I know both Anax, and I'm pretty handy at them.

:D
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

I'm feeling a bit bad, now.

It wasn't his fault, what happened and he was obviously shit-scared.

I'm generally a gentle person but, having been kept waiting for over an hour, I became more than a little cross.

Oh dear. :(

I think the alternative was stoning, but I like your Bible better.

I mean, can you imagine the cannibal cultists wandering around covered in pigshit?

Then there is the question of why Jesus never became a Doctor.

Probably because Jesus never existed. A pretty tale but a tale nonetheless.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

“Many religions now come before us with ingratiating smirks and outspread hands, like an unctuous merchant in a bazaar. They offer consolation and solidarity and uplift, competing as they do in a marketplace. But we have a right to remember how barbarically they behaved when they were strong and were making an offer that people could not refuse. And if we chance to forget what that must have been like, we have only to look at those states and societies where the clergy still has the power to dictate its own terms. The pathetic vestiges of this can still be seen, in modern societies, in the efforts made by religion to secure control over education, or to exempt itself from tax, or to pass laws forbidding people to insult its omnipotent and omniscient deity, or even his prophet.”

Too bad something useful can't be done with these abandoned structures. Homeless shelters perhaps?

No. Never work. The 1% would have to give up .00000000000001% in order to fund that.

Fuckers.

Yup, no money is being spent on homeless.

Where did I say that? :De_Bunk:

Dipshit.

And BTW--I bet the 1% still aren't spending anything. What is being spent comes from tax revenues. So anti up Grammy. [Insert obligatory Yer Mom joke here] :)
