Dr who returned to our screens with season 9, and of course everyones “favourite” doctor, peter capaldi who has been commented by many people as reasons they have stopped watching the show. On top of his breaking of the fourth wall to explain a plot last season, and constantly insisting he’s cool and things he does are cool just like a dad trying to insist to his children he’s actually cool he has now gone on to break one of the majorly established elements of being a doctor.

The doctor has always had his big blue box, the tardis trapped in the guise of an old telephone box despite the fact that this is irrelevant pretty much everywhere in the universe and space time. However he has also had for some time, and especially through every incarnation of the new season his sonic screwdriver in various forms, changing this to another form of sonic was acceptable however removing the screwdriver aspect and turning them into a pair of sunglasses is about as cool as those pathetic slatted sunglasses or wearing 3d glasses in the 80/90′s and also breaks one of the main characteristics of being the doctor, changing from a sonic screwdriver is essentially the same as changing the form of the tardis from an old telephone box, especially to something as stupid and douchey as a pair of sunglasses, it’s almost as though he’s trying too hard to insist he’s cool when sunglasses aren’t really cool fashion and haven’t been for a long time, sure they’re effective for blocking the suns rays and good for helping you see in bright light, but as a fashion accessory they’re rather stupid and as a sonic tool quite stupid considering how much harder it is to put on a pair of sunglasses in order to activate something.

Perhaps had he simply kept them as an additional tool for seeing things possibly it would have been fine, but to remove the screwdriver because he doesn’t want to be seen waving a magic wand essentially around is just silly in my opinion. Let’s face it holding out the sonic screwdriver and pointing it at something or holding it up like a sword ready to use at enemies is far more impressive visually than someone putting glasses on and putting their hand to their head.

This isn’t the only fault with season 9 however, additional problems come on the fundamental plot-lines which are reminiscent of 60′s batman serials, where every episode is essentially a two parter, and for the majority either the doctor or his companions, or in the case of last week pretty much the entire of the uk were dead, and stay tuned for next week to see how what happened at the end of the episode or in the teaser doesn’t actually happen and how he’s actually alive, the world is safe and nobody was actually ever in any danger as expressed in the end scenes.

The world is currently in jeopardy, the uk has been replaced with an army of shape-shifting aliens, which actually may have turned the humans into their form as they are constantly requesting for the truth to come out and for them to have their planet and their life back (whoops is that potential spoilers, I’m no insider but that’s the obvious solution, with the feared box perhaps being the key to the transformations and to put everything right) Will it be down to the doctor escaping from a plane about to be exploded by a heat seeking missile, probably using teleportation technology held by the dr who fangirl who wears nods to his past live’s outfits and keeps photo’s of them within unit on the walls as easter eggs to see.

Maisie williams was introduced as a new immortal in the only episode to not have anyone dead at the end, sure masie died but he implanted her with a chip to make her live forever much like captain jack harkness, and the teaser there was that she would live to see the annihilation of the entire world with what appeared to be a nuclear explosion behind her. This would hint along with word that was spread that torchwood would be returned that she may be the new leader of a torchwood team for her own series, put this together with the world jeopardy and unit being destroyed the perfect opportunity for her to step in from her established position of watching over the doctor (shown during a photograph in the end of an episode with her watching behind him in a previous plot)

With the doctors sidekick deemed to be cocooned, although she could easily be infiltrating pretending to be the alien in order to foil their plot and the doctor in trouble it could come down to masie to save the day with torchwood, possibly saving the doctor then stepping in to help take back the world and prepare to launch a season of torchwood during the doctor who season break. If they do not bring masie in to do torchwood it does feel like a missed opportunity having established her as a pseudo jack, another immortal to live forever but follow the timeline never to time travel and be stuck on earth in the perfect position to defend them, having established this would prevent her going insane in her previous plotlines.

I personally think the whole everyone’s dead, oh wait they’re not dead, oh we broke the established rules of what happens when the tardis explodes but that didn’t happen, on next weeks episode we never really destroyed it bullshit rather boring and predictable and seemingly inflating deliberately false plotlines. All of this is so old fashioned and pathetic and likely to destroy the entire franchise, I would like it to go back to how it had been, with intricate well woven plots along with individual episodes that wouldn’t necessarily tie together and never having this falsely implied death principle repeating over and over every single time.

