The Church Bells

Nancy just received terrible news. Her beloved grandfather just passed away. She went straight to her grandparents’ house to visit her 92 year old grandmother and offer her some comfort.

When she asked how her grandfather died, her grandmother replied, “It was a heart attack, he got it while we were making love Saturday morning.”

Horrified, Nancy told her grandmother that 2 people nearing 100 years of age having sex would surely be asking for trouble.

1“Oh no, my dear, ” replied granny. “Many years ago, realizing our advanced age, we figured out the best time to do it was when the church bells would start to ring. It was just the right rhythm. Nice and slow and even. Nothing too strenuous, simply in on the Ding and out on the Dong.”

She paused, wiped away a tear and then continued, “And if that damned ice cream truck hadn’t come along, he’d still be alive today!”

Apparently Iceland is One Giant Abstract Painting

Andre Ermolaev is a photographer from Moscow, Russia (featured previously). In an ongoing series of aerial photos, Andre captures Iceland’s incredible landscape like you’ve never seen. Many of his images focus on capturing glacial rivers flowing through Iceland’s volcanic areas and the patterns and colours that emerge from the resulting flow. As Andre describes on his website:

“Iceland is a wonderful country; I would even say that it is a true paradise for all the photo shooting-lovers. But what has become a real discovery for me is the bird’s eye view of the rivers flowing along the black volcanic sand. It is an inexpressible combination of colors, lines, and patterns.”

There now follows a Party Political Broadcast on behalf of the English Cannibal Party.

The Slog

Good evening. My name is Sir Crampton Budleigh-Salterton, and I am the Chairman of the English Cannibal Party.

I want to talk to you tonight, not about the cardboard cut-out misrepresentation of the ECP you will have seen on your television screens over the years, but rather of the Party I am proud to lead. A Party with a 468 year history of traditionalism that began as the Melanesian Cannibal & Headhunting Front. But we have come a very long way since then – 8921 miles to be precise – and the ECP I want you to vote for in 2015 is a lot more than a one-issue Party.

Now of course, the mainstream media love to present the English Cannibal Party as an organisation with no interests beyond eating people, but this is a laughable caricature of our many eclectic, original and exciting policies as a whole. Let me…

Did North Korea’s Kim Jong-un really kill his uncle with 120 starving dogs?

The thing about North Korea is that it\’s so mad, so gruesome that it\’s difficult not to believe whatever tall story you hear about it. Kim Jong-un ate a baby? The army uses kittens for taget practice? Kim Jong-il\’s reanimated corpse stalks the countryside scaring children? It all seems possible.

Liberty GB – The Non-economic Costs of Mass Immigration to the UK

~~Defender of Faith~Guardian of Truth~~

Debate about the costs of mass immigration in mainstream politics and media concentrate overwhelmingly on the economic costs. Indeed, public debate is very often solely about the economics, whether that be the difference between tax paid and benefits drawn by immigrants or the supposed need for immigrants because of their alleged superior skills or work ethic.

These costs are important – although never honestly calculated – but the more damaging costs are the non-economic ones which change the tenor of a society. That is not to say that the non-economic costs do not have economic implications – for example, the 2011 riots in England did – but what I am considering here are the psychological and sociological costs. I concentrate on Britain, but the vast majority of the points listed apply to any First World society with a large immigrant population, and many of the points apply to any society…
