Jar Jar fan club!

O.K. I have a confession to make. In the Star Wars movies there is universal dislike and even hatred of the character Jar Jar Binks.

I have heard all sorts of vile and derogatory things said about this alien and it seems to come from all segments of Star Wars fans including another mention in today's issue of the Toronto Star.

Well I've got news for you folks. I personally think that Jar Jar Binks was the funniest thing in the movie and loved him! Jar Jar is hilarious!!!
Yes, I know, "You think everybody is wrong and your right, don't you!?" Well as a matter of fact I think I am right and am almost inclined to start a Jar Jar Binks fan club! Any takers?

Saturday Morning Confusion!

As usual, the world presents us with a long list of stuff to confuse and confound us.

Maybe the tobacco companies were right all along!
Smoking is GOOD for you!
You can never be too careful, so smoke away!

Internet censorship is growing worldwide, with 26 out of 40 countries blocking or filtering political or social content, a study reported Friday.

The survey carried out by experts at four leading universities found that people in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa were often denied access to information about politics, sexuality, culture or religion.

Conducting the first of what is planned to become an annual survey, the experts at the universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard and Toronto found that the approach varied according to the country.

For example, South Korea heavily censored only one topic, North Korea, while Iran, China and Saudi Arabia blocked both a wide range of topics and a great deal of content related to those topics.

The experts with the OpenNet Initiative, who carried out their research last year, listed six countries as "pervasive" filterers of political information: Myanmar, China, Iran, Syria, Tunisia and Vietnam.

They categorized seven countries, all of them Muslim, as "pervasive" social filterers: Iran, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Tunisia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen.

Topics blocked are those considered antithetical to social norms, such as pornography, gay and lesbian content, and gambling.

Social filtering also was carried out by countries like France and Germany, where websites that deny the Holocaust or promote Nazism are blocked.

The survey found that Myanmar, China, Iran, Pakistan and South Korea have the "most encompassing national security filtering," targeting the websites of insurgents, extremists, and terrorists.

"The survey shows us that online censorship is growing around the world," said John Palfrey, executive director of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, and clinical professor of law at Harvard Law School.

"Some regulation is to be expected as the medium matures, but filtering and surveillance can seriously erode civil liberties and privacy and stifle global communications," he added in a statement. However, the survey found that a handful of countries where Internet filtering might be expected -- such as Afghanistan, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Malaysia, Nepal, Russia, Venezuela and Zimbabwe -- were found not to filter.

The survey said that Internet filtering techniques have evolved with the growing complexity of content.

"Instead of just blocking static Web sites, such as pages online that show pornographic pictures or information about human rights, online censors are blocking entire applications, such as YouTube," it added.

Other applications that are often targeted are Internet telephony service Skype and Google Maps. Still others are blogs, political parties and local non-government organisations.

"In the case of blogs, a number of countries, including Pakistan and Ethiopia, have blocked entire blogging domains," it said.

The survey said the United States and European countries did not come in for testing, as the filtering practices were better understood than in other parts of the world.

The survey marked "the first step towards a comprehensive global assessment of Internet filtering practices," said Oxford University professor Jonathan Zittrain,who expects to find more countries that filter the Internet as testing is expanded.

Then there was this story from Associated Press!

Man in deep doo-doo after sending dog shit with parking ticket payment.

AUSTIN, Minn. (AP) - An man who allegedly included dog shit along with his payment for a parking ticket has been charged with disorderly conduct. The 22-year-old man was charged with the misdemeanor May 11 in a criminal complaint filed in Mower County District Court.

The man's vehicle was ticketed on April 18 while it was parked in front of his residence. He put an envelope containing his payment and dog shit in a drop box at the law enforcement center, the complaint stated.

On April 25, an office employee for the Austin Police Department smelled a rank odor as she gathered envelopes from the box. Opening the envelopes, the woman noticed one leaking a brown fluid, which got onto her hands and her desk, according to the complaint.

The next morning the woman awoke with a headache and vomited repeatedly. She was hospitalized for about two days with an undetermined illness.

The man allegedly admitted putting his dog's feces in the envelope because he was upset at the time, the complaint stated. He told police he immediately regretted doing it because he realized a secretary would probably open it.

He has been summoned to appear in court June 15.

The payload container carrying experiments and the cremated ashes of some 200 dearly departed people - a cargo that includes remains of the beloved "Scotty" of "Star Trek" fame - has been recovered in the New Mexico mountains.

"It has been found. It is in good shape," Eric Knight, co-founder of the rocket firm UP Aerospace that launched the cargo, told SPACE.com Friday. Scotty has been beamed up!

And finally for this Saturday morning, we have the latest news from your "dauntless" scribe about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.

Remember those? Then go HERE to get the full story!!!!

The Grieving Widow!

Labels: , , ,

Skin cells may hold key to reversing baldness.

I found this rather interesting since I am starting to get a little sparse on top!

Skin cells have the ability to regenerate lost hair follicles in mice, according to researchers who said the findings could pave the way for a genetic-based treatment of hair loss.

Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania found that when the skin of mice is wounded, epidermal cells can assume the properties of stem cells that generate hair follicles.

Their findings were published Wednesday in the journal Nature.

While the wounding process brings back less hair than was present, researchers found they could stimulate more or less hair growth through genetic engineering: that is, stimulating or stopping a gene in the mouse to produce different levels of proteins that activate the hair regeneration process.

It was previously thought that adult hair follicles in most mammals do not grow back but this new method looks like it might just work and make someone a whole lot of money in the process.

This One's For You!

