Burnside Brewing Co. has apologised over the name it chose for their chili infused wheat beer. Thereís always someone to ruin a cool name.

I wonder what Hindus might think of this little gem from Brazil.

Practice tolerance! Except to anyone who actually adheres to a religion, creed, belief system, way of life, discipline... right, guys?

I guess its nice and all that but the article leaves out the dark side ( from our western cultures point of view) of the Goddess completely.
But thats Off Topic.
So good luck Burnside
