"...During the commute, the captain inexplicably left the cockpit and began walking the cabin, ranting about bombs and al Qaeda. At that point, a former corrections officer and six other passengers restrained him..."
"...the captain called reporters from his hospital room and blamed his emotional collapse on his realization that the United States had been taken over by gay terrorists plotting to banish Christians to the moon -- something he learned during the non-stop media coverage of the Republican primaries.[emphasis added]"
That's not a cigar in this giraffe's mouthit's a bone. Apparently, although giraffes mostly eat the leaves of thorny trees such as acacias, they occasionally supplement their diets with minerals from other sources, such as bones they find on the ground.
UPDATE: Lewis Hine was a photographer who began working for the National Child Labor Committee (NCLC) in 1908 documenting working children.
Joe Manning ferreted out the stories behind this picture, and many others:
"As I type the opening words of this story, it has been five years to the month since I saw this picture for the first time, in August of 2006. It was posted on a photo blog I ran across while searching for information about Lewis Hine."
The children and families depicted in the child labor photographs of Lewis Hine were unwittingly caught in the act of making history, but we know almost nothing about them. The pictures were taken for a noble purpose, but a century later, they have become an enormous photo album of the American family. By finding out what happened to some of them, and by revealing the photos to their descendants (most descendants are unaware of them), we are dignifying their lives, and the lives of everyone that history has forgotten.
Shows where midgets compete with animals. Where midgets compete with each other. Fox’s other programming (which may or may not involve midgets). The network has finally come to grips with its lowest-common-denominator nature.
"This year’s competitions (and let's all pray that Man Vs. Beast 3 is on the Fox horizon) featured...a relay team of 4 midgets racing against a camel."
"...[the Beast] doesn’t try, for the simple reason that ...It doesn’t know it’s in a competition. That’s why greyhound races require fake rabbits and horse races require jockeys. And why that camel race was only a race once the camel decided it liked to chase midgets."
Male clownfish change gender after losing the female in their school. That means that for the entirety of Finding Nemo, Nemo’s dad was turning into Nemo’s mom.
Not only are they low, but they are lower than any time since 1965.
