The abomination that is… Pastor Terry Jones

I see with some horror and disgust that a lunatic preacher from Florida (Pastor Terry Jones) is planning on publicly burning copies of the Quran on Sept 11th.

There are a number of points that immediately come to mind about this but first and foremost, if the media were to stay away from him and his lunatic associates instead of publicising them so much then what would he be left with ?  Nothing.

Come on ABC, NBC, CNN or whoever… just STAY AWAY.

This is NOT NEWS !

If the media went rushing round to every lunatic who said he was going to do something obnoxious, offensive, or just downright bloody stupid they would be able to wipe out the unemployment situation at a stroke in order to find enough people to cover all the “events”, and there wouldn’t be enough air time to show it all.

Just for once, Media, have some balls… IGNORE HIM.

If he gets NO PUBLICITY then he becomes just another back street loonie with his own home videos to watch.

When he puts them on Youtube, or wherever, they can immediately be blocked as distasteful/offensive. Problem solved.

Alternatively, of course, as he plans his little ritual for 6pm on Sept. 11th there is always the hope that he might suffer a fatal heart attack at 5pm on Sept. 11th.

Now that really would be something worth praying for….

Bring back the Darwin Awards, and here’s the first nomination

OMG ! This I could not believe

Entitled “Global Warming Breaking News: China eyeing perks of ice-free Arctic” this YouTube video tries to make the point that the Corporate world will carry on seeking out new opportunities for making a profit, irrespective of whether there are any of us left to provide that profit or if the search for that opportunity is itself the cause of our demise (through the global warming that it causes).

Why the producer of the video picks on China is not clear, because if (when) the Arctic ice melts there are many countries and Corporations that will try to butcher the resources that become available and take advantage of the new shipping lanes. But hey, it’s their video.

However, I digress.

Try to think of the most mind-bogglingly stupid thing that a group of people could possibly do.

Nope…. you’re not even close yet. Try again.

Need some help ? ….

Think dumb-ass, and then add thirty eight noughts to the end of it…. Yes, THAT stupid !

See if you can imagine a situation where a whole group of people could be just standing around, minding their own business, having a lovely day, fascinated by what they are seeing and hearing, and waiting for a spectacular event to occur… and yet be so blissfully unaware that when it does occur it will, inevitably, lead to their deaths.

Can you think of anything ?

Watch this…
(Clip Length 5:03)


Almost as unbelievable is the fact that the producer classes them as “victims” who were “swept out to sea as a glacier melts in front of their eyes and then carries them to their deaths”.

Well that must be the fault of global warming then !

I nominate all the “victims” who had not yet had children as the first recipients of the newly reinstated Darwin Award.

How I miss those…..
