Alleged friend of magicians Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says he knows why Iran has suffered through several droughts.
“Western countries have designed plans to cause drought in certain areas of the world, including Iran,” Mr Ahmadinejad said in the city of Arak in Markazi province.
“According to reports on climate, whose accuracy has been verified, European countries are using special equipment to force clouds to dump” their water on their continent, he said.
By doing so, “they prevent rain clouds from reaching regional countries, including Iran,” Mr Ahmadinejad charged.

But surely they had killed him off. This is the way it always worked. A lesser person could not have survived the first few minutes of the onslaught. But out of the billowing smoke and dust of tweets and trivia emerged Gingrich, once again ready to lead those who won’t be intimated by the political elite and are ready to take on the challenges America faces.

Stephen Hawking says:
I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.
The only slight difference I have with this view is that there is some spark of identity (for lack of a better word) in me that I don’t think exists in a computer. That is, there’s something that makes me see out of my own eyes rather than someone else’s (or out of a computer’s eyes). I can’t even be sure that other people have it, though I assume they do.
Of course, without my brain, such a thing wouldn’t amount to much.
God is just like some douche minister who kills a bunch of poor (but cheap!) fish to freak children out. Lesson learned.
If only those kids had moved faster. More could’ve been saved…
