The world did not end On may 21st as Harold Camping predicted. Now the dude has refigured his numbers and claims the rapture will be October 21st. Harold spends more time recalculating than my GPS.
A Toronto couple has decided to keep the gender of their child a secret. The kid, named Storm is 5 or 6 months I think and the couple says they are not telling anyone the gender because they don't wanna label their child. Sorry folks but you not revealing the facts does not change the reality that the kid either has a penis or it doesn't. Somebody should teach them the phrase ... It is what it is.
Conspiracy theories about President Obama abound here in my ultra-conservative area of Texas, but two people this week have tried to sell me on the idea Obama is actively trying to piss off all of America to instigate an all out revolt like we've seen in Northern Africa and the Middle East as of late. Both individuals limits their news to Fox and right wind radio so they assume everyone in America is pissed off. My response to their claim? There are no more pissed off people now than there was when Bush was in office, only now it's the other half that are angry. My comment was met with blank stares.
And then there is this story ...
LAKE MARY, Fla., May 27 (UPI) -- A Florida man's lawsuit against Winn-Dixie Stores and a flower importer is seeking $15,000 in damages for a finger prick from a rose thorn.
Charles Imwalle, 41, of Lake Mary filed a lawsuit Monday against Winn-Dixie and Passion Growers LLC claiming he suffered pain, disfigurement, medical bills and lost wages after pricking his finger on a thorn from a rose he purchased from his local Winn-Dixie in February, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported Thursday.
The suit states the roses should have been stripped of their thorns and the stems should have been wrapped more carefully. The litigation also claims anti-bacterial solution was not used in the display buckets.
Imwalle lawyer Paul Thompson of Altamonte Springs declined to comment on the case.
Sam Ferrara, founder of Passion Growers, said Imwalle's cut became infected and he blamed the roses, but the company sterilizes all of its flowers.
"We've been doing this 20 years," Ferrara said. "We've never, never had anything like this where anyone has gotten an infection by a thorn prick."
There was a prick involved alright but I don't think it was attached to a rose.
