We begin with some light-hearted discussion about a drama, before the actual drama.


Meanwhile, immediately after a 30 minute adjournment, this gem:

Ejector seat?

That’s just what Glock decided to call it, I expect.

“…and the blood of a virgin – just to keep me going til we adjourn at 3.”

Jeez. I hope you’re being paid for this…

Terrifying missing plane explanation is terrifying

Someone – presumably as a joke? – attempted to sign me up for the naturalnews newsletter. You may remember naturalnews from such posts as Was the E.coli outbreak started deliberately?. Interestingly, (presumably) the same person also tried to sign Jacques Rousseau up as well.

Anyway, I’m sure that Jacques didn’t bother visiting the site. I, however, did – “just for the lulz”. I returned enlightened.

Here’s the donotlink link for the page in question (if you don’t know what donotlink is, see here), grandly entitled:

Six important facts you’re not being told about lost Malaysia Airlines Flight 370

And, while yes, the disappearance of MH370 is indeed mysterious, I’m struggling to get my head around this being in any way reasonable:

The frightening part about all this is not that we will find the debris of Flight 370; but rather that we won’t. If we never find the debris, it means some entirely new, mysterious and powerful force is at work on our planet which can pluck airplanes out of the sky without leaving behind even a shred of evidence.

If there does exist a weapon with such capabilities, whoever controls it already has the ability to dominate all of Earth’s nations with a fearsome military weapon of unimaginable power. That thought is a lot more scary than the idea of an aircraft suffering a fatal mechanical failure.

Personally, I think the fact that people still read Mike Adams’ stuff and believe it is probably more frightening.

UPDATE: Incoming from the aforementioned Jacques Rousseau:

At the farthest end of the making-shit-up spectrum sits Mike “Health Ranger” Adams, the author of Natural News – a site that specialises in peddling bullshit quackery to anyone dumb enough to take the link bait plastered up on Facebook.

Yes, it’s Monday – the day of the Great Twitter Blackout – but you might still have a bit of a hangover from Friday:

But even if you were awake, you will have forgotten some of the other stuff
(hopefully not if you’re Judge Mapisa though):

Saayman says:

Winner: I Love My Job Awards, 2014:

But then, why are we bothering with the whole trial thing anyway? We all know the outcome.

And even the journos are confused by those draconian reporting regulations.

I’m sure you can still tell us what colour tissues he’s using…


Not a dry nerve left in the house as my beloved Blades win through to the FA Cup semi final:


Bring on whichever team is (un)lucky enough to draw us for the big game at Wembley next month.
