I'm 'finally' getting around to watching 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes';

And do you remember the one ape they called "Bright Eyes"?

That was the name given to Charlton Heston in the original.

But in this movie Bright Eyes is female.

I'm wondering if they were outing Chucky?

Just sayin'.

Indiana man shoots own hand, both of his wife’s legs in gun-cleaning mishap.

But wait, there's more to this 'man fights bullet; loses' story; PLUS a comment that would have earned the poster a Duzy if it were first posted here.

"Phillip Vincze thought the weapon was clear of bullets when he pulled the trigger and shot himself through the hand, said Elkhart County sheriff’s deputies.

The bullet then struck his wife, Jennette Collins, in both legs, deputies said.

Vincze and his wife were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

The shooting, which deputies described as an accident, remains under investigation."

So this disproves the JFK conspiracy theory that a bullet can't change direction "The bullet then struck his wife, Jennette Collins, in both legs..."

As for the comment;

"In a related story a man who shot his penis last month, did not get a boner over this story."

"Certainly, Dr Andreas Vlachopoulos, a specialist in prehistoric archaeology, didn’t think so when he began fieldwork on the Aegean island four years ago. Until he chanced upon a couple of racy inscriptions and large phalluses carved into Astypalaia’s rocky peninsula at Vathy. The inscriptions, both dating to the fifth and sixth centuries BC, were “so monumental in scale” – and so tantalisingly clear – he was left in no doubt of the motivation behind the artworks."

"Chiselled into the outcrops of dolomite limestone that dot the cape, the inscriptions have provided invaluable insight into the private lives of those who inhabited archaic and classical Greece. One, believed to have been carved in the mid-sixth century BC, proclaimed: “Nikasitimos was here mounting Timiona (Νικασίτιμος οἶφε Τιμίονα.

“We know that in ancient Greece sexual desire between men was not a taboo,” added Dr Vlachopoulos, who returned to the far-flung island last week to resume work with a team of topographers, photographers, conservationists and students. “But this graffiti … is not just among the earliest ever discovered. By using the verb in the past continuous [tense], it clearly says that these two men were making love over a long period of time, emphasising the sexual act in a way that is highly unusual in erotic artwork. ”"

"The epigrapher, Angelos Matthaiou, said the graffiti had not only shed light on the very personal lives of the ancients but highlighted the extent of literacy at a time when the Acropolis in Athens had yet to be built. “Whoever wrote the erotic inscription referring to Timiona was very well trained in writing,” said Matthaiou, for more than 25 years the general secretary at the Greek Epigraphic Society. “The letters have been very skillfully inscribed on the face of the rock, evidence that it was not just philosophers, scholars and historians who were trained in the art of writing but ordinary people living on islands too.”"

The title grabbed my attention both for the great find and about sex.

However, I was intrigued about the subject of gay sex (I wonder what it was called back then) and how long the etchings will last before some homophobic asshat defaces them (because he didn't want the rock to 'tumble over' and hurt some child.

When I heard of the Taliban toppling huge statues of Buddha I wondered what new destruction carried out in religious fervor might be next and this might be next.

Just one more idiot who shoots himself (not a dog or innocent person this time!).

"Off-duty officer accidentally shoots himself in leg

A Columbus (OH) police officer unintentionally shot himself in the leg this morning, then drove himself to the hospital.

The officer, whose name has not been released, was off-duty and in his personal vehicle when the incident occurred about 5:45 a.m. in the area of I-270 and Rt. 33 on the Northwest Side.

The officer notified dispatchers and drove himself to OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital, where he is being treated for an injury not believed to be life-threatening."


I am wondering if this asshat's name will be released, after the fact.

As for the facts, off-duty and in his personal vehicle, we have to take the Columbus police department's word on that.
