Now that Judgement Day has come and gone, minus the whole Judgement thing, we now return you to your regularly scheduled crazy...
At the recent dedication of a dam in Iran, president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made statements about a plot to force Iran and other countries into a state of drought by use of high-tech sorcery to force clouds to empty out before they reach Iran.
That's right, people. The president of Iran thinks Western Europe is stealing its rain.
I said it when two Chinese villages went to war with each other over cloud theft a couple of years ago, and how can it not bear repeating- that's just blindingly fucking stupid. Ahmadinejad is an educated man- he has a Ph.D., for crying out loud, and he thinks they're out to steal his precipitation.
"Western countries have designed plans to cause drought in certain areas of the world, including Iran," were his exact words, which he based on reports on climate, "whose accuracy has been verified." Verified by who, the staff at the Weekly World News? This isn't a credible Bond movie plot, this is the plot of Superman III, for fuck's sake.
Also, typically, the second Ahmadinejad said this, it started raining. Maybe he should get together with Harold Camping for a speaking tour, since it is past the point of being painfully obvious that neither man has the slightest fucking clue what they are talking about. Rain or shine.
