Do you eat when you're not hungry?
Do you go on eating binges for no apparent reason?
Do you have feelings of guilt and remorse after overeating?
Do you give too much time and thought to food?
Do you look forward with pleasure and anticipation to the time when you can eat alone?
Do you plan these secret binges ahead of time?
Do you eat sensibly before others and make up for it alone?
Is your weight affecting the way you live your life?
Have you tried to diet for a week (or longer), only to fall short of your goal?
Do you resent others telling you to "use a little willpower" to stop overeating?
Despite evidence to the contrary, have you continued to assert that you can diet "on your own" whenever you wish?
Do you crave to eat at a definite time, day or night, other than mealtime?
Do you eat to escape from worries or trouble?
Have you ever been treated for obesity or a food-related condition?
Does your eating behavior make you or others unhappy?
Have you answered yes to three or more of these questions? If so, it is probable that you have or are well on your way to having a compulsive overeating problem. We have found that the way to arrest this progressive disease is to eat regularly like everyone else. After about six months of eating regularly like everyone else, you should be fine!
"Due to decreased revenue from ads and declining readership numbers, we are forced to apply for TARP funds to stay afloat", San-O Daze B.O.D. Puttzle said. "Without this funding, we will have to shut down".
San-O Daze, a no-frills blog about surfing, was founded by former Senator Al Gore in 1974 and is the oldest continuous surfing site on the internet. In it's heyday, over 6 million visitors accessed the site daily.
"We have tried everything we can think of to keep going, including bringing in additional contributors and changing our format, but none of that made it profitable", according to Puttzle.
Detractors point out that Puttzle has been indicted for embezzling funds from the company.
According to Sheriff Bob, lead investigator in the case, a former contributor known as "Popeye" is the likely culprit and charges against Puttzle should be dismissed later next week and an indictment handed down on Popeye.

Vigilantes took the black and white beast to the police saying it was an armed robber who had used black magic to transform himself into a goat to escape arrest after trying to steal a Mazda 323.
"The group of vigilante men came to report that while they were on patrol they saw some hoodlums attempting to rob a car. They pursued them. However one of them escaped while the other turned into a goat," Kwara state police spokesman Tunde Mohammed told Reuters by telephone.
"We cannot confirm the story, but the goat is in our custody. We cannot base our information on something mystical. It is something that has to be proved scientifically, that a human being turned into a goat," he said.
Belief in witchcraft is widespread in parts of Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation. Residents came to the police station to see the goat, photographed in one national newspaper on its knees next to a pile of straw.

Professional ukulele player Bill Tapia isn't slowing down anytime soon, and he's 101 years old. That's right – he's 101.
And he's still touring and playing live shows as if he were a 23-year-old rock star. "I feel 101 years young," he said.
Tapia started playing the ukulele when he was 7 and at age 10 he was playing for World War I Army and Navy soldiers for morale entertainment.
Two years later, Tapia was snatched up by vaudeville at age 12 and delighted audiences with his ukulele skills until he was 15. Then he tried his hand at performing on luxury passenger trips for three years.

To help us all better understand the difference between the guys at " Old Mans", "The Point Crew" and the "Boys at Four Doors" we turn to astrophysics.
Weakly interacting massive particles, the guys at Old Mans, or WIMPs, are hypothetical particles serving as one possible solution to the dark matter problem. These particles interact through the weak nuclear force and gravity, and possibly through other interactions no stronger than the weak force. Because they do not interact with electromagnetism they cannot be seen directly, and because they do not interact with the strong nuclear force they do not react strongly with atomic nuclei.
This combination of properties gives WIMPs many of the properties of neutrinos, save for being far more massive and therefore slower.
Massive astrophysical compact halo object, the Point Crew, the Boys at Four Doors, or MACHO, is a general name for any kind of astronomical body that might explain the apparent presence of dark matter in galaxy halos. A MACHO is a small chunk of normal baryonic matter, which emits little or no radiation and drifts through interstellar space unassociated with any solar system. Since MACHOs would not emit any light of their own, they would be very hard to detect. MACHOs may sometimes be black holes or neutron stars as well as brown dwarfs or unassociated planets. White dwarfs and very faint red dwarfs have also been proposed as candidate MACHOs.
I hope this gives all of you a better understanding of the guys that roost at San Onofre.
It was very helpful to me.

When you are surfing and your swim trunks accidentally come off, you're not hanging upside down from a ski lift, freezing, for fifteen minutes while every Tom, Dick, and Harry takes pictures - pictures that have already been posted to 4.7 million websites and reported by over 500 newspapers and television stations worldwide.
