I am a Muslim, a Christian, a Jew and a Buddhist too. If you don't like it, then this place is not for you, but as long as you don't force your beliefs on anyone, you're welcome to join in, it doesn't matter if you're a liberal, a republican or just simply you.
Nike's new ad campaign for its Hyperdunk shoes features a series of pictures of basketball players getting dunked on in what's considered the worst way possible: the dunker dangling off the rim, his balls dangling in the face of the man being dunk-ee. They all have dynamic slogans like "That Ain't Right!"
"....designed to hide personal emotions by eliciting a different set of public facial expressions that could be used to generate conversation and response in public spaces."
umm OK...let's just hope the anticipated responses in public are of the gentle kind. Something about this thing tells me it's more likely to set off some riots than make people smile. I mean look at it, it's ridiculous!
Smith has taken man's romance with the automobile to a whole new level, and he claims his attachments to his metal, leather-upholstered companions are far from platonic.
The 57-year-old Washington state native first had sex with a car at age 15, and says he has never been sexually attracted to people, female or male. And he feels no need to change.
"I'm not sick and I don't want to hurt anyone. Cars are just my preference," he told British newspaper the Telegraph.
His current flame is a Volkswagen Beetle that's he's named Vanilla, and considering a typical woman's reaction to Smith's spreading himself around, she's very low maintenance (not counting trips to the mechanic or pricey imported auto parts).
And there have been many others. A 1973 Opal GT named Cinnamon, a 1993 Ford Ranger Splash he called Ginger, and Victoria, a 1969 Beetle he bought from a family of Jehovah's Witnesses.
Smith explains, "I appreciate beauty and I go a little beyond appreciating the beauty of a car only to the point of what I feel is an expression of love," Smith said.
ROME: Italians are used to buying bogus Gucci bags or Rolex watches to look stylish but police found a new height of craftsmanship and cunning when they broke up a ring selling fake Ferrari cars for a fraction of the real price. Police accused 15 people of building the blood red sports cars and selling them to car fanatics on a budget, most of whom knew they were buying a counterfeit classic.
Holland's biggest most popular online dictionary Van Dale made a little booboo. It listed "Muslim" as an explanation for the term "goat fucker".
After a random visitor pointed this out, Van Dale explained that this was due to a technical error and went offline briefly to fix the problem. Apparently the term "goat fucker" was missing the proper labels to indicate that it's deemed "offensive" and "vulgar".
Van Gogh rejected every form of religion. In the late 1990s he started to focus on Islam. He caused widespread resentment in the Muslim community by consistently referring to them as geitenneukers (goat-fuckers). Although it is not clear whether Van Gogh actually coined the term geitenneukers, he certainly popularised it. He felt strongly that political Islam is an increasing threat to liberal western societies, and said that, if he'd been younger, he would have emigrated to the U.S.A., which he considered to be a beacon of light in a darkening world.
One of the few politicians who seemed to be exempt from Van Gogh's criticisms was the conservative leader Pim Fortuyn, who was assassinated in 2002. Van Gogh usually referred to him as the divine baldhead. After the death of Fortuyn, Van Gogh continued attacking the remaining members of the Lijst Pim Fortuyn as he did other politicians. His political idol from then on was Ayaan Hirsi Ali.
Note: Just to give proper credit, it was actually a reader at the Dutch news portal nu.nl/ who pointed out the problem. There is no further information about the reader.
Thanks to diligent government intervention, the hasty birth of a Wilders premie has been rescued in a nick of time. But as it is right now, the monstrous creation by the Wilders brigade is currently deemed harmful to the public and still remains hidden from view somewhere in the far out lands. Some think the forced delay might be necessary to prevent the spread of infectious mind disease, which unfortunately cannot be completely eradicated, but is nevertheless deemed extreme by general standards and could possibly produce a series of fatal errors on a pandemic scale. And while the Wilders beast is still awaiting release from its neonatal intensive care unit, after some long drawn out excruciating neoconstipation in the delivery room, the Wilders paranormal infantry unit has now at least managed to foresee a name for the beast and make it known to the public. Yep, the beast has got a name.
According to a preconceived official statement released by a member of the Wilders NeoAdulation Broadcast Systems, "Fitna" is the name!
In the mean time, the creature has gone through a tremendous growth spurt, measuring a full 15 minutes, compared to the 10 minutes previously announced. Keep in mind though, all this might very well be make believe, as no one has seen the monster yet and there is no concrete evidence that it actually does exist.
KUALA LUMPUR — A Malaysian court on Tuesday rejected a petition to have a dead man declared a Buddhist after he was buried as a Muslim in the latest interfaith dispute to rock this multiethnic but largely Muslim nation.
Relatives of the late Gan Eng Gor had asked the High Court in southern Seremban state to reverse a decision by an Islamic Shariah court that declared him a Muslim. But the High Court rejected the plea, saying it had no jurisdiction in the matter, the family's lawyer, Tan Foong Luen, told The Associated Press.
The deceased, an ethnic Chinese, was given an Islamic burial last Thursday by his eldest son, a Muslim convert, who won custody of the body after getting the Shariah Court's approval. The rest of the family insisted the man had never converted, saying he had suffered two strokes and couldn't even speak at the time of the alleged conversion.
