Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Well, thanks for the update.

From the Orlando Sentinel, Monday January 3rd, 2005

Pope says faith can be helpful during disasters.

Vatican City- Pope John Paul II said Sunday that faith can be helpful during catastrophes such as the Indian Ocean tsunamis by reminding sufferers of God's continued presence. "Faith teaches us that even in the most difficult and painful trials, as in the disasters which struck in these days in Southeast Asia, God never abandons us," John Paul said.

Also in the news:

Water is Wet

Fire Burns

I mean, seriously, the Pope says that faith is a good thing. How exactly is that news?

Ah, it's non-news and then you post about it. Life not very exciting round where you live either, eh.

On second thoughts: it is non-news, you post about it and I post a comment about your post. I think I need a hobby. Perhaps I should finally give in to peer pressure and take up flyfishing. Or curling (

I think we need more Pope news. Something like a daily excrement update would be appropriate. You could call the feature "Holy Shit."

"In other news: Vatican City representatives confirmed today that Pope John Paul II produced feces that contain the image of the baby Jesus. Thousands are reported to be gathering near Rome to venerate the miraculous poo, while Vatican authorities consider how best to preserve this new relic. 'Say what you like,' One cardinal is reported as saying, 'But this shit is sacred. This shit symbolizes God's love for mankind!'

'Maybe it is,' Responded Vince Caldessi, a Newark plumber, 'But I'll give dollars to donuts it stinks like the garden variety.'"
