oh … reeelly? skull & bones

I sampled this wee webbie—

—and although not often given to expletives, this has to be outstanding as one of the most very #@*&%@$!!! worstest ever sites I’ve regretfully visited.


do happen to go there (don’t~!) you may be inspired enough to use it as a “How NOT to”; and may all your Gods forgive you for ignoring my warning …





skull & bonesSomewhere, somehow, I fluffed my post and lost it. But worse, in trying to recover my lost post I hit one key several too often and managed to switch myself from my faithful old posting format to the horrible new horrible ‘progressive’ horrible format. Not good … so?

So be careful out there, lest thee be likewise smote by herds of progressives (most often folks trying to impress bosses)(or otherwise keep their jobs …

“Ve haff vays of making you advance, verdammit,—

—effen if you do not vishing to do so in the slightest!”

I really really really wish I’d never goofed—and I’m sure the captain of the Titanic felt the same. (Wishing didn’t do him no good neither …)

But for some I’m happy to take a punt—

Having been almost bulletproof (off the radar) for years we had our phone ring just the other night, and since Spouse was busy I took it—

—strange unknown voice, thinking he may have the wrong number and “please,what number did I call?”

… dammit … I could have had a ball with this but had promised Spouse I wouldn’t if ever it came up. So almost reflexively I hung up, hoping for a replay.

It didn’t.


we were told (and this years ago, long before all these ‘web’ things were even dreams) that if any calls were at all suss to politely request the caller’s name and number— “And I’ll call you back just as soon as I can~!”


who kept a referee’s whistle (the two-tone type with a pea in it) by her phone. She explained it was for annoyance callers. In the midst of a call at a later date I remembered this and asked if she’d like to test her systems—happy to do so, she said, and promptly did so … I became an instant Christian, so to speak. Sheesh!


is that we miss out on so much. You can real fun with idiots … or telemarketers. (They don’t do it much these days but I managed to keep one talking for more than twenty minutes once, before he finally twigged; got quite ratty before he hung up.)

SCARCE REMEMBERED devil-29973__340 copy

is of no help at all sometimes.

But for those of us with minds I draw your attention to this offering—

—and should you go there … please spread the good news.

Oh … more? Okaaaaayy—

This might make your head spin — officials of the Roman Catholic Church are offering a week-long course in exorcism, and dozens of Catholic priests have flocked to Rome to partake of the Holy See’s demon-banishing tips and strategies.

Titled Exorcism and Prayer of Liberation, the course is now in its 13th year, and is presented at The Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum, a Catholic educational institution … An estimated 200 people — lay Catholics as well as priests — attended, Reuters reported.

From April 16 to 21, the would-be exorcists learn about issues they might encounter, including recognizing the devil, differentiating between possession and mental disorders, and legal protections for exorcists, according to a course outline. [Exorcism: Facts and Fiction About Demonic Possession]

if Satan didn’t exist it would be necessary to invent Him, no?

     “Would too~!”                                                                                 “Would not!”

         “Would not~!”                                                                                 “Would too!”

AND from someone who can advise (being me):   … rather than spend a fortune on the Vatican’s professional courses, all you need to stop the Devil in His tracks is salt from the local shop. Sprinkle salt on His tail and He’s naffed (sea salt works best).


on Satanic self-defence just send me a a signed blank cheque and by return post I’ll send you—in one compact package—all the equipment you’ll need to protect your home and loved ones from the entire unholy spooktrum from Apparitions to Zombies. (First twenty responders, I’ll even throw in a can of Mormon Repellent, free.)

Go here  finger down     to see their course …

“Trust me—I’m with Him!”




Screen Shot 2018-03-01 at 10.48.46I have your undivided attention …

Yes. Money is important. Very. But I’m not selling any, or trying to separate you from yours. This is not a spam site, this is pure babble (and don’t you forget it). You are quite safe.


by a young thug who not long after sorted himself out and went on to very much greater things, that—

“Money is survival—

—when you run out of money you run out of survival!”


—he was absolutely right.

