Added to the list of things I will never, ever put on my feet.
This has a kind of repulsive fascination.
Something else that made me smile, from celinedeathdion.
There is something about the KKK that sends cold shivers down my spine, no matter how touchy-feely they try to be. In fact, touchy-feely and the KKK go together like a fish and a carriage.
On this day in 1865, the Ku Klux Klan was founded. The Klan, of course, has had a hand in some of the nation’s most infamous acts of racial terror and murder…
But what does the KKK look like today? Photographer Anthony Karen has documented the modern-day Klan in their homes, at rallies, and at Klan gatherings, taking us deep inside a world we would otherwise never see — a world most of us might not even want to know about
“The couple got married the day before hurricane Gustav made landfall in Louisiana in 2008,” Karen says of the newlyweds portrayed here. “It was a traditional Klan ceremony, with vows exchanged in front of a fiery cross, performed at a remote hunting camp in the middle of a nature preserve. The bride was dead-set on taking her wedding portrait with cypress trees in the background, so she put her husband and me on the back of an ATV and took us on a death-defying ride to find the perfect spot.”

While I loathe guns, I love weird.
“Probably” too late? ”Probably” is not good enough. I want to hear “Definitely too late” where the poisonous P is concerned.
‘Not too late’ to join Republican Primary race: Sarah Palin
Tea Party champion Sarah Palin, who has already ruled out a 2012 presidential run, on Monday attempted to dangle her name anew as a possible Republican candidate, although it’s probably too late.
In an interview to air on Fox Business Network’s Follow the Money program, the 2008 Republican nominee for vice president was asked whether she would still consider a run for the White House.
“It’s not too late for folks to jump in,” Palin said. “Who knows what will happen in the future.” (Photo: Lee Seung-Hwan/AFP/Getty Images)
I just saw this on Facebook. Thanks, Christa.
I can’t see that this would make flying any less of a nightmare. It’s not as though people tell the truth in their online profiles. With my luck I’d end up next to the obese online stalker, who’s in training to be a serial killer.
Flying can be a nightmare — just ask Alec Baldwin. But would the ability to select whom you’d be sitting next to make hours of airtime more bearable? That’s the premise behind Dutch airline KLM’s new “meet and seat” initiative, designed to let passengers share Facebook and LinkedIn profiles with the rest of the flight’s passengers beforehand. Ready to fly the friendlier skies?
Another thing that made me go Bleugh.….
If you read one “WTF?!” story about the Iraq War today, make it this one:
I must confess that I cannot come up with an answer to the question posed below.

We may be somewhat short-sighted in asking this, but why would someone want to break this particular record?
Eeek - I ‘m doing cute. Nobody panic. It hardly ever happens - but I lllluuuurrrve pugs.
