Is the Pope Catholic? and other Myths?

An example of street markets accepting credit ...Image via WikipediaListening to a promotion for the stupid sensationalist news shows that I never watch here in Adelaide. Yes more stupid than the supposedly serious news. I was shocked to hear that they were going to share how to stay out of the Christmas Credit Card Debt Trap.

Hello! Just leave them at home. Don't use them. Duh! This with retailers expecting a bumper Christmas shopping season here in Adelaide as prices rise and job security falls. Seems that not too many will be heeding the advice of the television equivalent of the News of the World.

Also in that category the thought that you can avoid a hangover by swallowing eels and vegemite and the like and that Coca Cola is an effective spermicide.

Hello just don't drink. I know that is the pot calling the kettle black, but as I get older I see that it has some merit especially if you plan to be productive the next day.

Oh and I liked the debunking of the argument related to wearing a hat when it is cold. I was so predisposed to believe that one and had no issue with selling that story to the kids when we were out in the not so cold Adelaide winter weather.

Oh well, more myths shattered and false misperceptions debunked.

Perhaps Santa Claus really does exist.

Of course the Pope is not a Catholic. By definition he's a Protestant, since he's free to follow his own conscience. In fact, the Pope is the only Protestant in the RC church. Nice one.

They offer these words of wisdom every single year. You'd think people would have learnt by now.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.