But let’s not get into unwinnable discussions here, just read on … nod sagely … in agreement … then cheerfully dismiss the wisdoms in the referenced source and get on with life.

“When it comes to day-to-day lessons, the best way to teach your kids the value of a dollar is to … use cash with your kids. When my daughter was 13, she wanted to go shopping with friends for back-to-school clothes. The other parents gave their girls a credit or debit card and imposed a spending limit. Me? I embarrassed my daughter by handing her $50…in cash. The reason: I knew that when she got to the checkout line with more than $50 worth of merchandise, she’d have to make hard choices and put something back.”

Or not …

I wish I’d had the sense when I was young.

No excuses, I was an idealist who lacked worldly vision—more the fool me.







and it’s good to see that our devout Abrahamic friends understand this point and know enough to get in first with the young—

As much as I suggest to the rational that they might achieve more by educating the young … my seeds fall upon stoney ground, but these Christians at least have a handle on reality. (Well, on the bits that matter most, at least.)




and old notions. 3 sages


do, not by what they say bleat. So? There’s yet fortunes to be made (Al Gore did pretty well out of it) from AGW. But I still wonder … hold that thought; here’s today’s quote—

At some point, it turns out, deforestation, drought, and other forest-disturbing factors tipped the scales, making tropical forests a net producer of carbon rather than a sink, according to a new study published today (Sept. 28) in the journal Science. Each year, instead of absorbing carbon, these degraded forests are a source of more carbon (roughly 425 teragrams of carbon per year) than an entire year’s worth of US transportation emissions.

—use it wisely. As for my thought:

how much would it contribute to the albedo of Mother Earth if everyone responsible for a roof … painted said roof white?

If nothing else at least by so doing he’d be declaring his own personal sincerity and making a political statement, no?

What about white roads, hmmmm? And airports? Ship decks? Hell, in the seventies they were so worried about Global Cooling that they seriously suggested sprinkling soot all over the arctic ice caps. You know, suck in much needed heat rather than bang it back out into space, wasted.


if you claim to be concerned about Global Warming, but your roof isn’t solar reflective … thou speaketh with forked tongue. For shame, Sir or Madam~!

have yourself a nice cow. Look, admire, then do your bit for the planet by getting out there and shooting as many as you can (before being visited by nice inquisitive men)—the damned things produce Greenhouses gases like you wouldn’t believe~! Otherwise the least you can do is drink your coffee black (and stop gobbling all them ice-creams) …

Need any more advice? I’ll pop ’round soon …


WTF Dept

dodo copy… and the beat goes on, the beat goes onnnnnnn ..

Others wished infertility …  “I hope your wife can’t have kids, that’ll be god’s way of punishing you”.

Well now. What disastrous catastrophic Earth-shattering sin had this couple committed, to attract such opprobrium from the nice punters?

Phillips and his wife had not planned to make a political statement with their …. …… decision.

“My wife has no … and  …


note that God had to come into it somewhere. But the possessing of a narrow mind and the requisite accompanying bully-thug instinct is a state not limited entirely to Christian religious nuts. Apparently MCP nuts too.

In fact any pea-brained nut can do it …

But wait, buy now and you get this too—

Why would these men — and yes all the abusive messages sent to Phillips were written by men* — take time out of their day … abusing someone they don’t know for doing something that doesn’t affect them?

I think it depends really on how you define ‘men’ … no?

(Hah! I was hoping to be able to use this image again~!)

Now this1-animated-arrow-up.gif folks, could be called a real nut-cracker. As for the couple concerned my advice is just get on with your lives … but watch out for closed minds. Yeuch …

it was put me on to this dude. Okay, he’s got a bit of a speech impediment* and starey eyes and I can’t make out what the badge is; but listen to what he’s saying.

After all, where’d we be without extra taxes, huh? Sign up now and you get to save the planet—double all taxes and you invest in saving it for years to come.

And now we are left (in New Zealand) with plakky baggies going out of style in our supermarkets. Bugger … we’ll have to carry our goodies home in something else; hopefully non-plastics, renewable, washable, unrustable, non-alumniumic, reusable—and I mean better than cupped hands. Suggestions?**
