Mwehugh Phweugh Meuuu Pmuuew


Ah, that's better.

Sorry... it took a while for my IQ and verbal reasoning to return to normal after watching this video.

BEWARE, this video is SO dumb it has a massively negative IQ rating. Just being in it's presence could cause your own IQ to drop by a hundred or more points. You have been warned.

Irish Joke

Paddy's doing well on "Who wants to be a Millionaire" He's got £500,000.

Chris Tarrant asks him the big question for 1 million pounds. "Paddy, for £1million, who was the great train robber? Was it: A, Ronnie Barker... B, Ronnie O'Sullivan... C, Ronnie Corbett or was it D, Ronnie Biggs?"

Paddy says, "Oi'll take de money, please Chris." Chris reminds him that he still has his 3 life lines left.

Paddy again says, "Nope. Oi'll take de money, please Chris" "You don't want to phone a friend?" asks Chris. "No t'anks. Oi'll take de money - dats me foinal answer."

"OK," says Chris, looking bemused, "give him a round of applause ladies and gentlemen. Paddy goes away with £500,000. However, before you go, you'll obviously want to know what the answer was Paddy?"

Paddy said, "No, yer alroight dere. Oi knew de answer anyway, t'anks Chris." "You knew it anyway! Are you mad?" asks Chris, "Are you mental?"

Paddy says, "Oi moight be mental Chris, but Oi'm no blooming grass!"

Take the money

OK - a puzzle of sorts.

You are presented with 2 envelopes and told that one envelope contains twice as many dollar bills as the other. You are allowed to keep one envelope only.

You pick an envelope, open it, and see that it contains $8.

You are allowed to switch envelopes. Should you?

This problem is more fascinating than it initially looks. If you want to peek at some possible solutions that could end up driving you crazy then see page 2 of MIT Lecture notes on mathematical proofs

Donny the Delicious Dolphin

I dare you to watch this example of how we treat other intelligent creatures. I hope it stimulates some thought on whether it is right to eat meat, or at least come up with a justification other than "but meat tastes good".


If you eat meat or fish, go on, watch it! Surely you're not hesitating?

My struggle

I've been keeping this blog up to date since the 9th of March 2007 and I'm beginning to wonder if the constant effort is worth it. It's beginning to take its toll on me. Maybe I'll continue, but only for my legions of fan out there.

Did you know?...

...that "Eastenders" is derived from the ancient greek word "Estenderon"

from "Esten" meaning a large heap or pile
and "Deron" meaning shite

so there you have it, "a pile of shite"

and on that note, welcome to my blog
