Small Bites: 300 - 399

300. Defer a proportion of mortgage. Interest is still payable and continues to mount with interest.

301. The massaging of
CO2 allowances by trade of permits completely and cynically misses the point. Industries and methods that create vast quantities of this gas (notwithstanding methane or nitrous oxide) should die. Deferring the issue is not a solution unless used as a time buffer to create alternatives. Carbon capture in rock has a definite limit, but reduction of these quantities can be the only potential solution. If none is produced there is no increase in an ongoing problem.

302. Climate change approach: classic case of tinkering with the symptoms an avoiding the cause. Never will a solution be found that ignores the problem. Assuming it is a real problem.

303. Natural selection theory demands that survival requires adaptation to conditions. Failure to adapt leads to extinction. The human body must adapt to diabetes issues without the support of insulin derivatives produced elsewhere. Otherwise the problem is attacked not by cure, but deferment. The human population grows and is artificially kept alive. It will not adapt and will always be a subject of control. If insulin were to become scarce, many would quickly succumb. Any population group that has a reliance on any drug or chemical entity for survival creates a
totally dependent group.

Diabetes Type 2 is essentially an acquired condition as the product of lifestyle. It is correctable by a change in that lifestyle. Type 1 is genetically inherited and there is no correction that can be made other than insulin by injection.

304. A pesticide ban will promote insect damage to crops. The
GM product will survive. It's in the plan.

'Underwritten by the taxpayer': euphemistic term for the taxpayer 'promises to pay'. Nothing more, nothing less (maybe!).

306. Share value reflects
virtual money. Up/down.

307. Share value in banks fall and get bought for a song and it's all in
The Plan.

308. Get people back into work? The only reason is that tax becomes payable rather than doling out benefits. Those who work are less likely to be swayed by the payment of

309. Another major reason for
encouraging the large population (silence to curb the population infers an active encouragement) is that there is then a huge audience to buy media services. But this static audience produces nothing and only consumes.

310. The cynical attitude to lending? Lend more to 'create' more interest and screw the people. 'Lend' the banks taxpayers' money to lend back to the taxpayer (the provider) his own money, but with
added interest.

311. A common and predictable approach is saying that which is perceived as being what (some) people want to hear and then state that it'll
'not happen overnight'. It's typical.

312. If an argument has validity then there
cannot be any financial attachment. To expect payment subverts that validity.

Metropolitan police commissioner is another 'Sir'. Just a politician in uniform producing no confidence, just providing the service that the government requires. Outcomes are predictable. The investigation of 'law amendments for cash' will not happen.

Who are they?

314. A comment that complains about the disgrace of insufficient grit and sand supplies making roads dangerous. Drivers will have to... (wait for it) slower

Such pathetic and idiotic logic. It is
dangerous to drive fast in icy conditions, with or without the crutch of grit and salt. Even a brain-dead moron should be able to work out this simple fact. The cocoon effect of being inside a warm environment renders awareness redundant. A temperature gauge may display zero (or less) degrees. Water freezes at this temperature and a little salt lowers the freezing point. But only by a very small amount to prevent freezing.

315. Redefining terms:
bonus. The term bonus used to mean that providing extra service is rewarded. Failure is rewarded by sacking or minimally 0%. This in an extra provision above the salaried expectation. That a banker should receive 200% the value of his salary is grotesquely obscene (salary = £1.3m, bonus = £2.6m). Employees are losing their jobs for doing their job when the boss fails to do his own and is rewarded for failure. Words cannot adequately describe this obscenity. And paid out of taxpayer loans. Brown is doing a great job looking after his mates and screwing the country. The descent of the country into the pit is well on course.

316. Experts are needed in the financial industry (allegedly) so payment of good salaries are necessary to retain these individuals to ensure they 'do not go abroad'.
Good salaries do not imply anything about good bonus. These bankers cannot be such 'experts' if the disaster they've created is typical and they should be sacked with the termination of contract. How can a contract be written including a failsafe clause for the banker. Other than by a complete imbecile, of course. Golden welcome packages handcuffs the 'bank' (or any employer). The contract presumably avoids any clause that expects any obligation to actually be fulfilled. No one is that good.


