That's exactly right Tony, he does :lol:

Hmm, what to consign to the Luggage... I would have to say

Doctors who graduated with a C- average and still think they know everything and, oh yes, my fourth grade teacher. She had a habit of screaming "DO YOU PEOPLE THINK I AM UP HERE FOR MY HEALTH?" I never knew how to respond when that came up.
Aha! So, Bob's yer uncle... very clever.

Litter, all of it everywhere & constantly. It makes our road side verges unsightly & I hate it.
Best wishes,

Casinos, Gambling Halls Whatever you want to call them!!! Yes, Yes, Yes I used Three exclamation points.

They are talking about bringing THREE of the Consarned things to within 100 miles of my home. There are already three in the dag-nabbed area already sucking the life out of the easily mis-led and making addicts out of those who would otherwise be ... Oh I don't know just plain folk who go home at night instead of being enticed by the cushy surroundings and bright lights that pass for excitement.

...thank you for letting me rant. My ex-husband spent his entire retirement savings at one of those places and that helped to speed the inevitable divorce up quite quickly once I found out that $497,000 US was gone from his 401k.

backs off the podium and takes a deep breath... tis ok you are not there any more...

Hmm... What to consign to the fiery pits of Twoflower's laundry...

Anyone with an IQ below 80 (and I'm being generous here)
Shallow celebrities and their tabloid counterparts
Egotistical, amorous teenagers

The top half of the volume control on iPods, before all the teenagers I have to share my commute with go deaf.

Aha. If it weren't for the fact that they were used by normal people, I'd get rid of all the iPods in the world.

It may seem like an unusual request from a teenager, but I'd like to get rid of the world's supply of rap, and that stupid 'rave' music where everyone dances repeatedly until they pass out from a combination of eardrum rupture and cheap takeaway pizza.

All religions...........

It seems that many religions boil down to 'be nice to other people, and you'll get a reward'. Surely if religion had not existed, people would not have been persuaded/terrified into being morally correct, and therefore we'd ended up in a real damn mess. In this day and age, there's a lot of reasons not to be religious, and some people think that means we'll end up being morally incorrect. The problem is that it actually seems to be happening: People who never got 'do not steal' or 'do not kill' hammered into their heads are now doing exactly that, apparently with virtually nil guilt for it.
I think that people should be able to acquire morals and be nice to each other without the threat of eternal pain hanging over them. Therefore, I say, yes, get rid of religion. But make sure parents teach their kids some damn manners.

If that were really the case, there wouldn't be a problem. It's the "kill everyone who doesn't agree", and "give all your money to the church", and "persecute gays, women, and anyone who likes having sex" that causes trouble.

People who don't have religion choose to live by a certain standard of behaviour, in order to ensure survival of a community. Atheists are perfectly capable of moral behaviour, whch has nothing to do with a fear of damnation. And if you think that people are killing and stealing more these days, read a book on religion in the middle ages, or life in the slums of Victorian England. It will blow your mind!

To the oblivion inside the Luggage... a good start is
-intollerant people
-people full of predjudice and hate
-people so full of greed that there is no space for anything else inside them (this is a long list)
-people who hurt animals saying "they are just animals, here to serve us" 'and you're just an idiot here to show us what an idiot is
-people who hurt other people just because they're weaker or unable to fight

This is what comes to mind without thinking too much.

I live by the philosophy of "What you do comes back to you" If you are evil, eventually, at LEAST one bad thing will occur.

Hoobastank has a song that says "How do you know we're not ALL headed in the same direction? We won't find out until we're there"

Ok, Consigned to the Luggage... The Supreme Court, either IL or der Big Bunny, reversed ex-Gov Rod Blago...vich's law refusing grandparent visitation in IL. WOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! !!!!! !!!!!

After I get back from Rhode Island on or about December 27th, I am going to (all by myself, no lawyer) file for it and pursue it. My Damned Ex-Daughter-in-Law has refused to let me see my grandchildren for 6 years... I SHALL PREVAIL!!!!!!!!!

