Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

I was addicted to the hokey pokey, but I turned myself around! ("If it is true that humans share 44% of their DNA with bananas, then how, when, and why did it become so much more difficult to drive a stick-shift? Answer me that , eh!")

Saturday Morning Confusion!

Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries issued an official statement yesterday in light of the recent backlash surrounding comments he made back in 2006 about his brand’s target audience — but the apology isn’t getting much love from angry customers.
Jeffries goes on to call the brand an “aspirational” one that “targets its marketing at a particular segment of customers.”
“We are completely opposed to any discrimination, bullying, derogatory characterizations or other anti-social behavior based on race, gender, body type or other individual characteristics,” he concluded.
imagestujtuyEarlier this week, quotes from a 2006 Salon interview revealed that Jeffries had once admitted that he only wanted the “cool and popular kids” to shop at his stores.
“We go after the cool kids,” he was quoted as saying, in reference to his company’s target demographic. “A lot of people don’t belong, and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely.”
Listen boys and girls, if this was any other time except this bullshit P.C. era his comments would have made a perfect marketing campaign.
Not only do ya get all the cool kids, but all the kids that want to be cool as well.
Score another point for the far left!

Dear Readers:

You can call me a sexist pig, a dirty old man, or anything else you want, but I’m telling ya straight, this was a doctors idea, and I’m just reporting it!
Doctor prescribes two blowjobs a week to help woman with her gag reflex!
A surgeon has been reprimanded by a medical board for suggesting a patient try oral sex to improve her gag reflex.
The unnamed patient was hesitant to undergo an upper-gastrointestinal endoscopy. The procedure would require a scope going from someone’s mouth into their intestinal tract. She told  Dr. J. Peter Zegarra that she “even gags at the dentist” and didn’t want the procedure.
That’s when the doctor suggested in front of her husband, “She should be practicing twice a week on her husband by giving him (oral sex) to address her gagging reflex.” “This constituted unprofessional conduct, and so this is a message that this probably wasn’t appropriate,” said Cassandra Hockenson, of the Medical Board. “A more appropriate response should have come with regards to dealing with her gag reflex issues.”

Even if it was a playful suggestion, the medical board says that’s no defense ………………, but it does prove that the board has no sense of humour!

Went to see Star Trek as soon as it opened yesterday.
It’s a really good film and The Mrs. Herself and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but give me a break kids ……………………..!
Reviews we read today talk about it’s social relevance, morality in the far future, the use of metaphor in developing a concept and all sorts of other bullshit, when it’s just a damn good movie!
After all people, this is ‘Star Wars’ we are talking about, not ‘Gone with the wind’ or ‘Citizen Kane!’

Iowa Farms Can’t Seem to Keep Their Pig Shit from Exploding

drunk3Pig farming is tough, foul-smelling, and dirty work. Turns out, that’s the good part of it. See, since 2009 the American hog farming industry has been struck with an explosive pork poop problem—in that the decomposing porcine waste will go boom under the right conditions.
Since the phenomenon was first described four years ago, a half dozen such explosions have occurred throughout Iowa and Minnesota, stumping scientists as to the cause. The largest explosion killed all 1,500 hogs at the site and seriously burned a farm hand. Another lifted a barn “a couple of feet off the ground,” according to University of Minnesota researcher David Schmidt.
Methane is a normal byproduct of pig, cow, and sheep waste and, in well-ventilated areas poses no combustion threat so long as it doesn’t exceed a concentration of 20 percent. But for some as-of-yet uncovered reason, the shit pits utilized in industrial hog farming operations—subterranean holes located under the pens and covered by slotted planks that allow poo to fall through, collect, and decompose—have begun developing a thick matte covering of bacterial foam, the consistency of whipped egg whites.
This layer of foam can grow to four feet thick, covering a highly-volatile layer of 60-70 percent concentrate methane gas beneath it. If the foam is agitated, it suddenly releases the combustible gas and, in the presence of an energy source—a heater or lit cigarette—the gas will ignite with terrible results. Researchers suspect it may be bacterial based as the phenomenon grows quickly once established and could be instigated due to dietary or environmental changes. But until then, you’re going to want to refrain from smoking in the hog barn. [Mother Jones, Iowa Pork via TreeHugger]

We saw this headline today!
A Saudi woman has made history by reaching the summit of the world’s highest mountain.

This proves once again that there are no limits a woman in Saudi Arabia will go to in order to get away from that misogynistic,  repressive society!

AND GET A LOAD OF THIS:
Men who are physically strong are more likely to take a right wing political stance, while weaker men are inclined to support the welfare state, according to a new study.
Researchers discovered political motivations may have evolutionary links to physical strength.
Men’s upper-body strength predicts their political opinions on economic redistribution, according to the research.
(Or not!)
