Hello again iiwiiers
Sometimes because I drone on at such length about something on It Is What It Is I end up not bringing you all the items I hoped to, due to reasons. I think this might be the sort of IT Is What It Is where I bring you a myriad array of thingies, perhaps not covering them in much depth, rather than my usual schtick. No, not filler! You folks are so cynical. First up we have this:
Well, I don't have anything to say about that really, except I suspect I should have thought it was rubbish and not worth reporting. But I enjoyed it. Yes, like the ordinary folk would. Sometimes it's almost as if I'm human. But anyway, I'm not saying anything about it, not doing very well at that. I thought I was going to be off to a good start too!
I've rearranged my desk slightly so that the monitor is pretty much straight ahead of me and I can sit straighter. It feels strangely odd. That's not tautology, it's strange that it should feel odd being straighter. This must be such a relief for you, the way I started today's you must have worried that there wouldn't be much if any of the usual rubbish. Well there is, so hurrah.
I just read a great thing about twelve living fossils. Read and looked and watched. Of course by 'living fossil' they don't mean rock things that come to life aargh spooky. They mean ancient weird animals from fossil times that turn out to be still around, unevolved. It had some that were both interesting and previously unknown to me, a rare combination indeed. Even a few of the ones I was already aware of were interesting.
Here's a stupid headline - Festive bus strike gets under way. What's festive about it? Erm, it's today. Which is early december. When some people might be shopping for Jessmas. I'm sorry, but I don't think that qualifies something as festive. If it does, then this It Is What It Is is festive, and so was yesterday's. And that video of the Zionist settlers shooting the Palestinians, that's festive too. And next time I go to the toilet, it will be festive. I think not. A shop guy said he feared that vital pre-Jessmas trade could be lost. How likely is that? "I'm sorry I didn't buy you anything for Jessmas, but three weeks ago when I was going to buy it the buses were on strike, so I decided not to bother after that, only having three weeks left. Buying it for you on a subsequent day wasn't an option, I remember that, although the reason why eludes me at the moment I assure you that it is so."
And finally, the UK has a space programme again! It says the country has a bigoted 'robots only' space policy, but I guess from the article that must have changed. I'd like to know what was behind the odd policy in the first place - it's not like the government were after robot votes. Perhaps robot bribes were going down. I don't expect it will ever come out, but you never know these days. If you have any knowledge of corrupt governments in thrall to robots and their bribes I'd love to hear about it.
that's all from me for now
see you around
