THIS STINKS

pc and is every bit—though few will agree with, or even recognise my point—as bad as what it purportedly opposes:

Nazi Grandma,’ 88, Convicted of Holocaust Denial in Germany

Why?

Why would a humanist like moi cast aspersions upon the brain dead morality-deprived wannabe dogooders ani* of Germany?

AT THE RISK

of insulting such few readers as I have—

THINK ABOUT IT

—and if you can’t see any contradictions between ‘Free Speech’ and shutting people up for speaking …

Weeelll, I have this wonderful bridge for sale—only slightly used, in Sydney Harbour. Free for removal, in fact … just stick a few bucks in my Swiss accounts and it’s all yours.

“Mr Argus, Sir?”

“Yes, Little Virginia?”

“Was that sarcasm, Sir?”

“Not this time Cutie. That was bitterness. But don’t fret—just study form, then off you go and vote.”

“… for Freedom, Truth, Justice and Free Speech, Sir?”

“You got it, Kid …”

PUSH THE DAMNED

FRONTIERS

of ‘knowledge’ ever further back—

“UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK —Ancient hunter-gatherers began to systemically affect the evolution of crops up to thirty thousand years ago – around ten millennia before experts previously thought – according to new research by the University of Warwick.”

—do it often enough, with enough enthusiasm … and who knows, mainstream may yet overtake crank.

dodoOr hopefully:

at least catch up. A bit …

BUT NEVER FEAR

all is not yet lost. The facts may be wrong, surmisations and suppositions may be relegated to the bin of academia—as Snoopy says in that cartoon:

 

“One snowflake doth not a winter make”

“Mr Argus, Sir?”

“Yes, Little Ollivia?”

“If the existing facts are proven incorrect—”

“Yes, Child?”

“—does that mean the books will have to be rewritten—”

“Eek—”

“—and all those academic degrees given back?”

“… … … now you see why academia digs its heels in and entrenches, Kiddo~! Don’t fret it, God’s in her Heaven and all is well with world. Just pass the broom, please—”

I LOVE THESE …

TO ALL THE
KIDS WHO SURVIVED THE

1930’s, 40’s, and 50’s !! 

First, we survived being born to mothers who may have smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant.  They took aspirin, ate blue-cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn’t get tested for diabetes.  

Then, after that trauma, we were  put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered   with brightly coloured Lead-based paints.  

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets,  

And, when we rode our bikes we had baseball caps, not helmets, on our heads. 

 

finger-pointing-down-animation-gif copy


As infants and children we would ride in cars with no car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags … bald tires (and sometimes no brakes). 

Riding in the back of a pick- up truck on a warm day was always a special treat.  


  3 gerbils

 

We drank water from the garden hose.  

We shared one soft drink with four friends (from one bottle) and no one actually died from this.  

We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter, and bacon. We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar. And we weren’t overweight. 

WHY?  

Because we were always outside playing … that’s why!  

oink
  “My bat, my ball, my Dad’s lot … that’s why!”

We would leave home in the morning and play, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.  

No one was able to reach us all day ...  

TrollerAnd, we were OKAY.  

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of  scraps and then ride them down the hill, only to find out near the bottom that we’d forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times we learned  to solve the stopping problem.  

We did not have Play Stations, Nintendos and X-boxes. There were no video games, No 150 channels on cable,  no video movies, or DVDs,  no surround-sound or
CDs.
  

No cell phones,  

No personal computers,  

dragons17No Internet.

No chat rooms.  

WE HAD FRIENDS  

And we went outside and found them!  

TrolletteWe fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth— and there were no lawsuits from those accidents.

We would get spankings with wooden spoons, switches, ping-pong paddles, or just a bare hand, and no one would call Child Services to report abuse.  

We ate worms,
and mud pies.

And  the worms did not
live in us for ever.
  

We were given

BB guns for our 10th birthdays, 
22 rifles for our 12th, we rode horses,
made-up games with sticks and tennis balls, and although we were told it would happen—we didn’t put out too many eyes.  


We rode bikes.


Or we walked to a friend’s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, 

or we just walked in and talked to them. 

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team.  

Those who didn’t had to learn to deal with disappointment.  

Imagine that!?  

The idea of a parent
Bailing us out
If we broke the law
was unheard of … they actually sided with the law! 


These generations have
produced some of the best risk-takers,
 problem solvers, and
Inventors … ever.
  


We had freedom—
failure,
success and responsibility; 
and we learned 
to deal with it all.

If YOU are one of those born between 1925-1955

CONGRATULATIONS!

And you might now want
to share this with others who had the luck to grow up as kids before the lawyers
and government and do-gooder Snowflakes took over so much of our lives (always for our own well-being, note).

Kind of makes
you want to run through the house

YES, I KNOW~!

and it’s one thing I do know—I can be repetitive and boooooring. Sue me. Or better yet, refute me. If you can (you can’t~boom boom!).

I find religion and science equally delightful. Both claim inspiration, the one from cherry-picked astronomical numbers coupled with divinities, the other from astronomical numbers coupled with guesswork* .

So let’s reduce to basics with door Number One:

  • In the beginning etc etc God created Heaven and Earth

(You may fine tune the wording to suit yourself, but that’s the b-all and end all of it.)

