Homeland Insecurity

As ever, it’s a joy to find someone else who has eloquently explained why I no longer want to visit America. I actually put in someone’s comments this morning that I’d go back to America when it was a great country again, hopefully some time next year because if Bush gets in for another term there may not be anything left to rescue.

LQ – Fun and Frolics with guns

For the year ahead, an idea is to start weekly LQ games, possibly 2, as a fun way of getting back in shape after the christmas splurge. Probably have one solo game, where everyone one is a target and depending on what you score try to average out the teams for a team game next. The idea of doing the team game second also means you are less likely to kill yourself with too much exercise. It is open to our friends, hopefully we can get enough people together to hire the whole arena, the one on whitworth st. So if you are interested then simply add yourself to the comments. We might have to find out who wishes to go on a week by week basis to the games, as I am sure there are going to be reasons why people wish to miss certain weeks, so we might have to start up a mailing list or do a blog call of who is going to turn up so we can advertise on spinneyhead any spare places.

Common Ground USA is marketing a range of hip-hop “flava’d” condoms as a way to promote safe sex.

“We say abstinence is the only way that you’re going to be OK. But the fact of the matter is, we can’t hide and think that they’re going to stop having sex.”

Which is a refreshingly sane approach to teen sex.

To appeal to youth, the condoms are named “Great Dane” and “Rottweiler” and come in shiny wrappers adorned with a cartoon dog wearing a thick gold chain.

But you have to pity the poor guys who find they only need the “Chihuahua” rubbers.
