GI Janes: 232 nude photos of National Guard gals sent to Ky. newspaper

       1 comments


Hup, two, three, four! Women get naked for the war!

A Louisville, Ky. newspaper reported that it had received a disc containing 232 nude photos of women in a Kentucky National Guard unit. The women posed with their M-16s and other military equipment, authorities said. The disc containing the photos was sent to the Louisville Courier-Journal by an "anonymous" source.

"This is not the kind of activity condoned by the command leadership of the Kentucky National Guard," Lt. Col. Phil Miller, a spokesman for the Kentucky Guard, told the newspaper. The disc has been in the paper's possession at least since Aug. 19. The National Guard company, a quartermaster unit that provides logitics and supplies, shipped out for Iraq on Aug. 26 from Camp Shelby, Miss. Eleven women are in that unit.

The 232 photos appear to show at least a half-dozen nude and semi-nude women in various poses with military rifles and covering their breasts with American flag decals.

Lt. Col. Rich Steele, a spokesman for the First Army at Fort Gillem, Ga., said that if the allegations are proved, punishment could range from informal reprimands to courts-martial. He said an investigation is being conducted in Iraq.

This story has also been published on the Burning Taper.

Tongan beauty hasn't worn clothing for nearly 20 years

       2 comments


The Pagan Temple's Patrick has an eye for lovely women — of that there is no doubt.

Recently, he's outdone himself in finding a woman who sounds as lovely inside as she appears outside. Patrick recently wrote about Sonia-Belle, a 38-year old blogger who lives on the Pacific Island of Tonga. Sonia-Belle says she hasn't worn clothing since she was 20.

Sonia is an artist who cuts and pastes other works into collages. She lives in Tonga with her husband and two teen-age daughters. Or so the blog says.

My favorite part, other than the pictures of beautiful nude women, is the posting of comments and reviews she's received. Apparently, some surfers think she's fake, the product of some fat man's fantasy. Others dis her art as less than art. But others find her refreshing and quite real. Who knows? Who cares? Just enjoy....

Mona Lisa to give up her secrets

       3 comments


Later this week, scientists will present the findings of the most extensive three-dimensional scan ever done on the Mona Lisa.

The work, created by Leonardo da Vinci between 1503-1506, is the world's most famous painting.

In 2004, a comprehensive study of the work was begun, using special 3D technology developed by scientists from Canada's National Research Council (NRC).

Lesbians have more orgasms, study shows

       3 comments


The London Daily Mail reported today:
Women having lesbian sex are more likely to reach orgasm than those embarking on straight sex, according to a survey published today.

Researchers found that 76 per cent of women who slept with another woman reached orgasm, compared to only 69 per cent who slept with men.

The survey's findings appeared in the Journal of Sex Research.

The research was carried out in Australia, where 19,000 people took part. Researchers claimed that the reason behind the findings was that men were selfish and concentrated mostly on themselves.

Three quarters of women questioned by the three universities to carry out the research admitted their most recent sexual activity involved some form of "manual stimulation."

The Autumnal Equinox: Welcoming the Lord and Lady

       2 comments


Today is September 21, the Autumnal Equinox. (Yes, yes, I know... it's officially at 4:02 AM GMT on Sept. 23 this year, but I'm being a traditionalist here.)

Since websites all over the world take joy in publishing Masonic rituals, I thought I'd return the favor, sort of, by republishing an Autumnal Equinox Ritual. It's interesting how much similarity there is between Mason and Pagan ritual. The following is reprinted from the Indiana Pagan Resource Network. May you find meaning in it. Blessed be! — W.S.


