Dear ice hockey friends!
Do you still remember the good old days of ice hockey?
Ice hockey boards were stiff, solid board walls that did not give a millimetre in a collision.
Skates still had leather shafts.
Their blades were fixed on two steel supports, which were riveted to the sole.
Hockey sticks were still made of wood.
Made in Canada or Finland by manufacturer like Hespeler, Sherwood or Koho.
Hard shots and one-timers, as with today's carbon fibre sticks made in China, were then simply impossible!
A wooden hockey stick blade would have broken off, or would at least have twisted in such a way that the puck would have jumped over it!
Gloves were made of leather and made by Cooper.
The player's thumb was protected with a stiffening called Armadillo.
Protective equipment was more like a medieval knight's armour, but no longer made of sheet steel, but hard, stiff fibres.
Very uncomfortable to wear during a game!
A RULE THAT SLOWED DOWN GAMES!
When the then applicable rule of Red Line Offside made the game much more complicated and thus much slower than today's games!
THOSE WERE THE GOOD OLD ICE HOCKEY DAYS, MY FRIENDS!
MY BEST NEW YEAR's WISHES TO THE YEAR 2022!
WITH MY APPERTAINING NEW YEAR's SPEECH!
The latter is absolutely exempt from amusement tax!
COLLECTIVE OUTBURSTS OF HILARITY!
Again the ordinary calendrical fixed collective outbursts of hilarity all over the world.
Let the corks pop and the fireworks rockets rise! Bang!
MOST STUPID NEW YEAR's SPEECHES!
Like on any New Year's Day, the goofy New Year's speeches of the governing dorks.
A hodgepodge of hollow phrases, that their scribblers wrote on their behalf.
Full of silly banalities about COMMONALITY, HOPE, FUTURE, SOLIDARITY, blah, blah, blah!
BY THE WAY, THERE IS NO OBLIGATION - NOT YET! - TO LISTEN TO THIS HOGWASH!
That will spare you a lot of headache, caused by listening!
A MATCHING NEW YEAR's CONCERT TO ANY NEW YEAR's SPEECH?
How about some ARMPIT FARTING?
This is the sole appropriate incidental music to their bloviation:
AN INFERNAL FART CONCERT!
A GOOD MOTTO AND RESOLUTION TO THE NEW YEAR!
«WHETHER IT WILL GET BETTER IF IT GETS CHANGED, I DON'T KNOW.
THAT IT MUST GET CHANGED IF IT IS TO BECOME BETTER IS CERTAIN!»
GEORG CHRISTOPH LICHTENBERG (1742 - 1799)
German physicist, satirist, and author of the waste books.
TAKE THE CHANCE, TO GET THINGS BETTER!
Let's begin with the changes, proposed by Mr. LICHTENBERG!
Best the day after, when you are sober again!
THROW POLITICIANS ON THE DUNG HEAP OF HISTORY!
At first, all these political dorks, which sits for decades in every twaddle hut!
And throw them all on the dung heap of history to the other has-been political morons!
As a salutary lesson for the succeeding armchair sitters!
You know, these changes, mentioned by Mr. LICHTENBERG, so that things get better!
ANYWAY! HAPPY NEW YEAR!
IT'S SHOWTIME FOLKS! - SEE ME IN VIDEOS AND SLIDESHOW!
IT IS CHRISTMAS!
AND I SEE THE STAR! WITH MY LITTLE HEART AND MY CHILD'S EYES!/
«FOR IT IS GOOD TO BE CHILDREN SOMETIMES, AND NEVER BETTER THAN A CHRISTMAS, WHEN ITS MIGHTY FOUNDER WAS A CHILD HIMSELF!»
CHARLES DICKENS - author of A CHRISTMAS CAROL.
ADULT HUMANS - YOU WERE ONCE CHILDREN TOO!
TRY TO BE CHILDREN AGAIN! IT'S MUCH EASIER THAN YOU THINK!
TAKE A HEART AND REMEMBER YOUR OWN CHILDHOOD!
JUST UNCLUTTER YOUR MIND!
It's not so hard to be a child again if you really want it.
You just need to clean your mind!
Simply sweep out all the muck that has accumulated in it over the years!
Especially the muck called politics!
Believe me, it's absolutely superfluous!
And makes you blind for those things that would be really essential for you!
KEEP ALWAYS IN YOUR MIND!
«IT IS ONLY WITH THE HEART THAT ONE CAN SEE RIGHTLY; WHAT IS ESSENTIAL IS INVISIBLE TO THE EYE!»
Significantly, it was an ANIMAL, the FOX, who said this to the LITTLE PRINCE!
IT'S SHOWTIME FOLKS! - SEE ME IN VIDEOS AND SLIDESHOW!
«THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS REPRESENTING THE PEOPLE IS A FICTION, A LIE.»
(9 September 1828 - 20 November 1910)
LEO TOLSTOY Is best known for his novels War and Peace (1869) and Anna Karenina (1878), often cited as pinnacles of realist fiction.
FICTION AND LIE!
Millions of PR agencies are busy around the clock to make people believe that they could live in the best of all worlds!
But only if you buy every overpriced gimcrack that you don't need.
And that you have to elect some jerk as president!
For more freedom, more democracy, more prosperity for all, blah, blah!
Otherwise, you will spend your life in misery and poverty!
NOW THE CRUCIAL QUESTIONS ARISE!
Who pays all these publicity clowns, so that they form the already stupid people into useful idiots?
Who profits, when these useful idiots then elect some complete nitwits into their governments?
CONCLUSION BY SNOW LEOPARD VILLY!
People are much dumber than slaughter cattle!
For these complete idiots elect their butchers themselves!
«It is not our level of prosperity that makes for happiness, but the kinship of heart-to-heart and the way we look at the world.
Both attitudes lie within our power, so that a man is happy so long as he chooses to be happy, and no one can stop him.»
ALEKSANDR ISAYEVICH SOLZHENITSYN
(December 11, 1918 - August 3, 2008)
THE GREAT SON OF RUSSIA!
