H. P. Lovecraft wrote:All I say is that I think it is damned unlikely that anything like a central cosmic will, a spirit world, or an eternal survival of personality exist. They are the most preposterous and unjustified of all the guesses which can be made about the universe, and I am not enough of a hair-splitter to pretend that I don't regard them as arrant and negligible moonshine. In theory I am an agnostic, but pending the appearance of radical evidence I must be classed, practically and provisionally, as an atheist.

I don't understand why some people like a movie like "Sharknado."

I can get why a bad movie like The Room might get a cult following. The difference is, I don't think Tommy Wiseau's idea was to create a bad movie. It was just a really bad movie, but that wasn't the intention. With Sharknado I get the sense that it's supposed to be bad. They made it bad on purpose. That's no fun.

I love a good over-the-top satire. For that, see the Japanese Original Tremors. While not specifically billed as a comedy, it has its comic aspects. There are others.

Sharknado and its ilk just had the "we don't give a shit, you'll watch it," all over it.

"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray
