Special Treat

It's no good.

I have scanned and scanned these special treats displays. 


I have yet to find one named "Avoid Christmas"

Primordial

Here's a popular thing, this placing stones on top of stones.

I wonder. Was it ever thus? Did Neanderthal caveman and cave woman do this in their spare time? If you had walked this beach twenty thousand years ago, would you have seen this sort of thing?

Answers on a scrap of Vellum, please.

One of those things

Every now and then I see something that merits a picture.

Moustakallis restaurant is just excellent. We've eaten here lots of times. The owner does indeed have a Big Moustache.

Old tech

Yesterday, here is your shiny new computer.

Tomorrow, it is in the skip, covered in leaves.

Strange how your new computer is no faster than any of the others you have owned and thrown away.

The Bank of England

Have a look inside the Bank of England.

There's no gold. Where has all the gold gone? We sold it all and we can't afford to buy gold any more.

There is only piles of paper (and we can print as much of that as we need).

Does a bank need gold anyway? Does it even need paper? Maybe the Bank of England could just contain a computer with a number inside it.

Then we could make the number anything we want.

Boring

Just imagine living somewhere that was like this* every single day. Would it be wonderful, or would you pine for grey drizzle or a light frost?

*The Akemas peninsula, Cyprus.
