This Made Me Laugh
The irrational whims of religions always make me laugh before feeling sad and angry at their stupidity and cruelty. "But it says so in the instruction book..." I shudder to think how much money has been wasted in this country on, for example, ensuring toilets don't face Mecca (given the Earth is a globe facing directly away is as bad as facing). But now it appears that some 200 mosques in Mecca are wrongly aligned. The good news is that it doesn't affect the validity of the prayers (because of the proximity to the receiver?) Next thing will be that bacon sandwiches and pork scratchings are ok.
