Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Should we be mad or sad at stupid parents?

We’ve already seen the damage that a combination of lies, misinformation, and stupid people can do, thanks to the actions of one man followed by a load of anti-vaxers (and bandwagon jumping celebrities who saw a way to get a lot of free publicity by ‘educating’ their moronic fans, and advising them not to vaccinate, like them).

Years of damage need to be undone, as vaccination depends on a population participating, and the lies of one man’s discredited report have disrupted that.

If you haven’t heard, there’s no link between autism and vaccination!

There’s a similar mythology spread by some, based on belief rather than evidence, that certain types of radio emissions are harmful.

As usual, they emphasise their nonsense by claiming children are at risk, and trying to shame anyone who doesn’t support their dogma.

Reading some of their nonsense, they’ll even try to scare non-believers by listing the same hazards for non-ionising radiation (ie radio waves) as for ionising radiation (ie nuclear radiation).

It’s hard to fault uneducated parents who are confused, and think they’re doing the right thing. On the other hand, it gives the loonies credibility and traction, and as we saw in the case of vaccination, CAN cause actual harm to others.

Those of working/trained in these industries and subjects can only look on, and shake our heads as we read news such as…

Parents remove children from island school over 5G mast

I suspect a study of such reactions would show more verifiable damage from such responses than could be shown (via factual data) to be due to any of the supposed harmful effects being claimed via belief rather than independently verifiable scientific evidence.

It should also be realised that such actions could hinder testing of secret/covert projects which can’t be tested in public.

Death Ray

Tin foil wrapped kids

I wonder if those same ‘caring and concerned’ parents realise that we live in a world saturated by radio waves of all frequencies, covering the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Just taking them away from ONE transmitter is not going to prevent them being permeated by such signals.

See, for example: Revealed: 5G rollout is being stalled by rows over lampposts 

Maybe they don’t have any lampposts on the island ūüėČ

I wonder if anyone has told them about Cosmic Rays, constantly bombarding us all 24/7, and which ARE dangerous if they hit a cell nucleus, and can cause mutations. Don’t tell them that despite the number, few such collisions cause harm, but they do happen. Better to tell them that nothing stops Cosmic Rays, not even the whole of the planter Earth – they just pass straight through it (and you if you’re standing in their path).

Those parents will have to wrap their kids in tin foil to protect them (even though it doesn’t work, but don’t tell them that either).

Think of the children

Think of the children

While many think wrapping things in tin foil stops electromagnetic radiation getting to them, in the belief that it forms a Faraday Cage around them, sadly, that’s not the reality, and it takes a lot more than that to do the job.

In fact, even genuine Faraday Cages, or screened rooms, don’t work unless very carefully designed, built, and maintained.

Rooms costing tens of thousands of £££ can be defeated if not.

This was one of my businesses, and we once found such a room installed in Faslane (yes, THAT Faslane) and completely ineffective.

The failure was not found by tests (which apparently the room passed on first installation) but when someone noticed the painters finishing the cosmetic part of the install were… LISTENING TO MUSIC ON THEIR RADIO!

In a screened room – no one can hear a radio.

Technically, everything was correct – apart from some corrosion/oxidisation which had developed on the edges where the walls and doors contacted one another, due to the time it took to build the room.

Damned activists – no sense of humour, and no credibility

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I’m really coming to the conclusion that activists are becoming increasingly desperate to protect their ‘jobs’.

While there was a place for them in the past, when the public was poorly educated about their issues, and there wasn’t the amount of information floating around that we now have thanks to the Internet, these single-minded agenda groups are becoming tiresome.

While it may be my opinion that many of them are almost redundant today, such has been the progress of the issues they were once able to campaign reasonably for, they are beginning to turn into the ‘Nazi Hunters’ of their chosen causes.

That’s NOT a derogatory comment about Nazi Hunters, merely a realisation that their time has come, and that the last few genuine Nazi war criminals are so old, and have evaded justice for so long, that there is no real point in pursuing them. Most have lost their minds, or are so ill that even if found completely guilty, no court will send them to jail (and have to look after them).

A couple of activist items in the news suggests they need to be viewed with care now, as their claims become increasingly dubious.

First was the calim of Greggs vegan sausage rolls being dumped daily…

Rumours are circulating on social media that a couple are buying up vegan sausage rolls from Greggs and binning them in protest – but staff are denying it.

A Facebook post by Vegan Glasgow states that a man and woman have been regularly buying a large quantity of vegan sausage rolls from Greggs in Buchanan Bus Station and throwing them directly in the bin.

The post reads: “Vegan Glasgow has been contacted today by more than one of our community of page followers about a man and woman who go into Greggs at Buchanan Bus Station, Glasgow every day in the morning and buy 40 Vegan Sausage Rolls and put them ALL in the bin!

Confusion over claims Glasgow Greggs’ customers ‘binning’ ¬£40 of vegan sausage rolls every day

While I’m not touching Facecrook to check, there seems to be no evidence in the form of pics or video to support this.

If there is, it’s certainly not mentioned in the articles, so Vegan Glasgow loses any credibility for not providing evidence, which would b easy enough to provide from any mobile phone nowadays.

Then there was the silly reaction to a bit of fun from Poundland…

It’s the thought that counts when giving presents – or is it?

Discount retailer Poundland has caused controversy with its latest Valentine’s Day gift, a heart-shaped package with nothing in it.

The Gift of Nothing, naturally priced at ¬£1, is intended as “a bit of fun”, says the retailer.

But Friends of the Earth and other campaign groups have complained that whatever Poundland was thinking about, it certainly wasn’t the environment.

Julian Kirby, Friends of the Earth’s lead campaigner on plastics, criticised its use of “wasteful plastics”, adding: “Let’s hope folly like this goes unloved and doesn’t reappear.”

Another campaigner, Sian Sutherland of A Plastic Planet, said: “This product is designed to go straight into the bin, but will last for 500 years.

“It is a symbol of everything that is wrong with our view of the world.”

Poundland ‘gift of nothing’ sparks criticism

Their logic is so badly flawed I’m tempted not to point out that…

Had there been ‘something’ in the packaging, then packaging would have been binned.

As it is, the packaging IS the something!

So I suspect less of those will go in the bin as people keep the joke item as a fun memory or keepsake.

In fact, if you think about it and apply the activist’s logic, this is a product they should be ENDORSING…

After all, it actually has NO PACKAGING AT ALL!


Like I say…
