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…

…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.

^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.

*Whoa, that’s fucking syncy, Clicky… /pats snout… I’ve been saving Cade’s missive to post today, butt we only remote viewed that movie together last night…*

Missive From ‘Merica: Split Peas Oops (Part 2)

LAST TIME

Something strange happened late last night, Dear Reader. I was scrolling through my YT history, to find something I knew I’d seen, and saw something I’d never seen. A video. This video…

From it’s placement above another video. This video…

… And below this video…

… I’d managed to watch something I have never, ever watched – until I watched it whilst scrolling through my YT history late last night –  sometime yesterday daytime. How on earth did I manage to do that?

Anyhoo, hears Part 2 of Cade’s mighty missive that I was remiss in not posting last week. Enjoy! ❤

Did you know that there was a 1.5bn dollar lottery back in October, and the winner just finally came forward to claim the prize?

They were cutting it close

I think you have to claim the prize within like 120 days of the drawing, otherwise, the money gets folded back into the jackpot pool. But can you imagine what it would be like to have someone drop $1,500,000,000 into your lap? That $300,000 house around the corner that you’ve been eyeballing is suddenly possible, but you’ll never buy it. Not now anyway. I mean fuck, the Côte d’Azur is now a possibility.

Financially anyway

Dunno how open the residents of the French Riviera are to South Carolina natives invading their turf, even if they are loaded. Which speaking of, I watched a movie with a certain someone the other day, called ‘Rush’.

Rush (2013 Film)

The movie was pretty good, and I knew the name Niki Lauda from my childhood, but I’d never seen the flick. Anyway, in a lot of the footage in the film, I recognized many of the tracks. God only knows how many laps I’ve done on those tracks myself. What? You don’t believe me?

Well, I have

Gran Turismo (Series)

GT2

GT3

^Speedway (Theme From Fastlane) (Remastered)^

When Lauda got burned in the flick, all I could think about was…

Cale Yarborough

Cale Yarborough

I remember watching a race on TV when I was a kid. They showed one of the racers in the pits without his helmet, and the guy didn’t have an ear. Just a nub kinda thing that looked like a shrunken cauliflower ear, and I coulda swore that it was Cale Yarborough.

I was a kid, and it shocked the shit out of me because there were other obvious burn types of scarring, so I asked my dad, who was watching the race with me. I recall him telling me…

“Yeah, he was burned pretty bad in a crash and lost most of his ear.”

Yikes

Now, I was no stranger to crashes nor injuries because I’d been around racing since I was born. I think I recall reading in a Hot Rod Magazine article that “Big Daddy” Don Garlits had lost most or all of his toes on one foot in an accident.

Don Garlits

“Big Daddy” Don Garlits Restores Swamp Rat 13, the Dragster That Almost Killed Him

But this was a burn. A burn that resulted in a “disfigurement” that I only previously was unaware as being possible. Not that I was unfamiliar with damn near having my ear ripped off by an angry adult, nor am I any stranger to burns either, but seeing Lauda’s ear in the movie brought back memories of seeing that race as a kid and the image of some dude with his ear burned off.

I don’t know why I always associated that ear with Cale Yarborough. I have no idea if Yarborough ever lost an ear. Maybe it was Lauda, but why would I be associating a NASCAR driver with an F1 driver’s injury? God only knows how much racing I consumed as a kid via magazines, TV, and being at the track every Friday night, Saturday night, and sometimes Sunday afternoons. But what in the fuck would Niki Lauda be doing at a stock car race sometime in the 1970s? Andretti is the only F1 driver I know of that ever was around stock cars until recent times.

‘Immortalised in Churchill’s often quoted assertion that never before “”was so much owed by so many to so few””, the top-down narrative of the Battle of Britain has been firmly established in British legend. Britain was saved from German invasion by the gallant band of Fighter Command Pilots in their Spitfires and Hurricanes, and the public owed them their freedom. Richard North’s radical re-evaluation of the Battle of Britain dismantles this mythical retelling of events. Taking a wider perspective than the much-discussed air war, North takes a fresh look at the conflict as a whole to show that the civilian experience, far from being separate and distinct, was integral to the Battle. This recovery of the people’s stolen history demonstrates that Hitler’s aim was not the military conquest of England, and that his unattained target was the hearts and minds of British people.’

Diamonds come from coal, as you’re fond of saying, but so does black goo, the sort created in a scientific accident, whilst looking for some other holy grail. And it not only revolutionize an industry, it made the wearing an expensive colour more affordable. And so accessible, with all the symbolism and meaning it attracts.

