more Bah Humbug

Sometimes a picture with words says more than just a picture.

Some Christmas greetings and words of wisdom:

appropriated-pagan-ritualor more to the point, how up-tight and stupid the religious are. LOL

the-messiah-is-still-lateBWAHAHA, I’m not sorry.

buy-buy-you-bitchesluv the speech bubble

one last one that has nothing to do with Christmas, I just like it, then again I’m a bit weird like that

Have a nice holiday people, I’m on leave for the next two weeks, but I’ll still be blogging.

Hat Tip to Tracey Treasure, via Vamp, for finding the wrongcards site (where all these pics were ripped from), why not send one to friends, I know I did.

Six Things Meme

I got tagged by (((Billy))) for the six random things about myself meme. Here are the rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you (I did).
2. Post the rules on your blog (I did).
3. Write six random arbitrary things about yourself (see below).
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them (see below – suckers).
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog (doing now).
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up. (back at you (((Billy)))).

Six Random Things About Me:

  1. I’ve cut my head open twice in bed related incidents.
  2. I’m allergic to bee stings. Or at least I was last time I got stung (about 30 years ago) I may not be allergic to them any more according to medical opinion, but I’m not game to risk it. I’ve tried very hard to avoid bees since the last time I got stung. “Is that a balloon in your hand?” “No, it is my hand.”
  3. I’ve appeared on TV at least twice. Once in an ABC current affairs program, and once broadcast live from an event at the Adelaide Festival Theatre.
  4. My older sister and I have something in common that my younger sister and brother don’t.  (bonus point as this also reveals how many siblings I have)
  5. I wear a lot of Polo shirts, but none by Lacoste. I don’t know what that says about me?
  6. I like teasing people with half hinted at statements.  (as Fiery would say) ***snerk***

I’m tagging the following six people, however as this meme spreads it’s getting harder to find people who haven’t already been tagged. So if you have already  been tagged, or done this meme, just drop a link in my comments. If you don’t have a blog and want to get involved just leave your 6 random things about yourself in my comments.

Atheist Blogger (because we have something in common)

Atheist Revolution

Phoenix Rising (aka Fiery)

Green-Eyed Momster

Thump Thump Eyes

The Thinkers Podium (because we have something in common)

I’ve rushed this out since I’ve finally realised I’d been tagged (hadn’t checked my own blog for 2 days!) to try and beat others to my taggees. Don’t forget to have a look at the other post today about  abortion, censorship and  the atheist bus advertising campaign.

fun and game

Yes I know I said I was going to take a break from writing blogs for a couple of days, and I have spent some time catching up on other’s blogs, but sometimes you just need to pop bubblewrap, or hurl a haggis.

Thanks very much to Wineymomma for these links.

Unemployed? John has some advice.

With titles like:

  • See the world
  • Comfort yourself
  • Get in touch with nature
  • Dare to dream, and
  • Don’t sweat the small stuff

you might think you’ll find some useful advice for the unemployed. Don’t be fooled. You may however, get a good laugh.

As John says:

… remember: being unemployed isn’t the end of the world. A 200,000 ton atom bomb … is the end of the world.

In words of one syllable…

Can you read this blog?

How readable is your blog? 🙂

Updated 10 Dec 07

I noted when I copied the code, that results from the test, that the alt=”” tag had a strange link to something called ‘cash advance’. Sensibly I deleted this and put in my own alt tag. I notice on Pharyngula today there’s a link to a story about this in the Guardian. Hopefully all you net savvy people edited out the sneaky spam code, but I’d check anyway if I were you.

 

Thanks to Protium for the link

get out of my way

Whilst driving home this afternoon behind a car doing less than 80km in a 100km zone my mind wandered to how much of my time this person was wasting. Now sure, I waste a lot of my own time, but that’s my concern, when someone else wastes my time then I can complain?

Then I got to thinking, I know that when I die, that’s it, game over, no more credits. So all the time on earth should be precious to me. So I worked out, on average, I’ll be alive for about 42,000,000 minutes, and this slow poke in front of me is costing me some of those precious minutes.

Now this is when things got really weird, I thought what if this person in front of me is a Christian? If they are then they probably don’t care too much about losing a few minutes here and there on earth because they think they get to spend eternity in heaven.

So I wondered, would I get away with a verdict of justifiable homicide if I’d blown this idiot away? I know there is no heaven, they think there is, therefore they don’t care about wasting their time, and consequently mine, whereas I do because I know that’s all I get.

That also got me to thinking, why do Christians try to stay alive? If they believe they are going to heaven, and heaven is supposed to be such a wonderful place, then surely they’d want to get there as fast as possible? So perhaps they should all drive like maniacs, without wearing seatbelts, or paying attention to road rules. (funnily enough a little while later I came up behind a car which had the jesus fish and a ‘jesus lives’ sticker on the back, naturally I gave it a wide berth) 🙂 Perhaps Christians shouldn’t pay attention to OH&S, or any of those safety signs, maybe we should put Christians to work in all the really dangerous jobs because they wont mind if they get killed because they get to go to heaven anyway?

I have a long drive home and get very bored sometimes 🙂

PS. I don’t advocate homicide in any way shape or form. I don’t advocate for anyone to drive recklessly or disobey the road rules, and I don’t really advocate that people should disregard safety or be forced to work in hazardous jobs.

Also, I have justed wasted well over 40 times more time writing this blog than any slow driver ever caused me, but gave myself a bit of light hearted relief in the process.

Cheers all.
