God's Debris

Scott Adams - the guy who bought us the genius of Dilbert - has written a new book called "God's Debris."

Imagine that you meet a very old man who—you eventually realize—knows literally everything. Imagine that he explains for you the great mysteries of life—quantum physics, evolution, God, gravity, light, psychic phenomenon, and probability—in a way so simple, so novel, and so compelling that it all fits together and makes perfect sense. What does it feel like to suddenly understand everything? God's Debris isn’t the final answer to the Big Questions. But it might be the most compelling vision of reality you will ever read. The thought experiment is this: Try to figure out what’s wrong with the old man’s explanation of reality. Share the book with your smart friends then discuss it later while enjoying a beverage.

Get it from: I've downloaded it and will read it shortly. Just to discover what's wrong with the old man's explanation of reality...

World domination by being the opening band

If you've just played the opening set and the main band is on, the Finkelstein advice is to:
Make sure you show no emotion during the rest of their set, and when it’s done, walk over to the front of the stage, and say to their singer, “Nice set.” This is what all bands say to each other – those two words, and nothing else. It doesn’t matter if the stage collapsed, three people in the front row were trampled to death by a panicking elephant, and a mass grave was discovered under the floorboards, it was still a “nice set”. Always was, always will be. To spice things up, add, “Your vocals were too soft. Was your microphone on? Oh, and some talent scouts from Sony and EMI were watching, but they left after your first song.” Then say, “Later!” and walk away. You’re now free to go home, and begin planning world domination…

But officer...the pole just jumped out at me!

Pretoria motorists do not have to be drunk to claim that a telephone pole jumped into the road in front of them. Drivers on a new extension of Peperboom Street in the Chantelle area in Pretoria North have to drive carefully to avoid hitting a Telkom pole in the middle of the road.

It is situated on a curve in the road making it even more dangerous.

Yes, it's true and my response is: You've GOT to be kidding! But it's real...

Catz on Saturday

Going to be hanging out at Catz PJ's in Melville from 7ish on Saturday night if anyone is keen to come. Invite open to all!


Moodly says he's not guilty

Donovan Moodley asked for a retrial in the Johannesburg High Court today, saying he did not kill student Leigh Matthew. What?! Assuming that's true, it's kinda odd he'd wait his entire trail before mentioning that. My own verdict? He's either guilty or protecting someone (and I think it wasn't just him involved in her murder).
