The Long-Snouted Weevil

Sylvia Shawcross

Well, here we are—living in the New Abnormal in the first world nations trying to figure out what to do with those little plastic tabs they put on milk cartons without being wasteful because God knows that even though “they” say “they” recycle things who really believes “they” are going to recycle those wee things?

Now, I know there’s all that stuff about nuclear war annihilation and doom and gloom out there but really… we can only manage what we have the power to control and these plastic tabs have been driving us crazy for years.

You’d think we could at least manage these things if nothing else.

Truth is, these little plastic tabs are gonna end up littering ocean tides in the Philippines being eaten inadvertently by the Long-Jawed Mackerel who will keel over and die which the media will exploit to convince us yet again the planet is dying from climate change.

Now, maybe the planet is dying from climate change but it certainly is NOT because of the Long-Jawed Mackerel which swim around with their large mouths open looking for food much like humans with jaws dropping at the price of food. The only difference being they get plankton and we get ramen noodles.

Obviously “we” will have to figure out a use for those little plastic tabs to save the planet because “they” certainly aren’t going to do it, now are they? We know this. We’re not complete fools. Except when it comes to elections and stuff. Then we’re blithering idiots driven by emotion and misery and media influencers. We’ve learned it is what “looks” good and not what “is” good that matters.

We know this because Boris Johnson was elected because he had wild hair and we were feeling wild at the time and Justin Trudeau has lost all sorts of popularity since he did his new look-at-me haircut. That much at least we’ve learned. These politicians in turn appoint like-minded diplomats and hire PR consultants and the rest is history… or the end of history maybe. Hard to tell at this point. However, I digress.

The important thing is the crickets. And the cockroaches. Oh, I know I’ve written about this before but it is the only thing of any real relevance in the world. I mean, to the common person in the first world who gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and does something in between.

Or maybe not.

“Doing something” all depends on where you are on the chart of demoralization and despair allotted to your particular country at this point in the Great Regret.

If you’re in the freezing to death/unemployed/civil war/famine stage of it all, you probably aren’t doing a darn thing but staring at the ceiling in a fit of existential angst. And eating chocolate Easter eggs in August fresh off the boats from China that have been sitting idle in harbours for about seven months.

But they were very cheap—for chocolate after all. And that matters.

But never mind all that. It’s about cricket consumption.

I know some of you might think the most pressing concern has nothing to do with crickets and is related to global climate, nuclear armageddon, wars, market meltdowns, civil unrest, gender confusions, racism, genocide, overpopulation, plagues and magnetosphere rollercoaster pole reversal solar flare minimum incoming asteroids and stuff, but really… We have to eat.

Now, I am very upset about the prospect of Sunday dinners with cockroaches. No, not the relatives, the main dish. I refuse to eat a cockroach. Or the milk of cockroaches which is apparently a thing. Or a cricket. Or a flat-faced long-horn beetle.

What kind of tasty gravy can you make to serve with a long-snouted weevil?

Oh the dilemma… I’m telling you, if we’re put in the position of having to survive on Spittlebug burgers then why are we even bothering to save the planet?

And it is all as if we were in charge of the world. We never were. But you know that.

The cockroaches, knowing they are the only beings that would survive nuclear war, have just been humouring us all this time. They are indubitably unpleased by the idea of being milked but since it takes 1000 cockroaches, delicate microsurgery and many many days to make 3.5 ounces of milk I’m absolutely certain they’re not that worried.

But then again, here in the New Abnormal maybe these high and mighty cockroaches shouldn’t be so very smug about not being cost-effective as a food source.

We humans have a way of choosing the hard way every single time. Like using hydrogen for fuel in Germany or paying farmers not to farm just before the famine starts or encouraging wars in foreign lands to interrupt microprocessor manufacturing.

It is almost like we “want” life to be difficult. (Or “they” do—whoever “they” are) It gives us something to complain about on YouTube and TikTok so we can feel we are part of the herd. We’re just not happy without something to complain about.

And we’ve got SO MUCH to complain about now—we couldn’t be happier.

However, that being said…. The eating cockroaches thing is the last straw.

Yet there is always hope. There is no doubt in my mind that once we’ve all become obedient slaves to the global system and hungry enough there will be plenty of people willing to milk cockroaches for a top up on their digital currency account. Which will of course be the turning point for the revolution to start.

Because you gotta know how far you’ve fallen in your Social Credit Score and how low it has to get before you find yourself working with a lactating roach, a magnifying glass and a miniature breast pump for a living. But never mind all that…

Sylvia Shawcross writes things. Sometimes. For the fun of it. Despite the ghastly world which she completely fails to understand for the most part/

I don’t think we have to worry about anyone but the wokest of the woke falling for the bug-eating psyop. Dinner must have a certain aesthetic appeal – which means no more than four legs per customer.

