Devilgate Drive

A road in Denham Springs, Louisiana, USA, was the location of a macabre event in August 2016, when a local flood hit the area.

Floaters ..... Of The Worst Kind

17 inches of rain hit the area in just 24 hours, killing four people and causing over 7,000 people to be evacuated in the Baton Rouge area of the state, where a state of emergency was declared.

Religion Rules ... Okay

There are only two countries in the world that actually ban the teaching of the theory of evolution to children  ..... until recently there was only one, Saudi Arabia, where its totally banned and only one Saudi 12th-grade textbook mentions evolution by name. It claims that Charles Darwin has "...denied Allah's creation of humanity" .....

RIP Evolutionary Theory In Turkey And Saudi Arabia ......

.... but now, the increasingly Islamic state of Turkey, has joined it in banning the theory being taught in schools.

Silly Sausages, Road Hogs and Other Shorts

Melania Trump has had a pork sausage created, and named in her honour in her native Slovakia .... nothing more to be said really.

A truck crashed, bursting into flames.outside Dallas on Thursday the 29th of July. Fortunately its cargo, consisting of nearly 200 pigs, took their chances and ran out onto the highway, and thus avoided becoming bacon. It took the highway maintenance workers several hours to round them all up .... they had to then spray them with a water hose to keep them cool until they could be persuaded to get on another transporter.

Road Hogs Cause May-Ham Across The Globe .....

The Texas rush-hour was reduced to total chaos but hog lives were saved .... strangely I recall that something similar to this road hog activity, happened in Hampshire in England in June this year, when Traffic on the M27 motorway in Hampshire, was brought into to a standstill by two runaway pigs from a local farm, causing may-ham to the rush hour traffic.

The World of PC Madness

The world of PC madness has seemingly no bounds for its scope .... take the latest craze of various 'black' pressure groups being formed e.g. Black Lives Matter (UK) .... many of which seem to be the idea of a bunch of rather pampered left wing students, even if they have attracted some less well off black activists.

BLM Thugs Dressed For Aggro ..... Why They Are Not Arrested Is Beyond Me.

Their only aim is seemingly to pick up on supposed issues, and then demand that black people be given more help to be equal in those areas .... this despite the fact that many things are now geared in their favour on the jobs front. But still they feel the need to demand that society bends over even more for them.

Unlucky For Some

A group of Russians from Saint Petersburg, must have thought their luck was in when they found around a billion roubles in an abandoned mine ..... but sadly for the group it was completely worthless, because it was all in old Soviet money.

One Billion Soviet Roubles .... Worthless Now

The group publish a blog on abandoned sites across Russia, came across the money in an old missile silo near Moscow, buried in Russia's Vladimir region, after the collapse of the Soviet Union. 

One Is A Lonely Number

I was looking around the pub last weekend and suddenly realised that I was stood alone, and that this had become my normal state of socialising for some considerable time.

One Is A Lonely Number .... But More Common These Days?

It was a bit of a shock to realise that I had slowly become a bit of a 'Billy'  (aka 'Billy No Mates'), over the years, and now I had effectively become isolated from my friends and distant family.

Seditious Sedition

India generally gets better press in the West and better treatment from this blog, than its mad dog neighbour Pakistan.

India's Sedition Laws Are Misused Again ....

But there are times when it proves to be just as ridiculous as its erstwhile competitor ... Pakistan has long since ceased to compete with India, except it seems in stupidity.

The Right To Live Anywhere?

After the fire at Grefnell Tower a lot of us quite rightly felt sympathy for the survivors.

Grefnell Tower Disaster ....

However it appears that many of the residents were in fact people who had chosen the most expensive and desirable post code in the UK, in which to declare themselves 'homeless' in the first place. They were not native born and bred in the borough, so therefore had deliberately chosen their place of homelessness.

Destroyed By Hollywood

While half watching a very bad movie on the Horror Channel in which Las vegas took a beating from some mystical sword or something .....

The White House Regularly Gets It In The neck ....

This prompted me to think about how Hollywood has destroyed many a city and many of them many times.

Black Magic Muti

Bald men in Mozambique appear to be the targets of ritual attacks, following the recent killing of three bald men for what is thought to be their body parts.

All Bald African Men At Risk ......

Two suspects have been arrested in the central district of Milange, where the killings occurred. Police have said that the risk continues. "The belief is that the head of a bald man contains gold," said a police commander in Mozambique's central Zambezia province.

Kentucky Fried Kapitalism

When Karl Marx talked about the "contradictions of capitalism", which he felt would one day bring the whole rotten system down in favour of a communist system; He believed that this 'economic truth', was also a historical imperative, which couldn't be denied. He no doubt died believing that, but as many others thought at the time, and has been proved right since, it’s the adaptability of capitalism and capitalists, that has proved the stronger of the two systems.

Capitalism after all, is the system of commerce that the human race has naturally adopted, whether it be the early forms of barter and trade, where supply and demand set the values of exchanges e.g. 4 duck eggs for one deer antler etc, right through to the current more sophisticated models, with stocks and shares.

Kentucky Fried Kapitalism Comes To China

In reality, communism was nothing more than an intellectual exercise (like any other socialist 'utopian' systems), that should never have left academia. The millions who have died or suffered under its tyranny are proof of that .... it’s a system that simply has no root in reality, its 'laws' are unreal, based as they are, on a supposition of the human race sharing common aims and goals, when in reality 'greed' and 'sloth' (to over simplify it a lot), are major factors in all human intercourse and endeavour.

