on the drip feed of the usual excuses...

cash-strapped

I’ll keep this brief, because there’s only one thing you can say about the events of the past 24 hours: what a complete shocker.

Around 30 years ago, Mad magazine did this short social study of Donald Trump... Now you know...

It has taken four years for the government and the nbn company to finally admit what many people have been warning for since the very beginning of the change in NBN plans from FttH (fibre to the home) to FttN (fibre to the node).

Why has New Zealand got fibre to the home, mostly renewable energy, the Bledisloe Cup and a charismatic leader and we have not?

‘Provocative adverts for Kremlin-owned television channel’ is the familiar opening for the Times’ latest knickers in a twist article on RT, as the Murdoch-owned broadsheet joined the angry scrum to condemn a tongue-in-cheek advertising campaign on the London Underground.

A notorious Russian internet “troll factory” spent about $2.3 million during the 2016 election cycle to meddle in US politics, paying the salaries of 90 “US desk” employees who helped wage disinformation campaigns via social media that reached millions of Americans. The operation also contacted US activists directly and offered them thousands of dollars to organize protests on divisive issues, including race relations.

global warming

As the Americans blame the communists and Russia to have invented “global warming” to bugger up the US economy which is based on burning fossil fuels as if there was no tomorrow, some Russian newspapers are blaming the USA for having created the concept of global warming to bugger up the Russian economy — as a mythical weapon aimed at curtailing Russian oil and gas exports. Overall, quietly, the Russian government knows that global warming is increasingly problematic and the government is taking steps to defend against climate change. The Russian scientists are no dummies like the US politicians who waste a lot of hot air with brainfarts.

We are living in the age of deceit, fast becoming the era of imbecility. Our Trumble is getting the bug of invention and in a rare moment of lucidity he declared that E = MC2. Wow. Here he explains that E (Economy) equals M (Muck) multiplied by C (Coal) powered to the square. And we get screwed...

Before Madame Bovary and Lady Chatterley’s Lover, there were the Memoirs of a Lady of Quality. These “memoirs” by Frances, the Viscountess, Vane, published in 1751, were somewhat hidden inside one of Tobias Smollett’s novels The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle... In her “memoirs” the Viscountess thoroughly mocked contemporary social and moral conventions.

We should not go pass this perfect explanation why Hillary lost the vote to the Dumb One. 

 

This excellent social study, published in Mad Magazine more than 42 years ago, using the movie Hairspray as a background to its research, is still a perfect demonstration on how the Yankee mind works: rob everyone, fuck everyone but stand at attention when the US flag is raised on a flag pole.
