Did Early Global Warming Divert A New Glacial Age?

Science Daily is a quack site so it's full of weird news.

Damn. Take a picture of ONE guy dangling pantsless from a chairlift, and they fire you. What's the world coming to?

A world where you can't take a picture of a man dangerously suspended from a ski lift sans pants?

I hope the photographers learns something that a lot of people don't know: even what you do off-duty can get you fired from your job, particularly if its still at the location you work at.  ... Or at least do it in such a way as to never be caught.

The actual problem was that of exclusivity of services, I believe.  He took a picture on the resort and sold it to someone else.

So a bar could fire their bouncer if he punches a dude out at another bar?

Or am I just thinking about Super-villains?

It's a classic love story.  Boy meets girl.  Boy falls in love with girl.  Boy marries girl.  Boy gives girl his kidney to save her life.  Boy and girl have falling out.  Boy asks for his goddamn kidney back as part of the divorce settlement.

Well, fair is fair. She should make getting her figure back from having his 3 kids part of the settlement then. I'm sure all the plastic surgery it would take to return her body to pre-childbearing status would equal the cost of the kidney.

Except of course for the fact that having one less kidney will shorten your life, whereas having a fat ass from pregnancy is self-reversable and non-life-threatening. :)

The guy's a doctor and yet he doesn't know about the National Organ Transplant Act of 1984?  Sorry sir, but an organ is non-refundable.

EDIT:  The site is one of those "you have to sign in to browse... and you have to be a doctor" kind of sites.  Here is the google search for the lazy: http://www.google.com/search?q=laws+against+buying+and+selling+organs&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

Remember, donors... a kidney is for life, not just for Christmas. ;)

Same work for hearts?  I don't like the heart I got for my birthday, and I was hoping I could return it for a more stylish model.

Scientists hear mystery boom from space

So what is it?  I think it's an alien race firing a laser beam at earth, finally putting us out of our misery  ;D.
