    Hint: The ​FORUM reads like the Table of Contents for the cyBook FEAR & LOATHING IN THE GREAT ECONOMIC DOWNTURN OF THE CYBER AGE​:


    But, reading through all that is like taking the time to read a whole book. So here is the ​READER'S DIGEST CONDENSED VERSION.

    One of ​THE OLD JAZZ MAN'S last recordings for the Holiday Season is where he played piano and then, Grandpa to some of you, Dad or "Red" from the Jefferson Club (Petroleum Club) to others, went back and dubbed in playing bass to this piece (make sure you scroll all the way down to the video at the very bottom):

    But then we need to understand the inside joke where the AAAA (Apocalypse and Armageddon Assurance Associates, LLC) was born because of Harold Camping's Evangelistic Radio Ministry's prediction for ​THE RAPTURE back in 2011 CE. A lot of people sold everything they had and gave it to his Radio Ministry (with no idea why people thought a Ministry whose whole staff was going to be Raptured anyway, needed money). So Dawson INTELLIGENTLY DESIGNED up some "RAPTURE INSURANCE" and as a lark his Web Masteress created the A&A Web Site so you, Our Readers, could share in Dawson's satire boilerplate of RAPTURE INSURANCE, and even buy a gift Rapture Insurance certificate or mug if you like, or OFFICE GIFT for that idiot who is always trying to SAVE YOU from yourself and asking you to come with him to church ("It's a really nice church").

    Like any other insurance: ​​​You should always increase your "Rapture Insurance" http://www.apocalypseandarmage.....insurance/

    If some of these A&A pieces are longer than the 140 character Tweets or 70 character Text Messages you are used to, we made sure to include some shorter (& some longer) satire pieces for you too. And since we are writing here about ​THIS ECONOMIC (Corporate shoot yourself in the foot) DOWNTURN:

    ​Economy Shrinks While Market Trading Bubble-gum cards is Up!​ http://tinyurl.com/ndnv6x9

    Or borrowing from Hunter S. Thompson a couple of paragraphs from his ​FEAR & LOATHING ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL '72 to demonstrate that over 40 years later nothing has really changed in the Election Cycle of America's experiment with a Constitutional semi-Democratically elected Republic or its PR & Press coverage:

    But too, in ​THE CYBER AGE we run into the problems of App's instructions being written by one I.T. nerd to try and impress his fellow I.T. nerds, but not necessarily actually written to be User Friendly:

    Then we can't help but come across--from time to time--some Astrophysicist who has decided some star, in the Universe, ​CAN BE OLDER THAN THE UNIVERSE ITSELF that our friendly ex-Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Imaging Systems field service engineer feels he needs to comment about:

    And since we are in the holiday season as I write this:

    Or our Alien Invasion Feature Film satire from all the way back when the synergy packaged '50's Grade of Sci-Fi B(ullshit)-Movie INDEPENDENCE DAY was released:​

    A couple of short--but fun--videos for both our religious and atheist readers:

    And since we are, after all, the ​APOCALYPSE & ARMAGEDDON ASSURANCE ASSOCIATES the Introduction to Our very own:
