Experts Are Pretty Sure This Time

"You can run but you can't hide, the future isn't safe cos the leaders lied
the oceans will rise and the cities subside yeah" 

Or why a younger Old Knudsen gave up writing songs. Tired and cliched now but back then no one was talking about the environment much. The experts were telling us to expect another ice-age. That was back when we blindly believed experts, we even believed what Doctors told us too and that not all politicians lied and that the BBC was in no way fake news. 

Is it any wonder that so many don't believe in Climate Change, gravity or the dangers of excessive wanking? 

These days experts use social media, memes and peer pressure to make you believe ... oh you don't have to believe cos 99% of experts are positive they are right this time and it's science so it's true whether you believe it or not.  

Reminds me of the Christian passive aggressive expression 'Jesus loves you whether you like it or not.'

Kinda creepy. 

So Younger Knudsen was ahead of his time. If he had continued to write songs would there be one about tiny pocket computers that hypnotize you and make you their slave? 

"Touch me, look at me, you are scrolling down gonna hit rock bottom. You need a fix, a notification of gratification."

Thank Gog for the Interweb and its ton of free porn. Old Knudsen could have been a Bob Dylan or Randy Newman instead of whatever he is today.
