They have built a library for George II.

Apparently the thought is that if they build a library for the guy, and name it after him, maybe he’ll go inside, pick up let's reada book, and actually read it.

The last known book read by George II was The Pet Goat. A child helped him with it. This occurred as hijacked jetliners were ploughing into the World Trade Center.

The human brain is a strange and even terrifying thing. Almost any thought can get lodged in there.

Consider the brain of John Hinderaker. This is a person whose brain compelled him to write the following lines:

It must be very strange to be President Bush. A man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius, he can’t get anyone to notice. He is like a great painter or musician who is ahead of his time, and who unveils one masterpiece after another to a reception that, when not bored, is hostile.

Yes. Surely. When the histories come to be written, George II will be regarded as something like the Gesualdo of geopolitics—”nobleman, lutenist, composer, and murderer.”

    That John Hinderacker person is suffering from an extreme blood flow issue to his brain. He needs to be seen by a doctor immediately.

    Speaking of disturbing news for language and thought, your words have once again proven prophetic. I distinctly recall your frustration at people who insist on naming their children “Andru”, “Renae”, etc., and your declaration that you should change your name to something like dghgsjkhjjjkjskjd and just pronounce it any way you like.

    Well, such as thing has now occurred: http://uk.lifestyle.yahoo.com/blogs/yahoo-lifestyles/10-illegal-baby-names-194006397-3.html

    “Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116 – pronounced Albin”

      I saw another version of that story; yours is much better. Though the one I read indicated that New Zealand had prevented people from naming their children Anal. I figured rebels could flee Sweden and New Zealand for somewhere that is Free, and there name their children Anal Brfxxccxxmnpcccclllmmnprxvclmnckssqlbb11116 (Albin).

        There was a better version I had that listed various banned names in various countries but it wasn’t the one that had “Albin”.

        I was rather surprised at how many countries ban certain names. I’m glad that these poor children won’t have to suffer through being named “4Real” and “Anal”, but countries that force you to choose a gender-specific name are going too far. I guess I come down on the side of don’t-ban-any-names. Then I remember that I know someone who named their daughter “Awesome”.
