Swine flu is under control – NOT!

We’ve heard it when the Xenophobic attacks started, we heard it when the recession came and now we hearing it again from the regime.

Dont worry about Swine flu everything is under control.

Health Minister Aaron Motsoaled said swine flu is under control. Times like these i want to giggle. The entire planet has a pandemic and our shores have been infiltrated by this pandemic and our Health minister says not to worry.

Classic South African style, the world is burning but we ok, we live at the bottom where the flames dont come. Yeah right.

Bind Hacker gets 30 months in prison for phreaking

Who would of thought that in this day and age you’d still get phone phreakers. What used to be fun turned out to get this blind guy in jail. This dude, a blind swatter was making phone calls to 911 tricking the operators to believe he was somewhere else, he then told the police he was high on drugs and had shot his entire family. The police then sent loads of armed gunmen employed by the government to get this tiny problem out of the way. Miles away this dude was giggling like 5 year old school girl while another house was being emptied but no gunman was insight.

How will the new Cellphone law work

 The new cellphone law comes into action tomorrow, i thought it was later today but was wrong, this new law provides way for the government to basically track anyone down. No internet service provider can use it without the written permission from a judge.

Any service provider doing so will have to pay a fine of R2 000 000 or up to 10 years in prison. But just how easy is it to get such a written piece of paper from a judge?

England is the worse place in the world to grow up children

 We were in the UK for about 1 year and 1/2 and those kids are bad, i mean they annoying, ugly and just plain bad.

The fact is most of these children are dull ( i dont know how to spell that) children, their parents wanted money, the government gives money to parents without jobs and that’s their way out.

So they get these kids they dont want, then they treat them like crap, they are basically unwanted kids. So by the time they grow up a bit they are rude and well basically left to do whatever they want to do. Like no one cares.

Bafana was impressive on Sunday scoring 2 against Spain's 3 goals

 There are a few soccer teams around the world that I like, brazil being one, spain also being one. It’s just in the last few weeks that I have started to like Bafana, but i guess now i’m a big fan as well. 

I thought they would lose far against Spain, at least 3-0 but i was amazed at how hard they played and even more amazed to see them score against Spain, maybe i underestimated the South African soccer players but when 2010 comes I will be cheering for South Africa.
