100+ bombs go off in Nigeria
« on: January 21, 2012, 11:10:10 am »
In what is probably the largest simultaneous attack ever, over 100 bombs went off in Kano, the next-largest city of Nigeria, which according to the BBC as of this post killed ~150 people. Boko Haram, the Islamic group who've attacked Nigeria intermittently over the past few years, have continuously called on Christians to leave North Nigeria. This is, undoubtedly, an incredible crisis for Nigeria, and gives a glimpse into a country that is, essentially, cobbled together by former British colonies from dozens of otherwise disparate tribes.

Jesus.

Can you chuck us a link?
In paranoia I find genius / But the ice-dreams have come
with spiritless consequence / A hatchet has been hidden
between my eyes / A hatchet gift-wrapped in paranoia / A
wooden heart never bleeds / A wooden heart never bleeds,
yet inextricable thoughts still weave / Introspection
fabricated for battle / No time has been wasted
/ Neuroleptic seconds marry electroconvulsive hours / In
the cranial freezer, paranoia is the bastard and I
find genius Petrify / Paralyze

Since the OP is without a link, here's one from Reuters.

And here is a timeline of the events.

Aw hell...not again. And this, folks, is why colonization was NOT one of the better ideas in history.

Is it bad that I barely have any reaction to this? This crap doesn't surprise me anymore.
History is full of maniacs, my friend, men and women of intelect, highly perceptive individuals, who's brilliant minds know neither restraint nor taboo. Such notions are the devils we must slay for the edification of pony-kind. Even if said edification means violating the rules of decency, society, and rightousness itself.

Given historical content of fundamentalists, colony or not, stuff like this would still occour over anything from the trivial to the most serious.

I predict this will be a 10 second blurb on HLN and will be largely overshadowed by Nancy Grace's next I'm shootping my dance instructor Dancing With The Stars special.
Matthew 22:39 "And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." God's own "don't be a dick" rule.

Lithp and Vene really need to have some kind of confusing sexual encounter where Vene spends the entire session lovingly insulting Lithp's technique, then cums on his face, ruffles his hair, says, "You're all right, kid!", and then punches him in the nuts.
