4 out of 6 ain’t bad

OK, I’m cheating with the video a bit, but the fraction is strictly the same, lol. Yes, its fair to say at this point I’m 2/3rd of the way through the radiotherapy treatments, in other words, 4 weeks down, 2 more weeks to go. Fine, there is a 4 week recovery period after that before I’m allowed to consider much, and in the last few days its caught up to me why they say that, as I was warned the tiredness would be cumulative near the end, and yes, they’re right, I’m needing those afternoon naps more now than I did a couple of weeks ago, so what its going to be like by the time I get closer to the end, dont ask.

Tomorrow I will definitely need a good nap, as I’m out tomorrow evening for someone’s birthday do, and though I wont be the centre of attention, he will be, I know questions are going to be asked about me, so… But yes, it has to be done at some point, and this is as gentle a way to do it as I  can think of, as all know at least. No, I havent come to a decision about how dressed up I want to get yet. Part of me wants to do it properly, part of me is asking whether I’m up to that, so will rank as late call, I’m sure.

The other slight connection to the blog title concerns golf. A lovely guy runs a couple of fantasy golf contests during the season, and yes, my absence from the mens one while everything was going on, means I’m well down the field (aided by some less than brilliant picks), but incredibly the ladies, with 1 tournament to go (currently in 3rd round of 4), despite all that, I’m in 5th place! No, there arent a million entries, but a lot more than 5, lol. The fact the ladies dont play every week has probably helped!

Mind, not for the first time, my player doing the best, is my reserve, who I dont need! If she counted, I’d have 1-2 at present, lol. Ah well… my reserve picking on the ladies has been quite something this season.

OK, video time. A bit of Meatloaf, which I’m sure I wont be eating tomorrow night, lol

Like a quake out of hell

Well, I’d planned to do a bit of a wish fantasy piece for tomorrow’s EEG scan, but Mother Nature has seemingly decided that would be far too boring, and decided to inflict a noticeable earthquake on LA. Given its seemingly recent, details are a bit vague but I’ve seen values anywhere between 6.4, and 6.6 on the Richter scale. Given most of my friends based in the area still seem to be posting on Social Media, its fair to assume the end of the world hasnt happened?  I’m not really up on the nature of the scale, but hey, if people in Los Angeles are commenting on it, it must be significant at least?

No, I’m not going to go hunting for news details to repeat them. If you’re reading this on posting night, the news agencies will be my only option, so you might as well go to them. If you’re reading it after that date, well, you’ll still find out more from Google, or whichever search engine you use.

I must admit, the first time I visited LA, I experienced my first earthquake. The fact that not even one local blinked at events just shows how comparatively minor it must have been. I hope there are no major injuries (or worse) relating to this, but if ever an area is built to stand something like this, its LA.

Sadly, I suspect the Orange, Russian bewigged one will be too busy with his dictator style military parade in Washington to know, or care about this, in truth. But please, LA, stay safe, OK, I want you there to visit next year!

OK, the video. No, I’m sure its not an earthquake from hell, and that the only bats in the area tonight will either be at Dodgers, or Angels stadium. But all the same, classic Meatloaf!

You took the words right out…

Gives a clue to the video, though this is about something a bit more than taking words out of your mouth.

Mind, as this article does point out, the success rate was somewhere between 10 and 40% in various tests, so its hardly yet at the point of scariness, but give them time, and I suspect…those numbers will go up lol. The original idea for this was to provide a brain-computer interface for those unable to use a computer by more traditional means.

But of course, anything that links the human mind to a computer offers other options, especially to those unscrupulous folk who might be tempted to extract information that way. And that led to this experiment, clearly. Of course, if you have some idea of what you’re involved in, its a whole different matter to a covert attack on your mind, but… and as I say, efficiency results are hardly dramatic yet, but again…

Still, this is still not strictly mind control, these people arent being made to do something they dont want to, well not literally anyway. Strictly they are, giving up private information to people they would rather not know it! And of course, for those inclined like me, it still wouldnt be the computer controlling your mind, or transforming your body into obedient robot lol! Again, probably in time they will, just a matter of how long I suspect?

Oh, and yes, before you ask, I love the headset, would love to give it a try, with or without controlling a computer while wearing it. And as for knowing that it was trying to seek details hidden within my mind, well its a mind control fetishist’s dream, isnt it? Helmet would still be better than headset lol!

The video, well a few months ago I promised some Meatloaf, and finally, here it is.
