MYSTERY

AND I

interpret the following image differently. How you?

BACKGROUNDER

I was tootling through a woodsy bit of trees fringing Queens Park, right alongside Queens Drive. And happened across this—

QP 1.png

—tucked away where it wasn’t open to casual observers.

So?

SO IT ASKED 

a lot of questions. At first and subsequent glances it looked like a child’s lunchbox, for school.

Not there long, by the look of it. A couple of days at the most … and it had been fairly demolished. Not just a casual drop and explode, impact damage falling from no height onto soft leafage; no, a wildly enthusiastic beat-up.

TO MY JAUNDICED EYE

it looked like yet another sad case of ‘bully’ damage. I think some poor wee fellow would have had to explain away a missing lunch box (and raging appetite) to his loving Mum when he got home after school that night.

Loving?

Yes … look at the contents of that trampled lunchbox. Nicely wrapped roll, quality box—I imagine that if there were any choccies or candy it went the way of all loot before the box got jumped on.

Then again, my jaundiced eye could be wrong—

Hydra

—but the ubiquitous eternal Hydra still has many faces.

AND NOW

A ‘POST SCRIPT’ FOR SCOTTIE

(see ‘comments’ … )

set scene 1.png

—the two nearest schools are at top of park.

The demolished lunch box was in the trees (close to King Street) which are more concealy than they might look. Not that anyone driving past along Queens Drive would look anyway … as zoomed in below:

set scene 2.png

—position of indicator thingy only approximate. Good luck, Detective Scottie~!

Much of the park is golfing course—an awareness of possible flak is a requirement when crossing the scare-ways; and many a time I’ve been rabbiting about amongst the shrubbery looking for mushies and things when balls have clattered through the greenery overhead. (What guys lack in marksmanship they make up for with uninhibited enthusiasm …)

WHY NOT,

I SAY …   dodo

push the limits? Who dictates that we must stay within the square, hmm? But we do. We’re good, we do as instructed by our betters—especially those licensed to be ‘authoritative’; like (say) those who dictate (say) the ‘age’ of the Great Pyramid in Egypt. And function, meaning purpose—damned thing is just a tomb for an obvious megalomanic narcissist*?

BUT AS A SELF-CONFESSED

nutcase I can get away with asking dum questions.

I ASK BY PRESENTING

information for others to think about. And this is important, I want to trigger neither gasps of admiration nor reflex snorts of disbelief; I just want to get people to think.

AND BLENDING DISPARATES

into one, a final question: how come some ancient Egyptian mummies hold traces of cannabis and nicotine?

Brrrrr …

push the limits? Who dictates that we must stay within the square, hmm? But we do. We’re good, we do as instructed by our elders and betters—especially those licensed to be ‘authoritative’; like (say) the nice experts who dictate facts such as the age of (say) the Great Pyramid in Egypt. Age, and function, and by function I mean its purpose—damned thing was thrown up to be a tomb for an obvious megalomanic narcissist*.

BUT AS A SELF-CONFESSED

nutcase I can get away with asking dum questions.(I rarely get satisfactory answers but I do like to ask).

I ASK BY PRESENTING

information for others to think about. Think, I said—and this is important, I want desperately to trigger neither gasps of admiration nor snorts of (blanket) disbelief; I just want to get people to think**.

HEY YOU—

SNOWFLAKE! pc

And your ‘educators’ …

WHILST RABBITING

through some old newspaper cuttings this afternoon I happened across an article from the ‘New Zealand Herald’ dated March 1988.

I quote—    finger-pointing-down-animation-gif

“Personal self-esteem is the starting point for a healthy community,” the race relations conciliator, Mr Walter Hirsh, said … 

“The most important thing our schools can give our children is not an A bursary or five A grades in School Certificate, but an A in self-esteem …”

I DISAGREE

and posit that the most important thing schools can give children is an education. The last thing schools should give a child is a qualification. Qualifications should be earned, not given (such freebies are worth only the price paid).

AND

nobody can ‘give’ self-esteem. Genuine self-esteem is a byproduct of accomplishment, and such self-esteem comes from the overcoming of challenge on an individual level.

FOR MYSELF

I would hate to see (say) mathematics classes lose place to ‘self-esteem’ classes wherein the students sit in circles patting each other, for certificates.

But I suspect that this is what has given birth to the

snowflake

generation. I could be wrong and await rebuttal.

Snowflake~?


The term has undergone a curious journey to become the most combustible insult of 2016. It emerged a few years ago on American campuses as a means of criticising the hypersensitivity of a younger generation, where it was tangled up in the debate over safe spaces and no platforming. A much-memed line from Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club expresses a very early version of the sentiment in 1996: “You are not special. You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same organic and decaying matter as everyone else.”

Post Script:

Before posting, I happened across this erudite definition—

—make of it what you may.

