debris sandwich

I hope you can still eat tonights debris sandwich after reading this quote: A young mother this week watched helplessly as a baboon snatched and ripped open the skull of her only child and ate his brain. The baboon climbed to the top of a telephone pole before eating the brain. The locals are blaming it on witchcraft.

People dont want to admit as much, but it looks as though were facing guerilla warfare in Iraq. And, according to this article, attacks against our soldiers stationed there are becoming more frequent and sophisticated The good news, however, is that we might not have to worry about such things much longer. According to a British researcher, theres a fifty percent chance that the earth will end in apocalypse. Heres a clip from the article:

He lists as mankind’s biggest threats: nuclear terrorism, deadly engineered viruses, rogue machines and genetic engineering that could alter human character. All of those could result from innocent error or the action of a single malevolent individual.

I like the idea that the earth could end after a scientist genetically alters human character, perhaps making us all either suicidaly depressed, or dangerously angry. I like the idea of planet divided, half Morrisey half OJ. I wonder how long wed last.

According to Wired, the second-generation of on-line panhandlers arent fairing as well as their predecessors. I guess I missed my chance to successfully launch, the site where I’d raise money for the construction of my safe room.

I suppose this could be kind of good news. There are some reports out today stating that the Iraqi museum may have been looted not so much by Iraqi citizens, but by museum officials.

All hell broke lose in the Middle East tonight, but I dont have anything of interest to add to what you already know, except to say that the odds for apocalypse are probably better than 50/50 now.

Speaking of the apocalypse and the fact that our friends in the Middle East seem to have a road map leading them there, I just received a note from the illustrious Douglas Skinner. He wanted me to know that many American evangelical Christians are apparently praying for conflict, believing that it will hasten Jesus return to earth. Heres a quote from the article:

What is astonishing about this marriage of convenience is that their version of evangelical Christianity believes that biblical prophecy leads to Armageddon and finally to the conversion of the Jews to Christ. According to the most influential of the Christian Zionists, Hal Lindsey, the valley from Galilee to Eilat will flow with blood and “144,000 Jews would bow down before Jesus and be saved, but the rest of Jewry would perish in the mother of all holocausts”. These lunatic ravings would matter little were they not so influential. Lindsey’s book, The Late Great Planet Earth, has sold nearly 20m copies in English and another 30m-plus worldwide

There are 45 million evangelicals in the US and they represent a crucial block vote for born-again Bush. It is therefore to his credit that he has resisted their pressure and managed to persuade Sharon to accept the peace plan. Perhaps Bush is able to take the evangelical vote for granted in much the same way as Blair is able to take the left’s vote for granted: both have nowhere else to go.

Goodnight. Heres hoping that no baboons eat your brains while youre sleeping.
