Dangermouse

The good folk at driverchris don't believe in fate, ghosts, astrology or frankly any of the superstitious claptrap that seems unaccountably popular. Karma doesn't exist in any sense other than the rather nice idea that if you spend your day with a kind word and a helping hand for everybody you meet hopefully they'll pass it on too. Perhaps the world would be a better place if the universe did run on a karmic basis. But surely that's a convoluted way of saying "think about the consequences of your actions, and don't act like a twat".

The Associated Press reports on Sunday, January 8, 2006:
FORT SUMNER, New Mexico. - A mouse got its revenge against a homeowner who tried to dispose of it in a pile of burning leaves. The blazing creature ran back to the man's house and set it on fire.
Luciano Mares, 81, of Fort Sumner said he caught the mouse inside his house and wanted to get rid of it.

"I had some leaves burning outside, so I threw it in the fire, and the mouse was on fire and ran back at the house," Mares said from a motel room Saturday.Village Fire Chief Juan Chavez said the burning mouse ran to just beneath a window, and the flames spread up from there and throughout the house.

No was hurt inside, but the home and everything in it was destroyed.

Good. I hope the insurance firm stiff the old bastard. Hopefully it's technically arson too.

That'll learn him.

Should have gone to McDonalds if he wanted a cooked mouse, like everyone else has to.

I like karma - it is so grossly irrational that you can quickly ascertain the reasoning ability of many individuals by asking if they believe in it.

Karma is a bit like Lamarckism, a discredited theory of heredity, the "inheritance of acquired traits" (and not a theory about be-quiffed comics).

Both have qualities that feel seductively right so it can be hard to shake off the fact that they're wrong.

And who says it's all swearing here?

I believe in karma. Do something REALLY bad in a past life and come back as a football manager that comes close to, but never actually achieves any real success in his profession, and then enrage the entire nation while doing a press conference about spastics/mentals an' that.


Mmmm, that's good satire.