SATORI~!

that moment of enlightenment, the breakthrough. It comes suddenly, and often when least expected.

buitre162I JUST HAD

a mini-satori.

Almost ashamed to admit in mixed company that I am a (SFX: insert a ‘Hoooooickkkkk … SPIT~!’ here please) damned Conspiracy Theorist (CT) because of their use of the term ‘reptilian’ … but first, here’s a wee image for you—

eeek!.png

—one that denigrates my cause rather than enhances. Fanciful? Read on …

It illustrates one of the reasons I detest being typecast. I am an individual and dislike being lumped in with the other nutters (one of the symptoms of other nuttery being their usage of the word ‘reptilian’) (see image, above).

I find it hard to believe that citizens of the planet Zork (why are they always given names like Zork?) are here with snakey visages concealed behind peel-off faces.

THEN IN A MOMENT

of Dog-given rapture I had a Satori—the entire universe went ‘CLICK!’ (or was it clunk? Squelch?) and high-school botany sprang to mind.

I WAS TAUGHT

that our human brain comprises of all sorts of lobes, synapses, sub brains and various wriggly bits. All good clean fun … and we have primarily the mammalian brain that makes us what we are (civilised? Oops) and (you’ll love this!) a more ancient ‘reptilian’ brain.

Well now.

And the reptilian brain is a lot more primitive, being unconcerned with such niceties as sharing and compassion. Apparently the reptile thinks only of self—and is totally focussed on that.

Now we know ....png

Anyone we know?

So I can say with a clear conscience that effectively all politicians and religious leaders are Reptilians. No need for peel-off faces with snakey good looks beneath—and it all comes together nicely. Took me a long time, I must be getting old …

cerberus-2Now go look up the derivation and meaning of the word ‘persona’ … I shan’t wait. (I have a skin to shed …)

IF IT

LOOKS

like a duck,

not PC 2

 

WALKS

buitre162

like a duck,

TALKS

like a duck,

SMELLS

like a duck …

 

 

—then I’m a duck (oops) a bloody racist, right?

“Mr Argus, Sir?”

Oh poop … it’s her again—

“Yes, little Ollivia?”

“You should really ought to define ‘racist’ before being one, Sir?”

Bugger. She would use semantics against me …

But one girl’s ‘Racist’ is another man’s Realist, no?

SO:

ya watched the video; whaddya reckon about them onions, hey? (Blasted racist reporters … and Sweden is a sovereign nation, right? And a democracy, right? So they brought it on themselves, right?) (Actually it’s not too long ago that Sweden was touted as the definitive all-singing all-dancing Democracy …)

BE VERY CAREFUL

WHAT YOU ASK FOR,

YOU MAY JUST GET IT

In the meantime there’s plenty of room in Europe for many millions more refugees, and they will certainly boost the birthrate and the working population; just what is needed.

“Mr Argus, Sir?”

“Yes, little Virginia?”

“Sir—that was outright sarcasm!”

“Good heavens, child, you spotted it! So few ever do …”

Never mind, Snowflake. You reap what you sow. Sometimes you don’t even need do that much, just democratically benevolently let your elected*  leaders do it for you …

Kismet.png

* And don’t forget, YOU voted for them (I didn’t).

SOME THINGS SHOULD

buitre162NOT

BE FIDDLED WITH …

… lest they rise up and bite thee on the bot. Butt. Arse—

Professor Michael Hiscox, the former Harvard academic who oversaw the trial, said he was shocked by the results and has urged caution.

“We anticipated this would have a positive impact on diversity — making it more likely that female candidates and those from ethnic minorities are selected for the shortlist,” he said.

“We found the opposite, that de-identifying candidates reduced the likelihood of women being selected for the shortlist.”

Oh dear.

Furthermore, bugger. (Poop, too.)

IN MY OWN IDEAL

world an employer—any employer, all employers—are (okay, should be) entirely free to pick and choose for themselves.

Except where taxpayer monies are funding the operations, in which case let the taxpayer choose, no? (If this means you, wee idealist—please suggest the mechanisms?)

ALL DEVOLVES 

to money.

Everything is money. (Any takers this time?) Even guns boil down to money, although admittedly hee hoo—

—hee hoo has the most biggest guns sets the pace (most often governments) … but some bugger has to pay for them.

And if you have money, you can buy guns. Heck, enough money and you can buy governments.

THE NEXT BEST THINGimages

lies in bending the ‘minds’ of the masses in your direction. Hence instead of education we have many thousands of people imbibing Snowflakery; these people who cannot see (and act on) contradictions are welcome fodder for the vote buyers and future controllers: people ‘entitled’ to their free ride.

THE METHOD?

(a) find or create a grievance, and then

(b) milk it for all you can get.

But sometimes even the nicest of well-intentioned highly educated idiots can be a bit surprised—

Men continue to outnumber women at senior ranks of the public service, despite vastly outnumbering men at the rank-and-file level.
