Splitting The Human Race. Your choice the Ruling Class. Or an Ugly Morlock.. A Re Run But interesting.

THE human race will one day split into two separate species, an attractive, intelligent ruling elite and an underclass of dim-witted, ugly goblin-like creatures. It has already begun 100,000 years into the future, sexual selection could mean that two distinct breeds of human will have developed. The human race will have reached its physical peak by the year 3000. After they reach their peak around the year 3000 humans will begin to regress. These humans will be between 6ft and 7ft tall and they will live up to 120 years. "Physical features will be driven by indicators of health, youth and fertility that men and women have evolved to look for in potential mates," suggesting that advances in cosmetic surgery and other body modifying techniques will effectively homogenise our appearance. Men will have symmetrical facial features, deeper voices and bigger penises, That will make a few of you want to live longer. Women will all have glossy hair, smooth hairless skin, large eyes an

Too Hot Yesterday, but today I lost my cool.

All due consideration given due to my advancing years, eldest son Chris and nearest and dearest both young in comparison to myself, Mowed the Lawn(Actually its just a mess of Misc grasses and weeds) Also the edges were trimmed and quite a lot of weeding done, and for this I thank you both although it is fact that you both share an equal responsibility concerning the matters mentioned. The general appearance was good; particularly the front of the house. The rear garden however, displayed a new feature namely something which would at first sighting to most people appear to be a U F O had recently parked there. This phenomena was created by Chris who spread the large boat cover on the grass when washed and left in the sun to cook the grass. One of my time wasting hobbies is my garden, Others may look but not interfere. However, Chris in his weeding frenzy pulled from the garden one of my prize winning vegetables thinking it was a weed, His apology fell on deaf ears. This morning taking a

Jewish Christmas.

One of my regular callers Frank Cooke from Barnados U/K has sent this to me, being I am very busy Frank can take care of any mud slinging from the Faith Industry followers. JEWISH CHRISTMAS As a teacher, Ms. Jones, was very curious about how each of her students celebrated Christmas. She called on young Patrick Murphy. "Tell me Patrick what do you do at Christmas Time?", she asked. Patrick addressed the class, "Well Ms. Jones, my twelve brothers and sisters and I go to midnight Mass and we sing hymns, then we come home very late and we put mince pies by the back door and hang up our stockings. Then all excited we go to bed and wait for Father Christmas to come with all our toys". "Very nice Patrick", she said. "Now, Jimmy what do you do at Christmas?" "Well, Ms. Jones, my sister and I also go to Church with Mum And Dad and we sing carols and we get home ever so late. We put cookies and milk by the chimney and we hang up our stockings. We har

I changed the coolant in 'Henry' our Ford Falcon on Thursday-- a hassle to say the least. It leaked yesterday meaning a bottom hose change. Our large boat being prepared for sale (can't cope with it anymore) was in our garage, (Aud$25,000 and its yours),,,, and the falcon was in the drive halfway from being fixed when it tiddled down with rain. It was eventually fixed adding small bruising and a broken fingernail to add to my getting soaked to the skin, Rosemary Say's "Well you won't have to cut the grass today dear but it will be a blessing in the rural community and help douse the bush fires, she then put 'Start you bastard' our mower back in the shed to prevent more anguish... oh no not as such; Chris our son appears with tidings of great joy indicating the freezer had died aged 23 and the defrosting was well advanced. After a rapid cleanup and a visit to the big H/N store our new Fisher & Paykel freezer made in New Zealand (Not ying tong land)..

Will Australia learn from this? I think not.

Denmark, a must read! This article could be seen as racist by some but on the otherhand it could also be seen as a reflection of our own reality that somehow our politicians refuse to see. The interpretation is up to the reader, however it is food for thought....j SALUTE to Denmark .. This could very well happen here on our Continent.... Susan MacAllen is a contributing editor for (FamilySecurity Salute the Danish Flag - it's a Symbol of Western Freedom By Susan MacAllen In 1978-9 I was living and studying in Denmark . But in 1978 - even in Copenhagen, one didn't see Muslim immigrants. The Danish population embraced visitors, celebrated the exotic, went out of its way to protect each of its citizens.

