Koran 37:6 and 67:5. So it must be true.

    I identify as an “eavesdropping devil”. The piercing flares haven’t manage to drive me away. Ña-ña-ña ña-ná na!

    What terrible aim Allah has. He should practice with Zeus. Get some thunderbolt-throwing and swan-mimicry lessons. Maybe then he’ll qualify to represent Islam in the Ol’-Limp-Dicks.

  2. M27Holts says:

    So they are not high velocity objects hitting the atmosphere and burning up with the physics of friction explaining it a lot better than the koran does. Anyway, to more important matters, to celebrate with some of my Celtic ancestors, I have bought a bottle of Redbreast Irish Whiskey (12 years) to toast Paddys day thus friday…

  3. jb says:

    I never see shooting stars in the brilliantly lit high density urban area where I live. I guess that means devils don’t hang out around here!

  4. postdoggerel says:

    When they flush the toilet on the international space station that stuff enters the atmosphere and ends as a fiery streak in the sky. Your poop will never be shooting stars.

  5. M27Holts says:

    Poop, fiery streak? Aye in your grundies after eating Chicken Tikka Tindaloo…

  6. Tom Appleton says:

    Grundies? M27Holts, are you an Aussie, or just picked up some Aussie slang?

  7. Mr Paul Seed says:

    I would have thought “Grundies” referred to the Grundy family, from the very popular BBC radio soap “The Archers”. Nothing to do with Aussie underwear.

  8. Son of Glenner says:

    M27Holts: Redbreast is one of the most highly regarded Irish whiskeys. Please treat it with respect, ie don’t just knock it back, but let it linger in your mouth. I can also recommend Bushmills’ Black Bush, with the same caution. Do not eat strongly flavoured food like chicken tikka masala at the same time – it will overpower the subtle notes of the golden spirit. (I understand that chicken tikka masala was invented in Glasgow, by the way, but I don’t know whether it was invented by Celtic or Rangers supporting Indian restaurateurs.)

  9. M27Holts says:

    Grundies, grunties, trollies…all used locally since I was a kid…nth Manchester, UK

  10. M27Holts says:

    Those are masculine clothes terms for undercrackers…Feminine arse-curtains mostly Knickers, nicnix , Drawers or Panties…

  11. M27Holts says:

    SOG. I have a Litre of Jamesons as well. And a stack of chilled Guinness draft tins…my eldest son is having a paddies day party tomorrow…he supplies the food I the booze….

  12. M27Holts says:

    Anyway, Evesdropping Devils, suprised that the muslim scholars (sic) haven’t tried to claim that the Koran predicted the West’s use of Reaper drones….

  13. Son of Glenner says:

    M27Holts: The manuacturers of Guinness now also make an alcohol-free version, called Guinness Zero, available in cans. Might be a good idea to have some of that on hand if your party-goers overdo it on the full-strength stuff.

  14. Chris Phoenix says:

    People sometimes hear a low-pitched hissing or crackling noise from shooting stars. I could imagine something like that inspiring theories about shooting stars being malevolent spies.

  15. M27Holts says:

    SOG. No Alcohol beer? Thats like having Megan Fox begging for sex and the third party suggesting they have a nice cup of tea instead…hahah

  16. OtterBe says:

    After years of [metaphorically (mostly!)] waking up in the gutter, I tried NA beer. I found it to be foul and certainly not worth the 30% premium over real beer, so contented myself with fancy coffee. That was decades ago, mind, so maybe it’s gotten better.

    (Replying to comment from last week). Glad you’re enjoying it as it’s always good to share something I liked. Oak, and Guns, Germs, and Steel started a casual interest in ancient history and pre-history I still enjoy to this day. Learning about millennia-old technologies was eye-opening for me. Plus, it’s a great refuge from today’s news torrent.

  17. Shaughn says:

    OtterBe, to my great delight there are references to the Arthurian Romances and, oh joy, even Marmite is mentioned. Thanks again for bringing Oak to my attention and have anther beer!

  18. Shaughn says:

    I revived my avatar, now how do I get it here?

  19. Son of Glenner says:

    (20:00 on 17 March 2023) I wonder how M27Holts’ Paddy-day party is getting on by now? My guess is the younger generation are mostly drinking responsibly and setting a good example while the older generation are blootered and a cause for much embarrassment. I just hope nobody has resorted to fisticuffs. Yet!

    Things are looking good for Ireland in the Six Nations tomorrow. I wish them well despite their beating Scotland last time.

    Here in Aberdeen, there are a few people going around dressed as leprechauns but otherwise well-behaved; no doubt this will change as the evening wears on.

    Sláinte for now, SoG.

  20. Succubus ov Satan says:

    Why would ‘devils’ want to eavesdrop and what would they gain from hearing and moreover what would be lost by their enemies?

  21. M27Holts says:

    I survived….bad head this morning tho, had to take paracetamol…and andrews….just ordered a dominoes…..

  22. Laripu says:

    Given how carefully thet inspection your luggage at airports, a real miracle would be getting snakes into Ireland.

    Hmm, maybe the ferry from Holyhead to Dublin, with a large heated aquarium full of snakes in the trunk (boot, to you). Irish Ferries or the Stena Line both allow cars across.

    In a mere afternoon, you could perform a reverse Patrick miracle and become the patron saint of Irish ophiologists.

    But I don’t recommend it. 😀

  23. M27Holts says:

    Loads of Irish snake fanciers I reckon or is it illegal to own a snake in Ireland?

  24. M27Holts says:

    Anyway, due to iceage and geographical isolation from mainland Europe about 2000 years ago, snakes didn’t make it to Ireland , so the saint was telling lies…who would have guessed that?
