How do you top making national news for bigotry? Trying getting people to “Give Up (Eating) Hamburgers to Stop Climate Change.”
For loony lefty syndicated columnist David Sirota, it’s all just another day at the office. Sirota made national news for his bizarre and bigoted hope that the Boston bomber would turn out to be “a white American.”
Fresh off that fiasco, Sirota has turned his sights to changing the climate by changing America’s diet. According to [...]
A discussion on how today the world as we know it changes forever.
Specifically looking to the tensions over NK, which also tags through extension Russia/ China/ Iran/ Pakistan, but we also must take into account the on-going tensions with US/ Israel and Iran/ Syria, which also tags Russia/ China/ Pakistan, as well as underlying tensions between India/ Pakistan, which tags in US/GB/NATO/Russia/ Iran/ NK/ China.
**IF** Nk does not follow through [...]
David Cameron made a well-received intervention here in Davos on his priorities for the Group of Eight, which he chairs this year, but inevitably the focus of attention has been the speech he made about Europe, before leaving London.
He was wise to lay his egg at home, as it would have been in the lead balloon category here. Davos Man, and his fur-clad trophy wife, are europhiles, almost to [...]
Cops have been caught egging a house in a small Massachusetts town, according to new reports out this week, sparking outrage at their inappropriate behavior.
The incident saw a number of off-duty police officers caught as they gathered outside a superior officer’s home with dozens of eggs. They then proceeded to “egg” the house.
The three off duty cops were caught at about 2 a.m. local time on Dec. 11, after Framingham [...]
THE world’s former fattest man celebrates yesterday — after shedding an astonishing FORTY-SIX stone.
Paul Mason lost two-thirds of his 70st bulk following a gastric bypass op on the NHS that reduced his stomach to the size of an egg.
The ex-postman, of Ipswich, Suffolk, now weighs 24st — but says his target is 14 to 15st.
Last night determined Paul admitted “I still have a way to go” as he vowed to [...]
If you’re still trying to scrape off a Mitt Romney bumper sticker, consider Eric Hartsburg face before you complain.
Hartsburg, of Indiana, got Mitt Romney’s campaign logo permanently tattooed on the side of his head for a cool $15,000 in October.
‘Totally disappointed, man,’ Hartsburg, 30, told Politico. ’I’m the guy who has egg all over his face, but instead of egg, it’s a big Romney/Ryan tattoo. It’s there for life.’
Even though he’ll be [...]

Anxious? Yes. Election Day is going to be an especially long day, for all Americans. Hours are tick-ticking slooowly. And if you just watch the latest news all day you’ll have even more anxiety.
What you need is to distract yourself every now and then throughout the day. Yes, distract. Think about something other than who’s going to win.
Seriously, shift your thinking. Away [...]
Mr Rogers, who co-founded the Quantum Fund with George Soros, believes that America’s central bank is secretly printing money to avoid “getting egg on their face again” after previous attempts to kickstart the faltering economy with $2 trillion of QE failed.
“I do not know if they [the Fed] will announce it,” he told India’s Economic Times. “I know they are going to print more money. They already are. If you [...]
Hyperinflation is always a possibility for any national government or central bank. If a national government is running massive deficits, it can call upon the central bank to buy treasury bills or treasury bonds with newly created money. This digital money is transferred to the treasury, which then spends the money into circulation.
There have been cases of hyperinflation in the past which have become legendary. The most famous of all [...]
European researchers said Thursday they had developed the world’s first real-sized, five-fingered robotic hand able to grasp and manipulate objects with human-like dexterity.
Getting robots to manoeuvre objects with precision has posed many problems for engineers in their quest to build humanoid machines to serve as domestic aides, emergency rescuers or factory workers.
Industrial robotic “grippers” already exist that are able to grasp objects and move them but are unable to handle [...]
One in nine allergic reactions to food among children is not accidental – with children deliberately being exposed to danger, it emerged today.
Research has found parents and other caretakers are purposefully giving their children known food triggers.
The authors of the study, published in the journal Pediatrics, said they are not completely sure why it’s happening.

ABILENE (CBSDFW/AP) - A Texas woman who discovered an egg the size of a baseball in her chicken coop was even more surprised by what she found when she cracked it open: another full egg.
Cookie Smith of Abilene found what she calls the “mutant super egg” in her three-hen, two-nest coop earlier this week.
“I just died laughing when I saw it,” she said. “I brought it in to show (husband) Leonard, [...]
Fertility doctors have long puzzled why only one per cent of the 300million sperm released by a man during sex manages to reach their partner’s uterus, while just a few dozen reach the egg.
Now British scientists think they have the answer – it’s all down to an appalling sense of direction. The findings could help scientists created more effective fertility treatments.
A joint study by the University of Warwick and University [...]

Test-tube babies have higher rates of birth defects, and doctors have long wondered: Is it because of certain fertility treatments or infertility itself? A large new study from Australia suggests both may play a role.
Compared to those conceived naturally, babies that resulted from simple IVF, or in vitro fertilization — mixing eggs and sperm in a lab dish — had no greater risk of [...]
China Urine Eggs
Can you imagine being a tourist, not knowing much chinese and buying from one of these thinking it is a normal egg
British women are to be given the chance of delaying motherhood by freezing parts of their ovaries.
They will be able to ‘bank’ their ovarian tissue in their twenties and early thirties, when it is most fertile, and have it re-implanted years later.
Fertility specialists are planning to open the first clinic in the country to offer the procedure, which could cost as much as £16,000, within the next six months.
Since having [...]
From Jeff Clark in Growth Stock Wire:
Odds are, by this time next month the S&P 500 will be sharply lower.
Stocks have somehow managed to shrug off European debt concerns, ignore a host of negative technical indicators, and continue to defy gravity by marching even higher. So it seems silly to keep harping on how vulnerable the market is to a swift and severe correction. Frankly, I’m growing tired of washing the [...]
From Eric Peters Autos:
There are two main schools of thought when it comes to dealing with a cop during a traffic stop (or “safety” checkpoint). One of them is disgustingly obsequious, unworthy of a free people. The other is absolutely correct – in principle – but elements of it, if followed to the letter, can and probably will lead to unnecessary trouble.
The first school says Yes Sir and No Sir [...]
Is Lady Gaga really “Born this Way”? After a spectacular first week of sales, with almost 1.2 million copies of her CD and downloads sold, the second week shows a big fall off. “Born this Way” sold only 169,387 copies last week. That’s a drop of 85% from the first week. It’s important to remember that 440,000 of those first week sales were only for [...]
A Phoenix woman on Monday gave birth to a baby boy she carried just outside her womb.
Doctors at Banner Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix delivered the child through surgery Monday morning. Both the baby and the mother, Nicolette Soto, 27, were doing fine, said Rainey Daye Holloway, a hospital spokesperson.
Doctors said the pregnancy is rare. They were still determining where the egg first implanted itself and [...]
The internals once again shook their heads at the action of the futures. We did not experience much for positive tick again today, but did see one negative tick of significance which did mark a short-term bottom in the stock descent. The reality, however, is clear. On balance the tick today was net negative, yet the prices had a net gain. [...]
Food and other consumer non-discretionary items have been trending up. RE taxes, numerous fees, etc. have been going up. These are baseline expenses in everyone’s budget, and that budget is getting squeezed due to inflation in these areas.
On the other hand, deflation is occurring in real estate and other discretionary items as reduced demand results in heavier discounts.
Here’s a nice example from Karl Denninger:
Notice it’s smaller but Now Stronger!
