Tyrannical Emperor Vlad, the face under the hood, destroyer of stars, who would subjugate the people throughout the galaxy.
Not such a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...
a solitary and fragile world was being torn apart by a tyranny never before seen in the known universe. The Dark Side of the Force was strong in many of the planets' leaders as they considered how they might destroy Planet Sea and its long-suffering people…
The Great Pretender,
Count Dooku Modi,
who would stand at the right hand of Emperor Vlad, replacing his long fought rival, Darth Xi
Jabba the Trump -
whose accelerating metamorphosis is due to his addiction to the mysterious spice known as Hydroxychloroquine.
Darth Xi, the 'Smiler' with the knife beneath the cloak. He is strong with the Force.
The storm clouds of war are building over Planet Sea and there is but a small band of warriors who would oppose the dark forces of evil, led by Princess Leia Merkel.
Master Jedi Yoda Fauci and Jedi Gates Skywalker use the Force for good...
...and in the background,
the spirit of the oldest Jedi Master of them all, Obiwan Charles Kenobi looks on.
We need to keep a close
eye on our beautiful
planet before one or
more of these maniacs goes and melts it!
Sorry to go on so, but really, what is happening everywhere? Of all times, when we should be pulling together and helping each other to cope and manage with the Coronavirus, our illustrious leaders seem bent on mutually assured destruction by lemming syndrome! The only country that seems to be on top of things is New Zealand, and understandably, they're not letting any of the rest of us near there.
These three are really scrapping for a fight. Modi is determined to have a war with Pakistan and provoke a conflict that could easily become nuclear. In the meantime, he contents himself with beating up Muslims in Kashmir and at home in India and engaging in fisty-cuffs and clubs (literally) on his border with China. Xi Jinping is set on territorial expansion, global economic domination and the destruction of the oceans while he does it. He also has it in for home-grown Muslims. Finally, Putin, puppet master par excellence, wants to let everyone think he's going to move against the Baltic States, while all along he wants his old Soviet satellite countries back, extended influence in the Balkans and the Middle East and last, but not least, dominion over the USA - and he doesn't like Muslims either.
And then there's the so-called leader of the free world, he who proudly and personally embraces the seven deadly sins and who doesn't seem to like anybody...seems he has time to write another book though; staggering while still in office.
Mark my words, there will be bloody noses a-plenty before too long. Consider the impact, for example, if all Islamic nations came together; Indonesia, Malaysia, the countries of the Middle East, Asia and North Africa. Having had a bellyful of being kicked around, subjugated, bullied and belittled. They decide they've had enough of it and will no longer tolerate the nonsense that has been meted out to them over the decades, indeed centuries. Their time will come, and probably much sooner than anyone might expect.
OK, enough said, GRUMP over and I better come up with some laughs before you all switch off...
Here is an example of multi-tasking, and just in case you thought it was only the girls who were good at this, think again.
Now we've got that sorted, let us once again consider the issue of
FACEMASKS & TESTING
Everyone in the Universe knows that you should always wear a mask...as they say, "In space, no-one can hear you cough!"
You know it must be true when one the greatest leaders in the world today (his words) is at last now calling upon his people to cover up...
But some still refuse to wear one because they think it might make them look stupid! What can one say...?
But tests are tests, whatever they reveal (thanks Dubes for your openness and for sharing...well, you know what I mean)
It seems Darwin was right, as if that were ever in question.
Go back. Seems we got
But the examples below do make you wonder!
Some argue that face marks don't always work. Well I say, neither do parachutes, but if I ever have to jump out of a crashing plane, I still want one.
And here's what one Italian magazine predicted in 1962 how the world would look sixty years later.
I suppose they didn't factor in the many different uses a Porsche could be put to! (I'm sure you'll let me know if it's NOT a Porsche)
Let us now consider the tricky matter of