Whilst Door Number Two:

  • in the beginning everything everywhere was squashed into a tiny space so small it didn’t exist and then suddenly it went BOOMFA (silently, don’t forget) and kept expanding ever since

—and to be a frank atheist here, I think door 1 is far more elegant. But—

dodo

—to this uneducated old dog’s mind they both seem to be saying the same thing. Now cast your peepers over these wee snippets—

I like it. Obviously from a Christian source and I must admit I have no idea where the scribe got that grape from. But grape it is, for now. So—

—I wish also I weren’t so cavalier with noting my sources. But to paraphrase Hamlet, something is rotten somewhere and it truly honketh.

RATIONALLY

as a former card-carrying Rationalist I can honestly say I personally can’t accept either. If I had to have me druthers I’d ruther believe in the Eternal Universe (always was/is/ever shall be; or some form of continuous creation and destruction and renewal (Siva me timbers, Jim Lad! There’s more than one way to answer a question~!)

me~!

“Still trying to put me out of a job, Argie? For shame!”

 

“Mr Argus … Sir …?”

“Don’t be shy, Little Virginia. C’mon, Cutie, biff it out—”

“Sir … in a timeless nowhere, how do we get a ‘suddenly’?”

” …  … good point, Kid. Another in favour of God/s, no? They can do anything—whereas science has to stick with its rules.”

YA WANNA MOVING

pcTARGET?

No need to sneak into North Korea looking for guy with the funny haircut who never stops manically (maniacally?) grinning. Just go into ‘science’ and look for a fact.

Any fact in fact, but a fact with a lifespan longer than ten years one human generation.

THE FACT IS

there ain’t no facts.

“The only constant,” sayeth The Sage wisely, “is change.”

And sages really know their onions (strangely enough he hasn’t been around for ages, I rather miss the cynical old sod …)

NOW

hands up, mammals (and other descended simians) who know how many planets there are in our our solar system. Trick question?

Using some of the rudiments of fire control from anyone’s navy days don’t forget to allow deflection—aim ahead of your moving target (and good luck~!)—

Brown, who played a key role in demoting Pluto from planetary status to a more lowly dwarf planet, said the discovery of a ninth planet might be good news for those who are still upset about Pluto being kicked out of the planetary club. “All those people who are mad that Pluto is no longer a planet can be thrilled to know that there is a real planet out there still to be found. Now we can go and find this planet and make the solar system have nine planets once again.”

Sourced from: CLICK HERE (or not, there’s no compulsion)

Now get out thy calculator, ephemeris, horoscope, Hamlet, and Noddy books—seek thee the answer to our question, and may the myriad gods illuminate your path with the numberless stars. Boom boom!

NORTH KOREA

dodoyada yada yada

and it’s all getting a bit boring.

THE

New Zealand Herald came up with this

A high-ranking former member of the North Korean Government says the harsh economic sanctions imposed on the country could be enough to wipe it out within 12 months.

Oh my goodness—

Ri Jong-ho, a former economic official appointed by Kim Jong-un’s father and predecessor Kim Jong-il, says the United Nations’ trade restrictions are so strong that it could cripple the isolated nation …

Yeah, sure.

I’ve lost track of how often in the last few decades sanctions have passed their ‘cripple by’ date and still the starving(?)  sanctionee isn’t crippled.

Not only not crippled—North Korea’s capabilities seem to be improving by giant leaps and bounds.

All propaganda, of course! Them Commie ratbags can no more afford nukes than I can (everyone knows that Communists can’t even feed themselves)(so there).

The answer?

Send a gunboat!

BUT WAIT

it gets better—

“Many people will die.”

—yeah. Sure they will—but not the ones some would like to die, such as these jolly smiling chaps with the overdose of cheery—

Jolly chappies.png

—who like all good politicians are very good at getting stand-ins to do their dying for them.

SO I ASK

the “high ranking former etc etc” chap — did nobody tell him that blasted commies can’t even afford bootlaces, much less nukes and missiles?

So exactly who is propagandising whom, here?

cerberus-2

What? We did send a gunboat? They did what? They laughed?

 

LIKE ANY OTHER BUSINESS*

YOU NEED

a ‘Unique Selling Point‘.

I posted before on the head of New Zealand’s very own ‘home grown’ church. And here it is again, reinforcing old statements:

  • a ‘religion’ is nothing more than wealth and power
  • there’s one born every minute (it means a sucker)

WORTH A LOOK

if only to compare this guy’s successes with the lifestyles of other ‘unique’ worshipping systems. (Yours could well be among them, no?)

There’s a wee video clip on the NZ Herald item. It’s about a minute and a half, I didn’t watch it through … but it is interesting to observe that the church is heavily into Maoris, the guy himself is Maori … and just watch his body language. (Good one, Bro~!)

So as far as selling goes, ya gotta have that USP and ya gotta study your victi  sucke  prospec audience.

“So I said to Brian, be careful and watch out for sharp nails …”

 

me~! “Bugger this Brian dude~! Nothing left for me. But you can’t fault his approach, dammit—just look at this point— Advocates of prosperity theology believe that faith, positive speech and donations to churches will increase one’s own wealth. This view has encouraged a 10 per cent tithing within the church, and the creation of an annual “First Fruits” offering in October to provide Tamaki with members gifting between $350,000 and $500,000 …” Yep. That’s it. I’m redundant. Early retirement, I guess … ”
