The full retard

Advocates for people with intellectual disabilities are boycotting the movie 'Tropic Thunder' which opened this week, August 13. Outside some movie theatres, people carried signs calling the movie 'Tropic Blunder" and wore t-shirts saying 'Rally for Respect.'

They're offended by the movie's repeated use of the 'R'word....

The "R" word? Holy Christ, now we have to worry about the "R" word? Add it to the list with the "N" word and the "C" word. Personally I don't know how the good people at the CNR (Canadian National Railroad) are going to handle this?

They're also offended by the treatment of a character named 'Simple Jack' who has an intellectual disability. The character is played by Ben Stiller who also wrote the movie.

Here is the scene all the noise is over.

Big foot, or big hoax?

PALO ALTO, Calif. — Bigfoot lived in North Georgia, and his cousins are still there. That’s what a pair of Clayton County outdoorsmen claim as they released this picture of their find.

I don't know. That picture doesn't look like Val Kilmer at all.

But if they have definitive evidence to prove it, it wasn’t presented at a press conference here Friday where they had said they would make believers out of everyone. Dozens of mostly skeptical reporters showed up, lured by a flurry of interest in the story since pictures of the supposed discovery hit the Internet late last month.

Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer said a second round of DNA testing on what they claim is a dead 7-foot bigfoot they say they stumbled upon while hiking in June in North Georgia is still being completed.

That's better.

Teen wolf

Not yet, but give him a few more years.

An 11-year-old "werewolf" boy who desperately seeks a cure for his condition is baffling medical experts.

Pruthviraj Patil is one of 50 in the world who suffers from hypertrichosis, a rare genetic condition known as Werewolf Syndrome.

As a result his face and body is covered in thick, matted hair.

But he is hoping doctors will one day find a cure for his ailment.

Or ship him off to those Big Foot Hunter dudes. Hey you don't suppose?

Making my hairy potter invisible

Researchers have taken the next step on the road to constructing a cloak of invisibility or a powerful "superlens" capable of capturing fine details undetectable to current lenses. A group from the University of California, Berkeley, this week is publishing the first demonstrations of materials capable of bending visible or near-visible light the "wrong" way in three dimensions.

Yeah, yeah, yeah....just let me know when I can get one. Women's dorm here I come! Gigady gigady.....all right.
