Fun with Google

I don’t know what to do with this information, except perhaps cringe a little.

On the other hand, it’s nice to see that Michael Medved is blogging again.

And on an unrelated note, the Sports Gal never fails to amuse with a heartfelt rant:

I have a bone to pick with the NFL: It’s totally unfair to play Sunday and Monday games when they fall on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. How is it right to give every man in the country a free pass on two of the most hectic days of the year….

So thanks, NFL, for ruining the 2006 holiday season. Maybe next year you can schedule the Super Bowl on my birthday or Valentine’s Day.

Feminism kills

Out of all of the activities, only housework significantly reduced the risk of both pre- and post-menopausal women getting the disease.

Housework cut breast cancer risk by 30% among the pre-menopausal women and 20% among the post-menopausal women.

The women were studied over an average of 6.4 years, during which time there were 3,423 cases of breast cancer.

Perhaps it is the specific form of light exercise that housework offers. More likely, women who live the sort of traditional lives that involve running a household and doing housework are less likely to do the sort of things that spark breast cancer, unlike your average post-feminist skank with a career and a gym membership.

Because dosing yourself with estrogen daily and having abortions can’t possibly be related to anything bad, like breast cancer, oh no. That’s just the Patriarchy’s mysogynistic scientists trying to keep women oppressed, barefoot and doing the dishes, a proper feminist science wouldn’t be allowed to publish anything that a woman doesn’t want to hear.

I’m down with that

Dear feminist activist,

Imagine being confined to a cell for 17 hours a day, with little or no access to reading, writing, or learning – or talks with friends.

Imagine that the Bible is the only reading material you are given. When there is a copy of a magazine, imagine that you have to share it with 699* other women.

Now imagine receiving your own personal copy of Ms. Magazine, knowing someone on the outside cared enough to send it and that more will come.

You can make this happen with a tax deductible gift to the Ms. Magazine Prison and Domestic Violence Shelter Program, a fund dedicated to creating a link with women who are isolated in prisons, or in domestic violence shelters where there is safety but rarely access to supportive books, magazines and words of understanding from the outside world.

Oh, sorry, I thought they were proposing jailing all the feminists, which was why they’d have to send Ms Magazine…. Never mind.

Anyhow, if women in jail are like all the normal women outside of jail, they’d much prefer Us Weekly and People to Ms. Come to think of it, I’d prefer Us and People myself.

Whatever will that rascal George Clooney do next?

Sometimes you wonder

Fred Taylor doesn’t seem to have been paying much attention from the sidelines:

Fred Taylor, who is under contract for the 2007 season at a $2.55 million base salary, said Thursday he wants a contract extension in the $5 million range. Taylor said he won’t happy if the Jaguars want him to play out the final season of his contract. As a last resort, if he doesn’t get a new deal, he said, “I’d ask to be traded.”

Given the way in which Maurice Jones-Drew made a very serious run at Offensive Rookie of the Year this season, I can only hope that Freddie sees the writing on the wall and is attempting to put a proactive spin on things. I can’t see any way that he gets that sort of extension from the Jags, in fact, I didn’t expect him to be the starter in Jacksonville next year anyhow.

Only US Senators with presidential ambitions and Hollywood actresses seem to have more distant relationship with reality than NFL players.
