    It's honestly the stupidest thing I've ever read.

    I can't believe the comments in that piece offer more intelligent reading than the article itself. Not by much, mind, but still better.

    I honestly couldn't read it, I just saw words, random words in no discernible order to make sense man or beast. And the result was a pile of word shit. Coincidence?

    This is where he blows the whole thing open.

    About fifteen years ago an odd idea popped into my head. Google was just a gurgling infant. But I happened to have a sturdy Brittanica nearby and I pulled out a dusty volume and quickly discovered the diameter of the sun. It is precisely 864,576 miles. The diameter of the moon was listed at 2,159 miles. I then looked up the distance from Earth to the sun, which varies slightly, but is generally given as 93 million miles. And then I found the distance from Earth to the moon. That varies slightly too, so the average is given as 239,000 miles.

    Armed with these four figures, I did some simple math. I divided the sunís diameter (864,576) by the moonís (2,159) and got 400.452. If my strange hunch was correct, dividing the distance from the Earth to the sun (93,000,000) by the distance from the Earth to the moon (239,000) should give me something similar. It certainly did. My calculations yielded 389.121. And there it was. I stared at the numbers, amazed. Was the correlation in these ratios mere coincidence?

    Of course what this all meant was simply that these immemorially ancient and vast objects, though as different in size as a single BB and a super gigantic beach ball ó one that was over six feet in diameter ó would from our perspective here on Earth seem almost precisely the same size. So if they ever just happened to align in the sky, they would match up perfectly. Not almost perfectly. But perfectly, and bizarrely so.
    Irrefutable proof that there is a God, the one God and he resides in heaven and watches over us. Hallelujah and amen.

    I was watching a eh specialist film, and I noticed that Americans can't wank properly because most of them don't seem to have a foreskin due to circumcision.

    This might be why they have all the pent-up anger and gun obsession.

    This theory also explains the whole Middle East situation.

    Could be a Nobel Peace Prize in this, just need some more research.

    It's why US males go through an average of 8 gallons of hand cream a year.

    That is the best thing. "How can they hate someone they've never met and don't know anything about?"

    I dunno dude, you're the white supremacist, you tell us!

    Aw, poor guy. Perhaps don't attend Nazi rallies if you want society to accept you into its institutions.

    Channeling the onion sounds like a French gay sex maneuver.

    Totally loving the irony of a man with Fuentes as a surname being against immigration.

    Actually I'm guessing when he means immigration, he means Brown people immigration?

    Not really, we see similar things here. It's a case of pulling up the drawbridge.

    Half of my family are racist, and we're 1st generation immigrants.

    True, but then the guy refers to the march as a way of protecting the white race. I just don't really see Fuentes as a typical white name for your average white supremacist.

    Another car driven into a crowd of people protesting. Thankfully this time he appears to have bottled it, so only minor injuries:

    I look forward to Trumps tweet suggesting that the guy was just driving his car and if people hadn't been illegally congregating there wouldnt have been an issue.

    Well if he did, he would at least be in line with the rest of the GOP

    So have we done the cop abusing and handcuffing the nurse cause she didn't draw a blood sample from an unconscious man?

    Or the other cop who was caught on his own dash cam saying "we only kill black people" to a white woman he pulled over when she was scared to go for her phone?

    Yeah I saw those, I've always wondered why the police force seems to attract at times the worst of humanity. Of course I'm not saying that all police officers are the same, but in America there seems to be an overabundance of trigger happy, racist arseholes with God complexes. Ohhhhhh wait hang on...

    Yeah my aunt divorced my uncle 20 odd years ago and he still stalks the poor woman.

    He's a nasty, racist abusive alcoholic and just generally a turd of a person.
