I have wanted to this for long, but his recent post has forced the issue. Please send in your nominations for the weirdest Dilip D’Souza post. By weird, I mean just plain weird. I don’t mean a post you disagree strongly with. I mean a post that is so weird that… ok screw it. Let me explain with an example:
My own nomination is this post. Read the post and read the reports he links to. A 16-year old boy has allegedly murdered a younger boy. Dilip wants to know why there was a need to mention that the alleged killer was adopted.
Now, in the reports he has linked to, you will learn that the boy had learnt only recently that he had been adopted and had been depressed ever since. The police had mentioned this fact as a possible motive for the murder, and newspapers had reported what the police had said. Dilip reads the reports and asks.. “Why?”
This is the kind of weirdness I am looking for. Not posts with faulty reasoning or risible conclusions, but ones where the reasoning is so out there that it stuns the sane reader.
The immediate impetus to the contest is of course this post.
