I have long pooh-poohed the idea that there are primal cerebral and evolutionary reasons for men needing to hunt and gather (women) and women needing to keep the home-fires burning and breed (male offspring, if they knew what was good for them), because humans have simply evolved beyond that. Or at least most women have. We don’t need men to care for us (although a little help would be appreciated, frankly!) and more and more women (in the western world, anyway) are choosing to be single mothers. That these smug women then complain about how hard being a single mother/social martyr is makes me furious, but that is a topic for another diatribe.

I have a dream: there will come a time when the men will be men and the women will once again be grateful. A time when the working of heavy machinery and backwashing the pool will be the sole domain of men. Real men. Men with just a hint of dirt under their nails. Men who scoff at quiche, both its making and eating. Men who wouldn’t be caught dead reading a column that uses the term pooh-poohed. (KATY CHANCE. Published: 2012/02/02)

Police: School bus dispatcher was bank robbery getaway driver |
Reynolds-Bell has worked for Orange County public schools for nearly 24 years. Now, the alleged bank robber is suspended with pay, which means she gets $17.20 per hour.
Police said Reynolds-Bell, a longtime school bus dispatcher, was also a getaway driver for her husband.
"I'm not guilty. And that's all I have to say, according to my lawyer," said Reynolds-Bell. ( ORLANDO, Fla. Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2012 HERE) ... "
Some questions come to mind. How is it that this bus dispatcher is not guilty of helping to rob a bank? If you drop off a bank robber, and then pick them up as they leave the bank with stolen property, isn't that traditionally part of this type drama?

For sure, it seems very unlikely that a story like this could actually happen in the 21st century ... haven't the robbers seen any bank robbery movies, TV shows, or more recently, TARP?

Mash me up and pile on, I am speechless. Maybe I need to re-read, and find more detail. Did this couple wake up one day and just decide to go out and "rob a bank?" Or did it happen as the suspect getaway driver says, "she is not guilty." She claims she did not find out about her husband's robbing the bank until much later.

When Van Gogh, the Dutch painter, cut off his ear and gave it to his girlfriend, and then did a self-portrait of his bandaged head ... his act had a certain build up. Over time Van Gogh became mentally disturbed enough to play out the deed of self-mutilation.

Don't the robbers realize their troubles are self-inflicted?

But what build up led this couple to rob a bank, and fail so deservedly at it? There is mention by some neighbors that the couple had been arguing over money. Nonetheless, they have certainly given the grand old profession of bank robbery a real bad name. They are a stain on a much revered literary plot, robbing the bank.

Stick 'em up!

[A story by Pamela Norman]  ... "Just read this in another group and just couldn't resist......"

The Smiths were unable to conceive children and decided to use a surrogate father to start their family. On the day the proxy father was to arrive, Mr. Smith kissed his wife goodbye and said, 'Well, I'm off now. The man should be here soon.'

Half an hour later, just by chance, a door-to-door baby photographer happened to ring the doorbell, hoping to make a sale. 'Good morning, Ma'am', he said, 'I've come to...'

'Oh, no need to explain,' Mrs.. Smith cut in, embarrassed, 'I've been expecting you.'

'Have you really?' said the photographer. 'Well, that's good. Did you know babies are my specialty?'

'Well that's what my husband and I had hoped. Please come in and have a seat !.

After a moment she asked, blushing, 'Well, where do we start?'

'Leave everything to me.. I usually try two in the bathtub, one on the couch, and perhaps a couple on the bed. And sometimes the living room floor is fun. You can really spread out there.'

'Bathtub, living room floor? No wonder it didn't work out for Harry and me!'

'Well, Ma'am, none of us can guarantee a good one every time. But if we try several different positions and I shoot from six or seven angles, I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results.'

'My, that's a lot!', gasped Mrs. Smith.

'Ma'am, in my line of work a man has to take his time. I'd love to be In and out in five minutes, but I'm sure you'd be disappointed with that.'

'Don't I know it,' said Mrs. Smith quietly.

The photographer opened his briefcase and pulled out a portfolio of his baby pictures. 'This was done on the top of a bus,' he said.

'Oh, my God!' Mrs. Smith exclaimed, grasping at her throat.

'And these twins turned out exceptionally well - when you consider their mother was so difficult to work with..'

'She was difficult?' asked Mrs. Smith.

'Yes, I'm afraid so. I finally had to take her to the park to get the job done right. People were crowding around four and five deep to get a good look'

'Four and five deep?' said Mrs. Smith, her eyes wide with amazement.

'Yes', the photographer replied. 'And for more than three hours, too. The mother was constantly squealing and yelling - I could hardly concentrate, and when darkness approached I had to rush my shots. Finally, when the squirrels began nibbling on my equipment, I just had to pack it all in.'

Mrs. Smith leaned forward. 'Do you mean they actually chewed on your,'

'It's true, Ma'am, yes.. Well, if you're ready, I'll set-up my tripod and we can get to work right away..'

