Strange News: Great Headlines

How to jumble everything up in as few words as possible?

You can count on media headlines to do that for you.

And local newspapers have always been a superb source of great headlines.

Here's a vintage compilation.

"Behind-your-back" Bigotry

I invited a friend to have dinner with me at an Indian restaurant this evening. On our way to the restaurant, we saw two men standing face to face in close proximity to one another. My first thought was that they were in the midst of some type of confrontation. The thought of that made me a bit uneasy. To my surprise, one of the men reached out and grabbed the hand of the other man and said "You know I love you right? It's going to be okay", and then he kissed the guy on the cheek and gave him… Continue

Dear President Bush: Understanding Leviticus

This is a little outdated now I suppose but I thought it was funny and thought I'd share....



Dear President Bush,

Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from you and understand why you would propose and support a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage. As you said "in the eyes of God marriage is based between a man a woman." I try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone…

Die Christian Scum - NSFW

Now, now; everyone calm down. I don't say it in the same manner a christian might; they actually mean it.



 

Saying that, I think it is a sound and reasonable thought that christians would understand, and if the title was, "Die Atheist Scum,", embrace. Face it, christians have no problem with killing. It is part of their life, their way of showing…

Dangerous fallacies

In the late 70's I was living in a rooming house in London supposedly taking a year off university.



There, I had a boyfriend, John, who also lived there(a true londoner).... At some point, my funds dwindled and I found a job. Not much later, John became Ocean... I was a little distanced from him and had another boyfriend.



My relationship with John had its up and down. But one evening, a momentous evening in my life, he started talking to me about this society he has…

Suckers

Any day you take a ride, you'll probably encounter a local fish monger. No, not someone butchering the seas to keep your belly happy, but the dull-eyed driver going ten miles under the speed limit with a fish symbol on the back of his car.



Amazing how they try so hard to preserve their life when they have such a cool place waiting for them. You'd think…

Purpose, Favor and Free Will

Supposedly we are made in god's image and every one of us has a purpose in life that HE has already mapped out. A statement I've heard many times, in different incarnations.



God's muddled method of controlling his subjects, hiding this, hiding that, hiding himself. Saying this, but doing the opposite. On and on the game continues.



But you have…

Thrillers afficinados (maybe something other)

I guess it maybe like a drug addiction I read mostly thrillers or mysteries or detectives....I love it and if after 50 pages I still don't get into the story ,then I go on to another book... (There are so many...)

When in my title I wrote (and maybe somethintg other)  I wasn't talking about killing my neighbour even if she annoys me......!!!!!!; what I really  meant is that one can glean lots of information without actually being too conscious of it and I guess it can broaden one's…

Bush the Liberator

The spin is on once again. How can we make a failed presidency, possibly the worst in U.S. history, look a bit less pathetic. Hey, tie it into current news like he is still president!

That dirty G-word

I don't have too much to say about this because it is so absurd, but we all know how much suffering this word and idea has caused in our short history, and is still causing even now. Control, brainwash, indoctrination, manipulation, deceit, torture, abuse, death. It brought nothing of value to this world and its inhabitants and I think it is time for it to get the fuck out of here once and for all, and it is only up to us to accomplish this. It is time to draw the line and separate…

Barbara Nadel

Hi,

I just finished a book wrtten by Barbara Nadel, A noble killing; I love all her books . The main protagonist is a turkish inspector who’s deep into solving murders. (I basically read thrillers-murder books ands I devour them…), he is a non-believer but respects those who are (believers I mean…). Her serie about detective Ikmen is based in Turkey and takes very much into account what’s going on there; even with her first novel, and the others like the one through the earthquake that… Continue

Evolution for Dummies

Every so often one of our members expresses a thought on evolution as a given. A simple thought that just happens to be stated without much background.



For all the intelligent people here, it is such a given that they don't spend much time on it. You are so into the subject that you know all the details, details that excite you, but details that will…

Potholes

As a child, I noticed my elders had various ailments. Skin blemishes, scars; all the good stuff aging has to offer. I heard their stories, their desires and their sadness. You hear the stories about hopes dashed and goals that were attained.



Much information I filed in my young brain, but never really concentrated on. We all think that our lives will be…
