I think it would be nice pleasant to have a mocking thread.

As performed nowadays, they do tend to leave out this verse:

The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
God made them high and lowly,
And ordered their estate.

Wouldn't want the Great Unwashed to blame Gawd for their lowly estate now would we?

I'd say that verse was the original point of the song and that other fluff was just window dressing to make it look nice.

A corking read. :D
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Wikipedia wrote:State Religious Affairs Bureau Order No. 5

State Religious Affairs Bureau Order No. 5 […] is an order from the State Administration for Religious Affairs,[1] the People's Republic of China's agency charged with keeping religion under state control. Order No. 5 states that a Reincarnation Application must be filed by all Buddhist temples in that country before they are allowed to recognize individuals as tulkus (reincarnated teachers).

Tibetan Buddhists believe lamas and other religious figures can consciously influence how they are reborn, and often are reborn many times so they can continue their religious pursuits. These tulkus are referred to in sources translated from Chinese as living Buddhas. In 2007, the Chinese government passed a decree, to take effect September 1, that each of these people who plan to be reborn must complete an application and submit it to several government agencies for approval.

That's easy. Get reborn outside China.

What are they going to do?
