UK Election: Labour faces wipeout in Scotland.

Labour is facing electoral wipeout in Scotland as the SNP is on course to win 48 seats, one of the world's most respected pollsters has forecast.

Nate Silver, a US statistician who rose to fame after correctly predicting the outcome of the last two US presidential elections, said that no party will hold a majority in Britain after the vote May 7.

He said that the Conservatives are likely to have the most seats with 283, while Labour will be on 270, the SNP on 48, the Liberal Democrats on 24 and the DUP eight.

Ukip, he suggested will have just one seat while other parties will win 16 seats between them.

Fire hoses being cut?

I'm waiting for the first DUer to justify that.

Surprise, surprise. Jenner interview was all about promoting a reality show.

A new chapter has begun for Bruce Jenner. The Olympic Gold Medal winner and E! reality star will soon embark on a public journey of his transition to a woman, as he takes strides towards living the life that is more true to himself in an all new E! docuseries premiering in July.

In a public release statement on April 24 from E!, the entertainment network announced the July 26 premiere date for the upcoming documentary series detailing Bruce Jenner’s transition from a man to a woman. The new reality series will be the second for the Olympian who has starred on the E! show Keeping Up With The Kardashians for nearly eight years, but it will be the first to detail the next chapter of his life. Bruce hopes people maintain an open mind and with the positive response seen by celebrities after his tell-all interview last night, that hope could be fulfilled.

In the new documentary series, cameras will follow Bruce on the road to his new life as a transgender woman. A life he says that he was meant to live. In a recent interview with Diane Sawyer, Bruce opened up for the first time, and last time as a man, about coming to this decision to do the docuseries, particularly how Keeping Up With The Kardashians played a role.

Looking for a good science fiction book.

And by book, I mean BOOK. I don't read from screens. Any suggestions?

Anti-vaxxers compare childhood immunization to rape




In an atmosphere where anti-vaxx activists are only slightly more popular than polio but are considerably less popular than the measles, now comes another shrill blast from an anti-vaxx group which has compared immunizing children to rape.

Yes, they went there.

The Australian Vaccination Skeptics Network (AVSNI) posted a graphic to their Facebook page on Wednesday — since taken down — with an ALL CAP headline reading: “FORCED PENETRATION.”

Bill Maher: If you’re on a safari to kill elephants and the elephant kills you instead… ‘good’

He then turned to professional big game hunter Ian Gibson who was trampled to death last week by an elephant he hoped to bag as a trophy.

“If you make your living stalking and killing innocent animals, as professional game hunter Ian Gibson did, ” Maher said. “And you’re leading a safari to kill elephants, as Ian Gibson was, and during that safari an elephant tramples you to death… good.”

Maher made note of the late “staunch Republican” Larry Upright (“Yes, Larry Upright”) whose family wrote in his obituary “The family respectfully requests that you do not vote for Hillary Clinton.”

Saying the family honored Upright with ” a moment of Fox News on mute,” Maher added, “You know what, Larry? If you think it’s funny to campaign against Hillary Clinton in your obituary, I think it’s funny that your name is ‘Upright’ and you’re dead.”

When I read something like this, I want to reach for my belt.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A University of Florida fraternity expelled three of its members Friday after allegations that they hurled insults and spat at a group of disabled military veterans at a Panama City resort.

Zeta Beta Tau Executive Director Laurence Bolotin said that the group made the expulsions after finding that its members had behaved inappropriately.

"I am deeply saddened that the actions of our members ruined this special event and failed to show the respect our military and their families so deserve," Bolotin said.

The incident occurred while the fraternity and veterans with the Warrior Beach Retreat were at the Laketown Wharf Resort last weekend. The veterans were there for an annual retreat meant to honor their service, and the fraternityhad a social function.

Linda Cope, founder of the warrior group, says the frat members were drunk and insulted the veterans and stole their flags.

........


One letter to Fuchs described students spitting on veterans, throwing beer bottles over a balcony and ripping flags off their cars.

Man cracked his penis open after injecting it with Vaseline

A man was left unable to have sex, after injecting his penis with Vaseline.

24-year-old Szilveszter had been unhappy with the size of his penis – and made the injections in order to try and lengthen it on a friend’s recommendation.

However, the Vaseline swelled his penis enormously, leaving doctors to have to “skin it like a banana” in order to prevent further damage.

He told Extreme Beauty Disasters, on TLC: “I said to my friend I want to lose weight as I think my penis is small. He said you don’t need to lose weight, I can help you. My friend injected in my penis Vaseline. Afterwards I was happy as it looked bigger.”

However, after the penis began to painfully swell, he had to seek medical treatmwent.