Indian Giver (part 2)

For all my freinds who chose to call me a "racist piece of shit" for the article on Canada, Land of Wimps I would like to reproduce an article here that I posted on this blog some months back..................!

The conversation would have gone something like this!

"O.K., here's what we came up with and............. Running Bear, put the buffalo wings down, you'll eat later!"

"This whole "cheap smokes" thing is getting stale, plus a lot of people are quitting so we have to come up with a new scam!" "Yea, yea, the Casinos are doing O.K. but diversification is the key my friends."

"What we are going to do is take a long look at every treaty we ever signed with the Federal Government. That's any agreement we made and any dispute that is on-going right now!"

"Then, and this is the good part, it doesn't matter if the treaty is fifty, a hundred or two hundred years old, we march in and occupy the land."

"No, really, just walk in with a bunch of the squaws and kids and set up camp! Maybe start a few fires, you know!"

"Well, yea, we need the women and kids there as a buffer in case the situation takes a turn. Know what I mean!"

"Then, once we have a base of operations, we put up roadblocks and shut down any businesses or construction going on at the site! Yea, just like we are on strike only it's the Federal government we are protesting against"

"Now, here come the kicker..... once we have enough publicity we will be in a position to extort, er, I mean demand, a re-negotiation of whatever it is we are protesting on that location."

"I tell you it's foolproof. We can sign our own ticket!!!"

"THE COPS? Piss on the cops man, they don't do squat. I don't know if they have orders from higher-up or they think we have more guns, but they don't do shit!"

"NO, really, at most they will put the run to the white guys so that there's no trouble. We, meanwhile, have almost a blank cheque to do what we want."

"Yea, really White Cloud, would I lie to you about this! It's a piece of cake!!!!!!!!!!!!"

This fictional scene has been repeated in one form or another many, many times and so far the Canadian Federal Government has been held hostage for hundreds of millions of YOUR tax dollars. (That's a number followed by eight zero's!)

Now don't think this imaginary conversation is so far fetched. At the same time the Indians marched in and took over Ipperwash they also put in a land claim for ALMOST HALF OF THE CITY OF SARNIA!

Fortunately, after a few days of sober reflection they realized that this one would never fly so they came back and said: "About that Sarnia thing........... never mind!"

France gets new President!

Nicolas Sarkozy, a U. S. leaning politician, has been elected as the new President of France. He will likely replace Tony Blair of Britain as the American lapdog in Europe and George Bush is holding out great hopes for him.

Meanwhile, his brother, Pee Wee Herman, has let it be known that Nick has a mind of his own and the U. S. should not get their hopes too high on unqualified support from France in the near future since the French are amazingly fickle.

Canada to bar foreign strippers!

The Harper government is tabling legislation aimed at restricting "vulnerable foreign workers" such as strippers from entering Canada, Immigration Minister Diane Finley says.

During question period Wednesday, Finley told the House of Commons she would introduce legislation later in the day to amend the Immigration and Refugee Act.

The legislation would allow the minister to instruct immigration officers to deny work permits to foreign strippers.

She said the government was making an effort to protect women from exploitation but the immigration minister offered few details about how the law would work.

The former government issued temporary work permits to 600 foreign exotic dancers before putting a stop to the practice in 2004.

The former immigration minister, Liberal Judy Sgro, resigned amid accusations she fast-tracked the immigration papers of a Romanian stripper who had worked on her campaign.

A report from former ethics commissioner Bernard Shapiro partially cleared her, finding she didn't know the woman was a campaign volunteer at the time she decided to grant the temporary residence permit.

The $85 Computer

Guest Post, Andy Greenberg

In its attempts to sell you ever-more expensive PCs, the computer industry is constantly producing faster, smaller and sexier machines. That's great for gamers, technophiles and Dell shareholders.

But what about the rest of us? What do we get from all the bells and whistles piled into today's PCs?

Not enough to justify the $1,000 price tag the industry hopes we'll go for. The average consumer spends just $741 on a PC today, compared with $912 three years ago, according to the Consumer Electronics Association--even though advances in technology mean new machines have more processing power, memory and other features.

In fact, many consumers don't need to upgrade. A bare-bones computer suits them just fine--and these days, they can buy them for as little as $85.

Data Evolution's decTOP. Price: $150 To $180. Buy from: Major retailers, beginning summer 2007 The decTOP offers 128 megabytes of RAM, a 10-gigabyte hard drive and Microsoft Windows' CE operating system, all in a box the size of four DVD cases. The computer's technology was originally developed by Advanced Micro Devices as part of the chip company's "50x15" initiative, which seeks to take 50% of the world's population online by 2015.

That minuscule price is attached to Norhtec's Microclient JrSX, a desktop PC the size of a large novel. The Microclient is no Powerbook; it has only 128 megabytes of RAM and a 300-megahertz processor. And instead of a hard drive, it's designed to store data on flash cards.

Thailand-based Norhtec's founder, Michael Barnes, says he's already sold thousands of the machines.

Most of those customers have been businesses: One group of McDonald's restaurants bought 1,200 to set up their wi-fi networks, he says, and a Canadian diamond-mining Arctic expedition installed the space-saving computers in its planes. But the low cost also appeals to consumers who are tired of paying for features they don't need.

Shoppers can buy the machines directly from the company's Web site, Norhtec.com.
Norhtec's MicroClient JrSX. Price: $85. Buy from: Norhtec.com. The MicroClient JrSX is a true bare-bones machine, with 128 megabytes of RAM and a 300-megahertz processor. Rather than include a hard drive, the novel-sized PC stores data on flash cards, and it has no sound capabilities. But at $85, Norhtec's low-power, low-noise computer may also be the cheapest on the market. Still, the company's founder, Michael Barnes, wants to go even lower. "We believe we'll see a real explosion when computers get down to below $80," he says.

