who is cory kennedy?

She's 17, worked as an intern for a club photographer, got discovered by some fashion geeks. Parties with Paris and Lindsey, people look to her for fashion advice and she became a worldwide celebrity featured in the New York and Los Angeles Times before her mother found out and grounded her. Actually seems like a nice kid despite it all. It's a fascinating story with maybe a little Chance the Gardener thrown in there too.

Listen to Radiohead - Drunken Punch Up at a Wedding

Is it just me or can this guy just not sing at all?
Question is .. Why do I love this song?

I'm no fan of American Idol or that "style" of singing, yet try to imagine Thom Yorke showing up warbling like that for the "judges". That would make the blooper reel for sure. I can just hear Simon Cowell telling him he has no talent and yet...
According to Wikipedia:
"Radiohead's latest and sixth album, "Hail to the Thief", reached sales of 300,000 during its first week of retail availability, according to Billboard. Although the figures are only high enough to earn it the third spot on the Billboard 200, they are nevertheless higher than Radiohead's two preceding records in their first week: "Kid A"'s 207,000 copies entered at No. 1, while "Amnesiac" debuted at No. 3 with 231,000 copies."

Conservapedia - I wish I was kidding...

Conservapedia is an online encyclopedia for conservatives that like their facts a little more "Bibley" and a lot less "Facty".

For a real hoot, check out the contortions they go through to prove Dinosaurs co-existed with man. Better still how the Kangaroo made it from Noah's Ark to Australia.

From their page:

Tired of the LIBERAL BIAS every time you search on Google and a Wikipedia page appears? Now it's time for the Conservatives to get our voice out on the internet!

Conservapedia began in November 2006, as the class project for a World History class of 58 advanced homeschooled and college-bound students meeting in New Jersey.

Conservapedia has since grown enormously, including contributors nationwide. Conservapedia already has over one-half the number of entries as the Oxford Dictionary of World History. Conservapedia is rapidly becoming one of the largest and most reliable online educational resources of its kind.

FBI Misuses Patriot Act

Didn't see this coming at all....
The FBI is guilty of "serious misuse" of the power to secretly obtain private information under the Patriot Act, a government audit said Friday.

The Justice Department's inspector general looked at the FBI's use of national security letters, in which agents demand personal and business information about individuals -- such as financial, phone, and Internet records -- without court orders.

Geography survey

Last month a worldwide survey was conducted by the UN.
The only question asked was :
Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?

The survey was a failure

In Africa they didn't know what "food" meant.
In Eastern Europe they didn't now what "honest" meant.
In Western Europe they didn't know what "shortage" meant.
In China they didn't know what "opinion" meant.
In the Middle East they didn't know what "solution" meant.
And in the USA they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.
