Binge drinking… not just a human problem

May 5, 2008


Video: YouTube

Normally one tends to refer to bad behavior by saying things such as “Your animals!” Now if animals had a ‘decent’ Lawyer (spit on the ground) they would say they have been slandered… however, the Lawyer (spit on the ground) acting for the defense, would take this bit of footage, build up a huge ‘case’ telling the court that… well you know how it goes.

The point is, a little drunkenness might get by, but, being obnoxious, dangerous or violent is totally inexcusable and an indication of someone with issues that need to be resolved.

And here’s another thought, who wants to be around a person, yet alone an Elephant with a hangover?

Worlds Most Dangerous Swimming Pool

This is Victoria Falls in Zambia and if the height of the water is right then apparently you can swim in this little pool.

How easy would it be for you to go over the edge. Oh well I guess lots of people need to get their rush somehow.

Personally I would go skydiving before I would try swimming on the edge of a waterfall like this.

Tigers

There are no land based animals I more admire than the Tigers, they are, in my opinion, the ultimate creature to tread the Earth at present. Sure Elephants are bigger and perhaps more dangerous as indeed are several other animals, it’s just that big cats, but more particularly the Tiger, have got style, movement and a right to be arrogant in abundance… unlike their domestic ‘I want to be fed now’ pussies.

Mind you I have met a couple of breeds of pussies that I liked, one was a Burmese cat and the other was an Abyssinian cat. Both of these breeds of cats seemed to me to be more dog like than cat like, that is, they didn’t come across as masters rather than friends or pets.

Marvin Heemeyer and his Killdozer

February 18, 2008


Video: YouTube

This story is about Marvin Heemeyer and his infamous “Killdozer” incident in Granby, Colorado back in June 2004.

You make up your own mind as to whether this guys was justified in his actions or not. Personally I see and hear of many incidents around the world where ordinary people are pushed too far by business and people in power, sometimes you get people that are not going to be pushed around, Marvin was obviously one not to mess with.

The Story

52 year old welder Marvin Heemeyer lived in Granby, Colorado fixing vehicle mufflers. His small repair shop was located near a concrete factory called Mountain Park. To Marvin and his neighbors’ horrors, the owners of Mountain Park decided to expand the factory, forcing the people living near-by to sell their land to Mountain Park. Sooner or later the factory’s neighbors gave up, except for Marvin. Having tried every way possible, the owners of the factory failed to acquire his land. However all the surrounding land was now owned by the factory, which resulted in Marvin’s shop getting cut off from the rest of the world.

Marvin tried everything in his powers to restore justice. Obviously, the city council and other politicians of the state were on the factory owners’ evil capitalist side. It’s not surprising that Marvin lost the case to the owners, in court. After that Marvin was also given a $2500 fine for not having a connected sewer line. When paying the fine, Marvin attached a note to the check and ticket that read “Cowards”. He was just one of those who would not give up.

On the 4th of June, 2004 during a rainy day Marvin rolled out into town on a bulldozer reinforced with metal sheets.

Deadly Australians – Taipan Snake

November 22, 2007


Video: YouTube

The Taipans – Oxyuranus microlepidotus are Ridgy-didge, are probably the world’s most poisonous snake, if your in the areas they inhabit and you get bitten by one of them, you’re in real trouble. They may not have killed many people, possibly because they avoid us or since we don’t generally cohabit in this vast often hostile continent. If your ‘outback’ and one of these jabs their fangs in you, you’d better have a plan real soon… a plan that doesn’t involve dialing 000 (911) on your mobile; which won’t probably work out there anyway.

Deadly Australians – Lots of Snakes…

Deadly Australians Common Brown Snake

The Common Brown… a snake with Attitude
You get only one guess why they call it that, and what’s worse this one can be very aggressive; it will chase you if you annoy it… or if it’s having a bad hair day or something, it’s fast & big; can grow to over 2m and it’s very poisonous. I wonder if the Aussie phrase ‘Mad as a cut snake‘ relates to somehow cutting a ‘brown’?

Deadly Australians – Crocodile…

‘Crocs’… ‘Salties’, could also be called Optimistic opportunists

There was a story once relating to a Croc which had attacked a ‘tinny’ biting the motor clean off and leaving sizable holes where it’s fangs had penetrated the gunnels. The story goes that for awhile the locals felt safe because they could hear it coming… that is until the motor ran out of petrol.

Most of us have seen ‘Crocodile Dundee’, so I’ll offer this advice, these things grow to over 7 m (23 ft) long, despite their size they are very good at hiding and are very very fast… if you swim or even camp in a tent near where they are you are really stupid.

Ugly, ugly… so ugly even a mother would have troubles loving this one. The pain if one gets stung is apparently excruciating and if they don’t get treated real quick there’s a good chance it could be fatal.

Deadly Australians – Box jellyfish

Also known as the sea wasp or marine stinger.

Regarded as one of the most dangerous of marine animals. The Box Jellyfish floats around almost invisible in the waters of Northern Australia; along side the Crocs, between October to April.

The venom present in the tentacles; which in some cases are almost 3 meters long, is extremely toxic and my result in cardio-respiratory dysfunction with in a just a few minutes.

Deadly Australians – Blue Ring Octopus

The poisen of the Blue Ring Octopus is said to be 10,000 times more potent than cyanide… and there is no known antidote. The bite can leed to paralysis, respiratory arrest and finally death if artificial respiration and heart massage is not carried out on the victim and maintained till the toxin washes out of their system.

This little; not much bigger than a golf ball, somewhat attractive, innocent looking creature can be found widely from Australia to Japan, it can be found in rock pools and as down far as 20m deep. The fact that it’s atractive and can be found in rock pools means that kids should be tought about it since it’s just the sort of thing that they would be attracted to if not warned.
