    There are your basic two Muslim holidays. One is after the holy month of Ramadan, and the other one is during and right the pilgrimage of Haj. During this pilgrimage millions of Muslims from all around the world converge on the two holiest cities in all of Islam. While efforts are underway, constantly, to aleviate the crushing throng of people that gather at specific places to do very specific things in unison, death does indeed occur.

    Most of my friends who speak english as a second language complain that it is a confusing language. I tell them that it is efficient because it’s is a commercial language.

It’s perfectly fine to laugh at someone who is knowingly saying something stupid, like you gotta die because you don’t believe in my god, or I am descended from the gods chosen people (respect my jew gold), or I have the right to publicly murder my whore… Read more »