Cricket.... Cancer.... Hopefully a cure....Plus fun.

Probably has something to do with global warming. My chatty barber(I still have hair) a local sports analyst, asks, "I suppose you will be watching the England V South Africa Cricket test matches on the telly shortly, where are they playing"? There are many people like him in oz, some must wonder why the majority of festive greeting cards have a snow feature. Very few Australians, particularly slow moving Queenslanders would grasp the fact that the playing conditions for cricket in Britain(Three months of Northern summer) are no better than the off season for cricket in Australia approx Five months, the Aus cricket season being more than twice that of Britain. Rik pong ting continues to sport an unshaven dial partially hiding the frowns and smirks depending on the fortunes of the game and cock ups of his prone to cheating team mates. In one two hour session of play recently he was seen to have spat on hands fourteen times besides picking his nose and scratching his goolies an

Quietly going about their business but such a pity some smoke too.

Doing it quietly is not always the case arriving at that pinnacle of bliss, but there are somethings you just cant change and one of them is that human beings like making babies, so it is nice to know the majority of us are quietly going about the business of keeping the human race going, and it seems those who are leading the charge are women in western Sydney the city's true heartland. Now this is good for the economy and-more importantly-good for brothers and sisters. It's not scandalous or outrageous but behind closed doors across Sydney little miracles are being made every day. Unfortunately some women are making headlines for the wrong reasons, I suppose you might say this a spin off from a former post of mine "Kiss a non smoker and taste the difference"(Archives March 23-05). Most intelligent people who smoke are probably aware that smoking for the first thirty years of your adult life will reduce your life expectancy by up to ten years and also reduce hanky pa

I'll never understand this global warming thingy.

Down in the South Pacific Lies the land of Oz. Nowt to do with the Judy Garland's 1939 wizard of Oz movie, however, we do have heaps of yellow dust roads just as bumpy as brick ones. As for wizards in oz, we have an over supply drawn mostly from the ranks of failed lawyers, who now pose as leaders of the community. Besides being a country made up seven states, Oz is also a Continent which colloquially speaking occasionally becomes 'Incontinent' due to the diverse weather patterns. Oz is an upside down Country, where Christmas comes during the height of summer when locals get it off instead of rugging up. Our hot winds come from the North; so a southerly wind during the festive season can be a blessing. Officially, today is the first day of summer in Oz, I live on the beautiful Central Coast 120klm North of Sydney in New South Wales on the Pacific Ocean. Last night we required an extra blanket at 2..AM and the temp was 11 Cel at 8..AM. It is now 1030..AM and we have an outsi

Some Grand parents have not lost sight of what children need.

It is not only the Authorities who have to provide answers but parents themselves who blatantly ignore the real needs of children. Grand parents should not be the solution when bringing up children, Grannies have done their job and need to relax take it easy before they pop off to eternity. So why are many modern parents ignoring their responsibilities and neglecting their children like never before. It is simply because of the Us and Me syndrome society where many children are not considered a prime factor within the family and are ignored. A bit of keeping up with the Jones's goes back ages but its now like keeping up with the Forsythe-Silvertail-Smythes. A comfortable house - home indeed yes but a huge mansion to accommodate more than is required in preference to the finance being spent on parental guidance and education and affection, no. Thirty something couples have been dragged into the status cult where bigger and better looking houses have become the new magnet for visual

An excerpt from 'Waving goodbye to a thousand flies". Re Bruce.

Everyone suddenly is interested in Bruce and his legendry activities. Re comments on previous post. Here goes: Bruce. Another good-looking, thirty-something lady who had employed us for many years was always eager to give me a compliment. During one visit, she asked me to go to the bathroom with her. She looked rather flushed at the time. I thought it might be a plumbing problem. She shut the door and started to undo my zipper. She said, “I know you like me. It’ll only take a few minutes.” I was quite unprepared for this, knowing my son was outside. “Not right now, for Pete’s sake!” I said, zipping up my strides. She kissed me and told me she was disappointed. Shortly afterwards, when the amorous wench was still feeling a bit put out by my rejection, she asked if I would get someone to do her windows on Saturday morning. I told her that on Saturday morning, her wish would come true. On Saturday morning, I sent around a much younger bloke to do the job. Bruce, whose knowledge of women w

A Crabby Old Man.

