Fallen Heros / Red Friday

First Place

Second Place

Red Fridays.

Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing

Red every Friday The reason? Americans who support our troops used to be called the "silent majority." We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers. We
are not organized, boisterous or overbearing.
Many Americans, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to recognize that the vast majority of America supports our troops. Our idea of showing
solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and
respect starts this Friday -- and continues each and
every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that .... every red-blooded American
who supports our men and women afar, will wear

something red.
By word of mouth, press, TV -- let's make the United
States on every Friday a sea of red much like a
homecoming football game in the bleachers. If every

one of us who loves this country will share this with
acquaintances, coworkers, friends, and family, it will
not be long before the USA is covered in RED and it
will let our troops know the once "silent" majority is
on their side more than ever, certainly more than the media lets on.
The first thing a soldier says when asked "What can
we do to make things better for you?" is ..."We need your support and your prayers." Let's get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example, and wear something red every Friday.

The Tree Man Who Grew Roots.

Dede, now 35, baffled medical experts when warty "roots" began growing out of his arms and feet after he cut his knee in a teenage accident.

Dr Anthony Gaspari and Dede
Watch: Dr Anthony Gaspari believes that he has diagnosed Dede's rare condition

The welts spread across his body unchecked and soon he was left unable to carry out everyday household tasks.

Sacked from his job and deserted by his wife, Dede has been raising his two children - now in their late teens - in poverty, resigned to the fact that local doctors had no cure for his condition.

To make ends meet he even joined a local "freak show", parading in front of a paying audience alongside victims of other peculiar diseases.

Although supported by his extended family, he was often a target of abuse and ridicule in his rural fishing village.

But now an American dermatology expert who flew out to Dede's home village south of the capital Jakarta claims to have identified his condition, and proposed a treatment that could transform his life.

Watch: The growths on Dede's arms and feet are known as 'cutaneous horns'

After testing samples of the lesions and Dede's blood, Dr Anthony Gaspari of the University of Maryland concluded that his affliction is caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), a fairly common infection that usually causes small warts to develop on sufferers.

Dede's problem is that he has a rare genetic fault that impedes his immune system, meaning his body is unable to contain the warts.

The virus was therefore able to "hijack the cellular machinery of his skin cells", ordering them to produce massive amounts of the substance that caused the tree-like growths known as "cutaneous horns" on his hands and feet.

Dede's counts of a key type of white blood cell are so low that Dr Gaspari initially suspected he may have the Aids virus.

But tests showed he did not, and it became clear that Dede's immune condition was something far rarer and more mysterious.

Warts aside, he had enjoyed remarkable good health throughout his life - which would not be expected of someone with a suppressed immune system - and neither his parents nor his siblings have shown signs of developing lesions.

"The likelihood of having his deficiency is less than one in a million," Dr Gaspari told the Telegraph.

Dede with his teenage daughter
Watch: Dede with his teenage daughter. He fears that his children may also become infected

Dr Gaspari, who became involved in the case through a Discovery Channel documentary, believes that Dede's condition can be largely cleared up by a daily doses of a synthetic form of Vitamin A, which has been shown to arrest the growth of warts in severe cases of HPV.

"He won't have a perfectly normal body but the warts should reduce in size to the point where he could use his hands," Dr Gaspari said.

"Over the course of three to six months the warts should be come smaller and fewer in number. He will be living a more normal life."

The most resilient warts could then be frozen off and the growths on his hands and feet surgically removed.

Dr Gaspari hopes to get the necessary drugs free of charge from pharmaceutical firms. They would then be administered by Indonesian doctors under his supervision.

Still intrigued by the origins of Dede's peculiar immune condition, the doctor would like to fly him to the United States for further examination, but fears the financial and bureaucratic barriers would prove too difficult to overcome.

"I would like to bring him to the US to run tests on where his immune condition has come from, but I would need funding and to get him a visa as well as someone to cover the costs of the tests," he said.

"I've never seen anything like this in my entire career."

  • An Elephant Never Forgets

    Rachel Cope sent me this sweet story:

    I'm not going soft, but sometimes I like these heartwarming stories, and this one truly is amazing. Enjoy.

    In 1986, Dan Harrison was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University.

    On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Dan approached it very carefully.

    He got down on one knee and inspected the elephant's foot and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it.

    As carefully and as gently as he could, Dan worked the wood out with his hunting knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Dan stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being
    trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away.

    Dan never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.

    Twenty years later, Dan was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenaged son.

    As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Dan and his son Dan Jr. were standing.

