Shock, Horror! Millennials Safe Space Violated As Facebook Algo Accident Exposes Them To Diverse Ideas Late last month (August 2016,) the Zuckerbugger's zoons put an algorithm in charge of the Facebook “trending” feature, to select the most popular topics, articles and keywords on the web in a narrow timeframe and with due respect for the 'safe space' of millenials who can be traumatised if they encounter microaggrrrrressions in the form of controversial ideas or unorthodox opinions ...

Google, Facebook, Amazon: algorithms will soon rule our lives so we'd better understand how they work
One of the most interesting announcements in last week's Budget – well, for me at least, as someone who has no savings and doesn’t play bingo or drink much – was the new Alan Turing Institute: £220 million of government support will be invested into "big data and algorithm" research.

G20 Leaders Dismiss Obama As An “Irrelevant Child” At Beijing Summit
China set the tone when airport officials refused to let Barack Obama's handlers flout Chises law so the US President's arrival in Beijing for the G20 Summit to be trurned into a stahe managed celebration of The Obamessiah;s greatness. This is our airport, this is our country", a Chinese official yelled as Obama's entourage attempted to usher The White House press corps into an area that was clearly marked out of bounds.

Underage Migrant Gang Sexually Assault German Women On City Street
In a worrying echo of antisocial behaviour by Muslim immigrants at Swedish music festivals throughout the summer it has been reported that five women were sexually assaulted by a gang of young Muslim asylum seekers in Germany. Police say the migrants threatened to beat the women with beer and champagne bottles ...

TTIP - This so -called free trade deal is a full-frontal assault on democracy
The purpose of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is not so much as to remove tariffs and other protectionist devices as to remove the regulatory differences between the US and European nations. And that is quite significant for us as British and E.U. comsuper protection, fair trade, environment and employment laws have always tried to strike a balance between the interests of consumers, workers and business.

If This Does Not Disqualify Hillary For The Presidency, It's Hard To Know What Will
Even the conservative Wall Street Journal is waking up to the massive deception that is being perpetrated on voters by the American political establishment, media and judiciary. Unfortunately the around half or the voters seem to be willingly complicit in this deception. In fact the USA collectively appears capable of a level of cognitive dissonance on an unprecedented scale in relation to the crimes and corrupt practices of Hillary Clinton ...

Smart Phones Will Not Make Banking Safer
Yet the war on cash goes on. The latest move is to encourage people to use their smartphone to do their online banking. My first reaction on reading this was, "They're having a laugh aren't they?" laptops and tablets are ridiculously easy to hijack, smartphones don't even need to be hacked, like tired old slappers whose sexual allure has gone south, but who still crave attention, they will offer themselves without needing to be asked.

Hillary Clinton's Oh Shit Moment. How The Candidate Wiped Her Server With BleachBit Despite Subpoena

In the USA ignoring a subpoena can have similar consequences. But increasingly throught the developed world we are finding the law does not apply to everybody equally. The story of how Hillary's "personal" emails came to be deleted using, the now infamous, BleachBit, even after a subpoema had been issued requiring the Democratic Party candidate to hand over certain documents relating to her time as Secretary of State is quite the tale.

Top Academic: Muslims Would Not Tolerate Multiculturalism in Islamic Countries
Leading Iranian academic Afshin Ellian has warned that cultural Marxist delusions of “multiculturalism” are a one-way street as left wing activist in the secular Christian nations of the west clamour for appeasement of Islamic extremists. Muslims in Europe oppress historic minorities in their own lands and have no intention of showing “tolerance”

Can Americans Overthrow The Evil That Rules Them?
The anti - establishment, anti - globalisation mood that manifested itself in the Brexit vote is sweeping across Europe, the cosy government - corporate cartel is desperately trying to control the narrative, but against the combined strength of millions of new media commentators all challenging the official; narrative, the dark forces of globalism are on the back foot.

