Do you remember the Daleks from Dr. Who? Those things really frightened me, but now the Dalek family are coming back. There is no Dalek invasion or Dalek army coming to feast on us. No, the Dalek are coming to us to help us with relaxation. According to this fantastic viral, the Dalek from Dr.Who will be making a return, but this time at your local spa. The stresses and strains of daily life will float away as the Dalek relaxation tape for humans plays in the background.
The first time I head the Dalek Relaxation Tape I was on the ground in a ball with the laughter. Who ever did this is a genius, as the retro aliens come back to reduce our stress.
Have a look and enjoy – I think it’s the funniest viral video ever !

It will be interesting to see how my predictions for the Oscars (in red) pan out….
Did you know there is a Boeing 737 flight simulator in Dublin’s Terminal 2 departures?
While getting ready to board a recent Aer Lingus flight to London Heathrow when I saw the signs in the departures area. I love aircraft and I just had to try it. It is not my first time doing this, as I tried the Flight Experience Boeing 737 flight simulator (800 series) in Singapore in 2011. On that occasion I enjoyed a simulated flight from Hong Kong International to the now closed Kai Tak, one of the worlds trickiest airports to fly into.
The Dublin flight simulator is called uPilot and starts at 15 minutes for €45. Some might call it steep but for what you get it is well worth the money. There was a small pre-flight briefing but since I knew a lot of the controls and procedures before I knew it I was taxing along runway 28 at Dublin Airport. The simulated flight took a left turn over Wicklow, out over the Irish sea with a few slight left course adjustments we were heading for the Isle of Man. It was at that point I started a further left turn and descent to intercept with the localiser. Thankfully for everyone on board my simulated flight, the landing was safely made for a smooth touchdown at Dublin Airport.
Afterwards the person running the flight simulator system told me that this particular Boeing 737 flight simulator was hand built from scratch by an enthusiast. It is incredibly realistic with everything from seatbelt sign noises and engine fire simulations to FMC settings, engine failures and full auto-pilot features.
The flight simulator could easily distract you from your flight so make sure you have plenty of time before your gate closes – in matter how realistic the flight sim, it won’t get you to your destination.
I don’t know what all the hype is about with this 50 shades of grey book but I got an email with the 50 Shades of Grey book Irish Style, which is basically a parody of the 50 Shades of Gray book – pretty crude but very funny.
I don’t know where the source is for this but well done to who ever created these…
FIFTY SHADES OF GREY, IRISH STYLE……..
… “Give it to me, give it to me”, he roared aggressively. Some days Mary hated working at Ulster Bank.
He slipped his hand under the red silk.. “You’re so beautiful in that dress.” he said — “Fuck off, it was only a euro in Penneys!” she replied
Bernies knees were sore and her throat was raw …. This was the longest Novena sheíd ever attended.
“You’re so tight”, he said, I’m from Cavan she replied.
Slowly he ran his finger down the middle, parting the pink softness, feeling the moist sticky centre. He loved a Mikado.
“She Quivered as I stroked her thighs. Take me in the shower Sean!” – I whispered to her “Wait til I turn on the immersion”.
Her underwear was wet as he pulled the rope. There’s great drying out today she thought as the clothes line hoisted
‘Its so long! Never seen the likes of it!’ exclaimed Mary, as she joined the dole queue
She widened her mouth, trying to fit it all in!! The Juices ran down her face. Mary did love a kebab after coppers
Sharon was panting as she let out one final scream of pure pleasure. There was nothing like beating Kilkenny in the hurling
She took a deep breath as the shivers rolled down her hot body… Jaysus, she thought. The Vicks is kicking in now!
Come on! Pump it hard.. Real hard! But it was no use the tyre was definitely punctured!
He asked if she could handle more than one finger. She said “No, I prefer a Hob Nob or a purple Snack with me tea!!”
This is a great video of a goalkeeper who saves a penalty and starts to celebrate the penalty save. The goalkeeper saved the ball but the spin on the ball means that the ball continues to roll into the net while the keeper continues to celebrate – kissing his badge, even though the stadium is almost empty.
This too place September 10th, between Maghreb Fez and FAR Rabat in a decider for the quarter-finals of Morocco’s Coupe du Trone. The penalty shootout decide the winner and it was during this penalty shootout, FAR goalkeeper Khalid Askri thought he saved an important penalty and immediately began to celebrate his save. He turns his back on the goal, patting his chest and kissing his badge … what he didn’t notice is that the ball had some lots of spin on it and actually bounced and rolled back into the goal after his initial block. The referee nods and awards the goal and Askri’s team ended up losing the shootout 7-6.
A very funny sporting blooper which is sure to end up on some sports bloopers DVD for Christmas…
