“Truth is not truth.” Oh no. The leader’s lawyer said so. It’s not a lie. It’s
an alternative fact. Democracy cracked by the Kremlin. Divisiveness backed. Rich
powerful populists keep their tax avoidance intact.

There’s deceit on an outrageous scale when herds believe the Daily Mail. While Putin’s
pawns pull Facebook strings the fat lady sings.
Evolution denied by ignorance and pride. “We’re not apes! Proof provided by books
of old.” Tribal truths out-doled.
Blind faith blindfold. Do as you’re foretold. Superstition tradition - countless conned
The apple could float up. Instead the apple drops
on Newton’s head. The gravity of this injury he did not foresee.
Conspiracy crowd ludicrous & loud. Wacky vaccine-opposed parents risk their small children’s
lives. Some call fake the Moon landings. Flat Earthers all around the globe fall. Turtles
& more turtles all the way down. Tall total.
 It is alleged that agents of Putin’s Russia meddled with and influenced the results
of many western elections & referenda.including via social media.
 Wealthy financiers of the pro-Brexit campaign in the UK are said to have been
motivated by impending EU legislation to reduce tax avoidance loopholes.
 Described as ‘The Daily Hate’ by one of its own former editors, the Daily Mail’s
headlines of ‘outrage’ are more usually instructions to its readers than news reports.
Mixing real stories with pure politically-driven fiction, it conflates ‘refugees
& asylum seekers’ with ‘economic migrants’, ‘benefits tourists’ for its blanket xenophobic
 The full joke (which I couldn’t find a way to compress adequately) is “The Flat
Earthers Society claims to have members from all around the globe.”
Assert smug superiority - a primal primate primacy while posturing like a chimpanzee claiming
Quantum physics or mathematricks? Arbitrarily in one equation deem one place shift
downstream for infinity - a Ponzi-like pyramid scheme. Perceptual errors both are &
are not what they seem.
The cat’s alive. The cat is dead. The cat scratches Schrödinger’s head. The cat
puts on the emperor’s new coat. It’s an escaped goat!
 Religious fanatics in places such as the USA have tried to prevent the teaching
of evolution (despite the huge body of evidence for it) in schools. It has been
banned in Turkey. They even deny that humans are apes.
 I hate quantum physics &, in defiance of ‘science’, think it’s bullshit. There
is a supposed proof that the sum of increasing integers (1+2+3+4+5 etc) actually
results in a negative fraction which involves a shift in one of a pair of equations
(as referred to here).
 Schrödinger was dismissive of quantum physics’ claims that 2 contradictory states
can both be true at the same time (e.g. that a cat unseen in a box could simultaneously
be both alive and dead). Supposedly his perspective has been proven incorrect. However
I’m with Schrödinger on this one. Perhaps I’m not adequately knowledgeable and just
don’t understand but I like to think I’m pointing out the insubstantiality of the
quantum physics emperor’s new coat.
 Many people mistakenly mispronounce the word ‘scapegoat’ as ‘escaped goat’.
I thought I’d just throw this in here. Also it rhymes with ‘coat’.