When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in North Platte, Nebraska , it was believed that he had nothing left of any value. Later, when the nurses were going through his meager possessions, they found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital. One nurse took her copy to Missouri . The old man's sole bequest to posterity has since appeared in the Christmas edition of the News Magazine of the St. Louis Association for Mental Health. A slide presentation has also been made based on his simple, but eloquent, poem. And this little old man, with nothing left to give to the world, is now the author of this 'anonymous' poem winging across the Internet. Crabby Old Man What do you see nurses? . . . . . What do you see? What are you thinking . . . . . when you're looking at me? A crabby old man . . . . . not very wise, Uncertain of habit . . . . . with faraway eyes? Who dribble

Should a Woman cast aside tradition and Propose to the Man in her life.

TRADITION DICTATES THAT WOMEN CAN ASK MEN TO MARRY THEM ON FEBRUARY 29 IN A LEAP YEAR. A TRIUMPH FOR EQUALITY – OR A RECIPE FOR DISASTER? Amy say's: YES. When I was a little girl, I read Snow White and dreamed that one day I too would be kissed by a handsome prince and awake to a proposal of marriage and happily-ever-after. Then I grew up and got real. What if the prince had commitment problems or was saving up to buy a property? As a passive woman who left her destiny up to fate, poor Snow White would have suffocated in her glass coffin or had to shack up permanently with the seven dwarves. I don’t think there is anything desperate or emasculating about women proposing to men. I feel that if I ever meet Mr Right and want to pop the question, I’ll be able to hand him a ring box without him handing me his testicles. Then again, I’ve never been a girl who’s had the wedding dress picked out before the first-date appetisers arrive. Call me crazy, but I think that if I’m lucky enough to

Students too young and unskilled in English expected to learn Asian languages.

I Am firmly opposed to having any dialect of the Chinese People being taught to Primary Schoolchildren within Austalia. We are not part of China - nor do we have a common border with the Communist Chinese or the Nationalists on Taiwan (Formosa).I am aware that P M Kevin Rudd gets his rocks off speaking ying tong but the majority of people here in the land of OZ do not or cannot afford to trot off willy nilly at any given time,to visit Mao's Mausoleum and take in a feed fried dog fritters. The one thing we have in common with the Yellow Hordes is - we owe them billions of oz bucks, courtesy of our PM Kevin Rudd( With a name like that he would never get a job at 'Harland and Wolfe'. There are countless issues that need addressing but learning Chinese at an early age is not a priority and is absolutely ludicrous. English must be the main Primary subject, because in its self it is a complex language to learn which most Australians have not mastered. Carmel Tebutt the NSW Health

Dinner was a Strict Family Affair. Rusky version of Long Pig..

Sergey the carnivore not-unlike a Gater, gobbled his mater with veggies and taters. MOSCOW: A Russian cannibal who ate his mother was given a higher sentence by a judge who said: "He was starving, he needed to eat". Sergey Gavrilov, 27, was jailed for jusy 14 years after confessing; "I did not like the meat very much.It was too fatty. But I was just so hungry, I had to eat it.

Better is better than Worse

Thinking people of this planet make changes possible. Change; should and must bring betterment for all peoples. Stagnation, archaic beliefs, dusty rules and most tradition must be forfeited for the good of all. To desire and strive to be of some service to the world, to aim at doing something which will increase the happiness and welfare of all people(without drugs). This is a choice which is possible for us all, and today is a great day to start that voyage and the search for betterment. Although most of my voyages for betterment were not all successful, there were others who gave all in attempting to save others from future mismanagement. However, I live with the knowledge that I have done my best, and am prepared to do more for others when possible. As I have mentioned, it is a great day today, the sun is bright and I am hot, I have replaced the seeds and plants in the garden which had been murdered by the Cats from next door. I will admit I was more than just slightly miffed but re