"Year after year, the entry-level computer costs around $495," Barnes says. "The newest computers always offer more speed and better graphics and are really made for game users. But the people who buy our computers want small, inexpensive machines that don't break down." And as low, low-end PCs get even smaller and cheaper, Barnes predicts they'll become more popular. "We believe we'll see a real explosion when computers get down to below $80," he says.

The machines have their drawbacks. The MicroClient JrSX is too small to fit a CD player, and forget about Apple's iTunes: The Microclient doesn't even offer audio. Nor will it play "Halo" or any other game that would overwhelm the machine's limited storage. And programs that use a lot of memory, like Adobe Photoshop, are probably too much for the tiny PC.

Norhtec's prices also don't include a keyboard, mouse or monitor, which will run at least $100. But not a lot more: Amazon.com, for instance, sells a Philips 107E71 15-inch monitor for $49.99, a Belkin mouse for $3.95 and a Logitech keyboard for $9.58. The site also sells an external CD-ROM drive from Procom for $9.85, and for those looking to soup up their storage capacity, Tigerdirect.com sells a refurbished 80-gigabyte Seagate hard drive for $54.97.

Almost all those components are included, however, in a machine being developed by Nicholas Negroponte's One Laptop Per Child program, which promises a fully equipped laptop for a projected $176.

OLPC claims that its machines will boast screens with four times the resolution of a normal laptop, a 12-hour battery life, a waterproof and fall-proof shell, and wi-fi reception that's 50% better than any computer on the market.

One Laptop Per Child's XO. Price: Around $176. Buy from: Not yet available to consumers. OLPC claims that its XO laptop has a screen resolution four times better than a normal laptop, a 12-hour battery life, a waterproof and fall-proof shell, and wi-fi reception that's 50% better than any computer on the market, all for a tiny fraction of a typical laptop price. Starting in September, the machines will sell for around $150 to schools outside the U.S. and $176 to schools in the U.S. Consumers should be able to buy the machine at a higher price later this year.

The OLPC laptop was designed for poor children in the developing world. But they are likely to end up in the U.S. as well, where the program plans to distribute them to youngsters in as many as 19 U.S. states. And while the project was created out of philanthropic impulses, the OLPC now sees a consumer market for their machines.

"The industry is going to have to change the way it does things," says Walter Bender, OLPC's president of software and content. "Computing doesn't have to be the way it's been defined. It can be a lot lighter, a lot friendlier and a lot less expensive."

The OLPC isn't the first group to make a small, cheap and rugged PC. Data Evolution's decTOP, a brick-sized, low-power-consuming desktop, offers 128 megabytes of RAM and a 10-gigabyte hard drive that will sell for between $150 and $180.

Like the OLPC laptop, the decTOP's innovations come out of a drive to bring computers and the Internet to rural Africa and Asia: Data Evolution acquired the machine's hardware from Advanced Micro Devices (nyse: AMD - news - people ), whose "50x15" program seeks to take 50% of the world's population online by 2015.

Data Evolution Chief Executive Robert Sowah shares that goal, but he also sees the opportunity to equip Americans with PCs that suit their needs, which he says are almost always overserved by expensive modern machines. He plans to sell the decTOP in major retail stores like Best Buy and Circuit City starting this summer.

"Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Internet and e-mail," Sowah says. "That's what 90% of people do with computers, and they don't need these massive chips with oodles of storage and memory."

Microtel's MCS7001. Price: $219 after $50 rebate. Buy from: Microtelpc.com. The Microtel MCS7001 looks like any computer, and it isn't especially small or low-power. But for those searching for a fully-functional PC below $250, it may be the best deal. The machine has a 2.2-gigahertz processor, 256 megabytes of RAM and a 40-gigabyte hard drive, and unlike some bargain machines, it includes a CD-ROM drive, a keyboard and a mouse.

One reason that a machine like the decTOP can meet the needs of so many users is that the basic functions that Sowah lists are increasingly rolled together into a single, online package. Web services like Google Apps, which allows users to edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations online, take the workload off an individual's machine and put it instead on Google's massive servers.

Data is stored and numbers are crunched online; the user's machine need only be a window to the increasingly powerful Web.

Beyond that trend, Sowah says that the movement toward cheaper, more practical machines is about computing technology meeting the needs of people, instead of vice versa."In the past, it's always been technology pushing desire, and users asking, 'What can we do with this?'" he says. "Now, for once, desire is pushing technology."

CANADA, Land of the Wimps!

(I am writing this introduction a few days after the main article to make something clear. Sorry, it's not the natives who are the wimps, it's the GOVERNMENT who are the wimps for constantly giving in to the French Canadians and the Indians every time they try and extort money out of them. They only have to blink and the Federal Government throws more cash their way!!!

The Indians aren't stupid, they know a good thing when they see it and that's to twist the arm of the Government at every possible opportunity. Read my piece a little futher on about "Indian Giver" ---- and don't think that conversation hasn't been held quite a few times across this great land of ours.)

Although I dearly love this country and would not want to live anywhere else on the planet, sometimes what goes on here is disgusting!

Quebec has been holding this country for ransom since Confederation because they can't get it through their heads that France lost the war on the Plains of Abraham and the British were in charge after that.

