It’s interesting, things like this. What a lot of people (and some Muslims, as well) don’t get is that even the higher up Islamic leadership has said it is about the thought, and just because you didn’t do something right, doesn’t mean you aren’t going to heaven. It is very similar to the way Christianity is thought of as of now.

In Buddhism, this is considered neutral karma. If the intent is there, that's all that matters. There's no negative karma if there was no intent to cause harm or flout the rules.

Just wanna point out that praying in the wrong direction without knowing doesn’t nullify your prayers.

Aw, I think Allah will understand. He'll forget allah bout it soon enough

"CBS News 10" is not actually CBS News.

If you look at the Whois Data that website was registered October 5th, 2018. Not even 2 weeks ago. Registered with "NameCheapInc"

Also the local CBS affiliate in Iowa City / Cedar Rapids is Channel 2, not 10

That’s a fake news website

The ‘Donald Daters’ Trump Dating App Exposed Its Users’ Data

The ‘Donald Daters’ Trump Dating App Exposed Its Users’ Data

Personality questions on users’ profiles asks them what they are “triggered” by, and numerous things throughout the app are misspelled or nonfunctional. The app also only lets users look at 10 people before locking them out and asking them to pay the $29.99 monthly fee. Motherboard cannot rule out that this is a not-so-elaborate scheme to own Republicans.

Somewhere out there, someone is definitely laughing their ass off and figuring out how to spend their $300.

Despite stating preferences as “looking for women in New York City,” Motherboard was shown exclusively men who claimed to live in other parts of the country.

“From all appearances, not many people are using this app. One message even reads “Yes, but I don’t see literally anybody on this app… What did I just pay for?”

Sounds like only a handful of people knew this existed 😛

"GOD, MOOOOOMMMM!" - Julian Assange

To be fair this is the least my wife expects of me, and I pay for the internet.

To be fair the cat did not apply for asylum

I like how this comment is almost clever.

New York City Goes an Entire Weekend With No Shootings for the First Time in Decades

New York City Goes an Entire Weekend With No Shootings for the First Time in Decades

No shootings that they know of

Very cool, NYC!

Still cool of them to use silencers. Some of us gotta go to work in the morning.

Edit: "Suppressors dont work that way" = "I don't know how a joke works"

Is it stabbing weekend already? I thought that was in the spring.

Saudi Arabia: Court rules woman cannot marry man who plays musical instrument

Saudi Arabia: Court rules woman cannot marry man who plays musical instrument

Said Saudi Judicial spokesman: “I am sure Western media will focus on the fact that women aren’t allowed to marry without permission instead of pointing out that in the end, no one got tortured and dismembered as of this moment.”

Well, they see the glass as half full, Western media sees it as half empty. In reality, however, if there is room left over for torture, you need a smaller glass.

And these childish, ignorant, violent wackos are our “allies” despite having funded and manned 9/11. With friends like these....

Honestly, I'm not even surprised. Atleast he can find a small violin to play himself.

First Lady Melania Trump Says She Is 'the Most Bullied Person in the World'

First Lady Melania Trump Says She Is 'the Most Bullied Person in the World'

I dont really care. Do you?

Edit: To all of you who missed the point, THIS is what this woman decided to wear on her way to visit caged children seperated from their parents.

Michelle Obama had the most vile, racist shit said about her and not once did she complain.

This entire administration is so desperate to be the victim, it's exhausting.

Donald's gonna be pissed when he finds out she claimed she's more bullied than him.

Maybe by her husband I guess

A £40k Girl With A Balloon print is now worth just £1 after owner copied Banksy by shredding it ‘to increase value’

A £40k Girl With A Balloon print is now worth just £1 after owner copied Banksy by shredding it ‘...

The rule in the art world is be first. First person to put a toilet in an art gallery or shred their own work is a genius, the second is a fool.

I dunno I think this is a bit great. Because if anything this dude, an idiot, has even more embodied the satiric point Banksy was aiming at.

Shredding your art and it increases its value:

Capitalism: 1; Banksy: 0

Inspiring some goober to shred theirs, destroying its value:

Capitalism: 1; Banksy: 1

Took me a while to understand this. This print is a completely different one from the famous piece that was shredded during the auction. The owner of said print decided to shred it themselves not knowing the significance of why the original was shredded in the first place.

Obese Tourists Crippling Donkeys On Greek Island, Activists Claim

Obese Tourists Crippling Donkeys On Greek Island, Activists Claim

I think the obvious solution here is to have large weather balloons attached to any obese travelers, lessening their load on the donkeys.

Seems they could just add a scale and weight limit.

They easily could but fewer tourists that ride donkeys = less money. It's also possible that obese tourists are the ones who use the donkeys most often because they aren't fit enough to climb stairs.

True. But broken donkeys = less rides = less money.

And animal rights protests could also be bad for business.

Transgender student denied entry to both locker rooms during safety drill

Transgender student denied entry to both locker rooms during safety drill

Does it really matter which locker room someone is in for a safety drill? If I were a student at this school and a real active shooter situation was going down, would I (as a man) be denied entry to the women’s locker room and be left to die if I somehow couldn’t make it to the men’s locker room?

In America children's sexuality is far more important to protect than their lives.

Not to mention they waste precious seconds trying to sort these kids. Even if, during a real situation, there were kids changing in there, it would be idiotic to try to sort the students.

After some additional debate, she was made to sit in the locker room hall way, by the door away from her peers.

Because if an active shooter enters the school the top priority should be keeping boys and girls out of the same bathroom. /s
