Very lazy bat …

This one amused me somewhat :

I am not sure if it is an ex-bat or if it just felt the need to put its feet up while sleeping.

Still not as good as bat kitty though  :



Having failed to prevent Ash Dieback arriving in the UK, the Government tries the Canute method to stop it spreading …

Wandering around amongst the latest Statutory Instruments, I came across this one in which the Government tries to pull a King Canute and orders the fungus not to spread (emphasis mine) :

The Plant Health (England) (Amendment) Order 2012

This Order amends the Plant Health (England) Order 2005 (S.I. 2005/2530) to […]


You would not want to be at the pointy end of an A10 Warthog gatling gun …

Whilst idling away an hour or so as an antidote to too much work, I came across the following rather impressive clip of an A10 Warthog gatling gun being test fired.

Whilst it may sound something like the foghorn on Bridlington pier, I really would not want to be at the pointy end of […]


When spending other people’s money, the sky is the limit …

A snippet from a BBC article on Sheffield’s £2 billion PFI funded road improvement program proving that you can buy what the hell you like when spending other people’s money :

Trees and kerbs will also be improved and a further 1,000 litter bins are planned for the city.

Some of the bins are […]


Pictorial Interlude – Cactus Art …

I found this one rather amusing in it’s simplicity :

Good to have a chuckle after a shitty day …



Amusing quotes taken out of context – depraved sexual acts of hooligan males ..

I would give you several hundred guesses as to the topic of the news article where the following quote comes from and am pretty sure you would never guess :

He was shocked by what he described as the “depraved” sexual acts of “hooligan” males who were mating with dead females. So distressed was […]


101 things to do with a dead cat. Erm .. make that 102 – CatCopter!

Onw way to preserve the pussy you loved and annoy the neighbours with your necromantic skills – turn your deceased feline into a Cat-Helicopter hybrid : _ _



A fascinating video showing 1000 years of European history in 3 minutes.

Spotted at ZeroHedge, the following video demands several viewings if only to see everything going on in various parts of Europe as empires ebb and flow. One particularly impressive moment in the video is when Germany becomes a unified country rather than a myriad small states and then suddenly explodes to colour the whole […]


Mark Grant on Greece – get the right sunglasses ..

For a much more informative view on Greece, Spain and Europe in general than you will find in any of our MSM, look no further than Mark Grant writing at ZeroHedge where he finishes with this excellent quote :

If Greece defaults on its debts it is a $1.3 trillion dollar number, forget the […]


Video Interlude – when parking your shiny new cargo ship, just remember that stopping takes quite a long time …

… unless that is you ram it right into another parked ship followed quickly by the quayside :




Pictorial Interlude – weather reporter smackdown and sport before Health and Safety …

A couple of laughs courtesy of Mr Raccoon.

First, this weather reported getting a smack in the chops from a stop sign – I suspect it’s a comedy clip from somewhere but you never know :

And how sport used to be before everyone got so concerned about Health and Safety – it […]


Quote of the day – Voltaire on killing …

This one amused me somewhat :

It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.

Voltaire French author, humanist, rationalist, & satirist (1694 – 1778)



Soon we will all be terrorists …

Via The BBC, how long before all police are anti-terror officers and all thoughts are terror related :

Five men have been arrested on suspicion of publishing material to incite racial hatred.

Computer equipment and mobile phones are thought to have been seized by police during early morning raids in Tyneside, Birkenhead, Barnsley, […]


Pictorial Interlude – Amazing architecture, Yoda the Squirrel and a racist tree.

A rather impressive house in China of all places :

Yoda lives on in the body of a Red Squirrel :

And an interesting little tale with parallels to life in the EU :



A new idea from Greece – the negative salary where you pay to have a job.

The details of the EU driven raping of Greece to save the European banks reveal some interesting consequences as in this from ZeroHedge :

Salary cutbacks (called “unified payroll”) for contract workers at the public sector set to be finalized today. Cuts to be valid retroactively since november 2011. Expected result: Up to […]
