The flying sheep!

So how do you get a sheep up a power line?

The answer is easy. Just look at the picture above ๐Ÿ™‚

From the little I managed to understand from google translation the story goes.

The sheep got stuck on the power line further up the hill, where the sheep graze andย  the wire is closer to the ground/fence. The sheep’s horns got tangled and it slid down the hill on the wire.

Some German tourists helped to get it down. The locals presumably got fed up of the sliding sheep ๐Ÿ™‚

Amusing stuff

Royal mail

Looks like this may be the beginning of the end ARGHHHHH for Royal Mail.

Workforce stuck in the 70s are repeatedly shooting themselves in the foot. I doubt there is any public sympathy to those workshy lazy leaves ***********.

I doubt they’re smart enough to actually realise what they’ve started.

  • Royal Mail is losing money: Fact.
  • Most people didn’t mind royal mail, it just worked: Fact.
  • Competition is catching up, competing in the most profitable parts of the business: Fact.
  • There is plenty of room for RM to modernise in terms of automation: Fact.

As a result.

  • RM is losing the profitable business since it cannot compete: Losses get bigger.
  • People are pissed off with RM and start looking for alternatives: More losses.
  • The parts that were subsidised by the profitable parts will be simply abandoned.

Net result of the strike: More losses resulting in bigger redundancies and job cuts.
The cycle has started, the unions are to blame.

here is the news:

THE 70s ARE OVER! WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE.
Burying your head in the sand is Website longer an option, trusting in the sanity of the unions is not a strategy and it’s a stupid option.

End of Rant.
