    There's a bookstore in Denver, Colorodo called Isis. Apparently they were vandalized because of the attacks on Paris.

    http://www.usnews.com/news/offbeat/...-spirituality-bookstore-named-isis-vandalized

    What I found interesting is that they didn't file a police report. And this isn't the first time they've been vandalized due to their name. If it was me, I'd have filed a police report, but that is neither here nor there.

    The owners don't plan on changing the name, and the store isn't suffering any decline in sales. The only real problem is they get vandalized bc of their name.

    I find the stupidity of people to be fascinating. In this instance, you vandalize a store bc the name sounds like a terrorist organization. :| Wonder if damaging that sign made them feel better.

    If it makes you feel better, FB banned the account of a woman whose first name is Isis :D I propose that Egyptian goddess should lay low as well. :eek:

    The world is becoming increasingly worried about isis, when it should be more worried about the increasing number of people with the IQ of a carrot.

    People love finding reasons to get offended over nothing, so they can break stuff and pretend it's for a good cause.

    Although, paediatricians and therapists do have rather sketchy names, if you think about it.

    Back in 2014, I got an American Express card from a company named "Serve" for their mobile wallet. Their mobile wallet's name was "ISIS", so as soon as the terrorist group named ISIS became more well-known, Serve changed the name of the wallet from ISIS to SoftCard to avoid any confusion between the mobile wallet and the terrorist group. However, because they sent thousands of card out with the name "ISIS" on it, I now have a debit card that says "Serve ISIS" on it.

    Wonder what would happen if you posted that pic on social media Z. People would probably go berserk.

    I heard about a paediatrician being beaten up a while back. Never underestimate just how stupid people can be.
