And to think she’s the good one in the family.  Gee, I wonder why the publisher of her mother’s book on parenting was delayed indefinitely.  On a serious note, there are three children who are in danger of being victims of the Spears’s train wreck. Hopefully Britney can get her life on track and her sister can look to her sister as what NOT to do as a mother.

Today’s Forecast- Clear and the Occasional Downpour of Whale Blubber September 27, 2007

This story is about 35 years old, though I just heard about it.  The Oregon Highway Department officials involved with this incident STILL refuse to talk about it.  It wasn’t their most stellar moment.  No whales were hurt in the filming of this video. it was already dead. However a car was severely damaged.  Nor were any people hurt, although I am sure a lot of dry cleaners were shocked the next day.  The sounds you hear after the explosion are indeed whale bits raining down on the bystanders.

In a horrible case of life imitating a bad episode of Jerry Springer, the state of Arkansas has mistakenly lowered the age that people can marry to, well, now there is no minimum age.  Infants can now get married.  Before this law went into effect the age of consent was 16 for women and 17 for men.  They had wanted to make it 18 for everyone.  But the bill had an exception in case of pregnancy. If there was a pregnancy involved and one or both participants under 18, then they could marry with parental consent.

However due to a typo the new law read: “In order for a person who is younger than eighteen (18) years of age and who is not pregnant to obtain a marriage license, the person must provide the county clerk with evidence of parental consent to the marriage.”

In other words, if the parents say yes, then kids can get married at any age. I’m not sure but I believe due to this wording,  makes marriage in case of pregnancy IS prohibited.  At least while the pregnancy lasts.

Amazing the power of one three letter word.  Even more depressing,  two houses of a state legislature along with the governor’s office bothered to read the law they were passing.  Makes you wonder what else is has been made legal, or illegal, and no one yet  figured it out.

In order to fix this, another law has to be passed.  This will require a special session of the Arkansas legislature since it is now in recess and won’t meet again until 2009.  Frankly I think the people of Arkansas would be better served if these turkeys never would have convened in the first place.

Well if they are using radar to control the Amish and their speeding buggies, then what I saw yesterday makes more sense.   I was at a local fast food restaurant and I saw a van pull-up with the name Renegade painted across the front of the van. After the van parked, about 10 Amish got out.  I found it amusing that a van full of law-abiding, traditionalist, pacifist Amish  were happily riding in a van named Renegade.  I was wondering what made these Amish renegades.  Maybe they used buttons and zippers, or perhaps they drove around listening to the farm reports on the van’s radio.

After all if they are speeding around in their buggies, Lord knows what other type of mischief they are up to.

The other day the subject of phobias came up. If your phobia is severe enough, you can get disability for it. The discussion arose because someone we know seemingly develops phobias for no apparent reason then gets over them to be replaced by another. I did a little research, partly to be prepared with the next phobic problem and to see if maybe there is one we can get disability for. There are a LOT of phobias out there. Here are but a few.

Allodoxaphobia- Fear of opinions. I know a lot of people like this
Androphobia or Arrhenphobia- Fear of men.
Atomosophobia- Fear of atomic explosions. this one seems sensible
Autodysomophobia- Fear of one that has a vile odor.
Automatonophobia- Fear of ventriloquist’s dummies
Barophobia- Fear of gravity. I suppose these people prefer to fly off into space
Bromidrosiphobia or Bromidrophobia- Fear of body smells.
Coitophobia- Fear of coitus.
Coprastasophobia- Fear of constipation.
Consecotaleophobia- Fear of chopsticks.
Coulrophobia- Fear of clowns.
Defecaloesiophobia- Fear of painful bowels movements. seems reasonable
Eurotophobia- Fear of female genitalia.
Geniophobia- Fear of chins. I bet they dont watch Jay Leno
Genophobia- Fear of sex. I bet they DO watch Jay Leno…a lot
Genuphobia- Fear of knees. Is genugenohobia fear of sex on your knees?
Gynephobia or Gynophobia- Fear of women. Gynogenogenuphobia fear of sex on knees with women ??
Helminthophobia- Fear of being infested with worms. again seems reasonable
Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia- Fear of the number 666. This be a good scrabble word
Kolpophobia- Fear of genitals, particularly female.
Logizomechanophobia- Fear of computers. I bet they won’t be reading this
Luiphobia- Fear of lues, syphillis.
Medomalacuphobia- Fear of losing an erection.
Medorthophobia- Fear of an erect penis.
Menophobia- Fear of menstruation.
Nucleomituphobia- Fear of nuclear weapons. again seems reasonable
Oneirogmophobia- Fear of wet dreams.
Paraskavedekatriaphobia- Fear of Friday the 13th.
Parthenophobia- Fear of virgins or young girls.
Phallophobia- Fear of a penis, esp erect.
Proctophobia- Fear of rectums
Rhypophobia- Fear of defecation

In April, Donald Duncan Jr., 34, was convicted of invasion of privacy in Carlisle, Pa., after his wife discovered a hidden-camera video of two girls who were disrobing in a bedroom in the couple’s house. Duncan said he had set up the camera because he suspected there were ghosts in the house and wanted proof. [Patriot-News (Harrisburg), 4-12-07]

Apparently the wife was okay with two young women disrobing in the house.

This honor has to go to Yves Leterme. M. Leterme, the Belgian Prime Minister-to-be, was asked recently to sing a few bars of the Belgian National Anthem. He complied with a rendition of the Marseilles, the French National Anthem. M. Leterme’s grasp of his country’s history is apparently also as strong as his knowledge of the national anthem.

When asked why July 21 is celebrated as Belgium’s independence day, he responded that it was the day the adopted their constitution. The correct answer is that is the day that the first Belgian King accepted the throne.

Finally he demonstrated his skills at national unity by making the following comment about the French speakers, who make up 40 % of Belgium, on their reluctance to learn Dutch. “Initially, the idea was that many French speakers would adjust to the new linguistic reality. But apparently the French speakers are intellectually not capable of learning Dutch.”

Its always a good thing for ones political career to call 40% of the electorate morons.

At least we in America can take pride in knowing that our President isn’t the dumbest leader out there.

Yes, another blog on the ever-changing climate. I’m not going to concentrate on who is right and whose science is valid. Rather my major concern is that the politicians aren’t doing anything other than making political hay, though this probably indicates that both sides realize their arguments are based on not-so-certain conclusions facts.

It seems certain that, at least in the short term, the climate is getting warmer. This will cause changes, if only in the short run, mainly the raising sea levels and changing weather patterns. Instead of working on plans to mitigate the inundation of major cities or where we will put populations of displaced people our illustrious political leaders would rather argue who or what is at fault and/or how we can reduce our carbon footprint.

No, they rather put on global rock concerts, tell us to use one sheet of toilet paper and have us buy carbon credits. They should be thinking of ways to protect cities like New York and Miami. Or where to put the people who now live on the coast when their homes are gone. Or how we will get water when droughts become more common. Let alone talk to other world leaders of what to do when entire countries like, Bangladesh virtually disappear.
At least the polar bears have a plan.
