Look out, they want your money, but the name thing is kinda fun!
Your First Name of: Laurie * Your name of Laurie gives you a very happy-go-lucky, spontaneous nature. * You see the humorous side of many situations and can laugh at yourself as well as at others.
Yup, I have to beat them to it!!
* This name gives you a musical, artistic nature and you would do well in any occupation in the entertainment field. * You have many friends because of your generous, happy nature, but if crossed you have a quick temper, although your annoyance does not last too long. * You do enjoy an argument and will at times say things just to get others going and then you sit back and enjoy the debate.
They don't have *me* pegged at all, do they? :-"
* You lack system and order and find it very difficult to budget and save money.
See above smart, self-deprecating remark.
* Although the name Laurie creates idealism and the urge to help others, we emphasize that it frustrates you through a scattered and emotional nature. * This name, when combined with the last name, can frustrate happiness, contentment, and success, as well as cause health weaknesses in the nervous system, liver, and bloodstream.
I'm thinking it's not really worth the $35 to get the bad news about my liver.

KABUL (Reuters) - Afghan police killed four protesters on Tuesday in some of the worst violence to erupt over satirical cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad which have provoked a deepening crisis between Europe and the Muslim world. Fresh protests erupted in the Middle East, Asia and Africa on Tuesday over the cartoons as leaders urged restraint and struggled to contain the protests, some of which in recent days turned from peaceful to volatile and bloody. In Iran, locked in a nuclear stand-off with the West and which has cut trade ties with Denmark where the cartoons were first published, a crowd pelted the Danish embassy in Tehran with petrol bombs and stones for a second day. After rioters set Danish missions ablaze in Syria and Lebanon at the weekend, the European Union presidency issued a strongly-worded warning to 19 countries across the Middle East that they are obliged to protect EU missions. Danish Foreign Minister Per Stig Moeller called his Iranian counterpart "and demanded in clear terms that Iran does all it can to protect the embassy and Danish lives," a spokesman said. Depicting the Prophet is prohibited by Islam but moderate Muslims, while condemning the cartoons, have expressed fears radicals are hijacking the affair which has developed into a clash over press freedom and religious respect. Militants in Iraq have called for the seizure and killing of Danes and the boycott of Danish goods over the cartoons, one of which depicts Mohammad wearing a turban resembling a bomb with a fizzing fuse. In London, there were placards demanding the beheading of those who insulted Islam. In a new twist, Iran's best-selling newspaper on Tuesday launched a competition to find the best Holocaust cartoon. Denmark said on Tuesday that the violent protests raised concerns for the safety of its troops in Iraq and Afghanistan but that it had no plans to withdraw them. British troops were ordered to the Afghan town of Maymana after crowds attacked a NATO base of Norwegian troops with guns and grenades and police opened fire bringing the protest death toll in the Middle East and Asia to nine. F-16 warplanes flew overhead in a show of force while the Norwegians fired tear gas, rubber bullets and warning shots, managing to restore order by early evening. Norway was the second country to publish the cartoons.
All this over some not-very-well-drawn CARTOONS????????????????? And this is NOT all about "dissing" Islam, either. This isn't all about religions and co-existence and everyone living happily ever after. These protesters are not just demanding that we respect Islamic rules and customs. They are demanding that we LIVE by them, and that's something completely different--as well as not very damned likely. UPDATE: InstaPunk and Dr. Sanity have some great thoughts on humor--or the lack thereof.

Women May Enjoy Humor More, if It's Funny Um...can we say "Doh" here?
Women were subjecting humor to more analysis with the aim of determining if it was indeed funny, Reiss said in a telephone interview. Men are using the same network in the brain, but less so, he said, men are less discriminating. "It doesn't take a lot of analytical machinery to think someone getting poked in the eye is funny," he commented when asked about humor like the Three Stooges.
I was going to ask if there was such a thing as UN-funny humor, but the mention of the Stooges answered that question!
