They're a bunch of retarded rednecks, I don't think they exist anymore though ? (not sure)

They definitely still exist, though they're only a tiny fraction of what they once were.

He was quite funny as a stand up comedian, many years ago.  I absolutely hate his movies though.

Oh oh Trev: I just looked it up on wiki.

Quote
During the last quarter of a match, supporters blow vuvuzelas frantically in an attempt to "kill off" their opponents

Really?  That must be quite the assault on the senses!

Quote
The world football governing body, FIFA, wanted to ban the use of vuvuzelas during the World Cup 2010 because of concerns that hooligans could use the instrument as a weapon and that businesses could place advertisements on vuvuzelas. However the South African Football Association (SAFA) made a presentation that vuvuzelas were essential for an authentic South African football experience,[2] and FIFA decided in July 2008 to drop the ban, allowing vuvuzelas at Confederations Cup.[15] President of FIFA Sepp Blatter opposed banning the vuvuzela, saying "We should not try to Europeanise an African World Cup."[16] FIFA ultimately decided to allow the instrument for the 2010 World Cup as well.

Sounds (yes that is a pun) like you are out of luck!

Quote
Some football commentators, players, and international audiences argued against the vuvuzela during the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup. During the match between United States and Italy, BBC Three commentator Lee Dixon referred to the sounds as "quite irritating".

- this made me laugh: "quite irritating" - how very 'Brit' of him!

Quote
During the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Hyundai and a local South African advertising agency called Jupiter Drawing Room created the largest working vuvuzela in the world - 114 feet (35 m) long - on an unfinished flyover road in Cape Town.[20] The vuvuzela is powered by several air horns attached at the mouth piece end, and it will be blown at the beginning of each of the World Cup Matches.

Ummm...Trevor, maybe it is a good thing you were not able to get tickets?  You'll be able to hear that thing everywhere!

The confused and self-conflicting feelings I get whenever I try and sort out my thoughts on important topics such as politics or religion, but it's certainly not limited to those topics.

Too many things in this world drive me insane. Here's a few:

Screamers : Of all the pranks on the internet, I friggin' hate these most of all. My first experience with one of these abominations was on halloween when I was in grade five. It screwed me up ever since. What drives me even more insane is when dumbass parents show their kids these things PLUS videotape the kid's reaction. I've seen a few of these and it not only makes me hate screamers more, but it also proves to me that parents don't give a crap about their child's mental health.

Heavy Metal Haters : As a fan of metal, it truly grinds my s*** when I hear stupid people (mainly crazy religious people and pop fans) make stupid assumptions about Metal when in reality they know absolutley nothing about the genre.

Religious Extremists : Now, as you all probably know, I'm Roman Catholic. I've been trying to follow God as best I can and have been trying to change some of my lifestyles and attitudes. I try not to be overly angry and judgemental, but when I hear about these lowlife extremists on the internet or in the news, I can't help but want to hurt these people. Jack Chick, Jesus Camp and the Phelps family are the main ones that p**s me off. These people claim to speak for God when in actuality, they're trying to brainwash, scare and disturb the people that they are trying to "save". Jack sends out buls*** messages about other religious groups, rock 'n' roll, dungeons and dragons, etc.
Jesus Camp brainwashes kids into becoming terrorists and we all know about the Phelps family.

That's all I have for now.

I immediately distrust ANYONE who makes the slightest suggestion that they are speaking for God. I'm a deist, so I don't follow any religion or doctrine based on the Judeo-Christian Bible, the Quran, or any other supposedly "inspired" text. If I used those teachings or doctrines as the basis of my faith, I would have a pretty shoddy opinion of God.

Drivers who break for no apparent reason over and over again. WTF are you breaking for!

"I'm sure we all agree that we ought to love one another, and I know there are people in the world that do not love their fellow human beings, and I HATE PEOPLE LIKE THAT." -Tom Lehrer, "National Brotherhood Week"

There are a couple tests of a person's character that don't fail. The first is how they treat service people. The second is how they drive. If somebody you know fails these tests, they are a***oles, pure and true.

The internet adds a new wrinkle:

Thankfully, Cape Town is far from us.  Wink

That unfinished highway is a great South African legend ~ started in the late 1960's, the highway was never completed due to a design fault leaving the highest part of it suspended in mid-air. Quite frightening when you're up there and movie and commercial crews have used either sides ~ separated by a kilometre or so of open space ~ for stunts.

This is a picture of the vuvuzela on one of the highways:  Buggedout



And, off the same bridge, this is to show you how bad my driving is when I'm in Cape Town.  Wink




It's actually a still from the film Consequence filmed in Cape Town.
