Rumours & Gullibility

29 Jan

It’s a new year…. 

So I thought I should write something here.  It’s been a bust 1st month of 2011 at work. Getting a lot of new accounts and having to do LOT’S of design work for it.  But all good in the hood…

So as usual when I decide on a whim to update my blog, I find a million other things to distract me…. it’s taken me 30 mins just to write this sentence! :/

We had a scare this week with Mandela’s health, and rumours flying around like mad that he had died… It was mostly irritating…
If you don’t know for certain don’t say anything. And people are so, so gullible these days, so they just pass it along.

I see it on Facebook on a daily basis…. “I got a free iphone just by clicking on this link…”  “This girl commited suicide….” BLAH! really??? Are you seriously that gullible? Anyway… Like my mother always used to say, “It takes all kinds to make the world’ hehehe….

I made some progress on finding my friend Marcel Campell but more on that in another post.

Over and Out for now….

What if….

you didn’t get to pick the race of your child…. that nothing about procreation was genetic… but rather, chance…

You don’t get to pick….

Do you think Racism would still exist??

Imagine Julius Malema and Eugene Terre’Blanche at the birth of one of their kids….

Smart ID Cards (Smart being the operative word??)

15 Apr

The smart ID card, which will encode personal and biometric information on a credit-card-sized identity document, is to be revived next year…

When they introduce the smart card They want to capture our information on-line and not on paper.

Malusi Gigaba, said that the government printing works (GPW) is being readied to mass-produce the cards.

YET….

The Government Printing Works (GPW) said earlier in March that they will cease printing passports if it does not receive the R126m it is owed by the department of home affairs. (from June 2009)

Interesting…..

Why did they not pay the GPW? it’s not like they have a lot of staff who’s salary’s need to be paid?

The National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa) caught Eskom out, as it were, in several instances where the utility unnecessarily exaggerated costs in its application for a 35% tariff hike.