The Separatists have extorted everything and anything they can out of Canada under the threat of separation, when in actual fact, if they ever did separate they would go from a "land of plenty" (thanks to Federal Government handouts) to the status of a third world country in short order.

They would be an island of 6 million whining Frenchmen amongst a sea of 350 million Anglos!!!< That's one thing the Parti Quebecois fails to tell voters in La Belle Province.

But, if it's not the French Canadians whining, then it's the Indians.

National native leader Phil Fontaine warned a blue-chip audience on Tuesday that the anger felt in many First Nations communities has reached a breaking point.

"Frankly, we are fearful of the effect this is having on the well-being and public safety in our communities," said the chief of the Assembly of First Nations in a speech to the Canadian Club of Ottawa.

"So here I am again today, hammering away at another group. Many of our communities have reached the breaking point. The anger and frustration are palpable."

A report in Tuesday's Globe and Mail quoted a First Nation leader in Manitoba threatening widespread economic disruption and a potential blockade of CN rail lines connecting Eastern and Western Canada.

Fontaine did not dismiss worries about possible confrontations this summer. While he has a track record of favouring quiet diplomacy over barricades, he suggested to his audience that this tactic has yielded few results.

"Consider where that attitude has gotten us — obviously not very far," he said.

Fontaine also urged governments to work harder to settle more than 1,100 outstanding land claims, noting that at the current pace of negotiations, it would take 130 years to resolve them.

Pointing to severe overcrowding in many native communities, Fontaine spoke of visiting Pikangikum, an Ontario reserve about 300 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg, where he witnessed as many as 28 people living in small two-bedroom homes where people are forced to sleep in shifts.

Some parents go without rest so that their children can sleep, he said.

"How many of you in this room would be able to function Monday morning without sleep?" Fontaine asked.

The Conservative government has pledged $46 million over the next five years for the embattled community, which has been plagued by suicides and a lack of basic services such as indoor plumbing.

Fontaine has repeatedly called on the federal government to spend an additional $5 billion over five years to help ease aboriginal poverty.

"We only want what you already have," he said Tuesday.

The Conservatives shelved the previous Liberal government's $5-billion Kelowna Accord to address the gap in quality of living between Canadians and First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. The deal set targets to improve education, housing, economic development, health and water services, but details of how much of the money would be spent and who would provide the services were left to be negotiated at a later date.

Speaking outside the House of Commons on Tuesday, federal Indian Affairs Minister Jim Prentice said Fontaine had a responsibility to convince aboriginal communities and their leaders not to hold blockades, which he called "counterproductive" and harmful to the "goodwill" Canadians show toward First Nations communities.

"Someone is going to get hurt and I call on all chiefs, and the national chief in particular, to make sure that doesn't happen," Prentice told reporters.

He added the government is making progress at land claims tables, and suggested Fontaine was not accurately representing the state of negotiations. "There seems to be a great deal of rhetoric," the minister said.

Fontaine also spoke of how deep poverty in many First Nations communities leads child welfare officials to remove children from their families.

"The number of First Nations children today who have been removed from families and placed into state care is now three times the number of children that were in residential schools at the height of this terrible experience.

"It is my understanding that is not usually because of deliberate physical or sexual abuse, but because of poverty and its terrible consequences.… It isn't because of lack of parental love, as has been suggested," adding that the Assembly of First Nations has filed a complaint about First Nations child welfare with the Canadian Human Rights Commission.

Fontaine pointed out that the UN Convention on the Rights of the Children states that child welfare officials must not remove children from homes due to poverty.

He then drove the point home by asking his audience to imagine how they would feel as parents if they were to return home to find their children had been taken into state care.

"Think of what it would do to them emotionally, and to you," he said. "Hopefully, you'll feel uncomfortable enough to do something about this."

Well I've got news for Mr Fountaine; First of all the native reserves down south here are a national disgrace and need to be cleaned up.

These people choose to live for the most part in substandard housing with multiple wrecks of old cars on their front lawns and rampant crime running through their community.

Local jails are housing a disproportionate number of Indians. The native population of provincial jails is hovering around 20% while the native population of the province as a whole is about 2%. (If you work it out that's ten times the national average!!!)

Blockading rail lines and having standoffs such as Caledonia and Oka to extort money from the Federal Government is not the way to go.

Phony land claims and welfare are no substitute for pulling yourself up by your bootstraps and making something of yourself, after all you don't see the Chinese causing any trouble on their reserve. (Markham)

As for the Indians living on reserves up north by Hudson bay or whatever else God forsaken place they find themselves in I have some advice.

If the fishing and hunting is no longer any good, if you want to live more like people down south with modern amenities and conveniences, if there is no industry or infrastructure to give you a chance at making a living and the only way to get in and out of your community is by airplane, then there is only on logical solution to this dilemma,........................... MOVE DAMMIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't expect us to give you endless welfare, if the land can't support you, GET OUT! That's what the Irish did in the 1840's and 50's and what the Europeans in general did right up to the 1970's, so what's holding you back?

Thought screen helmet stops alien abductions!


A Multimeter shows a voltage which proves that the thought screen helmet intercepts a microwave signal although the source of the signal cannot be determined. It also demonstrates that aliens are neither paranormal nor supernatural. Test made by a man with two helmets who was being abducted. See the development section for more information on this historic discovery.

How The Thought Screen Helmet Works

The thought screen helmet blocks telepathic communication between aliens and humans. An abductee who took voltage readings from a second helmet while wearing another one demonstrates that this communication is a form of electromagnetic energy.

Aliens cannot immobilize people wearing thought screens nor can they control their minds or communicate with them using their telepathy. When aliens can't communicate or control humans, they do not take them.