Autumnal Equinox Ritual

In magick, it's easy to get caught up in "I want" or "I need", or even easier, "I didn't" or "I can't." There's nothing wrong with working towards our own needs; magick is for personal growth, and improving our environment is part of that. But it's also important to appreciate what we get and what we have. Even if you're not a very 'religious' pagan, taking time to think of what works in our lives helps us bolster our abilities to continue to develop and grow. And if you are religious, it's always a good idea to thank the Lord and Lady, not in any sort of subservient way but simply recognizing how very much our interaction with Them enriches our lives. In conjunction with the agricultural cycle, Autumn Equinox is the time of thanksgiving for a successful and abundant harvest. Here in Indiana, farmers may not actually be completely done with the harvest but by now the results are fairly evident and little can change them. The planning and worrying is over; now is the time to reap the results. The same holds true if you've been doing any sort of magickal project that follows the cycle of the seasons: you can now sit back and enjoy the results — it's time. Traditionally, this celebration was observed with a harvest feast that was a surfeit of luxury as a statement of faith — we are so certain we have the gifts we need that we can splurge a bit now, almost in defiance of the coming dark. Today, that is part of what we're doing with the food drive - we are stating that we have such abundance that we can afford to share, to give it to those whose harvest was less abundant than our own this year.

Mabon is also the Autumn Equinox, the balance between light and dark. As we give thanks for the abundance that the long days and strong power have given, we also take this moment to balance, to rest, to simply be, and prepare ourselves for the growing cold and dark. And to recognize and remember, as always, that what appears as death is merely the preparation for rebirth. That what is reaped at the harvest will become seed for the next year. And we remember the mystery — there is no death; all that dies will be reborn. And for this too, we give thanks.

Gathering In

Find the center point within you, the place where you feel 'together' and balanced. Sense that that point is connected to everyone else's balance point, and that of the Earth, the universe. And know that whatever method you use to sense this is just a tool; the end result is what counts, the feeling of relaxed tension, balanced focus. And know that where we are about to enter is truly Between the Worlds.

ALL: Hoof and horn, hoof and horn;
All that dies shall be reborn!
Corn and grain, corn and grain,
All that dies shall live again!

Priest and Priestess bless all after we enter:
We bless you with the smoke of autumn leaves on the Air and the Fire of fall bonfires.
We bless you with the Water of September rains and rich Earth yielding her harvest.
Welcome to the Circle; blessed be.

Creating Sacred Space

Casting the Circle


Join with me in creating this Circle as our sacred space, where we gather in love, joy and friendship; as a boundary between our everyday world and the realms of mystery and magick; as a shield against all stress and worry and care; as a sphere of protection to focus and contain the magick we create. And we bless and consecrate this space in the names of the Lord and Lady. So mote it be!

Calling the Quarters

EAST: As we turn to the East, and call to the winds,
We think of the gifts, the gifts the Air brings
Thanks for the bite of the autumn-chilled air,
Thanks for the wisdom from the winds of change…
(All continue with thanks as inspired)
Welcome, o Air of the East! Welcome the gifts that you bring.

SOUTH: As we turn to the South, and call to the flames,
We think of the gifts, the gifts the Fire brings.
Thanks for the power of will and desire;
Thanks for the warmth from an autumn bonfire…
(All continue with thanks as inspired)
Welcome, o Fire of the South! Welcome the gifts that you bring.

WEST: As we turn to the West, and call to the rains,
We think of the gifts, the gifts Water brings.
Thanks for the richness of cleansing and healing
Thanks for the new frost that wakens my feeling…
(All continue with thanks as inspired)
Welcome, o Water of the West! Welcome the gifts that you bring.

NORTH: As we turn to the North, and call to the stones,
We think of the gifts, the gifts that Earth brings.
Thanks for the harvest, the fruits of the Earth;
Thanks for deep sheltering seeds of rebirth…
(All continue with thanks as inspired)
Welcome, o Earth of the North! Welcome the gifts that you bring.

Priest and Priestess:
The Circle is cast; we are between the worlds.
In this place that is not a place,
in this time that is not a time,
with a willing suspension of disbelief,
we consider the possible,
explore the probable,
and question the truth.

Welcoming the Lord and Lady

Note: PLEASE put down your rituals. Remember, during the welcome, the Priestess and Priest draw down the Goddess and God, but so does every other person in the Circle, as we are all Goddess and God ourselves. Please mentally do your own welcomes with us!

