Why are so many people pleased at other people's misfortune?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 15, 2018:
There is a strong and inherent need in people for justice, however not objective justice or real justice in any sense, a subjective personal justice, a sense of balance and fairness that no one else if having a better deal than you. If I lack X in my life and you have X in abundance, I envy you and feel it is an unfair situation, if you therefore suffer from something unpleasant happening to you, that has not happened to me, at a subconscious level I feel the balance has been redressed and that life is fair and my lack of X will be consequently redressed by natural justice at some point as your abundance of X has been. This leads to the extrapolated belief that if something bad happens to someone for no readily apparent reason it is deserved punishment for some past crime or injustice or punishment for something they will do in the future. It is childish superstitious thinking with no basis in reality but fulfils a primal urge for life to be fair and for no one to have gotten the better of you.
I being athiest try remember faith gives others comfort and hope etc but I myself see this as false...
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 15, 2018:
Faith is dangerous, since it is self perpetuating like a virus. I have cancer, I have faith it will go because god will protect me. I still have cancer, my faith was not strong enough, because I went to the doctor as well. I STILL have cancer and it is getting worse, probably because even when I stopped seeing the doctor I still kept taking my medicine because my faith in god is not total. I stopped seeing the doctor, I stopped taking my meds, I pray every day, I really believe god will cure his good and faithful servant... I... I ...oh He had cancer, and though he had great faith, the Lord gathered him unto himself, we therefore must have faith that the Lord knows what he is doing.

When to speak is a crime and to remain silent is a crime, the only option left is to talk unintelligible gobbledygook and accuse those who have the gall to announce that they fail to understand of idiocy and Prejudice. We live in a world analogous of the "emperor's new clothes" where all the honest little boys have been gagged and tailors have not only seized the throne, but have sold it and opened up the palace as a bingo hall.

I would be inclined to disbelieve the answer in either case, since the only way to verify it would be to die and at that point I would have lost interest.
How does an all knowing PERFECT GOD make a defective person and allow evil?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 12, 2018:
This is a great one for confusing creationists me : How does an all knowing PERFECT GOD make a defective person and allow evil? Theist: God has given us the gift of free will, we are created perfect but can choose to do evil? Me : which makes us imperfect? Theist: Of course. Me : So Someone with evil in their heart is potentially evil and so cannot be perfect correct? Theist: That's right (smug smile) Me : Where did Evil come from? Theist: What? Me: If everything was created by God and comes from god where did evil come from. Theist: Tut, evil did not COME from anywhere it is a choice made by people. Me: So what makes Evil evil? Theist: If a thing or action goes against god or his teachings it is evil Me : I see so how did we know? Theist: What? Me: how did we know what was against the will of god? Theist: SIGH it's in the bible Me: So Adam and Eve had a bible? Theist: No of course not they talked to god directly and he told them what not to do. Me: So he explained evil to them? Theist: Yes Me: So God is potentially evil then? Thesit; What? Me: If he could explain it, he must have been able to understand it, so therefore he was potentially capable of doing it, which means he had evil in his heart and so was potentially evil. Theist: NO, god is perfect, not evil at all, pure good. Me: But they broke his rules and he got pissed at them, that's in the bible Theist: NO, yes, no hang on, that was the devil, in the form of a snake, he tempted them. Me; Who made the snake? Theist: God did Me: And the snake was evil? Theist: yes Me: So god made the snake who is the devil who is the epitome of Evil, the personification of evil, but god is totally good? Theist: erm...... Me: How? Theist: God works in mysterious ways, god's ways are not our ways, you're reading it out of context, FECK OFF heathen!! I ask you, how in this day and age do educated, mature adult people still believe this blatant crap!

Why do all religions say they are the true religion yet even within those religions they still ...
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 12, 2018:
Behold the Man by Michael Moorcock tells the story of a fundamentalist Christian who travels back in time to meet Jesus, finds him unsatisfactory and too Jewish, so kills him and takes his place creating "proper" Christianity as God wants it to be. Even going so far as to have himself crucified. In the mean time the real Jesus has recovered from his injuries and and amnesia and finds himself the object of adoration and a messiahship he finds blasphemous, so runs away. This novel is a masterpiece of allegorical fiction about just how people become obcessed with their own idea of how religion should be, having no respect for the the truth or of the origin. There was an attempt to make a TV Twilight Zone episode of the story, but it was blocked until they changed the lead from Jesus to Elvis Presley. (the writing credit goes to a young George R.R. Martin and is called “The Once and Future King,” but is clearly a rewrite post dating Moorecock by 17 years.)

