4 Religions Scarier Than Chucky

5 Religions Scarier Than Chucky

When it comes to religon, people can be strange indeed. According to Wikipedia, the major religious beliefs around the world are Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. Nevertheless people have felt free to invent their own in a desperate attempt to create something according to their own ways of thinking, acting and believing.  Some of these are scarier than Chucky. So here they are: 4 religions scarier than Chucky the doll.

The Church of Euthanasia

5 Religions Scarier Than Chucky1

Their own words are beyond anything I could write down as an accurate description. Here they are: “The Human population is increasing by one million every four days. This is a net increase of 95 million per year, the current population of Mexico. Even major wars or epidemics hardly dent this rate of growth, and modern wars also have tremendous environmental consequences. It is for these practical reasons, as well as moral ones, that we support only voluntary forms of population reduction.

The Church has only one commandment, and it is “Thou Shalt Not Procreate.” In addition, we have four “pillars” or principles, which are Suicide, Abortion, Cannibalism and Sodomy.

Note that cannibalism is only required for those who insist on eating flesh, and is strictly limited to consumption of the already dead. Also note that sodomy is defined as any sexual act not intended for procreation.” Amen.

P.S. Their pretentious language, something between Shakespeare and modern American English is just breathtaking!

Jediism

5 Religions Scarier Than Chucky 2

“This one is pretty clear,” you’d be tempted to say at a first glance. “They’re probably just a bunch of Star Wars fans playing around.” Not quite…

Ok, so they really believe in The Force, as an energy that holds the Universe together and flows through every material thing. This is far from being an original idea. Come on now, every Eastern religion has this belief as guidance. They’re more of a blend between Taoism and Buddhism that also incorporates elements of medieval chivalry. While there’s no formal central doctrine, all this is loosely referred to as the “Jedi Code”. However this code encourages the following principles: “There is no emotion, there is peace. There is no ignorance, there is knowledge. There is no passion, there is serenity. There is no chaos, there is harmony. There is no death, there is the Force” Ok, now. They are less creepy than Chucky, but you can’t deny the fact that they belong to the same world: children’s world.

The Church of Ed Wood

5 Religions Scarier Than Chucky3

Following the film industry, it seems it succeeded in creating a bunch of spiritual stuff for every living soul out there. So here’s Woodism, or a religion dedicated to the worst film directors of all time. So this guy is regarded as one of the saviour, though not THE saviour. They are basically upholding the morals and ideals of Edward D. Wood and preaching Ed’s message of total understanding and acceptance, regardless of what modern society may say.

Wood was also a transvestite in 1950s America. So this is where their acceptance is coming from. Creepy…

Raëlism

5 Religions Scarier Than Chucky4

Raëlism is a UFO religion. It was founded by Claud Vorilhon, now known as Raëland it is, as far as the number of followers is concerned, the largest such religion in the world after Scientology. So in case you didn’t know that, the Elohim is a group of extraterrestrials who posed as angels and deities in their relationships with early humans and created life on our planet.  Raël is the last human contacted by the Elohim to prepare us for their imminent return.

According to Raël, he was dictated a message explaining our origins and future in December 1973, during personal meetings with a 25,000-year-old extraterrestrial named Yahweh, who came in a UFO. The message dictated to Raël during this encounter states that the Elohim contacted about forty people to act as their prophets on Earth, such as those who founded the world’s major religions like Moses, Buddha, Jesus or Muhammad. When all wars are over, the Elohim will visit Earth once again.

5 Reasons Why We Don’t Like Keira Knightley

5 Reasons why we don’t Like Keira Knightley

This is more like a response to the previous 5 Reasons Why We Love Zooey Deschanel movie post, which was just too adorable. Well it’s time for some amusing negativity now, revolving around one of Hollywood’s most debated actresses. Here are 5 reasons why we don’t like Keira Knightley and could never like her unless she decides upon a totally new approach. What kind of approach? Beats me.

