Mail is FUBAR

If anyone has tried to send me an e-mail at my madmikey.mu.nu address and it's 'bounced', it's because my blog mail is FUBARed.

For the time being, e-mail can be sent to my old address - which I still keep for some reason - which is: madmikey1-AT-hotmail-DOT-com.

Mass Murder Plot Stopped Cold

Very close call:

'Airlines terror plot' disrupted

A plot to blow up planes in flight from the UK to the US and commit "mass murder on an unimaginable scale" has been disrupted, Scotland Yard has said.

It is thought the plan was to detonate explosive devices smuggled in hand luggage on to as many as 10 aircraft.

Police are searching premises after 21 people were arrested. Home Secretary John Reid said they believed the "main players" were accounted for.

High security is causing delays at all UK airports.

Damn glad someone was on top of this one....

UPDATE: Moxie points out someone who obviously sees the humor in this situation:

Remember, he is the man whose current tagline is, "-- Islam: the Sole Reason it Takes an Hour to Get on a Plane --"

He may have to revise that to, "the sole reason it takes 3-6 hours to get on a plane, if your flight isn't cancelled".

Or, "Islam, the reason your flight may never land".

Last shot, "Islam, the reason you need to taste your own breast milk (and urine) before boarding a flight".

Without sounding like a clichè, I can say from experience that this is the way to deal with 'bad news'.

This is quite possibly the biggest instance of 'Doi!!' in recent memory:

Report says sugary drinks pile on pounds

Americans have sipped and slurped their way to fatness by drinking far more soda and other sugary drinks over the last four decades, a new scientific review concludes.

An extra can of soda a day can pile on 15 pounds in a single year, and the "weight of evidence" strongly suggests that this sort of increased consumption is a key reason that more people have gained weight, the researchers say.

"We tried to look at the big picture rather than individual studies," and it clearly justifies public health efforts to limit sugar-sweetened beverages, said Dr. Frank Hu, who led the report published Tuesday in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

What next - a report that says that dirt has absolutely zero nutritional value if eaten?

Cause & Effect

Offered with no comment (via PDA):

Dixie Chicks Cancel 14 Shows on Tour

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Several concerts on the Dixie Chicks "Accidents & Accusations" tour have been canceled after slow ticket sales, but the group says it has replaced them with other dates.

Kansas City, Houston, St. Louis, Memphis and Knoxville are among 14 cities no longer on the original schedule released in May, according to a revised itinerary posted Thursday on the Dixie Chick's Web site.

Other shows, including Nashville, Los Angeles, Denver and Phoenix, have been pushed back to later dates.

The North American leg of the tour kicked off July 21 in Detroit. Billboard magazine and other trade publications have reported lackluster sales in some markets, particularly in the South and Midwest.

Okay, I do have one comment: cause & effect ladies.....cause & effect.

Well, I know someone will make a yuk-yuk out of it and it might as well start with me:

You know anybody who needs an "anti-stupid" pill?

BERLIN (Reuters) - A German scientist has been testing an "anti-stupidity" pill with encouraging results on mice and fruit flies, Bild newspaper reported Saturday.

It said Hans-Hilger Ropers, director at Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin, has tested a pill thwarting hyperactivity in certain brain nerve cells, helping stabilize short-term memory and improve attentiveness.

"With mice and fruit flies we were able to eliminate the loss of short-term memory," Ropers, 62, is quoted saying in the German newspaper, which has dubbed it the "world's first anti-stupidity pill."

Ahem......okay, now if we can just get it into the Democratic National Convention's kool aid mix.....

Double Feh!

Still not in the mood to blog much these days....feeling tired and trying to get enough sleep.

It isn't working out too well in that arena.

There is lots happening to me (other than being in the hospital) and when I can think of a way to write about it without it sounding like I'm whining, then I post something about it. But I'll give you a hint: bills suck.

UPDATE: Moved back to the top and comments reopened due to popular demand.

Not really in the mood to blog about much of anything.....

Been watching the news to see if there was any change(s) in the Israeli-Hezbollah fracus: only that Israel is starting to get serious. And watching the world's leaders wring their hands over this and having nothing substantial to say except "We need a cease-fire!!".

Sure......just like the last one that allowed Hezbollah to re-arm itself in southern Lebanon.

UPDATE: Okay, these two items still aren't 'blog-worthy', but I have to ask.....why are they even in the news?

Lance Bass of 'N Sync reveals he is gay.

Lindsay Lohan overcome by heat.

[/shaking head]

UPDATE II: While it is a life-sustaining treatment, hemodialysis still sucks ass.