I was once commissioned to make a Lau stick for a Boku man in Louisiana, during a period of my life when I was making bespoke accessories and jewelry. Interesting project, just shows you how religious people of all strains are willing to pay a lot of money for basically a stripped and decorated graveyard tree branch. He was happy with it and I was happy with the cash, win, win.

The only good thing about season 2 of space 1999 was the theme tune, they wrecked it, but since the series was a product of ITC interfering with the Gerry Anderson studios organisation in the first place it is understandable. Truth of the matter is that Space 1999 was originally going to be a sequel to the fantastic 1970's show U.F.O. one of the most definitive pieces of Sci-Fi to come out of the UK ever, highly influential and powerfully written (if you have not seen it, do so) U.F.O. 1999 was supposed to take place 20 years after the initial series, set entirely on Moonbase one from the original show, now Earths first line of defense against the savage human harvesting aliens. Armed with a fleet of Eagle transporters and Hawk fighter/interceptors the series would have been great. However the Italian co producers of the project and ITC entertainment wanted to cash in on the almost guaranteed upcoming hits Star Trek TMP and Star Wars and so wanted a space odyssey instead. The whole program was quickly reworked and Mission Impossible stars Martin Landau & Barbara Bain brought in to appeal to the American market, the Hawk fighters were dropped (appearing in only one episode) the whole thing became anti-nuclear apocalyptic moralising. Though moderately successful, it on the whole bombed and ITC dropped their Italian partners, brought in some American crew who had worked on Star Trek and dropped Barry Morse as Victor Bergman perhaps the most popular character in the show replacing him with Catherina von Schell (aka Catherine Schell) as cliche shape changing alien Maya, but other wise just reprising her role from Moon Zero 2. It went down as well as Liberace on an oil rig, what people loved about the show was edited out, what they hated was bulled up and more added. Blake's 7 on the other hand was something else. Just as Doctor Who was supposed to be originally titled Doctor who? the BBC graphics department who charged by the character, left out the apostrophe turning the opening graphic in to Blakes7 to save money, the show was Launched to pacify ravenous Doctor Who fans, calm down Terry Nation (who was fighting for rights to the Daleks with the BBC) and go up against Space 1999. Nation in typical fashion decided to completely reverse Star Trek and basically do Space Pirates on a stolen ship. In this Universe the Federation are the bad guys, the rebels are useless, the eponymous hero was written out after series one, the main villain is a bitch and the hero is a thieving murderous bastard. The sheer chemistry between Paul Darrow as Avon and Catherine Pierce as Servalan with comic relief from Michael Keating as Vila drove the show from season to season, a series of vocal performances from Peter Tuddenham gave every computer in...

Well, unless you are of Afro-Caribbean decent or are an actual dog it is highly unlikely you's ever be the first to die in an American Horror Movie. If it is a British Horror film, you've a better chance of dying first if you are a minor celebrity doing a cameo appearance so your name can appear on the poster. In an Italian horror you should really be a catholic priest.

So I let them have it with both barrels, paedophilia, polygamy, book of Abraham, teachings of Brigham Young, racist ban on black, blood atonement, Adam God doctrine, DNA, archaeology. After half an hour the Utah mishie, screams at me, "Your not going to convert me, your not going to damage my faith, an starts baring his testimony over and over like a broken record, while weeping profusely. The Irish Mishie companion, goes red with embarrassment and excuses them both, literally dragging his companion out of our house, one and only time I've known them leave without a prayer.