Using it on the first episode fine, but now it’s been used 4 times over this season it’s dead and buried, and don’t bring it back alive next week this is one thing you should leave dead in the ground and get on with actually writing some good episodes before you kill the entire franchise. Also get rid of the sonic sunglasses they’re as offensive as if you change the tardis to a portaloo, he might as well be flying around space time in a turdis with his douche glasses and a sonic e-cigarette with weed in to provide all the aliens a sonic e-toke and mellow them out so the only thing they wish to exterminate is the contents of the fridge… in their stomach. At least an E-spliff would be more impressive than sonic sunglasses.

I like dr who a lot, and I gave the new doctor his chance but he’s gotten progressively worse, I know it’s established he’s meant to become the enemy of the universe, but that’s meant to be in show, he’s not meant to be destroyer of the franchise, just destroyer of worlds.

Happy Back To The Future Day, to celebrate I go into a little information about why hoverboard’s don’t exist due to Marty Mcfly’s meddling in the film where he prevents himself getting into a car accident thus changing the future forever.

In the original timeline Mcfly crashes and the future plays out, other cars and people are involved in that crash, simply by avoiding that crash he not only alters his own future but their future’s as well, and who is to say that this accident wasn’t the trigger for some greater event, that by crashing the car the people or families of those people didn’t invent flying cars in order to avoid dangers on the roads and make driving essentially safer, and who is to say that this didn’t lead to hoverboards being adapted from the very same flying technology to adapt it into a fun toy for kids (as natural business opportunists would) and who is to say that technologies used to treat those in the accident didn’t lead to the cybernetic enhancements on the future tannon? Along with the fashion which may have adapted from a simple safety accessory because hoverboards don’t work in water and having inflating self drying clothes may have become convenient!

Simply put by stopping and not crashing to save his own future marty mcfly may have robbed us all of the opportunity to ride on a hoverboard today.

Also I talk about how people are saying the prime minister should talk to china about human rights abuses but clearly he won’t as he wished to remove the human rights act for our country, so why would he care for any human rights?

Lastly I talk about life and a few other things, and use a clip from black honeys performance showing where izzy spotted me at reading 2015 (after I told her I’d be at leeds but got changed, so surprised her, just because I wanted to include that clip) Full video where the clip was taken from >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DRm7uerP_c

With the steam controller due for release in early 2015 I wanted to have a closer look at what was known about the controller and how it and the steambox with steamOS could impact the marketplace for determining which operating system people choose for thier personal computer systems.

I personally question how the trackpads would operate, because with gaming set up primarilly for use with dual sticks, using swiping actions could become increasingly difficult with many playstyles, and if they have a zone further than the direct center which operates as a click of a button, and how sensitive trackpads are wether this would create further difficulties and alienate players who might get caught up in the action and be a little heavier handed.

One question I forgot to cover is wether or not the pad itself will operate truly as an xbox 360 controller on games which are programmed only to work if they detect an xbox pad directly plugged into the computer, this is a vital question because my previous venom gamepad was on the most part the same control inputs as an xbox 360 gamepad with only one axis on the right stick being incorrect, however this resulted in being unable to play many games as they looked natively for the 360 pad and if this wasn’t present they would not allow the use of a controller in any way shape or form, and you could only then use it via joy2key.

The gamepad itself does come with a native version of joy2key in that it maps to a set of keyboard controls so it can be compatible with games that don’t allow for gamepads and also those with which it wouldn’t be fully compatible, however some games and in particular multiplayer games this could be increasingly problematic, especially if the gamepad does not work in the same way as the xbox controller in that it would port to one of 4 seperate control schemes and wavelengths so everyone had thier own input and could play locally together.

