Things I Don't Understand

There are a few things going on in the world that I just don't get.

1) WHY are people lopping off the tails of stingrays simply because Steve Irwin (aka Crocodile Hunter) was in the wrong place at the wrong time and got stabbed by one in the heart? Wasn't the stingray's fault and he was bound to be taken out by something in nature one day.

2) WHY do people put stork signs announcing all the details of their newborn child in their front yards? A friend of mine owns a stork sign business and asked me when Isabella was born if I wanted a sign in my yard. Sweet offer, but no thank you. And with the latest news story involving the kidnapping of a 10-day old and the slashing of her mother's throat, even more of a NO THANK YOU!

3) WHY are the Islamic people resorting to violence in protest to the Pope's historical quote? Is it truly necessary to burn Christian churches, torch a Pope look-alike and burn pics of Christ on national television? Is that not a type of terrorism? What if people were in those churches and someone died?

Today's News:

CAIRO, Egypt - Al-Qaida in Iraq warned Pope Benedict XVI on Monday that its war against Christianity and the West will go on until Islam takes over the world, and Iran’s supreme leader called for more protests over the pontiff’s remarks on Islam.

Is there not a better way to protest and make your point that Mohammed was not "evil"?

4) WHY is Paris Hilton in the news? Ever? Does anyone really care about a rich socialite with nothing better to do than say "That's hot", get drunk and sleep with every man available (and not available)? For a poorer person, would'nt that just be a ho?

Yes, it would...to answer your Paris question. I think it's so pathetic as to how many people CARE about what this bimbo does or says.

Amens all around sister!

P.S. I found you on Eve's blog!

Oh Jenn, you have just depressed me terribly. I go through phases where I just don't watch/listen to the news because I JUST CAN'T TAKE ONE MORE NEGATIVE ENERGY ZINGED MY WAY.
Who knows why all of this stuff goes on in the world. Maybe that's why people sometimes turn to a god.

The stupidity just gets to me.

It is stupid to "punish" stingrays because one killed a human. Do they think they are sending a message to all the stingrays of the world?

It is stupid to ever bring attention to having a newborn with all the creeps out there. Baby On Board signs are just another invite, IMHO.

It is STUPID to burn stuff and destroy property in protest of anything.

What else? Oh, yeah. Paris Hilton is just stupid.

Sorry to depress! Guess I'm fiesty in these last few walrus days.
