Jumping the Shark

In Acts 1, Jesus takes off into the sky and disappears into a cloud , on his way to Heaven.

'After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.

They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. "Men of Galilee," they said, "why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.'

This is a classic jumping the shark moment, when it all goes absurd.

MP's expenses - the final solution.

It is obvious that MP's would not claim so much expenses if they knew they would be burned in Hell by God if they failed God's scrutiny at the Last Judgement.

This is the thesis of somebody invited by the BBC to lecture Britain on morality on Thought for the Day.

You can read the Rev Dr Alan Billings musings on MP's expenses and why MP's no longer feel accountable to God for their use of tax-payer's money.

The extremely religious are always amazing in their unique take on world events.
