Question for Atheitis, concerning The Afterlife.

07 July 2014, 13:52

Atheitis wrote a letter concerning the afterlife, or non-existence there-of.

Of course, I concur, and can even add an anecdote regarding Kerry Packer, the Aussie media tycoon left clinically dead for six minutes after a heart attack:

"I’ve been to the other side and let me tell you, son, there’s fucking nothing there...there’s no one waiting for you, there’s no one to judge you, so you can do what you bloody well like"

But my question does not concern humans, it concerns dishwashers. Atheitis clearly stated that he “can fix a dishwasher, iron or leaking roof, build a carport and erect an electric fence”.

My dishwasher, like Atheitis himself, is on strike four. Again, like Atheitis, it is in its golden years, but has suffered a heart attack. The lights go on, I hear the drainage pump struggling to pump, but something has clogged it up.

I have googled solutions, but they all relate to newer, computerised  models. Mine is a simple dial operated model, probably 15 years old. I have tried the open heart surgery method, viz a viz taking the front covers off, but cannot access the pump.

Pray tell, dear Atheitis, or any reader for that matter: heathen or believer, what do I do? The wife is making me wash up until such time as the machine is fixed, and it’s killing me.

Is there hope for my machine? It is a Bosch model. All prayers and practical solutions welcome.

(please, no chancer’s, this is a very serious matter)

Objectivity in politics

The recent political climate in RSA shows that south Africans are politically becoming conscious, however I must say that we need to be objective in our analysis of these dynamics. Read more...

Abandon Atheism

Once upon a time I described myself as, among other things, an atheist. The certainty of that stance was one that age and observation have gradually taught me I cannot associate myself with.  Read more...

I respect the democratic right of everyone protesting; however the escalation into destruction where people are getting hurt or killed is something I will NEVER accept. Read more...
