Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

Back in May, yer very ‘eavy, very ‘umble servant offered up a few thoughts about a thot who arrived on the shores of PommieBastardLande from Banderastan, and proceeded to break up a family in the space of just 10 days. This turned into an evolving soap...

Chaps, do you remember that whole weird series of episodes of what we might call a White Trash Soap Opera, suitably titled Yorkshire Dales or some such, involving a father-of-two who took in a Ukrainian refugee and then ended up dumping his not-wife’s ass in...

The twenty-one year emergency

You all know what today is. You all remember where you were, 21 years ago today. Think about that span of time carefully. If your child was born in that year, that same child would already have passed the ages of maturity for driving, voting, and drinking in the...

If you’ve never come across one Sam Vaknin before, I assure you, it is worth your time to go and look him up. He is an extraordinarily brilliant man – his IQ is apparently somewhere around 180 (or so he says). He did a PhD thesis about – and I wish I...

The good people over at Visual Capitalist recently released a big-ass graphic that has been making the rounds of late, to mark the fact that the global economy hit US$100 TRILLION in terms of total annual output. This is an amazing feat and a great milestone, to be...

Warm fuzzies

A rather piquant video has been making the rounds on teh innarwebz, showing a Federal BATFE agent being arrested and tased by local police in the USA for, basically, being a colossal arse. The whole clip is well worth enjoying in full, simply to get a feeling for the...

“We gotta eject, Mav!!!”

Gentlemen, have any of you ever tried ground turducken? This is a particularly weird kind of “pseudo-roast” that comes from stuffing a deboned chicken into a deboned duck into a deboned turkey. Apparently, this odd concoction is popular in certain parts of...
