Your target market is split in two: those that need the product, and those that want the product. Which one makes you more money?



Analyzing based on past time each category is again divided in minimum two, to simplify, those that can afford your price and those that cannot.

Let's start with a simple market that anybody understands today, software.  We all have it on the computer, on the tablet, on the phone, in the bathroom, in the kitchen, in the garden water hose.

When software first popped up the way we know it today, as OS, (not mere trials of some nuts that loved to play with), it was damn expensive, few rich companies could afford computers and software, and even fewer governments.

But people needed it, so we had the segment of those that needed it split in two, who could afford it and who could not.

Unix was as dear as the costs of a war between two nations, they run with him nuclear plants, and similar things of great magnitude, including government operations.

Dude, home needed one too, Dude was accountant but could not afford to spend the the national income of a small country for that.

Dude knew some Unix programmers because they were his clients and they kept telling him what a kaboom of steroids would mean to have a computer, so he bought one, but no OS...  that was wayyyyyyy toooo muuuuuch.

So his clients charged him peanuts and beer, and made a micro Unix like something to run his expensive and inert toy, to bring it to life.

So on the market popped up Linux, Sun Solaris, IBM, DOS, M.S. Dos, MacIntosh, CPM and a rainbow of others.

They made their programmer rich in the first run?  Nope, I mean wealthy yes, but rich Bill Gates style, nope.

How many of those names you still remember?

Maybe none, their target market were not the guys who wanted, but the guys who needed, like Dude above.

Than two guys had the same idea, what if we sold this to whom wants it, although not really needs it?  Yea, but how, I mean everything was on programming language, no Graphic Interface.  So they both created graphic interfaces, one named Apple, one named Windows, and both priced it low, damn low, less than 1% of what Dude paid his friends to get his pile of sand and metal come to life and producing money, and definitely less than Unix, maybe one fraction of a million of it's price.

Steve Jobs did a good quality job to keep his name's sake, and priced it accordingly, some 1 monthly salary of a coast to coast truck driver.

Bill Gates made a pale quality one, full of bugs and incertitudes, but priced it for one day of work of a coast to coast truck driver.

Everybody wanted them, guess whom got rich?  Did those people really needed them?  Nope, there were not even applications at the time, except e-mail, Microsoft Works (what an oxymoron) text processor and the like.

Internet browsers popped up far late in time, and changed the game for ever.


The computers revolution ladies and gentleman, disruptive technology, game changer (gamers included) the future... now obsolete.

Let's have a look into the same perspective at the 3D printing technology, dream of the humanity, the physical replicator of... anything, new shoes?  Print them in leather, New chairs?  Print them in oak, new car body?  Print it in carbon fiber, New car engine?  Print it in metals,   fresh stake to grill?  Print it in bio flesh materials, also print the grill in metal and some coals in carbon and hydrogen please.

Now available?  Not yet, maybe some on monomaterials like plastic or ABS filament, or cement, or metal shyntheriser or Stereo Lithography Tridimensional (I guess, damn those acronyms, what the heck means SLT anyway?) with UV curing in various waxes, plastics, silicones (not for breast implant I guess, buttocks implants maybe) and other materials.

I heard somebody is printing with meat cells living steaks, or human parts, a printed liver, fully operational for transplant please...

How much per machine to start with?  Millions when they came on the market.

Who bought them?  Just like with initial computers and OS platforms, General Motors, the Pentagon, DARPA and similar, for fast prototyping and design proofing.

Than somebody came up with the first open source Rep Rap printer, with plastic filament (fishing line to be more precise), somebody else with cheap SLT solutions, for now small machines, like a coffee maker size, can print a mug or half a shoe in plastic or ABS or similar.

For those that needed them, but could not afford, and cost wise... thousands of USD a piece (far cheaper than the big money counterpart, but still dear to the segment "want them"  not the "need them" one).

Than more feeble and slow machines were made, now a Reap Rap machine DIY can cost USD 200 or more, and a day of work to assemble it home from kit, and maybe a month to finally make it work in synchrony with your laptop.

Metal printers are still around 60K to 100K each, SLT from 3 K to 100 K each, but is a start, son the shit hits the fan and a machine as big as a fridge with multiple heads (metal, plastic and SLT) might come on the market big enough to print a chair or a small table or piece of furniture, or the fender of your car if you dented it.  Probably priced around 1 monthly salary of a coast to coast driver (say 3Gran).

And from than on the game changes for ever, again...

Choices of life



In everything you do
Exercise common sense
Especially when breaking the law
For the law is so immoral that
Leaves you no other choice but to
Stick to moral and common sense.

I decided to live my life As a form of protest Against human stupidity

Collection of thoughts of mine upon the human stupidity at it's best.

