And Then, More Chips...

It being Friday an’ all, we had a fish and chip lunch. I opted for the healthy option and included one of my five a day; mushy peas. I also had scraps and for any of you unfamiliar with scraps, they’re the left-over bits o’ batter after deep-frying. I doubt these, as good as they are, can be counted as another one of my five a day.

Anyhoo, shortly after not too long ago, there was a pretend post here regarding us all getting kitted out with micro chips. As if that’s ever going to happen eh? Really, how far ‘out there’ can I go?

With that in mind, you can imagine my surprise this morning when I turned on the radio while waiting for the coffee to cook and tuned into the Today program on the BBC - yeah, I know, but an early morning blood boil gets my circulation going for the day – to catch some dame recounting her experiences living with a ‘biohacking implant’ she’s had glued into her hand.  Say what now? You believe that? Maybe the Foggy Mirror ain’t that foggy after all.

Assuming you didn’t catch it, Have a listen here; slide along ‘till you see something close to 1:44:26 in the little ‘follow along’ window. Ensure you’re seated.

After listening to that, thought I to myself, me being all alone and by myself at the time, I’ll Google ‘biohacking’ and was amazed{?} at the number of results. Here’s the only link I clicked.

Seems the future isn’t catching up with us at all; it’s actually overtaking us and it’s kind o’ scary. Wot comes next? Be afraid. Be very afraid.

By-the-by, if you’re staying in this evening and have an abundance of tin-foil to hand, type this into that Google finding stuff thingy; ‘YouTube; Flat earth’.   Bu-by.

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organised habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”
