Michael Schumacher - best wishes.
I really thought it was a hoax. I mean, Eddie Murphy died three times skiing in recent years.

Even fossil fuel ships are having a hard time saving these guys. They just didn't grasp that ice can melt in one place but gain ice in another. http://www.foxnews.com/science/2013/12/ ... s-melting/

This information may very well be true, but I'd be a lot more likely to buy it if it came from some other news source without such an obvious agenda.

You have to be kidding me !!!! This is National news!!!!!!!! and a direct quote from the lead scientist who is stuck in the ice with his crew. As for your comment on fox news you are ignorant and obviously have not read or watched the news, making your comment false. You must be one of the dumb fucks that voted for obama, and his admin. you know the ones that never lie mislead and have such a good record of running the country. you want a fun fact; world war two, took less time to win, than the time the obama admin has been working on the ACA web site, and that still isn't working, and these schmucks want to administer health care?

Thank you so much for proving my point by getting so bent out of shape. You are obviously the target audience Fox is looking for. Since you "asked", I have no love for ANY politicians. I have made this clear time and time again in this very forum. They are ALL corrupt because being part of our political system requires corruption. Yet once again, anytime anyone dares to say anything against the sacred Fox machine, people go into a fit and start assuming they are all in love with Obama and liberal viewpoints. It's sad that you always assume anyone who even considers another point of view must be in love with everything you hate. I trully have no idea how you could possibly think you needed to bring attack Obama and healthcare. What in the hell does that have to do with anything I said?

Also, your claim that they "didn't grasp that ice can melt in one place but gain ice in another" is just dumb. Do you actually believe that these scientists are so dumb that they had no clue it was possible they would get stuck in ice? No, you don't. But by saying so, you get to poke fun at the intelligence of someone who has a different point of view than you do. Makes you feel good huh?

By the way, the part that is "National News" is the fact that a boat got stuck in ice. (Wow, that has never happened before!) The part that is NOT "national News" is the particular spin Fox decided to put on the facts. They are trying to insinuate that a boat that is trying to prove ice is melting that then gets stuck in ice means that the liberal agenda on global warming is wrong. I bet even Discoboy can see the fallacy in such logic. Is global warming real? I have no idea, but connecting a boat getting stuck in ice as proof is just silly, and is an intentional manipulation of the facts by a news source that is ALWAYS pushing a conservative agenda. "Fair and Balanced" my ass. NO news source is without an agenda, and there are MANY news sources that have a strong liberal agenda, but Fox is far beyond obvious in their constant attempts to turn opinions into facts, just to promote an agenda and make another dollar.

Again your observations of fox news are simply wrong, in fact it is one of the few sources that gives all views and lets you decide. The goal of the ship that is stuck is to prove man made global warming ! That is their explanation of what their goal is. Now then they are stuck in ice . Are they not? They on the crew did not think it would happen , they say that! And yes i do think they are so dumb that they are stuck in ice, or is it that they are so smart? I am not Bent out of shape I am frustrated by idiots spewing crap when they do not know what they speak. Like you. Again check other news sources, the great msnbc even had a spot basically saying the same thing as the fox news spot. Why not check how many Scientific ships have gotten stuck in ice in the antarctic lately, the argument over man made global warming is so damaging to the world economy especially the US, that this is the news that needs to be pit on the front page, not the bat shit rags like the NY times is pushing today, and yes I am Bashing Obama as this schmuck has done more to restrict our freedoms and tank the economy than most.

I agree with Duchamp when it comes to FOX.
In fact, it's pretty well said.

First off, Conservatives admit they are conservative leaning:

Writing for the Los Angeles Times, Republican and conservative columnist Jonah Goldberg indicated his belief that Fox News was rightward-leaning: "Look, I think liberals have reasonable gripes with Fox News. It does lean to the right, primarily in its opinion programming but also in its story selection (which is fine by me) and elsewhere. But it's worth remembering that Fox is less a bastion of ideological conservatism and more a populist, tabloid-like network."

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articl ... two_a.html

Even their own people admit it:

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly has stated that "Fox does tilt right"

http://mediamatters.org/research/2004/0 ... eas/131479

And supposed neutral sources:

Progressive media watch dog groups such as Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR)[14] and Media Matters for America,[15] have argued that Fox News reporting contains conservative editorializing within news stories. FAIR also asserted that in a study of a 19 week period from January 2001 to May 2001 the ratio of conservative guests to liberals on Special Report with Brit Hume was 50:6, and obtained similar data from other Fox shows.[16]

http://fair.org/extra-online-articles/f ... d-sources/

The Project on Excellence in Journalism report in 2006 showed that 68 percent of Fox cable stories contained personal opinions, as compared to MSNBC at 27 percent and CNN at 4 percent. The "content analysis" portion of their 2005 report also concluded that "Fox was measurably more one-sided than the other networks, and Fox journalists were more opinionated on the air."

http://stateofthemedia.org/2005/cable-t ... -analysis/


Yes, I admit that some of my sources are all older sources, but is it your argument that Fox USED to be really biased, but just stopped, because the people that watch them suddenly stopped being so conservative?

Napoleon Murphy Brock apparently is no longer playing/touring with The GrandMothers. He's not pictured or referred to on their next tour schedule at all! :shock: (heads up from balint :wink: )

Haha Yeah I imagine the property values are taking another nosedive in that hood. What could a real estate agent say to try to spruce up the truth? This house has great curb appeal, is located near a school. and the neighbors tend to be quiet and mind their own business. As an added bonus, the basement is soundproof, maybe the former owner was a rock musician. :|

Man gets sick benefits for heavy metal addiction

A Swedish heavy metal fan has had his musical preferences officially classified as a disability. The results of a psychological analysis enable the metal lover to supplement his income with state benefits.
