That's just the morgul knife used by the witch-king of Angmar. Elrond can deal with that.

London transport chiefs apologise to passengers after driver stops to pray

A MUSLIM bus driver stunned passengers when he stopped his vehicle and began praying in the aisle this week –with the engine still running.

The driver, according to this report, parked without warning – then used a fluorescent jacket as an improvised prayer mat. He took off his shoes, knelt down facing Mecca, and began to chant.

The prayer session held up the bus for more than five minutes with no-one able to get on or off. ...[continued]

*shakes head* dickhead. Unsurprisingly the original story is from the Daily Mail lol.

I was pleasantly surprised when reading the comments after the story (on the original Mail site) how little anti-Islamic vitriol there was. Usually their regular contributors are more fired up than that :P

Perhaps an effective countermeasure would be to set up an emergency atheist hotline. Then, if a driver starts praying, a freethinking passenger could call the hotline and have a loud, one-sided chat about evolution.
Any takers?

Maybe especially being Catholic, this AP headline seems more than a bit ironic:

Pope tells Irish bishops to be honest over scandal

You think the Pope should remind them not to steal as well?

He should remind them to keep their hands off the alter boys.

I've noticed a couple salesmen that use the verbal device, "to be honest with you" as a prelude to a true statement.

They should know that when you do that, it makes one wonder if everything else they've said was untrue.

She started young, too. She killed her brother with a shotgun when she was only 19. That incident was swept under the carpet. I guess she figured she'd get away with it again.

Yeah, isn't that weird. AND she smacked some woman in the head over a booster seat, and was suspected in an attempted mail bombing...

Any one of those things by themselves gives me reason to think wacko. I hope I didn't hurt her feelings.
