Controversial Device Lets Users Inhale Alcohol, Become Intoxicated Much Faster


This has to be the stupidest device ever. The manufacturers are showing a distinct lack of moral sense and absolutely no judgement whatsoever. Just what the world needs is a mechanism to help people to get off their heads faster. This device will help them eradicate the remaining few brain cells that they had before inhaling.

Reggae Covers: Easy Star All Stars – Time (Waters/Gilmour/Mason/Wright)


Fabulous – I can see some Floyd fans absolutely hating this. But I love it. Gimme more…..

A Biscuit In The Sun

No collection of reggae covers would be complete without profuse mention of the groundbreaking 2003 ‘Dub Side of the Moon‘ project by NYC’s Easy Star All Stars dub collective. Subsequent ESAS projects have included ‘Radiodread‘ (a song-for-song transliteration of Radiohead‘s ‘OK Computer’) and the same treatment applied to The Beatles‘ seminal ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band’ via ‘Easy Star’s Lonely Heart’s Dub Band.’

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you’re older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

Help Catch This Thug


‘Vile’ cyclist punches couple in road attack – Portsmouth News.

I have posted the entire article from the News.

This thug needs to be locked up.

cyclist

A COUPLE attacked by a cyclist have called for the ‘vile’ man to be caught.

Lee Dyer and his fiancé were both punched in the face after getting involved in an argument with a cyclist while driving to pick up relatives from Portsmouth ferry port.

Lee, 46, is now in danger of losing sight in his left eye due to his injuries.

Police have released a description of a man they wish to speak to, who is 5ft 6in, in his 40s with mousey brown hair and stubble. The man was riding a red and white-framed bike with white-rimmed tyres.

Lee and his fiancé Lisa Elphick-Smith, 49, both of Outram Road, Southsea said they had stopped at temporary traffic lights near the Co-op at The Hard when they saw two men on bikes acting dangerously.

Lisa said: ‘They were terrorising people on the pavement, so I said “you’re going to injure yourself or someone else” and then he started yelling abuse at me.’

The couple then drove off, riled but thinking that was the end of of the matter.

But the abusive cyclist hadn’t finished.

The couple had to stop at the next traffic lights under the railway bridge in Ordnance Row.

Lee said: ‘There was a massive bang on my side of the window and before I knew it, my door was flung open and I was punched in the face two times.

‘Then Lisa jumped out and ran around the back of the car telling him to stop, and then he punched her the face as well.’

Lisa said she jumped back and avoided the full brunt of the blow, but still ended up on the ground with a sore hip.

Lee said a woman in another car accidently ran over the abusive man’s companion’s bicycle.

Lee said: ‘I’m not a small person – 15-and-ahalf stone – so then I put up my hands and said, “right, that’s enough now”, they ran off and I was left stood there covered in blood.’

Lisa, a nurse, tended to Lee’s injuries. She said he had a haematoma in his left eye and might yet lose the use of that eye.

She said: ‘He still can’t see out of that eye.’

‘I want this guy caught.

‘I want him put away because I think he’s absolutely vile, a menace to society.’

The incident happened just before 6.30pm on Saturday, February 22. Police have only just released details.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or has any information should call PC Greg Meacham at Southsea police station on 101. Alternatively call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111

My Road Rage is Finally Gone


Re-blogged for my biker friends and family.

You Got to be Kidding's Blog

I no longer have problems with road rage.

You may not have known I had issues with road rage. However, since I picked up my new bike people no longer seem to annoy me anymore. Maybe I have mellowed in my old age.

Just wanted to let you know I’m over all of that now.

Scavenger

 

I don’t know what it is that I put in our meals but the one thing you can be sure of is this. If I throw any out for the birds, our neighbour’s cats will come round and fill up.

On the menu today was a mix of rice, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms and onions. No meat !!! As you can see from the photo, the latest scavenger is not some skinny, starving waif.

Dan Dare Space Control Radio Station


As a child, in the 1950s, I always wanted a Dan Dare Space Control Radio Station. Two-way radio, morse key, morse decoder, searchlight, planet finder, everything a budding space cowboy could ever want. DDEvery Christmas, there it was in the mail order catalogues, teasing me. Looking back from our technology heavy era the toy looks very quaint. Back then, with man on the brink of space travel, it was “the” must have toy. However, for me, it was never to be. My disappointment was always short lived as other gifts, such as the huge fort, home made by my dad, would overshadow and displace any thoughts of radio stations. Until the next time.

Russian Pirates


jollyroger

I have been watching the news unfold in the Crimea, with a distinct feeling of unease, as Putins pirate army invokes a “soft annexation” of the Crimea. I would call it theft.

jackbootsMeanwhile we in the west, in total impotence, watch on .

Does Putin seem bothered by threats of sanctions ?

I don’t think so, after all what can we do. We are powerless to intervene, and all that Obama, Cameron and the other politicians can do, is spout toothless rhetoric.

Who said piracy was restricted to the South China Sea ?
