An S&G Pot Pourri

Two terrorists were charged in an Oregon court yesterday. These wern't the al Qaeda types, though. They were "ecoterrorists", with ELF and ALF, responsible for a string of arsons in that area including the fire bombing of a meat packing plant and offices of a lumber mill. Can we hope that these disgusting animals will get more than a slap on the wrist?

Speaking of more than a slap on the wrist, the couple who decided to give Wendy's the finger got sentenced yesterday - the wife who was the public face of the fraud got 9 years while her husband (who got the finger from a coworker) got 12. Just think - if they would have taken up raping seven year olds instead they might have gotten away with 60 days!

A couple of studies were realesed earlier this week which, once again, fall into the "no shit, Sherlock" category. The first is about how men seem to take more enjoyment in the misfortune of others than women do. They did this by wiring up their brains and looking for activity. That they even found brain activity in men comes as a complete surprise to many. I think it's pretty clear that they wern't dealing with any of the women I know! The second study says that about a third of all traffic-related deaths are caused by drivers between 15 to 17 years old. Really? Again, a complete surprise! If these people are getting grant money for these kind of studies I really have to come up with something suitably stupid to "study".

The world's largest nuclear-powered vibrator was shut down on Tuesday (all together now - Awww!). Arizone shut down the Palo Verde nuke plant when the cooling pipes started going whoopee after they upgraded the steam generator but not the pipes. Hey, ya can't think of everything, can ya?

And for those of my generation - just in case you didn't feel old already, Little Ricky (Desi Arnaz Jr) turns 53 today. And the lead singer of Kiss, Paul Stanley, turns 54 tomorrow.

Where has the time gone?
