This week Spotify, a company that has burnt many billions of dollars since its founding in 2006, laid off 17% of its people. Based on what I have heard, cuts were quite uniform across all functions, meaning that one out of six employees is now gone. This is a lot. Given that a typical team… Continue reading Layoffs and Female Behavioral Correction
When I was browsing the shelves at my local library, I came across a book on the witch hunts of the Middle Ages that promised a “modern treatment”. I flipped through it and was not surprised to learn that witches had done nothing wrong. They were simply judged not by the content of their character… Continue reading Were the Medieval Witch Hunts Justified?
I have been following the currently ongoing Palestine war with great interest, and can’t help but notice some rather pertinent real-world parallels, the kind you will not find anywhere in the mainstream. As of now, the Israeli army is preparing to enter the Gaza strip, and has been for well over a week. Meanwhile, Hezbollah… Continue reading Israel’s Present and Future
In a recent comment I mentioned how little economic pressure there was in Berlin in the 2000s if you wanted to get out of the rat rate or not even enter it. Looking back, it was really a quite remarkable windows of opportunity. For context, after the German reunification, politics and investors had high hopes… Continue reading The Bohemian Berlin Lifestyle of the 2000s and its Subsequent Disappearance
The last time I took a walk in nature with my schizo hat on, I thought about the machinations of the CIA and its excessive meddling in popular culture. This is the sledge hammer the United States used to wield in order to exert “soft power” all over the globe, but due to its recent… Continue reading The US Government is Most Likely Influencing Western Video Game Development
Now that the scamdemic has died down, the next fearmongering campaign of the mainstream centers on the weather. We went from “global warming” to “global boiling”, which has absolutely no basis in reality. Climate terrorists set forest on fires, which the NGOs that pay them then use to spin the narrative their government backers want… Continue reading Women (and Men) Are Fatter than Ever Before in Human History
Netflix recently released a three-part mini-series on Arnold Schwarzenegger, which, I assume, all of you are familiar with. This mini-series has three parts, covering distinct phases in Schwarzenegger’s life: body builder, movie icon, and politician. Looking for a catchy alliteration, these parts are called athlete, actor, and American, which perhaps rolls off the tongue more… Continue reading Arnold (2023)
The other day, ZeroHedge published an article about a recent survey according to which members of congress are considered less trustworthy than telemarketers and used-car salesmen. This may make you chuckle, but it probably does not really surprise anyone. Yet, if you look at the article, you also realize that it is a missed opportunity.… Continue reading Accelerating Loss of Trust and the Breakdown of Society
The other day I binged on Ancient Apocalypse, a recently released eight-part documentary series on the work of the fringe archeologist Graham Hancock. His main hypothesis is that an advanced human civilization existed well before 5,000 years ago, which flies in the face of mainstream “science” and its stance that the birth of human civilization… Continue reading Netflix’s Ancient Apocalypse and Dogmatism in Science
Some of you may have heard that the Sweden Democrats (SD) got a stellar result at the last parliamentary election in Sweden. Unlike what the mainstream tells you, this party is what would have been called “centrist” about a decade ago or so. Today, on the other hand, every party that is not part of… Continue reading Leftist Bullshit Reporting: Problems without Causes
With great bafflement have I been noticing that Western mainstream media, on the one hand, tell me how badly Russia is losing, but on the other, the war just does not seem to end, which just does not make any sense. Then there was this inexplicable annexation of various regions in the Eastern Ukraine, which… Continue reading How the Ukraine can Win the War
Most supermarkets in the Western world seem to be switching to self-scan stations where you play the role of the cashier, and apparently this approach is so cost-effective that it does not matter if people steal a few items or forget to scan them. There is of course a limit to that kind of book… Continue reading All Hail our Low-IQ Future!
The very competent political leaders of the European Union recently set a price cap on Russian gas. Their idea is simple, yet ingenous. In essence, those geniuses figured out that if energy prices are too high, they just will not pay more than a certain amount. I mean, what could go wrong? Quite frankly, it… Continue reading Political Hubris and the Price Cap on Russian Energy
I made some rather curious observations recently. First, when there is a big legal debate behind the scenes, there is normally a lot of fake debate in the mainstream media. The right to bear arms is one example. This is a constant topic in US mainstream media. Yet, the very recent turn of events in… Continue reading The SCOTUS Abortion Ruling and Vaxx-Induced Infertility
The mainstream narrative surrounding Putin’s special military operation in the Ukraine is one of the most absurd campaigns in recent memory. Perhaps, the elite pawns are getting dumber and dumber each year, so they have given up on wanting to make sense. As a recap, Russia invaded the Ukraine a couple of months ago. From… Continue reading The Winning Ukraine is Starting to Lose
