embracing the Lay Chemist...
The name "Erowid" was chosen to reflect the organization's stated philosophy of education. Using Proto-Indo-European linguistic roots, "Erowid" roughly translates into "Earth Wisdom" (er meaning 'earth,' 'exist,' and 'be born' and wid meaning 'knowledge' / 'wisdom' or 'to see')
...and by happy coincidence an anagram of 'weirdo'
while sounding a lot like a Lord of the Rings character...
what were they on?
...and where was 'Wind' ?
the 'ear-borne' psychoactive music spokesperson...
Seriously, it looks like an interesting site!
<cup of tea and settle in...>
rank and file...
I've been thinking about this...
(with my Prebble-sized brain)
the urge to collect, collate and curate
is hard wired into our wetware
the internet being the latest, greatest
externalised tool to aid and abet a process
that begins with simple evaluations:
'Fits up nose,
doesn't fit up nose'
Do I have a receptor for that!
always with the questions...
...rating, grading, pigeonholing,
ordering, recording, filing...
but craving novelty.
always chasing the smallest the fastest
the oddest, taking it all apart...
tearing through the weak fields
the discrete, magnetic, gravitic
with no particle place to be...
all particles and fields it seems have an 'anti'
so is it any wonder we have so many
'defilers' and 'degraders' seeding 'disorder'?
tinkering with the emotional fields
(as Facebook has just done*)
is an inhuman experiment...
...another step along from Google's targeted ads
not much different to what ISIS(L) are doing
or any news media really...
I wonder who is running the experiment
at The Herald at the moment?
there is no higher power...
...no complaint based in whole or in part on a specified allegation may be made to the Human Rights Commission, and no proceedings based in whole or in part on a specified allegation may be commenced or continued in any court or tribunal.
Surely that is a crime against humanity in and of itself?
That the right to breathe oxygen is not a given, can't be far away...
Imagine the meters!
...councils were forced to divest themselves of such things.
Trolley: Madly? Deeply!
...happen to wear large earrings
... and was last seen abseiling off Column Crag?
Surely we have a Minister for that?
A whole Department even...
It's their job to be fear!
First World problem solved!
I was phoned back by vodafone today (Sunday), by one of the people who promised to, who had just come back to work after time off, and who followed up and let me know the connection was now live.
Good on him,
so they are on a 24 hr 7 day business cycle.
But it still needn't to have taken effectively 4 days to tick a check box somewhere
the person I talked to could give company money away
- credits and waiver of charge - actual income,
but couldn't initiate a flow of already streaming content,
this in the age of dynamically updating systems
and instant gratification
- weird approach!
They should all be made to watch Brazil
(no, not the soccer!)
just kinda outa place
Raymond Chandelier never really fitted in...
a Grater Auckland city vision
fixed that for you!
how else would you get 'zest' in a city
but by grating a lemon...
</recycled pun - save the wails!>
… and you’d have to say it smelt delicious.
...and you couldn't even see my lips move, could you?
Thank you, thank you,
We're Ventricle Loki
and we're here all Winter & Spring
Tell your friends....
there's pensioner matinees on
Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
...they’re mostly fibre optic which really doesn’t smelt so well.
imagine a fibre-optic / mozzarella hybrid,
at least there'd be an upside
when your data was toast...
