Useless News Thread
#1
I wonder why we never started a thread, displaying all the useless news that keeps dribbling out of the Media on a day-to-day basis? Ok, so here goes. I'm even going to set it at the top of the page, makint it easier to get to.

If anyone has a better suggestion on which section to place this, please feel free to make another suggestion. Wink1

Ok, here is the first one for today. See if you can't come up with the most important question here, and why this story is completely useless.

Here's a hint. It shares one thing in common with

:lol: :lol: Talk about Dumb people acting stupid. YOu just can't make up stuff like this. LOL!



Quote:In an ill-conceived attempt to increase the size of his member, a man placed his penis through the "hole of a steel, ring-shaped dumbbell weight fastener," according to the Daily Pilot. The fasteners are used to secure weight plates on dumbbell bars.

"They said his comment was, 'This will make me the chief of my tribe,'" Costa Mesa Battalion Chief Scott Broussard told the Pilot.

It did -- if becoming chief of the tribe means restricting blood flow and causing one's penis to swell to the point that the device cannot be removed. When he arrived at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian in Newport Beach, doctors tried to convince the man he needed immediate treatment.

That's an interesting website. I liked the story about the family in Germany who heard screams from their cellar feared a burglar had become trapped only to discover the squeals were coming from a hedgehog trapped in a yogurt pot.

Then there is the story about the Swedish soldier who complained about the shoddy GI bra that comes undone during combat. At the same time there is another story about "Combat Barbie," a former Miss England contestant who came in second, who will launch a new campaign offering discount lingerie to servicemen and women. Perhaps someone can get these two women together?

Here and here.

...And why haven't we heard about this?

BTW: it took me frigg'n hours to find THIS STORY so I could figure out what you were talking about. Yes the stupid Cargo Cults could build their own planes if they wanted to, or else make the attempt to learn how to do so - instead they sit back to have it handed to them.

Well, no even more, Johnny won't be able to read. I can see it now. Teachers will have to put up with students complaining their text book batteries have run out during an open book test. Progress marches on.

Usually the Chinese invent things long before the west. What took them so long on this pedal powered chopper?

I don't think this has been true for a long time. Their current system does not reward creative thinking, which is required to advance new ideas. Their current system rewards not making waves, doing what you are told etc...

I agree Jim. My guess is that there are other things which are thought to have originated from China. Take accupuncture, we always thought that it originated in China. However, the Ice Man, Otzi, has the oldest example of accupuncture, which is in Europe, not China.

Cant get fine Corinthian leather? How about Whale-Penis Leather seats instead.

Quote:What’s the world coming to when you can get your $1.45 million bulletproof SUV with gold trim, a ridiculously expensive Vertu cellphone and three bottles of premium vodka, but you can’t get the whale-penis-skin interior?
We have environmentalists and Pamela Anderson to thank for this.

This bizarre story starts in Russia with a company called Dartz, which recently unveiled the Pombron Monaco Red Diamond Edition SUV. Yes, that’s the official name of this four-ton motorized bank vault.
To say this monstrosity is opulent is like saying Oprah has money. Ostentatious doesn’t begin to describe a vehicle with gold-plated window surrounds, gauges encrusted with diamonds and rubies, and an exhaust system made from tungsten. But what really stood out was the whale-penis leather seats.

Yes, you read that correctly, whale penis.

"Whale" penis?

While I can't speak for women, I'm wondering how many men on this board could get into "whale vaginias"?

I'm just sayin'...

This is a rectal exam photo. For details, please see ``Biology, medicine, and surgery of elephants'', By Murray E. Fowler, Susan K. Mikota,

You (and any other truth-seeking republican) can order this book by a toll free call to 1 800 862 6657. This is essential to understanding Junior and ilk.

I'm sure there is a book for truth-seeking democrats too on ass ass exams.

So, Republicans are the truth seeking examiners...

What in the world could the guy in the blue slicker be looking for? How much did they pay him, or did he just loose a bet?

Based on the rarity of that happening to me, I'm thinking most girls are lesbians.

You need to invite some over to look at your art photos.

There might be other explanations.

The animal is commonly plump and fat; and the penis of the male is very conspicuous.
Namely:
If the Nine-banded armadillo were human, its penis would be 4 feet long. Armadillos lead the world in research into the function of the mammalian penis.

I suspect 4' may be too much for some girls....

Wtf is this? This is hilarious. Please, keep it going. MV, I figured this would only come from you.

If 4' peni (what the plural for peniseses?), are too much for many women, then does what does this spell for the average male? What is average?

Is this why some nations are having demographics problems?

Peni is wrong; penises is wrong but colloquially acceptable; and penes is correct.

Compare:

There were a few penises drinking beer on a bench.


But:

Museum of Natural History amassed a large collection of penes.


"Penises" is ok when the context allows replacing "penis" with "prick" and wrong otherwise.

The recent article about the Goat of Allah got the plural wrong....(unless the plural in Indian English is formed differently for multiple penes on a single body...).

See a detailed discussion here....

This is one of those crazy irregular words.... gets even more irregular when you form adjectives etc from it Wink1

Even when considering that the Armadillo's willie is the equivalent of 4', how many female armadillos are caught sitting on a male armadillo? Thus, it may be a chimera.

Since large armadillo willies are routinely picked up off the road, one may ask: Are the armadillos with large willies stupider than others? What do the people do with the willies that are picked up? Are armadillo willies considered an aphrodisiac in China?
