Well, I think not acknowledging her record cuz her hands and face is visible is utterly moronic. It's one of the things I dislike about religion. People let shit written thousands of years ago, under very different times socially, technologically, economically etc. dictate how they live their lives today. Same way how I think letting religion dictate what or when you eat to be stupid.

Well, put it this way. There are 2 groups of people who watch NASCAR. The first group watches it for the racing. The second group watches if for the crashes and accidents. If I were a betting man, I'd say Jez would probably belong to group two (if he were actually one of those people who enjoys watching the left-turn jockeys in action that is).

(I understand driving a NASCAR vehicle isn't easy... but watching someone drive in an oval for a couple hundred laps is boring as fuck IMO)

No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.

This is actually retarded.

The liberal fucktards that are ruining western culture have even started to bitch about equality in a third world country governed and inhabited by savages.

Lets all pretend we're outraged, jump up and down, do angry fist shakes and scream for an invasion of Iran...

Who. Gives. A. Fuck.

Lol... no. No it doesn't. The only thing that it has to do with Judaism is that Islam explicitly states that its followers should slaughter the Jews "behind whatever rock they may be found." This was "revealed" to Mohammad by the angel Gabriel following the withdraw of Jewish support of him in Medina after we realized what a homicidal lunatic he was, and his subsequent brutal attack and sack of the Jewish town, Khyber. And the extent it has in common with Christianity is that Mohammad acknowledges Jesus as a prophet, but not the -final- and most favored prophet (i.e, Mohammad, who is the only one who actually matters to Islam), of God.

I am very educated on the subject of Islam. Mohammad's writings are the psychotic ramblings of a seventh-century warlord using religion to maintain power. There's no "love thy neighbor" in the Koran. Islam literally means "submission" in Arabic. The Koran (and the Hadith) both demand that the followers of Islam spread the religion by the sword-- those conquered have the choice to convert, to die, or to pay the tax and live as a second class citizen, which the Muslims then reserve the right to execute at their leisure if it suits them.

There is no "modern anachronism" of Islam. The Koran is the "final revelation" from God, and any change to the methodology or the faith itself is apostasy-- the Koran and Hadith both explicitly condemn apostates unconditionally to death. Islam is the same today as it was when Mohammad conquered what is now Saudi Arabia.

To be perfectly honest, why should he; or I for that matter? A woman in an Islamic country is being denied recognition for swimming very far with a good amount of weight for a stupid reason.

Why should I care? It doesn't affect me, I will never meet her nor will I ever attempt to surpass such a thing. Don't get me wrong, it sucks for her but I'm firmly with Jez on this.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Well, to me it's way simpler than any notion of equality... taking away someone's achievement because their hands and face were visible is fucking moronic. Whether it be a male, female... and whether it happens in Iran, here or the US or UK. Doesn't matter where happens... it's idiotic. Do I care about this particular case that much? Not really. To me it's just an example of the stupid shit a lot of people do in the name of religion.

Is it wrong that picturing your avatar doing exactly this caused me some lulz?

I'm here and there on it. Well done to her for doing so well, especially in light of her clothing. It's sad the world's still so retarded that it's pulling crap like this, but I'm not going to start doing Jez's monkey outrage dance over it. It happens, so be it. Let their culture sort itself out or die out. If they come over to blow us up, blow up the blower-uppers in return. Then we can do Jez's monkey outrage dance.

It's Iran. Do we need to discuss any more?
