    I don't want to take this thread too off topic, but the whole notion of Ramadan really drives me nuts.

    This incident happened when a bunch of Muslims got together for dinner. During Ramadan. Which is supposed to be a "fast". Gimme a funking break. They go from dawn to dusk without eating anything for one month out of the year. I do that everyday.

    Ramadan is the biggest joke in Islam. They don't eat during the day, then they have a big feast every night. And those that don't want to fast during the day? All they have to do is tack another day onto the month, or, even better, just don't look out the window.

    What really kills me is that we're so civilized we wouldn't attack a mosque even if we had proof there's a nuclear weapon in it, but these people have no qualms about killing their own by poisoning the food associated with their own religious ritual. Nuts.
