Who better to deal with the committed, sociopathic religious zealots of ISIS than their mirror image: another group of committed, sociopathic religious zealots who'd like nothing better than to sacrifice them on the bloody altar of theological bigotry and delusion? Will it work? Who knows? But it's probably worth a try.

Police in Arkansas have destroyed records detailing the investigation into sexual abuse allegations against TLC's 19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar. "The judge ordered us yesterday to expunge that record," Springdale Police spokesman Scott Lewis said Friday. "As far as the Springdale Police Department is concerned this report doesn't exist." A 2006 police report, which was obtained by In Touch before its destruction, indicates that family patriarch Jim Bob Duggar knew as early as 2002 that Josh Duggar -- who was 14 at the time -- was accused of sexually abusing an underage girl. The teen was ultimately accused of inappropriately touching five underage girls, some of whom were his sisters, between 2002 and 2003.

It's pretty common, there are numerous causes (possibly including porn), medication is involved (both in inflation and deflation), bad teeth don't help, the Japanese are riddled with it, it's got nothing to do with monkey-spanking, but you might be surprised the roles coffee and a roll of postage stamps can play. read more

Jeez, Louise, what on earth is the matter with you people? Don't you realize it takes a while for the harvest to trickle down. It's called the Laughter Curve, simple math and physics and stuff like that.

PS: Sometimes you little people remind me of a passage from the Bible:

The evening arrived; the boys took their places. The master, in his cook's uniform, stationed himself at the copper; his pauper assistants ranged themselves behind him; the gruel was served out; and a long grace was said over the short commons. The gruel disappeared; the boys whispered each other, and winked at Oliver; while his next neighbours nudged him. Child as he was, he was desperate with hunger, and reckless with misery. He rose from the table; and advancing to the master, basin and spoon in hand, said: somewhat alarmed at his own temerity:

'Please, sir, I want some more.'

The master was a fat, healthy man; but he turned very pale. He gazed in stupified astonishment on the small rebel for some seconds, and then clung for support to the copper. The assistants were paralysed with wonder; the boys with fear.

'What!' said the master at length, in a faint voice.

'Please, sir,' replied Oliver, 'I want some more.'

The master aimed a blow at Oliver's head with the ladle; pinioned him in his arm; and shrieked aloud for the beadle.

The board were sitting in solemn conclave, when Mr. Bumble rushed into the room in great excitement, and addressing the gentleman in the high chair, said,

'Mr. Limbkins, I beg your pardon, sir! Oliver Twist has asked for more!'

There was a general start. Horror was depicted on every countenance.

'For MORE!' said Mr. Limbkins. 'Compose yourself, Bumble, and answer me distinctly. Do I understand that he asked for more, after he had eaten the supper allotted by the dietary?'

'He did, sir,' replied Bumble.

'That boy will be hung,' said the gentleman in the white waistcoat. 'I know that boy will be hung.'