I think it would be a requirement that it enable at least 4 players locally to have thier own control pads for some multiplayer games if it wishes to truly take on other gamepads on the market and be established as a commonly used peripheral. Some paths to the market would be to sell it alongside valve games in the local stores, but considering they haven’t released anything in a while other than free2play content this would be difficult, and wether microsoft games would continue to only support the xbox 360 gamepad when ported to the pc and deliberately alienate the product so it is a useless peripheral or not would cause problems

I hope to be able to get my hands on a steam control pad myself soon so I can put it through some proper testing, and ideally two in order to assess local co-op play also.

Stay tuned to find out.

Also in the video I talk about the steamOS being linux and how this could change the market for operating systems and how the new generation of consoles allow for half life 3 due to the new engines being used to develop games rather than the old source engine most previous valve games were based upon, and how they could also impliment the free2play version of half3life deathmatch in order to continue that monetisation scheme with free to play skins and models for sale and even a plethora of boxes to sell.

With mixed reviews from critics and viewers I decided to give my opinions on the latest season of doctor who and how everything fits into the existing timeline as set out in the previous seasons, how his regeneration works and why the doctor behaves as he presently does.

Following on from the silence timeline the current regeneration is essentially a blank slate with clara having erased all knowledge of the doctor from history which leads to the inevitable confrontation at river song’s birth in which the doctor is known to be the enemy of the universe and a soldier, the previous season attempted to throw people off with the implimentation of john hurt as a soldier incarnation, however this was already a past regeneration and not the one in question on the timeline, also the whole plot of losing gallifrey is a little silly because they know it exists in the pocket dimension inside the painting itself, and even visited it during that episode.

All of this aside there were some other potential flaws in the writing in where matt smith had began a regeneration cycle on the beach where the silence’s plan to eliminate him culminates in a fixed point where river succeeds, however because of her love for him she decides to give up all of her regenerations to save him, this could have been done in such a manner that already overwrote the 13 lives issue, having provided all of her regeneration energy. Instead though they decided that as she was “dying” in the future anyway that it didn’t matter, but also to provide an alternative method of providing further life to the doctor with the timelord race itself providing energy through a crack on trensalore to help him to regenerate anew.

Hints towards the conclusion at river’s birth were given in this final episode of the last season where he meets the young soldiers that inevitably meet him there, and how the silence from that day vow to eliminate the doctor, which is a timeline that has already passed, as such wibby wobbly nature of time and plots.

Furthermore there are many unexplored themes in the series such as river marrying the doctor who clicks his fingers and the tardis responds as second nature, not just experimentation as previous doctors have done. Also a future doctor still has to provide river with his sonic and associated memory storing device in order to save her to the computer, so this is yet to happen in the series thus showing the doctor always lived beyond trensalore.

In order to correct potential paradoxes you will notice that clara is travelling to her existences through spacetime, she has interfaced with the brain of the dalek in the episode where they travel inside, inevitably she will end up back in the victorian era yet again, perhaps at a point where she loses her mind and ends up abandonned in the past, or at least pretends not to know the doctor so as to maintain continuity.

Lastly you will note that “missy” keeps appearing in a garden of eden place much like that of the computer in which river is stored in the library of the Vashta Nerada, and although these individuals have died they can still be saved in much the same way that river was saved, with hidden memory storage devices that can be collected later, and obviousely dropped off in time discreetly without the doctor noticing. To the individual involved they will die and awake inside the computer, and this can even pass to those who were killed by the brain sucking monster, thier body died but thier brain could have been saved and backed up prior to this.

So how does the doctor free these people, well given that the doctor and river are travelling at opposite ends of the spectrum, and she knew the first day he met her and didn’t recognise her she would die it would be a given that the same would happen where he would meet her and the first instance where he meets river and she doesn’t recognise him would be the day he knows he is going to die, and at this point being smart he would realise he has the opportunity to harness his regeneration energy and feed it into the computer to free river and the others, either by entering it himself entirely or just linking to it and running his energy through it and into the teleporter system to restore those who didn’t have bodies giving up some of his own regeneration energy.

