I Love Guns

What a horribly inappropriate title for a blog post.  On a day such as it is…  Please bear with me. It’s true – I love guns.  I also fear them immensely. I’ve had the opportunity to ‘play’ with some guns at various junctures – L1A1, M-9, M-16, M-60, Steyr AUG (F88), blah, blah, blah. They are all marvellous devices.  Machining and engineering marvels.  Devastatingly efficient at what they were built to do.  An adrenaline buzz to hold and strip and clean and re-assemble.  And an unrivalled adrenaline super-rush to shoot. But they shouldn’t really even have to exist, for the … Continue reading I Love Guns

Birthdays For Dead People

I find it bizarre that we ‘celebrate’ the birthdays of assassinated or otherwise deceased notable figures of recent history, rather than the assassination/death date. Yesterday (May 19) was Malcolm X Day.  Great.  That’s the day he was born.  But he was killed on February 21, torn open by 21 lumps of lead.  Why isn’t the observance day February 21? Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is another one – celebrated around MLK’s birthday (January 15).  Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to ‘celebrate’ the life of MLK on April 4, the day he was murdered? Hasn’t their life had more of an impact … Continue reading Birthdays For Dead People

Free West Papua

Australia’s closest geographical neighbour is the world’s second-largest island, New Guinea.  The eastern half of this island is the Independent State of Papua New Guinea, and the western half is West Papua, now consisting of two Indonesian provinces. In 1975, Papua New Guinea was declared independent after decades of overlapping German, British, and Australian administration, and the post-war union of the Papua and New Guinea territories in 1949. In the same year, The Dutch attempted to leave behind an independent West Papuan nation when departing the region after 149 years of colonial rule.  Indonesia, however, claimed rights of sovereignty over West … Continue reading Free West Papua

Rapture Machine

TRIGGER WARNING: This post pours boiling oil onto prophecy-believing Christians, Jews and Muslims, and all the fakes (politicians, lobbyists, captains of industry & religion, etc.) who are doing their utmost to artificially fulfill an ancient prophecy.  If you are offended by having your beliefs/faith challenged, then press your ‘Back’ button now!   If you were a bit crazy, or a bit led astray, you might believe some of those stories in the Bible (or similar tales from Torah, or Qur’an) that tell of the End Times, and the Revelation, and the Rapture (or similar devices in Torah, or Qur’an). If … Continue reading Rapture Machine

MH17 – Lies, Accusations and Propaganda

  What to believe, what to believe…?  We’ll probably never know.  But I write this post merely as a cover to provide a link to somewhere that encapsulates some information very pertinent to the drawn-out investigation into the downing of a civilian passenger plane over hostile territory in a geopolitical hot-spot.   Coincidence and Mystery Since the tragic shoot-down of MH17, I’ve wondered if perhaps MH370, the disappeared plane from a few months back (see this previous post for a mundane but possible explanation for that), subsequently became MH17 and was shot down to ‘dispose of the evidence’. Maybe, but what … Continue reading MH17 – Lies, Accusations and Propaganda

TIME Agrees With Me

A few days ago I made a prediction.  It may not have been the most obscure or unpredictable of predictions, but, nevertheless, it is always good to get some validation from a major magazine – even if it is a tool of the establishment. Don’t know how the publishing cycle works at this particular glossy, but the folk at TIME would appear to be reading my web-log and plagiarising me. Bastards. The least they could do is plug my Shit blog in their cover story… AsGrayAsGray Continue reading TIME Agrees With Me
