Wee Hoosies

You've heard of the saying, "Here's the ONLY way to eat bacon!"? Well, here is the only way to travel Scotland! Bear the wind and buttocks, tramping through moors and brambles, up and down McGraw and Hill, stopping to sleep at tiny wee hoosies that the Banshees built. These old-style tiny houses are a lot like the ones I posted which were in the Hebrides, but were abandoned and falling apart, because there was not much local business for shepherding any more. Everybody wanted to go away and work at MacDonalds, the most powerful clan on all the Earth.

The problem I have with these stoic cottages is that, #1, I am not in Scotland, and could not ride a bike to them, and, #2, if I got to one, I would want to LIVE there, for like 5 years, eating nothing but thistles and famous Scottish potatoes, writing the tome that would one day make me famous: My last will and testament.

There are also a few tiny homes on some abandoned Scottish isles, asking for someone to come and live in them. I'd like that, but the cold ocean wind would burn through my hypothalamus, and I don't know how to grow oatmeal. But one day, maybe.

If Trump really wanted to do something that will get him into the Playboy Tower in the Clouds, he should start a works programme in the USA - and Scotland tyoo - whereby tens of thousands of tiny wee hoosies would be built - and I'm talking a little more lavish than a Port-o-Let or a slave's cubicle. These homes would carpet the land, like windmills, inviting weary travellers, homeless and Syrians to stop on by for a while and have a wee bit of weed, (and maybe even stay there forever or until the apocalypse). This would solve so many problems, especially rent, which is killing me.

Thoreau had the right-winged idea: Go into the woods, live in a single-residence trailer park, write about sounds in the night, like loons and exploding ice. Then, get paid for it when you are old and dead. That is the life for me! Oh, to be walled-in! WALDEN. | Thoreau's Cabin | Simplicity | BUILD ONE! | Walden Woods Project

...listen to what the man says!

Without a 'world government' technology could WIPE OUT humanity, warns Stephen Hawking

  • Professor Hawking said people need to work together to tackle the issues

  • These include environmental threats like climate change and diseases

  • He also mentioned  the dangers of people losing jobs to AI and robots

  • The physicist said we have technology capable of destroying the planet

[Note] - World government is not really something he is advocating. Rather, it is the lesser of two evils. Constructing a world government that will not eventually fall prey to corporate control, tyranny, classism / racism / and the continuing division between rich and poor, will be virtually impossible, imo. More importantly, the emergence of technology, AI, robots, computerisation, GMO, etc., all make it both easier for the control by groups at the top, and also makes it more likely that technocracy will overtake the entire globe.

Before we move towards a dangerous world government, we NEED to work out a completely new economics, invested in the ecology and in humanity. Things are already so out of control that, I am certain, technocrats are already working on ways to cull billions of people. Always, these plans arise in secrecy.
