The Perfect B&E Muffin...

It's what I'm doing at work when's it's quiet.

BBQ sauce on the muffin - like a maccas one - with a slice of marto and grated cheese and then ya toast that and the top half. One slice of bacon and an egg. LIGHTLY grilled pineapple chunks - like 2 - and a dash of red onion.

Tell ya what. Hard to improve on that.

The Aluminium Chef

Well, today was day one of the restaurant experience. Introduced myself to the fryer.

Image Hosted by

Rather unpleasant chap. That's a permanent addition to the appendages. Rather striking if I
may so myself. It didn't hurt at all, so it's a beauty.

Really enjoyed the day. Pretty much was the dish pig for the day as the actual chef - nice
young chick - was undergoing some training of her own today. So from Wednesday on it's just
me and her. Fuck loads of hours, and a few extra. I pick up my duds tomorrow so to give the
impression I know what I'm doing. May post a piccie....may not.

Kitchens are hard core though. WAAAAY hot, but it's fun knocking up a great steak and
presenting the green shit no one eats.

Start full time/casual on Wednesday. Bring on pay day.

My Conspiracy Theory on Metal Storm

My spidey sense is working over time with Metal Storm at the mo.

The traditional owner of MS is on the verge of losing his tech to the "highest bidder" due to "Cayman Islands group Assure Fast Holdings" - I mean, you know ... Cayman Islands? - and it turns out they are pretty much just like those mother fucker property hunters who contract LAND, PROMISE FUCK LOADS OF MONEY THEN PULL OUT WHEN YOU'RE NEXT TO BROKE COZ THEY CAN'T FIND THE FINANCES THEY PROMISED YOOOOOOOOOOOU AND GET OUT OF IT THROUGH SOME FUCKING LOOPHOLE......

Ummm ... soz, where was I. Oh yes, Metal Storm.

So my conspiracy theorist spidey sense is working over time with this one. What better way to get cheap tech than contract some development, contract the financing of it through a "Oh no that's not us" company, don't deliver, then make them sell the tech to "the highest bidder" which I bet goes to the ones that were pulling the strings from the start.

I mean, look how practical this tech is.

The Commonwealth Games.

So the Commonwealth Games are being held in Delhi, India, in October.

This is how I picture the inevitability of it all.

FINALLY, some good news.

Since just before Christmas I've been learning Barista ... umm ... ing ... at a joint that's like volunteer for training at a functioning 'cafe'. Love coffee, love being there.

They gave me the heads up about a position - (which I can't go into SPECIFIC details) - as a Barista at a cafe. I get the interview - finally FFS - and rock up.

Long story short. The cafe - nation wide chain - is re-staffing the whole place for reasons I can't say but are looking for a trainee chef. Turns out I fit the bill regarding age and personality that they're looking for in their chef. I have big experience Good Manufacturing Practices, OH&S regarding food production, etc, so it isn't just smoke and bullshit.

I'm reluctant to use the word 'chef' though the menu is more than Fish & Chip Shop shit, I wouldn't call it Hilton either. Somewhere in the middle.

Beautiful challenge, and stoked for the offer as I love cooking.

Start Monday for an intro. WOOT!.

The Curious Case of a Murderous Possum

Game stuff lol

This is me playing Modern Warfare 2. There's some 'perks' you get that do various things, one which you can see in the first when I point the gun at him and his name doesn't appear and the others do. That's one I've got on. The other thing is my guns moving. That's rotating through my weapons really quick and makes you appear dead and distorted on the ground to them. It's a glitch. It's fun once in awhile.

The Collapse of Humanity

The interesting thing about disasters - leaving aside acknowledging the absolute tragedy for a moment - is how fast it takes for humanity to find itself somewhere in the vicinity of survival of the fittest leaving nothing but something resembling a war zone, or worse, everyone for themselves.

Two examples of this were cyclone Katrina in the States, and currently Haiti. It only takes the scum element looters - (not including food looting from deserted shops, unless they're hoarding) - to wreck havoc and for others to defend their property. After a short time every one is warring unless the respect for official authority returns.

