Benjamin Visits Broken U.K. Towns

Britain; the world's sixth biggest economy. But what is life like for the average Brit outside of the capital city? Well, I went to investigate and what I found wasn't too promising. Join me on a journey into the provinces of this once great country for what might be my most brutal adventure yet...

My short take
This is what happens when the wealthy eliminate the middle class. A problem throughout the world in my opinion. Including some parts right here in the United States.

This is a result of wealthy corporate interests shipping jobs to exploit poorer nation's workers. Here's a challenge. Take a look at the labels on every one of the products you buy. See where they are made. Most of my prescriptions,​ cat food and nearly every thing in my house was manufactured outside the United States. It's become nearly impossible to buy American no matter how hard you try. Good Luck!

Smartphones.. TOO SMART!

I do not own a smartphone and that's a big problem. Some insist I provide a mobile phone number or they won't allow me to conduct business with them on my PC. Such bull shit. I have no reason to pay $30+ a month just to satisfy them. I use a stand alone Garmin device plugged into my car lighter. More and more car parking is now going through 'apps' only. They won't accept cash nor credit cards. Cities are screwing themselves since I take all my business to where there is free parking and no huge parking fines. I have a PC and landline and that's it!

If you think smartphones are
for your convenience you're being played.

Are VPNs Just A Scam?

We gave all that up a long time ago. Some of us more then others by buying into these damn smartphones.

HUMOR: Annual Dementia Test (Repost)

It's that time of year to take our annual test.

Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it's important to keep mentally alert.

If you don't use it, you lose it!

Below is a very private way to gauge your loss or non-loss of intelligence.

Take the test presented here to determine if you're losing it or not. The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you've made your answer.

OK, relax, clear your mind and begin.

1. What do you put in a toaster?

Answer: "bread." If you said "toast," give up now and do something else.

Try not to hurt yourself.

2. Say "silk " five times. Now spell "silk." What do cows drink?

Answer: Cows drink water. If you said "milk," don't attempt the next question.

Your brain is over-stressed and may even overheat. Content yourself with reading a more appropriate literature such as UFO World.

However, if you said "water", proceed to question 3.

3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a green house made from?

Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said
"green bricks," why the hell are you still reading these???

4. It's twenty years ago, and a plane is flying at 20,000 feet over Germany (If you will recall, Germany at the time was politically divided into West Germany and East Germany.)

Anyway, during the flight, two engines fail. The pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is also failing, decides on a crash landing procedure.

Unfortunately the engine fails before he can do so and the plane fatally crashes smack in the middle of "no man's land" between East Germany and West Germany.

Where would you bury the survivors? East Germany, West Germany, or no man's land"?

Answer: You don't bury survivors.

If you said ANYTHING else, you're a dunce and you must stop.

If you said, "You don't bury survivors", proceed to the next question.

5. Without using a calculator - You are driving a bus from London to Milford Haven in Wales. In London, 17 people get on the bus. In Reading, six people get off the bus and nine people get on. In Swenson, two people get off and four get on. In Cardiff, 11 people get off and 16 people get on. In Swansea, three people get off and five people get on . In Carmarthen, six people get off and three get on. You then arrive at Milford Haven.

What was the name of the bus driver?

Answer: Oh, for crying out loud!

Don't you remember your own name?

It was YOU!!
