JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU…

The head coach of the Iraqi National Karate team was slain yesterday. This supreme master of the marshal arts was bested by someone trained in the ancient western art of gun. Just goes to show you that there’s always a bigger fish in the sea, or at least one with a more effective weapon than all that chopping and kicking…

American officials have urged Iranians on both sides of the Iran post-presidential election rioting to back off on the violence. 13 people were killed in one day, or about 76 fewer human beings than are murdered in America every day. Just goes to show you that one nation’s shocking violent death toll is only another day at the office in another nation…

Speaking of post-election protests in Iran, reports are surfacing that the social networking tool Twitter played a large part in organizing protests and circumventing the ban on news reporting. It is already being called the Twitter Revolution. Wonder if they use OMG? Or maybe it’s OMA, for Oh My Allah?Probably not too many lol’s or emoticons being used when the tear gas and bullets start flying, but just maybe some comrades in arms have made a new bff in the heat of battle. Just goes to show you that even the dumbest ideas can come in handy every so often, as long as you don’t exceed 140 characters…

So now the Republican Congressmen are Twittering back and forth, comparing themselves to the Iranian rioters and accusing the American government of isolating them. Well, they can’t blame the administration, since it was the American people who voted them off the In-Power Island. Doesn’t stop these former power abusers from crying sour grapes all day every day. Just goes to show that some people never get it, never will and never get over themselves…

Steve Jobs, the multi-billionaire brain behind Apple computers and ipods, has just received a liver transplant. Now if they could only do something about giving him a new personality, maybe he’d be a semi-tolerable person. Just goes to show you that wealth and brains don’t guarantee health or happiness. Look at Bill Gates, who’s the richest guy on Earth but is still stuck being Bill Gates, possibly the dullest person ever.

Speaking of strange individuals, it looks like computer hackers are finally getting their due, sort of. The United States government and its military forces are forming new units dedicated to fighting computer sabotage and attacking enemy computer systems. Guess who they’ll be forced to hire and provide with security clearances? That’s right, all those weird geeks with the vampire complexions, Star Trek fixations and inflatable girlfriends who are really good at hacking into supposedly electronically secure data bases. Just goes to show you that maybe you should have been a lot nicer to the Nerd Herd back in high school now that they will have the official power to hack your identity into tiny little pieces…

Susan Boyle, the frumpy spinster who knocked everybody out with her great singing voice on the TV show “Britain’s Got Talent,” lost in the final voting to some American-style break dancers dressed as L.A. street thugs, the kind of act that went out of style around here just as it was getting off the ground about 20 years ago. The dance group is called Diversity and consists of ten attractive young dancers leaping around and contorting like there was an electric short circuit onstage that was sending strong jolts of current through them. Just goes to show you why music and video aren’t always a match made in heaven, and that young and attractive trumps forty-something and dowdy every time, no matter how much or how little talent anyone has…

The acclaimed scientific study that purported to identify the gene for depression has turned out to be faulty science that doesn’t stand up to scientific scrutiny. One result is the original team that did the lab work and published their findings is said to be suffering from extreme depression, indicating that there just might be an irony gene floating around in our DNA somewhere. Which just goes to show you that this whole identification of specific genes for specific personality traits has a very long way to go before these God-complex people can offer consumers custom-made babies.

In a startling outbreak of common sense, British schools are scrapping the grammar rule “i before e except after c.” There were always far too many exceptions to that weird rule, so many that it seems to have kicked in the depression gene in a lot of schoolchildren trying to figure out the crazy rules to English grammar. Just goes to show you that the British aren’t all as dumb as the break dancing fans over there.

The animal rights organization PETA is going ballistic at New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg for catching and killing a couple of thousand geese who were endangering human life at New York’s airports by getting sucked into jet engines and making the planes crash. They’re also peeved at President Obama for swatting a fly. Which just goes to show you how far up their asses some people have buried their heads. They might have earned some humanitarian points for themselves if they had volunteered to ship those geese to some of the 36,000 people who die of starvation every single day somewhere on this planet, but they’d never do that since human life holds little value to them, except maybe their own lives, such as they are.
