    The rapture is coming…

     Posted in Bullshit & The Religion Police at 4:41 on Saturday, May 21st, 2011 by Mr. Rant

    Hold on to your hats kids, the Rapture is coming! NOW!

    BULLSHIT!

    Let’s start by saying that people believing in this Rapture are severely mentally retarded and focus on something a little more important like enjoying our weekend! It’s Saturday for God’s sake, pardon the pun.  This whole story started with an American Bible basher proclaiming that the Rature was coming on 21st May 2010, let’s not forget he said the same thing in 1994 and well don’t you know it we’re all still here.

    Just enjoy your life, before you die and then relalise there is no God!

    Now if I’m wrong, I’ll repent like a bastard, and be forgiven yeah?

    Outstanding Contribution – Russell Brand? Outstanding Prick…

     Posted in Anger Level 4 & Entertainment at 10:08 on Sunday, January 23rd, 2011 by Mr. Rant

    Last night (Saturday 23rd December 2010) the British Comedy Awards were held at the O2 in London and also broadcast live on Channel 4 – nothing unusual in that I hear you say, what is unusual is that the winners weren’t exactly what you’d expect.

    As ever with award ceremonies there will be winners and losers and people will be upset at who won and who didn’t but last nights awards seem to be a the biggest shock.  Most people will be aware that the winners are picked (with the exception of the People’s Choice award which is picked by the public via expensive telephone voting) by a panel of industry experts and fellow funny people, it seems they have lost their way somewhat this year.

    For a start who expected ‘Horrible Histories’ to win Best Sketch Show; even though I’ll admit it’s quite good, and who for the love of God picked Newswipe as the winner of Best Comedy Entertainment Show when the likes of Harry Hill’s TV Burp are getting better ratings and Newswipe is stuck on BBC Three late at night, but the biggest shock was yet to come.

    Outstanding? Nope.

    Outstanding? Nope.

    The Outstanding Contribution to Comedy Award was given to that lanky, offensive, flouncy haired know-it-all Russell Brand, when the likes of Peter Kay and his Lordship Stephen Fry have won it before, what were the judges thinking when they picked him?

    I can only suggest that they were either bribed or aren’t actually industry experts and they’re actually sixteen year old girls or Katy Perry.

    I think you need to pose the question whether award shows such as these are actually worthwhile when you have a comedian (using the term lightly) who is almost universally despised winning a top award, maybe it’s time the whole show was voted for by the public preferably online and for free.  It’s time to give the public back the choice after all we are the people who watch comedians, pay the license fee and support their work.   I’ve sworn that I’ll never watch the comedy awards ever again and I’ll stick by that until they realise that we won’t stand for winners who don’t deserve a top honour.

    We can only that next year the winner is more realistic or else we’ll have Lady Gaga getting an OBE for Outstanding Contribution to Fashion in next years new years honours list.

    Sceptical Bullshit Series: The Problem with Spiritualism

     Posted in Bullshit at 23:18 on Friday, January 14th, 2011 by Mr. Rant

    It’s bullshit.

    Well that was easy wasn’t it? Spiritualism is the maybe the third biggest load of bullshit every to have graced our world.  I’ll go into what number two and number one are in the course of this mini-series.  The problem I have with spiritualism is that from a scientific and logical stand point there is not evidence to prove it, so consequently why believe it?

    A lot of people who believe in this kind of bullshit are trying to exploit a basic human trait of escapism.  Now escapism is fine most of the time we all do it; some by reading, many by arty things such as drawing or writing.  What I have a problem with is escaping through something which is neither real or can ever be proven to be so.

    All those hours wasted by looking at star charts to see which quadrant Venus is in and how that’ll effect your life is complete and utter shite.  Unless of course you’re a muppet.  Personally I don’t believe in fate, why should you when life has infinite possibilities that are determined by nothing but your own actions.

    What can I say to deter people from believing in it? Nothing, people are free to believe what they like and no amount of anti-bullshit watching by me is going to make a difference, people will believe it non the less.  Maybe people who has a spiritualist streak should think once in a while that maybe if they just let life take them where it wants to things will work out on their own.
