Hell... is this article.

So let me get this straight... a bunch of bankers were put to the question of why some countries are richer than others... and the answer they come up with is "Well, richer countries believe in Hell, and poorer countries don't."

In the immortal words of Jon Stewart: "Whaaaaaaaaaaaaa?"

Nevermind even the lack of any actual data in this article. Somebody decided this was news? Of any sort of relevance to society? And how do you define 'corruption' in these hell-fearing countries? *shakes head* Or could it be because poorer countries are already in hell?

Damn article doesn't even have a byline.

This is why AIM Today is a bad thing.

But, but...Jews don't believe in hell, and don't they control all the money? *evil snicker*

I was just imagining John Stewart saying that.

As one American who doesn't believe in hell I say pffffttttt! to that.

Ah, and I just changed my icon too! Yeah, this season is over, though.

When I first started watching, I used to get so pissed at Brian, but now I "get" him and he's totally fascinating. I like complicated characters like that.

The Daily Show is the only news worth watching. John Stewart should be president. Seriously.

I know what you mean. I love Brian. I wouldn't want to be friends with him or anything, but he's fascinating to watch. Like a hurricane or something. *lol*

And yes, he should be president. And Lewis Black should be VP. ;)

Oh, yes. Lewis Black. The anti-Dick. Cheney that is.

Doesn't Dick Cheney remind you of the evil emperor in Star Wars? With a face lift? *shudders*

I keep wondering who two men with such creepy laughs and body language got so many people to vote for them?

The first time I saw GWB with Cheney I got a cold chill and I still get one every time I watch him on TV. The man has the most skeevy, creepy, untrustworthy body language I've ever seen on a human being. Just EW. I bet he molests collies or impales kittens on spikes for fun.

I so hear you. I get shivers whenever either one of them are on tv. But Cheney's the worst. That man's like the embodiment of evil or something.
