quote [ The Arlington Independent School District, which passed on airing President Barack Obama's live classroom address, has announced that some students will be bussed off campus to hear a message from former President George W. Bush on Sept. 21. ]
Yeah... parental permission. That's what this was really about the whole time. Sure.

quote [ Tired of the LIBERAL BIAS every time you search on Google and a Wikipedia page appears? Now it's time for the Conservatives to get our voice out on the internet!
Conservapedia began in November 2006, as the class project for a World History class of 58 advanced homeschooled and college-bound students meeting in New Jersey. ]
I'm thinking the home schoolers bound for colleges on the east coast are going to be a little confused when they find California.

quote [ US President George W Bush has referred to the "war on terror" as "World War III" during a television interview. ]
"Whoops! Did I say that in my out loud voice?"
Video in the extended.

quote [ Obesity Levels in U.S. States Are Grossly Underestimated
Because people tend to provide incorrect information about their weight and height, especially in telephone surveys, the researchers concluded that estimates of obesity in individual states have been too low, by more than 50%. ]
My home state of Texas is keeping the tradition of being bigger than everyone else alive.

I come in the name of Jesus... repeat it after me bitch! ]
Additional stuff of possible interest in extended, including a pyramid in Europe!

quote [ In follow-on work to last year's groundbreaking invention of the world's first single-molecule car, chemists at Rice University have produced the first motorized version of their tiny nanocar. ]
Followup to this post. Soon enough an entirely new RC Car circuit will need to be invented.

quote [ Scientists have discovered fossils of a 375-million-year-old fish, a large scaly creature not seen before, that they say is a long-sought missing link in the evolution of some fishes from water to a life walking on four limbs on land. ]
Unfortunately it'll still take a while before Creationists have to adjust their arguments to dance around this one.

quote [ "South Park" co-creator Matt Stone responded sharply in an interview with The Associated Press Monday, saying, "This is 100 percent having to do with his faith of Scientology... He has no problem — and he's cashed plenty of checks — with our show making fun of Christians." ]
This sucks. I like Isaac Hayes. Given his history though I gotta side with Matt and Trey. Instead of treating it the same as everything else the show (and he himself) has made fun of, he's taking it personally. Respect--[humour] [by wieder@12:29pmGMT] [+10 WTF] [83 comments]

quote [ Harry was one of the first libertarians to speak out after 9/11, taking a strong anti-intervention position at a time when virtually all that could be heard were calls for bombing everyone back into the stone age. ]
No matter what your political alignment, Harry was always a class act, genuine, and approachable. American politics has lost one of the few that brought perspective to the circus in Washington. Fingers crossed Ron Paul's visibility continues to grow.

quote [ If you thought al Qaeda or Iraqi insurgents were the major threats facing America, Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) says you're wrong. According to Dent, "The growing availability of methamphetamine is a form of terrorism unto itself." ...so they've attached surveillance, "smuggling", and "money laundering" provisions to the reauthorization of the USA PATRIOT Act. ]
No comment is really necessary. Both parties in Congress remind me of grade school students running for Student Council.
