Poem for the rooftops of Iran.

Tonight the shouts grow louder.
Allah-o Akbar.
Watch this video. With subtitles. Transcript below.

Tomorrow is Saturday. Tomorrow is a day of destiny.

Tonight, the cries of Allah-o Akbar are heard louder and louder than the nights before.

Where is this place? Where is this place where every door is closed? Where is this place where people are simply calling God? Where is this place where the sound of Allah-o Akbar gets louder and louder?

I wait every night to see if the sounds will get louder and whether the number increases. It shakes me. I wonder if God is shaken.

Where is this place that where so many innocent people are entrapped? Where is this place where no one comes to our aid? Where is this place that only with our silence we are sending our voices to the world? Where is this place that the young shed blood and then people go and pray -- standing on that same blood and pray. Where is this place where the citizens are called vagrants?

Where is this place? You want me to tell you? This place is Iran. The homeland of you and me.
This place is Iran.

Cheating on the 100 mile diet challenge...

We have been watching the show, The 100 mile challenge.

Basically it is a "reality" show, where families in Mission BC decide to eat only foods that are produced within a 100 mile radius of where they live.
It is an interesting to watch, as we have been trying to buy more locally produced foods...and failing miserably.

I think coffee would be the biggest stumbling block if we went cold turkey in this house. We only purchase three items to drink, coffee, juice and milk. 

2FF......I'm a killa!




Hellllllllllllpppppppppppppppppp meeeeeeeeeeeeee!


I smacked a couple flies and some mosquitoes today.


The group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals wants the flyswatter in
chief to try taking a more humane attitude the next time he's bedeviled by a fly
in the White House.

PETA is sending President Barack Obama a Katcha Bug Humane Bug Catcher, a
device that allows users to trap a house fly and then release it outside.

"We support compassion even for the most curious, smallest and least
sympathetic animals," PETA spokesman Bruce Friedrich said Wednesday. "We believe
that people, where they can be compassionate, should be, for all animals."

Does anyone at PETA have even the smallest grasp on reality?

Tattoo you

Having a couple of tattoos, I can attest to the fact that they hurt like HELL to get.  Could I have fallen asleep during the procedure?  Are you KIDDING ME?!?  Maybe after a few dozen elephant tranquilizer darts shot into my neck. 

A Belgian teenager is suing a tattooist for £10,000 after claiming she woke up with 56 stars on her face.

She was asleep while this dude tattooed 56 stars on her face.   Sure!  Totally believable.   "I asked for 3, and I fell asleep and stayed asleep while he put 53 extras on there with a loud, vibrating, stinging tattoo gun, even filling many of them in which entails basically like scraping that stinging vibrating gun over and over on the skin to fill the shape with ink".    Riiight!  Apparently she thinks we're just as stupid as the tattoo "artist" who decided putting a half a face of tattoos on an 18 year old girl was a good idea.

However, Mr Toumaniantz insists she "got what she wanted" - and only complained when her dad got angry and her boyfriend dumped her.

Next time, Mr. Toumaniantz, if there is a next time, how's about you maybe start with 3 little ones, and have the customer come back if they should decide they absolutely must have 50+ more stars tattooed onto their 18-yr old face, you dumbshit f**king hack.  
OY what a gong show.  And I feel bad on the rare occasion that I cut someone's bangs too short...
