Thursday Theories – Port Royal

If you don’t know what or where Port Royal is, it actually “shows” in this movie.

The reason I put “shows” in quotation marks? On 7 June 1692, just before noon (we know this because of a watch that was found) a earthquake and then a tsunami hit the port, sinking much of the city into the sea. When it happened the people at the time said that God was punishing what was then called “The Wickedest Place on Earth”.

What we know now.

With modern day technology they “flushed” out the ocean. Where they discovered *think* giant furrows, and there are long fracture lines directing from east to west. Which also means that there is a massive fault line, that run from North America and all the way to the Caribbean South Plates. So, when a earthquake hit Port Royal on the 7th of June in 1692. There were three pulses in Port Royal, and then all Hell broke loose.

First there was a earthquake,

Which then made the sand underneath turn into quicksand, (think the liquidation in Narkata Japan in 1960),

Then the earthquake made a tsunami.

So, not really “Gods” doing, but what a coincidence huh!. Even now, I can absolutely see why people would have seen this massive act of Mother Nature, would have seen it has a act of God’s Wrath!

Thursday Theories – Winston Churchill

Earlier this week, I wrote a really wee little bit about the myth of whether or not Winston Churchill actually knew about the Pearl Habor attack, BEFORE, it happened.

One of the enduring myths about Signals Intelligence in the Second World War is that Britain’s Prime Minister Winston Churchill knew from intercepted messages that the Japanese were going to attack Pearl Harbor in December 1941 but kept the fact secret to bring the USA into the war on the Allied side.

GCHQ

In this article, it says that it’s false based on the fact that the simultaneous Japanese attacks on Hong Kong, Malaya, the Dutch East Indies and Pearl Harbor were carried out in radio silence: there were no transmissions for Bletchley Park to intercept. But there would be radio silence, wouldn’t there? If you were trying to get someone to join, especially under War circumstances. Knowing that if that group of people joined, it would help immensely. Isn’t the point to NOT intercept? We’re talking about War here, and the allies were losing. Yes, that’s a terrible thought, that they wouldn’t send help.

It also says in the article that they assumed, because the report was vague. They assumed that the Japanese would invade Thailand…Why would you assume during War times about anything? There was a lot of assumptions being made.

The major reason why a lot of people think that Winston would have told Roosevelt, was because “Well of course he would”. I have theory though based on that Churchill was not a nice guy. Not really. Knowing what I know about the man. If he had warned Roosevelt, then Roosevelt would have been prepared and then the Japanese would have backed off. America more than likely still wouldn’t have joined in. Why would they send off people to War, when they are perfectly well setup and safe.

The problem I’ve been finding that a lot of the sites, especially those dedicated to Churchill, are very, well he couldn’t have done it, because it wouldn’t have been the proper thing to do. Even pages that show there was evidence of a potential attack on Pearl Harbor, but they would have been to busy to read them.

Well, here is the evidence: The 2413 pre-Pearl Harbor intercepts had been decrypted by Navy cryptologists after the war while they were waiting to be mustered out of the service. While Parker makes a strong circumstantial case that the attack would have been discovered had these messages been read, cryptologists at that time would not have been looking just at the 2413 intercepts; they would have been looking at all 26,581. Would they have been able to discern the relevant information from all that noise?

So basically, there was evidence of it, but there were too many other messages.

That’s surely not good enough?

Thursday Theories – TERFs and their VERY low standards

*VERY long post incoming*

So I am sure by now you have heard of the Women’s March and the vigil’s for Sarah Everard.

WELL…Again TERFs and Gender Criticals are making it all about them…AGAIN. I actually couldn’t believe that I had to argue with a group of grown ups. Who complained that because of a sign saying that TERFS were not welcomed, they left! They were scared off by ONE sign. They couldn’t put the prejudices aside for the violent way a young woman died, at the hands of the police, because of a sign. Not only did they leave because of the sign, but the way they BRAGGED about it too! Like, they were proud that they were scared of by ONE sign.

Then “Reclaim the Streets” was “rude” to a TERF, as they were demanding to know that RTS weren’t giving their money to men ie transwomen, and two weeks later they’re STILL going on about how “rude” they are. Not one person complaining has Sarah Everard mentioned anywhere on their profile.

Watching two women being called “brave” because they’re talking together on Spotify, about how much they hate trans people and they’re just protecting the “rights” of children, by not speaking to a single person who is trans, or even a actual health professional. Is a REALLY low standard to have when it comes to “bravery”. I wonder if they would call two men talking about women to “protect their rights” with no women or a single health professional for women there “brave”. Nope. So what’s the difference? Where, in their world is talking about people who are not even there “brave” in their world? I reported that podcast. Whether or not anything will happen, I don’t know.

