I fart. You fart, we all fart, although many women claim that they don't.
Sometimes my farts have led to uncomfortable situations or embarrassment. But as powerful, mighty and plentiful as my farts can be, they have never brought down a plane.
Perhaps no one's has...until now.
Flatulence forces plane to land Wed Dec 6, 7:07 AM ET
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - An American Airlines flight was forced to make an emergency landing Monday morning after a passenger lit a match to disguise the scent of flatulence, authorities said.
The Dallas-bound flight was diverted to Nashville after several passengers reported smelling burning sulfur from the matches, said Lynne Lowrance, spokeswoman for the Nashville International Airport Authority. All 99 passengers and five crew members were taken off and screened while the plane was searched and luggage was screened.
The FBI questioned a passenger who admitted she struck the matches in an attempt to conceal a "body odor," Lowrance said. She had an unspecified medical condition, authorities said.
SEE, THE TERRORISTS ARE WINNING THE TERRORISTS ARE WINNING. The common practice of covering up poopy smells with matches has fallen victim to Osama's mad plans for world domination.
So, the new Iraq Study Group Report is out today. I am not going to make an in depth post about it. Every blog and newspaper has one already and what did we really learn anyway? Iraq is fucked, the US is fucked, its a disaster, we need to leave.

Dick Cheney's daugherter Mary, openly lesbian, is pregnant. She and her long time partner are going to be mommy and mommy.
Imagine the outcry from the wingnuts if he were a democrat. It would be a sweetener for the right-wing gay-bashing Evangelicals, FOX News, Hate radio hosts etc. et. al But by their very silence in regard to the THEIR VP, a real "base" man shows their hypocrisy once again. Remember they said nothing about gay-whore Jeff Gannon getting a White House press pass with a front row seat.
