Wowie! I'm not going to post it here (since snopes nicely blocked the commenter's personal info), but suggest you try searching for some of the unique phrases in that comment, and throw in "Casey Kasem" -- this person needs serious medication, or at least a less-porous tinfoil hat.

Yes, but it was Louie, not Neil.

Thousands of Disneyland guests did it in 1955, and you don't see them getting any glory... do you?

I thought it was Lance. Those performance enhancement drugs can do strange, strange things.

Comment: Has Nancy Pelosi or any other politician ever said that those who
do not have health insurance will be forced to build concentration camps
and then forced to live in the camps that they've built?

Yes, she said it, but she didn't mean it.

She and Boehner were quite drunk at the time. She also bet him Boehner couldn't get his guys to vote to repeal Obamacare 50 times before 2014. He won that bet.

quite place in then be transmitting to Obama brainwave database back into
their head. can we look at any celebrity or politicians head and get all
of their ideas, stock tips, show ideas, personal information, pass codes

then ask question in head and listen for answer in your head.

Comment: i recently read that Admiral Byrd visited the South Pole in
~1946. A battle with alien space craft ensued. The aliens live in
subterranean earth. He was told to never return with weapons. True?

Uncle Henry, if we've told you once we've told you a thousand times, it's ONE red pill, TWO green pills and TWO blue pills (or three if you're constipated).

Your loving nephew,

I once saw green men, and I'm sure the nine beers and two-thirds of a bottle of Rumple Minze had nothing to do with it.

United States

Comment:
I have researched buildings and history for the past 50 yrs. All
buildings that followed linear architecture (rectangular buildings on
rectangular lots with picket fences or compound walls on straight roads)
are successful and prosperous all over the world. The U.S.A. and CANADA
are the only two countries in the world that followed linear architecture
for several decades and they became very successful countries in the
world.

Please visit my website to find the features
of good luck buildings. Most of the successful buildings in the world
have a majority of these features. Please reintroduce the linear
architecture to U.S.A and CANADA to maintain their greatness in this
world. Take a look at our county court houses in every state, and they
are all good luck buildings. Take a look at Pentagon, it was built during
World War II and America did not win a single war after-- World War II
ended with the Cold War, Korean War is not solved, Vietnam war was a great
loss, Iraq and Afghani wars are in a limbo and the American army will not
win a war as long as the Pentagon is the American military headquarters.
I advise Americans to move the military head quarters to a rectangular
building and covert the Pentagon to a federal prison.

Now look at General Motors (GM), it was a great success when it was run
from the old head quarters. Now it is run from Renaissance Center and it
will never be successful. Independence Hall in Philadelphia, a very good
luck building. Marshall Space Center in Huntsville, Alabama and the
governor's mansion in Williamsburg, VA are also great buildings. They
have all the features as described on my website. The Watergate building,
it is a very bad luck building. The 9/11 Memorial is a very bad luck
building. The new CDC building in Atlanta is also a very bad luck
building. Don't forget the Enron corporations downfall and pearl harbor.
All buildings built on golf courses are all bad luck buildings.The
American embassy in Bagdad is a vey,very,very bad luck building.

By using linear architecture, the U.S.A can become a greater success.

The original World Trade Center buildings were build very linearly, and look how that turned out.

Quote:
“As Van Halen’s creative direction became uncertain in the early 1980s, it became increasingly apparent that we would have to take the steps necessary to remove Roth from power,” said former Deputy Director of Central Intelligence John N. McMahon, describing the covert process by which he and his colleagues quietly forced a schism between the vocalist and members of the band’s inner circle in order to disrupt the dangerous cult of personality that had taken hold around the hard-rock frontman. “Well before the commencement of the Hide Your Sheep Tour, Roth had become too unpredictable, too brazen, and he was preventing the band’s sound from moving toward synthesizer-driven, radio-friendly rock. So, we felt we needed to act, and quickly.”

Ah. Of course. It all makes perfect sense now.
