Drums and the science of customer psychology
I have arrived at my diary but as yet have not decided what to write about because I spent much time drumming earlier and although African drumming is very good for you the one thing you can’t do it contemplate the text of an eccentric diary while drumming. We created some new drum beats tonight though but I did not record any of them, which means that they will now be lost for ever, as we never remember what we played last time when we meet up. I have also had to deal with the stress and strains of a mad Ghost Writer who has hidden under my bed saying that there is Microsoft technology chasing him and he needs to hide from it after a day long battle of wits to install certain software on certain Pc’s for certain people in a certain place leading to an uncertain conclusion. And apparently he has to go and learn how to use a fangled new database that sounds like a dog’s name next week so he can show other folk how to use it. As he says no one in their right mind would get him to show other people how to use anything on a computer because he is left handed and hits computers with frozen food. In particular CHIPS . . . .. . . . . . . .HAH HAHHAH HAH HAH HAH HAH AH hah ha hah hha hah ah ha hahh ah ah hah ah ah ahahh ahah ahah.
I was doing IT as well today at school it appears that it is very important and everyone should know how to deal with modern technology or we are all doomed, as technology is the future of the world. I did say to the IT teacher that technology is fundamentally flawed and that it has one weakness that means it will never take over as has been predicted in many a film or book, but he said it was a very likely possibility that it might. However it was easy to prove him wrong by nipping down to the caretakers office and prodding the main fuse box with a garden spade which meant that I was able to perform some simple quantum physics on the back of a postcard and the IT teachers main server remained as silent as the school goat who was feeling a little ill after accidentally eating several green polyester jumpers in the out of town supermarket after they moved stuff about to confuse the punters, the goat getting spring cabbage and polyester confused, easily done.
Why do supermarkets do stuff (move things about) like that all it does is start fights among the shoppers as the meander aimlessly and get grumpy because they cant find the bacon or cheese or ice cream or polyester jumpers. The one thing I have noticed that does not ever move about is pet food, but apparently there are reasons for this relating to the science of customer psychology in retail environments according to the science teacher, there are some things you just don’t do……..
