birthday today. Took the day off work and did very little, other than
go to a scooter shop to test ride an Italjet Dragster (see below).

hijo de puta
colleague Alex Robson gave me the heads-up on this particularly disgusting
development at the Australian National University:
For your amusement - attached is a flyer urging students to study the
Spanish language at ANU, which I discovered this morning in Melville
Hall while providing enrolment advice to new students.
- this is how the university tries to market itself to new students!
I e-mailed Alex and asked if this was for real. Sadly, it was:
was prominently displayed on a board at the Faculty of Arts section
of student enrolment activities. There is absolutely no doubt that it
was placed there by faculty staff, since other advertising material
There is a good chance that *every* new student in *every* faculty of
this university, as well as exchange students and postgraduate students,
would have seen this when they came to enrol.
However, now I have torn it down - so the Faculty of Arts can go fuck
also sent thru an alternative recruitment poster:
comparison will of course make the limp-wristed crowd very upset.
only difference between Hitler and Guevara is that Che got shot before
he could do as much damage. Not that this would have stopped a bunch of
dickhead academics idolising him. Fucking parasites.
ride: Italjet Dragster 180
EU's new emission laws have pretty much killed off the bigger-bore European
got a chance today to have a brief squirt on the Italjet Dragster, a pure
"sports scoot" with around 9,400kms on the clock.
I wasn't as impressed as I expected. It was the first time the thing had
been switched on since Christmas for starters, and the tyres were under-inflated.
Taking those things into account, what was it like?
wasn't that much faster than the more "boring" Sym
Euro I just tested. Higher top speed and quicker acceleration than most
scoots, which is useful, and soggy tyres aside it seemed to have firm
"sporty" suspension. It has those stupid "reverse"
brakes (ie. left lever activates the front), though they felt very good.
biggest problem with a scoot like the Dragster is that it's stuck in no-mans
land: it doesn't have the practicality of other scoots, and doesn't have
the performance of a "real" motorbike.
is very little storage space, no shopping-bag hook, hard seats and no
luggage units available.
also have a poor reputation for reliability. Factoring that in, I can't
really see any reason to get the Dragster. An Asian 150cc 4-stroke scooter
will give you only slightly less performance and greatly enhanced comfort
and practicality, not to mention much higher build quality. The Dragster
looks like shit up close. Crappy quality plastic fittings and dull paint.
a ride, but not worth buying.
rethinking the Honda scooter
week I took another test ride of the Honda
@125 I rode a while back. I was not impressed the second time around.
punted the 125 on mostly open highway, its flaws were mostly hidden or
attributed to the fact I still hadn't developed proper scooter-riding
time, I concentrated on more gnarly, traffic-infested narrow urban environs.
seat is still comfy, the scoot still finished beautifully and the top
speed (around 95kph) is still fine. There's plenty of storage space and
the switchgear is quality stuff.
problems became apparent. To start with, the suspension is dreadful, with
small bumps upseting the scoot's composure quite badly. Not talking big
bumps either: the small bump going into a driveway would have made me
crash had I been going slightly faster. All scoots have basic suspension
not meant for choppy ground, but this was really bad.
scoot is also slower than a crippled pig in the acceleration stakes. The
top speed is fine, but it takes an eternity to get there, which makes
picking a gap in traffic a hazardous experience. The highly restrictive
exhaust system may be at fault here.
the brakes are godawful: a stupid "reverse" dual-braking system
makes for awful low-speed riding - such as around roundabouts, where you'd
normally use the rear brake as a kind of defacto clutch. I never seemed
to know which was the best brake to use. It is a stupid system Honda need
to jettison pronto. It adds nothing to safety and makes riding much harder
than it should be.
the Honda had a less restrictive exhaust, better springs and normal brakes,
it would be an easy scoot to recommend. Unfortunately, it doesn't, so
cry me a river already
opinion has not changed one iota from
before: fuck Mamdouh Habib and his asshole family.
don't give two shits what happens to talibanist assholes, or those who
government owes this prick no apologies whatsoever.
know some of you won't agree with me, but you can go bite my ass.
Monbiot - enterting another year of perpetual gloom - is telling us how
we should be about global warming.
Monbiot's standard "the-modern-world-will-kill-us-all" drool.
