Education is important afterall.
Yes well spotted, I can’t ber arsed writting anything. I have armour to finish and two educational programs to write all with only one functional arm so suck it up.
Coming in at number 3: The post that just wont dieand freeloader favorite – Free Ballista Plans! – Revisited. At least we seem to have stopped getting comments from morally outraged 12 year olds who seem to be working on the delusion that the world in general and I in particular owe them a living and more to the point free plans.
Speaking of plans the plans for the table top managanol & ballista are now available for $5 each. The kitsets are discontinued until futher notice because a. they don’t make enough for the work and b, I’m having some real trouble in getting them to arrive at the moment. When you’re up to attempt three and you’re making a blistering $12 off the deal you start to get grumpy.
Our silver medal this month goes to shiny things! Let there be… pewter! with twice as many hits as the number 3 slot. Celebrate comericalism. For those that have ordered things they have been dispatched so stand by your mail box! For four to ten working days… take a sandwich, you’ll be right.
And the number one position is taken out by… Gay test. Which itself has twice as many hits as the number two slot. Frankly I don’t think the post is what most people going there think it is and to be entirely truthful if have doubts about being gay to the point where you’re taking online tests, you’re probably not. But my goodness doesn’t there seem to be a lot of you. Real blokes watch Jane Austen too guys, deal with it.

URGENT ACTION – Stop UK deporting Iranian to her death!
Posted by Brett
The media has been full of debate and discussion about the deportation of a convicted killer to Italy. I don’t want to get into that debate, except to note that the consequences for Learco Chindamo of deportation to Italy would be relatively inconsequential when compared to the probable fate of Pegah Emambakhsh, an Iranian lesbian, about whom there hasn’t been a single column inch in the mainstream media.
Pegah Emambakhsh is an Iranian national who sought asylum in the UK in 2005. Her claim was rejected and she was arrested in Sheffield on Monday 13th August 2007. She is scheduled for deportation to Iran on 27 August 2007.
If returned to Iran, she faces certain imprisonment, likely severe lashings and possibly even stoning to death. Her crime in Iran is her sexual orientation – she was in a same-sex relationship.
Ms Emambakhsh escaped from Iran, claiming asylum, after her lover was arrested, tortured and subsequently sentenced to death by stoning. Her father was also arrested and interrogated about her whereabouts. He was eventually released but not before he had been tortured himself.
Ms Emambakhsh has a more than well founded fear of persecution if she is returned to Iran. She belongs to a group of people – gays and lesbians – who, it is well known, are severely persecuted in Iran.
According to Iranian human rights campaigners, many lesbians and gay men have been executed since the Ayatollahs came to power in 1979.
In 2006 a German court ruled that an Iranian lesbian could not be deported as she risked death because of her sexuality.
The UK Border and Immigration Agency (BIA) have chosen not to believe that she is in danger if returned to Iran, even though the UK government are well aware of the dangerous situation that gay people face there.
The BIA will be committing a serious miscarriage of justice and a gross human rights violation if they insist on Ms Emambakhsh’s deportation.
The Asylum Seeker Support Initiative in Sheffield are now getting Pegah new solicitors in order to make a fresh claim for asylum based on new evidence and expert testimonies. A stay of deportation is needed to give Pegah time to prepare and submit this fresh claim.
Pegah’s MP, Richard Caborn, has already won one stay of deportation and is working secure another postponement of deportation on 27 August.
You can help. Please write or email asap the British Home Secretary Jacqui Smith and to Pegah’s British constituency MP, Richard Caborn (see details below).
Pegah Emambakhsh’s Home Office reference number is: B1191057. This number must be quoted in any letter, so the Home Office can identify
and access her case.
Letters need to be sent TODAY by first class post to arrive tomorrow, Friday 24 August, at the latest. If you can’t send a letter, a fax is a good alternative, and an email is certainly better than nothing. Mark all correspondence “For the persona attention of…”

Please don’t let Pegah be quietly deported to face torture or death. Our letters can make all the difference.
In related news, the Daily Mail has a story, with photos, of the public flogging of 25-year-old Saeed Ghanbari, convicted under Iran’s ‘morality laws’ of drinking alcohol and having sex outside of marriage.
And this one is more true now than it was when I first put up not quite a year ago. And what the ocasion then? Oh right Mallard was threatening to “reveal personal secrets” about oposition members as Labour dove for the gutter. Get a new playbook dickheads.
Check out the comments in the Herald after another grubby bit of gutter politics from the left… from their master “strategist”. More like bater judging from the reaction.
Its like kiwis have pretty much had enough at last. Wonder if any of them will give me a hand with my school project.
Ok how long will a throwing arm need to be, how heavy a counterweight to throw a 300lb rock to a height of say… off the top of my head 9 floors?
Rock through the window officer? Could have been anyone.
In an unrelated matter does anyone have a really big truck that could be used for an inconspicious getaway?
Its for a… school project.
