I have had the unfortunate displeasure of watching a little of “Hotter than my daughter“. I have no idea why it was on that channel but sometimes shit happens, and this was a case of that! And it was vile. They were meant to help people and honestly the people left worse off than when they began and you would wonder how that was possible. Apparently there are depts of horrifying that you cannot imagine but this show just goes there. Watch at your own peril!
I am glad I don’t live in Indonesia. If you masturbate, the penalty is decapitation. Not sure which head in the case of the man… but neither will really do!
I was reading a post or two about Freemasons in Malta. Honestly! I have never seen so much misinterpretation. Admittedly Freemasonry seems elusive but this originally occurred during the prohibition when clubs were prohibited and they had to go underground.
I must start by pointing out that I am not a Freemason but I see no reason to be out for the kill. After all, I am not part of my local football club or my local bridge club so why should I be a member of my local Freemason’s club!
Meanwhile, I thought I should state that I personally think that Mr Joe Zahra is a hypocrite and a low life. Whatever the reason he fell out with the lodge, he broke an oat he made to them when he “secretly” filmed their cermony. He obviously has no concept of respect and honour. Is it not also illegal to film someone against their wishes. Is it not morally questionable to break an oat and broadcast a private session?
As for Martyn Attard, he is correct, if they make good men better… well Mr Attard did not stand a chance, because the basis is that he was already a good man! He speaks about leading a lifestyle of sex, power and money yet he was so naive he “fell” for the masons. Perhaps the alcohol and drugs finally got to him and he now sees askew. Maybe it is his family who are still living in the dark ages and “pray” for him so that he is enlightened, as though you cannot be both a Catholic and a Freemason. If fact they expect you to believe in a God / have a religion and you are to maintain your religion throughout your membership with the masons!
And to point out the obvious… the masonic family need not necessarily be rich but could be a) generous and/or b) many in number – hence the large sums donated to charity. Is this not a good point?
Finally, being a mason is a choice.. you don’t have to belong and you can choose to leave. So what is the damn issue?
Yes it may be a society with secrets… but so is say Cadbury’s. See if they will give you their recipe to their chocolate?
Talk about being blinkered!
Unreligious: “If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?”
Priest: “No, not if you did not know.”
Unreligious: “Then why did you tell me?”
Think about it! Is it fair? Yet it is done. It is the story of Adam and Eve all over again. Apparently, we do not learn from our mistakes! Let’s take the rest of the world down with us!
When someone thinks it is funny (why else would he have done it?) to urinate over a symbol of respect towards people who sacrificed their lives for our freedom, you know that we have gone beyond a joke. Seriously, what was going through his head? It’s not like he is the thickest of people… he does attend university! But he is definitely the most disrespectful. I must say I do agree with the judge… a prison sentence would not be fruitful (and a waste of taxpayers money) and a community sentence might teach him some respect. Mind you, 250 hours is only 6 weeks work, and for a student is not very long. Perhaps a longer sentence … but hopefully he will learn some respect.
In case you actually get frisky in an ambulance (strange I know…. but it must have happened as a law has been passed in Utah), bear in mind that it may be illegal like it is in Utah! Besides your charges, if you are a woman, you will also be named and shamed in the papers. The man gets away with the naming and shaming. How’s that for equality.
Don’t forget your sword if you are going to Trinity College in Ireland. It is illegal to walk through without a sword! Hmmm. Talk about knife crime.
Liverpool has been recently known as the Capital of Culture. How is this for culture…
Well as you know in most places going topless is illegal. Except that to every rule there are exceptions! In Liverpool, you can go topless if you work in a tropical fish store or in a bank serving foreign currency!
Fun law for a change!!
As I pointed out in a previous post, Israel like to keep their Sabbath Holy. Therefore another law states that it is illegal for a chicken to lay eggs on a Friday or Saturday. What strikes my curiosity is what do people do to stop them laying? Butt Plugs??
You know lots of people have funny rules in their house relating to the bathrooms … like don’t forget to close the toilet seat when done, remember to flush when done, close the lid on the toothpaste.
However if you are in someone’s apartment in Switzerland and it is past 10pm, it is actually illegal to flush. Honestly, it is not your host!!
