For help on how to follow a comic title,
Thanks. I don’t like to brag.
I’m with Dad on this. I started work just before email started to be used where I worked, in 1995. We got email (such as it was) in 1996.
It had been the case, depending on the time of day, that to send a message to someone at head office, it might actually be faster to send it by mail (mail was delivered to desks in the morning) than to send a fax (faxes were delivered in the afternoon).
Now everyone can do it instantly, instant responses are also wanted.
Still though, when I get official letters from companies or government, they still manage to arrive only a week (at least) after the supposed date the letter was sent…
“The Babel fish is small, yellow and leech-like, and probably the oddest thing in the Universe. It feeds on brainwave energy received not from its own carrier but from those around it. It absorbs all unconscious mental frequencies from this brainwave energy to nourish itself with. It then excretes into the mind of its carrier a telepathic matrix formed by combining the conscious thought frequencies with the nerve signals picked up from the speech centres of the brain which has supplied them. The practical upshot of all this is that if you stick a Babel fish in your ear you can instantly understand anything said to you in any form of language. The speech patterns you actually hear decode the brainwave matrix which has been fed into your mind by your Babel fish.Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mindbogglingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen it to see it as a final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God.The argument goes something like this: “I refuse to prove that I exist,” says God, “for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.”“But,” says Man, “the Babel fish is a dead giveaway isn’t it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and therefore, by your own arguments, you don’t. QED.”“Oh dear,” says God, “I hadn’t thought of that,” and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.“Oh, that was easy,” says Man, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white and gets killed on the next zebra crossing.”
The Toys are more expensive and you have to work to get them.
Settling down, with such a nice guy, too.
If the Badger can’t find a way out, I’d saying dying was a certainty
This is from 30 years ago, when the Internet as we now know it didn’t exist, and social media was still some way off.Amazing how it predicts the narcissism to come.
He wouldn’t get very far though if he didn’t have a consider number of enablers in the Republican Party that were prepared to overlook not only his lack of character and lack of morals, but also the latent criminality.
Thankfully while Trump has clearly failed every ethics test going, others in the public sector haven’t.
