A case of mild autism has made him extremely sensitive to noise. Vincelette, who lives in a spaceship-style house, thinks music, especially top 40, rap and rock ‘n’ roll, ‘sounds the same way feces smells.’
Vincelette used his genius-level IQ and parts of household microwave ovens to develop a makeshift device that uses electromagnetic waves to temporarily jam the circuitry of his neighbors’ stereos.
Barney Vincelette purchased his unusual house from a catalog and erected it on his Houston lot. While he revels in its ‘geometric simplicity,’ his wife, Carol, says it doesn’t have enough space.”
You have to hand it to the Japanese, they know violence sells and they market it like no other country can.
But this has to be the dumbest sport in history, two fat guys pounding each other with neon-rods until they?
Ron Ormond is the Ed Wood of bad religious film-making and If Footmen Tire You, What Will Horses Do? is his magnum opus. It’s like a Jack Chick tract come to life!
Here’s an (edited) review found on the Greylodge G-Pod website:
If Jesus Christ came back to Earth and saw the 1971 Baptist propaganda film If Footmen Tire You, What Will Horses Do? he would convert to Buddhism. This astonishing little movie hits a rare trifecta of foaming-mouth lunacy: barking dogma, Cold War paranoia and Dixie-fried exploitation film-making at its unintentionally funniest.
If Footmen Tire You, What Will Horses Do? is the unlikely collaboration of two of the least inspiring men of their respective trades: the Rev. Estus W. Pirkle, a Mississippi preacher who had a minor following thanks to mail order sales of audiotaped sermons, and Alan Ormond, a Grade Z filmmaker who gave the world such nonsense as The Monster and the Stripper and The Girl from Tobacco Road. Ormond came to Rev. Pirkle?
Ah religion, that organized system of ignorance… you never fail to bring the funny:
A ruling by U.S. District Judge Casey Rodgers states that the nine properties that make up Dinosaur Adventure Land as well as two bank accounts associated with the park will be used to satisfy $430,400 owed to the federal government.
Kent Hovind, who founded the park and a ministry, Creation Science Evangelism, is serving 10 years in federal prison for failing to pay the Internal Revenue Service more than $470,000 in employee taxes.
He was found guilty in November 2006 on 58 counts, including failure to pay employee taxes and making threats against investigators.
The conviction culminated 17 years of Hovind sparring with the IRS. Saying he was employed by God and his ministers were not subject to payroll taxes, he claimed no income or property.
The president she once pointed a gun at has been dead for nearly three years, and her longtime idol and leader, Charles Manson, remains in prison.
However, Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme is about to get her first taste of real freedom in more than three decades.
According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Fromme, now 60, is set to be released on parole August 16.
Fromme is housed at the Federal Medical Center at Carswell, Texas.
Maybe we should add a new “WTF?” category:
NASA started to beam the song towards the North Star, 431 light years from Earth at midnight GMT on Monday, drawing congratulations from former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney and John Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, who mused that it marked “the beginning of the new age in which we will communicate with billions of planets across the universe.”
But today’s New Scientist asks whether such signals could expose us to the risk of attack from mean spirited aliens.
Thank you Mister Mark Jordan of London, England!
We are living in Idiocracy. It’s not coming, it’s here now…
The Christian right is making a fresh push to force religion onto the school curriculum in Texas with the state’s education board about to consider recommendations that children be taught that there would be no United States if it had not been for God.
Members of a panel of experts appointed by the board to revise the state’s history curriculum, who include a Christian fundamentalist preacher who says he is fighting a war for America’s moral soul, want lessons to emphasise the part played by Christianity in the founding of the US and that religion is a civic virtue.
Opponents have decried the move as an attempt to insert religious teachings in to the classroom by stealth, similar to the Christian right’s partially successful attempt to limit the teaching of evolution in biology lessons in Texas.
