Sigh.....

Presumably we'll find a little girl every day. We'll end up having to build whole new orphanages.

Imagine what joy we could achieve if people prayed Googled together for rational, as opposed to divine, guidance on the rules of English spelling and grammar before posting inane memes…

Here we go again. And if we have another drought year, more prayers will follow. We really have an interesting way of solving our problems here...

Q: Wat is klein en bruin en gaan op en af teen 'n boom?
A: 'n Masturbeertjie.

En dit is waaraan die kommentators en hulle bidbeertjies daar my laat dink. Ek kon die grappie nie heeltemal onthou nie en was verplig om hom in 'n ou uitgawe van Vrye Weekblad te gaan soek. :-)

I run a page on FB about stargazing from my home town. FB send a message to the effect that if I were to add more categories to my site it would come up in more searches. I tried to add 'astronomy'. As one starts typing, it gives you suggestions of what categories are available. At the Astr stage, there are only two possibilities left.  'Astrologist and Psychic' and 'Astrologist'.  Cry

I thought it's "astrologer" rather than "astrologist." But I see my spell check accepts both. Perhaps you should advertise as astrologist, but only ever talk about star gazing. And if they ever ask for a prediction, you say "well, in four billion years we're going to get fried by the sun."

I have always found it funny: the people most fervent about their star signs cannot identify a single constellation at night. I once tried to show a lady of my acquaintance where her star sign, Leo, is. She couldn't see it, and asked whether it might be more visible if we used a telescope. My life might have been easier if I had more faces and palms.

Yup, that's the way to go: Let's try magic instead of science. It'll work like, um, a charm...

I think even Joshua's dust is stirring in an attempt to roll over wherever he was entombed.

You may think... Boogie you should click "Continue Reading" and post that... trust me, I shouldn't. It goes on for pages, and pages, and pages.

And as in a discussion I had last night: I'm growing really tired of this "us vs nature" narrative that has become so prevalent. This new concept of "Gaia Karma". To whit: Maybe the dinosaurs were killed off because mother earth knew the amount of oil they'd eventually leave lying around... *rolls eyes*

The idea that humanity somehow stands apart from nature is totally absurd.  We’re a product of nature, and inescapably constrained by it and its laws.  For that reason, it is simply not possible for any person to do something that could properly be called “unnatural.”  “Stupid,” yes.  “Destructive,” yes.  “Detrimental,” yes.  But “Unnatural,” no.

Also, if COVID-19 has a mortality rate of 2% – 4%, it’s a really crappy immune response.

This new concept of "Gaia Karma".

Then folks who think nature and ecosystems will benefit from this corona thing are misguided. It will make things worse, because it will set back humanity's progress. For decades now, we have been getting ever greener; now new technology will be put on hold. Economies that crash lead to higher birth rates. Etc. etc.

In Iran grawe hulle blykbaar massagrafte. Ek vress ons gaan ook daardie paadjie loop. Ek wonder of daar al enige beplanning voor gedoen is? Daar is helaas nou 'n groot kans dat Suid-Afrika oor die volgende ses maande of so soveel as 300 000 of 400 000 (of selfs meer) lyke gaan produseer. Wat gaan met dit alles gedoen word?
