Who hasn’t got Asperger’s?

If someone declares that they have a mental disorder, most other people know that they’re to respond with sympathy. Of course, I expect to hear ‘Not necessarily‘, ‘It depends‘, and ‘not everybody‘ etc etc. Well stuff it – when anybody declares that they have depression, I know the reactions IRead More

I’m hounded by idiots

This post is of an anonymised online chat conversation I had on 14th October 2020. It went on for over 3 hours. I was doing other things in between. I was determined to learn something, though I knew I was dealing with idiots. The problem is that these idiots hadRead More

What exactly is money?

I’ve explored money before. Some say, “Everybody knows what money is.. so why ask stupid questions about it?” For simpletons, money is coin or cash in hand, or credit in the bank – end off. If that’s you, then kindly depart now. This is not a tutorial on money orRead More

Bitcoin and crytpos – is understanding useful?

Am I talking about your dreams at night? I am not! This is about people’s aspirations; the things they wish for in their quieter moments – and the things they do not reveal even to their closest (so-called) friends. Just to be clear reading of this blog post and viewingRead 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

Too honest to be true

Alessio Rastani shook up awareness about banking and government in 2011. His honesty was so good that he was accused of being a hoaxer. Who is Alessio Rastani and why you haven’t heard of him before? I dunno why? Perhaps you’ve been too busy shopping, walking dogs, don’t spend timeRead More

The Futures game: exploiting the gap.
