Everyone is very familiar (according to Hollywood) of the inevitable melt down of the planet that is coming with the developments of AI. Of course, it all ends with the likes of Skynet or the Matrix kicking the crap out of the human race. But, don’t worry just yet there’s always man or machine, a Kianu or Arnie, there to save us all at the closing moments of humankind. Continue reading
- London – a proper city
- Windsor – has a castle
- Reading – pretty gruesome but it’s not Slough or Swindon
- Newbury – got a racecourse
- Maidenhead – at least it’s on the Thames
- Henley-on-Thames – you can go rowing
- Farnborough – they have an air show
- Wokingham – not all that but it’s better than Slough
- …just about anywhere else!
It’s no secret that I’m not the biggest fan of Twitter, but of late I’ve conceded and started using it – largely because I can feed it elsewhere and it doesn’t require much attention – and it’s another means of getting the message out when I do my next charity walk in the spring.
However I am, and always have been, a massive fan of Dragon’s Den (followed it since the first series and would list it amongst my favourite shows) and despite my own policy of not following ‘celebs’ decided to have a look at what they are up to. Let’s be honest about Twitter – for most of us ‘mere mortals’, I stand by my previous statements, it’s pretty pointless for anything other than observing. For celebrities and news organisations who naturally draw followers it’s a great way to get their message out – and only the real weirdos and Twitter Geeks expect any kind of interaction.
To be fair the Dragons have entertained me, have some interesting things to say – and all have very noticeable styles. Here’s my take on that: Continue reading
These questions were (allegedly) posted on an Australian Tourism Website and the answers are the actual responses by the website officials, who obviously have a sense of humour. Debatable whether they are actually true, but they are without doubt funny!

Q: Does it ever get windy in Australia ? I have never seen it rain on TV, how do the plants grow? ( UK ).
A: We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around watching them die.
Q: Will I be able to see kangaroos in the street? ( USA )
A: Depends how much you’ve been drinking.
Q: I want to walk from Perth to Sydney – can I follow the railroad tracks? ( Sweden )
A: Sure, it’s only three thousand miles, take lots of water.
Q: Are there any ATMs (cash machines) in Australia ? Can you send me a list of them in Brisbane , Cairns, Townsville and Hervey Bay ? ( UK )
A: What did your last slave die of?

Go get him boys!
Nice to see the back of the murdering bastard after 42 years. Whilst you’re at it can you please do us Brits a favour and save a couple of bullets for al-Megrahi if you find him please?
I hope the future has great things in store for a free Libya and its people!
You’re with me when I sleep, you’re with me when I wake;
You’re with me in the daytime, and with me in the dark;
With me in the fields and with me in the park.
Not a care for what I say, and not a care for what I do;
You’d be still beside me, if I was a total twat.
Why the fcuk – would anyone want a bloody cat!
