I won't tell who this is. It is supposedly of a public figure who is still known as 'alive'. You guess.

It had a title "After the execution"

What do you reckon? Real or fake? I'm wondering if this person had a surgery and still under anaesthesia....but her face looks very pale like dead.🤔

It had a title "Real Bill Gates is no longer alive" 😮

Do you think this is fake? To me, at least Gates and the poor girl looks not doctored. 😢

One thing strange is the hand on her shoulder which seems like a child's hand.

I was doing some homework the other day with my eldest and he’s covering world war 2…

And I found out that 11 million died in the holocaust. 
I told him I thought it was 6 million and he said no, that was just the Jews. 11 million overall.

I actually don’t recall that when I did it in school.

learn something new everyday!

Something to think about while eating turkey this Christmas...

 

In fact, in just about every language, the name of this bird is the result of geographical errors and verbal laziness, a legacy of the chaos and confusion that accompanied the initial era of globalisation.

 

The earliest use of “turkey” in English, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, was in 1541, with the word “turkeycocke”. This likely referred not to the bird countless Americans will eat this week, but to something like a guinea fowl or peacock, or perhaps to any exotic bird imported into Europe from the East. Europeans would generally purchase these birds from Turkish traders from Constantinople, and thus saw it as a cock, or hen, from the land of the Turks.

 

Soon, confusion descended: as British colonialists settled in the New World, the big edible game bird from the Americas became increasingly popular in Europe. Somehow, these different birds arriving from very different places were given the same name. By the early 17th century, the shortened version of this name, “turkey”, had come to apply primarily to the “gobbler” from the West.

 

Thus, Europeans accidentally named an American bird after a people who lived in the opposite direction, which may be fitting, since those people made a similar mistake. There were no turkeys native to Turkey, so Turks called the bird “hindi”, perhaps thinking it had come from India -- Hindustan in Turkish.

 

This also may have been because, in 17th and 18th century Constantinople, speaking French was popular among the city’s cultured crème de la crème. In French, this bird was originally called poulet d’Inde, or “chicken from India,” and later shortened to dinde. The French error may have been a result of the mistaken European belief at the time that the Americas were “the Indies”.

 

So what do Indians call this bird? India was also home to zero turkeys. But it is home to more than a hundred languages, and in many of them the turkey is called piru, or peru, which, surprise surprise, is the result of yet another geographical misconception. The Portuguese gave the bird this name because it apparently began appearing on their dinner tables right around the time their famously successful sailors conquered the South American country of Peru.

 

It doesn’t end there: the Cambodians named this bird after the French, while Malaysians named it after the Dutch, who in turn named it after a single Indian port city.

 

In the end, nobody seems to have known, or cared, from whence this bird had come. If we had figured it out back then, today we might know the turkey as “americkey,” or “rickey” for short. But in that crisscrossed first era of global trade, everybody screwed up. And in English, now the world’s lingua franca, the name of the country and the bird it never knew ended up as one in the same.

 

So today, in Turkey, many will enjoy a bird from America, accidentally named after India, possibly by the French. While Americans will eat a bird the British lazily named after the Turks. 

 

Gobble gobble.

 

What happened to wingwang? Where is he?

Baba Vanga's Prediction For 2024

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r63XMka6qoA

 

She predicted that Europe will fall under the Islamic regime by 2043 and communism by 2076.

That's only 19 years from now and by the way they are moving in, it wouldn't surprise me and I want nothing to do with the lower vibration invasion.

As for communism, I don't know whether it's a good thing or not since the idea of democracy didn't quite pan out as it should have.

Random nonsense I was contemplating earlier.

 

"Perfection" exists prior to experience.

 

The very nature of existence is imperfection.

 

As part of experience I must celebrate imperfections that I experience, rather than trying to make them perfect, for perfection means "death" or prior to experience.

 

The joys, the creativeness all lies in imperfect configurations. So celebrate the perfection of imperfection and experience itself.

Don't forget the European gypsies, they were disposed of in their hundreds of thousands if not millions!

Hate this culture we are.in now. All one upmanship and shite from tiktok. 

 

"Only fans" why any man would actually pay for that instead of just either buying an escort or just watching pornography is beyond me. 

 

Anyone else noticed the "manscape" nonsense. I don't know what manscape means. But there seems.to be a lot of marketing around it at the moment and crude advert commercials. Has a razor and foam died out then?

 

Pure fucking nonsense. 

 

Sorry literally just wanted a rant. Sound like I'm about 70 😂😂(not that there would be anything wrong with that by the way)

Look at this lefty tosspot. What a nobhead.

 

I can't work out who's more annoying. That old band called happy Mondays there's a "dancer" called baz with the most annoying mannerisms. Or the strange bloke in this video jumping up and down. 

 

The singer supposedly pushed the needle during the Rona. What a surprise.

Ha ha I think I last saw a man wearing one in the late 70s, even then it was just diehard old hippies 😀  But you know, if you wait long enough things come back into fashion!

Experimentation.

 

It is apparent that the conscious mind is very very slow and limited. It can only process data one line at a time to make sense of it. And then contrast with other data line by line to come to a conclusion or action.

 

It is no wonder the conscious mind does not rule much of our lives. That's our subconscious mind.

 

You can access subconscious mind through right brained activities. Drawing being one of them. So attempting to process more of the usual conscious mind activities with the "subconscious" by being more right brained, and using images to download data and information rather than numbers and words....

 

Same with understanding. You don't need to understand with logical conscious mind. It doesn't know too much anyways, doesn't know how you breath or grow your hair. Only knows 1+1 or word + word. Little else.
