Church persecutes former member for "sexually immoral" relationship.

Way to undermine everything good about organized religion, you fuckheads.  

Here. Have some funny to counterbalance the rage

My favourite is Two Damsels One Chalice. XD

Arundati Roy tells us the true story behind "India's 9/11". (I swear I snort everytime I hear that phrase.) 

As if you needed any more reasons to love her. 

And just to cheer you up after that incisive dissection of human asshattery, he be some Pratchett quotes:

"I'll be more enthusiastic about encouraging thinking outside the box when there's evidence of any thinking going on inside it."

"In 1997, as a presenter at the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) awards ceremony, he (Gregory Peck) said, "It just seems silly to me that something so right and simple has to be fought for at all." 

What a lovely old man he was. *noogies him*

Here's something Interesting:  The 26 Most Disturbing Kid Movies Ever

I don't know about the rest but GODDAMN IT, I've spent seventeen years suppressing my memories of Watership Down and now this thing has to go and dreg it all up again. MY INNER CHILD IS GOING TO HAVE NIGHTMARES TONIGHT, I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY. 

Seriously, that movie scared seven kinds of hell out of me when I was a kid. I watched it when I was about four and didn't have enough grasp of English to quite follow the plot, but there was shooting and frothing dogs and thunder and lightning and goddamn is those weren't the scariest fucking bunnies I'd ever seen. It scarred me for life. The sheer trauma made me grow up regarding rabbits with great suspicion. I had nightmares of being chased by a psychotic Bugs Bunny till I was ten. 

Weirdly though, I didn't remember the soundtrack "Bright Eyes" at all until Stephen Gately's version came out when I was in my early teens. And then I fell in love with both versions of the song. I thought it was sweet and mellow and romantic, until some wise ass informed me that it was the soundtrack to the Scary Bunny Movie. It was then that I made the connection.

"Bright eyes, burning like fire...." 

The song I had pegged as a bittersweet melody about a dearly beloved being lovingly remembered against the backdrop of a romantic sunset, was actually about the glowing orbs of rabid psycho bunnies that had plagued my childhood. 

My life is such a farce sometimes. 

Speaking of cartoons, I have a confession to make. Everytime I watched Loony Tunes, I cheered on Sylvester Cat. Everyday I would tune in with the vain hope that maybe today the gods would relent and Sylvester would finally be able to out-smart that goddamn irritating bird and snack its puny yellow ass (Shut up, I was seven). Sylvester wasn't a bad cat, he was just underfed by his cruel owners and what person with a beating heart could blame him for wanting to eat that smug little featherbrain who kept braining him with things? I grew very disillusioned when this didn't happen. Years later, I still went out of my way to punch Tweetie Bird in the face whenever we passed the soft toy aisle of the toy store. Die you goddamn bird, die! 

And before you ask, you don't even want to know what I wanted to do to that fucking Road Runner. 

ETA: Can anyone tell me why The Song of The South is said to be racist? I don't get it.

You know, it's a disturbing trend that more and more things that you enjoy, like sex, chocolates and coffee, turn out to be good for you after all. WTF, universe? Just when we thought we had you figured out too.

Personally, I just blog 'cause I like yammering about myself to other people. This has now been scientifically proven to be therapeutic. What a pity they wasted all that money on a scientific survey instead of just asking me. I woulda told 'em. 

In other news - stomach flu. I kid you not. 

D'you think blogging will turn out to be good for that too? You can't tell me that what can help with AIDS and cancer can't also be good for stomach flu. 

Dear Immune System,

WTF d'you think you're doing? You are about as useful as a U.N Human Rights committee. Two kinds of flu in as many weeks is completely unacceptable. That's it. You're fired.

Summarily yours,

P.S: Random HP-related thought for the day - you aren't seriously telling me that Elvendork is an actual name? And that JKR just called it to the attention of sadistic pea-brained baby-naming parents the world over? *quivers with horror*
