The shitty, shitty winter North America got this year? One reason might be Chinese smog. Thanks, China.

The Great Lakes are still over half frozen, much of the northeast got snow today, in the middle of April, and the last few months of winter were particularly bad this year, especially through the upper midwest and northeast US. All this in the middle of being told that the planet is getting warmer and warmer. Apparently, a good deal of our awful winter can be blamed on the insane amounts of pollution in east and south Asia. Thanks, guys.

Photos of Pittsburgh in 1940 before smoke control laws
Some people thing Pittsburgh is kinda dirty now, but it’s not even close to what it used to be, before smoke and pollution control laws went into effect in 1941. Before that, it was a city covered and choked in industrial smoke that would make today’s Beijing look like an environmental paradise.

Indian Man Exiled for Stopping People from Drinking “Religious” Sewage Water.

Senal Edamaruku is being charged with blasphemy for revealing that the “tears” that were streaming from a statue of Jesus, which followers were drinking in hopes of having their ailments cured, was in fact sewage from a leaking pipe. As a result, he has been exiled from his homeland and is only permitted to return if he apologizes to the sewage-drinkers he offended. 

So… umm… yeah, my mind is overloaded with the jokes I could make. Where to begin?
