THE THOUGHTS OF CHAIRMAN BOB!
"I wish I was the sort of person my dogs think I am!"
I would never deliberately or knowingly try to offend anyone, but at the same time
I won't bow to the censorship of God-botherers, Wowsers or the politically correct!
For my overseas readers, a "Wowser" is an Australian term for the boorish, humorless,
prudish and pious, hypocrites who are offended by just about everything and
they usually have a few skeletons rattling about in their closets as well!
So be warned dear reader!
Aamongst my musings, babblings and "pearls of wisdom", there are a few off-colour jokes
and stories that have been sent in and a few from my own very warped sense of humor.
So if you are likely to take offence at the odd Blue joke or my political and religious musings and
feel compelled to send me outraged e-mails, TOUGH SHIT you best not read on, for every one else, enjoy!

The first news outlet that reports events as accurately, dispassionately and objectively
apolitically as possible without fear or favor, without editorializing or using leading commentary, will be on a gold mine, because the increase of trust and states from the public derived from "integrity" will far outstrip the desire to skew or manipulate public opinion.
At present none have been smart enough to have cottoned onto this simple fact!
They have the potential to turn things around only IF they stop playing politics.

A tale of woe!
.22 short rapid fire pistols and why are they worth collecting.
The story goes a little like this.
The Olympic shooting federation changed the rapid fire rules so that only un-ported guns in
.22lr can be used in the "Olympic course of fire, so, all the pistols we had for this match
(some worth $2000+) became obsolete and virtually valueless over night!
And then our Savior arrived!
The Australian gun owners friend!
Our (ex) beloved and wise leader, Mr John Winston Howard!
In his noble crusade to spread peace and love and make us all just a little safer;
Glorious leader commanded that a bounty be placed upon the heads of the most
evil guns that were hiding within our midst, skulking on every street corner and
lurking down every dark ally; and that for the good of the nation they
should be given up for righteous execution!
However, the modest Hammerli, Unique, Hi-Standard and all their cousins such as
FAS and Walther to name but a few were exempt from this pogrom,
being good little guns that wouldn't dream of hurting anyone!
But alas, they were betrayed by the very masters who had once loved them!
And so, it came to pass that most were sent forth to the fiery pit for a mere hand full of silver!
Ohhhh WOE! SHAME! THE HORROR!
And that's why it's a collectors item!
Here ends the lesson!
There is nothing wrong with having

The greatest threat to free speech, progress, education, humanity and civilization are the
proponents and champions of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS!
There is nothing progressive or even good about political correctness, even the radical Islamist is nowhere near as dangerous or as destructive; and the best way to defeat these villains is to have the courage to ignore them; or to simply tell them to FUCK OFF!
The Greens are the personification of political correctness in every way and their dogma will always take precedents over honesty, fairness, freedom and even reality and they have always passionately believe themselves to be our intellectual and morel superiors on every level and on every subject.
The Greens, like other "Social Justice Warriors" espouse and demand freedom of speech,
just as long as it's only their voice that is heard and will shout down all others, and like all other narcissistic zealots, even when they are wrong, when they are proven wrong and
even if they know in their own hearts they are wrong, they will always rabidly claim to be in
the right no matter what, and unlike other political party's that may sometimes realize and admit
they have made mistakes, the Greens seldom if ever admit to errors of judgment as they
are in their own eyes, infallible no matter what...
If the Greens are ever granted real power, they will prove themselves to
be the most high handed, vile and dictatorial of fascists and the enemy of freedom and democracy!

"IT IS SO!"
The main problem with religion and religious thinking and
teaching is that its firmly set in 3000+ years of dogmatic stone...
"IT IS SO!"
Thunders the Church the Mosque and Temple and God will
damn you (if you use the intellect that God apparently gave you in the first place) to
eternal hell fire if you dare question it!
Science and scientific thinking reasons,
"It is so, until proven otherwise, so please keep thinking, exploring,
theorizing and above all, questioning and challenging what is known and what is not known..."
One intellectually imprisons the other intellectually liberates.
One encourages freedom to explore the unknown, while the other claims it has all the answers and if you begin to doubt and challenge the established dogma and
start asking difficult questions you will be punished for all eternity!
"IT IS SO!" may have been just fine and dandy 3000+ or even 30 years
ago but not now, the world is at last undergoing another reformation.
"IT IS SO!" Has had it's day and we should no longer put our trust
in the teachings of 3000 year old, goat herders!
Think on this.

