.00h20. Old But Not Yet Busted: HWEx (Harper's Weekly Extracts)
The U.S. military announced that July was the least deadly
of the past eight months for American troops in Iraq, with
only 75 soldiers killed. Seventy-six U.S. senators had
visited Iraq, and 3 percent of Americans approved of how
Congress was handling the war, which was costing the
United States and Great Britain more than $4,000 each
South of Baghdad, a handsome Sunni insurgent
nicknamed George Clooney was shot by members of his
own tribe and turned over to U.S. forces.
Presidential hopefuls Barack Obama and Rudy Giuliani
pledged to invade Pakistan, and Colorado Republican
Congressman Tom Tancredo said that, if elected president,
he would respond to terrorism on U.S. soil by bombing the
Muslim holy cities of Mecca and Medina.
... an online video game that allows players to torture
and kill corrupt officials and their children proved so
popular in China that the game's website crashed.
In India, where dung-smoke clouds were warming the upper
atmosphere, more than 1,000 people had been killed in
recent floods, and Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt was sentenced
to six years of "rigorous imprisonment" for possession
of illegal firearms. "Don't get perturbed," the judge
told Dutt, "for you have many years to go and work like
the 'Mackenna's Gold' actor Gregory Peck."
A New Zealand study found that vegans are disgusted
by sex with carnivores because meat-eaters are "composed
of the lives of others." Researchers at the University
of Texas identified 237 reasons that people have sex,
including "he smelled nice," and Bob Allen, a Florida
State Representative who sponsored a bill to curtail sex in
public parks, said that he recently offered oral sex to a
man in a park because he was afraid of black people.
A lost and distraught lovebird flew amok on a flight from
Bangkok to Manila, and ornithologists remained unsure as
to why some duck species have such long, swirly penises
or convoluted vaginas that spiral in the opposite direction
and feature pockets and culs-de-sac.
A study showed that penduline tits often abandon their
offspring in order to pursue sexual conquests, and scientists
found that a female mouse with a disabled nasal organ will
begin to exhibit masculine behavior: mounting other mice,
engaging in pelvic thrusting, and abandoning her young.
Another team of scientists had bred schizophrenic mice, and
Australian scientists said that rats can learn the risks of
Russia annexed the North Pole, Israelis fired apples, chilis,
corn, cucumbers, mangoes, and tomatoes into the Gaza Strip,
and China declared that Tibet's living Buddhas must seek
permission from the government before being reincarnated.
