Trust Us

In a joint statement from members of the Global Alliance for Virtuous Banking (GAVBank), account holders everywhere are being assured that “banks are good”.  The statement was issued in response to recent revelations that HSBC had allegedly acted as the conduit for a paltry €180Bn of tax dodges, drug money, blood diamonds and bankrolling of terrorists. The statement informs banking customers that: There is no need for concern.  Your money is totally safe with us, and is in no way used to fund or support illegal or unsavoury activities anywhere.  That’s what Bitcoin is for.  You should really stay away from … Continue reading Trust Us

The Easy Way Is The Only Way To Go

Some time late in the 20th Century, a concept for corporate, social, and environmental responsibility, known as the ‘Triple Bottom Line’ emerged as the widely-preferred method for operating a business or organisation. The idea was to give equal importance to the profits or savings that could be made, the social impact or contribution that could be offered, and the environmental sustainability of the activity. It was, as stated previously, the ‘widely-preferred method’ for how to operate.  In hindsight, it seems we were all fooled by hippies, ne’er-do-wells, social workers, and naive dreamers, who were all probably communists. Economists, CEO’s and … Continue reading The Easy Way Is The Only Way To Go

Three Reasons I Am Not The Lord Of The Known Universe

3 Reasons Why I’m Not Running The Company/Country/World/Universe ‘Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely‘.  I think this is a universal rule, and all positive character traits or any remnants of goodness are compromised by any awareness of one’s own power status.  The initial aims and goals of wanting to change things for the better always seem to lose out when worn down by the pressures of ‘reality’. I am honest to a fault (well, mostly, and at least while I have almost zero power – see point 1), and would be character assassinated or actually assassinated once I started opening my mouth in … Continue reading Three Reasons I Am Not The Lord Of The Known Universe

MH17 Crash Analysis, by The Russian Union Of Engineers

I know…  This silly web-log thing here is not supposed to be a conspiracy site.  But, fuck it.  I’ve published more than one potential conspiracy and, well, why stop now?  What will be will be… NOTE: The contents of this post are almost entirely extracted from The Oceania Saker.  If you are interested in a concise and seemingly sensible explanation of how the MH17 disaster transpired, then you need to read the entire report (now almost a month old).  There is a video there too.  Follow the link above (or here) to read the summary and download the report from … Continue reading MH17 Crash Analysis, by The Russian Union Of Engineers

Look Over There! No, Not There; Over There!!

Distraction. The only thing our fantastical and terrible Federal government is good at. Distraction. Here’s a little 3-dot-point list of (some of) the failures of this government, and the actions employed (by design or by pure luck) to distract from them. 1. Promises made in campaign-mode – Broken (too many to put a number on). A plane disappears (MH370).  “Look over there!  Look, I will find that plane.  Look, the world has made me the king of plane-finding.“ Operational result: FAIL Distraction result: 100% 2. A Federal budget so horrible, that it remains un-passed even as we draw closer to … Continue reading Look Over There! No, Not There; Over There!!
