I hope this last weekend of June is going well for everyone and that our American readers are looking forward to a 4 day work week coming up.
This first video was sent in by Emory and it’s a clip of an interview with a Dr. Ahmed Al Mu’bi on LBC TV, a Lebanese television station.Â In this clip, Dr. Al Mu’bi is discussing the legality of child brides and of having sex with those child brides.Â It’s not exactly news that Mohammed had a child bride and that this is used as a standard by some Muslims but watching someone be so matter of fact about sex with a 9 year old is still disturbing.Â I’d be interested to see this in the context of the rest of the interview.
Now you need a laugh, right?Â Well then, here’s a video that had me LOLing.Â Definitely the weirdest, funniest, and perhaps most compelling science equipment advertisement I’ve seen. Thank you, Vera, for pointing this one out.
Now for some quickies.
- Terry Pratchett on god– “There is a rumour going around that I have found God. I think this is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.”
- Sex with robots possible by 2050, experts say-Â Ew ew ew ew ew ew.Â Uh, thanks, Mike.
- Vitter and Craig cosponsor Federal Marriage Ammendment-Â That’s right, two senators who have been too busy having affairs to protect their own marriages are, “co-sponsors of S. J. RES. 43, dubbed the Marriage Protection Amendment.”Â Because it’s teh gayz who are threatening marriage, not lying cheating US senators.