A Record of Success

The thought screen helmet has effectively stopped several types of aliens from abducting or controlling humans. Only two failures from standard thought screen helmets have been reported since 1998. A third failure in 2005 was from a cloth helmet with a smaller square area of Velostat and a Velcro strap which was easily removed by an alien hybrid.

Worldwide Use

Adults and children all over America, all over Australia, in Canada, the United Kingdom, and in the Republic of South Africa are wearing thought screen helmets to stop alien abductions. Many former abudctees have been wearing thought screen helmets successfully since 1999.

Successful Shielding Material

Other shielding material was tried in previous models with less success. Only thought screen helmets using Velostat are effective. Large leather aviator hats lined with Velostat with secure straps are recommended for making effective helmets.

ALIEN ABDUCTEE FROM AUSTRIA WEARING A THOUGHT SCREEN HELMET SHE MADE FROM DIRECTIONS ON THIS WEB SITE. "I have been abducted for years and found stopabductions.com by a happy coincidence.
The Thought Screen Helmet, invented by an expert, has stopped the unwelcome visitations and has raised me and my family`s quality of life. Therefore I highly
recommend it."

ALIEN ABDUCTEE FROM KENTUCKY WEARING A THOUGHT SCREEN HELMET. Since trying Michael Menkin's Helmet, I have not been bothered by alien mind control. Now my thoughts are my own. I have achieved meaningful work and am contributing to society.

My life is better than ever before. Thank you Michael for the work you are doing to save all humanity."

Thought Screen Helmet testimonials from users.

Names of abductees are withheld for confidentiality and to prevent harassment from skeptics. See "Intruders Foundation" website for comments on harassment from skeptics.

“We (a husband and wife team) felt we did not need to include each day from the diary this time since each entry is getting to be repetitive. We have been sleeping very well and have had no unusual experiences since the evaluation of the Thought Screen Helmet.

I must say we were a bit skeptical as to it working but we looked at it in comparison to magnetic therapy that so many people have claimed works. Now many doctors are recommending magnets as part of treatment for various things.

By blocking or reflecting thought energy seems to be a most practical way of dealing with alien influences and in preventing abduction scenarios.”

“Still nothing new to report here...so it must work!”

“Congrats...my life has changed for the better...new job, new confidence etc.”

“Thank you, thank you, for your work in this area. Your efforts to protect those of us who have been victims of this living nightmare are most appreciated.”

“I am happy to report that the Thought Screen Helmet has been performing beautifully! It’s been over six months now and NOT ONE INCIDENT! Aside from some of the naive neighborhood kids and their taunting it’s been a blissful period.”

“The aliens clearly do not like the helmet.” (This statement is from a woman abductee and her five year old daughter who was also being abducted.

The aliens harassed the five year old and threatened her that something terrible would happen to her mother if her mother did not stop wearing the helmet. The girl was so frightened by the aliens that her mother stopped wearing the helmet and they both were taken.)

“I have slept now every night for a week. I though that I would never sleep through the night again due to the operations in my head. My husband presented me with the helmet you sent me. I said to him, “honey this is not going to work,”

I am a skeptic and told him I did not ever expect to sleep well again. But my husband Steve said I should try it for him, he cares about me so much so I did. Well the first night I slept peacefully dreaming about normal and peaceful things. I said perhaps it was because I was so sleep deprived.

Well, the next night I slept again peacefully and have every night since. I thank you so very much, it works!”

“The Thought Screen Helmet is working perfectly. I have not had contact with the aliens since I first started using it. Though twice now coming back from work, I have noticed lights following to the rear of my car, so now I take the helmet with me in the car in case I am abducted. “

“I am using the material (Velostat) in my hat. I wear it to bed. I sleep better than I have in a long time. But it’s hard to tell if it works or not. I think it works.”

“I want to thank you and thank Jesus. The helmet works. ...I don’t feel alone any more.”

“I am able to fight it off. The helmet is working for me.”

“My son has been wearing the helmet since December 2000. A Neurologist and pediatrician both say that he has made dramatic improvement in his behavior, ability to process information, and he gives me eye contact. My son has been open with me about his dreams and abduction experiences. He wears the helmet after school and at night.”

“I wore the helmet nightly for about 3-4 months after receiving it. I stopped dreaming of alien encounters, and am not aware of any strange events since that time, in spite of witnessing odd lights in the fall of 2000.

I have awakened twice in the past year with a strange headache and sore spot at the base of the right side of my skull.

I was not wearing a helmet either time, and I don’t have any associated memories. I’ve noted in the past that grays and possibly others have had interest in two of my four children. The have not reported remembering any experiences, and I’m not aware of any recent activity.”

"Just thought I would let you know there has been no more problems since we started wearing the helmets. We are finally getting some good peaceful sleep after about three years"

Possible alien weaknesses (grays only)

Reliance on telepathy. When the alien's telepathic powers are neutralized by the "thought screen helmet" they do not attempt to abduct their victims. Without their telepathic power they cannot render their victims passive.

Nutrient absorbing skin of grays. It was reported in The Threat that the grays sit in a vat of nutrients and absorb it through their skin. They do not eat as humans do. The grays nutrient absorbing skin may be a weakness as substances of strong odors or material sprayed on their skin may be absorbed directly into their body.

If you have experience with any alien weakness for any alien race anywhere in the world, please email this website. send email to: mmenkin@hotmail.com

Jerry Falwell pisses off GOD once too often!

The Rev. Jerry Falwell, the television evangelist who founded the Moral Majority and used it to mold the religious right into a political force, died Tuesday shortly after being found unconscious in his office at Liberty University. He was 73.

