WTF of the quarter hour

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7772902.stm

Rhett strikes again.


"Our posturings, our imagined self-importance,
the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe,
are challenged by this point of pale light.
Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.
In our obscurity – in all this vastness – there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.
"

- Carl Sagan

Rhett does like face sucking. But I don't know if he'd be the guy...

i saw something on tv about that, it was a girl that gave her mom a kiss and she went deaf in that ear.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

After reading the article I glanced back up to the URL and fully expected to see The Onion...

Wow.

This can be the WTF of the next quarter hour (or maybe even half hour): http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/...Rk-4wD9546FT80

A mother that looks like she just stepped out of a Stanley Kubrick film, and a father who's look says "I want to touch you in your naughty place" sound like excellent parents to little "Adolf Hitler" and "Aryan Nation."

I'm sure there's absolutely no reason to do something like, say, call Child Protective Services.

Yeah, did you ever stop to think WHY no one else has it? Maybe it's because parents don't want to subject their child to a life of torment YOU DUMB ****!

@ the first WTF, well... it's worth the risk.

@ the second:

Quote:
The Campbells' other two children also have unusual names: JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell turns 2 in a few months and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell will be 1 in April.
What a happy family.

I wonder what the kid will be like on the playground when he gets to elementary school.

And the statement about doing it because he liked the name "Adolf Hitler" is bull. If that were true he wouldn't have given JoyceLynn the middle name "Aryan Nation" amirite?


People are so stupid.

See? Only a good parent would tolerate their son hanging out with the black kids. After all, it's the kids choice to make his own mistakes, right?

I'm going to reference this article to anyone who gives me crap about naming my daughter after the little girl from F.E.A.R. henceforth.

Lol, the parents can be as pissed off as they want, but if the cake lady doesn't want to write "Adolf Hitler Campbell" on a cake, well, then they can just go **** themselves and cry all they want. They have bigger problems than not getting a birthday cake, like how the kid is going to be a target by everyone for the rest of his life.

But most people don't name their children specifically after this one. And I have a strong distaste for the Spanish name, Alma. I'm thinking more along the lines of Scandinavian.

Probably the cake part...

why does obama's middle name have to be after another famous dictator?

Hussein is essentially coincidence. Adolf Hitler and Aryan Nation are blatant. If they don't actually support Nazism and really are just doing it for kicks, they really are stupid. :V

Follow up.

Quote:
"There are actually cases from early in the last century, like in the 1920s, about the rights of parents to teach their children a foreign language, like German, and to make other decisions like that for their own children, and the decision to name the child is clearly a very personal decision," Smolla said.
Teaching your child German ≠ naming your child Adolf Hitler.

Oh, and the father has a Nazi swastika tattoo.
