Paid a visit to a local country pub on Sunday and I think it will be that last time they get my business.
Well there is a rather nice beer garden where you can sit and watch the country views whilst having a pint and a fag and then there is the […]
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 […]
Nag, nag, nag …
Today started for me at 04:30 when the radio alarm came on with an NHS advert reminding me that A&E and 999 are only for emergencies. After a shower and coffee, I drove a few junctions down the motorway and was reminded on the first overhead sign not […]
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. […]
Not very often you see Hurricane Force 12 mentioned in a met office forecast along with some stomach churning seas (phenomenal definition here) :

Isn’t it amazing how bansturbator types are all too happy to ignore research that contradicts their message, even if some of the contradiction is in the same damned research paper that they are using to press forward with their shroud waving calls to stop us doing something they deem bad for […]
Impressive, bordering on outright stupidity and definitely not one for those with a dislike of heights : _ _ I wonder how many of those guys are still around?

Playing with your Uzi whilst dining is not recommended!
A somewhat bizarre tale from the Bangkok Post :
Mae Hong Son Senator Boonsong Kowawisarat accidentally shot and killed his personal secretary with a submachine gun in a restaurant in Phrae province, police said.
The shooting took place at a […]
The guy in the following video (assuming he is still around after that mangling) must be the unluckiest person alive. Not content with being run over by his own truck after what appears to be an effort to stop it rolling away, he then gets run over by the second truck on the drive […]
Estonian season’s greetings from The Wasp and Mr Raccoon!
After several years of saying I would get myself over to Estonia at Christmas time, I finally made it over and seem to have fallen into one or two beer bottles as wasps tend to do which may partially explain the deafening silence that has […]
