Alien Woman Shouting To Her Family - "Sweetheart - Supper's Ready!"

Alien Woman Shouting To Her Family – “Sweetheart – Supper’s Ready!”

Humankind is supposed to have developed into a super intelligent species here on Earth, but it’s amazing how many loonies still live among us. Ever since the Mars Rover landed on the planet and started driving around the surface all sorts of people have come up with the most ridiculous stories and theories the world has ever heard.

These people are the so-called UFO hunters, and they have been busy filing reports of alien life, animals, statues and spacecraft on the surface of Mars. According to them there has been and still is life on Mars, even though scientists have proven that it is a dead planet.

As more photos of alien beings, animals and even spacecraft emerge on the web I have to admit that some people can be very inventive, and are probably very good at using Photoshop. Just because the sun’s light catches a rock at a certain angle they immediately jump to the conclusion that it is a statue or an alien, or even an animal. There is no end to the inventiveness of some of these people. Take a look at the following and see what you think:

See what I mean! Scientists have proven that Mars is a dead planet but that does not stop the weirdo’s among us from coming up with all sorts of wild theories.

All you can say about them is that it does give you a chance of a chuckle now and then.

The UK’s Two-Faced Stance On Cybercrime

Posted in Britain, England, Extradition, Government, Hacker, Hackers, Health, Insanity, MP's, Police, Prison, Teens, UK, USA with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 12/07/2011 by floroy1942

I couldn’t help but laugh when I read an article about the Home Office stance on cyber-crime last week, when Crime and Security Minister James Brokenshire said at the International Cyber Security Protection Alliance launch that “there should be no safe havens for cyber-criminals”! He called for  ‘international treaties, bilateral treaties, and common agreements between nations to make sure miscreants active outside their home country can be prosecuted when scams and hacks take place’.

Can’t Touch Me-I’ve Got Asperger’s!

I definitely agree with the statement, but I couldn’t help feeling it was two-faced considering the case of Gary McKinnon, who was arrested in Britain in 2002 for hacking into Pentagon and NASA computer systems. He caused hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage and is still wriggling his way out of deportation to the States for trial after nine years. The US government has been trying to have him extradited since 2002 when the FBI and British police tracked him down. Initially, his defence stated he was looking for evidence of UFO’s, but when that didn’t seem to work they suddenly found out he was suffering from Aspeger’s Syndrome. How convenient!

The sad thing is, as the case drags on people are now feeling sorry for him and want him released. It’s ridiculous! They seem to have totally forgotten that he is a criminal and deserves punishment. It’s people like him that cause misery, expense, and often despair among computer users across the globe.

It is worthy to note that Asperger’s Syndrome did not appear to have any impact McKinnon’s ability to answer questions or explain himself during this interview. In fact, he came across as a perfectly normal person and much more intelligent than the two fawning interviewers who did nothing to hide their sympathy and support for him. To me, this man’s ‘defence’ is the weakest I have ever heard!

Ryan Cleary-That’s Funny So Have I!

Ryan Cleary, who is alleged to be a member of the now defunct Lulzec Group was caught a couple of weeks ago. Cleary, who is said to be highly intelligent, is going down the same road as McKinnon by claiming he too suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome, and if these two stick to their stories they may never face trial.

“Asperger’s Syndrome is distinguished by a pattern of symptoms rather than a single symptom. It is characterized by qualitative impairment in social interaction, by stereotyped and restricted patterns of behavior, activities and interests, and by no clinically significant delay in cognitive development or general delay in language. Intense preoccupation with a narrow subject, one-sided verbosity, restricted prosody, and physical clumsiness are typical of the condition, but are not required for diagnosis.” Quote from Wikipedia.

What this says in a nutshell is that a sufferer does not mix with others well, and suffers excessive concentration and attention on a single subject. It however goes on to say there is no significant impairment of cognitive development (i.e. relating to the process of acquiring knowledge by the use of reasoning, intuition, or perception) or general delay in language (i.e. no speech or understanding impairment).

Now to me, this does not mean these two have any excuse for ducking the legal process, or for that matter, deportation when required by another government. They may not be functioning the full 100%, but close enough to it to face their comeuppance.

So this whole scenario makes the statement by Brokenshire somewhat of a barefaced lie. You cannot go around asking other countries to stop being a haven for cyber-criminals when we ourselves do just that. Every hacker, spammer, and cyber-criminal who gets caught can just claim to have Aspergers Syndrome and walk free!

Do As You Would Be Done By?

