20170602 Just reliving a nice memory 160.5mph! Dreamed of doing it and Then DID!

 

As a little boy, I saw Formula 1 racing as the BEST! It was about driving skill and world wide too.

It was not that NASCAR pushing and shoving while driving in circles…

Well, I always wanted to at least just once drive racing fast in an open wheel race car. 2015, Oct. I got that chance. I bought myself 2 drives of 8 minute each.

When the driver’s was held, the instructor said that the cars would only do 150mph in a single or double drive. You would have to buy a 3rd drive to go faster as the governor would set. He hear my groan and and I said I had the dream of doing at least 150mph. He quickly added that if you drove really good you could get to 153mph, but you had to be right on the sweet spot the whole time.

Well, the first 8 minutes I let myself feel into the car, what and where that sweet spot was at.

The 2nd 8 minutes I let it all hang out, it was the ‘QUALIFYING RUN!”

So you might imagine my surprise when I pick up my computer printed certificate and it said I did 160.50mph….

Yeah, I could have had fun being a real race car driver….

Enjoy this video of those 2 runs & the certificate shown at the end!

20170507 FAKE NEWS, pushing for censorship…

I wrote this piece on Mediumdotcom and I am re-posting myself here, just to continue to spread awareness of why CENSORSHIP IS WRONG…

View story at Medium.com

FAKE NEWS, a push for censorship!

OK, FAKE NEWS… oh my god!

Right, well as a child the GOSSIP COLUMN entertainment magazines were loaded on the supermarkets with fake news.

No one screamed to the kill them crazy publishers!

Now suddenly it is proper for the MASSES to demand that you only allow the “government sponsored” news be told…

Oh course it is the GOVERNMENT SPONSORED News agencies telling you this!

Hum, intelligent minds are curious!

Dumb people want entertainment & cheap food.

“Bread & Circuses” at least 2500 years old and STILL the battle cry of the the apathy now crowd….

If you teach children HOW to THINK, not what to think, you improve the survival of the human species.

If you allow a church/religion to dictate to the government what that government should allow to be taught. You improve the survival of that church/religion, till it KILLS OFF EVERYTHING.

Religions are parasites, they produce nothing produce of value. They demand the highest quality in food, housing and virgins for sacrifice.

In other words they suck the life out you, claiming that you will be “REWARDED AFTER YOU DIE”… what better way to protect the monies you steal than offer a money back guarantee claim-able only AFTER YOU ARE DEAD!

So for thousands of years the world was flat because the religions did not want you to realize the religions were sailing AROUND the world claiming to own it.

How can a world be flat if the explorers sailed east and returned to the starting point and other explorers sailed west and also returned to the starting point.

Illogical behavior to get illogical answers accepted.

So here we are in 2017, governments everywhere have been caught cheating & stealing & robbing the countries blind.

People are pissed, so what happens?

The religions speak out AGAINST INTELLIGENCE…

The religions speak of how it was better when no one heard this voice of opposition!

Religion speak out against anything that does not support it’s person point of view….

Suddenly “FAKE NEWS” is everywhere and a person who can tell the difference is a criminal…

The 4 Bible religions, Jews, Christians, Catholics, Muslims, all created from the same texts, in the same lands on the planet, claim the planet is only a few years old….

WHO IS FAKE NEWS!

Who screams the loudest to remove and CENSOR FAKE NEWS?

Yeah the people who CREATE Fake News…

TRUMPed has been in office for a couple of months now, just passing his 100 day mark…

Campaign speeches of “Draining the Swamp” are now replaced with massive levels of corruption, nepotism, Laws against free speech, laws to protect the 1% ELITE RICH & Wall Street Bankers, putting CEOs of polluting corporations in charge of the government agencies that protect the Middle Class against such actions…

and ANTI WAR….

Is now the the opposite as he LEADS the charge to wars everywhere,

of course I am “FAKE NEWS” because right there in TRUMPed’s financial statements is the stocks…

How dare I have facts….

Notice too the Boeing & HALIBURTON ( USA always sends in the Haliburton to clean up after a war) and many other companies that always PROFIT from USA war games…

And Now TRUMPed wants all “Whistle Blowers” arrested as terrorist…

So the next time you ask for Facebook to CENSOR Fake News, ask yourself, who does Mark represent if he is on a campaign tour across USA, accepted Millions of dollars in agreement to work with USA government to expose “terrorist/criminals”… and block “Fake News” by the governments standards?

The next time you ask someone their opinion, ask yourself, do you want to know what they think? Or do you want to hear them tell you what you want to hear?

Ask yourself if you parent or a boss, how many times have you told someone to “Think for themselves” and then gotten mad or punished them for thinking differently than you?

My 26 year old son knows to this VERY day, he never has to WORRY ABOUT CHALLENGING DAD. It is accepted he has different eyes and sees the world differently.

If he stops thinking for himself, then the feces hits the fans… not because he believes or sees something differently.

How does a industry grow, if everyone does the same thing?

