For the love of cliché

I’m pretty sure some will be jumping on the net to read up what cliché means. Nobody is getting a dissertation here today. To start off net-crawlers, go here to read up. The one that has been getting to me more in the last 2 years is ‘.. to beRead More

Proved: Social media turns people into idiots

Oh dear – in the last week the meme factory has been in overdrive after Nicky Minaj tweeted as below.   This sparked side splitting laughter all over the net! Minaj is such an expert that, the Minister of Health in Trinidad had to fact check what she said onRead More

Public domain

What is the ‘public domain’? This came up recently (Saturday 18th Sept 2021), in a telephone conversation. I had emailed a certain (nameless) medical professional earlier that day, in the context of business i.e. not some sort of social contact. In that email I said: This email address from whichRead More

The NXIVM manipulation

Some have never heard of NXIVM. Obviously they were too busy on the likes of Facebook and Instagram or whatever is more popular these days. For those not stuck on LameFlix or don’t have a dog to bathe immediately, pick up the background by a quick read of this. IRead More

The mug that caused a problem

This is gonna be a shorter one. Yep it’s about that mug in the photo below. So a few days ago I bought this mug, I think it was from Home Bargains for £1.59. I didn’t want anything expensive because it was for use at work. After a couple daysRead More

Liars the lot

This is gonna be a shorter one. Who are these liars? They are none other than my so-called friends and almost non-existent family! Mostly on a weekend, I do my blogging and send links to others. The emerging pattern is: Quick response. Some comment that shows they have done theRead More

The support people seek

Lately I’ve been thinking about ‘support’. As always I ask, “What does it mean?” What do people think it means? What people don’t consider in providing or receiving support is that it can be dysfunctional or destructive. The reasons why the latter are almost never considered or weighed in theRead More

Manipulation

This is not an academic exploration of what manipulation means. Read that again. You don’t get a ‘balanced perspective’. You get unbalanced originality. If you don’t like that bugger off now! The trouble with words is that people want perfect definitions. The reality is that, it is rare for wordsRead 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