    The large bull elephant stared at Dan, lifted its front foot off the ground, and then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.

    Remembering the encounter in 1986, Dan couldn't help wondering if this was the same elephant.

    Dan summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its
    trunk around one of Dan's legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.

    It probably wasn't the same elephant.

    Made-up story about Hyles-Anderson College

    I found this fabricated story about Hyles-Anderson here.

    It says that HAC is trying to make a coin so America will never forget Bro. Hyles. It's really a funny, and kinda pathetic attempt at theological satire. The best part is where they "quote" Dr. Evans.

    Hyles-Anderson College Proposes "Authorized Coin"


    The excitement level was high last Thursday at Hyles-Anderson College. The fundamentalist school founded by the Reverend Jack Hyles finalized and submitted a proposal to the United States government to issue a one dollar "Authorized" commemorative coin featuring the late minister.

    Hyles pastored the First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana for over 40 years during which time he founded Hyles-Anderson College, staunchly defended the King James Bible and forcefully spoke out against other Christian leaders as being 'liberals.'

    The announcement was made to the student body during Thursday's chapel service. "This is an historic day." Said Dr. Jack Schaap, pastor of First Baptist Church Hammond and Chancellor of the college. "We are submitting this proposal to the United States Government as a lasting monument to the work of Brother Hyles and the King James Bible. This coin will be a witness of his work and the purity of the Authorized Version 1611 every tim
    e someone spends a dollar."

    The coin will feature a portrait of Hyles on the obverse along with the national motto "In God We Trust," and the standard U.S. coin information, the date and the mint mark. On the reverse of the coin there will be an artistic rendition of an open Bible, the phrase "e pluribus unum" and "The Authorized Version of 1611" commemorating the King James Version of the Bible.

    "I have never seen such a beautiful coin." Said Dr. Wendell Evans, president of the college. "This coin is perfect and without error. It is pure, refined in a fire seven times. We are hoping and praying that the United States Government will see fit to authorize this beautiful coin."

    But the celebration and enthusiasm may be short-lived.

    "This is very strange." Said United States Mint Director Edmund Moy. "The United States Government does not receive proposals for coinage in this fashion. I'm not sure what these people are expecting will happen, but I can assure you the U.S. mint will not be minting any Jack Hyles coins in the future."

    But Hyles-Anderson College remains confident.

    "Our faith is strong on this matter." Said Schaap. "We are confident that the Authorized Coin will be approved and that soon millions of Americans will know the great legacy of Jack Hyles."

    Happy Haloween!

    Ok, so last night we went to Waikiki to "check out the costumes". We had NO idea how crazy and fun it is here! Seriously, I would estimate 5,000+ people dressed up with the best costumes! After walking up and down the strip, meeting people, taking pictures, and having a blast, we found some magazine stands to perch on.

    It was the best view for the awesomest party of my life! We were having so much fun, that we forgot the parking garage closed at midnight! I felt like Cinderella running down the street to see if we had indeed been locked out! After passing tons of people, a few druken folks, and a police car with a slashed tire, we discovered that, indeed, we were toast!

    Well, you would think the 40 or so cops standing around would afford some help, but this was not the case. We were given directions to the only convenience store open, and set out to purchased the essentials for a night's stay in Waikiki.

    Interesting to say the least, was our midnight stroll. We stopped for breakfast at a little pancake place, and finally found a drugstore where we could obtain what we needed, including a great bargain on blankets and pillows.

    Thus began the longest walk of my life, back to the beach. Confusing streets, scary allies, out of control sprinklers, deep mud, and a canal with only one bridge were just the tip of the iceberg. I was never so happy to finally reach the hotel's beach, blow up my pillow, and recline on a padded cabana-covered chair. Thankfully, the hotel staff was gracious enough to let us rest in peace.

    The soldier and his new girlfriend he met were not as considerate. We were awakened an hour later to hear him loudly trying to persuade her how wonderful it would be to skinny-dip in the Pacific. Of course, with Bacardi on his side, he won, and I was SHOCKED to see two complete strangers strip completely, and head for the water! However, I don't think they counted on the 15 or so people who would be there when they emerged, as they were very apologetic to all those offered a free show on the beach!

    A little before six, we headed to the car, and were amused (and appalled) to see that someone had poured soap in a huge fountain, and it was filled with suds! At last, we found a security guard who opened the gate for us, and we were on our way, driving into the sunRISE. A definite first for me. Ok, most of that was a first for me.

    Happy Halloween, folks!

