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

Later

Over the last year I’ve become amused by some responses I’ve had when I send e-content by email to others. The content could be links to videos or webpages. The following is a typical list of responses: I’m in a conference in Australia. I’m on the beach. I’m out shopping.Read More

Anti-social media

The more I look at and think about so-called ‘social media’ the more I come to some very different perspectives (in general – meaning exceptions excepted as you might expect). 1. Social media is more about prying on what other people are doing. 2. People comparing themselves with other people.Read More

The silly games people play

I’m often amused by human nature, in particular the silly games people play. I often wonder why these games are played and to what end. So what’s this all about now? You’ll have to hang on or go bathe that dog and return or just bugger off completely – innit?Read More

People deserve what they don’t get

Well, well… what’s this all about now. I’m afraid you’ll have to read on. And if your dog needs a bath (and I don’t know if you who reads this has a dog and I couldn’t care less), then go bathe the dog! What do people not get? Better jobsRead More

I’m not a this sort of person

I often hear things of that nature from people e.g. “I’m not a computer person”, or “I’m not a driven by money sort of person”, or “I’m not a Nigela Lawson fan”, or “I’m not a Paxman person”, or “I’m not a Russell Brand person” or “I don’t like ToryRead More

‘The Edge’ – no mistakes in the mind.

‘The Edge’ – is a film screened in 1997.  No – I’m not about to do a film review, so calm down. I had completely missed this film and only viewed last night on Lovefilm which is now ‘Amazon Prime’.  Recently I’ve become rather saddened that most Sci-Fi films theseRead More

Location sharing on Google Maps (Android version)

Google has many options in its maps. Most people never find these options because they’re scared of trying out new options or because they don’t have time to find ways of using features, or in common British parlance, they “..haven’t been told how to do it”.  Some know of myRead More

How difficult is a straight answer.

The following is a conversation with someone online. At the heart of this is that I only need a simple yes or no answer to very straight forward question. I felt like Jeremy Paxman The question is: “Is TxxxRxxx regulated by a financial authority of some sort?”  As you willRead More

Idiocy 2.0–action time.

Well, I don’t know what to call this post. I mean it could be ‘Idiocy 29.0’ – I don’t care! This is about a phenomenon among the humans where if you say to them on such and such a date “Don’t do [this] ever”, the human then agrees. But thenRead More
