totally innocent (and unaware of my dark side) posted this—

“Downstairs, in the basement, there is a… prison! I was more than surprised to find it out… Like the library stuff explained to me, the students who thought differently, ‘against the rulers’ were placed there to elaborate on their ideas and change their opinion to the mainstream. In some cases, the students were kept in those tiny rooms so long that they went crazy and were not able to function normally…”

I REMEMBER HEARING

that old ditty with words to the effect “… fire, not a flood, next time” and here I am, in the firing line with no fire extinguisher* .

Here, kitty kitty kitty ...

C’mon in! We’re just getting warmed up!

SO WE HAVE JUST

five days left. Or is that six? Greenwich Mean Time or US Standard Time? Bugger … New Zealand time? (We kiwis lead the world in times, so I guess we go under the mallet first—the Aussies a close second—and after them: the rest of you heathens.)

So I visited the link—all very normal, but I didn’t suffer through the videos though. I find it hard to believe that even God could sneak a planet of Niburu size in close enough to pounce on us with no more warning than a web site.

But then again, anyone who could erase innocent dinosaurs without warning, and then later on pop off all those mammoths and stuff, creating and ending ice ages … brrrrr.

“Mr Argus, Sir?”

“Eek!  Oh, it’s just you, Little Ollivia—”

“Sir, are you going to abandon Nick and embrace the Christian God?”

“Not at this stage, Child … I’ll take my chances along with them dinos.”

*  Okay, I do have a fire extinguisher (but from that prophecy and ol’ Nick above it ain’t gonna be nowhere near up to the job). Brrrrr~!

 

AT LAST!

pcSOMEONE WITH

more spheres than me, who dares tell it like it is—

 

 

I must admit I don’t especially like ol’ Jimmy (the presenter) but his topics resonate with me.

And when he points out a few home truths (as he does above) about—

(a) The Establishment, and

(b) the Great Paradigm of science that is Dr Zahi Hawass itself

—then I find myself warming to him (Jimmy) despite the over enthusiastic exuberance. Put it down to my age and mileage … but Jimmy still gets my vote.

AND I’d not seen the above episode before this morning.

TRUST SCIENCE?

OR NOT … dodo

for me the only answer is yes. Yes, one hundred percent!

Sometimes …

… and other times I think “What’s in it for him? Her? It?” referring to the experts in question. But one thing in common to each and every expert—

—he or she is always right and everyone else either wrong, incorrect, badly instructed, loopy or just plain deluded.

I FORGET THE NAME

of the unhung genius who after assiduous research reported on the Life Expectancy of a fact. Any fact. Sadly I also forget the endurance of incumbent fact(s), but it is surprisingly brief.

‘Nuff on that; on with the bleat!

“… When scientists discovered beautiful hand stencils painted on the walls of an Indonesian cave back in the 1950s, they thought the artwork was about 10,000 years old.

But a new analysis shows that the artwork from the Sulawesi cave is about four times older, dating all the way back to 40,000 years ago.

That places the hand paintings among the oldest art ever discovered — a finding that challenges the traditional view that creative art first arose not in Asia but in the West…”

The clock keeps winding itself ever further back despite the ferocious resistance put up by ‘experts’ whose tenure, stipend, reputation etc might be on the line or toppled by new discoveries.

So? So I was drawn by this snap. To my untrained but red-blooded eye it looks surprisingly feminine. In short, I was expecting big-hairy-brute-with-huge-club and got a refugee from Swan Lake instead.

I recall that a year or three back someone floated the notion that the cave arts were mostly (if not all) done by wimmin brutes rather than man brutes. Perhaps they were right … and the male of the species better suited to putting out the cat and bringing in the newsrocks. Is the paradigm changing?

I have no idea. Go ask a scientist for todays opinion … but don’t quote it tomorrow because it will be yesterday’s—and there’s a finite limit on knowledge*. Just ask Virginia Steen McIntyre …

WORLD WILL END

panacea—wait for it! (Catchy headline, though?)

OKAY—

here’s ya quote:

“… Conspiracy theorists think an astronomical alignment involving the constellations Leo and Virgo, along with various other planets will fulfill this prophecy word-for-word.

The Rapture is the second coming of Jesus Christ as prophesied in John 14:1-3 where those who have lived ‘sin free’ lives meet the Lord.

Proponents of the outlandish theory say the women mentioned in the prophecy represents the constellation Virgo, while the crown of stars represents Leo…”

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=11923011

—and I resent it. I’m a self-confessed Conspiracy Theorist and I do NOT believe the world will end in a blitz of Jesuses, or Leos, or Virgins. (Mind you, a few stars falling on us might do the trick but I doubt that even a star can sneak past NASA without someone alerting The Donald.)