1.   She is not convincing

5 Reasons why we don’t Like Keira Knightley1

Well it goes without saying that her acting skills need a little more practice. However she seems to get all the great parts and therefore earn millions and she even gets nominated for Oscars for being completely wooden! How come? And you can see she’s trying, but doing it all wrong, all the time. There are hundreds of young talented actresses out there. What are they afraid of when picking Keira Knightley for the 80th time? Don’t they know she will be the same? She always is, despite the character.

2.   She seems infatuated

5 Reasons why we don’t Like Keira Knightley2

I’m sorry t admit this, but she just has the most annoying accent. She should do something about it, and be able to hide it once in a while. This would definitely bring a pale of fresh air to her next role. I mean for Pirates of the Caribbean it worked perfectly, but come on now; she clings to it even when she has to play a down-and-out street girl like the one in Bend it Like Beckham. It’s like a constant Look at me, I’m so delicate message delivered all the time, 24/7.

3.   She has a chin problem

5 Reasons why we don’t Like Keira Knightley3

This is actually a highly discussed subject. This thing she does with the lower part of her face: she loves to jut out her chin whenever she has to express frustration or strength, or hard decisions in the face of a whatever overwhelming experience her character is going through. Well, all these “things” are called emotions, and an actor is supposed to actually recreate them inside of him. The jaw will eventually come out on its own, supposing it will feel compelled to do it

4.   She is pouting all the time

5 Reasons why we don’t Like Keira Knightley4

This pout thing is a secret weapon belonging to a lot of young girls looking for approval. They do seem more interesting, more involved and giving while doing this silly thing with their lips. The pouting however is more used than the chin thing. Well she’d use it on just any occasion she has something to express. The chin is for the hard scenes, while the pout is for the lighter ones.

5.   She is not a real actress

5 Reasons why we don’t Like Keira Knightley5

Well is high time she took up some acting courses, don’t you agree? Despite her parents being actors, Keira just seems to have skipped all acting courses she ever came across. She needs to learn how to be real, and convincing and how to really act out a situation. Everybody knows she’s not a professional actress, but with all her success she ought to improve her skills, at least for the sake of the public.

Nevertheless hopefully success didn’t go to her head completely. We’re certain that she is a perfectly decent young lady, and she is aware of all the comments people are making about her. Her being down to Earth was proved in this statement: “I completely agreed on every level,” said Knightley. “I didn’t go to drama school, so I didn’t get the training. It was difficult to get over that: ‘What am I doing? I’m pretending that I can do this and everybody’s telling me I can’t.’”  Please take up some acting lessons, Keira!

6 Places in Your House just Filled with Bacteria

6 Places in Your House just Filled with Bacteria You think at least your house is clean? It may look that way if you are among the diligent ones, but there’s no escaping the hungry bacteria! Here are some of the dirtiest yet obviously disgusting things in our homes! There’s no such thing as absolute cleanliness, but wait and see just how dirty things really are! Apart from the obvious doorknobs, or light switchers that we seldom disinfect, here are 6 places in your house just filled with bacteria.

# 1. Your kitchen and everything in it

6 Places in Your House just Filled with Bacteria1

Contrary to popular opinion, the kitchen may actually be the dirtiest place in the house.

The kitchen sink – typically has about 500,000 bacteria per square inch in the drain alone, so you can only imagine the total bacteria that add up if you consider faucets and all. A kitchen sink is actually dirtier than your toilet post-flush. As in the part where the water comes out, it is filled with black grunge. You wash your hands, your teeth and your food with water coming from dirty faucets. Yuck!

Let’s not forget about dishtowels and sponges that are especially problematic, because they hold moisture and we tend to use them for multiple tasks. Apparently an easy remedy for this is to microwave the sponge for 60 seconds. A kitchen sponge is 200,000 times dirtier than a toilet seat, and a dishcloth is 20,000 times dirtier.

The fridge handle is a special home for various bacteria, if you think of the multitude of things one can touch before using the fridge handle, things such as raw meet, dairy, the toilet…

The cutting board is an endless source of bacteria. Raw meat apparently carries a very high level of fecal bacteria. Maybe it’s better to cut the vegetables on the floor?

There’s a land of all prospects above the kitchen cabinets, as someone seldom cleans them up there. It’s so hard to do that all the time!

