The KFC Double Down Burger

I first read about the KFC Double Down burger about a year ago on the Internet.  It gained a certain measure of noteriety for being one of those ridiculously excessive and unhealthy American fast food meals you read about and can’t quite believe exists in this day and age.  For the uninitiated, it is a bacon and fried cheese sandwich ...

Strange Old Timey Photos

I feel compelled to share this link with you all.  It’s a collection of unrelated black and white photos of people and animals from many decades ago.  I have no idea how this collection of images was compiled.  I just know that I found the pictures creepy, fascinating and very funny. The little fella on the right cracks me up.  ...

I Write Like

There’s a rather nifty website here called I Write Like which does an analysis of your writing style and compares you to a famous author.  I took a sample of my own writing using some text out of a blog entry titled ‘The Dinner Party‘ (June 2009) and the result was: I write like Arthur Conan Doyle I Write Like ...

The Opposition Leader: Tony Abbott

When it comes to politicans and their policies, does it matter whether they genuinely believe in them?  With Prime Minister Julia Gillard it seems pretty clear that a significant proportion of her policies exist specifically because they will increase the likelihood of her re-election and do not stem from any personal feeling one way or another.  How else to explain ...

Boat People

Nothing stimulates the electorate like playing this card: John Howard first played this political move in his second term as Prime Minister.  When he incorrectly asserted that aslyum seekers on the boat were throwing their children overboard in a ploy to ensure their rescue and entry in Australia it contributed significantly towards his re-election in November 2001 with an increased ...

World Cup 2010: The Final

2010worldcup

I came into that game as an impartial viewer but that was some seriously cynical shit from the Netherlands so I was pretty happy to see Spain crowned as the eventual winner. And that wraps up the FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa.  Next stop:  Brazil in 2014.

“The next Australian federal election will elect members of the 43rd Parliament of Australia and must be held on or before 16 April 2011. The election will be called following the dissolution or expiry of the current Parliament. The current Prime Minister, Julia Gillard of the Labor Party, has indicated the election will be held in 2010.” I thought it ...

World Cup 2010: The Netherlands vs Brazil, Ghana vs Uruguay

2010worldcup

Also: It definitely felt like this pair of games got the World Cup back on track.  Two absolutely cracking games full of drama with heroes and villains on both sides.  There couldn’t be a greater contrast between the two red card recipients:  Suarez who is probably a national hero now for his last gasp sacrifice which kept Uruguay in the ...
