We have passed the absurdity horizon and are now fast approaching the singularity. The place where everything is going to kill us unless we live naked in the trees and eat bark.
I wonder if it has happened before? Maybe there was an earlier human civilisation that was also infested with the Puritans. Those Puritans would have convinced everyone to kill all those who disagreed with their views and then returned to living naked in trees after totally dismantling their world and scuttling the Libertarian sea-city, Atlantis.
Eventually we returned to civilisation, and now the cycle begins again. It’s a theory some of those with really, really big tinfoil hats have actually put forward and yet… and yet Common Purpose was a tinfoil-hatter until only a couple of years ago. Now they are on YouTube, with the amateurishly exaggerated body-language of that Middleton woman waving all over your screen. Yes, she is trying subliminal control but she’s shit at it. That’s why all her graduates are being found out now and will all be lynched eventually.
A lot of the things David Icke talked about years ago (but not the lizards) have happened. The tracking of everyone through their mobile phones was tinfoil-hattery until it was proved to have been happening for years. All that NSA monitoring was just paranoia until it all came out as true.
We used to have science. We ripped it out of alchemy and turned it into something that made sense. We took the old wives’ remedies and made modern medicine (mouldy bread poultices are still poo-poohed by modern medicine even after the discovery of penicillin – which comes from the same mould, Penicillium notatum). We don’t have either of those things any more.
Instead we have a version of science that is far less credible than alchemy. A version that is paid to prove pre-written conclusions. Even alchemy didn’t stoop that low.
Medicine no longer seeks to cure but to control. Medics now think that if everyone lives as they direct, nobody will get ill and they’ll be well paid for doing nothing useful at all (at the top, they already are). Unfortunately their directions are based on made-up rubbish and guesses, so it won’t work. Really, you’d be better off if a guy in a wooden mask shook a gourd at you these days. He at least has the placebo effect on his side. That requires the patient to believe in the power of the witchdoctor. Nobody believes in doctors any more.
The singularity is closer. Can you see it, Righteous? No, because it has infinite mass but zero dimensions. You will not know you’ve arrived until it crushes you to quarks. Your only clue is the quantum foam of increasingly random nonsense that surrounds you.
So now we have a pronouncement that orange juice is bad for you, after years of being told it’s full of Vitamin C and good for you. How much madder can it get?
How about Greenpeace starting a scare on children’s clothes that contain harmless trace amounts of chemicals? Could such madness really happen? It already has.
…a research report titled ‘A little story about the monsters in your closet’, which was published today.
That is not the title of any research report. If Exeter University really published with that title they should renounce university status and re-register as a publisher of comics. That is the bottom of the barrel as far as science goes. An actual embarrassment to all of science. Even as the title of a fictional tale about closet-monsters it is utter rubbish, as a title for any kind of serious science it is the final nail in the coffin of credibility.
They found nothing. Nothing dangerous at all. Triivial trace quantities of things that might be harmful at far higher levels. Some findings are derisory.
The tests ound phthalates, which are used to soften plastics, in many products.
Let’s have a guess. In products made of flexible plastics, perhaps? In other words, exactly where you would expect to find them.
Fungicide chemicals, known as organotoxins, were found in socks, shoes and sports clothes.
Exposure at high levels can harm the immune and nervous systems.
Those fungicides are there on purpose. They are to stop you getting fungal skin infections while you are all sweaty and nasty. You can take them out and get ringworm and athlete’s foot all the time if you prefer. Sure, high levels can harm you but they didn’t have high levels, did they? They had levels harmful to fungi, not to humans. And they are not known as organotoxins. They are known as fungicides. ‘Organotoxin’ is a ridiculous made-up word that covers anything harmful to anything organic and it includes antibiotics as well as bleach. I wish I believed in a permanently enraged and vengeful God who I could call down on these half-witted idiots. Then again, I wish that every day at work too. If I was in Exeter now I’d be actively trying to summon that god – and I bet some of these idiots’ co-workers already are. Pray for their success. It can’t hurt.
The whole article, the report it came from, and the sham scientists who wrote it are a huge joke. Part of the absurdity that is only to be expected this close to the Stupidity Singularity where the moronic pronouncements reach an infinite incredibility and have zero relation to reality.
I note, in passing, that Greenpeace didn’t test any Russian clothing… funny, that.
