Vikings

They've invaded in the past and they seem to continue to want to do so...

In the middles ages we were plagued by viking longships, they patrolled the coast, spotted what they wanted, invaded, sacked churches, etc and over time they became us (we know the romans left and the saxons were defeated by the normans - who were also descended from norsemen - so they must still be here, ie us). It will have been their genes that added the blondes and gingers to our population...

Now they are again invading with their massive blue and yellow ikea superstores... Instead of axes and swords they are now wielding furniture combinations and changing the face of British decor. Some people seem incapable of furnishing their homes with anything else - why don't they just f-off to Sweden and do it properly...
Over time the founder (and inventor of flat pack furniture), Inkblot Kampfire or whatever his name is (turn out its Ingvar Kamprad), has become one of the richest people on Earth (if not the richest, when currency fluctuations are in his favour), yet he still cannot use simple letters or numbers to label his stuff - it has to be a CRAPPY table set or a BOLARX bedroom suite. It makes you wonder if Eric Bloodaxe called them CHOPPA axes and STIKYU swords and adds a whole new set of suite of innuendo to our language that has not been seen since the 'cream of sum yung guy' type jokes when Chinese meals were new...

Dr Who Finale

Ok - the Daleks came from a void ship so they were covered in 'void stuff' and the 'ghost' cybermen came through the bridge so they were covered in 'void stuff'... but some of the cybermen were manufactured on earth - so why were they sucked into the void?

I suppose they could have brought the raw materials with them and so manufactured cybermen would qualify, but that sounds like a cop out as we never saw them bring anything (like we did with the daleks and the 'genesis arc')

This episode pair was an improvement on the general episodes from this series, but I think that is now it for me - I don't like this weasel faced doc so I'm giving up...

Taxi for France…

Italy have managed to reverse their problems taking penalties and won the world cup - hopefully England will take heart that it can be done if the players try hard enough.

Justice was finally done in France failing, but what was Zidane thinking? The lunatic got what he deserved...

Independence Day?

The future Greater Republic of Mexico celebrates the cessation of it being part of the colonies today...

I still don't think they realise we are glad to be rid of it and didn't put up much of a fight at the time. Look at the trouble we have had running the bits that are left, or even the mainland for that matter...

I think the US are now beginning to realise how difficult it is to run a foreign country with the trouble they are having with Iraq (and the need for them to claim it is a coalition when it clearly is not).

At least the internet will be quieter today while the lardies have a day off work and fill their faces at the BBQ!

Taxi for England…

Our overpaid underachieving prima donnas do it again, or don't - whichever is your perspective.

The team kept promising the best was yet to come (after each preceeding poor performance), but it never did...

Perhaps they should have spent less time making 'keepy uppy' TV ads and more on learning tactics, basic ball skills and how to attack and break down their prospective opposition.

To make matters worse France have just eliminated Brazil. Just goes to show that CHEATING gets you everywhere, I know they didn't tonight, but they wouldn't have made it this far without CHEATING!

Portugal knew exactly what to do to break us down and went about it before the first kick of the game with Christina (sic) Ronaldo headbutting his so called teammate Rooney to begin the process of getting him mad.

I don't blame Rooney, its in his phsyche to be a looney. I think the wrong team went (selection wise), the wrong teams were selected for each game, tactics were too conservative, we defended (poorly) too deep and highly paid stars did bugger all (I never seen Frank Lampard so ineffective with the ball in front of goal), and then there's our old favourite - penalties, they say there isn't the pressure when practising, perhaps they should introduce some by saying 'no score, no pay' and see if they step up to the mark...
