I just managed to WATCH an online advert; one which extols the strong points of owning the Apple WATCH Series 8; italicized, capitalized words to emphasize my main point; namely, how WATCH can be both noun and verb.
Granted, what follows tends to sound a bit paranoid / Orwellian, but, let’s hash out that noun and verb anyway; how it all brings to mind that designing Apple has designed a WATCH to WATCH each wearer; in a way too intimate manner. All in all, this sounds way too damned creepy. Consider how this device can not only track down each wearer’s locale, but also, meticulously record human biorhythms.
I mean WTF could be more intimate and intrusive than a WATCH maintaining a WATCH-ful eye that zeroes in on the menstrual cycle; you know, just to officially document each and every ovulation and (even creepier / alarming) all missed periods / suspected pregnancies.
And you gotta already know that such medical data could really come in handy, once it falls into the wrong hands; aka the current crop of misogynistic, intolerant, stalker, Trumper Republicans; entities renown for being religiously “pro-life”; i.e. ONLY from conception to birth.
Yep, the split second that ol’ umbilical cord gets cut, it’s then high time for these meddlesome bastards (mostly knuckle dragging, crotchety males) to hightail it back (on all fours?) to their man caves.
Indeed, postpartum, these control freaks don’t give a flying F about whether or not hard working mommies and daddies are able to find permanent, full time living wage, benefits included jobs; locate affordable child care facilities; establish a well-fed, good life for their children; ensure humankind winds up with endless generations of well-schooled, critical thinkers who’ll blossum into happy and healthy adulthood; become lifelong, productive citizens within their communities; wind up well-respected up till the very last breath they’ll take.
One would think that pro-lifer legislators / leaders would make it their top priority to usher in and sustain an environmentally, medically, ideologically and socioeconomically sound global community.
Yeah… right… such a realm exists ONLY prior our alarm clocks going off each same old, same old day.
Seeing how my non-invasive Casio Databank 150 WATCH (manufactured and purchased back in 1997) is now telling me it’s high time to round trip this here 3-minute read; regrettably so, we’ll now be exiting this post’s fleetingly, ethereal Nirvana and reentering our ever-present, daily grind Dystopia.
Long blog short, if/when we eventually wind up All On Apple’s Watch, expect a society that’s even more intrusive than it already is; where even non-wearers of this new device, once in close proximity of the wearers, will translate out as the needless tracking of substantial segments of our populace.
Such an existence doth seem reminiscent of some lyrical “sentiments” re an obsessed stalker…
“Every breath you takeGordon Sumner • Every Breath You Take • released by the Police in 1983 [Read All Lyrics Here]
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I’ll be watching you.”
Oh, btw, one last lyrical sentiment…
“Just because you’re paranoidKurt Cobain • Territorial Pissings • released by Nirvana in 1991 [Read All Lyrics Here]
Don’t mean they’re not after you”
Be humans Vaxxed OR Unvaxxed, We
can still shed and spread the batcrap
crazy contagious coronavirus which,
in turn, spawns new variants; which,
in turn, could, eventually, render the
available vaccines worthless; which,
in turn, will drag out the pandemic’s
needless suffering, illness and death!
HENCE… this easy as pie, cover your
nose and pie-hole/hole-up heads-up:
Stay Publicly / Properly Masked!
Stay Safe at Home!
