Musing #6

January 17th, 2007

I bet there’s a some kind of super-duper wheel we could have but never will because no one wants to re-invent it.

ETA Claims “Permanent” Ceasefire Still in Place

January 10th, 2007

According to an article on the BBC news website, the Basque separatist group ETA have claimed responsibility for the bomb that went off in a car park in Barajas Airport (Madrid) on 30th December. In the same statement, it seems the ETA spokesman confirmed that the “permanent ceasefire”, announced by the group last March, is still in place.

In further news from the Basque Country, an eighteen year-old girl had sex for the first time at a New Year’s Eve party in Bilbao. In a recent statement to the press, she claimed full responsibility for the sexual act and affirmed that her virginity was still in place.

Meanwhile the Basque Vegetarian Society (Euskadi Gizarte Barazkijale) hosted their AGM and dinner-dance where members enjoyed a delicious steak dinner. “We are still vegetarians,” the Society’s president announced.

Charges Against Saddam Dropped

January 8th, 2007

It seems that the Iraqi High Tribunal has dropped the remaining charges against Saddam Hussein (BBC report).

Well, it’s good to see that they have a grasp of the fundamentals of jurisprudence, such as having a living defendant. Still, I think they’re sending the wrong message out to dead dictators everywhere. Next someone will find a mass grave in Romania but no one will be arsed bringing charges against Nicolae CeauÅŸescu.

What is the world coming to?
