Jalapenos cheaper than psychoanalysis



So "Female Hysteria" is whats wrong with thems feminists. Most of them seem like some of those treatments there would do them some good, too, it turns out.

In WWII the US gave amphetamines to the troops to keep them alert.


During World War II, amphetamines were used extensively by the allied forces and axis forces for their stimulant and performance-enhancing effects. Eventually, as the addictive properties of the drug became known, governments began to place strict controls on the sale of amphetamine; for example, during 1970 in the United States, amphetamine became a schedule II controlled substance.

National Masturbation Month was first celebrated in 1995 in honor of Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders, who was fired by President Bill Clinton for her statements supporting masturbation for sexual health.

Masturbation Facts

The question I have: does Jesus enjoy watching?

The “hashtag” key on your keyboard (#) is called an octotroph.

Alaska has a law that says you are not allowed to look at a moose from an airplane.

There is enough sperm in one single man to impregnate every woman on earth.

The "QWERTY" keyboard was intentionally designed to be the most backwards, inefficient keyboard key layout about possible. It came from back in the pre-electric, mechanical typewriter days, when the 'actual' speed humans can type at wasnt even feasible on such rigid clunky machines. So they scrapped the few layouts of the day, and figured out QWERTY. Later on, when it was no longer needed, "we" stayed stuck on stoopid and clung on to the QWERTY. I actually went searching for a better layout board some years ago, with no luck, at teh time.

Although, it was used initially as a stimulant for her low BP. 


Yeah, the rest is conjecture for entertainment value. Thanks for the fact.


Wait so he didn't design it and name it for her? The Rita-Lean thing is false? I'm so confused right now...


Oh, factoids...
At one time, hemp was so vital to the nation that was actually illegal Not to grow it. Farmers were required to dedicate a certain percentage of their fields to grow hemp.

I haven't actually sourced this, I just read it somewhere but, it makes sense to me, so, I'm gonna go with it.

Try eating olive's, Real olives not those canned black things.

I eat olives and as long as I eat a few a week I have no pain in my hands, once I stop 2 to 3 days later I start getting pain, mostly in the winter time.

It is fun trying all the different types of olives also, but nocellara are probably the best!

I like jalapenos.
Factoid: Jalapenos were invented by a Mexican woman with a husband named Jala who had a green penis.



But You left out the other interesting facts... He was from North of the border (aka Gringo) and this was just after TheAlamo™ so although Consuelo LOVED Jala w/all Her heart, it was hard to forget Pepe a little drummer boy from Her Village. Pepe wanted to make some $$$ so He left Mexico for the brighter lights of Bakersfield.

So Consuelo fed Jala penos that made His *privates* RED.

This is how Mexico came to have a flag w/White, Green and Red.

Jala-Gringo= White.
Jala's tool= Green.
Jala's burning tool= Red.

Vaya Con Dios

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's Octothorpe. I think Octotroph is a simple bastardization that became accepted at some point.

Speaking of which, # dates back to the Romans. The symbol evolved from the abbreviation for "pound in weight". In Latin, that was Libra Pondo. The abbreviation was lb (hey, guess what we still use!) They were connected at the top with a slash, which evolved to # over the ages.

Supposedly, it was Bell Labs in the 60's that bestowed the original incarnation of the name -- Octotherp. "Octo" meaning "8" (obviously) and referring to the 8 lines sticking out the sides around the #, and "therp" being pulled out of a hind end & meaning absolutely nothing, then eventually morphing into Octothorpe.

Skinny Puppy have accused the US military of using their music to torture inmates at their Guantanamo Bay detention facility, without the band's knowledge or permission. In response, the band have sent an "invoice" to the Pentagon.
