Today’s Top Tweet – Another juicy one from the parapsychology corner

Today’s top tweet happens to be my only tweet today. Truth be told, I’m deeply engrossed in trying to figure out xubuntu, which is a Linux operating system. I have installed it parallel to Windows XP on an old laptop (which I’m using now). So right now my mind is on tech stuff, not the news.

Having said that, I will always be interested in the possibility of hostile spies and parapsychology.

See ya’ll in a day or so once I get xubuntu working with my wifi. If that is… 🙂

Happy New Year!

Here’s a little sketch I’ve been working on.. finished just in time to ring in the New Year!

All the plugins, fx etc. are freeware… except for my MIDI host, Reaper, which is very reasonably priced.

Today’s Top Tweet – I’m no dark web wizard but…

I’m no dark web wizard but if the CIA’s claims are definitively true, why don’t they just post their data on the web for all to see? Surely there are enough independent and capable tech wiz’s to assess whatever traces, links etc. they have unearthed.

By way of analogy, if a surveillance camera captures footage of a criminal, the police usually have no hesitation releasing this info to the media. So what’s going on with the Russia allegations?

Today’s Top Tweet – How widespread is cowardly stalking?

They send you Christmas cards that go straight to the recycle bin. You’re excessively polite with them because you don’t know what they’ll do if you upset their imbalanced minds. They’re loners who can’t make it with people. But they can hack into your social media, email, whatever.

They’re a different kind of stalker. Disturbed cowards that don’t do anything in public for all to see. But behind the scenes, they’re watching your every electronic move… literally addicted to you in the worst possible way.

Selfish and self-centered, they never stop to think that maybe you’re onto them. And that it is disturbing to be spied on… not to mention illegal.

They don’t get the psychiatric help they need. They have no problem… As long as they can lurk in the shadows and live out their empty existence by looking at others from the outside. Always from the outside…

Paranoid dystopian future or realistic portrayal of what can happen right now?

Until legally busted, like in this tweeted example, we cannot know. But sometimes my gut makes me wonder. As the old saying goes, truth is often stranger than fiction.

(The Other Day’s) Top Tweet – C. S. Lewis and others on science and scientism

Originally posted November 26

Today’s top tweet points to a list of the main points mentioned in a Cambridge talk commemorating the 50th anniversary of the death of C.S. Lewis. The target web page also links to a freely streaming or downloadable mp3 of that talk.

Edit, November 28:  

I finally listened to the whole thing and ate humble pie the whole way through. It really is quite a good talk. So much so that I just deleted my previous comments. Never good to rush or comment on something before giving it a fair chance.

The youth of today… faster, sharper..?

In response to the above tweet, I get a little tired of harping on the same theme day in and day out. So I thought I’d just link to something I said yesterday. The following tweet pretty well sums up how I feel about the hegemony of science in the early 21st century. The older I get, the more it seems young people are hoodwinked by the splendor of science and especially tech. Their minds may seem faster and sharper than the previous generation. But are they really THINKING?

Some are, thank God. But some others, OMG!

Today’s Top Tweets

Every morning I go through the news in specific categories. I tweet stories that I feel are important because they are often overlooked on the front page. I often react to the stories and would like to comment. But I don’t always have time. So today I thought I’d list some of the top tweets. There are more, listed at right column.