Anyway I’ll save all that for the post 😀

And here we are 😀 Now, Dear Reader, you may or may not know of about the significance of the colour purple to me. It was the triple appearance/sync of ‘Purple People Eater’, something that I’d never even heard off before that Sunday in October 2012, that set me on my current crazy path.

Ever heard of ClearType?

ClearType

I mentioned this to someone last night, and it got me to thinking about eye-strain and/or difficulty reading screen fonts on a computer monitor. Me being me, I began thinking about my own settings on my own computer, remembered that this is NOT my computer, then went in to check my own settings.

ClearType, was off 😐

It’s on now tho. The screen fonts look COMPLETELY different. Instead of blocky and chunky fonts with ragged edges, my screen fonts are now soft and smooth and MUCH easier to read. Granted, this computer setting makes the color(s) of screen fronts a shade more “fuzzy” and less distinct, but it also adds an element that makes what’s on-screen, a shade easier to read. Looks much more like what you would see on a printed page instead of the pixelated sharp edges that are sometimes present on computer fonts.

^WHERE’S THE MONEY LEBOWSKI^

While looking for 18th century folk music, I found this…

18th Century Songbook Introduction

That first bit has me brain to thinking a bit.

“If you are unfamiliar with 18th century print, you may want to educate yourself about the usage of the so-called “long s” or “medial s”, which causes a lot of people to wonder why printers in the 18th century used an “f” where they should’ve used an “s”. The simple fact is, they didn’t – that thing that looks like an “f” is, in fact, an “s”.”

If you haven’t noticed, I don’t like quoting text from other websites. I’ve no problem stealing images and music, but stealing text is where I draw the line. I figure if you want to read about it, you will. If you don’t, no problem. If I parse the fuck out of someone else’s work, and post large blocks of it here, just to make a point of my own, I’ve likely no point of my own to make, and am just chiming in my endorsement of what someone else has said.

Not knocking people that do this, because that’s how we learn. There are FUCKTONS of standards and principles to stand upon, and we need those things. But at the same time, I think not formulating our own opinions in our own times about these principles, actually has the effect of making them less principled. I’m not endorsing sin, nor disorder and chaos, nor lascivious riotous rampages. Just making an observation that when a certain something, gains a certain weight and momentum, irrespective of what it is, it’s likely going to create sinful chaotic disorder and lascivious riotous rampages.

Doesn't matter what it is.

The more dense the hammer, the more “work” gets done.

Ever heard of a non-sparking hammer?

OSH Answers Fact Sheets

My dad had a coupla small brass anvils that he used for machining and molding certain metal parts. But brass is expensive as fuck, so, when I was in high school, I took a metals-shop class, and made him an aluminum ball peen hammer on the lathe in class. I fucked the handle part up, which was also aluminum, and had to cut it off real short. Aluminum is also expensive as fuck, so I couldn’t afford to buy another piece of aluminum stock to make another one.

So…pop got what was likely the shortest aluminum ball peen hammer ever, hand-made by the biggest fuckup ever who should likely never be allowed within a coupla-zip codes of tools of any kind.

Anyway, the hammer was aluminum, so it was light as FUCK. It was almost like you were not holding anything when holding that hammer. I checked several times as to whether he had ever used it, and he said he did, but I don’t think he did. To his credit, I did notice that he sometimes carried it in his tool bag.

An ignition source,

A fireplace,

A house to put it in,

A wife to put in the house,

Kids to buy shit for,

An education and/or certification(s),

A job to give me money,

A car to get to the job and store,

Insurance to pay for what is assumed to be incompetence and/or negligence on someone’s part,

So yeah. There are “principles” fucking everywhere.

Or has it gotten…muddy. What am I talking about?

Well...language silly.

I’ve been noticing some clever techniques utilized by rippers, in order to upload copyrighted movies/video to YouTube. It appears that some are adding shadow movies to the rips in order to better disguise the digital contents of film/video. Like, they’ll rip one movie, then remove virtually all contrast from it to where shadows are barely visible, and then, rip the other movie and layer them into a single video. They may even be layering the same video rip, but they have two video streams that are out of synch.

I dunno. I just know that it was kinda creepy watching two movies at the same time, especially when you don’t know what that second movie is.

It got me to thinking about…

yep...

subliminal messages/subliminal messaging.

I’ve thought a lot about throughput within the human body, and in and around our environment of current times. We seem to make certain distinctions that the Earth/Terra itself is old as fuck, while everything else is new and modern and advanced…civilization. If that’s true, that leads me only to time…and stepping.

But I'll get back to that later.

What really caught my attention, was foley. The BBC is famous for their…erm…”liberal use” of sound effects and music. Especially in their documentaries. The appearance of music, and the timing of the appearance, the tempo, the type, the timbre…it’s all there to provoke an emotional response. To tell you how to feel. To tell you that if you aren’t feeling something, you should be. If you are feeling something, but aren’t feeling “this way”, you should be.

