Buffalo x8

"Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo." is a grammatically validsentence in the English language, used as an example of how homonyms and homophones can be used to create complicated linguistic constructs. It has been discussed in literature since 1972 when the sentence was used by William J. Rapaport, an associate professor at the University at Buffalo.[1] It was posted to Linguist List by Rapaport in 1992.[2] It was also featured in Steven Pinker's 1994 book The Language Instinct.



The sentence is unpunctuated and uses three different readings of the word "buffalo". In order of their first use, these are a. the city of Buffalo, New York , which is used as a noun adjunct in the sentence and is followed by the animal;n. the nounbuffalo, an animal, in the plural (equivalent to "buffaloes" or "buffalos"), in order to avoid articles;v. the verb "buffalo" meaning to bully, confuse, deceive, or intimidate.Marking …

"Convicted forger A. Schiller was serving his time in Sing
Sing prison in the late 1800s when guards found him dead in
his cell. On his body they found seven regular straight pins
whose heads measured the typical 47/1000ths of an inch or
1.17 millimeters in diameter. Under 500 magnification it was
found that the tiny etchings seen on the heads of the pins
were the words to The Lord's Prayer, which is 65 words and
254 letters long. Of the seven pins, six were silver and one
was gold - the gold pin's prayer was flawless and a true
masterpiece. Schiller had spent the last 25 years of his life
creating the pins, using a tool too small to be seen by the
naked eye. It is estimated that it took 1,863 sepatate carving
strokes to make it. Schiller went blind because of his
artwork."

woah

Now make one big enough to sit in.

YouTube - little girls going hard on single ladies



Of course this is bound to cause controversy. They are little girls being sexy.. Right?

"they are too young for that, but they are good"

First there is a huge difference between something sexual, and dancing. That assumes that because a little girl dances like Beyonce, that it will make them have sex? It's like a gateway dance? Is that how it works?

Second, those girls probably have no sexual thoughts at all. They worked really hard on the dance moves, they dont even really have a concept of being "Sexy" I think it's very obvious that the people who think this is too sexual for girls of that age - have something wrong with THEM. If you're looking at young girls dancing and think sexual thoughts, or that there is something wrong with the type of dance and their age.. why?

What it really comes down to is that the people who are uncomfortable by this have a guilty conscious. Even if it's not their own,…

Things we didn't know before 2009

By Jeff Houck

Here's a list of stuff we culled from 2009 that may have come as a surprise:

1. Domestic pigs can quickly learn how mirrors work and use them to find food.

2. Grumpy people think more clearly because negative moods trigger more attentive, careful thinking.

3. High cholesterol levels in midlife are associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia later in life.

4. Analysis of Greenland ice samples shows Europe froze solid in less than 12 months 12,800 years ago, partly due to a slowdown of the Gulf Stream. Once triggered, the cold persisted for 1,300 years.

5. One mutated gene is the reason humans have language, and chimpanzees, our closest relative, do not.

6. Obesity in teenage girls may increase their risk of later developing multiple sclerosis.

7. A fossil skeleton of an Aardonyx celestae dinosaur discovered in South Africa appears to be the missing link between the earliest dinosaurs that walked on two legs and the large pl…

Titan vs. Titanic

Image
"Morgan Andrew Robertson is best known for the short novel Futility, first published in 1898. This story features an enormous Britishpassenger liner called the Titan, which, deemed to be unsinkable, carries insufficient lifeboats. On a voyage in the month of April, the Titan hits an iceberg and sinks in the North Atlantic with the loss of almost everyone on board. The similarities between the fictional sinking of the Titan and the real-life sinking of the RMS Titanic in 1912 attract attention even today.."

Justin Bieber: 3 Years Later

Going from posting videos on youtube to having the #1 cd in the country.



My world 2.0: "The album has received positive reviews, and debuted at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200,[2] selling over 283,000 copies, making Bieber the youngest solo male act to top the chart since 1963, and the first artist to occupy two top five spots on the chart since 2004.[2] When the album sold more copies in its second week, Bieber became the first act since The Beatles to debut at number one, and sell more the following week."



Amazing what the internet and some talent can do.

Christina Aguilera: 12 Years Later

Christina Aguilera: Genie In a Bottle (1999) vs. Not myself Tonight (2010)

Genie in A bottle: "It became a smash hit overnight, becoming one of Aguilera's most successful singles worldwide. The track went #1 on Billboard Hot 100 for five weeks, having had the longest stay at number one for the entire year. The track established Aguilera's place in pop culture as a pop phenomenon, going platinum within a few months of release. The single earned her a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 2000 and helped her win theBest New Artist Grammy that same year. Many consider this her signature song (along with "Beautiful")."



Not Myself Tonight: "The tribal-beat infused track is her sexiest record we’ve heard since 2002’s “Dirrty" ... it is a high-octane anthem that is sure to get tons of requests at nightclubs all over. While she gets it going with a sultry whisper asking her fans, “Do you wanna get crazy? ‘Cause I don’t give a f**k"…

The Wait

Sometimes you wait so long for something, that when it gets there, you almost dont realize it.

Writing a book is an interesting process. You can't be done, until you're done. You can work at full speed ahead, but it's still nothing until you're done. I've worked really hard - not at finishing, but at getting to the actual writing process itself. Now that i'm actually here. It's a weird feeling. It's taken 5 years, but i'm here. I don't know how to feel about it because everything I've felt before hand has been apprehension. Now that i'm actually working on it, it's different. It's a good feeling. It's enlightening because for the last few years I've wondered what it would feel like. I've been waiting for it. And now it's happening. I thought it would be this huge and magical experience, but it's not. It feel completely natural and easy.

It's like waiting to lose weight. You think about it for a long time, …

"J**** ***** 22 August at 07:48 Hi R****,
It was great seeing you and your husband the other day! Your son looks so big! The reason I’m writing to you today is a small matter of concern, mainly your dog. I’ve seen the way he’s been looking at my Fifi and I don’t like it. I can’t afford to take care of puppies right now so please make sure he stays away from my dog.
Hope to see you soon!

Hi J****,
Ranger isn’t an outside dog and only goes outside to do his business on the other side of the house from your yard. If he’s ever outside of the yard, he’s always on leash, so he shouldn’t bother your dog.
Cheers,
R****

I warned you about your dog! He raped my baby and now Fifi is pregnant! I told you I can’t afford puppies, so I expect you to cover all costs. I’ll drop the vet bills off tonight. R**** ********* 25 August at 16:11
Hi J***,
I’m sorry to hear that your dog is pregnant. Howev…

"Picasso was in a park when a woman approached him and asked him to draw a portrait of her. 


Picasso agreed and quickly sketches her.


After handing the sketch to her, she is pleased with the likeness and asks how much she owed to him. 

Picasso replies: "$5,000."




The woman screamed, "But it took you only five minutes."



"No, madam, it took me all my life" replied Picasso."

Monkey Banana

Start with a cage containing five monkeys.

Inside the cage, hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs under it. Before long, a monkey will go to the stairs and start to climb towards the banana. As soon as he touches the stairs, spray all of the other monkeys with cold water.

After a while, another monkey makes an attempt with the same result - all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon, when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.
Now, put away the cold water. Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and wants to climb the stairs. To his surprise and horror, all of the other monkeys attack him.

After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be assaulted.
Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in …
