Cuntie: it’s just a word

Language is a tool, and the word ‘cuntie’ (with added flowers and hearts) can be used to play with your perceptions. ‘Don’t be cuntie’ – said in the right voice tone is funny. But we all know the general perspective of the word without the ‘ie’ on the end. When you...

Immaculate misconception

The immaculate misconception of Christianity was that a carpenter didn’t spend his time screwing, nailing and banging. This joke started with the simple addition of three letters ‘mis’, to change one thing (a conception) into another (misconception) and in doing...

Eric Siegel: Meta Palindrome

Eric Siegel: Meta Palindrome On May 6th 2017 I created a video with the intent of getting Predictive Analysis expert Eric Siegel’s attention. I asked him whether it being 1001 days until 0202 2020 was a Meta Palindrome? The answer was ‘yes’. Eric has a page on the...

Giant Washer

As I walked past a launderette in the Mission area of San Francisco, I saw a sign in the window: 60lb Giant Washer – and thought to myself, “That’s not a very big giant.” Of course this is just ‘silly’, but that’s AOK in a crazy/genius...

Memory Clinic

Memory clinic appointment. Don’t forget. This was a real question I saw on a medical form at the Royal Gwent Hospital in South Wales: Do you have an appointment at the memory clinic? It is obvious, sure, but sometimes reality just gives you gifts – just...

No doubt equals certainty

‘No doubt’ equals ‘certainty’ – and it would seem that doubt/certainty are mutually dependent concepts i.e. each one exists in reference to the other. Here is a puzzle for you… ‘No doubt’ means 0% (‘zero’) doubt – which we know means ‘certainty’. But is it...

Oasis: Getting the reference

There is a different experience in ‘mind’ based upon the function it performs. In the most simplest manner, we ‘search and retrieve’ information. If someone asks you a question about pop culture, like which band sang the 90’s hit “Don’t look back in anger”? You will...

Miranda Hart: Galloping through the 4th wall

Miranda Hart “Bang our head when we galloped through the 4th wall, did we?” In her TV show, ‘Miranda’, she uses the technique of talking straight to the audience i.e. by looking into the camera. It was George Sepich that first told me this was called ‘breaking the 4th...

Please don’t make fun of the disableds

This was a sign I saw at an Indian restaurant in Cardiff. It entertains me in many ways… Ricky Gervais’s character David Brent sings a request, “Please don’t make fun of the disableds, there’s nothing funny about those” yet underlying we know it is ‘wrong’ as it...

Robert Kegan: Meaning Makers

It was pointed out to me on the weekend that I am the only person who cares about these dates. That is kind of the point. I am the one who is ‘making meaning’ to create a vision for the next 35 years, adding in a twist and a turn with the rule I am applying. Think of...
