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?

Play It Backwards

December 7, 2007

Ever listened to Garth Brooks and wanted to kill yourself? You are not alone.

The results of a multiple regression analysis of 49 metropolitan areas show that the greater the airtime devoted to country music, the greater the white suicide rate. The effect is independent of divorce, southernness, poverty, and gun availability.

I would like to see a similar study done for Radiohead though.

Women Behaving Badly

February 7, 2007

Another everday incidence of drunk trouble-makers being justly thrown out of licensed premises in the name of public safety:

TWO women who kissed each other in a New Zealand bar are claiming discrimination after they were thrown out by a bouncer.

According to a report in the Dominion Post newspaper, Lydia Boyd and Steph Hansen were told to leave the Grumpy Mole Saloon in Christchurch on Saturday night after the pair kissed on the dancefloor.

The two women, both aged 18, said the move was blatant discrimination.

“It was completely discriminatory. There’s straight couples doing it all the time. They’re practically having sex on the dancefloor,” said Ms Boyd, who declared herself bisexual.

“Bisexual” being code for “Attention-seeking fake lesbian”. Those girls give me the shits too. I wonder if they were issued with a move-on notice?

Was The Bible Written By Tarantino?

December 7, 2006

Ten bible verses that rarely get a run on Sunday. Highlight:

Then Saul said, “Thus shall you say to David, ‘The king desires no bride-price except a hundred foreskins of the Philistines, that he may be avenged of the king’s enemies.’” Now Saul thought to make David fall by the hand of the Philistines. And when his servants told David these words, it pleased David well to be the king’s son-in-law. Before the time had expired, David arose and went, along with his men, and killed two hundred of the Philistines. And David brought their foreskins, which were given in full number to the king, that he might become the king’s son-in-law. And Saul gave him his daughter Michal for a wife.

I don’t know about you but I think an able-bodied daughter who is capable of milling wheat, carrying water and doing general hut-work is more valuable than 100 detached foreskins. He should have at least asked for some cows or something too. Saul was a sucker.

Free Parking In Cronulla (For Whites)

October 17, 2006

Angelfire website worthy of newspaper article.

A MONOPOLY-STYLE board game has been designed to celebrate the race riots of last December in the Sydney suburb of Cronulla.

Called Cronulla 2230 – Win Back Australia, the game has been criticised by NSW Premier Morris Iemma for promoting racial intolerance.


“The object of the game is to become the wealthiest person in the Sutherland Shire through the buying, renting, and selling of property.

“The gaining of such wealth will enable you to fund patriotic organisations like Australia First and the Patriotic Youth League, so they can get into parliament and Win Back Australia.”

The funniest thing about this game is if that if all Australia First wanted was the chance to buy up the entire suburb of Cronulla and then move all their mates into the properties, that would be just fine. However, I am unsure how they could justify taking such arch-capitalist actions while simultaneously railing against “New World Order liberal-globalist-capitalism throughout Australia.”

What would make it even more difficult would be having the money to buy all that property while simultaneously being sued to within an inch of your life by Hasbro.

Soul Prayed For

October 7, 2006

A friendly message from a fellow Youtuber:

Hi, don’t know how I came upon your video, you know how one, runs into a few others and well, I watched yours. We’re all going to die one day, but I get the idea that you know you are soon. I don’t know why you are sorry to Christians, and very, very sorry to “Muslims”, but that doesn’t matter. I’m sorry you are dying and it was nice that you said your “sorries” to all those you felt you needed to say them to, it was a very mature thing to do and God Bless you, I’ll pray for your soul. I’m sure you are going to Heaven. God forgives those who are truly sorry for whatever sins they have committed and being the forgiving God that he is, I’m sure he’ll be waiting for you with open arms.

I’m very sad for you that you are sad to be dying. To not know ahead of time is easier I guess, but on the other hand, if you don’t know and go suddenly, you don’t get the chance to do what you did, and that opportunity to make amends can be a very cleansing experience, leaving you at peace with yourself.

Again, May God Bless you and keep you. Lisa

Where do these nutjobs come from?

Coup Update

September 28, 2006

Luckily, tanks don’t have inflatable tyres.

The tanks still dotted around Bangkok after last week’s military putsch against Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra are proving a major attraction for Thais and foreign tourists who want their picture taken with the soldiers.

But the army appears determined that the carnival atmosphere following the country’s first coup in 15 years does not detract from the serious business of power. Yesterday, it banned go-go dancers from flaunting themselves near tanks and troops.

Thailand is a beautiful country with thousands of years of history, a unique culture, amazing food and wildlife, and some of the most stunning natural landscapes in the world. This message sponsored by the Tourism Authority of Thailand.

Sing Along With Colin

July 3, 2004

Some bloggers are so influential that politicians will go to extraordinary lengths to get them onside. Gay blogger Andrew Sullivan recently withdrew his support for Bush in 2004 over his support for a ban on gay marriage. Colin Powell to the rescue:

US Secretary of State Colin Powell donned a hard hat and tucked a hammer in his belt today to perform a version of the Village People’s hit YMCA.

This blog is greatly looking forward to John Howard’s cover of Tom Petty’s Refugee, and Mark Latham having a crack at Big Yellow Taxi.
