Nooz, Of The Bizarre And Odd

Strange things are afoot at the Circle K, Ted.

130-Year-Old Chinese Fire Put Out - A fire that broke out more than 100 years ago at a Chinese coalfield has finally been extinguished, reports say. In the last four years, firefighters have spent $12m in efforts to put out the flames at Liuhuanggou colliery, near Urumqi in Xinjiang province, which local historians say started around 1874. Now, THAT'S what I call a CAMPFIRE!

Jewish? Need Someone To Make Sure Your Appliances Are Kosher? - Yes, this guy works with appliance companies to make sure that they are kosher, and compliant with the Sabbath rules of what a Jew cannot do from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday. Yeesh, you gotta be a seriously hardcore Jew to need a fridge with a 'kosher' setting, to make sure the light doesn't come on, displays are blank, etc., for that 24 hours. Personally, it just strengthens my thoughts that organized religion in general is FUCKED.

More Idiots In The News

Oh, this one's just typical, really.

Conservative groups are protesting this week's opening of the film "Kinsey," denouncing it as propaganda seeking to glorify the researcher whom they blame for inspiring the sexual revolution.

Ex-squeeze me?

My favourite line: "Alfred Kinsey is responsible in part for my generation being forced to deal face-to-face with the devastating consequences of sexually transmitted diseases, pornography and abortion," said Brandi Swindell, head of a college-oriented group called Generation Life that plans to picket theaters showing the film. Yeah, absolutely, Brandi, because, after all, if Kinsey (and associates) hadn't done all the research and published his scientific report on sexuality, you wouldn't have to face disease. Dig it, doll, disease is a reality, and you'd have to face it with or without Kinsey's research.

The other line that I thought was just as misguided, if not more so, was this one: "Instead of being lionized, Kinsey's proper place is with Nazi Dr. Josef Mengele or your average Hollywood horror flick mad scientist," said Robert Knight, director of Concerned Women of America's Culture & Family Institute. Yee-ah, Bob, way to compare: one was a researcher into human sexuality, and the other was the Third Reich's Angel of Death. They obviously belong in the same category.

Once again, the Ultra-Conservative Right has set aside this time to look like a bunch of complete mongoloids in public. It's always sad to see a group of coordinated and motivated people, wasting their time being jackasses. I mean, come on, i get bored too, but I can usually find SOMETHING better to do. Sure will be a nice day when these wackos realize that just because they are CALLED "the right", doesn't mean they ARE "right".

Hey, Brandi? Fuck you.