Fail and be rerwarded. Succeed and be rewarded. All the people who are stepped on to ensure this obscenity simply lose their jobs to
help pay for it. The bonus rewards only the able and successful. The failures will then be identified unless some other sinister activity is taking place.

317. Clarkson's comment about Gordon Brown. The
mistake could possibly have been in referring to him as being visually challenged. That's all, maybe.

Clarkson, Jeremy and Brown, Gordon

Fred The Shred seemed to use HBOS very much like his own private bank. Anything that affects share value is, of course, a good thing and a long term view would be considered to reflect any ultimate pension entitlement. Getting rid of dead wood is a long-term-favourable. But trashing and asset stripping loses the good wood as well. Sitting on a branch and sawing it off from the trunk is not a good move. As the branch plummets, an opening parachute makes for a comfortable descent. One branch survives even if the tree dies.

319. Any search for life seems to get excited about fundamental things like microbes. This is looking in the wrong direction and quite bizarre since microbes are far removed from (most) human life. Hundreds of millions of years ago, the primordial soup was proposed to have consisted of microbes from which crawled early life evolving into present-day creatures. That something like this exists on Mars or some other non-terrestrial location is very interesting, but such information goes nowhere. If a more complex form of life eventually did evolve in these locations, it would be hundreds of millions of years behind any Earth-life (theoretically). But it’s academic and otherwise quite irrelevant. Somewhere in the solar system, or an on an exo-planet, life logically must exist. More primitive or more complex, perhaps, but elsewhere and not simply a microbe.

Obesity and diabetes type-2: the cull of mankind is well under way.

321. To deny information for the reason that it is not in the public interest, yet to be in possession of that information is a euphemism for just withholding that information. Clearly, this is denial by convenience. If it’s not the public interest then it’s likely to be the national security card that gets played. A catch-all get-out.

322. Why not print
£100s bns? More of the same - Obama. A $trillion dollars of virtual money buys loads of control. In reality, it doesn't exist, but generates absolute control.

'Killed in action' = murdered through conflict.

324. It's standard politico-speak that only after things go wrong that
change must happen. Not that change must happen to prevent error. Perfect pro-active hindsight. The same ethic that things will get better. Always in the future. The confident tone convinces the deluded, those working completely and solely with faith by itself. The effects of the past after they have been allowed to happen will be changed in the future?

Ridiculous fantasy

Goldfinger: the plot was to contaminate the gold with radioactivity since it cannot be destroyed and so render it useless. Not to steal it. Great idea. Ian Fleming understood how financial systems are designed.

326. Diet misinformation: poor eating and wasting away results in losing 'weight'. This produces the ideal weight corpse.

327. Massive 'discounts' on purchase price never reduces the sale price to the manufacturer. The cost 'reduction' has been laid off somewhere as the original cost remains the same and has just been disguised. Who would imagine that
£1000s could actually be taken off the cost?

328. Privatise the
Royal Mail and nationalise the banks. Lucrative traffic will go private while the other will be serviced by the taxpayer. This is the loan the taxpayer will always receive and without even being asked. It’s essentially the same mechanism that provided toxic loans, dumping the debt. The same mechanism that provided those £bns of virtual money to prop up the already collapsed and terminally toxic (to the taxpayer) financial system.

329. Banks don't want any interference from the
OFT about the level of outrageous charging for unauthorised overdrafts. But it is a way of boosting the banks' funds. Rather like it was no regulation in any banking business (Chancellor of the Exchequer Brown's idea) that led to the ultimate financial meltdown. It was inevitable and to suggest that the recession/depression was totally unexpected is clouded thinking. Talk about recovery is deluded and actually very negative and dangerous thinking. Much like 'recovering' from bypass surgery. It's never the same afterwards as the new 'norm' prevails. The old (rotten) standard is quickly forgotten as things 'get better', but always in the impossibly-untested future.

330. How does the Financial Services Authority justify an internal bonus? This is suggestive of working in collusion with the financial sector.
Financial-Services Authority describes nothing created, but does implies servicing by oiling the wheels of the system.

Jack Straw and Freedom of Information Act. Culpable parties will be long dead decades into the future. Too late to react and the timing could conveniently protect the guilty. That’s possibly how it’s been designed.

