"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

"Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead." - Benjamin Franklin


Orthodox Jews launch "kosher" search engine - "Religiously devout Jews barred by rabbis from surfing the Internet may now "Koogle" it on a new "kosher" search engine... The site, at www.koogle.co.il, omits religiously objectionable material, such as most photographs of women which Orthodox rabbis view as immodest, Altman said. Its links to Israeli news and shopping sites also filter out items most ultra-Orthodox Israelis are forbidden by rabbis to have in their homes, such a television sets... Nothing can be posted on the Jewish Sabbath, when religious law bans all types of work and business, Altman said. "If you try to buy something on the Sabbath, it gets stuck and won't let you.""

DIY Invitation: Jill & Matt - "No fancy graphics nor multi-color ensemble here. But by golly this has gotta be one of the most brilliant, creative, darling, type-a-licious, as-unique-and-personal-as-it can-get [wedding] invites I’ve ever seen."

Pixar grants girl's dying wish to see 'Up' - "From the minute Colby saw the previews to the Disney-Pixar movie Up, she was desperate to see it. Colby had been diagnosed with vascular cancer about three years ago... she would die soon and was too ill to be moved to a theater to see the film... The company flew an employee with a DVD of Up... to the Curtins’ Huntington Beach home on June 10 for a private viewing of the movie."
My favourite bit: "Colby couldn't see the screen because the pain kept her eyes closed so her mother gave her a play-by-play of the film"

Everyone Agrees: Women Are Hard to Read - "Researchers at Indiana University showed video clips from 24 different speed dates... Both men and women are able to gauge a man's interest in a woman, but are equally baffled when it comes to figuring out if a woman is interested in a man. In fact, a flip of a coin would be almost as accurate in predicting a woman's romantic interest on a date... "Being coy forces the men to spend more time interacting with the woman, because they are unsure if they have successfully courted her," Place said. "Therefore, the woman has more time to gather information about her date.""
The implications of female mate choice strike again; women can't read women: even women dont know what other women are thinking
Everyone can tell when men are interested
No one can tell when women are interested

PETA miffed at President Obama's fly "execution" - ""Believe it or not, we've actually been contacted by multiple media outlets wanting to know PETA's official response to the executive insect execution," a blog on the group's website explained. "In a nutshell, our position is this: He isn't the Buddha, he's a human being, and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act." The group has sent Obama a device that traps a fly so it can then be released outside."
The Buddha can kill flies?

100 pupils walk out of high school in protest at short skirt ban - "Teachers have warned pupils at Upton-by-Chester High School in Cheshire that unless hem-lines became more modest, they would be forced to wear trousers instead. But scores of girls - and a few boys - refused to comply and organised an angry demonstration using social networking site Facebook."

Tadpole rain in Japan ::: Pink Tentacle - Not quite raining frogs, but...

Catholic bishops in US ban Japanese reiki - "Reiki, an alternative Japanese therapy with a growing band of followers in the west, is "unscientific" and "inappropriate" for use in Catholic institutions, according to America's bishops... the therapy "lacks scientific credibility" and could expose people to "malevolent forces"."

'Atheists 'not fully human', says Cardinal Cormac Murphy O'Connor'

Tenga Egg - "The Tenga Egg is also a multi purpose life tool too. One use is a sleeping bag for Figma figures... They can also be used as gloves for Dollfies... Tenga Egg as an iPod case... If you have pets then you can also use them as protective shoes."

Woman cancels wedding after finding fiance was porn star

Che Guevara's grand-daughter poses semi-nude for animal rights... with just a string of carrots to preserve her dignity - "Her grandfather fought for his idea of freedom, equality and a better world. Lydia Guevara is simply fighting for attention... 'It's a homage of sorts to her late grandfather,' said a PETA spokesman. 'It very much evokes the tag line of the ad, which is "Join the vegetarian revolution".'"
More like an insult. This is worse than selling Vodka

Mr Brown is a jobless man like Yowe55 ah?
