BBC - Comedy - QI - Homepage

BBC - Comedy - QI - Homepage:

"Quite Interesting - or 'QI' to its friends - could loosely be described as a comedy panel quiz. However, none of the stellar line-up of comedians is expected to be able to answer any questions, and if anyone ends up with a positive score, they can be very happy with their performance."

Dave Gorman's Genius is pretty good on Radio4 too.

I love this show, here is the QI website...God bless the BBC.

Pope revokes concept of limbo

BBC article and report.

I'm surprised at all the fuss over this...it was just an outdated concept that he's stated is invalid. If there is an afterlife of course there wouldn't be a difference between good catholics and good atheists etc etc. It reminds me of this old joke :

This atheist dies and wakes up at the gates of heaven, apart from feeling a bit embarressed about being wrong he is surprised to find he's immediately ushered in by St Peter. "We know you were one of the good'ns so don't worry, in you come".

Now heaven is ace and he gets the grand tour, everything you'd want, loads to do, everyone's smiling & happy but St Peter points out this big huge wall and says "The only rule we really have here is when you are by this wall we like you to keep the noise down...The Catholics are on the other side and they like to think they are the only ones up here".


There are enough sticks to beat the Catholic church with without having to make stuff up and wave dead babies in our faces. Still anything to let the Grauniad readers blither around and prove what good liberals they are.
