April 23rd, 2010 · 2 Comments · Politics

Yes it is only two weeks until the big wobbly sausage! If that makes it sound like I am losing my marbles a bit, I refer you to this story in the Telegraph, specifically the end bit.

Subheadline of the week

March 18th, 2010 · Comments Off on Subheadline of the week · Life

I can’t find any way to read this story from The Register without my mind boggling.  The headline is eye-catching enough (Florida woman prangs car while shaving her privates) but the subheadline is pure genius.

Golden Brown – with a touch of grey

March 2nd, 2010 · Comments Off on Golden Brown – with a touch of grey · Music

Apparently the Stranglers will be playing at Glastonbury this year.  I was astonished to learn today that their drummer, Jet Black, is 71.  No wonder they decided to pack in touring.  I know it is a job you can do sitting down, but I still think it requires a lot of energy to play the […]

Pointless, unproductive and fun

February 26th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Technology

If you saw a link on a website that pointed to http://5z8.info/cats-being-dropped-into-the-sea_p6d8l_hot-older-goats.mov I bet you would think twice before following it – and then decide not to.  If you received an email with a link to http://5z8.info/olive-loaf-penetration.gif_u0p8z_ninjastaroutlet it would probably get stopped by your mail filters and marked as spam or potential malware.  But you […]

Now that’s what I call a health warning

February 2nd, 2010 · Comments Off on Now that’s what I call a health warning · Life

Did everybody see the story about the bloke in Indonesia who was smoking a cigarette when it exploded and blew six of his teeth out? A couple of things to note: He got compensation of £335 (plus medical expenses).  Doesn’t sound a lot for what must have been a pretty traumatic experience. The brand he […]

National TV Awards

January 22nd, 2010 · Comments Off on National TV Awards · Life

I caught something on the news this morning about the National TV Awards which really summed up for me the atrocious state of British TV at the moment: X Factor won the award for best most popular TV talent show, which implies there are now so many of the damn things it is worth having […]

iPhone alternative

November 30th, 2009 · Comments Off on iPhone alternative · Life

Want an iPhone for Christmas but can’t really afford the huge monthly charges? Well here is something that is a lot cheaper and yet still reassuringly overpriced for what it actually is while being strangely desirable despite everything.  Easier to use than a real iPhone as well!

Hat tip to Angry people in local papers You know what?  I reckon even I could get a job as a police artist in Bolivia.  Love the way they keep zooming in on the picture to try and make it scary… You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video

Postal miracle

October 17th, 2009 · Comments Off on Postal miracle · Life

I received a letter today and I have no idea how it got to the right house.    The address on it was my name but the address of the secretary of Horsham Labour Party – yet it was delivered to my house. In the past if anything has gone to Ray’s address he has either […]

Run that by me again

October 11th, 2009 · Comments Off on Run that by me again · Politics

At work we have TV screens in various public areas like in the canteen and the lobby area outside the lifts.  The screens display a slideshow of company information, but also have a scrolling RSS feed of the latest BBC news headlines.  On Friday one of the headlines was “French ‘boy sex’ minister issues denial” […]
