The Best Greek Political video of 2007!

Starring the (or pretending to be) Minister of Economy,Georgios Alogoskoufis

Here’s the exact translation of what he’s saying in this video

“Ladies and gentleman we could close this (presentation) ’cause,anyway,it’s showing a neger instead of a man”

ILL_Natured_gr’s team opinion is that he totally deserves the video of the year 2007 award.
In fact we think that the Greek Government should suggest him for the Nobel…

(Political) joke

Posted by ILL Natured_gr on September 10, 2007

Osama Bin Laden himself decided to send George Bush a letter in his own handwriting to let him know he was still in the game. Bush opened the letter and it appeared to contain a single line of coded message: 370HSSV-0773H

Bush was baffled, so he e-mailed it to Condi Rice. Condi and her aides had no clue either, so they sent it to the FBI.

No one could solve it at the FBI so it went to the CIA, then to the NSA.

With no clue as to its meaning they eventually asked Britain’s MI-6 for help. Within a minute MI-6 cabled the White House with this reply: “Tell the President he’s holding the message upside down.”

Airline sacrifices goats to appease sky god

Airline sacrifices goats to appease sky god

Nepal’s state-run carrier makes offering after technical problems with 757

Updated: 3:50 p.m. ET Sept. 4, 2007

KATHMANDU – Officials at Nepal’s state-run airline have sacrificed two goats to appease Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god, following technical problems with one of its Boeing 757 aircraft, the carrier said Tuesday.

Nepal Airlines, which has two Boeing aircraft, has had to suspend some services in recent weeks due to the problem.

The goats were sacrificed in front of the troublesome aircraft Sunday at Nepal’s only international airport in Kathmandu in accordance with Hindu traditions, an official said.

“The snag in the plane has now been fixed and the aircraft has resumed its flights,” said Raju K.C., a senior airline official, without explaining what the problem had been.

Local media last week blamed the company’s woes on an electrical fault. The carrier runs international flights to five cities in Asia.

It is common in Nepal to sacrifice animals like goats and buffaloes to appease different Hindu deities.

Youth suspended over sketch of gun

Youth suspended over sketch of gun

Officials say drawing by teen ‘absolutely considered a threat’

A 13-year-old boy has been suspended for three days by an Arizona public school because he sketched a picture that resembled a gun, something school officials said they “absolutely” believed could pose a threat.

According to a report by KPHO-TV in Phoenix, it’s not the type of greeting the Mosteller family expected when they moved from Colorado Springs to Chandler, Ariz., a few weeks ago.

“My son is a very good boy,” Paul Mosteller told the television station. “He doesn’t get into trouble. There was nothing on the paper that would signify that it was a threat of any form.”

The principal at Payne Junior High School kept the actual drawing, and officials with the Chandler Unified School District declined to release any information about the situation.

“Federal privacy law forbids the school or district from discussing student discipline,” the station was told.

Mosteller said her son was just idly drawing pictures, and ended up with a fake laser.

“He was just basically doodling and not thinking a lot about it,” she said. “We’re not advocates for guns. We don’t have guns in our home. We don’t promote the use of guns. My son was just basically doodling on a piece of paper.”

School officials who initially banned the student for five days lowered the penalty to three days after discussing the situation with the boy’s father.

“I just can’t believe that there wasn’t another way to resolve this,” Mosteller told the Associated Press. “He’s so upset. The school made him feel like he committed a crime. They are doing more damage than good.”

The drawing did not show blood or bullets. Nor did it show injuries or target anyone, the Mostellers said. It just resembled a gun.

Terry Locke, a spokesman for the district, told the AP the sketch was “absolutely considered a threat,” and threatening words or pictures are punishable.

However, the school failed to contact police, and failed to provide counseling or an evaluation for the student to determine if he intended it as a threat, officials said.

The student’s father, Ben Mosteller, said school officials told him how serious they considered the situation, and discussed the 1999 massacre at Colorado’s Columbine High School, where two teens shot and killed 12 students and a teacher, and injured dozens more.

