Katy Manning & DalekHi! For those of you (us!) who are Dr Who fans, this video will need NO explanation other than that fact that there have been torrential rains in the UK over the last week…. Watch the video and have a laugh!

Oh! The pic to the left is of Katy Manning who played the Dr Who companion Jo Grant to Jon Pertwee’s Dr Who. I found the (somewhat) nude photo shoot she did for Girl Illustrated in 1978 and posted them on a photo page for your enjoyment!

Love ya, Poppy xxxxxx

Fake Chinese Mushroom is a Sex Toy

no comment

Chinese mushroom vagina

A rare (fake) Chinese mushroom was seemingly unearthed in Western China the other day by workers digging a well. The object was so strange, with no one in the village ever having seen anything like it, so naturally, it ended up on the evening news. Must have been a slooooow news day. The reporter, Ye Yunfeng, described by her network as young and having led a sheltered life, went on the internet and claimed she found that the object was a rare Lingzhi mushroom valued in ancient days for its medicinal properties and ability to prolong life.

The report got the immediate attention of many viewers. Turned out the mushroom was nothing more than a double-headed sex toy with a pussy on on end and an asshole on the other. Of course, the video of the broadcast report went viral throughout China followed by the rest of the world once it got posted on YouTube. Many viewers in China said they appreciated the naivete of the reporter and the villagers.

Yu YunfengYe Yunfeng spoke with the workmen drilling the well who had uncovered the item.

“When we dug down to about 80 meters deep, we fished out this long, fleshy object. It’s got a nose and an eye, but we have no idea what it is!” one worker said, according to a translation of the video.

Ye followed up: “As we can all see, this looks like a type of fungus, on both ends of which you’ll find mushroom heads. On this side, you can see what looks like a pair of lips.” (She ain’t kidding! Watch the video!!)

“The object looks very shiny, and it feels really fleshy and meaty, too,” Ye described.

The news program producers wanted to save face and posted an apology on their website:

“As our reporter was still very young and unwise to the ways of the world, this report has brought great inconvenience to everyone. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for your criticism and correction. Please forgive our oversight!”

I’m sorry! I’m still laughing my ass off at this young reporter who is staring at what is unmistakably an open pussy and having no idea at all what it is! Even more amazing is the fact that none of the men in the village have any idea what a pussy looks like, either! Sad, sad life!

Love ya!

How to Break Your PC And What To Do About It

no comment

It’s real easy to break your PC, even easier than you think! Here’s a few ways that can happen to any of us at any time and what you can do about it:

All too true!1. You disconnect everything for one reason or another… Maybe moving your system to new location or setting up a new computer desk or even just to clean your existing desk thoroughly. You re-connect everything exactly as it was when you started, press the on/off button and nothing happens. Or if it tries to start, your display remains blank. First, check ALL your connections, ensure they are in the right place and firmly making contact. Remove the video cable and make sure none of the pins are bent or pushed back into the connector. Both ends. Use the auto-scan feature on your monitor in case you’re connected to the DVI port and it’s looking for a signal on the VGA port. Happens all the time.

Check your PC for animal hair...No luck? Remove all outboard devices from your 1394 and USB connectors except for the keyboard and mouse. Give it another try. No good? Now it’s time to get serious. Remove power from the mains and open the case. Check inside to make sure all of the motherboard connectors are securely seated. Make sure any cards you may have (i.e. video, ESATA, etc.) are firmly seated. You may want to remove any cards that are not critical to starting the system. Disconnect (power AND data) all of your hard drives with the exception of your system drive. With just the keyboard, mouse and monitor connected and with the cover still off, connect the power mains and try to start the system. If it starts, shut it down and reinstall the hardware you disconnected ONE ITEM AT A TIME to find the culprit.

Broken ComputerBe aware that if adding your third or fourth device makes the system not start, it may not be the device causing the problem, but the power supply (PSU) may have weakened over time to the point where it can no longer power up everything it once did. Speaking of PSUs, if when you try to start it and the fans in the case don’t start turning, chances are your PSU is dead. If you need to replace it, get one that is rated at the same wattage level or higher than the one you’re replacing. And buy a brand name. Read the reviews because not all PSUs are created equal.

If none of the above works, use your ears. When you first engage power, the motherboard will conduct a POST (Power On Self Test) and will generate a series of beep tones based upon the results. You have to check with your user guide or on the motherboard website for what the beeps mean because, the beep codes are not standardized and vary greatly even on different model motherboards from the same manufacturer.

Taking a hammer to it!2. You start up your system and are besieged with pop-up adverts so numerous that you can’t see your desktop and cannot navigate to any websites. You’re the victim of a drive-by infection. You may have opened an attachment in an email that you shouldn’t have or you’ve been visiting some dodgy websites. If your toolkit (MalWareByes, HiJack This!, etc.) is up to date and ready for use, have at it. You may have to run these tools more than once to clean things up. If you’re not sure what to do with the results, there are many forums and websites (Tom’s Hardware, for example) where you can post the results for analysis.

Sorry... Lost my train of thought...A more effective way of scanning the drive would be to remove it from your system and slave it or connect it as an external drive on another system and run the tools from there. This would also give you an opportunity to download the latest versions of the tools.

If the cleaning tools don’t do the job, restore the system from your latest backup. Wait.. You DO have a backup, don’t you? That’s what I thought! If nothing works and you don’t have a backup, you may be forced to format the drive and reinstall the O/S.

To Be Continued!

D-Day June 6th, 1944

Full Landing CraftToday is the 68th anniversary of the Allied Forces invasion of Normandy, perhaps the most decisive point in World War II. Of the Allied invasion force of 175,000 troops, there were 10,000 casualties of which 4,665 perished. The German Army numbered 10,000 of whom 4,000 were killed and an unknown number wounded. The largest casualties were borne by French and Polish civilians who during the uprising suffered a reported 25,000 deaths.

D-Day Landing at Omaha BeachThe assua,t beginsWhen we think of D-Day, we tend to think that it was an American and British effort. While the majority of the servicemen were American, British and Canadian, many countries were involved in D-Day. The United Kingdom attacked (code named) Gold and Sword beaches. The United States attacked Utah and Omaha beaches while Canada attacked Juno Beach. In coordination with the invasion, the Free French Underground and the Polish Resistance arose and fought to the death in their occupied villages, towns and cities. There were also contingents from Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Greece, Mexico, China and the Netherlands.

d-day03In addition to the above, the Royal Australian Air Force, Royal New Zealand Air Force, and Royal Norwegian Navy provided support for the landings.

Let us not forget the valiant men who gave their all for the cause of freedom on those rain and blood soaked French beaches, 68 years ago today.

The Pic Of The Day is usually accompanied by a pithy, witty or sarcastic comment, but for the life of me, I couldn’t come up with one, so I’ll let this pic stand on its own and just say if I were in his place, I would be very careful to not even think about breaking a law, no matter how small!

Pic of the day for today: Never, ever, EVER rely on a man to take a proper message. First off, unless it’s about them, they will not be interested and will not pay attention. Their lack of attention is compounded by the fact that they will forget they answered the phone if they happen to see something shiny before writing down said message!
