Schrödinger’s microwave!

Some will have heard of Schrödinger’s Cat  and some will not have heard of it. Those who have not heard of it may reach for Google or YouTube – but they may be too dim to understand any of that. Oooo.. how condescending! You can’t speak reality these days onRead More

Peterson’s illness and related matters

Oh well, as I do on a Sunday morning (2021-01-31) I read many of the broadsheets and some tabloids. There’s so much going on the world these days, it’s very difficult to decide what to focus on. You could spend your life reading everything on COVID-19 (Cornavirus or SARS-Cov-2). ButRead More

What can be learned from the stupid?

The pandemic period has assaulted me with stupidity – left, right, centre, top and down. It has been a very painful period. Some will say, “Well, you didn’t have to take in all that stupidity. You could have just looked elsewhere.” Before I get into that get into the interviewRead More

Why do I bother?

The following is my response to an article in the FT on 2020-12-26. Tough if you don’t have access. I felt compelled to respond, but I’m not sure why – as it’s none of my business to educate the masses of mainly stupid people! So I’ve been wondering, “Why doRead More

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

Pre-determinants – your ignorance is bliss.

For some time I’ve been occupied with things that pre-determine what we think or do. I’ve often referred to patterns and cultures as pre-determinative. Then I looked into attitudes. As I go on, I think more about this. The uneducated and dim will obviously baulk at all this. After all,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

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

Achieved: Mission Impossible!

The photographs will be an instant distraction in this post. Yeah some saw a boiled or poached egg on plate, and will have thought ‘What’s great about that?!! FFS‘. Except that it isn’t ‘a boiled or poached egg’ in the usual sense of how eggs are boiled or poached (usingRead More
