Wrestling Was Fake In 267 AD

According to LiveScience –

Who says only modern-day pro wrestling is fake? Researchers have deciphered a Greek document that shows an ancient wrestling match was fixed. The document, which has a date on it that corresponds to the year A.D. 267, is a contract between two teenagers who had reached the final bout of a prestigious series of games in Egypt. This is the first time that a written contract between two athletes to fix a match has been found from the ancient world.

ancient-wrestling-contract-s2The contract stipulates that Demetrius “when competing in the competition for the boy [wrestlers], to fall three times and yield,” and in return would receive “three thousand eight hundred drachmas of silver of old coinage …”

Jesus Bracelet – Can Someone Explain This?

I recently received a flyer in snail mail that is advertising the Jesus Bracelet. It would seem that it is the most powerful pain killing bracelet ever. Sure it’s a “magic” copper bracelet, add “magic” magnets for double the effectiveness – BUT WAIT – there’s more! Add the “magic” power of Jesus for even more healing POWER!

My question is, if any of these three “magic” healing solutions actually worked, why are the other two needed. If copper bracelets actually work – magnets and Jesus have nothing to do. If Jesus works, the magnets and copper have nothing to do. How gullible must a person be to buy this hokum?

Is There Anything That Magnets Can’t Do? Magnetic Panties For Sale

I noticed an ad in the Sunday paper and was taken aback. The ad is for panties which incorporate the magical powers of magnets. They make no claims as to what those supposed powers are, but they simply ask if you are one who believes. Does believing give the panties additional powers? What are these powers? Will these panties interfere with a cell phone carried in a pocket? Someone needs to investigate. I’d love to hear from someone who wore these panties through airport security.

Beware Of Scam At Home Depot

BEWARE OF SCAM AT HOME DEPOT

A ‘heads up’ for those men who may be regular Home Depot customers. This one caught me by surprise. Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don’t be naive enough to think it couldn’t happen to you or your friends.

hdHere’s how the scam works:

Two good-looking 20-21 year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your supplies into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is impossible not to look. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say ‘No’ and instead ask you for a ride to McDonalds. You agree and they get into the back seat. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.

I had my wallet stolen August 6th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th & 29th. Also September 1st & 4th, twice on the 8th, 10th, 13th, 16th & 19th, three times this morning and very likely again tomorrow.

P.S. Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for 2.99 each. I found cheaper ones for $1.99 at K-Mart and bought them out. Also, you never will get to eat at McDonalds. I’ve already lost 11 pounds just running back and forth to Home Depot.

Be careful out there.

Airforce 1 Photo-Op Scam

It is believed that tiny amounts can sell for millions of dollars, the Saudi Gazette reported.
