It’s Tuesday Jan 17. I had to take my car for an inspection this morning. The brakes need replacing, but this is unsurprising. There is supposed to be a sensor that tells you when they are getting low, but that clearly hasn’t worked since I’ve owned the thing. When I bought this vehicle the brakes had just been done, and it’s been at least five years or more since they were replaced. They’ve lasted an awfully long time. I have to take it back next week so they can fix them. That’s been the excitement of the day so far. I was watching the BBC this morning and they were having a celebration of when the first breakfast program started back in 1983. In 1983? It was like they were talking about 1953. I have no idea what used to be on the BBC in the mornings prior to that. I guess it was cheese and snow, who knows? They were all excited about it though.
While I was at the auto mechanics, they were talking about Florida. Everyone wants to go to Florida permanently at this time of the year, it seems like it would be nice. You can get cheap flights if you don’t get any extras like choosing a seat or taking a bag. Some airlines (all) nickel and dime you all the way there and back now. You want a window seat? That’ll be $25 thanks. It’s bullshit. I used to like flying and I still do. I just hate the fucking airport.
Over at the World Economic Forum they were talking about “How to master the future”. Indeed, if you weren’t fucking up the present, you clowns might have a point, but you don’t. The European Union has just legislated that insects can be added to food products.* You think you’re not going to eat the bugs? Yes, you are. I can’t wait to read the list of ingredients on the the next thing I buy that’s manufactured in Europe. Not that I indulge in anything from there much at all. I used to order Eccles cakes from the UK, which isn’t Europe any more anyway, but they got too expensive because of the fake pandemic. I don’t buy much imported stuff now, it’s cost prohibitive. I like Russian beer sometimes, but I doubt that it’s in the store anymore. Russia = bad, and all that. It’s a joke, but now we are getting a glimpse of what World War Two must have been like. Germans = bad, etc etc. It’s easier now to spot the propaganda although many people will never see it ever.
They’ll never see the real reasons behind these conflicts either. As Elon Musk said on Twitter yesterday, “There should be a game show. Who said it, 4chan or the WEF?”
I know it’s an obscure reference, but you’re smart. You can figure it out, I’m sure.
