This happened maybe three or four hours ago about ten miles south of where I'm sitting.

See that dark rectangle there in the middle? That's a semi-trailer from an 18-wheeler. Check out the video.

A good 100 meters of beach dissappeared suddenly in a Baja California Sur beach. Here's a very badly translated version of the news article, but hopefully it does convey the general idea and you get to see the pictures.

apparently there is such a thing as legitimate rape and a woman's body will just reject the rape when she knows it's a legitimate one. we know these things because "doctors" said so... :roll:

I read about that yesterday and my jaw just dropped and I was speechless for a moment. It's incredible to me how someone for whom speaking is a large part of their job, would be so reckless and unthoughtful...and how much of a total moron he is.
A (female) friend and I were discussing this incident last night and neither of us had previously realized how horribly the birth control industry has been lying to women for decades. Our bodies had the knowledge to spontaneously abort this whole time! I'm going to try it tomorrow!...or something.

This was the article I read yesterday

I was listening to On Point this morning at work and they were covering this. The very first thing they did was bring on a doctor to address the science of the claim. Took 30 seconds to get the 7th grade science lesson out of the way, then they started talking about the interesting stuff. End of story? No. On two occasions, I think, people called in and, citing unspecified studies, tried to debunk the doctor who laid out the facts. :o

From a vague, vague snippet I remember from something last year, was that not the Medieval attitude towards thing? A child could only be conceived so long as both parties consented to the birth of a child, so if pregnancy occurs, it's all above board and legal. In fact, more than that, it's the biggest cause of social mobility? Can't get to marry any single heiresses as the King marries them off to his pals? Abduct them, perform a shoddy marriage ceremony, get them pregnant and there you have it, you're bound to them forever and see masses of money coming your way, along with invites to all the best tournaments. For example, in the Fourteenth Century, Elizabeth de Clare (of Clare College, Cambridge and something of a renowned feminist figure) was set to inherit a third of the massive Gloucester lands after her father was killed (very, very painfully) at Bannockburn and the King, Edward II, was planning to marry her off to one of his friends who didn't hold any lands. Then, out of nowhere, Theobald II de Verdun sprints into the castle where she was staying, allegedly abducts her and gets ready to become a major landholder, possibly while making derisory gestures to the King. He then died just before the inheritance came through.

You'd think that sort of thing wouldn't re-emerge 600 years later, though.

If you ever decide you'd like to renovate an old work of art, make sure you go to school and receive the appropriate training. It wouldn't hurt if you had some artistic talent to begin with. Whatever you do, don't just grab some paint and a brush and have at it. :n/

Haha...oh JESUS that's hysterically awful all around. Seriously awful from the side of art preservation, of course.

The BBC Europe correspondent described the painting's current state as resembling "a crayon sketch of a very hairy monkey in an ill-fitting tunic."

They need to get this guy on "So You Think You Can Cook" or whatever the name of the current reality tv cooking show is. I think he's got exactly the kind of competitive spirit that they look for on reality tv!

it's like i said to someone yesterday: can you imagine if he didn't actually dump the remains in the grease trap but instead did a sweeny todd-style "special" after he was done cooking? :barf: :barf: :barf:

Sounds true. I worked a night shift at a linen cleaning plant for a few weeks before going to Canada, and while the facility I worked in (there were two separate buildings) was full of 'international students' of varying nations (I'm pretty certain some of them actually were, but the place was known for not asking too many questions and there was a dramatic police raid a while after I left), the one across the street was entirely Polish. Polish folks also accounted for a little over half the patients of the smoking service when I worked for the NHS. I think Indian is still a more heavily-represented nationality, but I guess it's not reflected in surveys of language.

UK young adults are terrible

So this study says that the UK's young adults are amongst the least literate and numerate in the developed world. The Conservative man says it's Labour's fault because those students were educated under their rule. The Labour man says nuh-uh, because exam results were good at the time. No poopcakes! Your exams didn't measure whether students could read or count!