That, he said, was extreme and offensive. The family already has contacted the district’s governing board about the incident.

The station said it checked the rules students must follow at school, and found there’s nothing in a portion of the student handbook that addresses conduct to indicate the drawing of a weapon poses threat.

Participants in a local newspaper forum were irritated.

“If school officials believed this to be a threat, they are in violation of state law by failing to make a police report. Suspend them,” said “Bobo A.”

“This once great land of ours (now someone else’s) gets SICKER by the day. Not the year, not the month, not the week, but by the DAY. Dennis Prager asked a very interesting question: How did the “Greatest Generation” give birth to the “Most Stupid Generation?” (my paraphrase),” added “loamy l.”

Prager, a WND columnist, recently reported on the case in McMinnville, Ore., where students created something called “slap butt day” at Patton Middle School.

He reported that on one such day in February, “Two boys tore down the hall of Patton Middle School after lunch, swatting the bottoms of girls as they ran – what some kids later said was a common form of greeting. But bottom-slapping is against policy in McMinnville Public Schools. So a teacher’s aide sent the gawky seventh-graders to the office, where the vice principal and a police officer stationed at the school soon interrogated them.”

The students were read their Miranda rights and hauled in handcuffs to jail, where they spent the next five days.

All because the Yamhill County district attorney, Bradley Berry, brought felony sex charges against the two boys. When he finally explained himself under pressure from the media, Berry told the Oregonian, “From our perspective and the perspective of the victims, this was not just horseplay.”

But Prager reported the girls, in fact, did regard it as horseplay. And they claimed from virtually the outset that they had been pressured into making a case against the boys.

“Our beloved country is flipping out. The effects of The Age of Stupidity ushered in during the ’60s and ’70s are omnipresent. It is highly doubtful that there is a living member of the World War II generation who could have imagined that seventh-graders would one day be brought in shackles into an American courtroom for playfully swatting a girl’s buttocks,” Prager wrote.

Pub becomes embassy to beat cigarette ban

Pub becomes embassy to beat cigarette ban (Jul 5,2007)

Landlord Bob Beech is getting round next week’s cigarette ban by turning his bar into an embassy for a remote Caribbean island.

He claims the Wellington Arms in Southampton will be the only pub in Britain to allow smoking after Sunday – by becoming the UK base for tiny, uninhabited Redonda.

Earlier this month a senior “attache” to its ruler named it as the UK consulate for the island, which is 35 miles off Antigua.

As an embassy, it would be classed as “foreign soil”, allowing smokers a haven – as well as VAT-free cheap drinks, reports The Sun.

The attache who granted consulate status is Redonda’s official cardinal Edward Elder – a regular at the pub.

Cardinal Elder, 72, said: “We’ll be declaring our credentials to the Queen and will see what happens.”

Redonda’s ruler is King Robert the Bald, 60, who lives on Antigua.

The Canadian-born novelist, who recently granted a knighthood to landlord Bob, regularly sails his yacht to survey his one-mile square kingdom.

Bob said of beating the fags ban: “I have a legal team looking into the legalities at the moment but I am confident.”

The Department of Health admitted: “The smoke-free law will not be enforceable against premises that have diplomatic status.”

Free repairs to flammable toilets

Free repairs to flammable toilets (Apr 16,2007)

Japan’s leading toilet manufacturer is offering free repairs to 180,000 toilets after some of them caught fire.

There have been three incidents of the electric bidet accessory in Toto’s Z series catching fire, reports the BBC.

“Fortunately nobody was using the toilets when the fire broke out and there were no injuries,” a company spokesman said.

“The fire would have been just under your buttocks,” she added.

Toto is a pioneer of high-tech toilets with built-in bidets, which are popular in Japan.

The Z series features a pulsating massage spray, a power dryer, a “tornado wash” flush, and a lid that opens and closes automatically.

It is not sold outside Japan.

The offending loos were all manufactured between May 1996 and December 2001.
