Everything Will Be Okay In The End

...If it's not okay, it's not the end.

"Everything will be okay in the end.  If it's not okay, it's not the end."
iPhone 6 wallpaper (1334x750)
Anyone who has read my alien comedy 'How To Save The World' books may remember that at one stage in the opening book, the main character, Eric, was feeling downhearted with his lack of success in his quest to save the world.  However, Eric then took inspiration from a quote on one of his t-shirts and that quote was:

"Everything will be okay in the end.  If it's not okay, it's not the end."

In actual fact one of my own old t-shirts also features the very same quote, and it's a quote that I really like, so as last week saw the release of the latest iPhone 6 from Apple, I therefore thought it would be topical to turn the quote into an iPhone wallpaper.

Duck And Cover!

A look at the past in honour of World Peace Day.

Today is officially World Peace Day (or International Day Of Peace as it's also known) and sometimes the best way to ensure peace is to look at the mistakes of history and remind ourselves of the horrors of war.

So with that in mind, here's a short comic from the 1950s which was produced by the US government to warn citizens how to react if an atomic bomb goes off in their vicinity...

Ten Quotes About Aliens And Ufos

Are we alone in the universe?

The Earth's moon, coincidentally also named 'The Moon'.
Just one of billions of moons and planets throughout the universe.
As regular readers of the Charles Fudgemuffin blog will know, my comedy 'How To Save The World' books feature aliens from the fictional planets Fem and Fyra.

The books are very light-hearted and entirely fictional, but when you consider that the observable universe contains an estimated 100 to 200 billion galaxies, each with an average 100 billion stars, you have to suspect that's there's at least a chance that we're not alone in the universe.

I personally find books and documentaries on space and the universe really fascinating, so it's interesting to read what famous people have said about aliens and UFOs...

1) NASA astronaut, Gordon Cooper:

"While working with a camera crew supervising flight testing of advanced aircraft at Edward's Air Force Base, California, the camera crew filmed the landing of a strange disc object that flew in over their heads and landed on a dry lake nearby.  A camera crewman approached the saucer, it rose up above the area and flew off at a speed faster than any known aircraft."

2) Will Smith:

"I think it would be arrogant and borderline foolish to believe there's no other life forms that exist out there."

Weird Facebook Likes (Part 4)

Physical, financial and culinary bad news...

A topic I've covered before on the Charles Fudgemuffin blog is the bizarre practise of someone posting bad news on facebook, only for all their so-called friends to click the 'like' button!  It's been a few months since my last post on this subject, so here's another batch of weird and inappropriate facebook likes which I've come across.

"I've just slashed my finger with a meat cleaver."
1 friend likes this.
1) "Searching around my kitchen draw for some sellotape and......yes a verrrrry sharp meat that smarts!!!!!"
1 friend likes this.

Maybe it's just me, but I can't quite grasp why your friend nearly slicing his finger off would be something you would like?!?

This next one is an example of financial misfortune, rather than physical misfortune...

2) "Can't believe I've walked away from the cash machine and left my £100!  What an idiot!!!"
4 friends like this.

So to recap, in all probability you've just lost £100 at an ATM because of a foolish error, and four of your alleged friends like this!!??  If I had just lost £100 and four friends 'liked' it, I think I would be making use of the 'unfriend' button very quickly indeed!
