Trump's Plan

In case you haven't noticed, Trumpy's got a plan. It's probably not a great one and it's probably not going to be too well thought through, but it seems to be a plan nonetheless. He's using 'expendable' Islamic militants to send messages to Fatty.

His military point man, Mad Dog, is advising him to use his reputation for nuttiness (unpredictability and outright lunacy) to scare the crap out of the biggest danger facing the world today. A fat finger on the nuclear button (reference to financial sector keyboard inputting errors causing meltdowns, not being fattist).

The supreme leader (Big Un) knows the US is awash with nukes. So Trumpy doesn't have to prove he's got the potential to make S Korea an island. But what he does have to do is demonstrate he's prepared to use them at the slightest (or not even the slightest) provocation - and he's demonstrating this on universally recognised baddies who can't retaliate - at least no more than they already are. Namely an already defeated and largely grounded military in Syria (replaced by Russia), and the friendless (except by those lovely IS chaps) and relatively toothless Taliban in Afghanistan - who are going to get really really angry. Boo!

59 cruise missiles to flatten one air base in Syria?! Come on. 2 would have been overkill.

A MOAB (Mother Of All Bombs - ie one click short of nuclear) to take our a few tents???!

Trump is using expendables to send clear signals to NK (NuKe? The word was even invented for them) that he won't hesitate to remove the gorgeous one from power and that he will be the next target for a shower of cruise missiles armed with MOABs. Defend yourself against them if you can chubs. Can't huh? Not playing fair with lots of missiles not tipped with nukes?

So assuming this is the motive (and it's not hard to guess it is), then what's the end game?

That depends on Russia blustering but realising it's not personal, and China playing along behind the scenes, but overtly continuing to criticise US belligerence. They cannot be seen to let the US get away with this, but there can't be any doubt they don't want the Big Un to start a war. His only value to China is to prevent vast numbers of refugees from invading from the South by maintaining NK as a vast refugee camp at his expense. They really don't want him around any more than anyone else does (including his terrified citizens).

So my prediction is that China will let the US drop a MOAB on Kim Jong Un and then agree to take over NK with financial support from the USA in return for devaluing their currency... but will Japan and South Korea agree to this? It's out of their hands. They're never going to declare war on China if the USA isn't going to stand behind them. So bye bye Spratly Islands and the South China Sea. Small price to pay for removing KJU from the world.

Sounds like some sort of plan to me... oops did I give it away? Doh.

Phillips screws - yes I'm angry about them too

Don't get me wrong. They're a brilliant invention to assist automation and prevent screwdrivers from slipping off screw heads - damaging furniture, paintwork and fingers in the process. Interestingly they weren't invented by Mr Phillips at all, but by a John P Thompson who sold Mr P the idea after failing to commercialise it. Mr P, on the otherhand, quickly succeeded where Mr T had failed. Incredible isn't it. You don't just need a good idea, you need a great salesman and, more importantly, perfect timing to make a success out of something new. Actually, it would seem, he did two clever things (apart from buying the rights). He gave the invention to GM to trial. No-brainer #1. After it was adopted by the great GM, instead of trying to become their sole supplier of Phillips screws, he sold licenses to every other screw manufacturer in the world. A little of a lot is worth a great deal more than a lot of a little + vulnerability (watch out Apple!). My gromble is abo

Norman's Autobiography

The following is an unfinished autobiography written by my father who passed away earlier this week at the age of 93. Cheerbye Dad (you were the only person I knew to use this expression). You were a huge influence on my life. Thanks for taking the time to record so much that I never knew about your own life and those of our immigrant ancestors. Dad's the one in the middle ;-) The HorBraJacSac Saga by Norman Horwood  9th June 1926 (or possibly earlier!) - 27th June 2019 The Families' Backgrounds. We have four families; Abrahams/Horowitz/Horwood; Bralofsky/Braley; Jacobs and Tchaikofsky/Sacof. Taking my pair, the (Abrahams) Horowitzs/Horwood and the (Bralofskys) Braleys. They escaped from different parts of "Mittel Europe" at different times. Abraham and Rachel Abrahams, nee Gess, (Horowitz), had been in England longer than the Bralofskys, having come here from Lithuania in about 1897 as a married couple without children. It is certain that Abraham

Prepare for Alien Contact

I've not gone barking mad or joined some weird religious cult (aren't they all?). But I do predict that we will make contact with intelligences from other planets soon. Here's my reasoning: There are approximately 100,000,000,000 stars in our galaxy (easy way to remember this order of magnitude is it's one hundred, thousand, million). Usefully there are also approximately the same number of galaxies in the universe. And assuming every star has about the same number of planets orbiting it as our Sun, and that the Milky Way is an average size of galaxy, that means there are around 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 planets in the universe. A lot. Scientists have long debated the probability of life, as we would recognise it - reproducing, eating, etc - existing outside Earth. Most agree mathematically that it's a certainty. What they did was take all the components they believed were required for life to have evolved on Earth and then extrapolate what they know about
