Today’s attempt, this time on mother’s hand.

What she did on her hands yesterday has now faded into a light, muted brown. I gather that it will darken with time. Wow. I had never paid attention to the process. Interesting. Well, you will learn all about it if you keep up with these posts. SMILE.

This is STUPID!

They should have done this over a year ago. Too bloody late now.

No. Doesn’t affect or impact I. I wouldn’t touch it if you had paid me. There is nothing I would need it for anyway. What it claims to do with chemicals I can do easier, at no-cost and better by just having a chat with my brain. Brain meditation. SMILE. What can I say.

Interesting that this issue was getting attention in Britain a few weeks ago. Given that I watch ‘Sky News‘ I had seen the start of this documentary. As with most such things from Britain it was well done (at least the bit that I saw).


Well, this is all interesting.

I am just going to sit back and watch the lawsuits roll in. What fun. SMILE.

Drugs! Never did ‘drugs’, never smoked and didn’t start imbibing till I was well past 21. I only had one vice and it was healthy — aerobic and kept you fit. SMILE.

I Am NOT Buying The Claim That Vegan Men Are Best In Bed — No Way.

I am going to keep this above the bed sheets (never mind the gutter) and only dispute this based on solid, scientific facts.

Veganism is NOT backed-up by human evolution. I could, at this stage, just say ‘QED’ and be done. But, some of you may not understand or appreciate.

We are here, per evolution (that no one in their right mind) denies, because of the survival of the fittest. Our fittest ancestors were meat eaters. Simple as that.

We became HUMAN because our ancestors started eating meat and chewing bones to extract marrow. Eating meat gave our ancestors more energy — a given amount of meat/marrow being more nutritional than the same amount of plant-based edibles. You still see that today. Herbivores have to eat more.

So, very simple. Our ancestors at meat, had more energy that enabled them to provide the necessary ‘fuel’ for their ever expanding brains.

Our ancestors had sex. If they didn’t we wouldn’t be here.

So, I am going with EVOLUTION. It has a proven track record.

I will now say QED.

A 16-Year Old Playing Test Cricket For Pakistan v. Australia, Naseem Shah, Is Pretty Astounding.

Yes, of course, as the top image attests, there have been younger cricketers — some of them that went onto become rather famous, and Mushtaq Mohammed was the granddaddy of them all. I had forgotten that Sachin Tendulkar made his Test debut as a 16-year old. Wow.

16!

I can kind of recall what I was like at 16.

Of course, all these folks are exceptional, prodigies with prodigious talent. But, learning that he was 16 when he came out to bat, and was facing Mitchell Starc (29), in all of fury and glory, was quite mind-blowing and humbling. Cricket is NOT what it used to be — even a decade ago, let alone 1959 when Mushtaq Mohammed came on the scene. It is much, much, much more cut-throat, competitive and, yes, even vicious — though, alas (as far as I am concerned), everyone hides and cowers under helmets.

He is a big kid and is speedy. Not sure how good he is and whether he truly deserved the call-up.

That he ‘got’ — or more to the point, thought he got — his first wicket with a NO BALL was the supreme irony. Then he had a horrendous misfield on the boundary.

Well, all eyes will be on him. I wish him well. He deserves that. But, not sure whether Pakistan has done the right thing or done him a favor.
