Hello again iiwiiers
There's a story here that's pretty darn interesting about an ancient fungus that's started killing a shitload of frogs in 'the past decade'. I was going to tell you about it just because it was interesting, even having nothing to say about it. They don't understand it so well because it's so old-fashioned, and they don't know why its behaviour changed, if that's what happened, but they're finding out about it. But I got to thinking. Ancient fungus, from a family half a billion years old, suddenly starts killing frogs. How likely is that? What's its motivation? Is it prone to these sudden changes of routine? I haven't heard that it is. What could the fungus have against frogs? Something that happened about ten years ago? What would frogs have suddenly done or said to make the fungus angry, or at least feel that it had a grievance? Does any of this sound convining? Or could it be that the fungus is being framed? How trustworthy are these scientists? We only have their word for it. Perhaps it's all the result of some bitter warped scientist, whose girlfriend left him because he had ancient fungus on his walls, who has vowed to take his terrible revenge on the fungus using every means at his disposal. Perhaps he invented some thing to kill all the frogs as part of his terrible cruel plan. Unlikely? Perhaps. More unlikely than what we are told to be the reality? Perhaps not.
I've been reading all over the ruddy place (so I won't link you) that anyone can be synaesthesic under hypnosis. But why? And anyway, are they really or are they just imagining it because they're under hypnosis? You could probably hypnotise real synaesthesics (hello Anne) to think they weren't, but they still would be, if you know what I mean. Perhaps the stories covered some of what I'm saying, I didn't have time to read them. When I said I'd read it all over the place, 'seen' would have been a more accurate word to use than 'read' I suppose. Oh well. I see the BBC picked up on my coffee trust story from yesterday. Well, they might have got it somewhere else. But I had it before them. So I win.
"I haven't killed anybody. I've never wanted to kill anybody. I've tried to analyse it, and I think, since I started making hit records, I've thought, 'Jesus Christ, this is the best thing that's ever happened to me.' But always you think this is going to fall apart. Something will happen. There is a skeleton in the closet. Which there isn't. But in my mind I think they're going to find that out, and that's going to finish me." That's Tom Jones, wondering why he has those recurring nightmares. I think the answer is obvious, and he knows it. He really is a dangerous serial killer. They say he wakes up in a bath of sweat. That's not going to give you a good night's sleep, no wonder he has nightmares! Go to sleep in a bed, Tom, they're lovely. And why a bath of sweat? Is this some weird thing you think will keep you young? Been taking advice from Michael Jackson, have you? Do yourself a favour, Tom, cut out the sweat baths, they make you look as if you've had cosmetic surgery. And not in a good way. Take advice from The King Of Pop and you might end up looking like him. And cut out the murdering, it's clearly troubling you on some level.
that's all from me for now
see you around
