Missive From ‘Merica: Happy Good Friday!

Welcome, Dear Reader, to Easter at the LoL…

*Cade’s buns are hot, Clicky, butt not cross… /grabs smokes… Mind you, let’s see what he says in his latest missive…*

I’m guessing that your penance will be voting for someone/something you don’t want to vote for. I say that based on a commercial I saw on YouTube last night, and the commercial was on the topic of Brexit. The commercial was obviously for Leave, but also appeared to be non-Tory. So what I got to thinking about, was karma. Or, Newton’s Third Law if you hate religion or whatever. You think it possible that there are those angling to force Conservatives to vote their own party out? Their logic being, if “Leave” is indeed a valid result, that this should be reflected in the next election’s results…right? Well, when in the fuck IS the next election in The UK?

May 5th, 2022

But wait, what’s this?

When is the next general election? Theresa May says 2022 – but it’s not as simple as that

Not only that, but I just saw a tweet that the Tories “can” hold another no confidence vote if they so choose, even tho currently by “the rules” they can’t do this again until December of 2019.

If you are in charge of “the rules”, and you don’t like the way things are going, change the rules…simple. That’s why you are elected in the first place right?

Q: You think “black lists” actually exist?

A: ??? ¿

You think blacklisting is a real thing? Would someone be picked out, to be picked on? Or is just…me.

Is this the kind of shit that you want to be doing on a Sunday? And yes, it’s Sunday your fucking pack of dunderheaded dolts. Check the calender.

Or calendar

Shouldn’t you be cooking or cleaning or drinking beer and grilling? What’s with all this politics bullshit on the weekend. Of course, if you don’t keep up on weekends, these slimy fuckers might try and slide some sneaky bullshit through whilst you relax and recoup from a long and difficult work week.

Which, that reminds me…that “cale” bit led me to…

Triticale

…and that reminded me of a documentary I watched the other day. There’s been some blokes and blokettes trying to recreate Egyptian beer. The “grain for threshing” bit in that definition reminded me of some of the things they talked about. Beer was actually a very important foodstuff. But hey, don’t take my word for it, watch it your own damn self.

Does “nature” have any bones, and if so, can they be cracked? Wait, what am I talking about. Of COURSE nature has bones. She’s given me 206 bones on loan for an unspecified amount of time. But that’s not what I meant really. I was thinking about the easterly winds that have become so prevalent here in this part of North Texas. Yesterday morning, it got cold as fuck, and stormy as fuck. The low-level winds were from…you guessed it…

the east

Easterly winds here are unheard of, but that’s exactly what’s been happening for the past several years. It was very prominent yesterday, and the winds came in from the east for hours. So no, we aren’t talking about a rapid shift due to a storm cell’s dissipation, this was more like a front. A front, that should be coming from the north or northwest at this time of the year since we are coming out of winter into spring. But no, it’s coming from the east. Roob was kind enough to alert me to some blizzard going on somewhere else, but these winds and their direction really has me a shade baffled.

^Marlene Dietrich Ich bin von Kopf bis Fuß auf Liebe eingestellt^

How much of a shift at a certain point is required to change the direction of a flow entirely? I’m thinking about ocean gyres here, but I equate those with the same mechanics that drive our atmosphere. In this part of the world, we get winds and waters from both the Atlantic and the Pacific, and many times we get both at the same time. I’m just wondering if the stuff coming off of Africa during this 2019 hurricane season is going to have a tendency be be more southerly. Perhaps even if some hurricanes might turn south instead of turning north, and/or, the northerly tracks will be erratic and/or less predictable according to current models/modeling. We got no, and I mean NO cold northerly winds this year. The “northers” we usually get here have become much lighter and infrequent, and this year, we got none. We used to get those Siberian/Canadian winds that were so strong and cold, that they’d cut right the fuck through you when outside. Cover your fucking chest, because they suck the wind and heat right out of you. The strong westerlies in late winter have vanished too.

Extinction Rebellion appears to be a real thing.

Extinction Rebellion

I wonder if out of work heroes would create their own villains in order to get back into the job market? It didn’t work out so well for Captain Amazing in the movie ‘Mystery Men’. Watched a clip of some member of Extinction Rebellion on a TV show, the “Rebellion” dude gave some plea about how passionate he was about starving people, and the presenter told him off/called the group…

“incompetent, middle-class, self-indulgent people who want to tell us how to live our lives.”

