Wise Words

The late Paul Newman, on getting older:

"I'm not mellower, I'm not less angry, I'm not less self-critical, I'm not less tenacious," he said. "Maybe the best part is that your liver can't handle those beers at noon anymore."

Word up, Hud.

реальная русская душа

From --

Moscow, Russia (AHN) - Eight members of a satanic gang have been arrested in Russia for stabbing to death four teenagers and then roasting and eating parts of the victims' body in a diabolical ritual.

Russian police said gang leader Nikolai Ogolobyak led the murders of Anya Gorokhova, Olga Pukhova, Varya Kuzmina and Andrei Sorokin, who were aged between 16 and 17, inside a rural cottage near his apartment in the Yaroslavl region of Russia, 300 miles northeast of Moscow.

The victims were killed in June but police only found their remains last month in a pit marked with an upside down cross, a satanic symbol. Each victim was stabbed 666 times, which is a biblical sign of the devil, and their limbs, breasts, genitals and hearts cut off.

Police were able to trace the location of the victims' bodies and their killers through a call each made in the house of Ogolobyak before they were murdered. The victims, who knew their killers, were lured one by one to the cottage and made drunk before getting butchered in two consecutive days.

Accentuate the Postive

Have to admit, I was kind of hoping the table would tip over.

The one in white is the girl from THIS STORY, by the way.

It was my own stupid fucking fault, but the cops nabbed me last week for peeing in the bushes down on the embankment. I pee outside in the dank tree-lined streets so often that I just got overconfident, like Steve Irwin with the stingray.

They charged me 1000 rubles, which is like more than $40. This compared to the fine of 150 rubles I got on the second day here, eight years ago, for peeing in the bushes.

That's some damn inflation right there.

I probably could have bartered them down, but I was just glad that didn't beat me up for being American.
