It's been an interesting bunch of weeks as I've repaired the
site after a hack took half it down. Well, not really a "Hack".
It's not hacking when your old web host gives them the password.
It was the result of a sad Teen Love Affair gone wrong, and
my cousin Jesen, who helps me with the site about 3 minutes
a month. The Person Who Did This got mad at him for breaking
up with her with the excuse that he didn't have time to do
much but go to school anymore, so she got back at him by getting
my password, thinking if the site was too much of a mess,
he'd have time. She admitted it after only one phone call,
so I do give her credit. She cried, even. She said she called
my old web host and giggled a lot to the tech guy, and said
she forgot her password. As if I giggle? Me?! Are they stupid?
(well. ..actually..) I was never 17 so it's all lost on me.
I've now moved my site, sent a lot of nasty mail to the concerned
parties and well.. . payback was extracted. I can't give out
details. It wasn't pretty but damn, we're good. Suffice it
to say it wasn't the actions of mature, calm adults but then
payback is a...you know.
A big thank you to Jesen and Sloop for helping me get things
up again. Also, a certain young lady asked what she could
do to apologize but found most of my suggestions distasteful.
(Rifle cleaning equipment was only mentioned in one of them...I
wasn't overly nasty..really.) I said awwww ...that's OK. I
said to prove no hard feelings, I'd give her email address
out and everyone would write to her and tell her it was OK,
too - 34 printed pages of broken links is not a problem. We're
all adults here! If you want to let her know you forgive her
as much as I do, you can write her at Andi_Marcoli@excite.com.
Don't forget to send her hugs from me :D
I would like to brag a second and say that the site was written
up in SHIFT magazine (Canada) as one of the "100 Best
Websites for 2003". They were even nice enough to mail
me a copy. It was also in the Toronto Sun, the Seattle Intelligencer,
the Australian Netguide. I never hear a thing on my end and
thank those of you who scan me articles or let me know. As
promised long ago, when I make my first $1000 I'll buy all
of you a cup of coffee. I'm looking for a 3200 cup Mr. Coffee
Maker and hope to find one soon. Just remember - friends don't
let friends drink decaf.
Thank you all for the nice mail (99.9% of it is wonderful)
and stopping by last year and making my "I'll get 30
hits a week" web site into a lot more than I ever imagined
(I think last I looked, some sections have over 1 million
hits and the Jackson page is going on 1.8 million). I'll be
so stuck up from all this I'll soon start insisting the kid
at the gas station call me "M'am" instead of "dude".
Hi to all the new people!
FOUR WINGED FOSSIL GLIDERS
Six fossils of birds that lived 130 million
years ago have been discovered in China and their find is
throwing a huge question mark into the fossil flight record
- these birds have four wings. Discovered in Liaoning, it
seems to give credibility to the theory that what we know
as "birds" were gliders before they actually developed
the ability to fly.
I just saw the most amazing display of chem-trails.
The moon is waning but is still pretty full and there are
4 chem-trails that look like they begin at a single point
and fan out to the left in an arc in front of the moon. Then
there are a few more that run across the top sort of horizontally.
The moon was a dingy color light brown that just sort of lurks
behind all the criss crossing. It looks oddly like a person
trying to draw their own cirrus clouds at different altitudes.
Just thought you'd be interested. Later :) (Hi Josh!)
With all the spraying we've been getting here I'm waiting
for them to write "Hah! You idiots!" in the
sky pretty soon. They might as well. But don't forget - we're
all imagining it...::koff::
FROM THE "PEOPLE I WANT TO SHAKE
THE HANDS OF" FILES
U.S. District Judge Robert Sweet threw out the
lawsuit filed in New York last year by several families who
said McDonald's was liable for them not raising their kids
properly. Oh, did I say that out loud? I mean, they filed
a suit and said McDonald's "unhealthy meals" were
at fault because their kids were over weight. The plaintiffs
included the parents of two teenagers whose obesity caused
them to already develop severe health problems including heart
disease. One 14-year-old girl is 4-foot-10 and weighs 170
pounds and two other teens are 5'9" and 270 pounds and
5'3" and 200 pounds. They say they have eaten at McD's
several times a week for years and want more done to publicize
the dietary content of their products, including an educational
program on the dangers of eating certain items.
Another person who filed suit but also included Wendy's, KFC
and Burger King is Caesar Barber, age 56 and 270 pounds. He
said he developed diabetes and had two heart attacks after
eating fast-food "four or five times a week" for
decades. Even after the first heart attack.
The lawsuit stated that "children often are unable to
resist the chain's playgrounds, Happy Meals, and toy promotions
often tied to the release of popular movies. Children clearly
are not capable of making health-related decisions, McDonald's
tries to attract children and has an obligation to them."
