I guess I shouldn't be too hard on you. In 2010, two leading parliament in the "we're-not-racist-we're-just-patriots" party called a known Swedish-Iranian stand-up comedian for "baboon", a bystander for "blatte*-lover" and then armed themselves with steel pipes because they were afraid of the stand-up comedian and his posse.

*blatte is not quite as bad as the n-word but it's not a good word. Not at all.

Interesting combination of subject matter and sig line there...

In other news, a short quote from a light piece in the New York Times today:

Quote:
I made up dozens of nonsensical names for the cat over the years — The Quetzal, Quetzal Marie, Mrs. Quetzal Marie the Cat, The Inquetzulous Q’ang Marie. There was a litany I recited aloud to her every morning, a sort of daily exhortation that began, “Who knows, Miss Cat, what fantastical adventures the two of us will have today?” I had a song I sang to her when I was about to vacuum, a brassy Vegas showstopper called “That Thing You Hate (Is Happening Again).” We collaborated on my foot-pedal pump organ to produce The Hideous Cat Music, in which she walked back and forth at her discretion on the keyboard while I worked the pedals. The Hideous Cat Music resembled the work of the Hungarian composer Gyorgy Ligeti, with aleatory passages and unnervingly sustained tone clusters.

I never meant to become this person.

Knowing 2 people who have committed murder.

Luckily it stopped there, otherwise I would have been worried.

While clearing out my farm shed/workshop I found a flamethrower that had been left behind by the previous owner.

That's OK flamethrowers aren't considered firearms. They're considered "fuel devises" and are regulated by the USDA. Check with your local laws.

A friend of mine has just moved into a new house and found a spear in the garage. (Our best guess is some sort of Victorian souvenir of Empire.)

You could easily know many more people that committed murder but just haven't been found out yet.

The horrible and tragic ethnic cleansing of the Yazidis certainly has potential in games involving the occult or military adventurism. There are certainly enough wild rumours and villains to build a story around!
