… and takes on many forms.

The images have a similar theme: a red Routemaster bus against a greyscale Westminster Palace background. Both shots of familiar London landmarks and fairly innocuous as such images go. At least you would think so.
The image at the top is the intellectual property of Temple Island Collection (TIC), a company that produces souvenir [...]
I can’t agree with all Sir Richard has to say here but it’s a good start and it is good that such a bearded twat notable businessman has said what everyone else is thinking. Here is my take. I guess I could go into a heck of a lot on drugs but I could also [...]
If you’re married and DO NOT want to get divorced but are interested in having an affair, then we want you to understand that You are NOT alone!
There are thousands of married people in your city that feel the same way that you do.
Not Newt Gingrich I hope! That would be both cruel and unusual. [...]
Anyone who knows the works of Sir Terry will be aware of the innovations of Leonard of Quirm and his complete inability to give them snappy names. Lord Vetinari ought to tell him just to put an “i” in front and Jobs done if you see what I mean.
It would appear the European science [...]
This is a new one on me…

Series of meetings have been held over the past 7 months with the secretary
general of the United Nations Organization. This ended 3 days ago. It is

Take 2, from the 2′nd best Etta James, ever
Having attended many parties, of many sorts, and mixed with many different groups of people over many years and in many cities, I plump for B. Every time.
The phrase was used on the TV recently (we were watching a cooking show) and I asked which musical it came from. So my wife and I had a disagreement. She posited “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” and I thought of “Mary Poppins” (for some reason*). Obviously she was correct but a Google (.co.uk) search revealed [...]

4. How much does the earth weigh?
5. How do aeroplanes stay in the air?
6. Why is water wet?
7. How do I do long division?

There is all matter of drivel like regimental kilts but this is my baby.
Now all we gotta figure is how to get it to Manchester and where to get a brace of Rolls Royce Avons. Probably need a bit more work but I have a set of posidrives…
As it’s the T5 there is a second [...]
There is endless complaint (and has been for years - from the msm and so on) about some rich people in the United States “only” paying 15% of their income to the Federal government (because they pay capital gains tax), whereas other people can pay as much as 35% (as they pay income tax).

Everyone knows Barack Obama is the first black president of the USA*. But what is his other first as president?
Hint: It really doesn’t matter to his presidency. Just a curious thing.
*Well, actually mixed race but whatever.
Our little Muslim buddies are at it again folks, when are they never you ask? and you would be right.
Now what is the main thrust of an Atheist Society do you think? Reverence and respect for those who believe in the Sky Fairy? Or debunking the whole damn scam? Discuss politely and with no reference [...]
Maybe you noticed this story around and about this morning:
Eastman Kodak Co, which invented the hand-held camera and helped bring the world the first pictures from the moon, has filed for bankruptcy protection, capping a prolonged plunge for one of America’s best-known companies.
No doubt there’ll be a lot of sic-transit-gloria-mundi-ing going on over the next [...]
