Greetings fellow Bizarros:
"And whosoever is not found written in the book of life will be cast into the lake of fire. And in that place there will be a great weeping and gnashing of teeth."
Those are not just pretty words. That is what the Bible tells us will happen at the end of days, when the messiah comes again to judge mankind for their sins.
But that's just fanciful fiction, right? Even true believers know there are specific signs and portents that must happen before Judgment Day. Signs like; earthquakes, floods, famines and plagues. Plus, other, less disastrous signs, like the third temple being built in Jerusalem. And before that happens a perfectly red, unblemished heifer must be born and sacrificed.
A perfectly red, unblemished heifer just like the one that was born this summer in Israel.
A red heifer born in Israel last month is being closely examined by The Temple Institute, a religious organization based in Jerusalem, after it has been claimed the animal could fulfill a prophecy in the Jewish and Christian holy books.
It is said the sacrifice of a red heifer is essential for the construction of a third temple in Jerusalem, which some theologians have claimed could bring about the return of the messiah and Judgment Day.
Rabbi Chaim Richman, the international director of the Temple Institute, claims there has been perfect no red heifer for the past 2,000 years.
Rabbi Richman said, "We cannot help but wonder and pray: If there are now red heifers, is ours the era that will need them?"

*------------ That's a Lot of Meat ------------*
It's called 'shrinkage'. People lift things from their workplace. You might take home a pen from the office, or a pack of sticky notes. If there is an overstocked product or a sample lying around it might find its way into your bag. But one employee at an Ohio supermarket got a little carried away with her liberal attitude toward company property. The Giant Eagle chain reported that the 36-year-old suspect has helped herself to over $9,000 worth of meat from the deli counter over the last few years. That's a lot of salami! A tipster reported that the employee was helping herself daily. Well, who has time for lunch these days? When questioned, the employee reportedly confessed to the deli meat pilferage, "but did not wish to give a statement."
*----- Rat Pulls Fire Alarm in D.C. Condo ------*
The rats in Washington D.C. are getting more aggressive. And it's not the rats on Capitol Hill. Security camera footage from inside a Washington, D.C., condo building revealed who pulled the fire alarm that spurred an evacuation -- a rat. A video recorded inside the condominium building shows a rat jumping from a handrail to the fire alarm, which is triggered by the rodent's weight. The alarm prompted an evacuation of the building, which was not on fire.
*-------------- READER COMMENTS --------------*
I think it's just a good thing that dwarf's dream is to be a chef instead of a professional basketball player.
I think the dwarf would make a hell of a short order cook. And I hear he makes great shortbread cookies, and his strawberry shortcake is terrific!
Lewis, my question is; how do you fence 7,000 bugs and spiders? I mean, people will steal anything of value. The really bizarre part of this story is who is buying it.