At this point river should explain how he cannot regenerate in his current nature, as a soldier as he doesn’t stand for what the doctor stands for, and a healer of time while he stands for death and not caring about saving each and every individual whatever thier race and the idealism that comes naturally from the doctor, and provide him the opportunity to travel through time and save everyone he let down himself in the same way he saved her allowing the next regeneration to truly be a rebirth of the doctor.

Why missy though, well simply put the computer is able to rewrite the programming of people, within the computer river would be able to be restored as a timelord with all of her regenerations, and she could choose to regenerate anew inside the computer, and also when reborn out of the computer to also have a new start with the doctor both now travelling through time in the same direction together.

These are just my theories and idea’s, and fit the timeline and current events rather well wether or not this is how things progress will remain to be seen, but it makes sense that the current doctor would behave as he is doing given the timeline and established continuency of time from previous events.

It should also be noted that peter capaldi’s eyes appear in the day of the doctor episode when they state “13 doctors” during the transportation of gallifrey from the space time continuum into a painting, so obviousely he would have to return to that point to collect it, and obviousely he would be the safeguarder of the painting. This is also an inevitable spoiler that he already would survive beyond the battle of trensalore, which was already shown in other ways but this particular way is the biggest spoiler considering he has already regenerated beyond it at that point. Wether or not this has an influence on gallifrey offering up extra regenerations to him remains to be seen, but he could influence them considering without him being there to save them they wouldn’t survive in the pocket universe.



Many people seem to think the world is going to end in 2012 so I address some of this in the video and state that perhaps it should mean simply the end of the world as we know it, and that we can all start to make a difference to make things better I mean if you look at how consumerism is failing and all of the big corporations are suffering I do believe its time for something to change.

In this episode I pose my theories on portal 2 and how it could follow on from portal 1, bearing in mind I havent played portal 2 at this point, and also pose my theories on how it all links into the half life universe along with the consequences of portal being so popular that it has split off from half life.

Okay so many scientists believe that time is equal to the speed of light and that if you travel faster than light then you will travel back in time, I believe that this is a deeply flawed statement.  In fact I now believe that time itself is created at a fixed point in the universe where the big bang origonated, and time eminates from this point.

This theory is one of my more contraversial ones in that time is in fact relative to the movement of every atom in the universe and without time there would in fact be no movement, and the ability to move is only possible due to the fact that time is being created and as this happens we are able to move.  Of course this theory would make it next to impossible to reverse time as you would be required to be able to contract the universe and also reverse the direction of every single atom in its movements at the exact same time.  This of course does allow for a device that would enable matter to be excluded from the timeline so that it could pass safely into the future without ageing, as if you could create a device that closes off everything in the universe including time it would in effect create its own frozen bubble of spacetime, of course with this there would be the problem that there would be no window to see into this box and that no signals would be able to penetrate inside (as if anything can penetrate obviousely time can still penetrate) so in effect you would be creating a schrodingers cat situation, where the state of the item inside is not known until the box is opened, the box could either be empty or full and the person inside could be frozen from time or ageing, and in fact could be dead or alive.

Why do I believe that time in fact moves faster than light, it is fairly simple really because in fact the universe moves faster than light, it expands at a rate faster than light, and I believe that the speed of time would correspond to the rate at which the universe expands because as more time is created the universe expands, this would also leave the ability to exactly age the universe open to anyone who could determine the furthest point from the center of the universe, this would be the oldest point containing the most complex life forms and matter from the early universe, and towards the center would be new matter and the youngest point of the universe as more time is created the universe expands further.  If I had the ability to measure the expansion rate of the universe of course I could tell you the formula for calculating the speed of time but as I lack both a science lab and the equipment to do this all I can provide at this point is a simple theory.  This theory of course would be proved correct when scientists working on bending light in a fruitless attempt at time travel fail as it would be clear that time travels faster than light, or of course you could find a way of sealing off a room from every aspect of light both seen and unseen, and this would be a far simpler method of showing that time is not able to be transversed by bending light as if you seal off a room so fully that light does not travel, of course to a degree that time and other atoms might as it could be concieved that accidental sealing of time could occur, but at the level where all known light cannot travel through and if objects inside still age then simply by manipulating light you cannot travel through time.

