Spy cameras and cow poop mountains
South Australian state Greens MP Kris Hanna said cameras are legal in workplace toilets and changing rooms -- and that he would move to tighten laws and ban them those private places. His comments followed revelations that a camera was discovered in a women's shower at an Adelaide boarding school.
The State Government declared the hidden camera "sickening and perverted" but said it was not against Aussie laws. Now aren't you glad you live in the good ol' U.S. of A.?
In other world news: As part of a religious rite, Hindu worshippers build mounds of cow dung -- some several feet high -- to symbolize a mythical mountain that Krishna raised to save devotees from an ancient flood.
Celebrators actually compete to see who builds the biggest cow flop pile, or Goverdhan. This year, in the Belanganj area, the colonies of Balkeshwar and Pathwari had their own 20-foot tall Goverdhans, for which tons of cow shit was carted in for devotees to pat by hand into shape. The trans-Yamuna area had a 12-foot tall heap of crap that was judged slightly better built that the other mounds of poop.
After reverentially molding the mountains of cow dung into shape, the worshippers anoint the heaps with milk, curd, and honey, then circle of the mounds chanting religious hymns. After completing the religious ceremonies, the more affluent residents organize community dinners called chappan bhog where they enjoy up to 56 dishes that were favorites of Lord Krishna.