Charge of the Goddess

Priest: Listen to the words of the Great Mother, who of old was called Isis, Freya, Danu, Cybele, Demeter, Kuan Yin, Lakshmi, Shekinah, and many other names:
Priestess: Whenever you have need of anything, once in the month, and better it be when the Moon is full, you shall gather in some secret place and adore the spirit of Me who am Queen of all the wise. Sing, feast, dance, make music and love, all in My presence, for Mine is the ecstasy of the spirit, and Mine also is joy on earth. For My law is love unto all beings. Mine is the secret that opens the door of youth, and Mine is the cup of wine of life that is the Cauldron of Ceridwen that is the holy grail of immortality. I give the knowledge of the spirit eternal and beyond death I give peace and freedom and reunion with those that have gone before. Nor do I demand aught of sacrifice, for behold, I am the Mother of all things and My love is poured upon the earth.

Priest: Hear the words of the Starry Lady, the dust of whose feet are the scattered stars, whose body encircles the Universe:

Priestess: I who am the beauty of the green earth, and the white Moon among the stars, and the mysteries of the waters, I call upon your soul to arise and come unto Me. For I am the soul of nature that gives life to the universe. From Me all things proceed and unto Me they shall return. Let My worship be in the heart that rejoices, for behold, all acts of love and pleasure are My rituals. Let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you. And you who seek to know Me, know that your seeking and yearning will avail you not unless you know the Mystery: for if that which you seek, you find not within yourself, you will never find it without. For behold, I have been with you from the beginning, and I am that which is attained at the end of desire.

Welcoming the Lady

Priestess: Lamplight glimmers in darkened rooms
And you fold your hands across a swelling belly
Cradling the fruits of your labor.
The rich scent of new-mown hay, the dark Earth beneath it
Where seeds that fall soon deeply sleep
Here as we move towards the darkness of Samhain
The shadow that brings the light of Yule
Teach us to be willing to pause for a moment
To reflect on the season of growth
The crisp bite of air and the comfort of firelight and shadow.
Demeter, Isis, Arienrhod, Inanna, Freya,
Mother of Shadows,
Welcome!

Charge of the God

Priestess: Hear the words of the God, he who is slain and reborn, the Summer King and Winter Child, the soul of mankind and the mirror in which mankind reflects:
Priest: I who am the glory of the Sun and the Lord of the dance, the ripe grain that is reaped and the seed which is sown, I call to you with the cry of a babe and the horn of the hunter. I am the soul of mankind, born to learn, live, love, die and be reborn. Drink of My vine, the blood of life, and lift a glass to My holy laughter echoing across the hills. But know that I am both harvester and harvest, the sacrificed One of sword, sickle and cross who descends into the womb of the Mother where all souls go to be reborn. For in this I reveal My mystery: that My dance is yours, My path is yours, and My laughter leads the way to the Summerland. For I am you and you are Me. And My light is with you always, to lead you through the shadows and back again.

Welcoming the Lord

Priest: Smoke hangs like haze over harvested fields
The gold of stubble, the brown of turned earth
And you walk under the red light of fall
The scent of fallen apples, the dust of threshed grain
The sharp, gentle chill of fall.
Here as we move into the shadows of autumn
The night that brings the morning of spring
Come to us, Lord of Harvest
Teach us to be thankful for the gifts you bring us
The bounty of your sacrifice
The warmth and the light of friends gathered around the bounty of the earth.
Dionysus, Osiris, Cernunnos, Dumuzi, Frey,
Lord of the grain,
Welcome!

Seasonal Celebration

Spend a moment to ground and center and feel our connection with the Earth and each other.

(Suggestion on how to ground and center: Find your center point, about three inches below your belly button. Focus on this point; feel yourself balance there. Now find the same center point of the Earth around you, and feel the power held there, the power of earthquakes and volcanoes and rich molten magma. Feel the connection between your center and that power like the roots of a tree, taking the power, pulling it higher, bringing it up your spine and through your body, flowing like a river, like sap rising in a tree. When the power reaches your brow, feel it burst forth like willow branches, out and down. Feel those branches intermingling with the branches of the person next to you; feel our energies flow and ebb together. Feel the power flowing through you like a circuit, returning to the earth beneath your feet, making a circle, making a circuit, returning, always returning, through and through. When the circle seems to flow naturally, continue.)

After this, take a moment to think of where you are in your life right now, what you are thankful for, where you have been given abundance. While you are thinking of this, everyone begins to chant quietly:

ALL: We harvest the seeds of rebirth… give thanks for the harvest of Earth.

