It’s time to smile and be happy. Put another log on the fire, pop the top off another bottle, and love the one you’re with. Don’t listen to the naysayers with the long faces and the tight-arsed hatred of any fun (trust me, religion doesn’t make people do that, but “religion” does… ponder that one, kids). Emulate Our Lord Christ! He turned water into wine, not wine into water (Evangelicals, take note). Remember, before you can be a good Christian, you have to be a good human being. Throw the lectures, preaching, and moralising into the shitcan… that’s NOT what Our Lord Christ did, nor should we.

A big hug from me to ALL my readers. It’s a happy time of year… it’s no time to be condemnatory. I’m working on being decent… when I reach that, I’ll tackle holiness. You can’t have the second without the first… think on that one.

Timely Intervention by Tatarstan Prokuratura Saved Child’s Life from Sectarian Nutter Parents’ Refusal of Blood Transfusion

Our kids deserve the best medical care possible… and we shouldn’t let barmy parents withold it from them on “religious” grounds.


On Monday, a spokesman for the Republic of Tatarstan Genprokurata said that it gave the necessary permission for life-saving blood transfusions and surgery for a new-born baby. The parents refused to give consent on “religious” grounds. Dr Marat Satrutdinov, chief of anaesthesiology and intensive care at the hospital where the baby was born, explained to the court that if they couldn’t perform an operation, the child would die. The court upheld the request of the medical facility, so, the doctors went on to treat the new-born, and their operation was successful. Currently, the child’s in satisfactory condition, its life isn’t in danger.

Editor’s Note:

Betcha those JWs were involved in this. They don’t muck about in Russia… religious nutters aren’t allowed to endanger kids… hell, NO ONE is allowed to endanger kids. I think that I’m on solid ground in predicting that these nutters will lose custody of the child. Good on Russia, I say…

23 June 2013. You Can’t Make Up Shit Like This… Traktorist Steals Bridge in Russia

00 Tractor in field. 23.06.13


In an age of convoluted wrongdoing, it’s refreshing to find a criminal eschewing complex machinations in favour of a hands-on approach… as a local man did in Russia’s northern Vologda Oblast, stealing a small metal bridge for scrap metal. The culprit led local police on what could well have been the most anticlimactic investigation in the history of Vologda, given that he dragged the bridge with his tractor, leaving a trail all the way to his house. The criminal turned out to be a 23-year-old local man recently released on parole, oblast police said in a statement Friday, without specifying his name or previous offence. The man faces two more years behind bars over the incident. He managed to dismantle the bridge with a welding machine, but he didn’t have the time to sell the pieces. The incident took place in the village of Frolovo, some 50 kilometres (31 miles) northeast of the city of Vologda. The cops said that the loss of the bridge left the locals without access to a spring that serves as a reserve water supply whenever the water tower in the village breaks. Russian police blamed unusual disappearances on scrap metal collectors in the past, including unsolved thefts of several steam locomotives in Krasnoyarsk Krai in 2005 and someone nicked a circus bear’s bicycle… a heavy steel structure unfit for human use… in Tatarstan last May.
