A dose of humour to help survive the ongoing financial, ecological, and humanitarian disasters facing us

It is important to be aware of the terrible things going on around the world, but also to sit back and laugh once in a while ! So many dreadful things are happening every day it is easy just to get lost in a miasma of despair, while drowning in a flood of conflicting, emotionally charged news stories, blogs and reports. This can also lead to confusion because it is easy to lose your own point of view, your own reference position, when submerged by a host of yapping, contradictory opinions spouting from all corners on the net on just about any subject.

It’s in these moments that twisting things around – seeing or inventing the funny side – can help detach you from details you can get lost in, or even protect you from losing your rational judgment of an event by being overcome by emotional factors – remember that an information source truth or factualness has nothing to do with the skill of it’s writers in producing strong emotions in the reader. And strong emotions provoked can change your mental makeup, incrementally altering any solid point of view over time, because strong emotions or sensations always make a more indelible imprint on our minds than rational understanding even if rationality has a better handle on the real world. Your psyche cares a lot more about emotions and sensations than anything happening “out there” in reality. Reality has little to do with it.  Goebbels designed a great propaganda system for Hitler based on these concepts… the USSR and China used similar methods in their education and propaganda systems – and most successful journalists, writers and bloggers use similar techniques to acquire a large audience. This can be great when combined with  a really good source of information, but have terrible consequences when it fills people with illusions.

This is also why politicians continuously try to stimulate the “lower emotions” – their skill in this being totally independent of the worthiness – or lack of the same – of the cause they are promoting.

So what do you do to keep your head in a position where innumerable vested interests are trying to sway you this  way and that ?

You can step back, and make funny – even if you have to resort to absolute cynicism – the most desperate seeming situation – and thus force your intellect to play with your emotions, breaking their toehold and making life difficult for any false certitudes…

I’ve found a very good, fairly irreverent site to visit when all the economic/financial news starts becoming overwhelming: the Borowitz Report

The writer takes companies, people or events from current news stories and writes bogus, fictitious articles that say exactly what didn’t happen, and illustrate via the absurd the collective insanity of our society.

Need a laugh ? Check out these hilarious recent stories:

Are the big medical companies going to be the death of us all ?

With all the current fuss about pandemics, emerging diseases and Big Pharma practices I was quite excited to be present at a health congress recently, where I hoped some nagging little questions I had been asking myself could be answered by the impressive array of doctors, medical universtity deans and pharmaceutical company representatives who attended.

While I was there I confirmed a fair bit of information (and some very worrying conclusions), the most important being:

– The biodiversity of this planet is being reduced every day, with industry, logging, and petrochemicals in the environment destroying more and more species.

– Pathogens in previously highly biodiverse areas are being forced to move onto new hosts or “vector animals” at a faster and faster rate to ensure their own survival, because their traditional hosts are dying off.

– Through massive vaccination programs, our pharmaceutical industry is attempting to completely eradicate many of the diseases that have plagued humans for millenia. These vaccinations are allegedly effective against specific pathogens, with little or no effect on others, and in many cases reduce the human body’s resistance against other diseases.

– When a pathogen dies out, either from biodiversity destruction or eradication via vaccination, another one – often completely unknown – adapts to take it’s place within a very short time.

– Against these new diseases humans have almost no immunity, having never encountered them before.

– Most people’s immune systems are much weaker today than a few decades ago for many reasons: poor nutrient and vitamin supply from food due to processing methods and irradiation for “hygiene”, sedentary or otherwise unhealthy lifestyles, and in many parts of the world, malnutrition or hunger.

–  Even in advanced countries, it is harder and harder to get good quality vitamins and supplements, mostly because of intense daily lobbying efforts from the same food and medecine industry giants that want a monopoly on our health – here’s the latest attempt, by Senator John McCain of all people. Here more of the same in Canada… There is a permanent assault by Big Pharma on the health of every country that never stops, it seems. The vitamins that manage to get sold are usually restricted to tiny, useless doses, or failing that, are synthesised from ingredients that are very poorly assimilated by our bodies. Today it is fairly hard to rebuild a good immune system because of this. If you are told vitamins can be dangerous, laugh and read this. Out of the billions of doses taken, 10 people have died taking vitamins in the US… in 23 years !

