Via teh Intervebs

After numerous rounds of ‘We don’t even know if Osama bin Laden is still alive’, Osama himself decided to send George Bush a letter in his own hand writing to let him know he was still in the game.

Bush opened the letter and it contained a single line of coded message:


Bush was baffled, so he e-mailed it to Condoleezza Rice. Condi and her aides had not a clue either, so they sent it to the FBI.

No one could solve it at the FBI so it went to the CIA, and then to MI6.

Eventually they asked the Mossad (Israeli intelligence) for help.

Within a minute the Mossad emailed the White House with this reply:

‘Tell the President he’s holding the note upside down.

Showing Them Some Love

I love a good car, because a good car is better than any man (or woman). It’ll be loyal. It’ll be your friend. It’ll do whatever you want, and it’ll do whatever you need it to. It’s a beautiful thing.

So, in keeping it fair with how ruthless I was with some truly hideous cars, I will now show you some great cars and explain what I think is so great about them.

First up is the Lexus SC430. To be completely honest and in the interests of full disclosure, I own one of these beauties. It’s had a complete overhaul though, so is now absolutely incomparable with the original Lexus SC430.

This is what the original SC430 looks like. Mine isn’t majorly different in design, but everything under the bonnet is completely different. However, I will give a fair assessment of the original.

2008 Lexus (not much different to mine)

The original was much easier to handle, but mine runs much better and is more economical, despite being much more powerful. The SC430 runs smoothly, handles well, and is incredibly responsive. It’s easy to fall in the trap of just wanting to go for a drive just for the luxury of being in this beautiful car, and to want to reward it.

What are they Puffing at Huffington?

I think Wronwright must have donned the trench-coat and dark glasses again and slipped Harold Ambler’s cogent little argument for climate change skepticism in the envelope marked “Handy Climate Alarmist Tips” and left it on an editor’s desk at The Huffington Post, because judging from the fallout, that’s the only way it seems it could have been published. Keven Grandia immediately rebutted the piece by taking each point and scrupulously ignoring them in favour of a general “He ain’t a climate scientist and I believe in NASA, the IPCC etc etc etc”. Ms Huffington went into complete denial mode, saying she never laid eyes on the piece. Ambler reckons she did:

“My sole contact at HuffPo prior to being accepted for publication was with Arianna Huffington herself. It was Arianna who read my piece, accepted it, and directed her staff to post it. That Post staff members would allow a claim of this kind to be part of an attack on a new poster, without internal fact-checking, is a shame.”

“bring flags, banners and placards and tell your family and friends to come”

State Library of Victoria

Swanston Street, Melbourne City

then marching to Federation Square

We had 3000 people last time, lets make it even bigger this time!

Well, I guess since I’m childfree this sunday arvo, I might just head on down and lend my support.

To Israel.

Now, I missed the one back on sunday before last; these are not my photos. A friend of mine who supports Israel went to the pro and anti-Israel demos took them and I’m posting them for him.

If anyone wishes to join me in showing support for Israel just by being there, drop me a line.
