"Life will find a way..."

Okay, rapture nonsense out of the way! See we're all here! Isn't it wonderful? Can't see why silly religions all seem to strive for a purpose as to the existence of life in every way, shape and silhouette, because all that matters are the facts and the facts are that life on Earth was a simple accident, that's all...just a wonderful...barmy...baffling, fabulous accident! And here you all are!

See, you funny humans are the only beings on Earth to question their own existence; everything else on Earth, all other animals, they just 'are'...they live out their lives, accept it, no fuss and just love it and get on with it!

Yes...Sorry if this post reads a bit 'preachy' or some such, but I find it comforting and exciting to take a leaf out of our Time-Lord books; life is what you make it, so just live it! (That's why it's called 'life', apparently...) Enjoy!

Funday 09 - Science; It Works!

Since this is #9 and it corresponds to my favourite Doctor, I think this Funday may be the last for a while (there may be more in the future, but if even I don't know, it'll make it more interesting! Hopefully...)

Fear not! (You are fearing, aren't you? Oh well...) I shall blag some vaguely amusing and interesting stuff within time and hopefully keep an account of productive stuff!

But let's have fun first!
Face it; cool cats are cool!
I say! Steampunk Shenanigans!
Just off the record...
Apparently it wasn't the only result of Chernobyl! (you'll see why on July 1st!)
Couldn't give a...
He gets it, too...
Round THAT off to the nearest decimal point!
I'd love to say 'read-it', but imagine what that could spawn...!
En garde! *Scribbles furiously!*

Stephen Hawking is your saviour!
For some reason I'm thinking Al Murray...

Sorry, we're open!
"Look, Sir...Droids!"
I recently found out why you need to 'ping' your IP address...It's rubber band power! YEAH!
Ah, all religion is for fruitcakes...(See? you can dismiss in a non-violent way!)
Yes...I'm not a regular gamer, but they can beat me anyday! Wait...
Canes, Recorders, Crushed Velvet, Jelly Babies, Celery, Question Marks, Umbrellas, Gothic-Steampunk, Leather Jackets, Pinstripes, Bow-Ties, Fezzes, Stetsons...You heard the man! All cool!
Only Batman could argue with Batman...
A leader... *shades* with a following! YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
Calling all Cats all over the world! Rock it!
Yet in a second, SHE is about to tap a ladle...Daft girl...There's nothing in it! NEVER tease 'Raptors!
Ah, Starfleet, Kirk's excuse for a quickie...
House rocks...Simple as...
Pity the Sonic doesn't do wood; he could cause a synchronised reverberating vibration with the plank, causing it to propel him back onto the ship...But that's just me!

So there you go and a lesson for people, especially those religious idiots *AHEM* zealots (especially those who shove it in others' faces)...DO NOT TRY TO TRUMP SCIENCE; YOUR ARGUEMENT IS AUTOMATICALLY INVALID! THE REST OF THE WORLD HAS MOVED ON! WHY CAN'T YOU?! Seriously, what does it take?! I'm nearly begging for other worldly beings to visit us, but I'm sure intelligent life out there would have noticed that half of us are completely insane and probably won't bother to say hello! Even better, grab a TARDIS, jump back 65 million years ago and show them a T. Rex (or Spinosaurus) and THEN watch them try and preach the word of God!

Anyway, the point is; simple, good honest facts...Science creates these facts...There is so much we don't know, which is why the sane continuously search for answers...(Good ol' human curiosity; Scientists don't fear the unknown, they embrace and squeeze it to death! Actually, they poke it with a stick to see what it does, but you know what I mean!)

Religion automatically fills in what we don't know, with purely speculative dishonesty! In our quest for understanding, ancient humans came up with theories as to why things fundamentally exist...We had next to no knowledge of Scientific means back then, so we filled it with entities...BUT THEN; Dinosaurs (and other prehistoric beasts)! Planets! The Solar System! More Stars! More Planets! Galaxies! No Second Coming! Wha...The Earth revolves around the Sun?!

Understanding of Science was when people started to realise and work out important facts; how we function, how we breathe, how we think, how we we exist! Unlike Religion, the rest of us are honest in that we admit we don't know everything, which is what is so wonderful about Science; is gives us so many chances to explore what could be...Take the night sky. Next time it is clear, I advise you to look up! Millions of possibilities, billions of stars, trillions of galaxies...Where would you like to start?

To my wonderful followers three, with wisdom a-plenty and savvy from thee... (end poetry) you know that basically I can deal with other people having beliefs (I prefer faith in one's self, but hey ho) and I have plenty of respect for the sensibly religious...but I don't respect them shoving it in others' faces and down their throats. I think, Chess & Tash, you two will certainly know what I mean!

(Of all the religions, Buddhism seems to be the most sensible; they practise meditation and mindfulness to help themselves and others, not a 'higher power', they don't expect anyone else to 'convert' and they're so serene...They're like the Cats of the Religions; it's awesome!)

Christianity (the core Religion the UK is built upon as we know) has been around since the time of Ancient Egyptians, who unknowingly used Science for their own beliefs...(e.g. the Great Pyramids align with Orion's Belt) so I say knickers to this Christian year-keeping; if we've really moved on from Religion these days, we shouldn't be living in the year 2011, it should be more like 6011!


P.S. Normal service will be resumed in next post, so rant over; just wanted the chance to expand some horizons to the thousands of possibilities! Life is short, so do with it what you will, but do it well!

Funday 08 - 'R'

And that's the pirate 'R'...What? 'The Curse of the Black Spot' was a great non-Moffat-written episode and 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' is on the horizon! (I saw the first TV spot! Proof!)