"It's a conspiracy I tells ya!"
Just a thought.
When you think about it, if someone really knows, "The Truth" about the Kennedy assassination, 9/11, Port Arthur, Sandy hook, Pulse nightclub shootings AIDS and the Zika virus etc (or any other conspiracy theories/fantasies out there) then wouldn't you think that the real people behind the conspiracy would do something about it?
I mean if the bad guys have no qualms about murdering 3000+ people on 9/11 it shouldn't bother them in the slightest to pay of some
to be silent or put a couple more on the missing list that might be in the position to expose them and their evil plans now would it.
Unless of course...
Those exposing "The Truth" are actually part of the conspiracy, putting out false and/or ludicrous information just to
confuse and mislead the "sheeple..."
Mmmmmmmmm, Now there's a conspiracy!
I worked many years in media and conspiracies defiantly exist and we probably hear of only a tiny fraction of the serious criminal, political and business wrong doings, cover ups and criminality both large and small that goes on behind the scenes every day, some of witch can have a detrimental effect on people and society... However not EVERY conspiracy is real and in this essay I'm mainly referring to the promotion of the more dramatic, bigoted, irrational and outlandish conspiracy theory's and fantasy's found on the internet such as; Pizza-gate, faked moon landings, flat earth, word domination by aliens, Jews, Catholics, Freemasons the Illuminati etc, earthquakes and epidemics caused by the CIA, KGB, MOSSAD, NSA, FBI, MI5, NASA etc and other "Evil Overlords" of one
type or another.
Ok, lets get down to business.
In a nutshell people will all to readily believe and defend all manner of untruths as hard fact no matter what, as long if it coincides
with their own beliefs, dogma or bigotry; and even with just a little bit of investigation or critical thinking on their part would prove
the story to be untrue or a fabrication or utter nonsense, "confirmation bias" will almost always win out over common sense and
the real truth and this is the stock in trade of the conspiracy theorist...
Confirmation bias, is the tendency to search for, interpret, favor, and recall information in a way that confirms one's preexisting beliefs or hypotheses, while giving disproportionately less consideration to alternative possibilities, readily verifiable facts or
even basic common sense and reality; and the worst examples of this is when someone in their heart of hearts knows something
is a fabrication but still promotes it as absolute truth.
Now to begin with there seems to be about seven main species of conspiracy theorist/fantasist who bombard the media, police or government departments as well as infest internet websites and forums.
1: The "Professional" who cynically jumps on any bandwagon or issue producing webcasts, books and videos etc for fame and
fortune and seeks to profit from others ignorance, gullibility, paranoia, bigotry or fear.
2: The unmediated, unsupervised, schizophrenic or other mental patient with access to a PC and depending on how
unmediated and unsupervised they are will depend on how much these people can produce and it can be a lot!
They mostly rant incoherently and often a great length, but some can sight or making up all sorts of very well thought out
and passable pseudoscientific, political, economic and/or biblical theory's along the way and some can be quite brilliant,
lucid and insightful in their own mad sought of way...
3: The tinfoil hat wearing paranoid narcissist who tirelessly investigates, "joins the dots" and "uncovers the truth" and reveals the
"false flags" etc behind everything and can find a conspiracy in a bowl of roses in the same way a religious nut can see the face of Christ in a half eaten meat pie and similar to the unmediated and unsupervised schizophrenic mentioned earlier, can produce vast amounts of product depending on how motivated they are.
4: The "Childish bigot" and "Intellectual bigot" These people
basically just want any excuse to blame and/or attack, Jews, Catholics, Muslims,
Blacks, Asians, Gays etc, etc etc for no other reason other than they hate them
they are the object of their prejudice no
matter what the subject or incident.
The "Intellectual bigot." (An Oxymoron if there ever was one!) Though the very foundations and core belefes are often fundamentally
and obviously flawed to most people, the Philosopher Bigot will still have very well thought out and cleverly worded arguments sighting historical, religious or political instances (tenuous and/or selective at best) to give substance to their claims that will sometimes require
a little research to debunk if you have the time or inclination to do so. Their lack of integrity will even go as far as to have them fabricate stories (Conspiracy fantasies) in an attempt to influence others into their way of thinking.
The "Childish bigot" is usually not even a real theorist, just an lout who is often far too lazy, ignorant and uneducated to do any real investigation for themselves (as it will no doubt disprove their prejudice) so they take the quick easy option of ignoring any real facts
and just regurgitate and plagiarize the same old drivel the Intellectual bigot and others of a like mind come up with and as could be imagined both tend to be deeply narcissistic and aggressively arrogant.
In short bigots are usually little more than predictable one-trick ponies, obnoxious oafs or pseudointellectual frauds lacking even basic common sense and empathy and both are of course, immature moral pygmies.
5: The poor lonely immature attention seeking basement warrior who has nothing better to do and craves any sort human contact
and/or validation for their sad and unfulfilled life.
6: The "Opportunist/Hobbyist" This guy is usually not a genuine conspiracy theorist but an internet troll and mischief maker who
just likes to make multiple posts on multiple websites using their multiple accounts within an hour or two of an event happening
purely for shits and giggles.
7: The conspiracy "Enthusiast."
A bit or all of the above I'm afraid and like most of the above will have numerous accounts
and personas all over the net and will blindly believe and slavishly disseminate, embellish and vigorously defend everything
that comes their way no matter what!
The internet is not only the perfect habitat for confirmation bias but it's also the natural home of the all encompassing,
great sweeping statement!
"All Moslems" are terrorists, "ALL Catholic priests" are pedophiles, "ALL Jews" control "ALL" the worlds media and "ALL" the worlds financial institutions etc, etc etc!
Of course to criticize or point out any short comings or superficiality of statements made in forums or to ask for solid proof
of claims made is a total waste of time; The fact is the loonie, true believer and bigot are incapable of accepting anything
other than what validates their belefes and the Trolls simply never want to loose face, docent care or is only seeking attention
in the first place.
Though the conspiracy theorist's/fantasist's/enthusiasts core belefes are often inherently flawed, some, that are a little more intelligent, imaginative and cunning will have well thought out replies to give substance to their claims and all will vigorously label you as a willingly ignorant member of the "Sheeple" or a "Shill" of a villainous government, religion or big business by these brave, intellectually superior and all knowing guardians and revellers of "The Truth" who will also claim to be completely unbiased, open minded critical thinkers; this is usually stated in an attempt to somehow justify or excuse their claims and all have a fondness for Memes,
the internet equivalent of poking your tongue out and blowing a raspberry and just about as articulate, it is the only wordplay and
retort available to the immature, dullard and illiterate that they are capable of.
Rewriting history to suit an individuals prejudice or social objectives is a perfect example of confirmation bias and a fairly modern phenomena; a well worn phrase often used by neo-Nazis, Holocaust deniers, WW2 revisionists and Hitler/Starlin/Mao etc fans and apologists and more recently social justice warriors is that, "history is written by the victors." Yes agreed, to an extent, but the
fact that events are often reported and corroborated by numerous different sources and first hand whiteness of those present
from both sides at the time seems to escape our devout theorist and bigot...
Rewriting history without solid scholarly peer-reviewed evidence must be challenged at every turn!
I would truly love to see some of these conspiracy, bigoted, false and Troll news merchants be made to justify their claims or face heavy penalty's for their mischief, this would sift the wheat from the chaff very quickly, on the other hand the genuine whistle blower must be protected at all costs.
On a side note I feel that with the challenging and steady decline of religious belief (not altogether a bad thing) in the world and the ridiculous war on science that has emerged in recent years not to mention and the notion that almost all history has been tainted and the "Truth" altered or obliterated in some way has spawned an almost pathological adherence to one conspiracy theory/fantasy or another and is rapidly becoming a new religion in itself with it's own clergy, holy books, scholarly works and usually containing just as much irrational intolerance, dogma, stupidity and bigotry as any faith you care to name.
The other major problem with the devout seeker of "The Truth" is that if they cant find what they are looking for will all to often just make up "facts" to embellish and/or fit in with their conspiracy narrative and can sometimes even produce flashy high quality (and not so high quality) PC documentary's and publications etc to enhance the veracity of their false claims and in very short order these "conspiracy fantasy's" will rapidly become "The Truth" and so believed and doggedly defend as such.
A perfect example of a conspiracy fantasy persistently defended as fact is the notorious anti-Semitic hoax, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, first exposed and debunked as a heavily plagiarized literary fraud as early as 1921. (Of course any good conspiracy theorist/bigot will readily claim Jews control ALL media and therefore ALL history and seem to be ALL endowed with the same mysterious ability (Hive brain?) that enables them ALL to plot together to be involved in the same evil plans ALL at the same time throughout ALL of history; Remarkable, surly you would think they would have taken over by now?!)
You can also throw in for good measure, the anti-vaccination movement, NASAs faked the Moon landing the Kennedy assassination (there are well over 30 theory's and has become an industry in itself) Area 51, Roswell and UFOs, Elvis faked his own death, Paul McCartney is actually dead, all the works of Shakespeare were not written by Shakespeare and many many others...
The fun just never stops and it's all one big conspiracy of stupidity for the most part!
Though there are defiantly shills (some paid some not) who try to spin, shape and skew public opinion in the media, sometimes, just sometimes, things actually happened precisely in the way they were reported by the mane stream, hard to believe I know (particularly when they constantly embellish, hype and spin the truth in their eternal quest for increased ratings, circulation and advertising revenue) but it still happens far more often than you might think and the guy who claims to know the "The real Truth" is all to often one of the mischief makers mentioned earlier.
For better or worse the internet gives voice to EVERY ONE; You, me, mum, dad the kids the local school and boles club the government and/or big business the religious and/or political Zealot and nutcase the racist, bigot, mental defective and semi-literate that normal people wouldn't pissing on if they were on fire and all points in between! Anybody can make a Blog or website and post whatever they like on social media and it can be as nonsensical, bigoted and farfetched as you like and rest assured there will be someone who will believe every word, defend and add to it as well...
I believe a good working real conspiracy plan must have the following to have any real chance of success,
1: Very few people involved, just barely enough to get the job done and maintain secrecy. (This is just about impossible because someone will always spill the beans at some point either through carelessness or a fit of conscience, I mean if the president of the United States of America cant enjoy a nice quiet little blow job in the privacy of the oval office bathroom then what hope do conspirators have who are trying to take over the world etc...?!)
2: The people involved will be dedicated to the conspiracy and/or have a vested interest in it's success and will benefit or see a benefit from their actions. (Political, religious, social or financial etc)
3: The people involved will willingly remain silent and protect each other and the conspiracy because of the above. (The threat of physical violence against a participant or their family etc is very risky to the conspirators and no guarantee of silence.)
4: The mechanics of the conspiracy must be as simple as possible and above all, subtle...
When a real conspiracy comes to the surface questions of it's authenticity will all ways arises. Now depending on who is exposing it and how it is being presented and is there any apparent ulterior motive behind the whistle being blown will all be vital to it's acceptance by the media and public as truth. Presentation is all important; If the story is presented in a "tabloid," hysterical or bigoted manner, blaming one or more religious, political or social groups or appears to be the ranting of a Looney, even if it's 100% true, it will rarely be accepted by those who could possibly do something about it.
Depending what the conspiracy is about, the main stream can be the most believable and accurate though not always as this will
depend on the event and whether or not it affects the government, business and/or society in some adverse way or is contra
to the particular predisposition of the media owner so they will sometimes even present biased editorial and "alternative facts" disguised as news...
Criminal in my book!
Alternative media can be the most truthful and objective though it is often considered the most unreliable and unlike the main stream it has little or no accountability for what it produce's and is infested with the aforementioned conspiracy theorists and unfortunately is often an offshoot of the mainstream and is owned, funded and controlled (at arms length) by the same big media company's.
Regrettably truly independent, accurate and unbiased journalism is very hard to come buy now days and it never ceases to amaze me how eager and desperate some people are to believe in any sort of convoluted and outlandish conspiracy theory without question no matter how tenuous the evidence may be but will have grave doubts about something that was simpleton explain.
Now you might think after reading this I am totally anti conspiracy theory, not so as many an outlandish theory could well become or is a fact; I am however against ignorant bigots, mental defectives and trolls who continuously muddy the waters with their incessant rubbish and hinder us from getting to the bottom of events that may well need to be exposed and investigated.
You know, when we look at society and the dramatic events happening around us today, most of the time it's just the way the
world turns, no conspiracies or "dark forces" are necessary to screw things up, "shit-just-happens!"
My advice, keep an open mind (but not to the point that your brains fall out) and take everything with a good healthy cynical grain of salt and understand that one kind of shit or another will always happen no matter what and if it doesn't affect you, try not to worry about it and if it does, then don't be a basement or keyboard worrier, get of your ass and do something meaningful!
And that's "The Truth!"

