Recurring Decimals…..

Everything here is irrelevant

Bizarre thought processes……

The world is full of morons. The fact by itself is undisputed. But citing occassional examples to remind ourselves is worth the effort. Two examples here.

In Israel, some MPs are blaming recent earthquakes in their country on the gays:

An Israeli parliamentarian says that several earthquakes felt in Israel recently were a consequence of gays and the parliament’s acceptance of them.

Shlomo Benizri of the ultra-Orthodox Jewish Shas Party, said the way to stop the tremors was for parliament to reverse its trend of liberalising laws concerning homosexuals. (link)

And in the cauldron of mounting absurdity that is the US elections, Lisa Schiffren tries to convince everyone that Barack Obama is the love-child of a communist conspiracy to infiltrate US.

the questions which might arise about how Senator Obama’s mother, from Kansas, came to marry an African graduate student. Love? Sure, why not? But what else was going on around them that made it feasible? Before readers level cheap accusations of racism — let’s recall that the very question of interracial marriage only became a big issue later in the 1960s. The notion of a large group of mixed race Americans became an issue during and after the Vietnam War. Even the civil-rights movement kept this culturally explosive matter at arm’s distance. (link)

Its a conspiracy theory Frederick Forsyth would have been proud of.  Deservedly fisked here.
