    Kinders se vraestel antwoorde .......... dis nou lekker Afrikaans !! *Salomo het driehonderd vroue en nog sewehonderd bye-vye gehad. Nie almal van hulle het gesteek nie, maar hy was gelukkig baie slim en het 'n plan uitgewerk. * Nog 'n belangrike uitvindsel was die bloedsomloop. Dit het verhoed dat jou bloed stilstaan, wat stilstuipe veroorsaak. * Peter Stuyfgestaan is 'n geskiedkundige figuur, want hy het sigarette uitgevind en begin rook. Hy het so baie gerook dat die niekoetien-kolle in sy onderbroek duidelik sigbaar was. * Egipteland was bewoon deur mummies en hulle het almal op hulle hero-gleuwe geskryf en vir hulle pappies gewys. Hulle het in die Sarah-woestyn gewoon en het waterbeurte gehad van die min reën. Die klimaat was só erg dat al die inwoners op ander plekke gebly het, en net naweke huistoe gekom het om sandkastele te bou. Die boesmans het in hulle tuine gewerk. * Moses het die Hebreeuse slawe na die Rooi See gelei waar hulle ongesuurde brode gebak het, dit is brood wat sonder enige bestanddele gemaak is en baie soet is van te min suurdeeg. Moses het die berg Sianied uitgeklim om die tien gebooie te kry. * Die Egiptenare was 'n hoogs gekulde volk en sonder hulle sou ons nie 'n geskiedenis gehad het nie. Hulle het omtrent al die kafees in Egipte gehad. My ma sê hulle het baie mites gehad wat seker in die kombuis gewerk het. · Demokrates was 'n beroemde Griekse wysheid wat rondgeloop en mense raad gegee het. Hy is dood omdat hy verskriklik oordosis of so iets. Ná sy dood het sy loopbaan dramaties agteruitgegaan. * IN die ou Olimpiese Spele het die Grieke kaal paal gespring, zol geswaai, en disnis gegooi. Hulle was ook lief vir budgie-jump, omdat daar niks anders was om te jump nie. * Johanna van Arkel het van 'n stapel brandwonde gesterf. Hulle het haar met 'n blaasbalk aan die brand gepomp, tot haar hare afrou geraak het van skrik. * Koningin Elizabeth was die "Maagdekoningin". As 'n koningin was sy 'n sukses, maar nie as 'n maagd nie. Sy het haar volk se probleme aangetrek en was altyd mooi geklee. * Dit was n tydperk van groot uitvindsels en ontdekkings. Gutenberg het die wynpers uitgevind. Hy het die slaweklokke gelui deur dit in die wynpers vas te draai dat die wyn spat. * Die grootste skrywer van die Renaissance was William Shakespeare. Hy is in die jaar 1564 gebore en die geskiedkundige mense dink dit was op sy verjaardag. Hy het nooit geld gemaak nie, en is net beroemd oor die toneelstukke wat hy geskryf het. Hy het tragedies, komedies en historektomieë geskryf. Romeo and Juliet is een voorbeeld. * Abraham Lincoln het Amerika se grootste presedent geword. Lincoln se ma is dood toe sy nog 'n maagd was en hy is gebore in 'n houthut wat hy met sy eie hande gebou het in die franse evolusie. * Johann Babbelastiaan Bach het baie komposisies geken en het so ook baie kinders gehad. Hy is dood sedert 1750 tot vandag toe. Bach was die beroemdste komponis in die wêreld, amper soos Händel. Händel was half-Duits, half-Italiaans en half-Engels wat Hollangs gepraat het. * Beethoven het musiek geskryf al was hy doof. Hy was só doof dat hy harde musiek geskryf het. Hy het ver in die woude gaan loop selfs al het almal na hom geroep. Beethoven het in 1827 opgehou bestaan en dis hoekom hy later dood is. Hy het rooi hare by geboorte gehad toe noem sy ma hom Beethoven. Sy hare het egter na sy eerste bad heelwat verander. * Die negentiende eeu was 'n tyd van baie uitvindsels. Mense het opgehou om met die hand te reproduseer en met toestelle begin reproduseer. * Die uitvinding van die stoomboot het 'n netwerk van riviere laat ontstaan, waarna die mense gevlug het as die water te warm raak van die stoom wat afgeblaas word. * Die Toekoek is 'n voël wat nie haar eie eiers kan lê nie. * Parallelle lyne ontmoet mekaar nooit nie, tensy jy een of altwee van hulle buig. * 'n Sirkel is 'n lyn wat sy ander end ontmoet sonder om te end. Daarom is dit moeilik om sy end te kry, voordat jy dronk word. * Die maan is 'n planeet net soos die aarde. Daar bly net een man wat baie gelukkig is. Een keer 'n jaar raak sy koeie mal en spring oor die maan. * Vegatiewe voortplanting is 'n proses waarin een individu per ongeluk 'n ander individu vervaardig waarop net die ouma trots is.

