Random Musing

“When you have once seen the glow of happiness on the face of a beloved person, you know that a man can have no vocation but to awaken that light on the faces surrounding him; and you are torn by the thought of the unhappiness and night you cast, by the mere fact of living, in the hearts you encounter.”- Albert Camus

What do you do when a tornado is heading for your apartment? Why film it of course!

A tornado in Portugal recently scoring a direct hit on a football stadium and apartment block.

Filming it through a glass window may not have been the brightest thing in the world, especially when you see the strength of the wind but it gives a great impression of what they are actually like. I […]

A study of 8,800 people over 50 showed high blood pressure and being overweight also seemed to affect the brain, but to […]

Pictorial Interlude – A day in the park, slap me, slap me more, why you shouldn’t rely on your kids in the event of an accident and the nature of bees and wasps ..

Housekeeping notice

Apparently comments have been buggered for a little while – this appears to have been caused by a misbehaving plugin which has been taken out to the back yard and quietly murdered.

Hopefully everything is now in order again.

Video Interlude – Honduras – the place to go to watch the planes land … just don’t actually fly there ..

Having occasionally spent a few hours at the end of various runways watching the planes land for nothing more than the spectacle of a few hundred tonnes of aluminium bowling in at a rate of knots I can certainly say that none of those occasions match the following video for entertainment.

Video Interlude – A satanic ninja cat and a failed suicide attempt that ends with a sore jaw …

When it comes to dogs, this cat does not take prisoners :

I am not sure what this guy was trying to achieve but I am sure his view of the probable outcomes did not include getting smacked in the mouth :
