A Fermanagh man has been nominated for a Nobel Science Prize for his discovery that if you put your own hand into a fire that it will indeed burn, and in turn be very painful; depending on how long you keep it in the fire. The findings were made.....yadda yadda....bla bla bla...
Now obviously this sounds like a load of bull dung does it not? Well then, whats the big difference in that, and what I watched today live from Oslo. The President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. Yeah, ok, he by no means started the 'War on Terror' or whatever video game esque name they give it these days, but he hasn't really done anything to stop these wars has he? In fact he wants to throw more money and troops at the problem. War monger? No, certainly not. Man of Peace? Well, actions speak louder than words, so no, and most certainly not worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize. One postive is that the man himself seemed quite embarrassed at receiving the prize, and its not like hes gonna turn it down......he did receive 1 million euros for it!
I'm sure in time he will earn this prize, more hope really.
