If we're infecting two care workers for every patient then clearly the best treatment for Ebola is a flame thrower.

Last night the breaking news was "A little girl killed by dog." I said to wifey "Mark my words. That'll be a pitbull."

And so it was. Wearily predictable.

We all know what a nasty dog looks like (even though many of them aren't) So often the purpose is status and to intimidate which are the wrong reasons for owning a dog and - along with face and neck tattoos - make for an unpleasant and uncivilised atmosphere even where the owners are alright.

As it happens I have yet to see a Mr Tattoo Face help out at a charity event. Maybe a biker's bash where they're getting more out of it than the 'charity' - the whole point of that look is a don't-mess-with-me thing.

This is highly impolite and unfriendly.

I propose that a period of grace is given - say one dog generation, thereafter all powerful status breeds are put down at birth. Only those for police/military work should be allowed. These things just create too much unease and unhappiness - including for the owners themselves. These dogs give the owners social advantages and privileges that they have not earned and don't deserve - in fact it's often the tax payer funding them.

The Patrol

The Patrol

For once a great film about our troops in Afghanistan which doesn't make our boys look like psychos or chumps; written by a former army officer.

Bleak, isolated and stiflingly claustrophobic at times - we learn that war is filthy, uncomfortable and an utter drag. This is the closing scene and soundtrack.

Game of Thrones - Gruesome Death

Prince Oberyn Vs The Mountain - For those with strong stomachs only. **Spoiler alert** Tyrian (the dwarf pictured) finds his life is in the balance in yet another trial by combat, you may not wish to watch the clip to find out what happens.

GoT can be bloody shocking at times. Betrayal, revenge, sculduggery, sex, swearing and gore. I love it !
