I just read this gem about raging "Cristians Against Dinosaurs". And Flat Earth enthusiasts are still around. Hell, we still wrangle about race relations and civil rights. IS/ISIS/ISIL are running around the desert like it's a barbaric Game of Thrones spoof. Not to mention Russia and US are at it again. Even AC/DC performed at the Grammys. LoL!

I'm sick of this old school, archaic BS! Elevate already!

Humanity is so busy looking in the rearview mirror, we're about to run off the road. It's ridiculous.


/indignant, whiney rant

Like 10th century it seems?

Yeah, I'm on board with that. I'm very unapologetic towards ACDC however. That man needs a lozenge.

I think the flat Earth guys and girls don't believe - they use the theories as a game/exercise to show that you can prove that the Earth is flat, whilst not believeing it.

A bit of a debating game.

I guess that's what happens when you no longer have to grow your own food, cultivate it, preserve it... wash your laundry by hand, hang it, dry it... go into the woods and chop down trees, chop it further into firelogs, haul it back home, stack it... walk to your local water source and haul back a couple buckets full so that you can make a cup of tea.

Etc and so forth.

Idle hands... or some such thing.

Maybe, but someone, somewhere actually believes that crap. And some believe the bible is literal. And, worse, Madonna is still selling CDs and they're going to do another sequel to Ghostbusters but where is my flying car?

He really, really does.

You're right - to make you more angry.... Those people who believe the Bible is literal often push their beliefs on to their children in a very forceful manner.

As for depriving children of the knowledge of dinosaurs, that's a sin - kids LOVE dinosaurs!!

I think there is a lot of truth in your comment. If we were more occupied and focused on a goal, we would necessarily be more productive and have less time to squabble or be idiots.

Maybe that's a good argument for why humanity can't seem to progress beyond a certain point? We get to a certain point, rest on our laurels and suddenly start regressing.

Yeah, we live in a completely screwed up world and that's exactly the way they want it. Us at each other's throat and more wars to make money from. Race baiting to keep the pot stirred here at home and make more restrictive laws so they have an excuse to invade what little privacy we have left.

When Angus straps on that ax, there ain't nothin' creepy about it.

Some things I wish we would go more old-school on. I'm so sick of iphones. My daughter has one in her hands constantly. I struggle to get her to put it down. I used to be that way with books - always carrying one around and reading it. Somehow, I don't think that was as bad. Those were the good old days...

It certainly seems that way.

Because of advanced technologies, we now have more time to file complaints, file lawsuits, protest this, protest that, spy on our neighbours, pay more attention to the useless trivial things, etc etc.

So blame all the nuttiness in the world on the invention of the washing machine, microwave oven, electricity, and running water.



We don't hear Zulu tribes in Africa complaining about dinosaurs, do we ?

They're too busy milking their goats and grinding wheat into flour.

DO...NOT ... TRASH ... ACDC!

I don't care what Century it is. Some things are just sacred.


Mini Rant...

Humanity is the sum total of all opinions. And as they say, "Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one and they all stink."

You do realize dinosaurs are a lie of the devil, right? He planted all those faux skeletons to test our faith. How can you be so blind to the truth? I will pray for you, but you need to go to the church, and let the elders lay hands on you. I pray it will open your eyes to the wiles of the devil.

Cue choir:
Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

Sorry. I had a flashback.

Twenty five years from now people will still be rocking out to back in black.
Katy Perry will be long forgotten.
New doesn't mean better.

You're no doubt right but they are still last century.
They released that song in 1980. Coincidentally, at the height of the cold war...and now they are back and we're grudging on Russia again.

How about the fact that no one can seem to release a genuine NEW movie anymore. Ok I don't really mean no one... but certainly almost no one. Everything's a sequel, a prequel, a remake, a reboot, a reboot of a reboot of a reboot (looking at you spiderman). Creativity seems to have died and everyone just looks back and says "hey that was a good movie, let's just redo it instead of coming up with something original." It's like they just keep hitting rewind.