An interesting fact.
Most phobias only effect the individual that suffer from them and their family and friends,
but one particular phobia can affect a business and its bottom line...
Globophobia is a fear of balloons and Phonophobia is a fear of them bursting, also a
fear of loud noises in general.
I worked in advertising and media for many years and always advised my clients who were about to have a promotion etc to decorate their business with anything except balloons. (The foil or fake ones don't seem to be as much of a problem but are more expensive.)
There are many people (more than you may think) who will just not enter a premises, attend a party
or even enter a room if there are balloons present...
This may seem strange and even irrelevant, "So what" you may say, "Who cares about a few kooks who are frightened by bawooons!" Maybe, but if you are having a sale and want as many people as possible coming through the door and handing over their cash it makes sound business sense.
Fifty balloons may not be worth very much but they could stop you from making hundreds or even thousands
of extra dollars during the course of the event and this can have a major impact on your bottom line!
For thousands of years Religion has
served a purpose, to put the
"fear" of God into people, and to make them submissive
and obedient to their rulers.
Yes it has instilled a good set of morals that have, for the most part, allowed people to live side by side without stealing, killing or raping each other but, in the modern world, religion has become redundant and even ridiculous to the more free thinking, tolerant and advanced societies.
I'm not saying there isn't a God, but if there is and it created us and loves us and gave us free will, then it sure as fuck wouldn't have
done so just to be worshipped!
If life is a gift, and should be lived without fear.

So God Made A Dog.
And on the 9th Day God looked down on his wide eyed children and said they need a companion.
So God made a Dog.
God said I need somebody to wake up and give kisses, pee on a tree, sleep all day, wake up again, give more kisses,
and then stay up till midnight basking in the glow of the television set.
So God made a Dog.
God said I need somebody willing to sit, then stay, then roll over then with no ego or complaint dress in hats they do not need and costumes they do not understand. I need somebody who can break wind without a first thought or second thought. Who can chase tails, sniff crotches, fetch sticks and lift spirits with a lick. Somebody no matter what you didn’t do, or couldn’t take,
or didn’t win, or couldn’t make will love you without judgment just the same.
So God made a Dog.
God said I need somebody strong enough to pull sleds and find bombs, yet gentle enough to love babies and lead the blind. Somebody who will spend all day on a couch with the resting head and supportive eyes to lift the spirits of a broken heart.
So God made a Dog.
It had to be somebody who would remain patient and loyal even thru loneliness. Somebody to care, cuddle, snuggle and nuzzle, and cheer and charm and snore and slobber and eat the trash and chase the squirrels. Somebody who would bring a family together with selflessness of an open heart. Somebody who would bark, and then pant, and then reply with the rapid
wag of tail when their best friend says lets go for a ride in the car.
So God made a Dog.
God said I need somebody who would stand at your side when the world around you collapses. Somebody to lie next to you during the long nights of pain and sorrow when it hurts to move, or talk, or think, or just be. Somebody to stand guard,
play games, snore for hours, and repeat as needed. Somebody to give you strength when you have none of your own.
Somebody to fight when you have no fight left, to hold onto your soul as if it were their favorite toy, playing tug of war to
keep you in this world. Somebody to be your companion and guide in this world and the next.
Somebody to wait for you on the other side or stand guard in your absence until they can join you for eternity.
So God made a Dog.

Two beggars are sitting side by side on a
street in Rome.
One has a Cross in front of him; the other is holding the Star of David.
Many people go by and look at both beggars, but only put money
into the hat of the beggar sitting behind the Cross.
The Pope comes by so he stops to watch the throngs of people giving money to the beggar
who holds the Cross while none give to the beggar holding the Star of David.
Finally, the Pope approaches the beggar with the Star of David and says, "My poor fellow, don't you understand? This is a Catholic country; this city is the seat of Catholicism. People aren't
going to give you money if you sit there with a Star of David in front of you,
especially when you're sitting beside a beggar who is holding a Cross.
In fact, they would probably give more money to him just out of spite."
The beggar with the Star of David listened to the Pope, smiled, and turned to the
beggar with the Cross and said, "Moishe, would you look at who's
trying to teach the Goldstein brothers about marketing!"

It is my experience at my local gun club at aged 80 and in a wheelchair.
The Granny Rap.
(Backing group – The Senior Moments.)
(Transport – Courtesy of The Wheelchair Whackers.)
I ‘m past my prime and my ‘use by’ date
So decided to exit while tempting fate.
I wanted to learn how to use a gun
As it might prove useful and lots of fun.
“ I’m an Octogenarian with attitude”.
I moseyed along to a club at Myponga
At Lawless Lane way out in the Donga.
While firing a gun at the target I found
My bullets made holes in that big round mound
“ I’m an Octogenarian with attitude”.
Those guns are comprised of myriad bits
I just can’t remember where all the bits fit
It was just as well I had supervision
Or I might have shot the new television.
“ I’m an Octogenarian with attitude”.
I Googled those guns in a flash on the net
So that breeches and slides I wouldn’t forget
My dreams are now filled with Glocks and Sig-Sauers
And my eyes are dark circled by long weary hours.
“ I’m an Octogenarian with attitude”.
There’s a stock of gun parts in Cyber Space
That’s the ones that I lost with never a trace
I’ve got one last request before I die
A ten shot group in the Black Bull’s Eye.
“I’m an Octogenarian with attitude”.
And when I finally get to Heaven
And received my AK 47
With a word in their ear
And nothing to fear
I’ll request sniper duties by next New Year.
I’ve been shooting now for almost a year
And was nearly thrown out on my delicate ear
I committed the ultimate cardinal sin
When I turned my pistol pointing in
And received a Right Royal Bollokin’
I’m now surrounded by macho males
And listen with awe as they spin tall tales
And when the shooting is done for the day
With a’ burgher and beer they sit in the sun
Then lean on the bar ‘til half past one
I finally reached the ultimate prize
My favourite target with two bull’s eyes
To repeat this feat would be very nice
So I’m saving my cash on some secret advice
For bullets that come with a homing device
Think of the kudos I’ll get right then
When all of my bullets land smack in the ten
I’ll blow on the tip of my gun like a pro
While hiding a grin from the gob-smacked men
Then write ‘perfect score’ with my favourite pen
How did that old woman get out of her chair
And shoot that big hole in that target there?
Crack shots don’t arise from old, infirm folk!
Puzzled they chewed like a dog with a bone
I smiled to myself as I reached for the ‘phone
And doubled my order for ‘magic cone’
I think I’ll shoot ‘til I’m ninety-three
By then my bullets should all come free?
But I might wake up and suddenly find
Along the way I had lost my mind
Think what a boon for the folks that would be
More and more women are joining the club
And even more men have escaped to the pub
The last male bastion has been invaded
With female perfume the air’s pervaded
Now men form a scowl when they hand in their subs
I’ve had a go at the shotguns and clays
But can’t make my eyes look in two different ways
By the time I’ve found the shell number one
The blast’s knocked me down on my proverbial bum
And lowest score buys the beer on the day
When my Gopher sails past with two guns in the basket
I much prefer that to a big wooden casket
I’ve never been asked to pay speeding fines
But when offered a ride the folks all decline
They remember a hole in the plaster ‘mid total disaster
It’s time for me to get on my way
And pack my bags for the final stay
I often look back on my life as it was
And I’d not change a deed not even a cause
I can laugh at all the mistakes I have made
But it’s too late now, for my escapades
Beware the folks that camp out at night
‘Cause I might pop out and give you a fright
When my ghost can be found
With a leash on a hound
It’s just Baron and me doing our rounds.
You know your a sick puppy when you get turned on by

May I be of some assistance?
The German air traffic controllers at Frankfurt Airport are a
short-tempered lot. They not only expect one to know one's gate parking location
but how to get there without any assistance from them. So it was with some
amusement that we (a PanAm 747) listened to the following exchange Between
Frankfurt ground control and a British Airways 747
(call sign "Speedbird 206") after landing:
Speedbird 206: "Good morning Frankfurt, Speedbird 206 clear of the active runway."
Ground: "Guten morgen! You vill taxi to your gate!"
The British Airways 747 pulled onto the main taxiway and stopped.
Ground: "Speedbird, do you not know vare you are going?"
Speedbird 206: "Stand by, ground, I'm looking up the gate location now."
Ground (with impatience): "Speedbird 206, haff you never flown to Frankfurt before?"
Speedbird 206 (coolly): "Yes, in 1944. But I didn't stop."

When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!"

