  4. Holy Quran Experiment

    Wonder what the result would be in the states, maybe the fundamentalists would recognise the quotes? Course as an atheist I know that the koran and the old testament are surprisingly similar although it's some years since I sat down and read them.

  7. The Syrian Debate

    Without taking sides for or against taking action because, quite frankly, I don't know any more. However, I am currently watching the debate on BBC but I find myself wondering if such a debate is likely to change any MPs minds regarding whether they will vote for or against. The only input I have...

  8. Paris

    This is pretty bizarre. My heart goes out to my friends in Paris, and to the members of FG who live in France. May this be resoled quickly. "France has declared a national state of emergency and has closed its borders after more than 120 people were killed in gun and bomb attacks in Paris." ...

  10. Saeed Jaffrey, RIP

    What an actor, I'm sorry to hear of his death. He had a flair for comedy as well as a wonderful screen presence in dramatic roles. He was an asset wherever he appeared, I enjoyed seeing him perform.

  12. GI Joe Cop - What a Guy

    This police officer, known to those familiar with him, as GI Joe, was truly something else, and a sad example of what has become of too many American police force members. Not for the the money he stole or for the carefully staged and elaborate suicide web he weaved, but rather, for his history as...

  15. The Afghan earthquake

    Not a huge earthquake, but certainly magnitude 7.7 can be lethal. It will be interesting to see, given that the country is awash with fully equipped NATO troops and all their transport already in place, whether armed forces really are capable of providing timely humanitarian aid. It's not often...

  17. If you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise

    Ten percent of Florida's wild bear population is being killed by hunters this week. Bears are not safe to live near, apparently, being rather like Floridians in this respect. The Wildlife Commission's advice on encountering black bears is to remain standing upright and speak to the bear in a calm,...

  20. What a witless bunch of incompetents

    I refer, for the sake of clarity, to the entire House of Saud. I note the death this week of "at least 717 people" "injured in a stampede near the holy city of Mecca", after which the Saudi Minister of Health is reported as saying "this is God's will" while blaming the dead for "not following...
