New Age terrorists develop homeopathic bomb | NewsBiscuit: “The world has been placed on a heightened security alert following reports that New Age terrorists have harnessed the power of homeopathy for evil. ‘Homeopathic weapons represent a major threat to world peace,’ said President Barack Obama, ‘they might not cause any actual damage but the placebo effect could be quite devastating.’ The H2O-bomb has been developed by the radical New Age group, The Axis of Aquarius. In a taped message to the world, their leader, Professor Hubert Pennington, said: ‘For too long the New Age movement has been dismissed as a bunch of beardy weirdy cranks and charlatans. But now we have weapons-grade homeopathy and we demand to be taken seriously.’ Homeopathic bombs are comprised of 99.9% water but contain the merest trace element of explosive. The solution is then repeatedly diluted so as to leave only the memory of the explosive in the water molecules. According to the laws of homeopathy, the more that the water is diluted, the more powerful the bomb becomes. ‘It was only a matter of time before these people got hold of the material that they needed to make these bombs,’ said former UN weapons inspector, Hans Blix, ‘The world is a much more dangerous place with the advent of these Weapons of Mass Dilution.’ ‘A homeopathic attack could bring entire cities to a standstill,’ said BBC Security Correspondent, Frank Gardner, ‘Large numbers of people could easily become convinced that they have been killed and hospitals would be unable to cope with the massive influx of the ‘walking suggestible’.’ The severity of the situation has already resulted in the New Age terror threat level being raised from ‘lilac’ to the more worrisome ‘purple’ aura. Meanwhile, new security measures at airports require that all water bottles be scanned to ensure that they are not being used to smuggle the memory of an explosion on board a plane. ‘Homeopathic weapons are the ultimate Smart Bombs,’ warned President Obama, ‘They are so smart that they only affect the gullible. The only defence is for everyone to remain calm, vigilant and to always wear a magic vibrating crystal.’”
At last weekends Ryder Cup, at the Celtic Manor in Wales, Tiger Woods hit his ball straight at Mail on Sunday photographer Mark Pain’s camera lens, enabling Pain to capture this amazing shot on his Nikon D3S camera, with a 24-70 mm lens and a shutter speed of 1/1000 of a second. See the original MailOnline article.
Perhaps more interesting is the “Cigar Guy” in the upper right corner of the picture. The legend of Cigar Guy was born. You can see a bunch more information about Cigar Guy here.

I’ll translate these as soon as I’ve got a second…
Ever wonder how to call someone out when they are being indirect? There are basically two ways… When someone is just indirect, you can say that they are 迂回 yūhuí but if you really want to point out that they’re “beating about the bush” (UK English) then you would say 拐弯抹角 guǎiwānmòjiǎo…
And how to say “call someone out”? Well, this one is extremely difficult to translate. The closest you can get is probably to “tactfully censure someone” or to 委婉指责 wěiwǎnzhǐzé. Of course, “calling someone out” is a rather masculine thing to do. Masculine would be 男性化 (nánxínghuà) or 强悍 (qiánghàn). On the other hand, feminine could be described as 娘儿 (niángr) 娘娘腔 (niángniangqiāng) 脂粉气 (zhīfěnqì).