Also, it must have been “cute” when in its childhood. And there is nothing “cute” about a larva. People will not dine on ugliness.

But then, if it comes to cannibalism, does that mean the homely will be passed over in favor of the attractive?

Like using hydrogen for fuel in Germany

May I ask what is wrong with hydrogen vehicles? I had a chance to test drive a hydrogen car, well guess, in Germany. If the hydrogen were harvested using clean energy, then this method to power vehicles is the cleanest so far in existence.
So if neither we go back to ride horses or someone re-invents Nikola Tesla’s free energy to power all vehicles with (which is not going to happen as long as there are greedy usurers controlling the world) it is the best technology we have.
Hydrogen vehicles are basically electro vehicles – but without battery – so no lithium and other materials that are as bad (or maybe even more) to nature as fossil fuels are needed for them.

The primary intention is not reducing pollution or cost (for the owners). It is marketing another version of private vehicles for profit. Well organised mass transport, hydrogen or otherwise, is another matter.

“If the hydrogen were harvested using clean energy”.

Water engines have been rumoured to be possible but surpressed for decades. David Mamet, who wrote ‘Wag the Dog’ and is thus clearly a big insider, wrote a TV movie about one.

It’s also long been suspected that ‘The Hindenburg’ was no accident but a stage event to discredit hydrogen’s use in transport.

This evokes a hazy memory of a comedy routine by the late, great Richard Pryor.

As best I recall, he mentions an elderly aunt or grandmother who always brought her famous rice pudding with raisins to family gatherings.

Pryor jokes that the problem was that if one looked closely, one realized that more than a few of those “raisins” had legs.  😎 

This, in turn, reminds me of something my adult relatives would say if we kids objected to an unpleasant or revolting ingredient or feature of some dish: “But that’s the best part!”

In our brave new world, the insect-mongering authorities would insist that the legs on those “raisins” are the best part!

On my acre surrounded by agave (mescal cactus) and maiz fields of SW Mexico, I have the perfect solution to those milk tabs That is, if I were to buy milk which is unlikely. I have a pre-used 55 gallon steel drum into which my burnables go and are ignited when enough is accumulated. The plastic tabs are made of polyethylene which is composed exclusively of carbon and hydrogen atoms. When combusted it is converted into molecules of water and carbon dioxide, the latter being the gas of life about which plants currently are complaining that it is found in insufficient amounts in the atmosphere.

As to eating crickets, my neighbors do eat a roasted small cricket-like bug referred to as chapulines. They are collected in nets as a cottage industry and found in all the small markets, sold by little old ladies of Zapotec origins. They are definitely not a main course, but rather a quick snack for those on the run, and regarded by the vast majority as quite tasty. I tried them once and thought that they are OK but nothing to write home about, but probably better than Soylent Green where this insect propaganda is probably heading.

Self-sufficiency; doesn’t mean you have to survive on your own; it means that you; as an autonomous sovereign entity; with the right will, right determination and following the right spiritual understanding, is enough not only to survive but grow, heal, and build which itself dispels corruption.

The idea that we need; or our futures are ordained; by a group of corporate ’theys’ is one of the greatest delusions pulled over our modern eyes. Look at tax, they can only tax luxuries, local grass fed butter and basic foods can’t be taxed and used to pay for their corrupting influence. If you buy the basics you can produce the luxuries tax-free. The only reason they exist is because of our ignorance of the true system and their manipulation of it.

“COVID” does not exist as a new or definable disease. It’s merely the usual collection of seasonal flu symptoms given a new name. Referring to it as if it had some discrete properties is counter-factual.

O.T.
Einstein, quoted in a 1929 article in the New York Times…
The ether was invented, penetrating everything, filling the whole of space, and was admitted as a new kind of matter. Thus it was overlooked that by this procedure space itself had been brought to life. It is clear that this had really happened, since the ether was considered to be a sort of matter which could nowhere be removed. It was thus to some degree identical with space itself…
“The characteristics which especially distinguish the general theory of relativity and even more the third stage of the theory, the unified field theory, from other physical theories, are the degree of formal speculation, the slender empirical basis, the boldness in theoretical construction ,and finally the fundamental reliance on the uniformity of the secrets of natural law and their accessibility to the speculative intellect. It is this feature which appears as a weakness to physicists who incline towards realism or positivism, but is especially attractive, nay, fascinating to the speculative mind.” (Emphasis added).

