So Saturday is here and it’s time to announce the winners of the quiz. First of all I wanted to thank all of you who have showed interest. As you all know, winning is not important, it’s the taking part that counts. Oh who am I kidding? It’ all about winning isn’t it? Ok then I’ll just go ahead and announce the winners.
The first winner of this quiz was the Lost Dodo himself, Evil Asad, with the one and only correct answer. Kshshshshshsh (the sound of clapping)
The answer was of course Italians wanting to pull their troops out of Iraq because they thought white phosphorus bombs had been used in Falluja by the US. Apparently it’s ok to use bombs that when exploded can sever people’s heads or limbs clean off or rip open their stomachs, but it’s not ok to burn them. I don’t know about you, but I have personally been feeling a hell of a lot safer since I’ve learnt bout this.
So Asad was the winner with the only correct answer and he is going to receive the best prize. The second prize will go to Foulla because she was half way there. And the third prize will go to Aydin for his very wild guess because it actually made a lot of sense when I thought about it. So Asad, Foulla and Aydin, please email me your postal addresses so I can send you your prizes.
The rest of you, I’m sorry there aren’t going to be any prizes for you but if you are interested in receiving the Christmas cards, then you can email me your address and I will send one to you.

I personally kind of agree with the italians, IMHO there is a difference between killing someone and torturing them before they die, I think that's the reason napalm and white phosphorous were outlawed.
Shirin let me figure out my taiwan address and I'll send it to you :)

Congratulations again to all of you and Em, I’m glad you are happy with the outcome anyway :-)

Yes I understand what you’re saying Asad but the way I see it, there is no such a thing as a nice bomb and it simply doesn’t make sense to say you can go and kill or injure another human being by ripping them into pieces but not by burning them. Maybe it’s just me but I really can’t get my head around the fact that there are people in this world who allow themselves to pass laws on what are acceptable and unacceptable ways to kill innocent people!
Anyway hope your place is nice and send me your address when you’ve worked out what it is ;-)