Now I'm wondering if I should stop the cheezburger links when the current series finishes or wait until next week...Hmm...Anyway, ponder whilst I deliver some more!
"Not now...But soon!"
You know how lightsabres 'purr'...
'Ear, 'ear!
Put a smile on that!
Well that's just Prime! I did a Sideways Sideswipe and got Skids on my Mudflap!
World - 0, Obama - 3
But what if you were to have all three...? Listen to some cool fight music whilst shooting and slashing!
For most, the small fragment dissipates during the sequels (which I love)!
Well...There you have it!
Paul, just forgive him...I can't believe you keep forgetting he's a dangerous sociopath! Haha
Now then, I want my own idea of what the inside is actually like, but...
You're welcome.

There we go...Kips and time delayed this one...Enjoy! (And however much so you are already, do be more Optimus...I mean optimistic!)

Here's the Thing...

Time flies, but it's good to know you're in the pilot's seat. (However, not everyone has a pilot's license!) And since September I've started flying a very vastly complex plane into battle. The take-off was great and some other pilots that I've met have been joyous to fly alongside with. But at the start of the new year, I accidentally flew the plane through a hailstorm of machine-gun flak.

I've tried as much as possible to regain control and fix the problems, but I *have* been trying to do this whilst a few thousand feet in the air! Fuel spilling, rudders blasted, air-pressure low and dropping...Now the wings are splitting and the engine has failed and I've been falling to Earth fast.

You know, some are qualified to fly the Harrier; but it's taken me until now that I'm not one of them, so now I'm hitting the ejector seat and saving myself before I crash and burn.

As you may have suspected, the above has been an analogy, but you may not have guessed what for...

I'm quitting my University course.

I've grown enough now to a point where I no longer have the drive for education, especially as it's voluntary (besides, what could I do with the knowledge that course dishes out; become another tutor and pass it onto more students within a cycle of tedium...) I feel the need to get major goals in life organised, so I have at least two major objectives; 1) Get work & 2) Learn to drive! (The Bradford Playhouse, where I volunteer, will have a post soon and my dear Uncle has offered to teach my driving 'when [I'm] ready'...And I feel I'll be ready VERY shortly!)

Inspiration? Well, I suppose this time it's about what we want...My decision comes after much deliberation and deciding what's important which crucially includes what I *want*. And I know I definitely don't want to continue with this course, as I know that it and I aren't compatible with each other.

I do respect the people who can and do tackle University. I also have respect not for those who think they need to do something when they so abviously don't, but respect for those who follow and chase their passions; the ones who hunt down their desires and strive for what they really want, so that they can aim high in their lives and have *careers* that they will truly enjoy.

Funday 07 - Crafted from Dwarf Star Alloy

We're currently into 'Doctor Who' (and yes, episode 2 was incredible with an epic sonic-scene), so let's see now; 'Thor', 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides', 'Cowboys & Aliens', 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon', 'Captain America: The First Avenger' & 'Torchwood: Miracle Day'...Yep! It's going to be one heck of a year!

We had massive fun un the Urban Garden today; the people of Bradford rightly claimed the area for excitement, madness, music and to make a few good damn points! We at the Playhouse provided the madness and set up a medical tent and brought in victims...uh, patients via our ambulances which were cleverly disguised as wheelbarrows. I began as the 'Action Doctor' that Edgar Wright started an idea for on Twitter! I was aiming to spread the word and spread it like butter! Anyway, the patients were treated screaming and they left screaming with plenty of fake blood and bandages and plasters galore (though later the younger ones missed the point of the fake blood...) ! Believe it or not there was an underlying point which was about cuts to the NHS; a metaphorical point beautifully displayed when the tent kept trying to blow away in the wind and all we could do was keep it from collapsing!

There was something odd about today too...And it wasn't the Breakfast Sub (which was DELICIOUS) or the lack of pizza...Not a cloud at all in the sky; not one. Not even any jet-trails...until I pointed it out to somebody who subsequently found one...But that was only one of around four in the whole sky during the whole day! Very windy, though, so I was right not to trust it too much! Only as the sun started to set did any cloud appear, so it seemed...So yes, very odd...

Your weekly cheezburger contains all the ingredients for mirth and merriment! Even a bit of topical stuff in there too, so do keep an eye out for that! Oh yes and plenty of Time Lord goodness with a rare treat; Cybertron!
Hmm...But shall I shred first?
Aw, he's wearing a collar and tie! Wait-a-minute; who wears a collar with no shirt?!
I'll keep him posted...
Brownies...They are THAT cool. Simple.
See...Topical! Or slightly debatable...? Discuss!
And here's some madness-relief!
"They're trousers!"
The driver can't help it if your instructions aren't clear!
But Head-Bangers always seem stressed! Oh, I see...
I see the sixth dimension! It burns!
Give that man a free taco!
Funnily enough, that looks like the same type of crane from 'Terminator 3'...
Oh Beatrice, when will you learn...It's your SISTER who needs some ridicule! Start with a real face-hugger...
Horatio Caine - Enough said.
Speaking of which, 'Johnny English Reborn' will be on it's way soon!
I thought he was "rubbish at weddings"! (He's 'dropped in' on at least four other than his own that we currently know of!)
WHO YOU GONNA CALL...?! Oops, wrong franchise!

So that's your lot for this week! Now then, my younglings, what have we learnt? That's right; not all Karma is as touchingly-funny and lovely as 'My Name is Earl'...Want some really interesting Karma? The Empire blew up Alderaan, killing millions...Both Death Stars blew up, killing thousands, which means the Rebels still had a long way to go to reach the Imperial level, but there-in lies another lesson; because they didn't.

I shall leave you pondering like Yoda at that thought...

(Unless you want an awesome reminder of the stuff that's going to happen this year! See top of post for details.)

Brough to you by 'ACTION DOCTOR'! Spread the Word, Not the Disease! *Thumbs up*