Imagine having a go at a small company, because they post a picture of a diary with drawn bums and different underwear on those bums. Calling it not feminist, when it actually subtly is. Then calling me pathetic, when I make a joke about how they’re just jelly they’re bum doesn’t look as good, lol. Then of course they started with the whole misogyny thing, when I pointed out they’re getting upset over a pencil drawing of bums with underwear, and calling me pathetic for a joke. They seem upset. Then they said I was going on about it, as I had to point out. They were the ones who chose to bring it to everyone’s attention. You’re calling a joke pathetic. And when I say to actually LOOK at the drawing, instead of reacting, LOOK AT IT. I’m a misogynists’ -.- They blocked me, lol.

You know it’s just a funny thing to me, that these “women” compare themselves to the same struggles that suffragettes and “witches” faced. So much not are TERFs nearly ANYWHERE near that level that “witches” and suffragettes faced. Even the racists suffragettes.

Now, I come to the Queen of the TERFs. I don’t know how much of you have seen her tweets. That are completely transphobic, but I’ve only just begun to realise how they show how little of a self esteem Rowling has to has. Not only are her tweets and “report” transphobic. There’s one sentence in one tweet, that should be a clue to everyone how she actually views women and herself.

“Dress how you want….Have sex with whoever will have you”

Do NOT HAVE SEX WITH WHO’LL EVER HAVE YOU. How much more lower standards can you get than that? I can’t begin to tell you, how much not to do this. The only person who wins out of that is person who you had sex with. YOU WILL HATE YOURSELF. Which might explain as well quiet a few things about Rowling herself.

HAVE SOME STANDARDS WOMAN! For women and men EVERYWHERE…Have some set standards for yourself and stick to it. Also though having standards for yourself, will also help to stop yourself … I don’t know … If you want to fight for women and girls, if you want to really help us. You wont be scared off by a sign. You wouldn’t tell women to sleep with whoever. You wouldn’t block women asking how the money you’re grabbing from women during a global pandemic is for “sex based rights” when you’re court case is because someone said something “mean” about you.

Okay, I guess this isn’t really a “theory” so much as a fact. I’m “starting” to suspect that these women don’t actually care about women, and just want to hate trans women more.

Why I hate TERFs & GCs. I’m a cis white straight woman. Comes with a LOT of privilege even though I’ve been the victim of violence. TERFs are so engrossed in their HATRED of trans people, who’ve never harmed them. They IGNORE the voices of Brittany Higgins, Patsy Stevenson, Who ARE out there, right now. Trying to stop violence against women, and not on Twitter complaining how “gross” the trans community is. They disrespect the deaths of #DanaMartin #NaomiHersi #MheldoyBruno #stopviolenceagainstwomen

Interesting little tidbit. Since I’ve been a trans ally on Twitter, I have been more abused by women and men, more than I have in the entirety of my life.

Witch Appriopration

If you are a grand daughter of a Witch they couldn’t burn. They might be because your Great Gran mama was on the outside yelling …

Mainly because, one, if you do survive being burnt alive (which I doubt many, if any did). You certainly couldn’t give birth AFTER that. I don’t think we can even do that these days. Okay, I am wrong with this, at least ONE woman has given birth after she badly burned, Turia Pitt. But that’s NOW.

Also, women and men weren’t burned at the stake during the Salem Trials, they were hanged. 19 girls and one “warlock” Giles Corey was pressed to death with stones. The myth of burnings at the stake in Salem is most likely inspired by European witch trials. Either way. Not a single Witch or Warlock, who was actually burned at the stake, survived.

Either way your Great Gran mama was probably a bad witch. What kind of good witch, stands by and let’s her fellow magic comrades burn, or hang? Why wouldn’t you do anything? I can’t imagine that a good witch would hear of these things and just let it continue, letting it peak between the 15th and 18th centuries, that nearly (and probably over) 3 centuries!

NOW, if you said that you were the great grand daughter of a witch that was burned, hanged or executed. THAT makes sense. There was a rumour, that while a woman was being burned at the stake, she gave birth, but the executioner threw the baby back onto the fire pile. I don’t know much of that is true. Girls, gave birth very early back then. So there is a good chance, that some of the girls, cause a lot were young girls, already had had children. Possibly.

This is one of my “Conspiracy Theories”. I do think that Epstein just committed suicide. I don’t think he was murdered or killed, I think he just committed suicide.

My basis for this?

After watching the police just let those Trump Supporters, just let them walk in. Watching the police react to peaceful BLM protestors. Believing as well, that Barr probably and more than likely told Epstein “Look, we can’t protect you”.

I don’t think for a single second that that Guards “guarding” Epstein cared enough to actually stop Epstein. I don’t think they were ever going to stop Epstein from ending his life. Nothing to do with him being clearly a sex trafficker, I just don’t think they cared enough about Epstein’s victims to stop him. I don’t think anyone who likes Trump, who supports Trump, anyone who doesn’t want Trump exposed. Would do anything to protect Justice.

Rhetorical Questions, but feel free to answer if you’d like:

Why is it called “beauty sleep” when one wakes up looking like a troll??