'Oh yes, Ma'am. I need to use a tripod to rest my Canon on. It's much too big to be held in the hand very long.'

Impact of new norovirus strain on outbreaks Norovirus caused the majority of acute gastroenteritis outbreaks in the United States from 2007 to 2010. However, a new strain that emerged in 2009 did not lead to more outbreaks.

You may hear norovirus illness called "food poisoning" or "stomach flu." It is true that food poisoning can be caused by noroviruses. But, other germs and chemicals can also cause food poisoning. Norovirus illness is not related to the flu (influenza), which is a respiratory illness caused by influenza virus.

Symptoms of norovirus infection usually include diarrhea, throwing up, nausea, and stomach cramping.

Other, less common symptoms may include low-grade fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, and general sense of fatigue.

The exact cause of Alzheimer's remains unknown, but one of the leading theories involves the formation of clumps of a protein called beta-amyloid. These damage and kill brain cells, eventually resulting in memory problems and the inability to think clearly."

With jib and full sail cast
As have sturdy fellows past.

Talking as frapped his rope

Leaning with gaunt arm bare
Upon bronze gunwale, pushing aside thick hair,
Squinting ignobly in bright sun-glare
With meaty fingers tugs at pipe there
Aboard chapped lips points to east horizon
Of inland mare, fashions scowl for his next quip
As great barrier of clouds form at fast clip

Wriggling fingers while digging for a match
To strike against all that scratch
Of a standard jaw, put he then pipe to pucker,
Match to pipe bowl, sucked he flame to tobacco;

Returning to his task murmuring just audible
Pipe clenched tightly in teeth and jaw
Spatted he to indicate his final card
Whispering as puckers he a humid draw:

'... Wha' character does she reflect when tide low
'... How can tide pool stand for long
'... in ancient thirsty sand?'

Calm smile now on his face in half shadow ...

'... To where my life depart; to live a mariner
'... For what did I impart these hands?'

I remember sail cloth masted, trimmed taut
To gather wind for friends at steady knot
A chance to depart on lake large as a sea
And to cross horizon in time eternity
With promise for life, love and for loss.

Today's Non-syndicated FUNNIES

Laurie Plumridge ::
Mahatma Ghandi was a vegetarian. His meager diet caused him to become very thin and weak with terrible breath. And his constant wearing of sandals took a toll on his feet with bad calluses and such. That made him a...wait for it... super calloused, fragile mystic, hexed by halitosis!

Susan Drangstveit :: The Sesame Street bus had a new driver and he asked the kids to introduce themselves as they got on. The first two girls were really huge and both of them were named Patty. The next student said "Hi. I'm Ross and I'm special." The last kid said, "I'm Lester Peas." He promptlly sat down and began picking at his feet. Dispatch called and asked the driver how it was going. His reply? I've got two all beef Pattys, Special Ross, Lester Peas picking bunions on the Sesame Street bus.

John Evans :: An African chief was feeling very sick, so he summoned the witch doctor to his hut. After a brief examination, the medicine man cut off a thong of antelope hide from his belt and gave it to the chief, instructing him to bite off, chew, and swallow one inch of leather every day. After one month, the witch doctor returned, and asked how the chief was feeling. The chief answered, "The thong is ended, but the malady lingers on."

A robber bursts into the bank and yells "Give me the money!" A brave customer runs over and pulls his mask off. "You can't rob the bank now. I've seen your face!" The robber thinks about it for a moment and then shoots him. "Anyone else see my face?" he asked menacingly. After a few moments silence, a man shouts up "I think my wife had a look!"

MooPig's Report from the Middle: "Can You Believe this S**t?"

FBI had Investigated Steve Jobs for Volunteering to Help, Was Steve a Bad Apple???
Snipped by Pat Darnell | Feb 11, 2012 | Bryan TX

[Snippet HERE]

Government Snoops Blast Steve Jobs | John C. Dvorak | "Asking unnamed workers about the boss is useless gossip. Asking rivals about their rival is useless gossip. Putting the useless gossip in such a record is a misuse of the public trust, period."

'via Blog this'
So a 191-page report on a prospective member that already had a Top Secret clearance seems rather dubious. In fact, I'm surprised Jobs put up with the interviews and didn't throw out the FBI investigators when they began to grill him about his drug use, which he admitted to. I'd like to know why they didn't take his statement as a confession and throw him in jail on the spot.
So now, we get to see the late Steve Jobs' name dragged through the mud after cooperatively agreeing to do public service.
The lesson here: Don't volunteer for anything. (John C. Dvorak. February 10, 2012)

