My Goodness – Dumbass Holywood Buddhists and Inflatable Children

Quick links:

Sharon Stone, who is understandably pissed off about China’s repression of Tibet, has decided that the Sichuan earthquake, which has taken the lives of horrific numbers of lives, was the result of Karma. I learned about if from this post, properly titled “Not everyone who says something stupid about a natural disaster is a Christian.”

Dumbass father in Cambodia decided to inflate his child rather than feed him, apparently. The take on this, here, is priceless:

A father, while “playing” with his 5 year old son decided it would be a hoot to play “inflate my kid.” I don’t know if any of you are familiar with this game but it is the one where the retarded Cambodian father sticks an air hose designed to fill car tires in his 5 year old’s anus. Unfortunately the game was cut short when Daddy learned that kids don’t inflate. Don’t worry, the kid (Sok Sambo is his name) suffered a distended stomach but received medical attention and will be just fine for about 15,000 miles before he may need to be re-inflated and possibly rotated.

My favorite part of the story is that the police have decided not to arrest the man because his only offense was “pure stupidity, against which there is currently no law.” The article was silent on whether the legislature was trying to change that…and how many pounds of pressure a properly inflated 5 year old Cambodian boy’s stomach should achieve.

Wenchuan Earthquake in Sichuan Province, PRC – National Day of Mourning

In Uncategorized on May 19, 2008 at 8:29 pm

China, too, has had an enormous tragedy in the last week. Exactly one week ago, in fact, the Sichuan Earthquake of 2008 (aka the Wenchuan earthquake) registered at 8.0 on the richter scale. Tens of thousands, and very likely hundreds of thousands, will have lost their lives before things return to ‘normal.’

Today, the People’s Republic of China declared a 3-day period of National Mourning.