No. ‘Tis ever thus, even we nutcases get quoted out of context. Anyway, everyone knows the world actually ended back in 2012. Them Mayas were pretty good at sums … but on ‘nutcase’ this next guy (same reference, is that economy or wot?) ticks a few boxes too—

Italian exorcist claims floods and storms are a sign of the apocalypse

Meanwhile an exorcist has claimed recent storms and flooding are signs of an imminent biblical apocalypse.

The famous demon hunter also claims that the devil is “behind” North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

Don Antonio Mattatelli made the alarming claims in response to a string of natural disasters …

This nutter’s bag is The Rapture. Do you remember the rapture? From memory that was when God, carefully monitoring your progress along your very own Free Will (the predestined path He set out for you before The Creation) and with one eye on your very own hourglass would at the exact moment your last grain of sand trickled through neck … would reach down and (gently, note) snatch you up to Heaven—no matter what you were doing at the time, hence the famous bumper sticker of the True Believer:

IF I’M RAPTURED

TAKE THE WHEEL

—which shows that someone had an eye for civic duty and human responsibilities. (Even if The Lord didn’t) (oops, doesn’t).

IN THE MEANTIME

BS 2

 

(As for my presence on the internet—how the hell could a simple Italian exorcist know that? Brrrrr~!)

CHATTING

pcby phone with my sister

IN AUCKLAND

this evening, she berated me for not keeping up with the latest world news. I have to admit that she has a point.

BUT SHE 

was all upset because the North Koreans had fired a missile over Japan. People there, she told me, had taken shelter. Sis cares, I don’t. But then, Sis is also easily led …

SO:

did North Korea fire a missile through the rooftops of Japan, or exactly how close did it get to Japan? (I always thought those things went ballistic, and at a fair height).

So a few minutes ago I thought I’d take the lazy man’s way out and read up. Then I had a better idea, after reading this—

Early reports indicate it was in the air for a total of just 17 minutes, during which it reached an altitude of 770km and flew a total of 3700km. This is characteristic of the nuclear-capable HS-12 intermediate range ballistic missile (IRBM).

—I thought I could ask you knowledgeable bloggy folks.

It’s from the New Zealand Herald. Here, have a look for yourself:

I don’t know if the damned thing cruises (?) (okay, travels) at peak altitude for a while or if it goes all the way up to that 770 kilometres peak and then immediately starts coming down again. BUT—

either way I’d say that it didn’t travel through Japanese airspace

—and if it did then an awesome amount of folks* have an awesome amount of justifiable gripes against an awesome amount of space-faring nations.

Or is my sister a sucker for someone somewhere manipulating facts, possibly for propagandistic gain? (CLUE:  don’t ask me—I’m just a dum dog.)

PERSPECTIVE

Screen Shot 2017-06-05 at 16.36.23“… bring me a little perspective,” said one Anton Ego in the famous Rats movie (I still don’t know how the Yanks get “Ratatooey” out of “ratatwee” but there yer goes) … *

IN THE COURSE OF MY

meanderings (Conspiracy Theorist First Class) I frequently have recourse to maps.

No big deal, anyone can read a map—even if over the course of a lifetime all the lovely red bits on the world map have been replaced with bleuch.

All well and good but not many seem to realise that the typical map is only representational (meaning: the world isn’t really like that). Globes are better …

SO HAVING PLOUGHED

through oodles of the literature I finally found one that (really!) rings my bell.

This wee bugger—

Map.png

—which I believe is an ‘azimuthal equidistant projection’. Wow … apparently it puts things into perspective (even if a chunk of Argentina seems a bit missing).

AND THEN

thanks to the miracle of modern science coupled with the need for some folks to make their honest buck I happened across a few more—

—and this one I especially like, ‘cos it put us up at the top. If you’re wondering about the white frilly edge, that’s Antarctica. I guess equidistant penguins must get bigger …

AND NOW

centred on the Equator, the same thing only different—

mp2_AzmEqD-s40-z-90-x-90.png

—I love ’em. They play merry hell with perspectives drilled into us by our education indoctrination systems, but they’re fun.

But if you want a true perspective buy a globe. Expensive for what they are you get your money’s worth reality wise—or if you’re a cheapskate like moi, buy an inflatable one …

—mine looks just like this only different. And on a really cold morning it goes a little 3d, with the added bonus of bogs and mountains. Boom boom!
