Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D

  • Captain JJ ‘saurus

    Clearly your sister is the smarter one in the household to have decided to move to the Westernous Republic 😛
    I can’t believe it’s furrsday already. Woo!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Don’t be so welcoming. He didn’t specify where she’s moving to. Could just end up being one of those agoraphobic Southern hillbillies that live on the mountain. The North is where it’s at yo!

      • Captain JJ ‘saurus

        Hahaha. This is true.
        Also, on that note, come to think of it: do we really want more people here? The price of a house or a flat is already crazy enough as it is here.

        • Tell me about it, was going through the new house listing today… o my glob

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            We bought at a time when people were unsure of the area. The guy next to me just sold his house two weeks ago for 40% more. Over a 3 year period. It’s getting insane how the prices are going up.

          • It’s generally up by 20% in any estate since last year O.o

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Yea. It’s in an estate. Definitely a worthwhile buy it seems.
            I feel for the younger generation… well, for ours too. It’s become insanely expensive to buy just about anywhere.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            When you buy in a new complex you never know what’ll happen. There’s the one complex near me that sold out very quickly, fast forward a year & it’s one of the biggest hot spots for drugs & prostitution.

          • That happens when the open plan is sold for way to low. Crappy people take up the offer.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            I think the positioning of the one I live in played in my favour.
            For instance: with my wife in the clinic for so long it also made things so easy with it nearly right across the street. People pay a lot of money for convenience.

          • HvR

            Nevermind forgot there is steam….

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            She was released from the clinic on Monday. So much better now. Had to have open chest surgery, so she’s still very fragile, but she’s home. So we’re both happy.

          • That’s very good news indeed

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Been in and out of clinics for nearly two months. So it’s nice to have a “normal” life again. 😀

          • HvR

            Cheeze .. glad she is better. All the best for full fast recovery.

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Glad she’s home and hope for a full recovery as fast as it can come 🙂

          • Hammersteyn

            Yay!

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            o/

          • Hammersteyn

            Really…. Say I’m coming to Cape Town later this year where is this?

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            LOL

          • VampyreSquirrel

            It has become expensive to rent too.

          • It’s now mostly on par with buying anything around 1 million.

          • HvR

            But it is weird that 70m2 is flat is over R1mil but small/mid (150m2) sized houses comes in at R1.5mil.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            I think because most of those flats are bought to be rent out again for investment.

          • HvR

            Saw the latest rentals, would have had to move out of the north if I was still renting it is insane.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Yea man. I hear you.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I last looked years ago because I learnt two things: Property is very expensive, and I’m very poor.

          • Renting a house/apartment is usually more expensive than taking out a bond and buying the place around here in Western Cape.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            That is true. You spend your life paying off someone else’s bond and you end up with nothing.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            That’s why Westernous Republic > *insert province here*

          • To be honest, I am a Natal plaas seuntjie. Settling in around here is pretty hard for me 😛

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            I lived in Natal throughout my childhood myself. Small town.
            But I like the city life (says he who lives in the northern suburbs). 😀

          • What town? 😛

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Hmm. Not sure if I want to say that online.
            Up north. Way north.
            Where them pineapples are at.

          • Hammersteyn

            Because pineapples only grow in once place in South Africa?

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Natal people will know.

          • Hammersteyn

            Hehe I think I know. Does it start with the first letter of that game everyone wants confirmed?

          • yes xD

          • Hammersteyn

            o/

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            We moved once though. So wasn’t always there.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Haha! Yes!

          • The town with the very very hard name to say without almost swallowing your tongue?

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            Yes! That one.
            XD

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Gives me a very good idea 😛

          • A bit more west from Whitebank xD

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            And only on the other side of the fence from HELL
            Get’s [email protected] hot there.

          • Did you go to Sodwana a lot 😛

          • VampyreSquirrel

            WhiteCouch*

          • Doesn’t make that place any better xD

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            😀

          • VampyreSquirrel

            Nothing will make that place any better.

      • HvR

        No idea why everybody want to live either near the sea or on the mountain.

        • Captain JJ ‘saurus

          If you can afford someone to clean your windows and everything metal in your place every day, then the sea would be awesome.
          I’ve lived on the beach in Natal and in the mountains in the Western Cape. Now I just live in the suburbs, and I love it.

          • HvR

            on the mountain(s) you either fighting with baboons for your lunch or using your roof as a braai and almost all the neighborhoods near the sea are getting dodgy or crime ridden real fast.

  • Captain JJ ‘saurus

    I’m so glad Skywind is still going strong. I’ve been following that one for a while now. 🙂

  • Ryanza

    Is this why so many black people get shot by police

    • That’s a nice click bait title

      • Hammersteyn

        LOL

  • Ryanza

    • Hammersteyn

      I literally just threw up in my mouth and I didn’t even click play.

    • Captain JJ ‘saurus

      Aw man. This is so awesome. Poor woef.

  • Captain JJ ‘saurus

    Why the hell do I have an add for menopause on the side?
    What could I possibly have searched online (and at work) for my browser to think I need to know about that?

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      “how to make the bad man stop making fun of my eyebrows”?

      • Captain JJ ‘saurus

        So I searched for you and it linked that to menopause?
        Makes sense.

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          I work in mysterious ways.

          • Captain JJ ‘saurus

            O_o
