Comment: Valiant Thor was an individual who supposedly appeared to two
Alexandria police,1957? and was consequently interviewed by the senate. He
purported to be from VENUS!!

I cannot find further information that debunks him as a fraud. Any
information on this?

My oh my. You mean there's someone other than John F. Winston who believes in the Valiant Thor silliness?

If there is one case of parallelism which seems to involve plagiarism it would have to be the similarities between the messages of the alien in the notorious Plan Nine from Outer Space and the message of Valiant Thor of Venus as presented in the 1967 book Stranger at the Pentagon. I must say, however, I cannot believe anyone would have the chutzpah to consciously model their story on material from that monumentally bad film. It could be coincidence!
[lol]
Anyway, here a photo of "Val" (right) with his homies Jill and Donn from Venus:  -

The surface temperature of Venus is a balmy 460°C (about 865°F). Lead melts at 327.5°C (621.5°F). I doubt huminoids could exist at that temperature.

You would think that would put an end to this nonsense but, unfortunately, for the true believers it has had no effect. I have read hundreds of Usenet posts by John Winston over the years and he fully understands the truly hellish conditions of Venus but he still believes human-like beings live there. Still, I continue reading his stuff because his worldview is so different from mine and he makes laugh with great sense of humor.

died are from California. Just goes to show how stupid people really are
in California. Oh well, less idiots in the world, they did us all a favor!

Let's all hope whoever wrote this moves to California, then. Less idiots indeed.

Comment: So a 21 year old here is claiming that cigarette smoke, if blown
directly into the ear, will "cure" an ear infection.

I haven't found anything online that confirms this and it sounds like
she's the one who's blowing smoke.

Try this:

Get a friend to blow cigarette smoke into your left ear. When it comes out of your right ear you will have been cured. (You'll die of cancer instead, though.)

Comment: My friend passed this article along to me. I wonder if it's true.

CNN -
Woman Dies from thinking she was Dead
Coroners came back today with a report on a woman who supposedly
frightened herself to death. The woman, a Mrs. Jane Tally of Austin, TX,
had died of a sudden cardiac arrest that was not consistent with a heart
attack.
Lawmen would be stumped if not for the note she left before dying. It read
to the effect that she had put her finger on her pulse and, finding none,
assumed that she was dead.
Mrs. Tally, believing herself to be dead, went into a state of shock and
stopped her heart.

Comment: About pancake mix. I once opened a box of pancake/waffle mix.
It was previously unopened. The mix was crawling with tiny little
wormies. I searched the box for an expiration date and found no date of
any kind to tell me how old the mix was. What do you think?

The pancake mix is old and bad. Throw it out. If the wormies are moving they should still be good. Keep them.

Comment: re college;
it is a fact that not one university [excluding a millitary
school] has ever refused admission to a jr or sr.

thus, one can get into any school of their choice IF THEY
are willing to apply for their upper division years.
