iPhone apps

I actually don’t have an iPhone – just a iTouch, but I still use the little applications that you can download and install. Anyhoo – CityRail are threatening to sue a guy who developed a timetable app for the Sydney trains and ferries.

RailCorp is threatening a Sydney man with legal action after he created an iPhone application that allows people to monitor timetables for Sydney trains and ferries.

How dare someone actually try and be useful!

Psychic Predicts Aliens are coming….Today!

A MASSIVE alien spaceship is to land on Earth TODAY to prove life really is out there, an Aussie psychic insists – and bookies are so worried they stopped taking bets on it happening.

Queensland-based “channeler” Blossom Goodchild says aliens informed her of their plans that a huge intergalactic spaceship will appear over the American desert.
She said they “come in love to help us and our planet move to a new higher vibration of love”.

Well I’m glad they’re keeping someone in the loop. And personally I’m titilated at the prospect of a “higher vibration of love”

Maybe they’re here already.

So fellow blogocrats. Have you every been to see a psychic? If so, how was it? 

Better still, tell us about your alien encounter…..

Roger Moore…the worst James Bond?

According to Sir Roger Moore, he’s 80 now you know, he considers himself to be the worst Bond:

“I’m the worst Bond, according to the internet. Generally hated. I was too funny, too light. Didn’t take it seriously enough.” He seems quite proud of this. “Well, I mean, this is a man who is supposed to be a spy. And yet he turns up in bars and hotels around the world, and everyone says, ‘Ah, Mr Bond, we’ve been expecting you.’ ” Chuckle, chuckle, chuckle.

Personally I think he’s being a bit too harsh on himself. Obviously he hasn’t seen George Lazenby in “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service!”

Of course, Sean Connery was the best Bond, although I must confess Daniel Craig is giving him a close run for his money. 

So who can remember the best Bond line….?

And yes “I expect you to talk!”

Man dies after chilli-eating contest

According to News Limited,

A FORKLIFT driver who dared his friend to a chilli-eating contest died hours later.  Andrew Lee, 33, used a bag of home-grown red chillis to make the roaring-hot sauce and dared his girlfriend’s brother, Michael Chadbourne, to eat a spoonful.

Mr Lee then ate a plateful, and had a heart attack shortly after, The Daily Mail reported.

“They had a contest over who could make the hottest chilli sauce,” Mr Chadbourne’s sister, Claire, said.  “Andrew had used chillies to make Thai dishes before but had never made anything this hot .

The next morning, his girlfriend Samantha Bailey, a mother of four, found him unconscious. Paramedics later pronounced Mr Lee dead at the scene.

Now, call me old-fashioned, but I would suggest that eating an entire plate of chilli’s is not necessarily a good idea. I like the odd spicey dish, in fact, last night I made a chicken curry for dinner which had two fresh chilli’s – the little red ones, seeds n all.

It’s like these people that have hot dog eating contests. They’re just asking for a heart attack don’t you think?
