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 […]

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 ..

Apologies for the lack of anything other than the odd dust kitty and tumbleweed around here lately – work has taken a turn for the rediculous it seems.

In the mean time, amuse yourselves with this little selection ..

I liked this one as soon as I spotted it – very nicely drawn and […]

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. Honduras certainly looks […]

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 :

Video Interlude – Nothing like a good building blowdown to raise the spirits …

And, not just one but over 100 blasted structures on this video produced for a 2003 museum exhibition in Amsterdam : _ _

Video Interlude – probably one of the strangest things you have never seen … Epic Tea Time

Take a very slow motion Alan Rickman, a tea bag, slice of lemon, cup of boiling water, a glass desk with assorted office items and the track Mind Heist from the film Inception and you have the following – I recommend starting the clip, change the quality to HD and go full screen and […]

Video Interlude – Ninja motorbike rider crashes and watch out for the ice on the pool – it’s thicker than you thought …

This guy just has to be a ninja in his spare time …

Remember all the warnings you have seen about the dangers of thin ice? How about if the ice is a little thicker than you thought – cue broken tailbone I think …

Pictorial Interlude – Beautiful photograpy and skater skillz …

This one caught my eye :

I think it needs a trip to the barbers but beautifully captured.

This one makes me feel cold even though it resembles a volcano – a frozen street lamp :

and finally, skaterz may be assholes but they certainly have skillz :

Pictorial Interlude – The no toilet paper walk, politically correct tools and John the Snail …

Too much work to write anything of substance so have a look at some of the more amusing items I came across in an idle half hour :

A most undignified form of exercise which must surely owe its creation to the toilet paper walk described by the comment :

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 […]

Bad Children’s Books.

Having seen a few examples of books you never thought would be published (you will find some on here such as these, these, and these), I think I finally found the answer in the works of Bob Staake who designs retro looking book covers with  very amusing titles.

His Gallery has a full set […]
