So Frigging Mad At Sri Lanka’s Cry-Baby, Unsportsmanlike Test Cricketers: Take The Ball And GO HOME!

by Anura Guruge

That is why the school I attended in London had this very profound saying: “Play the White Man“.

The frigging Sri Lankans, in the 2nd match against the Windies, in St Lucia, were were frigging disgrace. They acted just like brown guys and that irks me because it makes all of us brown guys look bad.

Refusing to PLAY is a heinous crime when it comes to cricket.

I blame the umpires. They should NOT have pandered to these big cry-babies. When they didn’t take the field at the appointed hour the game should have been awarded to the Windies.

They buggers should just take their ball, tampered or otherwise, pack their bloody bags and go back to where they came from.

We do NOT need them.

They are BAD news to cricket.

I hope the ICC ban them for 1,000 years!

Am I mad. Yes. I am frigging mad.

I hate to see MY CRICKET disrespected.

You know this is why there is an expression: “just not cricket”.

The bloody Sri Lankans definitely did NOT play cricket.

Bunch of cry babies.


Another time they acted up like buffoons.

Why I Am Way Beyond Being An Atheist: Part II … Floods At Lourdes, The Marian Miracle Center Of The Universe.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.

From Facebook.


Lourdes with its Marian (i.e., Virgin Mary, mother of Christ) Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes — the place that millions visit a year to pray for miracles!

This is why the 2nd image (above) just cracked me up. They want us to pray for Lourdes. Sacré bleu. People go to Lourdes to pray — and now you want us to pray for Lourdes. That is like being told to bring coal to Newcastle!

If the Virgin Mary has decided to turn a blind eye on Lourdes, her spiritual home on earth, who am I to try and intercede. She, according to her army of followers, is all powerful. So, my take is very simplistic. I am going to let her take care of this.

This Is Why I Am Way Beyond Being An Atheist … I Do Not Believe In Any Religion.

by Anura Guruge

IF I were to believe in a God or even a god I would expect better. Jeee, this guy is supposed to be doing God’s work. Never made sense to me … church buses crashing, pastors getting killed in church. This is why when I was about 18 I gave up on all religions. It was very easy for I.

Just the other day I posted about this Sri Lankan who is utterly devoted to God but God forsakes him more often than not!

Anywho … when I saw this crocodile story it did crack me up. I am sorry. I can’t help my perverse sense of humor.

Enough said …

Sri Lanka’s Constantly ‘Thanking God’ Niroshan Dickwella Is Run Out — Did God Forsake Him!

by Anura Guruge

Another example. Note hand is higher. Closer to grill.


The 1st innings run out. June 8, 2018. From YouTube. youtube.com/watch?v=p-ZtuDHnhsY

Yes, of course, a lot of cricketers from various countries seek divine help especially when they are batting — and give ‘thanks’ — with eyes pointing up — when they reach a meaningful milestone.

Sri Lanka’s obviously Christian Niroshan Dickwella (from Sri Lanka’s 10% Christian minority) has taken this to ridiculous extremes.

When he is batting he is INCESSANTLY ‘crossing’ himself. Yes, some players do that once when they first come in … Not, Dickwella. He is crossing himself every few minutes. He kind of gets distracting and obnoxious.

But, we cricketers are a superstitious lot and I will indulge Dickwella in his giving thanks to God — so blatantly and constantly.

What puzzles me is how he reconciles his faith and trust in God when he gets out — especially this run out, on Day 3 (June 8, 2018) of the 1st Test against the Windies. It was pretty stupid. He was strolling oblivious that Braithwaite was going to take a shy at the stumps. Now God could have saved him. But, God forsook him! What does he do then? You don’t see him crossing himself when he gets out (or drops a catch).

That is my dilema. How does he rationalize his failures?

He also got suspended by the ICC for two ODI matches. God didn’t bail him out. But, he seems to ignore these let downs. Strange. Very strange.

Anthony Bourdain Should Have Walked 100-Yards In My Shoes To Appreciate How Awesome His Life Was!

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE.




As the above two prior posts clearly demonstrate, I have absolutely NO bloody SYMPATHY for these spoilt, self-indulgent rich buffoons. What I have is total and utter contempt. They deserve to die.

Bourdain, from what I can see was the WORST of the recent bunch.

He left a 11-year old daughter.

He was a PIG for doing that.

I have a 12-year old daughter. I live for HER.

Bourdain, there was always something about YOU that never clicked with me. I kind of had a suspicion that you were a fraud, a con-artist.

Well, others can sign your praises. Not I.

They should try my life — even for just a day. I don’t have the fame or fortune. I haven’t visited France in nearly 25-years (and I fully appreciate that there are billions that have never visited France). IF I can go through life, daily, at 64, with nothing like the life that these celebrities live, why should I feel sorry for them. Their lives can’t be anything as bad as mine.

Yes, this will offend some, BUT somebody has to say this and somebody has to stand up and be counted. And I am.

Windies v Sri Lanka 1st Test In Trinidad Being Played In An Empty Stadium.

by Anura Guruge



This was worse than the proverbial ‘one man and his dog’ because I couldn’t even spot a dog on the ground.

I think the crowd size was less than 100. Tops …. maximum counting all the staff etc. 250. It was a picture of space and emptiness.

Also, compared to other venues there was an acute shortage of advertising. First time in YEARS that I have actually see the boundary rope — sans advertising cushions.

No wonder the West Indies have financial troubles. The only revenue would have been from TV rights.

This is crazy. I know they all have to play a certain number of Tests to retain Test status but this was not the right series. They would have been better off not having any Tests and playing a few ODIs and T20s.

New Study Shows That Sri Lanka Has The 4th LOWEST Rate Of Cancer Worldwide.

by Anura Guruge


Click here to find out more about the organization that did the research.


Click to ENLARGE. Use link above to access the data.


I am not sure what to make of this. I read about the study in the U.K. “Daily Mail” my primary source of news. I then went to the original source to make sure it was kosher.

It is a credible institution. I have come across them before. They are associated with the ‘University of Washington‘ and get funding from the Bill Gates’ charitable foundation.

What concerns me about these findings is the accuracy of the data provided — by the countries. That the lowest levels are among ‘developing’ countries while the highest rates are among the ‘developed’ countries give me pause for thought.

How many cases in rural areas go untreated and as such undocumented and unreported?

But, it is also possible that we have lower incidence of cancer — though, of course, I know Sri Lankans who have had cancer.

I am just bringing it to your attention.

You check it out.
