Frosty Old England

Another unexpected outcome of global warming; Europe could freeze over in a matter of decades. Global warming could plunge Britain into new ice age within decades, claims research. Seems that the heating of tropical waters by global warming could cause the Gulf Stream to collapse, ending the warm and temperate climate Europe enjoys. Once that happens, Western Europe could quickly come to resemble Labrador, a frosty, treeless tundra with long bitter winters.

It’s a good thing George W. Bush told us that global warming doesn’t exist. For a moment there I was almost tempted to believe trained scientists who have spent a lifetime studying this so called phenomenon. I bet they feel pretty silly now.

Woman’s Skin Falls Off, Miraculously Lives

Christ, this is just unbelievable. A woman started taking an antibiotic for a sinus infection, but she developed an allergic reaction to the Bactrim that caused all her skin to slough off, all of it. Every square inch of skin on her body and the internal lining of her organs. Sweet Jesus. Doctors called her reaction an extremely rare condition called TEN – toxic epidermal necrolysis. Apparently this condition is almost always fatal (duh!) but she miraculously lived. Sheesh.
