        That one really is a gem. I would love to know if that is a surveillance camera or a stunt driver movie situation type thing. I'm inclined to go with the stunt driver, because it is just too good to be true.

          Its from an old Jackie Chan movie i think.

          Flying is unnatural if god or evolution wanted us to fly we would have wings, unfortunately soetimes its a necessary evil.

            Absolutely correct.  It's also why I eat only raw vegetables and sushi - God didn't put a stove in my throat and didn't mean for us to eat cooked food.  And without wheels instead of feet, we don't have any business riding in a car, either. 

            Walking, while nibbling a carrot stick, is what was intended.

              I like the raw vegetables and sushi idea Wilderness, i like both although the fish was hard to digest the first time i tried it.
              With limited mobility i would not be able to go very far, if i could afford an horse or ride a bike i would be happy but unfortunately i use one of those nasty motor vehicles to get to work.
              I still like a bit of red meat now and again but i am a great believer in moderation when it comes to food, Is it true that Americans are the biggest red meat eaters in the world? Maybe that might explain so much aggression on their part.

              I will always be thankful for the helicopter that transported me from the site of my accident to the hospital without it i am convinced i would be dead.

                Evil, that's all there is to it.  I can't stand sushi myself, so must limit myself to a diet of carrots and other edible plants that can be eaten raw.

                And absolutely NO bicycles - they again have that evil wheel that if God wanted us to have He would have put in the ends of our legs.  You really need to work on reforming and getting back into God's good graces, but jaunting around in unnatural cars, planes and helicopters isn't going to do it.  Take warning!

                  Do you wear clothes made of plant matter also?

                  Unfortunately reformation would require welfare benefits as the garden is to small to support human life and the greengrocer drives a ford truck.

                  I shall have to await judgement day and see if the severity of the punishment fits the crime, mind you i could always become an atheist and then god wouldn't see me. (would i have to swap my sandals for a pair of crocodile boots?)

                    Yes, but only one plant at a time.

                    Not necessary - reduce the "surplus population" per Scrooge and we won't see that problem.

                    If your sandals are plastic or rubber, then better switch them out before appearing at those pearly gates.  You can't be too careful.

      Flying on an airplane "sucks" only because it's expensive and uncomfortable.

    I can afford to get myself halfway around the world in less than a day.  Yes I have to sit in a chair for the duration but seriously, flying is brilliant.