Legal hour now kicked in, but in 6 months the natural hour takes it's place back.
Conclusion: If it's legal than ain't natural, and if it's natural, than ain't legal.
I think it applies to all legal matters.

Nothing is easy unless you like what you are doing, not even thinking or taking a nap.  But mostly thinking the right thing and doing the right thing.

Imagine if you please a place in the universe where people believe that war is peace, destruction is profit, greed is good, drugs are health, debt brings wealth, taxation is progress, stupid is brilliant and ignorance is bliss.  It's name is "nobody cares", population seven billion. 

Driver school is no driver school, is handling a vehicle school, the license is not a driving license, just a license to kill.  Once passed the threshold of one hundred thousand kilometers it may become a driving license, maybe...

Smoking is good for the environment, since it kills the smokers...

Life can only be understood inwards, happiness is an inside job, same as freedom.  However that is illegal and however, nobody cares.

Dubito ergo cogito, cogito ergo sum, said the wise man.
Modern interpretations is: debito ergo sum.

The problem is not the small psychopathic minority that insults left and right, black, Asian, natives or white, the problem is us, the majority, we now fall for their game and feel insulted by anything, instead of diminishing their power upon us by simply ignoring them as you ignore a worm in the grass or a flee in the orchard, instead of burning down the orchard for that flee.

With friends like those I need no enemies. (Romanian proverb)

Not even the disinformation is what is used to be, dropped in quality lately.


we are the future, but future is not ours...

Health savings accounts??
"Giving the poor a health care savings account is like giving the starving a cookbook."
The idea is that if you do not strive to put some cash into health saving account, they cannot steal it later, and that is what they are looking for, everybody to have any money only in the accounts, cashless world, so if they want, they can in a blink erase your balance if you are inconveniently thinking or speaking.
Did you ever see "enemy of the state"?
What other incentive to have you do that they can come with better than your health worries?


War is about having what you did not created or inherited, without permission from who did so, against their will, by brute force and banditism.
Not competition is dangerous, but greed and stupidity, if we compete there will always be someone to create something better, find a better way to do things, experiment something new, so we have progress, but if we are greedy and instead of competing we lust for other peoples achievements and take them by force, yes we have war and corruption.
Greed is at the base of capitalism, communism, fascism, socialism and any other religion.

War is never about freedom, is always about bullying others into submission, is murder on large scale and theft, naturally on large scale.

Immagne that:
Trevor Said:
My sister in law was a civil servant ( in the MOD where the establishment is now greater than the total manpower of the Armed Forces, how is that for nonsense? )
She suffered from narcolepsy and by her own admission spent between onr third and half of each day propped up by her computer, asleep.
Yet despite this her annual assessments alway rated her as the most productive member of her team... Says it all.
The nation cannot afford a public sector of the current size. There are too few of us contributing to the nation's wealth and too many in the public sector. Until someone has the guts to sort this out our finances will always be in a mess.

Pop Emil most productive member... so what were the others doing?
 If you want to join the army you must be some criminal mind, otherwise I cannot explain people joining the army.


I have just invented new terminology:
Toxic A. I.
Chew that.

Does anybody know what day is the end of the world scheduled this year?

Turn the other cheek.

All preachers and most church attenders know and will point out to these verses

Matthew 5:39 and Luke 6:29


Where basically they state Jesus is teaching us not resist the persecution and the aggression of the wicked.

But the bible also tells us to preach the gospel all times, and according to Martin Luther, sometimes we should also use words.

There is one more thing the bible tells us and this is what the preachers tend to avoid mentioning:
-And He said to them, "When I sent you without money bag, knapsack, and sandals, did you lack anything?" So they said, "Nothing." Then He said to them, "But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one.  For I say to you that this which is written must still be accomplished in Me: 'And He was numbered with the transgressors.'  For the things concerning Me have an end."
in Luke 22:35 - 38-

The fact is those passages are on irreconcilable positions according to the preachers..., on the contrary, they state the same thing to me.  "Preach the gospel at all times" (and sometimes use the words too)

Now how is that working?

Some might argue that the sword is figurative, but I doubt so, I think is about a good Damascus steel sword we are talking about here.  The real deal.

I mean you had to sell a garment to buy it, not your socks, not the shirt, not the trousers, but the whole garment; overcoat included.
At the time that was some real money, Primark and Walmart were not selling yet single time use items for one dollar/pound/euro each, making a garment by hand from seeding, to harvesting to processing to making the fabric to tailoring and coloring... must of cost like a good car now days.  Sell your good car and buy a sword, that must of being a good sword.

Back to what we need to learn from all this:  preach the Gospel the way they shall never forget it, teach them a lesson they will remember for life.