US Banks settle for $26B; consumer advocates wary

Retrieved by Pat Darnell | Feb 11, 2012 | Bryan TX
The $26 billion represents a significant settlement, but it clearly won't stagger the banks too much. Together, the four banks mentioned above took in a total profit of $47.6 billion in 2011. It's not as if the banks will be paying the settlements out of pure profits, either; they've all set aside a fair amount of capital to pay for their mistakes. Still it's telling that the banks will be paying just about half of their annual profits to walk away from the foreclosure mess. (2/9/2012 . Daniel Pereira. HERE)
[Picture by Pat Darnell]
Three questions come to mind:
  1. What is the Legal thing to do?
  2. What is the Right thing to do?
  3. Who gains from the decision?
" ... Kentucky attorney Jack Conway gestures as he announces Kentucky's inclusion in the Joint State-Federal Mortgage Servicing Settlement Thursday, Feb. 9, 2012 at his office in Frankfort, Ky. Conway said $58.8 million of the nation-wide $25 billion would come to Kentucky. / (AP /John Flavell) ... " Kentucky’s share in the settlement amounts to $58.8 million, while Indiana’s is $145 million. ..."
"... The deal with 49 of the 50 states requires five of the largest banks to reduce loans for about 1 million households at risk of foreclosure. The lenders also will send checks of $2,000 to about 750,000 Americans who were improperly foreclosed upon. The banks will have three years to fulfill the terms of the deal. ( Feb. 9, 2012. HERE) ... "
" ... He [Conway, DA, KY] called it “a first step in holding banks accountable for the mortgage foreclosure crisis” and stressed that the settlement doesn’t limit states’ rights to pursue further civil or criminal actions against banks. It also does not limit homeowners’ ability to bring legal action against banks, he said. ... "
The attorneys general set up a website — — and encouraged homeowners to wait to hear from their banks over the next nine months or to call the banks and ask about their eligibility. It will take about three years for the settlement agreement to be fulfilled.

Moopig's Conclusion
" ... The $26 billion settlement helps. But it's a long way from healing the grievous wounds left by the crisis and the fraud. ... "
1. The banks committed fraud when they let their paperwork overwhelm them. In recent past, Banks started signing off on foreclosures that were illegal. How to make that legal? Every foreclosure must be reviewed. This is a nightmare for the property owners and mortgage companies and the litigation is mind boggling. [We would be better off if some of these lenders bellied up anyway.]
2. Cancel every foreclosure that was imposed from the era discussed, that seems the most righteous thing to do. Go back and declare moratoriums on all those trumped foreclosures. That would put a cost of $800 billion on the deal, more in line with the crimes committed.
3. State Governments will prosper from this lawsuit as millions pour into their coffers. And that is money for the local politicians.  Confusion on who will receive the paltry $2k per damaged mortgagee, that is proposed, will make a few local yokels richer.

MooPig's Report from Europe :: "Snow"

Snow in Rome and South to Puglia, Foggia

An extraordinary snowfall which had not occurred since 1985 hit Rome on Feb.3.
The severe cold weather currently gripping Europe has now spread to Italy. Freezing temperatures affecting the North of the peninsula began moving south on Monday, with snow now falling in Central Italy and the island of Sardinia too.

Authorities say that snow could fall on the nation's capital by Friday, while Florence and

Feb 5, 2012 | EXCERPT | " ... Emilia Romagna, are predicted to see snow flurries by Tuesday afternoon.

Trains and planes in Turin and Milan were delayed or cancelled, 100 flights were grounded at Bologna's Guglielmo Marconi airport, and heavy snowfall that caused disruption on the highways in Piedmont, Lombardy, Emilia Romagna, central Tuscany and Umbria has the weather reached sub-zero temperatures.

Transportation authorities are requiring travellers to carry snow chains on board if their vehicles are not equipped with snow tires. This inclement weather has already caused school shut-downs and stopped lorries from crossing the France-Italy boarders.

On the Alps, temperatures dipped to -21 Celsius degrees on the Mount Blanc, -27 on Mount Rosa and -12 in the ski resort town of Cortina. Many Italian Serie A and B soccer matches are at risk and might be cancelled.


Indonesia 'rail surfers' face 'goop' brooms - CBC News

Indonesia 'rail surfers' face 'goop' brooms - CBC News: "Indonesia has come up with another bizarre plan to keep commuters from riding on the roofs of trains: Swat them with brooms drenched in putrid goop.

"For anyone who is still up there, it'll be like a whip," said Ahmad Sujadi, of the state-run railway, PT Kereta Api Indonesia."

'via Blog this'
Thrillseeking ‘train surfers’ in Indonesia will be brought down to earth with a bump as part of a new scheme to crack down on fare dodgers.

Rail bosses in Indonesia hope they’re on the right track to get rid of pesky roof-riders – by installing grapefruit-sized concrete balls to sweep the tops of carriages.

They hope to derail hundreds of passengers who dice with death by clambering on top of trains, either to dodge the fares or escape the crush inside.

A spokesman for the state-owned railway company, PT Kereta Api, said: ‘We’ve tried just about everything, even putting rolls of barbed wire on the roof, but nothing seems to work. Maybe this will do it.’

The first set of the silver-painted balls was installed near a station just outside Jakarta.

But the effect was rather lost when it emerged bungling officials had made the chains too short, leaving a gap of about 40cm (16in) between the balls and passing trains.
