A couple of Panoramic shots I took today (one day of sunshine out four, I swear the weather knows when I have a day off) Clicky images.
Following on to the previous post. Eddie as a Mountie, back in the 90′s The Medway boys of Atari ST fame released some disks with Iron Maiden art work, there were only two as far as I am aware.
I cam across this rare Iron Maiden album cover, a Canadian version of ‘Brave New World’ from 2003. Apparently the RCMP did not appreciate this, this version was withdrawn.
It’s shame really, the artwork on this sleeve is outstanding.
There is a church in town, I will presume it’s nation wide not just here. I pass it on my way to work, in the window they have a banner “8 BIG questions” not being a religious person this intrigued me, I had to have a look… BIG questions, this must be some serious shit!
anyway I’ve got a spare five minutes, lets see if i can help them.
1) OMG! Does God exist and why does it matter?
Oh dear, please don’t use text speak, anyway haven’t you just broken one of the commandments, something about lords name in vain. You cant prove god exists or not, does it matter… Probably not
2) Jesus, Buddha, Muhammad, Brahma – do I need to choose?
why not throw in Zeus, Buddha, Vishnu… you have roughly 2500 deities in the world, if we have a jealous god choose wisely. as Homer Simpson says - “What if we picked the wrong religion? Every week we’re just making God madder and madder.”
3) Can sex be wrong when it feels so right?
What a stupid question, simply just don’t do anything you are not comfortable with, or force anyone to do anything they don’t want to do.
4) Hypocrisy: how to survive the church?
Simple. Don’t go! if you need the though of a reward (heaven) or the threat of punishment (hell) you have a problem.
5) Can I recession-proof my life?
Another ridiculous stupid question. Save, don’t donate to any church they don’t need your money. – Really they don’t!
6) Life: what’s the point?
None, Nada, Zip. we all share a common purpose in life, we are born to die.
7) If God is so good why is the world so *#:$!*?
Oh boy! perhaps he just doesn’t give a shit .. I will quote Epicurus here, as I cant put it any better.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?
Epicurus, philosopher (c. 341-270 BCE)
8) When I die, will I exist?
No you won’t, because you will be dead! (well i suppose you may exist as a memory)
see Q4 rewards and punishment…
If these are your BIG 8 questions, then i am not impressed.
how about, 1) How to end world Hunger, 2) End Homelessness, 3) End the abuse of children, 4) End Needless War. 5) End Disease 6) Education For Everyone 7) Equal Rights For Everyone 8) End Poverty.
Guess i better put this:

Some Kansas! awesome edit of that unused WW2 template. (The original red template was never used, it would only be used if there was a successful Nazi invasion during WW2)
