Takin’ a look around.

Posted on

I get told occasionally that I’m too opinionated… self absorbed, egotistical, overly critical, have overly high expectations of others…

And this mainly comes from people I consider friends.

But then I look around… especially in looking at some of the blogs that randomly come across my browser when taking a quick peek at what else is being written by bloggers… and I realise I have a long way to go in taking out any titles in those areas.

And it gets me thinking; how can you be yourself, yet leave others with an accurate view of who you really are? Can you? Read the rest of this entry »

Here’s to you, Mrs Robinson…

There was an interesting article in the paper recently about older women hooking up with younger guys.

The reasons were many and varied, but essentially it shows a growing trend for post-divorce and 30’s plus women that are secure in career and home finding younger men as more compatible.

And since older men historically have gone after younger women… you can see now how the balance is being redressed, and how now the tables are being turned… and older men are feeling threatened. Read the rest of this entry »

Her personality is the best contraceptive ever developed.

I’m going to start this by saying that this is not a sexist rant. So, if you’ve arrived here looking for one courtesy of Google, then turn around and don’t let the door hit yer ass on the way out.

Now… grab yourself a snack and a cold drink…

There’s a lot wrong in this world… so much so that fixing any of it can leave even the most tenacious of us overwhelmed by the task. Take a look at the problems that governments face on a daily basis and it’s any wonder that problems get fixed at all.

And one of the big reasons as to why these long term problems get worse and worse is the education of our nation’s children. The shaping of future generations by media, culture, society and education is, in part, to blame for the problems caused by delinquency and subsequent generations of people more and more apathetic than the ones that preceded them.

And so it’s with this in mind that I’d like to tell you about someone I recently met, and how the following quote is so ubelievably true: Sport doesn’t build character, it reveals it. Read the rest of this entry »

Is Australia on the brink of revolution?

Posted on

How complacent have we become?

Have Australians been so swayed by tax cuts, baby bonuses, first home buyer grants and all the trappings of economic prosperity that we have become blind to the fact that we are led by a corrupt government?

Think for a second… if there was a smell associated with everything our politicians said, would we be heaving, gasping and reaching for the air freshener every other minute?

It makes sense, really, since the output of a politicians mouth matches that of their asses… Read the rest of this entry »

What would you surrender for bliss?

Posted on

Imagine you’ve met a person you think is a compatible life partner…

This person takes your breath away. The mere thought of them gets your heart racing. Their touch is electric. You find yourself thinking of nothing but them, when you’ll see them next, when you’ll talk to them next. They push all your buttons, flip all your switches, light all your fires.

So, what would you give up to be with that person?

If you honestly say anything other than ‘Nothing’… don’t bother reading on, because this will only piss you off. Read the rest of this entry »

The future isn’t what it used to be.

Ever since the cloning of Dolly the Sheep, people have talked about the why’s, wherefore’s and reasons against cloning of any type.

It’s even made it’s way into Hollywood.  Paranoia and fears of the darker side of cloning have been addressed in films like “The 6th Day” and “The Island”.

So, what is the reality, how likely is it to see in our lifetime and will be soon be filled with a world full of people who all look the same? Is the day approaching that when someone I annoy tells me to go f**k myself, that I can walk into a cloning shop, order a duplicate, and go do just that? Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t f**k with a leprechaun…

Posted on

Some people take themselves too seriously, and luckily, I work with people who know how to deal with those kind of people.

So, in honour of those people, I present the solution to office stupidity… the armed leprechaun.

Ah… t’be sure!