IDENTIFYING A STROKE.
During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ....she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up,
she went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.
Her husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm and had passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps she would be with us today.
Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.
If a neurologist can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours there's very good chance
he can totally reverse the effects of the stroke.
The trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically
cared for within 3 hours, which can tough.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a
stroke by asking four simple questions:
1: Ask the individual to smile.
2: Ask the individual stick out there tongue.
(If the tongue or smile is 'crooked', or if it goes to one side or the other it can be a indication of a stroke.)
3: Ask the person to talk and say a simple sentence (Coherently)
4: Ask him or her to raise both arms.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
Rusty's last stand!
A Lost History:
"With AT-ATs to the Reich"
Inspection before Barbarossa. On maneuvers, SS-Hauptsturmfuhrer Wittman
labors with poor communication.
Unknown to many historians, the Nazis and there fellow Axis
had close but highly secretive ties with the Galactic empire of the despotic Emperor Palpatine.
Here for instance we see the only three known surviving photographs from WW2 of Imperial AT-ATs (All Terrain Armored Transport) that are known to exist.
The empire loaned the Wehrmacht 50 of the vehicles plus there five man (Clown) crews and 1000 ground troops on the understanding that once the war was over the Fuhrer would send 100 of his best soldiers to enhance the gene pool and training of the imperial troopers. (In later years human mercenaries from many nations were highly regarded and feared through out the galaxy, though this is a story for another time.)
To say this brief alliance was a disaster is an understatement!
SS-Hauptsturmfuhrer Michael Wittman, arguably Germany's Best Tank Commander of WWII, was not impressed from the start...
"When I first saw the thing (AT-AT) all I could think of was, my God, it's too big (25 meters tall) it will be seen for miles around, why don't we just paint a damned bullseye on the side and have done with it!"
The Hauptsturmfuhrers words were indeed prophetic, for when battle was joined with the meager Soviet forces in the early days of operation Barbarossa the vulnerabilities and other
short comings of the imperial walkers became glaringly evident.
Though the AT-AT was an imposing and spectacular sight on the battlefield its lack of compatible communications, speed, mobility, armaments and most
importantly it's lack of effective armour was it's Achilles heel, it was all too easily out outmaneuvered and out gunned by even the lightest of Russian fighting vehicles.
The main problem lay in it's total lack of protection against armour-piercing and high explisiv shells of almost any caliber!
The imperials had designed the defenses of all there combat vehicles and personal body armour around the affects of "energy" weapons
(particle beam, laser, pulse etc) and this it apparently could do very well indeed, however, against "primitive" societies using "primitive" projectile weapons
the AT-AT proved all to horribly vulnerable as Grenadier sergeant Alfred Gunther explains.
"We're sitting in the troop compartment of this "Sardine tin," when all of a sudden we were raked by a heavy Ruski MG somewhere out on the left flank, the bullets tore through the paper thin sides and
went ricocheting around the compartment like a swarm of angry hornets, of the thirty men onboard only eight got away unscathed, Christ we hated them, it was safer to trudge
behind the rotten things than ride in them!"
After the initial shock wore off, the Soviet anti-tank gunners and tank crews looked forward to a little, "Elephant hunting" as they unimaginatively called it.
Communication was the other big hurdle that had to be overcome and this was only partially achieved.
Alfred Gunther again, "We had radio, they had something else, God knows what! We spoke German they didn't, if we were trying to coordinate an attack on a village all we could do was point madly
and shout Bang!-Bang! Yes, the imperial troops were well disciplined, brave and aggressive there weapons were effective and terribly "colorful and pretty" to watch going off, though
they never seemed to hit much with them, this and the lack of clear communications made the whole thing laughable!"
Hauptsturmfuhrer Wittman also wrestled with poor communication. "Much to my horror I was put in command of an AT-AT. It's imperial crew, despite the language barrier, were enthusiastic and obviously well trained and it was easy to teach them the meaning of, forward, reveres, left, right etc but the main problem was that they all seemed to be conditioned to wear there combat helmets at all times except when told to stand down by there superior imperial officers. Now I was not issued with a compatible coms system so how on earth was I supposed to issue orders to my crew in the heat of battle? My solution was simplistic.
My makeshift position in the vehicle was perched above and directly behind the driver who sits on the right the engineer/co-driver on the left and the commander/gunner in the centre, if I wanted to go forward I would tap the back of the drivers helmet with my boot, once for forward twice for stop three times for reverse, and a tap on the right or left shoulder for my desired direction. As for the gunner all I could do is fire a
stream of tracer from my MG (we were not permitted to use there weapons...) at the desired target and the gunner would fire the main armament, it was crude but still effective after a
fashion but still no way to fight a war!"
The weaponry of the AT-AT, though being effective against personnel and other soft targets, had little or no real affect on the more heavily armored Soviet tanks the "charge" being dissipated on contact
with the thick steel hull. However if an bolt hit an open view port directly the resultant plasma blast would prove decisive!
Though it was a true all terrain vehicle it could be stymied by simple barbed wire entanglements that were laid in depth, couple this with it's inability to turn quickly to engage flanking targets, the overly
high and simplistic slab sided design and the inability to withstand all but small arms fire added to it's hopples vulnerability.
Unaware of the true origin of this lumbering and seemingly inept enemy, General Georgy Zhukov wondered allowed if, "The fascist designers have been drinking a little too much Schnapps or are trying
to be too clever or for there tank men's good!"
After it's disastrous debut during operation Barbarossa (37 of the original 50 AT-ATs being destroyed in the opening few days) it was relegated to transporting supplies and troops but they too became
easy targets for marauding IL-2 Sturmoviks and other attack aircraft of the resurgent Soviet forces latter in the war and all were ultimately destroyed.
Many have wondered why Emperor Palpatine didn't try to invade Earth, the answer must lie in the performance (or total lack of) of there "superior weaponry."
To design and produce weapons to subjugate the inhabitants of just one "primitive" world, who would have no doubt put aside there differences and allied together to fight the invaders, must have
been a daunting prospect even for the power mad and expansionist Emperor Palpatine...

Let us now refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor activity.
When a man volunteers to do a BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion:
(1) The woman buys the food.
(2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert.
(3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside
the grill - beer in hand.
(4) The woman remains outside the compulsory three meter exclusion zone where the exuberance of testosterone and other manly bonding activities can take place without the interference of the woman.
Here comes the important part:
(5) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.
(6) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.
(7) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is looking great. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he flips the meat
(8) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.
(9) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.
(10) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.
(11) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.
(12) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed
' her night off ' and, upon seeing her annoyed

THE TWO WOLVES
One evening an old man told his grandson about a battle
that goes on inside people. He said,
"My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.
"One is Evil - It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, false pride, superiority, and ego.
"The other is Good - It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, compassion and faith."
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:
"Which wolf wins?"
The old man simply replied,
"The one you feed child, the one you feed."

