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.

Worthing Sea Front as you have never seen it before …

If Terry Gilliam had had computers to create his Monty Python animated sections, I think he would have come close to this madness :- _ _

Stick with it – it gets very deranged!

Is that a little BBC bias I spy?

On the subject of hydraulic fracturing of shale gas formations (fracking if you must), one of the main objections seems to be the possibility of groundwater contamination from the chemicals involved in the water injection process. Whilst the proportion of chemical additive to water is very low, there are large amounts of water involved […]

It was only a matter of time but it’s for the children of course!

Paid a visit to a local country pub on Sunday and I think it will be that last time they get my business.

The problem?

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 […]

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 :- _ _

A rather amusing take on Facebook’s new privacy settings …

Spotted in passing at Zerohedge, this made me chuckle :

Mark J Grant on the EU …

Mark Grant is always an amusing read and here is his latest missive reposted in all it’s semi-psychedelic glory, for it amused me :

“For him it was a dark passage which led to nowhere, then to nowhere, then again to nowhere, once again to nowhere, always and forever to nowhere, heavy on the […]

Now this is how you make a car advert …

One hell of an advert for your latest car and beautiful audio too – what more could you want?

Bollocks to all the paint trails and jumping cars!

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 […]

Pictorial Interlude – Skills with a forklift and a special offer …

As I enter the final week of too many hours at work, a couple of snippets which caught my eye.

Firstly, whoever is driving the forklift seems to have been spending more hours practicing tricks than doing anything useful – impressive none the less :

And a special offer that you don’t see […]

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 […]

Does your car need a little more oomph? How about 147.1 liters and 10000 horse power?

Having always been fascinated by mechanical things, this one caught my eye rather quickly :

It started life as a Russian 42 cylinder diesel radial engine putting out around 4000 hp and used in Soviet missile boats which had three of these beasts installed :

As it weighed 5.4 tonnes in its […]