There is of course the possibility that an object could travel faster than time itself but the forces acting upon an object travelling at such a velocity would be inconcievably high that I believe you would either require a level of shielding far beyond anything even theoretically possible these days or that simply any objects travelling that fast would be obliterated in the process and not even dust would survive.

For years people have thought the tongue could only taste sweet, sour, bitter and saltyness, and some people even believe that you cannot taste anything and that your entire sense of taste is based on your sense of smell, recently they added the 5th thing which is savouriness, of course his is still not entirely categorising senses known to be tasteable on the tongue, much like the human body having more than the 5 senses people believe, I think people should be taught the correct things in school so everyone knows, as you can also taste the spicyness of food, the metallicness, the fattyness, dryness (tannin), coolness (like menthol), and I am sure there are more, as for senses other than touch, sight, smell, hearing and taste there are things like pain and heat to name some basic senses, you dont need to know them all, just know that they exist because it seems we’re in the dark ages of the elements of earth fire wind and water in comparison, because as we all know now theres a whole periodic table of elements beyond the basic four that use to be believed in.

In recent years it has become much more publicly known that one of Saturn’s moons known as titan has an atmosphere very similar to our own which would mean a breathable climate and conditions that could support our life. Of course I found out about this before it was made much more publicly known through the news statement of a probe being launched to see if there was any land or if it was entirely a water based planet.

How I discovered the breathable planet (although technically it is a moon as it orbits the planet Saturn) was due to not being able to complete a computer game on the amiga 500+ there was a game called battletech and I got to a stage where there was an underground map and the game gave no clues what to do whatsoever, and you were able to select and unselect planets in a solar system as the planet you were on was in danger, so I presumed you would have to map a route for finding another planet capable of supporting human life, so I went to the school library and began searching planetary books for some form of planets capable of supporting life that might have been included in the game, of course all the names of things in the game were under older names and more mythological names as the sun was known as sol and earth was terra. Either way my research there proved unhelpful, however it was when looking up planets I noticed that the elements in the air and atmosphere were very similar to our own, and although smaller it would be capable of supporting life.

With this knowledge I started talking to people around me and nobody whatsoever believed me that it was capable of supporting life as they believed if it was possible it would be much more widely known, of course in future years it did become much more widely known. However I am sure that the probe that was launched should have reached the moon by now as it was supposed to take 7 years and it would have been there by now however I have not heard anything since, did something go wrong or are they withholding the knowledge again (as its not beyond this government to hide things away for years)


This is also a reason I believe that the artificial islands we have on our planet were created for, as a test to see if we could create an island on a water based system that would survive and not erode, it would be ideal for creating land if there was none on titan in order to be able to colonise the planet/moon. What they would need to consider of course is that such a move would not match circumstances precisely, tidal forces on an entirely water based planet would be higher, and with the various gravitational forces of the sun, Saturn (which would be very strong due to its proximity) and Saturn’s other moons and rings, the islands may not naturally survive. Of course there would be a number of options for making the moon more hospitable.

Another thing that would need to be taken into account is how much sunlight the moon gets, depending on its location in orbit of Saturn much of the year it may not even get sunlight as it would be shielded by Saturn itself, and the rotation of the moon would also create varied days, some of our plant and animal life would possibly not survive in such circumstances, however as it is a system with a very similar balance of gasses in the air it is highly likely that the planet has life of its own, even if it is simply bacterial or water based, there could or could not be complex life already there, but disease could be a huge issue.


If you ignore the issues with unencountered diseases and super bacteria which would be stronger than anything on earth as we would have evolved around our own system but be completely unprepared for bacteria which evolved in another atmosphere. Then you would need to make the moon less risky with so many moons in orbit around Saturn there is a high chance of a future collision, the safest option would be to liberate the moon from Saturn’s orbit and place it into a stable orbit around the sun, and provide it with its own moon as a shield against space debris much like our existing planet has. This would then be the ideal situation for a secondary life based planet in our solar system. The calculations for doing such would be tremendous you would have to place the ideal spin and ideal moon size in order to make it retain its hospitable atmosphere. Or you could simply use a tony robinson style approach to making the planet (based on his programme catastrophes, not that he came up with the ideas but he presented the programme so Im giving him credit.) Find another moon/planet of the right size, and right density that it would break up entirely by skimming off titan whilst leaving titan generally intact but molten with some of the debris from the other planet and has its own ring creating its own moon, this would increase the size slightly, should knock it off saturn’s orbit, and into a proper special orbit of the sun. Of course this could naturally happen anyway with so many moons orbiting Saturn eventually they could collide especially as the ring of Saturn is supposed to be moons still in creation.


