When Gas Is Outlawed…

DailyMail — Breaking wind is set to be made a crime in an African country. The government of Malawi plan to punish persistent offenders ‘who foul the air’ in a bid to ‘mould responsible and disciplined citizens.’

I’m surprised that to see a complete lack of references to global warming in this article. Isn’t methane supposed to be a bigger contributor to the Earth’s temperature than the cycles of the sun itself?

But locals fear that pinning responsibility on the crime will be difficult – and may lead to miscarriages of justice as ‘criminals’ attempt to blame others for their offence. …

I can’t wait to see the Malawi high courts deciding upon which guiding principle to follow: “He who smelt it, dealt it” or “He who denied it, supplied it”.

    ” but I keep coming back to something a good friend of mine asked me the other day that I honestly didn’t have an answer for.

    She posed this question — which I invite you to answer in comments below: ”Have you ever heard anyone who didn’t vote for Obama in 2008 wish they could go back and vote for him now, after seeing him as president?”.”

    Cool, didya know I am one of his ‘good friends”?