No Oil On Troubled Waters

I don't care about Qatar's spat with its neighbours about who supports terrorists. They are all doing it. Saudi Arabia, the chief complainant about Qatar, has long supported the Taliban and other hard-line Salafists and Wahabi radical groups.

Hunting With Falcons A Long Tradition ....
After all, the 9/11 attackers were Saudis, and so was the planner ..... a fact which has been down played far too often.

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

This image from the Canadian NATO representatives (without the flags which I added for clarity), appeared on Social Media, after Russian involvement in the 'civil war' in the Ukraine was confirmed.

Lost In The Ukraine .... Russian Soldiers Need Help.

Apparently there is a new phenomena of social media 'trolling' between nation states embassies, and even via non government websites such as newspapers  ....

Court In A Dilemma

Someone called Sam Stosur (who I have never heard of before), says that some female players may refuse to play on the Margaret Court Arena at next year's Australian female tennis Open.

An Arena Named After Aussie Great Margaret Court

The reason for this is that it's named after a great Australian female tennis champion called Margaret Court (who I had heard of), who has upset the LGBT community. Court won 24 Grand Slam singles tennis championships.

Skid Row LA

The term Skid Row (or Skid Road), originally referred to the path along which timber workers skidded logs, and dates back to the 17th century. When a logger was fired he was "sent down the skid road," and its in the timber region of the pacific Northwest USA that the term also took on its current meaning of the domain of the 'down and outs'.

Shanty Town LA

Los Angeles County (pop 9,818,605 2016), incorporates the city of Los Angeles, and is home to more than one-quarter of California residents. Los Angeles was recently declared 'a city of shanties', when figures showed that there were 44,359 homeless people in Los Angeles County, and 25,686 in the city itself. Some estimates say that more than two-thirds of homeless people are on the streets with no shelter at all, because the weather / climate allows this.

Enough is Enough

Enough is Enough .... Or so the UK Prime Minister has said. But what is enough? Instead of bemoaning the collapse of our will to really address the Islam issues, what could we do?

What's Not To Like About A Religion That Respects Our Values .....

Well lets see:

1. Make terrorism convictions a minimum of 20 years, even if it just 'supporting' terrorism. What is the point of a five year sentence for planning an attack but not succeeding? They are back out on our streets 4 years later, planning again. We have to take them out of the game for a generation.

Vox Populi

Well the people have spoken, and once again plunged the UK into a political crisis. Thus proving again the old Churchill political adage that 'democracy is the worst of all governments except for all the others.' It also shows what divided country we are these days, Brexit, Devolution, Left and Right ... everywhere you look we are a nation divided.

Vox Populi or The Start Of A Revolution In Our System?

Our system of first past the post relies on there being a clear winner, and so to be facing a second coalition or a minority government inside 2 years from the formation of the last one, is something of a shock to our way of getting governments.

Dino Dreams Shattered

There can hardly be one of us (well from the male half of the population), who don't harbour a secret dream about the Jurassic park being true ... that mosquito's trapped in amber will allow us to reconstitute DNA strands of the mighty beasts of yesteryear ... whether that's the Woolly Mammoth or the Tyrannosaurus Rex .... but so far its not happened.

Mammoth Reconstruction Is Still A Dream

Lardy World

2014 was a world fat point ....

.... It was the moment when the number of fat arses in the world reached a new high was reported that global obesity rates among men went up from 3.2% in 1975 to 10.8%, while among women they rose from 6.4 % to 14.9% over that same period.

Fatty World Leaders Are Not Uncommon These Days
..... the number of obese people worldwide had risen from 105 million in 1975 to 641 million in 2014.

Playing The Race Card Too Often

If there is one thing guaranteed to raise the hackles of non-black people, it’s whenever a brown or black person raises the 'race card', at any setback in their lives. It always signifies the appearance of their hands out asking for something, and that other people will have to pay that something to stop the bleating.

So whenever the odd black person gets sacked from work (and that happens far more rarely than it might be appropriate), its often not the legitimate reasons given by employers that's accepted. Such as maybe if the employer is citing their laziness, criminality, inability to do the job, or poor attitude to authority that’s a problem (just as it would be for many others including white people), it’s often claimed by them that's its in fact purely because of the colour of their skin, rather than any failings on their part that they are being sacked.

Playing The Race Card Is Now A Well Practised Tactic ...

Blackwashing History

Writing whites from their own history seems to be a full time profession at some centres of education. For instance Harvard University's "presidential task force on inclusion and belonging" has decreed that part of the lyrics of the 1830's university song "Fair Harvard" are racist, well if nor actually racist, then inappropriate for these PC times. So to that end, the task force, led by black academic Danielle Allen, has launched a competition to find a replacement for the song's ending, which praises the university's puritan heritage: "Be the herald of Light, and the bearer of Love, Till the stock of the Puritans die."

Harvard's Presidential Task Force On Inclusion And Belonging ....

Her justification is the usual crappola that the symbols and motto's of the university had to be appropriate for everyone "regardless of background, identity, religious affiliation or viewpoint". Therefore in her eyes the idea that "the commitment to truth, and to being the bearer of its light, is the special province of those of puritan stock. This is false". Of course this wasn't the first PC nibble at the song, which was changed in 1998, with a reference to "sons" being changed to something more gender neutral ... perhaps to something 'transgender neutral'?
