The Importance of the Recap
First, you've heard of it, but would you want to live it? That's right: A Polish man visits a brothel only to find...his wife. Priceless.
Blogger Sugiero finds a northern Sweden swimming area that's allowing women to go topless, and the folks at HotAir say: "Three cheers for gender equality!" But Sugiero goes on to note the feminists' objections in the news article, and posits a situation for them. Allow me to lay out for you the finer details: the 32 year old daughter of a Lancashire imam ran away from home at age 16 to escape an arranged marriage, has moved 45 times since then under false pseudonyms, and has been in hiding since '94 when men armed with knives, axes and hammers attacked her home. You might ask, "Why? I'm missing context, aren't I?" Well, no you're not. Did the Imam father bit not tip you off? She recently got a text from her bro in which he absolved himself of responsibility in the event of her death. And she's surprised her family would follow the Qur'an, which demands the execution of apostates, to the letter. She shouldn't be: fully nine out of every 25 Muslims Brits aged 18-24 are all for apostate execution. Uh, feminists? HELLO?
Funny thing about Sharia. In a Saudi mall, a man who saw his wife receive a stranger's phone number immediately divorced her that very moment, by way of an awful loud microphone, and left the mall, his wife and kids by car that very second. Now in America, we have a high divorce rate compared to half a century ago, but the legal process prevents divorcees from announcing the decision without consultation and the signing of signatures. Here's a thought: Saudi Arabia, hot spot of the Hajj and of divorce!
In Germany, it appears, one has to be very careful about voicing one's opinions about workplace health. If you request a smoke-free environment, in some places, you get the boot!
For a change, some scientists have uncovered info that is both new and interesting. In this case, the group found that if earth were any smaller, its plate tectonics would be less active, indeed nearly inactive, and earth would not have been able to suport life. The result by consensus? Habitably-speaking, earth just barely squeaked by.
Ok, and something too good to let pass. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers built some sucky levees, so 489,000 claims have been filed against the Feds - a fraction of which adds up to 3 quadrillion dollars. Think about that. The U.S. GDP barely touches one quadrillion.
The MNF-I's campaign in Iraq, Operation Iraqi Freedom, was recently given a boost by the surge. And it seems that Operation Phanton Phoenix will encounter little resistance.
Some of you are probably paying close attention to the recent expose on Paul via the revelation of the content of some of his former "publications." Bryan Preston's got a good recap.