    How to Detect Lies

    Become a Lie Detector

    Introduction to Detecting Lies:

    The following techniques to telling if someone is lying are often used by police, and security experts. This knowledge is also useful for managers, employers, and for anyone to use in everyday situations where telling the truth from a lie can help prevent you from being a victim of fraud/scams and other deceptions.

    Warning: Sometimes Ignorance is bliss; after gaining this knowledge, you may be hurt when it is obvious that someone is lying to you.

    how to see a fake smile

    Signs of Deception:

    Body Language of Lies:

    • Physical expression will be limited and stiff, with few arm and hand movements. Hand, arm and leg movement are toward their own body the liar takes up less space.

    • A person who is lying to you will avoid making eye contact.

    • Hands touching their face, throat & mouth. Touching or scratching the nose or behind their ear. Not likely to touch his chest/heart with an open hand.

    Emotional Gestures & Contradiction

    • Timing and duration of emotional gestures and emotions are off a normal pace. The display of emotion is delayed, stays longer it would naturally, then stops suddenly.

    • Timing is off between emotions gestures/expressions and words. Example: Someone says "I love it!" when receiving a gift, and then smile after making that statement, rather then at the same time the statement is made.

    • Gestures/expressions don’t match the verbal statement, such as frowning when saying “I love you.”

    • Expressions are limited to mouth movements when someone is faking emotions (like happy, surprised, sad, awe, )instead of the whole face. For example; when someone smiles naturally their whole face is involved: jaw/cheek movement, eyes and forehead push down, etc.

    Interactions and Reactions

    • A guilty person gets defensive. An innocent person will often go on the offensive.

    • A liar is uncomfortable facing his questioner/accuser and may turn his head or body away.

    • A liar might unconsciously place objects (book, coffee cup, etc.) between themselves and you.

    Verbal Context and Content

    • A liar will use your words to make answer a question. When asked, “Did you eat the last cookie?” The liar answers, “No, I did not eat the last cookie.”

    •A statement with a contraction is more likely to be truthful: “ I didn't do it” instead of “I did not do it”

    • Liars sometimes avoid "lying" by not making direct statements. They imply answers instead of denying something directly.

    • The guilty person may speak more than natural, adding unnecessary details to convince you... they are not comfortable with silence or pauses in the conversation.

    • A liar may leave out pronouns and speak in a monotonous tone. When a truthful statement is made the pronoun is emphasized as much or more than the rest of the words in a statement.

    • Words may be garbled and spoken softly, and syntax and grammar may be off. In other
    words, his sentences will likely be muddled rather than emphasized.

    Bed sheets

    An extremely modest man was in the hospital
    for a series of tests, the last of which had left
    his bodily systems extremely upset.
    Upon making several false alarm trips to the
    bathroom, he decided the latest episode was another
    and stayed put. He suddenly filled his bed with
    diarrhea and was embarrassed beyond his ability to
    remain rational.
    In a complete loss of composure he jumped
    out of bed, gathered up the bed sheets, and threw
    them out the hospital window.
    A drunk was walking by the hospital when the
    sheets landed on him. He started yelling, cursing,
    and swinging his arms violently trying to get the
    unknown things off, and ended up with the soiled
    sheets in a tangled pile at his feet.
    As the drunk stood there, unsteady on his
    feet, staring down at the sheets, a hospital
    security guard, (barely containing his laughter),
    and who had watched the whole incident, walked up
    and asked, "What the heck is going on here?"
    The drunk, still staring down at the bed
    sheets in amazement, replied: "I think I just beat
    the crap out of a ghost."
    Happy Halloween !!!!!!!!!

    Throwing Money Away

    Presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and John Edwards were flying to a convention. Barack looked at Hillary, chuckled and said, "You know, I could throw a $1,000 bill out of the window right now and make somebody very happy."
    Hillary shrugged her shoulders and replied, "I could throw ten $100 bills out of the window and make ten people very happy."
    John added, "That being the case, I could throw one hundred $10 bills out of the window and make a hundred people very happy."
    Hearing their exchange, the pilot rolled his eyes and said to his co-pilot, "Such big-shots back there. I could throw all of them out of the window and make 156 million people very happy."

    The Geek Brain Explained


    The article goes on to say that you can retrain your brain to isolate to just one task at a time (if you really wanted to); however, studies are starting to show that multitasking can actually create more problems than it solves. Do you agree or disagree with the writer's opinion that poor attention spans are nothing more than multitasking gone awry? Let's hear in the comments.