So to sum up: in an environment that is already throwing more and more serious pathogens at us, our medical system is doing it’s best to eliminate the pathogens we have acquired defences against, while making no effort to strengthen our natural immunities that are the only protection we have against a multitude of emerging diseases – on the contrary: many of the chemical based medecines we use actually reduce the effectiveness of our own immune systems. This is tantamount to creating the perfect storm, where all it would take is one new virulent disease to wipe our globalised population of the face of this planet. Luckily for us there are always a few survivors even after the worse epidemics…

When I asked a few of the “experts” about this pretty obvious problem, none of them could give me a satisfactory explanation – in fact, it seems that several of these so-called “top notch researchers” had never given the matter any thought, and looked quite worried as they scuttled off to avoid answering…

So the next question is why ? I find it hard to believe that the entire pharmaceutical industry is willfuly plotting the death of the entire human race, with some modern-day Dr. Mabuse at the top pulling the strings of millions of “useful idiot” doctors worldwide in a carefuly orchestrated doomsday plan ! I also find it hard to believe that so many doctors worldwide are so dangerously stupid that the implications of our massively wasteful billion dollar disease eradication programs have passed them by completely…

Add to all this the new breeds of antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” that not only defeat our drugs, but also are acquiring characteristics that allow them to defeat the most healthy people with ease, and we really have a problem.

If a doctor out there can give me a reasonable explanation of this bizarre methodology, I would love to hear it ! I’m not holding my breath, though…

When I compare our medical industry’s methods with other forms of medecine they seem to fare very badly these days except in surgical techniques – For example in Traditional Chinese medecine most of the treatments aim to boost all the natural systems in the body to their peak – from their point of view if a person is healthy and has a strong immune system, he has little to fear from any disease. Quite the opposite approach to the average western drug-dealing doctor strangely enough…

In my case, I haven’t touched a pharmaceutical drug for years and my last vaccination was when I was a baby, but despite travelling all over the world, including into pathogen-rich jungles full of mosquitoes and supposedly very unhealthy third-world countries I am healthier than most people I know. I’m also a smoker, and not impartial to a few beers…

My advice to anyone who wants to keep healthy as long as possible without paying too much attention to the current pandemic hysteria and it’s associated marketing schemes:

– Take organic vitamins, especially C & D3 when the flu is about. Don’t bother with non-organic vitamins – they are virtually useless and can do you harm.

– Take mineral supplements whenever you feel “under the weather” – especially in hot, sweaty environments.

– Drink lots of green tea

– Start practicing one of the many eastern healthy exercise programs. Meditation is a good start but if you have the time practicing Tai Chi a bit every day, or even better Qi Gong, will definitely improve  your health across the board. Either of these techniques will also strengthen your ligaments and joints, and keep your body youthful until a ripe old age if practiced regularly. I know 90 year olds who practice QI Gong 30 minutes a day and can put a 40 year old to shame when it comes to endurance, vitality and alertness. Failing that (it’s not always easy to find a good Qi Gong teacher), regular, long walks in a natural environment do wonders for the mind and body !

– Eat varied foods, and occasionally be excessive on food and drink…

– Once in a while, when you are feeling good about yourself, fast for a day. No food – only liquids and no stimulants or cigarettes !

Picture yourself young and strong, whatever your actual condition – Your aging will slow down.

