Zimmerman has a taker for his celebrity boxing match.

http://beamusicpro.com/game-fight-george-zimmerman-celebrity-boxing-match/



Acquitted killer George Zimmerman says he wants to take up boxing – and celebrity rapper The Game says he’s more than happy to be George Zimmerman’s first opponent.

TMZ reported that the Ali Bomaye rapper has accepted a challenge to box the infamous George Zimmerman in a celebrity boxing match being promoted by Damon Feldman. The fight is scheduled for March 1 and all proceeds go to charity. The Game is 240lbs and 6’5? and heavily muscled. Zimmerman is 5’7?, and his weight has fluctuated from 185lbs. to 285lbs. by media accounts – most of it generally not muscle.

The Game said:

“I will beat the f**k out of him. I would not be boxing for me. I’d be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family. I would box him to knock him out and I would definitely take pleasure in it. It’s legal, and I want to show him you can solve your disputes without a weapon.”

Tired of the Weather Girl? Doge Can Tell You the Weather Forecast Now

?w=500&h=247&l=50&t=40

The internet's current favourite meme Doge is now so popular that he's now got his own website doling out weather reports.

If you head over to dogeweather.com, you'll be treated to a geo-located weather forecast from Doge, complete with matching explanations in signature Doge lingo.

If the weather's rainy, like it is here in London, Doge will appear dressed in a bright yellow raincoat, together with the temperature gauge in both Celsius and Farenheit, together with helpful comments like "such wet", "very cloud" and "many rain".

"Doge" (pronounced "Dohj" like the chief magistrate of Venice) is a slang term referring to the Japanese dog breed Shiba Inu.

Photos of this dog are commonly photoshopped onto photos of amusing photographs, together with five phrases meant to illustrate the dog's internal monologue, which include adverbs like "such", "very", "many", "so", together with the mandatory interjection "wow".

just saw a nice message somewhere about how it is such a good medicine that

people take it for the side effects alone.

Warning:
Side effects may include laughter, tears, creative
ideas, music, dancing, innumerable insights, urges
to eat something delicious, and may cause you to
sleep soundly through the night.

New Mexico: Constitutional Amendment to Legalize Marijuana Prefiled

Senator Gerald Ortiz y Pino (D-Albuquerque Democrat) has prefiled a constitutional amendment proposal to legalize the adult use of marijuana in New Mexico. If approved by members of both the House and Senate, the amendment would go before state voters in the general election this November. If approved by voters, new regulations governing marijuana would go into effect in 2015.

“The whole point would be that it would be a step toward a more rational approach to a use of the substance, much as we do with alcohol now,” Senator Ortiz y Pino stated. “[T]his is basically an opportunity for the public to decide if they want to do it,” Ortiz y Pino said . “…If they don’t (vote for it) we go back to the drawing board.”

Please take a moment of your time to enter your zip code below and contact your elected officials and urge them to support this important proposal.

because of the way you, and other like minded woobashers, communicate in these threads.

You come across as smug, arrogant, closed minded,
judgmental, with a distinct lack of warmth or humility.

There seems also to be a distinct lack of creative curiosity,
or wonder.

These points lead me to question whether there is even
any live scientific intelligence therein, or simply dogmatic
programming with a touch of egomania.

This is my impression: seriously ineffective communication.
Indifference to whether understanding is being advanced;
rather only that one feels superior.

If you care about people understanding what you want
them to know, then learn to communicate in a way
that is not insulting, demeaning, condescending in
tone. Practice respect, because you are dealing
with human beings.

My impressions are opinion only, not science based or
peer reviewed, nor intended as a personal attack.
