Moral: It's women's work mate.

"A man has been struck by lightning in Sydney while doing the dishes.

Yahoo!7 News reports that the 37-year-old was hit by lightning while doing the dishes near a window at a YMCA camp last night at Yarramundi, situated in Sydney's far west"

That'll learn 'im. Mind you, that's a bullet proof excuse to use for the rest of his life, for why he shouldn't do the dishes.

Lucky git, really.

Laugh? I nearly shat. EXCLUSIVE

Just released, an unofficial trailer for the new Tin Tin movie as co-produced by Peter Jackson, and Steven Spielberg who's also directing.

I'm told it's likely to be rated M.

Sometimes when great cartoon classics are brought to the screen, the voices chosen for much loved characters end up completely fucked up and not what you expected.

They've got them spot on here. Can't wait.

Caster Semenya, don't get any on ya.

Trust me, it used to have a penis. Likely still has.

It seems a little extreme don't you think to have a sex change in order to win women's athletic events. Is it something that:

a) occurs to you after having had a sex change, as in "what the fuck, I like running and stuff, I might as well join the girls team, go to the World Champs, and win all the pretty gold medals"

or b) the culmination of a devious plan, whereby a failing running career as a bloke is dispensed with, in favour of beating a bunch of girls, after a few surgeries.

This person is not the first one who's been busted for this of course. In the old days it used to be Soviet bloc 'birds' called Olga and Svetlana.

Shouldn't you have to pass an 'idiot test' first?

This is one of the more curious cases of buyer’s remorse I’ve seen in some time.

But really, if you’re wanting three anyway, what’s so wrong with 54? One on the mush is one too many you dumb bitch.

What is it about indelibly drawing on yourself that people find so seductive, attractive, or desirable?

Hat tip Theo Spark for the graphic.

Maybe it is.

What's goin' on with that!

Is Swine Flu the new health Armageddon or can it simply be sneezed at?

We all remember bird flu, earlier this decade, which sounded bad but killed fewer than 1000 people globally, that sounds a lot but malaria kills more than 500,000 every year but never makes headlines. During the anthrax scares in the post 9/11 period, I think two people died of exposure to this disease. I recall reading later that in the US in any typical year, around 5 people die from anthrax. You could say the anthrax scare lessened the incidence of anthrax deaths to below an average level, ergo improving it, probably because people were more careful around exposure to it.

Is this latest scare just that, a scare? Is Big Pharma looking to clear down some drug stocks? Is it just a getting back at those filthy Mexicans for stealing our jobs? Is it the former and the latter is a bonus?

I’ve not bought any Tamiflu, but I’d be curious to see a pack so I could check its use by date. My guess is it’s around 5 years after the manufacturing date. Remember, every Western government and many others too, stockpiled Tamiflu in 2003. If this all needs to be biffed, it’ll need to be replaced too, especially given there’s a new ‘threat’.