This sort of inhumanity isn't exclusive of apparent underdeveloped nations. The U.S. and Katrina is an example of it. Like I've said before, be in a burning building with strangers and you'll witness human nature in its raw state.

Well done mankind. Way to shine.

A sure sign of the Apocalypse!

I have been noticing changes in the environment. Signs, if you will, of the truth.

Blood, in the water?

Dead birds?....nae.

Four horsemen looking awesome on their steeds?....negatory.

I table evidence. Let's label it 'Forward Observation Post Alpha'.

Credit where credit's due though. Points for positioning.

Some days you just wanna take a bat to something breakable.

Seriously, this one blows my mind.

Watch this vid.

I dunno, they are SO FAR off the mark I'm almost embarrassed for them. OBVIOUSLY it's a cultural thing. Obviously they don't know what the West Indies are either.

Insular, 'not worldly', I dunno. Shut the fuck up either way.

...and the winner IS...

The recipients were unable to collect their prizes...

The Darwin Awards Announced.

I think the winner was deserving. Don't fuck with explosives unless you know what you're REALLY doing.

"(26 September 2009, Belgium) The city of Dinant is the backdrop for this rare Double Darwin Award. Two bankrobbers attempting to make a sizeable withdrawal from an ATM died when they overestimated the quantity of dynamite needed for the explosion. The blast demolished the building the bank was housed in. Nobody else was in the building at the time of the attack.

Robber One was rushed to the hospital with severe head trauma; he died shortly after arrival. Investigators initially assumed that his accomplice had managed a getway, but the second bungler's body was excavated from the debris twelve hours later. Would-be Robbers One and Two weren't exactly impoverished--their getaway car was a BMW."

A fine day for a lynching...

One thing about human nature that never ceases make me sit and shake my head and that is .... The Mob Mentality.

These same people that get a sniff of apparent immoral ... ness ... hmmm ... are the same people that drink too much and scare and beat their women, take drugs, rape, kill and pillage then claim a moral high ground on the corpse of someone who got cornered for doing immoral things to others.

Paedophiles are the cockroaches of human society, I'm sure we all agree, but in order for someone to be designated a paedophile they need to have committed an act or acts that the law has designated unlawful and then been caught by the police, formally charged, trialled, then punished ... yes? ... well no, according to 'The Mob'.

Just like the judicial system The Mob has an equation to label someone as a paedophile. The difference is, this equation is ever changing.

For example, the Justice Equation looks something like: 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = Crime.

The Mob's: 1 + Fuck it, let's hang him! = Crime. This is why humans introduced a set of rules and people who had to nut this shit out. This is why not everyone has a badge and a gun and this is why the police have powers you don't.

Case in question:

Someone that resembles having paedophile habits was basically run out of town on YouTube. They are claiming a victory but as anyone will know that has watched even one episode of Law And Order paedophiles are professionals. If they smell attention they will drop their tools on the spot and run all the way off the radar just like a plane going down. One minute he's there blinking away, next minute, gone.

Your average person with a brain would consider the negatives of this. The lynch mob don't. They woot and carry on like they've won a victory against the horrors in the dark and there's a knight in shining armour metaphorically lubing up his right hand to jerk away on his ego.

Do you know what this bloke with paedophile tendencies did?. He deleted everything and is only inconvenienced by losing a collection of links to kids channels on YT....and he has learned ANOTHER lesson in staying off the radar.

Well done lynch mob, well done.

The Tsunami Vs The Twin Towers on The Psyche

Just been reminiscing over the last decade and I realized the difference between the impact the tragedy of 9/11 had versus the MAMMOTH tragedy of the Tsunami in the Indian ocean.

When you see footage of the planes slamming into the towers against an emotive soundtrack you tend to get a fraction lumpy in the throat, but footage of a giant wave with VASTLY more devastation about to unfold and the only emotion you generally feel is awe, but not sadness ... for some reason.
