Perverse wishes.

    I wish the government instead of wasting time over the foxhunting issue, would employ sharpshooters, to hide on roofs in the cities, to shoot people who ride bycycles on the pavement and the ones that  ignore red stop signs at pedestrain crossings.


    What's your twisted wish.

    Hi Cris,


    A pet peeve of mine is the bigotry which a small subset of Christians displays, relying on 'what it says in the Bible'. Given that few to none of these people can read Aramaic or Greek, and have never set eyes on the original texts, it's apparent that they're basing their prejudices on their understanding of a book which is an interpretation of a text which is a translation of an archaic document.




    My twisted wish would be that a hitherto undiscovered scroll comes to light, in or around the Dead Sea area, which when translated reads "all characters in this work are fictitious and any resemblance to any person living or dead is purely co-incidental"