Gorgo and Me by Len Hazell Just when you think your day cannot get any worse, when you've got your first acting job in months and your car breaks down, when you break a heel on your last pair of heels and the cat decides to be sick in your flats; that... that is the day you nearly get run down in the street by a truck driven by an ass in a gorilla suit. I got up, dusted down my tuchas, and marched up to the window. “What in the Hell do you think you are doin'” I demanded. He rolled his eyes a bit in what I assume was an act of contrition, but since those were the only bit of the real him showing, it was a pretty wild guess. “ You Selena?” he asked in a muffled voice from under the mask. “How'd you know my name?” I demanded. The big ape then pulls off his own head and reveals himself. I'll be honest I seen worse, bit of a fuggly face, but smiling a big dumb good natured smile. “Who's askin'” I demanded. “ My name's George,” he said. “Phil asked me to come get you, said you got car trouble or somethink.” Typical of the way my luck was running, I swore off movies, especially B-movies back in the forties, I'm stage now, legit theatre, but this wunderkind asks the old man for a favour and I get strong armed. Heart o'gold that's me, heart o' gold and at the end of the day a hundred bucks is a hundred bucks. “Okay, I'm Selena, thanks for knocking me on my butt Cheater.” Monkey boy grins and leans over to open the door for me. I tried to make a dignified show of going around the hood of the pick up to get in to what looked Noah's own pick up truck and sat down. “Where we goin'?” I asked. “Bronson Canyon.” he tells me wrenching the gears. I sighed, no surprise there, every wannbe film hack who can point a camera films in Bronson Canyon, that pit can be anywhere from Arabia to the surface of the moon and has been. I pulled the script out of my bag and took another look at it, MONSTER FROM MARS by Wyott Ordung, I read. There's a name to inspire confidence. He looked over and grunted. “That's been changed,” he told me. “The whole script?” I asked. “Nah,” he laughed. “Just the title, the flick is now called ROBOT MONSTER FROM OUTTER SPACE catchy huh?” “Yeah, like lice.” As if to agree George began scratching his hairy body suit. “I'm the Robot Monster.” He declared proudly pounding his breast. “You're dressed as a gorilla.” I pointed out. He grinned that big lovable grin again but had the decency to blush a little. “Yeah I know.” he replied. “It's my own suit, that's why I got the part. See Phil wanted a real robot, but like that costs a lot, so he has this brilliant idea and calls me.” “So why isn't it called gorilla monster from outer space then?” ...

Don't know if I will be welcome here as I just quit "Memes R Us" over censorship issues.

Censorship $beep$in', F'---ing, stinks, SH::::g B@$ !@_s OH Damn!!!
My "leaving the church" story's pretty interesting.
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 2, 2018:
great story, mine is a bit more complex, I'll post in in full here one day.
How do you decide which books to keep and which to let go?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 2, 2018:
I use the method of waiting until my wife threatens to divorce me if I don't get rid of "some" of them and then buy bigger book shelves to make it look like I have less.
Who is the true Mormon?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 2, 2018:
Not the first time, SWK also called the teaching of BY that Adam was God incarnate an abomination. It is interesting to not though that while Bring'em Young is still honoured as the second prophet of the church, not one single, not any original teaching of Brigham Young is considered doctrine by the LDS anymore and most of his teachings if practiced at all (or even advocated) are considered grounds for excommunication. The man was a foul, bigoted, murderous, syphilitic, horror of a human being, who was probably murdered in a conspiracy between three of his wives and his doctor to poison him by an overdose of arsenic.
Today, we broke 101 members. Is everyone doing their job of telling folks to fuck off?

Has anyone here managed to successfully market their self-published novel?
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 1, 2018:
I use self publishing only as a form of copyrighting, back in the old days I used to send a sealed and dated copy of my work to myself. Didn't stop me getting ripped off, but since then I've been putting kindle copies live on Amazon. I've sold a few but I don't actively market them.
A friend just got back from his honeymoon.

Yuck
Historically dishonest

You picked my favourite three bad apples there, Dallin Hoax, the late unlamented Boyd "fudge" Packer and M. Russel Bollox
I was challenged to write a story recently in 101 words or less, so here it is.

Every politician knows that if you have prince charming kill the Boogeyman you had better have an Evil Troll hiding under the bridge, or else your own paladins might decide the real bad guy is you.

The Christian Taliban are coming! Do you think that statement is justified, or am i exaggerating?
LenHazell53 comments on Jul 31, 2018:
Perhaps "Returning" would be better than coming, the history of the last two thousand years are littered with the atrocities of the Christian reign of terror.
I was talking with a coworker who's evangelical Christian last weekend and he asked me why I no ...

Try High Anxiety and What's Up Doc, she's great in both... "Eunice? That's a person called Eunice"
Why people say RIP (Rest in Peace) for anyone who has died?
LenHazell53 comments on Jul 31, 2018:
I suppose may also (later) have had something to do with the days of the resurrection men, digging up the recently deceased and selling them on.
Can men and women just be friends?
LenHazell53 comments on Jul 31, 2018:
Yes
A daily movement keeps the body needing to use that paper.

Alliteration allows for ample anally-retentive acquisition of andragogy activity

Wow, love it.
Defenestration is the act of throwing someone or something out of a window.
LenHazell53 comments on Jul 30, 2018:
Hasn't this word been discussed before? EDIT sorry my mistake that was Defenestrate Defenestrate is to throw someone out of a window Defenistration is the act of being thrown out of a window from the Latin fenestra "window."
