Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Another Reason for Teapot Control

Teapots can cause riots:

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - A mob fire-bombed the headquarters of a bizarre Malaysian cult built around a giant teapot on Monday, police and a fireman said, two weeks after the sect was raided by religious officials.

About 30-35 assailants armed with Molotov cocktails attacked the commune in the early morning, torching a car and the roof of a building and scorching the giant teapot itself, emergency services officials, local media and a lawyer for the sect said.

The sect, which believes the teapot has healing properties, is in Malaysia's northeast, a strongly Muslim area that has suddenly lost patience with the sect, headed by an elderly man who says he is God and owner of everything, his "Sky Kingdom".

Oh I don't know, IMHO, it's just a tempset in a teapot. Hardly a Teapot Dome Scandal. Sorry, couldn't help it.

PS: Thanks for linking to my blog. I didn't realize it earlier because you had not trackbacked. If you want help installing them, email me.
