The number one reason that the Sci Fi Channel can’t cancel Stargate SG1

We might need them in 2036…according to New Scientist magazine Apophis, a nasty alien that SG1 killed, has come back to life (I hate it when aliens manage that) as an asteroid, and is headed straight for earth…well there’s a 1 in 45,000 chance of him hitting earth and wiping out half the planet.

Thankfully SG1 have experience in diverting asteroids, so this should be pretty easy for them. On the off chance that they get it wrong, or they’re not around to help, “experts” want the UN to come up with a “protocol”…well, that should be more than enough make Apophis shake in his boots, turn around, and head back from whence he came.

If we let the UN make a multi-nation protocol of action, we’ll be buried in paperwork until the next time Apophis destroys a planet…that’s assuming that anybody bothers to listen to the UN in the first place…don’t we just throw money at them so that they’ll make bits of paper and be quiet in their corner while we pretend to be interested in the needs of every other nation?

Just in case you’re wondering, yes, the people who named this asteroid are Stargate SG1 fans…apparently.

Complete The Story

In an email selling “Viawagra” and “Valwum”, a nice friendly spammer sent me a confused story about gambling.

Boys, said Mr. Weasley under his breath, I dont want you betting…
Thats all your savings … Your mother
Dont be a spoilsport, Arthur! boomed Ludo Bagman, rattling his

Rattling his what? and did the boys end up gambling away their life savings to the delight of Arthur and the dismay of Mr. Weasley and mother? Would anybody like to complete the story?

Happy 65th Birthday John Kerr

It’s John Kerr’s 65th birthday, in many ways this is a tough birthday as once you’re 65 you can’t really break out your favourite song of the last 365 days, “When I’m 64” by The Beatles, and you have reached the government sanctioned age of retirement. Thankfully though I can’t see John retiring just yet…he has been mentioning it every now and then for the last few years, and who knows, he may decide to retire at the end of the year…but I think it was radio historian Wayne Mac who said to me that people like John have radio in their blood…so if John Laws is still going at 71, and Bob Rogers is still going at 80, we may have a lot more of John Kerr to look forward to yet!

Happy 65th birthday John, I’m glad you’ve got the day off, and I hope it’s a great day filled with lots of happiness, joy, presents, cake and loved ones.

For the record, I, along with the other members of “The Questionable Trio”, Irene in Brisbane and Charity in Sydney, sent John a mystery thriller book titled “Gone” (Amazon has details) by Lisa Gardner, as well as a card with a picture of a lion on the front, with caption “You’re the mane man”. Inside the card we sent the message “Happy 65th Birthday John, best wishes for the next year, and another 65 to come!”

John got the present a few days early, and said to me on Friday that he is looking forward to reading the book.

While we’re on the subject of birthdays, it was Flash’s birthday on Tuesday last week (February 13)

Flash is the three-legged mascot of the John Stanley program on 2UE and 2CC, and lives with John’s executive producer Kate (pictured together).

From memory Flash (a Tenterfield Terrier) was the RSPCA’s “pet of the week” on the show, and Kate fell in love with him, and gave him a new home. He has been the mascot of the show ever since.

I’ve been a fan of flash for about the same amount of time, and have been wanting to get him a present for a while now, last week I did so not realising that it was his birthday. I got him some squeaky food shaped toys…apparently he really likes the hamburger!

Happy birthday Flash!
