Although examples of ‘Brain Fade’ have titillated politicians and the media recently, there has been a dearth of academics leaping to obtain research funding for their pet ideas of its’ cause. Without the need for expensive studies, chance observation around the Hobsonville Electorate, has revealed a possible cause.
On occasion, the most powerful brain in my household, the computer system, suffers severe brain fade, due to loss of its’ WiFi connectivity. It forgets what it is doing, or has previously said, and displays a series of blankly flashing LED’s that give the fish-eye appearance of a politician who has lost contact with their higher functions.
Others have experienced similar malfunctions in the Hobsonville area, and also noticed that these brain fades only occurred when the Air Force was doing its periodic circuit and bumps landing practices. Hooking up a scanner and display screen reveal that bursts of digital interference accompany each low-level aircraft approach, and that these anaesthetise some WiFi equipment.
It would seem logical that when the Member for Hobsonville is on a rare visit to his electorate, these rays have a similar effect. The temporary remedy – Re-Boot the Prime Minister, but who knows the permanent?
