Women and other people

Confusion reigned in my neck o' the woods for the last two days. Saturday, April 01 for professional and personal exhaution motives I only superficially browsed the web. Yesterday, thinking I had recuperated, I confidently not only proceeded to give it a monday title, entirely convinced that it WAS Monday, but passed on the April Fool's Google romance link, albeit to my credit, with a question mark. Ah well. We'll see if things are back to normal. Being a working stiff and a blogger are sometimes somewhat incompatible. Extreme fatigue just seems to take over not only body but mind as well.

How much does the universe weight? Apparently it's critical density we must talk about here. And no one is sure what that point is exactly, therefore we do not know whether there is sufficient critical density for the universe to turn back into itself creating the Big Crunch or whether it will go on exanding forever. Wow! Science fiction to this liberal arts major here! Interesting nevertheless!

"
The study defined 'heavy' use as more than 2,000 total hours, or approximately one hour of use per workday for 10 years." Yes, the Swedes have found a correlation between cell phone use and brain tumors. And their defined use is not all that much!

The
demographic changes ocurring in cities all over the country were "predicted" by Nixon? Is it all a plan like some say. Blacks are moving out of the big city to the South where they can afford to live. Cities like Washington DC and New York, 30 years ago have been on the gentrification path for the last 20 years. Old ghettoes have resurfaced as hip places for YUPPIES and totally out of the pocket range of families of more modest means. How will the Southeren part of the US come out of this. Retirees and lower income families make for an interesting demographic composition, but one rife with potential traps.

From
Br. Batleby:
"Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.”—Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD)

Sen
Santorum of Savage Love fame has declared that Europe is dying. I wouldn't be so sure.

The
Guardian on feminist bloggers, which I consider myself to be.

On female circumcision or clirodectomy om
Memri TV
Dr. Muhammad Wahdan: Reality is a mistake, we must rectify it.
In Egypt we have four and a half million spinsters. The definition of a spinster is a woman who has reached 30, without ever receiving a marriage proposal. We have a spinster problem in the Arab world, and the last thing we want is for them to be sexually aroused. Circumcision of the girls who need it makes them chaste, dignified, and pure.
The resulting fear and paranoia of women's sexuality leads to this:
SAUDI Arabia's religious police are reported to have forced schoolgirls back into a blazing building because they were not wearing Islamic headscarves and black robes. (2002) 15 girls died as a result of this.
Dr. Sanity makes a clear point of the madness of Islamic policy towards women. It's pathological to be so obsessed with female sexuality.
