Jan 4 - Iran’s Jamkaran Mosque: Red Flag Raised Signaling Revenge for Suleimani

WATCH: Iran unveils red flag of revenge against America at mosqueThe flag, inscribed with the words “Those who want to avenge the blood of Hussein,” was hoisted above the mosque’s shrine for what local reports claimed was the first time in history…  The grandson of Muhammad, Hussein was decapitated in A.D. 680 during the Second Islamic Civil War.
Jamarkaran Mosque is one of the holiest sites in Shiite Islam and one of the mosques associated with the Mahdi, also known as the 12th Imam. Some Muslims believe the Mahdi is alive but hidden and will emerge to rule the world shortly before the Day of Judgment. Referencing the Mahdi, the speaker called, "O Allah, hasten your custodian reappearance," as the flag was raised.

The World's Largest Corpse Flower Is Blooming Right Now (and It Stinks)
It smells like rotting flesh — found in Indonesia! The rafflesia plant is often referred to as a "monster flower" for its parasitic properties and repugnant stench. Indonesian wildlife officials might've found the most monstrous flower of them all.
A rafflesia that recently bloomed in a West Sumatran forest is nearly 4 feet in diameter -- that would make it the largest flower ever recorded, according to the Natural Resources and Conservation Center in West Sumatra. Curiously, it was the same location (and host plant) that produced what was the largest rafflesia ever recorded back in 2017. But this monster flower is 4 inches wider. The plant has no roots or leaves -- it's parasitic. The rafflesia feeds on a host plant to live, drinking its water and nutrients. It's only visible when it bursts through the host plant to reveal its flowers. -

Brexit Note that was sent to all MPs in the British Parliament -
Anti-Brexit leaflet delivered to MPs through HoC internal mail
On the front is the name of just about every god in multiple languages. Every ‘o’ has been swapped for a smiley face and the unhinged text inside, urging MPs to stop Brexit, is full of bible quotes and text speak. Front and centre was a symbol famously adapted by Prince as his new stage name in 2017.

The coins bear the inscription "Peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations" and the date of 31 January.
As part of the launch of the coin, the Royal Mint will open the doors of its south Wales HQ for 24 hours on 31 January (from 00:01 to 23.59) to let people strike their own commemorative Brexit coins.
The European Parliament is expected to approve the Withdrawal Agreement on Wednesday, after the PM this week signed the treaty paving the way for the UK to leave on 31 January.
