Holidays…

Well, ladies and pervs, I thought I’d post something that I stumbled across this week that was unexpected. Hopefully, this will take your mind off us getting nuked, or having your house implode in value, or your rental explode in value, or your acquaintances dropping dead from a vaccine, or whatever else is being pushed … Read more

The Speech

September 20, 2022 So, I just watched Putin’s speech live on France 24. Probably not the exact translation, as they were doing it live, and in this case some nuances might be lost, but the gist was nevertheless clear. Here are my reflections on what was said. First of all, the speech was not aimed … Read more

Links that dropped on me randomly

Now, I do not subscribe to the validity of these, although Google-related stuff is certainly a food for thought. Thought you might like to scroll through. Link 1: How the CIA made Google https://medium.com/insurge-intelligence/how-the-cia-made-google-e836451a959e Warning, loooooooong read! Link 2 (part 2 of the above): Why Google made the NSA https://medium.com/insurge-intelligence/why-google-made-the-nsa-2a80584c9c1 Warning, loooooooong read! Link 3: … Read more

Jokes

Read a quip by Coming re: Tasmania, and everyone being max 2 degrees of separation, and thought maybe we can exchange some of our favourite insensitive jokes. Certified to offend, as humour was supposed to be back in the day. What do you think? Politics, religion, family, anything goes. Or is it too risky? I’ll … Read more

Australian Innovation

Recently, the ATO released statistics on 2019-2020 tax returns, and there are some encouraging trends in innovative ways our most productive owners and corporate entities maximise their profits while our tax receipts continue to grow. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2022-08-09/millionaires-paid-no-tax-and-richest-and-poorest-postcodes-ato/101312118 First, as a testament to the agility and forward-thinking policy of my government, post code 6011 (Cottesloe Beach and … Read more

Food!

I think we all can get behind the proposition that food is pretty allright. Having it is a bonus, not having it is a death sentence. Quality of food, however, is an entirely different subject. Especially if it has to be done on a clock – that’s why I despise Master Chef and the ilk, … Read more

To the Moon!

Wellie, since we have, over the past couple of weeks, gone down many a rabbit hole, I thought I will give you something to ponder over the weekend. Here in the most glorious state of Western Australia the weather is cold and rainy, so put on your gas heater, tuck in with a Port, or … Read more

Old Way, New Way

Don’t know if this esteemed board is familiar with Dmitry Orlov, but he is the guy who came onto the fringe scene about 15 years ago, and his claim to fame was an analysis of the 5 stages of collapse, as it took place in the USSR. In his earlier work, he defined these as: … Read more

Story Time MkII

So we are back to the second week of Story Time installment of this “satirical blog”. I invite you to share your own, as there is nothing better than looking back onto your own life stories and thinking “how in the f*** did this happen to me? At least I can tell the grand kids … Read more

Peachy Keen

A short post to convey my personal appreciation to Peachy for starting and running this site. Yes, you get what you pay for, with the site falling over at times and all, but! It is a welcomed platform where we can share our unfiltered opinions and views on all things that interest us as an … Read more

Stories

With apologies to the excellent Peachy, and their (I’m not sure of pronouns anymore) thread on dry July, which I plan to destroy later today, I thought we can share some stories from our life, work experience, or interactions that may cause the effect “hold my beer and watch this shit” type of a response. … Read more

Housing Crash!

So, over on that other fringe economic news site there has been a lot of housing crash fear porn pumped out due to imminent rise in interest rates beyond everyone’s wild imagination. Sydney houses are in free-fall already, dropping at 2.5% year-to-date, with Melbourne not too far behind with an equally horrid slide of 1.7%! … Read more

Prussia Gate

I came across this body of work yesterday evening. To say that I was fascinated with the volume of information, historical references and connections to today’s politics and policies would be an understatement. It is overwhelming, and I only made very small inroads into the writings. I am not vouching for the writers’ character, accuracy … Read more

Lettuce-Gate!

Anthony Albanese, Australian Prime Minister, just in the first month of his job, has already had to deal with a major crisis: shortages of lettuce. “Clearly, the unprecedented floods in QLD and NSW are the direct result of horrible climate policy by the Liberal Government that also caused a significant increase in everyday cost of … Read more

Evil Poutine

So we are 100 days into the Special Military Operation (SMO) by the forces of evil trying to take away the freedoms of an independent Ukraine. I thought it was a good time to take a look back and see what was and what may come. First, a bit of history. I do not pretend … Read more

WA Secedes!

Regardless of the outcomes of the election, I have taken the responsibility to ensure the future of my subjects to the controlled life and questionable prosperity. Based on the ease with which earlier mandates of triple-jab, quarantines, restrictions and the like were met with an overwhelming support of my loyal subjects, this new change will … Read more

I am done!

La comedia el finita! Not to reveal too much, I will try to give you all a glimpse of a life of an average Joe. But first, an always awesome Denis Leary song! Now, I am mid-40’s. Professional, lived in Europe, US and Australia. I am a normal, every day person that you see on … Read more
