Defence against the dark arts: Saudi Arabia trains staff against black magic

Quote
A Saudi government commission gave dozens of members of its Mecca governing body a five-day crash course in “developing scientific skills to defeat black magic”.

Let’s hear it for Science!

Did they get the idea from Monty Python?

I don’t know. Do you think “The Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice” has a sense of humor?

First interstellar immigrant discovered in the solar system

As per the article, “A new study has discovered the first known permanent immigrant to our Solar System. The asteroid, currently nestling in Jupiter's orbit, is the first known asteroid to have been captured from another star system. The work is published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society: Letters.

The object known as 'Oumuamua was the last interstellar interloper to hit the headlines in 2017. However it was just a tourist passing through, whereas this former exo-asteroid—given the catchy name (514107) 2015 BZ509—is a long-term resident.”

I can’t help but wonder if President Spanky will try to have it deported.

To Republicans, family values may be more about quantity than quality. The more families, the more family values.

Because it's all going according to plan.

Honestly, if I was a Russian intelligence operative, you know what I'd be planning right now? Blatantly and obviously supporting the Democrats in 2020, with a very clear crumb trail back to Moscow.

Trump will rage, likely declare the election illegitimate, may refuse to stand down if he loses, will definitely direct the DOJ to go after the Democrats if he somehow still wins.  Meanwhile, 50% of the voting population will think the other 50% are traitor-supporting scum.  Each side will be convinced the other is working with Russia, is illegitimate and unfit to rule.  Throw in a few coordinated protests, maybe encourage a bit of violence and then sit back and watch as the USA rips itself apart.

Russia doesn't care who sits in the White House.  It cares about paralysing the normal function of the US government, giving it a free hand in its near abroad and areas of interest like Syria.  Best way to do that is to take advantage of US hyperpartisanship, and that doesn't mean backing any one player fully.

Brilliant! You’ve just scared the hell out of me, but your plan is brilliant!

More importantly, how does this effect Spanky’s nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize?

Unfortunately I suspect they are both lying.

I will cast my votes in November based upon the assumption that both political party’s are, in this case, telling the truth.

"Trump vows to help China save Chinese jobs. Really."

I think the title of the article says it all. (I barely resisted the temptation to post this on the High Weirdness Board.)

I wonder what happened

I don’t know.

But, thinking is hard. Perhaps that’s why governments pass laws, and corporations write policies, so humans don’t have to do it.