The above words come direct from Einstein. He presents a glowing boast of his mental powers and mathematical prowess, with a clear bias against empirically determined facts, and against any concept that would breathe life and motion into cosmic space. His form of speculative arrogance and pseudo-intellectualism, with its explanatory monopoly over experimental findings, flooded into science of the post-ether period .Einstein’s relativity, the big-bang theory, quantum entanglement, and similar other-worldly concepts collectively smothered out the flames of critical scientific curiosity and rational dissent, placing theoretical shackles upon just what was possible, and what was not.
(The author continues…)
Now consider how the Einstein theory, invoking a cosmic speed limit, that “empty space” has no creative energy or power, became immensely popular in a quick and easy manner. It had a stifling effect on modern thinking. And where defeatist thinking was insufficient to dissuade the inventive genius or dissenter, there always was censorship, public slander, book-burning and prison. All were used by 20th Century science, medicine and media in the post-ether period, to squelch competing ideas. That same ugly toolkit is still put to work, even today…

The Dynamic Ether of Cosmic Space, by James DeMeo (p342-343)…

The book is definitely not likely to get any positive or even negative reviews – it’s far too heretical…But while reading the above i was thinking how DeMeo makes modern physics seem so similar to Virology…

Working on the sound assumption that what is given a high profile in the media and reported favourably or sympathetically, I wonder how the industrial action will serve the rulers e.g. the refuse worker and rail service strikes. These are spun as triumphalist worker protests but will clearly turn out to be nothing of the sort. There are local rumblings here in Scotland about public service strikes and I guess they are part of that dissolution of services that will feed into the reset. As well as feeding into the cull.

Sarah Cocker has been on ITN News to explain to us uncomprending peasants how the vicious energy price rises are inevitable and have nothing to do with making profits. Furthermore these rises will continue etc. In the light of all this, it is difficult to see how any strike action can have any effect beyond accelerating the impoverishment of the population. Thus the theatre is set for another phony battle in which we will be the lovers.

Local TV “news” informed viewers ‘Monkeypox cases are declining globally’…But dont break out the Champagne, not yet..Stay Vigilant ! There’s a good chance that in a short while cases will be ratcheted up again…Hopes are raised so they can be dashed…

Of course, monkeypox wasnt meant to become a major pandemic…The ‘spread of monkeypox was limited by its telltale blisterings…The toxic jab caused the telltale visual blisters of shingles…The ‘virus’ catalogue contained a description of a ‘rare’ disease that fitted the need for a cover story…Experts rightly figured the monkeypox story would gain heft, and inspire more fear, if fused with claims it was spread by “men who have sex with men”…Homophobia & germ-phobia – The successful 1980s AIDS fear campaign, rerun…

Below the radar: Zika and another virus is on the move in South America…But it’s not a given that it will spread around the world. (Dengue fever, another ‘virus spread by mosquitos’ has been inching its way south from Queensland’s jungles for decades, threatening Sydney…Where’s little billy “mosquito killer” gates when you need him ?)…

There’s a lot of viruses listed in the Virus catalogue: one for every disease, one for every occasion ! (It’s remarkable how they all have mostly the same symptoms)…
The killer viruses share a common feature, they all incubate in deep dark dank places – like the Jungles of Africa and South America; or, occasionally, in The Mysterious East (fishy markets in Wuhan city)…

Most people know that ‘climate change’ means ‘man-made global warming’. They’ve most likely read claims that ‘climate change’ will hurry the spread of viruses currently restricted to deep dark dank places…The spread of monkeypox globally, popping up in cities all over the world at almost the same time – is one such story…

There’ll be a recurrence of such stories during 2020 -2030: A Decade of Pandemics… The masses may remain largely unmoved by ‘climate change’ warnings*, but not when they’re fused with fears about viral pandemics…

The ‘covid’ fear campaign showed how Fear of Contagion can be mobilised – just to get the masses to submit to toxic jabs…That same Fear can be exploited to gain mass support
for implementing the World Economic Forum’s desired economic changes..
Fusing global warming with a decade of viral pandemics, who was the genius ?

** The global warming propagandists surely must have realised by now that Greta has become a negative to their campaign ? Ridicule of Greta is breeding skepticism about The Message !!

Many non meat eaters I know have their suspicions about the vegan agenda. Vegetarians and vegans would not eat bugs anyway, but these questioning herbivores have doubts about the motive behind the promotion of plant based meals.

Not the author’s fault, but I have to admit my sense of humour has moved on.
To me, ordinary, chirpy satire no longer seems appropriate to our present circumstances.