    6 Confessions Of A Former Sprint Sales Rep

    Sprint has joined the ranks of cell phone providers whose former (and current) sales reps are beating down the Consumerist's door, eager to tell all. Let us move without delay to the confessions of a former Sprint sales rep:

    Get the Sprint Employee Referral Offer: "Get on the SERO plan! Sprint Employee Referral Offer. It's a nice little plan designed specifically for friends and family of Sprint employees. They require that you have an email address of a Sprint employee, but that's simple to get. Remember that business card the sales rep gave you, or should have given you if they're were good. Take that name and use it, john.x.doe@sprint.com. To see the plans themselves or sign up, go to www.sprint.com/sero ($50/1250 minutes/7pm nights/unlimited vision)"

    Play the Extended Service and Repair Program Game: If you've lost your phone or dropped it in water, you can buy a new "broken" phone on ebay, activate it, and take that one into the store for ESRP benefits, according to our tipster. "Phone doesn't work? Water damage? What are you to do! Buy a phone on ebay, it doesn't have to work so long as it hasn't been flagged as lost or stolen. Get the phone activated and take it into the store. They'll fix or replace it usually on the spot because you have ESRP. Now keep in mind, if you do this excessive times, we'll refuse to service you (the system counts how many times you've had a phone replaced/serviced)." (This might be illegal somehow, we don't really know.)

    Buy your phone at the end of the month when the reps are desperate for commission on activations. " Reps will always discount phones, they don't make commission on the price of the phone, they make it on everything else. They're also desperate for activations (best time to go activate is near the end of the month when they're truly desperate). Add a few accessories or get that 2nd line, just return them later, you still get the awesome deal on the phone.

    Cancel without ETF By "moving" to the middle of the desert: This is an old trick, but the tipster says it works with Sprint. "Want to cancel but are stuck in a contract and don't care about keeping your number? Change your billing to e-billing (to avoid a paper statement), call customer care and have them change your address to an address not covered by the network (go on the website, find a hole, do a google earth search and find an address around there). Then say, "oh my, well if you can't provide service to me there, I'll have to cancel." Sprint is now obligated to cancel your contract without a termination fee because if they can't service you, how can they charge you for service? Usually they want to cancel your number, but you might be able to convince them that Company B has coverage and you would like to port.

    Retention Specialists have power: Cancel everything that's not required in your contract. There's a retention offer waiting for you. Example: "there are retention offers for things such as text messaging (unlimited for $10 I believe), plans, services, etc. Just ask! "

    Get a big discount for working for a big company (or saying that you do): "Get a discount because you work for the man! Are you an employee of a major organization? Tell Sprint you work for them then! You'll get anywhere from 7-28% off of your monthly bill. Tip, Chase bank employees get the highest discount (I believe it was 28%). Even if you don't work there, they don't ask for proof that you do. "

    Thanks to the Sprint Guy for these excellent tips! Where are you Alltel? U.S. Cellular? We're listening if you want to confess... tips [at] consumerist [dot] com.—MEGHANN MARCO

    What Am I Doing Wrong?


    What am I doing wrong?

    Okay, I'm tired of beating around the bush. I'm a beautiful
    (spectacularly beautiful) 25 year old girl. I'm articulate and classy.
    I'm not from New York. I'm looking to get married to a guy who makes at
    least half a million a year. I know how that sounds, but keep in mind
    that a million a year is middle class in New York City, so I don't think
    I'm overreaching at all.

    Are there any guys who make 500K or more on this board? Any wives? Could
    you send me some tips? I dated a business man who makes average around
    200 - 250. But that's where I seem to hit a roadblock. 250,000 won't get
    me to central park west. I know a woman in my yoga class who was married
    to an investment banker and lives in Tribeca, and she's not as pretty as
    I am, nor is she a great genius. So what is she doing right? How do I
    get to her level?

    Here are my questions specifically:

    - Where do you single rich men hang out? Give me specifics- bars,
    restaurants, gyms

    -What are you looking for in a mate? Be honest guys, you won't hurt my

    -Is there an age range I should be targeting (I'm 25)?

    - Why are some of the women living lavish lifestyles on the upper east
    side so plain? I've seen really 'plain jane' boring types who have
    nothing to offer married to incredibly wealthy guys. I've seen drop dead
    gorgeous girls in singles bars in the east village. What's the story

    - Jobs I should look out for? Everyone knows - lawyer, investment
    banker, doctor. How much do those guys really make? And where do they
    hang out? Where do the hedge fund guys hang out?

