The Victorian flea chariot:
THE Middle East Media Research Institute reports that Hamsa has got bored with all the rockets and the rhetoric and the hatred and the fighting. Where are the women?
The following excerpt was broadcast on Hamas’ Al-Aqsa TV on January 7, 2009 at 3:00 am. Presumably, the Hamas technician on duty got bored with the live image of Gaza at night, and decided to view other satellite channels, focusing on the Polish erotic channel Patio TV.
What he did not realize was that the images were being aired live on Al-Aqsa TV. This went on for about six minutes; the image of Gaza at night was then restored.
C’mon Hamas, let the women have a go at being in charge. Whaddayasay?
JESUS is a great ski buddy. He never gets your lost. Here’s to extreme sports with Jesus:
AS the rockets fire and the troops fight, we wonder what life is like in Jerusalem and what Palestinians and Israelis are all about, and how tolerance is not a one-side quality:
In the summer of 2006, Jerusalem was to host, for the first time in history, the World Pride events, which were to culminate in a traditional gay pride parade. The planned events stirred turmoil in the politically complex city, with Jewish, Muslim and Christian religious leaders banding together in an uncompromising battle against what they said would defile the holy city. On the other side stood the activists of the Open House, Jerusalem’s LGBT community center, who planned the events. Steadfast in the face of the heated and violent anti-gay sentiment, they had to deal with threats to much more than just their right to march…

A clip of extraordinary skill that for some reason makes me think of the problems president-elect Obama is about to take on:
Obama the Builder…Yes he might!

Such is the demand the world over for Barack Obama gold plates, historians one and all are limited to taking away just two per visit.
Watch and gasp as Helmond’s Daniel Guijo-Velasco gives two – count ‘em! – Nazi salutes in the general direction of Roosendaal midfielder Mels van Driel, during a Dutch league match on Friday night…
Guijo-Velasco, who is Belgian, twice raised his arm in a Hitler stylee, with the referee failing to take any action on either occasion.
When questioned about his actions after the match, Guijo-Velasco defended his behaviour by claiming that Van Driel was acting like “a German”. What a brilliant argument to defend the indefensible.
Helmond have since punished Guijo-Velasco with an internal suspension. Sounds painful.

As Charles Darwin said:
“Worms have played a more important part in the history of the world than most persons would at first suppose.”
He wasn’t kidding. It’s not hard to overreach the value most of us place on earthworms. Although Open Reach Laboratories (Opal) seeks to expand our knowledge by recruiting volunteers to collect and count worms.
