Suicide And The City
Via the Daily Mail, meet Gaza's "The Suicide Sisters" (picture at the link):

Clad head to toe in black and clutching sub-machine guns and automatic rifles, they vowed to die killing Israelis.

The women, at once sinister and yet awkward in their long dresses and munitions belts, say they will blow themselves up in attacks on Israeli soldiers if the Gaza Strip is invaded.

They gathered as Israel pounded the Strip with airstrikes yesterday - in response to weeks of rocket attacks from Palestinian fanatics.

"If the Israelis try to invade northern Gaza Strip, we will defend our land and our homes," one of the women declared as the group gathered at the Jabalya refugee camp north of Gaza City.

"We will turn our bodies into living bombs against the Israeli army," she added and demanded revenge against Israeli "crimes" carried out against the Palestinians.

I guess it's cheaper than liposuction. (Come on, we know it isn't exactly Angelina Fatima Jolie under there!)

At least in "Sex And The City," the girls got sex, cosmos, and shoes. The girls from Gaza blow themselves up, and for what? To protect a culture that treats them worse than dogs? Real bright, ladies.

Nice! I kep thinking of the old Warner Bros cartoons, with the sexy lady in the belly dancer outfit & when some gets too close she takes off the veil & it's all buck teeth & bad breath.

"Ooooo a ma-yyyy-an" & she chases the men down, on her skinny chicken legs.

That's it! I think my next science project is to develop a "suicide booth" similar to what's in the first episode of Futurama. Sounds like it'd be a good business in some parts of the world.



I had once thought that a "faux suicide booth" would be better, with a clientèle of emo college/high school kids. They go in, get CLOSE to committing suicide, have a photo taken, and then post it (after adding gothy after-effects) on myspace or livejournal...or maybe mail it to their parents as a cry for help and money. :p



Yes, I'm jaded.

Sometimes the small details like everyday eating can show people how certain practices are truly barbaric and will create conflict with the modern world.

Are people getting dumber, or are more dumb people being produced?

Or is news coverage of dumb people more efficient?

...or is it just me?

RedPretzel, I think it's the latter. People have always been stupid, they're just getting a lot more media coverage.

Actually we don't have much of a clue what's under there. Could be women - or small men, or store dummies.
