I was more interested in the woman puts hot baby in oven story....or was it baby in hot oven? Or hot woman is a baby in the oven?
I never can get these things straight.

Osman bin Laden claims responsiblity for "Orb of Terror." "Stupid Americans have no idea how deadly this, bomb or homing device thing is. Return it to me at once."
2002-06-13 11:51:49 AM  
Hey, just feel lucky, had it been a green orb, we'd really be farked!

(a free arse-kicking to who recognize the reference)

I told them this 10 000 sided dice thing was a bad idea. Did they listen? Nooooo.....
2002-06-13 11:52:48 AM  
Ok, I'm sick of this...

I wonder if it's one of those "pigs" that they run through oil pipelines...
2002-06-13 11:53:10 AM  
how does a metal sphere weighing "several hundred pounds"
"float" to shore?
2002-06-13 11:53:13 AM  
Why did you think a bubble would stop him?

2002-06-13 11:53:18 AM  
Of course nobody seems to have caught.
"About 3 feet in diameter" so it is just a little bigger than an average person could wrap his arms around.
"weighs 'several hunderd pounds' " That would make it pretty dense.

I wonder how people even think this thing can float...

Watch out if two little blades pop out and it goes whizzing around funeral homes. Ugh. That comment has been stricken from the record.

For some odd reason this came to mind.

2002-06-13 11:57:25 AM  
okay I give up. Can't find actual pictures of this thing anywhere. Why couldn't the lady who found it have a vanity website?
