" But he did not rule out the possibility of a frog being revived after it was frozen.
"I've never heard of it happening with Australian species but there are American frogs that can be defrosted and come back to life," he said."
You know, there is hope for us yet. Someone defrost Nixon and let's get this party started!

Having read this material, I have learned for myself a lot of the new. Thanks http://www.collegeboard.org/
Cabinet maker Mario Philippona designed a range of stylish wooden cupboards, wardrobes and tables using the female anatomy as his inspiration.
His newest piece is a fruit bowl decorated with realistically shaped life-size wooden breasts called 'TittyFruity'.
Other pieces include a wine-glass cupboard in the shape of a pair of large breasts, a table supported by legs moulded from a female model and a bedside drawer which opens by pressing a button in the piece's 'vagina'.
Philippona said: "The shape of a woman, her organic architecture, combined with my passion for wood inspired me to sculpt these sexy designs."
I can hear dear old Uncle Gus as he passes the cranberry sauce, "Just look at them sweet potaters! Haw, Haw, Haw!"
At least it gives us guys a little reminder of what to be thankful for. :-)
... how wonderfully put... "her organic architecture"....

GARY!!! Remove this from your site! Awful!
This is the SECOND time this week I've had to say that to you!

This is about the Bond entry:
I would like to say that Eva Green did an excellent job in Casino Royale. She actually has brains and isn't your stereotypical "skanky Bond girl". I think she is gorgeous in a different way and I want to say that it is because of assholes like you that so many young girls think they're fat and ugly when cleary they're not. But, this is a waste of my time because anyone with an opinion like yours is too stupid to even consider another viewpoint. Perhaps one day the world will undergo a drastic change, doubtful, but I sure would love to see less morons like yourself out there.

The Bond franchise is dead as far as I'm concerned and not simply because their choice of a Bond girl was disappointing (to me, anyway).
There is a multi-faceted formula that Cubby Broccoli followed that made James Bond such a cultural icon. The films have been going downhill since the second Bronan movie. Now you can argue that it's a different world and Bond needs to "adapt" to modern times but I would counter that Bond doesn't need to change. He's part of an earler era that is now gone.
Also, you're making judgements about what I find attractive based on Eva Green. You'd be surprised what I find attractive beyond the photos you normally see here.
And for the record, you sound like a whiny seventeen year old when you throw in "assholes", "stupid" and "moron" to make your point. Grow up.

Star Wars Geeks Demand Recognition From UN
Apparently, "Jedi" is the fourth largest religion in the UK.
OK, did I just write that? The fourth freaking largest religion in the United Kingdom!!!! Are you kidding me? No, I guess they're not.
Â‘We therefore are calling upon the United Nations Association to change November 16 to the UN Interstellar Day of Tolerance, to reflect the religious make-up of our twenty-first century civilisation.
Â‘Tolerance is about respecting difference where ever it lies, including other galaxies. Please don't exclude us from your important work. May the Force be with you.Â’
In the 2001 UK Census 390,000 people listed their religion as Jedi Knight making it the fourth biggest belief in the country.
There are also an estimated 70,000 Jedi knights in Australia, 53,000 in New Zealand and 20,000 in Canada.
WTF? They want to insert the word "interstellar" into the already utopian designation of "UN Day of Tolerance". This is political correctness at its most outrageous.
Look, I'll spot them the religion angle, but by what rationale do they come up with "interstellar". They're from THIS planet. Living in your parents' basement doesn't qualify as interstellar no matter how you have it decorated. The Star Wars Universe is not real. There are no Wookies, no Twi'leks, no Bothans, no Jawas...

Skye should see this. It reminds me of some of those Bombay vids we made.
But I can't stop watching it.
I couldn't stop either; but refuse to push play again. And I am 100% confident that the quality of my life would have been much better if I had never seen this video.

Oh man....I'm with Word on this one. Is there no way I can get a refund on the wasted 1:28 seconds of my life?

An Indian grandmother has revealed she eats a kilo of sand a day to stay fit and healthy.
Ram Rati, 80, considers sand an essential part of her daily diet and eats a kilo of it before breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea
Ram who lives in Chinhar in Lucknow told Asian News International: "When young, I tried it for fun once. Since then, I am used to it. My brothers and relatives pestered me to quit it but it was all in vain. I eat on an average around one or one-and-a-half kilos of sand per day."
Her granddaughter Shikha said: "The doctor said if she has no health problems, let her eat. We think it suits her health."
Talk about your dietary fiber. I'd say this woman could probably pass just about anything through her system at this point.
"You made love to a hedgehog? Doesn't that hurt?"
"Hurt? You have no idea! He never writes, he never calls..."
Somebody had to say it and I am so sorry that that somebody was me.