Caesarian section by choice: crazy to elect for slicing through the abdomen. If a risk-to-benefit suggests survival chances may be improved (ie the alternative is probable death) do it, but only through absolute necessity.

333. What are the ramifications of DNA and the potential for planting evidence or more seriously altering the actual code in the sample? There's more to it than just the individual sample being kept for possible future reference. Alteration by splicing, insertion, substitution and any other process can take place out of the eye of public scrutiny. The scope for massaging the human genome collectively and 'tinkering' with the human race makes
Mengele appear a true beginner by today's (poor) understanding of the possibilities. The (assumed) naïvety of some scientists and the absolute belief that all are full of probity and integrity is incredibly dangerous - for humanity. Look to the military hijack of any idea turned to death and destruction, which could have been put to use to benefit the people. Not the warmongers who want only dominance. The dominant are themselves controlled, but do not think like that. Deluded only to later be betrayed. Once Oppenheimer had developed the atomic bomb, it could not be 'uninvented'. The genie had escaped and Pandora's Box had been opened.

334. Success is still seen as one who
'makes' the most money. This equates to who creates the greatest misery. Those total failures as members of the human race. That special club with old (and very dead) members like Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot. The absolute terror of not being wealthy (probably) drives people like Goodwin. Not born to money, but a taste for it was, presumably, acquired. The survival of the one is well worth the sacrifice of 20m or 30m. Such is the size of an ego. So afraid of suffering poverty, but happy to condemn millions to it.

335. America as peacemaker ironically invades and attacks other countries where European countries defend?

336. Ensure the financial
'crash' spreads around the globe, dragging down other economies. Infection.

337. The
International Space Station serves no purpose other than to perpetuate and justify the hugely expensive and very military Space Shuttle.

'Nature' is nothing but an attempt at a statistical description solution to a problem and 'natural selection' describes just a series of events relating to that solution.

£75bn of new money created to encourage lending that creates virtual money. Madness (by design?). Low interest means that banks use savers' money 'on the cheap' by not paying much for using it. Why are the banks not lending? There is no actual money. It's all virtual money. How does buying corporate debt work? The system is debt-based and relies on the virtual money through interest to grow, but paradoxically yields nothing except subjugation by stranglehold and total compliance. Falling foul of the obnoxious ethos creates criminals out of otherwise genuinely decent and law-abiding 'citizens'.


340. Cricket is itself irrelevant. It is the symbol and selecting it to strike at the heart of a culture. Not playing to the symptoms.

341. Alcohol (ethanol) is
incredibly cheap to produce. It is regarded as a loss leader in supermarkets, but is not particularly expensive. It is probably a profit winner as it costs so little. It's very cynical, but this is business, after all. Most of the cost is the duty revenue simply passed on to the government and costs the retailer nothing.

342. '
Climate change' is not being taken seriously. Still. There's too much money at stake built into the hijacked concept. Potentially £$100s trillions. And no end. There never will be since it's too lucrative as a concept. Sucker punched.

343. What is the difference between being
morally and legally right? A case against an individual for slander could be successful, even if the moral argument were to be easily won. Being economical with the truth is not necessarily the same as being a liar by simply withholding something pertinent. Consider the example of cholesterol levels and possible inappropriate medication: Low Density Lipoproteins (LDLs) and High Density Lipoproteins (HDLs). Overall cholesterol may be fairly high, but if the LDLs ('good cholesterol') is in a higher proportion to the HDLs ('bad cholesterol') then such a raised level may not be as potentially dangerous as a higher ratio of HDLs:LDLs, but an overall low value. The cholesterol profile will determine a more accurate picture.

344. A study reveals that those who make friends easier eventually have jobs with better pay, apparently. Around
2% more financial reward per friend by age 35. Anything to do with sucking up to the boss?

'Suddenly' taking everybody by surprise, the financial 'crisis' has been described as unpredictable in the economic downturn (recession) as $£bns or $£trns are pushed into the global populations' conscious mind. It's been coming for decades and not for the first time. Now has been selected as the time to unleash the consequences onto the public paymaster to re-balance the books, but in the process blame everybody else except the banks for creating the problem. The responsibility for the disaster lies with those who shoulder the blame.

