Kobayashi Maru

If you think this is going to be straightforward, you are in the wrong place. This is not really going to be about the Kobayashi Maru. At first I will give a brief description of what the Kobayashi Maru is about. This is not really about sci-fi. In essence itRead More

Captain Walker almost diagnosed with respect as a sleep walker

I mentioned this situation in my previous blog, where I was almost diagnosed with sleep walking by a hotel manager. Some may have thought that I was joking. I wasn’t! The explanatory theories will preoccupy many – as if I can’t conjure up these too! The facts: I’m at 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

Dream worlds

It’s one of those posts again. I just realised – even more – that the human being is content to live in a dream world. What’s that – somebody is bound to ask. Ok – so let me distract myself to explain. A dream world is  one where your ownRead More

The humans again!

I continue to despair for the human race. They seem incapable of distinguishing what is fact from what is inference. Yes – of course that is a generalisation. I can’t deal with each human  – some 6 Billion of them! Get real. If Joe says that Jane says – doesRead More

Thought for tomorrow

“Sympathy may twist logic but it cannot alter the laws of logic and the laws of physics.” – Captain Walker (July 2015).

Dislike of intensity

I’ve been thinking again – as I do – over the last few days, about another phenomenon amongst the humans. I will reference this back to myself because I draw on my experience of how people interact with me. But what is this ‘intensity’ to which I refer? I alwaysRead More
