The Science Of Spoons

A few days ago I was talking on another site to one of those science heads who gets really angry when people point out that is is silly to talk about exploring space, seeking other planets capable of supporting life when the nearest of these is so far away that in our fastest space craft (10 miles per second with a following wind) it would take 17,500 years (approx) to travel as far as light travels in 1 year.

Now the nearest star so far guessed to possibly, just possibly mind, have a planet that might, just might, have the right surface temperature, and possibly, just possibly, the right mix of gases in it's atmosphere and the right radiation levels to potentially support life forms like those here on earth is forty light years away. So forty times 17,500 equals a bunch of very old intergalagtic explorers before they even get anywhere, let alone back again.

The angry, science worshipping guy then began rhyming off how science had improved our lives, we owed everything to science and would all be running around bollock naked and eating dung for our dinner but for science Yawn, hear it all before, and.

So today when I saw this it made me laugh:

 

T plastic spoonhe science of the

 

And that science guy omitted to mention that we are still eating dung for our dinner because science has given us chemically adulterated dung instead of natural food - and plastic spoons to eat it with.

You see when people get so obsessed with science they forget to use a bit of common sense it isn't science any more, it's  stupidity.

I'll get round to demolishing the new IPCC report on how to fraudulently manipulate data, climate change and global warming in a few days.

That is funny!

Well I aim to keep people smiling or make them think ... and with luck both at the same time.

And soon we may go full circle. As Zager and Evans said back in the 1960s:
In the year 3535 won't need your mouth, won't need your eyes
Everything you think do and say is in that pill you took today ...

This is a long article and I wander off into peripheral subjects at times. You might be best bookmarking it and taking it in several bites.

Cheers Ken, I feel much the same way about television remote controls. What's so difficult about crossing the room to change channels? Convenience has become a cult but is it doing us any favours.
The people I love most are those who use their laptops, iPads or smartphones, bough with money advanced by the evil bankers to protest about how te evil capitalists and bankers are destroying the planet.

I agree about the remotes. It'll be a frosty day when I am so lazy I can't tell Tess to get up and change the channel. LOL

Kidding.

I know Ian but if your like me you can have a bit of fun with remote controls I will write something about an episode with two remote controls.

That's how it worked in my house a long time ago.  HRH would lay on the couch, 8 feet from the tv, and when I came home from work and stepped through the door, he would say, "Put that on channel ___."

And you let him live?

Ken, he wasn't much of a husband but he was the single best human being I've ever known.  So, yeah, I let him live.

This is a good mirror to human kind.

It illustrates how readily we accept technological advances as progress when often they are the opposite.
