"BIBLE HUMOR", or "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Death Penalty Stats"

Click on the link above. Then scroll to the bottom, for such fascinating questions as "Why can't I own Canadians?"

Seriously, I found this while looking up death penalty statistics (oddly, if you type "death penalty statistics" into Google, the first result is some school in Alaska, which doesn't even HAVE the death penalty). Rachel, Dave, and I got a pretty good kick out of it. Then Mrs. Wyatt got a pretty good kick out of it (I swear, sometimes I don't think she's teaching us).

alex showed me that in math today. thought it was pretty damn funny. nothing like using strict interpretations of the bible against the people of the religious right with thier heads up thier arses. i hate it when someone tries to use bible passages to argue a point, and use the interpretation that was true for the crowd the book was originally written for. i like to think that perhaps society has evolved a bit since then. one example: circumcision ( not to be crude or anything) this tradition most likely started because of the fact that in a culture where water(and thereby cleanliness) was hard to procure, someone found that it was easier to keep himself clean down there by lopping off a bit. this little act helped end a long line of infections and reproductive problems that had been a threat before. however in today's soceity ( atleast in first and most second world countries) water is easy to come by and cleanliness is not as difficult as it was 1000 to 7000 years ago... so why do we keep lopping off that bit of ourselves? our culture doesnt need to anymore. wow... i just realized how far off topic i went... sorry... i will mark that one up to a fever striken brain...

WARNING MAY BE TOO MUCH INFORMATION

But then again for circumcision there is still a variety of infections that you can get, even if you do have good Hygene. There is one that is a major problem afecting a small but notable population of already mature men, where there is a tight ring around the tip, making it impossible for the skin to slip back durring and errection, a serious problem durring puberty and later in intercorse. The solution is not very pleasent, a circumsicion and a very long recoperation period (4 month) following durring a very conscience time in ones life (you remember it, because you're not an infant). So circumsision is not useless or out dated, it can only help. (unless they screw up the surgery, then watch out!)
