Some scifi for you

Part 1 – Fortress has been around a while, part 2 is below.

The last war broke out. All the people are dead, but the machines continue dutifully to follow orders. The automatic base machines begin fueling and charging the weapons of last surviving bomber preparing it to drop bombs on the dead enemy city. This happens until the last echo of mankind subsides completely.

Warning, don't say a woman is beautiful because that is sexist. Probably also racist.

The BBC commentator and former tennis player Andrew Castle has risked sparking another Wimbledon sexism row after making comments about the appearance of the girlfriend of Brit-of-the-moment Marcus Willis.

During Willis’s second-round match against the former Wimbledon champion Roger Federer, as the camera lingered on Jennifer Bate, a dental surgeon, Castle said: “It’s a pity my dentist doesn’t look like that.

The broadcast remarks triggered a wave of outrage on social media, including some who labelled the broadcaster “creepy” and “sexist”.

Car manufacturer Bentley have been forced to pull an advertisement from YouTube featuring racing legend John Bowe driving a $428,000 vehicle at up to 330km/h on a Northern Territory highway.

The online advertisement fell foul of the Advertising Standards Bureau, who ruled the video breached the rules that state a car cannot be promoted driving more than the speed limit in any state the advertisement is published.

The promotional video was filmed on the Stuart Highway, which has an open speed limit on a roughly 380 kilometre stretch between Alice Springs and the Ali Curung rail overpass.

Seriously, I’m starting to think Australia is governed by a bunch of delicate, woosey-panted princess. OOOh we can’t show fast cars driving legally in the middle of bum-fuck.

Texas company to save the world from Vegans

The company  “Memphis Meats” has successfully grown real, authentic tasting meat from animal stem cells. That’s right. The beef, pork and poultry grown by Memphis Meats provides all the same nutrients and flavor as the meat you get from the supermarket, but without all the unnecessary consequences of the contemporary livestock rearing process. Game changer.

Warning about the HEALTH AUSTRALIA PARTY

This weekends election has given first billing to a bunch of asshats called the Health Party Australia. Turns out this is a political group who used to be named the Natural Medicine Party. They are a bunch of crack-pot Anti-vaccination, anti-fluoridation and Naturopathy supporters, founded by a Naturopath (aka snake oil salesman). So DON’T vote for these tools.

You might as well vote for a banana. That would do more for Australia’s health than these window lickers.

Snopes investigates Australian gun crime stats

Those gun crazy fuckwits in America keep claiming that Australian gun laws have caused an increase in crime.

Short story – If anyone says our gun laws don’t work, they are talking shit. Mind you, I don’t know why people are bothering about gun control in the US. America isn’t really that interested in its gun crime problems. They did jack-shit after a dude machine gunned 20+ babies at Sandyhook so I doubt anything will ever change. But at least we have this to boast about. Nyer Americans!

Sydney's new shit-hole approved!

James Packer’s Crown Casino is to be built at Barangaroo in Sydney after the project was approved by the New South Wales Planning Assessment Commission.

The NSW Government can now give it the green light for construction.

It will be built with some modifications to the original plan, which will give more public space at the southern end of Barangaroo.

The casino will also be set back 30 metres from the harbour giving extra space for people to walk along the promenade at the western foreshore at the edge of the casino.

Yup, just what Sydney needs. A new casino exempt from our lock-out, smoking, behavior and alcohol laws that are applied to all other businesses in Sydney. Because if you got the money, you make the laws!
