Having read this I thought we could use a dumb ass thread for things that don't deserve their own thread but have made you hurt your eyes reading.

FURTADO: 'FEMINISM TURNED ME AGAINST MEN'

Quote
NELLY FURTADO has turned her back on her feminist past because she fears it "brainwashed" her into hating men. The LIKE A BIRD singer admits she dabbled with women's rights when she first became a star, but now she's a single mum with a "secret boyfriend" she's a huge fan of guys.

story? :roll:

Apparently she doesn't have to worry about that "16 IQ points / 40% less chance of marriage" issue.

I, on the other hand am glad for Xeno's paradoxes.

Musicians. If they open their mouths, and there's no music playing, best leave the room right quick.

1. She has a feminist past? :o
2. She has a past? (isn't she like, 23 or something?) Sorry I don't mean to be ageist or anything, but to have a past, you have to have some years under your belt.

Oh, OK - she dabbled in feminist rights.  :roll:

She tried the serious artiste "folklorico" trip last CD out and it was commercially disappointing (relatively speaking).  Apparently she's going to flog her new incarnation by performing on Canadian Idol next week.

Well I guess she felt it would be hard to 'stay' a feminist while promoting a hip hop album done with a guy in which the main song is "promiscuous?

Trying to get a new audience for whom feminism is a bad word??  :shock:
When you're on your own
When you're at a fork in the road
You don't know which way to go
There's too many signs and arrows
You haven't laughed in a while
When you can't even fake a smile
When you feel ashamed...
The uniform don't make you brave

Well unlike Alantis Morrisette she doesn't brush her hair with a pork chop.

 Oh dear.  That was only her faux-grungy bed-head look phase.  She now has a new 'do.  And on balance, Alanis never denounced feminism to make herself more girlie or to flog more CDs.

Dumbass award/Darwin award this guy deserves something.

DALLAS
Quote
(AP) - A patient wearing an oxygen mask tried to light a cigarette in his hospital room, sparking a fire that forced the evacuation of more than 100 patients, destroyed the room and melted medical equipment, officials said.

A nurse rescued the man from his burning bed shortly after the Thursday night blaze started. He suffered serious burns and was taken to the burn unit at another Dallas hospital. No one else was hurt, hospital officials said.

"He somehow got the strength to smoke a cigarette with a non-removable mask," Dallas Fire-Rescue Capt. Paul Martinez said. "I don't know how he did it, but he did it."

That's dumb.  But getting back to Nelly Furtado and her whole thing about feminists hating men.  I have proof that feminists are compassionate, caring and tolerant people.  The proof?   Well, this is largely a feminist board.  If feminists hate men, it would naturally follow that "they" would especially hate me.  Yet I have lasted far longer on BreadnRoses than I ever did on EnMasse.  And, aside from my initial run on Rabble (April 2004 - December 2004 -- they banned me right before Christmas!!!) I have lasted far longer here than on Rabble.  So clearly, feminists aren't as bad as they're cracked up to be by Nelly Furtado.

From the NewsHounds comes this Keith Olbermann clip of a man pulled over for speeding and for listening to Bill O'Reilly so loud it could be heard more than 25 ft. away.

The man calls the officer a "donut-eater" and "a swine" and repeatedly tells the officer he should be ashamed of himself.

Judy writes: "At last, empirical evidence that listening to Fox News' Bill O'Reilly turns people into jerks."
