Anger has always been an issue for me. Well not really anger, more of a short fuse when it comes to the temper. Maybe thats the same thing, but dont get me pissed off about it!
Ive broken Windows, put holes in walls and obliterated Cheetah 125+ Joysticks. Some people are placid, some are normal and others are mental like me.

We did an anger management course last night on air for the listeners, where with an official test, ripped out of a magazine, we were able to determine whether or not they had an anger problem. If they did, it was well advised that they go off and seek an anger management course! Just today I came across the following tips on controlling your anger...

  • Breathe deeply, from your diaphragm; breathing from your chest won't relax you. Picture your breath coming up from your "gut."

  • Slowly repeat a calm word or phrase such as "relax," "take it easy." Repeat it to yourself while breathing deeply.

  • Use imagery; visualize a relaxing experience, from either your memory or your imagination.

  • Nonstrenuous, slow yoga-like exercises can relax your muscles and make you feel much calmer.
All the above are all well and good, if your somewhat sane. But if your like me and occasionally take a hammer to a large cardboard box, then chances are your blood is bubbling away like a pot of spaghetti about now. On the serious side though, one caller came on the air and admitted he had a really serious problem with anger. He had ended up in prison, put his partner in hospital and much more besides, and alot of it was drink related. Great guy, and it was great to hear such honesty on the air. I did feel though that there was no point in giving him the test, we gave other listeners.

Something that I had got into my head to start last night, completely slipped my mind. The population is down in the city by 3.2%, and its up in the county. Basically this means that either the city crowd are

a) Not having as much sex as they used to

b) Are having more sex, but have bought shares in Durex

c) They've all became gay

On the other hand, the county is up which means that

a) They're having more sex

b) They're all bisexual

c ) They've sold their shares in Durex to the city crowd

What Im proposing is, given the facilities in the station, or more so the size of the car park where the station is located, Im inviting people to come out there late at night. Not for sex mind, but to concieve. Only city folk shall be granted access to the car park, because after all the city population is down. On occasion when Ive left the station Ive witnessed a few acts of conception going on in bushes or cars parked in darkly lit areas. Maybe these brave people have realised the population is down, regardless of the Census, and wanted to do something about it. What they fail to realise is, you cant get a bun in the oven, through your mouth! More details shall be revealed later on this evening, on the show. Just on a final note, myself and my good producer Dave Mac, are vowing to bare witness to as many conceptions as possible!

Hi Victor Barry! Love the show!
Ever hear the saying "Don't drink and park because accidents make little people." ? well, it's true!
I'll spare the details, but my 1 year old son is a spittin' image of this Irishman I drank and parked with approx. 15 months ago. "This Irishman" said that was his first time doing it in a car, because the european cars R 2 small. But I 'spose where there's a will there's a way. Right Blazer?
