For people with unlucky facial features
If your cheeks are not plump, money will slip away. Big eyes and cherry lips bring happiness and love. Dark spots under the eyes mean loneliness in the future. In South Korea, where cosmetic surgery and fortune-telling are national obsessions, it was inevitable that the two would eventually combine.

No word on what kind of fortune fake boobies bring.

Our best friend, once again
Libyan opposition leaders criticized the renewal of U.S.-Libyan diplomatic relations, saying it would hurt "efforts to secure basic freedoms" in Libya.

So, now that we're friends with Ghaddafi again, are we going to press for democratic reforms or are we just going to be content he's not killing Americans right now and leave it at that?

Mr Goma, you're a star
Yesterday, Frank posted about the BBC broadcasting a live interview with a cabdriver whom they had mistaken for the editor of an Internet publication. Today BBC apologized for the mix-up and Guy Kewney, the actual editor who watched the mishap while he was waiting to be interviewed, posted on his site more information about the incident:
The mystery guest has been discovered to be a Congo-born IT specialist named Guy Goma, who was at the BBC that day waiting to apply for a job and thought the on-air bit was an initiation gag.
I hope the BBC hires Mr Goma and with a high salary too. He can sure wing his way through a mess and do it graciously and with a smile on his face.

A thimbleful of cognac to cba, for the update.

zorkmidden in Discarded Lies:
What sacrifice?
I saw this headline, Memorial honours sacrifice of conscientious objectors, and I thought what sacrifice? The people who fight in a war make the sacrifice not the ones who object the war. On the one hand I understand that not everyone is cut out to be a soldier, but on the other, I don't like to see the word sacrifice used inappropriately. And I believe that most soldiers who died in wars weren't there because they loved wars, they gave their lives for their countries.

The 'In' Issue for Presbyterians
Two years ago, the Presbyterian Church USA passed a resolution calling for “phased, selective divestment in multinational corporations operating in Israel.” At the upcoming Presbyterian conference, the divestment issue is about to erupt again. I just hope the leaders of this church come to their senses and realize how anti-Christian their behavior is.
What happens there will have a lasting impact on the already strained relationship between Jews and the entire Protestant community. The estimated 3 million Presbyterians in the United States influence the other white mainline Protestant churches in this country, whose members number more than 20 million.

Presbyterians are considered the “conscience” and reason of the Protestant community, serving as something of a “swing vote,” Rudin said.

Indeed, after the Presbyterians’ 2004 resolution on divestment, several other Protestant communities took up the issue. The Methodists decided to study their options; the United Church of Christ, also known as the Congregationalists, endorsed divestment but did not create a process to enact it; the Episcopalians considered but rejected divestment; and the Lutherans rejected a divestment resolution, and instead passed a resolution to invest in cooperative ventures between Israelis and Palestinians.

What will happen in Birmingham is anyone’s guess, though both Presbyterian and Jewish officials predict that no immediate action on divestment will be taken.

The Baklava War
First they took Constantinople and I didn't say anything because I didn't live in Constantinople. Then they made my ancestors live in slavery for 500 years and again I didn't say anything because my ancestors were often mean to me.

But now the bloodthirsty Turk has come after baklava, and it's time for me to make my stand. I am drawing my line in the sand. Here, and no more, Turkey!

And the coffee is Greek, not Turkish.
