flame if you must, but

im really not that upset over michael jacksons death. yes, he died, its sad. but it kinda pisses me off that everyone is saying what a tragedy it is and how the world has lost a fantastic performing artist and blah blah blah...yea people, he was pretty awesome in that respect, but HE MOLESTED SMALL BOYS. "wasnt proved..." my ass - hes guilty and everybody knows it. dont let the fact that hes the "King of Pop" overshadow that. he was a pedophile and a pervert. he wasnt some wonderful human being. get over it. i think its more of a tragedy that farrah fawcett died. RIP farrah ♥

for anyone who thinks twilight is a little overrated and edward cullen is creepy

In pirate language, "splice the mainbrace" means to have a drink.

Anne Bonny was an Irish-American pirate who plied her trade in the Caribbean. The few records of Bonny which exist seem to reflect that she was intelligent, attractive, and quick-tempered. When she was 13, she supposedly stabbed a servant girl in the stomach with a table knife, although it is unclear whether this is fact or purely legend. She married a sailor and small-time pirate named James Bonny. According to legend, James Bonny hoped to win possession of his wife's family estate, but she was disowned by her father.
There is no evidence supporting the story that Anne Bonny started a fire on the plantation in retaliation, but it is known that sometime between 1714 and 1718 she and James Bonny moved to Nassau, on New Providence Island in the Bahamas, which was then a pirate hub and base for many pirate operations. It is also true that after the arrival of Governor Woodes Rogers in the summer of 1718, James Bonny became an informant for the governor.
While in the Bahamas, Anne Bonny began mingling with pirates at the local drinking establishments, and met the pirate John "Calico" Jack Rackham, with whom she had an affair. While Rackham and many other pirates were enjoying the King's pardon in the New Providence, James dragged Anne before Gov. Rogers to demand she be flogged for adultery and returned to him. There was even an offer for Rackham to buy her in a divorce-by-purchase, but Anne refused to be "bought and sold like cattle." She was sentenced to the flogging, but later Anne and Rackham escaped to live together as pirates.
In October 1720, Rackham and his crew were attacked by a sloop captained by Jonathan Barnet, who was working for the governor of Jamaica. Most of Rackham's pirates did not put up much resistance as many of them were too drunk to fight. However, Read and Bonny, who were sober, fought fiercely and managed to hold off Barnet's troops for a short time. After their capture, Rackham and his crew were sentenced by the Governor of Jamaica to be hanged. According to Johnson, Bonny's last words to the imprisoned Rackham were that "she was sorry to see him there, but if he had fought like a Man, he need not have been hang'd like a Dog." After their arrest and trial, Read and Bonny both pleaded their bellies, announcing during the sentencing phase that they were both pregnant. In accordance with English common law, both women received a temporary stay of execution until they gave birth. Read died in prison, most likely from a fever, though it has been alleged that she died during childbirth.
There is no historical record of Bonny's release or of her execution. This has fed speculation that her father ransomed her; that she might have returned to her husband, or even that she resumed a life of piracy under a new identity. However, the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography states that "Evidence provided by the descendants of Anne Bonny suggests that her father managed to secure her release from jail and bring her back to Charles Town, South Carolina, where she gave birth to Rackham's second child. On December 21, 1721 she married a local man, Joseph Burleigh, and they had eight children. She died in South Carolina, a respectable woman, at the age of eighty-two and was buried on April 25, 1782. This however is a complete supposition.

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! and through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

Former Skybus Employees Settle: Compensation to Average $1,800

June 2, 2009
Marla Matzer Rose--The Columbus Dispatch

Former Skybus Airlines employees will receive an average of about $1,800 each under a settlement of a lawsuit over the lack of notice that their jobs were being eliminated as the airline went out of business.

The settlement was approved last week by the bankruptcy court in the state of Delaware and marks the end of a class-action suit filed days after Skybus shut down.

It alleged that the Columbus-based airline violated the Workers Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, which requires companies to give 60 days' notice of mass layoffs, with limited exceptions.

In March, the two sides said they had agreed to settle the suit.

After several weeks of negotiation, the Skybus estate agreed to pay $925,000, about half of its estimated liability of $2 million. After paying $2,500 apiece to the two lead plaintiffs and $306,000 in fees to the plaintiffs' attorney, $613,333 will be distributed among the 342 former workers covered by the suit.

The amount received by each worker is based on the salary being received when the airline went out of business.

While most of the workers were rank and file, former Chief Executive Officer Bill Diffenderffer and President Ken Gile are among those listed as among the plaintiffs.

Skybus had contended that it didn't have to give notice, because it was covered by an exception for "faltering" companies that are actively seeking capital to avoid layoffs at the time of shutdown.

The plaintiffs disagreed, saying that "internal errors made by the defendant with respect to its cash needs and not discovered until shortly before" the shutdown was the cause of the layoffs.

"I'm pleased we were able to reach a settlement and get some money in the hands of these people," said James Huggett, the attorney for the former employees.

"They say a good settlement is one where the people on both sides of the table walk away a little unhappy. We didn't get everything we wanted, and neither did they."

Barry Barnard, Skybus' chief financial officer, who has been overseeing the wind-down of the company, could not be reached for comment.

The Skybus estate filed its modified plan of liquidation in March and has been dealing with ongoing claims disputes from several creditors. If the proceedings continue as planned, the case should wrap up in the next several months.
