  1. Interesting article in the NYT today... CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  2. I did similar a few years ago throughout my entire house with all the spotlights. They cost about 3 times what a normal bulb costs but I haven't had to replace a single one in 3 years and the costs on electricity is so much better! CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  3. Homer Simpson: "5 days! But I'm mad now!" CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  4. Sounds a lot like a 2000 year old religion. Many religions in fact. CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  5. Another day passed. Another ridiculous prophecy added to the list: https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/List_of_predictions_of_the_end_of_the_world CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  6. To quote the classic UK TV Show "Red Dwarf': Rimmer: "But how did they build such massive, massive pyramids?" Lister: "Whips, Rimmer. Massive, massive whips." CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  7. I did a course at university no the anthropology of religion. Essentially every civilisation across the world came up with some form of religion as a justification of their lives. The "Why are we here?" question is too big to answer and so humans invent a reason, which is religion. It happens everywhere. On another note, a wise man once said 'If you talk to god you are a Christian. If god talks to you, you are a schizophrenic.". CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  8. 8 mins from first call to all over. Not a bad response. If they had all had access to guns it would have gone down very differently... CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  9. I agree Stumpy: find best year of last 15 or so; leak headlines; hope everyone stops asking... CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  10. We can add it to the below list when nothing happens: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_dates_predicted_for_apocalyptic_events CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  11. The worrying thing is that it is not just America that needs to 'get ready'... CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  12. Assault weapons have gotten a lot of bad press lately, but they're manufactured for a reason: to take out today's modern super animals, such as the flying squirrel, and the electric eel. CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  13. Yep, zero. Same as the one before and the one before that, all the way back. We vote for a party and that party appoints a leader. CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  14. I as desperately hoping for a review of a pier, such as the excellent on in Blackpool. No such luck. CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  15. I thought his opening speech was more presidential than many he has made. I also noticed the underlying tension in the room when he congratulated Hillary - his voters expected her to be locked up, because that's what he promised. Just the first of many of his pre-election promises that will unwind before he has even taken office. Trump deserves nothing but contempt, as do those who voted him in. Truly a tragic day for the world http://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/an-american-tragedy-donald-trump CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  16. I cannot believe what has happened. Trump has conned enough people to win the Presidency. I firmly believe he is the single most dangerous man in the world right now. I pity those American's who voted the other way and hope the fallout is not too great. In fact I pity America. CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  17. OK. I just know that there are a lot of people out there who think the metaphor is "It's a doggie dog world", which makes little to no sense. Obviously the correct metaphor is "It's a dog eat dog world". Just for clarity. CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people

  20. I considered it. It's utter bollocks. CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  21. I think you are right. It has become a fucking shambles throughout. We had similar with 'Brexit'. To think that this is the democracy we push so hard to some parts of the world... CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  22. Why were you 'taken aback'? What was your pre-conception? Brits do laugh a lot. Perhaps not the first time they meet people though- it's a subdued politeness thing we have. I'm disappointed in Yaeger's comments. I met him about 12 years ago while I was working in Oz and he was charming. I also live in a village in Cambridgeshire that housed US airmen during the war as we had a Fighter Group here. The local pub has a lovely framed letter from them many years later thanking the locals for the friendship and support they offered. I have seen nothing but kindness and gratitude towards US troops. There is one true fire way to piss a Brit who knows anything about the war off and that is the big American chest thumping and telling us you won the war for us and we should be grateful. It was a World War. We did it together. CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  23. Very nicely put. You should apply to be a speech writer for Trump. Way better than anything that ever came out of his mouth. CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
  24. It's not nice being on the end of racism is it Ron? Out of interest, did you evacuate to GA to get away from the "negroes"? CJP Gods don't kill people. People with Gods kill people
