A Stupid Ad

There is an ad showing on TV about premature ejaculation.

It's got the man and the woman and the guy has the problem and the "bedroom police" make him go to the company.

All I can think of whenever I see that ad is "how the hell did those guys get into his house".

Then again another ad involving two guys playing the piano with their penises (you didn't see anything) was "if I go to these people will I get a prehensile penis?". Honestly, how the hell can you play part of a song that is made up of joined quavers.

Fiji Daily Post

I don't know about non-Australians, but if you are in Australia and read the paper about a week ago, you would have seen an article like this Sydney Morning Herald article.

The Fiji Daily Post have been printing articles like that as a way of making fun of the government censors.

So we get articles like Man gets on bus, Paint dry, Breakfast as usual and I'm guessing that King of the baize is also one.

I don't know about you guys, but all I could think of was The Onion.

Snakes? Check. Plane? Check. Samuel L. Jackson...

Snakes ground Qantas flight.

Except unlike the crappy movie that I referenced in the title this plane was devoid of killing, and hopefully popular one liners.

And yes, it did actually happen.

The snakes were harmless and only caused some hassle for passengers.

Incidentally, trying to find a second news article on this story gave me an odd result. What exactly does royal incest shockers have to do with snakes?

A link to the snake story.

This Blog is My Thread

Parody of this. (Account needed)


The Price Of Fundamentalism?

It's from an old episode of Trading Spouses, so it's not the latest news but it does raise a valid point.

I'm going to have to ask you to go and watch this video first. It's a little loud, and also somewhat bigoted.

From what I can gather, and from a vague understanding of those types of shows I think that the scene is the "homecoming". I'm sure that the family probably thought that it would be like all the other shows, the mother, Marguerite Perrin, would be all happy to be home and it would be all love and happiness and the like.

If you watched the video you know how it turned out.

Personally I can't help but feel sorry for the family. Looking at the faces it just seems that they've seen a side of their mother/wife that they either haven't seen before or was part of the "it wasn't that bad" sort of thing.

I suspect that other people have found, and still do find, it funny.

I don't, and I don't think I ever will.

This is a person who has become blinded by her "faith". I suspect that it's "faith" because it sure isn't faith. All we saw there was bigotry wrapped in religion. Nothing else.

But it's the loved ones in this case that are affected by this woman. She let her own prejudices blind her to everything that she loves and should hold dear to her and turn a moment that should have been nice go sour because of it.

But in a world where there are people who take their faith to such an extreme you have to ask how often do they let their "faith" hurt those that they love?

And why is it that for some people such "faith" is something to look up to?

Happy Dead Jesus Day

Well it is, in essence anyway, what today is.

So for the religious people who happen to read this, I wish you a happy Easter. For those of you who aren't, then enjoy the long weekend or make sure you're earning public holiday rates if you're working.

I was listening to a song (see the end of this post) and it got me thinking.

Lucifer, apart from being a saint which I just learned about, is commonly tied with Satan, the Devil, also known as the Prince of Darkness.

Although the latter does raise questions as who the King of Darkness the better question is why would you tie a name that means "Bringer of Light" with someone who people consider to be the "Prince of Darkness"?

Light is commonly used in Western culture at least (So I don't know about the use in other cultures, so sue me) as a representation of the "forces of good", and as a bringer of truth and also knowledge (The Enlightenment anyone?). So why the name "Lucifer" for a being that is supposed to spread lies and make us dumb?

I'm sorry but it's illogical, unless it's supposed to be the other way around.

Based on some modern day social controversies, such as evolution vs. creationism, or stem cell research, it appears that there are far more religious proponents on the side that would slow down, or even stop, humanity from learning new things, new enlightenments.

It does seem that religion wants to keep us in darkness, make us live in a world of superstition and monsters, to keep us down and hold us back.

Perhaps then the name is apt, for the enemy of someone who wants to keep us in darkness would be one that brings us light.
