A little something that showed up in my spam folder. From a yahoo account.

Mostly links to click for more information.

Just a data point. 8)

At our Boy Scout Troop, initiation was getting pantsed and then whacked across the testicles with a broom handle.

I never joined up.
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Nope. Never was in the Scouts. No not the gay thing. It's militaristic, see?
Unlike some of the things my parents believed, I'm still with them on this one.

Because I'm such a sweet guy I sometimes laugh at your jokes even when they are not funny.

But for that to happen, the jokes have to be identifiable as such. :p

Some law firms are advertising ad nauseam on the OTA lesser channels (bounce, true crime, etc) for victims to join the class action lawsuit. Some of those commercials go on for five minutes or so. There's some 30 minute infomercials too. There's roughly a billion dollars at stake (set aside by BSA as part of the bankruptcy) to be shared by everyone in the class ... minus the 30%? that goes to the lawyers. The deadline for filing or becoming part of the class is Nov 16.

Sigh, all those knots, all those tents filling up with rain, Jesus on a fucking bicycle. I still had to learn to jerk off on my own.
... The stars were suns, but so far away they were just little points of light ... The scale of the universe suddenly opened up to me. It was a kind of religious experience. There was a magnificence to it, a grandeur, a scale which has never left me. Never ever left me.
