Internet What The Flip – Sophia Grace

Posted by on Jun 4, 2013 in Music | 0 comments

No, no, no! Internet what have you done!? I don’t know if you saw the video from a while back about Sophia Grace, the now teeny who thinks she is a superstar rapper/singer, where she performed Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” at home in front of the camera. She made it big and got on Ellen and had a message from Nicki etc, etc.

Now someone has told this child that she is a superstar. Ag sies man. Who is going to tell this child that they probably aren’t going to grow up into the next big thing. Nevermind the fact that she will probably be bullied at school like Rebecca Black because of this.

Sigh, internet, what have you done.

What Would You Do With R100 000?

Posted by on May 15, 2013 in Financial | 2 comments

This is a hypothetical situation but I was asked this question a few weeks ago and it is one that has provided very interesting answers when asked to others.

R100-notes-R100-000

So let me set the scene:

Age does not matter; answer it from your perspective – 21 or 65.

I want YOUR answer, and preferably your age to add some perspective. Do you clear out bad credit card debt you have had, or do you put that money into the stock market, or do you spend it on coke and hookers?

I want your thoughts. I will provide my answer in a follow up post.

AND GO!

Being a Manchester United fan for the past 15 years has meant always watching one man managing the team. He has been an ever-present and consistently brought success and further hunger to our great club.

Yesterday marked his final home game at Old Trafford, and I think watching the scenes struck a special chord with me after visiting there in August to watch the first home game of the season. Now that I think about it, I watched the start of the end.

Here are his last words in front of those that adore him so much.

I shed a tear watching that yesterday. Emotional stuff.

This sums things up perfectly:

Sir Alex Ferguson. 26 years. 1,499 games. 872 wins. 330 draws. 260 defeats. 38 trophies. 1 piece of chewing gum. *tears*

Thank You Sir Alex.

In David Moyes we trust.
