Invention idea:

Instead of wheelchairs, we should invent Robotic horse-legs so that people whose legs don't work very well can be Cyborg Centaurs

I'm so old that my first company's advertising material was proud of the fact that every engineer had their own PC

Grace Tame, 2021 Australian of the Year, is all of the things.

Immense fury + devastating intelligence + poise + tact + deadly precision + inspiration + boldness + bravery + respect + compassion + strength + stamina + toughness + determination + hope + being the right person, in the right place, at the right time, with the right support team, and the right platform.

Oh. Wow.

Judaism does not have an afterlife.
Jesus changed the rules and said OK now anyone who wants to study Judaism 2.0 can live on in the afterlife.
But the Jews don't believe Jesus was the Messiah.

George Lucas is Jewish.
Qi-Gon Jin cracked the secret of how a Jedi can live on as a Force-Ghost after death. He taught this to Yoda. Yoda taught it to Obi-Wan Kenobi. Obi-Wan taught it to Luke Skywalker.

Qi-Gon Jin was a Messiah of the Jedi.

Jesus was a Jedi of the Jews.

Or something.

I dunno. 🤷‍♀️

I got diagnosed with ADHD yesterday.

This is huge. YUGE, I say.

I will start meds soon.

Dr Shrink says I should notice instant, massive difference.

I wish I had've found this out 15 years ago. My career would have taken a very, very different direction.

I have to believe that I would not have made the same epic life fuckups if I was on the right meds.

Different fuckups, sure, but the point is valid.

Untreated ADHD has got me where I am today.

We've missed an opportunity I think.

The button to sync files/folders should be labelled "Fire torpedo!"



I've just had a meeting with a Psychiatrist re: ADHD diagnosis. He said I am definitely textbook ADHD. Starting me on Ritalin.

Forget speaking truth to power. How about speaking common sense to stupidity?

Sir Terry Pratchett was the cleverest, funniest author who has ever lived.

I have always cleaned up the dogshit in the backyard before mowing the lawn, but yesterday I didn't bother, I just mowed right over it.

Today, I very much regret that laziness.

Cave paintings showing hunters spearing a deer, shooting arrows into buffalo, etc. were a type of "creative visualisation" - a very powerful psychological tool. Many native people have traditional dances, showing how to hunt, and they would have a pre-hunt dance party. In this respect, many magic spells, sports teams's locker room strategy meetings, etc. use exactly the same phenomena and work amazingly well. It's a type of hypnotic suggestion. Very effective. Also eg. Nightclub sexy dancing.

When my aunt Karen dies and goes to the afterlife, she is definitely going to ask to speak to the manager.

I think we should all get a barcode tattoo for every vaccination that we get, starting at birth

Science: Hey we've invented a chemical that nothing can destroy, not even fire.

World: Cool, let's use it to put out fires

Rich people: Cool we will manufacture trillions of tonnes of it

World: Hey why is our world now polluted everywhere with this poisonous PFAS shit

Rich people: 🤷🤷‍♀️🤷‍♂️

Science: 🤦🤦‍♀️🤦‍♂️

Consider this. What if, right, you know, what if, like, I am actually really, really smart and I can see with crystal clarity that conservative party members and conservative voters are literally the worst, shitty half of humanity, and they are going to be the cause of the catastrophic downfall of civilisation and all of Earth's ecosystems. In the annals of history, what could I be forgiven for doing?

Hypothetical question, of course.
