    Rant (about another forum)

    Somebody on another forum accused me of reading the wrong newspaper, said forum has a Community area similar to this, but with a somewhat lower intellectual level of content, I thought my response was worthy of further dissemination and maybe comment.

    The only paper I read is the local daily, that does occasionally carry something relevant to me, I stopped taking national dailies years ago, same as I've stopped watching the goggle box, I don't wish to be further poisoned by the meejya.

    [rant]
    This place (referring to that other forum) is getting near as bad "joe bloggs or fanny adams has died/got married/had kids/abortion", whoever or whatever it was, I don't need to know; those that are interested in pseudo celebs can read or hear it plastered all over the place, do we really need it overflowing into these pages? Keep it for farcebook and twatter. [/rant]
    It's been ignored so far
    Cheers MIKE.

    I read the Mail, mainly because my wife takes it. Apart from that it is just trade papers. I try and watch the news regularly but shy away from the BBC because of the political bias. I have no interest in celebrity gossip which I find boring.

    I agree with Teddy. No interest what so ever in celebrity gossip. I only watch the news for one reason: the weather. If by some odd chance school is closed, we get an email so no need to watch for that. Not that we ever close. It's extremely rare that we do.

    Oh yes, the BEEB had tons of problems whilst "Entwhistle" was at the helm - Shame on him...
    And it still does...
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Amen to that ... seems Justin is in the news every day ... Justin sneezed ... Justin held hands ... Justin yelled at paparazzi ... Justin, Justin, Justin ... like who the honk cares anyway? I surely don't. Guess it's what sells tabloids though ... at least somebody is making tons of money from it.

    Indeed, the newspaper is quite boring ... we don't subscribe to anything except the Saturday version of the Wall Street Journal, which I find very informative. The rest of my "news" I get from the internet, usually checking out NASA, Science and Technology stuff and ignoring the rest completely.

    As far as I'm concerned, I have my own little corner of the world. Band, band, music, music, more band, family, family, friends... Really what matters to me!
