Stating the Obvious

Apparently I've started doing just that! All my posts state the obvious. So to continue the trend, Onward Ho! as Bertie'd say:

I work on the 12th floor of a tall building surrounded by roads. What's so special about that you blink at me. Well, I was looking out the window and I could see all these orderly cars, each sticking to their lane, weaving through the traffic, stopping at the stop signs. And then this ONE car, he comes out of nowhere (and I use the gender pronoun knowingly!), drives most bizarrely, startles a bus out of its wits, and narrowly avoids slamming into a pedestrian (an innocent bystander, who must have thought his number was up). I watched all of this from the anonymity of my 12th floor window and I found it hilarious. Yes, I did! I was having a smashing time. And then I finally got it. The question on everyone's mind is "If there is a God, where the heck is he? There's terrorists lurking behind every pillar, and burglars stalking innocent quarry and violence waiting to be confronted around every corner, right? The world is awful, unfair, unjust, cruel, and where the f*@# is God?". At least this OUGHT to be the question on everyone's mind. Well, today I rumbled it. He's lounging at his 12th heaven window and laughing his ass off! It must be FUN! Betcha he's thinking of Menahim Begin's wise words, "Civilisation is intermittent"!

On the same note (though it might appear unrelated), why dya think most Gods either don't have a mum, don't like their mums, or at least are downright rude and insensitive to their mums? Its cos they don't want those broads poking around their lives. Imagine if God's mum was on the best of terms with him. What's the bet she'd have had him away from the window, and cleaning his act up, by now? Telling ya, those Gods are canny chappies.

"I'm sure God has a plan for all of us"

"God's a kid with an ant-farm. There is no plan"

--From the movie Constantine (Rachel Weisz, Keanu Reeves). Very entertaining.

FIRST!

Never saw it. Will lay my hands on it, though, now that it comes so highly recommended!
God's a kid with an ant-farm! My thought EXACTLY! Why did I have to be born so late in the history of man-kind??? I'd have made a killer 17th century thinker!

Hehe! They might've burned you at the stake, so all's well perhaps!

And, Constantine was probably not meant to be entertaining - more like scary - but I was entertained...

Cloudy said...

Forgot to say - Ha to Obi!

@Cloudy: Aaah one of those happy people who find scary stuff entertaining. See I can't claim that honor :(. I get so scared I almost have an epileptic fit!! (Confession: Urban Legend scared me :D)

And yeah, you have a point there, about being burnt at the stake I mean! Maybe early 19th century then. Hehe.

Second!

@Revealed/Cloudy: Lol..!! Revealed seems to have escaped her fate of being burnt by a few centuries :D

I saw Constantine - can't say it's one of my favorites but I like the leading lady and the Hero, so it was ok..

And I don't like scary movies that have horribly disfigured living dead or that have limbs lying around everywhere or have oversized ants/lizard/snakes etc - and I hate it when people bleed or puke in movies. That leaves me with very few choices... :D

Revealed said...

@SS: I soooo agree with you, on all counts!!!
(cept for the escaped from burning thing, who knows what'll happen in this lifetime;)

Cloudy said...

Misunderstood! I HATE scary movies with blood and gore and limbs... but Constantine entertained me for it's irreverent take on angels, and God and all that's holy (and unholy)...

@Cloudy: Ooooh! Now that Definitely made me want to see it!
