I have troubles watching Neil, especially when he's interviewing other people - he doesn't let them speak and he thinks his jokes are funny. Some are.
Haha yeah.. he does seem to have trouble letting other people talk. I just thought it was a funny joke.

.....Yeah. You sure know what you are talking about, ya eeejit.
The 'Ocean Ranger' was filled with British contractors when it toppled over and 'went down' in 1982 taking All Hands along with it. The report that followed blamed the 'accident' on a simple matter of NOT turning the ballast and de-ballast valves in the correct fashion. Seems like the British bosses on board didn't read the 'manual' properly.
...and dere's the other one....da 'Production Platform' in the North Seas owned by Norway and operated and managed by British contractors. It exploded and caused the largest disaster of all.
While BP will say that BP is good (BobLoblah has worked for BP), BP is not No. 1.......Exxon is and has been for years. In addition Exxon is the largest corporation in the WholeWideworld. It hires Americans, Brits, and peoples from far beyond and 'trains' dem to do their jobs.
Ps:.....You don't know what you are talking about and continue to be a foul-mouthed schidt-for-brains. Get back under yer rock and fuck off.

No, I actually pay little attention to your posts, I don't have the time or the desire to try and decipher what your childish accented words mean. Once you again, its very obvious that you crave attention, that you somehow think what you're doing is "cool" and that people think "oh its just Bob being funny again." Well, it's neither funny nor intelligent in any way. Oh, you are drawing attention to yourself, but its people seeing what a desperate child you are begging for attention. You are pitiful. I'll just pass over all you posts from now on, like I do with the T town clown, or whatever his posting name is. Your posts contain NOTHING relevant or intelligent, the last word I'll ever post to you is ..........PITIFUL!!

Thatís one whale of a tale.
Iím sorry Doctor, I simply can not believe in tall tales of whales. Like I said, I just donít have the faith that you do to believe in such grand imaginations on the scale of a childrenís fantasy.
Theyíre mammals no doubt but many land creatures arenít mammals. So both land and sea contain mammals and non mammals. What it comes down to Doctor you have a greater faith.
On a more personal note Doctor, were you parents believers of Christ. Please take a minute and tell me about your Mom and Dad.
"Grand imaginations" are one thing, observable evidence is quite something else. One on side we have piles of evidence, you can touch it, see it, study it, examine it from every angle, that would be the information of the evolution of Whales. On the other side we have....well, not much. We have the words that are contained in a holy book, a book who's authors we are not sure of. A book that is obviously completely ignorant on matter of science, and i this case evolutionary science. Yet you make the most unusual choice of ignoring factual information and settling with a book of unsupported ideas, Without meaning to be rude, I do believe this is called WILLFULLY IGNORANT. It takes a "Grand Imagination" to accept that mankind appeared after a mythical being scooped up some dirt and blew on it. Then yanked out one of his ribs and a fully formed women magically appeared.

In time of need I have seen atheist say "Oh, God, please don't let this happen."
It's their ignorant version of prayer.
I have said similar myself,ďOh god, Oh god, Ohhhh goddddd

That does not mean I was praying, it just means I was deifying the man giving me the pleasure I needed.

Had I not been brought up with the word god, perhaps Allah or salt biscuit I would have used another word.

Bacteria reproduce every 20 minutes. There are billions times billions times billions times billions of the little guys around. Do you think that's what keeps God busy? He's always like "oh, no! I need another one over there! And over there! And there! And ther! Ther! The..! T..!" pretty soon, no more time on His hands. Only bacteria.

Finally, on Sunday, He climbs into bed, aching arms and knees, and says "Gosh darnit. I should have listened to Thor when He said evolution was the way to go..."
I read an article a couple of years ago that said one of the reasons we have mineral deficiencies now, and sometimes need mineral supplements, is that in pre industrial days, is that we don't eat enough dirt.

Back then, people ate vegetable pulled from the ground, maybe brushed them off or have them a quick rinse, and ate them.

In adddition people ate plenty of fruits pulled from da trees dat were 'tainted' with birdSchidt of sorts. It helped the metabolism work better in humans and not to become so dainty and fragile like today....especially with females who got physical jobs and cannot keepHup like christineM and sidingDumbView and dat foul-mouthed transvestite 'dinKing'.
