For R5 you can get rid of your road rage. Now that sounds like a bargin. I saw this smashed up taxi in the middle of a soccer field in a built up area. That is a little strange.

The field was behind a sturdy fence, so it could not have just been left there. The writing reads:

3 shots for R5
Come and get rid of your road rage

I assume that the enterprising owner was allowing you to take three shots at his smashed up taxi (with a gun?) for R5. The field is just behind the Sanbel Building in Belville. Can you shed any light on it?

Update (16 May 2011), today I drive past and they are gone. The plot thickens…

Here is something interesting that I came across the other day. Oxford Poetry, which was published1915, contains an early poem by JRR Tolkien, and it certainly one of his first published works. Amazing that the book is almost 100 years old.

A flyer that I found in my postbox. This doctor is offering some remarkable services. He must be highly skilled, and all those services for only R50 (about $6).


I have just finished learning a piece of music by one of my favourite composers, John Cage. The piece is called “4’33 silence”. I did find it a bit difficult to learn, so I have taken the liberty of editing it to just 33 seconds.

More details about John Cage can be found here.



This is the poster for a show that was on when we were in Las Vegas last year. Zumanity is one of the Cirque de Soleil productions. According to the official website, it is

“a seductive twist on reality…leave all inhibitions at the door and let loose as this adult-themed production takes you on a sexy thrill ride…part burlesque and part cabaret”

Sound familiar?

It was on at the New York New York hotel. I never got to see it, but it looks really interesting!

So, do you live in Reality, or Zumanity?

I have noticed this picture referenced on a “White News” website. I would like to make it very clear, that my post was not meant to be a reference to “racial submission of whites to non-whites”, or any such thing. I neither support nor endorse such websites.  I find both pro-white and pro-black websites very disturbing.

I find it sad that for so many people race is still such a large factor in their thinking. I believe that people should

not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character – Martin Luther King