When you feel right doing so, walk up to the cauldron, take a handful of seed, and if you wish call out "For ________ I give thanks: I harvest the seeds of rebirth!" (Please, keep the statement of thanks to two or three words, no more.)
Now, know that for as much as has been given us, as much as we have created for ourselves, we are capable of that much more, and the adventure lies in the fact that greater things are on their way, whether or no we can see them now. While holding the seeds, the chant increases, and leads into the next one:

ALL: We give thanks for unknown blessings already on the way;
We give thanks for unknown blessings already on the way;
We give thanks for unknown blessings already on the way!

(How to raise a cone: Focus on the feeling of power. Sense the power we together are raising. Does it have flavor? intensity? color? do you feel it inside you, like a tension? do you see it coalescing like a fog? do you hear harmony building, like an orchestra warming up? Use however works for you to sense it, but try your best to sense it however you can. Feel your own power, however you sense it within you; feel the power of the person next to you - is it different? similar? how does it blend with yours? how can you make your own harmonize with it? And feel the power of the group, how it is similar or different from your own, how you can adjust yours to make it in tune with the group, be a complimentary color, feel at the same level. Concentrate, and know that the power we are raising is building up, synergizing, becoming more than any one of us could create alone, becoming more than simply the sum of all of our energies, creating a symphony, creating a painting, creating the tension of excitement and power within and without, feeling it build, build, build... and at the peak when you feel that neither you nor the Circle can hold any more, hold the power for just one moment, make sure that everyone else is at the same point you are, then release, send it forth, know that it is arrowing to the mark, that it will move to enflame your vision, empower your visualization. That which you created in your mind will be. Know this, like you know the sun will rise tomorrow, like you know who you are.)

At the peak of the power, we throw the seeds into the air, knowing that we send out this harvest to seed the next!

Then relax, and let the excess energy drain off into the Mother, who has room in abundance for all that you can't hold. Slowly let your own flows ebb back to normal. Find the center point within you, the place where you feel 'together' and balanced. Sense that that point is connected to everyone else's balance point, and that of the Earth, the universe. And know you just made magick!)

Feasting and Fellowship

We direct our attention to the results of the food drive, and bless it along with the bread we share with each other:
ALL: (to the tune of 'All Good Gifts' from Godspell)
We plow the fields and scatter She sends the snows in winter,
The good seed on the land, The warmth to swell the grain,
But it is fed and watered The seedtime and the harvest
By Her abundant hand. And summer's gentle rain

CHORUS: All good gifts around us
Have come from our Mother Earth,
Then thank Her now, O thank Her now,
With love and joy and mirth...

We thank You then, O Mother, No sacrifice You ask for,
For all things bright and good, For all Your love imparts,
The seedtime and the harvest, For You are our great Mother,
Our life, our health, our food. Your love is in our hearts. (to chorus)

Pass the cup and bread; feel the grounding of the bread, and the fellowship of the cup.
"May you never hunger." "May you never thirst."

Closing the Circle

Priest and Priestess: Lady of shadows and Lord of the grain,
We thank you for your presence with us today,
Knowing you are with us always.
Hail and farewell! Blessed be.

EAST: Who returns, returns to the East?
The air, the air, goes with our thanks
For waking our Circle with wisdom and knowledge.
Hail and farewell! Blessed be.
SOUTH: Who returns, returns to the South?
The fire, the fire, goes with our thanks
For kindling our Circle with power and courage.
Hail and farewell! Blessed be.
WEST: Who returns, returns to the West?
The water, the water, goes with our thanks
For washing our Circle with hope and with love.
Hail and farewell! Blessed be
NORTH: Who returns, returns to the North?
The earth, the earth, goes with our thanks
For firming our Circle with roots and foundation.
Hail and farewell! Blessed be.

ALL: The circle is open, but unbroken.
May the peace of the Goddess
and the love of the God
go in our hearts.
Merry meet, and merry part, and merry meet again!
Blessed be, and divine do!
1... 2... 3... It's a Circle!

Kinky X-rated font used on elementary school open-house handouts

       0 comments


There's no doubt that Eris is now in charge of the goings-on in this solar system.

An elementary school teacher in Monroe, N.Y., handed out a packet of spelling words to 3rd-graders' parents recently written in a pornographic font. Several teachers and administrators had seen the info-packet and approved it.