Cheers, and good health ! May you survive when everyone else drops like flies…

Poison the planet and make the victims pay – Political Ponerology or the genesis of evil

I have been looking into industrial chemicals and their toxicity for some time, and yesterday decided to do a little experiment to check a sneaking suspicion. As usual the whole thing ended up going a lot further…

Poisoning the Planet


I wandered around my house making a list of items picked completely at random from every room, kitchen to bathroom (even including some food, drink, cosmetics, ornaments, gadgets, decorations, gifts; you name it… I then divided the list of objects into two groups: those that were produced by an old traditional method: craftsman, individual or artist on one side – so this included everything from pottery to ornaments, to a cheese, a bottle of wine, hand-made clothes, wooden furniture etc to make list A and then into list B went all the things that were industrially designed and mass produced – this included things like packaged foods, sauces, all cosmetics, cleaning products and soaps, gadgets, computers, “Ikea” style furniture, even carpets. I then took each item on both lists and examined it’s ingredients or components for… toxicity !

After a bit of research and some internet searches I made two more lists: toxic and non-toxic, putting all the items containing plastics that reduce fertility, molecules that damage the brain or nervous system, heavy metals that slowly poison you, etc into one list and all the products that contained virtually no toxins or none at all into the other.

It became shockingly obvious first of all that the list of household items containing nasty ingredients was far longer than the “safe item” list, and secondly, a large number of the items on random list A were non-toxic  whereas every single industrially designed, mass produced item on my random list B was on the “toxic/poisonous” list – every single item contained some form of environmentally unfriendly molecule or health imparing toxin – usually quite a few… Even clingfilm wrap used on supermarket food is not exempt, containing petrochemicals that impair fertility and slowly poison you. The worst item was an old computer stuffed with a scary number of toxic, environmentaly disasterous components, but a lot of cosmetics and bathroom items were pretty high on the list too. It seems that things you put on your skin (especially women, with men being the dogs that they are) every day are pretty nasty; full of petrochemicals that cause nerve & brain damage, cancer, spinal damage, etc.

It’s startling to discover that you are washing your hair and cleaning your teeth with products that are also used as anti-freeze, engine degreasers and solvents !

Now, this is when my blood starts to boil and my “caustic paranoid” analysis system wants to leap into the situation and devour it’s prey !

How come for most of human history people have made things for each other either for trade or some form of community or family service, without having to include enviro-toxins and poisons for free with every product, except on rare occasions when total ignorance was involved – mad hatters and mercury comes to mind, as do Romans and their lead piping ? What has changed in our contemporary society that obliges our globalised, commitee designed, mass produced stuff to be so bad for the environment and ourselves ? Especially as we do not have the excuse of ignorance – most petrochemical or other synthetics and molecules have been studied to death by our military-industrial complex decades ago, and the effects of nearly every one thoroughly understood.

It seems that as every year passes, as more and more of the “old fashioned craftsmen” and their “outdated methods” dissappear, and more small family businesses are replaced by ever-merging, ever huger corporations, the products our society becomes inundated with become more and more toxic and dangerous. The evidence surrounds us and is staggering.

I can think of several reasons:

To start with small local businesses and craftsmen in the vast majority of cases previously had a personal relationship with their customers, so had to take complaints directly. Have you ever tried to complain to Unilever or Nestlé because you think their products are poisoning your kids ? The process isn’t quite as simple as it used to be… Who benefits from the change ? Certainly not the customer.

Add to that the modus operandi of corporate “culture”, where everything revolves around the “bottom line” and while presenting a PR reinforced facade of ethical behaviour for the public, only practice ethics in their business if it is profitable. If it is cheaper – including legal costs if they get caught – to get something done in an unethical or even illegal way, then a big corporation will probably go for it – as long as the bottom line is maintained at all costs. I witnessed this personally years back, working for a branch of Pepsi co. and at another time for Total Fina Elf. Both companies maintained a carefuly smiling facade while getting up to corporate practices of a cynicism and (for Elf) disdain for the rule of law – and human life – that were pretty shocking for me, youngster that I was in the world of internationalised evil. I won’t go into what they were up to here – maybe in another post once I’ve checked with a lawyer. These days they can poison humanity and get away with it, but if you accuse them the wrong way you can get into a lot of trouble !

