what’s superficial,” says Pignatelli of his fastidiousness. “It’s about making this artistic.”

The “bridezillas” who pay assiduous attention to nuptial details haven’t disappeared. But increasingly they’re joined at the altar by “groomzillas,” who care just as much about the particulars of the big day. Whereas a decade ago many men limited their input to the choice of DJ for the reception, growing numbers are now getting involved with everything from seating plans and table decorations to wedding-cake design and keepsakes for guests. Brian Lawrence, 35, of Livingston, N.J., says he’s handling much of the planning for his Oct. 23 wedding. Having picked the site himself, he chose chocolate-dipped biscotti over infused olive oil for the favors. Lawrence wants to share the event, not just attend it. “It’s my wedding just as much as it’s hers,” he says.

The fact that couples are marrying later means that more brides are in established careers that leave less time for wedding planning. Not only are many women too busy to manage all the details themselves, but as cultural expectations about gender roles have shifted, ubiquitous TV images of chivalrous would-be grooms--on shows like The Bachelor, A Wedding Story and Perfect Proposal--have helped redefine the groom’s tasks. According to NPD Research, a New York--based marketing firm, 80% of men are now active co-partners in the wedding-planning process. “I’ve had grooms call me five or six times a day about small details months before their weddings,” says Los Angeles wedding planner Julie Pryor. “I’m finding that grooms are hiring me more often too.”

As men get more involved with their weddings, businesses are wooing them and in the process reinventing some male rituals. Engagement consultants are helping design elaborate proposals. Travel agencies and resorts are offering multiday bachelor-party blowouts. And spas are creating groom packages that include nail treatments, hairstyling and even tanning sessions.

Very Bad News Indeed

Women bypass sex in favour of ‘instant pregnancies’


Wealthy career women in their 30s and early 40s, some of whom have given up regular sex altogether, are turning to “medicalised conception” - despite being fertile and long before they have exhausted the possibility of a natural conception.

Michael Dooley, a gynaecologist, obstetrician and fertility expert, said that in the past five years he has seen a 20 per cent increase in the number of patients seeking “inappropriate or premature” IVF treatment.

“Many of these couples are simply not having sex or not having enough sex,” he said. “Conception has become medicalised. It’s too clinical. There has been a trend away from having sex and loving relationships towards medicalised conception.”

Inapproprate is right!  What in the world are we coming to when there is no time for sex, but you still want to have kids?  Sheesh.  Don’t they know kids take a little time too????

Why?

The Skipper’s post below about Israel’s latest retaliation against Palestine elicited a number of responses and it got me thinking. There have always been groups of people hated or denigrated. When I think of this country’s history, certainly Blacks and Irish come to mind as groups that were hated. But Israel has been hated forever. From the king of Babylon through Hitler and even today, Israel has been the object of scorn. Why? You can see economic or political reasons (or excuses) for hating this group or that group for a season, but Anti-Semitism has been with us for 3,000-4,000 years. Why? What causes a small group of people to be so generally hated? What have they done as a nation that is so generally vile that they are universally denigrated? I’m not talking about events in the last year, but the last couple of thousand years. I have an idea, but want to hear yours first.

Israeli Retaliation

Missile Strike Kills 4 Hamas Militants
GAZA STRIP (AP)

Israel killed four Hamas militants in a missile strike Saturday and moved artillery cannons to the Gaza border, launching what it vowed would be a “crushing” response to a Hamas rocket barrage on Israeli towns. Israel also sealed the West Bank and Gaza, barring all Palestinians from its territory, within hours of the Hamas attack—the group’s first major violence since Israel withdrew from the Mediterranean coastal strip two weeks ago.

Prime Minister Ariel Sharon called his Security Cabinet for a meeting later Saturday to approve the military action, expected to last several days. A large-scale operation appeared unlikely but the timing of the meeting suggested a sense of urgency. The Cabinet session comes as Sharon faces a major leadership challenge in his Likud Party over the Gaza withdrawal, completed two weeks ago. Sharon’s challenger, former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has warned the pullout will endanger Israel, and the barrage of 39 rockets, with five Israelis wounded, could boost his agenda.

The escalation followed an explosion Friday at a Hamas rally at a crowded Palestinian refugee camp that killed at least 15 Palestinians. Witnesses said the blast went off near a pickup truck carrying masked militants and homemade rockets. Hamas blamed Israel and said it fired rockets on Israeli border towns in retaliation. But the Palestinian Authority said the blast was an accident resulting from militants mishandling explosives. It renewed demands that armed groups stop flaunting their weapons.

In its struggle to bring order to Gaza, the Palestinian Authority won agreement from militant groups for a ban on displaying weapons starting late Saturday. Hassan Yousef, a Hamas leader, said the group would abide by the ban. “There will be no military parades in the streets and Hamas weapons will go into the shadows,” he said. Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz met Saturday with the army chief and the head of the Shin Bet security service to formulate Israel’s response. “We have to make it clear to the Palestinians that Israel will not let the recent events pass without a response,” Mofaz said in a statement. “The response needs to be crushing.”

Mofaz ordered large numbers of ground forces to deploy near northern Gaza, from where most rockets have been launched. Security officials said thousands of soldiers have been called up. On Saturday afternoon, Israeli aircraft fired five missiles at two cars in the Zeitoun neighborhood of Gaza City, killing four Hamas militants, according to medics, witnesses and Palestinian radio reports. Nine people were wounded. Palestinian Information Minister Nabil Shaath denounced the strike as an “act of criminal aggression” and accused Israel of trying to destroy a truce that largely has held since February.