Ron Godwin, the university's executive vice president, said Falwell was found unresponsive late Tuesday morning and taken to Lynchburg General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead about an hour later.

In a terse one sentence statement God is quoted as saying "Enough is enough, and if Pat Robertson doesn't clean up his act, he's next!"

A little whine with that, my dear?

French workers are the world's biggest whiners, according to a study published Monday, which also said the Irish complain least about their lot. (That's because they are always a bit tipsy!)

Britons come second to their Gallic cousins in the moaning stakes, followed by Sweden, the United States and Australia. Japanese workers have the lowest morale, but don't complain so much.

The lowest levels of whining were found in the Netherlands, Thailand and Ireland, according to the study by the FDS research group.

"It is interesting to note that after France, Britain and Sweden, the world's biggest workplace whiners are Americans, despite their having by far the highest levels of income," said FDS chief Charlotte Cornish. "Compare them to Thai workers: while real levels of income are more than eight times higher in the States, more workers in the US feel their pay is a problem than in Thailand," she added.

The study, entitled "What Workers Want, A Worldwide Study of Attitudes to Work and Work-Life Balance", draws on data from 14,000 employees in 23 countries. They were notably asked about their satisfaction with issues including pay levels and their work-life balance, as well as average working hours.

In terms of worker morale, Dutch workers are the happiest, followed by their Thai and Irish counterparts. The lowest morale of all is found in Japan, followed by Germany, said the study.

The studies authors noted that right wing French President-elect Nicolas Sarkozy shouldn't expect things to become happier anytime soon, as he prepares to shake up notoriously strike-prone France.

"The UK and US, with their marked competitive individualism and unequal wealth distribution, both appear towards the top of the world's list of whiniest workers," said Cornish.

"The French come out on top -- it seems unlikely that Nicolas Sarkozy's election and the likely shift to more Anglo-Saxon economic practices will make the workers in France any more happy with their lot," she added.

This seems in line with what is happening here in Canada. The English are among the least whiny in the world while the French Canadians have turned whining into a national pastime.

Just Because!

Now that takes balls!

Around here, it may be tough to pass up anything deep-fried.

Wisconsinites have deep-fried cheese curds, candy bars and Twinkies. They now have deep-fried livestock testicles, too.

More than 300 people paid US$5 for all-you-can-eat goat, lamb and bull testicles Saturday at the ninth annual Testicle Festival at Mama's Place Bar and Grill in Elderon in central Wisconsin.

"Once you get over the mental aspect of what you're eating, it's just like eating any other food, and it tastes good," Buster Hoffman said.

Festival founder Nancy Fenske said the festival grew out of her late husband Roger's birthday party 12 years ago. They decided to have "a nut fry" at Mama's Place after bringing back lamb fries from a trip to Montana.

The event grew every year and now they fry up to 45 kilograms of testicles, she said.

"What else can you do in a small town?" Fenske said.

Butch Joubert, 58, likes the parts sandwiched between bread with tartar sauce. They're not so different from regular meatballs also served at the festival, he said.

"After a few beers, you can't really tell the difference," Joubert said.

20 Most Amazing Coincidences

James Dean's car curse

In September 1955, James Dean was killed in a horrific car accident whilst he was driving his Porsche sports car. After the crash the car was seen as very unlucky.
a) When the car was towed away from accident scene and taken to a garage, the engine slipped out and fell onto a mechanic, shattering both of his legs.
b) Eventually the engine was bought by a doctor, who put it into his racing car and was killed shortly afterwards, during a race. Another racing driver, in the same race, was killed in his car, which had James Dean's driveshaft fitted to it.
c) When James Dean's Porsche was later repaired, the garage it was in was destroyed by fire.
d) Later the car was displayed in Sacramento, but it fell off it's mount and broke a teenager's hip.
e) In Oregon, the trailer that the car was mounted on slipped from it's towbar and smashed through the front of a shop.
f) Finally, in 1959, the car mysteriously broke into 11 pieces while it was sitting on steel supports. (Source: Mysteries of the Unexplained)

A falling baby, saved twice by the same man

In Detroit sometime in the 1930s, a young (if incredibly careless) mother must have been eternally grateful to a man named Joseph Figlock. As Figlock was walking down the street, the mother's baby fell from a high window onto Figlock. The baby's fall was broken and both man and baby were unharmed. A stroke of luck on its own, but a year later, the very same baby fell from the very same window onto poor, unsuspecting Joseph Figlock as he was again passing beneath. And again, they both survived the event. (Source: Mysteries of the Unexplained)

A bullet that reached its destiny years later

Henry Ziegland thought he had dodged fate. In 1883, he broke off a relationship with his girlfriend who, out of distress, committed suicide. The girl's brother was so enraged that he hunted down Ziegland and shot him. The brother, believing he had killed Ziegland, then turned his gun on himself and took his own life. But Ziegland had not been killed. The bullet, in fact, had only grazed his face and then lodged in a tree. Ziegland surely thought himself a lucky man. Some years later, however, Ziegland decided to cut down the large tree, which still had the bullet in it. The task seemed so formidable that he decided to blow it up with a few sticks of dynamite. The explosion propelled the bullet into Ziegland's head, killing him. (Source: Ripley's Believe It or Not!)

