Communist gnome takes over Travelocity

Travelocity supports commie vacations
Personally I blame that perky gnome. Online travel agent Travelocity has been booking vacations between U.S. cities and Cuba, contrary to the deeply-held American belief that cigar-smoking commies are agents of evil. According to this article, between 1998 and 2004, the service booked about 1,500 such trips. Travelocity has agreed to pay a US$182,750 fine for supporting the leftist regime off the coast of Florida.

I’m slightly surprised that this was allowed to continue for six years. You’d think some gun-toting U.S. patriot would have noticed this commie plot and put a stop to it, or least reported it to the appropriate federal agency. Perhaps people simply enjoy their contraband cigars too much to care.

No photos, please. We’re Japanese
One particular market that seems impervious to economics downturns is that of the Japanese schoolgirl pantie. Like food and haircuts, school girl panties are a staple that perverts can’t be without. But the schoolgirls are fighting back. And not in some silly Quentin Tarantino kung-fu way, but with an honest to goodness pantie upgrade. For years, Japanese men have tried to sneak a peak at the panties while they’re still on the wearer using camera phones, even going to far as to use night vision technology to get a glimpse of what’s underneath. But now there’s a fabric that’s resistant even to infrared, ensuring the wearer that what they’re concealing will remain that way, once again proving that there’s more to Japanese schoolgirls than Hello Kitty purses and giggling a lot.

Plenty of room for stupidity in space program
Perhaps shedding some light on why the Space Shuttle program has been such a non-starter for the last few decades, NASA has been forced to admit it can’t accurately read the air temperature. Apparently, it took an eagle-eyed blogger to point out the agency’s flaw. Statistics from the past seven years have come under scrutiny, pointing to the fact that NASA has been using incorrect numbers when assessing global warming trends. Sure, we were wrong, said NASA but not that wrong. They and others still maintain there is evidence to support the global warming theory. Maybe they were just standing a little too close to the launch pad during shuttle take-offs. That’d be enough to singe your eyebrows and ruin a few thermometers.</p