I was listening to the latest John Steppling podcast and he has a go at OffG and in particular Catte’s recent open letter to Vanessa Beeley which apparently doesn’t show the requisite “historical awareness”, nor “a dialectical sense”, also insufficient “Marxism”, and furthermore a blindness to the ongoing relevance of imperialism etc. Shortly after which, Steppling started to drone on about anti-Semitism yet again and I felt like screaming.

COVID was certainly a revelation about the true nature of the power structure at work, but even before that viral scam, the “anti-Semitism” issue had been shown over and over again to be a tool used to discredit and demonise any dissident faction as well as stigmatising all critical thought under the heading “anti-Semitic conspiracy theory”. The “anti-Semitism” card is part of that general movement to push forward the William Golding “Lord of the Flies” view of humanity as inherently evil – by which is meant of course the inherent evil of the masses and never the rulers. Ironically Steppling has also criticised the Golding view but fails to see how the “anti-Semitism” meme feeds into that. And before you know it we will be into the Adornian waffle about “The Authoritarian Personality” and the “fascist tendencies of the masses” and all the rest of that academic drivel.

A true critical outlook should be constantly looking at all previous formations of “historical awareness” and should take very seriously the perfectly correct observation that history is written by the winners. Thus the truth is not only the first casualty of war but also the last too. Indeed the “facts” ceaselessly emphasised after a war should be the very first facts to be doubted. As well as the areas considered taboo.

It isn’t a question of denying anti-Semitism but of looking at how this term, like every other term, is used and whether that use is legitimate or not. I would hold that it is not used legitimately at all now. Or at least not for the main part. Indeed, it is ironically the ones labelled anti-Semitic who are most vulnerable to harassment. Now that is dialectics with a vengeance!

What about cockroach caviar. You know. Those odd looking egg cases hanging off the abdomen tip of the females. Must be delicious. Raw or fried (in vegetable oil, of course).

Will the cockroach milk be stocked in the dairy case next the almond milk? Probably would not be hard for dairy farmers to shift over to cockroaches. With the new nanotechnology it should be easy to retrofit the milking machines to fit cockroaches. Probably need to heat the barn to support tropical cockroaches which are bigger producers. Solar panels could provide the needed energy without taxing the energy grid.

And lastly, has anyone consulted with PETA? Last I heard, PETA was protesting the use of cockroaches in pesticide experiments. I can only imagine how flipped out they are over the idea of eating them.

According to the link in the article

the downsides are that it kills too many cockroaches

cockroach milk isn’t the most ethical drink. According to a co-author of the famous cockroach milk study, making just a single glass of the drink would involve killing thousands of cockroaches

They only once, near the end, consider that “many people would find the idea of drinking cockroach milk unappetizing”.

This brings to mind Kurt Vonnegut’s novel Galapagos, which revolves around the (mis)adventures of the “Nature Cruise of the Century”– a pleasure “science cruise” to the famed Galapagos Islands for affluent persons interested in science and nature.

The novel is well-crafted, but even by Vonnegut standards it’s so grimly dystopian that I don’t think I could read it again, although I recommend it. Anyway, at the moment I just want to observe that the book makes a pretty realistic case that all of the ultra-rich overclass’s amenities, e.g. mega-yachts, exist on the tip of a pyramid of both material and human support services.

When the vital weakest links begin to drop out of the perpetual-motion chain of supplies and services, the impressive luxuries soon become mausoleums.

With the mention of “doom and gloom” nuclear war, I can only add that in over 50 years with the technological power of electron microscopy, no one has ever seen DNA or a gene nor for that matter an atom. How does one split something that has never been seen by anyone? So, I contend, call it a bluff, that while there are big mother bombs filled to the gills with TNT that can do huge local damage, and even the use of uranium, none of it can do what the dooms day experts say – create a nuclear winter.

This is a fearmongering threat they’ve been using since the late 1940s – it’s the “god-complex or syndrome, and works just like the never proven “pathogenic viruses” they parade out to control the masses.

I think that all of science, real science, is altogether hypothesis and theories.

By the reaction when it happens and he results aferwards.. Most chemical processes we do not see and do not need to see, but you live with the results of those processes on a daily basis.
Maybe before you post nonsense, read up about physics and chemistry.

BTW…Atomic energy works, eh? Since you claim that something you can’t see cannot happen, I wonder how the process of splitting atoms in a controlled way in a nuclear reactor works? Care to explain? Or maybe you think they are all fake engines and powered secretly with gasoline or diesel?

There’s no record of anyone seeing (with or without technological aid) an atom. You can believe the voodoo magic all you want, just consider keeping it to yourself (all theory). “So the real reason we can’t see atoms — and we will never be able to see — is because this is impossible for our eye apparatus. Even using the most powerful eye microscope ever created. Even using the most powerful eye microscope yet to be invented.” You know nothing about microscopy and its limits.

