Is you always the last to know? No good, no good.

Surely your life cannot be this sad?

I mean, what would Oasis think?

They´d think I´m an obsessed drunk twat who should get a life if my heart was in it.

I own a tambourine of me own for the records... you´re messing with the wrong one, mate.

I could never give a shit. Alrite? Oasis was just an inevitable result.

I have begun to realise recently that I have picked up my grandmothers habit of being a slave to stupid, completely illogical and unrational superstition.




Satanic superstition??? That's sort of an oxymoron isn't it?

Satanic and superstitions...those two things cancel each other out. Being a slave to illogical beliefs and the compulsive behaviors associated with them are hardly Satanic in my opinion. Having fun with traditional superstitions is one thing. Actually believing this nonsense is not good.

An anathema, yes.

Here's a nice treat...

"Surely the notion that great lumps of rock whirling in space knew something about your day that you didn't must take a bit of a knock from the fact that there was suddenly a new lump of rock out there that nobody had known about before.
That must throw a few calculations out, mustn't it?
What about all those star charts and planetary motions and so? We all knew (apparently) what happened when Neptune was in Virgo, and so on, but what about when Rupert was rising? Wouldn't the whole of astrology have to be rethought? Wouldn't now perhaps be a good time to own up that it was all just a load of hogwash and instead take up pig-farming, the principles of which were founded on some kind of rational basis?
Gail Andrews had taken it all reasonably well. She was just starting to recover from the initial onslaught, when she made the rather serious mistake of trying to shake Tricia off by talking smoothly about diurnal arcs, right ascensions and some of the more abstruse areas of three-dimensional trigonometry.
To her shock she discovered that everything she delivered to Tricia came right back at her with more spin on it than she could cope with. Nobody had warned Gail that being a TV bimbo was, for Tricia, her second stab at a role in life. Behind her Chanel lip gloss, her coupe sauvage and her crystal blue contact lenses lay a brain that had acquired for itself, in an earlier, abandoned phase of her life, a first class degree in mathematics and a doctorate in astrophysics."
--Douglas Adams, Mostly Harmless

It is hogwash. Again, it is Greek hogwash. Why don't people listen? (Not Q, but others whom he must continue to explain this to)

Fuck it. It is all real. Star particles and mini novas, gas and rock can explain your financial situation! AND, fortune cookies are the mere cousin to tarot cards, but none the less real as well.

Superstitions are either silly irrational beliefs, or common sense dressed up.

A black cat running in front of you - what does it matter?
Opening an umbrella inside - A broken peice of china!

I don't believe in superstitions, but I do have believe in common sense!

>>It's like talking to a finished mad lib.

I was thinking of Zippy the Pinhead myself, or perhaps just a bot, but I like yours better.

The only difference is, the mad libs I've encountered usually feature the word "penis" once or twice.

Zippy the Pinhead! Yes! I like yours better. Except Zippy usually contains charming pictures of roadside kitsch to distract us from the madness.

The popular superstitious belief that inflation is caused by rising prices!

Compared to that one, umbrellas are nothing!