In the first case, by turning the other cheek... in public (have you acknowledged in all cases this is preached it is not about things done in private, but in public?) to shun them for being abusive, to teach them such a harsh lesson of superiority, humbleness, might and strength that everybody around would remember that for ever; and the trespasser would not dare stick their heads out of their houses for shame unless they change in better and be re accepted by the community after a deep evidence of having learned their lesson once and for all.

O yes, the bible is meant to be read in it's literal and cultural context, anything else is out of place, which is the way they preach anyway, out of place.  Why so?  Simply so they can take advantage of you being humble and submissive to their abusive ways.

Following the juridical principle that the last law to be issued completes the previous ones, eliminates among the previous ones those that are in disagreement with the last one and takes over the legal issues as the only applicable law from that moment on, we must note that the "buy a sword" commandment arrived after the "turn the other cheek" on a chronological order.

And it is telling us that if in our appraisal of the situation, the "turn the other cheek" will have no positive effect, than pull out the sword and defend your rights, fight them to death, chain them and send them to jail, whatever, if they have a hard time behaving like they should, just kick their asses.

Of course there is another command coming latter in time, "love one another", but surprisingly that is not canceling the above two. 
What is that command doing is telling you not to be like those that you have to punish for being wicked, be it by shaming them publicly or if not efficient to do so, by fighting them with the sword or whatever you happen to have as weapon, legal documents, lawyers, courts, guns, as long as justice prevails.  Be a warrior and kick ass.

Be better.  As long as it works, and be stronger and more mean when needed, but without being wicked and evil yourself.

Bottom line, turn the other cheek it is only another weapon to publicly put to shame ad teach a hard lesson to the evil ones, use it when it works to kick their asses around, and if that would not do, remember that sword you bought and trained with?  Use it... with love.

The political sphere overview



I hate communism, fascism, democracy, capitalism, socialism, catholicism and Muslim, and any other religion that requires that I submit my rights to their guidance so I can be saved from ( each one comes up with something) in exchange of my taxes and absolute obedience to their (creed, political line, Imam, Pope, etc) as by them authorized.

I try to use my brain, and this labels me antipatic, inconvenient, recalcitrant, reactionary, anarchic, and so on, to make it brief, I am among those that seek the facts or the satire against "alternative facts", and throws them in the face of those that ignore and deny them by posting biased information in support of one of the line above mentioned or others not mentioned here, simply because this is how they make a living, or worse, because they got to believe such religious line is the absolute truth.

The official line is that the political spectrum is ... a line, democracy in the middle, the left, the right, the extreme left and the extreme right...  there is no room for other options, thus anarchy is  not even contemplated for instance.

In reality the politics is sphere (a... yes, they sometimes call themselves the political sphere, but you shouldn't know that) half sunk in shit, where at the top pole is the Anarchy, than below is the decayed from anarchy due to greed and stupidity, and that is democracy.

Than from the 45 degrees below we have a shady zone where half is socialism and half is capitalism, sort of democracy abortions towards decay. If you spin the sphere around an axis that passes from pole to pole, you can't really tell the difference between the two when it comes to common people's daily life.

Capitalism is decay, of democracy, as socialism is decay of democracy, fascism and communism is their extreme decay that closes the circle below equator line, thus fascism and Communism are the opposite side of the sphere from democracy and deep in violent shit.

At the equator of this sphere is where the deep shit starts.  And from there below we have Communism and Fascism.  Again if you spin the sphere around an axis that passes from pole to pole, you can't really tell the difference between the two when it comes to common people's daily life.  Same shit.

And below that, at the deep end pole, opposite to Anarchy, we have extremism, militarism, corporatism at it's best, is where people are numbers and can be scarified at will for the profit of the few, same goes for the nature, who cares if forests are vanishing and waters and poisoned, once money are made.

In the end is the same sphere, where anarchy is freedom to think, speak and act but without being an asshole, and from that point below, starting with democracy and down to extremism and violence, is but mere economics imposed upon social throughout politics and terror.

We are living cheap times when stupidity and insolence are the law and admired in awe, but wisdom is stepped upon and spat on the head, bought and sold on mere nothing or thrown away for nothing.

 It is a war stink around.

Deep thoughts are only coming to those that think, the others are just shitting in their brains in public.

I share ideas with the idealists
I share thoughts with the thoughtful
I explore profundities with the deep thinkers
I observe the Universes with the acute observers
I split the hair in 4, or 16 or 32 with the keen analysts

I dream beyond of what it can be seen
Alone.

United Mediocrity sticks together united as a wall against intelligent, the usual.




Don't be normal, mediocre is normal
Don't be the best, the best is in management
Don't be extraordinary, heroes are extraordinary
Be Superlative, Thinkers are superlative
They feed the to do to heroes, management and the masses
They are unknown, they hide, think and lead.
