Mid-Week Post

If you play Lady Gaga's songs backwards, they still suck.

Say it ain't so!

CBC is reporting that Chief Theresa Spence will end her hunger strike tomorrow morning on Thursday, January 24.

Spence will be making a public statement about the end of her hunger strike at 11:00 a.m. EST on Thursday.

The longing for peppercorn steak overwhelmed her.

No one tells the Australians what to do:

Senior Colonel Liu Mingfu of China's National Defence University has raised the specter of a nuclear war, and warned Australia not to side with America and Japan. Liu is not an official spokesman for China, but his views are approved. Referring to the dispute between Japan and China over the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands, Liu said that China was prepared to fight "to the death": 

America is the global tiger and Japan is Asia's wolf and both are now madly biting China. Of all the animals, Chinese people hate the wolf the most. 

If this Japanese wolf again attacks America's Pearl Harbor or Australia's Darwin, how do you know it wouldn't receive another nuclear bomb? The world would hail if Japan receives such a blow. 

I think the Chinese take a page out of the Islamist paranoid fantasy playbook and run with it. Why are we trading with them again?

Two men enter; one 'roo leaves.

Oh, do shut up:

Taro Aso, who is also the country's Deputy Prime Minister, said during a meeting to discuss reforms to the country's social security program, "Heaven forbid if you are forced to live on when you want to die. I would wake up feeling increasingly bad knowing that [treatment] was all being paid for by the government." He also added, "The problem won't be solved unless you let them hurry up and die."

God, you sound like this guy.

If not every opinion is valid, is yours extra-irrelevant?

Only hours after students installed a “Free Speech Wall” at Carleton University to prove that campus free speech was alive and well, it was torn down by an activist who claimed the wall was an “act of violence,” against the gay community. ...

By Tuesday morning the wall was gone, destroyed in an act of “forceful resistance,” by seventh-year human rights student Arun Smith.

This is the left and this is what they stand for.

LEGO cannot be used for evil. Therefore, your opinion is invalid (just like Arun Smith):

Lego has been accused of racism by the Turkish community over a Star Wars toy allegedly depicting  a mosque.

The critics claim that the Jabba's Palace model, part of Lego's Star Wars range, offends Muslims as it resembles the Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul - one of the world's most renowned mosques.

Yes, this actually happened:

A fire caused by a flaming shipment of gourmet cheese has shut down a northern Norwegian traffic tunnel, a closure that could last for weeks as the damage is repaired.

Have I laid my brain in the sun and dried it, that it wants matter to prevent so gross o'erreaching as this? Am I ridden with a Welsh goat too? shall I have a coxcomb of frize? 'Tis time I were choked with a piece of toasted cheese. (V, 5) (Falstaff, The Merry Wives of Windsor)
