For example, the internal polls showed Romney tied in Iowa and ahead by several points in Colorado and New Hampshire. Romney ended up losing all three states by a little over five points. Almost ten points off for …

Sex crazed demons are stealing your virtue!

And ladies, he's available!

I’m probably late to the party on this, but I just heard it on the Stephanie Miller show and it’s so goddamn funny it’s irresistible. A Christian pub called Charisma Magazine fluffed a former stripper turned wingnut grifter who wrote a book detailing her untoward reliance on demon sex. The swinger-demon community almost turned her …

Ultra massive black hole not easy to explain

Hubble catches a large and small spiral galaxy similar to the respective dimensions of NGC 1277 and our Milky Way. Which one do you think would have the largest central black-hole?

Sometimes I dream that, one day, we’ll be studying what we think is a natural object or event in the universe of incomprehensible scope, only to eventually learn it’s a manufactured item. That didn’t happen today! But it is a nice segue to this interesting cosmic tidbit: astronomers have clocked stars in the nucleus of a …
