Prince Andrew, the latest victim of…Aiscophilia

leave a comment »

Prince Andrew linked to sex predator. And it’s not even Koo Stark. Big news? Shouldn’t be, really.

Aiscophilia, the (genetic?) predisposition for getting oneself entangled in a scandal, has been plaguing the British Royal Family for a long time: Harry the Nazi in 2005, the violent serial urinating cousin head of the House of Hanover, Edward the abdicating King of 1936, Albert Victor “the dissipated” grandchild of Queen Victoria.

And Philip too. Of course, he’s family too: third cousin to Elizabeth.

Blame the genes!!!

Worried about the future?

with one comment

Here’s the one thing not to worry about: there will always be an inexhaustible supply of people telling the rest of the world that things are going in the wrong direction.

A quick look at the New York Times’ archives comes up with similar thoughts in 1921, 1931, 1979, 1981

Anyway, present-day “collapse of civilization” fears can be traced back to 1885. I guess at least that bit of “civilization” never collapses..
