Trouble in Oldham

One or more of the following videos (below) is expected to a 90% probability, to disappear within the next 3 months from Youtube. Just to be clear – that means there is a 10% probability that they will remain. Did I make a prediction? I did NOT! I made aRead More

It’s official: people are stupid!

Well, well – it’s been a funny old day! LOL. I was just at a meat market in a big city and in a 60-second conversation with a meat trader – he told me “..people are stupid! They don’t know what they’re doing or where they’re going.” This chap ownsRead More

Everybody

The following I’ve been told about ‘everybody’. Everybody: Needs somebody. Needs friends and confidants. Gets sick at some point. Is born and dies. Has good in their hearts. Is capable of evil. Breaths air, sleeps, eats, drinks water, and goes to the toilet. Has brains. Is free to do whatRead More

Human weaknesses

‘Everybody’ knows about the strengths in human nature! By ‘everybody‘ I mean a majority of people. In any event ‘everybody’ uses the term ‘everybody’ – or ‘not everybody’ conveniently – so I’m using the term. And – I don’t give a monkeys whether I know ‘everybody’ – and I don’t!Read More

In the course of our conversations, we identified some challenges or things that need to be resolved in their work-life interface. All inferences made about my relationship to this personRead More

Let me take ‘interpersonal violence’ asRead More

Knock on the door

Well, I’m making breakfast this morning – around 10:00 AM – and I hear the doorbell ring. No – I didn’t think that the ‘authorities’ had come for me, finally. So I step into my storm porch and see a man and a child. He’s smartly dressed in suit andRead More

Now I get it.

For quite some time I’ve been looking at the rules of logic in relation to how people reason on various things. Repeatedly I came up with a gap between the rules of logic and the application of reasoning. In retrospect I discover that I unknowingly made an assumption, that ifRead More

Talking about time

I realised before that ‘time’ is perhaps the most important thing in life. It’s this simple: there is a time between birth and death. I declare that anybody who argues otherwise makes themselves out to be a fool. I’m not interested in how one (or ‘you’) measures time or aboutRead More

The problem of knowledge

As this is in the domain of social media, I shall be overly cautious and convoluted at times, so as to head off my words being twisted out of shape by ‘bent minds’. First off, I am not saying that journals  are causing a problem! Next if I make what appearsRead More