Q: Why should starvation inspire passion?

A: ???

Don’t you have better things to be passionate about? The new Avengers movie opens soon, new Star Wars movie out later this year, the new fall fashions have already been displayed at Paris Fashion Week…fuck starving people/poor people. Let them get a job like everyone else, or die.

^UMEK & Mike Vale – Kids with Money (Ant Brooks Remix)^

If you don’t work, you don’t eat.

Well actually, if you don't work, you don't get money

So yeah, you don’t work, you don’t get paid money, and then you can’t go buy food to eat.

Prolly some taxes in there somewhere

Likely also to be some supply chains and other infrastructures embedded in there.

Gotta make sure that these existing infrastructures pay dividends
^AronChupa – I’m an Albatraoz | OFFICIAL VIDEO^

Speaking of not working/not eating, that Notre Dame cathedral? I saw that place gets 30,000 visitors per day or 13 million visitors per year. Yeah, 1 building, gets 13 million visitors per year. Think that generates any cashflows?

While entry into the cathedral is free there is a fee to climb the towers (8.50 euro).

Source = Google – 17 April 2019

€8.50 is $9.60. What’s the incentive for climbing the towers, and who is suggesting that you climb them?

Paris Info-Tours de Notre-Dame de Paris

So, there’s much more than just the church and God plugged into this building. The official visitors bureau is suggesting that the 422 steps are more than worth the €8.50 you have to pay to climb them. So if only 25% of the visitors climb the towers, that’s €27,625,000.

But what's this?

Admission to Notre Dame is free, but visitors will need tickets to enter the tower (€8.50) and the crypt (€6). Access to both is included in the price of the Paris Pass.

Source = Google – 17 April 2019

Hrm. Sounds like a money making machine.

^DVBBS & Borgeous – TSUNAMI (Original Mix)^

I wonder if the church takes donations from visitors irrespective of whether or not they pay to ascend the towers and/or descend into the crypt? I tried to do some searching for this, but the press is fucking alive with people pledging millions upon millions to rebuild the cathedral. But as the Richie Riches scramble for attention in the media, I have to wonder, are there any gift shops nearby?

The Best 10 Souvenir Shops near Souvenirs Paris Notre-Dame in Paris

Now, that’s just the “10 Best” according to Yelp, but it looks like there’s one in the main hall of the church itself as well. Or at least, there was a gift shop in the main hall of the church. I wonder where all that money they’ve been making went? Surely at least some of it went into a rainy-day fund of some kind…right? Surely the church can turn down all of these lavish/gaudy donations, and pay to rebuild the church themselves.

^Underworld – Cowgirl^

Just really weird all this talk of starving people, on the same day that I see hundreds of millions of dollars being pledged to rebuild a single church. But to be fair, we’re all jacked-in to The Matrix, and each and every node is important. Right? Pull certain pillars, and the entire structure could fall.

From the ashes.

Something will rise from the ashes.

Or something.

^MC 900 Ft Jesus – The City Sleeps^
All this shopping and ashes nonsense is giving me a headache

That said, what is it like to be…

1. Trapped in time;

2. Surrounded by evil;

3. Low on gas.

Any of that make sense?

Meh fuckit.

^Danny Elfman – March Of The Dead^

Someone mentioned “Mayan Numbers” to me recently, but I didn’t know what they meant.

Now I do

Ever heard of “BCI’s” or heard the term “BCI”?

Brain–Computer Interface

Are acronyms/knowledge of acronyms a good indicator as to what an individual knows/doesn’t know? We’re all of us “plugged in” to The Universe in some way or another. Is adding yet another interface to the existing interface like plugging a power strip into a wall socket? The source remains the same, but you can power more devices. And of course, it’s a larger draw on the source.

Digress

CIA-Library-FOIA

Sure are a lot of people plugged into that particular source. That said, I’m just wondering when you wind up stumbling over yourself. You’re jacked-in, in so many ways, via so many streams, that eventually, you encounter your own self.

COVERT ACTION: SPECIAL REPORT: SEYCHELLES INVASION

Right there, in the very first paragraph…

‘The morality of U.S. foreign policy continues to plummet.’

That’s from 1983. Wouldn’t that mean that U.S. foreign policy morality has been plummeting for 36 years? Assuming that whoever wrote this was correct, and that U.S. foreign policy morality was indeed plummeting in 1983.

Have I lost you? 