Walt Riker, a McDonald's spokesman said, "These suits
would have you believe that these kids have been robotically
going to fast-food restaurants every day and that there's
no one around to stop them," he said, adding that "most
people should know that eating a Big Mac is different than
eating lettuce." He added that there is comprehensive
nutrition information available on the company's Web site.
The U.S. Surgeon general said that said obesity kills an estimated
300,000 Americans each year and costs $117 billion in health-related
costs. There are nearly twice as many overweight children
and almost three times as many overweight adolescents as there
were in 1980.
I have been following
this lawsuit because to me it was one of the Mothers Of Stupid
Ass Lawsuits. As I munched on my Double-Fudge Sugar Coated
Ribbons 'O Lard Ice Cream, I marveled at how these people
really dropped the ball
at placing the correct blame here: architects.
It is obvious to me that some kind of Area 51 technology has
joined forces with some Evil Faction of Renegade Architects
who, secretly working for McDonald's, have invented an invisible,
undetectable hypnotic tracker beam that locks on innocent
passersby and sucks them into the McDs, right up to the counter.
Once inside, technology developed from those late night infomercials
(code name: McOmmonSense) takes control of the hapless person's
very will, even wiping out basic grammar school science like
"9 calories to a gram of fat" and "Grease is
not a food group". It causes them to order a meal that
even a suet-eating wren would turn down (it's that name! "Happy"
Meal! My GOD have they no mercy?!) and get this -
it makes them eat it!
I know, I know...you're slapping yourself
upside your head for not thinking of this yourself.
Well, this is what I do all night instead of sleeping, so
I'm honored to pass the wisdom on to you.
THIS IS SO SWEET...
Two year old Elliot O'Sullivan was upset when
a winter storm missed his area and wasn't able to make a snowman.
His 24-year old dad, Shaun, a window fitter, happened to work
a few hours away where it did snow, so before he started the
110 mile drive home that night, he packed his van with the
white stuff and drove the whole way with the heater off, so
Elliot could make his snowman after all.
That's one hell of a nice Dad.
FIRST JAW TRANSPLANT DONE
For the first time a jawbone was successfully
transplanted into an 80-year old man who had lost his due
to facial cancer. The operation was done at the Regina Elena
Institute in Rome and took 11 hours but so far, so good. The
implanted jawbone was acquired from an organ donor.
SWAMP GAS, CAMERA FAULTS, WEATHER
Mike Murry and the UFO group he founded, Euroseti,
will give a public presentation of what they say are "hundreds
of UFOs" on January 26-28th that have been photographed
by SOHO, the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory spacecraft
that is a million miles from Earth taking pictures of the
sun. Murray got the images from a Spanish businessman who
has a huge satellite dish in his yard. NASA first dismissed
the photos as camera faults.
Murray says, "The first thing we did when we got the images
was enhance them and we proved this wasn't the case. Some
of the pictures are real crackers. They are the archetypal
flying saucers - disc-shaped objects with some kind of glow
around them. The glowing, saucer-shaped "craft"
were apparently moving in a way that suggested intelligent
control. Many have a pulsing light and leave a trail behind
...LIGHTHOUSES. YEAH, THAT'S IT...
The details of a UFO sighting that happened
on December 27, 1980 near Suffolk, England have been made
public through the American Freedom of Information Act. Called
The Rendlesham File, the report was only known by 20 people
who were now able to requested copies of the file.
The report was written by USAF Lt. Col. Charles I Halt who
was the Base Commander at RAF Bentwaters who investigated
the sighting and witnesses which included two base security
police patrolmen and a third patrolman. Lt. Col, Halt's report
said, "The individuals reported seeing a strange glowing
object in the forest. The object was described as being metallic
in appearance and triangular in shape, approximately two to
three meters across the base and approximately two meters
high." It emitted a "red sun-like light" as
it moved through trees and then hovered, giving off pulsing
blue light that sent nearby farm animals into a "frenzy".
In the morning, Lt. Col. Halt and his men discovered three
7-inch depressions and a radiation level 10 times the normal
level was present. The Ministry of Defense, who must have
the same comic writers as NASA, said the "UFO" could
have been the beam of the Orford Ness lighthouse "with
distortions being caused by the beam having been seen through
FROM THE COSMIC IRONY FILES
A rooster, trained for the gambling 'sport' of
cockfighting, killed it's handler as it was turned loose in
the Philippines. When released to the ring the rooster, equipped
with razor-sharp steel spikes strapped to its legs which aid
in the animals ripping each other to shreds, instead went
after it's handler, slashing his thigh and groin. The man
bleed to death before they got him to the hospital. No word
on what the odds had been.
SIMPSONS MAKE HISTORY
Change that trivia entry for the longest running
situation comedy - the cartoon Simpsons just got renewed for
two more years until May, 2005 which beats out current record
holder "The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet,"
which aired from 1952 to 1966.