The Squirrel and the Grasshopper
REST OF THE WORLD VERSION
The squirrel works hard in the withering heat all summer
long, building and improving his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks he's a fool, and laughs and
dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the squirrel is warm and well fed.
The shivering grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he
dies out in the cold.
THE AUSTRALIAN VERSION
The squirrel works hard in the withering heat all summer
long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks he's a fool, and laughs and
dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the squirrel is warm and well fed.
A social worker finds the shivering grasshopper, calls a
press conference and demands to know why the squirrel should be allowed
to be warm and well fed while others less fortunate, like the
grasshopper, are cold and starving.
The ABC shows up to provide live coverage of the
shivering grasshopper; with cuts to a video of the squirrel in his
comfortable warm home with a table laden with food.
The Australian press informs people that they should be
ashamed that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is
allowed to suffer so while others have plenty.
The Greens, Animal Rights, The Grasshopper
Housing Commission of Australia and Greenpeace demonstrate in front of the
squirrel's house. The ABC, interrupting a cultural festival special from
St Kilda with breaking news, broadcasts a multi cultural choir singing
"We Shall Overcome".
Bill Shorten rants in an interview with Laurie Oakes
that the squirrel got rich off the backs of grasshoppers, and calls for
an immediate tax hike on the squirrel to make him pay his "fair share"
and increases the charge for squirrels to enter Melbourne city centre.
In response to pressure from the media, the Government
drafts the Economic Equity and Grasshopper Anti Discrimination Act,
retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The squirrel's taxes are
reassessed. He is taken to court and fined for failing to hire
grasshoppers as builders, for the work he was doing on his home and an
additional fine for contempt when he told the court the grasshopper did
not want to work.
The grasshopper is provided with a Housing Commission
house, financial aid to furnish it and an account with a local taxi firm
to ensure he can be socially mobile. The squirrel's food is seized and
re-distributed to the more needy members of society - in this case the grasshopper.
Without enough money to buy more food, to pay the fine
and his newly imposed retroactive taxes, the squirrel has to downsize
and start building a new home. The local authority takes over his old
home and utilizes it as a temporary home for asylum seeking cats who had
hijacked a plane to get to Australia as they had to share their country
of origin with mice. On arrival they tried to blow up the airport
because of Australians' apparent love of dogs.
The cats had been arrested for the international offence
of hijacking and attempted bombing but were immediately released because
the police fed them pilchards instead of salmon whilst in custody.
Initial moves to make then return them to their own country were
abandoned because it was feared they would face death by the mice.
The cats devise and start a scam to obtain money from people's credit cards.
A 60 Minutes special shows the grasshopper finishing up
the last of the squirrel's food, though spring is still months away,
while the Housing Commission house he is in, crumbles around him because
he hasn't bothered to maintain it.
He is shown to be taking drugs. Inadequate government
funding is blamed for the grasshopper's drug "Illness".
The cats seek recompense in the Australian courts for
their treatment since arrival in Australia.
The grasshopper gets arrested for stabbing an old dog
during a burglary to get money for his drug habit. He is imprisoned but
released immediately because he has been in custody for a few weeks.
He is placed in the care of the probation service to monitor and supervise him.
A commission of enquiry, that will eventually cost $10
million and state the obvious, is set up. Additional money is put into
funding a drug rehabilitation scheme for grasshoppers. Legal aid for
lawyers representing asylum seekers is increased. The asylum seeking
cats are praised by the government for enriching Australia's
multicultural diversity and dogs are criticized by the government for
failing to befriend the cats.
The grasshopper dies of a drug overdose.
The usual sections of the press blame it on the obvious failure of government to
address the root causes of despair arising from social inequity
and his traumatic experience of prison.
They call for the immediate resignation of the minister.
The cats are paid $1 million each because their rights
were infringed when the government failed to inform them there were mice in Australia.
The squirrel, the dogs and the victims of the hijacking,
the bombing, the burglaries and robberies have to pay an additional
percentage on their credit cards to cover losses, their taxes are
increased to pay for law and order, and they are told that they will
have to work beyond 65 because of a shortfall in government funds.

You'll love his reply to the lady who interviewed him concerning guns and children. Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you gotta love this! This is one of the best comeback lines of all time. It is a portion of an ABC interview between a female broadcaster and General Cosgrove who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military headquarters.
So, General Cosgrove, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?
We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery and shooting.
Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?
I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.
Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?
I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.
But you're equipping them to become violent killers.

you're not one, are you?

Manure... An interesting fact.
Manure: In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything had to be transported by ship and it was also before commercial fertilizer's invention, so large
shipments of manure were common.
It was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet, but once water (at sea) hit it, it not only became heavier, but the process of fermentation began again, of which a by product is methane gas. As the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did) happen.
Methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern, BOOOOM!
Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was determined
just what was happening
After that, the bundles of manure were always stamped with the term
'Ship High In Transit' on them, which meant for the sailors to stow it high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would not touch this volatile cargo and start the production of methane.
Thus evolved the term ' S.H.I.T ', (Ship High In Transit) which has come down through the centuries and is in use to this very day.
You probably did not know the true history of this word.
Neither did I.
I had always thought it was a golf term.

At the end of the tax year, the Tax Office sent an inspector to
audit the books of a synagogue.
While he was checking the books he turned to the Rabbi and said:
"I notice you buy a lot of candles. What do you do with
the candle drippings?"
"Good question," noted the Rabbi.
"We save them up and send them back to the candle makers, and every now and then they send us a free box of candles."
"Oh," replied the auditor, somewhat disappointed that his unusual question had a practical answer.
But on he went, in his obnoxious way: "What about all these biscuit
purchases? What do you do with the crumbs?"
"Ah, yes," replied the Rabbi, realising that the inspector was trying to
trap him with an unanswerable question.
"We collect them and send them back to the manufacturers, and every now and then they send a free box of biscuits."
"I see!" replied the auditor, thinking hard about how he could
fluster the know-it-all Rabbi.
"Well, Rabbi," he went on, "what do you do with all the leftover foreskins
from the circumcisions you perform?"
"Here, too, we do not waste," answered the Rabbi.
"What we do is save up all the foreskins and send them to the Tax Office, and about once a year
they send us a complete dick."

A wave of nervous anticipation washes over him.
Low and behold, she takes the seat right beside his. Anxious to strike up a conversation, he blurts out, "So where are you flying to today?" She turns and smiles and says,
"To the annual Nymphomaniac Convention in Chicago."
Whoa! He swallows hard and is instantly CRAZED with excitement. Here's the most gorgeous woman he's ever seen, sitting right next to him, and she's going to a meeting of nymphomaniacs!
Struggling to maintain his outward cool, he calmly asks, "And what's your role at this convention?" She flips her long hair back, turns to him, looks into his eyes, and says, "Well, I try to debunk some of the popular myths about sexuality."
"Really", he says, swallowing hard, again. "And what myths are those?" She explains: "Well, one popular myth is that African American men are the most well-endowed, when, in fact, it is the Native American who is most likely to possess this trait. Another popular myth is that Frenchmen are the best lovers, when actually it is men of Jewish descent who
romance women best, on average."
"Very interesting" the man responds. Suddenly, the woman becomes very embarrassed, and blushes. "I'm sorry," she says, "I feel so awkward discussing this with you, and I don't even know your name." The man extends his hand and replies, "Tonto, Tonto Goldstein."

Atomic Energy Lab, USA ca. 1960
Mummy, is my face glowing?
In 1951, A.C. Gilbert introduced his U-238 Atomic Energy Lab,
a radioactive learning set we can only assume was fun for the whole math club. Gilbert, who American memorabilia claims was "often compared to Walt Disney for his creative genius," had a dream that nuclear power could capture the imaginations of children everywhere.
For a mere $49.50, the kit came complete with three "very low-level" radioactive sources, a Geiger-Mueller radiation counter, a Wilson Cloud Chamber (to see paths of alpha particles), a Spinthariscope (to see "live" radioactive disintegration), four samples of Uranium-bearing ores, and an Electroscope to measure radioactivity.
And what nuclear lab for kids would be complete without an Atomic Energy Manual and Learn How Dagwood Splits the Atom, comic book. (The latter was written with the help of General Leslie Groves, director of the Manhattan Project.)
Kids do the nuttiest things, but not, apparently, nuclear physics. The toy was only sold for one year. Funny about that...
It's unclear what effects the Uranium-bearing ores might have had on those few lucky children who received the set, but exposure to the same isotope—U-238—has been linked to cancer, leukaemia, and lymphoma, among other serious ailments.

The foundation of faith is total belief
without proof or evidence.
I would contend that if you do not fully believe 100% in your chosen faith, totally and unquestioningly you
can never truly call yourself a real Christian, Muslim, Jew, Hindu etc etc.
You must believe in all it's history, teachings, dogma, miracles and legends etc as nothing less than cold-hard-fact!
You must be in no doubt whatsoever.
No cherry picking, no choosing to believe the nice parts and ignoring the nasty or irrelevant bits, you must
fully agree with and accept your faith in it's entirety with all your heart and mind that
everything it preaches is sold, irrefutable truth and nothing else!
If you can't do that, then you are nothing but a mere pretender and loathsome hypocrite.
It's all or nothing simple as that!
If you can accept it all, then you are one of true faith.
And by today's standards you are also a complete imbecile!
Times have changed from 2000+ years ago. Modern man is more civilized and tolerant

The greatest source of unrest in our world comes from those who "Believe to much, and think too little..."
After all, if you could bring back the all men who wrote all the “Holy” books throughout history, how
well would they fit into our world, and how well would we fit into theirs…?
And take this into account as well; The people who wrote and adhered to all the dogmas of the past
would probably have more in common with a suicide bomber than with us...

NORINCO 77B 9mm VERY GOOD In the vast
pantheon of firearms there are many that stand out amongst there
The classic Colts Navy, Walker and peace maker. The noble Luger and C96 Mauser. The redoubtable Webly, Enfield and 1911Colt. The small but perfectly formed Lilliput. I could go on and on, and so I shall. The inscrutable Nambu 14 and Meiji 26. The mighty S&W M29 .44mag and the Oh so accurate .38 Model 14. The glamorous Python and the remarkable Fosbery and Webly Mars.
And then there's the 77B Norinco... A pistol that should have been interrupted at point of conception or at least strangled at birth!
The 77B uses the long discarded finger-cocking system that requires the firer to have the finger length and strength of an Orangutan to operate! This system was last seen on the diminutive "Lignose Einhand Model 3A" of 1917 this was fine on a little pocket .25 that you would take along if you were creeping about the red light districts of Paris or Berlin in the 1920s but not so good on a thumping great 9mm that's almost as big and heavy as a Beretta 92!

