This is a question I don't understand the attraction

Smaug says: Ricky Gervais. Lesbian pr0n. Going into a crowded bar, purely because it's crowded. All these things seem to be popular with everybody else, but I just can't work out why. What leaves you cold just as much as it turns everyone else on?

Whiney whine whine
Self-righteous meat eaters - I dont eat meat. I dont go around shoving this down peoples throats, I never preach about it, I never said I dont eat fish (altho I dont as I dont like it) so why do people always feel the need to lecture me about it and whine at me about vegetarians being whiney/ not vegetarian enough? Is it some kind of self doubt that meat eaters have that make them assume that anyone who doesnt eat it must be judging them?

Anti-religious nuts - I'm not religious but this really winds me up. Yeah religion has been used as an excuse in war and whatnot, and it is annoying when religious canvassers follow you down the street with leaflets, but Ive never personally known a religious person who gets preachy about it. So many people are waaaay over the top against it and go on as if its some new breakthrough, the athiest thing. it's like saying 'Hey, I know it's a nuts and innovative concept, but i'm starting to think that Americas getting a bit corporate, what do you think?'. At the end of the day, what is it that people get so wound up about? 'Hey this guy is such a bastard, he wants to think that there is some point to life that makes death less scary. What an absolute cunt'.

Cheryl Cole - 'the nations darling' - i dont actually know anyone who likes her and she is manufactured to within an inch of a life. I'm sure she got married to mask the fact that she was racist and the whole cheating thing was a ploy (that worked) to get people writing into magazines saying how sorry they feel for her and how they totally feel on a level. I almost want to start watching the x factor just so that I can stop watching it in disgust. I keep seeing her described as a 'fresh faced natural beauty' as well which is probably the opposite to the truth. Give me every piece of plastic surgery known to man and I'd scrub up pretty well too.

Peter Andre - for the past few months everytime i walk into a newsagents every magazine has a massive picture of his ugly mug and a headline which is either along the lines of 'i cant believe jordan is talking about me again', 'i'm finally breaking my silence over jordan', 'i would never lower myself to talk about how i think jordan is a pleb' or 'i wish i could spend more time with the disabled one who isnt mine but unfortunately most of the time i cannot be pictured with him' 'here is a picture of me in my pants talking about how I cant believe that Jordan is walking around in her underwear'.

My housemate (and people like him) - he's a twat. Most probably everyone has realised this but he hasn't. Yesterday he told me he could remember the first RHCPs album coming out when he was 9 (he is 22) and I said 'no way they've been around for about 30 years'. Then he looked it up on the internet and said 'actually they've been around since 1983' in a really smug way as if this made him right.

Apple - it's just really annoying how people who work at Apple think they're part of some kind of higher order when really they've actually just joined some form of quasi religious robotic cult.

that aimed at my post earlier?

I don't think it's self-righteous to point out other people's hypocrisy. For someone to claim to be a vegetarian (because it's wrong to eat animals), but to then eat fish, is totally hypocritical.

I think you'll find it's vegetarians who are self-righteous.

In your post earlier did you have the complete opposite views of everything that I just said? If so then yes, if you like

"Yeah religion has been used as an excuse in war and whatnot"
"war and whatnot" being pretty much every war, genocide or act of torture in human history...just a little thing to get upset over, then. And it's not being used as an excuse, in most cases it's the driving force behind the most unspeakable and evil acts.

Fuck religion, it deserves no respect.

Lazy generalisations don't immediately become trufax simply because you do a swear at the end...

Have a quick look through the wars of the last century - for the sake of brevity, concentrate on those which claimed more than 1m lives. Then organise them into 'caused by religion', and 'not caused by religion'.

They all fit rather neatly into the second category.

Doi me
Oh yeah, I apologise, I'm sure the wars were started directly because of religion and had nothing to do with people making the kind of generalisations that you just made. Religion has been used in a bad way, therefor all religious people are stupid, deserve no respect and should all die in some kind of mass murder. Possibly involving gas coming out of showers.

I wouldn't like to generalise this much
But I do certainly think religion has a lot to answer for.

Most religious people I know think it gives them some moral high ground, and that believing in a God makes them a "Good Person". These are then the people that are often pious, unthinking and spiteful in many ways, not to mention being liberal with interpretation of the law in what they see as "minor" issues. (For example, driving without an MOT).

A good example was shown on "The Big Question" this last Sunday. "Should Mother Theresa be a Saint?". The man that told of the money directed away from a hospital (by her) to the Church was largely ignored, but the man that professed to have been cured by her prayer was given air time. He was a self-confessed schizophrenic and bipolar sufferer!!! Yeah, let's believe a miracle rather than fact, shall we? After all, she was such a lovely person, right...
