Bad day for a Bad Hair Day.


Today the crew of the International Space Station spoke to the Queen who is currently visiting the USA. I can't speak for anybody else, but if I was going to speak to the Queen of England I'd atleast comb my hair....

Its Magic...

In a previous incarnation I used to be into magic and spent a hefty dollar chasing the latest in the field. Just out of the blue I thought I'd checkout an old favourite magic (shop) website where I found this little promo video of a new DVD called "The Wedding DVD".

Ignore the fact that its not in english but how does he get the cards to stand up and move like that?!?!

(ok so I actually have a far idea how he gets the cards to move like that but still how does he get it stand up!?!? And no I can't tell you how the cards move without him touching it - and he doesnt blow or use magnets or anything of the sort)

Good use of Tax Payers Money

In the UK people who own a TV pay a license fee to support the BBC. Its a user pays system.

In Australia everyone helps to support the ABC via a portion of their taxes.

I wonder if the Australia population knows that their tax goes to support such programs as:

Grossology: Fartzilla
Friday 20/4/07. 5:30pm - 6:00pm
A villain makes everyone in town fart and then gathers all the gas to fuel a giant robot called Fartzilla.

Behold the might of Fartzilla:

Damn its windy.

You know you live in a building that was built by the cheapest contractors when the corners of the windows aren't at right angles. Not really a problem until the wind picks up and starts to howl from the small cracks in the window frame!

And don't get me started on the walls.. which are all flat - which is ok until the tiler used bubble gum to glue the tiles to walls.

bah hum bug.

German Engineering... and other stuff.




 

And you might enjoy this series of commercials from the noodle site.

peace will come to the world when the people have enough to eat

(Friday 5th January 2007)

Regular readers will know of my love of Nissin noodles. So it is with a heavy heart that I must announce that the founder of my beloved Nissin noodle, OSAKA (Kyodo) Momofuku Ando, has died aged 96.

He invented the instant noodle after seeing a line of solders (during World War 2) waiting to buy some black market ramen. It was the realisation that "peace will come to the world when the people have enough to eat" according to Nissin Food Products Co.

ANDO, may your noodle never be short.
Your broth always hot.
and your stomach never empty.
Long live your instant noodle.