The first German serviceman killed in WW2 was killed by the Japanese (China, 1937), the first American serviceman killed was killed by the Russians (Finland1940); highest ranking American killed was Lt Gen Lesley McNair, killed by the US Army Air Corps. So much for allies.
During the Japanese attack on Hong Kong British
officers objected to Canadian
infantrymen taking up positions in the officer's mess.
No enlisted men allowed you know.
The US Army had more ships than the US Navy.
The youngest US serviceman was 12 year old Calvin Graham, USN. He was wounded and given a Dishonourable Discharge for lying about his age. His benefits were later restored by act of Congress.
The Russians destroyed over 500 German aircraft by ramming them in mid-air
(they also sometimes cleared mine fields by marching over them).

At the time of Pearl Harbour , the top US Navy command was called CINCUS (pronounced "sink us") the shoulder patch of the US Army's 45th Infantry division was the Swastika, and Hitler's private train was named "Amerika."
All three were soon changed for PR purposes.

Generally speaking, there was no such thing as an average fighter pilot. You were either an ace or a target. For instance, Japanese Ace Hiroyoshi Nishizawa shot down over 80 planes.
He died while a passenger on a cargo plane.
It was a common practice on fighter planes to load every 5th round with a tracer round to aid in aiming. This was a mistake. Tracers had different ballistics so (at long range) if your tracers were hitting the target 80% of your rounds were missing. Worse yet tracers instantly told your enemy he was under fire and from which direction. Worst of all was the practice of loading a string of tracers at the end of the belt to tell you that you were out of ammo.
This was definitely not something you wanted to tell the enemy.
Units that stopped using tracers saw their success rate nearly double and their loss rate go down.

THE BASTARD FROM THE BUSH
As the night was falling slowly over city, town and bush,
From a slum in Jones's Alley came the Captain of the Push,
And his whistle loud and piercing woke the echoes of the Rocks,
And a dozen ghouls came slouching round the corners of the blocks.
Then the Captain jerked a finger at a stranger on the kerb
Whom he qualified politely with an adjective and verb.
Then he made the introduction: 'Here's a covey from the bush-
Fuck me blind, he wants to join us—be a member of the Push.'
Then the stranger made this answer to the Captain of the Push.
'Why, fuck you dead, I'm Foreskin Fred, the bastard from the bush!
'I've been in every two-up school from Darwin to the 'Loo.
'I've ridden colts and black gins—what more can a bastard do!
'Are you game to smash a window?' asked the Captain of the Push.
'I'd knock a fucking house down,' said the bastard from the bush.
'Would you take a maiden's baby?' said the Captain of the Push.
'I'd take a baby's maiden,' said the bastard from the bush.
'Would you dong a bloody copper if you caught the cunt alone,
'Would you stoush a swell or Chinkee, split his garret with a stone?
'Would you have a moll to keep you, would you swear off work for good?'
'What? Live on prostitution? My colonial oath I would!'
'Would you care to have a gasper?' said the Captain of the Push.
'I'll take the bloody packet,' said the bastard from the bush.
Then the Pushites all took counsel, saying, 'Fuck me, but he's game.
'Let's make him our star basher, he'll live up to his name.'
So they took him to their hideout, that bastard from the bush,
And they granted him all privileges appertaining to the Push.
But soon they found his little ways were more than they could stand,
And finally the Captain thus addressed his little band.
'Now listen here, you buggers, we've caught a fucking tartar,
'At every kind of bludging, that bastard is a starter,
'At poker and at two-up, he's shook our fucking rolls,
'He swipes our fucking liquor, and he robs our fucking molls.'
So down in Jones's Alley all the members of the Push
Laid a dark and dirty ambush for the bastard from the bush.
So against the wall of Riley's pub, the bastard made a stand,
A nasty grin upon his dial, a bike-chain in each hand.
They sprang upon him in a bunch, but one by one they fell,
With crack of bone, unearthly groan, and agonising yell,
Till the sorely-battered Captain, spitting teeth and gouts of blood,
Held an ear all torn and bleeding in a hand bedaubed with mud.
' You low polluted bastard,' snarled the Captain of the Push,
'Get back to where your sort belong, that's somewhere in the bush:
'And I hope heaps of misfortune may soon tumble down on you,
'May some lousy harlot dose you till your ballocks turn sky-blue.
'May the pangs of windy spasms through your bowels dart,
'May you shit your bloody trousers every time you try to fart,
'May you take a swig of gin's piss, mistaking it for beer,
'May the next push you impose on toss you out upon your ear.
'May the itching piles torment you, may corns grow on your feet,
'May crabs as big as spiders attack your balls a treat,
'Then when you're down and outed, to a hopeless bloody wreck,
'May you slip back through your arsehole, and break your fucking neck.'
HE LAID HER ON THE TABLE
He laid her on the table
So white, clean and bare
His forehead wet with beads of sweat
He rubbed her here and there
He touched her neck and then he felt her breast
And then drooling felt her thigh
The slit was wet and all was set
He gave a joyous cry
The hole was wide – he looked inside
All was dark and murky
He rubbed his hands and stretched his arms
And then he stuffed the turkey!
So what were you thinking!
I must not fear.
Fear is the mind killer.
Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration...
I will face my fear!
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn to see its path.
Where fear has gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain!
Death is natures way of telling
you to slow down...
AN UNPLEASANT FACT!
There were 1605 road fatalities in 2006!
That's right 1605 dead Australians!
And not a single firearm in sight!
I think I will start a new pressure group,
"Car control Australia"
"The coalition for car control"
I think our government should prioritise a little don't you!
Swearing in French is like wiping your
ass with silk!
Don't walk in front, because I may not
Don't walk behind, because I may not lead
Don't walk beside-Just bugger off!!!