But there again, why not? Stranger things have happened within the British justice system! It seems the Home Office have forgotten the old saying: “If you wish to lead, lead by example!”

Crazy! You Couldn’t Make It Up. Series 1 Episode 7

Posted in Britain, England, Insanity, Modern World, Prison, UK with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 18/04/2010 by floroy1942

Last week has seen a bumper crop of weird news stories. Everything from an actors embarrassing moment, to prisoners making an imaginative escape.

Actor Channing Tatum was rushed to hospital during filming of his latest movie, The Eagle of the Ninth, with a rather embarrassing complaint. Many scenes called for him to wade through ice-cold water, and to protect him from the freezing temperatures a mixture of boiling and cold water was poured into his wet suit. It would seem someone in the film crew forgot to mix the boiling water with some cold to cool it down a bit and poor old Channing ended up getting his manhood severely scolded. Thankfully, after treatment he was, in his own words, “…..back on top, ….back in the game.” He could probably use the same advice I gave to a friend while he was deciding whether to get married or not; ‘Test the waters Old Boy, test the waters!!!”

Administrative bungling by governmental departments are nothing new as we all know, but a case this last week must rank among the top ten. Terence and Marilyn Walker, a retired couple who live in Cheadle Hulme Manchester, both sent their passports away for renewal. When they got them back, Marilyn Walker found the Passport Office had put her husbands photo in her passport! Much has been done to make British passports difficult to forge and various security checks are incorporated, such as holograms, laser dots and complicated watermarks, but it would seem the powers that be did not take into consideration one vital component – human error!!!

Argentinean Prison Officials have a great amount of egg on their faces after it was revealed that two prisoners, Maximiliano Pereyra and Arial Diaz, managed to escape from a top security prison near La Almeda dressed as sheep. It would seem they stole complete skins from a local ranch and after putting them on, along with a realistic looking sheep’s head, mingled with the sheep. Police officials have been quoted as saying that to identify the pair among a herd of a thousand sheep was impossible. Local people had seen the pair running through the fields at night and reported it. An obvious solution to the problem does come to mind. Release a few rams into the flock and grab the two ‘sheep’ that stand up and try to run!!!

An Australian publishing firm made a costly mistake when they printed a cookbook with a ‘minor’ typing error. The book, The Pasta Bible’, contained a recipe for tagliatelli with prawns and proscuitto which called for the adding of ‘salt and freshly ground black people’. It should have read ‘salt and freshly ground pepper’ but the mistake was discovered in time and 7,000 books had to be destroyed and a re-print ordered. That’s what happens when you trust a computer to proof-read something!!!

We all make mistakes, but it becomes extremely annoying when someone else’s error costs you a small fortune. Such is the case with a UK housewife and her electricity company. A Miss Drummond of Brampton in Cambridgeshire recently received an electricity bill for £10,196.59 because the company had been reading her meter wrongly, saying that is what she owed them. Miss Drummond said she had always been careful to check the usage and pay her bills on time, but this floored her. It would seem the company had only been reading four digits on her meter for the previous four years, but when they recently started to read five digits the error came to light. More fool them I say. It’s their mistake they should carry the loss. It wouldn’t be the first time someone got their digits in a mess, ask Channing Tatum!!!

What do you call a butcher without a sharp knife? Answer: A waste of space! But that does not seem to apply to the UK supermarket chain Sainsbury’s. A man went into the Penylan store in Cardiff and asked the butcher to remove the bone from a joint of lamb, only to be told that he couldn’t since his boss had told him he could not use a knife because he might cut himself! More Health and Safety madness! The butcher had been cutting meat for thirty years and had taught many of the young butchers how to cut meat but now he could not use a knife. The man went to the information desk and was told it was company policy for the butcher’s own safety. A spokesman for Sainsbury’s said all their butchers got special training on how not to cut themselves but the one in question had not received all the training. So what has he been doing for the last thirty years, slicing meat with his teeth???

An American university professor has gone on record advocating that UFO studies become a university legitimate subject. A lecturer at Niagra County Community College, Professor Phillip Hasely said that there are sufficient unknown and unexplained phenomena to warrant such a step. You can imagine the interview for some high flying job can’t you. Interviewer: “So you went to university did you?” Applicant: “Yes Sir” Interviewer: “What was your degree for young man?” Applicant: Unexplained Flying Objects Sir” Interviewer: “Thank you……NEXT!” Does anyone really believe we have been visited by aliens? I can just imagine the conversation when the explorer got back to the mother ship. “Find anything?” “Nah! Just some sub-culture with illusions of grandeur. Lets go!”

Until next time.

Roy.
