I have already posted photos of the snow from 2012 and 1980s here so don’t need to backup* my comments, but it’s quite sad that this nation is so weak now that it cannot cope with weather it that is 100% NORMAL FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR!

It was often minus 5 or 6 when we let off fireworks on Nov 5 during my youth, and it is normal for the cold weather to last until April, never mind February, so all this nonsense about a ‘late spring’ is rubbish.

*OK, just one. Snowball fight I partook in, Oxford, UK, >>>>APRIL<<<< 2008. Plenty more photos of snow from 1970s, 80s, 90s, 2009, 2010 and so on available from my archives! 

It’s just an excuse for a very very lazy jobsworthian ENGLISH workforce to do as little as possible whilst the overpaid directors reap in the money saved by not running trains, cutting off our mobile signals (as warned) and so on. Having employed people of various nationalities, the English are the worst workers, taking an attitude that work is an inconvenience, and their time is far better spent sleeping.

The solution to this is to get off grid and buy an electric vehicle. The less your are reliant on someone else, the faster you can progress and of course, you’ll be happier and better company. Win win!

Fight slack club: Live work and play off grid, from power to transport to health.

BBC News: Anti-depressants: Major study finds they work

Anti-depressants: Major study finds they work – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-43143889

How much did big pharma slip you Professor?

More on this later.

Don’t believe a word of it.

First of all, we’ll need to separate genuine biochemical depression that has been with us forever from artificial depression created by contemporary society. Sadly, there is a link between all this and the massacres carried out in the USA, and it has all to do with society, exercise, diet and now made worse with social media that keeps people glued to devices rather than tactile people.

I do not have time to complete this post, so it will need to be left for now, but a good diet, social interaction, strong family unit (vital!), exercise/competitive sports and such are a natural way to avoid depression. You do not need to pop a pill.

Update – March 13 2018: This.

this happens. As I said, all this PC and oh woe is me rubbish being injected into the narrative is to distract young people from being concerned about important issues. Therefore, older more considerate but vulnerable people like the man in this footage have to hold the fort.

Snowflakes, I stated in another post, you are wrecking this planet you lazy self serving idiots. Wake up, man up and go protest outside!

(Only just came across this video whilst reading comments below this article. Heart breaking.)

Trump nailed it

leave a comment »

But the media twisted it. What did he say? He said that those who are angry, depressed or otherwise unhappy should always have someone to turn to: Family, friends, doctor or faith leader. Exactly.

I listened to his speech yesterday live, if it was scripted, it was well written, if it was from the heart, it was sincere. Either way, the media immediately discussed gun laws, that do have to be changed of course. Why does someone need an AR-15 exactly and how on Earth did this young man get one?. But the media did not discuss why people commit massacres, how to help them in advance and most importantly, what is wrong with American society that leads to such horror.

If all guns are banned, the potential killer will find another way, less effective, but the problem will remain. He or she may just kill themselves, and not take down anyone else, but that will still be a tragedy.

BBC News: Grenfell Tower campaigners in ‘Three Billboards’ stunt

Grenfell Tower campaigners in ‘Three Billboards’ stunt – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-43073382

Brilliant!

Whole Grenfell tragedy was a disgrace to this country. The same cladding caused fires in Dubai. Our white goods safety standards were weakened years ago to appease nations we have geopolitical interests in. The authorities and our Prime Minister’s response was cold hearted and indifferent. No one has been prosecuted. And so on.

BTW, the movie these billboards are based on is compelling and worth seeing.

And it’s happened again

leave a comment »

The second photo down in this BBC News article about yet another massacre in the US pretty much sums up why this sort of thing happens, as made very clear in my lengthy (albeit messy and badly written) dedicated page on gun law.

Why are pupils wearing casual clothes, in particular the young man on the left and the lady in a revealing top on the right? And why are they allowed to bring mobile phones into school? How can they concentrate in class and show respect for the teachers?

