    2. Amongst our weaponry are such diverse elements as: fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope, and nice red uniforms – Oh damn!

    7. Wikipedia powers GO!

      It was a trial system set up in Spain in 1478 to maintain Catholic orthodoxy, which was to replace the papal tribunal system. It had jurisdiction only over baptized Christians. The Inquisition worked in large part to ensure the orthodoxy of recent converts.

      It is estimated that the Inquisition had burned at the stake 2,000 people and reconciled another 15,000 by 1490

      So, not really a Holocaust. More people than that die in wars every day.

    10. A Monty Python sketch that doesn’t get enough attention:

      Confuse-A-Cat:
      “Your cat is suffering from what we vets haven’t found a word for”

      “Moping, hmm, I should remember that”

      “Confusers! Get into the van and fetch out . . . wait for it . . . fetch out! The funny things!”

      Especially the TV version where he goes to his brother’s shop in Essex, what a great episode altogether. I always wondered before I had really watched many episodes if they all held together as well as the few I’ve seen and the answer is, sort of. They hold together well enough to keep me entertained anyway.

      @nyokki:
      You’re close. They don’t say sports. They say “sport” at least that’s the way it sounds to me in the episode “Archaeology Today” (you’ve got Netflix, the whole damn series is on streaming, you probably know this, and its awesome.)

      From the same episode:

      You know, there are many people in the country today who, through no fault of their own, are sane. Some of them were born sane. Some of them became sane later in their lives. It is up to people like you and me who are out of our tiny little minds to try and help these people overcome their sanity. You can start in small ways with ping-pong ball eyes and a funny voice and then you can paint half of your body red and the other half green and then you can jump up and down in a bowl of treacle going ‘squawk, squawk, squawk… ‘ And then you can go ‘Neurhhh! Neurhh!’ and then you can roll around on the floor going ‘pting pting pting’…

    15. @RSIxidor: When I got Netflix a few years ago, the first thing I ordered was the whole Monty Python series.
