Credit Crash...Again !

Credit Crash is back in the news again, and more doom and gloom.

Hilariously, after weeks of speculation then planning for Richard Branson to take control of Northern Rock, they've all just realised that neither he nor Virgin has a bankers licence and so must wait months for his application to be processed. HA !!! So it isn't just mere mortals that get tied up with this country's mad bureaucracy.

But who cares anyway ? Well not the Lifesshort organisation http://www.lifesshort.co.uk/ . We say spend your money don't save it, so all concerns are purely peripheral to our outlook on life.

We're bombarded by media speculation and the eternal downside of life. Remember the Millenium Computor Crash Y2K Bug - millions were spent on protecting their systems, and nothing happened even to those who spent zero.

Will there be a UK Autumn election ? Bluster, news...then, NO. England win a couple of games then crash pathetically. Bad news bad news bad news.

Lifesshort, I'm so busy doing what I want that I couldn't care less for playground politics, yah boo politicians or deceitful people who promise nirvana and deliver...well not purgatory, but far less than nirvana !

Lifesshort. It's not dropping out but it is tuning in. It isn't subversion or anarchy, but it is healthy disregard of our force-fed establishment indigestion. Lifesshort, do it now. Credit crunch ? Naaaargh :)

Surfers Ignore Warnings - Life's Short

Surfer Alistair Mennie rides a giant breaker off the west coast of Ireland last Saturday, on a day of dangerously high swells and shattered records.

Duncon Scott, Mennie, Gabe Davies and Ritchie Fitzgerald rode record-breaking 60 ft waves off Mullaghmore Head in Donegal Bay, despite warnings by Irelands Marine Institute and Metro Eirean for people to stay away.

The surfers used jet skis to provide them with the initial momentum to slingshot them onto the giant, unbroken swells. Waves of such magnitude and power move too fast to be caught by traditional human paddling power alone.

These blokes saw a window of opportunity for their 'it', ignored the 'The Man' who said don't do it, and lived a dream. They may never have a better day of surfing, it'll be in their memories for the rest of their lives - they went for it.
