Total Eclipse of the Brain

In Karnataka the other day, as the world was plunged into darkness by a solar eclipse, Indian parents buried their children with disabilities up to their necks in mud, on a river bank.

Doing so at the time of eclipse is apparently not child abuse, but rather will heal the children of their ailments. Oh, that's a relief then.

In completely unrelated news, yesterday I immersed my elbows into a vat of room-temperature peanut butter for several hours, whilst whistling the theme from M*A*S*H. Doing so on the 23rd day, of the month of July sustains my super-powers.