There is no money, but the concept is control and there's loads of potential for that. So many desperate and wrecked lives though also a lot less in number gaining huge benefit.
Parasite/host syndrome. It's all in The Plan for an essentially bloodless coup. The result is a massive global population that is more easily controlled. Increased population requires more crushing measures. Interestingly, societies with surveillance are those with the worst economies.

Good standards of living?
Depression and recession?
Never had it so good?

truth is staring you in the face if you open your eyes:

It's all a lie!

It's total denial to ignore what is happening. There's not any money, only the underpinning resource of gold that must always have worth as it cannot be destroyed, but possibly contaminated by radioactivity
(Goldfinger). Remove a part of the resource and the value of what remains increases. Simple.

346. On the one hand a respected study strongly suggests the
UQ (aka UK) Ltd is heading towards bankruptcy. On the other, Obama and Brown join forces (collude) to attempt selling the idea that if they stay on course together and other governments do likewise, everything will be OK. The global economies exists on vapour and committing more with more mirrors makes the illusion and trick easier to conceal.

347. It has become so pitifully and pathetically rolled out as a repeated message when the covers are unfurled:
"In the future changes will be made." This fails to acknowledge the existence of any problem up to that point. The previous set of failings being in the past had it's future which is the present.

Nothing changes and all is ignored

Welcome to
UQ (aka UK) Ltd. New Labour government is 'power' in denial. We've never had it so good: recession and depression, plummeting values, crime, violence and the 'politically correct' brigade.

348. It can seem bizarre, but often the worst examples of human behaviour are recorded and stay in the public consciousness. This forced and persistent reminder of individuals and deeds that should be simply ignored and forgotten remain. Lest we forget. It is either a peculiar desire to replay 'bad news' or it is deliberately kept alive for some reason. The control-element card is a prime suspect. The constant reminder of how bad things can (and possibly will) be is a wonderful method of focusing the mind to concentrate onto those otherwise easily forgettable events. Those that conveniently are desirable to force to remember.

349. The Earth will correct the balance between growth and survival. Already, the results of gross over-population are felt. They have been for a long time. Forcibly. Not enough sustainable food. The fixed amount of usable global water is in decline and making concrete produces
CO2 and consumes water by locking it up inside the concrete as it forms.

350. The shareholder vs co-operative ethos. Money ploughed back to benefit the consumer, not the shareholders. The
parasite feeds off the host or the one is fed to the other? The capitalist (greed) philosophy dies, but takes society as a whole with it. Or greed dies a lonely death?

Trees and fuel - but which way around? Are the tree bark, twigs and leaves the waste from the tree that is then destroyed by using as fuel or is the substance of the tree the lesser priority justification to harvest the 'waste'. The justification in harvesting the 'lungs of the Earth' for a fuel source that does not compete with food sources: cereals and other crops (sugar cane, rice).

352. The police claim the improved intention to listen, act and inform of complaint or investigation progress. Unless you are a criminal. This sounds very much like assurance to the public and unnerving the criminal without needing to do anything. Criminals are probably shaking in their boots and the public can sleep easily in bed, dreaming that they are better protected.

353. It is (almost) amusing to ogle the trough of
Westminster. Almost daily an MP or Minister is identified of 'doing nothing wrong', but allegedly milking the system. The latest individual is Tony McNulty . The standard response seems to involve that when such things are revealed, changes need to be made. But only after revelations and individuals are subsequently investigated.

354 The
climate change cash cow continues to thrive, but still no attempts are being made to reduce the levels of CO2. The cash cow is a protected species. As the altitude increases, a constant volume of pollutant (CO2) would fill a reducing volume of space. The greater the altitude the less the actual volume. The concept of a no-return position in climate change theory is reasonable since cooling could be accelerated as more atmospheric CO2 is dissolved in sea water. This removal of the gas from the atmosphere would work in parallel with less retention ofr eflected heat and heat could escape upwards into the higher atmosphere. The zone of excess heat would be effectively expanded and the trapping of heat would be tend to be avoided or certainly reduced. The other view is that warmer conditions ensure less CO2 is removed by dissolution in the sea. The extra gas would then be mixed in the atmosphere with the other gases. The temperature of the atmosphere would rise thereby warming the sea and releasing more CO2. This in turn would cause more CO2 to be expelled into the atmosphere making the problem worse.

