Attack of the Morons

If that's your first thought...

Guests at a new hotel in Las Vegas have complained of receiving severe burns from a 'death ray' of sunlight caused by the unique design of the building. Due to the concave shape of the Vdara hotel, the strong Nevada sun reflects off its all-glass front and directly onto sections of the swimming pool area below.

The result has left some guests with burns from the powerful rays and even plastic bags have been recorded as melting in the heat.

Chicago attorney Bill Pintas felt the power of the dangerous ray first hand last week.

'It felt like I had a chemical burn. I couldn't imagine why my head was burning,' he said. 'Within 30 seconds, the back of my legs were burning. My first though was, 'Jesus, they destroyed the ozone layer!'
The attorney's second thought was how much he could sue for.

One Issue Party

I always imagined 'women's issues' would at least include subjects like family, relationships, children.

Silly me:

Women, it appears, according to, are interested only in the rights of homosexuals.

A Question of Child Abuse

AAP reports:

Detention centre 'ripe for child sex abuse'

REFUGEE advocates say both the immigration department and the minister knew there was a risk of child sex abuse occurring at detention centres housing cross-cultural families.
So there's a greater risk of child abuse from mixing cultures? Or just from mixing the cultural groups held at the centre?

More importantly, if these cultures can be predicted to abuse children, why are we importing them?

Suicide By Multiculturalism

The risks of liberal 'compassion':

When police arrested a suspected al-Qaida cell in Norway last month they turned up the makings of a bomb lab... the suspected plot... was one of three planned attacks on the West hatched in the rugged mountains of northwest Pakistan by some of al-Qaida's most senior leaders. The other plots targeted the bustling New York subway and a shopping mall in Manchester, England...

Authorities say the ringleader of the Norwegian plot is 39-year-old Mikael Davud, an Uighur who came to Norway in 1999 as part of a U.N. refugee program and then became a Norwegian citizen eight years later. Uighurs, a largely Muslim ethnic group in China, claim oppression at the hands of authorities there.
Perhaps he was feeling oppressed in Norway too but one would wonder why - the Norwegeians made no demands of him, not even to assimilate in the slightest:

Despite his citizenship and longtime Norwegian residence, Davud speaks very little Norwegian or English...
Meanwhile, it's no good trying to please them. Give them a little and they'll just shove for more:

...outlets of popular French fast food chain Quick are serving burgers it says respect Islamic dietary law. And while many Muslims are delighted, the powerful main Paris Mosque complained Thursday that Quick's criteria aren't all-encompassing enough, and that the operation is meaningless.

Quick's meat is certified as halal, but Cheikh Al Sid Cheikh, assistant to the rector of the Paris Mosque, said the burger chain should have had the other ingredients checked as well, from its mustard to buns to fries. "The rest must be validated too, or else there's no point," he told The Associated Press.
