Let’s say you’re a pampered CEO making millions, and you create the most toxic debt known to mankind, debt so poisonous it blows up and crashes the entire US economy, throwing millions of taxpayers like me into the snapping jaws of unemployment and misery.

Hometown Texas fundies accused of rape and murder

A few months ago Micah Moore stood as groomsman in Bethaney Deaton’s wedding.

Old man McCain may have finally gone around the bend

It’s not clear what the WH thought filling Huckleberry and Crusty in on the gaping holes in their vague Obama conspiracy claims over Benghazi would accomplish. It was clear that no matter what was presented it would only be fodder for both Senators’ deep desire to avoid a Teaparty primary challenge*. But this brainless quip may really suggest McCain doesn’t have …

Bigfoot DNA sequenced …

I hope the ellipsis conveys my skepticism adequately. If it doesn’t, my apologies. The article this came from features a scientist, errr of sorts, making that claim.

Meet the Methanogens

The great drying: Mars as it may have appeared billions of years ago on the left and Mars as it appears today far right

Most Americans are emerging bleary-eyed from a tryptophan induced coma today and grudgingly marching back to work after a glorious extended weekend. In this twittering multimedia digital world many stories compete for a slot on our rested minds. The scary looming fiscal cliff and backroom dealings in DC that might fail to ease us down its gentle slope, …

Martian update

The TRUTH is out there. I WANT to believe ...

I’m sorry there is no update. Just lots of speculation. Because of the way it was initially presented to the media and subsequent backtracking by NASA it’s impossible to know if we should be hopeful or cynical:

Mars Curiosity may have found something “Earth shaking”

Screen_shot_2012-11-20_at_4_16_05_PM_620x675

Update: NASA isn’t saying what it is, still. But they have scheduled a presser for 3 Dec. Talk about firing up the rumor mill. By then Fox News will probably have a graphic up showing Obama-esque Martians coming for your guns. Is this it? We don’t know. No one’s saying what it is outside of the …