This all presupposes that
CO2 is the (highly taxable) culprit.

355. The road to
Hope leads to Hell. Or Hope lies beyond Hell and to get to Hope, Hell must be experienced. Perhaps lemmings go there.

356. The peaceful protest in London regarding
G20 and attempt to resolve the issue of starvation in some parts of the globe is a gesture doomed to failure before it starts. The Summit has no interest in such things and will focus on how to strengthen the stranglehold through the financial system. The remit is not to solve problems, but make existing ones worse and even devise new ones. The 'leaders' (most influential) of the 20 wealthiest ‘developed’ nations actually helping? How did they become the wealthiest in the first place?

357. Attempts must be made to discourage the trend in the growing use of electricity, not the opposite. Installing lines of pylons to deal with projected increases. Manufacturers of large electricity-consuming devices will die as will (hopefully) the other dinosaurs
(car builders). They make articles that are not necessary and a malignant growth on the planet causing the all-important growth. Advertising expenses will cease and people won't be informed about things they can do without. That’s theoretical and, sadly, a wholly naïve viewpoint.

358. It's bizarre though very logical to the
monetarist: encourage the use of something potentially dangerous then increase taxation associated with its use. Perversely logical.

359. Pumice is an aerated material and will float. Consequently, an island raft of pumice will float. The pumice island near
Tongatapu is located about two miles from the eruption site. The volcanic arc in the Western Pacific is called the Ring of Fire and several chambers are thought to be feeding the Tongan volcano. This island of pumice is likely to last anything from months to years before it is eroded by wave action. A similar eruption two years ago resulted in the pumice drifting over 1200 miles to reach Australia.

360. The
Apollo hoax principle can be used to speculate a financially-based rout of mankind. It only takes a relatively small sub-group to fool all the others who work believing in what they do. The astronaut crews can be fooled by entering the space rocket... like walking into a lift. The exit can be any floor and without visual clues assumptions are easily manipulated. Even the image of the outside from a window can be illusory. Signs alleging a particular floor can be false. So the belief of the astronauts understandably seeing what they want or expect to see. 'Video' seen through a window can create the illusion to fit the belief. Exiting into a 'studio' and experiencing weightlessness would complete the illusion. Unbreakable. The explanation requires considerable open-mindedness to make absolute sense, but it would work.

The idea that governments have no control over banks is ludicrous. The scenario suggests manipulation to destroy global society. The majority of those mixed up in banking would be totally unaware of the
'game' being played.

The greed factor is just too powerful
to expect the blind to see

No accounting can be verified over any government
'spending' and the majority of the people seem to believe governments. But the governments wouldn't lie, would they? The MPs being an honest lot representing the government are a pillar of strength when it comes to faith in a system.

361. Whatever the future power source (there is always one at the head of any queue) it will predictably be
very expensive. By design. Tie people to energy needs and the game's won before it’s started. Even before the idea of a ‘game’ is realised. If ever.

362. Nuclear-powered energy production masks the creation of the requirements for atom bombs. The
direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) is a system in which methanol is electro-oxidised directly, without any pre-processing, to generate electrical power. This is attractive to the army since the transport of methanol cartridges is better than a complete battery. The fuel cartridge can be 'hot-swapped' facilitating operation of a device while it's being refuelled. This very neatly engages public support through items like mobile phones, laptop computers and video cameras. Hydrogen fuel cells are, in the short term, of great military interest (portable power).

Coincidental, of course, that this is
promoted as the favourite contender

The inevitable redundancy of the car mechanic would be replaced by an alterative specialist/technologist and is a massive issue with respect to the jobs game. Create more unemployed into a population of over growth and the mess is a potential disaster. Wind, sun and tidal (lunar) power are still the forces that should be used. But little if any military opportunity is obvious. But a terrorist's dream come true: vehicles legitimately in all sorts of public places with a tank of full of ammonia-borane (borazane). A bomb delivered by the military. The cover is perfect and blame can be easily passed onto any group who is not flavour of the month.