I know this will mean I will have to get her third child presents for X-mas and birthdays too, BUT, I am a far bigger person than she is. I may even bring her out here with the two boys if it is allowed by her mentally unstable father and idiot mother, just to keep the peace and not make that poor child feel left out. :D :D :D :D :D :twisted: Gonna get my way, one way or the other Those kids need exposure to more than the slums of Rockford IL, and what better place than a couple visits a year to Grandma's house in the boonies on 51.43 acres of unspoiled woodlands :lol:

Hmm... The original request was to remove all religions. Surely if there were no religions, there would be no religions for the religions to war against.
(?)

People who don't have religion choose to live by a certain standard of behaviour, in order to ensure survival of a community. Atheists are perfectly capable of moral behaviour, whch has nothing to do with a fear of damnation. And if you think that people are killing and stealing more these days, read a book on religion in the middle ages, or life in the slums of Victorian England. It will blow your mind!


Of course atheists are perfectly capable of moral behaviour. I am myself, after all. Not disputing that. Or the fact that people didn't kill/steal hundreds of years ago. I was simply making sweeping generalizations in order to confine my rant to a single paragraph, rather than several.

TV chefs who want us to complicate the most complicated meal of the year to produce, and make us think it's not Christmas unless we have a nervous breakdown catering for it.

If it pleases the honourable members, I should like to consign several things to the luggage; namely...

1.) Pease pudding, because it lurks unseen and stealthy in its evilness, on otherwise innocent looking sandwiches on buffet tables, before striking my unsuspecting tastebuds like a ninja. A ninja who tastes faintly of vomit.

2.) Coffee shops which encourage the serving staff to harangue you with twenty questions when all you want is coffee. No nuts, no chocolate or cocoa or steamed milk, or evaporated cream, or a muffin. Really people, I don't want a muffin. If ever do want a muffin, you'll be the first person I tell. I promise. Until that day JUST GIVE MY COFFEE, GOD DAMN YOU! Ahem! Sorry. :oops:

3.) Bus and train timetables, for taunting me with their accurate and very precise looking misinformation, propaganda and outright lies.

4.) Women's t-shirts with writing on the chest area, or trousers with writing on the rear-end. I'm a compulsive reader. If I see some writing anywhere I must know what it says. If I see a notice posted on a lampost by the council, I have to read every word of it. I actually read all of the posters in the doctor's waiting room and the notices in newsagents windows. The trend for writing on the, erm, womanly areas of women's clothing has led to misunderstandings...

5.) Pubs that sell toasties. On at least three occasions I've wandered from one pub into another and the combination of sharp changes in lighting, booze induced dizziness and the smell of toast have convinced me I'm having a stroke. It's a stress I can do without, quite frankly.

6.) My cat's new game, whereby he likes to perch on a high spot in darkened rooms and chirrup into my ear as I amble past. While I may not automatically be making a call of nature when I saunter through the living room at three A.M., I certainly am after he's done that.

7.) The complete written output of Piers Anthony. Right down to his shopping lists. When it comes to that man's work, I'm a hard liner. ;)

8.) That odd smell that emanates from behind the fridge-freezer. I have no idea what's causing it and it's been there so long now, that I'm afraid to look.

9.) Noel Edmonds.

10.) The curiously entrenched notion people have, that owning one of something means that you wish to own many of those things. Thanks to this phenomenon, I own many model Vikings, several faux oriental statuettes in rosewood coloured resin and dozens of pewter dragons or wizards with imitation crystals somewhere about their person. I live in a small village and my family and social circles are fairly close-knit. Re-gifting is difficult under these circumstances.

Also, since two nominations in two pages makes it practically a tradition... I'd like to nominate my thighs* as well.;)


* I was going to nominate Dotsie and Wicked's thighs instead, but I'm terrified of getting Umbrella'd...

Great list Danny!

Can I add Internet adverts that load automatically whenever you refresh a page or accidentially roll your mouse over them. :x

That's a brilliant post, Danny. And Tony, I agree about the internet ads.

Also my new computor has it's main icons on a port which hovers on the address bar. That can go in too.

Oh, and Danny B, what do you know about my thighs? and Dotsies?
