Black Holes and SSM - a union made on the football field

NONSENSE:
What would happen if a big black hole swallowed a little black hole??
So you don't lose any more sleep of this, the big hole would just get bigger and the little black hole would cease to exist.
I would include a pic of a black hole BUT nobody's seen one!
RANT:
Big Bugger isn't he [ the croc!]
How main stream media allows people with a twitter account to hijack the main conversation - what happened to good journalism - current examples are of the "uproar" about Grand Final entertainment where someone is going to send a same sex marriage anthem... who cares?? Isn't it about the football?

Molly didn't need the Law to change to be Molly

Into podcasts?? In the words of Australia's famous spruiker Molly Meldrum "Do yourself a favour" and listen to James Altucher interview the voice of Bart Simpson Nancy Cartwright. It is brilliant for the conversation, the questions, and the insight.

You can blame Molly for ABBA!

Can you put out the sun with water

Thought of Day 18/500
If you are interested in some insight to the tech boom may I suggest listening to the podcasts of Jason Calacanis. His recent book ANGEL shows [ really ] how he turned $100k into $100 m He is a seed investor in Uber now worth $70 Billion.
He says that the one overriding factor as a predictor of success is that the founder has stickability... and this carried me through the last three weeks when it seemed that every day I thought it was going to be a good day the Universe said - not yet Wayne.
Anyway, yesterday was a GOOD DAY... and it will keep me going for a few more yet.
I am thankful for:
Friends from afar - add to the list Croz and Terry
Ringo Starr of the Beatles - still going strong at 77 [ who would have thought hey and a new album out now.. ] I just love "With a Little Help from My Friends ]
The Cat Blu who didn't take "Hey I am working" as a reason why I shouldn't play with him yesterday. Hell he plays hard - I suppose it is tiger in him [ after all he is a Bengal - mini tiger ] and the scratches hurt for a while.
NONSENSE:
If we had a fire hose long enough could we put our the fire in the Sun. Apparently not... it is a nuclear fusion and water would evaporate before it could do any good.
RANT:
Australia has a shortage of gas for domestic users - what?? We are the world's biggest exporter, and we don't have any for us... bloody politicians asleep at the wheel again.
And the greenies won't let us mine any more - maybe time for that desert island guys.
I need a longer hose!
This reminds me of Ayn Rand's writings... the fiction of 70 years ago becoming true.

How can you tell if an elephant is aroused...

Thought for Today 17/500
Maybe the universe is having a rest - I woke to sales in the system, the website working still and email system performing at 100%. Sometimes stickability seems the wrong choice until it isn't. Double dutch but you know what I mean.
Yesterday Facebook Live flashed saying my friend Shazar was LIVE - there she was in India in a car reporting on her life as it happens... did I mention she is just 21+ a few years - who says this stuff is for kids.
So, here goes... Gratitude
Friends around the world... Shazar in India and a video of a bull elephant from Botswana from Deb.
Croz's Book finally arrived... just in time to piss me off [ in a good way - where is your book Wayne? way ]
Japanese lunch in Noranda - I remember eating Chinese in Bunbury when I was 7 - 59 years ago and it was so exotic! How times have changed.
NONSENSE:
Would there still be tides if the moon exploded??
apparently no... so I hope that crazy Korean guy doesn't try to blow up the moon.
RANT:
Seems I wasn't the only one who thought Channel 7 lost the plot with the Brownlow Medal. Lots of calls for Bruce to retire!

Is this a boy or girl elephant??

Is it time for Bruce to fade away....

Breathing a little easier today - with the help of Diana Ward my amazing webmaster/web host /genius the website is back up - so from Friday at 10 am to to day 7am Business Seminars Australia was a business only in my imagination - all up and running now - new website [ I learned some stuff in the last few days ] new host, new... new... new - old one still RS [ and boss doesn't give a shit]. And a favourable mention for a young man in Manilla from Telstra who not only fixed my issues on Sunday, rang me yesterday to see if everything was still working... I nearly fell down with shock BUT how is that!
So I am grateful for:
Diana again
Patience mine although those around me weren't so sure you would call it that.
and Terry and Elizabeth checking I was OK
Thanks everyone.
NONSENSE:
Did you know that scientists are divided on whether dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago or not... If they didn't which ones have survived... well birds are just miniature dinosaurs!
RANT:
Bruce McAvaney has reached his use by date - do a Denis Commetti and retire mate. If Dusty Martin wasn't such a young good mannered tattoo hero, you would have spoiled the Brownlow telecast!

NOT YOUR STAGE BRUCE....

