The Lord of F1 returns!!!!

A season that has already produced more than its fair share of thrills and spills just got even more exciting after it was confirmed on Wednesday that Michael Schumacher is to make a sensational comeback for Ferrari as temporary cover for the injured Felipe Massa.

"Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro intends to entrust Michael Schumacher with Felipe Massa's car until the Brazilian driver is able to race again," Ferrari announced on its website.
"Michael Schumacher has shown his willingness and in the next few days he will undergo a specific programme of preparation at the end of which it will be possible to confirm his participation in the championship starting with the European Grand Prix."

The sensational news that Michael Schumacher is to come out of retirement and step into Felipe Massa’s Ferrari while the Brazilian recovers from injury has energised an F1 fraternity still reeling from depressing recent events.

While debates will always rage about who is F1’s greatest driver of all time, Schumacher’s statistical goldrush is unrivalled, as you will see from the following comprehensive list of all the meaningful records he set in his glittering career.

Records are made to be broken, of course, but looking at some of the achievements below you wonder whether some of them will ever be eclipsed – except possibly by the great man himself if his comeback proves a success...

What a glorious day. Just thought I would take this opportunity to tell you about my morning. Sunshine, coffee, walking the doberdog nero in a meadow by the river listening to buena vista social club on my pod of i. Absolutely Superb!
But I still can't get rid of the nagging feeling that something just isn't right.
What could it be? Lets take a moment to think... Hmmm... that's it!!!
Gordon brown is a lying, corrupt, egotistical fucker and his cronies are sucking this country dry whilst at the same time making sure it is completely fucked for who ever takes power for at least the next 10 long miserable fucking years!
Ahhhh... I feel so much better now.

Peace out homies! Until next time.

No shit Sherlock!

Cocaine link to violent behaviour

Evidence has emerged which points to a link between cocaine use and violent behaviour.
Did someone actually get paid to write this shit? FFS!

Figures from Greater Manchester Police suggest that 41% of people arrested for violence had taken cocaine or crack cocaine, by itself or with other drugs.
Yes and figures released the other day by a monkey suggest hungry people eat food. COCKS!

The force took samples from 1,000 people arrested for offences such as assault, wounding and affray in the seven months to March last year.

The charity DrugScope revealed the results in its magazine, DrugLink.

Similiar findings had been reported in the Liverpool area after a separate study, run last summer by John Moores University.

Cocaine is more widely used in Britain than ever, while the average price has halved in a decade. A wrap can cost as little as £25.

Concern has grown among police forces that use of the drug in combination with alcohol may be fuelling night-time violence in pubs, clubs and city centres.
May? are you blind/stupid/a waste of tax payers money? for god's sake this has been going on for years and you write about it now! Is it any wonder this whole country is turning into a giant floating turd!? A skint one at that. Did i mention the weather was shit too?

Further research will be conducted this year, with police keen to establish whether there is a link between alcohol, cocaine and domestic violence.
How about doing some research to see if:
A) The police are a bunch of incompetent fuckwits?

B) Gordon Brown is a complete Twat?

C) This country is fucked beyond recognition and in the next 12 months it will get considerably worse?

If we weren't too busy being politically correct and stopped fucking about then perhaps there would be an opportunity to turn things around. Let's stop pandering to the human rights cock jobbers, stop throwing our money at greedy bastard bank twats, stop making excuses for scumbag street urchins, stop making british people the minority in britain, stop Gordon Brown, no, the labour party from having any say in anything and lets have a big fucking clear out. Flush the stench filled turd down the toilet and start over. Lets do it now before it is too late.

Strike a pose...

iPhone OS 3.0 is coming, preview on March 17th
by Joshua Topolsky, posted Mar 12th 2009 at 12:06PM

We just got the announcement, iPhone OS 3.0 is coming. Set your clocks, mark your calendars. It's going down March 17th. Apparently, we'll get a sneak peak at the new OS, as well as a look at a brand new version of the SDK. Exciting stuff indeed, and we'll be there live at 10am PST (1pm EST) with the liveblog. Apple's calling this an "advance preview of what we're building," so we're not expecting anything ready to go as of the 17th, but hopefully this will allow developers to start building toward future functionality (hey, how about some push notifications?), and presumably users won't have too many months to wait after that for the real deal.


Cute or Clinically insane!? You decide...

Stumbled across this on Engadget - Apparently 'Boxxy' caused a shit storm on the interwebs and the geeks nearly imploded in a civil war!
A bit unhinged... yes. Massively offensive... not really...

Judge for yourself...

I've got my eye on you! - a quick image test...

My intentions...

I am hoping to try and use this blog as an open forum for my thoughts, work and photography, on occassion i may be a little outspoken, sometimes borderline mad. Hopefully there should be a nice balance and somewhere, someone on our ever changing planet will take a little joy, interest, hope away with them...

It's been a long time...

Since i have ventured onto here. It was initially set up as an experiment as my first foray into the world of blogging but i feel the time for a comeback will soon be upon us...