"Isn't that extraordinary?" said Fox Entertainment
President Gail Berman. "It says something about the quality
control on a show that seems to be able to garner a new generation
of fans every few years while still maintaining the core audience."
THE WORLD'S RAREST DIAMOND FOUND
It's the only one of it's color in the world
and and no one is sure where it was unearthed - maybe the
Amazon basin. The 2 to 5 carat "intensely purple crimson"
stone was brought to J.D. Boles, director-general of the British
Gemmological Institute in London to evaluate by an "anonymous
owner". J.D. says it is priceless and "weight for
weight, (this is) the most valuable natural object in the
world". (Although people waiting for heart or liver transplants
The color that was most rare for a diamond until this stone
turned up is the red diamond, of which only 10 are known to
exist. If you want to buy one, they start at about $4 million
BAT SPIT MIGHT PREVENT STROKE
Scientists at Monash University in Victoria,
Australia think a compound found in the saliva of vampire
bats might be used to as an incredibly effective anti-clotting
medicine for stroke victims.
Contrary to what we read in comic books, vampire bats don't
clamp on to the jugular veins of people and in great spurts
or blood and terrible screaming, suck them dry. They land
on animals and painlessly cut a small flap of skin away from
the victim and then lap the blood up. This all goes undetected
by the victim because the bat's teeth are surgical sharp and
the anti-clotting agent, named Desmodus rotundus salivary
plasminogen activator (I didn't make that up) prevents the
blood from forming fibers which clot it. Studies also showed
the bat spit doesn't cause further brain cell damage like
the currently used drug can. No word on how long you have
to kiss the bat for an effective dose.
FROM THE LET'S UNLEASH UNKNOWN MICROBES
A team at the University of Chicago has taken
28,000 year old bacteria and algae that was found frozen in
an ice core and brought it back to life. The ice core is from
Lake Vida in Antarctica and was brought up from a depth of
39 feet. They said the research may help in the search for
life in the frozen lakes on Mars, the current excuse for NASA/the
government getting piles of money to do things with our tax
dollars these days.
More scientists, funded by NASA, will go back in 2004 with
sterilized equipment and drill the entire 62 feet of frozen
ice that covers the lake tin hopes of hitting the liquid water
and bringing up samples chock full of things we haven't had
active on Earth for tens of thousands of years and have no
immunity to and know nothing about.
SPEAKING OF SPIT... DOG HOLDS SLOBBERDOG
Brandy the boxer has the world's longest dog
tongue - 17 inches (43 cm) and her owner John says seeing
her eat is an experience unto itself. Brandy made it into
the Guiness Book of World Records and even gets tan lines
on her tongue, which is more than a mouthful. She said she's
tired of going to bars and hearing, "Hey, can you lick
your eyebrows" jokes from guys.
Headline that cracked me up: "Professional musicians
have more grey matter in a part of the brain involved in processing
music, say scientists". Ya think?
EARTH PATTERNS NOT MAN MADE, GUY SAYS*
Mark Kessler of the Earth Sciences Department
at the University of California, Santa Cruz thinks these patterns
aren't man-made as some have thought, but are made by what's
called "forest heave" - ice freezing and thawing,
sorting and squeezing the different sizes of rocks and soil.
Using a computer program he thinks he's successfully duplicated
me this: "A man in Cape Coral, Florida was diagnosed
with Smallpox recently. He admitted himself to Cape Coral
Hospital, which was shortly thereafter shut down and quarantined
until the man was put into quarantine himself. After the initial
media hype, nothing else was heard. Not even a "wasn't
really smallpox" article in the paper. Im thinking somebody
high up put the hush hush on it.". . . .
Well, Dude, it seems they
did decide it wasn't small pox, but they don't know what it
is and they managed to wreck the life of the poor lady who
has it in the process. Not only did they somehow assume it
was smallpox but also said she is contagious, another thing
they didn't know for a fact.
This happened Oct. 26, 2002. Anne Hawkins, 59, was admitted
to the hospital with sores, rash, vomiting and diarrhea. They
quarantined two hospitals and anyone who came in contact with
her, which is procedure. They tested Anne for smallpox, measles,
spat, reactions to any medications and chicken pox. All came
up negative. After two weeks they let her go home where she
is still sick, is getting new sores and the other symptoms.
They don't know what to do so give her antibiotics. Anne said
all this attention about smallpox has caused her friends to
abandon her, has ruined her life and she now lives like a
leper as everyone is terrified of catching this from her,
having heard she's contagious. Perhaps the hospital should
have kept it's mouth shut until they found out for sure.
There has been an epidemic of "strange rashes" and
people being diagnosed with immune system illnesses - MS,
Lupus, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Crohn's.
The kicker is they are all acquired diseases and caused by
a handful of mycoplasmas (a bacteria), the kinds which some
have said they have found in chemtrail spray.
Coincidence? I don't wonder - I'm convinced.