363. Banks specify the rate of interest being charged for a loan, but what is the payback rate of government (taxpayer) loans? It's never quantified and doesn't exist with the same meaning. Buying up debt by introducing
virtual money into the financial system is simply throwing good money after bad (toxic), but that's what happens. Buying up worthless collateral to justify 'giving' the banks 'new' money so they can screw the people with obscene rates of interest. The banking and financial system continues to play its obnoxious and dirty money-grubbing games. Quantitative easing? Flooding the 'market' with money or basically dumping money with the intent of restarting the debt-based financial system by 'creating' money. The addition of...


This is how the
'system' works. Create inflation and sustain the system. Print more money, so providing the banks with more money, with which to buy up toxic debt? Cyclical. Cynical.

364. Last days of government: commits any future, but
different, government to massive debt by spending billions in a recession causing 'depression' with MPs removing finance from the till (expenses) before it closes. Until the next time. As the (global) population continues to grow, competition becomes more fierce. The capitalist ethos invokes profit, so some companies will exploit the situation by threatening redundancy. The effect is to enable shedding jobs and enforcing pay reductions so lowering the salary bill. And forcing those with jobs to undertake increased work loads with the threat of losing their job if they don't comply.

In the longer term this is doomed to fail since people can only do so much. During the course of this inevitable failure, any annual pay rise (if they ever happen) will never catch up what has been taken away and the stick will come out with which to beat up employees. It's so predictable. The numbers of suitably qualified unemployed will rise with the consequence that lower salaries will be offered. Inflation and the costs of living will continue to rise, but with reduced salaries and graduates will continue to feed the over supply of the newly never-employed. The disaster can be clearly seen coming as it's all so predictable. If ever a sequel to the engineered 'economic crisis' were needed, this must surely be it.

Of course, if employees don't agree to a salary reduction to save others' jobs, then this is basically the coward's way out by pushing the blame onto work colleagues for failing to agree a
'sacrificial' pay reduction.

365. The fact that no ill-effects of
GM produce have been seen is true deceit and dastardly misrepresentation. The ill-effects won't be seen until at least the next generation comes of age, say in about the next 30-40 years. It also confirms that the feeding of GM 'food' has already been happening for years.

366. It's facinating to examine the confusion in some behaviours. The very young yearn to be older. Ideally, just a few years older and then
stay that age. As natural age 'creeps' up, the new ideal is to avoid the 'dis-ease' of age. The enormous amount of good money that chases after the uncatchable is staggering. Cosmetics to disguise age, as if nobody notices (always look to the hands, feet and neck), surgery to alter natural shape or the perceived deficit in desirable shape. Both are so highly lucrative. Everyone dies and most still as a result of 'old-age'. Whether an individual looks old or not by massaging appearance, the individual is still old. But death will supervene. Imagine: dying of old age and actually looking old.

  • This suggests that some will chose suicide rather than look old. This would be incredibly sad, but still nevertheless very plausible.
When do most of the aged population stop wasting their money? They usually do. Sometime. Some would possibly harvest and cannibalise a new born if they imagined it would defer lines forming. Maybe by just a few days.

367. Even governments know the game they play. Even when they like to portray ineptness. The control of climate and
CO2 emission control. The idea that 'paying to pollute' will solve the problem. There is no problem as it's described and believed. Even if humankind does not help itself by contributing extra gas emission. That's the power of a specious argument: it's plausible. Human respiration involves breathing out CO2. Eventually, there will logically be a tax levied on breathing. Ridiculous? Maybe, but it's logical and shows the speciousness in the argument. It is really all about the removal of the peoples' wealth through an argument that enables a tax on climate control to be 'justified'. The argument that involves blaming the people for causing the problem of global warming. It's a lie.

368. An
economic stimulus is essentially 'borrowing' public (taxayer) finance to kick start all kinds of schemes. Mostly those types of scheme that would prompt a bank (manager) to show a client the door. Schemes that have little hope of success are funded by the 'loser' taxpayer. There's nothing to lose. Only public money and there's nothing new in that philosophy.

