Oh joy. The president of Pakistan, the country on the so-called frontline of the war on terror, apparently sacrifices a black goat almost everyday to ward off the “evil eye”. If you were wondering why Pakistan’s such a mess, this may begin to answer your question.

To be fair, the subcontinent is a superstitious/spiritual place, and the existence of the “evil eye” is accepted by many educated Pakistanis and Indians. But seriously?–like, effing, seriously?
