It won’t work » « Thursday is going to be a busy day Brilliant Brigstocke While Revere is showing a rerun of that glorious anti-religion riff (it’s worth listening to again!), here’s another clip of Marcus Brigstocke being right in every particular once more.

I love the line about “if they’re feeding you McDonalds, it’s a good thing to bit them in the hand”
Right on Marcus.
Marcus Brigstocke is a genius. I’m pleased to see he’s gathering admiration on the US side of the pond, too.
He needs to work on his framing, though.
WE can talk about how crappy our government is but Eurotrash should STFU.
Totally. Americans, likewise, shouldn’t talk about how things are going in Sudan. If you aren’t Sudanese, STFU, right?
Or, maybe not, and you’re a gitwizard.
Compromise; we’ll stop pointing out your inadequacies when you stop showing them off. Fair enough?
There’s only one gitwizard.
Who wants to guess that K thinks it’s absolutely fine for hm to criticize the French or English or Mexican governments or whomever else he wants? Jingoistic idiot.
“You look like a tosser and don’t say “gangsta” you live next to Nottingham.”
Brigstocke, sticking it to the chavs.
Well, as long as “America” tries to police and run the world, how about the world votes for “American” president, instead of just Unitedstatesians?
British people are already fully aware of our own inadequacies, thank you very much. Why else do you think we say sorry all the time, when it’s not even our fault?
I am British.
Of course, I’m also Scottish (and European, obviously), so I get to shamelessly switch allegiances to whatever fits best at the time.
K: diddums. (Its funny when people whose country is younger than my house get a gob on.)
Martin M: you’re British when you win something, Scottish when you don’t.

Sorry to go off on a tangent, PZ, but here’s something weird:
Participants in a group calling itself “Religion, Science and the Environment”, a non-governmental organisation based in Greece, has converged on a glacier in Greenland to express solidarity amongst the worlds religions.
The purpose of the vigil at on the Ilulissat Icefjord? To proclaim a unified religious acknowledgement of the threat of global warming and other environmental problems. How do they propose to tackle the problem? To “pray” to God (or whatever) for the health of the planet. Only HE (or whatever) can help.
No kidding. Any thoughts?
Kind of sad. On September 11th, 2001, the United States had the condolences, well wishes, and support of most of the world. Today? Not so much…
If I could find British or European culture here more easily, I’d totally buy it instead of half the movies that came out this summer.
“Li’l bendy-me’al BAHHstahd!”
LOL! That’s awesome. I laughed out loud at that one.
