The Muslim Concentration

UK Express:

The accident, which occurred on June 16, was caused when the driver passed a red signal before coming off the track and hitting a mast - resulting in the station’s closure and rail chaos across London.

Investigators are now probing whether the accident occurred because the driver was undergoing a Ramadan fast and had not eaten in the 15 hours before the crash.

Some folks don't know that the Ramadan fasting requires one to abstain from food and drinks during the day. I've known mental muzzies who have had something to drink at 8 p.m., then woke up late the next day and continued to fast. This means that by 4 p.m. next day, they have had nothing to drink for 20 hours! By that time, they're on the verge of passing out. Driving a car, let alone a train, is patently stupid and dangerous in that context.

The report adds fasting “can affect people’s concentration levels”.

You don't say. It's not just the terrorists that'll get you killed.


Uber + Muzzies = Drama

Toronto Metro News:

Mohammed Mahbubul Haque claims passenger Maria Mughal slammed his door twice before she threw his phone out the window.

Would that be called phone-o-phobia? 

Haque denied he told Mughal or her three fellow passengers that “Muslim Pakistani women should keep quiet,” as she had alleged to Torstar News Service on Monday.

The Islamophobia is overwhelming. I can't even ... where is my fainting couc---

From the photo caption:

Maria Mughal, right, was allegedly assaulted by an Uber driver, as captured on video. Mughal has a splint on her finger and cannot lift that arm above shoulder height, she also has a bruise below the knee on one of her legs. Her friend Nusrat Ali witnessed the assault in Toronto.

This looks really bad for the Muslim uber driver. We have a) a bit of video, b) a woman with injuries, and c) another eye witness.

Memo to uber drivers: have an always-on camera in your car. That will make you behave better and crazy customers won't be able to spin a tale of terror.


The sharp and the blurry

Vox Popoli:

What people living in the USA tend to forget is that their imported nationalities are all watered down now. Virtually no one is pure Irish or Swedish or Italian anymore, and so the US facial features tend to be a little blurred in comparison with the sharper features of their distant Old World cousins. In fact, here one can not infrequently identify what town an individual comes from on the basis of their facial appearance alone.

Many years ago, a friend told me about an event he attended at an Indian temple in Canada. I think many of the people there were from Punjab.

He memorably and haltingly said, "They. Looked. Just. Like. You!"

Never lose frame

The Rational Male:

If a man’s first act of a coerced monogamy is his capitulating to what amounts to a socially mandated ultimatum I think the woman he surrendered to will subconsciously lose the respect she had for him while they were “undocumented lovers.”

The combination of physical, emotional, financial, and intellectual superiority in a man is very attractive to a woman. Weakness of any kind in these matters can be the death of a relationship.


Pornocop

ABC News:

Moon Tae-Hwa stares at his computer, dizzy and nauseous from the hours of porn he's viewed online while his wife and children slept. He feels no shame — only a righteous sense of mission.

"I feel like I'm cleaning up dirty things," the devout Christian and family counselor said.

Moon is among the most successful members of the "Nuri Cops" (roughly "net cops"), a squad of nearly 800 volunteers who help government censors by patrolling the Internet for pornography in their spare time.

It's a hard job but somebody's got to do it!


Burn fail

Alpha Game:

Intentionally seeking to to make a man jealous is simply the lesser form of "let's you and him fight". Even if the woman is too innocent or insufficiently cognizant of cause-and-effect to realize what she is doing, the man usually understands, at least on some level, that he is being involuntarily placed into a position where he is potentially at physical risk. Most men do not look at all favorably on this sort of thing, especially if they are not violent men who get an adrenaline rush from feeling blood on their hands.

Too innocent! Such women exist?


Will it blend?

Anandtech:

In the car industry, there is a large variety of cars to choose from - both the cheap and the expensive will get you from A to B, but in various amounts of luxury, with different engines and features under the hood. In comparison the motherboard industry, we have nothing like this - products are built to specifications and have to remain price competitive. Very rarely do we get a price competitive motherboard with a ton of features that also stretches the wallet in the same way a luxury car might do. For this analogy, we have the P8Z77-V Premium from ASUS to review, which comes in at $450 MSRP, but features Thunderbolt connectivity, dual Intel NIC, an onboard 32GB mSATA SSD, a PLX chip for 4-way PCIe devices, onboard WiFi, Bluetooth, and extra SATA/USB ports.

I don't get the logic behind putting a puny 32GB SSD in such a luxury product. Those who buy this behemoth will likely get a newer, faster SSD anyway.


Bad badminton

So funny:

The eight women involved in last night's badminton match-throwing scandal have been kicked out of the Olympics. The women's tournament descended into farce in the evening session as four pairs all appeared to try to lose their matches in order to secure a favorable draw in the next round.

I, of course, blame the Patriarchy: it won't even let the women lose!


Power grid go bye bye

370 million people without electricity:

Northern India's power grid crashed Monday, halting trains, forcing hospitals and airports onto backup power and providing a dark reminder of the nation's inability to feed a growing hunger for energy as it strives to become an economic power.

Losing power is not out of the ordinary for people in India. The big question: just how long will it take for the power to come back?

By evening, 15 hours after the outage began, officials said full power had been restored.

Not bad. From experience, it becomes stressful when power is lost for over 24 hours (with no backup).

The fairer sex?

Women love and, of course, obey power:

The close cousin of lemmingitis (falling in step with fads) is obedience to authority. If you are apt to align your lifestyle with whatever is the latest fashion, (and ostracize those who don’t), you are probably also apt to blindly obey high status authority figures telling you what is good for you. If true, then we might speculate that women make better cultural foot soldiers for whichever elite authority is most tangible in their lives, owing to women’s greater propensity to accept authority dictums without question.


Understanding The L Goggles

Alpha Game:

Of course, it sounds absurd to suggest that a man's wife would kick one to the curb because his physical peak has passed, so how does it make any sense to imagine that a husband would be inclined to get rid of his wife simply because she isn't 22 anymore? Because there are more attractive women out there? There always were. There may be a few more than there were before, but he always had other options. Is a woman going to eventually be eclipsed by twenty-somethings? Of course, it is the way of the world.

Read it all. Later in the post:

it is so tragic when women, particularly women over thirty, cast aside their husbands in search of something better. Because no matter whom they meet, no one will ever look at them again through love goggles, which like beer goggles, tend to make a man see a woman through a soft and flattering lens as her mythical and eternally youthful self rather than the harsh, objective light of reality.

Looks do matter but they're not the only thing. As long as a woman doesn't turn into a whale after marriage and isn't disrespectful to her husband (both of which are not mutally exclusive), then she shouldn't worry much.