The reason my blood boils is that fewer and fewer people end up owning more and more of the world every year – in 2008 there were 793 Billionnaires with a combined worth of $ 2,400,000,000,000 – far more than the combined worth of the three billion poorest people on the planet (Forbes) – and these mega rich tend to be the ones owning all these vast globalised industries that produce poisonous products to sell to the rest of us. Not only does this not seem to bother them, but if you look around you find many papers and publications produced over the last 100 years actually advocating the practice in the name of depopulation, or other Malthusian or Fabian ideologies. I think those are just polite pretexts to, as the Dead Kennedys band would put it: Kill, kill, kill the poor !”

Political Ponerology


If you want to push things even further, far from mentioning some conspiracy theory – though they abound – I would encourage everyone to read a highly thought-provoking book – almost mind-blowing – called Political Ponerology by Andrew M. Lobaczewski. This amazing book, suppressed for over 50 years, first by the communists, then the Vatican, and last by Brzezinski himself before eventually breaking out into the light of day is the result of decades of research by a team of Polish scientists on psychopaths and their effect as a group on society. I will go into it in depth in another post – I might even devote a special page to the subject, it’s so important. But for a good list of quotes in the mean time, look here.

It’s not very surprising the Communists, the Vatican and Brzezinski were so worried about a book describing how a certain category of psychopaths were supremely equipped psychologicaly to rise fast to the top positions in society, which they would then dominate, and transform slowly into entire institutions with psychopathic deviant behaviour, despite the fact that psychopaths only represent 4-6% of the population ? And the more repressive and irrational the culture, the more people undergo the stresses and pressures that can “push them over the edge” and make them imitate psychopathic behaviour patterns or “go psycho” themselves. A very viscious circle. Very visible too, these days !

What characterises a psychopath ? Total lack of feeling for another person’s emotions – they seem to lack the part of the brain enabling any form of empathy – this allows them to become pitiless masters of manipulation – a very important aspect of hardcore psychos – and capable of inflicting huge pain, killing or causing many deaths without feeling the slightest guilt or remorse. Most of them don’t even understand the concept of guilt or remorse except as an expoitable weakness in their victims. They also learn early to hide extremely well their lack of empathy by simulating emotions they observe, which gives many of them a great capacity for charm – until you get to know them better, or become a victim to their games. Disturbingly, many psychopaths are completely aware of their condition and resent their small numbers compared to the rest of humanity. Apparently most psychopaths are capable of recognising another psychopath almost instantly. Now that must help with the networking !

A psychopath is either born with cerebral lesions (often congenital), is brain-damaged after birth (accident, chemical exposure, drugs, etc…) or survives extreme physical or psychological pressure (torture, sexual abuse, etc..)by effectively suppressing the most human part of his personality definitively. It seems that when one doesn’t use the parts of the brain related to empathy and emotions for a while, they wither away.

One would think that the top positions of our governments, banks and corporations would be ideal for such deviants, where they can make decisions affecting and manipulating multitudes, order the deaths of huge numbers of people without batting an eyelid, and generally get a rush playing with the lives of the ants… And just getting to that position requires so much back-stabbing ! What fun !

It would also go towards explaining why they decide, out of a vast array of materials and chemicals available, to choose the subtely toxic ones for the mass produced products we use every day. I would like someone to find a better explanation. Even the bottom line argument has it’s limits when you see that some dangerous ingredients of household products actually cost more than their safe counterparts.

The book is compellingly written, the evidence almost irrefutable – even down to brain lesions that are found in extreme psychopaths that also occur in the brains of a certain class of politician or corporate leader, or the documented influence of a psychopath in a position of authority that attracts other psychopaths of a lesser stripe, and even worse, forces normal people in the vicinity to emulate sociopathic behaviour in order to survive. Then you have entire societies run by psychopaths, where sick behaviour becomes the norm enforced by the police and army, who become themselves considerably disturbed through an “entrainment” effect.

