Merry Early Christmas!

I’ve just been into the Co-Op for a couple of things and they had Christmas-themed carrier bags; I tell you, shops start celebrating Christmas earlier each year…

Hours of endless fun and entertainment…

TROTT's Campaign for Political Correctness 3

Follow-up to TROTT's Campaign for Political Correctness 2 from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

The third installment of Politically Correct terms:

Christmas

It’s not “Merry Christmas” anymore, it’s Merry Capitalist Winter Festival Promoting Gift Receiving, Goodwill to All, and Annoying the Neighbours by Singing at Them.

Smoker

Someone isn’t a “smoker”, they’re a damned fool.

Little Old Lady

Someone isn’t a “little old lady”, they’re a lady located at an altitude where the atmosphere is thicker and easier to breathe with a high level of wisdom and knowledge.

Cats are always underfoot

Cats aren’t underfoot, cats are friendly.

Until next time…

TROTT's Campaign for Political Correctness 2

Follow-up to TROTT's Campaign for Political Correctness 1 from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

Some more terms that should be brought in to practice:

Idiot

Someone isn’t “an idiot”, they just arrive at intellectual conclusions at a more leisurely pace than some other people.

Colour Blind

Someone isn’t colour blind, the rest of us just suffer from the delusion that red and green (substitute as appropriate) are not the same colour.

Racist

Someone isn’t “racist”, they just deserve to be given a clip round the ear and told to be reasonable.

Short

Someone isn’t “short”, they are located at an altitude where the atmosphere is thicker and easier to breathe.

More later…

Strict Maximum Speed Limit

I can envisage a lot of accidents happening because of excessive browsing speeds, so I’ve decided to impose a strict maximum speed limit on browsers of this blog:

Maximum Speed Limit: c

I ask you to please respect this, because I really don’t want to have to lay speed bumps…

TROTT's Campaign for Political Correctness 1

I encountered a cryptic snide comment today, that can only be interpreted as the speaker objecting to the term “disability awareness”, which to me is perfectly acceptable. This got me thinking about Politically Correct ways to cover touchy subjects…

Wheelchair

I also encountered objection to “they are in a wheelchair”, so now they are a regretful incumbent of a bespoked perambulatory replacement.

Fat

Someone isn’t “fat”, they have a mass that is unfortunately greater than what would be considered by the majority of people to be an average value.

Blackboard

Always been touchy, this one, so now it’s a board for the application of chalk having a coating that absorbs a majority of incident visible light wavelengths.

Whiteboard

And because I’m an Equal Opportunities Political Corrector, a “whiteboard” is now a board for the application of special marker pens having a coating that reflects a majority of incident visible light wavelengths.

Physically Disabled

Someone isn’t “disabled” or even “differently abled” (everyone is “differently abled”; it’s meaningless…) they are unfortunately in possession of a physical form that is regretfully incapable of performing all the tasks which many other people take for granted.

That’s all for now…

A USB Hub that can blow up the world

Writing about web page http://www.iwantoneofthose.com/armageddon-usb-hub/index.html

I just bought this on I Want One Of Those. It has to be the best 4-port USB hub ever.

Armageddon USB Hub

It’s been very well made (the case appears to be metal, not plastic). The keys are real keys, and you even have to flip the switches and turn the key in the correct order (top right, bottom right, key, button) to trigger the explosion sound effect. I think it’s great.

I was also bored enough to film it…
