Irregular annoyed post 25 March 2015

Brightly lit day, I’d estimate it to be somewhen between 10am and 1 pm:
A dude rides on a Bike, a Bartender at an open air Bar opens a bottle with orange booze in it, next to the “on” Mic for an orange speaker-system in the street.
Orange booze is poured in glasses with fresh ice in them.
Bike-guy steals an orange hat from a girl conversing with another girl at a table in front of a Café. As she follows he rings his bell.
More booze is poured in ice filled glasses.
A stack of boxes containing oranges on a cart is rolling down a street, people (dude with ridicoulus hair; woman in “summerdress”) run after it. As the cart is forced to a stop by an obstacle, two women eagerly catch the oranges using bags (plastic by the looks of it).
Later these people (chasers and catching women) calmly walk down a sidewalk, passing oranges between them by throwing.
Different people steal orange hopping balls from an open delivery truck, smiling like exceptional individuals. Delivery guy sees this, laughs and takes two of the balls for himself, running after them while they are hopping down the road on said balls.
Booze in glasses is now handed out to some people (IN BROAD DAYLIGHT).
Suddenly the balls are baloons filled with “lighter than air” gass, people with booze-glasses walk joyfully around the baloons and several shelves (!) of identical bottles with the orange booze.
A dude on a bike (bike guy from before?) tows an orange sofa by. More booze drinking people, on the sofa and off.
All the while an annoying french song is playing.

Did you guess what it is?
Yes, the overly annoying Aperol advertising.

STOP GIVING ME THE SAME CRAP OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN ON YOUTUBE!

I never have tasted Aperol, and thanks to this advert – I NEVER WILL! So shove it!

If you could rage quit youtube, I’d do it atm.

Take care and drink ANYTHING BUT APEROL!

All this rage inducing shite aside, did you think about what your advert is telling people? THAT THESE PEOPLE HAVE ALCOHOL PROBLEMS! They hear a Bartender (pusher) open a bottle and stream in droves to the bar to get their fix IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY! How can these people get drunk that early? Aperol! “Joy is contagious!” Yeah, contagiously stupid.

Now stop doing idiotic adverts, and for the love the gods – stop dishing out the same advert thousands of times…

Life ain’t that hard: Selfie-sh

This selfie craze is getting out of hand.

I know that you younger folks have a disconnected feeling of self, and thus are, oddly enough, self obsessed. But walking down a street, like I witnessed with mine own eyes (!), making faces like spastic attacks, while having one arm extended with the cellphone/camera isn’t helping your selfrecognition.
It’s helping you find the fastest way to the nearest doctor. And I ain’t talking “Doctor Who” here. Long story short:

Stop taking Selfies!

You want nice pictures of yourselves? Here’s a short simple guide:
1. Take people with you!
2. Go to nice (/exotic/weird/”cool”/alloftheabove) locations
3. Take pictures of one another!
4. Don’t pose, don’t act. Just be.
5. Minimalistic brush up. (Close to no photoshop)
6. If you must, ask either a stranger, or use the timer and a stand to take a selfie, no holding of the camera/cellphone or use of mirror/trans-dimensional-portal.

Take this as advice from someone who managed to evade pictures/photos/cameras from ages 14-20…

It’s topical…

…my kid has a fever, and this is a really unnerving time for me.
It also brings me to those Schmucks who tried sailing the world…

Here is a rule to write down into your “sailing around the world” book: If you take your toddler on a sailing trip around the world, and the navy/coast guard has to rescue you, they get to take the kids away from you!

A child at the age of one year needs two things to thrive: a home (that is a PLACE not a cabin in a boat) and a steady social group (that is larger than parents and sibling).
That aside, kids do get sick very quickly, and quite often – stay in a one hour driving range of a doctor/pediatrician. Period!

So, unless you’re fleeing a war zone, an undesirable place or the mafia (you can try), or have made it out in the last second before a horrible disaster struck your home, or you are caught in the late 1800s – leave the kids at home ashore.

Just because you are a self absorbed, irresponsible, twit, too self important to reflect beyond personal ramifications, too shortsighted to think about your children and their needs – you’re taking them with you.
It’s people like that who make me wish there’d be a drivers license for parents, you need to pass with at least a C grade or better to get permission to breed.

Next time some of y’all want to take a sailing trip around the world, do it BEFORE you have any kids! If you die due to lack of intelligence, passive eugenics, or rather the evolutionary process, was in action, and the idiot genes do not get passed on. Let me put in another rule here for the sailors out there: leave the radio at shore too, you want to do it like they did it in the late 19th century? Leave the radio ashore!

I do hope the little kid gets/got better, as my own is improving his condition as I wrote these lines, but I also hope that the custody was/will be taken from the parents.

Take care,
A.
