I LOVE IT

ALL THE MORE

for its innocence~!

Thanks GP, for pointing me to this site wherein I harvested the following absolute (and illustrative) gem—

—and well worth the perusal thereof. MCP myself? No! I have nothing against the so-called ‘gentle gender’, in fact I prefer them to be the Adjacent Sex rather than Opposite …

BOOM BOOM!

SUNDAY, ah …

selfieor not. Your call. The Godless among us roll over; the Godly are already up, washed/brushed and twitching to nip along to God’s house to face their Lord—always in a spirit of contrition (a semi-terrified self-loathing, vaguely resembling the Humility they claim).

OTHERS OF US

moiself included fill the unforgiving minute with mundane chores, one of which is to force the failing mind to revisit old readings—

—written apparently by experts in their fields. Make of ’em what you will—I have to go for a nice long walk now to blow the spiders away. I still don’t see why God in all His infinite compassion made spiders—I think it’s one of those Godly things, and the spider-priests must be coining it hand over fist fielding prayers for clemency from entangled flies.

Now try—

—and sadly Ive forgotten the sources of those gems, but that’s science for you.

I said it before, and say it again—

 

THERE AIN’T NO DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN GOD CREATING THE UNIVERSE

OUT OF NOTHING, AND

SCIENCE CREATING THE UNIVERSE

OUT OF NOTHING.

 

If I have it right, the entirety of all Creation was squelched down into a nothing so small it didn’t exist; it was not existing in a timeless nowhere anyway; yet—

—after uncountable eternities something within shifted and with a very very (to the Nth power very) loud POP! it exploded into the cosmos we have around us today.

 

ABSOLUTE EMPTINESS

PERFECT STILLNESS,

YET THEREIN SOMETHING MOVES

FOLLOWING ITS OWN COURSE

 

From Lao Tse (I think) … or some other silly old Eastern poop quietly making his buck cranking out sagacities.

If he lived today he’d have made a mint …

SOME RUGBY OBSERVATIONS

concerning

THE HAKA

Screen Shot 2018-07-26 at 15.19.14.pngwhich is very effective (but should never be confused with sportsmanship).

Think about it—both sides do their warm up and gallop out onto the field, ready for battle.

Then wot?

THEN YOUR FRIENDLY LOCAL

team has to stand politely cooling down while the Good Guys (yay!) continue warming up … by cranking themselves to a primeval pitch as their ‘Haka’ releases something atavistic in its performers.

I WROTE 

to the ‘Lions’ (UK rugby team) but no reply—I don’t think my suggestion of the Lions turning their backs and chatting (while sitting out the haka) then performing a spirited Morris Dance was at all well received—but as poofy as a Morris Dance may appear to outsiders, properly done it can be

(a) invigorating

(b) well warming, and

(c) quite intimidating.

And should the Haka be done first then the All Blacks will be the ones cooling down whilst the Lions/Wotevers are getting nicely warmed up. Sauce for the goose?

Here below, from the web, another guy’s answer, c/w original caption—

Chabal.jpg

Regardez les All Blacks avec l’oeil féroce d’un homme des cavernes.

His entry for Australia needs no explanation. (I believe he just may be a New Zealander?)

Anyway:  actions2.jpg

I still think that if the teams were given one of those leather egg things each they wouldn’t need to squabble like petulant pups but that’s economics for you—balls don’t come cheap.

BOOM BOOM!

I GOTTA COLD

honk … snorp …

arrrrrggggghhhhh—

CHOOF~!

—bugger!

Furthermore, damn and blas—

LET ME EXPLAIN

I’m a superstitious old poop.

Which means that I don’t believe in (choose one, or both) (‘neither’ is not an option)—

(a) divine retribution, or

(b) instant colds (or similar) such after brief exposure to the elements.

So I went out the night before last to try for some star snaps. Hoofed out to where I knew it would be dark and deserted, and set up my camera and tripod. But:

it was bitterly cold. Freezing, in fact. And I was out there for a couple of hours; very well wrapped in layers of warming things outside and layers of gobbled Mars bars (okay, just two) inside. And still I frozz.

I also had the feeling that on this deserted out-of-town golfing course, with no lights, pretty near total darkness and quite unable to achieve a focus on a star in any mode—

—I was not alone.

It’s a ‘sense’ I’ve never been able to explain and cannot conjure up at will, but I’ve learned never to ignore it …

… so in pitch blackness I folded my toys and hoofed quietly away.

But not before declaring myself with a quick beam of light from the lovely new powerful flashlight The Spouse bought me for my birthday and snapping an exhalation, herewith below—

Screen Shot 2018-07-26 at 12.44.36.png

—in the general direction of what I felt might be the source of my unease; and then with no pretence of sneaking briskly left.

Left briskly.

Dammit, shifted my shi—  shivers homewards.

I APPARENTLY

overdid it. Despite all the layers of feathers and things I got horribly chilled, and The Spouse wasn’t at all impressed when I arrived home as a self-propelled animated ice block. I was tossed (with no formalities~!) into a lovely hot shower and force fed hot cocoa (and sermons).