If anyone is like me, the reason it’s called a “Beauty Sleep” is because of Sleeping Beauty. Sometimes when you sleep, it can feel like you’ve slept for an age. That’s just my theory anyway.

Why do they sterilize needles for lethal injections?

I guess it’s just a standard? Here in Australia, even though we don’t have lethal injections anymore. I would guess that they would still need to be sterilised, as some sort of standard practice. If who ever encounters the needle gets stabbed themselves, for whatever reason. Then they wont be infected either. There’s a lot of clumsy people out there. I managed to get a paper bag cut while food shopping the other day.

Why do most cars have speedometers that go up to at least 130 when you legally can’t go that fast on any road?

That one I have absolutely no idea. I actually talked about this a few weeks ago with my partner. He said he doesn’t really understand either. There comes a speed when you can’t even control the car after a certain speed…So who knows.

Did they purposely make dyslexia hard to spell?

Yes!lol…I actually suffer from dyslexia myself and it took me a while to remember how to spell it properly. I always feel stupid if I get the letters mixed up.

(Rather naughty):  If quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?

Test…ical =D lol


Odd but a bit philosophical or personal:

What are some things that are okay to do occasionally but definitely not okay to do every day?

Eat a whole pack of nacho Doritos…I’d like to be able too…But, probably, not the best idea for me.

What is the most embarrassing thing you have ever worn?

I actually wrote about this a few weeks ago. I was helping my Pa build a bit of a dingy years and year ago. I wore these legging that were really baggy, like really badly baggy. But I wasn’t wearing them to make a fashion statement. However my brother and cousin are really into Fashion and would not stop paying me out.

In your opinion, what’s the best type of cheese?

Jarlsberg Cheese…It is so freaking good! I feel like drooling just thinking about it.

What are some fun ways to answer everyday questions like “how’s it going” or “what do you do”?

I honestly have no idea.


Miscellaneous:

Have you ever sent a text message to the wrong person?   Details please.

I have actually, but it really wasn’t that serious, which was lucky! … Or not depending on you look at the situation. I have accidentally sent a text to my Dad that was meant for my partner. Which could have been truly horrifying! As you can imagine! Luckily all I was texting my partner about was dinner that night. I say, not so lucky, because then I ended up having to talk to my Dad. Talking to my Dad is always a chore, he sort of expects you to talk to him. So he’ll send a text that usually wouldn’t require a response, but he expects one.

If you could make a rule for a day, and everyone had to follow it, what would it be?

Before you post or reply to something online, you have to wait at least 5 minutes AND do some actual research before you post. No posting a picture with words on it, ie, memes. You HAVE to be able to back it up with some actual facts.

You are about to get in a fight, what song comes on your mind soundtrack?

There are so many and it depends who you are fighting and why you are fighting, or am I thinking about this too much?lol

Ex-friends – Kill them with kindness – Selena Gomez…Namaste…lol

General person on the street – Eye of the Tiger – Survivor…Well I assume this one, this has never actually happened to me,lol…I have never gotten into a fight with some randomly on the street.

If it’s my Mum – Mama – Spice Girls…lol

Clicks 3 – “Patriot”

It freaking clicked!

Why Trump supporters just cannot admit the fact that Trump has been a racist and IS still a racist.

Using Kanye a POC doesn’t mean he is not a racist.

However I digress!

I have gotten into many, many arguments with Trump supporters who REFUSE to acknowledge the fact that Trump has done racist things. From the 80’s right up until today. Every time I have shown them proof, not only do some just not read it. Some keep claiming that they’ve all been debunked, Which they haven’t.

However, it just “clicked” in my head one day. This is my “theory” on the matter…Views are entirely my own!

I think it’s because they’re SO racist themselves. If they have to acknowledge that POC are fellow Americans too. Then they wouldn’t be able to call themselves patriotic because they are allowing fellow Americans to be attacked. Then they wouldn’t be able to ignore their plight anymore.

GoT conspiracy theories!

I love a good conspiracy theory and with the popularity of Games of Thrones, there have definitely been quite a few going around! I think that I have loved every single one of them. One of the most recent ones I have read and am interested to find out what you all think about, is the Wall of the Nights Watch, it’s also a theory I’ve heard little about.

Games of Thrones: how the Wall was built, and it could be destroyed. Telegraph article online (journalist: Rebecca Hawkes)

I mean that wall is 700 feet tall and apparently over 300 miles long. Something like that doesn’t happen, without at least a little magic?!

It’s funny because I started to write this BEFORE I saw the last episode and know we now how they take down a wall like that…But let’s be honest…If they hadn’t of done it that way, how else would they have been able to do it? I was honestly hoping for more…It seemed too easy! Although I have seen some people say that it didn’t really happen and it was Bran seeing the possible future?!

I love a good conspiracy theory!

Have you got any? I would LOVE to hear them!
