Japanese Country-Blues Busker in Australia

It's not every day you see a Japanese man singing country-blues in Australia. He's actaully pretty darn good too.

Astronomers Discover The Oldest Galaxy Yet

Some astronomers using the Hubble Telescope recently found a galaxy with the greatest redshift that's ever been recorded. Using the redshift pattern as a guide, they were able to determine that the age of this galaxy was born only 500 million years after the big bang. It's roughly 13.2 billion light-years away.

Imagine, driving a car that went 671 million miles per hour and driving it for 13.2 billion years. I ask you, might that not as well be forever? Some things are just unthinkable.

The Wacky World of Elvis

I found this photo online last night just messing around. I don't know why but it just struck me as hilarious. Turns out that Elvis Presley was the world's biggest fan of the TV show—Bonanza. So one day he drove over to the set and actually asked Loren Green if he can have his picture taken with the guys. I mean, just the thought of Elvis walking up to Dan Blocker and saying, "Hey Hoss, let's you and me be pals!"

The End of the World

Last night I had two of the strangest and most eerie dreams about the world coming to an end. I've had such dreams before but not for a long time. All I remember about last nights dreams was that in both of them reality was coming undone and there weren't many people around anymore. The Earth beneath my feet was becoming slushy like Jell-O, and everything was falling apart. It would only last a couple of days longer. It was as though things were losing their substance.

I wonder if this has anything in common with my... visions isn't the right word, but it will have to do for now. Almost every night as I'm getting into bed, I immediately have this quick flash of dead, dried out flesh and other tissues before my mental eyes. It only lasts a split second. The tissues are always a little different, but always nasty, ugly looking things like a mummy's flesh. I wonder what the heck it means, if anything.

Prodigal: "Boxes"

This was a great song by a great 80s band called Prodigal.

They sleep in boxes
They live in shopping carts
They've got dirty faces
And runny eyes, and lonely hearts

They hide in overcoats
Behind the subway stairs
Chameleon door stoops
We never even saw them there

And everybody needs somebody
Someone to love, someone to share
A merry dream, a secret thought
For most of us it's all we've got, it's all we've got
Everybody needs someone

They've got the motorcars
They've got the penthouse suits
Live near Rodeo Drive
And sleep in beds as wide as streets

They've got the blue blood
They've got the right stuff
They've got it all
But still in all, it's not quite enough

Cause everybody needs somebody
Someone to love, someone to share
A sacred dream, a secret thought
For most of us it's all we've got
Everybody needs someone
Everybody needs someone

Fourteen Decapitated Bodies Found In Acapulco

I'm as sick as can be with the flu right now, but sometimes you've got to get off your butt and do something whether you feel like it or not. There's probably not much room in Heaven for lazy slobs.

Over the weekend twenty seven people were killed (thus far anyway) in Acapulco due to drug gang activities. Fifteen were decapitated. Over 30,000 have died since President Felipe Calderon launched an offensive against cartels in late 2006. Many of them have been decapitated recently. I really wish the bleeding heart libs would keep in mind the kind of people that are streaming in across the border illegally every day. People that they want to make permanent citizens. It's no good saying that only a few of them are bad people. Nearly 30% of all convicted felons in the USA are illegal aliens.

The following information is compiled from Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Homeland Security reports:

83% of warrants for murder in Phoenix are for illegal aliens.
86% of warrants for murder in Albuquerque are for illegal aliens.
75% of those on the most wanted list in Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Albuquerque are illegal aliens.
24.9% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals.
40.1% of all inmates in Arizona detention centers are Mexican nationals.
48.2% of all inmates in New Mexico detention centers are Mexican nationals.
29% (630,000) convicted illegal alien felons fill our State and Federal prisons at a cost of $1.6 billion annually.
53% plus of all investigated burglaries reported in California, New Mexico, Nevada, Arizona, and Texas are perpetrated by illegal aliens.
50% plus of all gang members in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.
71% plus of all apprehended cars stolen in 2005 in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and California were stolen by Illegal aliens or transport coyotes.
47% of cited/stopped drivers in California have no license, no insurance, and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 47%, 92% are illegal aliens.
63% of cited/stopped drivers in Arizona have no license, no insurance, and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 63%, 97% are illegal aliens
66% of cited/stopped drivers in New Mexico have no license, no insurance, and no registration for the vehicle. Of that 66% 98% are illegal aliens.
380,000 plus anchor babies were born in the US to illegal alien parents in just one year, making 380,000 babies automatically US citizens (which is UN-Constitutional; illegal).
97.2% of all costs incurred from those illegal births were paid by the American taxpayers.

Anti-Christian Drumbeat Loud Before Egypt Attack

That's the headline from this recent Associated Press article. Worth reading. I also gleaned the following from an online article:

In May 2010, The Wall Street Journal reported increasing "waves of mob assaults" by Muslims against Copts, forcing many Christians to flee their homes. Despite frantic calls for help, the police typically arrived after the violence was over. The police also coerced the Copts to accept "reconciliation" with their attackers to avoid prosecuting them, with no Muslims convicted for any of the attacks. In Marsa Matrouh, a mob of 3,000 Muslims attacked the city's Coptic population, with 400 Copts having to barricade themselves in their church while the mob destroyed 18 homes, 23 shops and 16 cars.

I thought one poster to that AP website article had an interesting idea. "For every Christian a Muslim kills, lets draw a cartoon of Muhammad!"
