And the zealots rejoice

"And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided." (Exodus 14:21)

In a very interesting discovery today, chariot wheels were found at the bottom of the Red Sea. A new inquest into the veracity of the Biblical story of the Exodus has been launched.

Maybe Exodus will be the next Iliad.

MSN claims that beer goggles are real

MSN writes, "For the first time, scientists have proven that "beer goggles" are real — other people really do look more attractive to us if we have been drinking."

Well, first of all, let me say no shit. Second, who is the idiot who decided to waste their time and money and do a scientific study on this?

It's pretty straightforward, then things take a surprising twist...

"Surprisingly, the beer goggles effect was not limited to just the opposite sex among the ostensibly straight volunteers recruited for the study — they also rated people from their own sex as more attractive." (bolding not done by me, but MSN).


Here's the link to the article - the rest of it's hilarious as it goes about describing the design of the study.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince just got pushed back from November until July 2009 citing a lack of material for the summer blockbuster season because of the writer's strike.

WTF? There's going to be a lot of pissed off muggles.

Taking vanity to a new level...

I love some of the rumours out here in Hollywoodland. I thought this one was particularly funny (especially if it's true).

During the Teen Choice Awards, staff reported that Zac Efron kept complaining about the humidity because it was making his hair flat.

He proceeded to ask for an iron, saying that it was for Vanessa Hudgens, but was then caught using it!


So vain.