Swedish Commentator: Migrants Enforcing Sharia Law, Bill Clinton ‘Evil’ For Wishing Same On U.S. Swedish writer and news commentator Ingrid Kristina Carlqvist, speaking on an internet radio station, said that Islamists and migrants "have already succeeded in introducing Sharia law to Sweden". Speaking to Breitbart London Editor-in-Chief Raheem Kassam, she explained that, because Swedish girls are becoming afraid to go to certain places where there have been rapes and attacks, key tenets of Islamic law are effectively being enforced.

The Difference In Voting For Hillbillary or Trump Is Only One Promises War With Russia
Essential reading for our american readers who must soon decide who they want as their next president. Important too for non Americans who cannot influence the outcome of the election but are entitled to know why their arses might be blown from here to eternity sometime in the next few years.

Wiki Leak Found Email Linking Obama, Clinton To ISIS
Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton play the injured innocent when questions about American links with ISIS arise. They adopt a mak of cluelessness when evidence of the USA's involvement in forming a coalition of Islamic extremist groups for the purpose of ousting Assad, pretend the Pentagon and State Department are in control of the middle east situation, and claim that Russia's role has been peripheral and it is American actions that have pushed ISIS back and will defeat them.

TTIP Is Dead: Trade Talks Between EU And U.S. Have Collapsed, Germany Says
The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations, the so called free trade deal between the EU and the USA, have collapsed, German’s economic minister has announced. The cause of the collapse has been cited as failure to move forward on any of the major planks of the deal, which has been dogged by controversy and widespread opposition from all sides of the political spectrum.

Wikileak Found Email Linking Obama, Clinton To ISIS
We love washing Hillary Clinton's dirty linen in public, and from wht we hear Mrs Clinon's double incontinence problems mean she has a lot of dirty laundry, no wonder she feartures prominently in blog like this so often. The latest in a long line of scandals to which Clinton is linked relates to the role of the former Secretary of State and President Obama in founding ISIS.

Progressive' Gay Mayor Of Seattle Craps On Christians And Atheists In Self Righteous Bid To Be Fair To Muslims
In an effort to appease followers of Islamic Sharia law, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray is searching for ways to help them buy houses. According to Sharia law, muslims are forbidden to pay interest on loans, thus making it impossible for most of them to buy a house. Mayor Murray wants to meet with lenders to solve this “problem”, and possibly put the rest of the public on the hook for the debt.

Partisan US Media Coverage Of Candidate Health Goes From Hysterical To Bizarre
The recent media frenzy surrounding Clinton and Trump's health records has accomplished little more than to, once again, expose a news corps that is becoming increasingly partisan with each passing day. Right-leaning media outlets have spent countless hours reporting on the various health issues experienced by Clinton over the years and pointing to pictures of her falling down on the campaign trail or seemingly zoning out at times as evidence of her frailty.

Sweden Likely To Remain Neutral On Nord Stream-2' Pipeline Despite US Pressure
Sweden absolutely refuses to be involved in geopolitical games, which is why it would be difficult for the war loving, neo - con US administration of the Nigger-In-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama to pressure Sweden to oppose Russia's proposed Nord Stream-2 project, National Energy Security Foundation Russia expert Igor Yushkov told the newspaper Svobodnaya Pressa. According to Yushkov the Americans have few opportunities to exert pressure on Sweden.

Nigel Farage Swipes Back At Irrational, Screeching, Crazy Clinton
US Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton launched a hysterical, irrational attack, filled with half truths and blatant lies, against the most prominent figure in the campaign to get Britain out of the EU (Brexit), UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage, during a speech at a rally today. Mrs Clinton, responding to Farage's address to a large and enthusiastic audience at a Donald Trump rally, may have been rattled at the prospect of having such a hihly effective campaigner in the rival camp ...