Going back to the series “catastrophes” it mentioned how millions of years ago asteroids hitting the earth created water on our planet which lead to oxygen, it states that the oxygen was deadly to most of the bacteria breeding on the planet, only some adapted to the oxygen based atmosphere, which means that the large amounts of bacteria which died off could have formed other forms of life possible creating more than just humans as intelligent life on our level, however the program’s view was without oxygen we would not be here, chances are the bacteria which evolved to create us would still have evolved to intelligent life levels but it would have breathed the atmosphere which the earth originally contained rather than the current oxygen based atmosphere. The fact that bacteria was breeding in a different climate also produces evidence that there is a good possibility life exists on other planets in some form, bacteria could easily evolve in the same ways it has here, perhaps slower or faster, depending on the elements available electricity may not even be possible on some planets, if it weren’t for lightening striking here we would not even have electricity. I personally believe that complex life would have evolved elsewhere in the galaxy, but the chances of them being so superior in evolution as to have space travel far beyond our capabilities is pretty low, most forms of life would probably be at an equal level as ours, their technological capabilities would depend on what discoveries they have made in their existence, and how they cooperate, is knowledge shared or hidden away etc, shared knowledge on a global level would increase the technological development speed whilst hidden knowledge would severely delay things as several people over the world may be working on the same things making the same mistakes and remaking old discoveries that weren’t made public knowledge wasting time which could be used on research and development elsewhere. It is said that we are transmitting our tv signal into space and people would pick it up, they may be able to detect the electric signals, but it would be so distorted through spacial noise and degradation (we have to have local signals for our radio waves and tv waves after x amount of distance you cant pick it up imagine that on a interstellar scale anything picked up would be worse than white noise and ignored on our own seti scale.) On top of that they have to have technology that works in the same ways as ours does, they have to have the precise decoders we have in our television sets etc, the way we presume other life would notice that you would never get noticed.

If we were really wanting to be noticed by life elsewhere in the galaxy we would have to approach things from a scientific point of view, what do we look for as signs of intelligent life elsewhere in the galaxy? We look for a persistent repeating signal which isn’t a pulsar, so would have to have some sort of varied rhythm. We presume numbers would be known throughout the universe but I believe this would not really be the case.. but some sort of repeating tune broadcast out into space (by tune I mean a signal that turns on and off in a set pattern repeating like dots and dashes on morse code like very old mobile phone ring tones) Music and noise would probably be more universally recognised as intelligent life, so if we broadcast a simple tune like chopsticks throughout the galaxy on a repeating signal from a point in space separate to our planet so as to not get lost in our special noise we transmit this would be a better signal to point out to the galaxy “we are here and we are intelligent enough to make music”, of course the signal would have to be very strong so as to reduce the degradation as it travels throughout the universe. Imagine seti searching through the stars for the noise they are searching for, rather than a repeating pulse (which would be highly unlikely from our planet just transmitting scattered noise on a large scale we would be presumed to be some electrostatic star of some kind spewing out random electrical signals) that you get a tune being played to you, undeniable proof of intelligence to come up with a tune. Heck its just popped into my head that close encounters of a third kind would be ironic, the spaceship plays a tune and communicates in music, which is quite clever as I just thought that music would be more universal, and the creators of the film must have realised this too. (again back to the issue of shared knowledge, our planet would be far better if knowledge was shared worldwide rather than kept secret, wikipedia is a great idea if only the entire world could contribute including scientific minds etc, this would then be the internet truly being put to good use as a global knowledgebase.


