Random Musing

“Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.”- Carl Jung

One of those pucker up moments …

One those moments when you come soooooo close to getting squashed : – –

An almost hollywood style settling of the rock inches from the car.

A coup like thingy – maybe …

Back in the UK after some time in Estonia for a break from UK bollocks!

The following (via Zerohedge) is a rather amusing take on US hypocrisy when it comes to aid to foreign nations :- _ _

Words that do not belong together …

Sitting here in Tallinn enjoying some much needed rest I was flicking through BBC News to see if anything was happening in the world when I cam across one of those headlines that makes a jarring sound in your head when you read it because some words just do not belong together in a […]

That was one hell of a bang …

Video capturing the moment the Texas fertiliser plant went boom yesterday reportedly killing at least 70 and, if the video is anything to go by, probably many more.

From CNN :

On Wednesday evening, a fire at the plant suddenly exploded with a huge, deafening bang, throwing people to the ground blocks away. It […]

Video Interlude – Putin gawping at bristols …

The Russian President’s face is rather amusing in this video clip at around 8 seconds when the Putin and Merkel press conference gets gatecrashed by a pair of topless protesters : _ _

I am not sure whether he was getting ready to fend the woman off or cop a feel Russian style when […]

Compare and contrast – warmist alarmism of 2000 vs snowbound reality of 2013

A reminder of what we were warned of back in 2000 from the infamous Independent article – it is still online but a bugger to get to load so here is the text I grabbed a couple of years ago :

Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past

Britain’s winter ends tomorrow […]

When a BBC headline looks more exciting than it actually is …

The following headline on the BBC News landing page caught my eye in a “what on earth will they research next” kind of way (honestly!) :

Only to be somewhat disappointed by the actual article :

Scientists say they have published the most detailed brain scans “the world has ever seen” as part […]

Whilst work is preventing anything useful here, how about these lucky buggers :

Parents think it is too dangerous to let their kids play in the snow. I wonder why that is …

We seem to have become a timid race here in the UK.

From the Torygraph, we have this :

Nearly a third of parents believe it is “too dangerous” to let their children play outside in the snow, in case they slip on ice or get hit by a snowball, a survey has shown. […]

Even The Daily Mash would consider this news story to be too bizarre …

The opening paragraphs from two articles, one from The BBC and one from The Daily Mash – the question is, which is which?

Article A :

SKY viewers on unemployment benefits will only be allowed to watch documentaries, according to new guidelines.

As part of a radical government overhaul of televised entertainment, those out […]

The world’s most useless machine gets an upgrade …

The world’s most useless machine has been upgraded – looks like fun for an hour or two at least : _ _

Now we have to wait for the upgraded version to throw a tantrum just like version II did.

Back to the UK which is decidedly still in la-la land …

The Wasp is knackered after a long day of wing flapping to return to this strange little isle, where it would seem the government is still as demented as a box of frogs :

The prime minister said it was vitally important the government maintained its “credibility for deficit reduction” so it could continue […]

I would not want to be fishing off Denmark later …

Not very often you see Hurricane Force 12 mentioned in a met office forecast along with some stomach churning seas (phenomenal definition here) :
