I read in the newspaper yesterday that a Navy nurse at Guantanamo, Cuba is refusing to participate in the force-feeding of an Islamic detainee who is on a hunger strike.
The concept of a hunger strike makes no sense to me. If it's some sort of protest, how does dying of self-induced starvation make you the big winner?
"Ha! I'm dead, but you're still alive. I WIN!"
That might make sense in the eastern mind, but to my western mind it just sounds stupid. If you're dumb enough to refuse the food offered you, especially since it's prepared in accordance with the sensitivities of your culture, well....then say "hey" to Allah for me.
So does this make me....what do the shrinks call it?...."passive aggressive"?
For the past several weeks all the sports news has been about nothing but the World Cup, ad nauseum. I kept watching all those string-bean soccer players and wondering how they would physically compare with American football players, or even more of a mis-match, with English rugby players?
Ever wonder how those rugby guys get those big, powerful legs?
It's due to off season training like this....doing ONE LEG squats with about a half-ton of weights. (That's pretty impressive. I personally couldn't roll that much weight downhill with a tail wind.)

I think I answered my own question. :)
In this morning's email I received from Living Social (like Groupon) an offer to take a discounted stripper class.
I forwarded it on to K, with an offer of a full scholarship. So far she hasn't said "no". *Ha! Not gonna happen* :)
