Situation at a hotel

Well, I often post up situations I encounter as a sort of diary which then forms evidence for my patterns of thinking. Scenario This one was at a hotel A. There was some confusion on a Sunday night when I needed to check in. I had 5 nights which IRead More

The Matrix – welcome to the unreal world

For those who don’t like Sci-Fi, kindly move on NOW! I’m not giving time to grumbles. I began looking at older Sci-Fi films recently, as I’m fed up with modern Sci-Fi and other films that just lack an interesting story line. Passengers was one exception. The Matrix was a blockbusterRead More

Doing a Yorkie

Strangely enough in the last few weeks, I was looking at how people ended up at the wrong airport. Yuh know, Gatwick instead of Heathrow etc. Well, what’s prompted this post is a new one! Yeah – this is where you (not me) end up at the right airport onRead More

Are family members friends?

The easy answer to this is “family are family and friends are friends” – which is absolutely simplistic, avoidant and stupid. I’m using the word ‘friends’ here pretty loosely. Of course, I only recognised degrees of friendships. Nobody is my friend (and I’m not explaining that again). Factors compared TheRead More

Who is Stupid?

As some will know, I have conversations with an imaginary character called Stupid. I haven’t explained much about Stupid before now. How did this character develop? Over the years I’ve heard so many stupid utterances from people, that I have had to expect what ‘people’ in general will say inRead More

Is the future real?

The word ‘future’ has important meaning to human beings. I’m not about to do a thesis on what the word ‘future’ means. Look up for estimated reading time, if you have a dog to bathe. And I’m not interested in whether any particular reader has a dog or not! DefinitionRead More

A simple thing

Well, as usual people don’t know what they don’t know and won’t take the time to explore – so they need to be told.  On this occasion I’m sharing this simple timer thing that lives on Windows 10. Obviously, I can’t say nor do I have time to check ifRead More

Exercises in futility

The topic is a very big one. It’s about how people repeat actions that lead to futility. If you don’t know what futility means find a dictionary and read up. If you can’t read, what are you doing here? Futility But what is futility? It’s not just a hopeless situation. Read More

The down sides of electronic media

As the title says, this is an exploration of ‘down sides’. If you wish for a balanced perspective, move on now! I mean now! What do I mean by electronic media? I mean all forms of electronic communication and interaction e.g. emails, text (sms) messages, online banking, video conferencing etcRead More

How to talk down to people

Right – so I’m at a hotel over a few days for the purposes of work.  Yesterday 30th June 2021 around 19:00PM, I asked the receptionist if I could have a small package delivered from Amazon. She said “Yes – no problem I’ll put it on the system“.  I sawRead More