Twin Boys, twin lives

The stories of identical twins' nearly identical lives are often astonishing, but perhaps none more so than those of identical twins born in Ohio. The twin boys were separated at birth, being adopted by different families. Unknown to each other, both families named the boys James. And here the coincidences just begin. Both James grew up not even knowing of the other, yet both sought law-enforcement training, both had abilities in mechanical drawing and carpentry, and each had married women named Linda. They both had sons whom one named James Alan and the other named James Allan. The twin brothers also divorced their wives and married other women - both named Betty. And they both owned dogs which they named Toy. Forty years after their childhood separation, the two men were reunited to share their amazingly similar lives. (Source: Reader's Digest, January 1980)

Just like Edgar Allan Poe's book

In the 19th century, the famous horror writer, Egdar Allan Poe, wrote a book called 'The narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym'. It was about four survivors of a shipwreck who were in an open boat for many days before they decided to kill and eat the cabin boy whose name was Richard Parker. Some years later, in 1884, the yawl, Mignonette, foundered, with only four survivors, who were in an open boat for many days. Eventully the three senior members of the crew, killed and ate the cabin boy. The name of the cabin boy was Richard Parker. (Source: Mysteries of the Unexplained)

Twin brothers, killed on the same road, two hours apart

On 2002, Seventy-year-old twin brothers have died within hours of one another after separate accidents on the same road in northern Finland. The first of the twins died when he was hit by a lorry while riding his bike in Raahe, 600 kilometres north of the capital, Helsinki. He died just 1.5km from the spot where his brother was killed. "This is simply a historic coincidence. Although the road is a busy one, accidents don't occur every day," police officer Marja-Leena Huhtala told Reuters. "It made my hair stand on end when I heard the two were brothers, and identical twins at that. It came to mind that perhaps someone from upstairs had a say in this," she said. (Source: BBC News)

Three suicide attempts, all stopped by the same Monk

Joseph Aigner was a fairlly well-known portrait painter in 19th century Austria who, apparently, was quite an unhappy fellow: he several times attempted suicide. His first attempt was at the young age of 18 when he tried to hang himself, but was interrupted by the mysterious appearance of a Capuchin monk. At age 22 he again tried to hang himself, but was again saved from the act by the very same monk. Eight years later, his death was ordained by others who sentenced him to the gallows for his political activities. Once again, his life was saved by the intervention of the same monk. At age 68, Aiger finally succeeded in suicide, a pistol doing the trick. His funeral ceremony was conducted by the same Capuchin monk - a man whose name Aiger never even knew.

Poker winnings, to the unsuspected son

In 1858, Robert Fallon was shot dead, an act of vengeance by those with whom he was playing poker. Fallon, they claimed, had won the $600 pot through cheating. With Fallon's seat empty and none of the other players willing to take the now-unlucky $600, they found a new player to take Fallon's place and staked him with the dead man's $600. By the time the police had arrived to investigate the killing, the new player had turned the $600 into $2,200 in winnings. The police demanded the original $600 to pass on to Fallon's next of kin - only to discover that the new player turned out to be Fallon's son, who had not seen his father in seven years!

A novel that unsuspectedly described the spy next door

When Norman Mailer began his novel Barbary Shore, there was no plan to have a Russian spy as a character. As he worked on it, he introduced a Russian spy in the U.S. as a minor character. As the work progressed, the spy became the dominant character in the novel. After the novel was completed, the U.S. Immigration Service arrested a man who lived just one floor above Mailer in the same apartment building. He was Colonel Rudolf Abel, alleged to be the top Russian spy working in the U.S. at that time. (Source: Science Digest)

Mark Twain and Halley's Comet

Mark Twain was born on the day of the appearance of Halley's Comet in 1835, and died on the day of its next appearance in 1910. He himself predicted this in 1909, when he said: "I came in with Halley's Comet in 1835. It is coming again next year, and I expect to go out with it."

Three strangers on a Train, with complementary last names

In the 1920s, three Englishman were traveling separately by train through Peru. At the time of their introduction, they were the only three men in the railroad car. Their introductions were more surprising than they could have imagined. One man's last name was Bingham, and the second man's last name was Powell. The third man announced that his last name was Bingham-Powell. None were related in any way. (Source: Mysteries of the Unexplained)

Two brothers killed by the same taxi driver, one year apart

In 1975, while riding a moped in Bermuda, a man was accidentally struck and killed by a taxi. One year later, this man's bother was killed in the very same way. In fact, he was riding the very same moped. And to stretch the odds even further, he was struck by the very same taxi driven by the same driver - and even carrying the very same passenger!

Swapped Hotel Findings

In 1953, television reporter Irv Kupcinet was in London to cover the coronation of Ellizabeth II. In one of the drawers in his room at the Savoy he found found some items that, by their identification, belonged to a man named Harry Hannin. Coincidentally, Harry Hannin - a basketball star with the famed Harlem Globetrotters - was a good friend of Kupcinet's. But the story has yet another twist. Just two days later, and before he could tell Hannin of his lucky discovery, Kupcinet received a letter from Hannin. In the letter, Hannin told Kucinet that while staying at the Hotel Meurice in Paris, he found in a drawer a tie - with Kupcinet's name on it! (Source: Mysteries of the Unexplained)

Two Mr. Brysons, same hotel room

While on a business trip sometime in the late 1950s, Mr. George D. Bryson stopped and registered at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. After signing the register and being given his key to room 307, he stopped by the mail desk to see if any letters had arrived for him. Indeed there was a letter, the mail girl told him, and handed him an envelope addressed to Mr. George D. Bryson, room 307. This wouldn't be so odd, except the letter was not for him, but for room 307's just-previous occupant - another man named George D. Bryson. (Source: Incredible Coincidence, Alan Vaughan)

