A cross-country fight had to make an unscheduled landing when a service dog pooped twice in the aisle, sickening passengers with the odor.
US Airways spokesman Andrew Christie said the May 28 US Airways flight from Los Angeles to Philadelphia had to make an unscheduled stop in Kansas City,
Christie called the episode a “rare and unfortunate situation.” The flight continued after the mess was cleaned up on the ground. The passenger and service dog were rebooked on another flight.
Jim Kutsch, president at The Seeing Eye guide dog school in Morristown, New Jersey, tells The Philadelphia Inquirer that such incidents are rare, but that dogs occasionally get sick on planes, too.
Folks, if you want to know just how screwed up religion can make you ………………………, listen to THIS!
Polio has been eradicated in every country except three, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria.
That’s right, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria. (Seems they have something against immunization shots.)
[Hey, just had a thought! Maybe that dumb blonde (Jenny McCarthy) with the autistic kid should become a Muslim................, she would fit right in!]
Well kids, the bear is either back, or some news departments are really slow in reporting stuff!

We here at the Naked News Department did a story about a bear relaxing on a hammock last weekend, and either the bear liked the hammock so much that he went back, or the national news wires are really slow to jump on a story ……….., because they were all reporting it TODAY!
Here’s something that will give you head a twirly swirly!
Female-named hurricanes kill more than male hurricanes because people don’t respect them, study finds!

People don’t take hurricanes as seriously if they have a feminine name and the consequences are deadly, finds a new groundbreaking study.
Female-named storms have historically killed more because people neither consider them as risky nor take the same precautions, the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences concludes.
Researchers at the University of Illinois and Arizona State University examined six decades of hurricane death rates according to gender, spanning 1950 and 2012. Of the 47 most damaging hurricanes, the female-named hurricanes produced an average of 45 deaths compared to 23 deaths in male-named storms, or almost double the number of fatalities. (The study excluded Katrina and Audrey, outlier storms that would skew the model).
The difference in death rates between genders was even more pronounced when comparing strongly masculine names versus strongly feminine ones.
74416-Royalty-Free-RF-Clipart-Illustration-Of-A-Pleasantly-Plump-Woman-Covering-Her-Nude-Body“[Our] model suggests that changing a severe hurricane’s name from Charley … to Eloise … could nearly triple its death toll,” the study says.

Sharon Shavitt, study co-author and professor of marketing at the University of Illinois, says the results imply an “implicit sexism”; that is, we make decisions about storms based on the gender of their name without even knowing it.
“When under the radar, that’s when it [the sexism] has the potential to influence our judgments,” Shavitt said.
Canada’s new prostitution laws look a lot like the old prostitution laws, survey shows: Which is rather appropriate since a lot of the new prostitutes look a lot like the old prostitutes anyway!
Folks I have always liked Brian Greene since I first saw him on Television.
Some theories in physics give rise to the idea of multiple universes, where nearly identical versions of the known universe exist. But if such a multiverse does exist, how would people know, and what would it mean for humanity?
There may be ways to find out if the known universe is one of many, said Brian Greene, a theoretical physicist and author at Columbia University in New York.
For example, in the multiverse suggested by string theory, a model that says the universe is composed of one-dimensional strings, the known universe might exist on a giant 3D membrane, Greene told Live Science.
In such a world, “if the universe is a loaf of bread, everything we know about takes place on one slice,” he said. Conceivably, debris from collisions that migrated off our slice into the wider cosmos might leave missing energy signatures, which a particle accelerator like the Large Hadron Collider at CERN might be able to detect, Greene said.
Some theories of inflation, the notion that the universe expanded rapidly in the first fractions of a second after the Big Bang, suggest another kind of multiverse. The Big Bang could be one of many big bangs, each giving rise to its own universe — a cosmic bubble in a sea of other bubbles.
In such a scenario, the known universe might collide with another one, which might leave an imprint on the cosmic microwave background, the radiation signature left over from the Big Bang, Greene said.
Greene stressed that all of these notions are highly speculative — “There’s reason to take the ideas seriously, but they are far from science fact,” he said.

Is free will dead?
170px-Brian_Greene_World_Science_FestivalBut if a multiverse does exist, it could have some wacky consequences. A world with an infinite number of universes would virtually ensure that conditions in one universe would repeat in another, Greene said. In other words, there would almost certainly be another version of you reading this article, written by another version of me.
In such a multiverse, you might decide to read the article in one universe and not read it in another. What would that mean for the notion of free will?
Perhaps it’s a moot point. “I think free will bit the dust long before multiverse theory,” Greene said.
That means free will is merely a human sensation, not actual control.
“When I move my teapot, that sensation is absolutely real,” Green said. “But that’s all it is. It’s a sensation.”
SO, what it all boils down to kids, is that it is up to each and every one of us to find this “other universe” or “multiverse!”
Look behind the couch, out in the garage, under the porch, and even in the attic ………, because the sooner we find this thing, the better off we will be!
(Maybe in another universe, there’s a Brian Greene that believes in free will.)
Well kids, just when ya think you’ve seen it all, something like THIS comes along!

SAN DIEGO (Reuters) – A 91-year-old woman ran a San Diego marathon on the weekend in record time for her age group, also becoming the oldest person ever to finish the race, despite lamenting she was unable to train properly because of cancer treatments.
Harriette Thompson, who ran her first marathon at age 76, set a U.S. record on Sunday for the fastest finish in her 90-and-over age group, finishing the 26.2-mile Rock’n’Roll San Diego Marathon in seven hours, seven minutes and 42 seconds, according to race organizer Dan Cruz.
“I’m elated,” the North Carolina resident told Reuters on Monday. “I’m pretty active but I didn’t really train for this one because I was treating for skin cancer.”
Thompson also became the second oldest person to complete a U.S. marathon and the oldest to finish the San Diego race.
The previous speed record in Thompson’s age group was set by Gladys Burrill in 2010, when the then-92-year-old finished the Honolulu marathon in nine hours and 53 minutes, according to Guinness World Records.
Thompson, who sat out the marathon last year because of health issues after finishing the race in 2012 in just over six hours, was one of about 25,000 runners on the 26.2-mile course, including her 55-year-old son, Brenny Thompson.
Thompson had radiation treatment for skin cancer on her legs in April, leaving her with sores that she covered with white tights and bandages, which hindered her training.
Thompson said she had no plans to stop running.
“I’ll be back next year if I’m still here at all,” she said. “But I’m definitely going to train next year. This is the only time I ever attempted to do the race without training, and I sure am feeling it today.”
