Great story, especially for those recoverying from substance abuse.
The headline sounds innocent enough. A loving husband rushing his wife to the hospital so she can deliver their baby. They arrive with only 6 minutes to spare. News Video Link
But, he wasn’t just going 70 in a 55, or even 80 in a 55. HE WAS TICKETED FOR 102 MPH!!! The officer says the driver was putting other peoples lives at risk – uh, YA! I commend the office for escorting the dad-to-be to the hospital when the moron called 911 to tell them he wasn’t pulling over. HE WAS TALKING ON HIS CELL PHONE WHILE DRIVING 102!!!
I watched this video a short time after learning someone we know and her mother are in the hospital after being in a car accident. The driver was killed at the scene.
Hubby says he didn’t think it was a big deal. Dude, next time call for an ambulance and boil some water while you wait.
Have a Merry Christmas from all of us here in Runescape!
Just reminding everyone (like I need to) Christmas is coming!!! So Merry Christmas!!!!!!
Congratulations to the Euless Trinity Trojans for great season. I’m sorry they didn’t win the Championship but Matt and Ethan and Scotty and I enjoyed going to the game. I think Pearland’s trick play (youtube) was bad sportsmanship. Here’s a post I found on a website regarding another trick play:
Under the current interpretation by the NCAA rules committee, these types of actions, designed to make the defense think that a snap is not imminent or that there is some other kind of problem (ie Coach what’s the play, we have the wrong subs, I need the kicking shoe, or any variation thereto) are deemed to be unnecessary theatrics and are therefore unsportsmanlike conduct. NFHS rules agree.”
Right after the play I told Matt I wouldn’t want to be the team that won on that kind of play.
Also, here’s a great video about the diversity at Trinity: Video
From another moron at the AP care of Yahoo! (link expired) :
“Julian Luxford says a newly found note in the margins of an ancient history book contains rare criticism of the supposedly benevolent [Robin Hood].
According to legend, Hood roamed 13th-century Britain from a base in central England’s Sherwood Forest, plundering from the rich to give to the poor.
But Luxford, an art history lecturer at the University of St. Andrews, in Fife, Scotland, says a 23-word inscription in a history book, written in Latin by a medieval monk around 1460, casts the outlaw as a persistent thief.
‘Around this time, according to popular opinion, a certain outlaw named Robin Hood, with his accomplices, infested Sherwood and other law-abiding areas of England with continuous robberies,’ the note read when translated into English, Luxford said.”
Um, I guess the writer was too lazy to look up the work “plunder”. From dictionary.com: “to rob of goods by force, especially in time of war; pillage: plunder a village.”
The government steals from us to give to the poor – maybe history will look back at this time and realize that is wrong too!
First of all, I apologize to my numerous fan’s out there for not posting more often (all five of you).
From my favorite news outlet, Yahoo!, I found an article (link expired) entitled “Climate change even worse than predicted: expert”. There’s no ”s” on there; it’s singular; one; uno. The article goes on to say, ”without decisive action to slow global warming, higher temperatures could ignite tropical forests and thaw the Arctic tundra, potentially releasing billions of tons of carbon dioxide that has been stored for thousands of years. That could raise temperatures even more and create ‘a vicious cycle that could spiral out of control by the end of the century.’
“Wow, a “vicious cycle” – anyone noticed its getting colder? By the way, here’s an article about 32,000 deniers. That’s plural.
From this article: Thai temple fights off encroaching tide as world sea levels rise (link expired)
- “fishermen have cut down mangrove forests”
- “Tourism development, sand mining and damming rivers upstream have also taken their toll”
- “an area naturally prone to coastal erosion”
- “‘The process has been occurring over some time and accelerating with land use changes and local human activity’”
- “Coastal erosion of varying degrees affects 21 percent of Thailand’s coastline”
The above quotes are facts.
Here is a speculation: “Climate scientists say that as global warming heats the Earth up, glaciers and polar ice caps will melt and sea waters will expand, sending oceans rising by at least 18 centimetres (7.2 inches), or possibly a great deal more by 2100.” [emphasis added]
One more arguable “fact”: “World sea levels rose 3.1 millimetres per year from 1993 to 2003, the Nobel-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says.”
So, five factual statements, one speculation, and the supposed fact that the sea has risen the width of 3 dimes and what do we get out of the article?
“I don’t know what happened, but when the experts came they told me it was global warning and melting ice in the North Pole’” and “they argue that because the industrialised world was historically most responsible for global warming, they should contribute generously to a fund to help poor countries adapt to the changing world.”
Oh, now I see – we’re all doomed. Thai for lunch anyone?
Stem cells used to fix breast defects. For the first time, doctors have used stem cells from liposuctioned fat to fix breast defects in women who have had cancerous lumps removed. Well, at least its for a good cause. (article link expired)
