After so many pretentious and misogynist tabloid articles on the death of chivalry/etiquette/manners, this one reasonable article on the subject came out of nowhere.

Quote
"I think a lot of the behaviour in the past was predicated on the notion that females are a fairer sex, weaker or less capable in some way... I think that is quite outdated and almost irrelevant in modern society.

"Nowadays you don't see gentlemen throwing their coats in puddles and rushing over to the other side of the horse and cart to help a woman down. In modern society it is really just about empathy."

It's also worth it for the inset picture of Hugh Jackman looking incredibly dopey.

Serpent-handling pastor dies from rattlesnake bite

Quote
Mark Randall “Mack” Wolford was known all over Appalachia as a daring man of conviction. He believed that the Bible mandates that Christians handle serpents to test their faith in God — and that, if they are bitten, they trust in God alone to heal them.

...

Wolford was 15 when he saw his father die at age 39 of a rattlesnake bite in almost exactly the same circumstances.

I've seen that stuff with mallards. When the number of males got a lot more than the number of females they started gang-raping and whatnot. That drove off the rest of the females, and after that it was basically the US prison system in a duck-pond.

Council reverses ban on schoolgirl's food blog

Do yourself a favour and check out the blog, too. Each proper entry also has a contributor from another part of the world, which is really cool.

Mitt Romney has a Koch problem.

This refers of course to the Koch brothers who pronounce their name rhyming with "Coke."  The alternative pronunciation of "Cock" remains remarkably appropriate.

I think it's one of those names with lots of pronunciations.  The Koch brothers in question do pronounce their name as "coke."  Beastie Boys listeners may identify that a former mayor of New York pronounced it Ed "Kotch."  I know at least one person from school who pronounced it "cock."  Kosh or Kuck or Kutch probably all also exist depending on who's saying it.

In actual German, I believe the correct pronunciation is the Ko followed by the noise you make when hocking a loogie.

That article didn't have all the hilarity of this one:

http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-pn-romney-hamptons-fundraiser-20120708,0,2162850,print.story
Quote
A New York City donor a few cars back, who also would not give her name, said Romney needed to do a better job connecting. "I don't think the common person is getting it," she said from the passenger seat of a Range Rover stamped with East Hampton beach permits. "Nobody understands why Obama is hurting them.

"We've got the message," she added. "But my college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies -- everybody who's got the right to vote -- they don't understand what's going on. I just think if you're lower income -- one, you're not as educated, two, they don't understand how it works, they don't understand how the systems work, they don't understand the impact."

Quote
The Zambrellis scoffed at attempts by the Democrats -- who mocked Romney in an ad Sunday as "great for oil billionaires, bad for the middle class" -- to wage class warfare.  "Would you like to hear about the fundraisers I went to for him?" Sharon Zambrelli said of Obama. "Do you have an hour? ... All the ones in the city -- it was all of Wall Street."

"It's not helping the economy to pit the people who are the engine of the economy against the people who rely on that engine," Michael Zambrelli said as the couple waited in their SUV for clearance into the Creeks shortly after the candidate's motorcade flew by and entered the pine-tree lined estate. "He's basically been biting the hand that fed him in '08. ... I would bet 25% of the people here were supporters of Obama in '08. And they're here now."
