A Doer Upper ?


For some time now, I’ve been considering getting myself a boat. Partly as a project to fill my time and also so that I can have some fun and go fishing.

So, I sort of stumbled on this beauty and thought that it would be an ideal “doer upper”.

I’ve already thought of some names, Mud Skipper, Kelpie or maybe Slick.

What do you think, should I go for it ?

Idiotics – Aussie Style

Harley Davidson


harleyThe inventor of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle, Arthur Davidson, died and went to heaven.
At the gates, St. Peter told Arthur. ‘Since you’ve been such a good man and your motorcycles have changed the world, your reward is, you can hang out with anyone you want to in heaven.’Arthur thought about it for a minute and then said, ‘I want to hang out with God.’
St. Peter took Arthur to the Throne Room and introduced him to God. God recognized Arthur and commented, ‘Okay, so you were the one who invented the Harley-Davidson motorcycle? ‘
Arthur said, ‘Yeah, that’s me…’
God commented:
‘Well, what’s the big deal in inventing something that’s pretty unstable, makes noise and pollution and can’t run without a road?’
Arthur was a bit embarrassed, but finally spoke, ‘Excuse me, but aren’t you the inventor of woman?’
God said, ‘Ah, yes.’
‘Well,’ said Arthur, ‘professional to professional, you have some major design flaws in your invention !

  1. There’s too much inconsistency in the front-end suspension
  2. It chatters constantly at high speeds
  3. Most rear ends are too soft and wobble about too much
  4. The intake is placed way too close to the exhaust
  5. The maintenance costs are outrageous!!!!

‘Hmmmmm, you may have some good points there,’ replied God, ‘hold on.’
God went to his Celestial supercomputer, typed in a few words and waited for the results. The computer printed out a slip of paper and God read it.
‘Well, it may be true that my invention is flawed,’ God said to Arthur, ‘but according to these numbers,
…..more men are riding my invention than yours…!!!’.

There’s Nothing Left To Say


I’m not having a pop at One Direction.

As far as I know, I have never heard a One Direction track and have never seen them perform on TV, so I really have no view on them as a band. I do have a general aversion to the “boy band” phenomenon and the screaming fanatics that follow them.

All that aside, this video was too good not to share.

Enjoy