Banks are trying to change their spots - that will work!! NOT

Thought of the day 15/500
At the morning office... whilst my childhood was around rain - the saying in Margaret River back then rain for 9 months and then it dripped off tree for the rest of the time... another day of grey skies and rain is just not Perth - even it being a public holiday doesn't help. Rain Rain go away I say [ and bugger the farmers ]
OK lets feel better -
I am grateful for:
Telstra - to remind me that you can be so big that to care isn't a requirement. I was so exhausted after 2 hours to get an issue fixed that I slept well last night.
GOGVO - not big enough to care at all - website [ and cashflow ] down now going on 4 days and Joel [ the man ] says "What do you want me to do?? Simple really FIX IT!
And Banks - finally giving up the $2 gouge to get my own money from a cash machine... in a day all four big banks gave in... they must be hiding something.
NONSENSE:
After a good nights sleep, I wonder who else lie down to sleep - apparently elephants do but not giraffes. Cows do sometime and small animals like cats not only lie down, they curl up, sleep between your feet and control their environment. Oh to be a cat!
RANT:
Shane Warne and the medias fascination with his sex life.
He is headline news again for apparently hitting a porn star!! Hell isn't there a war or famine to report.


In a recent poll in the UK, a group of women were asked "Would you sleep with Shane Warne" The most common answer was "Not again."

Bats.. why do they sleep upside down?

Why do bats hand up side down [ perch ] while birds perch the right way up??
Have you ever seen something so cute?
The wonders of nature... bats can fly upside down and see places to "perch" like roofs of caves which have no other creatures to crowd them out... and birds have to sleep half their brain a time... bats can die stuck to the roof where as birds just "drop off the perch"

Petrol Pricing - why is it cheaper on Monday?

Thoughts for Today 12/500
The weather is still rainy in Perth.. that's right it is the local football grand final AND the Royal Show - it ALWAYS rains for them... so it should be good next week!
Gratitude List:
Small actions mean so much. We visited an elderly aunt who has given up on having to get ready every day. My sister is a hairdresser - oh what a nice hair do, a little bit of colour and some lippy - the difference was amazing bot for my aunt and for my sister... the ability to do little things!
How e love the BIG animals... Perth Zoo have just received their new giraffe - and everyone one is talking about it. Whether they should be in Zoos is another thing but hey it beats rich dentists shooting them for "pleasure."
Change - not always good but always thought provoking! On my travels today I thought I would stop and have a quick look at the latest Musical instruments at shop that has been there for the 45 years I have been in Perth. Holy Shit - a 24 hour gym was there - no place to twinkle the ivories... Good or bad but I have the luxury of thinking what I want to think.
Have you wondered why hens cackle after laying an egg?? Well I have... the things that amuse. Apparently it is a mating call and is the rooster so he knows she is ready! I always wondered why a rooster with 20 hens always looked stuffed... well now I know.
RANT:
Petrol price cycle. I paid $1.02 for litre of petrol on Monday - today at the service station I walked passed to get here it was $1.33 a litre - what other product or service could raise its price 30% in 3 days and get away with it??
They can't blame all the obvious things - the $$ has appreciated and the price of a barrel of oil has gone down - both should have made petrol cheaper.
They take us for fools... and we play along - waiting the to cheapest day in the price cycle to buy.
Quick before it goes UP!
I had this strange though - maybe it is a staff rostering trick?

Dung Beetles Doing Their Thing

Thought for Today 12/500
Everyday I learn more about the system... I uploaded the wrong type of image yesterday - a animated gif - and Facebook wiped out my words... I didn't realise that is what happen before but twice a got the lesson, and I will guard against doing it 3 times!!
My sister is visiting and as always, she is good for a laugh. So I am grateful for laughter - helped by big doses of Mrs Browns Boys!!
Rain and nature for the renewal it brings.
And Donald Trump who is giving those "who are always right" so much to write about.
The wet weather will be great for the dung beetles in Western Australia - and they are natures fly control squad. Dry weather means no beetles and millions of flies... so, a bit of sun and everything will be great....
RANT
Why do the main stream media make such a thing about sports stars... by creating role models to aspire to they glorify short term fame above work. I don't know, maybe you can aspire to be the world Champion of marbles and the world will beat a path to your door... maybe!!

Getting Old Doesn't Have To Suck

"Are all politicians liars" Wayne Mansfield
Thought for today 11/500

I have already written this before... and I wanted to load a pic of Pinocchio but it was a .gif and that stuffed everything up. I shall not do that again or it should be in a different order.


