Amusement of the Day

Here’s a few things that caught and held my attention for a few minutes today.

Mexicans are being encouraged to reclaim a piece of Texas, more than 150 years after they lost the Lone Star state to the United States.

Texan estate agents are heading south of the border to drum up the interest in buying cut-price land and property in the foreclosure-hit state.

The debut of powerful atom-smasher

The most powerful atom-smasher ever built could make some bizarre discoveries, such as invisible matter or extra dimensions in space, after it is switched on in August.

This collider, called the largest scientific experiment in history, is expected to begin test runs in August.

But some critics fear the Large Hadron Collider could exceed physicists’ wildest conjectures: Will it spawn a black hole that could swallow Earth? Or spit out particles that could turn the planet into a hot dead clump?……

….CERN team this month issued a report concluding that there is “no conceivable danger” of a cataclysmic event

Can’t you tell that the lawyers wrote this report? So these scientists have no idea what might happen, but there’s no “conceivable danger”. In other words, there is danger, they just can’t imagine what it might be.

I can’t stand any of the current U.S. presidential candidates in the running, disgusting lying puppets. Today I learned that Obama’s election campaign slogan is “Change you can vote for”. It’s really a pretty loaded and clever sentence 🙂 “change you are allowed to vote for” is another way of putting it (but I’m biased).

Still can’t believe Americans don’t vote directly for candidates. Supposedly un-democratic Russia or just about all ex-USSR member countries have a system where you can have 15 or 20 or whatever number of candidates from numerous parties in existence there. And you vote directly for the party, and directly for the candidate. Not for a representative of the representative, and not one of the two available parties, often having to pick “the lesser of two evils”.
