What Do Chameleons Eat? 16 Foods in Their Diet - AZ Animals

I think the thing that most troubles me about this bat-brained cultural epoch we’re stuck in is the speed, the ease, with which people who are certainly old enough to know better adopt brand-new idiocies the moment they’re created. I mean, look how fast they went for “transgender.”

Other examples:

Saying “they” instead of “he” or “she.”

Thinking they themselves can be the next Jackie Chan or Douglas Fairbanks, monkey-flips and all–just do it! It all winds up on YouTube.

Speaking of YouTube, we are told that now more people want to become “YouTube stars”–for 15 or 20 minutes, I guess–than astronauts.

Worshiping “famous celebrities” you never heard of, who became famous by doing things you never thought of.

by Jove, they snap ’em up like a chameleon snapping up flies. As soon as something new comes rolling out of the dumpster, hipsters grab it. When they’re not busy decoding “coded” messages that really mean something nasty. Like, “What time is it?” is “code” for various Racist and Inappropriate Hate Speech.

No mas, no mas…

  1. It’s a very strange time, indeed. Undoubtedly, YouTube has played a big role in this, because now virtually anyone can have their own TV show, and a tiny slice of fame. I have long noted that people seem to think that anything coming out of a TV set, or computer screen, is worthy of our attention. Of course, that is not the case.

  2. I really think that a lot of our trouble today is that there are so few meaningful jobs left — and by “meaningful,” I don’t mean (pun unavoidable) something that makes the worker feel euphoric, but something that results in a visible product. Even working on an assembly line or being part of a typing pool (remember those?) is more meaningful — i.e., produces something that can be used — than being a diversity monitor or a YouTube “influencer.”

  3. The BBC is airing a show where the central character is a girl who wants to transcend being human and become immortal as data in the cloud. This latest propaganda is called Transhumanism.

    1. And if everyone becomes data in the cloud, who is going to maintain, service, and update the cloud and its necessary hardware and power source?
