Now heres a new one about the Scientologists - Silent births.

I was thinking about America on the walk into work this morning, and how we used to love it. America was like our drunken baby, stumbling around the place, making us laugh, making us smile, making us roll our eyes as it stuffed sandwiches of ignorance into the VCR of the middle east but there was still something sort of endearing about it. Then someone gave drunken baby a gun to play with and now we're all ducking behind the sofa or slowly approaching drunken baby to try and persuade it to drop the damned thing.
Honestly, listening to drunken baby carp on and on about how theres no objectivity in the media is getting a bit creepy, like the kid was dropped on the head and can't think so much as repeat the same phrases over and over.
I know many fine people live with drunken baby but it would seem like all attention is focused on it right now.

Edit: Oh yeah, I meant to say, I have an urge to print out this information and start putting it under the wipers of every god damned gas guzzling monstrosity driving around on our pathetic little infrastructure.

But but but, the research was done by those wooly pinko-commie liberals at Trinity! It's a load of bollocks! Now, get the hell outta my way!

SUV Owner: I think I am right
"Liberal" Media: But you're wrong, for the following reasons, based on science and a careful study of accidents and deaths over the past year crossreferenced with the Garda reports on the vehicles involved as well as the circumstances
SUV Owner: You're not being OBJECTIVE! This is a witch hunt! Now if you'll excuse me, I need to take up twice as much space as anyone else on the roads, even though I'm driving on my own.

I remember going to a BBQ at Drew and Ninas a couple of years back, and I went to a local shop for something. I was forced off the narrow roads there twice because of SUV's driving around. It was insane!

Print away, though of course you realise it won't achieve anything other than the destruction of a few more rainforests as the selfish gits won't listen to that any more than they've listened to any of the other numerous reasons why SUVs are EVIL. Ok, so I was eyeing up a special Animal edition Mitsi Warrior the other day but I have no serious intention of buying one and wouldn't unless I needed it for the purpose for which such vehicles are invented ie dragging bales of hay and sheep feed up mountainside dirt tracks and through rivers.

Thing is, most of them can't even be used for that. They're just cheapass ineffecient engines stuck in a gigantic carcass of a car that doesn't even have the pulling power of the vehicles that inspired them.

Fair point, well pointed. Should I ever require something for such purposes I would in fact be far more likely to go for something that might actually survive the job such as a beat up old Army jeep or an old style Landy.
