Africa Day – I am an African – Mbeki Speech

Posted by on May 25, 2011 in My life, Politics | 1 comment

With it being Africa Day, I thought that I would post the most iconic speech related to being an African.

I found it here.

Chairperson,
Esteemed President of the democratic Republic,
Honourable Members of the Constitutional Assembly,
Our distinguished domestic and foreign guests,
Friends,

On an occasion such as this, we should, perhaps, start from the beginning.

So, let me begin.

I am an African.

I owe my being to the hills and the valleys, the mountains and the glades, the rivers, the deserts, the trees, the flowers, the seas and the ever-changing seasons that define the face of our native land.

My body has frozen in our frosts and in our latter day snows. It has thawed in the warmth of our sunshine and melted in the heat of the midday sun. The crack and the rumble of the summer thunders, lashed by startling lightening, have been a cause both of trembling and of hope.

The fragrances of nature have been as pleasant to us as the sight of the wild blooms of the citizens of the veld.

The dramatic shapes of the Drakensberg, the soil-coloured waters of the Lekoa, iGqili noThukela, and the sands of the Kgalagadi, have all been panels of the set on the natural stage on which we act out the foolish deeds of the theatre of our day.

At times, and in fear, I have wondered whether I should concede equal citizenship of our country to the leopard and the lion, the elephant and the springbok, the hyena, the black mamba and the pestilential mosquito.

A human presence among all these, a feature on the face of our native land thus defined, I know that none dare challenge me when I say – I am an African!

Captain Awesome Redesign – What do YOU think?

Posted by on Apr 8, 2011 in Cape Town, My life | 0 comments

How are awesome people continuously awesome many people ask me. Ok, actually they don’t but that is because I can imagine they are actually just too intimidated to ask me an actual question. Yea I would be intimidated too but hey, it’s not easy being this awesome.

But the way that we do it is by continuously pushing the boundaries of awesome. So, I decided a few days ago that the site needed a redesign. I like to keep things fresh and obviously awesome so a brand spanking new look and feel for all you wonderful people to marvel at is here for your eyes to ogel and have visual eye sex with. No that probably didn’t make sense, but you know what I mean.

Captain Awesome Old Captain Awesome New

So there is a before and after shot. Obviously I am still tweaking it to try and get as much awesomesauce out of it as possible.

I want to know what YOU think! Leave me some comments below and you never know, your suggestion for a bright coloured unicorn could come to life.

Visualizing Alcohol Use
Source: phlebotomist.net

So we all know that when it comes to Thursday, that secretly the weekend begins. Life would not be the same without Phuza Thursday, and it just makes that week a bit more barable for those poor chops that are stuck in a crappy job like accounting. Shame.

If I was stuck in an uber kak job I would also turn to my good friend called Wellington. Yea, I am sure you have meet some of my other good friends like Carling, and Jose. Yea….you are good friends with them aren’t you? Naughty!

So I know all you statistical people out there like your numbers, but for those of you out there that prefer pretty colours and graphs and stuff here is an infographic for something that everyone loves: BOOZE!

Don’t forget its St Paddy’s day today! Time to get Slizzard!
