Humanity is doomed

Bad thing! The pope is not only a bigot, he's an imbecilic bigot. Er, apologies for any offence, or anything. Can't remember if any of you are Catholic. But really: "Pope Benedict XVI has said that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behaviour is just as important as saving the rainforest from destruction." He thinks - or is professing to think - that homosexuality and transexualism/transgenderism is likely to cause the human race to "self-destruct". Aaaaaaargh.

Mega bad thing! (Yes, yes, priorities...) Whittard of Chelsea on brink of administration. But...but...but...that's where I get my flavoured coffee! What am I going to DO?!?!?! *panics* *flails*

Good thing, though: Stephen Fry podcasts about language. You might have read the blog entry, but it's better hearing him do it.

Minor irritation: What exactly was the "star" that led the Magi to Bethlehem? Scientists: Was probably a comet, supernova, planetary conjunction, etc, etc. Commenters: ZOMG NO IT WAS CLEARLY SUPERNATURAL. Me: Argh! It was a smegging invention, mentioned once, vaguely, in a book written decades after the event. It made the story sound good. (It is a good story.) The Magi probably didn't exist either - or the stable, for that matter - so the star's doubly irrelevant. Do some proper bloody work, Scientists. Like studies about coffee.

Happies later; I expect them to start with "brother eventually turned up to help me carry things to my parents'". Heh.

No, "cold is god's way of telling us to burn more catholics" to quote Blackadder.
