a couple of items to brighten the day ahead

Look, the darn fact is, guns are just too dangerous to leave in the hands of responsible, law abiding civilian gun owners.  Can’t have that ya know.
Just look at these examples of violent lawlessness and ask ….

erm, wait a minute.  No guns involved?

Never mind.


A former RAF sergeant had an argument with his wife. He’s 76 btw.
Well, according to the papers, he lost his cool and “bludgeoned” her with a garden gnome before stabbing her to death.

Must have been one hell of an argument.
He told the police he, “just lost it.”

He has been sentenced to four years in jail.
Doesn’t seem like much for what he did but hell. At least it wasn’t a gun which would have drawn more jail time for certain.

Anyway, the poor guy is a victim too as at the exact time of the killing,
he was suffering from a “DEPRESSIVE EPISODE.”
( Preston Crown Court) You couldn’t make this up.

In a bit of other gun related news.  Oh. No gun involved.
That’s okay then.

A young male is reported to have been stabbed ….
In the entrance to a court building yesterday.
A gang of ‘yoots’ was seen running from the scene.

The young black man, it says in my paper, was in the security entrance to Inner London Crown Court.

He was treated at the scene and his injuries were not life threatening.

Yeah I can hear the anti gun folks screaming, but if he’d been shot he’d be dead.  Yeah, so?

In conclusion and way off topic, if I ever had one, a HUGE Thank You to Vilmar who gave me a new expression I had never heard or thought of before.
See?  When you pay attention to smart people you learn new things.

Ground Apes!

  1. Yes, it’s called a racist term.

    Nobody is allowed to remark how any black person is, or resembles, any lower primate. Believing that black people look like monkeys, apes, chimpanzees plays into that old “black people are less evolved” meme from well over a century ago, that denies them their essential humanity.

    On the other hand, because humans and chimpanzees are so closely related, it is not uncommon for any of us to sometimes look like them, and vice versa. However, the racial bias presumption precludes the comparison to blacks in any form. Just ask Howard Cosell.

    Thus it was perfectly fine to constantly refer to our previous president as Chimpy McBush, because he did look a bit chimp like from time to time. But it is outright racism to make a similar observation about Michelle Obama.

    This is because everyone has a stick up their ass the size of an oak tree, and can not just chill the fuck out and learn to relax and laugh at themselves.

    It also means that there are just some things you don’t say in public.  But I have to admit, the punchline to the Tarzan joke that arrived in my inbox was funny as hell ...

  2. CRUNCHY,But ya.
    You have no idea( actually you all do I’m sure) how often I hear black men and women ( usually the younger women) say Nigga in every other word of their conversations with each other. It basically means Fool in the context they use it so it is what it is.
    But, considering they got stuck with,as they see it, the” Wrong Tone” I guess we White Folk should just let sleeping dogs lie and let that one slide. Happy Days

  3. Ever wonder if Coke really has COKE in it? Wonder no more:
    The Coca-Cola we know today still contains coca—but the ecgonine alkaloid is removed from it. Perfecting that extraction took until 1929, so before that there were still trace amounts of coca’s psychoactive elements in Coca-Cola. As Dominic Streatfield describes in Cocaine: An Unauthorized Biography, the extraction is now done at a New Jersey chemical processing facility by a company called Stepan. In 2003, Stepan imported 175,000 kilograms of coca for Coca-Cola. That’s enough to make more than $200 million worth of cocaine. They refer to the coca leaf extract simply as “Merchandise No. 5.”
    The facility Is guarded.

    Go Figure.
    cool grin
