True, I find his zealousness (again, clearly a need for more educated folk) more off-putting than most evangelists. My main issue with his blend of atheism is the assumption that religion is the cause of all war and suffering. The Holocaust pretty much disproved that.

You could argue a bit about that, but I don't myself buy the religion-is-to-blame for wars line: it's politics and tribalism, not religion. Look at Northern Ireland - same God, after all.

The Inquisition is a bit more tricky, though.

My boyfriend has the strangest job, some of you know already he's a stand up comedian. Anyway, he does the audience warm-up in the daytime for Loose Women and the other day they had Ricky Gervais and Les Dennis on.

When the three of them were in the green room, my boyfriend convinced Les to take his clothes off and just be in a towel for the cut away shot at the beginning of the show. Of course Ricky screeched "Let's do that!! Let's do that!!". And they did.


I think he may be having a gay affair.


...although I can't talk, I ended up in G-A-Y til 4am last night, dancing the gayboys into oblivion.

I on the other hand bought a huge bag of dairy milk minis on the assumption that the door would get buzzed and it'd get rid of them quickly. The door did not get buzzed. I obviously live in an area with far too many young professionals.

This tread alone equates to roughly

Was supposed to be seeing Lee Evans at Wembley tonight. Had the tickets for over a year and decent seats as well, so gutted. :(

sometimes i think we should start more individual threads, as many topics get lost in this one. for example, recent discussions on the american election and the financial crisis could have had a thread each, and the conversations could still be going strong.

I'm with you on this, a couple of months ago when I was really bored, I almost considered proposing we do away with this thread. It was a good idea when the board was really busy with loads of pointless stuff back in the day, but these days, only 4/5 threads are posted in each day.

Frank, what say you to getting rid of this once legendary thread?
