All the bees are dying and we don't seem to care. When they are finally gone....we go too. Maybe not all of us, but the world's population will drop to medieval levels. The price of food will shoot through the roof and Starvation will become normal.
Plants, fruits and vegetables will disappear, not just for us, but for animals too. No cows feed, no McDonald's. We're used to cows milk with our tea and coffee, it's also good for making cheese and ice cream and we all like ice cream....think, no more ice cream.
Nothing to wear. No more cotton. We'll be back killing animals for their skins, especially hairy ones.
Get use to being dirty. No honey means no skin moisturiser, which they put in soap and shampoo. If you stink it won't really matter that they put moisturiser in cosmetics.
Wheat won't be affected, nor rice and bees don't affect the food chain of pigs. I must admit that I like a bacon sandwich, but curry and rice without the curry...eeh.
How come our comedians are more truthful and informative than our politicians?
Planned obsolescence is the policy companies use to make products that are designed to break down, become obsolete, unfashionable, or just stop working after a set period of time (usually around the time that the guarantee runs out). Think; Play stations, I-phones, Windows, etc. Get the picture?
Watch the movie, "The Man In The White Suit" (1951), starring Alec "Obi-Wan Kenobi" Guinness, or the new BBC documentary series, " The Men Who Made Us Spend" and see how we are all getting mugged.
"Beware of the dangerous trap of looking ahead, it will only get you in trouble. Instead, try to drift along from day to day in a meandering fashion. Don’t get sidetracked with some foolish "plan"". George Carlin.
Fess up. How many of you Googled ephemeral?
Grumpy has been doing this blog for nearly six years now and I am always fascinated looking at my statistics page to see where the hits are coming from. Usually the lions share come from the USA followed by the UK. After that, there is a big drop and there is an equalish mix from western Europe, Russia and the rest of the English speaking world. I figure that's logical, on account of the language, populations and internet use....but then, there are you guys....Grumpy is getting more hits from Ukraine than the UK.
The sad part, from my perspective is that you lot are learning all about us and we know virtually nothing about you. Sure, you're on our news all the time with; riots, fighting, crashed airliners and politicians saying: "Something must be done", but I'm not totally convinced that they are telling us the truth. I look at RT, but, same again.
It makes me wonder. If you are spending all your time absorbed in problems, what are you doing here?
I mean it in the nicest possible way, because I'm glad that you are. The shame is that the sum total of my knowledge about Ukraine, other than the present problems are:
We had a war with you a couple of hundred years ago, but that's nothing unusual for the British. The countries in white are the only ones we haven't picked on.
"It's the bread basket of the Soviet Union", or so they used to tell us during the cold war, meaning you must grow a lot of wheat. Is that why chicken kiev is covered in breadcrumbs?....
Football fans know Dynamo Kiev (OK, I know Shakhtar Donetsk are champs but....).
The internet tell us that your young lads have this custom of throwing water over girls....
and you breed real life Barbie dolls.
One of the first posts I did was about the Ukrainian football team, FC. Start, which was the original story for the movie "Escape To Victory". Strangely, none of you seem to hit that one.
Anyway, nice to see you.
