More stone age society news

Fishermen in Bangladesh beat a rare river dolphin to death because they'd never seen an animal like that before.

Scientists believe that hydrogen is numero uno but I've always maintained that stupidity is really the most common element in the universe. Incidents like this only serve to validate my theory.

Let's just hope and pray that the first extraterrestrials visiting Earth don't touch down in that part of the world. Otherwise we really will end up in an interstellar war like all the bad sci-fi movies would lead you to believe.

Stone-age societies still exist on planet Earth

This article is unbelievable!

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - Two years ago, a knock on Fatima and Mansour al-Timani's door shattered the life they had built together.

It was the police, delivering news that a judge had annulled their marriage in absentia after some of Fatima's relatives sought the divorce on grounds she had married beneath her.


This woman has been forced to live in jail with her two children, all because her relatives decided that her husband wasn't worthy of her.

Hell, I'm sure that goes for 90% of the males on the planet, folks. Myself included. But leave it to the Saudis to make it illegal.

God help us all if that sort of society becomes anything more than a minority in this country.

Don't let the door hit you on the ass on your way out

The world is one gigantic mixed nuts jar for sure, but this asshole must be that large, unidentifiable nut that lives all by itself in every jar (for those of you with a peanut allergy, you can use the analogy that he's the blackened and burnt potato chip in every bag).

(CNN) -- On a videotape released Sunday, American al Qaeda member Adam Yahiye Gadahn renounces his U.S. citizenship, destroys his passport and cites U.S. President Bush's upcoming trip to the Middle East.

"We raise an urgent appeal to our mujahedin brothers in the Muslim Palestine, the Arabian Peninsula in particular, and the region in general, to be prepared to receive the crusader butcher Bush on his visit to Muslim Palestine and the occupied peninsula at the beginning of January," he said. "They should receive him not with roses and applause, but with bombs and booby-traps."


Adam Yahiye Gadahn, also known as Azzam the American, is an American-born muslim raised in (you guessed it) California, or The Land of Fruits and Nuts as I like to refer to it.

But don't take my word for it. Go read his Wikipedia entry and decide for yourself whether this guy is a screwball.

Here's hoping someone finds a way to allow this guy to achieve room temperature just like the rest of his bomb-wearing brethren.