Continuing cockups by my local Federal Govt Member

THE previous year to this, The Fed Govt office of Jill Hall MP produced a calendar. It wasn't until I informed them two months prior to the calendar becoming effective that staffers in her office had noticed this error. However, It was never corrected or requested to be withdrawn. I some times wonder how this may have adversely effected the lives of a few of her less informed constituents. Jill Hall's Week commenced on a Monday Not on Sunday. Congratulations to Donald and Joan Metters. According to the Jill Hall M P Govt Glossy Reports, Donald and Joan Metters were (***Married in 1949 and are celebrating their 50Th Wedding Anniversary and are pictured with Jill Hall at the ceremony. They are listed together with 19 other 50 anniversaries,) also there were 11 60Th wedding anniversaries plus three 65s, and one 70. Five 90 and five 100 birthdays. *** note the cockup. It was their 60th Anniversary not 50th. I sometimes wonder Who first suggested why some land marks of our lives app

Clever Scam - Taking advantage of older Men.

Clever Scam - taking advantage of older men Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall and in dark parking lots, etc. This is the first warning I have seen for men. I wanted to pass it on in case you haven't heard about it. This will only become more commonplace here on the Gold Coast this summer. A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular Bunnings, or BCF customers. This one caught me by surprise. Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your friends. Here's how the scam works: Two seriously good-looking 20-something girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping into the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is impossible not to look. When you thank them and

Egg Heads Fail Dismally. Also Phonetics her Weakest Link.

Yes, I am an avid watcher of these two Pommy quiz shows - but my main criticism goes to the way the red hairdo witch on the weakest link comes over as a presenter. Her rude inferences to the contestants do not make her my favourite person. The ingrained British way the contestants grovel to any personage of higher position or presumed importance irritates me. It seems the only questions that I provide an answer to are those whom I can guess her suggested prefixed letter such as P D E C, or N M and F and S just to name a few phonetic possibilities. However I would be totally useless on the show due to my complete misunderstanding of bang clang music from which the majority of questions are hatched. And, someone in charge should tell the Question Master that Haiti is not an Island but Dominica is. How mighty are the fallen. Recently shown in Strayer was the EGGHEADS falling on their sword four times on the trot. There was one occasion where it could have been avoided should they have kno

Australia the cradle of Civilisation

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Australia The Cradle Of Man According to our "traditional" history of stone-age occupation the Aboriginals were the "first Australians" having arrived here from south-east Asia at least 50,000 years ago. However, throughout a lifetimes research, I have gathered more than enough evidence that we still know nothing about our ancient past and the identity of the actual first inhabitants of our continent. Until 1960, very little archaeological work had been done. Scientists thought the Aboriginals had only lived in Australia for 10,000 years. Then finds at Kenniff Cave, in southern Queensland, produced evidence of Aboriginal occupation dating from as recently as 5,000 years ago back to 19,000 years. This placed the Aboriginal arrival into the last ice-age. In recent years archaeologists have made some amazing discoveries on the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. Rock shelter occupation sites at

Indias poor urged to 'Eat Rats'

India's poor urged to 'eat rat' I have no problem with the proposal that the poor of India should eat rats. The problem is the numbers of people to which this pertains. Insects are another untapped, highly nutritious food source that disgusts people. But the point is, no society can prosper while the people are malnourished. Though it needs to be thoroughly researched how a reduction in the rat population will affect the area. Natural balances are quickly and easily disrupted by human activity. I bet they would taste pretty good wrapped in bacon Also, I wonder whether these rats will be "cultivated." The big problem with rats is that they are full of exciting diseases (beyond the "Eew" factor). How much meat do they get from a rat? Anyone tasted a rat? Might already taste like bacon. I was just following rule #1 everything tastes better wrapped in bacon. Might have well said "India's poor urged to eat poop. If true, I'd think city rats are t

Telstra Ripoff

Telstra rip off. Tell all your family/ friends/ business acquaintances - in fact tell everybody about this! For all Australian respondents... Telstra Phone book For anyone contemplating using the Sensis directory service number, 1234, DON'T! Sensis, as you may or may not know, is a subsidiary of Telstra. The 1234 number is replacing the Telstra 12456 directory assistance number, but this time with outrageous costs attached: 40c to call the number, then 4c A SECOND! PLUS 88c if they connect you to the number By law, Telstra must provide a FREE directory assistance number. They choose however not to pass this number on to the public. The free number is 1223 Thumbs down to Telstra for finding a way to 'charge', for a service that is supposed to be provided for free. Of course, feel free to forward this on.???

