Barack Obama, The Antichrist


Many people were impressed last week by the speech made by Barack Obama who is running for Senate in IL. The good folks at The Christian Forums know exactly how Obama has been able to rise from obscurity so quickly. How? Well he is the Antichrist of course.

  • People can think what they want about me, I could really give a hoot. People think that the AC is coming out of the mid-east. My personal belief is that the AC is going to rise right out of the UN, and with this guys popularity, charisma, and how he is climbing the ranks in government real fast!!!, He may be in the UN next.
  • When I first heard of Barak, a few days ago, the first thing I heard is that he is a guy who came out of nowhere and now many flock to his side. When my wife and I heard this, we both thought the same thing, the anti-christ. Now I am not claiming him to be, just something that triggered that thought in both of us.
  • My sister and I both feel something “spooky” about this guy, but can’t quite figure out what it is. It is odd that strangers come up to him on the street. Why would they do that, unless they were drawn to him.
  • I don’t think we should directly label Obama as AC, but it is very interresting. While I was watching him, the VERY FIRST thought that came to my mind was asking the Lord if I was looking at the AC. I don’t have a big opinion either way, but man, that was pretty scary.

And so on. Sheesh, and people wonder why I am an atheist.

Pope Grimace


What do you do when you get a picture of Pope Karol Wojtyala during the 1980s sticking out his tongue and making a weird face to the photographer? You put it on Ebay of course with a starting bid of $1,000,000.00!

Henri Cartier-Bresson Dies


From Galveston County Daily News:

Henri Cartier-Bresson, perhaps the most famous photojournalist of the 20th century, has died at age 95.

The photographer’s many works include “The Galveston That Was,” a book that helped revive interest in preserving Galveston’s historic architecture.

Cartier-Bresson was perhaps the world’s most famous photographer when he came to Galveston to record its old buildings and houses, many of which were decaying…..

Cartier-Bresson disdained artificial settings and said photographers should shoot accurately and quickly, seeking “the decisive moment” when the ultimate significance of a given situation is laid bare. He shot with a Leica, the quietest of cameras, working only with black and white film, and notably, without a flash. Limelight, he said, was a sure way to destroy a subject.

If you want to see some of his amazing pictures, you can go here. NSFW(some are nudes)

Crazy Limos


The bigfoot limo is one car that just screams class. More crazy limos here.

Nebulae Photos from Hubble


Tons of cool pics here. Pictured above is the Eskimo Nebula:

In its first glimpse of the heavens following the successful
December 1999 servicing mission, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope
has captured a majestic view of a planetary nebula, the glowing
remains of a dying, Sun-like star. This stellar relic, first spied
by William Herschel in 1787, is nicknamed the “Eskimo” Nebula
(NGC 2392) because, when viewed through ground-based telescopes,
it resembles a face surrounded by a fur parka.

(Thanks again Jason)

Female Masks


I am not really sure what this is about and I really don’t think I want to know what this is about. Just a gallery of scary masks.

This kind of reminds me of the Sabrina webcam. Someone in a freaky anime mask.


Good idea but I think they need some drawing lessons.

Poorly-drawn cartoons inspired by actual spam subject lines!
