Well it has been a lovely long weekend, marred only by the usual lack of internet connectivity. Let’s do a quick round-up:
The world didn’t end last week. No surprises there. Eric has been flailing around, explaining how the comet may not actually cause the wave but merely be blamed for it, that he saw the comet enter the atmosphere, that we should be mindful of the upcoming resignation of the US Treasury Secretary…. blah blah blah. It didn’t happen Eric, give it up. The aliens aren’t talking to you, you’re crazy.
Michael Jackson made his first official public appearance this weekend, and guess where he decided to go? An orphanage. That man should fire his publicist. Right now.
Also, here is another argument for requiring a licence to become a parent: putting a child in the tumble dryer because she spilled something on herself. The 13-month-old girl suffered severe burns to her feet and her left hand, after the mother’s boyfriend put her in the dryer, closed the door and turned it on for ‘a couple of minutes’. Granted, Samuel Siddall wasn’t the child’s father, but in a case like this i feel that castration should be part of the mandatory sentence. This person has proved that they are totally and utterly incapable of parenting a child, and should never be allowed to have a child of their own. Ever.
You may think i’m overreacting, but at least one person has managed to kill her own baby this way. Can you really believe that there’s a god, when people who would make wonderful parents He makes infertile, and yet He gives children to people like this?
