Aside from the fact that Im unashamedly doing this to get some free seeds from this company Ive had a look around and it seems quite a good site with reasonable prices on the seed packs and a nice selection so its actually worth a visit, and the Free postage and packaging is a bonus on top of other seed companies Ive dealt with that tend to charge a few quid and dont even have better prices,  so if you intend to buy some seeds either vegetable or flowers then visit these guys first as you might even make some savings.

A few weeks ago I was sent this product to test and review and to talk about, I filmed this video on the day that I opened it and have been trialing it since then, an updated video will be uploaded soon with a more detailed review, this just tells you what you get in the package if you wished to purchase one and my initial thoughts on the product.  It is designed for treating Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD and also for giving you more energy or combatting the winter blues as they say.  As you can see in the video I am a bit of a sceptic but I will give an unbiased review and my honest opinions, no hype or bull or sales spiel just a clear honest opinion on how it works and whether it does anything for me.

A lot of people dont know that many of the every day sites you use to shop online you can earn some extra cashback on every purchase you make, it may not be much but it certainly adds up, and with other things like switching your energy provider or signing up to something like sky significant cashback offers are available.  I have been using the site for a while and have accrued around £400 in cashback to date.  There are also small offers such as a few pence every day for doing internet searches, I personally havent done these so my cashback isnt based on that but I have heard some people do this and have earned around £200 per year from that alone. 

Either way I would reccommend joining as even if you just use it for getting a little cashback on your ebay purchases its worthwhile as the savings certainly add up, but if you wish to hunt out the best offers they are out there.

I was reading the other day in the daily express that a group of clampers who had extorted upto £500,000 from motorists were jailed for 4 years, and obviousely I was interested to read this article because they were the same company who had towed away my mazda, knowing that they had been on watchdog and other programmes for acting illegally and with the extortionate daily charges they were asking for I refused to pay.

The company in question were NPC National Parking Control operating in birmingham, gary southall and wayne southall were both arrested along with clamp operator phillip bennet.

What the article did not mention was how to go about claiming your car back now that they had been arrested, I had been looking for an actual address to correspond to for a while in relation to getting my car back and they only had a fake forwarding address registered which was no good, and now that they will be in jail for years who knows how you’re meant to claim your vehicle back, will the government forward it to you or are you meant to wait til they get out of jail?

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.

Having watched this series of the apprentice every week I have noticed major fualts with the majority of the candidates chosen this year and I wonder how they made it past the auditioning process.  I feel they may have been chosen more for thier entertainment factor rather than thier business prowess.  Frequently they would either lie or completely make up facts about products in order to get sales, they would badger people and blag thier way through the tasks with no actual management potential.  On an operational level they dont have many problems, but as task leaders they always seem to struggle and some of them even panic like a rabbit caught in the headlights.

Even at the start of todays episode, one of the candidates had a title of “unemployed head of somethingorother” what on earth does that mean, if you were head of some department then thats one thing, you’re either head of that department or you’re unemployed, former head of whatever would be acceptable, and why were you now unemployed were you that poor at the job, how long were you in that job, possibly a day trial knowing the blag factor of these candidates.

I would find it suprising if any of these people would ever make the draft if it wasn’t for this program, selling by any means neccissary including lying and cheating isn’t right wheres thier corporate/business responsibility.  If I was task manager on these candidates I would have had words long ago on the way they act.  And with some of thier idea’s they come up with someone needs to have the courage to point out the ridiculousely useless ones, it doesn’t take a genious to spot how bad some of these are.  You could forgive a week or two of bad idea’s but almost every week things have been poor, okay so some weeks it was obvious which team was going to win with the poor idea and the good idea, but this week I would say both were bad from the outset.  The tagline for the octo-kleen was stupid, I mean because 8 hands are better than 2 what on earth has that got to do with anything, and its completely meaningless bumph, at least the germ o nator had a viral aspect, just the excecution of it was pulled off poorly.  They could have either focused more on the germ destruction aspects of the product, or had a similar video with something like dirt o nator as the name as it would be a cleaning of deeply dirty products, and replace the boy with a weak nerdy student and that would have worked good.

Of course I would have said the octo-Kleen product should have been the losing product personally as its meaningless tagline and alienating the core market should have definately lost the task for them, I guess lord alan believed the main flaw with the other team was that it included a young boy on the product which was against the whole “keep away from children” tag and deemed it dangerous.

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.

I cant believe I dont appear to have posted since september, what happened there? Lots to do, should really post more on here.

So I was working on the bars at the big chill as part of my tour of different festivals on the bars, I had a unique experience compared to most of the other staff as I was transferred to different bars all the time when others got busier so I got to see what different bars were like (if Id slacked off more I probably wouldve only been on the one but hey I was happy to be moved around made the days go quicker)

In my opinion main stage was the worst as most of the day there were bands nobody knew who they were playing and by the time the headliners got on they cranked the music so loud that all you could here was the thumping bass and could not here the tune or singing behind it, and we werent exactly far from the stage being directly opposite it too.  Amstel bar was good with party tunes all day long and a relatively busy environment.  Castle bar opposite castle stage was mellow and chilled with very unusual chilled versions of songs on mellow instroments if that makes any sense, was fun to play guess the song with the other bar staff there until I got moved back to main bar. 

For me the last day was the best bar in club 10(possibly meant to be club tent and I misheard it) the open air stage with comedy in the morning, then some really good dance music, the end of the night sucked a bit with dub step, so repetitive and boring I tell you. But a nice and chilled bar and we had far too many staff so could have a bit of fun and relax on the last day.

The worst part was when you werent working you have to sit in the workers campsite and do nothing all day, we were all commenting on how its like a prison campsite, there is absolutely nothing to do and if you start at 6:30pm you bake in the sun with about 10 of you left on the campsite waiting to start a shift and you cant even sleep as its so hot.

I guess it is really more of a festival to be enjoyed walking around and chilling out as opposed to actually going there and frantically rushing the stages to see bands, hence being called the big chill, and really the place was huge covering quite a lot of land, so it would be more of an event to enjoy with your mates and meet new people.  I would like to see it from a visitors perspective, I can see where the appeal would be and as a chilled out event for gathering people together to have fun I see the appeal, but as an event for the music there were a few issues with the levels for the actual enjoyment.  Maybe next year they will sort out the sound levels and things will be better.  I can tell you now, the music was louder at the big chill main stage than any of the other festivals I worked at and that includes bloodstock the heavy metal festival.

working at various festivals basically spent 4 weeks in a tent, with about 1 day off after each one which was pretty much spent recovering lost sleep and buyins food rations for the next event.  Was good though, will update with individual posts about it later, but for now this will do.  Got some time off to see some bands too which was good, next year Im going to plan things out better, knowing Ill get the A shift at v festival which would offer lots of time off, and try and get better shifts at the other events for the other agency so I can see more, or at least plan for things I would be interested in seeing.

Sleeping in a tent on a roll mat on the other hand was quite uncomfortable, most nights it was freezing cold, I barely got any proper sleep I swear I was awake most of the night most nights. Still with proper planning and better supplies (and actually assembling the tent properly) things should be better next time.
