I am told that the pain of childbirth is approximately equivalent to that of passing a large kidney stone, which is something that my testosterone has not prevented (and something which I'd rather not contemplate), so :yahbooh: to you too! :wink:

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

'Course it is! But they only get three tries before the card is swallowed by the machine. I often wonder how many people have the same PIN number as me, merely the customers of the bank I use let alone all card holding people in the world!

The Onion strikes again

by Sharon Hill on September 30, 2012 at 11:09 am

Onion article cited as fact by Iran news agency – US news – Weird news | NBC News.

A joke by the satirical website The Onion appears to have gotten lost in translation.

An Iranian news agency picked up — as fact — a story from the paper about a supposed Gallup survey showing an overwhelming majority of rural white Americans would rather vote for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than President Barack Obama. But it was made up, like everything in the just-for-laughs newspaper, which is headquartered in Chicago.

The English-language service of Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency republished the story Friday, several days after it appeared in The Onion.

The Iranian version copied the original word-for-word, even including a made-up quote from a fictional West Virginia resident who says he’d rather go to a baseball game with Ahmadinejad because “he takes national defense seriously, and he’d never let some gay protesters tell him how to run his country like Obama does.”

Homosexual acts are punishable by death in Iran, and Ahmadinejad famously said during a 2007 appearance at Columbia University that “in Iran we don’t have homosexuals like in your country.”
The Onion made a joke out of the mistake. Many people fall for parody websites. That should tell us something. The current news is sometimes so absurd that we can no longer tell real from parody.
