Why I despair for the human race..

I sometimes become despondent about the human race – for a number of reasons. I think to myself, that people of average intelligence surely must be able to read, understand, and apply some logic to what’s going on. Surely that sort of activity is what differentiates us from all otherRead More

More ways to think ‘stupid’.

Continuing on my ‘bandwagon’ of imitating stupidity – only to ensure that I define the concept – today I review a video and make some idiotic statements that will resound with a majority of stupid people. I assure you though that the stupid statements are based on errors of applicationRead More

A kind of logic–among the intentionally stupid

1. Nick Leeson was rogue trader and criminal who brought down Baring’s bank in the 1990s. 2. Nick Leeson was a derivatives trader – aka gambler (to most people). 3. Derivatives trading and gambling are good ways to lose money. 4. It’s all illegal – why else would they haveRead More

Stupid questions and expectations

I’ve been thinking about the nature of our existence in relation to the need for money. If you don’t need money or are the type who would go ‘money isn’t everything’  – kindly leave now. Save yourself the time – really. For those who’d prefer to read on you doRead More

Perceptions of perceptions.

Then I came across http://www.ordinarypeoplechangetheworld.com/ which then took be to songs by ‘FiveRead More

Friend o’ mine called up yesterday and asked me something about ‘how you manage or deal with grief’. Yeah grief. Well, it’s one of those things you have to laugh about – and we did – in retrospect. I had an initial thought, but did not say much as heRead More

Praa…praa..praa….praaahh

Man, I just got off the phone to some mega-idiot! Trust me there is such a thing. I really wonder why I go on the phone at all to utility companies. Every bloody time I call one of these call-queuing things, my blood pressure goes up! Yesterday I wasted bloodyRead More

Will

Will is the ability to direct and control one’s body and mind. Each of those underlined words is important. Will power is the strength with which one focuses the mind or controls the body. Normally we all have control and direction over some parts of our bodies and minds. ThisRead More