Twins brothers, same heart attack

John and Arthur Mowforth were twins who lived about 80 miles apart in Great Britain. On the evening of May 22, 1975, both fell severely ill from chest pains. The families of both men were completely unaware of the other's illness. Both men were rushed to separate hospitals at approximately the same time. And both died of heart attacks shortly after arrival. (Source: Chronogenetics: The Inheretance of Biological Time, Luigi Gedda and Gianni Brenci)

A novel that predicted the Titanic's destiny

Morgan Robertson, in 1898, wrote "Futility". It described the maiden voyage of a transatlantic luxury liner named the Titan. Although it was touted as being unsinkable, it strikes an iceberg and sinks with much loss of life. In 1912 the Titanic, a transatlantic luxury liner widely touted as unsinkable strikes an iceberg and sinks with great loss of life on her maiden voyage. In the Book, the Month of the Wreck was April, same as in the real event. There were 3,000 passengers on the book; in reality, 2,207. In the Book, there were 24 Lifeboats; in reality, 20.
Months after the Titanic sank, a tramp steamer was traveling through the foggy Atlantic with only a young boy on watch. It came into his head that it had been thereabouts that the Titanic had sunk, and he was suddenly terrified by the thought of the name of his ship - the Titanian. Panic-stricken, he sounded the warning. The ship stopped, just in time: a huge iceberg loomed out of the fog directly in their path. The Titanian was saved. (Source: Mysteries of the Unexplained)

A writer, found the book of her childhood

While American novelist Anne Parrish was browsing bookstores in Paris in the 1920s, she came upon a book that was one of her childhood favorites - Jack Frost and Other Stories. She picked up the old book and showed it to her husband, telling him of the book she fondly remembered as a child. Her husband took the book, opened it, and on the flyleaf found the inscription: "Anne Parrish, 209 N. Weber Street, Colorado Springs." It was Anne's very own book.

A writer's plum pudding

In 1805, French writer Émile Deschamps was treated to some plum pudding by the stranger Monsieur de Fortgibu. Ten years later, he encountered plum pudding on the menu of a Paris restaurant, and wanted to order some, but the waiter told him the last dish had already been served to another customer, who turned out to be de Fortgibu. Many years later in 1832 Émile Deschamps was at a diner, and was once again offered plum pudding. He recalled the earlier incident and told his friends that only de Fortgibu was missing to make the setting complete — and in the same instant the now senile de Fortgibu entered the room.

King Umberto I' double

In Monza, Italy, King Umberto I, went to a small restaurant for dinner, accompanied by his aide-de-camp, General Emilio Ponzia- Vaglia. When the owner took King Umberto's order, the King noticed that he and the restaurant owner were virtual doubles, in face and in build. Both men began discussing the striking resemblances between each other and found many more similarities.
a) Both men were born on the same day, of the same year, (March 14th, 1844).
b) Both men had been born in the same town.
c) Both men married a woman with same name, Margherita.
d) The restauranteur opened his restaurant on the same day that King Umberto was crowned King of Italy.
e) On the 29th July 1900, King Umberto was informed that the restauranteur had died that day in a mysterious shooting accident, and as he expressed his regret, he was then assassinated by an anarchist in the crowd. (Source: Mysteries of the Unexplained)

Sunday Morning Funnies!

Happy Mothers Day........ Mom!

Do you sell Viagra?
A man walked into a pharmacy and up to the young lady pharmacist.
"Do you sell Viagra?", he enquires.
"Yes, we do." replies the pharmacist.
"Does it really work?", asks the man.
"Yes.", she answered.
"And can I get it over the counter?" he continues.
"Probably, if you took two of them!" replied the pharmacist.

Photo of your breasts?
A husband asks his wife, "Can I will take a photo of your breasts and have them framed?"
The wife replies, "Only if I will take a photo of your penis and have it enlarged!"

Mouthwash salesman
A neatly dressed salesman stopped a man in the street and asked -
"Sir, would you like to buy a a bottle of this mouthwash for $200.00?"
Aghast, the man said, "are you NUTS?, that's robbery!"
The salesman seemed hurt and then tries again -
"Sir, since you are a bit irate, I'll sell it to you for 1/2 price at $100.00?
Again, the man replies bluntly - "you must be crazy pal, now go away!"
The salesman then reaches into his briefcase and pulls out 2 brownies and begins munching away on one of them. He tells the irate guy -
"Sir, please share one of my brownies since I have annoyed you so much".
Unwrapping the brownie, the guy takes a bite; suddenly, the guys spits it out and says:
"HEY," he snarled, "this brownie tastes like crap!!!"
"It is!" replied the salesman. "Now do you wanna buy some mouthwash?"

20 dollars
Two men are in a bar getting drunk. Suddenly one of them throws up all over himself.
He says "Oh, no. Now my wife will kill me".
His friend says "Don't worry. Just tuck a twenty dollar bill in your breast pocket and tell your wife that someone threw up on you and gave you twenty dollars for the dry cleaning bill".
So they stay for another couple of hours and get even drunker.
Eventually he reels home and his wife starts to give him a bad time.
"You reek of alcohol and you've thrown up all over yourself, my God you're disgusting" etc.
Speaking very carefully so as not to slur, he says, "Wait. It's not what you think. I only had one drink, but this man was sick on me. He'd obviously had one too many, or else he just couldn't hold his liquor. He was very sorry and he gave me twenty dollars for the cleaning bill. Look in my breast pocket."
She looks in his breast pocket and says, "But this is forty dollars".
"Ah, yes." says the man. "He pee'd in my trousers too".