Reminds me of a day in the office – in the days when I was in an office.

Remember the Nazis, the Stazi, the Stalinist purges, or the Shah’s regime ? Extreme cases but far from isolated…

The scientists who wrote the book lived through the harshest years of communism, and studied the behaviour and actual brains of many nasty officials and political leaders, as well as a lot of criminals and psychopaths. It is quite frightening when many of the factors used in the book to recognise a psychopathocracy are currently present in many governments around the world, nearly all multinational corporations and in global institutions…

So what happens when you have a bunch of hugely wealthy and powerful psychopaths lording it over the more human majority of the population (we’re not brain damaged, remember ?…).

You just have to open the newspaper to bear witness to the disaster.

One problem psychopathocracies have is that often people are recruited to positions of importance for their psychopathic characteristics and not their actual talent at whatever they are supposed to be doing, which leads to huge inefficiency and irrational, often dangerous situations for the multitudes of citizens unlucky enough to bear the brunt of their decisions.

Terrorism ? Global Warming ? Epidemics ? These pose minimal danger compared to the daily activities of psychopaths in power that happily play the games that start the wars, financial collapses and other societal disasters that effect our lives irreversibly. Not to mention the permanent psychological damage caused to entire populations by their depredations. They are really laughing at getting the general populace to pay for their environmental damage, financial and social parasitism, and genocidal wars. We ignorantly foot the bill every time…

In the same way you judge a tree by it’s fruits, you can judge a society by it’s products.

I think we should have mandatory testing for psychopathic tendencies for everyone in any kind of position of authority. Some very good tests exist – lie detectors do not work on a psychopath. Until that is done, there is a daily growing movement around the world that will point out their every abuse, manipulation or mistake on every kind of media until the situation becomes clear for enough people to change it.

And who knows, just doing that might change the world.

Healthy food will be made illegal on December 31, 2009

As part of their worldwide power grab and multi-spectrum assault on humanity at the behest of our lovely benevolent global elites, the NGO mammoths – unfortunately far from extinction – WHO and UN created the “Codex Alimentarius Commision” in 1963, in order to ensure the worldwide implementation and policing of universal diet control. Like many other organisations that have almost no oversight (except sometimes by other NGO’s or foundations with vested interests and no oversight themselves) big business took over shortly after the right players were put in control of the commission, and the Codex Alimentarius (CA) guidelines rapidly became a really nasty set of rules favouring corporate profits over the wellbeing of the masses – in fact going so far as proposing rules that will guarantee bad health for all to keep big Pharma happy ! The Codex will be implemented worldwide (at least, in 180 odd countries) on December 31, 2009 unless there is enough legal resistance from the many concerned professionals.

I’ve been reading up on this for a while – there is plenty of info out there because so many nutritionists and therapists of all stripes are utterly flabergasted about the sheer gall these NGOs have in dictating insane behaviour to the world that will – with absolute certainty – reduce significantly the health of the entire human race while benefitting hugely big Pharma and GM food giants.

Here is a good summary of the situation:

I encourage everyone to do their own research on this…

Nutrients classified as toxins ??? Vitamins and minerals removed from food ??? Information on nutrition to be suppressed ??? Irradiation for all foods not locally grown ??? Mandated growth hormone for all cows worldwide ??? Vitamin supplements to be legally limited to tiny ineffective doses… Excuse me, but WTF is this madness ?????

If they had passed this law a few years ago, I would probably be dead, because I survived catching SARS by using massive doses of organic vitamin C (and a bit of vitamin D alongside); in fact I have recovered from 95% of my health problems over my life by boosting my immune system one way or another using healthy means – not any form of chemical medecine.

