My son sometimes plays a computer game called "Black and White". You basically play the part of God and you have subjects doing all sorts of things at your bidding. Some of your subjects are given the task of simply worshipping you and they all bow down at a kind of altar thing. One day, by mistake, he dropped a huge rock on his worshipers and killed them all. It was hilarious. We started joking about "smiting" and "they didn't bow down far enough - slackers" and laughed so much the tears were rolling down our cheeks.

Ah - the god-wish. The movie Bruce Almighty had a good swipe at it - brilliant.

Seen it. I knew he was playing the "evil" god when I could hear little bursts of laughter every now and again. It's really funny. You klap your cow Faerie??! Now there is a thing you don't want taken out of context. LOL Heheheheh.

GCG: it's an old game, and most game shops should have it for around 50 bux (if they even have it still).

i heard a story from a work colleage of mine, that the pope was an SS officer in the war.  how true is that?


Not true.  He was far too young.  He was in the Hitler Youth. He talked crap in Glasgow.

To paraphrase an old joke:

"Shit!" said god, and a million arseholes strained in compliance.....

A funny little man in a funny pointy hat says funny silly things.
[Pope Benedict XVI] insisted [youngsters] were in danger of alienation and detachment from reality by excessive use of digital media.



He accepted, however, online social networks were now an “integral part of human life” and encouraged Christians “confidently and with an informed and creative responsibility” to use them to spread the Gospel.
(Emphasis added.)

You just have to love the deep irony of the pope’s inane blathering.  Who, exactly, is already alienated and detached from reality!?  Is he really trying to turn Roman Catholics into evangelicals with this “spread the Gospel” hooey!?  In the RCC, spreading the word has always been a function reserved for priests and missionaries, not the laity because the RCC holds, as official policy, that the laity is far too uninformed and stupid about the Gospel to be able to spread it meaningfully.

In reference to the title of this thread, the above raises the intriguing possibility that the pope does not, in fact, possess anything that could rightly be called a “mind.”  Perhaps the man has Alzheimer’s to compound his brain rot.

when the pope has anything to say, we should start stockpiling cans of baked beans and bottled water.
