    Or that radio program “ Ignorance is Bliss“ , the full title should have been “ when ignorance is Bliss it is folly to be wise “. For all the shouting about the importance of further education it is astonishing at the numbers of more than ever ignorant people. Knowledge comes from living life and listening to others who have lived and learned, not by listening to some crackerjack who is just repeating what some other crackerjack told him and passing on further disknowledge , but one only learns this again the hard way I suppose, JS.
    A good example of this is our ever dependable media. As is that time of year again for memory’s of the distinct abhorance that I bear to certain aspects of their extreme poor Jounalism, I once again point out outright and misleading misinformation and as it bears ref to me makes that abhorance only worse, a printed headline which said Skipper did not Check ship before he sailed. This headline was construed from that I didn’t stand and count out a few hundred hot water bottles , blankets and towels. If they can make up a headline from that, then what chance the truth ever coming from the lips of such people, especially in these days of fire and pestilence. Maybe the folly to be wise is the best thing for everyone to follow. JS

    I posted this a few years ago.
    Remarkable Obituary.
    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old fried, Mr Common Sense.
    Mr Sense had been with us for many years. No one knew for sure how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
    He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons such as knowing when to come out of the rain, why early birds get the worm, and that life isn't always fair.
    Common sense lived by simple, sound financial policies {don't spend more than you earn} and reliable parenting startegies {Adults, not kids in charge|
    His health began to deteriorate when well intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. _ Reports of a six-year-old charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate, teens suspended from school for using mouth wash after eating their lunch, and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, which only worsened his condition.
    Mr Sense declined even further when schools were required to get consent from the parent to administer aspirin to a student, but could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
    Finally, Common Sense lost the will to live when the Ten Commandments became contraband, churches became businesses: and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense finally gave up the ghost after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot, she spilled a bit on her lap, and was awarded a huge financial settlement.
    Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust,his wife, Discretion, his daughter, Responsibility and his son Reason. He is survived by two stepbrothers, My Rights, and Ima a whiner.
    Not many attended his funereal as so few realized that he had gone.

    The current situation with this Virus thing is a good example of how things go wrong.

    I have never ever seen so many 'experts' on any subject as we have on this one.
    Daily we are subjected to the ravages of a new 'expert' and their theories.

    Would not be so bad if they were all singing off the same hymn sheet, but no, all have a different story to tell

    It gives a new meaning to artificial intelligence, most of the intelligence they have is artificial.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    #23, not only so many experts but they are also 'hindsight experts' not so easy to take the right perceived path when facing the unknown, I wonder how all these 'experts' would have faired if they had been faced with the unknown and knowing that every move they made would be under public and other expert (?) scrutiny, somehow I think the sales of toilet rolls would have gone up.

    We are told there is no evidence that you can get infected by mail / Parcels / News papers ETC... So why not put bank notes in that category its all paper, This is the nanny state at work wanting to know where you get every penny from. I cant pay my window cleaner ETC... with a debit card, I cant give my grandkids a little pocket money with a debit card, There will always be the need for cash and there are still some little corner convenience shops that don't have the online facility for card payment only. I have to say after handling cash and leaving a shopping centre i always where possible use the hand sanitizer. And it couldn't have come at a better time to scrap the old £20 notes some of them where filthy. Terry.

    #25... Always wondered where that term filthy lucre came from Terry, now know. Agree with your sentiments if there was less crime would leave what little I have under the bed. Would also have a shot gun booby trapped to blow of the head of anyone wanting to try their hand. Thatís all banks are worth. Somewhere to deposit your money safely and try not to get in their debt. Cheers JS.

    But Terry is correct, things have gone to a ridiculous level.
    I heard today that weddings will again be allowed in UK, but the restrictions to go with it makes one wonder, why bother just live in sin.

    The fact is we are lead and ruled by those who claim to have the answers of the world when in fact they very often are the cause of them.

    What about the consumation part John to seal the deal. Maybe that part is not allowed , which means one is not really married after all. Cheers JS..

    When I was in Shanghai in 1977, I met up with a couple of students from Switzerland who were man and wife. I don’t recollect whether it was during the time when China was trying to stop their citizens from having more than 1 child or whether it was University rules, but they were not allowed to sleep in the same building.

    A good example of Fornication is for Propreation, Not Recreation ?

    Talking about fornication (were we? I've lost the thread maybe) I can recall my father telling me how the term 'bagging off' came about. It seems that when a young unmarried couple retired to the only available bed in their parents house they were tied into separate canvas bags to prevent any hanky panky. Naturally, those with a passion and handy with knots would soon have the bags off. Hence the term.
