Once more we have a new “a study has found”.
On an apparently daily basis these utterly useless studies clutter up the newspapers with their breathless “you’ll never believe what we have discovered” type of banal shite.
The latest is a study into whether children hear voices.
God give me strength!
Some fucking idiot at some point sat down and actually decided this would be a valuable contribution to society?
I would love to know what he was smoking at the time.
I could do with some of that.
Could someone please tell me what scintilla of value this study could possibly add to the sum of all human knowledge?
Of course they are claiming that it could be an indicator of a future mental problem. So fucking what? All children these days suffer from one mental problem or other.
In my day, kids were generally one of four things. We were well behaved or we were bad. We were attentive of we were dreamers. Generally our parents wanted us to be good and attentive. Naturally we wanted to be dreamers and as bad as possible. I’m not telling which I was but I still carry quite a few scars from that era.
Nowadays, kids aren’t bad any more. Instead they suffer from some fucking syndrome or other that has been invented so that the parents can disavow all responsibility. When little Johnny sets the neighbour’s kittens alight, the parents shrug and say that it’s his Syndrome that caused that, and there is little they can do about it. Sad, innit?!
Why don’t these fucking twats go study something useful for a change? Why don’t they study the process by which a nice friendly reasonable man turns into a money grasping, power crazed little cunt as soon as he is elected to gubmint? Why don’t they study why my neighbour howls like a rabid dog every time there is a full moon? [On second thoughts, that might actually be his dog, so skip that]. Why don’t they do a study to find out why they are so fucking obsessed with studies?
Hearing fucking voices!
I used to hear voices when I was a kid.
It was usually my parents threatening me with something dire if I didn’t behave myself.