I mention it because it reminds me of a comment I left on another blog:
"global warming" ties with creationism as the ultimate non-falsifiable
than normal weather? = proof of global warming.
than normal weather? = proof of global warming.
oceans? = proof of global warming.
oceans? = proof of global warming.
global warming scaremongering the "population bomb" of the new
century? I know people in the environmental movement - people of otherwise
great intellect and sober tempraments - who regard Dr. Paul Ehrlich's
crackpot theories as gospel despite the fact that the silly wanker has
been wrong about pretty much everything for over 40 years.
warming is to the environmentally paranoid what Jews are to conspiracy
theorists and satan is to religious fundamentalists: the nebulous, self-evident,
non-existent boogeyman for all the world's ills.
fact that your proponents get to write articles in broadsheet newspapers
and have PhDs after their names, doesn't stop a crackpot theory from being
a crackpot theory.
fuck's sake. Go have a beer and calm down, you silly bloody wankers.
realise I shouldn't....
it's too much fun.
some of the brilliant predictions Joe Vialls
has blessed us with over the last three years. Enjoy!...........
the Jewish-American elite really wants to force an end game in the Middle
East, Vladimir Putin now appears to be ready and waiting
from the Jewish Lobbies in Washington, the only unqualified [and thus
incredibly stupid] support for a strike against Iraq has come from the
Australian Government – located at the bottom of the world and
completely out of touch as usual. The way things stand at present a
strike in the short term looks extremely unlikely, but not impossible.
Any American servicemen obliged to invade Iraq at any time in the future
on behalf of the Jewish State, would do well to keep a weather eye open
for well-armed angry Russians.
Israel Plans Blitzkrieg to Capture Arab Oil Fields
30 January 2002
It seems likely that David Hicks will be released into Australian custody
sometime during the next few months, in order to be tried on some trumped-up
charge around October 2002
Creeps Slowly Towards Paramilitary coup d'etat
will happen next is speculative, but must now include the real possibility
of a transitional paramilitary administration if the lobbies continue
to control the White House and Capitol Hill, and thus continue to violate
the American Constitution. For the first time in American history the
Administration and Congress have been put on notice by those tasked
with protecting the American Constitution – The US Military, whose
members take their personal oaths very seriously. Watch this space.
Attack on MV Limburg Causes Panic in Washington
"Invade Iraq And We'll Sink Your Tanker Fleet!"
Using the best principles of unconventional warfare, someone has just
warned America that if the Zionists attack the Middle East, they in
turn [ whoever they are] will make damn sure that the pillaged oil never
reaches America. Never mind defending the Strait of Hormuz or the Bab
el Mandeb you fools, how do you think you going to get the stolen crude
oil back to north America?
while the very small American force stands facing the open gates leading
into the heart of Baghdad itself, with four million armed Iraqis in
front and 100,000 armed Iraqis behind, its members might care to glance
across to their right flank. Not very far away is the border with Iran,
and if the mood swings less than a single degree, 500,000 armed Iranians
could be on top of the American invaders in less than a single week.
as we speak, forensic experts in Baghdad are working on a full-size
Play Doh model of Saddam, based on one of his four known doubles, who
is currently hanging upside down on a nearby meat hook. When the time
is right, Wolfowitz will triumphantly unveil "Saddam's" body
in the Baghdad Morgue, and claim victory for New York and the New World
Tacit American Admission of Defeat in Iraq
Strike Jets Ready to Attack Israel
Saudi Arabia and Syria Checkmate Zionist Oil Grab
Arabia and Syria have quietly relocated their primary strike aircraft
within easy attack range of Israel, meaning the end game is fast approaching.

Ready to Vaporize the Jewish State
And then kick America out of the Eastern Hemisphere’s oilfields
When the end finally comes for Israel, it will all be over in microseconds.
Flying faster than rifle bullets,
the Sunburns will approach Tel Aviv and Haifa at twice the speed of
sound, detonating in blinding white
200 Kiloton flashes designed to instantly transform animal vegetable
and mineral into heat and light.”
