I was talking to my sister the other day, the one that resembles a kichel. She was asking me what the difference is between all the phones that are on the market.

TheNacK is back

Posted by thenack in malema , gautoll , food , Egypt , africa



I know it's half past February and I haven't posted a blog yet...but it seems I am already three months behind at work. So here are a few comments on some things that have been happening.

Egypt and the Pyramids:

It is quite clear that the people living in Egypt today are NOT the descendants of the amazing folk who built the pyramids. While it is an amazing country, it is mostly because of what people did there thousands of years ago, and in spite of the modern day residents. So I got a thinking why this may seems that every time there was a regime change, the ruling dynasty was killed off,  Every 100 years or so the smartest and strongest people were removed from the gene pool. This process of stupification has gone on for more than 3000 years resulting in the genius that is the modern Gyppo. See picture for clarification.

Which made me think of this....

But that's another story.
Something else that is worth mentioning is the awesome new toll fees we will be paying in Gauteng. And with "we" I mean the people who are already subsidising electricity, water and schools for the not working masses, and the working but uneducated masses. It seems the worst downside of apartheid turned out to be the fact that members of parlamaint never heard the fairy tale of slaugtering the swan who lays golden eggs.

Lets hope the Rugby and Cricket world cups keep us bussy enough to ignore all the other crap, lest we go mad.

Healthy Rich Going To Be Punished!

Posted by OS GIKEN in virus , University , Tswane , Sicko , Scrubs , Rich , poverty , poor , Healthcare , Gray's Anatomy , free , Doctor , Canada , ANC , africa


The National Health Scheme...where everyone in this country, illegal immigrant or not, will be able to go to a doctor and demand service for his/her teeth, for his/her broken leg, for his/her cock eye for his/her lower back pain. This sounds wonderful, but do yourself a huge favor and go watch the movie "Sicko"...

Sicko - Micheal Moore

This movie or doccie documents people's lives in different countries and the type of health care they are provided with...sometimes for free. The best to date has to be Canada, where people get rebates for not using their allocated funds for medical purposes. Obviously, Canada chose to fund this scheme through huge taxation on working class people. But then again, Canada is not in Africa, and thus we cannot compare Canada to South Africa.

South Africa, eSickoh:
Now our clever politicians who believe they can do everything under the sun has come up with a way to deliver the under-carpet promise made in's their proposition in simple terms...not even Layman would argue this:

"Everyone, poor and rich, gets free healthcare, we don't stipulate what "healthcare" entails, and we don't stipulate what will happen to people already on private healthcare schemes, for all we care they can stay where they are, but as long as poowah(poor) people get the care they need, we are happy. We will pay for this by demanding...yes, demanding the rich pay for this simply because they are...erm, rich"

Now, if like me you have been an avid political follower, by this I mean can't wait until someone in the ANC opens their mouth, then you'll notice that when things are directed towards people the tone of the ANC gets more aggressive, more hateful, more racist dare I say. That guy that can't talk properly, was all over the radio yesterday quoted as saying something along the lines of, "some would think we should charge this free healthcare onto the taxable amount of working peepol...but we are not, by doing this you are taxing the poowah, the rich must pay for this free healthcare".

Free Healthcare

Live rich, die poowah:
So if you read between the lines, you'll notice what I had noticed...These guys don't know what they are doing. They think that for once that they have given something 10 mins of thought; it should come to pass immediately! But I guess its no secret, ANC and thinking are like Mars and a button on the remote control, no relation whatsoever! Obama was given flack for his stance on this same topic. Now, the ANC, in their infinite wisdom, decides that the rich people, for just being silly rich, you know, just because, must foot the bill if the poowah people can't foot the bill for a broken foot. The rich get away with allot of things in life, but that in my opinion is how the cookie crumbles and how it should crumble. It’s been crumbling like this since the beginning of time! How does one decide who is rich and who are poowah? I know a couple of very wealthy people who like to plead their 809th amendment to declare poverty! And how will the rich foot the bill? Will they be taxed? Or will they be assigned a squatter camp location, and that certain location now belongs to them to look after, medically!


Spit in the face:
This to me seems like a spit in the face of rich people the country over. There are tons of rich people who do way more than the government with regards to giving, not just receiving. How many rich people give to the poowah, how many rich people have charities in their name, just for some government official to come and steal the money? This is against the way of the rich. Don't force them to pay for the poowah, and they won't feel the need to not give...they only give because they are not forced. There is one thing you need to understand about the rich...their money is their money. Not God's money,  or the kids', or the wives' or the company's...its theirs, all theirs! Paying for the wellbeing of the poowah, well, let's just say its not in their budget!

Free Healthcare - free for whom?
If something is free, it’s free for all, except the one giving it out for free. Teach this to all kids now...something that's free has cost someone else something! A free lunch has cost the restaurant resources and time...a free blowjob has cost some girl her childhood and many other things, a free Cellphone has cost all the millions of other Cellphone users incy winsy sums of money that they don't even know they were giving! How can healthcare be free, when the rich are paying? They should say, free healthcare for those who cannot afford. I know teachers cannot afford healthcare, they can't even afford houses. Because they earn too much for government houses, and they earn too little for private houses financed through a bank. would they determine who would qualify for free healthcare? There are so many spin-off's from this scheme should it come to's a couple:

The rich will get richer - I don't know how they just always do.

Black Power Information Act

Posted by thenack in thenack , south africa , politics , newspaper , information , freedom , ANC , africa


In the light of the communist like Nazi laws the ANC are trying to impose on our media, I believe we need a different approach. What can you as a normal blogger do?

What I suggest is using places like Afrigator to get the support of other African bloggers. There are some pretty good blogs in places like Nigeria and Zambia. I think if all of us go and visit some African blogs, get them to come to ours and read about this rediculous law. The ANC won't listen to those white tendencies coming from the USA and Europe. We need black power on this one. Viva freedom of speech! (but lets try and keep it smart, tidy and inteligent, get the african intelectual involved in this)

Joke Friday

Posted by thenack in thenack , sex , joke , flying , africa


I find this joke truly funny and the fact that is so South African makes it even funnier to me (it is a very old joke but I am sure not many of you have heard it)
Anyone who once was a teenage boy or who remember the more conservative days of the old South Africa will probably enjoy this. (This joke should actually be told because it kind of needs a bad Afrikaans accent to work, but use your imagination)

Now back in the day when condoms first "came out", here in South Africa it was a very sensiteve topic. You wouldn't see them in the store like you do know. For all practical puposes it would be like having a rabit vibrator next to the toothpaste. Frowned upon. Now this one young afrikaans boy heard rumours. Kondoom, ongelooflik. Jy hoef niks te worry nie. All his friends were telling him about this magical device. Now one day he decided it was time to find out for himself. If sex could be less dangerous than he was taught by his parents, he had to find out.
Now if you don't speaks too many english, kondoom could very easily be translated to "kandoom". Sounds about right. So off he went to the indian general dealer (the spar didn't have kandooms). The thing is , you had to ask, they kept them in the back. So of he went and asked the gentleman, " Can I have one kandoom please". The shopkeeper obviously heard "can doom" and asked him if he needed it for crawling in~sekts or flying in~sekts, to which the boy promptly replied, " NO!! just normal sekts please"
