I know my posts have consisted of a bit more fluff than usual but:
- I’m working on a project at work and need a bit of a break when I get to blog and,
- that’s one of the things I really enjoy about my little project here. I can follow my whims and not get bound by artificial restrictions.
Anyway, I imagine I’ll be getting back to more weighty topics next week. But for now:
Your Swedish headline of the day:
Comrade Bear shoots a whale. Does the Kremlin count as his lair or should he really have a base under a volcano or something?
Putin held his balance in a rubber boat that was being tossed around in choppy waters off the Kamchatka Peninsula, and eventually hit the whale with a special arrow designed to collect skin samples.
Courtesy of Balko, more homeland security nonsense. Seven people dressed up as zombies and decided to go to the local mall to protest consumerism. Someone saw their PA system and, freaking out, called the cops who arrested them for:
…disorderly conduct and said the zombies’ homemade public address rig looked like a weapon of mass destruction.
The zombies sued and the city council decided to settle for $165,000. Good for them.
YT sent me this article about the unveiling of the Iranian drone bomber thingy. Leave it to the Iranians to screw up on the messaging…
“The jet, as well as being an ambassador of death for the enemies of humanity, has a main message of peace and friendship,” said Ahmadinejad at the inauguration ceremony, which fell on the country’s national day for its defense industries.
WTF does that mean?! I guess he had an extra dose of crazy with his breakfast.
Is it me or would Putin, Assange and Ahmadinejad make a great league of super villains? It wouldn’t be a stretch to give them superpowers…Putin could be like Colossus, Assange could be the Leader. I’m not sure about Ahmadinejad…someone crazy and out of touch with reality…Green Goblin, maybe?