It’s quite true. People vastly over-estimate what an optical microscope can do, fascinating though its capabilities might be.

But optical microscopes, which are affordable for most people, are not the only kind of microscope.
Electron microscopes, for example, are much more powerful, but prohibitively expensive, as well as being very problematic for a layman to set up.

technological power of electron microscopy,

your contention

https://www.newscientist.com/article/2279115-this-is-the-most-detailed-look-at-individual-atoms-ever-captured/

my answer

is because this is impossible for our eye apparatus.

your contention

of course, you are right, but you said it yourself (and still keep lying in spite of the facts: technological power of electron microscopy, which clearly is not optical microscopy

Of course, there are many different forms like scanning tunneling microscopy,
or atomic force microscopes

https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/157048-the-first-ever-images-of-a-molecule-as-it-makes-and-breaks-atomic-bonds

BTW. I worked with light microscopes as a lab tech, among other things like various spectrophotometers, radiation counters, etc., etc., since I was sixteen and my wife worked on electron microscopes in one of the Max Planck institutes in Germany for many years. I guess I have some experience, which you are obviously lacking, in microscopy and microscopical techniques.

In a nuclear power plant, this heat is used to boil water in order to produce steam that can be used to drive large turbines. This, in turn, activates generators to produce electrical power. Atomic energy is more correctly called nuclear energy. And the reason is because “atoms” are a construct, an idea which serves as the basis of a building block which has never been seen as I noted. So, you can say that everything consists of “atoms” because that’s the construct used, not because it’s ever been proven.

No one has ever seen and atom, and thus no one has ever split one.

Again, nuclear power plants are nothing more than boiler plants. Uranium is used as a source of energy to produce heat. The question which is very controversial is whether or not this vapor is “radioactive” to the extent it can harm life.

“Read up on….?” Gimme a break. The medical texts all describe what’s visible (tissue changes), and all say ’cause unknown’ and/or ‘multifactorial’ and all say ‘there’s no cure’. The basic biochem stuff is founded on hypothesis.

The atoms, etc, story is a mathematical construct. Just like the insilico viruses. And putting arrows on a picture of something said to be something or other and then printing it in a sciency journal does not prove that this something or other is in fact such.

Any more than the computer generated pictures of the universe or the photos of man on the moon.

There’s a lack of on the ground evidence that those two civilian towns (shanty towns) experienced an unusual bombing event as has been described over the years. U.S. Major Alexander P. de Seversky shortly after the war ended, investigated Japanese towns/cities to determine damage. He indicates that Hiroshima’s damage was no different than other Japanese cities which were firebombed. He says he spoke to the then Japanese emperor who conceded no nuclear bomb had occurred. It was what the US had been doing including with Britain to Germany (Dresden and Hamburg). Concrete (relatively modern) buildings remained intact. The town had mostly wooden structures that readily succumbed to total destruction with napalm and fire. Here’s one of many reports.

I don’t think using the Japanese people in those two towns as singular makes what happened the truth. My guess is this was a false flag that allowed the US to save face in the surrender conditions (Russia was on the march) which has served many nuclear state’s geopolitics right up to the present.

I’m old enough to remember “milk bottles”. You bought milk in them, delivered to your door and when you’d finished with them they were collected, washed and reused. The rot really set in with fizzy drink bottles, advertised as “no deposit, no return”.

Like a lot of modern things trying to kludge solutions to problems we created ourselves just makes the problems worse. The problem, like the solution, is obvious but as everyone’s been indoctrinated with There Is No Alternative since birth solutions are lacking. (Its like computers — you build computer software missing some key concepts (because its cheap ‘n easy) and then you keep adding more and more complexity on top of the flawed foundation to make up for the initial deficiencies…..building up an entire cult in the process until the belief becomes more important than the thing that you were believing in.)

My father was a “milk man”. Always was gone by 4:00 AM and home by 2:00PM before leaving for his second job. I can only imagine how many brothers and sisters are out there that I never met. The blond hair and fair skin must have stood out from the red haired freckled Irish kids in the families on his milk route.

The glass gallon jugs were the best. They had a handle. Great for collecting “stuff”. They had a 15 cent deposit. Two discarded jugs would buy a paper kite (15 cents), a ball of string (10 cents) and candy bar (5 cents) to eat on the way to the park to fly the kite.

A local dairy had been producing “old time milk” in returnable bottles up until the scamdemic. Now they are gone too. It was pricey with a 2 buck deposit on the bottles. Well worth it.
