A Pakistani sculptor brings dark times, science fiction and a desire to provoke to New York's famed Metropolitan Museum of Art for this year's rooftop installation overlooking the Manhattan skyline. Huma Bhabha's "We Come in Peace" depicts a towering 12-foot, five-headed figure weighing 1.5 tons and an 18-foot long prostrate figure covered in a trash bag and called Benaam, or "without name" in Urdu. The installation, which opened Tuesday, is the sixth annual commission at the illustrious US museum's roof garden, a popular summer spot that draws nearly half a million visitors every year. read more

The largest ever genetic study on pigmentation looked at nearly 300,000 people of European descent. It found 124 new genes that play a major role in determining human hair colour variation.

A young man claims that he has become gay after taking pain-killers when he broke his foot in a go-karting accident. Unemployed Scott Purdy, 23, says he was a hot-blooded heterosexual and enjoyed dating women before he started taking Pregabalin, also known as Lyrica. But he claims he quickly lost his sexual attraction to women and broke up with his girlfriend of six months when prescribed the drug earlier this year. Scott, of Louth, Lincolnshire, says he soon realised that he had developed an attraction to men and had actually turned gay. read more

This is what this Pakistani dude is talking about when he jokes he can make everyone a Muslim in 30 seconds.

He meant he would make everyone repeat THAT pledge/statement.

Rahman disappeared in October 2002, when the family was living in a refugee camp near Peshawar, Pakistan. He was delivered to a clandestine CIA prison

All thanks to the "Retort's Favorite Country" (Pakistan, of course).

One interesting nugget involves Pakistan's sale of hundreds of stray Arabs (and Afghans) to the Americans, for shipment to Bagram air force base and on to Guantanamo Bay. Many of my clients in Cuba insist that, far from being captured on the battlefield in Afghanistan, they were grabbed in Pakistan and flogged to the Americans, like slaves at auction. Predictably enough, for five years the Bush administration has remained very quiet on this issue, but Musharraf's book sheds new light.

"Many members of al-Qaeda fled Afghanistan and crossed the border into Pakistan," he writes. "We have played cat and mouse with them ... We have captured 689 and handed over 369 to the United States. We have earned bounties totalling millions of dollars. Those who habitually accuse us of 'not doing enough' in the war on terror should simply ask the CIA how much prize money it has paid to the government of Pakistan."... "In the Line of Fire" by former President of Pakistan a.k.a Pervaiz Musharaff a.k.a "Used Condom".
