Turning 10 seconds into 5 minutes

For a long time, I’ve been observing how little people read things. Ahhhhh… but what does ‘read‘ or ‘reading‘ mean? The best definition I’ve found is, “the cognitive process of understanding a written linguistic message.” In this post I’m referring to things that people ought to have read i.e. variousRead More

About spit!

Oh – I just had to post on this. Well, I was at a hotel last week. I had not been for several months due to COVID restrictions of several types. I had observed similar things at local supermarkets before getting to the hotel. So, this isn’t specific to hotels.Read More

Problem solving

As usual, it’s some discussion in the background that motivates me to think deeply about these things. But I draw on my experience of how people approach problems in general. I’ve been trying to extract some broad themes across a range of ‘problems’. So, I’m not focusing on mathematical, ITRead More

Time wasting junk

Over the last 2 weeks I’ve been on an e-cleaning binge! That means I’ve been sorting out loads of electronic files of all types and cleaning up electronic messages. Did I say ‘electronic messages‘? Just checking. Yes – I did! Some fool wants to know what does ‘electronic messages’ mean.Read More

Evil people and music

I’ve been told by many in my very limited circles that epic music is evil and only listened to by weird people. Well, weird I may be but ‘evil’ I am not – except to stupid people! Stick with the ‘evil’ thing. How do people come to ‘know’ that epicRead More

There’s a virus among us!

In case anybody thought they were gonna get a lecture with references to facts and figures, I state now – as I’ve done several times in the past – that I’m not here to spoonfeed anybody’s ass! I’ve been very silent on the COVID-19 virus until now. I’ve been watchingRead More

Controlling your world

Did I say ‘controlling the world?’ I did NOT! I said ‘your world’. What does ‘your world’ mean? I mean the probabilities of events that are happening now and preparing for probabilities of events likely to happen in the future. Some fool needs an example. It’s this simple: if youRead More

Mental health recovery

This weekend I’ve been thinking a lot about this. I searched all my knowledge bases. I then broke this down to the simplest aggregate of ideas. At the outset, none of this is advice for any known or unknown individual. The bio-psychosocial model of care has been around for theRead More

The cost of distraction

What is distraction? Some will jump on the internet to find out what it means – searching for some guru to tell um. I’ve not even looked on the internet. For me it means losing attentional focus on things of importance. Nope – I’m not going to define each wordRead More

Victims of their parents’ stupidity

Some people think that only the mentally ill can have delusions, whilst others label various politicians as delusional but not suffering with a mental disorder. The main point is that people can and do believe whatever they want. People can evaluate any evidence they might find and come up withRead More