    An Australian teacher asks her students if they're Wallabies fans. Everyone raises their hand except one little girl. The teacher says, "Why aren't you a Wallabies fan?" "I am a Springbok fan". The teacher asks why? "Because my mom is a Springbok fan, and my dad is a Springbok fan, so I'm a Springbok fan too!" The teacher says "That is no reason. What if your mom was a moron and your dad was a moron, what would you be then?" "Then I'd be a Wallabies fan!”

    I don't smoke, so I don't know what cigarettes cost, but I know a lot of people who buy the contraband stuff for around 10.00 a packet of 20. It smells like burning grass though and cannot be good for them. It may be my imagination, but more and more folk are giving up and are going the vape route - especially the younger generation. None of my family smoke and I do not allow anyone to smoke in my house or cars. Wife's family smoke, but they sit at the pool and quite frankly I could not care if it is raining or freezing cold that is the rule. Governments all over are onto this "sin-tax" excuse. It is mostly, and in our case definitively, because governments employ (deploy) fools to work with the finances. There is also too much and too easily monies spent on rubbish - in our case much of the monies are spent in order to "buy" votes so the fuckers can stay in power and thus continue to ride the gravy train. Just look at SA's spending on grants, almost every one of the unwashed masses is on some form of grant (I think at last count some 18million people) and they are so dumbed down that they believe the "treat" of the ANC that they will lose the grant if they don't vote ANC. Then we had this buffoon announce free education in a vain attempt to sway voters in December - Looking at the shortfall reported in this budget it is quite clear that just half of the governments illicit spending, corruption and plain thievery could have prevented the shortfall, we may even have had surplus.

    OK - So what about this lovely piece of legislation in the wake of CR's hammering on expropriation. That bill is very dangerous.. Any black or white South African who owns a home, a car, or unit trusts is vulnerable to outright expropriation once the Investment Bill becomes law. And this is most likely to happen when the ANC fears losing an election, according to Dr Anthea Jeffery of the SA Institute of Race Relations.

    I suppose under the current "thinking" even Danie Gerber and Naas would have looked totally average.... Most of these "decisions" are made by people who never played in the position they are fucking with - some of them never even played the game..WTF!
  14. Super Rugby 2018

    True, they fucked up a few players already in the process of changing a player' natural position to one that some fool thinks will be better.. Those two positions are as different as a scrummy and a flyhalf. Different skill set and technique needed. Think Frans Steyn, Hougaard, Serfontein etc.

According to the Nashville Post, Gibson’s chief financial officer, Bill Lawrence, left after six months on the job and just as $375 million in senior secured notes mature and $145 million in bank loans become due, if they aren’t refinanced by July The departure of Lawrence was seen as a bad sign for a company trying to re-organize.

