Once you’ve got over the size of the world’s largest meatball (and actually, that’s a thing, with its own website), there’s still a surprising amount to think about here.

Arrogance, simplicity, self doubt and the forethought of the exact needs of the task in hand, rather than the sheer scale of the endeavour.

I’d have messed this up too, but fortunately I’m not a big fan of meatballs anyway.

The Future

A few years ago, this cartoon wouldn’t really have worked.

But with the state of the world at the moment, the only real issue is that it’s unlikely that anyone will actually be around to do the showing off.


I’m being good by simply being lazy in bed. But that isn’t doing much for my mood, so here’s a lazy post as well.

A touch of microbiology, a touch of humour, and very, very little effort from me.


Live Fast, Die Young.

Here’s an amusing cartoon for you, because I’m not around to give you anything else right now. The wind appears to have dropped just enough for some flying over Struisbaai. 

The appliance I’m using is fast and young. However, I fully intend to delay the dying bit for as long as possible.

Have a good weekend. Ooh – and look out for an interesting astronomical phenomenon tomorrow – tune in here from 9am for that news.

Good business

This might not be the most ethical business idea, but if customers aren’t going to do their due diligence before jumping on board…image
Well, that’s their problem.

Thanks for reading. That’ll be $1000, please.
