Apparently in some states you are NOT allowed to run for public office if you are an athiest. I guess they think athiests don't have morals because they don't believe in god (yes, I know "god" is usually capitalized).
%#!$ What the hell? I certainly can't speak for other athiests but I, for one, have morals. I seriously don't get it. You don't need the threat of eternal damnation or the promise of a glorious afterlife to a moral person.

A couple in California got fined for having a brown lawn; they were just trying to conserve water because their area (Glendora, which is near Los Angeles) is currently facing a drought. They've also gotten in trouble for watering their lawn too so they're not sure what they're supposed to do.

Instead of bothering these people about something trivial you could, I don't know, solve your drought problem (they could get water from other parts of the state/country). They can just dig up the grass and that would kill 2 birds with 1 stone; they can't get fined for the grass if there just isn't any grass, right?

You're probably looking at the title and scratching your head. "How could that possibly be amusing?" Well, here's how:The Amusing Side of Flop by GloryAngel
While I don't have any control over my body, things DO move. Most of the time they don't, but every once in a while an arm or a leg is like "OK, I'm going over HERE now." It's most amusing when I have an itch. Sometimes when somebody is brushing my hair/scratching my head, my leg starts coming up and then slamming onto the bed. It's almost like when you're scratching an itch on a dog and their leg starts shaking.
The public can be fairly amusing too. People might think I would get offended, but sometimes it's just like "Really?". I'm pretty smart but they're so hung up on how I look that they assume I'm a moron. Children aren't bothered by me but adults tend to act like I'm the scum of the earth. Most of the tim
