Regarding the idea of Sikhs not being required to wear a helmet, I’d think a dastar (turban) built over a helmet would be a top seller. Still, helmets are so unpopular among Sikhs that they are not required to wear a helmet in the Indian Army even during combat.
Also, I guess there must be no Sikhs doing space walks anytime soon, eh? LOL
And we can rule out Sikhs as well as far as sabotaging the Nord Stream Pipeline.

Regarding the birthrate article, I myself have to believe that even though religious people have more children, once those kids grow up and smell the coffee, many will become agnostics or atheists, even if they do so quietly and thus will join the rest of us in having fewer kids.
Does anyone here really believe that simply because religious fools have more babies, that those babies will necessarily turn into religious fools also having babies,l what with all the evidence science presents them with?
Regarding the son of dog picture, a GF of mine adopted a shelter god dog because his butt looked very similar to this classic picture. She called him Harold (as in Jesus Harold Christ). She often remarked that at least he did not spew his shit and it did no harm to pick it up 🙂
Related to weather predictors and reporters being targeted as causing heat waves… a week or two ago I got on a bus and was the only passenger. It’s unusual, but not rare. The driver took a moment to get out of her seat and ask me if she could ask a question, I said of course. She asked me what I thought about contrails. I took a few minutes to answer politely, and said “I’m honestly sure that they’re just water vapor.”
She thought for a second, and said “But have you noticed how many more there are, now?”. Yikes! That was going to take me longer to formulate an answer that might be plausible to her. But I was too late, another passenger came on, which ended the conversation. I felt sorry for her, while worrying seriously about how so many humans fall for this shit.
