Actually, it being St Patrick's Day and all, here's a fave quote from a fave Irish writer, Mr. Brendan Behan:
"There is no situation so dismal that a policeman cannot make it worse."
Happy Birthday Dad.
Grand day for a birthday, Blowin'.

Blokes you'll ever find
a solid dude, never rude
and an old friend of mine,
he always had a smiling face
full of love and full of grace,
Rest in peace, great shaper and old friend
To all his friends and family
Love from the Optimist.
That’s shit news.

"A man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point where he does not discern any truth either in himself or anywhere around him, and thus falls into disrespect towards himself and others. Not respecting anyone, he ceases to love, and having no love, he gives himself up to passions and coarse pleasures, in order to occupy and amuse himself, and in his vices reaches complete bestiality, and it all comes from lying continually to others and to himself. A man who lies to himself is often the first to take offense. It sometimes feels very good to take offense, doesn't it? And surely he knows that no one has offended him, and that he himself has invented the offense and told lies just for the beauty of it, that he has exaggerated for the sake of effect, that he has picked on a word and made a mountain out of a pea — he knows all of that, and still he is the first to take offense, he likes feeling offended, it gives him great pleasure, and thus he reaches the point of real hostility..."

No Ambition And Fuckall Interest
Some people think they’re champagne in a tall glass , when they’re actually luke warm piss in a plastic cup.
One for the ONE NATION voter:
A backpacker is traveling through Australia when it starts to piss down. He decides to wait out the thunderstorm in a nearby Bowlo. The only other person at the bar is an older balding bloke staring at his drink. After a few moments of silence the man turns to the backpacker and says in a thick Aussie Strine accent:
"You see this bar, mate? I built this bar with my own bare hands. I cut down every tree and made the lumber myself. I worked away through the wind and cold, the blazing sun and the flies, but do they call me Blowie the bar builder? No."
He had a gulp, then continued "Do you see that stone wall out there? I built that wall with my own bare hands. I found every stone and placed them just right through the rain and the mud, the heat and the dust, but do they call me Blowie the wall builder? No."
"Do ya see that jetty out there on the bay? I built that jetty with my own bare hands, driving each piling deep into the sea-bed so that it would last a lifetime. Do they call me Blowie the jetty builder? No."
"But ya fuck one goat..."
Cut and paste again.
No one’ll ever accuse you of original work .
Why don’t you try participating in a discussion rather than just passing hollow judgement on those who do have something to say ? Just thought I’d put a word in seeing as how you’ve contributed nothing but little jabs you mistakenly believe are clever.
I’ll leave you to it then.
Ya fuck one goat, indeed...
An old joke but a classic.
Except for the classic bit.
Well, a classic cockwomble perhaps.
What you do speaks so loud I cant hear what you say
You have 2 ears and one mouth for a reason
Thinking is difficult, thats why most people judge
You dont need eyes to see, you need vision
Listen or your tongue will make you deaf

Never judge a book by its neck tattoo
ha ha....sorry im judging someone that has a neck tattoo.
Neck tattoo= Bad decision maker.
Face tattoo= Even worst descion maker, living for today with no thought for the future.
Tattoos that can be hidden= Much smarter than all the above.
That said I'm a clean skin, and I'm very very happy i didnt get (or have the money at the time) to get all the tattoos i drew up as a grommet or when younger, some that i remember i wanted, that i now don't have to get removed "dolphins in a circle chasing each other, with an eye in the middle" "that little trripy magic mushroom thing on the Tumbleweed sundial single" "and just cliche bad indonesian tattoos, even consider a map of Indonesia once"

Ha, I used to mix them up too, now I do it on purpose, usually gets a laugh..

Ha ha...yeah I've said a few times on purpose now for laughs.

George Orwell Quotes1 of 116
Threats to freedom of speech, writing and action, though often trivial in isolation, are cumulative in their effect and, unless checked, lead to a general disrespect for the rights of the citizen.
"Free (hate) speech morphing into fake equivalence bollocks. CHECK."
Anonymous Swellnet commentator
If you think what I’ve written is hate speech then that Orwell quote is as relevant as it’s ever been.
1 Orwell quote down, 115 to go...apparently.
