I’m Killroy! Killroy! Killroy…

July 18, 2008

My readership seems to have someone gone up one billion percent so perhaps I should post something.

An elderly man has killed himself by programming a robot to shoot him in the head after building the machine from plans downloaded from the internet.

Francis Tovey, 81, who lived alone in Burleigh Heads on the Australian Gold Coast, was found dead in his driveway.

Notes left by Mr Tovey — who was born in England — revealed that he had scoured the internet for plans before constructing his complex machine, which involved a jigsaw power tool and was connected to a .22 semi-automatic pistol loaded with four bullets. It could fire multiple shots once triggered remotely.

‘i don’t want to risk having bad sex today.’

nice work!

i wonder if i am the only person on earth with a crush on don mckellar? no, if my days of being a dreamer, fantasizer, fan girl of many taught me anything, it’s that every celebrity you can think of has a cult of girls hopelessly devoted to them. maybe this is why i want to be famous?

bill cosby to release hip-hop album!

damnit. why, why, WHY is he not rapping on it? that would be one of the greatest things ever.

i used to be obsessed with bill cosby, for some reason. i am pretty sure it began on a wicked lsd trip [also involving meat and tina turner.]

unfortunately i don’t have any pictures of the multiple bill cosby stick puppets i have made, so instead in tribute i will post my favourite picture of him which graced the walls of my high school bedroom for years.

Now the PTC is railing against reality competition America’s Next Top Model. The New York Post reports that the PTC has filed an indecency complaint with the FCC over the show’s March 26 episode, which featured a fully nude model posing for pictures in bed, Marilyn Monroe-style.

i mean, i hear where they are coming from. nothing makes me think of the current state of societal degradation than…. marilyn monroe?

Parents and families are fed up with such blatant and continued disregard for decency standards.

crazy idea: if your children are young enough to be permanently scarred by a nude silhouette, maybe you should be supervising them instead of plunking them down in front of the tv with a remote in their hand. fuck, put on baby einsteins or something if you really have better things to do with your time.

i realize i hardly offer an unbiased opinion on the subject. however, i really do not see the huge issue with nudity. you can see more indecency if you head down to the beach on a warm summer day. clearly nearly nude glistening bodies in the flesh will make our children sex-crazed murderous perverts even more than seeing a flesh coloured blur of pixels on a television screen.

run for your lives!!!

i am glad i live in canada, where there are less uptight over-protective censorship crazy assholes.

and that is why all our children turn into dangerously disturbed adults.

according to the brazilian government, they are the world’s largest consumer of condoms. in a bid to create local jobs, cut down on importation, and help protect the amazon, brazil has begun producing the world’s first condoms using rubber from trees in the tropical rainforest.  in case you just wanted to be that much closer to nature…

i hate myself for getting a lot of my “news” [i use that term fairly loosely] from msn news. it just happens when you use the evil hotmail.

anyway i found this interesting… take that people. i don’t care to specify who should take that, but you know.

Fat people, smokers cheaper to treat than long-living healthy people, study says.

The researchers found that from age 20 to 56, obese people racked up the most expensive health costs. But because both the smokers and the obese people died sooner than the healthy group, it cost less to treat them in the long run.

source: yes yes, msn news.