Many of the directives of CA ban any possibility – actually make it illegal in most cases – of taking care of one’s own health and enforce the synthetic molecular solutions of the pharmaceutical groups while effectively banning a whole bushel of healthy solutions. I’m not at all against people taking chemical medecine when they have a life-threatening disease, but people should be warned that in traditional chinese medecine diagnostics we have found that every synthetic molecule that enters a person affects negatively the liver and kidneys and lowers fertility over time, whatever other effects it has. And there are many, many natural solutions to most ailments out there for anyone willing to do a bit of research.

Well I guess anyone who didn’t believe in the capacity for such organisations to promulgate pure evil will wake up and smell the coffee this time – if the mainstream media actually ends up telling anyone anything truthful about it.

I find it remarkable how a similar modus operandi seems to apply to most of the areas of human need. A “high and mighty” NGO steps in to “help the needy” in whatever area, thus filling a space that sincerely benevolent individuals might have otherwise occupied – and done some real good – and immediately proceeds to be as inefficient and damaging as possible in whatever area they have injected themselves into with a maximum public display of arrogance and the “moral high ground” to provide a smokescreen. I’ve run into NGOs big and small, all over the world and it seems the only 100% honest devoted ones are the kind set up by naive university students – I’ve worked with a few of them and they are easily many times more efficient , cost effective and useful than the big boys despite having tiny ressources. I’ve caught out the others doing everything from fraud and kickbacks to government to eliminate private competition (a lot of that in Asia), to prostitution and human trafficking (remember the UN prostitution rings in ex-yugoslavia ?)

I’ll post in more detail about NGO corruption sometime – it’s not edifying and people should know what these gangs are up to. They include the World Bank and IMF…

I might add that in the contemporary world, NGO’s have more lobbying power on our governments than any amount of voters, and by pretending to represent other people’s interests have an impact on legislation and government action that completely bypasses the democratic process.

People have been conditioned into believing NGOs are good, independant, apolitical bodies when nothing could be farther from the truth. They are often merely fronts for the vested interests of huge foundations, financial groups or wealthy clans. I have sat at a “Save the Children” auction gala dinner in Hong Kong with all the rich and famous clique where manifestly most of the money donated by good caring people went into paying for an absolutely lavish gourmet feast with the finest wines and foods in one of the most expensive venues in HK, for the organisers, their cronies and all their friends. They even hired expensive actors to pretend to be their “humanitarian workers” and spew emotionaly charged stories about the poor children of Africa hoping to raise more money for their parties. Needless to say, it didn’t go down very well when, sitting at a delicacy-laden table with the organisers, I mentioned that any money I wanted to donate would be used more effectively by me buying a plane ticket to a troubled third world country and giving cash directly to the people who would use it in the best way. The return trip would waste a lot less money than their so-called “infrastructure” and maybe more than 2% of the money might end up spent on the poor people it was intended for…

As a final note, I would like to mention two NGOs that are responsible for more deaths this century than just about any other organisation: the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) that most Americans mistakenly think is part of their government, and  the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) that guides British foreign policy.

And people wonder why voting never changes anything….

An amazing massage experience

The other day I was briefly transformed into a musical instrument in a pretty unusual set of circumstances.

I was in a little side street of a backwater town of a mostly ignored little country in South East Asia, and went into a tiny establishment advertising modestly on a small billboard outside various cures using asian massage medical techniques. It had taken quite a bit of searching to find the place – 3 years on and off I had been looking – but here, via some rather unlikely individuals, I was.

The woman inside – who wouldn’t want me to qualify her as a doctor – spoke a little bit of English, but it scarcely seemed to matter; she radiated such an aura of gentleness and personal happiness as she answered my questions simply, I was pretty awestruck with what I can only describe as sheer positive energy that litterally shone out of her, while I sat in her spartan office with meditative asian music sofly playing in the background.

Beforehand I had learned that she studdied massage and medecine under a Vietnamese master, and then travelled to neighbouring countries to learn their techniques while practising in each country she visited. I had also learned that she was passionate about her art, and had helped out a surprising number of people. This fit in with exactly what I was looking for both for professional and personal reasons, and it was under the effects of a bit of stage fright that I mentioned my various ailments and told her to do her worst, with time not a consideration.