OK what am I grateful for:

Today I realised that I am of the age where previous generations were in real trouble... my grandmother died of old age at 63, I have lived 10 years longer than my own mother [ who died youn ] and I am in spitting distance of outlasting the years on the clock of my dad. So, I am grateful "Getting Old Doesn't Have To Suck"

I can truly see another 20 years into the future and I read that scientists have agreed on 117 as the normal "end of life" And I am reminded that the age pension was set at 65 when the majority of people died before 40!

Reading - I am grateful for reading so I can continue to experience new things and also that I was "experimented on" at school and taught speed reading so I can read a book a day.

A Nonsense:

What would happen if we stopped collecting honey - would we drown in the stuff... Now that would be a sticky ending.

THE RANT.

Why do we let politicians get away with election lies?? The Labour Party in Western Australia got in on a promise of NO NEW TAXES... and now we have street protests in Kalgoorlie due to a Gold Levy [ Hey that isn't a tax?? ]

so as long as we still elect the best liars we will still get shit politicians

Why don't Ladybirds fly away in fear

Thoughts of the Day 10/500
So today I am writing before 6 am I thought as you got older you slept more... apparently not!
What three things am I grateful for today [ there are more but I will share 3 so you get the picture... ]
Nicole Kidman such an Australian Treasure - she is always great value for those idiots in the popular press. I think she was with Keith who the Woman's Weekly says she has divorced recently [ funny that ] and she kissed her co-star from the series she one the Emmy for - I think she funded the series too and she forgot to mention her kids with Mr Kruse but wasn't that the daughter that didn't invite her to her wedding... but after all, people they are actors!
And I really like Foxtel because they give the ABC something to measure themselves against - they are so polar that the middle is always sensible.
And AGL for running ads of their power station being reduced to rubble will hawking it to Malcolm...
And I should add a clear brain so I can enjoy this nonsense!
Why don't Ladybird Beetles fly away?
Apparently they are so sure they smell terrible that they have no reason to scurry away when we get close. I also hear that they are poisonous to eat but I haven't tried one yet.
RANT
Why does main stream media continue to show scenes of "conflict" about the same sex marriage debate. If we just let people ticket their form in the privacy of their own space and get on with it.... I am sure life would be better.
This is NOT Wayne Mansfield
But hey, screaming professional uni students make good reality TV and you don't have to pay them. Cheap talent!

Gambling Ads - no more please

Thought of the Day 9/500
The inner ramblings of Wayne Mansfield
As always, let's start with what I am grateful for:
That I can contemplate taking a holiday cruising the Mediterranean next year with Joanne for here 65th.
Pressure sprays so I can try and remove clover from my front lawn
Scanners - so I can send details to a friend and not have to reenter stuff
All of these are actually the fantastic result of being born into the first world - a 1% problem which is a joy really.
Interesting Uses for Red Wine - Fruit fly trap.
Apparently fruit flies LOVE red wine - so I am allowed to drink empty a fruit fly trap - otherwise known as Merlot - and then place it next to Joanne's fruit trees. We will see!
RANT:
I haven't ever smoked, I love a red wine and other vices BUT everywhere the gambling ads!! Give me a break guys - I have been watching nirmal television a bit more in the last few weeks with the arrival of the IQ3 box from Foxtel and it seems 2 out of 3 ads are for gambling - of course the government gets its cut so they want it to continue... but hell, not everyone wants to lose or do they?? [ Gamble responsibly - what a joke! ]
So you can find me:

False headlines... Wayne Mansfield

Why Can't we see under water


Thought for today
8 / 500
So to start to Sunday morning... apart for feeling deflated because my football team [ The West Coast Eagles ] when down without much fight, here are a few things I am grateful for:
Stevie J the wonder man still giving fans joy - even if he isn't playing in the right colours - and to bring that joy to me, live full colour Television - as a kid in Margaret River in the 1960's we had TV which needed a 100 ft aerial to get a signal and sometimes it was the South Australian ABC instead of Perth and there was this amazing thing called a test pattern which we watched for hours. We had real football then with the West Perth team being my favourite
Shirley from down the road - her cauliflower pickles was a amazing - home made stuff is amazing!
And my Victa Mower - I get unbelievable pleasure mowing that small piece of verge lawn.
And my RANT:
False headlines.... Margaret Court seems to be an easy target - the headline says she has been kicked out of her Tennis Club due to firmly held views of traditional marriage where the article says she was a losing candidate in an election for a patron who could give the tennis club lots of time. Why has our traditional media gone to the click bait model. No wonder they are now consider irrelevant.
And my daily Brain Puzzle - why can fish see better under water that humans??
Apparently it is because our [ human ] eyes are more water like than fish's and therefore don't refract light in a way that gives clear vision. In simple terms, fish eyes are more glass like than ours.
