by far the most cryptic post I've seen from you @Dutchbeat

I'm wondering if you'll elaborate?  ???

The news is very different depending on where one lives. I mean the content and how it is reported.   :-\

Maybe and maybe not... @Bill from November Sound
@Dutchbeat  Is it perhaps the opposite of the fly on the wall?
And if so, at the times of which recording would you have been the elephant in the room?
I look forward to you answer!!!!!
Kind regards, Gus

but it does make sense.. to me  ;D

Problem, of course, @Dutchbeat is that in America we basically  have to vote for elephants or donkeys ...  :o ..... neither of which make me feel very confident.  ::)

Not very good choices, really.  :-\

Thank you @Dutchbeat for pointing to the Elephant.  The more the better.

I have already shared way to much on this subject in another thread with @Monty Cash Music

I’ll say no more... but I am listening.

Great observation  @Bill from November Sound on our voting options in America.
 
When it comes to recording ... I am my own elephant...  :bonk: still working on that    ::)

@Dutchbeat Might you be referring to this famous poem by Godfrey Saxe? It more or less teaches the value of science over assumption.

The Blind Men and the Elephant

It was six men of Indostan
To learning much inclined,
Who went to see the Elephant
(Though all of them were blind),
That each by observation
Might satisfy his mind

The First approached the Elephant,
And happening to fall
Against his broad and sturdy side,
At once began to bawl:
"God bless me! but the Elephant
Is very like a wall!"

The Second, feeling of the tusk,
Cried, "Ho! what have we here
So very round and smooth and sharp?
To me 'tis mighty clear
This wonder of an Elephant
Is very like a spear!"

The Third approached the animal,
And happening to take
The squirming trunk within his hands,
Thus boldly up and spake:
"I see," quoth he, "the Elephant
Is very like a snake!"

The Fourth reached out an eager hand,
And felt about the knee.
"What most this wondrous beast is like
Is mighty plain," quoth he;
"'Tis clear enough the Elephant
Is very like a tree!"

The Fifth, who chanced to touch the ear,
Said: "E'en the blindest man
Can tell what this resembles most;
Deny the fact who can
This marvel of an Elephant
Is very like a fan!"

The Sixth no sooner had begun
About the beast to grope,
Than, seizing on the swinging tail
That fell within his scope,
"I see," quoth he, "the Elephant
Is very like a rope!"

And so these men of Indostan
Disputed loud and long,
Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right,
And all were in the wrong!

I love this story!  :yes:

And yet .. no one ever cares about the feelings of the elephant  :no: ...  :-\ ... people are there pulling his tail and stuff.  :( 

And likewise today. ....

Right you are, @Bill from November Sound , elephant lives matter too! The Apple Mafia made elegant lives out of that. Institutional sarcasm if you ASK me. Don’t know why ASK is with capitals.
Elegant lives because of the ballroom challenge I guess?

@Dutchbeat Numberwise? Nah, hospital data will now have to be sent to the HHS, so the numbers will go down now, eventually, to be close to 15 in November. They're doing a great job, and it's beautiful, the best in the world actually  :doublebonk:.

I'm against making fun of people's names.
Everyone is bad enough with the politics now a days..... but calling everyone "karen" or "kevin" just because you don't like them is wrong.
I know plenty of wonderful people with the names Karen and Kevin. I was hoping that practice was just an ignorant American facebook keyboard warrior thing. Oh well.

@Bill from November Sound I agree that people's names should not be object of mockery. I don't think everybody is called a Kevin or a Karen here though. The fact that you can use these names in a pejorative way does not mean that it applies to all people who carry that name. I know that my name in English can stand for being a nerd, and fact is that likely I am, so I would not be offended at all. But I know too many Erics who are not quite like that.

We have a similar way of calling people names like that, Henk & Ingrid. Usually these names refer to people who decide to reject everything they do not agree with or understand, are biassed, and who hold opnions that are not quite well founded, because they lack the insight to understand. That is NOT to say that all Henks and Ingrids are like that.

The video is a parody, but I must say that I can quite understand why it was made. I belong to a risk group in two different ways, and if I met someone who refused to wear a mask, simply because he says he has the right not to do so, knowing that he might infect me, i'd consider that downright indifference to my health. I don't think I'd be very nice to this person.

I'm simply referring to this.  :(
I personally think it is sad. If you don't like someone there is a whole host of colorful names you can call them.
