Syrians are Destroying Sculptures Because Allah
Dear everyone in the world: Just because your particular strain of god does not approve of something is no reason to take that thing away from the rest of us.
When you destroy a sculpture that is thousands of years old, you can’t just make a new one.
Unfortunately, this sculpture ended up in one of those places where the prevailing belief system says that historical significance is not a good enough reason to keep something around if there is a face on it.
So thanks, religious extremists, for taking something away from the rest of the world because you believe it will lead to eternal damnation! You guys are the best!
In what puts me at odds with a lot of my friends, I can’t be completely annoyed by the fact the state finally approved a new stadium for the Vikings. I’m annoyed, mind you, just not completely annoyed. As with most issues like this, I live in the grey area between “fuck yeah!” and “what the fuck?”