369. Photographing London buses has been made illegal.

370. Iran vs a conspiring world? Classic spin?

371. Creation of human egg cells in sterile women using stem cells.
Extends the other end of 'menopause'.

372. Space Race. If there is no competition then funding won't happen. The taxpayer will be denied the opportunity of paying for it all. Underwriting the entire
'investigation'. The examination and exploration of the Moon is a common concern to all humankind, yet an exclusive right to this extra-terrestrial object by one country (government) is 'arrogantly' claimed. The space race was nothing but a charade to raise finance by public 'donation'. Man cannot survive in deep space. Orbiting in zero gravity for lengthy periods (months) is predictably deleterious. Stressing bone causing shearing forces (lifting weights) strengthens bone. A failure to cause shearing stress will encouage weakening. The manufactured illusion to astronauts into believing orbital space flight would be relatively easy to engineer especially if re-inforced by a deep-seated belief in 'reality'. Under water an anti-gravity illusion can be created by slow rotation (to confuse) and a movement to counter-act centrifugal forces.

IVF assists pregnancy for people who maybe shouldn't have children. Gamete alteration would create new lifeforms.

374. Taxing the rich will force discovering creative ways of legally saving money. The government is well aware of this. So threaten to tax the rich knowing that ways will be devised to get around it. Panderering to the people as though something is being done.
Fred "The Shred" Goodwin.

Reverse psychology: encourage poor nutrition, smoking, drinking by criticising those who do for the bad habits they have. This involves the culling of humanity.

376. The capacity of Man to subvert theory into a means of destruction is limitless. The damage done by explosive presure on the human body needs to be understood only to then maximise the physical or mental trauma possible. The hypocrisy of Man is exemplified by waging war, yet being disgusted and offended by violence. This portrays two sub-species: the violent and the non-violent. The supressed violence in those who design murderous weapons to inflict horror by the military is disturbing. Almost voyeurism by examining the results of the design to improve the effectiveness of the weapon.

377. Assuming the
climate continues to warm (it will) and any gas fields currently beneath the Arctic Ocean ice become accessible as the ice melts (not for the first time), new markets will inevitably be devised that require this energy source. In the same way that the financial system is 'propped up' recovery is always followed by a continuation of bad practice and in absolute stupidity to repeat past mistakes. Again. It begs a question: is it a deliberate act and not a mistake? The blind and greedy are simply stupid and short-sighted enough to deny responsibility for murdering the planet and everything that lives upon it. Profit and greed will be the drivers that ensure this resource will be consumed so later use will be negated. Maybe gas-fired cooling devices?

378. The government proposes to sell off part of the Royal Mail to a private buyer. The Post Office (and pharmacies and other shops) could also act as
enrolment centres for the ID card scheme. Cards will cost £30, but shops could charge another £30 to collect fingerprints and face scans. These are to be stored on a database. Security problems instantly becomes as issue. All issuing post offices and pharmacies would need to be behind some sort of national firewall to guarantee security. Any connection between government + security + guarantee is highly suspect. This is another exercise of government requiring information, but opting out of collecting it. It is shaping up to a system like the Lottery that clogs up the flow of (all) customers at many outlets that provide the 'service'.

379. Allowing private individuals to keep dangerous animals is dangerous in itself. The application of a
license is deemed sufficient to safeguard those living nearby (or anywhere else). By relaxing the law, government once again absolves itself from its responsibility to protect its citizens. Control of dangerous animals. This is similar to decriminalising any 'offence'. The police no longer have to follow up a 'crime' and it just makes the crime solving figures much better. Less work to do. Just drop it.

380. The larger the population, the greater the pool of testers and the size of the market place.

381. The parasite feeds. All the modern drugs that claim to target disease, simply create other problems that were never present to begin with. The second drug combats a side effect of the first. A third drug to counter a side effect of the second that is caused by the first. The classic cocktail of drugs used to treat a single condition. This cynically 'maintains' ill-health. The patient is not cured, but the symptoms are managed. The treatments probably do little to attack an ill-health issue, but consume most of the available money. It becomes self-perpetuating by financing a non-entity.

