The Darwin Awards were conceived for guys such as this caller to the Rush Limbaugh Show.
Those of us who actually have worked in the science fields took the real science courses in college and grad school, and we had alternate names for the ‘science’ courses, which people in other fields took just to satisfy general requirements.
For those other students, there were the natural science classes…. which might be earth science, environmental sciences, and the one in which Al Gore scored a D at Harvard…….. “Mans Place in Nature”.
When he was a senior, AlGore gave it a second try, and got a C+ in Natural Sciences 118.
Gore’s college board achievement testing yielded stellar scores of 488/800 in physics, and 519/800 in chemistry.
All of this amazing background and training is the basis for Gore’s incorrect conclusions about the weather (climate change), for which he obtained a Nobel PEACE (can we stay on topic?) prize.
(Obama’s academic records are apparently too abysmal to present to the public, if they exist at all.)
………...for her planned parenthood commercial.
You can check out the parody video of Scarlett’s ad before Youtube Yanks It.
That’s what it’s all about for Chris. The rest of us are pondering other attributes of our politicians than their capacity for sending a thrill up our legs.
Matthews has also stated that he would not want an interview with Huntsman, Pawlenty or Romney. He’s just not interested in any possible future presidents if they come from the opposing party.
Those guys just leave his leg COLD, and feeling quite dead.
Anita Wooten-Francis, an asssistant teacher of special ed instructer at the Canarsie school in Brooklyn, has filed suit against the city, the DOE, and principal George Andrews for religious discrimination and unspecified damages stemming from her termination.
Wooten-Francis cites a plethora of improprieties occurring at the school, many involving the behavior of the principal torwards her personally, and directly related to her personal religious practices. For 16 years prior to 2004, she experienced no difficulty at the school regarding her teaching or religious practice.
The 52 year old instructor states that she never influenced the children with her religion, and that the charges leading to her firing are false.
She is accused of grabbing a student at the school, which is said to be implausible due to the nerve damage in her hands and feet. She is described by a fellow teacher (who fears reprisal) as dedicated to the kids, a “fantastic lady” who “wouldn’t hurt a fly”.
From the NY Post:
“I’m a Christian,” Wooten-Francis said. “I believe Jesus Christ is my lord and savior . . . I know that I’m trusting God, and the truth will come out.”
It’s a match…. Dominique Strauss-Khan’s DNA and the sample found on the Sofitel housekeeper’s shirt.
According to investigators, Strauss Khan asked the maid, “Don’t you know who I am?”
Nicolette Soto was able to carry an ectopic pregnancy and deliver a live baby at 32 weeks. The delivery of Azelan Cruz Perfecto , weighing in at 2 lb, 14 oz, occurred at Banner Good Samaritan hospital in Phoenix, AZ.
This kind of success is unexpected, and most women will have the embryo (with surrounding structures) removed, or have the embryo killed using methotrexate. Under most circumstances of ectopic pregnancy, a rupture will occur which could result in the death of the mother.
The article does not describe well the location of the fetus in this case. Here’s the quote:
“Doctors said the pregnancy is rare. They were still determining where the egg first implanted itself and where it grew outside the uterus, Holloway said.
Surgeons believe Soto had a corneal (sic) pregnancy, where the egg grew just outside the uterus. The area is surrounded by walls that are not supposed to stretch enough to accommodate a baby, said Rodney Edwards, one of Soto’s surgeons at Good Samaritan.”
If you want to learn more about the supposed location of this fetus within the mom, google CORNUAL pregnancy.
Perhaps technology will one day permit routinely moving ectopic embryos to a safer location in the uterus, allowing them to continue to develop.
The full size pic at the link is worth a look.
The hospital has been fully evacuated. Nurses on the sixth floor said they had advanced warning, went through the steps of the tornado precautions, and then the windows blew out and ‘people were ‘blown across the hall’.
