Wise Doctor

1A woman goes to the Doctor, worried about her husband’s temper. 

The Doctor asks: “What’s the problem? 

The woman says: “Doctor, I don’t know what to do. Every day my husband seems to lose his temper for no reason. It scares me.”

The Doctor says: “I have a cure for that. When it seems that your husband is getting angry, just take a glass of water and start swishing it in your mouth. Just swish and swish, but don’t swallow it until he either leaves the room or goes to bed and is asleep.” 

Two weeks later the woman comes back to the doctor looking fresh and reborn. 

The woman says: “Doctor that was a brilliant idea! Every time my husband started losing it, I swished with water. I swished and swished, and he calmed right down! 

How does a glass of water do that?” 

The Doctor says: “The water itself does nothing. It’s keeping your mouth shut that does the trick.” 


Irish Humour 

After living in the remote countryside of Ireland all his life, an old Irishman decided it was time to visit Dublin. 

In one of the stores, he picks up a mirror and looks into it. 

Not ever having seen a mirror before, he remarked at the image staring back at him. 

‘How ’bout that! he exclaims. ‘Here’s a picture of my Fadder.’ 

He bought the mirror thinking it was a picture of his dad, but on the way home he remembered his wife didn’t like his father, so he hung it in the shed, and every morning before leaving to go fishing, he would go there and look at it. 

His wife began to get suspicious of his many trips to the shed. 

So, one day after her husband left, she went to the shed and found the mirror. 

As she looked into the glass, she fumed, “So that’s the ugly bitch he’s running around with”.

Obamacare Working Just as Actually Intended

Beyond the Cusp

Everywhere you turn on the media, be it news coverage, late night entertainment, Comedy Channel faux news or virtually any talk show, you are hearing all about the failures of the Obamacare rollout and how literally thousands, hundreds of thousands and soon rumored to become millions losing their health insurance coverage largely because their current policy does not meet the stringent government mandated standards. Virtually everybody is treating all of the litany of disasters which is becoming the standard for all phases and measures of Obamacare as if they are either unintended consequences, results from measures which were mainly caused by miscalculations, overzealous application resulting from no clearly defined standards, or simply put none of the problems were intended, planned, foreseen or desired. Well, perhaps the media has gotten this as wrong as they have virtually everything else about President Obama and his entire agenda from their initial praise and…

Discovering the Lost City of Heracleion

Egyptian Streets


For centuries, the city of Heracleion has been shrouded in myth and thought to be a legend. The city, visited by Paris and Helen of Troy, and mentioned by numerous ancient historians such as Diodorus and Herodotus, had been lost for nearly 1,200 years until French archaeologist Franck Goddio discovered it in 2000.

Thought to have been initially founded in 12th Century BC, the city, also known as Thonis, disappeared deep beneath the surface of the earth 1,200 years ago. Today, the mythical city’s treasures continue to be unearthed. Among the lost treasures found mere kilometres off the coast of Alexandria are giant statues, slabs of stones with ancient Greek and Egyptian inscriptions, dozens of ships, gold coins, bronze statues and more. Below is a collection of photographs taken by Franck Goddio and Christoph Gerigk of what has so far been discovered.

The Slog

Jonathan King: time to review his case?

copscorptitleThe Met & Newscorp: who’s feeding who?

When the world is crawling with badhats, the main difficulty involved in writing about them is maintaining a focus. A continuing one for me since the arrest of Stuart Hall has been the mass distraction involved in Plod arresting the famous of yesteryear in a blaze of publicity sufficient to make the Met look like addictive pyromaniacs.

Spookily, the accused all have the letters ‘BBC’ tattooed onto their cvs. Well – almost all of them: the Met arrested Max Clifford in order get at his files….but not necessarily for the reasons you might imagine.

A clearer shot of what’s really going on here is gradually developing – or at least, it is for me. Until a week ago, my view was merely that the Met has been supplying Newscorp with an endless supply of mud with…

Islamic extremists set up Sharia law in British Cities: ‘No porn or prostitution’

Most Intolerant Religion

[By REBECCA CAMBER for Daily Mail/ Originally published in July 2011Islamic extremists have launched a poster campaign across the UK proclaiming areas where Sharia law enforcement zones have been set up.

Communities have been bombarded with the posters, which read: ‘You are entering a Sharia-controlled zone – Islamic rules enforced.’

The bright yellow messages daubed on bus stops and street lamps have already been seen across certain boroughs in London and order that in the ‘zone’ there should be ‘no gambling’, ‘no music or concerts’, ‘no porn or prostitution’, ‘no drugs or smoking’ and ‘no alcohol’.

Hate preacher Anjem Choudary has claimed responsibility for the scheme, saying he plans to flood specific Muslim and non-Muslim communities around the UK and ‘put the seeds down for an Islamic Emirate in the long term’.

In the past week, dozens of streets in the London boroughs of Waltham Forest, Tower Hamlets…

Documentary : Know Madagascar


Madagascar, officially the Republic of Madagascar and previously known as the Malagasy Republic, is an island country in the Indian Ocean, off the southeastern coast of Africa. The nation comprises the island of Madagascar (the fourth-largest island in the world), as well as numerous smaller peripheral islands. Following the prehistoric breakup of the supercontinent Gondwana, Madagascar split from India around 88 million years ago, allowing native plants and animals to evolve in relative isolation. Consequently, Madagascar is a biodiversity hotspot; over 90 percent of its wildlife is found nowhere else on Earth. The island’s diverse ecosystems and unique wildlife are threatened by the encroachment of the rapidly growing human population.

Initial human settlement of Madagascar occurred between 350 BCE and 550 AD by Austronesian peoples arriving on outrigger canoes from Borneo. These were joined around 1000 CE by Bantu migrants crossing the Mozambique Channel. Other groups continued…
