Buy Nothing Day












"For 24 hours, millions of people around the world do not participate -- in the doomsday economy, the marketing mind-games, and the frantic consumer-binge that's become our culture. We pause. We make a small choice not to shop. We shrink our footprint and gain some calm. Together we say: enough is enough. And we help build this movement to rethink our unsustainable course. "

"You store the device in your freezer until it becomes ice-cold. Then you apply some lube to the protruding part, and stick it in your butt. You hold it there for about 6-8 minutes until it assumes body temperature. Then you remove it, wash it off, and put it back in the freezer. You do this four times a day."

Why Are We Taking So Many Pills?

"That's where we need to be, holding [the doctor's] hand and whispering in their ear, Neurontin for pain, Neurontin for monotherapy, Neurontin for everything ... I don't want to see a single patient coming off Neurontin before they've been up to at least 4800 milligrams a day."

Although the article is speaking about the US, the situation is very similar in GB. Sit in any GP surgery and watch the guy in the suit trying desperately to see the GP - it's pathetic.

Blogger Is Shite

This software is just about as bad as it gets. They've turned word verification back on for posting, which just takes up more time. This is bad enough but when I try and publish a post it sticks at 0%. Leave it for ages and it posts but still reports 0%. Or it times out with the message "001 java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out "

You cancel and try again and you've got three of the same entry. In addition, it's so slow it's like treacle. I don't know if this will post.

EDIT LATER. It's improved slightly but still awful.

The Toy

"The Toy is worn internally, linked to a mobile phone and controlled by sms text messages sent to the phone. Once read, the message is transported automatically to The Toy, which turns it into vibrations - with a huge range of movements, depending on what you have written. Just say what you feel, The Toy will do the rest."

So I text my loved one to say we need five meat pies, a quart of milk and a new ironing board cover and it converts that into a sensation she can't ignore?
