Shifting the fulcrum

As some may have realised Jumbie and I were both fascinated with George Carlin recently. To dispel any ‘mysteries’ from cropping up, we do share a lot of information about current events and other stuff. That’s easy to do if you have ‘Google Hangouts’ on cell phones (aka mobile phonesRead More

Don’t screw with me!

About two weeks ago I received notice of from Domestic and General about need to renew an insurance policy on my Freezer (a proline UFZ180P6). I notice that the cost was £66/yr and that it would renew automatically if I did nothing. The freezer is now over 4 years oldRead More

What is Critical Thinking?

Overdone politeness and redundant nonsense

First off, I expect some readers to require an understanding of the word ‘redundant’ – because, you know, we’re into such a stupid era, that people will automatically reach for what’s in their heads. So if they think ‘redundant’ means something to do with redundancy – as per being madeRead More
