High tech Indian airways

First, just relax and get ready for some fun. Two options. Read this story or just read this quick passage and then cry.

"Officials at Nepal's state-run airline have sacrificed two goats to appease Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god, following technical problems with one of its Boeing 757 aircraft, the carrier said Tuesday."

Yes folks, you read that right. Fuck the screwdrivers and the mechanics, bring me some goat blood and let's have us a good ol' fashioned sacrifice.

Now do you see why I strive for skepticism and critical thinking? Do you see how devout adherence to religious dogma really is dangerous? Would you rather the guy at the body shop use some rubber mallets to bang the dent out of your car or would it be just fine if he prayed for divine intervention to fix the fender?

Please people, think.
