If you were next to me when I was reading this week’s The Week, these are the parts I would have read to you out loud:
-Car deaths rise 18 percent on election days in The States. So maybe mail-in ballots this year.
-Ottawa is looking to pass a law that would protect people who apologize from being sued. More apologies for everyone!
-Poland may become the first country to chemically castrate pedophiles.
-A Zimbabwean soccer team took a ritual-cleansing dip in a crocodile-infested river, and one of them didn’t come back out.
-Hooman Majd, who has often translated for Iranian President Mahmud Amadenijad, says Amadenijad never said there are no gay people in Iran. Instead, he said Iran has no openly gay culture.
-Doctors are trying to help Erik Ramsey speak again. Ramsey’s body is completely paralyzed, and doctors have implanted wires in his brain that can read brain signals, which computers can then translate into speech. Rad.
