Love the expression on Pluto's face.
 
Pluto ... why was it named so?


Once seen, can not be unseen

Ah DHMO, yet again.

Which is more toxic, the publicity or the product itself?

Nobody needs to be unemployed in this country.

You can always get a job sitting outside Burger King asking for spare change.

Love the punch line. I'm approachng the end of a marathon read from cartoon #1 (2006?), and this is one of the best.

Stand-up #7 will be for me tonight at Snatch Comedy - Ponsonby Road . I'm due up 3rd (MC,  Another comedian then  Me) so around 9 ish?

Tonight's set will be based on some ideas I was throwing around and material I developed before coming back onto the scene a month or so back. It's more like my earlier stuff. I'm still looking for my comedic voice and I think those styles are more "Me" than what I've been doing earlier this year.

Looking forward to trying it out.

Blog posting that's mainly naive reportage on some recent events. Maybe one day I'll come back to it.

Pluto mission cost $0.20 / kilometre. That's cheaper than a 305 bus from town to my place.

A portrait from the final approach. Pluto and Charon display striking color and brightness contrast in this composite image from July 11, showing high-resolution black-and-white LORRI images.

I don't usually comment too much on foreign criminal cases, but this seems so similar to our own country's recent experience ...

Drug abusing oxygen thief son kills a family member. The press tries to excuse him because he's a "victim" of his own drug use.

Spark Phone Scam

The Indian accented "Microsoft" phone scammers are back, only now claiming to be from Spark/Telecom.

The guy had all the answers until I asked him to quote my Spark account # & he immediately hung up.

Introduction
35 Years in software development, currently developing C++ 9-5 and PHP 7-10.

If you're following me because you find my shares and reshares interesting, then welcome aboard. If you've followed me in the hope I'll follow you back, I'll be looking at your profile before adding you. If you don't have any postings showing that interest me then sorry I'll just move along.

If you're wondering why I've got you in a Google+ circle, I add people on the following criteria
  1. If I know you in real life, through Twitter or through a mailing list I've added you in. 
  2. I think of this as more "ideas media" than social media. If I found your profile because someone shared a posting of yours or you commented on someone else's posting and I liked what you were saying when I checked your profile I added you. This doesn't mean I agree with you, just I found it interesting.
  3. Sometimes I read a shared posting and when I went to your profile I found you only share with your own circles. I've added you on the basis that I hope the rest of what you say is worth reading.
  4. I like pictures and jokes. If you've ever shared something I really liked I may have added you to my Pictures or Jokes circles.
  5. If you're a New Zealander, or live(d) in New Zealand (or have recorded you changed planes at Auckland).
  6. I tend to add people to my circles who add me to theirs and have interesting shares. 
  7. When I joined I uploaded my email address list so it's possible we had a one-off communication a few years back.
  8. Initially I added to my circles all the profiles that Google+'s Find People tab suggested. This eventually got too big and defocussed so I removed all the ones that hadn't followed me back after a few days.
  9. Sometimes I find myself on a profile with a relatively large large number of people in common and take a guess that you will be saying something I want to read.

I also have a seperate profile I use for sharing pictures I like. If you suspect you might have similar tastes to me in the graphic arts it's at Bruce I Clement