Asylum seekers or Unqualified illegal immigrants?

As long as we are unable to differentiate between the terms 'Illegal immigrant and refugee' the boat people dilemma will remain. The real meaning of refugee would apply to the likes of people fleeing the tyranny of the third Reich during and including post WW2 years also those made stateless after fleeing the yoke of the other axis powers, these people fled in terror to Any country willing to have them. However, it seems now that, illegal unqualified immigrants under the guise of refugees and asylum seekers who are able to pay People Smugglers are arriving from all parts of the globe. This adds another word casualty problem to the English language; together with the likes of Gay, Hero, actress and golliwog. I would love to purchase a quality made 'Golliwog' for my Granddaughters Christmas present. anyone out there in the know. Oh by the way, when or if you arrive in Australia and you don't like the Australian way of life, please return to whence you came as an Asylu

Texas, the Eyes of Justice Are Upon You

By Bill Moyers and Michael Winship On October 13, we lost a resolute champion of the law, a man who left his impact the lives of untold numbers of Americans. His very name made his life's work almost inevitable, a matter of destiny. William Wayne Justice was a Federal judge for the Eastern District of Texas. That's right,he was "Justice Justice." And he spent a distinguished legal career making sure that everyone - no matter their color or income or class - got a fair shake. As a former Texas lieutenant governor put it last week, "Judge Justice dragged Texas into the 20th century, God bless him." Dragged it kicking and screaming, for it was Justice who ordered Texas to integrate its public schools in 1971 - 17 years after the Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education decision made separate schools for blacks and whites unconstitutional. Texas resisted doing the right thing for as long as it could. Many of its segregated schools for African-American chi

All went well at the dentist, I got a quote of $268-00 for the rebuild of a double tooth and it took an hour and five mins, I had that feeling it would have been more had I not asked for a quote.

Dam good weather for Quacks and Umpires.

TODAY: Not unlike a typically wet afternoon at Lords cricket ground with little hope for any play the umpires playing cards and the players and those hard core spectators dreading the "Play abandoned announcement". A sort of nothing day, eight weeks from summer returning to mid winter. Two days ago, my arms and legs were sunburned while busy in the garden. The good news is, that, the rain is falling over the catchment areas and dams are topping up fast and my car does not now need a wash. News from England Relatives is down to nil***** and only one telephone call from Oz Rello's 'Thank you A C B', Oh! and a visit from prodigal son which was unfamiliarly docile but draining on the wallet. To end the day on a miserable note, within four hours I shall be facing up to the torment of the Dentists chair, hiding it will be the stiff upper lip and show no fear of my stolid British upbringing.

On this occasion I shall expect a more substantial reward from the 'Tooth Fairy'

Hallo or Hello or ow yergoing to all my distant rello's and those local also blogger friends and other friends. That should cover the human species, but there are occasions I talk to our parrot and to some of the more friendly birds who visit our garden, each and all who have their own peculiar way of informing me they need feeding, BTW this info should not be leaked to any known detractors. particularly my shrink or medical professional. I have been attending to the garden chores this forenoon now that the overcast sky has brought the temp down from 36 cel midday Yesterday to a more comfortable 18 cel right now. However, anything reasonable distracting me from my present malady is to be welcomed. My problem commenced the evening before yesterday when a large dental filling ejected during dinner, apart from a couple of jagged edges no pain was evident until the morning when brushing. By nine a/m I went off to visit no fewer than five dentists who each suggested I make an appointmen