Supposedly, the artwork of male and female stick figures in various sexual positions to form the letters of the alphabet were missed by all the school employees, including the teacher who created it, as well as by many parents.

"This packet was reviewed by a number of people, including myself," Pine Tree Elementary School principal Jean Maxson wrote in a letter of apology sent to parents. "I take full responsibility for this inappropriate publication."

"It was very unintentional. No one did this on purpose," Superintendent Joseph DiLorenzo told reporters. "It was missed. It was a mistake."

A mistake? Or Act of Eris?

Actress poses nude for PETA's anti-fur campaign

       3 comments


Actress Sadie Frost has unveiled her naked portrait as she launched an anti-fur campaign in central London.

The celebrity bared her bottom for an advert for animal rights organisation Peta as London's Fashion Week got under way.

Frost, 41, a strict vegetarian, posed with her naked image in Covent Garden.

The advert was shot by rock star Bryan Adams and features the actress-turned-fashion designer peering provocatively over her shoulder next to the tag line: "Turn Your Back On Fur".

The actress said: "Peta's anti-fur campaign is basically about turning your back on fur.

"Through doing the naked photo, people will hopefully stop and look at the campaign."

Commenting on the photo shoot, she said: "I was definitely a bit nervous on the day but if you are around people you trust it's nice. It's also a nice thing for every woman to have and it's something they should have done at some time in their life."

But the mother-of-four, who co-owns the fashion label frostfrench with childhood friend Jemima French, confessed to working out before posing for the picture.

"I was doing six months of exercises before the picture was taken. I was doing trapeze work, rock climbing, every known exercise to get a pert bottom."

Commenting on her friend, Kate Moss, who is reportedly a fur wearer, Frost said: "I don't think it's my job to preach. She knows a lot of facts and she can wear what she wants to wear. I'm a veggie and she's not. You can't preach to people or bully them."

Where's the crime?

       4 comments


Help me out here, will you?

A woman was convicted of disorderly conduct for asking a convenience store clerk to heat up in the store's microwave oven a fake plastic penis containing urine. The clerk, thinking it was a real severed penis, called the cops.

Read the story, and see if you can spot the crime. I can't. While it's certainly a strange request, I don't see a crime.

Science recognizes the Goddess! Hail Eris! No hot dog buns!

       0 comments


In honor of Eris, newest member of our Solar System, we offer the following pages from Principia Discordia, or How I Found Goddess and What I Did to Her When I Found Her. No hot dog buns.

GP: Is Eris true?
M2: Everything is true.
GP: Even false things?
M2: Even false things are true.
GP: How can that be?
M2: I don't know man, I didn't do it.


THE MYTH OF THE APPLE OF DISCORD

It seems that Zeus was preparing a wedding banquet for Peleus and Thetis and did not want to invite Eris because of Her reputation as a trouble maker.*

This made Eris angry, and so She fashioned an apple of pure gold** and inscribed upon it KALLISTI ("To The Prettiest One") and on the day of the fete She rolled it into the banquet hall and then left to be alone and joyously partake of a hot dog.

Now, three of the invited goddesses,*** Athena, Hera, and Aphrodite, each immediately claimed it to belong to herself because of the inscription. And they started fighting, and they started throwing punch all over the place and everything.

Finally Zeus calmed things down and declared that an arbitrator must be selected, which was a reasonable suggestion, and all agreed. He sent them to a shepherd of Troy, whose name was Paris because his mother had had a lot of gaul and had married a Frenchman; but each of the sneaky goddesses tried to outwit the others by going early and offering a bribe to Paris.

Athena offered him Heroic War Victories, Hera offered him Great Wealth, and Aphrodite offered him the Most Beautiful Woman on Earth. Being a healthy young Trojan lad, Paris promptly accepted Aphrodite's bribe and she got the apple and he got screwed.

As she had promised, she maneuvered earthly happenings so that Paris could have Helen (the Helen) then living with her husband Menelaus, King of Sparta. Anyway, everyone knows that the Trojan War followed when Sparta demanded their Queen back and that the Trojan War is said to be The First War among men.

