emails to keep the snoopers busy? dunno – here’s why…

i originally copied this thinking iy would be a good game. it might be. it would involve snoopers monitoring emails etc for certain phrases and words. they might do.

this brings up a few thoughts – who would monitor these anyway? would it not have to be done by search type robot algorhithms? i expect so.

maybe more profound – would any potential terrorist, if there is such a thing, actually use email, web pages or other electronic unsecure froms of communication in this way?

they would have to be as daft as the people who monitor such things. 

who knows. i think we live in a world of pointless aggression and sabre rattling. so amny of us are hooked into these cat and mouse games, including me. 

its another distortion of a natural desire, like debt, shame, blame. the need for leaders and toxic relationships.

the need for power, knowledge – gaining the advantage. all those distractions that seem so important.

this is the original post. i wonder if its been clocked. not sure it matters any more.

now, lets say lots of naughty people , which we are most certainly not, decidedto bury the text below in say, white on white text in the footer or something, and send a mail to all the people they knew. maybe that mail could say”have you heard that there’s a joke goin about at the mo, that the gubberment are spying on us, and buried in this mail is a statement that would be flagged up by that. i have sent this to all the people in my contacts. if you like the joke maybe you would do the same, if you don’t like my joke please feel free to delete it. take care”that might be great fun and larks, and as its a joke and there’s no spies no one would get annoyed or antsy about it.

“That advice you gave me was the bomb! We had gangs of fun. The first movie was a riot; but Larry had some kind of toxic cloud of gas and I swear I needed a Hazmat suit. Anyway – we went to a Middle Eastern restaurant in San Diego and I couldn’t get a pork sandwich…because they don’t eat pork. But the waiter was like some kind of Al-Shabaab home grown terrorist that I just knew was hiding some kind of weapons cache in the other room so I wasn’t going to offend him.”

What goes in and out of Hydraulic Fracturing (fracking)

this website was taken off but this is a cached copy of it.

What goes in and out of

Hydraulic

Fracturing

Dive Down

So What is it?

Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”, is the process of drilling and injecting fluid into the ground at a high pressure in order to fracture shale rocks to release natural gas inside.

There are more than 500,000 active natural gas wells in the US.

To the site

Each gas well requires an average of 400 tanker trucks to carry water and supplies to and from the site.

Heavy Load

It takes 1-8 million gallons of water to complete each fracturing job.

Fracturing Site

The water brought in is mixed with sand and chemicals to create fracking fluid. Approximately 40,000 gallons of chemicals are used per fracturing.

Fracking Fluid

Up to 600 chemicals are used in fracking fluid, including known carcinogens and toxins such as…

lead

uranium

mercury

ethylene glycol

radium

methanol

hydrochloric acid

formaldehyde

Down 10,000ft

The fracking fluid is then pressure injected into the ground through a drilled pipeline.

The Math

500,000

X

72 trillion gallons of water 
and 
360 billion gallons of chemicals 
needed to run our current gas wells.

Shale Fracturing

The mixture reaches the end of the well where the high pressure causes the nearby shale rock to crack, creating fissures where natural gas flows into the well.

Gravity

Contamination

During this process, methane gas and toxic chemicals leach out from the system and contaminate nearby groundwater.

Methane concentrations are 17x higher in drinking-water wells near fracturing sites than in normal wells.

Drinking Water

Contaminated well water is used for drinking water for nearby cities and towns.

There have been over 1,000 documented cases of water contamination next to areas of gas drilling as well as cases of sensory, respiratory, and neurological damage due to ingested contaminated water.

To The City

Left Behind

Only 30-50% of the fracturing fluid is recovered, the rest of the toxic fluid is left in the ground and is not biodegradable.

The waste fluid is left in open air pits to evaporate, releasing harmful VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) into the atmosphere, creating contaminated air, acid rain, and ground level ozone.

In the end, hydraulic fracking produces approximately 300,000 barrels of natural gas a day, but at the price of numerous environmental, safety, and health hazards.

Don’t think it’s worth it?