# 2. Let’s not ignore the obvious bathroom

6 Places in Your House just Filled with Bacteria2

Apparently public restrooms have about 2 million bacteria per square inch, while the average toilet seat has only 50 per square inch.

The bathtub is also a horribly dirty place, as any standing water that lingers after a shower or bath breeds mold, fungi, and staph bacteria.

The toothbrush is as dirty as poop, because whenever you flush your toilet the germs can travel up to 6 feet and linger for up to 2 hours. A lot of them end up on toothbrushes. Moreover the toothbrush holder offers strong competition- reportedly, 27% of toothbrush holders involved in a recent test had coliform bacteria and 14% had Staph. inside their toothbrush holder.

# 3. The fluffy bedroom

6 Places in Your House just Filled with Bacteria3

The bed mattress is the perfect home for all sorts of micro-organisms, but the shocking thing about this is the fact that after 10 years an average mattress will nearly double its weight because of the number of dust mites and dust mite poop that it has collected. Yuck!

Well pillows hold standards high as well, with dead skins cells, dust mites, fungal spores, pollens and other body secretions.

# 4. Gadgets and remote controls

6 Places in Your House just Filled with Bacteria4

Our mobile devices can have 10 times more bacteria than toilet seats. And they are in touch with our face all the time. I wonder where all the acne outbreaks might be coming from…

Well, remote controls have been the victim of all sorts of traces of food from dirty fingers, or sheer spilling accidents so there’s nothing clean about those, either. Keyboards belong to the same category as well.

# 5. Your pet’s eating bowl

6 Places in Your House just Filled with Bacteria5

The inside rim alone contains 2,110 bacteria per square inch. You should wash you pet’s food bowl every day, because it’s a source of disease for your companion.

# 6. Ice cubes

6 Places in Your House just Filled with Bacteria6

Ice machines are filled with bacteria. According to a recent study made on fast foods, they found that ice cubes were dirtier than the water inside a toilet. So take care with that, too.

3 Theories in Favour of Body Hair

3 Theories in Favour of Body HairBody hair – the ultimate challenge, especially during summer time.  Well not both genders have such a hard time dealing with it, as women probably are much more haunted by the ordeal, but nevertheless this question is on everybody’s lips: what’s it for? Here are 3 theories in favour of body hair.

There are several explanations regarding this subject beginning with evolutionary inheritance and finishing with pheromones, responsible for sexual attraction. The human body contains about 5,000,000 hair follicles, each one producing a hair shaft. The function of human hair supposedly depends on the part of the body from which it grows. It is believed that the human hair performs several functions, such as protecting the skin from environmental influences. It is believed to respond to external input and translate this information into neurological impulses that are brain interprets as sensory stimuli.

# The good old theory of evolution

3 Theories in Favour of Body Hair1

Hair appears to keep out body temperature within normal ranges. Nearly every hair follicle on our body has a little smooth muscle, known as a piloerector muscle, connected to it. All these muscles have a nerve supply, so when the nerves are activated, the muscles contract and the hair follicles rise. We have roughly as many hair follicles as chimpanzees do. But as humans evolved, the overall amount of human body hair has diminished. Well not the actual number of hairsprings has diminished, but human body hair has lost its pregnant color, thickness, and the over all “furry” aspect. We reportedly no longer needed it for heat and protection.

However the theory of evolution fails to explain why we still have underarm hair, or pubic or some considerable amount on our legs… We’re not so cold anymore.

# The theory of sexual attraction

3 Theories in Favour of Body Hair2

It is believed that the tufts of hair around the genitals, as well as under the arms, release pheromones, which may act as erotic signals. Pheromones get trapped in the pubic hair once released by the apocrine glands on the surface of the skin. This odor-less production then combines with bacteria decomposed by the secretions of the sebaceous glands. The resulting scent is unique for each and every one of us due to a genetic complex called the Major Histocompatability Complex (MHC). Studies suggest that women are attracted to men with very different MHCs than their own, supposedly because a genetically diverse offspring is more able to fight off disease.

