All In a Name

From the Malaysian press:

Suspected serial rapist and killer Rabidin Satir, 42, charged in court

If the details of his crimes doesn't sound like that of a rabid satyr then I don't know what does. OTOH, it's highly unlikely that he speaks English, much less know what a satyr is.

Malaysia has the death penalty for crimes of this sort. Good for us.

Women's Logic

The Australian feminist Sheila... sorry Irina Dunn coined the phrase "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle", a phrase that has been taken up a whole generation of feminists, empowered grrrrls and wishful (wistful?) manginas. 

Dunn herself was not immune to bad-boy induced gina tingles and was married to a convicted bank robber, whom I fervently hope ditched her for some hotter, tighter (just a fond desire for real life to occasionally exhibit some sort of artistic/aesthetic/moral symmetry).

Anyway, what about Mz. Dunn's one claim to immortality? Do women really need a man like a fish needs a bicycle? Not according to the Google search prompt which, I would like to emphasize, is based on the most popular search requests (among other things). Typing in "When will he" elicits the following options:

Google never lies but embittered feminists? Game, set, go make me a sammich.
