Say what?

The group has issued a nationwide call for people to go on at least a partial hunger strike, if only for a few hours, to show their opposition to the war in Iraq.

(emphasis mine)

Um, what? Look, I'm opposed to the war on all sorts of levels, and I applaud any activist's attempt at getting a message across in a non-violent manner, but, well, "a few hours?"

By the same token, I'd like to announce that, at roughly 10PM every night, I'll be participating in a hunger strike against the war, as well as against terrorism, global warming, AIDS, crack, Bernie Goetz, the designated hitter rule, NBC's bumping of Scrubs and Medium to midseason, Michael Bay, and pan-and-scan movies.

Said strike will end every morning around 6AM, with some variation depending on our toaster.

Strike might get called off as the result of midnight munchies, and is likely to occur during different hours on the weekend.

Seriously, the stupid, it burns. And it burns more when the stupidity is coming from folks on my "side," as such things go.

Hunger strikes are not like SETI@Home. You can't fucking distribute them and have each person just do a little bit.
