Always growing older - never growing up.

Eclectic random geekery: Star Wars, Doctor Who, Sci-Fi, science, photography, LEGO, and stupid, stupid things.

This is my personal opinion / reblogging blog. If you're after my personal photos or awful photoshop creations, the links are below.

LIKE YOU CARE...

As they say in the classics "I'm too old for this shit".

That said, I live in sunny Brisbane (Australia), forging a career in advertising / marketing whilst enjoying life as it comes.

I take photos on my iPhone, listen to (a lot of) music on my iPhone, and like Star Wars. So yes, I'm a geek.

That's about it.

Party on!

Can Star Wars films predict World Leaders?

I dunno. You be the judge …

American & British politics have seen 50/50 between Democrats & Republicans / Liberal & Conservative, while Australia has been predominantly Liberal. The Catholic Church has seen three popes; and three leaders have also graced the stage of Iraq & North Korea.

The only figureheads to have been in power for all 6 of the original Star Wars films are Gadafi, Castro, Bolkiah & Elizabeth II.

Just sayin’.

1977 - A New Hope - Carter (D), Fraser (Lib), Callaghan (Lab), Al-Bakr, Bolkiah, John Paul I, Elizabeth II, Castro, Kim Il-sung, Gaddafi

1980 -The Empire Strikes Back - Carter (D), Fraser (Lib), Thatcher (Cons), Hussein, Bolkiah,  John Paul II, Elizabeth II, Castro, Kim Il-sung, Gaddafi

1983 - Return of the Jedi - Reagan (R), Hawke (Lab), Thatcher (Cons), Hussein, Bolkiah, John Paul II, Elizabeth II, Castro, Kim Il-sung, Gaddafi

1999 - The Phantom Menace- Clinton (D) , Howard (Lib), Blair (Lab), Hussein, Bolkiah, John Paul II, Elizabeth II, Castro, Kim Jong Il, Gaddafi

2002 - Attack of the Clones - Bush (R), Howard (Lib), Blair (Lab), Hussein, Bolkiah, John Paul II, Elizabeth II, Castro, Kim Jong Il, Gaddafi

2005 - Revenge of the Sith - Bush (R), Howard (Lib), Blair (Lab), Al-Yawar, Bolkiah, Benedict XVI, Elizabeth II, Castro, Kim Jong Il, Gaddafi

2015 - Something, Something, Something Dark Side - ???????????

Ginger Bill Comprehensively Defeated

The House of Representatives today rejected the Private Member bill to allow redheads to marry each other, despite the majority of Australians supporting the concept. 

"People are people" said Raymond Fullcroft, "it saddens me that we’re still discriminating against people because of their genes."

"I truly believed the extremists in the conservative party would support this bill after they finally recognised blue-eyed people’s rights last year. I suppose we can take a positive from the Labor Party allowing a conscience vote on this issue."

Prime Minister Gillard was visibly upset by the vote, lambasting naysayers for denying her the equal rights that all Australians cherish. 

The Parliament then closed for a recess to participate in a stoning of a raped woman and a couple of pooftas.

Star Wars Episode 7: The Ranga Drives A Stake Through KVN-O7’s Heart

Scene One: It is early Winter 2010 on the banks of Lake Burley Griffin. A charred former leader, sans limbs, weeps uncontrollably as his former Padawan leers at his broken frame.
Julia: “You were the chosen one! You were meant to destroy the sith, not join them! You were supposed to bring balance to the force, not to leave it in darkness!”
Kevin: “I hate you!”

Scene Two: It is late Summer 2012 on the skywalk of Telstra Tower. KVN-O7 stalks the PM like a churlish media whore.
Kevin: “I’ve been waiting for you, Julie-Wan. We meet again, at last. The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the loathed PM; now *I* am the popular choice.”
Julia: “Only the popular choice of evil, Kev.”
Julia: “Its over Kev, I have the high ground. And the faceless men.”
Kevin: “You underestimate my power!”
Julia: “Don’t even try it.”
**attempts to jump Julia, and gets all his limbs cut off. Again.**

After the earth dies, some 5 billion years from now, after it’s burned to a crisp, or even swallowed by the Sun, there will be other worlds and stars and galaxies coming into being — and they will know nothing of a place once called Earth.

Ten Years Later by Tony Piro (Calamities of Nature) 
Enough is enough. No matter your nationality, religion or beliefs; please contact your local politicians and urge them to remove their troops from this pointless war.
Life is too precious to fight over oil, or to argue over who has the best god.
Let’s focus on what’s important for once.

We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%
Show your support: Occupy Wall Street

The grabbing hands
Grab all they can
All for themselves
After all

It’s a competitive world
Everything counts in large amounts

The Graph
On the wall
Tells the story
Of it all
Picture it now
See just how
The lies and deceit
Gained a little more power
Confidence
Taken in
By a sun tan
And a grin

The grabbing hands
Grab all they can
Everything counts in large amounts

Nice political statement made by Death Star PR today in an open letter to the USA’s Pentagon:
"… the Death Star does ravenously consume resources. But only the resources of incredibly evil planets where they weren’t really doing anything good with them anyway. … How many countries have YOU "helped"/ruthlessly invaded in order to steal their natural resources for yourselves. Hardly ANY. Amateur."
LOL!

“I hear your mom was asking about evolution,” Perry said today. “That’s a theory that is out there — and it’s got some gaps in it.” Perry then told the boy: “In Texas, we teach both creationism and evolution. I figure you’re smart enough to figure out which one is right.”


Yep, that’s how schools work. You tell kids some things that are true and some things that are made up and you trust that the children will be “smart enough” to figure it out. “America’s first three presidents were George Washington, John Adams and the Green Lantern. Good luck on your AP History test.”

11 Year Old tells Religious Politician To Respect His Beliefs
Way to go Charlie Fine! (And kudos to the SMH.)
Here’s some of the best quotes from Charlie’s article in today’s Sydney Morning Herald:
I think it is possible to be non-religious and a good person.
By all means, Mr Nile, you go out and be as Christian as you want; I respect that entirely. 
Your views are out of step with modern society, so I would ask you to reconsider your actions and continue to allow parents and children a choice in their classrooms.
So Mr Nile, I would be delighted if you would come and actually observe our ethics classes, so that you can see first-hand how they work.
Welcome to the 21st century Mr Nile.  We atheists are here and don’t want your christian beliefs shoved down our throats anymore.
Kind regards,
The human race
