My English Lesson For Today – Using The Word Fuck!

Using the word FUCK.

God, I remember this one time at band camp I was having a Pow Wow with my band director because I was experiencing anxiety about being Drum Major and we sat down and said, “I wanna show you something.” We watched this entire thing. After, he says, “Do you know what the moral of this?” I reply “No…” And he retorts with the best phrase I have ever heard a teacher say, “Sometimes you just gotta say fuck it.”

Burger King Sued By Teen Over Alleged Strip Search

According to the teen, A man claiming to be a police officer called the Burger King and said he was conducting an investigation into a stolen change purse. The caller reportedly instructed the store manager to strip search the girl, who was working the cash register, according to the tee.

The manager allegedly complied and took the teen to a back room and ordered her to take her clothes off.

Dogs And People

There are so many reasons why people choose to run with their dogs beyond just knowing that their dogs need the exercise. Unlike most human running partners, dogs don’t ever have meetings that go late. They wouldn’t rather sleep in. They are always ready to go, and are generally willing to cruise at any pace with equal ease. They don’t complain that the weather is bad so they’d rather skip today’s workout. The chance to go for a run is greeted with enthusiasm by our canine companions. The truth is that dogs typically like running, which is yet another commonality between dogs and humans.

Okay, perhaps not ALL humans. (Trisha, for example, who is one of my very favorite humans, has described running as abusive though she is very active both on her farm and with long walks and hikes, which are great joys to her. She thinks it’s great that I like to run and that it makes me happy. Still, every time we room together at a conference and she sees me head out for my morning run, I can’t help wondering if she’s thinking, “Hey, better you than me!”)

Why We Lack Hair On our Body?

I just learned that the lack of hair on our body compared to other apes is not because we needed sweat effectively (and thus outrun prey in mid day), not because of our aquatic lifestyle, not even because of sexual selection or a couple of other theories, but most likely because of neoteny, also called juvenilization.

I Finally Did It! I Lit My Fart On fire!!!


Fart lightning or pyroflatulence is the practice of igniting the gases produced by human flatulence, often producing a flame of a blue hue, hence the act being known colloquially as a “blue angel”, or in Australia, a “blue flame”. The fact that flatus is flammable, and the actual combustion of it through this practice, gives rise to much humourous derivation. Other colors of flame such as orange and yellow are possible with the color dependent on the mixture of gases formed in the colon.

Although there is little scientific discourse on the combustive properties of flatus, there are many anecdotal accounts of flatus ignition and the activity has increasingly found its way into popular culture with references in comic routines, movies, and television; including cartoons.
