I Don't believe in Coincidence

I smiled when I saw the title of this youtube film and then smiled a lot more when I got to see the whole thing:

So that was fine, and I nearly moved on to other pointless things, when i saw this cartoon in my inbox:

Which made me think that there was a sign out there for me to share it with you all.

My Rabbi Is Tougher Than Your Rabbi

Seriously? That's the level I'm stooping to? Yes, it appears that I am.

Despite the fact that Israel has a highly motivated and, sadly, highly active. army, the link between 'Rabbi' and 'Ultimate Warrior' has been lacking. Until now:

A California rabbi stepped into the cage for his first amateur MMA bout recently and won via TKO in the second round, according to FOX News (via The Algemeiner). Yossi Eilfort began training just six months ago under former UFC fighter Thierry Sokoudjou and said he never hit anyone in the face before.
His goal was to promote self-defense and fitness in the Orthodox Jewish community. Eilfort wanted the “physical, personal, mental challenge” -- not to injure someone.

“I believe if we’re not challenging ourselves, then we’re wasting time,” Eilfort said.

Yeah, my Rabbi can DEFINITELY beat up your Rabbi!

I'm British

Well, there's no denying it. I'm British.

I spell things in a different way; colour, grey, aluminium, favourite,

I have words that others don't understand; trousers, underpants, grocer

And of course, have a different meaning to some words; braces, buns, democracy...

Well, Prof. Elemental has really stated quite well what we're all about;

Too Much Murder?

Like any red blooded young chap who owns a TV in 2011 I get to see a lot of murders on TV.

There are some great detailed  detective work in some of the amazing shows in the list below, which I have put in order of which ones I am addicted to the most at the beginning;

Sherlock, NCIS, Morse, Justified, Memphis Blue, Frost, The Glades, Bones, Bergerac, CSI, CSI Miami, CSI Hoboken, TaggartCSI New York, Law + Order, Criminal Minds, The Protector, The Closer, Dexter

Danny Cohen, who I respect tremendously, in his position of head of BBC1 in the UK, who create a myriad of high class detective shows,  was recently quoted in the Daily telegraph as saying shortly before the latest rush of detective shows hit our screens, there’s simply too much of this crime stuff on the telly. “One of the things I want to do,” Mr Cohen, the network’s youngest-ever controller, explained helpfully, “is to broaden the palette a bit.”

Interesting attitude. Is it for the TV show makers to decide what people see or is it up to the viewing public? Admittedly the most watched shows in the US and UK are not dramas or murder shows but are in fact the talent shows where 'normal people' get to strut their stuff.

So should we be watching reality murders? Are we already watching too much murder on tv? The infographic below, and more importantly, it's popularity around the world in 2011 as opposed to 2001 - might lean us towards an answer;
