Sanding our assholes with 150 grit. Slowly. Lovingly.

Hmm, I guess it is a new age

Something seems strange about this.

Seems reasonable. I don't think there are even any travel restrictions on going there, unlike Cuba. My Persian friends seem to always be visiting family, though I've never queried them regarding the travel arrangement specifics; I assume they can't fly direct so they go into some part of Europe and then transfer flights or something.

Hm, this is pretty cool:

US citizens can just show up without a VISA even and the kind Iranians will grant you a 7 day travel VISA on the spot.

That's pretty cool. They seem to be more free than the US is.

But not for women! If you are a US born woman and marry an Iranian, then the Iranian government considers you to be an Iranian citizen the moment that occurs and does not recognize your US nationality. As soon as you arrive in Iran, your passport is confiscated and destroyed and you'll then need an Iranian passport and the permission of your husband to leave! Well that sucks.

You know I didn't realize Moore was into guns and was an expert marksman. Funny you have to turn to the Iranian press to figure these things out.

Man, I should visit Iran. It's very scenic and has some amazing architecture.

Yes I recall a Lifetime channel movie about an American woman who's Iranian husband kidnapped her kids. She went to Iran to get them back and they wouldn't let her back home to America. 

Two hours of tear-jerking fun. 

Must have been Sally Fields starring or something.

I recall my mother yelling at the TV "Bitch don't marry them Persians, then!  These white women sure are stupid. Damn!"

We all laughed and ate more popcorn.  Back then, it was this skillet thing with a round plastic bubble top  you plugged in.  Little oil, popcorn, but the round thing on top, pop, flip the thing over, eat popcorn out of the round thing.

Watch "Bowling for Columbine" again.  It's all in there.

The man in solitary confinement cell 3 is more free than the US.

Or you could watch one of his films. The one about the guns. Where he brings it up. Several times.
