Good riddance to one of the worst cheats in the history of Sport.

I think we all know who I’m talking about.

World Cup Shorts 1

June 22, 2010

Here’s an idea. Not a very good idea, but nevertheless an idea.

A South African doctor has developed a new anti-rape female condom that has been unveiled in time for the World Cup.

The Rape-aXe was invented by Dr Sonnet Ehlers, who plans to distribute 30,000 of the devices during the course of the World Cup, CNN reports.

The latex condom is inserted by the woman like a tampon, and features jagged rows of teeth-like hooks that latch onto an attacker’s penis upon penetration.

Once attached, only a doctor can remove the Rape-aXe and Ehlers hopes authorities will be on the scene during any potential removals.

Possible problems with this plan:

a: One of the major danger in being raped is that they will kill you afterwards, a condom won’t help that
b: The old “hooks in the penis” thing is probably only likely to enrage a rapist, making them more likely to kill you in any case
c: By the time this does anything, you’ve already been raped. It might help to catch the guy who did it but in most cases of rape that is rarely the issue anyway.

Since prevention is better than cure, might I suggest this instead?

Cricket Isn’t The 100m Sprint

I couldn’t agree more with this article panning the Anti-Doping commission intruding in cricket.

So much for the disease. What about the cure? WADA developed stringent and zealous procedures in the context of athletics, and rightly so. But one size does not fit all. To apply rules designed for athletics and apply them to cricket is disproportionate and potentially destructive.

God Talks To Jesus

Gary Ablett:

“For some time after it I used to worry about what people thought, until one day Jesus spoke to me and said, ‘Gary, most people don’t even know who they are, let alone who you are, so why should you worry about what they think?’

After that it gets weird.

On More Efficient Cheating

November 8, 2007

muttiah-muralitharan.jpgA piece of advice for Muttiah Muralitharan.

It’s plainly obvious that you cheat and everyone knows it. However, the ICC has decided that it’s ok to cheat if you are playing for a side that would otherwise be uncompetitive on the world stage.

So with that settled, why bother even pretending to bowl? Just take a chair and bash Ricky Ponting over the head with it, like they do in “professional” wrestling.

It’s got about as much to do with cricket as what you do currently.
