Kim From Facts of Life Died?!?!?!?

Oh wait, it was tyrannical dictator Kim Jong Il that died not Kim Fields who played Tootie in Facts of Life.  My bad.  Apparently, there were some less than bright twitter heads that confused Kim Jong Il's death with the untrue death of Lil Kim.

Mass Asbestos Exposure in Fort Worth in 2007

That's right, according to a study reported in the Fort Worth Star Telegram a controlled demolition of a building in Fort Worth using a new "wet" process instead of removing the asbestos before demolition exposed workers and others to respirable asbestos.  People can have limited exposure to asbestos and then develop cancer decades later.  And this happened not in 1957 or 1967 but, in the 21st century in 2007.

In other news, Fort Worth is also putting lead back into all paint used in schools and is also putting mercury directly into its water supply.

Why Is the Queen of England Playing Risk?

a. Because she's wants a re-do of WWII ending with Britain still being a superpower.
b. Because she's a habitual gambler, she's gambling her hat she can hold onto the Faulkland Islands again.
c. Because she's tired of counting all her money and jewels.

Here's the article this photo is from.

Best Bad Movie of All Time...

Is of course, in yours truly's humble opinion is "Big Trouble in Little China."  Most of you probably knew that's my opinion.  And it goes without saying that the best "B" movie actor of our times is Kurt Russell, again in my opinion.  And again most know that's been my opinion for some time.

I Can't Believe What I Just Saw

Mavs win?  Yeah! Mavs win!  How?  I do not know.  But, they did.  Wow.  Series changer?  Maybe.  We will see.  Regardless, this is/was one of the best comebacks late in the game of all time.  Or maybe the best, I cannot think of one better right now.  Name one better, I dare you.  Let's go cross-sports.  Well, let's not.  Otherwise I'd start talking about the Red Sox against...  And the series is not over.  So it might be all for naught.  We will see...

Let's see what happens going forward.  However, going forward the Mavs have no business winning this game or series, according the the talking heads.  They do like to talk, don't they?  We will see...

Check Out Hypocritical HuffPost Headline:

The headline reads, "U.S. Officials Concerned Over Japan's Response to Crisis".  To put it mildly, that may be a tad much coming from the USA, no matter what administration is in charge, given the good ole' U.S. of A's response to Katrina.  Oh, the article says that Japan had been warned about problems regarding their reactors sometime ago.  Let me see, hadn't folks been telling the the USA and the Corp. of Engineers that there were problems witht the levees in New Orleans for a while prior to Katrina.  Also, great time to kick Japan, when they're down.  And the earthquakes started last Friday, less than a week ago.  How long has it been since Katrina?

Best Movie Spoiler Ever

Daniel Tosh spoils the movie "Human Centipede."  Let's face it, you're not going to watch it so this is the closest you're going to get to seeing it and it's funny.  Be warned, the video is long but, worth it.

Wisconsin Governor Gets a Prank Phone Call

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker thought he was talking to a wealthy GOP donor.  He was actually talking to a liberal blogger posing as GOP donor David Koch.  GOP governors should be wary of taking phone calls (see Sarah Palin prank phone call during the last presidential election).

Not much there.  About 4:30 into the second cut there's been some talk about planting some trouble makers in the crowds protesting.  Just interesting that these phone calls are not screened better.
