    This one is definitely in the "because we can" department.

    Yeah, it's not exactly a necessary scientific endeavor, but still it would be neat to see a living woolly mammoth in person.

    Hundreds of high school students in Paris staged a rally blocking the entrances to a dozen schools which is the latest in the series of anti-police protests over the alleged rape of a young man with a police baton, who is currently hospitalized with injuries. A clash between French police and fringe youths happened today and eight people have been arrested.

    Four police officers have been suspended pending an inquiry into the Feb. 2 incident. One has been placed under formal investigation for suspected rape and three others for unnecessary use of force.

    That’s it then. Looks as though South Africa has just been awarded junk status. http://www.timeslive.co.za/local/201...t-does-it-mean. No surprises there! Not after the recent unexpected (although not unprecedented) sacking of the quite competent and honourable state Finance Minister and his deputy, amongst others, only for them to be replaced by an inexperienced and unqualified poseur who is being assisted by the Pres’s obscenely rich and powerful string-pulling pals.


    And in what at first appears to be unrelated other news, a few days ago, the Western Cape High Court decreed that it is now legal to both grow and use cannabis in your own home.



    Hmmmm …. I smell a big fat rat (underlying the voluminous cloud of marijuana smoke)! Is this a strategic measure to calm everyone down? So we can all get happily and legally stoned while Nero is fiddling the books and Rome burns? Lends new meaning to the phrase ‘gone to pot’!