# Body hair keeps the skin healthy

3 Theories in Favour of Body Hair3

This is the latest theory and probably the most accurate one. Human body is home to roughly ten times as many bacterial cells as human cells. There are also fungal cells, but not so much is known about their functions. Since these bacteria think of you as their home sweet home, they do everything they can in order to keep their home as cozy as it can possibly be, at least from a bacteria’s perspective: by producing substances that help you fight infections or others that help you digest your food properly. In other words hair follicles are homes for such friendly bacteria, along with sebaceous glands.

So in order to be healthy, you need to have a good microbiome (this community of microorganisms living on or inside our bodies). This includes hair follicles as well. Instead of being useless, then, hair is critically important to maintaining skin health, as its follicles provide a necessary and pleasant environment for certain members of the skin microbiome. So we would have been much more vulnerable had it not been for our annoying body hair.

So give it a kiss and be grateful for it, will you? Body hair is generally ok; it just wants to protect you. Because of the fact that it is no longer compatible with modern beauty standards, most people, especially women, have it removed. But bare to mind that hygiene conditions while doing this are highly important as we wouldn’t want the bacteria that’s supposed to stay on your skin get the chance to visit the inside.

The Best and Worst Grammar Police Examples

I’m really quite nervous about typing this. I feel apprehensive because the Grammar Police are everywhere! When you write about bad grammar, they crawl out of the woodwork to study every word and punctuation mark. Still, if you find any mistakes here, I’ll just pretend that they were made with a big dollop of irony. Without any further wait, let’s dive into our list of the best and worst Grammar Police examples.

The People and Their Spelling Fail

Spelling Fails and the Grammar Police

Can I propose a simple yet useful suggestion to the English speaking world? We should just spell they’re, there and their the same freaking way. I realize that learning how to spell each of these three short words correctly doesn’t seem like a huge task. But, it really would make this world a better place to live in.

The Double Grammar Fail

Best and Worst Grammar Police Examples

The only thing worse than a Grammar Nazi correcting you is the said Grammar Nazi making incorrect corrections. Thankfully, the person correcting the corrector didn’t make any mistakes. We could have been caught up in a never-ending series of correction notes. Each note would become more pedantic than the previous one.

The Pumps Fail

The Best and Worst Grammar Police Examples

The most interesting thing about this sign is that pre-pay pumps exist somewhere in the world. Why didn’t anyone tell me about this before now? I have no idea what liquids or solids are pumped out of said pumps. If the product is payed for before I arrive, you won’t find me complaining.

The Passed Away Grammar

Best and Worst Grammar Police Examples

A lot of people seem to have trouble telling the difference between past and passed. This infraction appears to be a huge area of concern for Grammar Police all over the planet. Surely, this should be the subject of international conferences and documentaries. However, I believe it is safe to say that a note telling you that a colleague passed away isn’t really an appropriate place to discuss the subject.

The Grammar Police Fail

Best and Worst Grammar Police Examples

Even the Grammar and Spelling Police make mistakes. In this case, we can see how two different agents of these fine organisations made mistakes of their own. Correcting other people’s mistakes all day long is a tough and tiring job. But, someone has to do it!

The Backwards Swastika

Best and Worst Grammar Police Examples

The Grammar Police and Grammar Nazis are pretty much the same. If you fall foul of either party, you will soon realize all of your misplaced commas and erroneous apostrophes. What about the Graffiti Police, though? In this case, a member of the organization was a bit too quick to write a reply when he found a backwards swastika.

The Terrible Grammar Fail

Worst Grammar Police Examples

To be honest, I failed the exams to join the Grammar Police. They offered me a position in the Superfluous Comma Squad. But, I felt like the role wouldn’t allow me to show off my full range of skills. Having said all of that, even I would need to jump in and make a citizen’s arrest on this awful speller. He may be suffering a serious case of unrequited love (she isn’t remotely interested in you, buddy), but that doesn’t excuse horrible pile of errors.

The Punctuate Fail

Punctuation Fails and the Grammar Police

Have you spotted any of my deliberate mistakes yet? I bet you haven’t. Anyway, this is a pretty good example of the power of commas. They save lives and prevent forest fires!
