We are living in Idiocracy. It’s not coming, it’s here now…

imageThe Christian right is making a fresh push to force religion onto the school curriculum in Texas with the state’s education board about to consider recommendations that children be taught that there would be no United States if it had not been for God.

Members of a panel of experts appointed by the board to revise the state’s history curriculum, who include a Christian fundamentalist preacher who says he is fighting a war for America’s moral soul, want lessons to emphasise the part played by Christianity in the founding of the US and that religion is a civic virtue.

Opponents have decried the move as an attempt to insert religious teachings in to the classroom by stealth, similar to the Christian right’s partially successful attempt to limit the teaching of evolution in biology lessons in Texas.

Alex Kovas (born 1977) is a Russian-British male model in the fitness and fashion industries.   He gained notoriety within the furry fandom after a number of videos featuring Kovas were posted to his YouTube account; the videos depict Kovas posing in a combination of body paint and animal masks.

It’s a little creepy folks!  Do what you will with this:

Humanimal is collaboration between amazingly talented body painter Kirsten Bentley and professional model and actor Alex Kovas. Combining detailed body painting with the use of prosthetics, Humanimal can create a variety of visually stunning animals, for your event using, contact lenses, body paint and ingenious prosthetics to complete the illusion. Humanimal can turn Alex Kovas into a jaguar, panther, lion or any other big cat you could imagine, as well as a range of dogs and even a zebra. All these animals are amazing recreations of the orginal, created with astounding attention detail. humanimal have even recieved praise from a big cat game keeper at a safari park reception they performed at. He commented that the markings displayed by Humanimal`s big cat were as close to the real thing as they could possibly be.

Alex has modelled for a Diesel billboard campaign and has starred in commercials for both Nike and Adidas. He has also performed in Calvin Harris?

imageYes, THAT Radovan Karadzic, the Serbian politician, poet and accused genocider!

In a tale that will surely go down in the annals of WTF? as one of the weirdest “Where are they now?” stories of all time, Rodavan Karadzic—well we know where he is now, he’s awaiting trial at The Hague—grew a beard and took the alias of Dr. Dragan David Dabi?тİ. Under this name he operated a website offering to treat sexual disorders using what he called Human Quantum Energy. He gave talks on his theories to hundreds of people.

This story is super tweaked:

At the time of his arrest, Dragan Dabi?тİ was fast becoming a minor celebrity in Belgrade. He had his own column in a national magazine. He was a rising star in a Connecticut-based vitamin company. And he was collaborating with a well-known sexologist on a novel form of sperm-rejuvenation therapy.

So after Karadzic was hustled off to The Hague last July to stand trial for war crimes, some knotty questions lingered. I made e-mail contact with Tesanovic, whose antiwar writings became popular in the late ?

My husband found this curious poster taped on a telephone pole in Los Angeles. I’m not exactly sure what this fellow wants, other than to meet some fly white, Asian and Latina ladies to help him with “things.” Apparently he likes rapping and playing chess. We at Dangerous Minds wish him the best of luck with his future endeavors.

Update: A savvy Boing Boing commenter points out that the guy’s a) prolific b) known.

I couldn’t find much information on German group New Production Goes to Munich’s 1987 hit “Tippen Ein.”  But, for all you Tim and Eric fans out there, I think you’ll really love this twisted synthpop masterpiece. Genius.

Here’s a link to a live version of “Tippen Ein”
