I thought maybe that I had missed a few weeks and it was April 1st when a colleague pointed out this article in the Metro newspaper. Are people allowed to play April 1st jokes before the date?
I know that there are a group of people out there who are completely dumb, lazy, vacuous, rich or a combination of these things and that if humanity were mainly made up of these people then the human race would be rapidly heading towards an evolutionary dead end but this really does take the biscuit 🙂
There are some of us out there who can’t even boil an egg and as such are prepared to pay for a semi prepared boiled egg which still needs to be placed in boiling water. But isn’t that what you do anyway? This must be the greatest legal confidence trick going. Next up selling packaged ice to the Eskimos.
Check this out, the Yowk at yowk.co.uk. If you buy this and then complain that you haven’t got enough money you shouldn’t be allowed out on your own as you are dangerous to the rest of us so no breeding.The yolk is on you!
I pictured this beautifully restored American car in the city of Trinidad with the Museum of the Revolution in the background. While I love cars myself (and I would like to find a way of sharing mine) I’m hoping that two things don’t happen with the thawing of US Cuban relations. The first is that these old cars don’t just get scrapped or exported to collectors in the rest of the world. They are now part of Cuba’s heritage and as such should be restored and used in Cuba. Secondly, I hope that Cuba doesn’t get flooded with new cars as that is the last thing it needs. Many of the streets are small and narrow and the Cuban cities don’t need to end up looking like any capitalist city. As Cuba is starting from scratch as it were it needs an organised scheme of shared car ownership where cars can be booked for an hour or more when needed and are placed conveniently throughout towns and cities. This in association with a decent public transport system should keep the streets clear, safe and clean and not tie up money on these expensive items which for most people sit idle for much of the day. The crazy world of the West is like it is because of poorly designed, inconvenient and expensive public transport systems. My hope that as in most other things that Cuba does that it again dares to be different. Copyright Junagarh Media, http://www.junagarhmedia.co.uk.
