A Glorious Quote

June 7th, 2014 14 Comments

Just for fun, I post this marvelous quote by Auberon Waugh (eldest son of Evelyn, nephew of Alec) sent to Steve Bodio by another wonderful writer, Tom McIntyre:

“There are countless horrible things happening all over the country, and horrible people prospering, but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible.”

    Speaking of horrible things I am sure you heard about this. Just when I thought that the Obama administration could not stoop any lower they did. This is either incompetence or President Obama just does not care any more. I doubt there is anything I could do to annoy or sabotage the governments decision making process.

    On dit que la moitié du monde est faite pour ennuyer l’autre moitié. J’ai choisi mon camp.
    Il y a un proverbe qui dit : « qui se ressemble, s’assemble ». Pour cette raison, mes amis et les gens qui m’entourent sont en majorité sympathiques et respectueux d’autrui.
    Et c’est peut-être aussi pour cette raison que j’apprécie beaucoup votre blog !!!!!
    Cela contribue beaucoup à rendre heureux et serein.

    This is the transcript of the ACTUAL radio conversation between the British and the Irish, off the coast of Kerry, Oct 98. Radio conversation released by the Chief of Naval Operations 10-10-01:

    IRISH: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South, to avoid a collision.

    BRITISH: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the North, to avoid a collision.

    IRISH: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

    BRITISH: This is the Captain of a British navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.

    IRISH: Negative. I say again. You will have to divert YOUR course.

    BRITISH: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER HMS BRITANNIA THE SECOND LARGEST SHIP IN THE BRITISH ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS, AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. I DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH, I SAY AGAIN, THAT IS 15 DEGREES NORTH, OR COUNTER-MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.

    IRISH: We are a lighthouse. Your call.

    Hello JP,

    you surely find yourself in that, beyond question. Go on like that!
    I guess all readers of this blog do support this.
    And if that above is your aim you’re doing a pretty good job ;) .

    Best wishes
