Yay cats!

 

 

 

 

 

 

We agree!  We had three, old one died, very sad. Other one was run over a week ago, also very very sad. The one left is a loner, used to be mildly aggressive to the other two, but she misses them, we could see that after each passing.

Indeed sad. It is gut-wrenching to lose a friend like that. My condolences.

Stupid as hell banner ads claiming you're the millionth visitor and you could win a prize.

 

Thank GOD GeekZone doesn't have garbage ads like that.

Shouldn't that be 'Thank Memuneh!'?

Noelle our kitten typing gibberish on the laptop.

 

 

But if you let her type long enough eventually she will type out the complete works of William Sheakespeare.

The New Zealand collective hatred of dogs annoys me.

 

 

 

 

Not heard of the one before, I think we are very much a dog liking nation. Staffy's and other fighting bred dogs, not so much

 

 

 

 

Really? You think a nation where dogs are banned from almost every public space, national park, open area, pub, CBD, hotel, camp ground etc is a "dog liking nation"?

Staffy's aren't fighting dogs. American staffy's (which are not staffy's) and pit bulls are very different in nature to a British Staffordshire terrier.

Tough one - generally I'm keen on dogs, cats, chickens, etc, but dog owners, yeah, that's another matter. Large dogs in small terraced homes, with the dogs not walked, socialised, and howling, yapping all day long, and the owners oblivious to the discord they produce.

 

Bah

Whoever thought making the backspace key act as a browser back button was a good idea.

 

They annoy me.

 

 

I think it's a good idea  - not like you can use the back-arrow key or anything to flip back thru pages.

 

I use the backspace key all the time ... especially following Google searches ...

I have two responses to this. The first is 'Resenting those who have it better than you.' 

 

The more thoughtful one is that those who get everything on a golden platter usually turn out to be fairly miserable. Working for stuff helps give you a sense of worth and having a proper place in society. It also builds character. I think envy of those who have it easy is probably misplaced in most cases. They don't have it easy, they just have different problems. There are an awful lot of silver spoon alcoholics, drug addicts and plain unpleasant jerks taking up space in the world. There are also some born into wealth and privilege who don't make the mistake of taking the easy path. I am absolutely no fan of the monarchy but William and Harry do seem to actually be doing something with their lives and not just living it up on the royal purse. Either they have wisdom or good advisors.

 

Don't worry about those better off than you. Just focus on living your own life as well as you can and it will almost certainly turn out a lot more rewarding than those other ones.