Let's be fair tho. Let's flip that script.

What if, the author(s) of said documentary/documentaries are simply telling you how they felt when writing and making this flick? It is their flick afterall. Nothing is requiring you to watch it. If they have some information that you need or want, and this is the only source, and if you don’t like the packaging, welp, that’s just too fucking bad for you…eh? They did all the legwork, they paid all the bills that came due before you showed up, therefore, they are the well…right?

Would you like one scoop, or two, with your reality dose?

It’s going to be both. The tides of information are always there. Sometimes a raging torrent of crashing waves, sometimes a mill-pond with a sheen of glass. Waters are always disturbing…even when undisturbed.

I just can’t buy that there is a “one-size-fits-all” morning water intake that cures all of those diseases for every person. Not to mention, I’m pretty sure that I only have 2 of the diseases listed, and both of those are supposedly hereditary…Asthma, Allergies, even tho they didn’t specifically mention allergies.

Not saying that drinking water after waking isn’t a shocker on the system, because it is. If I drink water after waking from sleep, my body goes into motherfucking convulsions. But we aren’t talking about me here, we’re talking standards. We’re talking base(s) and basis. We’re talking principles.

Great Fire of London

I mean…parents…are you really that stupid? Or is it that we are electing a bunch of unsure self-debasers into positions of power so that they can self-flagellate their own personal guilt(s), shame(s) and failure(s) via shitty legislation. Who are these people who volunteer to put themselves into these positions where they can do no right…only wrong? It’s just a matter of who, and when, as to who is booing you, and who is cheering you.

Great Fire of 1910

Seems to me, that booing and/or cheering might be the problem. Or at least, “a” problem. You yell and bitch to them when they don’t show up, then you yell and bitch at them when they do show up. Where is it that we’ve all this free time to scream or cheer?

Shouldn't you be at work or doing something productive/constructive? 

Weird seeing that contruction seems to sometimes be a factor in destruction.

K…so, got to watching this documentary last night, and it got me to thinking about a lot of things. Ancient maps that accurately depict Antarctica “long before it’s discovery” is one of the things I got to thinking about. But I’m gonna digress here and take another tack.

After the doc, I stumbled over to a certain somewhere, and noticed a certain someone(s) had made some comments to another certain someone’s comments. A la, me, Roob, and Clicky.

Digress-ish.

I’ve been trying to get over to Hugo’s Probe and read his latest, but I’ve not read the one before that either, so, yeah…I’m all fucked up. Let’s seek center.

Digrestless.

Anyway, tunneling. Outside, inside and through. Barriers and shielding(s) that are as much a part of the conduit as anything else. I mean, a cable has a purpose…right? Keep shit out, keep shit in, and once our cabling we are creating does that, the cable itself becomes a whole that is wholly irrelevant, save for the “in” and “out” ends.

Now all we need to do, is plug something into something else via this conduit, and the conduit will play it’s part.

Q: How is this relevant with say…radio and broadcast television? What about…windmills?

A: ...

How could this POSSIBLY relate to mangroves and water(s) and water bears and aerobic bacteria that tunnel for their oxygen when no oxygen is present?

Welp, spin. Oh, and time(s). Three of them actually. Three times that are embedded in one. And that one time is part of the makeup of a time that is further nested in and with three other times.

So…4 times, which contains 1 time that contains 3.

HeightTime + WidthTime + DepthTime + TimeTime = Time

Each axis has two bases, moving and non-moving, and each of those correlate with the other two axes.

Juggling axes. We must be talking time and/or time and matter. Energy/energies must be in there somewhere too.

The deep end…I’ve gone off it.

^Sodom And Gomorrah (Biblical Archaeology Documentary) | Timeline^

We’ve got anger. We need somewhere to put that anger. I’m your man.

Or at least, I certainly can be.

Um…anyone have a label for that? Some kind of social defect or mental illness or personality flaw or spiritual/moral deviance or psychic disability? Maybe all of those?

If you know of any of those nasty associations that are applicable to me, please feel free to label me as such, and then let me know what those are via either direct or indirect means…whatever you think best.

I might need to seek professional help after you’ve finished with me.

Did you know, that on September 10th/11th, of 2000, there was a meeting of The Royal Society to discuss the possible man-made origins of HIV/AIDS? Welp, there was. For the first time ever, an outsider was let in.

Oh…Viol. Not, Viola de Gamba? Maybe it’s both. Prolly considerations to be made there with respect to contextual social situations. I mean, if you are an American, and you are in Germany, you don’t call shit shit. Contextually, it’s called…scheiße.