Human Rights bombshell dropped by Theresa May’s government while the media whined on about Traingate
Thus screeched a headline at The Canary, a hard left news website. The writer, Kerry Anne Mendoza, who has never knowingly written an unbiased word and trades in distortions, half - truths and misdirection, went on to gove the impression that the "evil Conservative gobvernment" is about to strip British citizens of all human and civil rights while 'evil right wing media' obesess over Jeremy Corbyn's newly revealed hypocrisy.

More Mega-Banks Join The Anti-Dollar Alliance
Right now, most international financial transactions must pass through the US banking system’s network of correspondent accounts. London may be the global capital for currency trading, but the fact that international trades are settled inm US Dollars, the defacto global currency, gives the US government an incredible amount of power. And as we have seen over the past few decades they have not been shy about using and abusing that power.

White House Official Cozied Up to Google Before Antitrust Lawsuit Was Shelved
As The Federal Trade Commission considered whether to charge Google with violating antitrust laws in January 2013, the Obama White House, which as we have reported previously has a mutually beneficial relationship with the world domination freaks who run Google was watching closely, and apparently was eager to protect the interests of Obama's friends.

Leonora (historic fiction) by Gina Pounds - Review

Comedy Menu:

Comedy writing, verse, poetry, comic songs, cartoons, comic fiction, comic verse. If you are looking for a laugh and you can't find one here you are very hard to please.

Wide World


Join our writers as they take you around the world in words and pictures. No typical travelogue this because we try wander away from the usual tourist destinations, to delve a little deeper into the nature of the place, locals you might travel to, investigate the culture, how communities developed and what has made things the way they are. Look for overlaps here with our history, food and music menus as we try to recreate a little of the atmosphere. Nobody has yet found a way to digitise smells but as soon as the technology is abailable we will bring you that aspect of the ambience too.

Health and Wellbeing


How to make healthy eating fun, exercise that is not a chore, lessons in how to chill, sensible drinking. Health and Wellbeing are one of the main concerns that cause stress in this increasingly crazy world. In this menu find articles, spoken word and video on how to cope with the stresses of modern life, how to make a personal refuge for yourself even in a crowded place and how to fend off the pressures of the aggressive consumer society we inhabit.

The Natural World


Anything to do with nature can find a place here, from exploring a cave complex to articles and video on wildlife. There are obvious overlaps here with travel, health and wellbeing and the environment menus but that is the nature of The Greenteeth Labyrinth. Just as a walk in the woods might lead one of our writers to record the habits of an animal colony or write on the breeding cycle of birds, so in the Labyrinth you never know where a link might lead you to.


Real Lives - the biography menu

Biographical writing on the lives of the famous and the unknown (who often have the more interesting stories to tell,) memoir, stories told in verse, in pictures with commentary, in any way because Greenteeth Labyrinth is about using the power and versatility of new media to communicate in new ways. Everybody has a story to tell and their own way of telling it. Cameraderie, shared hardship, life on the factory floor or in the field, triumph, tragedy, survival, if it is true life it belongs here and we will find the best way of presenting it. THIS MENU is not live yet but find A Stroke Of Luck, Ian Thorpe's memoir of recovery from a massive brain haemorrhage available to read free online. Go to A Stroke Of Luck - Chapter 1

Past Perspectives: New Angles On History
History as it is taught in conventional schools and colleges is mostly wrong. Not slightly wrong, not just spun a bit to fit a political agenda but blatantly wrong. Worse, it is deliberately wrong. The Roman Empire, usually presented as the great civilising force in the western world, the enlightened society that dissed its enemies as Barbarians and Heathens was in many ways actually less civilised that the Bararians it conquered. The Celts of Norhern Europe, the Moors of North Africa and the Persians all had well organised societies and in many ways were ahead of Rome in technology and scholarship.
The American War Of Independence was not fought for religious freedom of in the first instance for freedom of any kind. The rebels were asking for seats in the British Parliament for the colonies, "no taxation without representation." The rebel leaders were British Gentleman Adventurers and many of the senior British Officers were supporters of the Stewart claim to the throne, regarding the Hanoverians as usurpers. Thus they were tacitly sympathetic to the rebellion. These are just two of the instances in which history needs to be viewed from a different perspective if a true picture is to be seen. There is much more in this menu.

