it's a long way there

There are people who, when you ask them how things are going, invariably reply, "gettin' there."

To which I invariably reply, "once you're there can you tell me what it's like" or something similarly inane.

It never fails to not crack me up.

Anyway, I don't know where I'm going but you can certainly tell where I've been.

back in the ussr

The Beatles' tongue-in-cheek wag at 60's US-centric pop suddenly gets turned arse about.

What do you reckon this is about?

Good for the Citizens? How does puttinhg people in jail for committing no crime, or taking their jobs away, actually help them? I really want to know that answer. Just think if your Government did that to you...
and this?

The EU is little more than a fascist dictaorship...they think you even cannot be trusted to by asprin or paracetamol, you have to buy it in packs of 10.
No, actually it's about
Obama's health insurance Bill.

Did you guess? Pretty surreal, no?

bad english

A little funny for youse. Hope youse can read it.

losing my religion

Here's someone who just lost theirs - reads like it's not the only thing they've lost:

I guess it didn't get by the censors, but I ask again, why does England still hang on to the colonies she took from Catholic Countries (Gibraltar, Malvinas, Northern Ireland) whilst abandoning the rest -- including Hong Kong and Zimbabwe to Communists? Do Britain's ruling Protestant elites really consider communists to be preferable to Catholics?As for the Malvinas-Falklands row, the US should be neutral. No more wars, and constitutional government, is the way to our recovery. I think that would probably work for the UK too.
It never ceases to amaze me how easily people can use cliches so willy-nilly interpret data so randomly to suit their particular world-view*.

I'd give this one a label from sPeak you're bRanes, such as Retired Colonels, Self-appointed Sages and one of my favourites, Curtain-twitchers (my mother was one of those).

Anyway speaking of SYB, can you hold your sides while you plumb your way through
this grand example, which includes writing in Klingon, increasingly heated exchanges on postmodernism (and credentialism) and many examples of very vulgar language. In one thread!

Too much workeee, not enough sleepeee, failing interest in bloggee.

*Where world-view=obsession.
