So you can imagine the "surprise" when only 12 hours after the polls closed, final results were announced by authorities who do that sort of announcing and they said Ferret Face wins. For the sake of something to compare the timing of that announcement to, in recent past elections, it has taken at least twice as long to count up all of the votes. Oh, yeah. Did I mention they count them by hand? They do. Did I mention that the ballot counters have bionic limbs? Yeah, they don't. So there's pretty much no way that 39,200,000 ballots were all counted in about 12 hours. That's about 3,266,666 an hour. 54,444 per minute. 907 per second. I was previously unaware of the speed at which Iranians can count election ballots, some of which had write-in candidates which are also supposed to be counted. Has someone contacted the Guinness Book of World Records because I'm pretty sure that this is one. The Fastest Ballot Counting Nation. It can go in the section next to all of the miraculous achievements by the platform shoe wearing, porn loving, ladies glasses donning dictator of North Korea, Kim Jong IL. His feats include hitting a hole in one the very first time he ever swung a golf club and making eleven, yes eleven, eleven hole in ones in ONE round of golf.
Good luck, you guys. While I commend your standing up for the democratic process and what is right, don't do anything dumb that's going to end up with your body being riddled with bullets. This is one of the instances in which I don't think that the 'safety in large numbers' strategy applies.
