After seeing Kate Smurthwaite shut down one of her counterparts in a religious debate (she was representing the National Secular Society), I came up with this new image.
Before posting it, I sent it to her to see if she was okay with it.
She replied saying that she loved it – and that she had also sent it to Nicky Campbell (the show host). I highly recommend looking her up.

Every now and then something on YouTube turns out to be genuinely funny – and not just some junk that some dope has mashed up with a low resolution camera phone.
Minesweeper – The Movie is one of those clips.
It was an odd stumbling that lead me to find the clip – one of those link to a link to a link to a link….
It started when Twitters directory went down, which left me unable to search for people to follow. This lead to me looking on Google for a secondary Twitter based directory.
Google pointed me to MrTweet – a Twitter feed that looks at your own Twitter feed and suggests other feed that you might be interested in (among other things – but this isn’t about the great MrTweet, so I won’t go into that in this blog entry).
The MrTweet information gave me a whole list of names based on people I follow and the people who are followed by the people I follow (and maybe the people who are followed by the people that are followed by the people I follow… and maybe even……..ad lib and fade). MrTweet was a good find though – so take a look.
One of the names it suggested was “hexadus” (apparently currently making millions in the philosophy industry).
I started to follow hexadus and soon saw a re-posted post (re-tweeted or just rt) that one of his followers had posted. This other Tweeter was “Jimbo724” and the original tweet he had posted that hexadus had then re-tweeted was a spoof based on the “wrong side of the tracks boy who the posh girl falls for” type movies… it was about CHESS.
So…. I take a look at the chess YouTube clip that hexodus had re-tweeted from Jimbo724’s tweet, and after watching it (and physically laughing out loud) I saw a “related video” listed in the YouTube menu…. which was Minesweeper – The Movie – and there we are.
I would like to take this opportunity to say that at not one point in this blog post did I say this was going to be interesting, so I apologise for nothing!
