Since RNC has come out with its Tax Invaders Game, somebody needs to cut loose with
"What would George do?", a board game where the objective is to take a great nation with a thriving economy and international respect, and trash its freedoms, intimidate its citizens, destroy its social support systems, strive to give the rich more money, declare and mismanage senseless wars, etc. Pieces are advanced along a path of descision squares. At a square, the player draws a situation card, which requires a decision. The more dumb-ass the decision the greater the points awarded. The winner is declared once a player has accumulated enough dumb-ass points to piss-off the Almighty thereby precipitating the Rapture. (Was this the rationale for George backing Sharon's Gaza plan?)

A satellite picture of the desert of southwest Peru, between the Andes Mountains and the Peruvian coast, lies a plateau exhibiting some peculiar archeology. Huge geometric patterns and spirals, animal figures including a monkey, a spider and an 'owl man', and thousands of perfectly straight lines are immaculately etched onto the desert's surface. The last of these was drawn about a thousand years ago. Known as the Nazca lines, the drawings have mystified scientists since they were first discovered in the 1920s.(NASA/HO)
