Jenn’s Actual Lesson
Did you know that Mother Theresa was canonized last Sunday? Proving once again that history can have very little to do with facts.
But before we get to all that, let’s have a beer!
This Week’s Beer
Sierra Nevada Big Foot Barleywine Ale
Suggested by Kyle the Napkin Pope

- BA Rating: 92
- Style: Barleywine
- ABV: 9.6%
- Aaron: 2

Kyle the Napkin Pope’s take on it:
I took two drinks and poured the rest of the bottle down the drain. I repeat: I poured perfectly good beer down the drain!! (Well, perfectly BAD beer) I think it tastes like rotten orange peels soaked in a mixture of rubbing alcohol with just a hint of pine-sol. I give it a smooth zero; it’s the worst beer I’ve tried so far.

Thanks for the birthday wishes.
Also, it’s Shea’s anniversary so send us some fucking iTunes reviews.

Christian Charity That Rejected Huge Donation From Atheists is Now “Extremely Behind on Funds” – bit.ly/2c4PrHT
- Matt Wilbourn, an atheist living in Muskogee, Oklahoma, tried donating $100 to Christian charity in Oklahoma, the Murrow Indian Children’s Home, but his money was rejected by the organization after they learned his contribution was made on behalf of a local atheist organization.
- Matt decided to be awesome by starting a GoFundMe and raised $28,280 which they also rejected
- Now we find out that the charity is terribly broke:
To all my amazing friends. As most of you know by now, I am working as the social services rep for the Murrow Indian Children’s Home. We are a faith-based, non-profit organization that relies solely on private donors and our annual Pow WOW. This is our only fundraising event of the year. It will be October 1st, starting at 2:00pm at the Bacone Student Life Center. We are extremely behind on funds and donated items for our silent auction this year. We are also short on vendors. I am asking for y’all to just consider donating something. Anything.

- Officials are now scrutinizing the adults in the girl’s life to see if they might have influenced her decision to engage in these “illicit relationships.”
- Ugandan government voted down a measure that would have made homosexuality punishable by death, current law still holds that anyone found engaging in sexual activities with members of the same sex could face life imprisonment.

Jazmine Howarth died after ‘hanging herself in a bid to say goodbye to dead best friend’ – dailym.ai/2chLh2X
- Jazmine Howarth died two weeks after her best friend Dionne Corbett
- Ms. Howarth wrote letters saying she wanted to meet friend ‘one last time’
- Her fiance found her hanged, but there were no signs she was intending to take her own life, inquest told
- Coroner records Ms. Howarth’s death was down to misadventure
‘The letter to her mom indicated that whatever she intended to do she thought she could control it. She was very much planning for the funeral, she was looking at reading, planning for that. I know nobody ever expects it but we weren’t – it wasn’t even on our radar.’
- Ms. Howarth’s fiance Brendan Cawley told the inquest: ’They classed each other as sisters, one wouldn’t do without the other. She broke down crying saying, “yeah but I promised I would go and get her”.
‘She said that she wanted to go and see her, go halfway to make sure she was alright. Two days before she died I woke up in the middle of the night and looked at Jazmine, she was writing on a piece of paper, I said: “what are you doing”. She said, “nothing it’s stupid”. I thought in my head that it must be something to do with Dionne.’
Iceland’s Government Will Uncover an Enchanted Rock to Appease the Elves. (Seriously.) – bit.ly/2chLAKZ
- In Iceland, where more than half the population believes that elves are at least possibly real and a quarter of the country says they’re probably or certainly real, the superstition is having an effect on construction projects.
- Because of a 2012 law to “protect Iceland’s elfin heritage,” the Iceland Road Administration is going to fix a situation in which a company that removed debris following a landslide accidentally covered up an enchanted rock.
- Sveinn Zophoniasson, who works for the Bass road construction company, told the paper that his woes began in August 2015 in Siglufjordur, close to the site of the so-called “elfin lady stone” that was covered with earth following efforts to clear a mudslide from a highway.
- After the landslide was cleared, the road was subsequently flooded and a colleague of Zophoniasson who came to clear the route was injured. Then industrial machinery began to fail and a journalist who came to cover the growing chaos fell into a mud pool and had to be pulled to safety.
- “Nobody even thought of the rock,” even though the area is regarded as a sacred place in local folklore, said Zophoniasson.
World’s oldest fossil discovered 4 yrs ago in Greenland – nyti.ms/2chKRcK
World’s oldest fossil discovered 4 yrs ago in Greenland, just made known to the world. Scientists feel confident it’s 3.7 billion years old. That’s less than a billion years younger than the time that Earth is said to have formed, 4.6 billion years ago, and 220 million years older than the fossils previously regarded to be the world’s most ancient.
Some scientists are skeptical about the news, as the Earth’s conditions would have been hellish and inhospitable 3.7 billion years ago. However, the fossils that were retrieved from Issue in Greenland have certain formations which are apparently indicators of microscopic organisms known as filthy-stromatolites.
If the new date proves true, then it could mean that life is able to survive in harsher conditions than previously believed, and thus the chance of life existing on other less hospitable worlds, such as Mars, becomes a great deal larger.