  • The hook of the 'nicorette'-type therapy. To wean off smoking? It maintains the desire for evermore and does nothing. Classic. The patch is required to supply nicotine, since no effort has been encouraged or made to 'kick the habit'. The only benefit could be derived from not producing the poisonously polluting smoke.
382. A perfect example of "biting off the hand that feeds": MPs and cabinet ministers. Now a suggestion that Chancellor Darling be handled carefully. Why? After robbing the people who put him on the road to where he currently is (05.06.09). Moving departments in a reshuffle would be a technical demotion. Tough. The price of betraying the ethics of honesty and probity especially when they are both expected.

383. There is a good reason for employing relatives and spouses: at the next election the £40,000 or so severence payments to payoff staff is retained within 'the family'.

384. Any future transgression may carry a year's prison. Unlike common law where a criminal act is normally in the past. So, an MP carrying out a criminal act involving fraud yesterday or earlier will be excused prosecution. Ridiculous and without logic. Presumably, being of a 'right honourable' and not 'left dishonourable' status makes them a special case. A murder carried out in the past isn't forgotten and will still be prosecuted well into the future from the time of the alleged offense. There is no statute of limitations in the UQ (aka UK Ltd).

Unjustifiable, pathetic and inexcusable. The reasoning of the imbecile that cannot be considered to show any form of self-responsibility and a sad day for justice when the establishment closes ranks to protect itself. The 'system' continues to degenerate by bathing in the cesspool.

385. All mathematics attempts to describe reality. Even quantum theory and celestial mechanics are descriptive concepts. That all the maths appear to be consistent isn't surprising and anything that doesn't fit inside the box must be wrong. The box stifles ingenuity and free thought because of peer group ridicule.

386. Government attitude to funding tennis. The more money thrown at the sport the more the expectation. Actually, sounds more like a Labour attitude towards that which is considered elitist.

387. The newest way of 'making' money and by doing nothing? Pay huge unjustified bonuses and create a failing business, especially in the banking and financial cesspools. Failure of a financial institution attracts shedlloads of taxpayer bailouts.

388. The growing public sector borrowing requirement in no small way pays for the disgusting BBC expenditure on lavishness for so-called 'celebs'.

389. Government continues to experiment with children's futures.

390. The government is confused and dangerous. It wants a war. Why? But it won't face the responsibility of paying for it. Absolute and contemptible betrayal. Public spending soars as the financial system requires by building debt, but cash up front is disallowed. Proves that 'money' is the target to effect domination and control.

391. People are being conditioned to accept death without complaint. The scare fever generated by the alleged 'swine flu' pandemic that will result in 1000s of deaths every month based on fiction should not cause alarm. It is even not necessary to call a doctor. Promoting these fear generating stories as everyone sits glued to their TV soaking in fea, but just die quietly and don't bother anyone. A load of bollocks.

392. Police obtaining a blood sample for any potential, yet unproven offense, constitutes acquiring DNA possibly without authority.

393. Tamiflu is a prescription drug to be 'prescribed' by an unqualified telephone diagnosis. The crime rate will predictably be rampant. This is unlikely to worry Roche : a sale is a sale even though black marketeering will happen.

394. The art of delegation involves handing over an entire project to somebody else, but retaining the responsibility. Blair handed over the responsibility as well to Gordon Brown.

395. Recession over! No chance, it will never be over. The ethic of interest, inflation and growth form a trinity of deceit and delusion. In the identical mechanistic fashion that promotes the 'sliding door' analogy of everyone becoming wealthier, a moment's lapse from viewing the trailing edge of that door, it would appear that growth could be a good indicator of progress. It isn't, but is purely illusion.

396. Melting ice cools the oceans, but what is an optimal temperature? What is a 'normal' temp? The waters could be warming with the consquential loss of ice to approach the 'normal' temp. Cyclical change can never be altered. Human effort at affecting the real causes of climate change are like attempting to extinguish an inferno by sprinkling with the contents of a watering can. Life will either adapt or perish, but Man's ingenuity can never compete against such a vastly superior force as natural consequence.

397. Change? For better or worse? That's never discussed. Always the future and hope are cited. Both are untestable and unverifiable. Learning from past mistakes provides new methods of repeating those 'mistakes', but in new ways.

398. Tough choices: the choices themselves aren't tough. The difficulty is taking the flack when the obvious is done.

399. High population with limited space - build upwards. The only reason to do this is to increase the profit yield by multiplying the footprint by the number of properties standing on it.
