April 27th, 2012 by

His misspelled sign burned in the fire before the photo was taken.

A group of religious fundamentalists were protesting the expansion of a mosque in their area. They said it was being built on land that was sacred to them and they did not approve. They said they would destroy it unless the¬†construction¬†site were moved. When they found that a worship site of yet another religion was already in the area, they then demanded that that site be moved as well. (more…)

Know Your Right-Wing Homeopaths

April 13th, 2012 by

LOL WHAW

World Homeopathy Awareness Week started this past Tuesday, probably because Tuesday is an infinitely diluted Monday. It’s kind of like Breast Cancer Awareness Week in that the thing we’re supposed to be more aware of suffers a major PR blow from all that awareness.

6 So-Bad-They're-Actually-Still-Bad Scams

March 30th, 2012 by

One thing I want to make clear here is that when I say these businesses are scams, I’m not making any claims about conscious fraud. It’s entirely possible that all of the people involved in all of these businesses honestly believe they’re providing goods and services of actual value for their customers. My point is that if they do believe that, they’re wrong. (more…)
