Fathoming the concept of evil

The word evil comes up many times in ordinary life. I’ve encountered it in professional life as well. Of course, I just have one life. In these posts the word ‘evil’ has been applied as a tag. On reflection I have never explored deeply the concept of evil. So that’sRead More

The Knife – Pass this on

I’ll no doubt be judged by the many as fricking weird for posting this! Do I give a flying banana!? Did I say it wasn’t weird? I did not. I’ve looked at this music vid many times over the years. I’ve wondered, ‘What does it mean’? Well, obviously it meansRead More

Lord Sumption

The  things I’ve heard about him are of the following kind, ‘he’s weird’ and ‘he’s spoken some nonsense about [blah blah]’. Some people only remember a headline that went like, Lord Sumption tells stage 4 cancer patient her life is ‘less valuable’ – which was spread across several tabloid andRead 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

Conspiracy theory or conspiracy fact?

Let’s get down to business – ‘only conspiracy theorists like conspiracy theories.‘ That’s what I’m told. Those who are labelled as conspiracy theorists are labelled away and marginalised with a number of adjectives e.g. deranged, demented, fantasists, paranoid, delusional. And of course, the words ‘conspiracy theorist’ are enough to make,Read More

Situation on the side of a road

I tell you, somebody sends morons in my direction! It’s a plot – or I’m like some sort of magnet for fools! Okay – calm down. No need to call the authorities to ‘take me away’. So what it is, is this: I park my car partly on a pavementRead More

Scratching from home

Oh yes – this is what people do when they claim they’re working from home. Did I say ‘everybody’? I did not! It’s amazing isn’t it – how people reach for the exceptions first. Okay – so yes – loads of people, do work hard from home in the pandemicRead More

Freedom rang but did not reign

It probably goes with out saying that ‘these are very troubled times’. I stare into the abyss. Oh dear – I risk being diagnosed again! All existentialists are to be diagnosed with some mental disorder, I imagine. This is the way of the world today. And yes – mental ‘health’Read More

The kick – Arkell v Pressdram

This is a story that involved a fair amount of my time. If you’re the sort of person who has a dog to bathe, go do that. I’m so not interested in whether you who may read this has a dog or not. Points first summary: I interfaced with anRead More

A fairy tale of lies

Some will become obsessed with the video below, and unearthing my supposed underlying motivations for posting it. I well know that others will invoke their own suppositions which will form their reality foisted up on me e.g. “you’re just  obsessed with her.. don’t tell lies!“.  I’ll leave that right there, cuzRead More
