Things are going so well

Things are going so well in Iraq that some local religious leaders have issued a fatwa against consuming bottom-feeding carp fished from the Tigris river. You'd think this item might have made the Top ten religious idiots, but I have to admit a great deal of sympathy for the reason for this ruling.

Because of the sectarian violence in Iraq, a great number of bodies have been dumped in the Tigris river. Everyone ends up as someone else's lunch, and the Tigris has become an all-you-can-eat buffet for long pig.

Yeah, things could get bad if we leave Iraq.

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