I’ve been lucky enough to experience the talents of a few expert asian healers over time, and know that it can be a transformative experience, but also a painful or uncomfortable one, but here I felt pretty good about the whole thing. I saw the previous patient leave beaming radiantly at the universe, which probably helped along with the doctor’s angel-like demeanor.

She started out with a series of massage techniques that got me relaxed and feeling good, and got a kink out of my neck and and lower back effortlessly with me barely registering it, but that was just the warm up. She then rips open a sealed packet and produces a small object that looked like a tiny hammer, with one end covered in tiny needles in a pattern. I had seen a similar hammer before – in chinese medicine the famous “prune tree flower hammer”, so named because of the rows of tiny needles on the hammer head that form a star like flower pattern, that gives it the appearance of an obscure torture device – which it is definately not. These needles penetrate just the surface of the skin as it is tapped very quickly and lightly, usually over a series of accupuncture points to achieve various results depending on the points and what else is being done to the patient.

In my case, she  starts drumming on my lower back each side of my spine softly with the hammer while alternating hammer touches – just strong enough to feel the impact – with firm and decisive pressure on various other points to the left and right, each touch feeling like her finger sunk into a well that opened between my muscles and tendons, while strangely each time leaving a sensation of sealing something when her fingers left my back. I  have never felt something quite like that, her movements so rapid that after a while they faded into a knitting sensation, as though my back was a frayed piece of wool she was reassembling. I realised with a bit of a shock after a few minutes that every touch with her hammer and fingers was perfectly in sync with the asian string instrument that had been twanging away in the background, tracing a complex harmonic of notes into my back as if playing a human xylophone. One hammer touch leaving a slightly tingling feeling, follower by several finger pressures on different points in succession rapidly, then another hammer touch before more finger pressures in time with the music that made my back feel like a flute being played allegro by some joyous skipping piper.

But stranger was to come: after a good while, it must of been twenty minutes “under the hammer”, when I was in such a completely receptive, relaxed state that I had become part of the massage table, an impression of warmth starting somewhere in my kidneys gradually spread to the surface, and the tiniest muscles and tendons of my back started moving of their own accord, jumping and rippling in response to every touch she made. as though they had decide to leave me to it and follow the piper’s every note. The feeling was incredible but unfortunately after a few more moments I either passed out or fell asleep. When I woke up she was still weaving her pattern, and my dorsal muscles were still doing their tiny repetetive movements in a circle clenching and unclenching around my spine of their own accord. After a while she unwound slowly the complex rythm, told me to sit there for a while and not do anything: it was important I didn’t sweat for the next ten minutes – the day was quite hot. I felt pretty amazing straight off while we chatted about a little project I want her to participate in (which I’m happy to say she agreed to with her glowing enthusiasm), eventually walked out in a bit of a daze and then over the next 48 hours felt very alive, with a back pain that has haunted me for the last two years transformed into a vague memory.

Epilogue: It’s now a week later and my back hasn’t felt this good for years !  It feels almost as good as it was years ago when I used to work on martial arts three to nine hours a day ! I will not give more details on her here, but will if someone interested in her services contacts me nicely by email – It’s in the comments on the “About” section of my blog

Sex, booze…. and government grants

As a small example of the differences of perception between the East and the West here is the kind of story that would be the joke of the month in Asia if any newspaper dared publish it. It’s already silly enough as it is but I’ll explain what the Asian take on it would be:

http://www.cnsnews.com/public/content/article.aspx?RsrcID=47976

So you thought that was ridiculous ?

If the Chinese government (or any other Asian institution) dared to fund a project with this kind of set up people would be crying “corruption !”, “aiding and abetting ciminals !”; “financing the Triads !” “institutional cronyism !” etc…

Not to mention “scandalous waste of public money !”

