Beware of performing in front of someone


Jewish date:  8 ’Elul 5769.

Today’s holiday:  Feast Day of Augustine, Bishop of Hippo.

Today’s quasi-holiday:  Dream Day Quest and Jubilee.

Worthy cause of the day:  “Urge the Senate to protect sharks”.

Relevant to Divine Misconceptions:  “Swedish Future”.  This is a sarcastic cartoon on the recent anti-Semitic accusation based purely on hearsay of organ-harvesting by Israelis.  Despite the improbability of this claim and absence of supporting evidence, it was published anyway in the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.  So far the Swedish government, in the name of free speech, has done nothing of any consequence except retract a condemnation of the article in question by the Swedish ambassador to Israel.  This is a failure of critical thinking which encourages further failures of critical thinking, as those who want to spread misinformation in Sweden now have reason to believe they can get away with it.  It also reinforces the Islamic jihad against the West in Sweden, since jihadists know they can use the press in Sweden to spread their claims and values, no matter how outrageous.

Today’s news and commentary:
Today’s weird thing is “Chances of doing a really cool trick”.

Enjoy, share the weirdness, and Shabbath shalom.
