    As an example I'll claim you most certainly have put something illegal in your body , many times, as a brit I'm certain you have at the least tried it , you should know that items such as vegemite , marmite or cenovis , amongst a few most popular ones have been illegal in certain countries , such as the US. See the dilemma of the word " illegal " ?

    I have always assumed what is legaly for sale in my local supermarket,would not be breaking any UK law ,

    so Veggiemite is ileagal in the USA
    so is pork in Isreal ,alcahol in Muslim states
    there is no "dilema in the word ileagal , only in where you reside ,
    indeed Goverments set the standard ,
    with medical opion taken , it may not be a perfect system but it protects those that can't think for themselfe,

    Thanks Tdawnaz , no I don't own a TV , Just had the licence enforcers around again ( every 2 Years )
    Pleasent enough guys , and the search gets less each time they visit , they get my standard hospitality , ( cup of tea and a sandwich ,) but they always decline,
    ,
    High on Music , thats my normal state ,
    in the past I have been addicted to
    cigeretts , whisky and wild wild women , so far with Tdawnaz's help I have given up the cigeretts,
    the other 2 remaing I am thinking about ,maybe next year ,

    Predictions ? , I could write a page or 2 , but I predict folk will find it boring,

    basicly the world is in ressesion the rich will make more money , the poor will get poorer, there will be social unrest , the countries leaders will get the blame, the real danger is a new leader will arise ,
    who promises everything to everyone , ( Germany 1930 on ), then fear will become a reality,

    Barak Obama and David Cameron are shown a time
    machine which can see 100 years into the future.

    They both decide to test it by asking a question each.

    Barak goes first.

    “What will the USA be like in 100 years time?”

    The machine whirs and beeps and goes into action and
    gives him a printout, he reads it out "The country is in
    good hands under the new president, crime is non-existent, there is no conflict, the economy is healthy.

    There are no worries”

    David thinks “It's not bad this time machine, I'll have a bit of that” so he asks:

    “What will Great Britain be like in 100 years time?”

    The machine whirs and beeps and goes into action,
    and he gets a printout.
    But he just stares at it.

    “Come on Dave” says Barak, “What does it say”

    Dave replies,

    “Buggered if I know!

    It's all in Arabic!”

    So biggles ( Jersey guy hey ? Well doesn't that explain a lot , J/k ) we might essentially be thinking the same thing.

    People are seeing the upset of balance ( if there ever was a balance ) in the world. So many people are now seeing ( with the advent of social networking ) that there is a fundamental disorder to the hierarchy of power in the world. As money has taken over Vs. creativity and working together as a whole to better the human race.

    Political jargon is rapid , people are forced to believe , live , and respond / react to what they hear , believing it to be true simply because they hear it so much. This is nothing more then a trick of media. An outlet for those that cannot get attention by doing good , so they need others to create false power for them.

    Just as other " bubbles " have been created in the past , for specific purposes, some have seen the possibility of exploiting surges such as the dot com mess, housing mess, gold mess, strictly to uplift the specified for various reasons , generally monetary, to bring it down , just as a water well pump . Only when this is done , your bleeding finances as well as human drive to make something more of ones self. All of this is comparable to leading cattle into the slaughter house. Over time and generations , people become accustomed , the general consensus changes to adapt, as humans do so well.

    Combined with religious fanatics , human rights , labor relations , natural need to survive , celestial theology , history, political thunder from the slight conversation to the implanted lies that spew from the newly created animal of social engineered mass manipulation.

    Tear them down , force them to beg for help , then rush in and behold , the savior. ( or so thought ) History repeats itself time and again, as I said , I believe it's close to the apex again , only this time , it will not be contained by razor wire in a cold dormitory , but controlled by the people themselves , and the false prophetic power they give to themselves in the fact so many have literally lost the ability to think on there own.

    The same research did ot require space travel. The same could be said if we did more ocean travel. And most research is actually because people are never satisfied long with new inventions. On to the next version or item usually. I personally never cared if there was water or not on Mars. I don't plan on traveling that far for a bath.

    IMO let them have it. We lost trillions of dollars on it and what did we get from it? Useless knowledge really. I'd rather it was spent on ocean exploringinstead. I believe most of the cures needed today are under the water. A lot better and cheaper than moon rocks. Ok, other than satelites.
