Deus Ex Human Revolution
4 March , 2011
I thought I had best start with our current position in the world. What have we already achieved? I started with a few keyword rich searches in Bing (Ooo, not Google… how controversial). The former are not so interesting, yet they start the thinking process:
A few more search results return some more interesting break throughs:
- Prosthetic limbs
- Electronic eye (yes, that’s right, electronic eye!)
- Bio augmentations (mouse with ear on back)
Deus Ex – Human Revolution
Human Revolution – the prequel to Deus Ex has complex mechanical tools/weapons augmented into a human body. Deus Ex has nano augmentation (Just like a big computer packed into a laptop and a laptop packed into a mobile). All these augmentations have connections to each other because they are connected like us to an internet; a data highway if you will. Big Brother?
So why not?
If we already have chemical releasing implants, pacemakers to keep our own hearts continuing even though they are supposedly non-functional, electronic hands that can interface with our muscles and allow amputees to get their independance back and electronic eyes that make some blind people have some visibility again… why not?
Imagine in 10 years time, people are optionally having phones augmented into their body. Think about answering the call and the call inside your head picks up. Use mind control to talk to each other similar to using direct neural interfacing to control objects on a screen like this. Look at a random passer by on the street and, through the internet, face recognition or some identification calls a database and recieves information about that person. Imagine how easy policing would be?
Let’s think harder. Imagine people are forced to have an augmentation that stores up to date readings of alcohol and drug levels or illnesses people have. A database of everyones conditions, thoughts, movements that can be accessed with a search tool like Google. It doesn’t seem complex to me… and it’s a fucking scary thought. I for one wouldn’t let someone implant that kind of shit into me, so there will be politics. Politics will fail, so there will be fights. Fights lead to wars and terrorism. People will be searching for groups and others who have managed to not get implanted. The police, the army, the World are looking for you and your group…
Not so surprising then that Deus Ex – Human Revolution could be real within the next 100 years. I only wish I could be alive to see it happen.
Please leave comments, I’m revved up for some deep discussion.

Sainsbury’s Coffee Explosion in Farnborough
19 September , 2010
I was on holiday in Gran Canaria for a week… I get one text during that whole time and it said “Interesting news, Coffee machine blew up”…
I mean, it’s kinda funny when your swimming in a pool in 37 degrees heat drinking cocktail after cocktail after beer after whatever that drink is after more and more alcohol… but damn is that freaking crazy. That poor women who got absolutely pwned, hope she does allright etc…
Want a coffee?… KABOOM!
Ok so here’s a quote from a proper long news article about what happened… Probably should click through and read up on this crazy shit.
Mail Online: “It went off like a bomb yesterday in Sainsbury’s, in Farnborough, Hampshire, blasting a hole in a wall and injuring 15 people.”
Enjoy your cup of coffee…

Chessington World of Adventures, Diabetics have to queue?
27 July , 2010
Here’s some news that will get your blood boiling and your sugar levels low.
I decided to go to Chessington World of Adventures to have a ruddy good time and as usual, I went directly to the medical hut to sort out my disability bands for my diabetes; they allow me to go to the front of queues due to the risk of getting low blood sugars whilst waiting.
I was greeted by a disabled man (not sure what he had) and I explained my situation of being diabetic, handed him a note from the doctor clearly stating that it is a risk for me to wait in the queues and listened intently to what he had to say:
CWA Staff: “Is that the only disability you have?”
ME: “erm, yes, it IS the disability I have”
CWA Staff: “Well we only hand out the bands to people who find it difficult to wait in queues”
I was stunned. I simply said ok and left the hut. The story doesn’t get much better than this. Luckily I went back in with some guts and explained:
ME: “How is this acceptable? I pay £36 to enter Chessington to have a good time, not to constantly worry about my blood sugars. When I wait in a queue, my blood sugar levels lower; especially in the sun. I get to the ride and ignore my symptoms because I am excited about getting on and then have a hypo whilst on it.”
CWA Staff: “Well we will give you the band this time, but next time you need to bring a letter stating it’s difficult for you to wait in a queue”
Well hangon… Didn’t I just tell you it’s difficult you fool, and read the damn letter too, it explains it.
So anyway, I got the band but what a total waste of my time.
I guess what I want to try and say is that Chessington World of Adventurers is way off the mark when it comes to defining what a disability is.
