When did the History Channel become so crap? Years ago, it was actually interesting. I lost contact with it because we did not always have cable, fuck it, we didn’t even have a telephone growing up.
However, I am always surprised by how rubbish the History Channel is these days. It is all about the world’s most haunted houses and Ancient Aliens creating the world and humanity before they fecked off in their spaceships to leave us all here to fight it out between ourselves.
Although I do wonder if there are aliens out there who secretly record people having sex, then make them into boring, educational shows to show their kids on the Human Planet channel….but still, it is a long fall from grace and fact based knowledge.

Instead of having people singing and being judged by people who cannot sing, why not just offer the one million dollar music contract to the first person who can thread a string through the eye of a needle while blindfolded in a tank full of hungry sharks or Zombeavers?

After the recent storms, thousands of people were left without electricity and clean drinking water. In a typical Irish response, a Public Health Safety Announcement warned us to boil water and let it cool before drinking it. The one problem being that we had no fucking electricity to boil the water, only people with gas cookers had that luxury.
So trees were down, blocking the roads, crushing cars and houses in equal measure.
What I did notice, though were Preppers. You know; the kind of
pricks people who prepare for these catastrophic events and then rub it in everyone’s faces. There was this guy on one of the News reports who is a Prepper and was prepared for every eventuality. Every eventuality except human stupidity.
He had thought of everything , He had light, heat, food, internet access via his phone and clean water. I remember thinking how he had thought of everything, and we could all learn a thing or two from him. However, he was also on television, and his name was on television and the town he was from was also given, not that it would have mattered, as you could easily recognise the town from the images, the News people were showing.
And I thought to myself, if I lived near this guy and knew he had all this stuff and enough to last three months as he claimed. And I was there, cold, hungry and sitting in the dark, what is stopping me going over to this guy’s house and stealing all his shit?
The first rule of Preppers Club should be that you are not a member of Preppers Club.