How does a society right it wrongs if only a “Socially acceptable” answer is allowed to be seen?

How is there any medical breakthroughs if no one challenges the “Old way” or stops caring about profits and works for people instead?

I grew up learning to research out the data myself…

I learned to change my mind when the data required it.

I grew needing to THINK FOR MYSELF TO SURVIVE.

Now I am a “Whistle Blower” with a government of my country of birth wanting me dead & my so called “old buddies from school” running away fast because it scares them to think for themselves…

and worse to remember I was right 41 years ago!

So start thinking for yourself…

It is scary sure… but to let the government scare you into selling out your children & friends will be even scary,

specially at night when the Nightmares come…

20170429: The Price of INSANITY…

I have listened to THOUSANDS of religious idiots tell me their “God DOES NOT SUPPORT WARS” then run off screaming about HAVING TO KILL THOSE OTHER GUYS!

Insane people do not understand they are insane.

 

20170422: What to do to Increase Creative Abilities…

Print

The other day I was asked a question, “What can I do to increase my Creative abilities?”

A little while later, someone else asked a similar question, “My creativity is at ZERO. What can I do about it?”

This list is the answer.

In 59 years of life I have never run out of Creative Juice, sure I can be stumped as to what to do. Or the pen sitting not moving in my hands. The keyboard motionless & quiet under my hands….

But I always follow these rules and have found and answer!

Cameras, canvases, paper, inventions, problems in business, every time words, paintings, drawing, photographs & even silly posters are all born from these simple rules!

Enjoy and have fun doing that Creative whatever You Like to Do!

20170417: ANTIWAR Poster, 45 years of antiwar… still no logic in war!

Knowledge poem 3 pages

1976, wrote the poem, it was about the idea of the PUBLIC MASSES wanting “BREAD & CIRCUSES” to be entertained. They did not want to think about the world as a whole…

Top of page, yeah, I have been put in prison for talking of TRUTH,  I carry a broken shoulder for speaking out against USA corruption.

The Middle East, a constant war for 35 years…. Olie North & Pres. Reagan & Bush Sr. creating the Al Qaeda, just to keep USA Public wanting war…. 1999, I read of the Haliburton/Bush/1% Elite Rich creating the “Never Ending War with a Terrorist attack of  a huge size so the USA citizens would RUN TO WAR”  2 years before the 2001 9/11 attack…

The final comments unfortunately are not so well understood, FUKUSHIMA is killing all life…. there is only about 10 years left. 1975, I did a report on the nuclear industry, I came to the understanding that a major environmental disaster WOULD HAPPEN, too much corruption, too much USA government getting monies for underhanded deals & looking the other way at the nuclear pollution….

Yet the planet in a 100 MILLION YEARS or more, will be ready for new forms to come into existence… I personal hope that the humans will not return in as stupid a arrogant manner. If at all.

AND KEEP IN MIND, 1983 I tried to get the human race to see a different view, BY CREATING the International Space Station….

20170408 WHY a “Whistle Blower” stands against corruption…

In 1968, I lived in a stuck up Middle Class WHITE America neighborhood.

Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered and the snotty people for few days acted respect of colored people.

I was born on Jan. 15… and was just 10 years old. But sharing the birth Day of a man who suddenly people who spoke bad & disrespectful of others suddenly spoke decently of.

Acted as if those couple of days of sadness made up for all the disrespect made me stop and investigate.

You see, I was white too. But that town had told me I could not have a girlfriend because I was not born in that town… yeah, total arrogance.

20170407 Corruption a way of life

Well, the teachers did not like me, the family I had to live with was very abusive, physically & emotionally, the children of the town were also abusive.

So I did not join groups much, I was on the outside and ran businesses. The apartments of the family I lived with &

THE BUSINESS OF SURVIVAL.

By 1975, I was an outsider, a lone wolf, a odd ball…

No problem,

I also understood what you will learn in this video if you watch just the 1st 10 minutes!

I am still a Lone Wolf & a “Whistle Blower”…

I don’t support the divide & CONQUER theory either….

Human Rights is all people, not this group or that group

Environment is ALL LIFE on the planet, not just this animal or that animal…

The final comment at the end of this video still gives me chills to think about, it is a shortest summation of what & WHY I am a Whistle Blower, a person who fights corruption, be it government, corporation or CHURCH.

One major point of difference, this film MAKES RELIGION BLAMELESS, REALITY CHECK, priests, POPE, Leaders of all RELIGIONS claim special STATUS, collect monies FOR PRAYING, a productLESS occupation…. very prejudice, very often racist, the CORE OF THE ISSUES! AND RELIGIONS FLAUNT THEIR WEALTH! the Pope Francis hides sexually abusive priests from legal prosecution….

Think about folks religions demand you pay or they hurt you….

20170330: Joshua Tree funnies

So many times over the years, I have listened to people who do not open their eyes and walk in nature… “Oh nature never does 90 degree angles in anything.”   2 examples of 90 degrees in nature, naturally happening in ONE photograph….
