Light Blogging.

Woe is me!

I am having to do the worky thing. At work!

Normally I work from home but my CEO is over from Houston and he demands my presence.

Talk amongst yourselves for a bit.

Not about me, obviously. Pick on someone else.

Normal service will resume shortly.

Joke time.

One man calls emergency:
- Come immediately, my little son has swallowed a condom!
After five minutes, the same man calls back:
- It is OK, I found another one.

So when are you going to say something about light?

c = 299792458 m/sec or something like that would be a start.

Captain, Is that a CEO of an English company based in Houston or an American company?

Either way I hope it is not "Big Oil", my goodness if it is your a wanted man!

Back to my question; If an American company, were you not 'biting the hand' so to speak a couple of post's ago?

Just askin',,,,,,,,,,

What a bummery thing!

Captain Ranty said...


My CEO is an American. The company is head-quartered in Houston.

It is not Big Oil. It is Big Telecom. We provide services (purely) to the Oil & Gas Industry.

I can't think of many "benign" industries, but what do you mean about biting the hand that feeds?

Another word for employer is "user". They use me, and my skills, to improve profits. I sell them my skills. It is a two way street. It wouldn't matter where the company was based though.

I do not malign individual Americans. They (you) have been hoodwinked by a system that was hundreds of years in the making. It is the system I am upset with. Not working stiffs like you and I.

Incidentally, I informed my CEO that a portion of his taxes found its way back here to Queenie. He was not pleased. He will now examine his tax return more closely!

Just had my second visit in two weeks from the Census collector drone.

That's quite a bit for a small village. Wonder how many times I'm going to have to pretend that I',m not in.

Captain Ranty said...


That's just not on.

My village has 280 people. Not a single visit have I had.

I am looking forward to it as well.

Deeply disappointed.

They probably think your gaff is uninhabited, what with all the time you spend out of the country m8. You couls always write to them and say how miffed you are at their obtuse refusal to come and pick on someone their own size. ;-P

I think the census drones need the awkward squad; in the same way that plod and lawyers need scrotes to keep their revolving doors spinning merrily; and “community leaders” need uneducated, dependant clients; and the labour party need the feckless.
Try getting the desperate drone to thank you for causing his paid contract to be extended.