Welp, just this morning, I watched a guy on some British news program state that, starting with Africa, world starvation and human extinction is imminent. Since I personally am someone with an interest in time/time(s), I’m wondering on what basis they are establishing a timeline that pinpoints human demise. We’ve not a fucking clue where we came from, nor when, nor how. Just this week, I saw something that science is back on ponds being the original source of life, and not oceans. They’ve wafted back and forth between pond scum and ocean ooze as to which one was the source…

but they've actually no clue

So I’m wondering how it is that this Extinction Rebellion has somehow pinpointed a location on some graph that shows:

A) human extinction is inevitable, and;

B) starvation will be the mode of human extinction.

Individuals go extinct, all day, every day, and no one gives a flying fuck. Wait, what was that musing earlier about individual nodes and their importance?

^Fila Brazillia – Leonids^

You think it possible, that if we know where we came from, and when, we’ll have a better bead on when we are leaving, and how? Makes sense to me because it gives us a base, and most bases in time are a simultaneous kind of thing. If you know the beginning, you’ll know the end, and vice-versa.

But are you sure you want to know such a thing?

If I knew the exact date, place, time, and method of your own demise, would you want me to tell you? More than that, if you knew about someone else’s exact date, place, time, method of demise, are you going to tell them whether they want to know or not? You know, like, for the greater good and all that.

Just wondering what it takes to make like-minded people, into non-likeminded people. Getting like-minded people together seems to be a step in that direction.

Yep, your salvation is your doom. You are in a big fucking hurry…

^Fatboy Slim & Riva Starr Ft. Beardyman – Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat (Lyric Video)^

And one last thing or two here – I don’t think it’s what you don’t know, nor how to find/make distinctions as to what you know/don’t know. To me, that’s kinda what helps us to be the individuals we are. A combination of knowing and non-knowing, all nestled in our own unique environments and circumstance. Take coal for example…

(and not to make diamonds, but rather to burn) 

Different conditions make different kinds of coal that are better/worse for burning. The Titanic was said to have taken on cheap coal because of the coal strikes of the time, and this cheap coal, by causing fires in the coal bunkers, would play a role in weakening the ship’s hull during the disaster.

The assertion being, cheap coal, purchased because there was a coal strike in 1912, and this cheap coal burning in the coal bunker where it was stored, weakened the hull of the ship.

Q: Did you know any of that?

A: ?!¿

I didn’t. But I do now. And now, so do you. What that means to you personally? I’ve not a fucking clue. I know where the information came from, but you don’t. You only know that I’ve passed it along.

^Birat Bitz – Ecstasy (Original Mix)[Bass Zone Music]^

Do you wanna know more?

Do you wanna know less?

Did you want to know any of that?

Do you care about any of that which I just told you?

Can you use any of that to see how finite connections are made in what are likely to be infinite and/or eternal wholes?

At 22:42 into the video below, and going forward to 23:55, you’ll see the bit(s) that references cheap coal, coal strikes, coal bunker fires, and smoking guns.

That said, are you willing to commit to the full 1 hour 29 minutes and 54 seconds to watch the entire video? Commit to putting that bit into a contextual ordering/sequence according to this particular story’s tale? Or do you just need to know that there are in fact different types of coal that come from different environments under different conditions.

This is just me, but that’s one of the things that makes us all unique. We’ve got our bits, we’ve got our roles, and we many times get to decide what those roles are/what parts we play. Not always, but sometimes. Lots of shit came together and came apart, over some pretty long spans of time, in order for us to be talking here and now, about nothing much in particular.

        1. You might try going into your browser’s privacy settings and adding exceptions for those two sites. See if that clears up the issue.

          But to be fair to yourself here, adding exceptions at the browser level just so you can like blog posts or comments is a decision you’ll have to make. It’s kinda nice to get likes and all, but having to circumvent your own browser’s security to do so is…well, I personally think it’s a bit much. If websites and/or advertisers have gotten so invasive that I have to defeat my own security measures? And I mean machine level security measures on my own computer? Not something that I personally want to do, nor would I expect anyone else to do as much for my own benefit. Granted, this is Roob’s blog, so I’m just trying to help out with people doing what they want to do.

          Just saying that getting into the habit of adding exceptions is something you’ll need to manage/be mindful of. Anything happens with the browser, any upgrades, device changes, etc., you’ll have to add all that crap back, and you need to stay on top of being mindful of what should be in the exceptions, and what should not.

          🙂
