Hatoyama Miyuki, the wife Japan's new Prime Minister, says she traveled to Venus in a dream:
"While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO and went to Venus. It was a very beautiful place and it was really green." Mrs Hatoyama, who is renowned for her healthy cooking having published several food-related books, described her UFO experience in a book called "Very Strange Things I've Encountered." ... Earlier this year, Mrs Hatoyama also told a TV programme that she had met Tom Cruise in a previous life.Yes, Tom Cruise is definitely strange. As for the green color of Venus, I wonder whether it may have been a lead salt, such as pyromorphite, or an olivine, which would still be solid at Venus's 800 degree F. surface temperatures.
Also: Sen. Charles Schumer [D-NY] proposes that the SEC be funded by fees on the institutions it regulates.
So, we're going to make a watchdog agency financially dependent on the companies it's supposed to police? Oh, that'll work. No chance for a conflict of interest there, nosiree.
Charles Schumer: as usual, lacking the brains that God gave a truffle.
