Saudi Cleric doesn’t want women to drive   Leave a comment


.

A Saudi Sheikh, Salah al-Luhaydan, has said that women in  Saudi Arabia shouldn’t drive for health reasons. He says doing so could have  negative health effects on their ovaries.
 As Reuters recently reported, Saudi women activists have begun  a new campaign to try and lift the regressive ban on female drivers in the Saudi  kingdom. A petition this group posted on its website outlines the groups aims,  that being, “If the state refuses to lift this ban on women, we call on it to  offer citizens its justifications for the ban. The state is not a father or a  mother and the citizens are not children.”
 Al Arabiya in turn today had a report which tells us that Sheikh Salah al-Luhaydan  has given some bizarre medical explanation for why Saudi women shouldn’t drive.

He claims that driving “could have a  reverse physiological impact. Physiological science and functional medicine  studied this side [and discovered] that it automatically affects ovaries and  rolls up the pelvis. This why we find for women who continuously drive cars  their children are born with clinical disorders of varying degrees.”

Surely this cleric won’t allow women to do what’s in the picture below.  That could really bugger them up.

He went on to say that women should  accordingly put “the mind before the heart and emotion and look at this issue  with a realistic eye. The result of this is bad and they should wait and  consider the negativity.”

The Forks has a Beach!   Leave a comment

Visiting The Forks in downtown Winnipeg the other day I noticed the place now has a beach, well sort of.  The Forks is a gem and this just adds to the interesting ambience of the location.

The Worst Song Ever Recorded   1 comment


I was sitting in the washroom at work the other day and this cut started up.  Minute by Minute by the Doobie Brothers. This song reminds me of a bunch of pail dogs howling to the moon. It sounds like the lead singer is about to have hernia induced voice stress. This song is so bad it should be radioed to the Moon where it could bounce off craters!

Winnipeg Crime Stats Update   Leave a comment

All the categories are down.  Is Winnipeg getting safer? Try walking through Central Park at night, 50-50 chance you will get attacked. Try walking through Central Park with a case of beer at night, 95-5 chance you will be attacked and then robbed, of the beer that is.

The police river patrol are vigilante, checking for vagrants under the bridges. I have nothing against vagrants, but they are pesty.
