It may not have necessarily been the V-2 rocket:
This is a replica of the Horten 229 fighter-bomber which exemplified the same stealth technology used by today’s B-2 Spirit bomber, built by Northrop Grumman using their own time and funding. As it turns out, the aircraft was cancelled before the end of World War II. Good thing too.

Just coming across the wire now…5-4 in favor of the Firefighters in Ricci v. DeStefano. Of course this is right down ideological lines; it’s pretty obvious who voted what…and I’ll bet the five Justices were probably thinking “You gotta be kidding!”.
This will also put Judge Sonia Sotomayor on the hot seat, because it was her ruling which was struck down. Let’s see…that makes it 4 of 6 rulings which have gone to the Supreme Court, and have been overturned. She’s gonna get grilled Big Time during her hearings.
I don’t give a s**t what the el cubos think and have stated elsewhere…this judge is RACIST.

Let’s see…what’s wrong with this scenario?
The left-wing President of Honduras, Jose Manuel Zelaya Rosales, schedules a referendum for TODAY which changes his country’s Constitution to allow him to run for another term. Their Supreme Court rules it Unconstitutional; the President’s own party is against it, and so are the Honduran People, not to mention the legislature, who ultimately ousts him with assistance from the military. Zelaya is taken to Costa Rica, where he has set up his shadow government.
And what statement does Президент Оба́ма issue about this situation?
“I call on all political and social actors in Honduras to respect democratic norms, the rule of law and the tenets of the Inter-American Democratic Charter. Any existing tensions and disputes must be resolved peacefully through dialogue free from any outside interference.”
Um…‘scuse me, Господин Президент, the Honduran People have already respected their democratic norms; it’s Zelaya who was thwarting it.
And look who else is about to spring into action: why it’s the President of the UN General Assembly, Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann, who’s also a DFC Sandinista. He calls the military action “criminal”; why is it that the el cubos of the world, not to mention the Islamofascists, insist that everything done by the book is “criminal”? Yes yes, I know I’m being rhetorical here.
In any case…BULLY for Honduras!
Many kudos to this brave Iranian woman who stands directly in front of Mr. Dinner Jacket’s SUV. I have to wonder if certain words (and not necessarily naughty words, either) were spoken between the two. In any case, this could have as much significance as the Tank Guy did twenty years ago in Tiananmen Square.
Now if you click on the thumbnail, you’ll see the real picture (which is located here). Of course, there are also brave Photoshoppers who have already altered the photo to something even more appropriate. For that, you can go here.

An amazing song from a Soviet-born American singer: Regina Spektor:

Go on, you know the rest: “The Two-Fisted Burger at Burger King!” They forgot to add that it also takes one mouth. And this ain’t no Whopper that’s for sure. It’s something…different.
Whose bright idea was this? He or she should be SHOT and then invited to leave Burger King. As it turns out, this isn’t the first time such a setting has been used to advertise fast food.
Kinda makes the food suck, doesn’t it?

At 1230 hours Pacific Time, Michael Jackson suffered a cardiac arrest. By 1426, he was dead.
This is unreal. The guy was brilliant, music-wise. Otherwise, he was, shall we say, an eccentric individual, one who barely escaped the Long Arm of The Law by being found Not Guilty of child molestation charges back in 1993 and again in 2004.
So, who gets his children? And who gets his music library (which, If I recall, may still include the entire Lennon-McCartney collection)? Who knows?
Actually, this occurred about three and one-half hours ago. It was really nice to sleep in. Here’s what’s on the wires:
FARRAH FAWCETT DIES: Man, she was a babe! I remember having that famous poster hanging up in my room during high school.
GOOD ENOUGH FOR THEE, BUT NOT FOR ME: Президент Оба́ма disavows his own Оба́маcare program which he wants to impose on the rest of us. Should we be surprised?
STEP DOWN, GOV. SANFORD: I guess I had hoped that you would rise above the riff-raff politicians. Alas, I am disappointed.
Dang…I never thought I’d see a picture of this ever again:
Yes, I was in this auto (and the only one which possessed a manual transmission) which got smashed pretty badly twenty-six years ago. Some lady in a big-a** Chevy Impala turned right in front of me when I was going through an intersection. I swerved to avoid her, to no avail, and this was the result: two broken ribs and a broken shoulder blade.
And who gave this photo to me? Why the Lady E of course. She kept the newspaper clipping all these years. I am so grateful she remembers stuff even like this.

Bet you didn’t think there was such a thing, did you? Well it turns out that there was! The East German government had a challenge on their hands: satisfying the demands of its citizens for consumer goods (which they were used to getting while in Nazi Germany), while at the same time promoting Socialist values and self-reliance.
Check out this very popular camera in the DDR!
I wonder what format it used….
Anyhow, as you go further into the photo gallery, you’ll be amazed at all these products sold behind the Iron Curtain. Hey RDM! You should see this too…this stuff would have fit perfectly in the BSG milieu of post-Cylon War Colonial society!
Now here’s a unique usage for the iPod Touch:
I wonder if it’s hardened against, say, EMP….

Now isn’t this such a nice-looking bear!
Why I’ll bet you’re wondering who made this nice stuffed animal to honor الرئيس أوباما?

I had no idea they CAIR’d so much to make them out of bears instead of those hounds from Hell!
One of the methods I utilize to relieve the stressful situations in my life (and believe me, there are more than a handful right now!) is to play games and take out whatever frustrations I have out on said game. Until I cen get a better Official System, I’ve found one to my liking.
It’s called Mafia Wars and you play the Don of your own family, encountering other Mafiosi, Crooked Cops, Yakuza, Tong, the Russian Mob, and eventutally the (Post-Castro? Won’t know that until The Godfather authorizes me to travel there) Cubans!. It’s addicting, to say the least.

Some interesting stuff happened today….
IF YOU CAN FIND A BETTER CAR, BUY IT: Lee Iacocca’s words to the American Public ring just as true today as they did 30 years ago. And this will benefit…FORD.
US OPEN FANS HECKLE TIGER WOO: Even he has bad days. And no, Peoples Hernandez wasn’t there. He dead.
SHOULD WE FEEL SORRY FOR THIS PERSON? If he had kept his mouth shut if they don’t agree with him, perhaps he wouldn’t have gotten his a** kicked. Still, the guy who did it turned himself in, and he’ll probably get a slap on the wrist.