Help support the FRAC Act (Fracturing Responsibility and Awareness of Chemicals Act) which would require the energy industry to disclose all chemicals used in fracturing fluid as well as repeal fracking’s exemption from the Safe Drinking Water Act.

Subject: despicable service with virgin media phone and internet connection – charges thereof.

 

Dear Sir

 

yet again i find myself having to consider no longer trading with your company.

after being assured a second time by one of you representatives that costs would be kept to a minimum, which i agreed to verbally, i have recieved another account which is impossible to pay.

i no longer respect the word of your company, having not honoured verbal agreements in the past.

if the situation is not resolved within seven days i will have no choice but to insist that all connections to my property are removed, equipment collected at your cost.

i will also be invoicing you for the sum of £500 for damages, my time spent trying to resolve this situation, misrepresentation and trading standards violations.

this invoice will be payable within 30 days and followed up with a claim in the courts.

these will also be followed up with a complaint to ofcom regarding what appears to be “saying one thing and doing another” , in other words falsehoods promises and hiking agreed prices.

the only communication will be in writing in future, and this will be used in any legal proceedings which i will be taking.

 

please feel assured that i am not threatened by large companies “charging what they like” and will exercise the full extent of my consumer rights.

i do not need to remind you that i have been a good and loyal customer with your company, and notified yourselves immediately of my change in circumstances, despite my chronic pain.

 

the lack of suitable service from your company followed by blatant disregard for agreements made with youir representatives on two separate occasions, followed by being either left on hold, or disconnected whilst having again to call 150 on tuImageesday evening by Anu Phenang, the supervisor at your call centre is entirely unacceptable.

this was after a further call from someone called Julie who informed me that “calls to mobiles” had been made on my line. i immediately reported this as tampreing or theft, which Julie informed me she “could not deal with and i need to call 150” – something i was not willing to do, due to the poor state of my health.

 

i am pursuing legal advice at the earliest opportunity, as due to the previous experience with your company illegally adding charges to my account which have not been agreed to, will i am sure become a legal matter very swiftly, and i am not prepared to be villified by yourselves, when i have made every reasonable effort to play fair.

 

i look forward to your response in writing within 7 days.

Paul Barnard

(after my original email below, i was phoned by someone from virgin customer care team, and after a long discussion i agreed to keep the service at a total cost of £23 per month, for as long as i could maintain it – with the agreement that if i had to then cancel due to cost, it would be ok, i e no cancellation charges – they know they can’t get blood out of a stone – or so i thought. then the bill arrived!

Subject: Fw: problems following the work capability assessment

 

Dear Mr Berkett

 

it is with the deepest sorrow that i must inform you of my current situation.

 

i orginally spoke to your customer services on 19th october, having been informed that i was to get no benefit following the above assessment, as many other hundreds of thousands of disabled have found. i had no choice but to immediately stop all my direct debits.

 

at the time i spoke to a lovely girl called Victoria, and i would like your assurance she will be commended for her genuine attempt to help out,

we decided that i would go to a phone/internet only deal for about £18 per month, and go to monthly bills, hoping for a result from applying for an appeal.

i then recieved on friday an email stating that i now owe a total of £83, obviously impossible for me to pay, even should some payment be offered by the DWP.

 

i queried this, and after an exhaustive hour long call on fridaty, it seems that i am being charged the full £35+ for two months plus a £10 late fee.

again at odds with the discussion on oct 19th.

 

i had intended to pursue this and make effort to maintain the deal of £18 per month if possible. the phone and internet are invaluable to me.

 

however, on saturday i have received a letter regarding my housing benefit stating that it has been reduced by £25 per week adding to a shortfall of £8 per week anyway,. along with a letter from the DWP saying they have awarded me £70 per week.

as you can see this leaves me with £37 per week to pay for food, bills etc.

as you can imagine this is an impossible situation to give a commitment to virgin, or any other company, for any kind of services.

 

i can only apologise for the dreadful state of affairs, but as there is no prospect of me being able to work full time due to my health, or my old benefit of approx £100 per week being reinstated i have no choce in this.

 

please be kind enough to forward this to your customer services, and billing departments, and i will await the bailiffs letters.

 

yours sincerely

Paul Barnard
