Free Range Brain....

I kept telling people that Miley Cyrus was dangerous to their health...they wouldn't believe me.

The Canadians have finally built a weapon that I might be interested in owning. Apparently, they have constructed a "Shoe Cannon"* for use in a shoe chucking event during Dubya's visit to our northern neighbor. *No shrubbery was harmed in the making of this weaponry.

I am wondering if Pope Benedict has received his medical degree recently? Or maybe done some study on sexually transmitted diseases? Guess not. Catholic readers, please don't take this the wrong way...but um, what's the matter with you? How can you still be the part of a church that is so hopelessly antiquated? His Pope-ness was quoted today as saying that the distribution of condoms in Africa is not the solution for the AIDS epidemic and might even make the problem worse. Now, I'm no doctor - but from what I understand condoms can at least give you a chance at preventing transmission. So, that's a good thing right? Apparently not, according to Benedict. He claims that only the "traditional teachings of the church" can prevent the spread of AIDS. Now, you can argue that the idea of abstinence is a good thing in this fight and I agree...however, it's not exactly realistic (Thanks Bristol!). I would really like to know what would happen to a wife that refused her AIDS infected husband in Pope Benedict's world? I mean after all women are to be subservient to their husbands, and they have wifely duties...so I guess they should be forced to have sex, get AIDS and give birth to AIDS babies....yeah, great plan!
****BREAKING NEWS! CNN agrees with me! Okay, not with me in particular, but they do have a very good commentary on this issue.

Sorry, this post was kind of all over the place. Might need to hit up my favorite PA for some ritalin! (Hi Kathryn!)
