Tactical Shorts

Apparently you can buy Tactical Shorts--snigger--, is this as opposed the strategic shorts? I suppose the reason I find this so amusing must be that I'm just not tactical enough. --snigger-- OK I'm better now, I suppose they may actually have some tactical value, after all if someone is on the floor laughing they are going to have trouble shooting you. ;-)

A Tale of Two Companies

In business news the CEO of Bunyip Industries has informed the Chairman of Dragons Incorporated that he is concerned about their significant abuses of their employees, despite continuing to negotiate a closer trade arrangement, including various technological exchanges, between the two companies. Dragons Incorporated has a history of abuses against their employees, up to and including the murder of employees known to disagree with their managers. Dragons Incorporated is currently facing sever criticism about their treatment of a particular subsidy relatively recently gained in a hostile take-over. Strangely enough, many of Bunyip Industries' employees have expressed pleasure at this development, though there does appear to be a minority of employees that are uncomfortable with this development.

Affirmative Action in the Victorian Police

Looks like a significant chunk of the Victorian police force is pissed of at affirmative action, even some of the female cops are angry about it. Basically what the government has done is that when they found that not many females where capable of passing the training as is rather than just accepting that maybe males where, on average, more suited to the police force and that therefore they would be more numerous than the chicks they decided to remove important components of the training (the ones that normally gave women trouble) to improve the sexual diversity of the police force. So now the majority of the new cops (both male and female because the male's training has changed too) would have been considered sub-quality by past standards. Lovely, just lovely.

I must be tired, after reading this article I can't even work up the motivation to make some snarky comments about how the reason why they were so "brazen" was because there was no one in the school capable of doing anything about them. Or about how retarded "lockdown" is as a defensive technique. So I'll just keep it short and sweet: "The best way to deal with a knife wielding maniac is to pack a gun and shoot the stupid punk." But, no the idea of letting people defend themselves or those around them is so utterly foreign to our society. Oh, well at least one of the teachers had some courage to defend the children in his care. Will you look at that now I'm angry at society and the police for encouraging this sort of pathetically wussy response ("lockdown") and I've actually written significantly more than I thought I would.

The Question of Suffering

Welcome to my new series¹ of "Stumper Questions for Christians that are Actually Easy to Answer". Yep, this is it folks all those questions you've always been to afraid to think about because if you do you might be forced to abandon your faith in Jesus, sort of like how you've abandoned mathematics because you don't know what 20 Log5 equals. Oh no, can't possibly believe in Jesus if there is even the slightest little unanswered question about God, the Bible, or ancient Egyptian construction techniques remaining unanswered. Why yes, this series will be written "tongue-in-cheek", so to speak, why do you ask?
