A Brief History of Time

I have a copy of this book… actually two copies. One bought a number if years ago, the second, fairly recent. Just because I own a copy (or two) doesn’t mean I believe what is written. ***Yes that’s my opinion, yours might differ.

Spooky Action At A Distance

tumblr_ose3azTur91qmtagno1_500An improvement on the theories of Stephen Hawking

The mind cannot fathom nothingness. It tends to equate it with blackness, which is something, or emptiness, which is the essence and source of everything. By bringing the Eastern notion of emptiness into the conversation, nothingness paradoxically fades into nothingness as the reason for its unfathomability becomes clear. However, before the limitless potential of emptiness expressed itself in myriad lifeforms big and small, those lives experienced nothingness by virtue of the fact that they didn’t exist and hence were incapable of experience, even that of nothingness.

A yawn in the void, a Bang, a whimper, an expansion.

Spirograph patterns of symmetrically arranged stars coalesce into galaxies; nuclear reactors toss sediment into orbit around themselves: planets, moons, meteors — each massive body glued to its rotating corner of the Universe by gravity.

The Linguistics of Swearing

I miss George Carlin.

Spooky Action At A Distance

lip

Not much has changed since George Carlin’s infamous 1972 Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television bit. For the young’uns or those who need a refresher, those words were (and are): shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker, motherfucker and tits. And by the way, if there truly are any young’uns reading this blog, please stop. Don’t make me tell your mom.

All adults here now? Good. Let’s continue. For some reason, I enjoy theorizing about why certain words or phrases cause such a visceral reaction in some people. Obscenity is fertile ground for exploring this concept, since the vast majority of swear words have inoffensive synonyms. Why, for instance, is every word for defecation deemed TV-appropriate except for shit? Sexual content can be downright graphic, too, as long as those engaging in such televised discussions refrain from uttering the words fuck, dick or cunt. And then there are the “mild”…

Fire Cider: Horseradish, Chilli & Apple Cider Vinegar

***shared***

Before winter is over altogether I must tell you about Fire Cider – my new favourite tonic to ward off winter ills. Despite all attempts to remain virus-free, I got sick this year. It was nothing but a nasty cold but it left me with a hacking cough for weeks and sinuses so blocked I felt like my head was under water. I work in an open plan office and at the height of my suffering it seemed that everyone else was sick too. For several weeks all I could hear was a chorus of coughing and complaining; rows of desks were half empty, and those who remained stumbled around bleary-eyed pumping hand sanitiser into snotty palms. Even the ABC agrees that it’s been a rough winter for bugs so I’ll take all the help I can get, even if it means swilling apple cider vinegar infused with horseradish, chilli and onion in the name of health (I know it sounds disgusting, but stay with me).

A total eclipse of SANITY: America under the spell of mass hysteria engineered by a dangerous, globalist-controlled media – NaturalNews.com

(Natural News) The total eclipse of sanity is now under way across America. Mass hysteria has gripped the minds of the gullible, many of whom now hallucinate their “reality” on a moment-by-moment basis.
Before the Charlottesville violence, the entire Left of America was hallucinating Russians behind every corner. Now, they’re hallucinating Neo-Nazis everywhere they look. This isn’t hyperbole, either: The hysterical Left is quite literally hallucinating almost everything they now believe: That all Trump supporters are Hitler-saluting Nazis; that all White people are racists; that America is still a slave-ownership nation; that Civil War statues might come to life and put them all back in chains, and other absurdities.
Never in the history of our country have so many people been brainwashed to believes such obvious absurdities and lies. That’s because never before in our nation’s history has the globalist-run fake news media been so determined to undermine America and everything it stands for. The goal of the twisted, anti-America media as it operates today is to indoctrinate the masses with ginned-up hatred, intolerance and violence so that the nation can be thrust into a civil war from which radical Marxism, communism and Left-wing totalitarianism can sweep into power.

I don’t always agree with naturalnews but this… makes some sense.

Want to lose weight? Stop eating these…

Gone with the Wheat

Blueberry-smoothie.jpg

Aside from being gluten free(which can cause weight gain), there are things that we eat that can stall our weight loss progress.  In this article from cheatsheet.com, there are some common foods that might be surprisingly bad for weight loss.  Here’s an excerpt:

Diet soda

Dieters may be apt to slurp down diet soda, and why not? It has zero calories and the carbonation-lovers argue that the carbonation can make you feel full. Some studies report that the more diet sodas a person drinks, the more weight they’ll gain. Why? The Denver Post explains the artificial sweeteners that keep diet soda calorie-free actually confuse your body since the sweetener is unknown. When your body doesn’t know how many calories you’ve consumed, it will respond by craving more high-calorie foods.

All sweetened beverages, such as soda, and even juice, are not good for you.  Sub in water or unsweetened iced tea…

BUILDING A CEREAL BOX ECLIPSE PROJECTOR!

My eyes instantly start watering whenever I scan the sky and the sun comes into view, that’s enough protection for me. Yes, I’m no idiot, I look away.
As for people that say to watch out for the reptilian invasion, during the eclipse; do they really think my boss is a reptilian? It’ll be dark for two minutes, that doesn’t mean my work will stop.

Today’s Theme Music

Michael Seidel, writer

It’s the last Friday before E-Day 2017, otherwise proclaimed as The Doritos Great American Eclipse of 2017*.  I thought an appropriate song is R.E.M.’s “It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine),” from nineteen eighty-seven. It’s a catchy tune, perfect for a non-apocalypse.

* That’s not true. Doritos has nothing to do with the eclipse. It’s fake news that I made up.

KIDS IMPRISONED IN SCHOOLS!

The back to school season is inching closer every day, and that means it’s time to start shopping for essential school supplies and clothing. According to a new survey, more than nine in 10 parents say back-to-school shopping for their children stresses them out. So what’s causing this? The Back to School Stress Infographic portrays what exactly is leading to parents experiencing so much anxiety.

Those who can’t do, teach. Schools dumbdown children!  It’s a ridiculous terror to jail children in schools for sixteen years in order to brainwash them and keep teachers busy!  No wonder children revolt violently. Dropping out is a smart strategy of cutting losses short.

Kids only need literacy, something they can learn from parents.  Nevertheless, government does not allow children to grow properly and work, imprisoning them in schools for at least twelve years, in order to brainwash them with socialist propaganda.  This brings poverty and resentment to many children.  Many smart kids manage to drop out of school, getting all the education they need through internet.
