I have heard it said that if we stop paying massive bonuses to bankers in the UK they will all leave and work abroad. Firstly I couldn’t give a stuff if they do leave and secondly I think we’ve been duped. Apparently there are nearly 2,500 millionaire bankers in the UK and less than 200 in France and in Germany. It sounds to me like they’re all coming to the UK. So let me finish by saying FUCK OFF YOU BANKERS!
The male flea is possibly aware of tantric sex, well he certainly needs a lot of time to prepare anyway. Apparently it takes him up to eight hours to unfold all the parts of his penis. I wonder if that time counts as foreplay or just a tantric wank?
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 22,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
I have never liked wasps and indeed I have never thought that they had any value or purpose. But in fact they are remarkably useful. For almost every insect that we think of as a real pest there is a wasp that has evolved to keep it under control. This can be just by eating their prey or laying eggs in the bodies of their insect prey in a parasitical way. I feel moderately better about wasps now, but I’ll still never like them!
With all the news in the press about the forthcoming Monty Python reunion I thought that it would be appropriate to do a post about the Pythons. I’m sure that any fan of Monty Python’s Flying Circus will be very familiar with the classic catch phrase from the show; “And now for something completely different“. However did you know that the phrase was coined by 60s Blue peter presenter Christopher Trace and later taken up by the Python team?
Did you ever wonder why Doctor Who‘s TARDIS was externally a UK Police Box? well wonder no more; apparently the TARDIS (which stands for Time And Relative Dimension In Space) was built with a ‘chameleon circuit‘ which enabled it to blend in with its surroundings. However that circuit broke in the 1960s in Shoreditch, London. So now it will always be stuck as a Police Box.
The first Police box was installed in 1877 just a year after the telephone was invented by Alexander Graham Bell. Until the 1960s most of them were coloured red. Blue was introduced in the early 1960s. They were phased out around 1970. Although some UK cities have experimented with bringing them back in some form during recent years.
Apparently all the characters in the Simpsons have four fingers on each hand except for one; that’ll be the one and only God, he has five fingers on each hand. I wonder what the likes of Richard Dawkins and Charles Darwin would make of that. I also wonder whether God had a (five-fingered) hand in the show becoming the longest running cartoon show in TV history?
