Meanwhile in Germany: They are on Fire!
June 15th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

Some nations are stranger than others, and you often expect some of them to just be dull. Meanwhile in Germany they are delivering on their expected weirdness.

Can you remember the last time you were sitting on a couch with your friends and your uhm… your “lap” was on fire? Me neither.

This is however one of those occasions where I would be 100% happy to be a bit on the dull side. It might sound like a great idea when you have had a few drinks for that once in a lifetime photo, but the results for the next few days or weeks can hurt…

Meanwhile in America: Exercising
June 10th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

Meanwhile in America they have realized that they need to start looking after themselves a little better. With loads of people on mobility scooters because their legs can’t support them anymore, there are some who are taking the next step to turn their lives around.

Given that first step is not a quick one… or one where you are standing up… or one where you break a sweat… you are basically just dangling your feet. Go America!

Meanwhile in Japan they have dispatched a new brand of Ghostbuster. They aren’t really armed that well, they just aim to confuse the crap out of the ghosts.

You can really see that Yuto and Yuki take their roles very serious in defending Japanese suburbs from the supernatural threats they face.

The Japanese have a huge lead on the weird stuff in this world. So just imagine how weird their ghosts are!?!?!

Meanwhile in Spain: don't be a stuck up
June 2nd, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

It is Tuesday. We have survived past Monday and we can relax a little now. So don’t be a stuck up! Meanwhile in Spain the poor people can’t help but be stuck up sometimes, but I am guessing that is not what they had planned for the day.

Anyone fighting bulls in this way deserves what is coming to them. Mr Spanish-man: enjoy sitting down in future!

It is the greatest nation in the world. Meanwhile in America they are working on ensuring that the food industry keeps going. They are not selfish in their actions either. They don’t worry about pesky things like heart attacks or clogged arteries, as long as they can support the economy. U! S! A!

Meanwhile in Hungary they have decided to encourage the public to really get stuck in and enjoy their hobbies. They even have a shelf for it at the stores.

I know of a couple of people here in South Africa who also enjoy the exact same hobbies…

Meanwhile in America this gentleman though he would try and look a little prettier for his trip to the local fast food place. But then he got tired. So very very tired.

It is difficult trying to look good and going out when your outfits all shrunk in the wash! I think he might have had a little lie-down because there was no blood-flow through his body anymore from the tight little number he is wearing.

The other customers are however not worried. This is the kind of thing that they are used to seeing. You’ve seen one big man in a pink tight fitting outfit lying on the floor, you’ve seen them all.

Negotiation is such a tedious and boring way of settling disputes. It also doesn’t offer any spectator value at all. Meanwhile in Bolivia they have decided to sort things out in everyone’s interest.

People don’t hold grudges as they just get in a ring and pummel each other until the matter is resolved. This also makes it a lot more entertaining for friends and family.

I do like the attention they give to detail. Bolivia is a country where traditions are still important and that is why it is nice to see that they don’t let traditional dress hold them back.

Wouldn’t the world be a more fun and entertaining place if we find more creative ways of sorting out our problems? We all have beautiful minds filled with interesting ideas, so crack on and let the ideas flow!

Meanwhile in Australia 1
May 20th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

One of the few things the Australians got right apart from AC/DC and their version of Masterchef, is the way they do their shopping. While we are struggling here in South Africa with plastic bags we need to pay for, this clever Aussie lady (it hurts to say that) found a 2-in-1 solution.

She took her pet kangaroo to the shops and this meant that she had a shopping basket to boot.

Meanwhile in Australia this is probably not the strangest thing going on… we will need to revisit them a few times over the next couple of weeks to see what they are up to.

Meanwhile in Lithuania 1
May 20th, 2015 by Thys Du Plooy

This is a confusing one as the location is debatable. Well meanwhile in Lithuania they are having problems with their wheels… or is it Brakpan.

Meanwhile in Lithuania 1

There are however clues that it isn’t Brakpan. Let me enlighten you:
1. The colours of the panels on the car still match up
2. The car next to it has a spare wheel that could have been taken a lot quicker
3. Nobody spray-painted any references to a woman’s anatomy on the car

So even though the untrained eye might think it could be Brakpan, this isn’t and could very well be in Lithuania.

That’s your lesson for the day.
