We wont need no education!

But no, before you ask, the video isnt Pink Floyd! Lol!

Beyond a few special people, most of my finds on Facebook, and Twitter nowadays tend to come down to pot luck! Those near the top when I look in, or on those ‘you may have missed’ feeds on Twitter, which I guess play to my favorites anyway? So yes, nowadays, the random ones tend to be the ‘pot luck’ factor, of being near the top when I log in, and yes, the Tweet that led me to this was one of those.

https://lifeboat.com/blog/2017/06/scientists-claim-to-upload-knowledge-into-the-brain-using-matrix-style-device

Yes, I would love to have that done to me, but I guess that will surprise no one? Yes, wouldnt it be so much easier if we could learn new information in life, by a method like this? I know, there are plenty who would say no, but me, I couldnt learn enough that way, believe me!

And for people like me, its not just the complex stuff (though it would be very handy for that) that I’d love to learn that way, but yes, maybe I could get my head around the metric measurement system used generally here in Europe now, as opposed to the good old Imperial system that I grew up with, and thankfully the US still uses! I can cope when they are all in the same unit, but when you get questions, and one measurement is in millimeters, another in centimeters, and others in meters, yes, my brain goes to mush! I know, feet, yards, and miles are more complex, but at least I’ve grown up with them all my life.

So, if something could upload this knowledge into my mind, by brain stimulation, using electricity, yes, win, win for me! So yes, if those scientists want someone they can try all that out on, and they can even make it a lengthy process if they wish, feel free to let me know! Oh fine, the longer the process, the better, but… 😉

Right, video time. They say this is rare, and they’re right, Gary Numan smiles, thats rare! Oh, and a very young Billy Currie trying to look cool too!

Turn me into the perfect wife, and mother, please!

I have a friend who thinks I’ll make the perfect step mother for his children. Yes, as I’m sure he’s unlikely to read this, I’ll happily question his sanity on that matter. Me, who has very happily never had any children in her life, as a mother? Yes, fine, stop laughing now…maybe?

The other snag for me, is that I am thoroughly out of practice in all other issues relating to motherhood! Yes, those little things like being the perfect cook, and everything else, hopelessly out of practice. I’m the only one in the house thats working, so the others tend to do the meals. And fine, even when they’re away, like next week, its going to be meals, of the ready cooked kind, because of the time factor, by the time I get home from work, and the fact I’m hopelessly out of practice at doing anything more.

And yes, I’m talking years, and lots of them since I last did any real, serious cooking, about 15 in all honesty. So, someone thinking I make perfect mother material, hmm? Of course, I guess I can become good mother material, with time, and practice, but yes, there are times when I wish I could be turned into the perfect 50’s housewife, just like that, a la Stepford method ideally! Fine, I’d enjoy that far too much, but why not?

I dont know, can a 58 year old, who has never had kids, has done limited housekeeping skills in many years, and so much more, become the perfect mother? Seriously? It may well be one of those situations where I’ll jump in the water, and swim like a duck, as I guess when something needs to be done, and you get into a groove, it becomes easier?

But yes, what I’m saying is, if anyone knows of a handy neural download, or a complete mental makeover, that would make me at least a semi decent mother, then please, do it to me, asap! Stepford wife supreme would be heavenly, but anything that gives me the skills to be the near perfect home maker, yes please! My wonderful friend, Stacie is saying she’s going to do just that to me, but sadly, I think she’s kidding!

Oh, fine, I have an incentive, lets face it. Who wouldnt want to be a step mum in California, lets face it? Its just that I want to at least be good at it, for his sake, and his children’s sake too, but as things stand, hmm?

So yes, if anyone knows any method that can turn me into a good housewife/working wife, and mum, let me know, I think I might need it! Fine, I’m sure I do, but…

Right, the video. Well, you know me, I love all things vintage, and yes, being ‘transformed’ into the dream 50’s mum/housewife, would be heavenly. In truth, my heart is probably in the 30’s, but of course, the whole ‘dream mother’ scenario of Stepford is so 50’s, that…

Not that this woman would make the perfect 50’s mum, it has to be said. Perfect sex kitten, absolutely, mind. Folks, let me introduce the absolutely amazing, Eartha Kitt!

Money, thats what I want

Firstly, before we get to the serious part of the blog, for those who wish to know. The dating agency is fine for chat, but anything more than that, not very likely. I’ll give it a few more days, then either dip in, and see if the sapphic side brings any more joy, or just give up. I suspect it being a free site means there is less need to move things along, but anyway…

So, if anyone happens to know a wealthy (or moderately wealthy) person looking for a 57 year old partner in LA, either as an equal, or as a submissive, let them/me know, because that would be my dream!

Right, to the blog title.

