    Mr. Rant’s Christmas Message 2014

     Posted in Our Past & Thoughts on Things... at 9:37 on Thursday, December 25th, 2014 by Mr. Rant

    Good morning,

    As 2014 comes to a close and we celebrate whatever we celebrate it’s a good time to remember those who are not with us this Christmas, those people who made us the way we are, and those who work to keep us that way. ¬†While you eat your turkey dinner, there are people all over the UK working to keep us safe, keep us in power, help us get well when we are sick, these people work over the festive period and they work hard to ensure that we carry on. ¬†Let’s spare a thought for them.

    2014 has been a difficult year, the terrorism continues, the hatred toward each other grows, and the world takes a turn for the worse. ¬†It’s clear watching the news that we aren’t all getting along happily and that we never will, it’s frustrating that people are so bent on killing each other to step back and see that we’re all the same. ¬†None of us are any different, in all honesty we’re just carbon, floating on a rock, in endless infinite space. ¬†Everyone should take a moment to reflect on that fact once in a while.

    I hope that 2014 has brought you all you wished for at the start and I hope that 2015 is even better, raise a glass, stop and think and remember that, those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

    Merry Christmas,

    Mr. Rant.

    Guess what… It’s raining…

    Global warming.

    More like global wetness or global sogginess. ¬†The past three weeks have seen the wettest on record for the UK, we’ve had strong wind (not just after the sprouts), heavy rain, and trees frequently being blown over, so if you haven’t been blown to oblivion yet, let’s hope it is coming to an end soon. ¬†It doesn’t look like it is. ¬†I think we need to, however just calm down a little about the recent semi-extreme weather.

    Let me explain, indulge me for a moment.

    As a human, living in England, we have a tendency to over estimate the effect of weather on us. ¬†It’s not that we over exaggerate the weather, we just don’t seem to be able to cope with it. ¬†We seem to have this inability to cope when we have a storm or rather unexpected deluges which admittedly have led to me starting to build an ark, but alas, has it really been that bad?

    It has for some, some poor fellows have had all they own washed away. ¬†Now, you’d think that they would be in receipt of some form of benefit or help from the government. ¬†No. ¬†They have had nothing, and yet we send over millions of pounds worth of aid to far away civilisations to help them after a natural disaster. Lets not start to imagine that I am trying to play down the awful things that have happened around the world, but I would like to see some help for people here, after all they are in need of some aid too.

    I often close these posts with a question and yet again I am going to do it.  Should we now, give some aid to those who need it here?

    The problem is..

    You’re stupid.¬† Over the past few days the silliness of people has hit me like a train.¬† We’re getting dumber.¬† It would seem at an alarming rate.¬† Gone are the days that we could all string together an intelligible sentence and gone are the days that people read for recreation.¬† I love to read; anything in fact.¬† I love to peruse a book with a nice cup of coffee preferably in a Starbucks.¬† (I’m going for sponsorship by name dropping; or at least a free cappuccino).

    I think people really need to start to read again.¬† There are so many wonderful books to read out there and that they’re not even expensive, you can even get them free from this place called a library; you have t0 return them though.¬† Last week I was on the train taking one of my usual jaunts down to Cheltenham.¬† Just a few months ago you would see scores of people reading on the train enjoying the brief moment of downtime before their lives started up again in a raucous fashion.¬† On this train journey there was none of that.¬† Just a carriage full of nothing.¬† People staring blankly into the distance as the train sped on it’s journey through the country side.

    I like to see people reading.  It gives me faith that the human race is not in a slow decline into nothingness.  I beg of you please get a book and read it.  Enjoy it.  Make the pictures in your head as you read the words on the page.