    - How you decide marriage vs. just a girlfriend? I am looking for

    Please hold your insults - I'm putting myself out there in an honest
    way. Most beautiful women are superficial; at least I'm being up front
    about it. I wouldn't be searching for these kind of guys if I wasn't
    able to match them - in looks, culture, sophistication, and keeping a
    nice home and hearth.

    it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial
    List PostingID:


    Dear Pers-:

    I read your posting with great interest and have thought meaningfully
    about your dilemma. I offer the following analysis of your predicament.
    Firstly, I'm not wasting your time, I qualify as a guy who fits your
    bill; that is I make more than $500K per year. That said here's how I
    see it.

    Your offer, from the prospective of a guy like me, is plain and simple a
    crappy business deal. Here's why. Cutting through all the B.S., what you
    suggest is a simple trade: you bring your looks to the party and I bring
    my money. Fine, simple. But here's the rub, your looks will fade and my
    money will likely continue into perpetuity...in fact, it is very likely
    that my income increases but it is an absolute certainty that you won't
    be getting any more beautiful!

    So, in economic terms you are a depreciating asset and I am an earning
    asset. Not only are you a depreciating asset, your depreciation
    accelerates! Let me explain, you're 25 now and will likely stay pretty
    hot for the next 5 years, but less so each year. Then the fade begins in
    earnest. By 35 stick a fork in you!

    So in Wall Street terms, we would call you a trading position, not a buy
    and hold...hence the rub...marriage. It doesn't make good business sense
    to "buy you" (which is what you're asking) so I'd rather lease. In case
    you think I'm being cruel, I would say the following. If my money were
    to go away, so would you, so when your beauty fades I need an out. It's
    as simple as that. So a deal that makes sense is dating, not marriage.

    Separately, I was taught early in my career about efficient markets. So,
    I wonder why a girl as "articulate, classy and spectacularly beautiful"
    as you has been unable to find your sugar daddy. I find it hard to
    believe that if you are as gorgeous as you say you are that the $500K
    hasn't found you, if not only for a tryout.

    By the way, you could always find a way to make your own money and then
    we wouldn't need to have this difficult conversation.

    With all that said, I must say you're going about it the right way.
    Classic "pump and dump."
    I hope this is helpful, and if you want to enter into some sort of
    lease, let me know.

    Death Be Not Proud

    Death Be Not Proud

    by John Donne

    DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee
    Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so,
    For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,
    Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
    From rest and sleepe, which but thy pictures bee,
    Much pleasure, then from thee, much more must flow,
    And soonest our best men with thee doe goe,
    Rest of their bones, and soules deliverie.
    Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men,
    And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse dwell,
    And poppie, or charmes can make us sleepe as well,
    And better then thy stroake; why swell'st thou then;
    One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally,
    And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die.

    What To Do In An Emergency


    The fun thing is that these pictures are so ambiguous they could mean anything! Here are a few interpretations.

    1. If you have set yourself on fire, do not run
    2. If you spot terrorism, blow your anti-terrorism whistle. If you are Vin Diesel, yell really loud.
    3. If you spot a terrorist arrow, pin it against the wall with your shoulder
    4. If you are sprayed with an unknown substance, stand and think about it instead of seeing a doctor.
    5. Use your flashlight to lift the walls right off of you!
    6. The proper way to eliminate smallpox is to wash with soap, water and at least one (1) armless hand.
    7. Michael Jackson is a terrorist. If you spot this smooth criminal with dead, dead eyes, run away.
    8. Hurricanes, animal corpses and the biohazard symbol have a lot in common. Think about it.
    9. Be on the lookout for terrorists with pinkeye and leprosy. Also, they tend to rub their hands together manically.
    10. If a door is closed, karate chop it open.
    11. After exposure to radiation it is important to consider that you may have mutated to gigantic dimensions: watch your head.
    12. If you've become a radiation mutant with a deformed hand, remember to close the window. No one wants to see that mess.
    13. If you hear the Backstreet Boys, Michael Bolton or Yanni on the radio, cower in the corner or run like hell.
    14. If your lungs and stomach start talking, stand with your arms akimbo until they stop.
    15. If you are trapped under falling debris, conserve oxygen by not farting.
    16. If you lose a contact lens during a chemical attack, do not stop to look for it.
    17. Do not drive a station wagon if a power pole is protruding from the hood.
    18. A one-inch thick piece of plywood should be sufficient protection against radiation.
    19. Always remember to carry food with you during a terrorist attack. At least you'll be able to enjoy a nice coke and apple before you die.