Horn of Africa Eggheads are Weaponry Winners

MOGADISHU: Somalia, the land of hatred, bloodshed together with rape pillage and burn and little hope of a turn-around to sanity and lawful government. Beyond hope with only extreme attrition being the source of normality as we westerners know. To me the term deep cleansing comes to mind. This shithole of a country steeped in no hope needs the attention of a huge dose of harpic and several full flushes. Local Eggheads. Forget an ocean cruise or even a new Merc. The winners of a team quiz organised by a Somalian insurgent group have instead won a ticket to jihad. The on air comp organised by the al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabaab. Several communities entered the competition, which consisted of questions on science, culture and the Koran. The winning contestants, were yesterday presented with their prize, one AK-47 assault rifle, several hand grenades, an anti armored vehicle mine and logistical supplies. The young men were rewarded with weapons to encourage them to participate in the holy war a

"Don't Worry, We won't be here."

Barak Obama and Kevin Rudd are shown a time machine which can see 100 years into the future. The both decide to test it by asking a question each. Barak goes first "What will the USA be like in 100 years time" The machine whirrs and beeps and goes into action and gives him a printout, he reads it out "The country is in good hands under the new president, crime is non-existent, there is no conflict, the economy is healthy. There are no worries" Kevin thinks "Its not bad this time machine, I'll have a bit of that" so he asks "What will Australia be like in 100 years time?" The machine whirrs and beeps and goes into action, and he gets a printout. But he just stares at it. "Come on Kevin" says Barak, "What does it say?" Kevin replies......."I can't tell ! Its all in Arabic!"

This can happen to anyyone, Yes you too.

Sober driver, Annoyed priest Arrogant Cop. Memories of yesteryear

A few years back a fair bit I had a attended the wedding of a son and daughter in law of a close friend. After the reception when most of the guests had had a skinful, certain designated drivers ferried the guests to their homes or to other destinations. Sitting in the middle seat at the back of the car was the Reverend who had conducted the wedding and was wearing a waist seat belt. Before the first intersection a pedestrian ran across the road causing our driver to slam on the brakes and attracting the policeman ahead attending the car he had stopped in front of our car. At the point in time when our driver braked, the Reverend in the middle seat was thrown forward by the force of inertia - also a wooden jacket clothes hanger which had been placed near the rear window earlier by the driver had found its way between the back of the Reverend and the back seat, both meeting on return impact. I was more than a little surprised at the Reverends utterances who by the time the copper had ar

Spring at last? Filthy smoking habits endorsed by Govt.

A most pleasant day today with all the correct spring ingredients following the recent confusing highs and lows. A recent visit by our two local Granddaughters accompanied by Tim their daddy was unusually pleasant, I am waiting for confirmation on our proposed visit to relatives down the coast, Rosemary has this in hand or has she forgotten again?. Last week while waiting around in the supermarket for Rosemary to turn up from the post office and lottery shop I stood staring at the large prominent sign near the FAG counter "SMOKING KILLS", its ominous message enough to strike fear into persons with half a brain. "Can I help you sir" asked the sales person. "Not me " I replied "I was saved from the wrath of Rothmans and having a stroke by lucky strike back in 86, But what amazes me is that your business and other businesses likened to this establishment are licenced to kill people who are stupid enough to smoke tobacco products, why on earth don't y

If you are on a state pension no need to read this .

Background: In recent decades, rising globalization has forced governments to restrain their fiscal appetites. After the Reagan and Thatcher tax rate cuts of the 1980s, other countries were forced to respond with their own tax reforms. The growth of low-tax jurisdictions, or tax havens, has put further beneficial competitive pressure on governments with excessive tax rates. The result is that tax rates on income and capital have fallen significantly to the great benefit of global investment and growth. These pro-growth reforms did not come about because governments suddenly realized that low tax rates are better for growth. Instead, politicians cut tax rates to prevent the geese that lay the golden eggs of prosperity from flying across the border. Alas, there is now a rising big-government backlash against tax competition. Politicians have made unwise promises for ever-growing levels of redistribution and this is creating pressure for higher tax rates. But higher tax rates are particul
