In God's name........?

Researchers at Oxford University have compiled a list of the

top 10 most irritating phrases.

These are,apparently,as follows:

The top ten most irritating phrases:

1 - At the end of the day

2 - Fairly unique

3 - I personally

4 - At this moment in time

5 - With all due respect

6 - Absolutely

7 - It's a nightmare

8 - Shouldn't of

9 - 24/7

10 - It's not rocket science

(this list as published in the Daily Telegraph ).


Personally, the one that irritates me the most is that one

which implies that one person or another (usually clerics

of whatever faith,but occasionally politicians) has some

'special relationship', elitist position, unique insight, into

God's will for humanity.I find it irritating because,more often

than not, their claim is refuted by their actions!

If it isn't loving,forgiving,compassionate,enduring, almost

certainly derives it's origin from a human source that is somewhat

disconnected from it's divine linkage.

Come fly with me...............

The other day I got an e-mail message saying simply this: Rosa Parks sat in 1955. Martin Luther King walked in 1963. Barack Obama ran in 2008. That our children might fly.

from an article by one of my favourites,Roger Cohen,NYT.

Google,CNN,etc. So I was 'stuck' at for all my data. Here's their headline,up at 04-05 am Swedish time
