News headlines I could happily have done without reading.

.

It’s been a shitshow of a year hasn’t it?

While I normally roll with the punches, I have to admit sitting here on the last day of 2021 has got me a trifle depressed. Our lives have been put on hold for too long and I’m more than ready to disconnect the pause button.

With that in mind, reading the news probably wasn’t the best idea… but what the hell. How much worse could it be?

*Note to self – don’t ever ask that question*

Of course it will. I would expect nothing less.

I’ve never been on a cruise, and to be honest that type of vacation never interested me. ‘Floating petri dish’ has done nothing to change my mind.

Apparently NASA is going to rent space stations from private companies in the future. I don’t even want to know how many billions of dollars will literally go up in smoke when the current station goes poof.

Is that what I look like in my skinny jeans?

Now I really am depressed.

  1. The ISS think was planned all along. It’s finally reached the point where repairs cost too much. It’s already been in use for 2x longer than planned (30yrs; plan was for 15yrs).

    I hope 2022 brings you happiness!!

      1. It has gotten to the point they need huge programs to avoid all the garbage in space from knocking out every new venture into space.
        Maybe it is a good way to defenddefendourselves from aluen invaders, they won’t be able to find their way through all the dangerous debris.
        IF THERE ARE ALIEN INVADERS, which I highly doubt.

  2. If nothing else, the past few years have taught me that “new media” will invent any headline they can to attract attention, because eyeballs equals money. In a similar vein, some news networks have re-learned the lessons the various churches learned a long time ago – that fear, uncertainty and doubt are powerful levers – especially when weaponised against the insular, less well educated, or wilfully ignorant.
