A battle of literary heavy weights both masters of their arts and enduring fixtures of pop culture.

But the real question….

…who wins a sword fight to the death!

Our first competitor

Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Miller

Born 15 September 1890

Died 12 January 1976

Novelist, writer, poet and playwright Agatha Christie has sold approximately 2 billion copies of her novels in a record 103 languages making her one of (if not) the most published authors of all time.

She is undoubtedly the most successful mystery writer of all time and has had 30 of her stories turned into movies.

She worked as a volunteer nurse in world war 1 out lived 2 husbands and at one time disappeared for 11 days before reappearing and being diagnosed with amnesia having no memory of the event.

And of course some quotes cause that’s my thing

“I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow; but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.”

“The impossible could not have happened, therefore the impossible must be possible in spite of appearances.”

“A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.”

“Women can accept the fact that a man is a rotter, a swindler, a drug taker, a confirmed liar, and a general swine, without batting an eyelash, and without its impairing their affection for the brute in the least. Women are wonderful realists. ”

“Never tell all you know—not even to the person you know best.”

These paint a picture of a woman who is cunning, smart, devious and pragmatic all traits that shall help her in the coming fight against…

Jane Austen

Born 16 December 1775

Died 18 July 1817

Writer of literature that has survived 250 years and is still being published and turned into movies, T.V. shows and basically permeating all layers of pop culture despite only writing 6 books 2 of which were published after her death.

One of 8 children with 6 brothers and 1 sister she was born in a time when duels were still being fought her writings were romantic in genre but also contained criticism of the gentry society from which she came.

And now of course quotes

“There is nothing I would not do for those who are really my friends. I have no notion of loving people by halves, it is not my nature.”

“I do not want people to be very agreeable, as it saves me the trouble of liking them a great deal.”

“Angry people are not always wise.”

“There is a stubbornness about me that never can bear to be frightened at the will of others. My courage always rises at every attempt to intimidate me.”

“I may have lost my heart, but not my self-control.”

A picture of a controled confident woman intelligent and aware of her soundings she will be a powerful foe.

Now on too the battle

Both fighters will adopt a style of defence and counter attack with christie being the more agressive as she tries to lull austen into a trap. With both women being smart and self controlled the final win goes to Agatha as she not only severed in the great war but also lived to about twice Austens age i have to give her the physical advantage.

Banks oh Banks is there anymore trusted and yet hated institution? well maybe the government or tax man.

Still the reviled and yet uniformly used Banks are in the firing line this week.

Now I hear you all say all “we already know that all banks are owned by the Rothschild’s, that they are part of an all powerful Jewish cabal of international bankers and diamond merchants, that they cause all wars and are secretly ushering in the new world order.”

Well to that I say  Pffftt if only, that would be easily stoppable, and before you ask no it’s not the Illuminati, the Freemasons or even one of the three different alien races scrambling for control of this world that you have to worry about either, in this case anyway.

It’s not even the fact that the world is in more debt than there is physical currency (this should shock and appall you still)

No the banking threat is simply the fact that soon (a generation or two) every single person on the globe will have a bank account.

“Wait what” I hear you yell at me through your window as i crouch outside seeing how you like my new post that unfortunately goes nowhere.

We will gloss over the fact that i’m stalking you and continue to talk about banks who will soon rule the world, or at least be a cog in the machine that does you see while you might not have to worry about the lizard people or the ranga-mole alliance or even the grey, a new player has thrown their hat in the ring to claim earth this one made entirely of people who have discovered the truth and are trying to fight back. From what i can gather they have been for the last few hundred years been acquiring all the worlds banks as well as other major corporations and think that money may save them and help them to conquer the world instead of being slaves to alien races.

So it might be time to pick a side before it’s game over for those of you trapped in the middle.