In an unprecedented step, Israel also set up five artillery cannons on the Gaza border, guarded by seven armored personnel carriers. Soldiers appeared to be settling in, building a command post and rolling out barbed wire. Israel in the past retaliated for Palestinian rocket fire with airstrikes or ground incursions. Artillery fire is less precise, however, and artillery shells fired into densely populated Gaza could cause many casualties. Israel appeared to be signaling it is determined to stop the rocket fire at any price. At another border staging area, four armored personnel carriers, five tanks and four huge D-9 bulldozers joined a fleet of about 30 armored vehicles that are regularly deployed there.

Friday’s explosion brought a terrifying end to what became the last militant victory celebration of Israel’s Gaza pullout before the weapons ban takes effect. Abbas’ ruling Fatah movement canceled a final rally planned for Saturday. The exact number of casualties from the Jabaliya camp remained unclear Saturday. Doctors at two Gaza hospitals counted 15 dead and 83 wounded, but the Palestinian health ministry put the toll at 17 dead and 140 wounded, possibly due to duplicate hospital registration during the initial chaos. About 10,000 mourners attended prayers for 10 of the dead at a Jebaliya mosque Saturday. After the ceremony, the crowd split into three processions, with Hamas holding a separate march for four of its dead. Gunmen shot in the air, and women watching from balconies threw rice into the crowd.

The deadly rally appeared to put Hamas on the defensive for the first time since the Israeli withdrawal; it also gave Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas greater leverage to enforce the weapons ban. Islamic militants took center-stage after Israel’s withdrawal, holding military-style victory parades, and many Palestinians endorsed the militants’ claim that they had driven Israel out by force. Now, Israel’s reprisals have caused new hardships for Palestinian civilians, who might blame Hamas.

Israel’s indefinite closure of the West Bank and Gaza, imposed Saturday, means thousands of Palestinian laborers won’t be able to reach jobs in Israel. Many Gazans also had hoped for a return to calm after Israel’s pullout and might not be willing to tolerate a new era of airstrikes. Abbas, meanwhile, is under growing pressure to stop the rocket fire, with Israel demanding he deploy his troops in northern Gaza, the favored rocket launching ground. This could force Abbas into confrontations with Hamas that he has been trying to avoid.

Rita Update

Rita Slams Ashore at Tex.-La. Border
(WASHINGTON POST)

Hurricane Rita stormed into Texas and Louisiana at 3:30 A.M EDT, with relentless winds of 120 MPH, sheets of rain and battering waves that flooded coastal communities, uprooted trees and tore apart numerous buildings. Damage reports were scarce at daybreak. But officials said the heavily populated area from Houston to Galveston was in relatively good shape, with blown-out windows in some highrise buidlings, widespread power outages, limited flooding and fires in Galveston being the major issue.

As Hurricane Rita bears down on the Gulf Coast, residents evacuate and local and national officials prepare for the coming storm. Towns hit more heavily, according to first accounts, included Beaumont, Lumberton and Port Arthur in Texas and the area around Lake Charles in Louisiana. Authorities stressed that Rita was continuing to rage, however, in this region’s season of epic weather woe.

The storm, though weakened from a category 3 to a category 2 by friction with land, appeared to be preparing for a mean march inland, all the more damaging because of its slow pace, which could produce as much as 25 inches of rain along the way. Eight inches had already fallen by 8:00 A.M. EDT in cities and towns such as Beaumont. Among the threatened areas was metropolitan New Orleans, where flooding continued Saturday after water gushed over the top of some of the city’s levees.

There were reports of major damage to the Lake Charles, La., airport, the collapse of an overpass on Interstate 110 near Lake Charles, a loose barge in the Houston shipping channel and power lines down across the entire region. A spectacular fire engulfed three buildings in Galveston’s historic downtown and another building collapsed in the same area as Rita raked the island city.

“We have trees across roads. In downtown we have observed several businesses totally destroyed,” Sulphur, La., police department spokesman George Mullican told the Associated Press. “It’s too dangerous to send anyone out right now because of the wind.” In Rita’s path were many of the nation’s largest refineries, but their fate was not yet known. Ed Rappaport, of the National Hurricane Center, said that a storm surge between 5 to 10 feet will remain a concern throughout the day especially to the east of the storm’s center at the Texas-Louisiana border near Sabine Pass, La., and Port Arthur, Tex.

For Real?

imageimageTyra Banks Proves Breasts Are Real on TV
Talk about keeping it real: Tyra Banks underwent a televised sonogram on her new talk show to prove that her breasts aren’t fake.

“I’m tired of this rumor. It’s something that’s followed me forever,” the supermodel said Tuesday on “The Tyra Banks Show.”

After Banks asked the men in the audience to leave, Dr. Garth Fisher from ABC’s “Extreme Makeover” performed a touch test and then the sonogram. He concluded: “Tyra Banks has natural breasts; there are no implants.”

“By no means am I saying a breast implant is a bad thing, but it’s not a choice that I made,” the 31-year-old model said. “But it’s something that a lot of the public ... think that I have, and that’s so frustrating for me.”

Banks, who models for Victoria’s Secret, also displayed how her push- up bra exaggerated her body. However, Banks said she’s not totally real.

“I got fake hair, y’all. I got fake eyelashes.”

The hour-long show was, as Banks declared, “all about breasts!” It also featured lessons on proper fitting and an appearance from a slimmed-down Anna Nicole Smith.

Well, that’s something, I guess smirk

Hurricane Prevention: The Science

Question: Why can’t we seed the clouds or drop a nuke onto a hurricane to slow it down?

Answer: “It would be like trying to move a car with a pea shooter,” said hydrometeorologist Matthew Kelsch of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder. “The amount of energy involved in a hurricane is far greater that anything we’re going to impart to it.” According to the center for atmospheric research, the heat energy released by a hurricane equals 50 to 200 trillion watts or about the same amount of energy released by exploding a 10-megaton nuclear bomb every 20 minutes.

Any more stupid questions?
