Coffee is a drug. I'm sure Switzerland isn't stockpiling heroin either. Maybe painkillers.  ;)

Actually Switzerland is stockpiling morphine and several other opiates. (heroin is a painkiller and an opiate)

pg. 36 ... Opiates
pg. 18 ... Coffee

Guilty as charged.  8)

My Great House can't afford real Sapho anymore so it's a dose or three of Java juice several times a day to keep the cogs in this old Mentat's head spinning.

p.s I think the mantra is by that same clever fellow - Anonymous - who writes the fortune cookie fortunes  ;)

The number of climate change deniers in Finland is then, by the election result, c. 25%-32% of the voting public. This makes it difficult to make up a government that would take science seriously. Won't start to analyse furthet here.

In Sweden most people don't deny climate change anymore, compared to a decade ago. The groups seems to have moved a notch: Deniers -> Skeptics -> Incrementalists. The Realists are still few.

The good things; I've mainly encountered the top three myths lately and that (reported) CO2 emissions went down by one percent between 2017 and 2018 (preliminary numbers not including useless numbers from emissions abroad).

The bad things; Deleted to keep this short and positive.

Well, my definition of a denier might be stricter than most. The number might be as small as 10% as there have been a couple of comments on it even from the parties (or parts of some parties) normally saying it'll be good for Finland. The original estimate is the number who definitely don't want to speak of it, and not do anything, for the other countries should do their lot first (india often cited)

The traditional publishing of discarded votes appeared today.

Votes not counted included the traditional ones for Donald Duck, Moomin papa and mama, Phantom, Jesus, Santa Claus and Cthulhu.  This time around some recent real persons were also tried to be voted for :Juice Leskinen, Vladimir Putin, Urho Kekkonen, and Adolf Hitler, only one of them alive but a resident of another country.
Personally I liked the one voting for a Bicycle and specially the one voting for Shaun the Sheep.

A metaphor of hope for our troubled future:

Bees living on Notre-Dame cathedral roof survive blaze
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-47995604

""I was incredibly sad about Notre-Dame because it's such a beautiful building," Mr Géant said in an interview with CNN.

"But to hear there is life when it comes to the bees, that's just wonderful.""

"Lack Of Consciousness*


while i agree, the word "consciousness" sounds too "innocent" for my taste, like the "bad childhood" argument for criminals.

IMO if anything it's ignorance on one hand, while this factor is reduced at a high pace nowadays, and the refusal to accept facts that don't fit to ego-based wishes and non-neceessary "NEEDS"

it's what i told my offspring is the "but i want" syndrom, an approach that, indicated through the word "but" assumes knowledge to a certain extent while the EGO is doing everything to over-rule
that knowledge, mostly through:

- i want

- i want (it) NOW

which means in other words, that they think: "you're probably right but i give a shit"

and that's where daddy (I) become kind of a prosecutor LOL same applies to blunt lies and other tricks that are often used to circumvent the evident or postpone the consequences.

for 30 years there was uncertainty whether some of the consequences were to heavy but not that my oldest daughter turned 40 and has almost adult kids, i can see they were not, it's worth to fight the self-inflicted or preferred state of unconsciousness and this is not measured by what others call "success" (only) but by the level of love that is all around ;)
