The whole process of a horse birth – amazing pictures. I can’t believe that baby horse came out of that mama horse!!
“No more whoppers” commercial works, boosts sales by double digits – I always thought those commercials were fake because I couldn’t imagine people getting that upset over a whopper!
US Map of religions by county – wow I had no idea how many baptists there were!
4 Art masterpieces worth $163M stolen from Zurich museum – with technology nowadays you really have to wonder why these pieces of art aren’t protected better
Anonymous attacks – i think it’s great people are finally taking a stand against Scientology who usually have so much money to throw at lawyers that they will sue anyone who says anything against them.

A happy crater on Mars

I was sure that the commercials were fake as well.

wonder how long the “research” took to get everyone to say what they wanted to hear? That’s crazy.

But it worked!

I read from the bottom up:

-Scientology – I don’t understand why people need to take a stand stand against Scientology? Yeah its weird and all but are they hurting people?

-Religion – I never knew there was another religion other then catholic and jewish people. I mean i KNEW there others but never thought much of it. SO i assumed everybody was mostly catholic then i moved to North Carolina from Pennsylvania and people down here are REALLY REALLY offended by catholics! Very strange. I’m not religious nor claim to follow a religion but i did go to a catholic Sunday school as a child. People are crazy about two things down here religion and college basketball.

-Burger King – I really want a whopper now!!

-Horse Birth – I don’t want a whopper now!!

Do some research, my good above poster, and you will find scientology hurts a great many people. Stupid people, sure, but they’re still technically people.

And do some more research to discover the other religions besides…ahem…”catholic” and “jewish.” You never heard of Protestants…? The biggest religion in the US (52% vs. a mere 24% Catholic)? What do they teach you people in Pennsylvania?

I’d also like to point out that Atheists/secularists are the largest “religious” group next to christians in the U.S., at a whopping 13%, compared to Jews (1.5%) and Muslims (0.5%). Why are we always treated as anathema in the media, when we are a big old slice of the pie? Why is everyone so careful not to offend Muslims and Jews, but can dismiss athiests as non-human? Insidious!

And there is no way those burger king commercial can be real, for this simple reason. The only people who would possibly get that upset over a cheeseburger (besides Andy) all would have to weigh over 10,000 lbs. I’m guessing BK is loathe to show thier actual fatty-fatty-boombalatty customers on film, but there is no way you’re going to convince me that some 25 year old waitress is having a conniption cause you don’t have a whopper anymore.

And thank you for ruining my breakfast with the Horse placenta. Appreciate that.