I’m writing this whatever in OpenOffice’s Writer application. This will be my/our 100th. I still get a shade lost in this editor since I’ve only started using it. Don’t really need any of the formatting tools for these things, since it seems that the uglier the formatting that I send to Roob, the prettier she makes it.

Woman's touch I guess. 

Anyway, today in America, is a day that was originally set aside to mark President George Washington’s birthday. Abraham Lincoln’s birthday is also in February on the 12th, so when I was a kid, we always looked forward to February because there was all kinds of shit going on.

November and December were madness in our family because of all the holidays and birthdays jammed in there, but after January 1st? There was a long winter dry-spell of not much of anything at all until Groundhog Day. Groundhog Day meant a countdown to Valentine’s Day, but it also meant Lincoln and Washington’s birthdays, as well as a mention to the Chinese Lunar New Year.

It is the purpose of school to teach. To omit and streamline is to limit. To create limits in schools is to teach limits. To teach limits is to test limits and limitations. To test limits and limitations is to filter. To get the cream to rise, which then itself can then be separated.

Sounds like a volcano.

My country…I love it. Sometimes, I even like it. But if you personally want everyone to agree with you, what’s with all the yelling? Doesn’t sound like you are looking for anything ‘cept a fight.

Chickpeas A Chance

A tweet caught my attention this morning, Dear Reader…

Ninamoose101 is feeling sad and depressed

I’m not that keen on the VEG(etari)AN movement. I don’t trust it’s zealotry and I certainly don’t trust it’s sponsors

…Butt, as I’d mentioned last weekend, The Secret Sun site has been busy cataloging the current de-luge of Vega/Vegas/Vegan media messaging…

*That’s a concise little video, Clicky… /lights up… Thanks for pulling it out… /drags… I’d only heard of Jeff Buckley for the first time in the Blue universe… *

…I was intrigued to what they were up to now, so I decided to go and have a look at the “so sad and utterly depressing” article for myself…

Metro Vegan Rubies

*/smirks… I doo like to catch a Roobee reference, Click… /snorts smoke…*

‘My current favourite dinner item is Iceland’s hash brown fries (seriously, try them), dipped in mayo (I never said I was classy).

‘Now, I’ve got two ride or die vegan mayos – Plamil’s garlic mayo, and Vegenaise (only if it’s on offer, because it’s hella expensive) but my eye wandered today when I discovered that there’s a new mayo in town.

‘And it’s made from waste water from the hummus industry.

‘Yup, Rubies in the Rubble mayo is made using aquafaba – the water drained from tins of chickpeas and other legumes. It translates from Latin as ‘bean water’.’

*Mmm… I like hummus, Clicky… /taps ash… And I like mayo… /puffs… especially with ham… /smacks lips…*

*/deep drag… Way to kill the messenger eh, Clicky? …/fiddles with lighter… *

… I confess, Dear Reader, when I read ‘chickpea’ in the article, Cicero sprang to mind…

Cicero’s cognomen, or personal surname, comes from the Latin for chickpeacicer. Plutarch explains that the name was originally given to one of Cicero’s ancestors who had a cleft in the tip of his nose resembling a chickpea. However, it is more likely that Cicero’s ancestors prospered through the cultivation and sale of chickpeas. Romans often chose down-to-earth personal surnames. The famous family names of Fabius, Lentulus, and Piso come from the Latin names of beans, lentils, and peas, respectively.’

… Roman Beans, Lentils and Peas, all vegan staples, but what is ‘aquafaba’? Back to the offending article…

”Of course, using aquafaba to make mayo isn’t new – the aforementioned vegan mayos use aquafaba from soy beans – but Rubies’ aquafaba is a byproduct of the hummus industry.

‘‘We were inspired to get back into the kitchen after we saw a vegan foodie blogger was making gorgeous looking meringue with aquafaba, saying it performed just like egg whites,’ says Rubies co-founder, Jenny Costa.’

*You just had to bring it back to physics, Clicky… /rolls eyes… *

Rubble scratch

*Yeah… /pats snout… I don’t understand it either… /final drag… Shall we wrap this one up?*

Hold Your Horses

*What?… /stubs butt…*

chickpea crisis

*Oh fuck! Well that’s even more of a reason for hummus producers to sell their been water to the vegans… Waste not, want knot…*

Apparently, we are in the midst of a great ‘Chickpea Crisis‘, Dear Reader…

Scooby snigger

*I know! Shh…*

‘The price of popular brand Me Too! has gone up by 12p for a 250g pot and 19p for a 500g pot. But the makers say the price rises have been down to the supermarkets.’

Whoa! Brand #metoo is getting kinda pricey. I think we need a Song 😉