The description of Saddam Hussein's execution.
If you have seen the mobile phone or the official video of this unpleasant event, you may be
curious to know what was said, this is it.
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) -- The scene was at once macabre and
One of the most notorious dictators of the late 20th century, his hands bound behind him, was led up the stairs of the gallows by masked men in leather coats. A few seconds later, a trapdoor snapped open and - with a crash - Saddam was dead.
He may have been the first chief of state executed in the age of the Internet and the camera phone. Probably because of that, his death was graphically documented on video, and available worldwide, within hours.
By several accounts, Saddam was calm but scornful of his captors, exchanging taunts and accusations with the crowd gathered to watch him die - insisting that he was Iraq's savoir, not its tyrant and scourge.
State television did not broadcast footage of the actual hanging. But camera phone video, posted in full or in part on several Web sites, picked up where the TV coverage left off.
In the videos, Saddam calmly recited verses from the Quran in a calm, clear voice as the trap door opened.
Finally, his body can be seen swinging in the dim light - his neck apparently snapped.
Saddam had reportedly asked that, as Iraq's commander in chief, he be sent before a firing squad. Instead, he was condemned to die on the gallows - as though he were a garden variety murderer.
The 69-year-old former president struggled briefly as the U.S. military, which had custody of Saddam, handed him over to the Iraqis, said Sami al-Askari, a political adviser to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
Saddam did not wear his familiar military uniform with its jaunty beret but a black coat over a white shirt, black trousers and black shoes. His jet black hair was carefully combed, his salt-and-pepper beard neatly clipped.
From that moment on, his last acts of defiance, it seems, consisted of verbal jousting and silent contempt.
Saddam was taken to a former military intelligence headquarters in Baghdad's Shiite neighbourhood of Kazimiyah, in northern Baghdad. During his regime, he had numerous dissidents executed in the facility.
Munir Haddad, an appeals court judge who witnessed the hanging, told the British Broadcasting Corp. that Saddam was not sedated.
"Not at all, Saddam was normal and in full control," Haddad said. "He was aware of his fate and he knew he was about to face death. He said, 'This is my end, this is the end of my life, but I started my life as a fighter and as a political militant so death does not frighten me.'"
After his captors brought Saddam into the execution chamber, his hands - which were tied in front of him - were untied, then tied in the back, Haddad told the BBC.
"He said we are going to heaven and our enemies will rot in hell and he also called for forgiveness and love among Iraqis but also stressed that the Iraqis should fight the Americans and the Persians," Haddad told the BBC.
The New York Times reported that Mowaffak al-Rubaie, the national security adviser for Iraq, stood next to Saddam before he mounted the scaffold, and asked him if he felt remorse and fear.
"No," the Times quoted Saddam saying. "I am a militant and I have no fear for myself. I have spent my life in jihad and fighting aggression. Anyone who takes this route should not be afraid."
Al-Rubaie told the Times that one of the guards grew angry. "You have destroyed us," he reportedly shouted. "You have killed us. You have made us live in destitution."
"I have saved you from destitution and misery and destroyed your enemies, the Persian and Americans," Saddam responded, al-Rubaie told the Times.
"God damn you," the guard said.
"God damn you," Saddam said, according to the Times.
A silent, minute-long video that aired on Iraqi television showed Saddam on the scaffold. He seemed to have little to say, and his eyes appeared lost in a 1,000-yard stare.
Four or five burly men guided him gently but firmly toward a red metal railing marking the trap door. A thick rope hung like a sinister vine from the low ceiling. An unseen photographer's flash created fleeting stark shadows.
With a blank expression, Saddam refused a black hood - but he did so with a shake of his head that seemed more distracted than defiant.
Then he appeared to agree to let one of his executioners tie a black scarf around his neck. The Times reported that his guards explained the rope could cut off his head, and offered to protect his neck with the scarf.
In the televised video, Saddam stood stoically as the noose was slipped over his head. The noose was tightened. Then the Iraqi TV footage ended.
But the camera phone video, broadcast in part on Al-Jazeera and aired in full on Arabic-language Web sites, continued.
In the video, one of those attending the execution called out praise for Dawa Party founder and Shiite cleric Mohammed Baqir al-Sadr, who was executed along with his sister by Saddam in 1980. The Islamic party has been locked in a fierce decades-old battle with Saddam's now outlawed secular Baath party. Muqtada al-Sadr, the powerful and radical Shiite cleric in Iraq, is a distant relative of the Dawa founder.
Saddam appeared to smile at those taunting him from below the gallows, and said they were not showing their manhood.
Then Saddam began reciting the "Shahada," a Muslim prayer that says there is no god but God and Muhammad is his messenger.
"Saddam did so but with sarcasm," Haddad said. But to others, Saddam's tone sounded calm and measured, neither sarcastic nor frightened.
Saddam made it to midway through his second recitation of the verse. His last word was Muhammad, according to a translation by the Associated Press.
The floor dropped out of the gallows, there was a crash and the chamber erupted in shouting.
"The tyrant has fallen," someone called. The video showed a close-up of Saddam's face as he swung from the rope.
Then came another voice: "Let him swing for three minutes."
Asked if Saddam suffered, Haddad told the BBC: "He was killed instantly, I witnessed the impact of the rope around his neck and it was a horrible sight."
Iraqi television broadcasts included a shaky image of the aftermath: a shot of what appeared to be Saddam's corpse, laid out on a hospital gurney, his head wrenched grotesquely to the right. His neck appeared to be bruised.
Saddam's half brother Barzan Ibrahim and Awad Hamed al-Bandar, the former chief justice of the Revolutionary Court, were originally scheduled to be hanged along with their former leader.
Iraqi officials, though, decided to reserve the occasion for Saddam alone.
Saddam hanging proven a fake!

BILLY CONNOLLY'S CHAIN LETTER
Hello, my name is Billy and I suffer from guilt for not forwarding
50 billion fucking chain letters sent to me by people who actually believe if you send them on, a poor six year old girl in Scotland with a breast on her forehead will be able to raise enough money to have it removed before her redneck parents sell her to a travelling freak show.
And, do you honestly believe that Bill Gates is going to give you, and everyone to whom you send "his" email, $1000?
How stupid are we?!
Ooooh, looky here! If I scroll down this page and make a wish, I'll get laid by a model I just happen to run into the next day!
What a bunch of bullshit!!
Maybe the evil chain letter leprechauns will come into my house and sodomize me in my sleep for not continuing a chain letter that was started by St Peter in 5AD and brought to this country by midget pilgrim stowaways on the Endeavour.
If you're going to forward something, at least send me something mildly amusing.
I've seen all the "send this to 10 of your closest friends, and this poor, wretched excuse for a human being will somehow receive a nickel from some omniscient being" forwards about 90 times.
I don't fucking care!
Show a little intelligence and think about what you're actually contributing to by sending out these forwards. Chances are, it's our own unpopularity...
The point being?
If you get some chain letter that's threatening to leave you shagless or luckless for the rest of your life, delete it.
If it's funny, send it on.
Don't piss people off by making them feel guilty about a leper in Botswana with no teeth who has been tied to the arse of a dead elephant for 27 years and whose only salvation is the 5 cents per letter he'll receive if you forward this email.
Now forward this to everyone you know!
Otherwise, tomorrow morning your underwear will turn carnivorous and will consume your genitals...
Have a nice day.
P.S: Send me 15 bucks and then fuck off!
Thanks Bruce for sharing.

My adult film industry friends (of which I have none, unfortunately) tell me that if you want to get into the business you need a really catchy stage (bed/floor/wall/swinging-from-ceiling/back of car etc) name and the best way to do this is to take the name of your very first pet and the name of the first street you lived in, put them both together and there you have it.

She turns and says,
"You've got to make love to me this very moment!"
His eyes light up,

"Well this is a different way to start the day!"
Not wanting to lose the moment, he embraces her and gives
his all on the kitchen table.
Afterwards she says,

More than a little puzzled he asks,

Naked youths would run through Rome, anointed with the blood of

Roman holiday to be the Feast of St. Valentine in 484 A.D.
A wise decision.

WOMAN: "Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"
WOMAN: "I am at the mall now and found this beautiful leather coat.
It's only $1,000. Is it OK if I buy it?"
MAN: "Sure, ...go ahead if you like it that much."
WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the New
2005 models. I saw one I really liked..."
MAN: "How much?"
MAN: "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."
WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing....the house we wanted Last
year is back on the market. They're now only asking $1350,000"
MAN: "Well, then go ahead and give them an offer, but just offer
$1250,000 and see how we go."
WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you!"
MAN: "Bye, I love you, too."
The man hangs up. The other men in the locker room are looking at him
Then he asks: "Anyone know who this phone belongs to?"

And now, as a public serves,
to all you long suffering owners of
Stripping and Assembly of the M1904 Bolt:
The complex nature of the M1904 Bolt and its difficult striping and reassembly process conducive to the loss of parts, contributed significantly to the demise of this Rifle as a Service Arm with the Union of South Africa, Defence Force.
UDF Troops are documented as arriving on Parade with disassembled Bolts and their parts tied in a handkerchief and many surviving Rifles today are found with replacement Bolts, or the Safety flag having been replaced, as was easily lost.
Today, many M1904 owners rather do not strip the Bolt assembly, or, hand this job to a competent Gunsmith.
Although delicate and complicated the task of stripping and re-assembling these Bolts can easily be undertaken by the average owner and a set of instructions is published here to assist in this.
- Check Rifle is empty and safe.
- Pull out Bolt stop on left rear of receiver and slide Bolt assembly out to the rear.
- The Bolt assembly must be cocked for disassembly.
To disassemble the Bolt assembly:
1) Turn cocking piece at rear of the Bolt assembly counter clockwise, (Seen from behind) 90 degrees. This will lower the cocking piece forward to the "uncocked" or "fired" position in the back of the Bolt barrel.
2) Rotate the Bolt face at front of the Bolt assembly clockwise through 90 degrees so that ejector slot of the Bolt face is aligned with the un-slotted blot lug on the Bolt barrel.
3) The cocking piece is now free to slide to the rear, remove and place aside.
4) Now rotate the Bolt face counter clock wise 270 degrees to align the slotted lug in the Bolt face with the guide rib on the Bolt barrel.
Be aware that the Bolt-face is spring loaded and will release forward if not contained.
5) Remove Bolt face forward and extract firing pin and spring to the front.
Reassembly is roughly in reverse:
1) Place spring and firing pin in Bolt-body. Add Bolt-face noting the keyway for the firing pin on the inside of the Bolt-face forks.
2) With slotted lug on Bolt-face aligned with the Bolt-rib the firing pin is pressed back into the Bolt-body with pressure on the Bolt-face.
Pressing down, rotate Bolt-head until slotted Bolt-face lug is aligned with the unslotted lug on the Bolt-body.
3) Replace the cocking-piece at the rear down to the "uncocked" position.
4) Now rotate the Bolt-head 90 degrees counter clockwise until resistance is felt.
5) Grab Bolt-head in one hand and cocking piece in the other (for right-handed persons use; left forward and right rear).
6) Pull back on the cocking piece while rotating both the Bolt-head and cocking-piece 90 degrees clock wise until the slotted Bolt-head lug is aligned with the slotted Bolt-body lug and the cocking-piece is in the "cocked" position.
Note that because the Bolt-face must be attached to the firing pin before the cocking piece can be added, it is not possible to fire the Rifle with the Bolt-head missing.
Refit to Rifle from the rear.

