  1. Amazon Prime Video

    Season 3 of Preacher has been making up for Season 2's slowness.
  2. Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

    Cards and flowers. I don't like giving cards and I don't like receiving them. I don't like it when people give us flowers either. "Thanks very much - something for me to watch die over the next few days before I have the hassle of recycling the remains. Cheers. Thanks so much". Everything about these little industries pisses me off.
  3. I have no idea if I've watched these films a dozen times or more. Some definitely, some may only be 6, 7, 8 whatever. Some will probably be a lot more than 12! I don't keep track, so have simply listed those that I'll tend to watch if I see them on TV. Anything from the 80s has probably been watched millions of times owing to it being recorded LP on a crappy VHS at the time. Any crap action movies like Con Air I would blame on my old stoner student days in the 90s.

  4. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    We can, but it's amusing to bring it up every now and then. One doesn't have to mention Scotland specifically (why bother; the Brexit agreement doesn't), but what one can now say with reasonable certainty is that the greatest damage to the stability of the union is being done by a Conservative government that was until recently being propped up by the DUP. It's delightful.
  5. Petty Things That Get On Your Nerves...

    I don't understand this one. Are you saying that your girlfriend is sitting in the same room as you, making calls on speakerphone (for god knows what reason), and that you're not to complain "because" you're getting to watch the football? i.e. you're getting to do something you like, so as part of some sort of cosmic karmic balancing act she feels the need to try and screw you over a bit? Or is it just that she would always make the calls that way (again, why?0, and it just so happens that you're in the same room watching football? Either way if she's an Eastenders fan you should be piebooting anyway.
  6. Penguins (the biscuits)

    And shit. Lame rubbish that should have been left in the 80s like Wagon Wheels. I remember the first time I tried them maybe 15 years ago. I'd already had a few Australians enthuse about how great they were, then a friend brought over a selection. I'd say they're better than Penguins, but they're still shit. The chocolate is crap and the caramel centered ones taste like any bog-standard biscuit an unimaginative granny would buy before receiving guests.
  7. Do you like religion?

    First off I'm going to say that you don't sound much like an agnostic (a term I find particularly pointless in any instance, but nevermind), to me your posts read like more those of someone with a vested interest in a religion. But whatever; if you say you're agnostic, fair enough. Apologies for the multi-quoting, but it seems the easiest way to try and understand what you're saying. RE Islam "making the most sense", I'm not really sure what you mean. "Making sense" suggests the involvement of logic, and faith and logic do not mix. Religious faith is about belief without the burden of proof. It does not involve logic. It does not "make sense". If I tell you that my religion involves a God that can turn your penis green, that's no more nonsensical than my God turning water to wine or demanding prayer or fasting. Once I've told you that any of these things are done by God, sense is out the window, because the paradigm involves something that can't be proven. WRT religious or secular countries killing people, and totting up who is ahead, it's a pretty trite debate for many reasons. Population growth, "industrialisation" of killing methods, followers of religions being responsible for killing outwith the boundaries of national politics, etc. Mainly it's a fairly unpleasant and futile debate. Well 1) there's no-one that's read every religious text that's ever existed and could therefore make a fully informed comparison, and 2) Unless there's a text that can prove the existence of the God it describes, it's nonsensical. I assume here that you're referring to the fact that scientific development and in fact wider academia was sponsored in institutions that tended to be religiously founded? I'm not really sure that it's relevant in that if science outgrows religion and offers explanations that religion cannot, then it doesn't actually matter if Pythagoras went to a religious school (and in his case I don't know if he did). It's akin to a modern-day American inventor coming up with something great and me telling them they'd never have gotten there if a bunch of Brits, Spanish and Dutch hadn't founded America. It's irrelevant. Again, I'd like to know what you mean by "rationally". There is, by definition, a leap of faith, or irrationality, required to believe in something that cannot be proven. You're asking here that I prove a negative. An irrational suggestion in of itself.
  8. Do you like religion?

    I disagree with the bolded bit. I don't think someone can have true faith in something without thinking it's true. If they don't really believe it's true then I'd posit that their faith has been tested and found wanting. Here, much like anyone who tries to coerce a family member into a religious wedding, despite knowing they don't believe in it, his family are c-nts. In the case of a wedding, or say a Christening, it's a particularly strong indictment of the pointlessness in trying to reason with the herd-like mentality of some religious people. You can test the situation and evaluate their standpoint. I've seen this one play out in real life, as I imagine a few of you have: 1) Couple is getting married. They are not religious (strictly speaking they shouldn't get married either then, but that's another issue). 2) Parent or family of one of both partners is religious, or at least want to be seen as such in their community. 3) Couple feels pressured into a religious ceremony. So, examine what's actually going on here. Either: 1) The parent of family doesn't really have faith but for social acceptance in their community they feel the need to "stick with tradition", or; 2) The parent or family does have faith in the religion, knows that the couple being married doesn't, but wants them to have a religious ceremony nonetheless, because 1), or; 3) The parent or family does have faith in the religion, and doesn't know that the couple have "lost their faith". The couple don't want to tell their family the truth and go ahead with the ceremony. The psychology of each situation is as follows: 1) Social acceptance is more important to the family than respect for the faith in question. They are happy for the a sham ceremony to take place for the look of things. They are in essence spitting in the faces of their friends and neighbours who do believe. If God (of that religion) does exist, he will know about their blasphemy and they will all go to Hell. They will be raped there by the Devil for all eternity. 2) Social acceptance is more important to the family than respect for the faith in question. They are happy for the a sham ceremony to take place for the look of things. They are in essence spitting in the faces of their friends and neighbours who do believe. If God (of that religion) does exist, he will know about their blasphemy and they will all go to Hell. They will be raped there by the Devil for all eternity. 3) Family acceptance and an easy life is more important to the couple being married than respect for the faith in question. They are happy for the a sham ceremony to take place to keep their family happy. They are in essence spitting in the faces of their family who do believe. If God (of that religion) does exist, he will know about their blasphemy and they will go to Hell. They will be raped there by the Devil for all eternity. This is the insincerity of faith in practice. It's bad enough when those that don't believe would rather mock the beliefs of their families rather than be honest with them, but worse still when those who profess to believe in the religion are happy to encourage others to blaspheme for the sake of keeping their stupid old gran or reactionary neighbours in the dark about the heathens in their midst. Personally if I was God, blasphemers would go to the worst part of Hell, because they're ripping the piss. They'd be in a worse bit than straightforwardly evil people like Hitler and Gray Glitter. Of course, the whole thing is bullshit, so it doesn't really matter, but it's always amusing watching relatively rational people tying themselves in knots trying to accommodate the moronic tenets their credulous kin still cling to.
  9. Rangers vs Aberdeen - LC Semi

    Delicious Rangers*
  10. Cheese

    I like most cheese, but I'm really not keen on the waxy ones like Edam and other such Dutch and Swiss ones. I like the stinky sweaty vegetably smelling ones, and blue ones so sharp they make you thirsty. Best cheese I ever had was called Nuns of Caen. It reeks.
  11. Lets All Laugh At Rangers Thread

    Which aspect of it do you find worse; that a Rangers fan would do something so desperate, or that they would be so thick that they did it so badly? Forgetting to change all their follows from Rangers accounts? Using Google Translate to try and write in Greek? They must have been the stupidest person going. The very stupidest.
  12. Lets All Laugh At Rangers Thread

    I see the Rangers* fans are making utter fools of themselves on Twitter again.
  13. Not exactly bandwagoning. We've all hated your lot for a lot longer than the last 6 pages.
  14. Unusual to see a Falkirk fan cheering on Rangers.