And here’s why:

In China 99% of prostitution is run by the Triads (asian mafias). A great majority of the “commercial sex venues” are also run by the Triads. The “gatekeepers” mentioned in the article (a lovely politicaly correct word for “pimps”) are also usually Triads, or join pretty fast if they don’t want to end up trying to swim out of a river with a truck axle tied to their feet or be chopped into a thousand pieces with meat cleavers (called the “thousand cuts” punishment – charming !)

So what the NIAA is doing here is effectively giving researchers tax payers money for several years in a row to hang around in seedy – but expensive – Karaoke bars with prostitutes while obviously buying drinks and “other services” from the establishment – “Field observation”  they call it… Having been dragged into a few myself in the past by Asian businessmen I can guarantee that you do not get into these places without spending some money, even if you are a five star PLA general – In fact as a member of an institution you would be expected to spend more or “da boyz” might throw you out. In addition, time is money for Triads, so spending time with any girl(s), whether for filling out a questionnaire, a chat or any sexual fantasy that happens to be going through your head, costs money.

So 95% of the money spent in these places by the “researchers” will end up in Triad hands.

In addition to that, if the girls drink it is for several reasons:

1/ They get a cut on every drink bought for them by a customer. No amount of education will stop this happening; for a lot of them “lady drink” money is half or more of their income.

2/ For the younger, inexperienced girls drinking helps to break down their inhibitions, allowing them to attract custom more easily – and forget all the nasty experiences they could have…

3/ The older girls are often alcoholics for the previous two reasons.

So could a government program change anything ? Not no. 1 because the girl’s income depends on it. Not no. 2 because it’s a psychological necessity – unless the US government want’s to give all prostitutes a free supply of Rohypnol, Gamma Hydroxy Butyrate (GHB) or Ketamine Hydrochloride (all date rape drugs) – but that wouldn’t be very ethical if you ask me… And not no. 3 because the best way to change those girls habits is to get them off “the game” and back into their familes or into rehab ! But we wouldn’t want that – the “researchers” would be out of a job and might have to actually do something productive… and the Chinese government certainly wouldn’t want meddling Americans damaging their tourist trade !

And if you think all that is nuts, read the report on the 400,000 $ being spent by the american NIH on researching the links between gay sex and alcohol on bars in Argentina (!):

After all, in this day and age, we have nothing better to blow large amounts of money on after all !

Maybe these are all just bogus programs designed to compensate government employees for “services rendered” with exotic holidays far from tax payer scrutiny… It does make one wonder !

Are we paranoid enough ? – Killer RFID chips

Dr. No would love this one: a Saudi inventor has invented an RFID chip that can be impanted in humans to track their wherabouts anywhere in the world, and kill them instantly through diffusion of a poison if needed.

Sounds perfect for a bunch of uses – I’m sure secret services, mafia organisations, terrorist groups and crackpot dictators are drooling over it as we speak !

Just think of the advantages for any institution desiring absolute loyalty in it’s underlings.

Hostage taking would become much easier too: just inject the victims and if anyone comes to rescue them they’re toast !

As for terrorists, if they are not quite sure of the fanaticism of their human bomb, they just have to tell him he’ll die anyway if his bomb doesn’t go off at the right time – don’t be late !

Stifling dissent ? Easy: just inject the politically incorrect and if they say a word out of line press the button ! In fact, all citizens should be implanted at birth without their knowledge just in case they turn into “terrorists”. Slip a chip in with all those vaccinations – no-one would notice. Even if they did, tell them it’s their caring government that just wants to observe their health for their own good of course…

Remember those hypo dart rifles used in zoos and nature reserves ? Well, if you want to blackmail someone how about adding a chip to  a dart ?

Hmm, in the perfect world, we could have implanted schoolchildren suddenly taking truancy VERY seriously. As for those dangerous mental patients escaping all the time… we can put a definitive stop to that !

No, really, the most extreme conspiracy theorists just haven’t got enough imagination ! To think people weren’t even believing the possibility of microchipping humans not so long ago…
