an ‘I have lost all hope in humanity’ news link dump.

June 17, 2010

not much to say in particular but here are some recent eye-catching headlines that may or may not have received some additional commentary from yours truly.

“BP to drill giant middle finger into the Rockies; mourning period for Gulf of Mexico practically non-existent” <http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2010/06/15/bc-bp-drilling-rocky-mountains.html>

(cf. http://www.ifitwasmyhome.com/ for size of oil spill in reference to [ie. smack-dab on top of] your hometown and/or current location – funtastic!)

“‘Female genital cutting’ university studies done on girls aged 5-6 to ensure so-called ‘normal’ sexual development; ethics approval board allegedly horrified into silence because how the hell else was this able to get past them?”  <http://slog.thestranger.com/slog/archives/2010/06/16/female-genital-mutilation-at-cornell-university>

“Gay-bashing occurs in Vancouver; society collectively bands together to shrug its shoulders” <http://www.theprovince.com/sports/amateur/university/Thugs+beat+punch+bite+Vancouver+couple/3150119/story.html>

[edit] – in hindsight this seems to have been a little too depressing, so have some of this, and maybe a little of this for good measure.
