Forget the Birthers; Here Come the DNAers

Because a birth certificate can be faked… or something:

Someone sent me a link to this article on the website of something called the Western Center for Journalism. I was hardly surprised, after I read the article, to find out that this organization was founded by Joseph Farah. They’re going beyond even birtherism and demanding Obama’s DNA:

This includes the determination of his actual identity, which requires genetic analysis. I started my investigation and analysis by deeming nearly every assertion as open to question, including the claimed identity of Mr. Obama’s parents. A certificate that a child was born to Stanley Ann Dunham and Barack Hussein Obama in Honolulu on 4 August 1961 might be true; but, assuming it’s true, it does not necessarily follow that Mr. Obama is that child. Whether he is or not requires genetic analysis.

Tuesday is really the most depressing day of the week

I’ve been saying this for years. Mondays I’m prepared for. It’s the start of a fresh new week. A week that will be the best ever. By Tuesday, that illusion is shattered and you still have 4 days to get through before the weekend.

Mondays may have long been thought of as miserable, but we’re more likely to feel down in the dumps on a Tuesday.

According to researchers from the London School of Economics, our moods are at their brightest on Saturday, with the weekend feelgood factor continuing into Sunday.

But while levels of contentment drop when the working week begins on Monday, it is on Tuesday that we reach our lowest ebb.
