Russian Cars

The middle one is the Pobeda Sport.  Any clues as to the other two?  The front one may be concept car.

Bible lessons in schools

The article is a few months old but is still relevant.  Unfortunately I don't know the court case outcome as I only heard a mention of it in passing on the radio yesterday.    Some of the comments below the article  hurt my brain.

"Articles like these always fuel a religious debate. The Bible is a factual historical account that stands up to the harshest scrutiny. That should mean that Bible lessons are actually history lessons. She'll be thankful in the long run...the good news is the best thing one can hear."

The only thing the Bible is, besides the religious interpretation made by wise man, is a collection of old texts, written along different times and put together. Of course it's so complex we will hear much more opinions about its meaning, even in Literature, just imagine.
Like other religious texts, its very difficult to follow the Bible's texts track.

It doesn't surprise me as wealthier people also tend to be better educated and there is a correlation between education and lack of religious beliefs.

Breakfast

Two eggs on a yoghurt bed on warmed naan with cumin, paprika, and basil.

In my world most people just do not eat in the morning. I think it's incredible, too. Some campaigns are made in schools and with parents and students about that.

Our common breakfast is called "continental" and it's only a cup of milk and chocolate or just milk and one loaf of bread with butter, cheese, something like that.
In the middle of the morning we eat again the same or fruit, and always coffee. That's when those people eat their breakfast.

Even so, many people do not eat until lunch - that's why we do those campaigns I talked about: incredible.

Eggs and stuff like naan is just for lunch and dinner.

FUCK +stuff.co.nz  and their fucking autoplay videos.  I think I just woke up everyone in the house as my computer's volume was way way up when one of their videos started playing in the background.  Frantic attempt to turn volume down AND randomly closing shitloads of browser tabs in an attempt to find the offending page.

I didn't know that.  Wouldn't do much good for me as I did a blind panic closing of tabs - fear of my partner awakening in a disturbed sleep rage.

Mad Max Boycott

I'm not particularly attracted to this film but calls like this make me think perhaps I should go and see it:

Male rights group say the Mad Max: Fury Road is "a feminist piece of propaganda".

Of course our opinions - or mine at least - are purely subjective and based on knowing what we like and I don't particularly like action films for the most part and never really saw the attraction in the original films - except that I do like the very first film's rawness which was lost once it became a hollywood franchise.  (Same thing happened to the terminator - Arnie was great in the first film.  Those scenes of him driving around are menacing) . Knowing +Glenn Cooke it surprised me that he went and saw this film in the first place.  I guess 17 years in Hong  Kong change a man.

Oh, the irony

But neighbour Bryce Watts, a Catholic, said the marble statue was "bizarre" and "offensive".

"Religiously and culturally it's a bit insensitive to us and I can't believe they're able to do this. Part of our property looks at it and it's part of a religion we don't agree with," he said.

"I don't see why we should have it poked down our throats in such a big way."

Courier Post is useless A parcel came for me that needed to be signed for. It arrived before the business opened. Instead of attempting delivery later in the day as every other Courier company does, they took it back to their depot and sent me an email. I had to complete a form selecting whether to get it delivered in another day, pick it up from the Depot (wherever that may be) or to redirect it to another address. I selected to have it delivered tomorrow. No doubt they will attempt to deliver it before the business opens which means I will have to be there bloody early. I'm a trifle annoyed by this. For future orders I'll be requesting any other viable service be used other than Courier Post even if it is only a kid on a bicycle.