Where is the discipline in American schools? Why don’t they wear uniforms, that for the same reason that Masons dress as they do, maintains and encourages a code of conduct as well as reducing envy between social classes?

Until America lets go of liberal values for kids – including banning social media for anyone under 18, this will all continue.

Not good. If they ripped out the invasive ugly CCTV cameras and replaced them with sentient humans, crime would fall and wannabe police would have a career to aspire to.

He is correct. National infrastructure MUST remain state owned. Looking forward to getting our drinking water off grid, not just energy. Filters are the key to keeping it clean and free of particles.

BTW, just ordered a wind turbine to exploit windy days.

Oh what a feeling!

When one seeks to stop drinking alcohol for life and death reasons, the general advice is to go 100% dry. No compromise, else you’re kidding yourself.

Likewise, as of a few days ago, to force myself not to cheat or make the whole exercise pointless, having almost 500 watts of solar energy at my disposal (and more soon), I no longer charge my phones and one or two other devices using grid energy, whose source I cannot control. They are either charged from the battery connected to the solar panels or using the cig lighter in my car, which is of course powered by dirty fuel, but at least I’m using power that is there anyway. (Hope to get an EV once it is practical, and charge that using solar and/or wind too.)

20180209_152206

On the left out of focus is one of our solar panels. On the right up in the sky is your free source of unlimited energy for the next 4 billion or so years. I took this photo from my desk whilst writing this post, and that sun is charging my phone – in Fast Charge mode too, along with two other phones and this Logitech Craft keyboard that needs topping up once in a while. Baby steps.

90% of my gadget energy comes from the sun, so using the car is only when travelling with my phone that is used as a navigation tool – GPS uses a lot of power, so the phone needs to be connected to a power source for long journeys.

It feels very cool to see ones 4 gang power socket power block NOT connected to the mains, but instead, to the output of the inverter that itself is connected to a power regulator that the solar panels are connected to. Phew!

One looks up at the sun knowing it was a gift that gave us life. It can save us from ourselves too.

Light back club: Disconnect.

If I was PM…

(Would implement a few of Boris’s ideas, at least he has vision.)

  1. Cancel HS2, new technologies are going to render clunky trains obsolete
  2. Move Heathrow out to the sea and turn the current airport into a national park and entertainment complex (horrible place to navigate too, visit and fly from)
  3. Offer businesses with the roof space a tax incentive to install solar panels and wind turbines on their roofs, garage fourcouts included
  4. Regain state control of ALL the current rail networks and choose the same carriage design nationwide:
    1. Power ports at each table
    2. Solar panels on the roof
    3. More leg room
  5. Retain the NHS but build state of the art mobile hospitals (think futuristic RV) that visit communities every month offering checkups and A&E. This to reduce need to travel to main hospitals.
  6. Ban advertising of junk food and sweets to anyone under 18
  7. Ban use of social media by anyone under 18

It’ll never happen. Because greed always takes priority over ethics and quality of life.

I have not revealed this publicly before, but I used to know Elon Musk and always sensed he was special. What he is doing is diametrically the opposite of what the old school corporations on this planet are doing, said corporations are going to die a long slow death as renewable energy coupled with the sorts of people in the photo above pull the rug from under them. This cannot happen soon enough!

I have solar panels powering some of my gear now (and am forcing myself NOT to use the grid to charge or power my phone and weather station, and later, more equipment as we install more solar panels and possibly a micro wind turbine.) On the other hand, if we cannot save the planet, at least we’ll have a backup on Mars, although I’m of the school that would prefer we restore this planet to it’s natural glory before we dirtied it.

Fight black stuff: Buy Tesla.

Help the police eh? The UK government (at their own admission!) runs a total surveillance state, so now CCTV and Internet monitoring are up and running, next up our minds will all be read, just to catch the ‘bad guys’ before they…

…Tweet that politically incorrect in the eyes of the humorless authorities thought.
