Ok I'll get right to it. Since everyone and their mother is discussing the Oscar Pistorius incident, in which he allegedly fatally shot his girlfriend, I will weigh in with my considered 2c worth. Firstly, like a friend of mine very succinctly observed, when one hears someone entering your house, surely the protocol is to at least warn them you have a firearm before squeezing off a few, especially if your girlfriend has keys. Secondly, I hate myself for thinking all the jokes that inevitably come out following such a tragedy are funny, but some of them really are. And lastly, I would like to point out that it is a sad indictment on modern life in South Africa, and indeed most countries, that we live in fear - to a point of having to protect ourselves to such a level. Also, you should probably consider that the poor bloke might feel more vulnerable to intrusion given that he is probably sitting on mounds of valuable medals and doesn't sleep with his prosthetics on.

All bets are now open as to whether or not he will face actual jail time, considering his high profile hero status in good ol' Saffricker. I'll wager he escapes incarceration. Although there was JubJub, but that was far more clear cut.

The other point to consider is the very real tragedy that has befallen the poor girl's family and friends, no doubt some of Oscar's people included. Take a minute to think of them today.

And on to the rest of the news...

If you haven't heard, today is Valentine's Day. A day reserved for amorous, cloying declarations of affection, spoiling your better half because you still can't believe they let you touch their private parts, or telling your BooBooKittyFuck how much you adore them. Personally I fucking love it! I have often said, and will continue saying it. I love being in love. There can be no better sensation. Well, there IS Steak'n'Blowjob Day, but let's not sully this Hallmark moment. And as with the very important day mentioned in the previous sentence, EVERY day should be like Valentine's Day. If you are fortunate enough to be in a relationship with someone you actually like, and get along with, then it should be celebrated! All the time! Especially the part about being allowed to touch the other persons naughty bits...

As has so demonstratively become apparent today, it could all be over in an instant. So enjoy every moment. Cherish your partner. Like the Dutch Reformed Church informs us at every wedding. "Die man moet luister en die vrou moet onderdaanig wees", which translates into "The man must listen and the woman must be subservient".

In the 21st century, this translates into "Care for each other and be grateful she isn't a psycho hose beast"...

And on that note, I bid you all a fantastic luuuurvefest. For those of you without a significant other, take a minute to enjoy the peace.

Oh yes, and United held Real to a draw at the Bernabau last night! Advantage us! Glory! Glory!

NGDG: I just had a one hour conversation about Parkinson's disease and catering. While in my swim trunks. Thank heavens for the error of parallax.

Spread The Love. Not The Ammo.
