And Then, Guess Wot...

   Further to the last post, okay, it wasn’t the last post in those terms, it was the last entry I posted regards co-co and climate. You see the latest utterings from our tussle haired leader? Basically, lets get colder quicker. And eat vegan. No idea wot a vegan is as I’ve never seen any vegan cuts in the butchers round here where I be biding.
   This further goes to make me believe that all the co-co regulations and restrictions where just to test just how far they could go without any serious fight back. Man, we’ve become malleable in the extreme have we not?  We’re more than ready for swinging climate restrictions. In fact, soon after the start, the vast majority, ably aided by the MSM, will be screeching for ever harder and tougher restrictions. And let’s not think about wot the chemi cocktail could be all about.
   Let’s see how these children screaming for this cope, in the near future, with intermittent electrickery meaning  none to unwatchable TV, unable to charge that pricy lecky car or bike, no central heating, none to unusable Interweb for information, can’t get in the local reference library owing to co-co limits and, horror of horrors, unable to charge their smartphones. Us old folk? Been there; still got the books...
   In other ‘news’, I see the government has sprung into action immediately  regards some footy announcement. Let’s hope they spring into equally speedy action regards the illegal gimmigrants flooding the country. Pardon? Wot’s that you say? That’s been going on, daily, for how many years now? Oh. Anyhoo, cut quickly back to the footy... and climate.

“They keep saying that sea levels are rising an' all this. It's nowt to do with the icebergs melting, it's because there's too many fish in it. Get rid of some of the fish and the water will drop. Simple. Basic science.”

And Then, Climate Incoming...

   I see the media are gearing-up for the next scare thingy as the climate is starting to creep back towards the top ‘news’ item.
   Wot did we have today? Some story about an iceberg breaking in half and some fellow going by the unlikely name,
John Curry declaring that we’re ‘moments’ away from being ‘beyond catastrophic’ with temperatures set to rise by four degrees.
   Bring it on I say as round here, where I be, a four degree rise right now would get the early morning temperature up to one or two degrees above freezing and that would go a small way to making it feel a tad more spring like...       
   You think this is wot the pandemidodad has all been about? Just a trial to see how far us lot down here can be led, directed, told wot to do, wot we’ll accept as a given without question and how easy it could be to silence any and all dissent ready for the great climate emergency restrictions?
   If so, I’d suggest it’s been a stunning success beyond their wildest dreams  and I’d also bet that the restrictions and lockdowns of the past year, after a few months of savage save the world restrictions, will be looked back on with sad longing like the wonderous times of, like, freedom.
   In other news I see the NHS, blessed be its name, is way behind on various treatments. Hay, you can’t produce all they Look-At-Media offerings and be expected to be looking after sick folk as well, now can you? Anyhoo, the government are going to throw yet another shed load of lolly at em; that would be us then. Going by the amounts mentioned that’s a huge number of new Diversity and Inclusion managers to be hired right there.

Quote;  H.L. Mencken.

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed — and hence clamorous to be led to safety — by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”

“The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false face for the urge to rule it.”

And Then, It’s Done...

   Man that took a bunch of hours to ‘update’ Billy Ten. Guess wot? Once it was running I was amazed to find my privacy settings were untouched so the mothership hadn’t re-established communications with me. Wot a shocker! 
   Second rattle out of the box, I checked for updates to Windows Defender and guess wot again? Another slew of updates, patches and fixes for Billy Ten. Another couple of hours downloading and installing.
   Worth thinking about is this; Billy would have us believe he has the answer to controlling the suns output to ‘save the world’ and he knows all there is regards the need to vaccinate the worlds entire population but the same Billy can’t produce a bit o’ code to run a computer without almost continuous repair patches. Doesn’t bode well for when he starts messing with the sun and/or poking the worlds population do it?
   Imagine if Billy produced book shelving, sold and shipped ‘em and then had to recall all sales so’s to have shelves installed...
   Below is something close to wot I imagine software producers meetings to be like. Okay, possibly not as straightforward as wot’s below...
