Stuflf below the fold

Using the HIV virus (modified) to stop Leukemia?


Spain letting the Jews back?

Uh, didn't Franco do this awhile back, without the fanfare?

and although the Spanish treatment of Jews was terrible, it is also trumpeted by the British, who conveniently ignore their own persecution of their Catholic minority, not to mention repeated Irish genocides. 
 or the ethnic cleansing of the Scottish highlands...

The NYTimes mentions another item that wasn't discussed during the election: That the new healthcare bill will raise taxes.

They eat horses, don't they?

Ever wonder what happens to retired race horses? They get e't... but now, maybe not:

The meat of American racehorses may be too toxic to eat safely because the horses have been injected repeatedly with drugs. 

and they criticize Pinoys for eating dog...

If you are reading this, thank Ada:  Google remembers Ada Lovelace... bio here.

Another day, another earthquake

again, in the south, so it didn't bother us.

Death by skin whitener?

actually, I wrote about the problem awhile back on BNN


The really big news in the Philippines: Pacman's knockout.

Heh. His mom blames it on his becoming Protestant and spending all his time in bible studies (instead of gambling, drinking and wenching) so he was too busy to train properly.

One is reminded of Flannery O'Connor's quip that the Catholics are happier because we isolate all our religious nuts in monasteries so that normal people are left alone.

Speaking of nuts, not only can you choose between Spielburg's lofty and boring Abraham Lincoln and Abraham Lincoln Vampire hunter, 

But now you can see Bill Murray play FDR and entertain the queen (!) and get a new mistress (no, not the queen).

My question is why did Missy put up with the shennanigans, since she was there...or maybe the prudes are right and Missy was a platonic friend and secretary. (one is reminded of the quip: Never make your secretary your mistress. It's easy to find a mistress, but a good secretary is hard to find).

And if that comedy isn't enough, well just wait for FDR American BADA^^^.