Frank was excited about his new rifle, and decided to try bear hunting.
He spotted a small brown bear and shot it.
There was then a tap on his shoulder, and he turned round to see a big black bear.
The black bear said, "That was my cousin, and you've got two choices.
Either I maul you to death or we have sex."
After considering briefly, Frank decided to accept the latter alternative.
Even though he felt sore for two weeks, Frank soon recovered and vowed revenge.
He headed out on another trip where he found the black bear and shot it.
There was another tap on his shoulder.
This time a huge grizzly bear stood right next to him.
The grizzly said, "That was a huge mistake, Frank. That was my cousin
and you've got two choices.
Either I maul you to death or we have rough sex."
Again, Frank thought it was better to cooperate.
Although he survived, it would take several months before Frank finally recovered.
Outraged, he headed back to the woods, managed to track down the grizzly and shot it.
He felt sweet revenge, but then there was a tap on his shoulder.
He turned round to find a giant Kodiak bear standing there.
The bear said, "Admit it, Frank, you don't come here for the hunting, do you...

"The Armalite AR10"
I bet you don't know about the sculdugery that went on behind the scenes concerning the
AR10 Vs M14 during the US small arms trials!
The Armalite entry was deliberately sabotaged by unreasonable official demands, for example the testing board demanded that the AR10 use a light steel barrel which they new would blow the gun up thus forcing Armalite out of the contest, the same modification was not demanded of the M14, cute!
In a nut shell, Springfield armoury said they could produce the M14 on existing M1 Garand machinery with minimal retooling and expense, they lied! And ultimately Springfield armoury was closed down by the US government.

He asks Dolly if there's some particular reason why she should go to heaven, whereupon she takes off her top and says, "Look at these!
They're the most perfect breasts God ever created, and I'm sure it will please God to be able to see them every day for eternity."
St. Peter thanks Dolly, and asks Her Majesty the same question.
The Queen takes a bottle of Perrier out of her purse, shakes it up, and gargles. Then she spits into the toilet and pulls the lever.
St. Peter says, "Okay, your Majesty, you may go in."
Dolly is outraged and asks, "What was that all about? I show you two of God's most exquisite creations and you turn me down. She simply gargles and spits and she gets in. Would you explain that to me?

Either he had supernatural powers which enabled him to
prophesy the future with uncanny accuracy,
or (more likely)
He did for bullshit what Stonehenge did for rocks!
Lets be honest with ourselves, if you write vague enough prophecies, there will
be something there to fool almost anyone!
But wait! There's more!
How come not one of the psychics we have around nowadays saw, 9/11 the Bali
bombing the Asian and Japanese Tsunamis the Christchurch earth quake,
Global warming the Global financial crisis or Justin fucking Bieber!?

Harry and the pickle slicer.
Harry worked in a pickle factory. Unfortunately, he had a very great and powerful desire to put his penis in the pickle slicer.
This went on for years, and Harry couldn't stand it any more. So he decided to seek professional help for this odd infatuation of his.
He spent a few months with a shrink who finally gave up and told him
that since the desire was so powerful to put his penis in the pickle slicer
the only way to get over it was to do it!
So Harry gladly agreed to get it all over and done with that very next day at work.
The next day he came home from work at about 11.30, his wife was terribly worried and asked why he was home so early.
Harry explained to her for the very first time the desire he had had to put his penis in the pickle slicer.
He explained that he couldn't take it any more and that today he did it, and he got fired as a result.
The good lady gasped in horror and ran over to him, yanked down his pants, only to see his penis perfectly normal and intact.
She looked up bewildered and said"
"I don't understand ... what happened to the pickle slicer?"
"I think she got fired too..."

A bit of Yiddish humour...
A little Rabbi was walking down a street in Moscow and coming towards him was a
large Russian orthodox priest.
As they past each other the priest hissed at the Rabbi, "BASTARD!"
To which the Rabbi turned and replied,
A Rabbi was opening his mail one morning. Taking a single sheet of paper from an envelope he found written on it only one word: "shmuck."
At the next Friday night service, the rabbi announced, "I have known many people who have written letters and forgot to sign their names, but this week I received a letter from someone who signed his name.... and forgot to write a letter.

In my opinion (for what its worth) the
average licensed gun owner who "vowed" never again to support either of the two

and perhaps a re-think of the nations gun laws may be in order...

Yes I know, very rude and overly aggressive and I feel a little ashamed, but one of the few things I truly and deeply hate in this world are religious vermin like these. (Still no excuse for rudeness though.) So I came up with another approach just the other day when the aforementioned creeps of God came a knocking at my door.
After they introduced themselves I asked,
"Do you have faith in the lord as your true protector and guide through life?"
"Yes of course" they respond.
To which I reply, "Then can I suggest you do your door knocking around the
streets of Bankstown, Punchbowl and Lakemba!"
Lets see how great their faith is now...

BEAUTY IS ONLY SKIN
A True Horror Story!
I met with a gentleman the other day who wanted me to sell his four guns, there was a .308 Sako with a beautiful custom thumb-hole stock a nice neat looking 6.5x55 Mauser a .308 Winchester model 70 also with a custom thumb-hole and a Brno in .22 Hornet with double set triggers, all very yummy.
When I saw them I commented how good they looked and how well they would photograph for the web site, until I looked down the barrels.
Now you know when you peer down a gun barrel how it should look, reasonably shiny with those funny spirally things running down the middle, not so these beauties, they were rusted out from chamber to muzzle!
"What happened?" said I, "What do you mean?" said the butcher, "have you ever cleaned these?" "Oh yes" he replied "with a silicone cloth and a good quality gun wax." "What about the barrels?" I ask "I just use a pull through for them, after all I only ever use non corrosive ammo."
I won't go on any more about our conversation but you know what I mean. His guns had become virtually worthless, the only way to sell them would be to re-barrel the lot of them !
And the moral of the story is...
Clean your guns properly, with solvent etc or risk them becoming scrap metal!
We all want to get to heaven but nobody wants to die...

The Darwin Awards, are handed out to those
individuals who, through there conscientious application of stupidity,
manage to remove themselves from the human gene pool, thus ensuring the
"Survival of the fittest."
Who can forget those great previous winners, such as the Croation man who tried to open a grenade with a chain saw so he could make REALLY loud fireworks or more recently, the bright thief in India who tried to steal tunnel supports, only to have several tons of concrete tunnel fall in on him, or the Australian "Master" welder who tried to tack weld his oxy tank to his tin roof so it wouldn't fall of while he was working, great and marvellous
efforts you'll agree!
But I feel this years nomination (as yet to be examined by the judging panel) must go to the armed hold up guy who tried to rob a convenience store, he pulled out his revolver and took a shot at the cashier, but nothing happened, so our perplexed Napoleon of crime looks down the barrel to see what the matter was, and pulled the trigger again, thus solving the problem for good...

"My darling, I think we should have a serious interface, and have a frank, straightforward and open exchange of bodily fluids."
On the subject of donating guns to museums,
in my opinion, don't!
Firearms, are very politically incorrect, museum store rooms are full of all sorts of various bits and pieces that will never see the light of day, and even if they do it is unlikely that they will have a little plaque stating, "this gun has been graciously donated by Mr Harry Smith." Its also likely that they won't know what they have in front of them! E.G. In Sydney's fascinating Powerhouse museum, an obviously very rare and valuable black powder Muzzle loading drilling was still labelled as (if I recall correctly) a
"3 barrelled gun, how can you miss!" not exactly informative is it.
Ok, we can't be to hard on people who aren't enthusiasts but you get my drift.
So, what to do with that gun you or you're family don't want?
The answer is simple grasshopper, take the bloody thing to a gun dealer and have it sold, in that way the gun is handed on to some one who will appreciate it and you get some dollars in your pocket, its just that simple! Here ends the lesson...
Living life on the edge, does not mean

"OH, man! My karma ran over my dogma!"
An audience with the founder of RPG
I am often asked by new shooters, "what is the best Pistol/Rifle/Shot gun for me?" My advise is always, go for what you can afford and what feels right for you. There is no point investing $1000 or $2000 or more on your first gun if you are happier shooting with a $300 second hand one. Also, try out as many different guns as possible and ask your club mates their opinion. Remember, don't rush into buying what could be an expensive mistake...
"All a government and its police force can
do to stop crime with firearms is to ensure that the criminal, the insane, and
the irresponsible cannot obtain guns LEGALLY... Any thing else such as hindering
the law-abiding is a waste of time, tax payers money and police resources."