    http://www.iol.co.za/news/crime-courts/naas-botha-faces-bankruptcy-2018139 Pretoria - Rugby legend Naas Botha’s estate was provisionally sequestrated by the high court in Pretoria on Thursday, after a bank claimed he owed it more than R1.1 million on a mortgage bond for a property in Mooikloof, east of the city. Hendrik Egnatius Botha – popularly known as Naas – was not at court, nor did he oppose the provisional sequestration application, although the papers were served on him by the sheriff. He also did not submit an affidavit to the court setting out his possible defence. Judge Peter Mabuse gave the retired Springbok fly-half until June 15, to oppose the application and give reasons as to why he should not be finally sequestrated. Botha, a four-time Rugby Player of the Year winner, has been involved in a six-year financial battle with Nedbank. In December 2009, the bank turned to court for the first time to demand that Botha and his wife, Karen, pay back the money they owed in terms of the mortgage. His wife had obtained a bond from Nedbank in January 2006 to buy the property, and Botha signed surety for it. As the couple defended the bank’s action, Nedbank decided to settle after the Bothas undertook to make certain payments. Dana van Zyl, a legal adviser for Nedbank, said in court documents, that shortly after the settlement, Karen sold the property for an amount which was not enough to repay the full loan amount. The couple also failed to make regular monthly instalments to the bank, as agreed. At that time, the couple owed the bank R1 357 474 and was due to pay back R17 000 a month over seven years. A new agreement was then signed, in terms of which Nedbank agreed to reduce the monthly instalments to R8 500 a month. Van Zyl said the couple once again fell in arrears and a third agreement was entered into last year. By then the amount owed was about R1.1m. Van Zyl said the couple failed to pay the debt in March, June and July last year. The bank then decided to withdraw the agreement. Last August, the court ordered the couple to pay the more than R1.1m, and a month later an order was issued that their movable property could be sold on execution to recover the money. The sheriff went to the couple’s Lynnwood Park home to serve the warrant of execution. The sheriff said he gave the notice to Botha, who said he did not have money nor disposable assets. The sheriff, having returned empty-handed, said in a statement: “No disposable assets were either pointed out to me or could be found after a diligent search.” Van Zyl said it would be to the advantage of the creditors if the estate could be sequestrated and a trustee appointed to investigate Botha’s financial affairs. He questioned Botha’s reported lack of funds and said the legend was a well-known television presenter, who provided commentary on rugby games, and represented the Springboks as fly-half from 1980 to 1992. “He lives in an upmarket residential area and his income is likely to be higher than average.” Van Zyl submitted that Botha also stated on his online profile that he “drives a Toyota Prado… his favourite holiday is visiting Mickey and Minnie at Disney World and his hobby is golf, golf and more golf…” Botha was in the past or still is a director of 42 corporate entities, he added. According to Van Zyl, Botha had in September 2011 issued a statement to the bank reflecting his assets were valued at R16.4m. “It is strange that all these assets could have dissipated in a period of five years,” Van Zyl said. Nedbank said it had no knowledge of his income, assets and whether Karen was gainfully employed. It said that a trustee should investigate these issues. Karen was earlier declared insolvent by the court, after she could not repay the property debt to Nedbank.

    Skulduggery! You guys are both bean-counters. I had to do bean counting as a subject. I have analysed and consulted on many businesses. When something does not look right, it normal is not. One would obviously need to see a bit more of the figures / projections etc to look at ratios, but you need to have a big turn over and quite a healthy ROI record to acquire such a big financial facility. I'm willing to bet that some digging will unearth a few gems. Sounds a bit "Steinhoffish"

    So, today I turned my office TV into a full Windows 10 PC with HD resolution and controlled from my Samsung Smart phone - which now is a mouse track-pad and a keyboard - no wires no nothing. How did I do that? I stuck an Intel compute stick into the HDMI port - jumped the charger to the TV USB port (the only wire) and installed Intel Remote Keyboard on my phone. Now I am typing this and surfung the Internet using just my cellular phone and the TV. Because all my emails are consolidated under Outlook.com and all my docs are in One Drive - I have no problems. The Compute stick is as big as a large USB data-device and fits into your pocket easily. Now you can goi to a client who has a TV in the boardroom and do a presentation without lugging a laptop around. http://www.intel.co.za/content/www/za/en/compute-stick/intel-compute-stick.html https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.intel.remotekeyboard