And so we suffer because of the Original Snub. And so a Discordian is to partake of No Hot Dog Buns.

Do you believe that?
________________

* This is called THE DOCTRINE OF THE ORIGINAL SNUB
** There is historic disagreement concerning whether this apple was of metallic gold or acapulco.
*** Actually there were five goddesses, but the Greeks did not know the Law of Fives.


What We Know About ERIS (not much)

The Romans left a likeness of Her for posterity--She was shown as a grotesque woman with a pale and ghastly look, Her eyes afire, Her garment ripped and torn, and as concealing a dagger in Her Bosom. Actually, most women look pale and ghastly when concealing a chilly dagger in their bosoms.

Her geneology is from the Greeks and is utterly confused. Either She was the twin of Ares and the daughter of Zeus and Hera; or She was the daughter of Nyx, goddess of night (who was either the daughter or wife of Chaos, or both), and Nyx's brother, Erebus, and whose brothers and sisters include Death, Doom, Mockery, and Friendship. And that She begat Forgetfullness, Quarrels, Lies, and a bunch of gods and goddesses like that.

One day Mal-2 consulted his Pineal Gland* and asked Eris if She really created all of those terrible things. She told him that She had always liked the Old Greeks, but that they cannot be trusted with historic matters. "They were," She added, "victims of indigestion, you know."

Suffice it to say that Eris is not hateful or malicious. But She is mischievous, and does get a little bitchy at times.

*THE PINEAL GLAND is where each and every one of us can talk to Eris. If you have trouble activating your Pineal, then try the appendix which does almost as well. Reference: DOGMA I, METAPHYSICS #3, "The Indoctrine of the Pineal Gland"

Hail Eris! All Hail Discordia!

       0 comments


The dwarf planet that led to Pluto's recent cosmic demotion has been given a name.

The International Astronomical Union has decided to call the small, icy body on the outskirts of our solar system 136199 Eris, or just Eris for short.

The discovery of Eris last year, and its striking similarity to Pluto, forced renewed talks on what constitutes a planet. Last month, the Union downgraded Pluto to dwarf status, prompting an outcry from sentimentalists.

The Union acknowledges Eris' controversial role. The name honors the Greek goddess of discord and strife, who provokes jealousy and fighting among men.

Eris’ moon has been named Dysnomia after the Daimon spirit of lawlessness, who was also the daughter of Eris.

Eris had been going by the designation of 2003 UB313 until receiving its official name, but its discoverers had informally dubbed it Xena.

Woshipping Aphrodite, Goddess of Life

       1 comments


Our pagan pal Patrick at the Pagan Temple writes about the artist Galleleo's image of Aphrodite, goddess of love.

"If you are the kind who can easily achieve a semi-trance state," Patrick writes, "it would be a relatively simple matter to meditate upon the goddess... to reach a point of meditation which you can go back to, again and again. You might find yourself becoming more and more attached to the goddess, and find yourself turning more and more to her. Once you get to know her well, it would not be at all innappropriate to indulge in the ritual I have developed for the worship of and attunement with Aphrodite."

The "ritual," Patrick explained in an article last year, to invoke Aphrodite is oral sex. He wrote:
Yeah, I know, to some people, that sounds downright disrespectful, maybe even sacreligious. After all, this is a goddess we are talking aobut, right? Well, first, you need to get out of that monothestic Christian mind-set. The deities are not out to denigrate or degrade us. They have their likes and dislikes, and their everyday pleasures and pasttimes, and it's only a matter of finding out the ones that are appropriate to them. There are, in most branches of paganism, certain deities that are extremely sexual oriented, and there is to them no shame in this.

With this in mind, for a man to invoke the goddess is quite a simple porocess. The setting is everything. A nicely decorated room, dark with pink and/or violet candles and flowers, wafting incense of patchouli, sandlewood, or lavender. Speaking of of lavender, a nice warm essential oil of lavender and cinnamon mixed evenly, perhaps with a drop or two of ylang ylang, added to a couple of ounces of heated olive oil. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, you might want to add a bowl of rice. If you want to really be extravagant, make it a bowl of rice pudding, with plump juicey raisins. Arrange the bouquet of flowers, the candles, incense, oils, etc., along with maybe a bottle of wine, and you are ready to go. All you need then is a comfortable mat, and one more thing — the goddess.

