From Breitbart:

Facebook Changes Name to ‘Meta’ in Hopes of Reversing Brand Damage

From the story:

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said his company is rebranding itself as Meta in an effort to encompass its virtual-reality vision for the future — what Zuckerberg calls the “metaverse.”

Hey, Zuck, creepy images like this ain't helpin' you out any, either!

 

As I understand it, Meta is street slang for Methamphetamine. 

The new name fits perfectly.

Close, but no cigar. "Meth" is the slang for methamphetamine.

 

meta - 
word-forming element of Greek origin meaning: after, behind; among, between...

 

Yet, according to The Chosen People, meta means "dead". In Hebrew "meta" means "died" or "is dead" in the feminine.

I've heard it called both. Yeah, meth is more common.

Bojo's advisers have obviously been watching Ali-Frazier reruns. This faux squaring up to Macron at the Climate nonsense while being 'held back' by Trudeau is straight from the boxers' interview with Howard Cosell in the 70s selling their 3rd fight:

It's all theatre. Laughing while they knowingly crush the livelihoods of millions. Disgusting.

A CGI dinosaur talking with the voice of fan-favorite actor Jack Black took center stage at the UN’s General Assembly chamber to tell politicians to stop subsidizing fossil fuels and do more to tackle climate change.

 

Ooh, because the dinosaurs died out from climate change caused by them using fossil fuels.

 

Or maybe...

Voiced by the great thespian, Jack Black, nonetheless!

I think it's more appropriate towards metadata and its meaning:

 

Metadata is "data that provides information about other data", but not the content of the data, such as the text of a message or the image itself. There are many distinct types of metadata, including: Descriptive metadata — the descriptive information about a resource. It is used for discovery and identification.

Who knew the Guardian had an agony aunt? Not me, well until I browsed the online version. Today's 'Ask Annalisa Barbieri' is peak Guardian.

 

I am 16, and identify as an ace lesbian (NMLNM, or non-men loving non-men). I have questioned my sexuality since the age of 12 or 13, thinking I was bisexual. I downloaded TikTok, which allowed me to explore my identity more and interact with other queer young people. Until this summer, I questioned my identity multiple times a day (exhausting and not affirming), but I slowly began to feel confident in labelling myself as a demi-romantic, asexual lesbian (I like to use labels). However, that feeling didn’t last long. I felt dysphoric a lot of the time, and I hated my breasts. Fortunately, after about a month, I rediscovered the term “demigirl” and it just fitted. I am also trying out she/they pronouns, but haven’t told anyone. My gender is quite fluid – some days I feel more neutral, other days ultrafeminine.

 

I am open about my sexuality at school and online, and would happily tell most people that I am gay, but don’t want to “come out” to my parents. I think it’s a combination of fear, not of rejection (they are supportive of the LGBTQ+ community), and the fact that I hate the idea of having to “come out” if you are queer; I don’t want to contribute to our heteronormative society. Should I tell my parents so they have time to process it, or should I wait until I have a partner to introduce to them? Also, I feel obliged to inform them of my pronoun change, but I don’t want to be the one to teach them how to use she/they pronouns. I wish they would educate themselves. If I tell them my gender and/or sexuality, I don’t want them to perceive me differently. I know how they react is not in my control, but ideally our relationship will stay the same or improve.

 

I don't know. I just don't.....

China runs out of food

 

https://tfiglobalnews.com/2021/11/02/china-runs-out-of-food/

 

The Chinese government has issued a new directive – store as much food as you can. The Xi Jinping administration is also looking to cut the amount of food wasted in Chinese households and the sudden administrative actions have instilled panic in China about an impending food shortage crisis.

 

There are four major factors at play:

 

Unusual rains in the Shandong region have hampered food availability.

Pandemic restrictions are creating supply chain disruptions.

China is running out of diesel to supply enough food to the households.

Many fear that military tensions with Taiwan are creating a food shortage crisis in China.

 

China urges families to stock up necessities:

 

Beijing has asked people to keep daily necessities in stock in case of emergencies, following COVID-19 outbreaks in the country and excessive rains that have sent vegetable prices soaring in the communist nation.

🤔

Sorry, but it just sounds like a form of mental illness to me. And its not surprising when our education systems and media are filling childrens heads with these nonsense ideas from an early age, then we end up with dysfunctional teens like this one, who go on to become dysfunctional adults.

 

And as for "I like to use labels", well there we go with the crux of the problem, 'identity politics', where everyone is seeking out new 'labels' for themselves which allows them to seek attention or cry victim whenever they feel they are being 'oppressed'.

 

What this 'ace lesbian' doesn't realise is that we are ALL being oppressed, doesn't matter what label you give yourself.

This non binary and gender bollocks has become mainstream even though I'm almost certain the majority of people think it's insane.

 

"Marks & Spencer has started giving its staff pronoun badges as part of a diversity and inclusivity initiative. 

 

The new tags can now  include the person's name, and their chosen pronouns, options of which include: 'He/Him/His', 'She/Her/Hers', and 'They/Them/Their'.

 

The brand's Food PR manager David Parke shared a photo of his badge in a LinkedIn post where he said they have already 'helped start some very necessary conversations around gender identity and non-binary experiences'.

Exactly, its just a case of 'pandering to a minority'.

 

I'd also hazard a guess that the majority of M&S staff forced to go along with this charade also think its 'bollocks', and its the idiots like this 'PR manager' (well, what were the chances of that?) who facilitate all this.

Sort of but I'm not convinced it's a few people just pandering it seems more like trying to demoralise people with campaigns that just piss off ordinary people and it's climate change and trans lgbt nonsense and BLM. 

 

Add that to the Incompetence and wokery that must be in every big companies HR department with critical race theory and all the other shite that they push down people's throats. 

 

A lot of the public have actually been brainwashed to think the climate change is actually a real threat and groups like insulate Britain are "just going about it the wrong way". 

 

The public go along with it. But rest assured it's abuse. It's a severe abusive relationship between the powers that be and the public. 

 

I see it everywhere as well people still think there's a political solution. Labour this, Tories that. Boris this. Boris that.

I do think a lot of these woke type people secretly want to die. You see it symbolically with ER types performing sick rituals in the street covered in blood. 

 

Whatever you think of trump and he probably was a shill even though I brought into the maga crowd you saw it with trump derangement syndrome. He did represent strength and optimism imho. 

 

So when you see people castrated themselves physically and chemically perhaps it's a death wish. That along with vaccines, whether they kill you or not, I have seen the damage of these first hand and I've known a lot of people dying this year after being jabbered. 

 

These people are anti life, and if you are a Christian anti god. They are against goodness and genuine virtueness and they have no sense of love or humour. 

 

Perhaps it's not their fault. But they have to go one way or the other.

Interesting. Only yesterday I was in an M&S food shop and saw a new member of staff who looked gender-challenging. 

 

F/F/S.

you can see where that all leads though: to legal cases

 

soon people will be suing other people for 'hate crimes' because they did not use the right pronoun and the person will have no legal defence because 'the persons chosen pronouns were right there on their name badge'
