Making sense of Jim Carrey

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 16:23:04 +0000

Jim Carrey has been receiving quite some attention in the press because of some “controversial” things he said recently in a few interviews. People are wondering whether Carrey is going through a depression or simply going crazy. In one interview with E! News, for example, Carrey mentions that this reality that we live in is “just clusters of tetrahedrons moving … Continue reading (image)

De rol van Nederland en kolonel Valk bij de coup van Bouterse in Suriname (1980)

Sun, 27 Aug 2017 12:23:32 +0000

Waren de “groep van 16” die op 25 februari 1980 via een coup de macht overnamen op de plantage Suriname helden, of slechts gemanipuleerde en misbruikte slaven, die de belangen dienden van de Nederlandse kolonialisten? Suriname werd zogenaamd “onafhankelijk” op 25 november 1975 — dat was alleen een sprookje voor de domme slavenmassa. Op de achtergrond gingen de eigenaren van … Continue reading (image)

Censorship on; Pay attention Bill Ottman

Thu, 10 Aug 2017 22:28:46 +0000

In June 2017 I learned about a new social media website called While criticizing other social networks for their role in censorship,’s co-founder and CEO Bill Ottman claimed that there would be no censorship on; in his words, “Minds is engineered for freedom of speech, transparency and privacy.” But my own recent experiences show that we can probably … Continue reading (image)

Court rules that Politicians blocking followers on Social Media violates Free Speech

Sun, 30 Jul 2017 21:12:50 +0000

Back in October 2016 I had blogged about my experiences with censorship on Facebook, where I mentioned that the reporting functionalities provided by the social media network were “being abused […] to harass, silence and censor people, and is a serious violation of every individual’s natural right to free speech.” Interestingly a judge in the USA seems to agree in at least … Continue reading (image)

Sexual Suppression and Repression I: Definition and Origin

Fri, 26 May 2017 21:17:02 +0000

The suppression and repression of our sexuality is one of the biggest problems humankind is currently suffering from. According to my research we’ve been dealing with this problem for many thousands of years now. The root cause of most of the problems — even the seemingly unrelated ones — that we’re dealing with in societies around the world can be traced back to sexual … Continue reading (image)

In an interview by David Icke a few years ago Credo Mutwa shared some very interesting ancient African knowledge that got passed on to him. Among other things, he tells the story about how men and women were divided, conquered and enslaved many thousands of years ago by technologically advanced extraterrestrial beings. You can watch part of the interview in … Continue reading (image)

Model Photo Shoot: Zurina Williams

Fri, 12 May 2017 13:04:53 +0000

A few weeks ago I did a photo shoot involving a very pretty young lady named Zurina Williams. This time the theme was ‘faux freckles’, meaning that freckles were drawn onto the face of the model by the makeup artist, in this case the talented Tanielle Seauw. We did two looks; the first one a ‘natural’ look and then after … Continue reading (image)

On the Facebook 30-Day Ban and Censorship

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 23:28:22 +0000

This week I got temporarily banned, again, for 30 days on Facebook after someone apparently reported a comment I had published below a friend’s post. Much has been said about this ‘feature’ on Facebook, but I have more to add to the ongoing discussion on the Internet. The product team and engineers at Facebook seriously need to look into this functionality … Continue reading (image)

Convincing C programmers to switch to C++; A look at human thinking behavior

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 23:33:53 +0000

A few days ago I watched a CppCon 2016 presentation by Dan Saks titled “extern c: Talking to C Programmers about C++” and was pleasantly surprised by the information and insights he shared. I wouldn’t have expected this kind of information to be shared at a C++ conference, let alone a talk about C and C++. Even if you’re not into software … Continue reading (image)

How not to raise your children

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 13:59:36 +0000

Is the prevailing reward and punishment style of raising children beneficial for them and for society in the long term? In a recent article by Larken Rose titled “Raising Human Livestock” he writes the following: If you happen to command your children to behave properly, after having used reward and punishment to train them to obey you, you still didn’t teach … Continue reading (image)

Thoughts on the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 17:00:20 +0000

Canon recently announced their new camera in the 5D line — the 5D Mark IV (5D4). My first reaction to the announcement, after having gone through the specs, was a facepalm. And I’m not the only one, as there’s a lot of disappointment to be found everywhere on the Internet, especially when it comes to the video features. I’m more of … Continue reading (image)

I’ve already written about some of them, and you can find them here on my blog tagged under “coincidences.” In this post I’m going to write about a number of them that have to do with numerology.
