The news is in, after life is boring....

I've been binging on BBC documentaries lately and after I listened to an episode about witch doctors in Africa, I came upon this little gem.

The Dead News Network
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00hzsm9

Anne tells Colette Kinsella what it’s like to have a life like the film, The Sixth Sense, how bored spirits play havoc with her love life, and why grocery shopping is a challenge.

Listening to this program I learned such valuable information such as,

  • After life is boring
  • RC oppresses people
  • People who talk to spirits are like Moses
  • Spirits will not give the lottery numbers  Undecided
  • Spirits are great snitches when it comes to your boyfriends
  • We all have this ability!

There is an interesting moment near the end of the program, where the journalist mentions to her relatives that she spoke to a medium and her dead father through her. The journalist then remarks that instead of her relatives being apprehensive about it all, they ask her if her father asked about them....!  This sadly says it all.

Very sad.

Old news.  The Church told us we can pray to departed saints long before Crazy McLoonytoons came along.  Grin

I  used to read the BBC daily. Now I don't read much on the news.

I always say, no news is dead news.