A Quick Tour Of The Church of Saint Mary and All Saints, Whalley, Lancashire, UK A quick tour of the parish church of St Mary and All Saints in Whalley gives us a glimpse of the history of this area.There has been a Christian church on this site since the seventh century and though the eariest parts of the current building are from the tenth century stones from the older church were used in the construction. Three ancient Saxon crosses that stand in the church grounds are also from the tenth century


Philo & Sophia - Philosophy can be fun

From the core philosophies of the great religions to the ideas of modern existentialists, philosophy is regarded as dull, heavy and irrelevant. But philosophy is ideas and ideas are the most exciting things in the world. In the Greenteeth Labyrinth we try to bring you philosophy lite, wisdom without weight. From the origins of the Universe to the myseries of quantum physics, from the earliest forms of Goddess worship to the quasi - religious ideas of self help gurus, all is examined here. You will even find some articles in this menu showing up in the comedy pages too.The overall message of Philo and Sophia though can be summed up in the words of Hypatia of Alexandria, proto-feminist of the ancient world who said, "All formal and dogmatic religions are fallacious, to teach superstitions as truth is the most terrible thing. Reserve your right to think, for even to think wrongly is better than not to think at all."
What happened to her for thinking like that? Enter the menu to find out.

Fools and Dreamers - the poetry pages


Like philosophy, poetry is a type of literature easily shunned as boring. Often that dismissal is accurate, particularly in the case of modernists, whose self-indulgent navel gazing verse is deliberately made so obscure and complex it is doubtful even the poets themselves understand WTF they are banging on about. On the other hand there are maverick bands of poets, freal traditionalists, wandering the net attacking the unwary readers with their polysyllabic peregrenations through poetry's more arcane medieval forms. Bad traditional petry can be as much a turnoff as modern do-it-yourself psychology poems. At Greenteeth we publish the poets we think are fun, especially those who bring us their work in audio or video form. Poetry is about rhythm, pace and timing as much as language. Words can lie dead on a page. Let us bring them to life for you and maybe help you find a new form of entertainment to enjoy.

The Science and Technology Menu
Science and Technology is not a collection of work lauding all things scientific but is somewhere you will find objective and independent writing on technologies including sustainable power generation, internet developments, IT hardware, transport technology, food production and all areas of research and development while articles on natural sciences will set out to challege orthodox thinking. If you are one of those people who is trying to establish science as a rival to religion you will not feel at home here but if you like to keep up with at the latest developments from a wide perspective while reasing about them in a style that does not attempt to blind readers with science you will be in your element.

Humanitas - Everything That makes Us Human
Who are we, where do we come from, what's it all about, is there any point to all that we do ? Should we give a damn?
There is a very nasty tasting mindset being bred in the academic world, and particularly in the fields of science and technology, that insidiously suggests all the qualities that make being human so wonderful are in fact weaknesses and should be resisted if not eliminated. "We should all try to live scientifically" one eminent scientist recently suggested as if there was anything about life that could even loosely be described as scientific. In the end the scientists and tech-heads, with their insane belief in reason, logic and evidence based knowledge are little different to religious fundamentalists in the way they cling desperately to their certainties while the rest of us blunder hopefully through life trying to make some sense of it all.
Sub Menus: [ People and Customs ] ... [ Who We Are ] ... [ Work and Play ]

Faith and Spirituality
Wander through the writing of followers of various faiths, belief systems and traditions and maybe feel inspired to explore your own spirituality. You will find no preaching here, while all are welcome to submit to us their point of view, christian, muslim, jewish, hindi, buddhist, pagan and all their variations any work that tries to suggest one faith has the right understanding of life, the universe and everything while all the others are wrong will be rejected.

[ Them - A poem for the surveillance society]
One of the biggest worries to afflict people living in modern economically developed nations is the loss of privacy.