Russia has deliberately sent a number of unmistakably harsh diplomatic
signals that the days of the Zionist crusaders are numbered
Put simply, America is now completely broke. The U.S. dollar is falling
like a stone and unemployment is climbing through the roof. Most of
America’s manufacturing capacity was shifted years ago to “cheap
labor” countries overseas, and there is no practical way of getting
Putin hammers the final nail into Israel’s coffin
Commits Suicide in Iraq
bottom line is that Cheney, Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld have taken the brakes
off a giant million-man Shi’ite war machine called the Mehdi Army,
and all Moqtada al-Sadr has to do now to start it rolling, is turn the
ignition key. Remember, the Shi’ite Mehdi Army brackets all American
exfiltration routes south towards Kuwait, which is the only way out
for 110,000+ American servicemen.
when Moqtada al-Sadr will pounce is hard to say. He may start attacking
convoys within weeks, or he might take the view that it would be better
to wait a few months and let the northern Sunni counter-insurgency teams
further weaken American military resolve. Either way, Moqtada al-Sadr
gets the pick of all American convoys trying to leave Iraq in a hurry,
which to borrow an old military term, means an incredibly “target
rich environment”. Do you remember the awesome devastation on
the “Highways of Death” leading out of Kuwait during Gulf
War One? Just like that, but substitute American bodies for the Iraqi
bodies you saw there thirteen years ago.
deadly danger posed by Moqtada al-Sadr’s vengeful million-man
Shi’ite Mehdi Army, which has the easy ability to cut large chunks
of the American military in Iraq to bloody ribbons, thereby severely
“undermining U.S. military resistance” to the Zionist conquest
of the Americas.
essence, the entire American continent, from Inuvik in northern Canada
to the southern tip of Tierra Del Fuego, is to be invaded and captured
for Zionist use, with the cabal exercising central command and control
from New York City, currently located in the much smaller United States
of America. Within this new massive fortress, the USA will be the focal
point of all significant economic activities, with Canada and the former
countries of Latin and South America providing the bulk of natural resources
and cheap labor.
Massacre in Fallujah - Is Miami Next?
I inserted "Miami" in the title of this report, it was not
without reason. Miami is on a short list of medium-sized American cities
targeted for Phase One of Fortress Americas, which calls initially for
local American gangs to be 'inoculated' with the fake al Qaeda 'virus',
which of course will then require armed intervention by federal authorities,
and lead to short term martial law imposed by New York. Member of armed
Miami street gangs ranging from the "10th Street Thugs" through
the "Legion of Doom" to the "Vados Locos" will all
suddenly find to their horror that they have become overnight lieutenants
of 'al Qaeda', and they will then be hunted down by federal authorities
and given the same considerate courtroom hearing as David Koresh.
Liberation of Iraq Has Begun
In the secret underworld beneath Baghdad and Mosul, Republican Guard
counter-insurgency units prepare micro nukes and binary Sarin weapons
time for American and Zionist punishment of the Iraqi people has now
passed into history, and the punishment of Americans and Zionists by
the Iraqi people is just about to begin.
Iraq-Iran Alliance Prepares to Destroy Zion
American troops remain trapped inside Vietnam-style fortified fire bases
in Iraq, their political masters in New York are realising too late
that Iran guards the only line of retreat back down the Persian Gulf.
The quasi Judeo-Christian 'Coalition of the Willing' is fast becoming
the 'Coalition of the Damned'.
Those licking their lips at the possibility of reprisals against Iran
had best shut their mouths again, because there will not be any. Every
attack jet that bursts out of an Iranian valley will be carrying the
correct insignia of the Iraqi Air Force, notionally and factually at
war with America since the illegal invasion of its sovereign territory.
It will be defense at its very best, and entirely allowable under the
umpire's rules. If the Zionists ignore the umpire and attack Iran, it
is reasonable to expect that two unstoppable Mach 2.0 supersonic nuclear
Sunburns will then be launched in the direction of Tel Aviv and Haifa.
Game, set and match.
12 August 2004
Attack on U.S. Planned for October 2004
AL'eda terrorists plan to initiate "Fortress Americas"
with several thousand dead on American East Coast
the Zionist Cabal knows only too well that it is already living on borrowed
time. Eighty seconds just happens to be the exact time cycle needed
for a complete nuclear event sufficient to transform Tel Aviv and Haifa
to glass. The only way to recruit Americans to the flagging cause of
Zionism is to first sacrifice a few thousand of them in appalling circumstances
on the eastern seaboard of America. Then, and only then, amid the terrifying
shock and horror of the dead and the slowly dying, might the American
people as a whole be convinced that the real enemy is Al Qaeda rather
than EL AL'eda.
written to Joe to ask him to explain some of these brain farts. I'll let
you know if he responds.
