New horizon   27/9/2013

Fascinating. Makes you wonder how often this happens and what it contributes to climate change.

Barely half an hour after they were jolted by a major earthquake on Tuesday, people of the Pakistani coastal town of Gwadar had another shock when they saw a new island emerge in the sea, just over a kilometre from the shore.

Sacked   25/9/2013

Normally, I don’t miss too many interesting local news reports. This one seems to have slipped by most of us, particularly those who pay a lot of attention to Catholic and carnal matters.

Melbourne priest Greg Reynolds has not only been defrocked, but also excommunicated by the Catholic Church over his support for women priests and homosexuals. The order came directly from Vatican under the authority of Pope Francis, who just recently said that the Church focuses too much on gays and abortion.

NEW YORK, Sept. 23 (UPI) — British rocker Mick Jagger will be a great-grandfather when his 21-year-old granddaughter Assisi gives birth next year, the New York Post reported.

Spouse bouts   20/9/2013

More laugh out loud stuff:

When I got home last night, my wife demanded that I take her someplace expensive. So, I took her to a gas station. And that’s how the fight started…..

I tried to talk my wife into buying a case of Miller Light for $14.95. Instead, she bought a jar of cold cream for $7.95. I told her the beer would make her look better at night than the cold cream. And that’s how the fight started…..

My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table. My wife asked, ‘Do you know her?’ ‘Yes,’ I sighed, ‘She’s my old girlfriend. I understand she took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn’t been sober since.’ ‘My God!’ says my wife. ‘Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?’ And that’s how the fight started…..

Devine intervention   19/9/2013

Miranda Devine doesn’t hold back. And she’s on the money.

We’ve just suffered through a three-year experiment of quota queens in charge of the government and what an unmitigated disaster that was, with the objective result that Labor scored its lowest primary vote in a century, despite swapping back to an even more hopeless man at the end.
So criticism of Abbott’s cabinet lineup is shameless hypocrisy from the party which set up its most formidable female politician to fail and then tore her down when she did.

All this lefty whining drowns out the fact that Labor wouldn’t even nominate a female for the Opposition leader’s job.

Court red-handed   18/9/2013

Put it down to a misprint: The court reporter obviously meant to write “bench”, not “beach”.

When asked if it was now acceptable to masturbate in public if you don’t direct it towards a specific individual the prosecutor said it was “okay.”
“The district court has made a judgement on this case. With that we can conclude that it is okay to masturbate on the beach. The act may be considered to be disorderly conduct.”

Climate clangers revealed   16/9/2013

As many a wise person has predicted: the truth will out.

THE Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s latest assessment reportedly admits its computer drastically overestimated rising temperatures, and over the past 60 years the world has in fact been warming at half the rate claimed in the previous IPCC report in 2007

This letter in The Oz dishes it out immaculately:

Over the billions of years our planet has been evolving, it has been forming continents, oceans, shifting plates, and was suffering ice ages separated by warming periods well before the arrival of humans and industry.
Against that scale, the period since we arrived is only a few years, our industry only months and the records on which climate change claims are based are only hours old.
If the IPCC could step back and marvel at the majesty of nature, it might encourage a measure of humility in man, allowing some reason instead of limiting its mental activity to jumping to conclusions.

Gone and ungrieved   

Unfond memories:

The obituary begins by saying she ‘spent her lifetime torturing in every way possible. While she neglected and abused her small children, she refused to allow anyone else to care or show compassion towards them’.

It goes on: ‘When they became adults she stalked and tortured anyone they dared to love. Everyone she met, adult or child was tortured by her cruelty and exposure to violence, criminal activity, vulgarity, and hatred of the gentle or kind human spirit.

‘On behalf of her children whom she so abrasively exposed to her evil and violent life, we celebrate her passing from this earth and hope she lives in the after-life reliving each gesture of violence, cruelty, and shame that she delivered on her children.

Seems God did give rock ‘n roll to him   

What a wonderfully changing world. A crazy rocker who invoked righteous wrath and warnings of damnation from religionists in the 70s and 80s has come to the defence of US sport’s most public Christian:
Has polarizing football player Tim Tebow gotten a raw deal in the press because of his religious beliefs? And would he be treated more respectfully if he were not Christian, and specifically, Muslim? Gene Simmons thinks so.

“He’s got a religious passion, as well he should, we’re in America,” the KISS frontman told Radio.com earlier this week. ”He’s proud to be a Christian, what’s wrong with that? And yet, with sports media and pop culture media, they make fun of his religion. Really? In America? If he was wearing a burqa, they wouldn’t dare say anything [editor's note: only Muslim women wear burqas]. But if you’re a Christian, you get to be picked on? What the hell? The guy’s got family values.