Just after Christmas, I got head hunted (yes, even 57 year old people get it sometimes) by some financial advisory company. Not because I’m brilliant with money, but because I have good telephone, and person to person talking skills, so I was told. Where this was different, was no telephone interview or anything like that, just a request to watch what they call a webinar (Yes, I might like to be technologically controlled, but what I know about tech stuff, hmm?) yesterday lunch time about the role.

In fact, it was quite entertaining, partly because the guy was not only passionate about what he was talking about, he threw in moments of levity too. But yes, in the end, his main selling point was how much you could earn as a financial advisor with his company. Yes, seriously, 6 figure sums, and I do mean in pounds! And not small ones, either. And the opportunity to work around the world, which yes, I’d love. No, sadly, they have no LA office at present, but anyway…

In truth, what it would come down to, is getting people to put money into this company’s investment plans, and seeing their money grow. And I guess, with the commissions they get, both sides prosper? But yes, sweet little me, talking people to invest that way? No, I know…! I mean, I swing it around the other way, if I use a little female charm, flutter an eyelash or two, could I do it by sweet talk? I’m pretty sure if I was 25, and good looking, then I probably could. But I’m 57, no stunner, so I dont know? After that, I got sent some personality test (McQuaig?) to do, but I’m sure my results arent aggressive enough for them, but I’ll find out in the next few days.

But fine, the thing that amused me the most? If I get selected, and if I get through a face to face interview, its 5 days of intensive training in Malta, before you head off to wherever in the world you want to work. Me, with the choice, I’d probably pick San Francisco, and hope they eventually open up an office down the coast, and I could transfer! But alright, I suspect my vision of intensive training, and theirs, might be miles apart. Oh yes, ‘educated’ by a fast learning machine, downloading information directly into my mind, oh please! No, I know, boring learning stuff from paper, but I can dream. Especially as I cant wildly imagine reaching that point, anyway.

But yes, the focus of it all, how much money you could earn, which led me to this video

A new way of learning languages

Yes, a blog inspired by a Facebook passing of words, with a company I’ve followed for a while, where whoever does their social media, seems a good person. Hager Group, stand up, and be proud.

They are a group who design and create equipment for electrical installations, a subject matter of no interest to me whatsoever. Yes, that comment is very tongue in cheek, though maybe the type of electrical installation I’d like to be connected up to, isnt one that they design lol!

In the last few days, they’ve actually been advertising for staff on Facebook, the snag for me being that none at present are available in the UK. Plenty in France, and Germany, but I’ve never learnt German in my life, and its about 40 years since I used French on any sort of basis. Frustrating, I know, but such is life at present, I guess? But yes, wouldnt it so appeal to me, in so many ways, if I could just get a neural download, in either, or both languages, and get a job that way? I know, give it another 20 years or so, and you probably will, but for now…

Oh, and fine, I might be one of very few people in the world who would really enjoy that being downloaded into their mind, but besides all that…As they told me, I dont have to go ‘into the Matrix’ to get a job with them, though I wouldnt mind doing so, all the same. Fine, I’ve sent my CV to them, on a chance basis, in case any UK jobs come up, but for now…

Also, given the current imbalance in what jobs people can do, and what jobs people are needed to do, wouldnt it be great if I could be trained in that way for a new career? 😉

Oh, I’ve got an interview on Thursday, another call centre job, hopefully, assuming I get it, it works out better than the last one, which I’m trying to forget! No, I’m sure its not my dream job, but I’m not sure what is at the moment. Well, mad scientist’s guinea pig, but beyond that…

Oh fine, you know me, any excuse to play some OMD. I guess this fits in more with forgetting the last awful job, but its fair to say that the same machine that makes you forget everything, would be the one to reeducate you as well. Interesting combo, the extended Part 1, the normal length Part 2, and the much less heard parts 3 and 4, far shorter than the others. Just listen to as little, or as much as you wish.

And yes, if anyone does know of a way to brainwash, upgrade my thoughts, or both, let me know, I’d love the whole journey! 😉

(Part 1 is the best, but part 3 especially sounds like a brainwashing machine being used, so…)

If I was (40 years younger)

Anyone got a spare rejuvenation chamber, or something? Because, believe me, if I was 17, and not 57, I’d be getting signed up for the Electrical Engineering course at Loughborough as fast as I could! Yes, the day really was that interesting, and as for the labs, and things… 😉

Fine, if things play out, and I can start the Foundation course this year, at 57, it might yet happen. But in all honesty, I’m not sure how the brain is going to react to being reintroduced to serious studying after 40 years, which might be a snag. Of course, if someone wants to give me a neural upgrade, an implant, or just a good dose of suitable AI, hard wired into my mind, I’ll take it, happily! Yes, I really was that impressed with the place, loved Will’s enthusiasm (and he’s a lovely guy, full stop), and the labs looked amazing, and one or two chambers, and machines certainly tickled my fancy, I must say! Yes, fine, both to work on, and to work on me, oh, I wish!

