Totally Useless Tuesdays

Horrid History

Oct 18, 1945 - The USSR's nuclear program receives plans for America's plutonium bomb, courtesy of secret agent Klaus Fuchs at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Oct 18, 1968 - A police raid nets 168 grains of dope resin in the apartment of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. The couple is fined UKP 150.

Oct 18, 1974 - The original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, based loosely on Ed Gein's story and originally titled "Headcheese," opens in theatres. One critic describes the film as "a vile piece of sick crap," containing "unrelenting sadistic violence as extreme and hideous as a complete lack of imagination can possibly make it." The movie is later banned in Germany and the UK, yet remains as a horror cult classic today.

Totally Useless Tuesdays

To my faithful readers:

I'm beginning something new for your Tuesday reading faire. I get a lot of forwarded e-mails, some of them providing links to really funny or really interesting stuff. So, rather than just tossing these sites into my e-mail trash can after I laugh at them, every Tuesday (or at least until I get sick of doing it) I will provide some of the more interesting and funny sites to you. But first, here's a little sump'n-sump'n for the Fundie in all of us. Enjoy!

Top Ten Signs You're a Fundamentalist Christian

10 - You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of yours.

9 - You feel insulted and "dehumanized" when scientists say that people evolved from other life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt.

8 - You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a Triune God.

7 - Your face turns purple when you hear of the "atrocities" attributed to Allah, but you don't even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in "Exodus" and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in "Joshua" including women, children, and trees!

6 - You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women, but you have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed, came back to life and then ascended into the sky.

5 - You are willing to spend your life looking for little loopholes in the scientifically established age of Earth (few billion years), but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by Bronze Age tribesmen sitting in their tents and guessing that Earth is a few generations old.

4 - You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs -- though excluding those in all rival sects - will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of Suffering. And yet consider your religion the most "tolerant" and "loving."

3 - While modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince you otherwise, some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in "tongues" may be all the evidence you need to "prove" Christianity.

2 - You define 0.01% as a "high success rate" when it comes to answered prayers. You consider that to be evidence that prayer works. And you think that the remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.

1 - You actually know a lot less than many atheists and agnostics do about the Bible, Christianity, and church history - but still call yourself a Christian.

OK, this first link's validity will have to be decided upon for yourself. To any of you commentary-happy folks out there, who like to blast my points-of-view, please understand before clicking on the "comment" button below that this is not necessarily my opinion, I just thought it was interesting. - Was the Pentagon Struck by a Plane, or a Missel?

OK, now for some funny and just plain weird stuff:
Poke the Penguin - Just keep poking. Poke it, dammit! POKE! POKE! POKE!
Floating Woman - this one's just kinda creepy in a sadistic kind of way. You can use your mouse to catch her, and toss her around as you please.
Dancing Paul
Bunny Suicides - This one cracked me up!

I hope I brightened your day with this completely ineffectual information. We now return you to your previously scheduled alien mind probing.
