What is causation and causality?

What causes you a pain in the neck or backside is important. So ’cause’, ‘causation’ and ‘causality’ should be important to everybody! But these words don’t mean exactly the same thing, though they sit in relation to each other. Who said this? I did! And you bet – I seeRead More

Your deceptive mind

Just in case – I am not referring to any known person’s mind! This post is inspired by the book Your Deceptive Mind: A Scientific Guide to Critical Thinking Skills – Course Guidebook by Dr Steven Novella. Nothing in this post refers to any identifiable individual, except where explicitly stated.Read More

Audible v Scribd

This is for ‘bookworms’. 👀😂 If others don’t know what this means – tough, Google is not your friend! But I say be cautious. This is not a recommendation to purchase anything. I derive no advantages in the past present or future by sharing the above information.

Is there value in reading books?

It  may sound like a stupid question to some. If you think or know so, move on swiftly. This post is motivated by a web-based conversation I had the other night. I mentioned some book in a forum as a reference – not a recommendation to purchase. Someone then responded,Read More

Not enough time?

One of the commonest words I hear from my close circle of contacts is ‘later‘. The next is ‘I’ll check’ – like do I need to know?  Why not check first and then say ‘done it’? I don’t know. Jeeez! Maybe people feel they are being polite or  some nonsense.Read More

It’s official: people are stupid!

Well, well – it’s been a funny old day! LOL. I was just at a meat market in a big city and in a 60-second conversation with a meat trader – he told me “..people are stupid! They don’t know what they’re doing or where they’re going.” This chap ownsRead More

Musings over the past 6 months

It has been a terribly busy time. ‘Some’ immediately know, “..making money hand over fist” etc. It’s so amusing how people get ideas in their heads and before long that turns into reality. But strange is it not – that when it comes to really big ideas about making moneyRead More

Date changer software for photos

I’ve found it!! There are some nifty little applications to change the dates of file images and exif data – in batches. Why is this important? Well  – because I use Robobasket to sort my photos into folders, I need Robobasket to pick up ‘Date Modified’ and Exif data fromRead More

Confronting negativity

Negative things are often avoided by lots of people. Everybody likes a nice positive story. But it’s strange though, how bad news sells more than good news. Talk to the media houses. So at least people say to themselves and others that they don’t like negative stuff, but they’re allRead More