Now, of course, you are not going to physicaly acquire the goddess. Or are you? After all, the deities are in-dwelling, in us all. So, you know a woman.... Don't be concerned that she may be a Christian woman, or a non-pagan. The deities dwell in us all, including non-pagans. Just the same, she doesn't necessarilly have to know what you are up to, as far as you using her for a surrogate substitute for the goddess. And that is what you are going to do, use her as a vessel to invoke the goddess Aphrodite. First, by massaging the oil all over her body, as sensously as you can. Silently invoke the aid of the goddess; allow her to guide you in your endeavors.

Then, begin the oral stimulation. You will know you have suceeded when you hear her crying out in ecstasy. Especially, if she says "Oh, God!" But you shouldn't get the big head over this. Remember, this is a method of servicing the needs of the goddess, not of pursuing your own lusts, of satisfying your own desires. Put the needs of the goddess first and foremost, and you will be rewarded accordingly (though this should not be your goal or intent).
Happy Goddess-worshipping!

Police chief's job in jeopardy Police chief resigns over wife's porn photos; mayor, councilman resign, too

       2 comments


Snyder, Oklahoma's Police Chief Tod Ozmun is known locally as Mr. Law and Order. His wife Doris is known worldwide for her work as a plus-sized model on a pornographic Web site.

Snyder's mayor, Dale Moore, is up in arms because certain residents have their panties in a wad, KIRO-TV reports.

"This came to light because some of the people in town went onto the Internet to download pictures of her and started passing them out around the citizens here in town," said Mayor Dale Moore. "He's done more drug arrests, solved more crimes than anybody else in town has ever done," Moore said.

Resident Bryan Norton said he wants the chief fired. Resorting to that ridiculously clichéd measure of what's right and what's not — the old "what about the chiiiilllll-dren" whine — do-gooder Norton rhetorically asks, "When our kids come home from school telling us that the chief's wife is a porno queen, how do you answer that?"

You answer it like this, Bryan: "So what?"

UPDATE — Mon., Sept. 11, 2006: Today it was reported that on Friday Chief of Police Tod Ozmun, Mayor Dale Moore and City Councilman Clifford Barnard resigned their offices in Snyder, Oklahoma.

Former mayors Shirley and Billy Ray Anderson were gleeful. Shirley served as mayor of Snyder for five years in the 1990s, and Billy Ray was mayor for eight years.

"They have no morals as far as I'm concerned," said Shirley. "That's the whole thing I think — morals. You should have respectable people in office [click here for a list of American politicians convicted of crimes while in office]. They need to go somewhere else where this is accepted."

There just has to be a lot more to this story than is being told.

Final in-car JFK assassination witness Nellie Connally dies at age 87

       0 comments


Nellie Connally, the last survivor who was in the limosine when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, died Saturday at age 87, CBS News reported. Mrs. Connally was the widow of former Gov. John Connally, who was wounded during the 1963 shooting.

In 2003, Mrs. Connally was interviewed by a CBS-affiliate reporter:
"The weather was beautiful, and the young president stepped off plane and people were ecstatic. We hopped in the car and took off for the parade. I was nervous because I wanted Dallas to be so good to them and I wanted them to be so good to Dallas," Connally told Maggio.

"And they were loving it - and I couldn't restrain myself any longer, and I turned around and said, 'Mr. President, you can't say Dallas doesn't love you' — and he grinned that wonderful grin he had — and it was just a few seconds — and I heard this loud noise."

The gunfire killed Kennedy and struck her husband.

"I looked back quickly," she continued, "and he had blood up to his neck, and he sort of sunk down in his seat. He said nothing. No expression — strange look in his eyes."

She was unsure what had happened.

"John," she explained, "who was sitting in front of him and was a hunter — knew it was a gunshot. He turned to his right, and he couldn't see him, so he whirled to his left — couldn't see him — and on his way back — the second shot came and hit John Connally — he said, 'My God, they are going to kill us all.'"
A stabilized endless-loop of the Zapruder film showing the Kennedy assassination is now available online.

Many people, of course, believe the Zapruder film as it appears today has been substantially doctored and is a hoax.