Yes, it's a sculpture of the first turd squeezed out by the spawn of TomKat!
Here's the caption to this A/P gem:
This photo released by the Capla Kesting Gallery in August 2006 shows a sculpture purportedly cast from 19-week old Suri Cruise's first bowel movement. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes finally put Hollywood at ease by publishing the first photo of their daughter Suri, four months after her birth, in Vanity Fair magazine's October issue.
I don't know about you but this doesn't put me at ease. Not in the least! It freaking creeps me out!
GROSS! And one day she'll be old enough to understand that her poop was bronzed...how much therapy will fix that? Is there enough?

I think it's a fake...have you ever seen a young baby's diaper? Until they start eating solid food, there would be no way there could have something like that to bronze, Scientology or no.
Maybe it's Tom's.

The sexual tension is apparently so high in regions where sheiks take a draconian view of Sharia Law, that they feel the sight of naked goats poses an unacceptable temptation. They blame the goats.
Not only that, but at a grocery store in east Baghdad, the grocer and 3 others were shot to death and the grocery store firebombed because the grocer had "suggestively arranged his vegetables".
Have I mentioned how much I love my country, lately? Not that we don't get our own "news of the weird" over here...but, God bless America and our *ahem* liberal attitudes and acceptance of naked goats and erotic vegetables!
Some believe that a massive cover-up is in play as the Bush White House begins shifting blame from it's own inner circle to those innocent children enjoying a days recreation. The Bush White House declined comment.
Senator Hilary Clinton, named for the intrepid explorer who tamed Mount Everest a few years after her birth, opined that "Such tactics are common in this administration. When we democrats take back the White House we'll show the American people what it's like to have their taxes raised and...I mean, what it's like to surrender to the enemy...I mean, what it's like to subvert the US Constituition to International whimsy...I mean..." Her head exploded shortly afterward. Film at 11.

Now That's Some Nice Wool - It's Friday WTF?
Polish grannies are putting their crocheting skills to a new use - making G strings!
No longer able to sell their hand-crafted doilies and table clothes, women in the tiny Polish mountain village of Koniakow turned their crocheting skills to making sexy lingerie.
And the business has proved such a success that the crochetiers have now launched an online shop for people around the world to buy the knitted underwear.
Tadeusz Rucki, who funds the granny g-string firm, said: "People aren't only mad about g-strings in traditional white crochet, but also in red and black."
But the head of the local Society for Folk Art, Helena Kamieniarz, is not happy with the new business, saying: "What is being done to our old traditions is a disgrace. The art of crochet is not intended for making such garments."
I found this pic on a search under "crochet". The lace looks nice, the girl is devoid of _____ ____ & they don't pay crochet artists enough to make a living at selling table cloths or doilies, but these gals are making money at selling lace using ___ to promote their art. What else do we expect them to do?
After all, at least they're not on Welfare!

Seriously, though. Apparently, there is a political party in the Netherlands dedicated to the passage of a law that lowers the age of sexual consent from 16 to 12.
A judge recently overturned a ban on this "political party" which is headed up by some pervert who molested an 11-year old boy. It's called the PNVD party (an acronym for "Brotherly Love, Freedom and Diversity" - yech). This is really nothing more than an out-and-about version of the Super Adventure Club from South Park.
The judge's rationale was that it was up to the voters to decide the appeal of such a group. Fine, I agree in principle. But hear me now and believe me later; if this group of sickos gets more than 2% of the vote in the next Dutch election, I am taking old Nigel's declaration to heart.

I was quoting the movie, not the Seinfeld episode. The 1988 Australian film "A Cry In The Dark" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0094924/), starring Meryl Streep and Sam Neill, is where Elaine got that line. The problem is she wasn't quoting it correctly.
In the film, after the incident of the missing child a woman approaches the older sibling and asks point blank "Did a dingo take your bay-bee?" The movie was based on a true story.
The Dead Chihuahua Sketch
Remember the Monty Python "Dead Parrot" Sketch? The one where John Cleese pounds the stiff deceased bird on the pet shop counter? "Hello Polly!!!!! Wakey, Wakey!!!! I've got a lovely fresh cuttle fish for you!"
Well here's story almost as funny but it's true. A woman in Missouri attacked a dog breeder with a stiff deceased dog!
"A woman angry that her new puppy had died pushed her way into a dog breeder's home and repeatedly hit her on the head with the dead Chihuahua, authorities said.
The 33-year-old woman told police she had taken the puppy to a veterinarian, who said it was only 4 weeks old and needed to be returned to its mother. But before she could return the puppy, it died.
Early Wednesday, the woman went to the breeder's home, pushed her way inside and began fighting with the breeder as she tried to make her way to the basement to get another puppy, police said.
The breeder wrestled the woman out of her house to the front porch, where the woman then hit the breeder over the head numerous times with the dead puppy, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported, citing police.
As the woman drove away, she waved the dead puppy out of the car's sunroof and yelled threats at the breeder, police said. She later called the breeder and threatened her and her family, according to court records."
Well this one definitely qualifies for my weekly Friday WTF? award.
