Weird thing of the day 8 February 2005/29 Shevat 5765 (Kite Flying Day/Shrove Tuesday)


Still sick. No fever, but plenty of other symptoms. Have finished off the kneidlakh Mom made for me.

Political commentary: Condoleeza Rice has actively raised money for the (corrupt, terror-supporting) Palestinian Authority. Mahmoud Abbas wrote a doctoral thesis denying the Holocaust and is currently occupied doing everything he can to avoid getting the Palestinian Authority to live up to its obligations (such as fight Hamas), all the while pretending he is a respectable human being. Hosni Mubarak has failed to make his country, Egypt, live up to its obligations with regard to Israel, such as keeping smugglers from sneaking weapons into the Gaza Strip. Is anyone stupid enough to believe any of these is a good choice to help the “Palestinians” make real peace with Israel, especially when the current prime minister of Israel, Ariel Sharon, has gone insane and is ignoring democratic principles and risking civil war in order to force a questionable plan down his country’s throat? The last person to try such a crazy stunt was Yitzhak Rabin, and the results were disastrous. All these “peace-makers” should go fly a kite and find something more worthwhile to do with their time, such as hunting snipe.

Meanwhile, on this side of the Atlantic (and itself worthy of being dubbed weird thing of the day) cable companies provide porn while funding politicians. (Thank you, Dad, for pointing this one out to me.) The cable companies and the Republican recipients of their bribes should also go fly a kite and find something better to do with their time, such as hunting snipe. (It’s a big planet, and their are plenty of snipe to be hunted.)

Today’s weird thing is a grandfather clock made entirely out of LEGOs. (Somehow I feel tempted to challenge this guy to make a kite out of LEGOs. No doubt any snipe would stand in awe of him.)
