Uninteresting Trivial Facts


Recommended Posts


I'm putting this here because it clearly is unimportant and trivial to the great and good.  I accept the judgement of my betters and relegate it accordingly:

 

Iceland jailed the 25th and 26th bankers yesterday over their involvement in the 2008 banking collapses.  So far, the total for the 26 bankers jailed is 74 years.  More prosecutions are underway.  Oh, and Iceland are in quite good financial health and don't have an "austerity" programme despite being one of the worst impacted countries in 2008.

On the topic of lesser countries having the balls to do what big countries won't, Vanuatu has jailed the deputy PM and 13 other MPs for corruption.

With the exception of the canteen ladies who served me coffee this morning, I've not spoken to a single person yet today despite being in the office for just over two hours.  Ahhh, the peace of actually being able to get on with work.  Having a 5 minute break now, normally I'd go out and talk to the minions but I'll just enjoy the silence.

I just received an Incident text for the NHS.  I only saw it partly.  I thought it said "Multiple users across multiple sites are unable to get Chlamydia".  My brain self-replied "That's alright then, I bet they're glad".  The text screen only showed the first part of the message, the rest of the message was "database by any means"

As a child, the wrestler Andre the Giant was regularly driven to school by the playwright Samuel Beckett. During the journeys, they mainly talked about cricket.

Just back from trips to Budapest and Raleigh. Bit knackered.

Back in time for the Rugby tomorrow. You haven't missed any proper sport, thankfully. B)
