Escalator Terror.

Hey;

.

This is just to help cheer you up, as today’s sad post may have left you somewhat depressed.

.

I know that such things always upset me, although we obviously need to know about such things in order to prevent them!

.

Anyway, I thought you might like to see what happens when inexperienced people, unused to modern technology, use an escalator for the very first time.

.

The action takes place in Uzbekistan.

The customers in a shopping centre, attempting to use the infernal device, were recorded upon a nearby camera.

.

.

Needless to say, that is a very popular video on YouTube.
Having said that, they are not the only ones!

.

So, enjoy your day.

Is Cheap Meat Worth The Cost!

Hey.

.

I thought about a bacon sandwich this morning but I just could not actually do it.

I think that I may end up a bloody vegetarian through the sheer shame of the way we allow farm animals to be treated on the way to the dinner table.

Why, for the sake of even more profit, do we allow such cruelty to continue to take place.

.

In recent footage shown in the media, taken in a Somerset farm a month or so ago by Viva campaigners, there was harrowing footage which revealed the dreadful treatment of baby pigs who were not more than a week old.

.

They are shown being handled, with no anesthetics, while their teeth are cut off with pliers and their tails are clipped off with scissors, and it is presented as the shocking stuff it is.

.

But hey, it is nothing new….this next film was uploaded a year ago to show the treatment given to piglets bred for meat, seemingly by the actual breeders!

Processing the pigs.

Why is this allowed!

.

Sadly, callous and inhumane treatment is prevalent in many areas of animal farming and in most countries.

.

.
.
Good enough for children in America?


.

Re-Veal the horror.

.

I won’t show any more, although there is a mountain of evidence to choose from.

Tom Waits Rocks.

Hi,

I felt in a strange mood recently….and went back to an old favourite of mine.
There is really no-one else quite like him at all.
.

So, shall we start with a Christmas card that someone received!

A Little Sly Training.

Hi,
.

How is life treating you then.
.

Were you looking forward to Christmas, or were you worrying about all of those extra pounds that you would gain before the festivities are over with.

.

And have you!

Is losing it your New Year Resolution!

.

Well, you know, your fate and your physique are really in your own hands….just like it is for my own friends, who sit around complaining about double chins and muffin tops while necking large glasses of cold white wine etc,  and nibbling away at the tops of muffins!

.

Of course, there is always the very easy alternative of doing exactly as you  please, and then correcting the damage with liposuction and other instant cures.

.

It is like reading about the superstars who are living the jet set lifestyle. and being jealous of them having such an easy life.

But. when you look at people like Sylvester Stallone, and the hard training that they do to maintain themselves. it really shows the discipline that they must adhere to in order to stay at the top of the tree.
.
Here we see the most admirably muscled Sly doing his training …. at the grand old age of 62.
.

.

All I can say is Whoaaaah.
And of course the answer would be ‘Yes’ …. Ohhhh …. you don’t get many like him to the pound!!!

If you liked the music, it was Rob Zombie singing Dragula.

Hey,

THIS is the night!!!

.

But hey, do we still think that blondes really will have the most New Year’s fun?

.

Yet another blonde moment.

What do you think!

Here We Go Again.

Hi,

.

Here we go again.

What on earth is it with trains, and train passengers, these days!

.

In this clip taken just before Christmas, we have another strange incident on a London train.

During this particular incident, we see a passenger wearing headphones, who is grooving to the beat of his own drum.

.

He is obviously providing amusement to the his fellow passengers, as he obliviously dances to the beat.

.

Suddenly, another gentleman who was previously eating a pie, is seen to crouch down behind the dancer, with his hands out, while the train is preparing to leave Leytonstone station, and it is obvious he is planning to shove the unwary man off.

.

Sure enough, as the announcer warns that the door is closing, the crouching man shoves the other man hard in the back, to drive him out of the door, just as the train leaves the station….to a chorus of ‘No, No No’ from the other travellers.

Afterwards there is much laughter.

.

.

Hopefully the poor man did not end up falling under the train or being otherwise injured by his sudden removal from the carriage.

.

Now that wasn’t very Christmassey, was it!!!

Abuse On The Bus

Hello,

.

Sadly, not everyone is feeling ‘ full of the spirit of Christmas and goodwill towards men’,

.

Over the last few months there have been many agressive rants being filmed on our trains, trams, buses and our streets, in some cases accompanied by physical violence.

.

Here is one such incident, which took place on the no.29 travelling the Wood Green to trafalgar route in London in December.

It was reported as being about 10pm.
.

.

What on earth is going on in Britain nowadays…. why is everyone so angry!

What do you think about it?

Poem: You Never Forget About It.

You Never Forget About It.

.

.

I know that old lady.

The one with the two sticks

And lots of untidy white hair

Ordered to stay under that nasty felt hat.

She used to be my infant school teacher.

We all called her ‘Miss’

And she smacked our hands

With a hard wood ruler.

She might be old now

But she still scares the pants off me.

Amazing What Some People Throw Out!!

Hi,

.

Well, you can find some very strange things in the garbage.

.

This week, a Canadian garbage truck was doing it’s collecting in outlying disticts before heading back into downtown Vancouver.

.

Imagine the surprise when the people in that city suddenly see the head of a bear popping up out of the back of the lorry.

Somehow, during the round, a young brown bear which had probably decided that he would find a good meal inside a dumpster had ended up amongst the refuse in the collection truck.

.

Eventually, expert advice was sought, which resulted in the animal being given a tranquilizer.

At this point a brave officer climbed up the back of the vehicle and managed to coax the animal down.

.

Luckily, as a result of having availled itself of a good feed, and everyone being calm with it, the animal was accommodating with the rescuers.

.

It was then given a tag, before being returned to the upper Squamish Valley area.
Ahhhhhh!