SO:

how long does it take to crank up a full blooded cobbod cod? Dode ask be, but I seeb to hav dud id in just two days

Screen Shot 2018-07-26 at 12.30.39.png—bugger …

WORDs TO THE YYYYY

~WISE.

dodoDidya geddit? Oh Gawds, I slay me sometimes … moving on, let’s contemplate YOUR future through this lens—

This is increasingly happening, not only in Australia and New Zealand – both by new immigrant groups repudiating assimilation, while arguing for their anti-democratic, cultural practices to take precedence – but also by minority groups whose radicalised extremists promote a considerably whitewashed account of their ancestors’ pre-European culture.

—make of it what you will. For myself Reality calls and I’m bimbling off to town to see if Queens Park is still there (I mostly lost interest when they closed the Pyramid as being “Earthquake prone”* and they also removed the interesting bits of regenerated Nature to put in a (SFX: insert TAH-DAAAAAAH! here please) ‘frisbee-golf’ course—

(a) nobody much ever uses it

(b) it’s handy, though (I use the targets as rubbish bins**)

Here, have thee a nice earthquake prone pyramid—

Screen Shot 2018-07-25 at 08.34.40.png

—and contemplate all possible meanings of the expressions “Oh my God” and “Bloody hell!” coupled with the ever favoured “WTF!?!”

But we are better at Rugby than any of you foreign wimps!

Bop

Do I look worried?.png

Do I look worried … ?

* New Zealanders cannot grasp that ‘prone’ for a location does nothing for its image. (To most of the world ‘prone’ means it happens a lot; here it means ‘vulnerable to’.)(But us Kiwis is the best edyercated in the weld and what we say leads youse goats so their~!)

** More of them in the park than your actual proper bins—ergo win/win, no?

 

I HAS ME DOUBTS

ABOUT OL’ ARK …

Before, I was happy to accept him as just another of them ‘eccentric’ things (anyone who likes dogs and cats can’t be too bad) but when I looked up his family tree I thought words to the effect “Uh oh … the Space Aliens’ folks could have a real ball with this imagery”

Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 17.11.28.png

An Ark family candid.

Cute.

But why is he about to eat the kid? (Don’t ask.)

The missus looks a bit of alright though, but I still worry about those ‘spacey’ skulls. Perhaps it’s one of their fashion statement things, you know, involving wet bandages and locked doors …

Now here’s a candid shot that should put your mind at rest. A bit—

Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 17.12.10.png

The Ark looks quite elegant, cool, sofis — (bugger) sohpist — (damn!):  worldly clever and actually convincingly lordly. I don’t know about wifey’s ‘Medusa’ bathing cap but to each her own, no? Obviously about to pop a quick affectionate kiss on his nozzle and to hell with all the reporters watching; I like that.

Screen Shot 2018-07-22 at 17.12.13.png

And to finish we’ll sneak a couple of quickie candids—

—Mrs Ark (I think?) catching sundrops in wineglasses (I told you they were clever, but would anyone listen? Nooooo …) and

—an obviously been in the fermented honey juice Ark being slapped about the face with some smelling-flowers (ammonium carbonate wasn’t around much at the time these candids were taken).

“Argus!”

Uh oh …

Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 22.48.36.png

“You’ll keep, Dog!”

Eek~

“Who … … me?”

Screen Shot 2018-07-23 at 22.56.56.png

 

“No offence. your Arkness; just passing through … bugger … brrrrr~”

 

GOODBYE, KIWI …

YOU’VE HAD IT

dodoso good for so long. Now you’ve blown your own foot off and are shifting target to the other—have fun~!

I PULLED THIS IN

recently, written by someone with a bigger axe to grind than I. As a devout atheist I hold Abrahamic religions in contempt as wannabe ‘con job’ monopolies; whereas being a devout Christian this lady (below) holds Islam as THE very real threat to her own semi-monopoly on superstition.

Tell me if this resonates finger down

“The undoubted risk of importing large numbers from an anti-Western culture which refuses to assimilate, and regards us as the infidel, has hitherto apparently been too sensitive to be debated. Already pressure grows for special concessions to ‘Muslim sensitivity’, such as for Muslim women to have their own exclusive times at a community swimming pool.”

—and if not, would it resonate if it were your way of life being rushed to the edge by the unthinking insouciant?

It’s from an Australian publication—it would have to be, kiwi stuff yes but I doubt that any kiwi outlet would get away with it. Well worth reading in full—I love the bit about how animals for the pot must face Mecca to have their throats cut by a practising Muslim (which guarantees “jobs for the boys”, no?).

So question of the day, think carefully:

Who do YOU think will win in the end—

(a)  Chinese expansion, or

(b)  the Islamic invasions?

Don’t ask me—by the grace of God I shan’t be here when it happens. And I at least don’t have descendants—I feel for those who do; but hey, it’s a Democracy* and you get what you vote for, no?

Big G, bigger

“Don’t fret Argus—I’ll always be right here, watching over you.”

Oh …

gast me flabbers!

… wow~!