Back to the main issue of titan, if it was hospitable who would be chosen to go there, would it be like when the america’s were discovered, the rich took great boats to go there, and took poor people along promising them land in exchange for building the properties and community. I do believe that something along those lines would occur rather than the worlds best and brightest etc being chosen to populate the new world. I do believe that those with a desire to run their own country, those with a desire for change from our governments etc would wish to go, for the chance of creating their own community where things work out better and fairer, it truly would be the chance to start fresh and create a fantastic community from scratch and make things right. Inevitably once we have populated the moon (titan) we would have transports between earth and titan, which would lead to commercially produced superships (like ferries we use to cross the channel, but for the journey between planets, I would imagine they would dock at a spaceport orbiting each like the international space station but on a larger scale, which shuttles people between the station and the planet/moon as this would be easier than attempting to land a huge ferrycraft each journey. And from it becoming commercial many more people would be investing in the technology and research and our space travel would improve and we would have faster and more efficient spaceships which would lead elsewhere. Of course anyone who was to take the journey would have to be committed to giving up all they have here, it would be like a jump back there would be no internet, no television or radio, no supermarkets, truly fending for yourself from scratch, there wouldn’t even be electricity until some form of power generation was created on the planet, unless of course we prepared some form of fast install power generators etc. And with the journey you probably wouldn’t see anyone from this planet again, not as an initial settler, so anyone you cared about would have to go with you.


After seeing james may’s 20th centaury I noticed an invention known as the duck, basically it’s a form of energy generation which uses tidal forces, it would be ideal on a water based planet for generating energy, the tremendous upside is that beyond the point of the device which is gathering electricity it leaves perfectly calm waters, so this could be used as both a way of creating electricity and of preventing tidal erosion.

Okay so its been a while since I wrote something, a few things I was going to write about have passed like the discovery that there is a black hole at the center of the universe, well of course there is everything is circling a big black mass at the center like water circling a plughole, I think that was a pretty obvious thing, maybe origonally there was a supermassive sun which exploded and created the hole in the center who is to know, but it certainly makes the “dark matter” theory some people had pointless as the massive weight of such a large black hole makes thier dark matter mean that the weight of the universe wouldnt be stable, as Ive always thought if you have to invent something you cant prove just to make something fit youve missed something, and they missed out the weight of black holes and the mass and gravitational effects they produce.

Okay now onto the title issue, of the credit crunch and how it is a self defeating circle, as people have less funds to spend there is less need for people to work so people end up losing shifts so they have even less disposeable income which means there is even less money being spent on the economy reducing the need for workers further.  The government try to bail out failing industries but are just throwing money into nothing as it would be far better to let a failing business fail and focus on saving those which are copeing and providing support for those without work as a result.  It also appears that as a result many people are buying the “value products” but as they do it means that most shops sell out of these products, and even tv shows encourage the migration to buy lower value products not realising that by everyone doing so those that have had to survive on these all along are finding that there is no longer the option to buy these as the supermarkets run out and dont restock them very often.

On another matter related, the euro exchange rate is 1.05921 according to www.x-rates.com however when I went into the post office to exchange some euros to pounds they charged me the rate of 1.1373 which is stealing rather a lot to be fair considering they are supposed to be commision free exchanges.  I would sooner pay some commission and know what Im paying rather than sneakily be taken advantage of with a rate much higher than the actual exchange rate.

I also think it was funny how dispatches were trying to make out that the supermarkets should take a hit on thier profits of a few pence on the value products and make better quality products, the chances of that happenning very slim, but of course the general public are going to say yes they should when asked, if you went around asking the supermarkets theyre all going to say no…

Finally that flora buttery advert, gary rhodes travels the nation asking people which margerine product they prefer flora buttery or lurpack spreadable (read the smallprint) by a majority of 6 people out of 200 they prefer flora buttery, and if they had prefered lurpack no doubt the advert would have been a lurpack advert, confirming that of course the public thought what the creators of the spread thought, that the nation preferred thier product, because it was deeply bias, one of thier products or the other.  And you could hardly say a 3% majority a landslide win.