Yes, thats a big if. 99% of the people at the Open Day are looking to start courses in 2016. I might not have been the only one hoping to start this autumn, but there would only have been very few, at this point hoping for that. Will is going to check for me, and see if there are still vacancies on the Foundation course for this year, and if there are, the temptation may be too great. Though given its been 40 years, and I have forgotten most of the ‘clever stuff’ I learnt back then, it may be a step too far, if I’m being realistic.

If its next year, then I suspect it wont happen, assuming I’m not made redundant again at the wrong time! Clearly, if I am in a mundane job, I might throw it up, and start studying, but 4 years, from the age of 58, sounds even crazier to me! Mind, its pretty crazy contemplating it at 57, I guess?

But yes, regardless of events, whether I ever get to go to a University or not, ever again, I’m glad Will talked me into going, it was a marvellous experience, so glad I did it. Of course, if I got connected up to one of those delicious machines, my intelligence might get a considerable boost, and I could succeed, but this is science fact, not fiction lol! Or yes, get me in a rejuvenation chamber, make me 17 again, and I’ll crack it for myself.

Thanks to all at Loughborough University, for the whole experience

The video, yes, the clue, for once of late, is in the title

Competency questions, piece of cake!

I wish!

No, dont worry, I still hate the things, its just that something amazing happened this morning, I passed one! I know, cant last, but as long as I impress on Tuesday (proper interview and assessment time) morning, maybe I can forget about them for a while?

Oh, put it this way, despite this morning, if someone offered me a neural download, that would solve all my issues with them, I’d snatch their hand off. I know, letting someone play with my mind, but hey, I’d secretly enjoy that anyway! And yes, that is regardless of it being just the designated download, or something more attached. Lets face it, at my age, I’m hardly pin up material. Unless…I’m also getting a new, younger, upgraded body, in which case he’s free to take control of my mind, especially if that new body looks just like Harlow’s!

Yes, I know, not going to happen, but a girl can dream!

But otherwise, frustrations with said issue continue, I’m just too old to learn new tricks by standard methods! Still, judging by what will happen on Tuesday, the hard part is over! Famous last words, and all that!

On other news, summer seems to have finally arrived, though how long it lasts might be another matter! Went out earlier in a top, and skirt, and nothing else, wow! Well, actually, the top is a very short (above the knees) dress, but at my age, its a top! Maybe I should, and maybe that download should include a ‘sexy thing’ mode as well, but anyway… If I had that Harlow body, I’d have no qualms, mind control or not, just saying… 😉

OK, fine, the video. Well, I want a cute, young body, with blonde hair, and a sexy attitude. So…not Aqua, but Postmodern Jukebox, and their take on said song.

There may, or may not be another blog before Sunday, we will have to wait and see. But there will definitely be one then, as its a very sad Harlow anniversary.

Humans and computers, how long until total interface?

Alright, fine, I suspect some of you want to know how the hypnotherapy training module went, so briefly…

It went well, I have now hypnotised someone myself, as opposed to the more regular dose of me being the one in trance. So fine, yes, someone did put me under as their test, but the new experience was me, putting someone else into trance. It went well, and I’ve signed up for the full course. So by the end of next March, I should be a certified hypnotherapist, wow! Well, I wanted the chance of an interesting new career, and this would definitely be that.

I know that most of my readers on here are across ‘the pond’ from me, but just in case someone is local to Yorkshire, I’m looking for volunteers to let me practice with my training script. Just a good feeling, and relaxation one, nothing more than that. Anyone who is able to, email me at stephmajor8@hotmail.com, or comment here, and I’ll get in touch. If you email, use a title that wont set the spam filter off, pretty please.

But OK, this is the mind control/sci fi blog, so lets have a bit of that. Its hard to believe now, but just 30 years or so ago, mobile phones, were large, chunky, and the battery life was about 3 hours. Yes, things have changed a lot from those things, that could only do calls, texts, and nothing else! Nowadays we have tiny phones that do all that, take pictures, connect to the internet, and everything else! And thats before you get into tablets, and the like!

But nowadays, when you see some people on the trains, or the buses, it doesnt always look like people, and their phones are separate items, more like surgically attached. And yes, give it 10 years or so, they probably will be part of you, which leads me to this article http://www.deepstuff.org/the-coming-merge-of-human-and-machine-intelligence/

Yes, for now, you might think you have control of your machines, but at some point in the future, who will really be in control might be a moot point! Alright, fine, I might enjoy the machine controlling me, but anyway…OK, OK, I would enjoy the machine controlling me, so…

Just think, 20 years from now, the desire to be a robot, or at least be a cyborg might not be a possibility, but reality. Sadly, I’ll be too old (if still alive) to care by then.

OK, the video, no relevance to this whatsoever! But this is fun, and definitely proves Sting has a sense of humour, what more can I say?
