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

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

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

Interview – self-made – different way

I was fortunate to interview Andrew Gray. Instead of viewing the 1 hour video, some will be jumping on Google to see if Andrew Gray is a person of any importance. Then they’ll go, “Who he? Never heard of him. He’s not Elon Musk.” This is how most people are –Read 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

People want answers, hope and positivity

What people want is a simple answer that will put them back on a track that they should have been on. I’ve seen it before and I’ve seen it today 13th June 2021 again, between 17:45 to 18:10PM. In essence someone who referred to me as a ‘friend’ – andRead More

Proof positive that I speak in a foreign language.

This is England. They speak English over here. It is the national language. I live in England. I grew up speaking English in another land. It’s my only language. I then spend over 30 years living in England speaking the English I knew from another land (that was an EnglishRead More

What is thinking?

In other posts I’ve looked into various errors of thinking. However, I have not actually looked deeply enough into what thinking is. So I’m thinking about thinking. Most people think that, “It’s what humans do.” Some also think that animals think. I’ve often wondered about that because I’ve seen catsRead More
