Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

A man sees what he wants to see...

..and disregards the rest.

Paul Simon knew.

Today, reading the SMH, I came across the headline "Slice of silicon valley as social media moves in". I had not started reading the article when my gaze was snared by an insert positioned in the centre of the piece which said "Business Day: Fears of Geek debt default. Page 1."

Well, it actually said "Greek", but I didn't realise that for a few seconds...

The national debt of Greece is about A$500 billion and rising. So you'd need the equivalent of 10 Bill Gates in geeks to pay it off.

Finding that many multi-billionaire geeks would be a snap. Persuading them to bail out Greece would be impossible.

No geeks bearing gifts?

Apparently Steve Jobs offered a beautiful iHorse, but Greek Finance Minister Achilles Agamemnon spurned it for some unaccountable reason :-)
