Twitching

It's that time again.  When squirrels, not quite carpet but occasionally litter these roads. Some lounge in tiger skin poses, prostrated flat by bad decisions red or grey I love them all I've witnessed them explode,  minced meat lifting one last dance beneath the car in front. Drove past one flatten...

Re: Memo to the Following:

Losing your religion Linda? Some cultures believe they actually deserved whatever miseries befall them  :roll: If you're thinking of writing a letter...don't waste the stamp...They're not listening. Say your prayers, I do, out of habit, for other people...just in case  :) Although I'm thinking we sh...

Like this one very much.

Re: Transhumanism

Not a case of 'not liking humans' Dave. We are (so far) incapable of creating a decent human civilisation. And the future prospects look even more dismal than the past! I really believe transhumanism will become the norm. The possibilities are infinite, and if God exists he knows where we're heading...

Re: Top Doctor Warns of Deep Fat

Tough choices Linda.  A little of what you fancy is good advice...as I age I prefer cyclical fasts and binges   ;) Other advice is eat what your grandparents ate...but you must work your body the way they did! I don't want to live to big numbers...life is about quality not quantity in my book. I'm a...

Re: Transhumanism

Thanks for your comments. A soul is a lovely idea...I hope I'm wrong, but it appears to be similar to love! Love is an evolutionary construct our 'intelligent' minds have elevated beyond its real value...if saltwater crocodiles didn't 'love' their hatchings they wouldn't live long enough to make mor...

Transhumanism

I like A.I. Love the idea of applied logic reaching out,  children teaching parents.   It'll do and say what we know we should. Might be predictable and seem repetitive. But we'll all 'love' each other, won't be human love...the type that hurts deceives or destroys. The prime code could contain a li...
