Here's a handy little booklet, "Fourteen Signs Announcing Christ's Return".
"Make no mistake about it. Jesus’ return will not happen secretly off in some cave with no one knowing about it. Jesus Christ will literally come back to the city of Jerusalem, to the top of the Mount of Olives, to begin governing the entire earth! There will be a divine, one-world government. What a shock that will be to all humanity! "
Must be true. It's in the Bible after all.
One should not forget that the bible says that the Earth is flat too, though I think this has been largely discredited.

Ooops. Somebody had to say it in the end didn't they?
One suspects, however, that good taste would dictate that a little more time should have elapsed first.
Maybe, just maybe, the ferocity of the hurricane was related to climate change. And, maybe, a country that is responsible for a quarter of the world's energy consumption is most responsible for said climate change.

From the Guardian..
"Kathleen Blanco, the governor of Louisiana, said: "They have M-16s and they're locked and loaded. These troops know how to shoot and kill ... they are more than willing to do so, and I expect they will."
The US president, George Bush, who is due to visit New Orleans later today, said he approved of the shoot-to-kill policy.
"I think there ought to be zero tolerance of people breaking the law during an emergency such as this, whether it be looting, or price-gouging at the gasoline pump or taking advantage of charitable giving, or insurance fraud," Mr Bush added.
Surely President Bush is not seriously suggesting that those committing insurance fraud will be shot on site?

Former first lady reveals a little too much about her prejudice with this comment.
Barbara Bush, the former first lady, courted controversy by pointing out that many of the people forced out of their homes by Hurricane Katrina "were underprivileged anyway". Mrs Bush, who joined her husband, George, on a tour of the Houston Astrodome, said: "And so many of the people in the arena here were underprivileged anyway, so this is working very well for them. What I'm hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality."

Not remarkable, except in itself of course.
I actually managed a couple of decent times in 'competition' at a meet last night - 25 and 27 seconds or so. And then choked it!

Movies and the like, reviewed though the bizarre moral kaleidoscope of christians.
Here's a nice example for the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
"I left halfway through this movie. The direct reference towards salvation in the scene where he says "whipe us clean with your white hankerchief" or something like that was the last straw for me. I'm not going to sit there and listen to someone belittle my saviour."

"Rooney is from Liverpool and everyone from that city has a chip on their shoulder, so if an injustice is done to him on the pitch, of course he is going to react."

According to this Guardian article and, er..., well me recently.
"Rooney's temperament, a lack of respect from youngsters who have everything and know nothing, capitalism run amok, jersey pulling, class exploitation, spitting, Abramovich, Murdoch and the fact that the Premiership title has been decided before September is out."
In my view: too many games on TV, two shit tournaments (do we really need second meaningless domestic and european cups?), a rich man has come along and bought the premiership, predictable - at least the Scottish league had a choice of two teams that would win and overpaid, ugly, diving, cheating, mouthy, disrespectful, uneducated, uncouth, churlish monsters that play the game.

.. really is a complete and utter knob. So he's finally managed to extricate himself out of a binding contract with Williams. Here is a man clearly with no honour. None.
"There are many more goals for us to achieve together - not least of all winning the world championship."
For someone that has clocked up nearly a hundred races without a win, he seems to talk a lot about the World Championship.

Still too long I'm afraid.
"We majored on the ones that have entered the common consciousness, like Noah's Ark, Jonah and so on."
Noah's Ark. Jesus. I'd have swept that under the carpet I think. You'd have thought that even the most uncynical reader would suspect something was awry with the idea of a big boat with all the creatures in.

The headline reads "BUTTON HAILS DAWN OF NEW ERA WITH BAR".
Surely it’s the continuation of the same mediocre era that we've all been witnessing since he joined BAR in 2003?
“Button, who will partner Rubens Barrichello at BAR next season, said: "Definitely this is where it all starts.””
Hmmm, it all started with them three seasons ago mate, and you still haven’t won a race.
His first “era” commenced with Williams in 2000. Not even a podium to show.
His second “era” of mediocrity began with Renault (nee Benetton) in 2001, which he managed to string out for two years before the management got bored of 5th places.
As an interesting aside, it took him two attempts to pass his driving test. I’m pretty sure he would cite bad luck as the reason if asked.

Excellent website. "A review of religion and culture" is the strapline.
"Bad news is, sea levels are rising, creating dramatic increases in air and water temperatures and causing more frequent and more intense Katrina-like weather. Good news is, the jury is still out on 'global warming.' And evolution."
