Cape Town is about to face the worst natural disaster in their history. In a hundred days the modern African city will have no water. Zip, zero, nada. A drought has all but dwindled the city’s water supply. The reservoir that supplies two thirds of water to its 4 million residents is nearly dry as a bone. Within a few weeks the water levels will be so low the water will not be able to flow through the pipes. If “Day Zero” arrives all taps will be turned off. It is a scary thought. Without water it is feared there will be pure mayhem as people fight for what little water is left. Businesses relying on water have already began laying off people. This is going to be one hell of a nightmare domino effect.
How could this happen? Ask their so-called government. Mis-management and the usual political denial has lead a modern city to the brink.

A modern mosque in Cape Town that is pro gay and allows women to lead prayers has been closed indefinitely after 4 days. Reason? No Loons, not because of death threats or complaints ….wait for it … because of local councillors who say they have violated municipal by-laws by not having any parking spaces….oh and because they converted an old warehouse without permission.
Yesterday I was sadden to hear of the death of veteran cricket commentator Peter Roebuck, now I discover he jumped from a 6 storey window while being questioned by police in Cape Town. Initial reports say the matter is being treated as suicide and alcohol was not involved. The police were apparently questioning him over a sexual assault allegation. RIP.
Oooh shit, my money's on the lions!
Come on people, where else would you get that up close and personal with a pride of lions? Geez, a group of British tourists are pissed that their resort safari jeep overturned and spilled them into a bunch of angry lions (Gosh, you know how many people would kill for that opportunity?). The incident happened at the Sanbona Wildlife Reserve near Cape Town. They are blaming the driver for causing the tip over by reversing too fast up a steep embankment. Added to the trauma was the fact the lions saw the tourists as ..well lunch! Needless to say they are suing the asses off the park.
