The Organic Farm

Well, they had a party and an open invitation at a “local” organic farm.

So we went there.

If I disliked “organic” before, I officially hate that crap now.

Basic semantics aside (EVERYTHING is organic/biological, if it weren’t, it would’ve oozed into our reality from some other universe) I believe i cracked their secret.

Class A goods (for example Apples) are sent off to stores as normal goods.
B grade and less qualified products are covered in dirt and grime, called “organic”, and sold for a fortune! Although it’s just the regular crap, just slightly less A grade.

Thanks to an Ex of mine I know how pork tastes sometimes.
As a city boy I knew pork only as what most of us know it. But if you buy the cheap pork, you have a certain “porky” flavour to it.
Here my Ex comes into the picture.
She was living in the country side and we occassionally drove by pig farms. You know that porky flavor?
That’s the intense, rural, porky flavor.

I had a pork Schnitzel at the organic farm. Guess what taste was coming through? Right…ORGANIC. Expensive, organic porky, rural, pig shit flavor you get from cheap pork.

Now I also know that I fracking hate hippies!

I agree on their ideals, on the philosophy – but I’d like to strangle them in public!

“Yes, uhm Lemonaid lenonade please.” *barkeep gets it to her* *takes a sip* “This is carbonated! ”
“Yes, it’s lenonade!”
*returns 20 seconds later* “do you have a non refrigerated one, this one’s too cold.”
“Sorry ma’am, they’re stored cold and brought here to be on display in the fridge.”
I would’ve told her to hold it in her hands to warm it up, shake the damn bottle to get rid of the carbon acid, but that would involve “animal” labour, so it wouldn’t be vegan…besides, this crazy nut hat a Ché Guevara face ironed/sewn to the back of her jacket, over her shoulderblade, right where the strap of her bag was tearing on it.
So she is in support of a man who ordered executions on people who did not share his ideals, who ordered non-revolutionary workers to do hard labor in a camp?
Or more likely she’s anti establishment, but doesn’t know jackshit about Ché. Or only the good bits.

Speaking of anti establishment.
You organic nutjobs – you created an INDUSTRY. It is not organic anymore if it has to be driven cross country. The carbon foot print the so called “organic” shit leaves behind is so big that all organic-ness is fading away.
It isn’t possibly organic, if the interests of an INDUSTRY are at stake.

You want organic food?
Farm it!
You can’t, but want it? Find someone who DOES farm it! No, not the supermarket, again, not organic: just the regular shit, covered in dirt.
I mean like a friend. Or a small local farmer.
But not an industry.

Next up, in line at the organic supermarket on site, I see a stand from some woman who looks like she hadn’t seen fun since 1969, and on display, amongst other “goods”, was a DVD:

“We’re not vaccinating!” – well good. I hope you’re going to catch every disease there is a vaccine against. You, your spouse and your kid(s), whom you try and “protect” from poisoning due to vaccination…YOU DIM WITTED BAFOONS!

Don’t any of you dare and say that your kids didn’t get sick. Just DON’T!
There are only vaccinated people around your kid, including you, where should your kid get an infection from? Yes we need the vaccinations to KEEP the current level of infection free societies. Or even to eradicate certain diseases all to gether.
BTW: Vaccines aren’t antibiotics. In NO current vaccine is mercury an ingredient. Vaccines DO NOT cause autism, seizures, cancer, leukaemia or anything else.
Maybe a little fever. Not more.

Your kid is in special school, because your kid has always been that way, not because vaccinations brain damaged your kid.

If you believe any of the anti-vaccination propaganda, your fault. If you spread it, I believe you deserve to be beaten. If you then say “You people who vaccinate don’t love you children, because you inject them with poison!” I believe we can take custody of your kids away AND beat you.
We love our children and we give them vaccinations BECAUSE we love them. No illnesses should harm our kids. We do not believe in voodoo shit saving our kids from weird viruses.
Look, incense does not ward off viruses, weed helps in pain relief and some other stuff, but not in cases we have vaccines against.
They finally got an ebola vaccination.
If ebola was around you, would you refuse that vaccination too because it is poison?

One final thing about that. (And I know I piss off a lot of people with this, including friends of mine) If ANYONE tries to tell you ebola and aids are lies and they are only sideffects of vaccinations – lunacy. If someone says that ebola and HIV are developed viruses from some (US)lab – plausible.
Stupid and paranoid, but at least plausible.

No. Stop resisting, and show that you love your kids, and get them vaccinated against all the diseases that might end their lives or cause them misery (measels, rota, mumps, small pocks, and so fracking on).

No more organic farms for me.
No organic lies for me.
No hippies around me.
Take care, peace!

Travelplans anyone?

An acquaintance of mine recently posted something that pissed me off.

Okay, many things piss me really off, and a lot of it comes from friends and acquaintances. But this one in particular. No it’s not some “Anti vaccination” crap, that drives me into psychotic hatred, no comment there. I hate this shit, and I won’t comment on it, other than I hope these people will be shamed to the ground.

“Boarding an airplane would go a lot faster, if window seats would get in first.”

Apparently some schmucks sat down and did a study on this, fairly simple, topic.

We don’t need tips on how to board an airplane, we need plans on how to cut down on airtravel all together!

A group of people sits in a friggin metal tube that is propelled through the air by burning crazy amounts of dead dinosaur age plankton. Who cares how to get into that tube faster? You are pissing in the face of chance, nature and luck, and you worry that a few minutes might get shaved off if you follow a certain order when getting into that tube?
You are friggin pricks, people.

Aviation is the cause of some of our greatest troubles, sure goods can get transported faster, to exotic locations. Armies, doctors, relief, or refugees can be brought in and out of desaster zones.
Boarding an airplane for recreational travels – kiss my schlong!
You are poluting the atmosphere, increasing your carbon footprint by a thousandfold, just so you can tweet from the beach – a task you could as easily have done from the public swimming pool in your area. With the same sun shining down on you, the same crying, shouting children and parents. The same stench of cheap frying fat and ketchup.

No, you needed to make the lives of some other place’s people more miserable by acting like royalty in some resort, someplace “exotic”. And you barely leave that resort, to see the ACTUAL culture, landscape, etc.
No. You people just lie at the beach or the resort pool. Sizzling in the sun like ugly bacon.

As a society we have derailed from efficiency to convenience.
Thanks in part to aviation, entire nations economies are based on tourism, therefore relying on the general climate, sudden weather, tourist moods and so on. Instead of basing a country’s entire economy on agrar culture, depending only on the weather.

No snow in winter, too warm even for snow canons, no tourists. No spa in your skiing logde? Bad reviews, hence no tourists.
An oiltanker decides to land on a riff twenty nautic miles “upstream”? Good bye beaches, good bye tourists. Tsunami washing away your coastline? Gooooood bye tourism.
A volcano blowing up ash in the air grounding half a continent’s commercial airplanes? Arividerci tourists! And economy.

Not only commercial aviation, but tourism in general are too unstable to rely on. Too idiotic to base your life upon it.

Get you fraking act together and use the train, if isn’t burning anything to move that is, and maybe look out the window. There is so much to see, to just pass it over in a tube, too far away to tell if it is a wonderful scenery or boring grass land.

Boarding an airplane would be faster if you quit flying.
Sit in a train, see the landscape, have several stops in various stations to see changes in architecture and culture. TRAVEL IS GOOD! Airtravel is bad.

Hope you have a nice trip where every you may go. However you may go there.
