    Re: flying squid:
    I’ve seen faker pictures in my time, but it’s been awhile. Surely this is a joke, and not just a mistake?

    No, it’s not a fake. Google ‘flying squid’ .

    Fundies is fundies, no matter what religion they are.
    Fundamentalist Christians have more in common with the Wahhabists, probably, than their more moderate or liberal coreligionists (who, don’t get me wrong, I still think are crazy. Religion in general is ridiculous). And ultra-orthodox Jews have more in common with the ilk of Jerry Falwell than reform Jews.
    You’d think the Hasids and the Wahhabs would be friends.
