Jihad mentioned on K5!? Oh noOOOOOO LALA MEMEM ME


BTW London was right about that study! I'm in real pain here!

London - F-word outbursts, for which celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is famous, can actually decrease the effect of pain, according to a new study.
The study, conducted by researchers at Keele University in Staffordshire, suggests that swearing may be a good recipe for coping with physical knocks.
The research team, led by Dr Richard Stephens, wondered whether swearing might have a psychological effect that increased pain tolerance.
To test the theory, they asked 66 volunteer students to submerge a hand into a tube of iced water for as long as possible while repeating a swear word of their choice.
At the beginning of the experiment, participants were asked for “five words you might use after hitting yourself on the thumb with a hammer”. They were told to use the first swear word on the list.
The study was then conducted again, but instead of swearing the students were asked to use one of “five words to describe a table”.
The researchers found that volunteers were able to keep their hands in the freezing water for significantly longer when they swore.
At the same time, their heart rates accelerated and their pain-perception, as measured with a questionnaire, reduced.
According to the researchers, swearing triggers a “fight-or-flight” response and heightens aggression.
“Everyday examples of aggressive swearing include the football manger who ‘psyches up’ players with expletive-laden team talks, or the drill sergeant barking orders interspersed with profanities,” the Scotsman quoted the authors as saying.
“Swearing in these contexts may serve to raise levels of aggression, downplaying feebleness in favour of a more pain-tolerant machismo,” they added.
“Our research shows one potential reason why swearing developed and why it persists,” the Scotsman quoted Stephens as saying.
The study has been published in the journal NeuroReport. (ANI)


Now for the NEWS:


Pacific North West

The FBI is investigating a man who spent a signifigant amount of time in Seattle from 1999-2000 for possible connections to the London bombings.
From the P-I:

British police have identified Haroon Rashid Aswat as a possible source of logistical, financial and technical support to the four bombers, according to media reports. The question for federal agents in Seattle is whether the man named by Scotland Yard is the same man as Aswat Haroon Rashid who, along with James Ujaama of Seattle, Semi Osman of Tacoma and al-Qaida colleague Oussama Abdullah Kassir set up the camp in Bly in south-central Oregon.
The Jihad camp in Bly was once home to a number of criminals known to London authorities. As the most recent thwarted attacks in London would suggest, the camp was said to not be on par with those in eastern Afghanistan.

From the LA Times in 2002:
Ultimately, authorities say, Ujaama's audacious proposal disintegrated into a kind of moujahedeen comic-opera. According to federal investigators, the Al Qaeda agents who ventured to Oregon complained of grossly inflated claims and abysmal conditions at the ranch. Apparently blaming Ujaama, the burly militant calling himself Bin Laden's hit man mused about killing the Seattle deal-maker.
"Ujaama basically saw this as a cash cow," said one federal official, referring to the proposed Oregon camp. But, he said, once the amateurish reality on the ground became clear, "No self-respecting international terrorist would have anything to do with" Ujaama's plan.
Ujamma was called James Thompson when he was born in Denver and was one of the founders of the Dar-us-Salaam mosque in Seattle's Central District. Abu Hamza (pictured) who was arrested in 2004 in London is said to be a large backer for the Bly camp.
