No matter how bright you are or how much you know you can always learn more. I had a lesson this weekend on my presentation, and how to think like your audience and not like your peers. The message does not change but if you are polarised in your approach the potential pupils just switch off and ignore you. I found it easy to adjust and hope the results are now better as I'd reached the point where I'd given up expecting a single change from the vast amount of material I now have at my fingertips. And despite creating a short but incriminating summary of overt statements declaring global warming was indeed created by an elite to divide and control the masses, nothing, not a reply, reaction or surprise except from a radio presenter. But despite being on a national programme only 10 people checked the website. But I know now and so do they, and if any fucker says 'Why would there be a conspiracy?' as they still do whenever it's mentioned, I just say 'Club of Rome 1991'. It's not isolated of course, it's been repeated by Gorbachev (1996), his second in command and Ottmar Edenhofer, and the Bilderberg 2010 agenda included 'Global Cooling'. Of course we now know the solar minimum is both expected to wipe out the total warming since 1850 and explain the sun does drive temperatures and not you and me. We are still expecting the first new minister for tide control probably in the UK, but that always ignored the evidence and no doubt they'll also be naked except for the wonderful suit of invisible clothes. It all relies on enough twats accepting it, so don't be a twat and they'll eventually go away.
After my eyes, teeth, blood and finances were all inspected and passed fit my house now needs a builder, electrician, plumber and boilerman. The promised deadlines for the electrician and plumber have been and gone with no electrical or plumbing activity (it would be more surprising if it hadn't considering), the builder is Polish so if he says he'll come next week he'll come next week or possibly even sooner, and the boilerman comes from the neighbouring dimension where time is a few months shifted from here. My boiler is in fact virtually no more than a metal box on the wall. I somehow tricked it into providing the hot water for a bath on Thursday, but that was a one off and the system is fucked both heating and hot water and less than four years old.
I do still try and read other blogs when I get the chance, but every time I add one to the list they pack up within months, and any new ones I find aren't active. I use another site where they are now so still get comments, just not usually here. But the quality and unique opportunity to write is still specific to these sites and maybe people are too busy fighting and showing off on Facebook to do something more creative and personal any more. I have in fact now been mentioned in two national papers (no photo so barely noticed) simply by being the only person to complain against a road trap for motorists a few years ago in a local paper. It generated three weeks of letters and stopped. Then a member of staff went national and carried the story with him, it's had no effect on the council who steal money from innocent people, but the media love it. It's been on TV, the radio and mentioned in other articles, but despite the local paper now wanting to campaign against it no lawyer has arrived and unless a case is built in the High Court Camden couldn't care less. But it's growing in awareness and if anyone comes on board to work for nothing we'll be off.
I've barely got any plans now, I've been busier than I have for years, and needed a break, and just a couple of long photo runs to do for the site which need the time and energy. But now I know all the usual suspects for any symptoms I've had are absent I can pretty well get on with things and just be careful.
