Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

In Russia, havoc is imminent in 3, 2, 1…

Had to include this Russian pic I found.

The dangers associated with shining laser pointers at aircraft pale into insignificance when compared to the consequences of abusing the ‘Red Dot’ with your cat, or cats.

I want to believe

Sadly, not spotted by me, but found online, and another that is too good not to share.

I didn’t get it at first, but that was my own fault as I did not look at the whole thing, from top to bottom 🙂

We’re so poor in the east end, we don’t even get proper bus stops now

I’m always amused at how the media and certain others love to paint the east end of Glasgow as a poverty-stricken area.

One where I find myself almost having to climb over giant SUVs just to cross the road, and suffering serious envy symptoms as the number of Audis, BMWs, and Mercedes grows to the extent I expect Ford and Vauxhall to announce closure any day soon.

It nice to get the odd reminder of how bad things are here, and I gathered this piece of evidence last night.

We’re so poor here, we don’t even rate standard bus stops on metal poles now.

We have to make our own from odd pieces of wooden scrap, and stick a photocopied image of a real bus stop to the top.

Poor Bus Stop

It’s irony, get used to it.

In fact, it’s the unwashed getting fibre installed (the street behind is all dug up with trenches and conduits being laid for the new cables).

Well, they need something to spend their benefits on, and keep the new flat-screen telly supplied with stuff to watch so they don’t have to lie around bored all day.

And it keeps them indoors, not following me along the road, trying to sell me strange stuff wrapped up in little brown bags.

Assuming this is a hairdresser’s car, is it for a successful hairdresser that fixes this, or far a failed hairdresser that causes it?



(It’s been shuffled onto an Audi since being caught here).

Latest from Loch Ness

Just spotted this in a forum.

Surely this latest pic means there can be no longer be any doubt about what is in Loch Ness?*

Sad dog is sad

This guy was looking at me as if to say “Do they mean dog years or human years?”

While it may not be accurate (it’s more complex than a simple equivalence), it’s often taken that one dog year is about seven human years.

This means things are quite good for them if it’s dog years, since a dog will be in its twenties by the time it has been around for more than two human years.

But the other side of this thought is that if our dog has to wait for 25 human years – well, by then it’s going to be something like 150 dog years.

And that’s maybe the thought this little face is conveying.

Sometimes English are smarter than Scots

In Scotland, it seems to the ‘In Thing’ to whine about so-called child poverty, and rather than do anything about it, keep inventing new definitions so that more and more occurrences can be claimed (and political Brownie Points scored).

‘Intense’ child poverty in affluent areas of Scotland

In England, they don’t bother whining, and organise solutions…

Flat earth fun is back – meet the Flatards

After having a bit of fun, the only response one can reasonably have when the flat-earthers insulted the whole of Scotland when they reportedly took over a shop unit in Inverness, is a quick burst of hysterical laughter.

It’s probably safe, and according to at least one old saying, ‘Laughter is the Best Medicine’.

I saw this the other day, the truly fitting and excellent appropriate word – FLATARDS.

Lovely 🙂
