More cartoon tomfoolery

It's nice to see the Aussies are prepared to publish cartoons taking the piss out of themselves.

In a similar way the muslim cartoon debacle could have been deflated by taking ownership to the offending items.

Oh, what's that - the aussies aren't owning up to it?

Oops!

So long and good riddance

The world will be a safer place with the announcement of the death of Caspar Whine-and-cheese-burger, the out of control defence secretary of the Reagan administration.

To call this man a megalomaniac would be a gross understatement, the man was in charge of $US6 Billion A WEEK of defence expenditure during peacetime while he was US Defence secretary, a grand total of more than $US 1 Trillion!

The architect of the potentially apocalyptic Star Wars program SDI, $US 50 Billion later still not operational, could well have brought about the end of our planet as we know it. To credit him with helping to bring about the end of the Soviet Bloc is simply bollocks, he would much rather have blown it apart.

One thing to come out of all this is the Global Positioning System (GPS) the positional framework of Star Wars that has changed to way we navigate inside our world. The Mapguy is surprised that geospatial people have not blogged about the significance of this already.

Is that worth 1 Trillion? Maybe

Good riddance to one of the world's most dangerous men.

Auntay sells out

Auntay has sold her soul to Richard Hammond. Yes, he of Top Gear fame.

Rumours are that Richard turned up in Lincoln in his new Porsche 911 Carrera and Auntay promptly through away her engagement ring and leapt over the side of the vehicle, into the driver's seat, shoving poor Richard into the passenger seat.
