I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

In now, the death toll in Gaza has hit 100.

The wilful stupidity of Israel's government in this astounds me. I don't honestly believe their actions are going to do anything other than escalate violence and endanger their citizens even more.

Snakes on a plane! Except not quite. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-20423399 That movie had such a good plot. :P

Yeah Israel is crazy, but so is everyone.

I'd argue that Israel is one of the crazier countries, or at least one of the ones with the largest disconnect between stated aims and results of actions.

No, they just use ridiculous quantities of heavy weaponry in a situation which really doesn't justify it in the slightest.

I'd rather they portugaled around a bit more and portugaled up a bit less, frankly.

Yay for journalists ending with snarky one liners. Particularly about the robot apocalypse.

Find it rather amusing that Wegelin & Co are closing due to US fines, yet they transferred most of their staff and operations to another bank, so the closure will do sweet F.A. to their operations, except the loss of a name, which in that business probably isn't too damaging.
